Race hustler industry tries to cash in on Duck Dynasty

You just knew it was coming, although we always want to believe it will just go away. What am I talking about? The race hustler industry.

The latest iteration of the movie, “Return of the Poverty Pimps” has Jesse Jackson inserting himself into the Phil Robertson “Duck Dynasty” episode.

According to a report from Fox Nation, “Reverend Jesse Jackson has weighed in on the controversy surrounding Duck Dynasty, comparing Phil Robertson to the driver who had ordered Rosa Parks to sit in the back of the bus.” Say what?

Jackson said:

These statements uttered by Robertson are more offensive than the bus driver in Montgomery, Alabama, more than 59 years ago. At least the bus driver, who ordered Rosa Parks to surrender her seat to a white person, was following state law. Robertson’s statements were uttered freely and openly without cover of the law, within a context of what he seemed to believe was “white privilege.”

Jackson demanded to meet within 72 hours with A&E executives and Cracker Barrel’s CEO to discuss the future of Duck Dynasty memorabilia.

Who the heck is Jackson to demand a meeting with A&E Executives and CEO of Cracker Barrel? Is this meeting in keeping with his long-standing practice of corporate extortion and threat to boycott these businesses unless they kowtow to his financial extortion?

If we actually had an Attorney General with integrity, he would issue some type of injunction against Jackson having any influence in this matter, knowing the modus operandi of the Rainbow Coalition, as well as Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.

And for Jackson to invoke the memories of Rosa Parks is a blatant attempt at race-baiting and stoking the fires of racial tension. I wonder if Jackson has asked for a meeting with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel? Has Jackson called for a meeting with the National Educators Association to discuss failing inner city schools and teachers?

Here we go again with this modern day version of black bloodsucking vampires who are draining the life out of the black community for their own “privilege” and relevancy. They said nothing when the “knockout game” was in its early stages. Theses cretins only show up when there is financial gain for themselves. And I don’t care who calls me Uncle Tom, Oreo, sellout or white man’s porch monkey, I will call out wrong when I see it. And if someone possesses the same skin color as I do and falls in line with this criminal behavior, the heck with you.

Let me remind you of the words of Booker T. Washington (who I revere): “There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well.”

Washington promoted education, entrepreneurship, and self-reliance completely in opposition to the race baiting ways of someone like Jesse Jackson. I can certainly believe Booker T. Washington would speak out against Jackson and Sharpton. And yep, they called Booker T. those ugly names they call black conservatives, such as myself today, way back then.

My message to Jesse Jackson: stand down and step aside, we are sick of your bigoted tactics. And I for one will keep “getting my grub on” at Cracker Barrel.

Whose side are you taking, Phil Robertson or Jesse Jackson? And I admonish the executives at A&E and Cracker Barrel to tell Jesse Jackson to join Mikey Weinstein and pound sand.


  1. If you have no tolerance for racism, then why did you post the above story? Jessie Jackson is as racist as one can get! One would have to be completely out of touch with reality to not know that!

    • So that we the people would know. Media likes to twist things to their advantage. Mr West is doing his best to deliver it in layman’s terms for us. Where was Jesse Jackson whilst the knock out game was exploding everywhere? Who wants to live in a world where only one side of the road is shown and the other ignored. Our Founding Fathers warned us to be educated, in the sense of knowing whats going on. Not complacent and fed ‘news’. That’s what makes us think less and in the process weak. It also gives the government more control over us….exactly what the Founding Fathers feared. Government is meant to be limited.

  2. Hmmm….I always thought racism was based on hatred of a race? Didn’t realize a behavior was in that definition too…..LMMFAO!!!!! Libtards really ARE that STUPID!!!!!

  3. Look how tired Rev. Jackson looks. It must be exhausting doing this work. There are so many people who cannot understand why the media ( like me, I am one of them ) bothers to cover this person.

    Trading Places with Phil Robertson
    December 21, 2013 at 9:23am
    I grew up outside of Syracuse, NY. There were five families on my street, including mine, with kids about the same age. One family was bi-racial, and the others were white. I don’t recall the bi-racial boy being excluded, in fact, I remember him being included. I don’t remember him being unhappy, in fact, I remember him being well adjusted. There were a couple Black kids in school, but I don’t remember any Asians. I also don’t remember any racism in school, but there was plenty on TV (All in the Family), and my dad was a bigot as well.

    From that paragraph, what questions can you answer? Did you live in a neighborhood of only Caucasians? Were you/your friends racist? Did you witness racism at school/on television/in your home? Was the bi-racial boy on your street included/happy?

    Can you answer these questions from the same paragraph? Was there slavery in America? Were all American slaves mistreated? Were some American slaves happy? Did Blacks/African Americans/Negros endure inequality in America during the Post Civil War era? Were some treated well? Were all unhappy? Did desegregation change how they fared in society? Did discrimination endure in the Post Segregation era? NO, you really can’t.

