How about this, five times on his show I've heard him say "black-on-black violence is disgusting".

He is abrasive because he doesn't play by the rules and makes us look at things we don't want to look at. How long did African Americans try the subtle method of trying to be accepted, how has that turned out?
We have FOX news to scream about issues threatening whites.
A race traitor in this case would be a Caucasian who becomes suspect because he supports the cause of another race. I do it because I would like to see the issue of race disappear.
I want to hear from the expert crime analyst, George Zimmerman, exactly what made Trayvon so suspicious looking when he was legitimately on that property.

What is the purpose you see Al Sharpton as serving?

I did not suggest he go away. I said he was an asshole. Why do you think I am in favour of having all assholes sent away?

I would not describe Sharpton as abrasive. I described him as an asshole. He's an asshole because he's a liar and a self-aggrandizer at the expense of those he claims to champion. He does far more harm to the black community than good. I don't know why you think this has anything to do with blacks trying to be accepted through subtle means. I wouldn't call Malcolm X an asshole, and he was certainly not subtle. But Malcolm X wasn't riling people up in order to fill his own pockets with cash and donuts, he was doing it because it was a cause he believed in.

I don't watch Fox news.

I don't think George Zimmerman is making any statements right now. I know you want him to go to trial and that's fine, but here in America we have these things added on to the Constitution, that apply even in Florida, called the Bill of Rights. One of those rights, under the fifth Amendment, ensures that Mr. Zimmerman cannot be compelled to make any statement, no matter how much you want him to.

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.

Bumping. Offer is still open.

Nobody can just like nobody can speak for the white community. That is because they are both made up of people with different beliefs and interests and wants. You know, blacks are people, right, and not just a concept important to hand wringing white liberals. Anyway, Sharpton speaks for those who throw in with him, and for himself. Nothing more.

I know the statistics I've seen on being black in America. It seems like everything that is important to a person's life and well being has declined for them, even if they are a diverse group with different interests and beliefs, they seem to share common elements of misery and disadvantage. A bit of a coincidence for a diverse group, eh? Anyone who tries to fix the situation has an agenda, anyone who tries to perpetuate it can declare racism is ended and you have to then prove to them why black Americans aren't the same as anyone else. Well, African Americans should be the same but somehow they are not the same. I suppose that is looking down my nose at them somehow.
