How are the two even related, Reverend? Jesse Jackson: 'You can't vote against healthcare and call yourself a black man' - TheHill.com

When are people going to see this guy for the charlatan that he is? Rev. Jackson doesn't care about true reform, or civil rights at this point he has just become a party guy that’s looking out for his friends and his personal interests. From The Hill:

The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Wednesday night criticized Rep. Artur Davis (D-Ala.) for voting against the Democrats’ signature healthcare bill....“We even have blacks voting against the healthcare bill,” Jackson said at a reception Wednesday night. “You can’t vote against healthcare and call yourself a black man.”...The remark stirred a murmur at the reception, held by the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Foundation as part of a series of events revolving around the 25th anniversary of Jackson’s run for president. Several CBC members were in attendance, including Chairwoman Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), who’d introduced Jackson. ...Davis, who is running for governor, is the only black member of Congress from Alabama.
