The Truth About Jesse Jackson Comes OutJesse Jackson would be incensed if any of us used the "N-word," but according to the Associated Press, Fox News is now saying that Jackson used the most hated racial slur in American English with some level of impunity in the same conversation where the microphone was turned on and Big Jesse declared his intention to castrate Barack Obama:

studios, to stop using the N-Word. He also urged the public to boycott
purchasing DVD copies of the TV sitcom "Seinfeld" after co-star Michael Richards
was taped using the word during a rant at a Los Angeles comedy club in 2006.
Jesse wants to censor others, but he will not bide his own tongue. The truth about Jesse Jackson is finally coming to light after all these years for the world to see-the man is not a leader, he's just an uppity busybody.
