Kroger (and other) grocery stores close because they aren't making money, not only that, they have tried many different things,
but are still unsuccessful so they close. Now Jesse thinks its a racial thing (of course he does)
Let me tell you something, I have a secret on Mr. Jesse J. When the crazy stuff was happening in Sanford Florida due to the Trayvon Martin shooting, Jesse Jackson and Sharpton gave speeches and rallies such in the predominantly minority part of town. When they were finished riling up everyone they drove with their entourage right out to the most non minority area and stayed in the most swanky hotel.
How do I know, because I saw them with my own eyes!! All I could think of at the time was what hypocrites they are. I mean, we all know it, but they were just being so blatant about it.
Sure Jesse has every right to stay and spend where he wants, but how hypocritical of him to not spend his $$ in the minority establishments and then blame stores like Kroger for closing when he himself is part of the problem.

How people like this manage to gain any credibility is beyond me. He has literally made a career of soapboxing off the shoulders of impoverished minorities. Yet has made no discernible difference in the lives of anyone.
The word "hack" comes to mind...
