What Do You think Martin Luther King would say about the advancement of black people?

Check out their candid responses below- do you agree?



Civil rights leaders are human too but it’s surprising to hear Rainbow PUSH Coalition founder Jesse Jackson is alleged to owe almost $12,000 in child support. Karin Stanford, the mother of Jackson’s 12-year-old daughter Ashley claims Jackson did not pay child support to the tune of $11,694.50.


The Enquirer reports:

After admitting paternity, the former Democratic presidential hopeful paid court-ordered support and regularly visited Ashley at Stanford’s Cali­fornia home for the past decade.

But according to the court documents, Jackson – who’s remained married to wife Jackie – failed to pay support from De­cember 2010 until August 2011, including minimal monthly fees of $400.

“Karin has tried so many times to work with Jesse on their financial agreement,” a source told The ENQUIRER. “But he was only paying when he felt like it, so she’s taking him to court.”


During his appearance on today’s live episode of “The Wendy Williams Show” Jackson denied owing any child support.
