How about an article penned by Jesse himself?
http://www.blacknews.com/pr/duke301.html
Divorced Mother Of Two, Working Way Through College, Allegedly Raped, Abused By Gang.” Had the headline read that way, the fury would have been great. The facts that the police didn’t arrest anyone, that the gang was not talking, that it took two days for the police to search the scene of the crime would have added to the anger.
Demanding anger, claiming racial bias.
Black women; white men. A stripper; and a team blowout. The wealthy white athletes – many from prep schools – of Duke; and the working class woman from historically black North Carolina Central. Race and class and sex. What happened? We don’t know for sure because the Duke players are maintaining a code of silence.
Nothing inflammatory there, eh?
The Duke scandal should lead colleges across the country to hold searching discussions about racial and sexual stereotypes, exposing the myths that entrap so many. But it shouldn’t take the brutalizing of a mother of two to raise these issues. Justice must be pursued at Duke.
Oh, as long as the justice meets Jesse's goals, eh?

How about this little turn of events?
The Rev. Jesse Jackson said Saturday his Rainbow/PUSH Coalition would pay the college tuition of a black woman who alleges white members of the Duke University lacrosse team raped her.
What's the problem? Just ask Al.
Al Sharpton told Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly on April 19 - the day after the first two players were charged - "There is a lot of racism that's in the air."
Where's the democratic leadership, cautioning against a rush to judgment? Where's the democratic leadership, demanding Jesse and Al apologize for creating a toxic environment? *Chirp chirp*

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
Dallas Cowboys: *sigh* / / Detroit Red Wings: Took injuries to see them, but how about them youngsters!
