Oh he will. People should recall when Erica Snipes was secretly video recorded at a planed protest for her Father she stated her dis like for Sharpton and stated he is all about the money. Sharprton's cut will be at least a million dollars.

Well folks it's been a little over two months since the Garner family settled with the city of NY and RUMH and what do you know this story has all but died and been swept under the rug. So much for it not being about the money. These people incited riots and help contribute to the murder of several Police officers and are responsible for hundreds more being injured at the behest of the Sharpton crime family and they walk away with millions of tax free dollars that they had no business receiving and Eric Garner's grave still doesn't have a proper headstone. He has been forgotten about by everyone including the ones who claimed that they loved him so much.

He's not getting anything like that from them. Or anything. He's not their lawyer and they owe him nothing.

The best thing he ever did for his family was resist arrest...
She may have already gotten it from his estate.

They don't him anything but, Sharpton has made a living out of sponging off other's ill be gotten gains for decades. Even Garner's daughter said so in that hidden camera interview. Sharpton is only bout da' Benjamins.

I'm curious, from your own unique perspective, to hear what you think about what I will ask here, which relates to some aspects brought up in this thread:

I'm reasonably sure that you've seen various postings of mine over the course of time whereby I chastise and condemn others for simple and pure racial/ethnic hatred or enmity and to instead encourage them to focus on "the color of behavior" rather than "the color of skin". I just try to look at all matters in a dispassionate, intellectually honest manner and just focus on the choices made by individuals (regardless of what race, color, ethnicity, nationality, creed, gender, age, religion, et al that individual or collection of individuals comes from). I ask this of you as a dispassionate and impartial social scientist would (re: a sociologist or social psychologist) . . . just to try to understand the "whys" and how comes" regarding certain individuals or persons reflective of certain categories or types of the human population at-large who choose to or appear to engage in certain wrongful or questionable behavior patterns (seemingly as a way-of-life). These are asked of you in particular in this thread, as I sense that you yourself are a person-of-color and one who is an often-sympathetic spokersperson and defender of people of color and especially those of lower socioeconomic standing. And I'm assuming that, judging from the bulk of my own postings over the course of time, you are able to gauge me as being sympathetic as well (or enough so to be reasonable). Yet I DO often wonder what is the real honest-to-goodness TRUE motivation(s) or drive(s) for why certain stereotypical behaviors are so frequently engaged in by select members of the population-at-large and would be interested in YOUR OWN opinions and perspective. The question(s) is/are:
From your own unique insights and perspective, WHY are there those in the low or lowest income bracket (or even perhaps the no-income bracket) who take it upon themselves to have multiple children and then with multiple mothers (such as Eric Garner having 6 children up to the point of his untimely death with 3 different women . . . and, for all we know, he may have taken it upon himself to have even more children if he were still to had continued living) when they truly do know, in their own heart-of-hearts, that they are teetering on the edge of survivability and viability themselves and burdened often with other pressing or even overwhelming issues (e.g., medical issues, addictions, a proclivity to getting in trouble with the law and serving extended time incarcerated, a lack of viable skills to work more regularly or viably, psychological or psychiatric or neuropsychiatric problems, varying degrees of homelessness or at least sometimes)? In other words, what do YOU PERSONALLY think is the actual exact psychological motivation(s) or drive(s) that drive them to go this path? They can hardly (if at all) take care of themselves and they often enough don't even stick around to be around all those children (or not all at once for all of them . . . and how could they, if they have multiple different women that they made pregnant? are ALL the differnt women and ALL the different children going to live under the same roof at the same time?). It appears that they are often what we term "absentee fathers" and it appears (to my mind, unless I'm misperceiving the truth) that they truly do KNOW that they will be absentee fathers or at least most of the time. So then why create all these chldren in the first place and then put such an undue economic, psychological, social and physical burden on oneself and on the children? What is the TRUE HONEST-TO-GOD rhyme or reason behind these choices of theirs . . . from your own unique opinion and perspective?

I have my own guesstimates or suspicions about what the true motivation(s) or drive(s) is/are but, rather than put words into anyone else's mouth or express what may be incorrect assumptions, I'd instead be interested in hearing YOUR OWN particular perspective. And know that this is coming from someone who is NOT NOT NOT an enemy of people of color or anyone else. I can like or even love anyone of civil- and right-standing ways-of-thinking and behaving and of redeeming character. And know that I have often enough been on the low or lower end of the socioeconomic scale myself in my life span thus far (being a Caucasisn Jewish male now in my 60s per this writing)-- though not really poor/low income any longer --so I am not ever someone who comes from a classist perspective toward my fellow humans nor is characterized by racial or ethnic enmity toward anyone (unlike enough others on the Internet who do so seemingly as a reflection of a certain underlying character type). What would be your own informed input and viewpoints on the question(s) raised here?
