Never forget who paid dues first

This link comes from probably my favorite writer in the blog game, Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Lost in all the hype surrounding those infamous comments about Sen. Obama's testicles and such is the fact that none of this would have been possible were it not for Rev. Jackson's trailblazing campaigns in '84 and '88.

Not to excuse the good Reverend. But still...context and a knowledge of history is important.

Let's not bury the man just yet. Ok?
