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.

Jesse Jackson Al Sharpton Play video

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

Did You hear the Music playing in the back ground..
Jesse and Al were out to Party..

They grabbed the moment , Jesse is a media whore like Joe.
Al I think sees what THEY look like so he is keeping his mouth shut.
He saw Joe suck up the media sn jesse... Al has learned to shut Up//

TO 1. I don't think Jesse realizes the Michael Jackson and his kids are actually white.

You are right, In fact The whole Black Community fail to See That Fact...
MJ turned His self White.He Only saw White Woman and the Kids are ALL 100% White...

Mike Wanted to Be White.... And He did not care to be around Black people..
Just Look at His Friends... Most of them are White....

These two do more to set race relations back to 20 years ago than anyone besides O Reilly . What phony media whores!
They are both a laughing stock and need to go away.
This is about money they can not make anywhere else.
Ten minutes of fame is over and so is your old ways of life. Stop dragging us down.
No one knows how the Jackson family feels without talking to them
Joe is doing well promoting his record label though. Way to go Joe.
Jermaine is the only person we have heard from that seems genuine. At that, it is apparent that it is still about money as his truthful memorial of his brother was brushed aside.

Lord have mercy on my soul if I have to listen to them go on and on during the MJ memorial service. Are the Jackson's inviting Reverend Jeremiah Wright? I think I will Tivo it so I can later fast forward through the speeches given by these guys...

I'm surprised it took these two media whores this long to pop up and be a part of the circus surrounding Michael's death. They're usually much quicker at being in the middle of things. They both need muzzles.

Why do they let this PUKE of a non human being speak for them? he is a joke! Im sure there must be a more intelligent Black spokesperson that has to speak on the behalf of everyone when something happens. How about Bill Cosby, or James Earl Jones.
