"What has he sacrificed for his beliefs? Us. We've been sacrificed."

This is actually an amazing story. Jesse Jackson got booed by a bunch of protestors at a Rainbow Coalition rally. Its not as if these protestors are conservative or anything, but it is a good sign that black folks are openly questioning and criticizing the leadership and motives of these self-appointed Black leaders. Think about it. blacks have been promised so much by the likes of Jackson and Sharpton for so long and what have they gotten for it? Relatively little. Furthermore, if this type of thing occurs more regularly, it may open the door for conservatives to be able to offer their vision of fixing these problems. Like they say, the best welfare program is a job. Conservative ideas for producing the growth that leads to jobs is what the doctor ordered. It now seems that there may be some ears opening to these ideas. It has been a long time in coming and will take a long time, but if the liberal monopoly over the black vote is busted, it may spell the end to many of the racial divisions in our country, which is a good thing.
