Al Sharpton once more opens mouth and inserts foot…


I’m just trying to figure out how it is okay for Al Sharpton to denounce an entire religious community based on any history of that religion. In the logic he is using to attack the Mormon faith is similar to attacking the Catholic faith for the Inquisition. His attacking of the choice of religion for Mitt Romney is way out of bounds and questioning the entire Mormon religion of not truly believing in God is wrong. Then again this is the Reverend Al Sharpton and he comes out with his collar on and his bible prominently displayed so that makes it okay to accuse an entire people of being Godless?

I’m just curious how it is okay for Sharpton to say something so stupid and it passes as just Al being Al and yet Don Imus was canned for uttering racist remarks concerning the Rutgers Girl Basketball Team? Both of them made it clear in their individual statements that they are clearly racist. And yet the main stream media flocks to Reverend Sharpton every single time there is a racial issue? For that matter who in the African American community made this man the spokesman for all African Americans?

Romney and Sharpton Clash Over Mormonism

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and civil rights activist Al Sharpton traded angry, racially charged accusations yesterday, with Romney alleging that Sharpton had uttered "bigoted" comments about Mormonism.

On the campaign trail in Iowa, Romney was asked about Sharpton's comment during a debate Monday that "those of us who believe in God" will defeat Romney. The former Massachusetts governor told reporters that such a comment "shows that bigotry still exists in some corners."

Sharpton angrily denied Romney's charge in a telephone interview yesterday, and he accused Romney of stoking a verbal war with him to gain support among conservatives.
Sharpton said his comments have been taken out of their original context -- a debate about religion with journalist Christopher Hitchens, who Sharpton said had suggested that Mormonism once advocated segregation.

Who in the media is going to take up the charge to demand that Sharpton be fired from his congregation and radio show? Anybody out there in the press or on the radio feel free to volunteer for this politically correct mission. We can’t have a man that is the self declared voice of all African Americans demanding the firing of Don Imus one week and the next week he is calling the people of the Mormon faith infidels and heathens. Is there anyone out there in the main stream media willing to take the Reverend Al Sharpton down off of his pulpit?

We are a nation of many cultures, races, religions and classes. It is what it is. It is far too easy to point out the obvious fact that Al Sharpton is a racist bigot because that is what pays his mortgage and puts food on his table. Selling the hate message and convincing people that they are still oppressed puts the butter on his bread.

Much like the days of old in Northern Ireland where Protestant and Catholic would rather kill one another than tolerate the existence of the other it gets old fast. There is only the matter of time and future generations to wipe out the instilled hatred message of people like Sharpton that refuse to give up the fight that is almost extinct in America. Racism in America isn’t dead but this is 2007 and not 1967.

The main stream media needs to stop being so damn lazy and instead of knocking on Al Sharptons door every time there is a race issue they should seek out the local community leaders and not the ambulance chaser that the Reverend truly is.

I sent the following the Rev. AL today.

To: Rev. Al Sharpton, National Action Network and Media Matters.org

The comedian, DL Hughley recently made the following comments on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno:

"There were some nappy headed women on the team and those are some of the ugliest women I have ever seen in my life.” DL HUGHLEY on Jay Leno.

Where is the outcry from mainstream media, the African American community, or all these people that called for Imus' head on a platter?

The Rutgers Women's Basketball team members are beautiful! When the world gave them an opportunity to rage and unleash a fury toward Imus, they didn't. That's beautiful. When they had the eyes of the world on them, the exhibited grace and dignity. That's beautiful. When they had every reason and opportunity to malign and attack Imus, they forgave him. That's beautiful. D.L. Hughley's latest venture was canceled so he tried to piggyback on a painful period in our history by attempting to get a laugh on the cheap and THAT. WAS. UGLY!

WhatAboutOurDaughters.org is dedicated to combating negative portrayals of African American Women in popular culture. Apparently after Studio 60 went belly-up, DL landed at BET, the bastion of black empowerment ( NOT!). His new show on BET is called S.O.B., a hidden camera reality show. Ask Viacom, the owner of BET, if this is the kind of message it wants to send to African American women and girls. What about our daughters? Or are you only concerned when the degradation of Black women comes from outside the community?

Way to go Gem! I completely agree with your message and by the way you and your blog are right on target.

Defending young woman that are being labeled and attacked by the music industry that consistently puts out the message against young woman is right up my alley. It's time for them to clean up their act and their business.
