Rev. Jesse Jackson said Sunday apartheid still exists in the United States as he reflected on Nelson Mandela’s effect on American politics.

“Apartheid remains. Apartheid gaps in poverty, healthcare and education. We’re in the middle of the end of the apartheid struggle now, but it’s just changed phases,” he said on NBC News’s “Meet the Press.” 

“For almost 30 years, we had a lead jump on the right to vote and used that right to vote to empower allies in South Africa,” Jackson said.

Kristi, I don't even know what my heritage is because I'm German, Dutch, Scotch, Irish, English and American Indian (Lakota Sioux and Iroquois) so therefore I just say that I'm Pure American and damn proud to be one. Now you add my kids to that mix: Besides being mine you have to add their mothers heritage (Japanese) to that mix. GOD BLESS THE US OF A AGAIN!

US COMBAT VETERAN: Vietnam, '68-'69; 228th Avn. Bn. (ASH), 1st Cav. Div (AM) and former Armored Cavalry Scout (19D30) and damned proud to have served and would do it again. (However, not under BHO and his Socialist Regime.)

May the Great Spirit watch over you and yours and guide yours and their steps through eternity.

I always answer a questioneir about are you white?by putting down.Native American Scottish,Irish American.I figure if blacks can be African americans I can be a Indian,Scottish Irish American.Oh and I have been with many of those (Nassan)Japanese Girls while I was in the best branch of the military the great USAF.And we did thank the US Marine Corp for being our helpers as well as the Army and Navy they also was our helpers.HA HA.

Charlie, my bride (43 yrs) isn't a Japanese American per say she was born and raise in Japan. I met her on R&R from 'Nam through my sister, my Flower was her pen pal for 6 years before I met and fell deeply in love with her.

Oh, thank you for your service, Bro. May the Great Spirit watch over you and yours and guide yours and their steps through eternity.

Jessie Jackson coined the phrase"African American"The blacks come from the Negroid the "black race" and was called "Negros" before Jackson was a glint in his poppas eyes.In Spanish "Negro" is the word for Black.Jackson thought that it would be a big deal if blacks were called African Americans instead of Negros.The blacks are not African Americans they are black americans Negros.

Really MOVE TO AFRICA ! people are not dying an starving with swelled belly's in the United States! I am so sick of hearing of the poor poor people. You can't help a PEOPLE that will NOT HELP THEMSELVES but expect everyone else to hand over their paychecks to them. That goes for all COLORS of LAZY ASS people get the HELL out move back to where your ancestors came from if you don't like it here this is not ENGLAND OR AFRICA! stop comparing them. We don't pull people off the street an cauterize them either. IF I were WHITE an lived in AFRICA I would MOVE! I would not live amongst heathens an why I live in a rural area our cities are full of FILTH that expect us to except them because they are FILTH an do not try to even help themselves. I have seen it I do not like it or condone it. You get so many chances after that I am done with you period. Even Jesus dusted his feet after so many tries some people are just plain Satan an a waste of time period. I believe in a HAND UP not a HAND OUT for LIFE.

how can you understand anything that flies out of his flannel mouth, he talks like he has a mouth full of manure.

Which one are you talking about? The idiot Jackson or the slime ball Sharpton.

US COMBAT VETERAN: Vietnam, '68-'69; 228th Avn. Bn. (ASH), 1st Cav. Div (AM) and former Armored Cavalry Scout (19D30) and damned proud to have served and would do it again. (However, not under BHO and his Socialist Regime.)

May the Great Spirit watch over all of us and guide our steps through eternity.

Both should get on their knees and read the Bible...

When no-ones watching as well.

IF APARTHEID WERE ALIVE IN THE UNITED STATES, JESSE JACKSON, YOU WOULD NOT BE ALIVE.  WHAT A LIAR YOU ARE JJ.  YOU LOVE ANYTHING YOU CAN SAY TO MAKE THE GULF WIDER BETWEEN THE RACES, YOU MAY HAVE YOUR SMALL FOLLOWING OF IDIOTS LIKE YOURSELF, BUT THE MAJORITY OF THE BLACKS IN THIS COUNTRY KNOW YOU ARE A LIAR!!!!  WHY DON'T YOU FIND A JOB?

Both the Reverend Al and the Reverend Jackson are poster boys for ignorance, bigotry, criminal activity, and race hustling!  I only use the term "Reverend" because it just accentuates their antithesis as a holy person!  Neither are relevant in today's society except the few ignorant hard corp racists like Obama!

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
