Rev. Al Sharpton got a surprise Tuesday during his national radio broadcast. The preacher was talking to Bill Cosby about his controversial speech at the Spellman College commencement, in which Cosby urged graduates to "pick up the pace" because "most [African-American men] are in prison." As Cosby took calls from listeners, a very special voice came on the line. It was the Natural Woman herself, Aretha Franklin, calling from her home in Detroit. The Queen of Soul backed Cosby's remarks. "It was the ultimate defense from the ultimate black woman," Sharpton told The Post's Stephanie Gaskell after the show.

It would be nice if they told what she said.
Hooray! God bless Aretha. It's a hard struggle for these voices to be heard against the 'appointed leaders'(all media creations).
Hopefully Aretha will get Sharpton and his Chain of Fools to Think a little. She commands Respect.
News outside of the communist-inspired MSM playbook is downplayed. I am surprised that they even mentioned that the great Aretha Franklin called.
Is is believable now why "actors" and entertainers were nor allowed in normal peoples homes as little as 100 years ago? There must have been a reason everybody sort of forgot about.
There is something weird about people who appear normal only when pretending to be someone fictional...
What a voice.
Oooops wrong thread. This was supposed to go to the Charlie Sheen thread...
Would be great if we could get more info on what she said. I don't think I could take five minutes of Rev Al's voice.
What does it mean to *you*,Reverend Jesse?
If I had to go invade a foreign country, Aretha would be one of the people I'd want going with me. That woman is nothing but brave and intelligent.
Now Ms. Aretha... she's one formidable babe. Her musican number in The Blues Brothers is one of my favorite in film history. That voice.
It's so great reading good news for once. Even though my tastes in music run to rock/metal, I've always enjoyed Aretha Franklin. It would be nice if she spoke out publicly about these issues. The lady commands respect.
I was wondering WTF you were talking about...
Sharpton's Chain, Chain, Chain of Fools.................lmao!!!!!!!!!!
Bummer, the pic didn't show up : (
Thank you. I enjoyed that.
