  1. I’m sitting here, reading this article, claiming that Jesse Jackson, the Civil Rights Pioneer has been accused of sexual harassment and my mind is working overtime trying to piece this image in my mind and it just doesn’t register. First, the accuser is 55 years of age and I know Jackson, who was old when I was a kid, should be rocking deep into his 70’s, states that Jackson approached him for oral sex. Hmm, it makes you wonder (at least it does me) what in the heck could really be going on here. I love math and this word problem doesn’t seem to have a middle or an end … only what happened that surely didn’t get started. Still, to the accuser, my hat goes off to you. You put yourself in the position when you should have manned up and set the record straight when you were tasked with such tedious jobs, as you stated.

  2. Are you suggesting that Jesse Jackson’s innocent because he’s old? Cause that makes no sense whatsoever. Old men still desire oral sex (see: Hugh Hefner). The fact that the accuser is 55 is also irrelevant.
