Jesse Jackson is a leader. Perhaps, only in mythical terms. For the most part, American black citizens has went secular. The community's notable celebrated achievements in the modern era are secular. However, let use Jesse Jackson as a leadership object. Select a year to begin, either 1970 or 1980, either will do. 1970, is the first year in American history its black citizens are free. Or 1980, when the realization came to the black community civil rights was a big lie. Didn't exist and will never exist.

Jesse Jackson is a leader continues. Select two other leaders, at the beginning of the 1980's, Thomas Sowell and Clarence Thomas. An easy comparison, Though Justice Thomas sits on the U.S. Supreme Court, in the year 2013, and has sat on the court for over 20 years. lets say he is unknown in the black community, in the Russian parlance, a total non-person. Thomas Sowell, just an unknown person within the American black community.

Jesse Jackson leader continues. The three ingredients for high functioning interpersonal skills are leadership. contributions, and participation.
Jesse Jackson would be graded 100% A+, participation within our community.
He would be graded 99% A+ for contributions.
Rev. Jackson stood and never gave in to extreme negative forces, 100% A+ for leadership.
Can't remember ever hearing of Thomas Sowell or Justice Thomas participating in anyway with the American black community. Therefore couldn't have made a contribution or provided leadership, no grades for ether..

Jesse Jackson leader continues. He led the American black community from zero participation 1970. He was instrumental in the 1980's reality check for the black community.
Today, he provided the new players, social, political, economic, at work, in schools, and at home.
An accomplishment of mythical proportions?????
There is no question that liberals do an impressive job of expressing concern for blacks. But do the intentions expressed in their words match the actual consequences of their deeds?

San Francisco is a classic example of a city unexcelled in its liberalism. But the black population of San Francisco today is less than half of what it was back in 1970, even though the city's total population has grown.

Severe restrictions on building housing in San Francisco have driven rents and home prices so high that blacks and other people with low or moderate incomes have been driven out of the city....
