Some facts about Je$$e Jack$on

Jackson is not new to white-hating or race-baiting. His first openly form of
protest against whites occurred back in the 1960s. The magazine "Life" had
an interview with Jackson, who told about his actions when he was younger:

“Once [Jackson] told of his days as a waiter at the Jack Tar Hotel in his
hometown of Greenville, S.C. Just before leaving the kitchen, he would
spit in the food of white patrons he hated and then smilingly serve it to
them. He did this, he said, `because it gave me psychological gratification.'”

Jackson has always blamed “racism” for all his problems. For instance, he

claimed that he quit attending the University of Illinois in 1960 because the

school discriminated against blacks in sports. The now-defunct magazine

Quest/79 had an interview with Jackson in which Jackson told his interviewer

what allegedly happened at the University of Illinois:

“But at Illinois, [Jackson] quickly learned what Big Ten life was like for

aspiring black quarterbacks in the fall of 1959. He was advised to become

a receiver or a running back; blacks weren't wanted for positions of leadership

on the gridiron. The next year, Jackson enrolled at North Carolina Agricultural

and Technical State University, a predominantly black school, where he passed

for [sic] touchdowns. . . .”

That appears to be a blatant falsehood. In 1960, the University of Illinois's
quarterback was black. The book Profiles of Deception maintains that Jackson
left the University of Illinois because he did not have a choice. He was
allegedly caught in the act of plagiarism.