    I’m very much aware of how incongruent the phrase “All men are created equal.” seems against the backdrop of slavery, and acknowledge America began its course correction following the Civil War. I acknowledge the hatred of the KKK, and less dramatic demonstrations by mainstream American that endured another 100 years before another course correction following desegregation. I know racism has not vanished, but believe it is far less prevalent than the media and President would like us to believe. I believe many Caucasian Americans have Asian, Black, Hispanic, and Native American friends just as I do. I’m not racist because I’m recounting the ethnic diversity of my friends for the purpose of discussion. If you believe differently, UNFRIEND ME NOW! So here’s what I think the answers to the questions are:

    1. Was there slavery in America? YES
    2. Were all American slaves mistreated? NO
    3. Were some American slaves happy? YES
    4. Did Blacks/African Americans/Negros endure inequality in America during the Post Civil War era? YES
    5. Were some treated well? YES
    6. Were all unhappy? NO
    7. Did desegregation change how they fared in society? YES
    8. Did discrimination endure in the Post Segregation era? YES

    You can agree/disagree, and we can discuss maturely/rationally, and perhaps one of us will be swayed to the other’s point of view. Equally plausible is that we’ll agree to disagree. It really doesn’t matter, as long as one of us isn’t labeled racist by the other because we have an opinion on whether or not there were happy slaves, or happy Black Americans in the Post Civil War/Segregation eras. Enter Phil Robertson, interviewed by Drew Magary of GQ, and the following quote: “I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field….They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!… Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”

    What question was Phil answering? I doubt it was #1, #2, #3, #4, or #7. It certainly wasn’t, “Are you racist?” to which I suspect he would have replied, “No.” When I read this quote, I was reminded of how I might answer a question about “race” in my childhood, which I revealed in my first paragraph. “I grew up outside of Syracuse, NY. There were five families on my street, including mine, with kids about the same age. One family was bi-racial, and the others were white. I don’t recall the bi-racial boy being excluded, in fact, I remember him being included. I don’t remember him being unhappy, in fact, I remember him being well adjusted. There were a couple black kids in school, but I don’t remember any Asians. I also don’t remember any racism in school, but there was plenty on TV (All in the Family), and my dad was a bigot as well.”

    So Phil’s memory of his childhood is one of living on a farm and working next to generally happy Black Americans because they were of the same “class” which was “lower class” and neither skin color blamed the other for their “class.” Maybe I’m just naïve, but that doesn’t seem to be screaming “racist” to me, or even whispering it for that matter. Phil was undoubtedly a redneck growing up in Louisiana (a derogatory slang term used in reference to poor, uneducated white farmers, especially from the Southern United States). It is similar in meaning to “cracker” (prevalent in GA/FL and used by Treyvon Martin to describe George Zimmerman), “hillbilly” (prevalent in Appalachia), and “white trash” (without the suggestion of immorality). He may live like one now…minus the poor part. White, poor, rich, bearded, back woods, plain spoken, and Christian doesn’t equal racist in my book. With 500 media requests/day, its unlikely I’d get the chance to ask Phil, even if I was one of the thousands of requests received, but I won’t be sending a request. There are enough snippets from Phil laced throughout the article to get some context for who he is as a man…and that’s perhaps the crux of the problem. Not who he is as a man, but that the majority of America has been exposed to snippets of snippets, so their opinion is formed on the equivalent of a 160 character text message. Shameful really, but understandable, because we’re too often about immediate satisfaction in today’s culture…and so is the press, which is almost completely devoid of investigative reporting…because it takes time, which has apparently become too precious to spend.

    Against that backdrop, it’s safe for me to imagine Phil as a pretty good guy, and certainly not the villain some have cast him to be. I’d draw the same conclusion if I wrote a similar essay about Phil’s biblical beliefs, and perhaps I will, but not today.

    Merry Christmas

  5. I have been waiting for you to say something about this… I read it early this morning, though I realize you are probably on vacation and with your family, but this man is impossible…. He calls himself a Christian but not only a Christian but a teacher, a reverend of our Lord but ignores the fact that what Phil quoted was from the very teachings he is supposed to protect and honour. He is nothing more than a hypocrite and he and Sharpton need to be further exposed for what they are… race baiting hypocrites….

  6. Mr , Give me a dollar so I can holler NO Reverend Jackson ! Why don’t you take the Reverend out of your name ? After all it in reverence to God and Him being Holy, Ps 111:9. Here is a idea Mr Jackson, Why don’t you quit sowing discord and strife and clean up the trash in your own back yard !

    • When his sorry asz was running (Briefly) for president, he did not use that reverend title. He was just Jesse Jackson. He is just like the Christian hating Jewish Rabbi; alway begging for Israel’s poor and keeping all the money for himself. A POS of the first order!!

  7. MLK, Jr. would be, I believe, the first to smack “Reverend” Jackson upside the head and tell him to straighten up. I’m actually surprised it took Jackson this long to insert himself into this issue. He’s never one to let a controversy go without tossing the race card in. He must’ve been sleeping when all this originally went down….

