    The tragic event in Ferguson, Missouri, where an unarmed black teen, Michael Brown, was killed by Darren Wilson, a white police officer, triggered off a wave of protests, rioting and looting.

    As usual, the event was politicized. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton were in town. These two men made their careers as defenders of the black community. This means that they have to convince their followers that America is racist and black people need defending. Otherwise, they don’t have a job.

    But, wait a minute, partner.
    Michael brown did NOT consider himself ”unarmed.”
    Mike Brown’s Instagram Account has been Found.
    Among other things he wrote was this:
    “My Hands My Ammunition”

    There is a lot of anger in the black community because they are poorer than the majority whites.

    Which is not only misplaced anger, but is also a form of racism. There is not one white American alive today that prevents any black from getting a high school education, or attending a community college at night, or not getting a police record. Nor is it whites forcing black women to have children out of wedlock (70%) which only continues the cycle of poverty.

    A realistic viewpoint:

    This anger is unfortunately exploited by black leaders and politicians for their own gain.

    Exploit it? Not only do blacks like Al Sharpton exploit the anger, they encourage it, they feed it, they propagate it. Imagine there was a white counterpart to Al Sharpton. Oh, wait, there was. His name is David Duke. Does he have his own TV show on a major network? Does he get invitations to the White House? Is he considered an expert on “race relations” by the Administration? No, Duke is a has-been, shunned by the majority of other whites.

    MSNBC will continue to hire losers like Sharpton until they are down to 10 viewers.

    MSNBC clearly and intentionally made a decision to hire a person with low morals, weak character, no respectable principles, dishonest and deceptive to host a program on their network. How is it that they might wonder why their network has ZERO credibility?

    Sharpton has a very dark heart – a reverent he is not; anyone inciting violence and lies does not deserve that title.
    Sharpton ‘project’ his own motives and warped view of racism on any white person – police officer or not.
    Sharpton has mastered this spiel – he is one who cries racism behind everything he does. If MSNBC would cancel his show today – he would march in the street accusing the network of racism.

    Sharpton does not deserve respect from anyone; projecting his racism on a white police officer should be expected – because if it were about the interest of black americans – he would march in Chicago everyday. Ergo – there is no money or notoriety to gain in Chicago – it is to be made only when it involves a white police officer.

    Should his spiel misfire ala Tawana Brawley or Crown Heights – even if his actions end in murder – there are no consequences for him – moving onto the next opportunity.
    Sharpton is the real racist and always has been; ‘the white man’ is not keeping him down – he has a TV show given by a white man.

    Why is al still alive?Within the last year has been credited for being a fbi informant, bringing down some of the biggest families in NYC and the east coast. He has a high price west end condo and owes millions in taxes which has never been collected.
    Ever wonder the mob has not wacked him for what he did to the families and the business not to mention the economic impact. Al and jessie are racist trash. Some day, someone will take out the garbage.

    Black immigrants do not identify with the historical experiences of discrimination.
    As a result, protest leaders like Al Sharpton are less likely to influence them.
    MSNBC should look at the writing on the wall……
    More Africans are CHOOSING to move into the USA every DECADE than were imported over 300 years of slave trade!
    That’s right.
    Fewer and fewer Americans buy the idea that blacks today suffer from anything but their own bad decisions.
    Most whites here now are descendants of non-slave-owning immigrants themselves.
    All Hispanics here now are descended from non-slave owners.
    All Asians here now are also descended from non-slave owners.
    And now, many blacks living here never had American slave ancestors.

    Sharpton ought to quit while he can still have a false modicum of dignity.
