Jesse Jackson: ‘Keep Bingo Alive!”


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!'”