  8. Col. I truly wish you would run for President and pick Judge Pirro as a running mate. We need a team we can get excited about,

    By the way I am good with West – Pirro or Pirro – West

    We have plenty of politicians. We need statesmen patriots.

    As for Jackson and the rest of them. My opinion they are “stone cold” racist. That have made a lot of money off it.

    For most Jackson is a no body. He is a suit with a mouth, and a old one at that.

    I have a great regard and respect for clergy. These people using the title of reverend to peddle their “snake oil” and hate is more than pitiful.

    Sir thanks for standing up.

    Steve Trubilla
    Sgt Maj USMC (ret.)

      • No doubt Dr. Carson would be a great choice. But I have to tell you it is past time for a women in the White house.

        I do not stand on ethnicity as a qualifier or a disqualified. But it can bring a great deal to the fight.

        We live in a much more diverse country now. Judge Pirro brings that dimension and depth to a ticket.

        She is a strong, competent, and intelligent American woman.

        All 3 of these people in my opinion are top shelf.

        I am hearing talk about Gov. Chris Christie being groomed for this. There is no way I could support him.

      • This discussion needs to go viral. I, like so many others, are sick to death about skin color and gender controlling the discourse. It is not a white thing or a woman thing, etc. It is a competence and ethics thing. People in this country need to stop accepting and cowering when the “race card is played”. I am an American, proud of my heritage, but I do not need a hyphen in my name to define me. Those that came before me started that story. It is to me to live up to it. http://www.paperbullets.us follow at http://www.twitter.com/stevetrubilla

  9. “corporate extortion and threat to boycott these businesses unless they kowtow to his financial extortion”
    That is exactly what this is. This is what Jessie does now and always has done…..It can’t be long before the other race baiting stooge ,Al Sharpton, gets in on the action.

  10. Really Mr. Jackson, Phil was talking about his personal experiences with blacks back in the day,were you there, can you call him a liar,no you can’t so because he mentioned blacks you call him racist. You have no standing in the black community unless you keep throwing that Race Card out there and because its been used so much lately it is becoming full of holes and falling apart…..Better start looking for a new gig.

  11. MR. Jesse Jackson , the words coming out of your mouth , knowing the world knows how your son turned out it is best to keep your mouth shut.

  12. You, Sir, are nobody’s sucker. I admire your ethic, try to live by the example you follow and set, and am attempting to pass it to my kids.

    And – for the record – if you should find yourself in a Cracker Barrel in my area, I’d be pleased to stand behind you in line and pick up the tab.

  13. It will take the black community to shut Jackson and Al up, I remember as a kid growing up and see JFK killed and Martian Luther King killed, I was in a all white school when blacks were integrated in our school, MLK was a good man who wanted people of all colors to live together and be treated equal, I never remember him teaching hate. Jessie was with Mr King at that time and when MLK was killed Jessie decided to keep up the march, only he became greedy and found he could make a lot of money off the blacks as long as he could keep friction going between whites and blacks, when he committed adultery he went silent and Al was everywhere keeping friction. as for Phil Robertson he spoke of what the Bible says, He did not sugar coat Gods word, and nor should he have. I did not hear any racist remarks, I only heard that he was considered white trash because he worked in the fields hoeing cotton along side the blacks, he saw them as being happy and spiritual. we have to many 50s folks leading this country with their 50s ways. and Jessie and Al with the 50s hate. I remember going hunting on this black mans land in Monroe county, he had about 200 acres of land, His name was Sylvester, he had his wife and two girls who about my age my dad and I would go there every Thanksgiving and hunt squrrels about all day and would always come back with 30 or more squirrels, Dad and I would be invited to have Thanksgiving with Sylvester and his family, His wife could cook better then anyone I know, I would go and talk with the girls and Dad and Sylvester would sit by the fireplace and talk. I walked in where they were sitting and Sylvester ask did I enjoy the meal and I replied with a yes, before I knew what hit me I was getting up off the floor with my father saying you say yes sir to any man who was my elder same for women, no matter what color was, I really do miss my time with that family, and I often think of how MLK, wish he could have been there with us. but can see how things went down hill when Jessie and Al started to feed off hate.


  15. Funny how “Rev” Jesse Jackson is taking offense at Phil’s words when they are based in the bible, which apparently the “Rev” has never even opened! For him to use the title to try and add credibility is disgraceful and is what a “wolf in sheep’s clothing” is all about! I will be so glad when we finally take our country back and hateful jerks like jackson and sharpton are finally silenced and not given any media attention. We can never move forward with hate filled bigots like them constantly in the spotlight.

  16. where were you when the gangs of black youth are attacking the white folk. i just remembered something you being the cheerleader egging them on.

