Skip to comments.Politico: Blacks Fear a White Person Will Win Seat Formerly Held by Jesse Jackson Jr.

This is really too easy. Imagine the hue and cry in the press and elsewhere, which to be clear would be quite appropriate, if an accurate story about a special congressional election to replace a white congressperson began as follows: "White leaders are growing increasingly worried that a black candidate might seize the seat of former Rep. ____ in the upcoming special election."
Well, a story by Alex Isenstadt at Politico with a truth-obscuring headline ("Blacks fret free-for-all for Jesse Jackson Jr. seat"; the headline should be "Blacks fear a white person will win 'their' seat") clearly shows that Chicagoland's black establishment thinks it has first dibs on IL-02, and apparently believes that "Jackson's seat" (as if he ever owned it) can't be appropriately represented by a white person, even though the early frontrunner is clearly liberal on most issues.
Black leaders are growing increasingly worried that a white candidate might seize the seat of former Democratic Rep. Jesse Jackson in the upcoming Illinois special election.
With a host of black candidates announcing their intention to seek the seat, the concern is that they could split the African-American vote and provide a plurality to a white contender. The worries escalated this week after former Rep. Debbie Halvorson, a white Democrat and veteran of suburban Chicago politics, threw her hat into the ring.
Losing Jacksons seat would be a blow to the black establishment. Chicago, long a center of black cultural and political power its the home of the nations first black president, Barack Obama, and the first black member of Congress, Oscar De Priest * - would see its delegation in the Congressional Black Caucus diminish from three seats to two. And theres Jackson background as the son of iconic civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson.
Jacksons district, which he was elected to in 1995, contains a small majority of black voters.
... The battle we have is that we cant afford to lose a black voice in Congress, she (Delmarrie Cobb, a longtime Democratic political consultant in Chicago who formerly worked for Jackson Jr.) added. It would be a terrible loss in many ways.
Time for the GOP to put up a black man as a candidate.
The elephant in the room that the news media won’t acknowledge, black racism of the vilest sort.
“In Jackson Jr. Story, Politico’s Isenstadt ‘Forgets’ There Were Five Black Congressmen Before Chicagoan Oscar De Priest”
Meanwhile, whites go around in fear of being the target of a new ethnic relations game called Beat the Crap Out Of Whitey For The Hell Of IT
Isn’t post-racial America wonderful?
I didn’t realize those seats are “hereditary” now.
There were more than five black Congressmen before DePriest—those listed are all post-Reconstruction. There were a bunch of black Republicans in Congress in the Reconstruction era (maybe 16 in all, don’t remember the exact number) including a couple of Senators (one of them holding the seat previously occupied by Jefferson Davis).
I live in Alabama, the state that is usually stereotyped as being most racist, and I never hear a racist remark by anyone. I haven’t in years. But every day I see racists remarks in the news in mostly in liberal newscasts or newspapers. Do they not realize that by calling someone racist, they are committing a racist act themselves? The most racist things I hear come from race baiters like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, but all the mainstream news media is guilty of playing the race card to drum up conversation and news. If they would just shut up about race and let people live, we might someday have a civil society.
And a WHITE person could put their freebies and handouts in jeopardy. Quick! Somebody find a “black” person! Anybody! We don’t care who it is as long as their skin is “black”!
Hint: They do it on purpose. It won’t end until we start playing the same game, i.e., calling them racist because they ARE.
But, but, but that’s racist isn’t it? Or is it possible for black folks to be racist?
Well assuming that's who he is, and that's his real name...which is speculative.
Both moslems and RATs have no honor, they lie about everything.
