But I think Al Sharpton is a media hungry fool. This was totally just a bad choice of words on the anchor's part, to suggest that she be fired, Al is just looking for his time in the spotlight yet again....
Pretty much agree. I think he'd get a lot more traction and be a lot more effective as a leader if he didn't respond to a situation by throwing gasoline on the fire. I recall a few years ago there was controversy about monority participation on a highway project. Valid point, we need more qualified trades on jobs and as part of that we need qualified monorities. Al came into town, they shut the highway down, had the news cameras show up and then he left. Now I can't say if he was involved after the fact, but I doubt it. All he does is raise the anger level. What gets results is for two sides to get together with a willingness to fix it.
Agreed he comes in makes his show and leaves with what to show for it but another news clip and a bunch of angry people.
I just have this to say to the great Reverend Al Sharpton. Just because you have the right to free speech doesn't mean you have to use it.