  17. Mr, West , I admire you, the way you think , for speaking out and wanting to do whats right . We need more people like YOU in OUR GOVERNMENT . We/OUR country would be SO much better off . As for Jesse Jackson —- he needs to just step away, leave this alone and NOT TURN IT INTO A RACE ISSUE. IT HAS NOTHING to do with RACE . It does how have EVERYTHING TO DO WITH FREEDOM OF SPEECH, FREEDOM OF BELIEFS, FREEDOM OF RELIGION AND FREEDOM OF DECISION FOR OURSELVES. IF EVERYONE WOULD REALIZE, ACCEPT AND DO THESE FOUR THINGS IT WOULD BE A WONDERFUL WORLD .

  18. Jesse Jackson has turned his repulsive strong arm tactics into an art form. Not so much to aid blacks in their struggle for equality but to help finance the luxurious lifestyle Jackson has become accustomed to. His own son tried the same monetary me learned from his father and that landed him in jail for a 3 to 5 year stint. Jessee Jackson attaches himself to any story making news in ordef to try to intimidate the principals in order to solicit monies under the threat of negative press or a boycott of their products. Most often he displays his ignorance of facts and history instead perverting his own in order to support his imagined slight to black people. He is mostly a corrupt race baiter and needs to be strongly repremanded by the Justice Department. However, that particular department if our government has tarnished it’s own reputation through mismanagement, bias and it’s own illegal practices and initiatives. Select prosecution is a hallmark of this department justice has become a joke under Eric Holder.
    Expecting to see any reigning in of Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Coalition will have to await a different Administration that can separate these corrupt bedpartners.

  19. I would guess few blacks of any and all political leanings would agree with his assertion that what was said was more offensive than was said to rosa parks. That assertion demeans her heroic act as less significant than the insult gays assign to any proclamation of Gond’ word that they reject. He would have us make heroes out of those offended by Phil?

  20. I would guess few blacks of any and all political leanings would agree with his assertion that what was said was more offensive than was said to rosa parks. That assertion demeans her heroic act as less significant than the insult gays assign to any proclamation of God’s word that they reject. He would have us make heroes out of those offended by Phil?

  21. Jesse jackson along with Al Sharpton are racist in what they do. Getting the black community riled up against whites.

    I know the area Phil lives in. Everybody is treated the same, Back or white.
    I know Jesse Jackson will piss off Monroe LA..
    If Cracker Barrel caves in. I will not eat there again. The only show I watch on A&E is Duck Dynasty anymore.

  22. hey…jessee just wants his share of the money from “Duck Dynasty” and “Cracker Barrel” How else you expect him to feed his family>

  23. Allen, Jesse is in the business of enriching the Jesse Jackson family. All he uses is black economic blackmail. His aid to others would probably be a 1% with the 99% coming directly to him. Al said, Dear God, it worked for Jesse, where is my share. Have known poor black people who have done more for others than these two ever will. Hopefully the day will come when we all reach out to help the truly needy and our government will stopped creating more entitlement people. A hand up would be a lot better than a hand out. Best wishes to you in 2014..

  24. And I for one will keep “getting my grub on” at Cracker Barrel.

  25. I’m so sick of this. We have real trouble people. A president who is bankrupting us in the name of black people. Who do you think it will affect the most when the tax payers can no longer carry the burden that is being put on them? It will be the very people who need the help the most. There is so much graft in this government it stinks to high heaven. Allen or somebody better do something soon or we will all be in the poor house.

  26. There was a time I actually respected Jesse Jackson….guess I was young and naive….this is pure BS….he needs to have a date with Al Sharpton and no I will NOT call him Rev..cause he is NOT a man of God and have a good roll in the hay…..smh…what a worthless pos

  27. I agree with Allen West. It is time for common sense to prevail. If we shut down everyone that we disagree with then free discussion is eliminated. I don ‘t agree with GLADD but they have a right to express their opinion. However, Phil Robertson had a right to answer the questions as he felt would convey his views. Jesse Jackson really doesn’t need to get involved since Phil was just expressing his own experiences with fellow field workers. He was not putting himself above them. He seemed to be saying he was on their social level. So why does Jackson have a problem. Unless, he feels that there could nevet have been white men that interacted with black men without the white man being a bigot. That makes Jackson the one being prejudiced against whites. How about we just judge people by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin. I know we would all benefit from following Reverend King’s hope for future race relations. I agreed with him then and still feel that way today. Unfortunately, we seem to be going backwards rather forward since President Obama took office.

  28. Sorry Mr. Jackson, but Mr. Robertson’s remarks, though “crude” in our language, were from the law – the only one that matters in life, the law of God. You on the other hand have the human title “Reverend,” which from my studies indicates your ignorance of the root meaning of the word and was only used in antiquity to refer to God!

  29. Thank you for writing this. You are bang on when you say the more we keep racism as a topic, the more we feed it to exist. When we refer to ourselves as anything other than people, (black, white, christian, Muslim, conservative, liberal) we become segregated as a society. There are those that feed off this segregation and it’s time we made them starve.

  30. Jessie must have studied Caiphus the Pharasee on his manipulative skills in the crucifixion of the most perfect man. Yes Jessie you are a modern day pharisee like them of old both were blinded and bound by a code.

