Chaka to Jesse:

You're a Butthead!

3/14/2007 5:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Not only did Chaka Khan skip a meet and greet with recent co-Grammy winners Tony Bennett and Stevie Wonder last night in Washington -- only to have a date with the Marlboro Man, she also dissed Rev. Jesse Jackson (behind his back) because he got in the way of her puffery.

Chaka Khan
TMZ spotted the D-I-V-A enjoying a cig near the Capitol before she performed "Tell Me Something Good" at an event honoring Wonder's wondrous songwriting when, suddenly, an assistant quickly ran up to her and whispered that Jackson was coming out to meet her.

"Oh no!" shouted Chaka. "I don't want to put this out." Still, she dashed the ash and turned all smiles when Jackson emerged from a building just seconds after the warning. After exchanging pleasantries, she even entered her digits into his Blackberry. Jackson left after a couple of minutes, shouting with a grin, "I'll call you soon, sugar."

"Jesus!" Chaka yelled as soon as Jackson disappeared from earshot. "I just wanted to smoke!" And then she lit up.

JACKSON IS A SCUMBAG RACIST. Why are people so afraid of this Negroid Grifter. He will probably try to grift money out of her somehow...But she IS black...His targets are usually whites or companies. He is a shakedown artist with a grudge against Capitalism. Without racial strife, Jackson would be picking up garbage...Or perhaps actually tending to his "flock" in church! Hey, where is the "REVERENDS" church anyways? Maybe hiding behind his closet full of $6000 suits??????????????

I know I would rather smoke than meet Mr. Jackson. No, he should not even call himself Reverend...that mean's a holy person, which he is as far from as anyone could get. Adulterer, cheater, money-loving, power monger. GET OFF THE HILL AND GO HOME, JESSE...

He's Boring now    

He is one of the main reasons there isnt more progress made since the 1964 Civil Rights Acts was passed. He is a disgrace to all who came and led before him to gain that Bills passing. He is happy with the status quo, keeping a large portion of poor people poor as it gives him a Job and a quasi unvoted for Leadership Position.

Doesnt surprise me Chaka sees him as an interruption, he is to most, but no one dare say that for fear of being shaken down, called out, and labeled.

When he passes, look for renewed leadership and a moving forward of poor people like has never been seen before.

Read the book by Juan Williams, Enough....tells the whole story and more

She needs to fire the assistant.

Its sad when people cant stick to the story and go on their racist ramblings; but in the same breath call other people racist. Hm

I am so glad that Chaka knows whats more important than wasting her time talking to "reverend" jesse jackson. He is and always will be a piece of shit.

Urban Thought    

Why is this news? And could Jesse even handle a woman like Chaka? Doesn't he usually go for those young females who are too naive to know better?
