There's Been a Load of Compromisin' on the Road to My Horizon

“There are those who argue that the right to privacy is of a higher order than the right to life. That was the premise of slavery. You could not protest the existence or treatment of slaves on the plantation because that was private and therefore out of your right to be concerned. Don’t let the pro-choicers convince you that a fetus isn’t a human being. That’s how the whites dehumanized us ... The first step was to distort the image of us as human beings in order to justify what they wanted to do – and not even feel they’d done anything wrong.”

That’s what the Rev. Jesse Jackson believed before he decided years ago to seek the Democrat nomination for president.
