Jesse Jackson Speaks About Florida Black-on-White Bus Beating

Rebel Pundit, Breitbart, August 11, 2013

Many are asking questions about the silence from civil right “leaders” such as Rev. Jesse Jackson and Rev. Al Sharpton about the recent beating of a white student by three black classmates on a Florida school bus, given their role in turning the Trayvon Martin case into a national civil rights controversy. I caught up with Rev. Jackson at Chicago’s annual Bud Billiken Back-to-School Parade on Saturday.

Here was Jackson’s full, unedited response:

Breitbart News: Rev. Jackson, can you comment on the recent beating that happened between three black kids that beat up the kid on a school bus? Does black leadership have a responsibility to say something about that kind of violence?

Jackson: People who care should speak to it. I was in Africa until yesterday, I heard about it. We are trying to make contact with the family of the kid because we should discourage people attacking people, whether it’s black, white, white, black, black, that people should stop attacking people. We must learn to live together respectfully in a civilized way. And it becomes white, black, black white, it just makes matters worse, it does not make matters better.

Breitbart News: The question is based on the Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman case. That case was brought into the national arena as a very racially divisive case, as a white on black crime.

Jackson: It’s hard to make a comparison, in one case a man was unarmed, killed by another man, last year a hundred and thirty five blacks were killed, black men, unarmed, killed by vigilantes, police, killed by security guards, so whether it’s the case of Oakland, California, or the case in New York, it’s just too much of it. Wherever it occurs, it must always be discouraged; there must be a deterrent from it occurring. We must urge people to live in civilized ways.

    This will be the first and last you hear from Je$$e Jack$son about the Florida bus beating.

    • Ngati Pakeha

      Might have been a different tune if the victim had pulled out an equalizer (Glock 17) and dispensed some payback. You would have another sideshow choreographed by Jackson & Sharpton Ltd.

      • Puggg

        Except the victim was in one of those “gun free zones,” so he wasn’t presumed to ever have one of those. The blacks who whacked him were sure armed: With their arms, their fists and their world-famous gang mentality.

  • You know, don’t you Jesse? At your age, you can’t help but knowing the truth.
    How disgusted are you every time you visit the motherland? The poverty, the Stone Age technology, and the empty factories are all the proof you need that your people will never be what my people are.
    Truthfully, Jesse. these black on white beatings are what I call, “having some sense literally knocked into you.” Each beating turns just a few more whites into nationalists.
    Keep up the good work.

      Je$$e is getting long in the tooth and will soon be joining Teddy Kennedy in hell. He knows that it’s only a matter of time before he, Al $harpton, Barack Obama, Sheila Jackson Lee and a cast of thousands are exposed for the grifters they’ve always been. He prays he’s dead before the mask comes off.

      (Hey, Je$$e, how’s junior doing?)

    “… last year a hundred and thirty five blacks were killed, black men, unarmed, killed by vigilantes, police, killed by security guards …” – Jesse Jackson

    So, Jesse, how many of these unarmed black men were in the process of crawling through a window at 3 AM, or breaking into a home to rape a homeowner, strangling someone, doing a knock-out king beat down or some other such black past times?

    Just wondering.

    • CoweringCoward

      Damn, if there were any justice those numbers would be MUCH MUCH higher. Many times the number stopped from their crimes must have gotten away with their misdeeds. That is the lesson to be taken from these numbers.

    • Whitetrashgang

      I will take all of them for 100 Alex.

  • White Mom in WDC

    I don’t care what Jesse Jackshyte has to say. Just another turd painted gold who won’t call a spade a spade

  • Rhialto

    I am a retired mind reader. Here is what the Rev. Jackson was thinking: Why should I give a rat’s rectum about a White boy getting beat up. I am Black, and I don’t care about non-Blacks.

  • CoweringCoward

    In that same period how many people were KILLED by black males?

    • Whitetrashgang

      Probably 10,000 or so but that isn’t important now is it.

  • Spartacus

    Dumb n****r .

    • din_do_nuffins

      What does it rhyme with?

      • IstvanIN

        The name of Roy Rodgers’ horse?

  • IstvanIN

    The real question is why don’t prominent white people talk about the epidemic of black on white crime? It really isn’t his issue.

    • ncpride

      I agree, however prominent, elitist Whites don’t consider it THEIR issue either since they are totally removed from the violence, physically and mentally, thus could care less about the White average Joe. We’re own our own to start making noise, and it HAS to start now.

