The vast majority of blacks have no idea of who Al Sharpton is, just as the vast majority of whites have no idea who Pat Buchanan is.

Why is it that after you have been informed NUMEROUS times that most black people do NOT support Al Sharpton - that you continue to harp on the fallacy that they do?

Splain that one.

As a black person, I must say that Al Sharpton is a joke. I cannot stand when this guy speaks on an issue. He is one of the most biased, racist and hypocritical people in the media. The sad thing is, is that he is a "leader" for black folks. The black leaders of the 50's and 60's would just laugh at this idiot. He does absolutely nothing to help blacks. All he does is blame and whine, blame and whine... Whine about minor things such as a black person getting denied service or the Trayvon Martin case... I have never heard him say something like "Hey black people, our crime rates are xyz, our black youth is xyz" Let's improve this.

Never

"Black leaders."

Who are some "white leaders?" Why is it that I am never told be told about what my "white leaders" are saying? I'm aiming this at both right-wingers and lefties who use this stupid term.

To understand how far the civil rights movement has become a farce, consider that Martin Luther King Jr's actions have never been the subject of a Saturday Night Live skit, and Al Sharpton's actions have been the subject of several.

Enough said. He's an embarrassment to the nation, and black people would do well to ignore him and subject him to permanent irrelevancy.

Because they choose not to be informed??? How can you not know who these individuals are? Are the folks who have no idea who they are the same folks screaming racism at the attempts to institute voter ID laws? How can one be both unaware of former presidential candidates and complain of racism in voter ID laws???

Most of you choose to be misinformed and scream about things. Why should I be more troubled about them than you? Frankly, you folks scream much louder.
