Agreed. Both of those guys are complete scum-bags. They are recluse has-beens who hide behind pictures of Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks, and
only come out when an incident gets a massive amount of press.
I'll tell you who will go after them, though. Bill O'Reilly. In an interview last week, he called out Al Sharpton for his "selective" activity.
He also blasted him for not going after the African-American rappers who not only use and glorify, but make a profit on using words like
"nappy-headed hos." Al Sharpton was too much of a coward to even engage in the debate, despite previous claims that he was going to crack down on
rap. He came out of the shadows to put himself and the NAACP on a high-horse, not to do anything meaningful. He is a coward and a liar, Bill Cosby
should have his job, because atleast he has the where-with-all to stand up against the real source of black oppression: the blacks themselves.
I bet MLK is rolling in his grave. He gave his people hope, he opened the door to opportunity. Of Course racism and adversity were and are still
issues, but atleast he gave blacks a realistic chance to follow their dreams. He would be deeply saddened at the rap that influences younger
generations to use and deal drugs, glorifies killing, glorifies jail time, popularizes derogatory terms for women, legitimizes gross mis-appropriation
of funds, etc. I'm sure he would be shaming Imus, but he would have jumped on the "gangster" sect of rap a long time ago. Its a travesty that the
hip-hop culture has evolved into what it is, and its a travesty that the leaders of the African-American people have stood by idly for this long.
