The Delta Scoop is a nice place to vent. However it is in vain to think it might change the rapidly declining City. If this sounds a bit racist than so be it, but the majority of the population is not prepared to deal with reality. That being the case they will continue to vote with their heart rather than their brain. It is understandable that their hearts are filled with hate and now feel vengeance is what they want.
If you look at the Black leaders in this country and the Delta, they are masters of reminding “their own” how bad it used to be, and without them to lead it will get bad again. Nothing in our or our children’s lifetime will change this. Why is it that an immigrant from Vietnam or India or wherever, can come here without a penny and end up owning a business and have their children be first in their class?
It is because they work hard, learn the system, discipline their children, and don’t look for handouts or someone to look after them.
It is sad that the minority majority in Greenville is being lead to slaughter by the Pied Pipers in charge. And don’t dare be critical of those in charge or the decisions they make, Oh MY God! You are a racist! Never mind that they may be wrong or a little shady in their dealings.
And never ever tell them you think O.J. was guilty, they don’t care, they just care that they won that one. Yes, Whitey did some pretty bad stuff in the past, but so did the Romans, the Huns, the Zulu’s etc., etc.
So it is too bad they just can’t get over it!
And no, Reverend Jackson, we do NOT accept your apology! Your vulgar comment is the sort of talk we'd expect from a lynch mob, not a civil rights leader who does not seem to realize that the times have passed him by. Even his son and namesake, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., agrees that his dad is doing more harm these days than good. Pronouncing himself outraged and disappointed by his father's ugly words about Obama, Jackson Jr. issued a statement that, in effect, ordered dear old dad to "keep hope alive" and shut up.
Excellent advice to both Jesse and all other "spiritual leaders". If Obama loses this election, he will have only his own race to thank. Between the three black "racist reverends" and the white "priest" who appeared to be auditioning for a Las Vegas show, Barack would fair much better to declare himself an atheist!
It is unfortunate that black Americans have elevated these bible-thumping buffoons to the position of "political leaders" in that they only perpetuate the stereotypical image of black ignorance and gullibility. If Obama is elected, it will be in spite of these "spiritual leaders" who are fighting diligently NOT to have him share the spotlight!
