I hate Al Sharpton because when you get down to it, he's nothing more than a black racist who relishes in sensationalism and attention in the media.
Al almost never looks at the facts and simply resorts to screaming "racism" at any crime against blacks. The best examples of this would be the Bernard Goetz and Tawana Brawley cases in 1984 and 1987 (respectively). In the Goetz case, Sharpton disregards the fact that Goetz's "targets" were trying to attack and rob him, and in the Brawley case, when evidence surfaced that Brawley was in fact not sexually assaulted, Sharpton still insisted that her attackers (who were all white) were still guilty.
I can't believe MSNBC gave this racist dirtbag his own show.
I'll leave you with a timeless clip from the Morton Downey Jr. Show in 1988, where Roy Innis (a far, far more respectable civil rights leader) knocks down Reverend Al.
