When anything involving race happens anywhere, you can be sure that Reverend Jesse Jackson will make it there.
Naturally, with a black man being shot in Ferguson, Missouri, he shows up. But this time, the Reverend didn’t quite think out his strategy; and when he pulled out his bullhorn, the protesters ran him out of town.
What could he have done that was so bad, that even a predominantly black community ran him out of town?
How about asking the protesters for donations for his Church.
According to reports and witnesses on Twitter, that’s exactly what he did.

Perhaps Jackson should have thought a little bit more before being so callous during this sensitive time?
