Skip to comments.Time for Jackson, Sharpton to Step Down
Posted on 04/13/2007 8:38:10 AM PDT by MrCFdovnh
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 Their ideas are outdated.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.
Booker T. Washington
Read the whole article. That one left a mark!
I think he was pointing out that white men designed our political system.
Jackson gets away with calling NYC hymietown. Sharpton is even worse:
1)In 1989, a young woman jogger in Central Park was viciously raped and beaten by a gang of youths. Sharpton led a mob outside the court which claimed, without a shred of evidence, that the boyfriend did it, and screamed that the victim was a whore.
2)At a rally in Harlem, Sharpton denounced a Jewish small business owner as a white interloper, and then stood by approvingly while one his associates incited the crowd to violence. Later, a listener killed seven people in the store. Sharpton then lied and claimed he had never been at the rally.
3)Sharpton helped incite a murderous anti-Jewish pogrom in Brooklyn when he gave a speech at a funeral of a black child who had been accidentally killed by a Jewish driver. Sharpton announced, If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house. He also organized a boycott of small grocery stores owned by Korean immigrants. He called New York Citys first black mayor, David Dinkins, that n- whore turning tricks in City Hall.
4) In 1994, Sharpton explained black cultural superiority: White folks were in caves while we were building empires. . . . We taught philosophy, astrology, and mathematics before Socrates and those Greek homos.
Bingo. Sharpton & Jackson serve as conduits to assuage white (liberal) guilt. Black confessors for White Guilt.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flxTSt-rajI Al Sharpton talks about Don Imus, then wakes up Caucasian. "Al Sharpton (represented by a pig) talks about Don Imus, "Jewish diamond merchants," "white interlopers," and "Greek homos," goes to bed, and wakes up to discover that he has become a Caucasian. How will the "Impresario of Hatred," as he was called in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece, ever make it as a white person after spending a lifetime selling hatred of whites, Koreans, and Jews? Don't worry, Al Sharpton is very resourceful and he wastes no time in finding a perfect home for his unique talents"
Google on "Sharpton" and "Greek homos"--wait until the gay community finds out about that one. Ann Coulter got in trouble for simply mentioning the word "faggot." I wonder how people will react after it gets around that Sharpton, NOT joking as Coulter was, called gay people "homos."
Great read. Right on the nose.
Step down from what? They don’t have “jobs”. They are shake down artists and con men.
This is an admirable observation and is the true heart of the matter. It would truly help if the voices of reason and optimism from the black community could be heard. Bill Cosby, Jesse Peterson, Niger Ennis among others.
“Bill Cosby, Jesse Peterson, Niger Ennis among others.”
To the left, these guys are just Uncle Toms and worse.
Ahhh, the left, the party if tolerance.
So if a "leftwinger" is burdened by guilt and self-hatred and a "rightwinger" is a proud chauvinist, on which "wing" does the good Reverend really sit?
I'm reminded of the Nazi claim that "ve are zee Aryans! Ve infented cifilization!"
Which is really strange when you consider that liberals aren't supposed to believe in sin or guilt in the first place.
They are just doing what the MSM is allowing them to do. The MSM are the ones who are enabling them.
Now that's funny. I'd enjoy sitting back and watching Sharpton fight with an Imam over their (completely rediculous) claims of who invented mathematics, astrology and philosophy.
Maybe the Imam would wake Sharpton up as to who, according to Allah, is superior to who, and whom is to always be enslaved by whom until the last day. (Blacks aren't allowed in Islam's heavenly brothel)
This has been well-known for years. No one has said anything and no one will say anything.
Ahhh yes. I remember Niger
Where was Jesse and Al then?
The real issue is hinted at here: the rise of the 21th century Klu Klux Klan
lead by Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson helped by a race-baiting cracker named Nifong.
It is not surprising that Nifong was a Democrat running for office.
Amazing!! You could not have said it any better!!!
did sharptin ever apologize the the policeman and his family when we found out Brawley LIED about what happened to her? Did I miss the apology? If he DIDN’T APOLOGIZE...if I were the policeman now...I would go before the cameraas and insist that sharptin issue his aplogy right now.
Good link. Thanks.
Thank you MrCFdovnh.. and THANK YOU Jason Whitlock!
Amazing. A hundred years ago and the hustlers are still with us. They will always be, I suppose.
But of course!
If they fire IMUS, shouldn’t they at least take away his law license? How much more obvious does it have to get with this cretin?
I donated money to lift "willi"s law ticket.
I would donate to lift Nifong's ticket
Excellent points...good article.
I have never been a racist, not that I know of, except for the contempt I hold for those that are racist against me.
I will likely never understand the way that many Blacks look at things in today’s world, but how could I ? I’m a white guy and my ancestors did in fact own slaves. However, some of my ancestors also died fighting to free the slaves.
Yep...the Blacks defiantly need to dump Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. They may win a fight here and there, but they sure make you folks look bad and every time they open their mouths, they take race relations back another decade.
Perhaps the author meant that white men set up our system that elects a President every four years with term limitations. That is the way I took it, anyway.
I have long believed that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton keep things stirred-up and conflicted, not to bring justice to blacks, but to keep themselves relevant. If they spent a bunch of time guiding the black (ghetto) culture into mainstream America, they would not have anything with which to shake-down whitey. Jackson and Sharpton need to be revealed as the race dividers that they are, and this young man's article go a long way in that direction.
