Florida Gov. Rick Scott is asking civil rights leader Jesse Jackson to apologize for “reckless and divisive” comments following the jury verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial.

Jackson on Tuesday called Florida “the Selma of our time.” The remark follows Jackson saying Florida was an “Apartheid State,” after a jury earlier this month found Zimmerman not guilty on all charges in the shooting death of black teenager Trayvon Martin.

“Jesse Jackson owes every Floridian an apology for his reckless and divisive comments,” the Republican governor said in a statement. “It is unfortunate that he would come to Florida to insult Floridians and divide our state at a time when we are striving for unity and healing.”(continued)

Don't hold your breath, Rick. BTW, you're the one who caved to these race agitators in the first place and put Mr. Zimmerman in the position he's in, so your words mean squat.

Jackson will apologize when....

In the mean time - let him and other racists keep running their idiot mouths. It only serves to bolster our side.

Jesse Jackson is a professional race baiter and flim flam man. He's a fraud, a loser, a liar, and an individual without an ounce of integrity or honor.

He's a modern snake oil salesman, only worse because he deals in human misery, abject dependancy, and hatred.

It is a shame that so many black Americans have been drawn in by the excretement he is peddling.

Black and Latino Americans: For God's sake, WAKE UP!

Good luck with that. Blacks never need to admit when they are wrong. Those are the “rules”.

First mistake, talking about Jesse Jackson as if he had any relevancy.

If Scott had any real balls he would file a civil lawsuit against the Justice Brothers for incitement and defamation.

Hey Rick, if you really believe what you said then you can back it up by kicking those interlopers out of the Capitol and fumigating it.

Just remind everyone that Jesse needs a distraction because of his failures in his own home town.

He as much as invited them in when he decided to cave to their demands and asked the FL AG to assign a prosecutor to the “case.”

I'm not striving for unity and healing. The verdict was correct.
