When Messy Jackson isn’t radical enough.
A “protester” in Ferguson, MO, told Jesse “Messy” Jackson TO HIS FACE, “We don’t want you here. You not a leader. You not a leader. We don’t want you here brotha. Matter of fact, you not even a brotha. You can keep moving…and get those brothas out of jail. That’s what you can do!!”
Part of me wanted to do the “Snoopy Dance” after hearing this, because I absolutely despise the Quimbo, known as Messy Jackson, and his Sambo cohort, Al “Charlatan” Sharpton.
But the part of me that wants to dance and rejoice is tempered by the knowledge that the person who rebuked Messy, didn’t do it because they recognize that EVERYTHING Messy attempts to do is rooted and grounded in pure wickedness and foolishness. They rebuked Messy because they don’t feel that he is “radical enough”.
You see, when I look at the “protesters” in Ferguson, MO, I see Genesis 16:12. I see folks that personify the words, “He shall be a wild man; His hand shall be against every man, And every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.”
When I look at this video, I am reminded that God was right 4,000 years ago…and that this man was right 100 years ago.
“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” ~ THAT DUDE, Booker T. Washington (1856-1915)
