Civil rights activist Al Sharpton complained on Tuesday that the Democratic presidential candidates have been less than forceful in speaking out about recent hate crimes and the policies of President Bush's Justice Department.
The New York-based reverend was in Washington with Martin Luther King III and other activists to discuss a march next week at the headquarters of the Justice Department, which they contend has taken no serious action to prosecute a spate of recent noose-hanging incidents following the Jena Six case.
Sharpton said he was upset those issues weren't discussed last month at a debate among the Democratic candidates.
"Hate crimes and racism and Jena never came up one time. Even the Democrats have not, in our judgment, raised their voices to the level they should," said Sharpton, who ran for president in 2004. "Don't come to us for our vote and then not speak about our needs when you're center stage."

Said Sharpton: “I HATE those Dems.”
Said Pelosi: “Hey now, don’t be a hater.”
That's where they lost me...
Sit down poverty pimp!
Al Sharpton is a force for hate. He is an antagonist.
“”Civil rights activist Al Sharpton..”
That’s where they lost me...”
It’s his rights and our wrongs, eh?
Hey, Reverund Al, I have ordination papers. What do you have?
I didn’t realize Civil Rights terrorists had signed on to hate crimes, IIRC, Willy Jefferson invented hate crimes for violence against gays.
“Since evolution is true, no reason to fear global warming, we’ll adapt.”
Just who, then, will you vote for?
And who's "us"? Got a mouse in your pocket? Or do you presume to speak for all "people of color"?
Sharpton is in the bidness, he is pimping for a living,
The man most likely never heard of Voltaire.
If Sharpton had his way he would pimp out the first amendment for a handful of dollars.
Sharpton’s mad because they’re crimpin’ his pimpin’.

Then go 3rd party, Al. Show them you mean it!
Uh, Reverend? Have you apologized to the Duke Lacrosse players for condemning them before they were found guilty of a crime? How come I hear nothing but crickets?
Making a living of racism. C’mon Al.
