Former U.S. Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. faces four years in prison for absconding with $750,000 in election campaign funds [“Jesse Jackson Jr., wife charged in federal cases,” News, Feb. 16].

Surely if this scion of the noted civil-rights family had been a Wall Street banker who bilked multibillions from the public, he’d be untainted and uncharged.

Which proves conclusively that black people in America will never be free until they learn to steal big.
