What did Jesse Jackson say about Barack?

Original post made by Susan, Midtown, on Jul 16, 2008

I am hearing some pretty nasty things, but I am not sure. I heard the original tape, in which Jesse Jackson said he wanted to cut off Barack's personal parts, becasue he talked down to black people. However, I have heard much worse than this.

Does anyone know, for sure?

That is what he said. Even Jesse's son was upset by the comment.

Below is the partial transcript we received in our tips box, and confirmed to be authentic by Fox News Channel representatives.

Barack...he's talking down to black people...telling n—s how to behave.

So, yes. Jesse Jackson did use the "N" word. But it was not directed at Barack Obama. Fox News and Bill O'Reilly have maintained there was more on the tape, but that the un-aired portion was not relevant to the issue at hand: about whether Obama was "talking down" to the black community.
