The Rev. Dropping the N-Bomb on Fox News Interview - July 16, 2008, 08:25 PM

Fox: Jackson used N-word in off-air remarks.

CHICAGO - The Rev. Jesse Jackson used an emotionally charged racial slur during a break in a TV interview in which he criticized presidential candidate Barack Obama, Fox News confirmed Wednesday.

The longtime civil rights leader already came under fire this month for crude off-air comments he made against Obama in what he thought was a private conversation during a taping of a "Fox & Friends" news show. In those comments, he contended that Obama wasn't speaking to issues important to the black community and unaware that his microphone was still on, he said, "I want to cut his nuts off."


BRILLIANT!

Jesse Jackson is a complete and utter moron. I've got to believe everyone understands that by now.

Didn't Jackson and Sharpton hold a "funeral" for the N-word a few years back?

"The "nuts" comment came up when a fellow guest asked Jackson about speeches on morality Obama has given at black churches."

Oh the delicious irony.

Will he now lose his job because of racial comments?
I would guess not, the same rules don't apply!

These guys are such frauds - most black folks don't even buy their anymore.

I don't understand how they keep getting interviews.

Yeah, kinda sad. But the brother is the first American to bring hostages out of Iraq.

All I can say is, you want to end racism and nationlism, you gotta let comments just roll off and stop perpetuating things even more by making special rules for this kinda thing or things not considered pc.

I went camping the week of July 4th with 2 good friends who are black.
On the way back we stopped at Cracker Barrel to eat. The husband doesn't like it because he says they are racist and the food sucks but his wife likes it so we went.
The place was pretty crowded and I saw 2 other couples in our area be seated the same time as us (white).
Service sucked and we must have waited a good 45 minutes to get our food. The waitress came by several times to apologize.
I kept an eye on the other two couples because i knew my friends were going to have beef with the service.
Sure enough a few days later my wife (black) asked if they still felt the same way about the place and they said yes. They felt they got crappy service because they are black.
I told them I watched the other couples that were seated the same time as us and we all got our food at the same time, stop drawing that conclusion everytime you have something happen to you.

This stuff burns me up. If I felt it was racist I would have been the first crazy moter-f**r to be all over someone but it wasn't.

I have another friend who is white, wife black and I know for a fact in Frederick they were not served because of racism. The waitress flat out told him they were not getting served there. He has been fighting all his life, MMA, and would have loved to have taken some heads but his kids and mother were there. Now I know it happens but stop assuming everything is racist!

My point, sometimes black people keep things going and the use of the N word shouldn't be accepted by anyone especially black people. Black people shouldn't be using it as if it is cool if they don't want the word to continue!

No doubt. People will always think differently and sometimes be a little fuk'd up. But unless they are out on your yard with a burning cross or something, you're usually in control of your own experiences and can choose to not be a patron an establishment if you like. My wife, who was born and raised in San Francisco, would not eat at Cracker Barrel if she was starving to death because they will not employ homosexuals. I used to like their breakfasts, but she'll never go so I haven't been since we met. Sounds like that place has some serious problems.

In my ethnically-mixed dating history, I've observed what I would believe to be lesser quality service or lesser quality seating in restaurants at times, if it bothered me - I insisted on better seating or service...most of the time, it was not such a big deal. You've got to pick your battles.

I've certainly had the experience of being discriminated against - for being white (and possibly not 20-something). A 30 something Middle Eastern host, outdoor seating at a popular waterfront cafe, I requested a sidewalk table..."I'm sorry, that table is for 4, there are only 2 of you." (There were about 5 sidewalk tables available.) I said, eh...sure, okay..whatever....and agree to be buried next to the building by the service door. I'm halfway into my first cocktail...a 20-something middle-eastern couple walk in..Boom! Right to the sidewalk table. Nice. I've met one of the hands-on owners involved with this franchise on quite a few occasions where he's thanked me for assistance in a few matters. I'll just say, that I won't be so agreeable should this instance arise again.
