Is Al Sharpton a Racist?
Good or Bad?
Well I think the answer to this is no, why? Because he will accept money from anybody regardless of color.
The question is though: does he promote racism? To that the answer has to be yes, why? Because by appeasing and provoking racism makes him rich.
So what is this all about?
Once again he has got himself involved in a tragic case of mis justice and again it involves the shooting of an African American boy.
In this case, yes the boy was shot in circumstances that are a little dubious to say the least but this is an injustice what ever the boys color was. If the man Zimmerman had been a police officer instead of a citizen’s watch, he would have had to give up his weapon and be under suspension until an investigation was complete. This is regardless of the race of the victim. Zimmerman is now in hiding and still in possession of his weapon. This is wrong.
How ever, now that Al Sharpton has got involved it has all become a matter of race. This means that if in all probability, Zimmerman’s lawyers can convince a court that he is not a racist, he could receive a not guilty verdict. Before the racist card was played, he would have had to convince a court of the legality of his actions, something that would have been, in my opinion, much harder.
So what of Reverend Al Sharpton? A reverend of what? Which religion?
Sharpton was born in New York in 1954 and ordained a Pentecostal Minister at age 9. Then he became a Baptist Minister in 1994.
He claims to be a Human Rights activist but does not seem concerned for all the human rights. For instance he has been critical of Jews, whites and Mormonism, as if these groups do not have rights.
He will too readily jump on any band wagon that will take him. Once on board he promotes press on the abuse of the African American. This does not help any cause, it just serves to promote racism and that is what he wants. Without racism he would just be a Minister without a church or congregation. He needs racism to make his fortune and if he really felt concern for his country he would not have had to face Inland Revenue claims that he owed them millions of dollars over the years. Allegations that he claims, of course, were politically activated, why? Because he was black?
Yes, racism does still exist in the United States but this is because people like Al Sharpton keep it alive. If he really was concerned about human rights he should try and ensure that ALL laws are correctly enforced against all equally, not just pick the ones he can make money from because of his race.
Al Sharpton has faced criticism before but claims that this just shows that he must be doing a good job. He is obviously as delusional as he hopes his followers will be.
So Al Sharpton is not guilty of being a racist but he is guilty of something. He certainly is not the shining role model for young African Americans, that he claims to be, merely someone else who feeds off of their misery.
