George Will on Jesse Jackson

February 05, 1988

Will is to be congratulated for finally "pulling the covers" on Jackson. Jackson has had a free ride from the press and the other Democratic candidates because of his skin color.

It is time that careful attention be focused on the content of Jackson's statements, the assorted misrepresentations of his background and his persistent anti-Semitism. Many other blacks would have made far more credible candidates than Jackson. Unfortunately, the uniqueness of a black man running for national office in the United States has transformed that individual into a "sacred cow."
