Al Sharpton - an old announcement and my comments

Al Sharpton & Councilwoman Darlene Mealy Invite You To Join Us As We MARCH FOR DECENCY Thursday, May 3, 2007 @ 5:30 PM Register Online:Log on to www.nationalactionnetwork.net and register today!

My Comments: Sharpton had little credibility for his verbal attack on Don Imus. In talking head debates (e.g., his debate with Sean Hannity last weekend), libertarians repeatedly accused him of hypocrisy because he's never protested thousand-times-worse language common among black entertainers. This one protest gets him out of that accusation. One should note, however, that Sharpton doesn't blame the rappers and hip-hoppers. No, he blames the corporate executives. Yes, it's the evil rich folks who make the kids buy all that hate- and filth-filled music. That's a liberal's idea of taking responsibility.