    • Charles, Jessie probably doesn’t even know what pharisee means. Remember who you are talking to. We have to keep it simple for stupid and ignorrant people.

  31. ‘There are still generations of people,
    older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that
    prejudice and racism, and they just have to die.’ – Oprah Winfrey

  32. Amen Alan. I don’t care the color of the skin of the person, its what they did. While there may be whites that consider that in their convictions (down in the Jim Crow era South for certain), I don’t see that today – evil is reviled as evil.

  33. Evil does not have a skin color white, black, brown, green with purple polka dots it does not matter. ALL colors have good and evil I for one stay away from evil nomatter what color it comes in. And for certain people to keep jumping in and trying to make everything about race instead of evil, They should be prosecuted for inciting deversion.

  34. haha I use that Booker T quote all the time it’s so true. I watched the news report on Fox about this last and its worth noting that the two commentators saying the same thing Allen is saying were also black.

  35. MLK like Col. West, would speak out against people like Jackson and Sharpton. There isn’t anything reverent about these two racist mercenaries.

  36. Jessie Jackson is only for what he can put into his pocket, money. If he would have been alive in Africa during the time of slaves, he would have sold his own people into slavery. By the way, there is no black person alive today that was a slave. So black people, please STOP!!! As for boycotting Cracker Barrel, bring it on. I will enjoy the shorter wait time for a table. As for boycotting A&E, we will just watch Duck Dynasty on anothet channel. Because you can best believe, there are networks waiting in line to pick up Phil and his family. GOD bless you Robertson family!!!

  37. Isn’t this man supposed to be a “man of the cloth?” Last I heard that required seminary school (which I think he attended…), which requires Bible reading, I’m pretty sure… If anybody would like to clear that up for the rest of us I’m sure we’d all appreciate it….

  38. Awesome Col …..dead on accurate. The mere sight of Jackson or Sharpton makes me want to hurl. They are the most despicable of human flesh.

  39. I am supporting Col West for President in 2016. An awesome human being and leader. Jesse Jackson, nor Hillary and her wife limpwilly can hold Col West’s jock strap.

  40. The fact that people dare call Jackson and Sharpton “leaders” offends me to the highest level. True leaders solve problems, lead people out of the darkness. These two race baiters do everything they can to keep “their people” in the dark. The sooner they are gone the sooner we can move forward as a nation. Until they are around and someone is willing to listen, we will continue to have race problems in our country.

  41. If there was a white version of Jesse Jackson, he would be out there demanding that Cracker Barrel change their name because it’s offensive to white people.

  42. The best way to get to Jesse Jackson is to not acknowledge him…..he is so full of greed, envy,and self absorption. All the things God says is wrong…pray for the man…he is a bigot and has fallen from God’s teachings to preach his own opinions.

  43. I think there should be a PAY PER VIEW of Phil Roberston DEBATING Jesse Jackson. WE COULD PAY OFF THE ENTIRE BUDGET WITH THE MONEY FROM THIS!!!

    • I like this. It would take Phil about half a minute to complete a thought an entire hour for Jessie to form his stupidity while sonding like his speaking with a mouth full of rough stones.

  44. If I were cracker barrel I would have my lawyers and FBI agents as employees and I would video tape the entire meeting, then get his ass prosecuted for the crimes he commits

  45. I read the crap he was spewing yesterday and just got thoroughly disgusted. Twisting words for his own purposes just gets old just like most of the stuff coming out of his mouth. I was shocked Sharpton hadn’t already stuck his nose in it. Money is their god, look at how he raised his son, Jackson jr. Him and his wife stole money from his political campaign and spent it on themselves. Good god-fearing christians who care about their brothers and sisters don’t do things like that or instigate trouble for their own means.

  46. What kind of personal job this person had? Is it true that he’s making a lot of his money by using or exposing his own people for his own personal gain? How stupid are black American ,mostly the rich and famous in their race not knowing this. How come they are mum on this? When jackson files for his income tax , How does he justify his incomes? How much this person makes a year? Is he really filling for his income tax? I think he’s living a very comfortable life, means he’s making a lot, what do you guys think? Can anybody help me on this?

  47. Jesse JAckson is the most odious POS to EVER come down the pike. Isn’t Blackmail against the law. And Who in the hell is he to demand anything from any body? I think the Black community, for the most part has come to recognize him for the charlatan he is and none of them see him as a leader of anything. Jackson is a puke who is in it for the money and his high living life. He should be right there beside his crooked son, where they both belong, In JAIL!! Remember him as B. Clinton’s counselor and there him was banging away with other women himself. Where is the memory of people?

  48. I say go for it Jesse, hopefully A&E and Cracker Barrel will show your racist rear end the door ! What do you think will be more costly for them, your bigoted noise making or the righteous anger of decent Americans who will refuse to support them if they cave in to your boorish bigotry ?

