DOUBLE STANDARDS PART II
I’m glad that Don Imus was fired – what he said about the hoop girls was despicable. I mean, he should have been fired just for sporting that awful hair style.
But one thing does bother me – I would hate for his firing to be seen as a feather in Al Sharpton’s hat.
I see Al Sharpton as not only a troublemaker, but also a hypocritical one at that.
Let’s not forget he has gone on record as calling the raped-and-left-for dead Central Park Jogger a “whore” because she said her attackers were black.
Let’s not forget that he has called Jews “diamond merchants” and gays ‘homos”.
Let’s not forget that Sharpton led a protest in Harlem concerning a rent dispute that led/encouraged a man to enter the building and kill himself and seven others.
Let’s not forget his involvement in the lies of the Tawana Brawley case in which he labeled several white officers guilty of the crime - only to discover little Miss Tawana made the whole thing up. He has NEVER apologized to any of these men.
I’m just calling them as I see them dawg.
