Jesse Jackson was in Sears. He was there to protest the fact that most of the washing machines were white.
So the clerk called the store manager, who asked, "What's the problem here, Reverend?"
Jesse pointed at the machines and loudly bemoaned the fact that most of them were white.
The manager replied, "Well, Reverend, it's true that most of the washing machines are white, but if you'll open the lids, you'll see that all the agitators are black."
