    He yells a lot.  Other than that I don't pay much attention to him.

    Here's my five reasons why I UTTERLY DETEST the odious man:
    1. He exploits the vulnerable and others who are otherwise powerless for his monetary & career benefit.
    2. He is insincere regarding his "racial" political stand. He is doing this for his own self-aggrandizement.
    3. He is vainglorious to put it mildly.
    4. He loves to play that race card when it is sooo convenient.  Is that right, Al?
    5. Nauseating to the multillionth degree.

    Just one: it seems like wherever he goes, it's all about him. He exploits tragedy as a form of self-promotion.

      Exactly, he is king of self-aggrandizement.

      Sounds like a fun guy at parties. And by "fun guy," I mean "fun guy to pretend to get drunk and vomit all over as a gag."

    I. I don't like Sharpton because he is a poor-old broken-down slave colored boy.

    2. I don't like him because he has very poor taste in suits and ties.

    3. I don't like the dude because he still "konks" his hair.

    4. I don't like him because his grammar is atrocious.

    5. I don't like the man because Obama likes him.

    I don't even know who he is, so he's probably not important enough for me to take the time to read up on when I could be reading about much more interesting things, like East Asian archaeology or the origin of the fart joke.

    1. He is an adult who has an imaginary super friend.

    2. His imaginary super friend is the same super friend of the people who held his people in abject oppression.

    3. Imaginary super friend tells him to tell people the sky is falling.

    4 Every time there is a black person killed by someone other than another black person, he jumps in front of a mic to tell people the sky is falling.

    5. He's crazy enough to think that we should allow him to be the voice of ALL black Americans.

    1. Despite his civil rights contributions in the past, he doesn't seem to be advocating it.

    2. Always complaining but offers few solutions.

    3. Every time he goes on the media, progress for Africans go back another 5 steps.

    4. He doesn't pay his fair share of taxes.

    5. Rather than blame the person who stabbed him. He sues the NYC for failing to 'protect' him. He got $200,000 from the settlement.