  • So he thinks these beatings are fine, but when a victim shoots his attackers, it isn’t. Je$$e is simply confirming what one poster wrote here several weeks ago: blacks honestly believe whites have a “duty to die”.

    • Whitetrashgang

      Well no, more like blacks should never take responsibility for their actions, kind of like well OJ simpson anyone?

      • OJ Simpson eventually did have to take responsibility for armed robbery and kidnapping in Nevada, but I prefer the Trayvon Martin example. OJ doesn’t get out until 2017, by which time he’ll be 70. Trayvon will still be enjoying his dirtnap when he would be 70.

        • Luca

          But he got away with murder. he should be in the joint until he is carried out.

    • Irishgirl

      And did you notice this?

      Jackson: It’s hard to make a comparison, in one case a man was unarmed, killed by another man

      Um, “Reverend,” in the other case an unarmed CHILD was brutally attacked by THREE bigger boys. So, yeah, it’s hard to make a comparison!

  • Ngati Pakeha

    I love it when the good ‘Reverend’ takes positions like this. He slowly, but surely, erodes the goodwill of the libtards who in turn start to see the light. Keep on trucking Reverend!

  • ncpride

    People who care should speak to it.

    That’s a fabulous idea, however he knows that any White who wants to ‘speak’ to it would never be given the platform black hustlers like himself are given. We DO need to speak to it however, and start organizing ourselves into large enough numbers that the media or the country can’t ignore, and make our voices heard. No one else is going to do it for us, and we know that by now.

  • Evette Coutier

    Jesse old boy, if you don’t give a darn about whites being victimized, then why should we give a hoot about blacks?

  • Skip Wellington

    If only The Reverend Jackson had responded in
    rhyme, his answer would have been much more credible.

    • Libertarian67

      Made my eyes tear up I laughed so hard.

  • A Freespeechzone

    It’s NEVER about law and justice–with Jackson, Sharpton and others of that mindset, it’s pay back, retribution and punishment against Whites. Plain and simple.

    Furthermore, this group wants to insure that there will be no legal way to defend against unprovoked, violent and vicious attacks by blacks on Whites, which will embolden more attacks and deaths at the hands of blacks.

    Time to stop ‘dancing’ around the facts. No Apologies.

    • Erasmus

      Agreed. For those grifters race hustling has been very lucrative.

  • gsrider

    Africa? Did the reverend run out of American corporations to shake down?

    • Thor Bonham

      No,he wanted to visit Obama’s birth place ..

  • ViktorNN

    I don’t expect Jackson to care about how blacks commit more crimes against whites than whites commit against blacks.

    However, I do wonder why white people don’t care – especially our so-called “leaders.”

    • Sick of it

      Our “leaders” work for the other side.

    • Thor Bonham

      I didn’t even know whites HAD leaders .. Can you name just one for me ? I would appreciate it.. Thanks ..

  • HJ11

    I don’t care what that phony creep things about anything. He’s Black and doesn’t exist in my world. He might as well be running around the jungle in Africa.

    • Whitetrashgang

      If only, this is something we can all get behind. Could make it into a reality show. Look a jesse he just ran out of jerry curl in the swamp, how will he outsmart the crocodiles now?

  • Germanacus

    So the good Rev is keeping a careful count of how many blacks are killed (overwhelmingly justifiable no doubt) by white citizens, police, and security gaurds, but completely ignores the much larger number of white victims at the hands of blacks.

    Typical of the $hakedown artist. He plays white altruism like a fine fiddle.

    • Nick A Siggers

      35 over 100 years????
      Blax murder around 250 MORE Whites and Hispanics each year, than the reverse.

    • Erasmus

      Much easier to remember the blacks killed by whites than whites killed by blacks or blacks killed by other blacks. The first is a very short list.

      Negrolocaust…I love it!

      • Irishgirl

        However foolish he might have been, he looks like he was a nice kid. Sad.

  • negrolocaust

  • Jim Henry

    Why does the media keep giving this guy press coverage? WTF does he do besides stirring the poop?

    I have Jackson Fatigue.

  • shmo123

    Jesse Jackson is living proof that a black man can achieve anything because of the color of his skin, and “content of character” plays no role whatsoever.

  • capnmorgan5150

    More lip service from America’s favorite race pimp.

    Where is that world and can I move there?
