E.W. Jackson Not Pleased with President Obama Calling Himself “Kenyan-American”


    I’m kinda curious, was E.W. Jackson angry at President Reagan when he spoke in Ireland in 1984 and said, “I’m certainly proud to be part of that great Irish American tradition…My roots in Ballyporeen, County Tipperary, are little different than millions of other Americans who find their roots in towns and counties all over the Isle of Erin?” Did Jackson think that Reagan was a “divider” not a “uniter?” Was he offended at Reagan’s frequent references to being Irish-American? Somehow, I doubt it.
