By now you’ve all likely heard the Rev. Jesse Jackson’s hilarious and scathing comments about Sen. Barack Obama.? If not, they go a little something like this:
“Barack’s been talking down to black people … I want to cut his nuts off.”
Is it true?? Has Obama been talking down to black people?? I don’t know nor care; the second Hillary dropped out of the race, my attention dropped into my sneakers.
But Obama himself was not offended by the remarks, so why should anyone care at all?? If the target of the barb does not give a pigeon shit, no one else should either.
Therefore, Jackson’s apology is meaningless, just another penny in the well of our apology-obsessed culture, where apparently no one can say anything with even the slightest twinge of humor without getting cameras shoved in their faces and asked why they’re such demons.
And it’s funny.? Lighten up, people.
