Nice post, collie.
I like some things about Sharpton (mostly political) but definitely don't like the way he victimizes black people for his own gain. I have no use for Jesse Jackson.
I personally think the only people who can effectively "go after" these guys are the very people they're taking advantage of. They make their living off of black people's misfortunes and victimization and I think as long as black people feel that what Sharpton and Jackson do is a favor to them, they will go on.
I personally don't care about their racism. I mean, yeah, it's a double standard and yeah, white people get fired for saying some of the same things Jackson, Sharpton and other blacks say, and it's not fair... But life isn't fair. And it doesn't hurt me when they practice racism.
I do believe more and more black people are seeing the truth of these guys. Unfortunately (in my opinion) the exposure of the truth is coming from a political point of view (conservative) instead of a social point of view (accountability) but if that's who ends up exposing these guys for who they really are, then I support it. There is a growing body of black conservatives who I think will end up driving the charge to run these guys out of town on a rail. And I'll be right there cheering them on.
