Fox: Rev. Jesse Jackson Used The N-word by texazzpete(m): 8:15am On Jul 17, 2008

CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- The Rev. Jesse Jackson used the N-word during a break in a TV interview where he criticized presidential candidate Barack Obama, Fox News confirmed Wednesday.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson apologized to Sen. Obama's campaign last week over "hurtful" remarks.

The longtime civil rights leader already came under fire this month for crude off-air comments he made against Obama in what he thought was a private conversation during a taping of a "Fox & Friends" news show.

In additional comments from that same conversation, first reported by TVNewser, Jackson is reported to have said Obama was "talking down to black people," and referred to blacks with the N-word when he said Obama was telling them "how to behave."

Though a Fox spokesman confirmed to The Associated Press that Jackson used the slur, the network declined to release the full transcript of the July 6 show and did not air the comments.

Jackson, who is now traveling in Spain, apologized in a statement last Wednesday for "hurtful words" but didn't offer specifics.

"I am deeply saddened and distressed by the pain and sorrow that I have caused as a result of my hurtful words. I apologize again to Senator Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, their children as well as to the American public," Jackson said in a written statement.

"There really is no justification for my comments and I hope that the Obama family and the American public will forgive me. I also pray that we, as a nation, can move on to address the real issues that affect the American people."

A spokeswoman for Jackson's civil rights organization, Rainbow/PUSH Coalition, said she could not confirm that Jackson used the slur

People here know i've never trusted this hypocritical racist from day one. He's earlier proved his status as a hypocrite before (anti-semitic comments from someone who claims to fight against racial discrimination, preaching about family values yet having a long term mistress and daughter outside his marriage) but this one takes the cake.

This man is as racist as an KKK member out there. his handling of the Duke Uni scandal where a black stripper falsely accused white lacrosse players of raping her (making inflammatory statements, promising to put the girl on scholarship even when it became obvious that she was lying http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2006_Duke_University_lacrosse_team_scandal)

Hell, Even Nas says Rev. Jesse Jackson is "the biggest player hater" and has declared 'Jackson's time as a voice for black America over.'

I never trusted that 'mild' rable rouser. He always struck me as a racist who thinks racism equals white against black.

Not the same Jesse Jackson. . . the self appointed representative of blacks, who grants absolution to white people when they say the N word? It can't be!

Who. . . who is gonna grant forgiveness to the forgiver?

Yep, end time is near!

Fox News put the words in Jackson's mouth?? WOW!! I can not believe someone would actually see to blame Fox News for Jesse Jackson's rants. Has Fox News been to blame for all the other times he has shown his racist side to America? WOW!!

Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are media whores. They would do anything to attract publicity. Like someone said 'f**k Jesse Jackson because it aint about race now'.
