Jesse Jackson: Ferguson Protesters Want You to Know, ‘We Don’t Want You Here!’ (Video)

Jesse Jackson in Ferguson

*Uh oh. On Friday a video surfaced on the web showing civil rights activist Jesse Jackson being confronted by Ferguson, MO, protesters who were clearly unhappy with his presence in the city.

The video was posted by the conservative website Western Journalism.

“Are you marching today with us, or are you just going to sit in the car?” one of the men confronting Jackson says in the video.

Jackson can barely be heard saying things like, “I’ve been marching all day,” to which a protester responds, “We haven’t seen you marching.”

At another point Jackson says, “I’ve been with the Brown family all day,” a comment which one protester repeats, but questions.

The video was recorded in a McDonald’s parking lot, and Jackson looks very uncomfortable as the voice of the protesters grown more agitated.

“When you going to stop selling us out, Jesse?” one of the protesters says. “We don’t want you here in St. Louis! When you gonna stop selling us out, Jesse?”

The St. Louis suburb continues to be in a state of unrest since 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally wounded on Aug. 9 by Darren Wilson, a white police officer.

Jackson has been in Ferguson leading rallies to call for justice for Brown.

It’s unclear from the video what exactly the protesters are confronting Jackson about, though they do question him on whether he’s going to bail out some other unnamed persons from jail.

  1. Why is JJ responsible for bailing out whoever is in jail? If this moron is concerned about this person being in jail, why doesn’t he bail him out? That was really ignorant.