  49. Okay I have my definition of a nigggggaaa, that would be Jesse Jackson and all his friends that believe white people are the problem. There is your definition. I have heard that a niggga can be white or black. No that is not true. A nigggaa is a black person who continues to hate white people and blame whites for all their lazy ass crap.
    Stupid nigggggggggaaaaa shut up, go home. Slavery is still alive in this world today, you should be spending your time on that. So you don’t agree with the Bible, wow thought niggggas was into all that bs. Phil is more of a man than you and your Rainbow will ever be.

  50. I wish that folks who respond to articles like Mr. West’s, would stick to facts instead of fiction and name calling. That many do not like the sitting President, Obama, is a given. Calling him, and other African-Americans (Blacks, Negros, etc) “nigggggggggaaaaa” does not help any situation out, in any way. I also do not like the Revs. Jackson or Sharpton, and agree with West that they only forward their own agenda of keeping Blacks “on the plantation.”

    The entire controversy around “Duck Dynasty” is about one man’s personal comments, which he is entitled to have. Mr. West and I and millions of other men and women have guaranteed him that freedom of expression by our military service, and sometimes sacrifice, to this Country and to the Constitution of the United States. If you agree with his statements, that’s fine, and if you don’t agree, that’s fine also. But, keep it in prospective. At the end of the day, it is not what a TV or Movie “Star” has to say about anything, it is what you think and do that matters.

    Steadfast and Loyal also!

  51. I am so glad we have conservatives like you willing to fight the good fight.

    When are you going to run for governor somewhere? When someone runs for the Presidency I really prefer them to have the experience of running a state where they have to negotiate with other groups that don’t see things the way you do plus working budget issues.

    After all, aren’t we seeing what happens when you elect someone (twice) that never had that kind of experience?

    Hope to see you when you come to Louisiana…

  52. Personally, our family will not have anything to do with A&E or any other network that supports them. I quickly returned all Duck Dynasty products that I had already purchased for Christmas and swapped them with Duck Commander. I was shocked to see the “Christian Family Book Store” was still selling and promoting both. What a shame that such a large “Christian” orginization can’t even find it in their pockets to support a fellow Christian during their time of need. Again all about the money! No different than so many other “raciest” issues. The Zimmerman/Martin case was quickly make into something to make money off of. Streets are renamed the the name of “equality”. This is sad times in Amercian History. I personally watched our small southern town go from a KKK ran area to a very diverse area. And I am proud of that. No money should ever be made when it is a matter of Rights and our Constitution. We have the media running wild and flaring up issues that are not even there. White people are now on the other side of the fence. Racism goes both ways, just because someone is white dont automaticly make them a racist. And just because a person is black doesnt automaticly make them a victim. I have watched with my own eyes how life was and how it is now. and I am not saying that everything is perfect. I am not saying that I have seen it at its worst (but I have personally seen a cross burning and even at a young age…it broke my heart.) but what is even worse is to purposly keep someone from growing and holding anyone down from achieving their goals. I can say that I dont agree with alot of what people say, but freedom of speak says that they can say it. We as Amercian Citizens can however stop someone from mistreatment. That to is our American Right. Greed and the lack of people getting involved are causing a problem that really isnt even a problem. The media gets so many people all worked up, when most of them only know the partial statements that are released. Really people. Wake up, cant you see that the only reason there is SOOOO much racist crap in the media now is because they are making money off of you. During the Zimmerman/Martin case the media even cut up the phone conversation to make it sound like something completly different than what was actually said. And again with the Roberstons..they have cut up what he said to make it sound like something it is not. And all of us jump to “help” one side or the other like blind sheep that are just following what ever the news throws at us. How did we really let them get so much power over our actions? and when did we start blindly start fighting and bickering over propaganda? Yes the new to has freedom of speach, it is our jobs to find out the whole story, because their pockets are what actually rule what we are told. We only hear what they think will bring the rating, which brings them even more money. Come on…one day we all have to stop being so ignorant and stop following these money hungry groups to our own doom. We are allowing them to tear our wonderful country apart for their own gain. We are allowing them to create tension and civil unrest while they are living high on the hog. We are allowing them to control our actions and the sadest part, we are allowing the to erase all of the progress that has been made. All while we work hard and still struggle for our most basic living conditions. Do any of you even notice that while we are duck taping our vehicals and depending on hunting for food, these networks and “reporters” and “defenders of racial rights” (like Jesse Jackson) are all eating well, living well and driving nice cars. I personally am tired of giving them the money that we have worked so hard to earn. I am tired of hearing about them after they see that they can make a profit on someone elses back. I am tired of being manipulated and I am tired of being controlled by ANYONE!! As for me and my house…we are taking over. We are no longer allowing anyone to manipulate us into thinking any specfic way, we will do our own research our own reporting, and we will have a happier and better educated life. Good luck to each of you, times may be bad, but I am sure that as this continues….it will get worse before it gets better!

