I was around (if you read it, it says I voted). I remember all of it. Jackson was not a close confidant of MInister Farrakhan. Farrakhan had offfered security to Jackson because of the many threats he received. He eventually had to distance himself from Farrakhan. Jackson did make disparaging remarks against Jewish people. However, he was not Anti-Jewish. We all say things we regret in our lives. That incident was used against Jackson unfairly. However, the real issue was Jackson’s outstanding and more progressive agenda. Thirty two years later, the Democrats still run away from real change in the lives of the masses and embrace corporate cash to the detriment of their many votes.
