Al Sharpton: Civil Rights Hero

New York, New York (Accredited Times) – Al Sharpton once said, “But resist we much.  We must, and we will much — about that — be committed.”  Those eloquent words of wisdom still ring true to this very day.  Fortunately, we’ve been able to resist so much because of the greatest civil rights hero of the 21st century:  the Reverend Al Sharpton.

For decades, Sharpton has led the African-American civil rights movement.  In 2016, Vanity Fair called Sharpton “arguably the country’s most influential civil rights leader.”  Recognizing his wisdom and genius, MSNBC made Sharpton a full-fledged member of the accredited media, where he has hosted a one-hour program, PoliticsNation with Al Sharpton, since 2011.  Although Sharpton has faced ratings problems because of racism and White Privilege, his influence with the progressive establishment has never been stronger.  White House visitor logs show that Sharpton even visited the White House over 100 times under Barack Hussein Obama’s Presidency.

Why is Sharpton such a civil rights hero? — because he always stands up for innocent People of Color brutalized by White Privilege.  When African-American Tawana Brawley alleged gang-rape at the hands of white males, Sharpton answered the call.  When Freddie’s Fashion Mart sought to evict a black-owned record store, Sharpton stood up again, noting, “We will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business.”  In 2001, the Bush administration even jailed Sharpton for protesting against U.S. military exercises on Vieques in Puerto Rico.  The military, however, eventually agreed with Sharpton and pulled out of Vieques after recognizing that America has oppressed Puerto Rico for decades.

Now Sharpton has again answered the call in defense of ESPN host Jemele Hill.  As reported by the accredited media, ESPN shockingly suspended Hill for two weeks for telling fans to “boycott” the Dallas Cowboys’ “advertisers” after  Jerry Jones, the Cowboys’ owner, ordered players to stand for the national anthem.  ESPN claimed that Hill had committed a “second violation of [its] social media guidelines.”  Hill’s first alleged “violation” was a tweet calling Donald Trump a “white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself [with] other white supremacists.”

In other words, reporting the truth is now apparently a “violation” at ESPN.

Well, ESPN, you just picked a fight with the Reverend Al.

“Rev. Sharpton . . . will call for a meeting with the Chairman of the Board and demand an immediate reinstatement of Jemele Hill along with other demands pertaining to corporate diversity,” Sharpton said, speaking of himself in the third person.  “ESPN’s suspension of Jemele Hill is an outrage and should NOT go unanswered.  ESPN and advertisers will hear from us!” Sharpton further tweeted.

The Hill incident is just more proof that Al Sharpton is the world’s greatest living civil rights hero, undoubtedly just as deserving of a Nobel Peace Prize as Barack Hussein Obama.  African-American political activists should never forget Sharpton’s sage words of wisdom:  Resist we much.  We must, and we will much — about that — be committed.

Jemele Hill is a modern day Rosa Parks. She’ll have her own CNN morning show within a matter of weeks.

Al Sharpton getting involved with the Disney board is like the parents calling a meeting with the school superintendent because little Johnny said he got a bad grade because the teacher doesn’t like him.

Welcome to America – the land of freedom and crybabies.

And this is a good thing right? I can’t tell if you’re being sarcastic. Just state your intentions sir, we’re too angry about social justice here to interpret your witty remarks!

Did this ACTUALLY happen? Because if it did I can get Johnny a good lawyer. Hurt feelings generate emotional scars that never heal. That could be worth a lot of money.

Yes she is, and any apparent racial solidarity coming from Sharpton is totally warranted and it’s even racist to point it out!

He didn’t demand a meeting for James Damore, did he?

Wow it’s so great that accredited media outlets are giving a voice to civil rights heroes like Al Sharpton 🙂

It was so original, courageous and wise of him to call Trump a white supremacist. This is the glaring truth that no one dares to speak. Trump may not have said anything to that effect, but his actions speak louder than words. Trump believes in capitalism, which allows whites to dominate the economy, while conveniently pointing to Asians doing better than them to convince us that they are not racist. Trump believes in grades, which always penalize people of color time and time again in school after school, where they under-perform due to white privilege favoring the white and Asian students.

These are the civil rights issues of our time! First we had to deal with slavery, then Jim Crow, and now it’s capitalism, grades and IQ tests! The injustice must end now!

You failed to mention the most important thing that I am most concerned with – the alarming number of POC that are being gunned down by racist police.

MillionDollarBonus

Wow I’m so sorry! You’re right – this is the NUMBER ONE civil rights issue of our time! White racist police officers shooting harmless black people who never commit any crimes!

trav777

Yes…you even have to take your shoes off to count that high! Africans are rightly pissed off, angry, and violent about it, because when they count them up, it’s 1, 2, 3, many…many many many…it’s MANY unarmed black men getting gunned down and this has to stop with violence.

Abu –

When you get elected president, we will gladly send Al Sharpton to Guinea Conakry to be an aide of yours in stopping the oppression in Guinea. He has a stunning resume and a long track record of success in healing the wounds of racism and bringing people together.

Love,

America

Alright. Bringing people together is exactly what I want to achieve. And I have already called out for the international communities to join me and support me because one finger will never pick a rock on the ground, you have to use two or more fingers to pick up the rock from the ground.

And Mr AL Sharpton will definitely be able to help me out so that we can put some truth in the hears of our people in Africa not just Guinea Conakry.

Sharpton? Ain’t he the Bernie Madoff of Brooklyn? Isn’t he the marble-mouthed, philandering, tax cheating, obnoxious, shake-down artist, con-man, and phony reverend? If that’s the guy you talking about, he’s un-American. Deport him NOW!

The only thing that is un-American is anti-diversity. America was founded on the principle of diversity, so that everyone can be an American. The whole world watches Hollywood movies now, and they feel just as American as you do!
