Jesse Jackson is cooler than I thought. Here he talks about his fight to tell Appalachian voters that they don't have to hurt themselves. The more people vote to keep others down, the more they keep themselves down. We all have to realize that rich folks are going to keep getting rich, even if you are the same color as them. Just being the same color doesn't mean they are for your interests.

The country we live in is the same country, the world we live in is the same world. People should stop trying to ruin things for others because they are scared. Only courage will get us through, and you know what? Courage means venturing out of your comfort level. It means abandoning stereotypes and seeing what's really going on.

When you are controlled by fear of the other, or the unknown, can you really help anyone? I don't think so.
