Jackson on March

September 13, 1998

In his Sept. 6 Column Left, "Hear the Message, Skip the Messenger," Jesse Jackson makes an odious comparison of Khalid Muhammad and Louis Farrakhan to Martin Luther King Jr. While Muhammad and Farrakhan preach hatred, bigotry and vengeance, Dr. King urged oppressed people to rise up in a nonviolent manner to demand their rights.

Where are the good people among the minorities--like Dr. King? Why don't they organize and lead marches? Why leave these activities in the hands of hatemongers?
