Jesse Jackson and Racism

March 20, 1988

I'm really getting sick of white boys telling other folks what they can't do. This nonsense not only demoralizes those blacks who have struggled and succeeded--like myself, but it calls most whites racists, including my white friends. Are 30% of all white people racists? How about 40%? Where are you coming from, dude?

Just as Phillips cannot imagine Jackson reining in a National Security Council that is running away with the Constitution, I can hardly imagine a President who sleeps through cabinet meetings. Do you think that our new NSC adviser would find a black man intimidating? What's the deal? Mr. Phillips, are you afraid of Jackson? Do shivers run up your suburban spine?
