The likes of “Rev.” Jesse Jackson and “Rev.” Al Sharpton have been written about as far back as 1911. Seems these uncharactered types have a long history of “making merchandise” of their own people for personal gain.

Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” (p. 118) –
