Black Grassroots Activist: Jesse Jackson Family 'Traitors' to Chicago
Breitbart ^

Posted on 12/31/2012 7:30:08 AM PST by chessplayer

Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.’s wife Sandi, a Chicago alderman, was called a traitor to the community by local grassroots activist Mack Glover. Glover's accusation came during a December meeting about the housing and foreclosure problems in the black communities of Chicago’s south and west sides. His comments were directed at Jackson’s facilitation of the largest “planned urban development” (PUD) in the country.

Glover accused Sandi Jackson of being a sellout for helping the project move forward and thereby giving a “white developer $100 million” to build a project in the black community, where Glover and other grassroots activists at the meeting say “black people will not be getting any jobs.” Glover’s comments blasting Sandi Jackson received applause from the entire room of nearly 200 black Chicagoans.

Ah yes, the Jackson name always equates to racism.

If Glover were smart, he’d figure out that the Dimocrat party is a traitor to black people.

Is this guy upset at Valerie Jarrett and the money she took for her slums?

It is going to be a very dark (no pun intended) future for the USA as more and more of these “black first and foremost” knuckle dragging bigots get into office.

We have seen Detroit, Buffalo, and many other cities being dragged down into the cesspool of “black first and foremost” thinking.

Obviously, this is one of a couple of cultures that has no intention of thinking what is best for the country but is stuck on what is best for my group.

We have seen what a Black-centric Justice Department is willing to do on any issue which may affect one of their people.

We have seen what a Black-centric White House is willing to do on any issue which may affect one of their people.

MLK would not be please but then again, he was an American first who happened to be black.

Black people with construction skills will have access to plenty of jobs.

Let me see if I have this right. Replacing an abandoned steel mill and slum area with:
“The ambitious plan promises nearly 13,575 new residences, a new high school, 17.5 million square feet of retail space, 125 acres of new parks, a 1,500 boat slip marina, as well as a potential site for the Barack H. Obama Presidential Library.” is bad?
Because the Brothas and Sistas there don't have the skills to or even the brains to apply for a job, Sandi Jackson is a traitor and a sellout. But I do figure that there is more to this story than we know. Bribes? Kickbacks?

Watched a TV interview a few months ago of four older (40’ish) Black women from Chicago who had gone to school and learned to do all kinds of finishing work inside new residential construction. Said they could not get jobs in the construction industry because they were not in any Union. One of them who had her back to the camera said the Union business manager told her to go get a job hoeing in somebody’s garden. So I would suspect there is more to this story than is being told.

Yet another example of the fact that the ONLY people still crying about racism are those with a vested interest in maintaining the ‘victimization’ society, the politics of racial hatred in order to gain for themselves.

The JJ clan is a criminal enterprise, and their ‘constituents’ are their victims.

I think JJjr had sold out to Indian businessmen (dot), but this being America circa 2012 you cannot mention race unless it is to brow beat the white devils. As for this development it is mainly surrounded by hispanics and some pretty hard core violent gangs, so don’t be suprised to see some “hispanic”-American pols to start making noise (of course about “white racism”)

Yeah, sure, the white devil is at it again... Since these liberals/democrats can’t seem to control their blatant racism, their hatred of anyone being successful outside of their racist slant, or their uncontrollable need to simply take from others... Let them have these liberal ‘sucess stories’ of Chicago, Detroit, etc. In fact, import all other like minded persons to endure, uh.. enjoy, the fruits of this isanity.

Something that's never discussed in "polite society" is the fact that unions are first and foremost, designed to limit who gets the jobs, and just like the guilds of long ago, they were designed to make sure that "the rabble" is kept out." BTW, how many of big union leaders are minorities? Or are they just a bunch of old, white guys? Or young white guys from the "right" families?

IOW, the gathering of nearly 200 racists.

I thought skin color didn’t matter, you were supposed to base decisions on merit and in the case of building houses, who can best build them

From the article, emphasis mine:Why do I just know that any project described that way is doomed to failure?

The best thing that could be done to fix Chicago would be 7 megatons on top of City Hall during a city council meeting (because you’d nail most of the real ‘Rats at one time). Filling in and rebuilding the crater would mean “jobs” for the people with any skills. Or, we could just leave as is and let the feral population have it.

Wait. They are crooks, con artists and political parasites. That’s about as true to Chicago values as you can get.

This is just like what’s happened in San Francisco since they tore down the Pat Brown double deck freeway to nowhere that ran along the Embarcadero. They built Pacbell Park for the Giants, tore down all the black housing and built upscale apartments now that there is a view of the bay.. Everything from the Bay Bridge to China Basin and Potrero Hill is being dozed and rebuilt and it has driven most of the blacks out of the city. When Willie Brown was mayor, he “arranged” to take over Treasure Island when the Navy left. Now all the former Navy housing there has become a black ghetto because Willie made sure that only blacks had the “opportunity” to move out there. It’s now a welfare community with a great view of the city.

Oh I didn’t think about that. Dang, tough break. But since this is all happening inside the Democrats’ own tent I can’t say that I feel really sorry for them. Petard hoisting and all that.

I don’t recall every seeing a major player in any union who was anything other than white and fat. My ex belonged to several union groups within the airline industry several years ago and, quite frankly, I don’t recall ever seeing any employees who weren’t white or male. Whenever there was an opening somebody’s brother or cousin was always found to be the most suitable employee.

Took my grandson to a baseball game in San Diego about five years ago. The entire two rows in front of us was filled with longshoremen, all white, fat and very loud. Reminded me of a bunch of thugs.

Those with skills left that part of town. And who can blame them?

...“planned urban development” (PUD)

Where I grew up 'PUD' meant somethin' else!
