Problems for AL SHARPTON? Say it ain't so......
Is this what we're coming to with people like Al Sharpton? He breaks the laws and it's about the government out to get him? Could he get off with this defense?
Ya, it's mean spirited of me to post this, I don't rejoice in ANYBODY'S tax problems, but seeing that I can't STAND the man, I can't help it.........I'm unapologetic. I think he's done so much to keep this country divided that it's about time he woke up to the fact he's not immune to his own problems.
I particularly like this point mentioned in the link: "Donors have included beer giant Anheuser-Busch, which gave more than $100,000 last year, and Forest City Ratner, a real estate development company that courted black leaders for support of a plan to build an NBA arena in Brooklyn. PepsiCo, for several years, gave Sharpton a compensated position on one of its advisory boards."
Right. It was explained to me about 10 years ago, that Jesse Jackson makes his living this way, too. They get paid big time for playing ball, for getting their people to stop striking, for convincing unions to go along with management, etc. Cute, huh?
And, does he have a RIGHT to do this? Talk about elitist, talk about pandering, talk about a grossly overinflated ego which allows himself to assume an empowerment even the Black community should find utterly disgusting. I'm sure many do.