  53. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are some of those false prophets the bible warns you about to not listen to or you as sheep maybe be led astray. They are two peas in a pod and love to keep the black man down and the white man feeling sorry for them. I feel sorry for who ever listens to them because its dumb and dumber not sure which would be which. Those two guys make it harder for the black people and should be removed from this earth it would be a better place.

  54. I have my 11 th and 12 th grade American Lit students read Booker T. Washington’s Up From Slavery each year. They all LOVE it. It’s always one of the favorite books of the year.

  55. I am proud to know that black men like Allen West, Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, Dr. Benjamin Carson and many other who are speaking out about the way people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are doing their best to keep racism alive. A white person could not make a difference but these men sure can and I think they are. How can you NOT have respect for these intelligent, educated, well-spoken black men when at least two of them endure racism beyond anything that todays youth endure. When they talk, I listen and I think their message is spreading.

  56. Amy Willis Mr.
    Jackson You are just like every other prejudices Black person in this country who has been taught and is pushing entitlement. You call
    every issue that you don’t agree with and spoken by a white person racism. The use of the terms like a glass of milk, Isn’t that
    prejudiced and racism? Oh I forgot your entitled. We all know that you are a part
    of the wicked elite and we know who you get your orders( Hegelian
    Dialectic)from to cause friction. Just remember it is not too late to
    change your direction kneel down to the Lord Jesus Christ and ask for
    forgiveness for every knee shall bow when he returns. None of us want
    to be your slaves anymore! Look it up people it is being used on you
    today. I hope this gets back to Jessey Jackson

  57. Sometimes relics (NAACP, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, SCLC) love to hear themselves talk like they talked 40 years ago. Only to realize that when you hear them talk, it’s like listening to a record with the needle stuck on the scratch.

    Instead of standing up for the unborn and advocating LGBT positions, we see that the old line is used to spark racism.

    Put them all in a glass case with a sign.

    “Don’t Even Bother To Break Glass.”

  58. Nice to see that West jumped over what Robertson said in regards to growing up in pre-civil rights Louisiana.

    “I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person,” Robertson is quoted in GQ. “Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field…. They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!… Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”

    Robertson is the one that brought up the issue.

      • Jackson did not inject race into Robertson’s statement. Robertson did. Everyone has been so focused on Robertson’s comments regarding homosexuality that they completely overlooked the race issue.
        Considering all of the racial discrimination that took place in the south in the past, Robertson’s comments made it seem as if blacks were happy with the issue.
        “Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers.”
        So, there were no black farmers there? Surely there must have been some self-reliant blacks that could have bought a farm. Gee, maybe there was something in place in that area that prevented blacks from achieving the American dream?

      • My understanding is that his comments were about what he, personally saw regarding those withwhom he worked on a daily basis, not general commentary on the South. So if that’s what he, personally, saw, why is that an issue for you? Were you there at the time to see something else, in the cotton fields Phil was working?

      • No, I wasn’t there. I only have the information of my paternal grandparents who moved from Louisiana due to hostility for being “uppity”. Of course, it could have been because grandpa roughed up the farmer that shortchanged him in regards to sharecropping.

      • I suspect that COULD have something to do with it. All I know for sure is I grew up back in those times and my parents did NOT teach mr or my siblings any form of racism. Which is something for which I thank God almost daily. Apparently, neither did Mr. Robertson’s.

      • You grew up back in those times. Did you happen to live in the South? Happen to notice any of the “Colored Only” rest rooms, or “Colored only” drinking fountains? Maybe you noticed how “Coloreds” couldn’t sit at the counter for many diners. I’m sure they were very happy about being treated to such special accommodations.

      • Nope. Never did see such except in pictures. I grew up more northerly, in an industrial area where we were all equally poor.

      • David, I appreciate your honesty. However, Mr.Robertson did grow up in the South, and was in an area where the Jim Crow laws were in full effect. His statement, which Jackson has issue with, made it seem as if Blacks were happy in those conditions. I’m quite sure there were times where he went into town and saw those posted signs that dictated where “Coloreds” could sit, drink, or eat.

      • There were many times when life was less than ideal as I was growing up, but when I was hanging out with my friends, no matter what we might be doing, joy abounded. I suspect that was also true when Robertson was working alongside his friends (and, being from and in similar circumstances, friends is what they likely were. Friends mostly rise amongst those who have similar experiences; I am a life-long Marine, so virtually ALL my friends are either Marines or other vets, especially Vietnam vets). Yes, he knew what was going on, but how did that affect him and his friends?

        We as humans can find moments of happiness in virtually every condition and circumstance, even while doing our utmost to change those conditions. So what I am saying is that Phil Robertson’s comments on his youth do not on the face of it paint him as a racist, as too many want to do, and hang him from the nearrrest oak tree for it.

      • Phil Robertson’s comments, based on his own experiences, make it seem that blacks were happy under the Jim Crow laws. That is the basis of Jackson’s complaint.
        I do agree that Robertson’s comments were intended to mean that blacks were happier before many of the welfare programs were enacted.

