Sort of sounds like a lot of posters on this forum.

Is this what you meant?

He lives a very comfortable life behind the walls of a gated WHITE community, while crying racism and inequality to morons.

LOL

Enjoy!
Why are you telling me all about Sharpton's life? You're THAT obsessed with the man to the point that you know where he lives and what community he lives in?

Again, if we feel like supporting Sharpton, we will. If we don't, we won't. You can't do a damn thing about it by crying on these boards.

It's not your business either way.

What's wrong with expecting people to pay their own way?
You pay your own way and blah, blah, blah...

What the hell are you talking about? No one asked you about your personal life and how you paid your way and what you expect and yadda, yadda, yadda...please.

GTHOH with your life story. It's uninteresting. You're just a wage earner like everyone else; trying to make it from check to check.

This is about Sharpton, and if blacks feel like supporting Sharpton, they will. Deal with it.

Conservative whites...not all whites. They're seriously obsessed with the guy. I've never seen this much jock riding in my life.

If that's Sharpton, so be it.

If folks don't like it, too bad.
Its precisely this attitude that makes Loyalty To The Race seem more prevalent than common sense. If you support Al Sharpton you should be prepared to accept the ridicule. There is absolutely nothing respectable about Al Sharpton.

Well, well, well. We started with all black people support Sharpton; then all black people commit crimes; now - all black people demand that other take care of them.

Typical Republican. Don't worry - America sees you for what you are - even though you cannot see it for yourself.

You couldn't ridicule me if you tried...here or anywhere else regardless of whom i support.

And i didn't say i supported Sharpton, but if i did, so what. Do i tell you who you should or shouldn't support?

You don't have the right or authority to drop this weird version of paternalism, where you get to decide how i should pick the people i support just because you're white. I'll worry about that..thank you very much.
