Al Sharpton and Sheila Jackson Lee Translate Racial Code


This whole "Differ with Barack Obama and You're a Racist" thing is getting old. Take for example Texas Democrat congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. Sheila has already made it known that disagreeing with the first black president instantly makes you a racist. Besides being at odds with Barack, more recently Jackson Lee has also declared racist any mention -- by a white candidate, that is -- of blue-collar work or, for that matter, any-color food stamps. Thankfully, food stamps no longer come in a multicolored booklet that Sheila can scrutinize for racial undertones. Even so, according to the ...

Sheila Jackson Lee on Friday accused Newt Gingrich of using racial “code words” in calling President Barack Obama the “food stamp president” and saying schools ought to hire children to do janitorial work. The Texas congresswoman’s comments came in response to a question about remarks she made on the House floor Wednesday, when she said there are “candidates like Newt Gingrich who want to throw fuel and matches and fire to develop sort of an explosiveness in this country” and there are “underlying suggestions” to calling ...

CONGRESSWOMAN SHEILA JACKSON LEE ANNOUNCES $376,250 GRANT FUNDING AWARDED BY NATIONAL EYE INSTITUTE TO UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON FOR TOLL-LIKE RECEPTOR AND DRY EYE INFLAMMATION AND INFECTION PROJECT

Research such as University of Houston’s Toll-Like Receptor and Dry Eye Inflammation and Infection Project help the nation to come up with solutions to this common, chronic problem,” said Congresswoman Jackson Lee. “I congratulate the researchers – faculty, students, cli
STATEMENT OF CONGRESSWOMAN SHEILA JACKSON LEE IN RESPONSE TO VERDICT IN TRAYVON MARTIN MURDER TRIAL
Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, a senior member of the House Judiciary and Homeland Security Committee, released the following statement today:   “Today was a questionable day as it relates to the life of a young child. America’s justice system is often viewed as coddling and protecting our children, the most vulnerable members of our society. As someone who has devoted much of my public life to advocating for the protection of children, whether from gun violence, bullying at school and in cyberspace, drugs, and unhealthy foodstuffs, I am dismayed that the Florida judicial system did not recognize and value the life of young Trayvon Martin. Trayvon’s family and friends missed him on the day he was killed and they still miss him today. They are right to wonder why others seemed to attach so little value to his life.   “The federal government stands to serve justice in cases where there is much doubt as to whether justice was done by the local authorities.

Delivering the best health care is tremendously important to us, and with this grant, we will be able to give even better opportunities to our communities.
