Jesse Jackson: 'There Is So Much Grief'

7/5/2009 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jesse Jackson, with Al Sharpton by his side, talked very solemnly to our photog last night about the overwhelming reaction to Michael Jackson's death.

BTW -- isn't it odd that Al Sharpton didn't say a word?

I don't think Jesse realizes the Michael Jackson and his kids are actually white.

If you get in to the Memorial for MJ, you can hear the nice long speechs and talks from reverend Al Sharpton and Jesse
Jackson, and there should be lots of other speakers paying tribute too

The worst thing about these two losers/criminals is that the media, TMZ included, give them any kind of press. These two are the worst of the worst, and have set race relations back YEARS!

Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are media ho's. They're always sticking their noses into things that have NOTHING to do with them, appearing like Tweedledee and Tweedledum, spouting B.S. they hope you'll believe they mean. But actually, it's "do as I say, not as I do" with both of them. Cretins.

It is weird that Al Sharpton didn't say anything. He never shuts up especially lately about MJ. He was probably just thinking of more ways to milk money out of MJ.

I can't stand either of these two idiots !! Two ignorant Black men who represent evil in the highest degree, right along there with Joe Jackson. All Jesse and Al want is media attention. Those two azzwipes !!!

These two are AWFUL. They're probably THRILLED at all the attention they're getting since MJ died. But here, they're missing their side-kick Joe. Funny how before MJ died many people, especially "leaders" in the black community were all putting MJ down as a white-wanna-be child molester who "hated" blackness ("look at his kids!"). But now he's dead and "up for even more SALE" (caCHING), these two "Afro-American" leaders stake "ownership". The only thing worse was hearing how someone at the BET Awards said MJ was a "black man" who's talent "WE" shared with "white people." Poor MJ. Still a piece of property and now he can't even make a statement through a spokesperson. MJ must be rolling in his grave....but wait, none of these slimy people have bothered to take care of the man's burial yet.

MJ's music wasn't about black or white. He went to great lengths (in his music anyway) to reach across barriers - not underscore them like these two and some other black celebrities are doing through his death. What a circus!

Yes there is a lot of grief Jesse and Al and of course a lot of money to be made and attention that is there for the taking.
And on a personal level, I hope a number of attests and some people getting some jail time for providing the drugs that led to MJ's demise.
