Jackson, Allred:

Mel Gibson is Hate-Filled

7/1/2010 4:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Reverend Jesse Jackson claims Mel Gibson's racist rant reveals he has a "fundamental character flaw" ... and says the actor truly "needs help."

TMZ just spoke to Rev. Jackson, who said, "Mel Gibson's outburst demonstrates once again that we are far from a society that is 'beyond race and racism.' His penchants for anti-Semitic and racist diatribes reveal the actor's fundamental character flaw."

Jackson adds, "He needs help. But as a society we must redouble our efforts to combat racism and eradicate racial inequalities wherever they may exist."

And Gloria Allred has just weighed in, calling the statements "the worst kind of racism and sexism.  They clearly demonstrate a woman hating temperament which, in my opinion, is dangerous to women."

Reverend Al Sharpton's National Action Network is also weighing in ... telling TMZ, "The use of the "N" word and calling women denigrating terms combined with Gibson being accused of anti-semitism makes us wonder whether he is an outright bigot. We intend to aggressively look into this matter."

Jackson is a racist too. He is basically the definition of reverse racism.

the whole purpose of saying nasty, mean, hurtful things when you are angry is to hurt and shock the person it is directed at. we should not base a judgment on a persons character on how they act at their most emotional moments in personal relationships.

when i fight with my mate, it gets mean and dirty and hateful with all sorts of un-pc things said. it used to be that a couples most vulnerable private moments were private.

Racism is Racism, there is no reverse racism. Jesse Jackson is an avowed racist.

Yeah Mel Gibson is a freaking racist idiot but Geez... Jesse Jackson has as much credibility as Tiger Woods would have preaching monogamy.

"Mel Gibson's outburst demonstrates once again that we are far from a society that is 'beyond race and racism.'

So now Mel Gibson speaks for society as a whole. Yet another intelligent line from Jackson.

Gloria Allred is laying the groundwork for next weeks press conference announcing her new client, Oksana Grigorieva.

If any women feels even remotely slighted, Gloria will fight for them tooth and nail (in front of as many cameras as possible).

She really lost a lot of credibility whilst representing Tigers porn star sperm repository. I mean, if you set yourself up to be the town pump, it's not really fair to seek recompense after you no longer like it.

Well, Jackson has been recorded on tape using the "N-word". I guess that makes him a racist, also.

The only thing Mel Gibson is guilty of is being an Australian male.

Since that's what the public and his Jewish employers paid him for, it's a little too late to scream 'buyer's remorse'.

Mel Gibson is not full of hate, he just needs a new angry vocabulary....it was the time he was raised those were the most awful words you could call someone.....think it pre dates the F word. But he sure is hurting As for the woman.....God help that kid....she is a gold digger and as we know all gold diggers have picks.....rarely do they pick their own nose!

Is Jackson more racist (pro-black) than Alred is sexist (pro-woman)?

How funny that someone (TMZ) would select to run their comments against a (frustrated) man (Gibson) who went on a poorly worded tirade against his Russian fling. Could I forgive Mel? Absolutely! Could I forgive Jackson or Alred? No way - s*** both of them in my opinion!
