Jesse Jackson Rides Bus To Spotlight Violence

In the wake of the beating death of a black student (by other black students) in Illinois, the Revuum Jesse Jackson has taken to riding on one of the school buses there to highlight the violence that he calls a state of emergency.

“This is a state of emergency given patterns of violence and patterns of killing,” Jackson said in a news conference.

“This is ground zero of the urban policy,” Jackson said of Altgeld Gardens. “We need jobs, intervention for jobs, education, the safe passage of these children, and a sense of hope.” CBS2 Chicago

Stuck On Stupid

For those unfamiliar, the student who was recently murdered was Derrion Albert. Albert was caught in gang related violence outside a community center and was struck in the head with a board and then kicked while he lay dying.

Violence is a big problem in Illinois, particularly in Chicago. There are plenty of murders there, many with illegal firearms but some, like this one, with other weapons. The problem is societal and all the laws in the world (gun control or otherwise) will not stop the violence. The child who died was black and he was murdered by other black students. Black on black crime is a serious problem in many cities.

But blacks are not the only victims. Recently, a white kid was beaten by a group of black kids on a school bus. This too, took place in Illinois.

Interestingly, the beating was not labeled a racially motivated crime and Jesse Jackson did not ride that bus to ensure the white child’s safety.

Given that this is Jesse Jackson, I’m sure he rode the short bus.

    Not a one of these people who speak of racism and togetherness, and all that bright and shiny crap have EVER helped a white person.
    Not Jesse Jackson.
    Not Al Sharpton,
    Not Farrakan.
    Not Obama.
    Not Holder.
    I guess it is true. White people know and are expected to be able to take care of themselves.
    And if you disagree with me, you are racist.
