Rev. Jesse Jackson on Corporations

Civil Rights Activist


Use corporate power to open doors to black businesses

Jesse certainly has paid his dues. No one has brought out more African-American votes for Democratic candidates at all levels. No one has stimulated more voter registration drives. No one has done more to show that political parties need to go where the anguish and injustices reign. He has logged hundreds of thousands of miles of effort. However, his self-restraint toward the manipulative elements of his party is now so extensive that it is affecting him. While he quietly moderated a few of the Clinton administration's calculating moves against principles, his counseling on the Lewinsky affair to the contrary, he no longer sees himself as a singular public force to push the party toward progressive actions. His son, Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Illinois), already has assumed a more assertive role in this respect. Jesse Sr. now also sees himself as using entrenched corporate power to open doors to African-American businesses.
