Obama Does Act Like He's White

Someone should have told Barack Obama that it is better to be thought a wimpy accomodationist than to open your mouth and prove it. When asked two weeks ago about the Jena Six case, Obama could only say that the young people ". . . appear to have been railroaded into a very difficult situation." That was all Mr. Audacious had to say on the matter.

His mealy mouthed response is apparently what got Jesse Jackson's goat. Now that a supporter quite rightly called him out and a mass movement spawned by the case has reached its zenith, the great audacious one proved that he is anything but. "Outrage over an injustice like the Jena 6 isn't a matter of black and white,"

Earth to Obama. It is all about black and white and black people are expressing more outrage than white people are. If Obama can't stand up for black people when we most need to be supported, he is worthless to us.

Go get him Jesse and while you are at it, rethink your endorsement.
