    Re: Is the Rev. Al Sharpton a racist?

    Since we're on the subject of a smarmy racist, have you noticed at times, when he's asked questions, that he responds by turning it around on the questioners?

    Re: Is the Rev. Al Sharpton a racist?

    Re the OP: Of course Sharpton is a racist; there is no other answer but 'Yes' to the poll. The Democrats love racists, and don't even mind running them for office, another reason they're no longer an option as the other wing of the Billionare Boys Club. Obama is also a racist, which is why so many racist blacks and Democrats voted for him; if he weren't, he would never have been electable, at least since 1984, as a Democratic candidate.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: Is the Rev. Al Sharpton a racist?

    Wikipedia: Racism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Racism is the belief that inherent different traits in human racial groups justify discrimination. In the modern English language, the term "racism" is used predominantly as a pejorative epithet. It is applied especially to the practice or advocacy of racial discrimination of a pernicious nature (i.e., which harms particular groups of people), and which is often justified by recourse to racial stereotyping or pseudo-science. Racism is popularly associated with various activities that are illegal or commonly considered harmful, such as extremism, hatred, xenophobia, (malignant or forced) exploitation, separatism, racial supremacy, mass murder (for the purpose of genocide), genocide denial, vigilantism (hate crimes, terrorism), etc.
    Dictionary.com: Racism | Define Racism at Dictionary.com

    1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

    2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.

    3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

    Based on the definitions, I cannot call him a racist. He is, like many politicians and posters here, using race based arguments and playing the race card. A simple look at the Martin/Zimmerman case and the threads here will show you that most people do this to an extent, including some here calling Sharpton a racist. This however is not an excuse, we should condemn any one doing this crap, I just don't think it is helpful to single any one person out. AS is usually the case with things like this, the people making the loudest arguments against Sharpton are doing the exact same thing.

    Then it all needs to stop. If people are going to accuse others along the lines of racism, then all must stop, from Al to Imus.

    I am so sick of people doing the same thing while some are condemned and some aren't.

    That would make him a racialist.

    I have said it needs to stop alot. You can do a nice search and see how many times I have accused any one of being racist. Probably alot fewer than you in fact.

    I call out what I think is obvious. Not try to make mountains out of molehills like Al or the NAACP.

    For example there was this one incident with the NAACP that thought an audio birthday card with "black hole" in its space theme was racist. They thought it was "black whore," even though it wasn't.

    And we see the "when I do it it is different" argument.

    Some are condemned and some aren't... because some are right. Some allegations of racism are accurate, and some are unfounded. Of course the unfounded ones should be condemned and the accurate ones shouldn't!

    How can you dismiss every instance where someone talks about race. There are real issues surrounding race and discrimination that need to be addressed. You can't just call anyone who brings these issues up racist to dismiss their legitimate grievances.
