Jesse Jackson's Getting Press Over on Christopher Street

Jesse Jackson's Getting Press Over on Christopher Street

The other night at my favorite unassuming Village bar, Pieces, the Too Ugly For TV revue contained a rousing episode of a game show called "Are You More Racist Than Jesse Jackson?" Drag queens Vodka Stinger and Tallulah DeBayous asked audience members to use terms like "jungle bunny" in a sentence and then the crowd decided if they were more offensive than Jesse. Most of them weren't. Later in the evening, Vodka blew a fuse and started screaming at an African American patron, who was promptly persuaded to get the fuck out. But THAT wasn't racist. "He's just a horrible skank," explained Vodka, elegantly.
