NEW YORK (AP) -- The Rev. Al Sharpton is a "lightning rod" for President Barack Obama on inner city streets, Obama's former Harvard mentor and friend said Saturday at a forum in Harlem.
But Sharpton, who led the event, told The Associated Press that America's first black president "has to work both for us and for others," and that if Obama were to push a race-based agenda, "that would only organize the right against him....."

Racists in arms..
Super pics. The thugs have taken over the nation.
I am by no means judging the Reverend, but how many times has anyone ever heard him read scripture or preach the gospel, you must be born again? He has done countless interviews with countless commentators and it usually is always social issues. Rev, you need to worry about the souls of men and women, not who your friends are. A friend of the world is at enmity with GOD.
Sharpton actually says some good things in this article.
And even Sharpton has figured out that Barry is a user...
“I’ve been as much in this White House as I was in George (W.) Bush’s - it’s only when Bush invited me to the White House, it was him reaching out; when Obama invites me, all of a sudden, we’re allies,”
” Black Americans, Sharpton said, “need to solve our own problems.”
What a novel idea.
And what the heck was Michael Steele doing there ?
Let me guess-running down the Republican party as racist.
Please JoeProBono, I am beginning to throw up. Too many pictures of the truth, they are all dangerous.
Good Heavens- Maybe 0 should have him in his cabinet.
Czar of the “Big Mouth Department”.
To think this guy got his start with a cruel hoax, He fits right in!
Secretary of Jive.
I wonder, am I a “racist” for calling myself wnc mountainBOY. By their standards probably yes.
More like Obama’s link to the gutter.
The hyper-ignorant renta-mob will always be at Obama’s dispense, with or without the “reverend”.
Rev. Al, voice of the people? Nope.
I see Obama finally got around to viewing Dorothy Wright Tillman, Michael Eric Dyson and others on We Count, the black agenda (and they’re his friends, so it was double-plus good). Black unemployment, no vouchers, losing homes/apartments, taking the elderly church ladies COLA away from social security for two years, Medicare services already getting chopped down, fed money into cities housing programs cut at the last minute, brothers witnessing illegals getting their jobs and anything they want with the unions, dropouts and crime rampant in Chicago and now that he’s used them, their complexion, took their dimes, lied to them and fooled them, they’re pissed.
They don’t want to hear ‘tool’ Sharpton, who’s been around decades lining his pockets and chasing the next criminal to represent crying racism. He’s part of the problem.
Was he marching to the WH on jobs, schools, ACORN scams?
What ARE they doing?
Obama would be better served by listening to the Rev Manning
he looks like he has had a lot of practice like that .. maybe Larry Sinclaire has been giving him lessons again?
