Al Sharpton’s Stunning Reminder

Eugene Robinson wrote an interesting editorial on the latest discovery of Al Sharpton and Strom Thurman’s family.  For some reason a lot of people can’t stand Al Sharpton.  I read some of the comments left on the Washington Post page.  I will admit that in the past, Sharpton has supported some issues that I did not agree with, but overall he has done a damn good job in fighting for the rights of people of color in this country.

  1. Al Sharpton is a rabble rousing liar. He’s done little for anyone except himself. If it weren’t for ‘the oppressed’, he’d have to invent them.

    Tell me how he’s helped anybody

  2. He is far from perfect, but he was and still does contribute and care about his people. He may have supported or done things in the past that I didn’t agree with, but I will say that for the most part he has stood up for Civl Rights. It is funny how people are so quick to bash Sharpton and Jackson, but allow people like Limbaugh, O’Reilly, Armstrong Williams and others to say and do things that are far worse
