Am I the only one here who seems to feel that Jesse Jackson is a zit on the face of America? He seems to show up when you least want him to and you can’t pick at him or you might get scarred. He meddled with the battle in Kosovo when asked to stay away, and he’s currently staging protests in Illinois over black kids who were expelled from school. The thing I don’t get here is that the kids violated school policy by fighting at a football game, yet they shouldn’t be kicked out of school because they are black. Three schools have been canceled due to these protests, and apparently won’t open until this issue is resolved. Jesse Jackson won’t leave until the kids are put back in school. So my question here is, Why does Jesse Jackson think he’s doing everyone a favor by leading these protests, when he could be helping everyone else out by leaving the situation alone? Am I getting this issue all wrong or is this more about Jesse wanting attention rather than dealing with a real issue?
