Rev. Jesse Jackson

In 1984, Rev. Jesse Jackson was quoted by Washington Post reporter Milton Coleman as referring to New York City as "hymietown." The term hymie is an derogatory word for a Jewish person. At first, Jackson denied making the remark but later apologized to Jewish leaders. Lance Murphey, Reuters
