nothing is as black and white as you put it. You're ahead of hands like 10/10 that can raise higher than that in position. Hell, you're on hte + side of a coinflip against AK, AQ, and KQ. You're dominating AJ, KJ, and QJ (unless they hit their over, then you're crippled..) but jacks are better than giving up to any raise higher than 3xbb, and not to mention they'll win on their own without making trips enough to make the call worth it.
