I still can’t believe that anyone takes Al Sharpton seriously when he breaks out the race card.
He is the hypocrite of all time. And a horse’s ass.
He should first apologize for all the racist remarks that he has made over the years, then be fired from what ever job he has, then maybe, we can take him seriously.
Me, I rarely listen to what he, or his ilk say in regards to race relations, or the supposed insults that are sent in their direction that didn’t come from their own race. How about adressing that one?
Al Sharpton is a bigoted piece of human excrement.
The dumbing down of presidential candidates is complete.

“If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house.”
Those were the immortal words of the Rev. Al Sharpton during the Crown Heights crisis in New York City in 1991. A car driven by a Hasidic Jew had run over a black child in the Brooklyn neighborhood, prompting black-Jewish tensions that eventually spilled over into antisemitic riots. Sharpton’s contribution to civic peace was statements like the above, together with such classic anti-Jewish smears as: “Talk about how Oppenheimer in South Africa sends diamonds straight to Tel Aviv and deals with the diamond merchants right here in Crown Heights.”

In condemning radio show host Don Imus’ use of the term “nappy headed hos” to describe African-American basketball players, Al Sharpton said, “What is any possible reason you could feel that this type of statement should be forgiven and overlooked?” Sharpton also said that Imus’ show should be terminated from CBS and MSNBC. These are indeed questions that should be asked about Sharpton himself, and the Al Sharpton Show. Al Sharpton has as much right to talk about racial and ethnic tolerance as former Klan leader David Duke.
When Don Imus sought absolution for his characteristic display of poor taste, he bent his knee to Pope Al Sharpton. How is it that Al Sharpton has become the arbiter elegantiae for matters pertaining to race and etiquette? Though he is accorded an absurdly respected role in the Democratic Party by politicians such as Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, he is easily one of the most vile men active in American public life.
August 1991 Riot in Brooklyn, New York
Early one evening during the riot in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn in August 1991, I stopped in at the 71st precinct station and chatted briefly with Captain Mescolotto, an executive officer who had been called back from vacation to help deal with the mayhem in the area. We spoke as the riot’s third day was turning into its fourth night.
