Jesse Jackson has made a career out of complaining about race. Now, he is going a step further by complaining about race baiting.
During a recent interview, a television host asked him how he felt about being lumped in with race baiters such as Al Sharpton and Martin Luther King Jr. Jackson replied that he feels that he is more like MLK than Sharpton, but he added that anyone who calls them “race baiters” is racist themselves.
“You know Dr. King was accused of being a race baiter as he fought the forces of the south, as he fought the George Wallaces,” Jackson said, “they called him a communist at the same time.”
Jackson did not appear to be too happy about being lumped into the same category as Sharpton, who has been receiving the majority of attention in the race baiting community over the last few months. Perhaps Jackson is a bit jealous of his more popular counterpart…
Do you think the term “race baiter” is racist, or is this yet another example of PC ridiculousness? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
