The Rev. Jesse Jackson finds himself in deep you-know-what because of his now infamous comment about cutting off an extremely vital anatomical area of Barack Obama.

In a video aired Wednesday night on the Fox program “The O’Reilly Factor,” Jackson leans over and whispers to fellow panelist Dr. Reed V. Tuckson, executive vice president and chief of medical affairs for UnitedHealth Group, “See, Barack been, um, talking down to black people on this faith based … I want cut his nuts off … Barack … he’s talking down to black people.” Jackson appeared to make a stabbing or cutting motion with his hand as he made the remarks.

NOTE: For the sake of accuracy, it isn’t clear if Jackson said “cut his n**s off” or “cut his n**s out.” It’s being reported both ways. When you see and hear the comment, it’s difficult to tell. The incident happened during a taping this past Sunday. Jackson moved quickly to apologize to the Obama camp before it went public. He also finds himself with a lot explaining to do in in the court of public opinion. “Well, they were hurtful and wrong, that’s the whole point,” Jackson said of his words. “And when you make mistakes you should not equivocate. You should be quick to go into offensive and not try to be evasive. And if it was said to him personally or in some public forum it would be even more hurtful. In this case, my error was responding to a question before a live mic. And so when he does hear them they will not be helpful; they will be hurtful. We have a relationship that can survive this.”


The big red carpet premiere for “Meet Dave” was without its “Dave” on Tuesday. Star Eddie Murphy missed the event, according to, because he was busy on the set of his next film, “A Thousand Words.” He’s not here because he’s doing a movie and shooting – he goes back-to-back-to-back,” producer David T. Friendly told People on the premiere’s red carpet. “Eddie, he’ll never admit it, but he loves to work. And I think work keeps him happy.”
Murphy’s co-star Gabrielle Union did show up, and said the actor is “at peace” after recent activity that included a sudden split from his fiancée Tracey Edmonds last winter. “He’s a really cool guy,” says Union. “His kids were always on set. He’s just really cool and at peace with himself.”

Black History Factafrican-american-history.jpgcarter-g-woodson.jpg

1891: A black jockey, “Monk” Overton, won six straight horse races at the Washington Park race track in Chicago. In 1907, another black jockey, Jimmy Lee, also won six straight races at Churchill Downs in Louisville. Prior to 1907, only two other jockeys had equaled the achievements of Overton and Lee, the Englishmen Fred Archer and George Fordham.
