What a scary notion.
Wednesday night brought the sweetest moment yet in Sharpton’s long and controversial career: the announcement that Florida authorities would charge Trayvon Martin’s shooter. Sharpton, at the request of the boy’s parents, had done more than anyone else to bring the case national attention.

Just hours before the announcement that George Zimmerman would be charged with second-degree murder, Martin’s parents held a joint news conference with Sharpton — and a few hours before that, Attorney General Eric Holder, also at the convention, praised Sharpton for his “tireless efforts to speak out for the voiceless, to stand up for the powerless.”

It was confirmation that Sharpton has pulled off one of the rarest second acts in American public life: from pariah to power player.

Sharpton was very sad when Zimmerman was charged. He has to find another cause to continue his racist rants..!
The Martins seem like really good people and I feel very sorry for their loss, but by associating with the likes of Al sharpton they damage their image..
Sharpton is doing his best to promote a race war. He is following the lead of obama in dividing the races to try to try to fool enough people to get re-elected. It won't work, MOST people aren't that stupid...
