Skip to comments.Time for Jackson, Sharpton to Step Down

Im calling for Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, the president and vice president of Black America, to step down.Their leadership is stale. Their ideas are outdated. And they dont give a damn about us.
We need to take a cue from White America and re-elect our leadership every four years. White folks realize that power corrupts. Thats why they placed term limits on the presidency. They know if you leave a man in power too long he quits looking out for the interest of his constituency and starts looking out for his own best interest.
Weve turned Jesse and Al into Supreme Court justices. They get to speak for us for a lifetime.
If judged by the results theyve produced the last 20 years, youd have to regard their administration as a total failure. Seriously, compared to Martin and Malcolm and the freedoms and progress their leadership produced, Jesse and Al are an embarrassment.
Their job the last two decades was to show black people how to take advantage of the opportunities Martin and Malcolm won.
Have we at the level we should have? No.
Rather than inspire us to seize hard-earned opportunities, Jesse and Al have specialized in blackmailing white folks for profit and attention. They were at it again last week, helping to turn radio shock jock Don Imus stupidity into a world-wide crisis that reached its crescendo Tuesday afternoon when Rutgers womens basketball coach C. Vivian Stringer led a massive pity party/recruiting rally.

Sharpton and Jackson only have a platform because CBS et al gives it to them. Why should Les Moonves, President of CBS News, agree to meet with a muckraker like Al Sharpton? Moonves caved and after initially agreeing on a 2 week suspension, instead told Imus to bend over. They changed the rules on Imus without giving him fair notice. More PC run amok. The MSM is still scared to death of 60’s black radicals. A lot of good Imus’ apology did as far as keeping his job was concerned. He (unnecessarily) groveled and got fired anyway. File that one away for future reference.
It would be hard to ‘step down’ from the basement...
These two are like athletes foot fungus.
Even Fox. Sharpton especially turns up on Hannity, O’Reilly, and other shows—regularly. Quit giving this race-baiter a platform, Fox!
Wow, right on the money.
I nominate Jason Whitlock to take their place.
We need to take a cue from White America and re-elect our leadership every four years.
I always thought that was something ALL Americans did. Apparently not everyone thinks as I do. Sad really...
“We have more important issues to deal with than Imus. If we are unwilling to clean up the filth and disrespect we heap on each other, nothing will change with our condition. You can fire every Don Imus in the country, and our incarceration rate, fatherless-child rate, illiteracy rate and murder rate will still continue to skyrocket.
A man who doesnt respect himself wastes his breath demanding that others respect him.
We dont respect ourselves right now. If we did, we wouldnt call each other the N-word. If we did, we wouldnt let people with prison values define who we are in music and videos. If we did, we wouldnt call black women bitches and hos and abandon them when they have our babies.”
WOW is all I can say. Maybe, just maybe, this kind of talk will change something.
Whitlock, as usual is right on the money. He is the Mark Steyn of sportwriters.
I heard this guy on both Lou Dobbs last night and MSNBC this morning. Smart, articulate and insightful...he makes more sense than any of the talking heads I’ve heard the the last two days.
It is indeed time. All these 2 do is stir up more conflict & accomplish nothing.
Hell, they’re onto something good (Lord only knows what that actually izzzzzzzz). If I were a nappy headed hoe chaser with no skill, talent or clue... I’d be doing the same thing. Everyones gotta earn a buck somehow, right?
Sharpton, Jackson and the ilk make a living off fostering RACISM. They are SCUM.
I never heard that before. That's disgusting. Considering the racial hatred Jackson and Sharpton have done such a good job fanning the flames of, it might be a good idea to look who's preparing your food.
Jason Whitlock is incorrect on one point, though. We don’t have “white leaders”. There are no white leaders. Nor is there a need for them. The “black leaders” have actually been chosen by white liberals.
