IT'S EASY FOR ME TO SAY -- I'M NOT BLACK

If I were black, I'd be embarrassed that Jesse Jackson is viewed as a leader of the "black community" (whatever that is these days). He has been a con man almost from the moment Dr. King was assassinated (if not before).

Jackson was always a good "face" man. But for a lot of years he has seemed to be getting more and more out-of-touch.

Shelby Steele, in his article in the OpinionJournal (may require registration) raises a key question as to whether (to paraphrase a 1960's black leader's limus test) Jesse is part of the solution, or part of the problem.
