Because a tv channel hired him, it is no different than that moron Glenn Beck having his own tv show for a while. You don't blame white people for Glenn Beck do you?

Oh, he gets a crappy show on MSNBC and that means he is adored by all black folk?

Please.

Is Rush adored by all white folk? Why aren't you busy denouncing our own failed, divisive, white ringleaders?

Or do you just have a h*rd on for Sharpton, in particular?

Most viewers of MSNBC are white, not black.

And because he has a low-rated show on MSNBC, he is "prominent?"

And why do you assume that Black folks support Al Sharpton to the death? Most Black people I know don't pay any attention to Al Sharpton. The MEDIA pays attention to him.

Why do people continue to make blanket statements without merit?
