"The fact of the matter is there is frustration because of exclusion," Jackson told a 1999 conference attended by NASCAR chairman, Bill France Jr. "We must now turn that pain to power. We were qualified to play baseball before 1947. We are qualified to race cars now."

NASCAR responded by paying $150,000 to sponsor Jackson's Rainbow-PUSH/Citizenship Education Fund conference in 2001 plus another $100,000 last year. NASCAR anted up even though it cannot sponsor teams. Companies do that. Moreover, Jackson has not demonstrated NASCAR's alleged racism.

Amazing. How does this guy sleep at night? "We must turn this pain into power"? What pain? Where? I can't tell if he's a blatent liar or just nuts--maybe both--but its high time Jackson got investigated for some of this nonsense.
