Jesse Jackson and Racism

March 20, 1988

I will be very proud to vote this year. This feeling of enthusiasm is inspired by what I am seeing and hearing of Jackson. I have waited years for such a candidate.

I see a man like myself that wants true peace, obtainable through humanitarian efforts; equal rights for young and old; a policy on the elimination of drugs in this country; an awareness of the needs of the worker, not to mention his stand on equal rights.

I remember the saying, "They'll never elect a Catholic as President." Now I'm hearing that Jackson is unelectable. No one is unelectable if the people of this country don't let it happen--as they did with John F. Kennedy. You will also hear that Jackson lacks political experience. We cannot support that theory. Look at our present Administration and its manner of "politics."

One vote can make a difference. Think about it.
