Back in spotlight, Sharpton seizes the moment

Sharpton was there to help Twanna Brawley 25 years ago and is still at it. Google Twanna Brawley and see where these people are today. All the players should have gone to jail including Sharpton.

Judeye - "there was very little roots in Ferguson" - WOW!!! what I saw with my own eyes was criminals smashing store windows, stealing inventory, burning buildings and burning and turning over police cars. If I owned one of those businesses I would have been standing behind the counter with an A -47, fully loaded with my finger on the trigger. I think law enforcement was negligent for not protecting that property. Sharpton and his goofy followers should be arrested for promoting riots and civil unrest.

No matter what his motives may be, Al sharpton has helped to bring many of the issues of the Afro American community to the forefront.

He is outspoken on the issues of racism. something that too many want to close their eyes and minds to.

Phil I have no idea where you get your info. there was very little riots in Fergurson especially when you consider just how many people were there and how long these protests have continued.

Unless you are referring to the group of white racists who met the group who were walking to the capital of the state with Confederate signs and racist slogans and shouts of hate directed at the group.

Make NO mistake..Racism is alive and is thriving in our Country. To pretend it is not is to continue to allow it to persist and grow.

We should be thinking of ways to reduce the racism rather than pretending it is all made up by one man

The American people are being duped into thinking this is a civil rights issue. I do't care if you are black or white blue or green. The same laws apply to everyone. If you steal a box of cigars you are guilty of a felony. If you punch an officer in the face you can expect punishment. If you walk down the center of the street and refuse to obey an officer you are guilty again. If an officer points a gun at you and tells you to stop you had better stop. What we are seeing from Sharpton and that phones in the White House is an effort to stir up the pot. If Brown were white he would have been just as guilty and deserving of the same fate. The riots we are seeing set a precedent making it difficult for a police officer to do his job. America needs a true leader. The civil rights crap has gone too far.

Sharpton and Jackson make a handsome living from promoting civil rights. In the persuit of their objectives they have proven to be a devisive force separating the blacks and whites like they have not been divided since the 1960's. A good example might be the riots evolving from the Brown incident in Ferguson. Sharpton chose to ignore the facts and promote violence throughout the country. I wonder how many Americans were impressed or sympathetic to the black cause when so many of their own race were looting stores, burning buildings and destroying commerce in Ferguson. Did you see Sharpton do anything to heal the wounds? He is in fact a devisive force - but he does make a good living.
