With the recent controversy surrounding Rev. Jesse Jackson's comments about Sen. Barrack Obama, Jackson has been bombarded with critisism. Even from his own son Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. blasted his father for his comments. One celebrity seems to be starting the blast Jesse campaign, rap legend NAS has told MTV that the civil rights leader is finished.
"I think Jesse Jackson, he's the biggest player hater," Nas said.
"His time is up. All you old ..., time is up. We heard your voice, we saw your marching, we heard your sermons. We don't wanna hear that ... no more. It's a new day. It's a new voice. I'm here now. We don't need Jesse; I'm here. I got this. We got Barack, we got David Banners and Young Jeezys. We're the voice now. It's no more Jesse. Sorry. Goodbye. You ain't helping nobody in the 'hood. That's the bottom line. Goodbye, Jesse. Bye!"
Jesse Jackson was never a real leader. He's a wannabe Martin Luther King. Where MLK was a great philosopher, leader, political genius. Jesse Jackson's like the dumb stupid partially retarded brother of Martin Luther King. Now that the younger black generation have someone like Obama who closely emulates great black leaders such as Malcolm X and MLK in his speeches, has that bravado and rapport with his audience like MLK and X. Come November we might be looking at change in this country. This could be a time that will be remembered forever, Obama could become a legend. We'll just have to wait and see what happens in November.
