Eddie Murphy as Jesse Jackson in this heartfelt plea for forgiveness. haha!

Hymietown Remarks:

Reverend Jesse Jackson referred to Jews as "Hymies" and to New York City as "Hymietown" in January 1984 during a conversation with Washington Post reporter Milton Coleman. Jackson at first denied the remarks, then accused Jews of conspiring to defeat him. When he finally did acknowledge that it was wrong to use the term, he said he did so in private to a reporter. Finally, Jackson apologized during a speech before national Jewish leaders in a Manchester, New Hampshire synagogue, but continuing suspicions have led to an enduring split between Jackson and many Jews.


I was your one and only/
Til I read the news/
Now I'm sad and lonely/
Since I put down the Jews/
We have so much in common/
Cause we both been so oppressed/
We both have big noses/
And gold chains on our chests/
I wanna say please now/


Don't let me down/
I'm begging you please/
Don't let me down/
I'm down on my knees well, well, well/
Don't let me down Hymietown/
Hymietown well, well/
