    If I didn't know what a lowlife shakedown artist Jackson was, I'd say his complaint had some merit. But my guess is that, like many other companies that he has bullied, he's making some backdoor deals with Adidas...Jesse don't do nothing for free. Those threatened boycotts of Coca-Cola and Toyota and other companies only resulted in deals to line Jesse's pockets and those of his cronies...the black community as a whole was not helped. Trust me. Read the book "Shakedown" and you'll see. I read parts of it from a friend of mine. "Reverend" Jackson is one of the most self-promoting, self-serving dirtballs who ever lived.

    Me three. I actually thought these would be good for Lindsey Lohan because guaranteed she'll be needing them in the future.

    PREACH! Jesse Jackson hasn't been "for the people" since the 70's (and some argue the 60's). He's always sold himself to the highest bidder, even helped his mistress get a few high-paying gigs too. Fucker.

    The other self-and-media appointed spokesman for the black community, Al Sharpton has more integrity in his knuckle than Jesse Jackson has in his entire being. And I'm not even an Al Sharpton fan.

    I can't STAND Jackson. He showed up at my maternal grandma's church for a fundraiser back in the 80s, and the women (including Grandma, unfortunately), made complete asses of themselves trying to get next to him. And he sopped that shit up like a Bisquick biscuit on a bowl of chicken gravy! He LOVED every minute of it. I was also introduced to his wife at a demonstration during the Atlanta child murders. God, I had just started high school I think. Anyway, I thought she was gorgeous and classy. My grandma's then-councilperson introduced us. I was very impressed by her. My heart broke for her when the mistress went public with the baby.

    But this all speaks to Jesse's character, or lack thereof. Adidas got played. And trust me, Jesse will get some coin out of this, and some favors for the cronies and acolytes in his inner circle!!!

    I would be tempted to slap the snot of anyone I saw wearing that crap.

    Jesse Jackson is a sorry ass excuse for a human being. So is his son.

    Why do I envision you cursing your sons out if they even so much showed a picture of these shoes to you asking for you to buy them?

    My brother had a pair of convict pyjamas when we were kids (the same ones Angus Young wears in the video for "Jailbreak"). These shoes would have finished off the outfit perfectly.

    Same here. I'm deeply offended that Adidas would create a shoe that reminds people like us of such a dark and terrible time in our lives. It's really insensitive and upsetting.
