Sharpton is a supporter of equal rights for gays and lesbians, including same-sex marriage.
During his presidential campaign in 2003, Sharpton said he thought it was insulting to be asked to discuss the issue of gay marriage.

OP, your complaint is that he talks too loud. I can live with that. Ever heard Chris Matthews? And no, he is not grammatically pristine, but if I listen to someone long enough I can hear mistakes- it's inevitable. English is easy to speak but difficult to speak well. Sorry, I can't help you with the spitting. Sharpton is no fool and many times I have heard him catch someone trying to slip off the hook but he is relentless. He's quite clever and I appreciate watching his footwork. Moreover, he has been a vocal supporter of gay rights and anyone mentioning Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton with regard to that in the same breath is mistaken. I appreciate having him on our side. Now compare Sharpton to someone like George Stephanopoulos, who is well spoken, doesn't yell and probably doesn't spit, but is a bit of an empty suit, and is getting paid millions of dollars. I have watched him make mistakes as an interviewer that Sharpton wouldn't.

Remembering Jesse Jackson, a black guy who understood what whites were really like:
What made the 1988 Jackson candidacy a bomb that had to be defused, then, was not that blacks were supporting a black candidate, but that significant numbers of whites were supportingânot only supporting but in many cases overcoming deep emotional and economic conflicts of their own in order to supportâa candidate who was attractive to them not because but in spite of the fact that he was black, a candidate whose most potent attraction was that he âdidnât sound like a politician.â âCharacterâ seemed not to be, among these voters, the point-of-sale issue the narrative made it out to be: a number of white Jackson supporters to whom I talked would quite serenely describe their candidate as a âcon man,â or even as, in George Bushâs word, a âhustler.â
âAnd yetâ¦â they would say. What âand yetâ turned out to mean, almost without variation, was that they were willing to walk off the edge of the known political map for a candidate who was running against, as he repeatedly said, âpolitics as usual,â against what he called âconsensualist centrist politicsâ; against what had come to be the very premise of the process, the notion that the winning and the maintaining of public office warranted the invention of a public narrative based only tangentially on observable reality.
In other words they were not idealists, these white Jackson voters, but empiricists. By the time Jesse Jackson got to California, where he would eventually get 25 percent of the entire white vote and 49 percent of the total vote from voters between the demographically key ages of thirty to forty-four, the idealists had rallied behind the sole surviving alternative, who was, accordingly, just then being declared âpresidential.â In Los Angeles, during May and early June, those Democrats who had not fallen in line behind Dukakis were described as âself-indulgent,â or as âimmatureâ; they were even described, in a dispiriting phrase that prefigured the tenor of the campaign to come, as âissues wimps.â I recall talking to a rich and politically well-connected Californian who had been, through the primary campaign there, virtually the only prominent Democrat on the famously liberal west side of Los Angeles who was backing Jackson. He said that he could afford âthe luxury of being more interested in issues than in process,â but that he would pay for it: âWhen I want something, Iâll have a hard time getting people to pick up the phone. I recognize that. I made the choice.â
On the June night in Los Angeles when Michael Dukakis was declared the winner of the California Democratic primary, and the bomb officially defused, there took place in the Crystal Room of the Biltmore Hotel a âvictory partyâ that was less a celebration than a ratification by the professionals, a ritual convergence of those California Democrats for whom the phones would continue to get picked up. Charles Manatt was there. John Van de Kamp was there. Leo McCarthy was there. Robert Shrum was there. All the custom-made suits and monogrammed shirts in Los Angeles that night were there, met in the wide corridors of the Biltmore in order to murmur assurances to one another. The ballroom in fact had been cordoned as if to repel late invaders, roped off in such a way that once the Secret Service, the traveling press, the local press, the visiting national press, the staff, and the candidate had assembled, there would be room for only a controllable handful of celebrants, over whom the cameras would dutifully pan.
|by Anonymous||reply 60||09/08/2012|
In fact the actual âcelebrantsâ that evening were not at the Biltmore at all, but a few blocks away at the Los Angeles Hilton, dancing under the mirrored ceiling of the ballroom in which the Jackson campaign had gathered, its energy level in defeat notably higher than that of other campaigns in victory. Jackson parties tended to spill out of ballrooms onto several levels of whatever hotel they were in, and to last until three or four in the morning: anyone who wanted to be at a Jackson party was welcome at a Jackson party, which was unusual among the campaigns, and tended to reinforce the populist spirit that had given this one its extraordinary animation.
Of that evening at the Los Angeles Hilton I recall a pretty woman in a gold lamÃ© dress, dancing with a baby in her arms. I recall empty beer bottles, Corona and Excalibur and Budweiser, sitting around the loops of television cables. I recall the candidate himself, dancing on the stage, and, on this June evening when the long shot had not come in, this evening when the campaign was effectively over, giving the women in the traveling press the little parody wave they liked to give him, âthe press chicksâ wave,â the stiff-armed palm movement they called âthe Nancy Reagan waveâ; then taking off his tie and throwing it into the crowd, like a rock star. This was of course a narrative of its own, but a relatively current one, and one which had, because it seemed at some point grounded in the recognizable, a powerful glamour for those estranged from the purposeful nostalgia of the traditional narrative.

