Jesse Jackson: Apartheid Remains in United States or Something

Posted by on Dec 08, 2013 at 2:26 pm

It’s so bad the apartheid leaders, led by Barack Obama, have locked his son up in prison.

Rev. Jesse Jackson said Sunday apartheid still exists in the United States as he reflected on Nelson Mandela’s effect on American politics.

“Apartheid remains. Apartheid gaps in poverty, healthcare and education. We’re in the middle of the end of the apartheid struggle now, but it’s just changed phases,” he said on NBC News’s “Meet the Press.”

“For almost 30 years, we had a lead jump on the right to vote and used that right to vote to empower allies in South Africa,” Jackson said.

Jackson is expected to attend the Dec. 15 funeral for the former South African president, who died late Thursday in Johannesburg at 95.

President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama are going to attend the national memorial service for Mandela on Tuesday in South Africa. Former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura have reportedly accepted an invitation to accompany the Obamas on Air Force One.

Former Pres. Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are also expected to attend memorial events.

Rev. Al Sharpton said on “Meet the Press” people are trying to “sugarcoat” the U.S.’s initial indifference to Mandela’s efforts and the African National Congress. Many communist countries embraced them, he said.

That’s because he was a communist.

    Jesse Jackson is the reason there are gaps in poverty, healthcare and education for black people in this country. Jesse Jackson sells victimhood to black people. He has supported policies that destroyed the black family and removed men from their homes, supported the NEA and opposed school choice, he has supported abortion that targets minorities, and the party that has been in power in most inner cities for 50+ years and has seen the black family disintegrate under their watch. He profits off of keeping black people believing that they can’t make it on their own. And to call himself a reverend is disgusting. He has declared himself the Moses of his people while leading them to their destruction. Sick!!
