Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. Called for A Moment of Crotch-grabbing in Tribute to Michael Jackson.
Today, the United States House of Representatives violated the Constitutional prohibition on mingling religion with government, by giving thanks to God for newly deceased pop star, Michael Jackson, whom Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. of Illinois said not only “changed the world,” but changed himself from a Black man into a White … uh, um, ah, something or other. The Congressman requested all members to stand and offer a “moment of crotch-grabbing” in the House this morning as a tribute to Michael Jackson for establishing his Neverland Ranch as a place of refuge and love for young boys of all races and creeds, and for proving to those Americans born Black that they do not have to accept their fate, but can metamorphasize themselves into White folk and be proud.

When asked to explain why the United States Congress does not publicly give thanks to God on the floor of the House chamber for American soldiers who sacrifice their lives in battle for their fellow countrymen, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. asked if any of them were celebrated as the World’s Greatest Musician of all time; greater than Bach, Beethoven and even Elvis. Congressman Jackson continued: “As fine as our warriors are, none of them has yet been able to fight in battle wearing a sequined glove upon one hand, much less moon-walk while carrying arms into battle.”
