Jackson: Black Voters Deserve A Return On Election ‘Investment’

ReconMarine~PWCM*AVA*BTTB*JLA* 2012/11/12 21:45:28
Despite attempts at voter suppression in states such as Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida, Jackson said, blacks turned out en masse to vote, enduring waits that stretched into hours in many places. “We waited, we voted, we believed,” Jackson said. “Now we want to get well.

Rev. Jackson, who spoke longer, louder, and more forcefully than he has in some time at the Saturday morning Rainbow/PUSH meeting, asked the crowd, “What do we want? We want, we want, we want, we deserve, we deserve … a return on our investment.

“What’s good for us is good for everybody. What’s good for blacks is good for everybody.,” he said. “We bled too much, we died too young, we cried too much, we prayed too long, now we want a return on our investment.”

Referring to those voter suppression efforts, he said, “these acts of meanness had unintended consequences.” Rather than keeping blacks and Latinos away from the polls, voter ID measures and the curtailing of access to the voting booths made people more determined to vote. “Suppression became stimulation and people fought back,” he said.

“We fought back,” and the battle was won, but the war still remains, he said. “If we vote and don’t bargain we get nothing. A Jacuzzi filled with stagnant water will not get you well,” Jackson said. “You have to stir the water.”

    More divisiveness from a Black racist. It's going to be interesting when he goes before St. Peter and finds that just putting a "reverend" before his name doesn't get him into heaven.

    This said by the father of the yet to be indicted co-conspirator of misuse of campaign funds, who himself, a so called “Pastor”, has an out of wedlock child (that we know of) one of two infamous race baiters, who smeared the blood of an honorable MLK on himself to be a “hero” to “his people” trusted by no one, black or white, and just another Chi-town hustler, from Crook County.

    So what this race baiter is saying is that the other 88% of Americans have a right to expect a big pay off too?

    BINGO.....AMEN....
    That is ALL he Is....
    I still remember the Day MLK was Killed and I also Remember Who was By his side and Who
    knelt down beside the Body of MLK and stuffed something into his (JJ's) Pocket out of site of others....But caught by the Media, until the Media stopped showing the one scene....
    Gun Perhaps....Who else stood to benefit form MLK's death....???
    Why did Coretta King avoid JJ ever since that day...????

    I watched his niece evolve as a "faith based" person who is quite true to her uncle's "dream" unlike the batch of spoiled gene pool refugee's in the NAACP arm of the Communist Party US. Wouldn't Frank Marshall Davis be proud of his destruction of our country to day, helping it bound toward the Commies who hated blacks?
