Jesse Jackson: 'Plantation' comments insult black voters
By: Juana Summers September 30, 2011 04:20 PM EDT
Black voters have not been brainwashed, and suggesting as much as Herman Cain and Pat Buchanan have recently is demeaning and derogatory, Jesse Jackson said Friday.
Those are very strong words, the veteran civil rights activist told POLITICO. Its both demeaning and insulting.
Cain, the former CEO of Godfathers Pizza and a Republican presidential candidate, on Wednesday told CNN that black voters have been brainwashed into not being open-minded, not even considering a conservative point of view.
I have received some of that same vitriol simply because I am running for the Republican nomination as a conservative, Cain told CNNs Wolf Blitzer. So its just brainwashing and people not being open-minded, pure and simple.
On Thursday, Buchanan, an MSNBC contributor, endorsed that view.
I admire Herman Cain for standing up and going against, if you will, the conventional wisdom, and being a tough African-American businessman who succeeded in a tough world, Buchanan said.
He said blacks had been hurt by programs championed by Democratic presidents like Lyndon B. Johnson.
Great Society liberalism has been devastating for the African-American family. I think what hes saying that they bought an awful lot of liberal propaganda on the liberal plantation, and I think hes right, Buchanan said.
Jackson criticized Buchanan for openly misconstruing Johnsons record, whom he called one of the most transformative presidents of the last century.

And Jesse Jackass insults my intelligence.
Lighten up Jesse. Don’t you have a sexual harassment lawsuit or something you need to be taking care of?
Only Obama gives this fool any credibility and that is now zero.
You and yours have been on the plantation for a long time, Jesse, you’re too dumb to see it, and your massas are gong to make sure you stay that way.
IIRC, Hillary said “Plantation” at a black caucus.
An Overseer of the Democrat Plantation has spoken....
In the same sense that Scipio Africanus was "transformative" of Carthage in the Punic Wars, and the sense that Sherman was "transformative" of Georgia in 1864.
But ‘take off your bedroom slippers’ isn’t racial, eh Jesse?
The welfare rolls, housing projects and inner-city schools are the plantation, and the Democrats are the slave-holders.
Herman Cain just wants to set his people free.
The fact of the matter is that poverty was declining until LBJ's War on Poverty began. After that, poverty stopped declining. Despite ten trillions of dollars, poverty is winning that war, as "fought by the federales and the poverty industry.
It's meant to be, boss.
Not so much brain washed as bribed into staying on the plantation where anything and everything they need are ladled out in does just big enough to keep them down.Same thing is done with poor whites.
What would we expect from the employee of the master of the demon plantation. Jesse is just doing whatever his masters tell him to do and when he isn’t doing that...then he is doing a shake down of some corporation.
Not so much brain washed as bribed into staying on the plantation where anything and everything they need are ladled out in doses just big enough to keep them down.Same thing is done with poor whites.
did he say this in Hymie Town?
Everything upsets black DEMOCRAT voters.
