This year’s conference, 2004: A Year of Critical Choices For Inclusion and Growth, has extra significance as this presidential election year marks the 20th anniversary of Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr.'s historic run for the presidency of the United States.

Update: Rapping a Family Affair

Guess who's taken Barack Obama's side against Jesse

"...The Rev. Jackson, as you may or may not recall, was caught on videotape this week whispering during a Fox News interview saying, "See, Barack's been, um, talking down to black people on this faith-based ... I want to cut his ... off."

His words have angered many in the black community. He has apologized. Barack has accepted.
But rapper Nas told MTV that the civil rights leader is finished.
"I think Jesse Jackson, he's the biggest player hater," Nas said. "His time is up. All you old ..., time is up. We heard your voice, we saw your marching, we heard your sermons. We don't wanna hear that ... no more. It's a new day. It's a new voice. I'm here now. We don't need Jesse; I'm here. I got this. We got Barack, we got David Banners and Young Jeezys. We're the voice now. It's no more Jesse. Sorry. Goodbye. You ain't helping nobody in the 'hood.

That's the bottom line. Goodbye, Jesse. Bye!"

Click here to hear Nas say buh-bye, Jesse!"
Note To McCain's handlers: Have McCain just go to functions and tell the people that "I am waiting to see if I have an opponent on the issues, It seems Barack is moving my way."

He may move so far right the Mainstream Media will say what the hell is going on.
