    Decorum (and forum rules,) prevent me from saying what Al Sharpton is.

    You know what he is. I know what he is. I suppose it doesn't need saying after all.

    It's GREAT to be me. --- "45% liberal/55% conservative"

    A person who exploits what he can for his own self interest? He views people as suckers just like Hannity, Limbaugh and all the others and makes a fine profit doing so. Capitalism at its finest.

    Re: Al Sharpton

    He is an activist that has done some good things for the African American community but also damaged that community from time to time when he choose bad causes to support. It seems he also profited from his image and his stature among African Americans something that has not damaged the fight itself but it has damaged his role and stature in that fight against racism. All in all it has made him less important or influential IMO.

    Difference is that Hannity and Rush actually believe their crap... I don't think Sharpton does and that makes him worse.

    Yep, this about sums it up.

    It is amusing what a boogeyman he is to most right wingers, yet those same right wing clowns tend to hold race baiters like Limbaugh and Donald Trump in high regard.

    Definitely A person who exploits what he can for his own self interest. He is a media Mutt

    did he care about race relations at one time? probably
    does he still? maybe
    do they REALLY matter to him? IMO not unless he can get fame and attention from them
