World Rule from Chicago, Illinois

Ex -congressman Jessi Jackson Junior  has agreed to return the Michael Jackson hat he bought with money given to him by supporters to help  his political campaign.  (This is from the Wall Street Journal of 2 21/13)

Note that the Chicago voters who re-elected him recently don’t care (including the dead voters, Chicago-style).

Ex-congressman Jackson is not related to the late performer Michael Jackson whose hat he had purchased illicitly. The hat is thus not a pious family memento but something to show off at cocktail parties.

Th ex-congressman however is related to – he is the son of –   extortionist-in-chief Jessie Jackson (Senior).

And this was another racist blast, of course, from a racist conservative, of course.

Did I say anything about another Chicago politician presently occupying an important position? No, I did not. It’s all in your mind.

 

About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.

    I’m struggling to control my non person-of-color tendency to tear down Black men just because they’re successful. I am embarrased to admit I did the same thing with OJ Simpson. I don’t think I can do this alone. I need someone to help me break the cycle of hate, it’s a real bitch. I want so badly to see the world the way others do. Is it too late for me to change or am I doomed to just not get it? Do you think Kind Leader Barack Obama will make a reeducation camp available to me as part of his health care plan?

  2. Bruce: Don’t despair. Soon, you will get free mental therapy under Obamcare (whether you want it or not.)
