Jesse Jackson using a racial slur in the same tirade he made his crude comment about Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

"We want to give our ancestors a present: dignity over degradation," Jackson said at a Monday news conference, contending that the N-word is "unprotected" by free-speech issues. (The N, however, is, so keep on with your sapphic selves, Ashley and Spencer!) read more
