MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - The Rev. Al Sharpton and Wal-Mart CEO Lee Scott became unlikely allies Tuesday in their call to revive immigration legislation, in speeches before the nation's largest Hispanic civil rights organization. "Congress needs to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill now," said Scott, who heads the world's largest retailer.

The Rev Al Sharpton is a self proclaimed minister and he does what is best for Al Sharpton...he would like to set himself up to be a Martin Luther King, but he will never be close...He makes certain he has a job, regardless of the cost to the people, he is a person who keeps segragation going, for without it, he wouldn't have a job...without the illegals, he wouldn't have a job...Sharpton has gone against what America Stands for, and in my book is a very evil man. He's that guy that shows up to protest that a black person has been shot by white police officers, even though the person they shot was a repeated offender and had a gun that fired off some rounds at the police. Sheesh...and people like h im get to play the game with a Walmart CEO? A CEO that pays himself millions while they pay they're help minimum wages....and thrive off of cheap labor....treating them like slaves....

I say, don't buy a thing from Wal mart again...they've been getting rich off of human beings...this is like the civil war all over again...? Sad, very sad...people feeding off of people actually breaking the law and saying, it's ok?????

It's shocking that Sharpton is pro-illegal in this article, when several months ago on Montel Williams show he was very against illegals coming across the border, and at the time I thought well finally I agree with him on something. He's now changed his mind apparently.

With the election coming up, Sharpton is trying to place himself in a position where all the democratic candidates fight over his endorsement. It would be hard for the democrats to fight over the endorsement of a candidate that supported cracking down on illegal aliens.

As mentioned up above, it's just Al looking out for what's best for Al.

What better way to remove all credibility than to have Sharpton endorse? This is pure genius.

Wait, I thought Al was spending all his time going after hip hop artists who use the N word? Damn, is the illegal alien problem caused by Imus too?

It's not suprising to me. Sharpton is a hypocrite plain and simple!

Of course and thanks for clarification, Al Sharpton is supposed to stand for truth and rightness as a minister of the Gospel...but seems importance on his celebrity stands in the way.
