no, you dont see Jesse and Sharpton because they are now very old, and it seems to be the only two names of Civil rights attorneys the general public can know or remember. Most of these people and movements are utilizing counsel, of various nationalities and ethnicity, so you know. Two guys who were only popular in a particular decade are not necessarily needed to jet all over America for every civil rights litigation involving those of a darker complexion.




Lol what? Where have you been the last 10 yrs. that's exactly what they've been doing as recently as this last summer

Eh, I dunno man. I dont see them on the news very often at all. In a different decade, yea they were going from state to state, always reaching for a national spotlight. Not so much anymore. Well for Jesse, I suppose it would have to do wit the stain of his son's antics with his spouse and campaign funds

Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. sentenced to 30 months in prison
Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison Wednesday for illegally spending $750,000 in campaign funds on personal items, the judge scolding the son of the famed civil rights leader for using the money as a "piggy bank" and sentencing his wife to a year as well.

However, Jackson, who emotionally apologized to his father, mother, congressional colleagues and others, was given significantly less prison time than federal guidelines recommend, recognized by the judge as a "complex person" who has done both good and bad.
Sandra Jackson, a former Chicago alderman, was sentenced for filing false joint federal income tax returns.
Federal sentencing guidelines called for a prison term of 46 to 57 months -- or just under four years to just under five years. The government had recommended four years, while Jackson's lawyers had asked that his sentenced be limited to 18 months.

some of that damn privilege I been hearing about going around lately.

well hey, at least you tried right


That Sharpton does what he can, but its not as if he is the only black civics leader of a community in the nation. Im saying is, just because he is not around to be a name paraded around in a headline, does not mean the community is not receiving their counseling from other local civic leaders and attorneys and so on. I agree he is a money hungry pit of bullsnap, but he is not in his prime no more. He just shows up to what he believes in nowadays I guess. Its not as if his name is drawing bids for brand placement by sponsors if he gets airtime, like the good ol days. Thats all I am saying, you know what im saying... YO!
