On April 17th, Jesse Jackson was interviewed on CNN about the Duke lacrosse rape case. He claimed the case demonstrated the classic white male fantasy of having a black woman in sexual servitude, a fantasy that brings back the worst aspects of chattel slavery.
When informed no individual on the lacrosse team specifically requested a black stripper, Jackson nonetheless maintained, “that is what they got.”
It seems to avoid Jackson’s claim, the team would have had to specifically request a white stripper.
I wonder what Jackson’s response would have been to that?
