Jesse Jackson Says About Obama “I Want To Cut His Nuts Off”

Oops! Was My Microphone On?

The Rev. Jesse Jackson apologized Wednesday for saying Barack Obama is “talking down to black people” during what Jackson thought was a private conversation before a FOX News interview Sunday.

Jackson was speaking to a guest at the time about Obama’s speeches in black churches and his support for faith-based charities. Jackson added before going live, “I want to cut his nuts off.”

His microphone picked up the remarks…

    Keep trying to dodge and HIDE from Bajan issues.

    Coward!

  2. reality check

    body slam has had one too many body slams

    the grey matter is not working too well

    at least half of the issues on BFP are Barbados related and the rest of general interest

    I would love to know more of the dynamics between Obama and Jesse Jackson.

    Is Jesse just jealous that Obama is where he would like to have been or is there
    some mortar in the pestle?

    Keep it coming BFP

    Poor BodySlam.
    he thinks Barbados is the entire world.
    – needs to travel more!

  6. xenophobe chick

    Bet this is the first time Mia Mottley and “cutting nuts off” have appeared on the same page.

  7. The important thing is that Jesse apologized and this should help to put the matter to rest.

    There is a certain prominent Barbadian who made some dreadful statements, but who has never apologized. This is callous behaviour.

    I urge this person to follow Jesse Jackson’s lead, and to issue an apology. Both the offending words and my demand for an apology can be seen by going to my blog.

    “The important thing is that Jesse apologized and this should help to put the matter to rest”.
    Damage already done keltruth, this is not primary school. JJ should have known better, but then again………?

    A) No one in their right mind should ever trust that ultra right wing FOX News. I would not be at all surprised it FOX hadn’t set JJ up to catch some off the record remarks.
    B) Jesses Jackson is displaying sour grapes. He had his day and his opportunity to become the first American Black President and he blew it. Jealousy is a B****.

  10. armchair critic

    The sad thing is that it seems that the persons who are doing damage to Obama’s campaign are his fellow African-Americans i.e. Rev. Wright and now Jackson.

    The crabs in a barrel mentality that continues raise in ugly head….

  11. If Obama wins the election, Jackson’s power will be diminished. Obama will be the leader, sidelining Jackson. If Obama loses, nothing changes for Jackson.

    I don’t get it.
    – WHAT is the problem??

    A black man comments that another black man is talking down to their own kind.

    I reckon B.O.(eeuuw..what initials!!) owes J.J. $100,000 for the perceptive analysis,
    so BO can get on with the job, correct his errant ways and STOP talking down to his own colour

    Big DEAL!

  13. “Cut his nuts off? ”

    How does he even get to that idea? That seems so out of left field.

    I was in Detroit in the early 1980’s when Jesse used to shake down companies for money. He was pressuring them to do more advertising on black radio stations etc. But the money went into his pocket through Operation Push ( his organistion) to buy thousand dollar suits. I saw him at a cocktail party there and he’s full of himself. ” Keep hope alive!”, was Jessy’s punch-line.I’m doing that for Obama.
