WOW people here have no idea!
Does anyone here know why Jackson is concerned with the Supreme Court appointments??
Do you think it might have something to do with Stem Cell Research and the fact that he suffers from Sickle Cell trait that keeps him bedridden and was why he had to leave politics? And that scientests are claiming that stem cell research is one of the only ways to find a cure for his condition...do you think that his life might have something to do with that?
what does this have to do with race and slavery?
I can't speak for Sharpton's comments but attacking Jackson is so extreamly ridiculous! He has done more for this country and unity than any other politician currently serving in our gov't and by far more than anyone in this forum!!
