.. he is the Reverend E. W. Jackson . He is a well – known figure in Virginia ‘ s Black community . The reason many may not have heard of him ? He is a Republican , and a very conservative one at that . Listen to the audio of an appearance at a radio station , and follow the campaign , and judge for yourself …

.. EW Jackson is running for Lt. Governor of Virginia and as an African-American Republican, he has a unique insight and message for President Obama with regard to his recent comments about the George Zimmerman murder trial.  Jackson appeared on “Mornings on the Mall” on WMAL in Washington DC this morning with me and co-host Brian Wilson.

The host pointed out the president’s remarks from Friday and asked him, “The president says he could have been Trayvon, Rev. Jackson, could you have been Trayvon?”

“The president racialized it, making it about a black man, making it about being African-American, making it about a racial confrontation.  I don’t think it was racial at all.  I prefer to think of it this way – any young American could have been in the same situation.  You know, young people have a lot of swagger – they’re part of this whole pop culture, and they don’t like being challenged.  Any young person.”
