Just a reminder about how Jesse Jr. became wealthy in the first place. Back in the 80’s when Jesse Sr. was getting his extortion racket going, one of his first corporate victims was Coca Cola. They were accused of not having enough minority distributors, and as part of their shakedown deal they agreed to give distributorships to blacks. The very first of these was to give a big area of Chicago to none other than Jesse Jr.
