He could speak out on a lot of crimes including black on white or black on black crimes. It would be nice if he spoke up on black on black crime because that is a disturbing statistic. I always assumed black people had more to fear from whites than the reverse. But then, maybe I'm one of those race traitors? I thank god that my parents were not race obsessed and I didn't learn hatred when I was a child. It's an awful disease.
Sharpton is a pandering asshole. I don't care what he speaks out on, and I don't care if you're a "race traitor" or not (whatever that even means). My point, which you continue to miss, is only that Sharpton does not speak out on black on black crime.
And also that he's an asshole, so I guess I actually have two points.
1. Sharpton does not speak out on black on black crime.
2. Sharpton is an asshole.
I now extend my previous offer. I will pay $5 to anyone who can find five distinct instances of Sharpton speaking out on black on black crime, OR $5 to anyone who can prove Sharpton isn't an asshole.
