"These statements uttered by Robertson are more offensive than the bus driver in Montgomery, Alabama, more than 59 years ago," Jackson said in a statement obtained by ABC News
. "At least the bus driver, who ordered Rosa Parks to surrender her seat
to a white person, was following state law. Robertson's statements were
uttered freely and openly without cover of the law, within a context of
what he seemed to believe was 'white privilege,'" the statement added.
