“African Americans Against Exploitation? We have your table for four ready…”
Notes from Atlanta directs us to this story of, well, publicity seekers seeking publicity:
African Americans Against Exploitation, a newly formed group that includes a former head of the Kentucky Republican Party, filed the lawsuit in Superior Court on Nov. 12. The suit claims Jackson is calling himself a Black leader without permission from the country’s millions of Black citizens. The suit also was filed on behalf of the Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny.
James Stern, who heads the National Association of Cosmetologists, said he became involved in the suit after Jackson tried to organize a boycott of the movie “Barbershop” because parts of it were disrespectful to Black icons Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr.
I wonder if this guy knows Disco Mike Taylor?
