A Double Standard

A few of you may have heard of Don Imus and you may even know of the current so called controversy that is going on. While he probably should not have said what he did, it is hysterical that far left racist Jessie Jackson is out there whining that he needs to be fired. Does no one remember what this racist once said? Jesse Jackson referred to Jews as “Hymies” and to New York City as “Hymietown” in January 1984 during a conversation with a black Washington Post reporter.

He has no business complaining about Imus when he is even more guilty of being a racist.

If you belong to any minority or ethnic group you can say whatever you wish about “your” people & whites, but if you are white, you had better not slip & insult anyone or the Al Sharpton’s & Jessie Jackson’s will be after your head.

  1. If memory serves, there was just as big a to do about Jackson’s comments as there have been about Imus’s. Just like Imus, Jackson issued a public apology. He also asked that Jewish leaders help him overcome his biases. Guess we know where Mel Gibson got the idea. So, if you are looking for an example of minorities getting away with saying racist things while whites don’t, the Jesse Jackson “Hymietown” controversy isn’t the best one.
