My advice to the Right Reverand Jesse Jackson is to take the Rainbow Coalition and The Reverand Al Sharpton and stage a protest march thru downtown Mexico City. Just like they do here in the States. That way the Mexicam Goverment will realize just how much they offended JJ . But of course I doubt the Mexican Police will look as kindly on it as their counterparts in the States do. But hey it'll give us a reprive from his rhetoric while he's cooling his heels in a Mexican Jail.

Totally absurd accusations. The character is as beloved in Mexico as Mickey Mouse is in America. Get a job Rev.
