Jesse Jackson Caught Bad Mouthing Obama
Jesse Jackson Apologizes to Barack Obama for Crude Remarks

The remarks came during a discussion with a fellow guest on Fox News about Obama's habit of talking to black audiences about taking responsibility for their families, often focusing on the role of fathers. They were picked up by a microphone Jackson says he did not know was open.

Jackson said the broader context of the conversation was that Obama came off as "speaking down to black people." He said "the moral message must be a broader message" that includes policies to fix structural problems in education and other areas.

He described his own "sound bite" as "crude and hurtful" and said he immediately called the Obama campaign to apologize. He said he doesn't want the remark to be used to "thwart" their relationship. "I support him unequivocally," he said.

The Obama campaign had no immediate comment on the incident. Obama will be speaking to a black audience Monday night at the 99th annual NAACP convention in Cincinnati.
