The U.S. south is “the land of the free, the home 
of genocide,” civil rights icon Rev. Jesse 
Jackson repeatedly said Wednesday in a speech 
that also implied former President Ronald Reagan was a racist.

news outlet Campus Reform provided TheBlaze an 
audio recording of Jackson telling students at 
Furman University that Reagan and former 
presidential candidate Barry Goldwater both sought to sustain segregation.

“Goldwater and Reagan – had they been successful, 
it would have been illegal for blacks and whites 
to play together on a Saturday afternoon,” he 
said. “You couldn’t have had the Carolina 
Panthers behind the cotton curtain playing the 
Atlanta Falcons 
 it would have been illegal.”

Jackson doubled down on his claim, saying 
basketball legend Michael Jordan could have never 
played basketball at the University of North 
Carolina had Reagan and Goldwater had their way.

“Michael Jordan couldn’t have gone to UNC 
would have been ineligible for him to play at 
UNC,” he said. “You couldn’t have had the 
Olympics in Atlanta Georgia. You couldn’t have 
had the Dallas Cowboys in Houston, Texas, you 
couldn’t have had the Super Bowl in New Orleans 
or in Atlanta or in Jacksonville or Miami.”

The civil rights icon also touched on the 
controversy over the Washington Redskin’s name in 
his speech commenting on race.

“How about pictures we see of Indians stabbing 
the cowboys?” he asked. “In reality what happened 
was if If you killed an Indian 
 finally you got 
paid for the scalps of the red skins of the 
and that’s how we got the Washington Redskins football league.”

Jackson’s speech was reportedly met with some 
controversy on campus with several students 
protesting his speech outside and handing anti-Jackson leaflets to individuals.

“It’s a shame that Furman decided to celebrate 
such a historical event with such a divisive 
individual such as Rev. Jackson,” student Lauren 
Cooley, who organized that protest, 
<http://www.campusreform.org/?ID=5209>told Campus Reform.

“He’s been stirring up division for years through 
outlandish anti-Semitic, anti-white, and 
anti-conservative statements,” Cooley added.