      • Now there I agree. I believe Johnson’s “war on poverty” was the worst thing in the world for black families, breaking up so many of them, leaving gazillions of kids with no fathers in their homes, encouraging and rewarding irresponsibility and creating generations of welfare addicts and democrat voters, which was his intent!

      • When you consider the segregation and treatment of Blacks during this time period in the South, I don’t see how you can consider these comments anything but racist. To me it’s to ignore a part of history that hurt others. It’s a lot like saying everything was swell before women received their rights including the right to vote.

      • Man says his family was considered “white trash” and he worked alongside a lot of black folks. he says they got along ang were happy together. his statement, not mine.Nothing for me to spin.

      • Geez, spare me! Make excuses for the guy because he has a popular show why don’t you. What he said was plain wrong. Read your history book. I was a young child in the South during the Sixties and even I could recognize that Blacks were treated differently.

  59. What, pray tell, does the perennial parasite Jesse Jackson have lecturing Cracker Barrel/A&E?

    “There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the
    street and hear footsteps then turn around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”
    – Jesse Jackson

    “There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy, and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. … There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.” — Booker T. Washington in his 1911 book, My Larger Education

  60. Col. West, I feel lucky to read your posts. I know that there have always been men of quality in the Black community but in years past the pressure to remain silent was great. I worked in a Milwaukee Heat Treating plant with one such forward thinking man. My own course took me to drugs, alcholism, and prison. Bobs took him to better things. I wish I would have kept in touch but he didn’t need that kind of burden in his life. I want to encourage you to run for President in 2016. People need to understand that BHO is not representative of Black America.

  61. The entire libtard manifesto is built on the “victimhood phylosophy”. Without it they have no power. They will beat this dead horse until it gets back up and beats them back. They are stuck in arrested emotional behavior and retarded developement. We use to call it “King Baby syndrom” (I want what I want when I want it!).

      • I do not like
        Jesse Jackson and his nonsense and I do think highly of Allen West . However in
        defense of Scooter you need to read Phil Robertson’s article before you call
        this guy a racist. It was Phi who stated that Blacks were happy during the
        Pre-Civil Rights Era and went on to utter other words that I don’t believe for
        a minute. Read the comments, which can be found at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/19/phil-robertson-black-people_n_4473474.html.
        I am not a Black individual, but there are three things I can say for certain
        when I read Robertson’s comments, 1) they are racist, 2) American history makes
        it very clear if he did not notice the ill treatment of Blacks during this time
        period in the South, then he was either too stoned to notice or he is not
        telling the truth. Facts are facts, like them or not, and 3) I don’t have to be
        Black to be angered by this, I want to see our country move forward when it
        comes to racism, not backwards. I have never watched the show, but I can tell
        you already, I will never start, because I don’t find this kind of humor funny
        at all. Even when it comes to the homosexual remarks, which I find to be a sin
        as well, there is a right way and a wrong way to make your point and as a
        fellow Christian I hope he will reconsider what kind of message he might be
        sending to unbelievers.

    • Phil Robertson didn’t actually say that…he said he didn’t see all the mistreatment of blacks. Neither did I. Of course, I ddn’t live in the big city either. The area I lived in (Georgia) we depended on one another, we were neighbors and friends………..we all worked “hard” together. Then, the Demoncrats somehow got involved (to make it all better)……and systematically began to enslave the blacks thru poverty and dependency. Thus, becoming the political plantation.










    • Actually, he was often referred to as the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It was a fairly even split on Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
      Also, and you can check the voting records on this, it was the Republican Presidential candidate of 1964 who, as a Senator, had voted against the Civil Rights Act, which led to Reverend King denouncing the Republican party as racist.

  64. poor Jesse he was all broke up when this nobody Obama came on the scene and won an election that he couldn’t because not even black people would vote for him. so he has to get attention some where

  65. I hope this is the beginning of the end for the race baiting grievance industry. Jackson is already set for life from his extortion racket of the last few decades…..now Sharpton needs to be relegated to the back alleys of history where his sorry ass belongs.

  66. Oh my. You have an inner awareness that is too deep fior many to handle. May you be blessed and protected to speak the truth with wisdom and grace in Jesus name.

  67. Col. West doesn’t like competition. He wants to be the only race-hustler people listen to. I would like to ask Col. West instead of kowtowing to the bigot by justifying their prejudice why don’t you go to the neighbourhoods and find out about the people you villify.

    • You’re and refuse to entertain the idea that the biggest racists are blacks. They keep their own selves wallowing in the poor me, put upon by the wicked whites. Please. Get a job. Get your own paycheck. Make something of YOURSELF like any other independent person has done. Stop blaming anyone else for your problems. You don’t like Col. West? You’ll hate Michael Massey – he too is sick of sniveling blacks who deliberately remain too ignorant for change.

  68. Does Col. West believe that race mixing is immoral? There are those who
    feel that miscegenation is an evil and a danger to whites around the world. What does West believe?
