Stick a fork in Obama, he's done now,....
Wednesday, September 19, 2007
Jesse Jackson reportedly ripped presidential candidate Barack Obama for "acting like he's white," according to The State newspaper in South Carolina, but the civil rights leader says he doesn't recall making any such comment.
Jackson, who endorsed Obama for president in March, reportedly blasted the Illinois senator for failing to bring attention to the case of six black kids arrested on attempted murder charges in Jena, La.
He later told the newspaper that he did not remember making the remark, but State reporter Roddie Burris told FOX News that Jackson's "acting like he's white" comment came during a 45-minute, one-on-one interview Tuesday after an hour-long speech at Benedict College in Columbia, S.C. Burris said he stands by his report.

On Wednesday, Jackson didn't refute that he made the comment to Burris, but warned that any efforts to drive a wedge between him and Obama will fail.
The TrekMedic ponders,....
Hey, Jesse,...wasn't Imus "acting black" when he called the Rutgers girls "nappy-headed hos?"
Can't have it both ways, not even in Hymietown!
