… no matter if the report is true or not. Via the AP (emphasis added):
DURHAM – The Rev. Jesse Jackson said Saturday his Rainbow/Push Coalition will pay the college tuition of a woman who told police she was raped by members of Duke University’s men’s lacrosse team while working as a stripper — no matter the outcome of the case.
“I can’t wait … to talk with her and have prayer with her, because our organization is committed, when she’s physically and emotionally able … to provide for her the scholarship money to finish school so she will never … again have to stoop that low to survive,” he said from Chicago in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.
When asked, the civil rights leader also said his group will pay for the woman’s tuition even if her report proves false.
In other words, it’s the appearance of being a black victim that matters most to Jackson. Whether the person actually is a victim means very little. Same ol’ same ol’.
Usually, where you find Jackson you’ll find Al Sharpton, but so far Sharpton – infamous for his role in the Tawana Brawley rape hoax – has been a no show, despite reports that he was supposed to be in Durham last week. Let’s hope he stays away.
