Here we have it folks! Jesse Jackson himself, self-appointed Lord of the Black Americans, apologized for his use of "the n-word" while simultaneously asking Barack Obama et al to focus on the "real issues" affecting black people. Significantly, his statement to focus attention on "real issues" implies that the use of the "n-word" (which we all know is "nigger" and not, say, "nifty") is not a "real issue" that confronts "African-Americans."
Jesse Jackson himself said it! We now have the equivalent of Black Papal Dispensation to use the word "nigger" all we want, whether we are black, white, Asian, Hispanic, Pacific Islander, Native American, or whatever mixture our DNA dictates. This is a great day for Civil Liberties! Finally, an American who truly knows the meaning of the first amendment. Reverend Jackson does truly understand that racial "slurs" are not a "real issue" confronting any Americans today. Nigger nigger nigger! Cracker cracker cracker! Gook gook gook! Not a real problem in terminology. Any problem with this? I refer you to our great Civil Rights leader, Jesse Jackson!
Why even I myself just yesterday used the term "cracker" to refer to a group of folks reported on by CNN. Thank you, Reverend Jackson, for your official permission to use whatever slogans, slurs, opinions or terms I want to refer to members of either my own heritage or that of others. I and our great country have finally come to realize that mere words are not the greatest social ills facing mankind, nor our country. Three cheers for a great patriot!
