Jesse Jackson led a pro-Bingo march in Montgomery, Alabama over the weekend. Because when you think of civil and voting rights and economic justice, you think Bingo:

The Rev. Jesse Jackson led a march of about 200 people down Dexter Avenue to the Alabama Capitol to rally supporting bingo jobs in the state.

Jackson said the bingo debate ongoing in Alabama is a voting rights issue and a matter of economic justice. Counties voted for bingo, Jackson said, and the vote should be respected.

It’s a shame that the rights movement seems to have made no progress since Selma, isn’t is?

This coming weekend Jackson plans to lead a “Government-Funded Yahtzee Jobs NOW!” rally in Memphis.

At least the children of Montgomery managed to learn a valuable lesson about what makes America great — Bingo!


If you want to vote so bad, just call ACORN, kid. Maybe you already have voted.


“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all people have a right to make-work Bingo jobs.’ I have a dream that Bingo Caller’s will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their balls. I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a Bingo table of brotherhood, join hands and sing in harmony, ‘Thank God almighty we are free to fleece the taxpayers at last!’”

    If The Most Highly Reverend Jesse had not been there to soak his shirt in King’s blood,someone else would have stepped in to assume the mantle of “Bingo Caller to the Minorities”.
