I thought he was staying out of the spotlight after he raised a few bastards?
2001-10-30 09:48:54 AM  
I'm calling for a nation-wide jesse jackson boycott.
2001-10-30 09:50:05 AM  
I second that Cloudmaster.
2001-10-30 09:51:34 AM  
Oh look ... someone else doing things for the children.

Happy Samhain everyone!
2001-10-30 09:52:43 AM  
Everyone wants to cancel everything and spend time with their families! If I have to spend one more minute with my stinkin' family I'll scream!
2001-10-30 09:54:10 AM  
I might dress up as Jesse Jackson this Halloween, that would be scary.
2001-10-30 09:57:38 AM  
God damn, will somebody hurry up and assassinate that farking attractive and successful African-American?
2001-10-30 09:59:14 AM  
and cancel christmas while you´re at it!
2001-10-30 09:59:42 AM  
If there's anything we can learn from the sept 11 attacks, it's to not follow the instructions of stupid religious fundamentalists. Go rape a chicken, jesse jackson.
2001-10-30 10:04:37 AM  
I think he's just ashamed of taking his love child Trick-or-Treating
2001-10-30 10:04:55 AM  
That's ironic, because I'm calling for the entire nation to murder Jesse Jackson.
2001-10-30 10:06:11 AM  
how about you shut the damn hell up jesse jack-son
2001-10-30 10:06:46 AM  
GEEWIZ, I'm in college as of right now so how am I supposed to be with my family?! Here's a question that I have- since when was Halloween not a farking family activity? When I was younger, both my parents took me out trick-or-treating! Enuff said, Jesse Jackson is a attractive and successful African-American. (Love that filter!)
2001-10-30 10:07:05 AM  
Which kid(s) would he take out on Halloween? I think that's why he's boycotting it, he's confused.
2001-10-30 10:07:49 AM  
Yes, Morrigan.... and Chemmie too.
2001-10-30 10:10:49 AM  
I admire the man's work, but this is just ridiculous.
2001-10-30 10:18:09 AM  

2001-10-30 10:18:36 AM  
Hear that giant sucking sound? It's Jackson's last gasp for attention before he fades into oblivion.

Please go back to what you do best...creating bastard children and extorting corporations
2001-10-30 10:19:58 AM  
Jesse Jackson:
Things to do today
1. Find a way to get my name in the paper
2. Locate and pork a ho
3. Find a way to get my name in the TV news
4. Poke a ho
5. Form a coalition-a
6. Investigate ways to get name in the paper tomorrow
7. Locate and poke a ho
8. Eat dinner
9. Watch news to see if I am on.
10. If not on the news, call station and scream racism
11. Get sum sleep, bro - you hadda busy day
2001-10-30 10:20:43 AM  
Now that everyone is already scared out of their mind about Halloween if the press reports that less people then last year bought candy or masks he will thank people for listing to him.

Oh and this is one black man that agrees with you Chemmie jessie jackson is a N*I*G*G*E*R.
2001-10-30 10:24:01 AM  
wow, Jesse is really contributing his part w/ great ideas on the war on terrorism
2001-10-30 10:26:26 AM  
Don't ya love Darryl Hammond's impression of Jesse?
Especially when he says "ratta tat tat"
2001-10-30 10:27:35 AM  
When does Jesse Jackson have the time to come up this crap?
I thought he was too busy banging his stable of ho's.
2001-10-30 10:27:48 AM  
Jesse NO!!!

what are you doing???
2001-10-30 10:28:03 AM  
Using the "N-Word" doesnt make you a racist EQAddict. Using the "N-Word" to describe an entire race does. I was describing one member of this race, a member that has lied, cheated and stolen for years and years under his liberal facade. And to me, what this man (if you can even call him that) has done is enough to earn the title of N*I*G*G*E*R.
2001-10-30 10:31:23 AM  
Isn't it a bit late to consider boycotting Halloween anyways..I mean really...this is a sore case of procrastination on his part...

"I think I'll wait till everyone has bought all the crap they need for halloween, gotten their costumes, and candy and parties all planned out...then I'll say they should boycott it...that'll work"

Obviously, this is not a good way of getting things done...

Sarin<<and attractive and intelligent white boy...hehe
2001-10-30 10:32:01 AM  
fark this asshole. A guy spreads his seed around like a lawn sprinkler, and I'm supposed to take his seriously?

