Boycott Al Sharpton and His Mindless Minions!

Beware of race-haters, bigots, media whores, and hypocrites.

Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are destroying race relations in America. It seems that Sharpton and Jackson believe the first amendment only applies to the black population. Sharpton is a bigot, Jackson has a love-child, and neither of them believes in what their so-called reverend titles would imply. Reverends? Of what? The church of bigotry, hypocrisy, and hatred, maybe? Jackson’s phrase was “himeytown”, Sharpton’s was “white interlopers” and “jewelry merchants”, and Chris Rock’s phrase is “crazy-ass crackers”. Everything is fine and should not be punished if said by a black person. I for one will stand up for their right to say the idiotic things they have said. I may not agree with them, but I will face the fact that they have the right to say what they want. The only “nappy-headed ho” in this whole issue is Sharpton. Sharpton is prostituting himself in the name of racism. What is his motive? It seems Sharpton is playing his race card well on this issue.

This issue with Don Imus means nothing when it comes to the relations between blacks and whites. You WILL get offended in America, get used to it. The only people in this World deserving an apology from Don Imus are the basketball players he was speaking of. These girls at Rutgers are not little pre-schoolers running around on the playground. They are tougher than anyone is giving them credit for. If Imus called one of these girls a “ho” in public they would jump on him and beat the hell out of him or they would stand the higher ground and call him a “crazy-ass cracker”. Either choice would have been justified.

Anyone with a functioning mind could determine from the context of the conversation that Imus was bantering back and forth with another host attempting to be funny. It did not work. Anyone that is paid to talk will eventually run out of intelligent thought at times. This is what I believe happened as the context was basically a bunch of gibberish trying to fill airtime. As a black man stated on one radio show, “the worst thing Imus could be criticized for is speaking Ebonics without certification”. I do not condone what he said, but I do believe that there is no reason why this issue has become a race war with the black population. Black people do not want a race war with white people, but Sharpton and Jackson do. This will keep them in the media spotlight for a while. This is what they do.

If Sharpton wants a race war, he can have one. He just does not realize that this war will not be between blacks and whites; it will be between Americans that believe in the first amendment (Americans of all ethnic backgrounds) and those that only blindly follow their bigoted leader Sharpton. Leaders of the NAACP have spoken out that they do not believe in what Sharpton is doing and that they believe in the first amendment. Many other leaders in the black community have spoken out also that they do not believe this issue is an issue at all. In America, being a capitalist and free society, people vote with their wallets and their feet. If people do not like what a radio host says, they change the channel. Do we need to call for all Americans who believe in the first amendment to boycott all of the spineless, weak-kneed sponsors of MSNBC who pulled out? It makes me sad that these companies are bowing down to Sharpton in shame as if they had just slapped their mothers. Do we need to boycott ANY company who sponsors or condones what Sharpton is doing? I say not just yes, but HELL YES!

I believe any company or individual condoning this man attempting to divide America should be punished. Forget the fact that Sharpton has scared them into submission. Let the numbers speak for themselves. Let these companies decide if they want to appease Sharpton and the other bigots that join with him or suffer from the vast majority of Americans of all backgrounds voting with their wallets. Decide what you think is right and vote accordingly.

The major problem with this whole situation is perception. Al Sharpton is still trying to make all black people think they are still victims in America. I believe race relations would improve if these so-called black leaders would teach black people to stand up for themselves by improving themselves, not by playing the victim and blaming racism for every problem in their lives. Many blacks have stated on the television news and radio shows that they do not have time for this issue as it does not bother them. Why, you ask? Because they are too busy leading their lives, supporting and enjoying their families, and trying to improve themselves by not bogging themselves down in the “victim mentality” that does nothing for black America.

Al & Jessie are jokes. They always have been. Unfortunately, some people think they are for real. If you check their bank accounts and other assets you'll quickly learn the real joke is on those who take them seriously.

Thanks for your honest comments. I too wrote on this subject. I will say it here in reference to your article, Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson are not poster men for ALL Black people. Unfortunately, Don Imus was used as the "example" for some strange reason. Perhaps because his comments were simply too much, too little, too late. I really don't know. I was offended by the remarks he made ONLY because the girls baskteball team did not deserve them. But then, neither did Serne & Venus Williams and the countless others he's ridiculed. Unfortunately, my friend there are double standards at play here. Where do the answers lie? Perhaps time will tell.
