Listening to Jesse Jackson

The editorial "The Jesse Jackson Dimension," March 27, is the first I've seen in a mainstream journal to assess accurately the message of Mr. Jackson's politics. Only generations of structural and "atmospheric" racism could make the general white public, including many liberals, view him with a special suspicion, until we finally, really, take the time to listen.
