    Florida governor wants apology from Jesse Jackson

    TALLAHASSEE -- A day after civil-rights advocate Jesse Jackson suggested Florida's laws were racist and compared its governor to segregationist George Wallace, Gov. Rick Scott issued a statement calling on him to apologize.

    Here's the release:

    Today, Governor Rick Scott released the following statement in response to remarks from Jesse Jackson who yesterday called Florida “the Selma of our time.†Jackson has also referred to Florida as the “Apartheid State.â€

    Governor Rick Scott said, “Jesse Jackson owes every Floridian an apology for his reckless and divisive comments. It is unfortunate that he would come to Florida to insult Floridians and divide our state at a time when we are striving for unity and healing. Floridians are a strong, resilient people. We are fortunate to live in a great state where all Floridians enjoy opportunities to get a great job and a world-class education.â€

    Jackson spent the night on the floor of the Capitol along with a handful of student protesters in their third week of demonstrations geared to force policymakers to repeal the state's controversial Stand Your Ground law. The Dream Defenders started their sit-in at Scott's office earlier this month after George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the shooting death last year of teen Trayvon Martin in a Sanford gated community.

    But Jackson on Tuesday dialed up the criticism to suggest Florida's justice and voting systems were intentionally designed to disenfranchise blacks.

    And by the way. The black population has been given every opportunity to advance. Every right, plus more than other US citizens. Quit bringing up the history of 50 years ago and encourage your people to get involved in society, not be separate from it. Don't sleep on a floor in protest. Get up and get in the flow of the world.

    Rant over.

    I can see this will be fruitless.

    Question: If you could get rid of Florida or Jesse Jackson, which one would you choose?

    Dr. Drew had a guest on ( during the Zimmerman trial) that said the black culture is suffering from Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome because of the way they have been treated over the past 400years

    He, like Sharpton, is out of touch; living in the past with his mindset. Both Jackson and Sharpton are irrelevant race baiters.
