Skip to comments.Sharpton Fires Back At O’Reilly: Since When Are You The ‘Expert On What African-Americans Want?’
Posted on 07/27/2013 7:52:38 PM PDT by NotYourAverageDhimmi
MSNBCs Al Sharpton took Bill OReillys recent comments about race head-on Friday evening, after the Fox anchor singled him out last night for being in business with people who put out entertainment harmful to children. Sharpton called it ridiculous that OReilly is somehow the expert on what the vast majority of African-Americans want.
In the time since George Zimmermans acquittal, Sharpton declared, some right-wingers have gone into overdrive to push the most negative stereotypes of the African-American community for their own gain. He lumped OReilly in with Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity as the unholy triumvirate of right-wing reaction that has been desperate not to have a real conversation about the injustices of the justice system.
Sharpton mocked OReilly and others for their sudden concern about gang violence in Chicago, something he said many of us in African-American community have been talking about for months. Better late than never, I guess. On OReillys focus on the breakdown of the African-American family, Sharpton asked, Is Bill OReilly saying George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin because Trayvon was born out of wedlock, even though he wasnt? Thats ridiculous, right?
All of this is an effort to avoid addressing the urgent topic that something is fundamentally flawed with our justice system if laws like Stand Your Ground allow a kid to be gunned down, Sharpton continued. But Rush, Hannity, OReilly dont want to talk about that.
Sarcastically calling OReilly the expert on the vast majority of what African-Americans want, Sharpton said, we need a real conversation about justice in this country, not the same old right-wing divide and conquer garbage. Bill OReilly, the Willie Horton stuff has got to go.

Since when is Al Charlatan an expert on how whites think?
Took The Head From Another Planet long enough to reply
since when is Al an expert on what Americans want?
Oh, you want to shove your dogma down our throats for our own good?
“Resist we much!” Right Al?
When exactly did Irreverend Al become the spokesman for blacks in America?
There is no way Al "resist we much" Sharpton came up with triumvirate by himself.
That's funny. One of the most negative stereo types of African Americans is Al Sharpton himself.
Hey Al, what the hell do you know about what the black community needs..you won’t step foot in Chicago without an armed guard protecting your sorry ass

Oh, I know this one. It was Earl Butz’s joke.
Two of the three things are loose shoes and a warm place to go to the toilet.
When it’s raining, he has an assistant hold an umbrella for him. Guess he’s too stupid to work one himself.
Maybe they don't want to talk about it because SYG had nothing whatsoever to do with the Zimmerman case. If we tried to make it any more clear to you, Sharpton, we'd have to use crayons and drawing. But you probably would call that racist too.
We're getting increasingly tired about 'conversations about race' where only your side gets to talk.
al doesnt know what THOUGHT.....IS
al doesnt know MUCH about MUCH
‘’about that be much assured”..al sharpton...2000 something
So true and so funny.
Black on black violence started only months ago according to Sharpton?
Sadly in “Rev.” Al’s mind, he firmly believes GZ jumped out of his car, ran up to St. Skittles and shot him. The evidence showing that TM was beating GZ head into the walk have never entered his pea sized mind.
