Title: Farrakhan and Jackson
: Daily News of Los Angeles
Date: July 1, 1984
About this cartoon: The Rev. Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam made repeated headlines for his outrageous and inflammatory diatribes against Jews, whites, the media and others. His friend and mentor, Jesse Jackson, refused to say a word against Farrakhan until pressured to do so in order to be allowed to speak at the Democratic National Convention.
Noteworthy: In case you can't read the small type, the word "twiddle" appears next to Jackson, and the paper in panel 5 reads, "How badly do you want to address the Dem.'s convention?" This was a well-received cartoon.
