    Re: Al Sharpton

    Sharpton is very significant as the perfect symbol of uppity black race hustlers to right wingers, which allows them to discredit any cause with his involvement. Poor black people with an issue they are trying to bring to the public's attention appreciate that he publicizes their causes. (even though his involvement hurts their credibility as much as it helps create attention) To everyone else he is insignificant.

    My vote goes for "someone I'm sick of hearing about from EVERYBODY."

    The people whose lives he ruined don't think he's insignificant.

    Re: Al Sharpton

    I don't know what is in Al Sharpton's heart and soul or what his intentions might be. I can only judge him on what he says and how he conducts himself. It is hard not to brand him a hypocrite when he picks and chooses only the high publicity events to 'champion' and only the ones in which a white person can be 'demonized'. It is hard to justify the racist, sexist, homophobic language he uses and think that he is not being deliberately divisive. For somebody with "The Rev." before his name, he certainly is no positive influence on the Christian community. And he is given pretty much a 100% pass by the folks on his side of the aisle when a person on the right would be verbally and if possibly physically destroyed for using the same language.

    That is entirely Al Sharpton's own doing, purposefully.

    People should stop giving him credibility. Most liberals don't think much of him either. His involvement in a cause does not result in all liberals supporting it. That is a right wing lie.

    Re: Al Sharpton

    I respect him only in the sense that he understands how race actually works and he's learned how to make money off those realities from big business.

    He's not an "activist" he's a professional mugger.

    Um, I never mentioned liberals, did it? I mentioned the people whose lives he ruined. How did that become about liberals and right wingers?
