Martin Luther King, Jr., Andrew Young, and Jesse Jackson Told Racial Jokes To Each Other

According to Joan Baez.

Legendary civil rights campaigner Martin Luther King, Jr loved telling "racial jokes" about himself and members of his entourage, according to folk singer Joan Baez.


Baez says, "Before performing at the March on Washington I spent a lot of time with Dr King. In private, he and his lieutenants - Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young and others - were constantly ragging on each other and telling racial jokes about themselves! Totally not PC. I'd be standing there with my mouth open thinking, 'Oh dear, we're not supposed to say these things', and they'd just be howling!

She also says they told "dirty" jokes.

From @williamamos

Oh, and MSNBC I guess is adding its own racial humor to the lineup.

I call this joke "Pilgrims on Thanksgiving."

SHARPTON: Give me your idea of the kinds of things people ought to deal with this Thursday when their families and friends get together.

HARRIS-PERRY: You know, it's an interesting question. I've been thinking a lot about Thanksgiving and the moment that we're in because, you know, our economic crisis right now is highly tied to the European economic crisis and so I was thinking about kind of what is that first Thanksgiving when these illegal immigrants from Europe come over and are fed by the people of the actual Americas, the Native and indigenous people, you know, here on this land, that they are trying to escape religious prosecution and persecution in Europe and then you have the Europeans basically calling them dirty, no good, worthless, basically 99 percenters, right? And all of that is now playing out in a different way as we see the 99 percent pushing back against this idea that the elites are the only one that deserve to have a Thanksgiving dinner. All of that.

So this radical racial Marxist will be an MSNBC weekend host.

This woman is supposed to be a professor. I think Adam Carolla was just describing his idea of "Art" simply as "if I couldn't do it, then it's art." Which makes sense. Art is craft. If you just cut a big piece of steel and throw it up in a plaza, I could have done that. So you're not demonstrating any more craft than a talentless guy like me has. So it's not art.

Applying this rule to academic scholarship: If you're speaking in a goofball racial cant which I could easily make up myself as a parody, and not name-checking any movement, person, or event more obscure than the Pilgrims, and the current rage OWS, which all children have heard of, then you're not a "professor." You're some kind of huckster who gamed the system to get a fake job with a real paycheck.
