Apparently Jesse Jr. had an affair with a restaurant hostess. Congressmen having affairs is nothing new, and not all that shocking really. But, this woman happens to be white and Jesse Jr., as you may know, is not. Apparently, his wife is aware of the situation and ultimately it is between the two of them.
I am not one to say one word about these types of relationships. Love is love, if you skin tones happen to differ, so what. It isn't anyone else's business as far as I am concerned. But, sadly, I do know that there are plenty of people who don't agree with that.
Many months back I did post on some comments that I read on a blog about a statement made by Eleanor Norton Holmes about Justice Thomas. Her implication was that he was not "black" enough for her tastes. The comments made by liberals went off about Justice Thomas' wife Ginni, who happens to be white. They were none to thrilled about this. The usual slurs were used. "Oreo", "Uncle Tom", "Traitor" and on it went.
So is this true as well for Jesse Jr.? Because logically it should be, right? Just Askin'.