Kids need halloween as an outlet to vent off some of those fears and anxiety.
2001-10-30 10:35:38 AM  
I have a question. What's a Nubian?
2001-10-30 10:38:13 AM  
Do your part to support the ecomomy... Go Trick or Treating.
2001-10-30 10:41:52 AM  
I am going trick or treating tomorrow. I got this fresh ass Winnie the Pooh costume. Taking the little brother in law out for some fun and getting a little candy for myself.

oh, and by the way.... FARK JESSE JACKSON!
2001-10-30 10:45:43 AM  
damn.. about 1/2 the time I'm glad JJ's around, causing trouble, etc. It's pretty much him and Larry Flynt whose entire jobs are just to make a ruckus..

but this is dumb.. and also the reason why he'll never manage to get an elected office..

2001-10-30 10:50:03 AM  
Can't blame the guy,his brain is about the size of a watermelon seed.
2001-10-30 10:54:33 AM  
Which family will he be spending time with?
2001-10-30 10:56:45 AM  
Geez, give the guy a break, how often have we heard from this guy, he's literally starving for attention.

Okay, that was *sarcasm*. Seriously, the guy needs to get a life. Maybe if we all ignore him, he'll disappear in a cloud of dust. Well, a gal can dream can't she?

Sethor and the rest: Happy Samhain to you too
2001-10-30 11:00:13 AM  
lol MistressCleo, nice little CA reference there
2001-10-30 11:09:31 AM  
Won't someone please think of the children. I"m serious. I remember when I was a kid I looked forward to halloween. Do these people who want to boycott it realize how crushed the kids will be when they can't get thier candy or dress up as their favorite superhero/monster or whatever.
2001-10-30 11:13:52 AM  
Yes, in case you were wondering, Chemmie is a Floridian...that's all the explaination you need.

*Isn't it amazing how he speaks so eloquent...out his ass.*
2001-10-30 11:14:33 AM  
"How can we wear a costume...
when there are still bodies to exhume?"

Come on, Jesse, we need some rhyming propaganda, or NO ONE will buy it!!
2001-10-30 11:21:54 AM  
Jesse Jackson...Bill Clinton's spirtual advisor. Who's Jesse Jackson's spiritual advisor? Jimmy Swaggert???
2001-10-30 11:26:14 AM  
I thought that the basic thing about being an American is not to see Color, Religion or Race.
I thought that we were the land of the free and the home of the brave.
I thought that we were all created equal.
Reading the comments some of you made, made me really sick.
SHAME on ALL of you who wrote OBSCENITY about African Americans.
I was brought up to treat them as my brothers.
The ones who really need to be assasinated are the N-Word users, those who have hatrate in their black hearts.
My only joy is knowing that these guys have to live with themselves forever, and deal with their filthy inside.
2001-10-30 11:28:02 AM  
Jesse Jackson can kiss my white ass... Oh, wait, no... never mind... he'd enjoy that too much.
2001-10-30 11:28:18 AM  
All i know is that I waited for halloween for months when I was a kid,because I knew that I could be with my dad and he would take me through any and all scary things that would come to us,it was the best feeling.Now,I am a father,I want to(hopefully) bring on the same feeling that my father let off for this halloween.Halloween is way more important than an ignorant wannabe politician could want to be.Jesse,go back to hell,we dont need you here.Since you can father children,as all of us know,why dont you take them out for a good time.They will actually have fun!!!Of course you probably wont even take care of them,much less recognize them.Wish it wasnt so hard to beleive in you now.
2001-10-30 11:40:15 AM  
Boycott Jesse Jackson. He's a hypocrite and a non-attractive and successful African-American. :)
2001-10-30 11:41:03 AM  
taking his young daughter trick or treating, he'd of course have to face the mother. we can't have that, now can we....

what a grinch!
2001-10-30 11:56:24 AM  
Jackson boycotts halloween, doo dah, doo dah.

i need a new job.
2001-10-30 11:57:07 AM  
And here I thought that Halloween would be a happy distraction from our problems. Nothing like a (worthless) public figure trying to make you feel guilty for going out and having a good time when we need it most.
2001-10-30 12:04:51 PM  
If he wants to protect children he should have Michael Jackson fitted with a chastity belt.
2001-10-30 12:08:07 PM  
Maskman, I too was raised not to see race. When I look at Jesse, his race is not the important thing to me. His utter lack of worth as a member of the human race is the important thing to me.

I was raised to consider everybody equal. When I look at Jesse, well, there I fail.
2001-10-30 12:09:51 PM  
"Jackson said he wasn't giving in to fear - but merely promoting "prudence" while seeking to protect children."
Since when has he cared about anyone but himself?
There are quite a few black AND white people that deserve the "n-word" moniker. Jesse just happens to be on the top of that list.
2001-10-30 12:13:01 PM  
A nubian is someone from nubistan.

filter test:
nubianrdly - 1 : grudgingly mean about spending or granting : BEGRUDGING 2 : provided in meanly limited supply
