Want to influence a casino bid? Polish your corporate image? Not be labeled a racist?
Then you need to pay Al Sharpton.
For more than a decade, corporations have shelled out thousands of dollars in donations and consulting fees to Sharptons National Action Network. What they get in return is the reverends supposed sway in the black community or, more often, his silence.
Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal met with the activist preacher after leaked emails showed her making racially charged comments about President Obama. Pascal was under siege after a suspected North Korean cyberattack pressured the studio to cancel its release of The Interview, which depicts the assassination of dictator Kim Jong-un.
Pascal and her team were said to be shaking in their boots and afraid of the Rev, The Post reported.
No payments to NAN have been announced, but Sharpton and Pascal agreed to form a working group to focus on racial bias in Hollywood.

Tawana Brawley bump for later....
Sharpton: shakedown artist, race pimp, and general gutter-dwelling scumbag.
ATT gave Jesse Jackson’s Operation Push a half million to not be called racist. Nice work if you can get it.
My favorite was the ‘Digital Divide’ in Silicon Valley. T.J. Rodgers was having none of it. Claimed Jackson was like pigeons flying in, dropping their stuff and then fly away.
A good old fashioned protection racket.
If you grew-up in a mobbed-up town, you understand Democrats.
It’s a protection racket. If the company doesn’t pay up, sharpton calls out the professional street thugs. It’s extortion, and that’s illegal. Even the “justice” department has bowed to him: he is never prosecuted for his crimes.
Point clearly made by Pres Trump......he is a Con Man....which is NOT racist to point out by the way
The upper echelons of the mafia got hit with RICO charges for basically doing the same thing Protection racket).
A cynic might say only as a means of eliminating competition after the government got into the numbers rackets.
“Sharpton: shakedown artist, race pimp, and general gutter-dwelling scumbag.”
And you used to be able to buy him off with a trip to Men’s Wearhouse with your credit card. I understand it’s nothing less than a bespoke suit for him now.
This is right out of “Bonfire of the Vanities” (Tom Wolfe - 1987)
>Polish your corporate image?
Sharpton knows Polish?
“Gargoyle-Head-on-a-Stick” not only extorts cash, he forces ad agencies and the companies they work for to misrepresent the average negro as a highly educated paragon of virtue and accomplishment living in the tony suburbs with his gorgeous blond with and their darling, well behaved children.
Sharpton.should be in jail.
Who’s go the balls to prosecute him?
Tax-free too. What a gig.
