отправлено 1 год назад, изменено автор RevJesseJackson. I am a Baptist minister and civil rights leader, and founder and president of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition. Check out this recent Mother Jones profile about my efforts in Silicon Valley, where I’ve been working for more than a year to boost the representation of women and minorities at tech companies. Also, I am just back from Charleston, the scene of the most traumatic killings since my former boss and mentor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. I've always said the 2 of them perpetuate their own need to exist, and the black community, and the country, would be better without them at this point.
