Compare and contrast: Al Sharpton and me
One of them is I’d likely be arrested for attempting to incite if I did what Mr. Sharpton is doing. From the Orlando Sentinel:
Oh, you say, “Mr. Sharpton is only calling for peaceful disobedience.”
Well. As the saying goes, watch what they do and not what they say.
For example, the Sharpton-related Crown Heights riot:
More… disobedience from Mr. Sharpton fell out of the Tawana Brawley rape fraud:
In 1998, Pagones was awarded $345,000 (he sought $395 million) through a lawsuit for defamation of character that he had brought against Sharpton, Maddox and Mason. The jury found Sharpton liable for making seven defamatory statements about Pagones, Maddox for two and Mason for one.
And then there’s the Sharpton involvement in Freddie’s Fashion Mart… disobedience: that only killed eight.
The lesson: race hustling pays out in death and destruction. And sometimes, in personal power for the hustlers.