Yeah, I have to lower the volume when Politics Nation comes on, and I wish Reverend Al would do a read-through before going on air, especially for name pronunciations. And he needs to take a more conversational tone with his guests. But you've got to give him credit: his is one of the sharpest on-air minds covering politics.
For instance, most recently during the coventions' coverage, his reveals of the subtexts of the speeches were spot on, even bringing issues to Rachel's attention, and she's rarely slow on the uptake. It was interesting to hear others later take credit for Al's observations.
And he bugs me, too, whenever he name drops his organization, the National Action Network, but I can't imagine the MSNBC lineup without him. Reverend Al's no lightweight (pun aside).

Sharpton's support was for a young girl who claimed she had been raped. What he wanted the American public to acknowledge was the fact that, based on skin color, some women are believed and others not; unfortunately, Tawana Brawley was not to be his Rosa Parks.
As for an apology, would you expect the convicted defendant's attorney to ask for forgiveness for representing her client?

He's obviously made an effort to reinvent himself and he's reeled in quite a few suckers (many of them are on this thread). But I don't buy it. I don't think he gives a fuck about gays. I think he panders to them, but it's an act that a lot of gullible fools seem to have fallen for.
I remember way back there was an incident in New York where an Asian shopowner was being boycotted by blacks because he "disrespected" some black girl who came into his store. The boycotters stood outside his store screaming epithets and carrying signs that said "GO HOME!" It was sheer racism, sheer insanity. A lone black man defied the protesters and patronized the store. For that, he was vilified. He went on Geraldo Rivera; Al Sharpton and some other bag of wind were also on the show (they were in favor of the racist boycott). The poor man couldn't get a word in edgewise; Sharpton and his co-hort were both screaming, waving papers in their hands and WOULD NOT SHUT UP. Finally the poor guy walked out of the studio. Rivera coaxed him back, but I'd had enough by then and turned it off.
Sharpton is untrustworthy, a fraud. He tells people what he thinks they want to hear. Anybody who can't see that is a blind idiot.

R99 is so blinded by bitterness and resentment there's no reasoning with him. It's a good thing that there are far more sensible people in this thread who get it, it's not about "gullible", it's about seeing someone walk the walk and talk the talk. Al is a real liberal/progressive and a strong believer in justice and fairness for all, including the LGBT community. R99 can hate all he wants, but some of us have moved on.

I can be a bit of racist myself, so defending Sharpton doesn't come easily to me. Ever since his involvement in the Tawana Brawley fraud, I've continued to see Sharpton as a charlatan. That said, he far from the worst of his kind on TV. There's not one spokes hole on Fox that is more deserving of never being on TV again.
Sharpton is very small physically and often I feel protective of him when he combating all those oversized conservative wind bags.
Give the guy a break, it's truly amazing how he's managed to become a success after that Brawley episode in the 80's.

I'll admit I was a bit perplexed when he was first hired to fill the 6:00PM spot - and yes he was loud, brooding and generally rough around the edges at first.
But he's grown on me. I like his viewpoints, he's very astute and points out things that most people wouldn't think about or notice - and they end up being important things.
He's articulate, he's generally pleasant to his guests and DOESN'T CUT THEM OFF MID-SENTENCE. He doesn't spend half the broadcast STUTTERING or staring at the camera like a deer in the headlights.
And as for the Tawana Brawley incident, move on people. It happened 25+ years ago. Are you sitting here behind your computer screen saying that people can't change or grow from past experiences, no matter how negative or dark they were? Is he doing similar things today?
People change. But under DL's super-rigid rules I guess they aren't allowed to change, and that any infraction from decades ago is indication that the person is a bad person, NOW - TODAY.

Sharpton is a real panic as he reads from the monitor, accentuating the wrong words in a written sentence, unable to pronounce words correctly,etc. He is over the top at times, his attempts at humor fall flat. He cannot modulate his voice on camera.
I thought of him as a recycled racial controversy chaser with an unsavory history, sort of like an ambulance chaser going after even the most improbable potential lawsuits. That said, I developed a growing regard for him as quite astute during panel discussions on MSNBC coverage of the campaign and election. He brought out points the other pundits missed, and Rachel often agreed with him, even seemed respectfully impressed.
Don't discount him.

I generally enjoy MSNBC starting from 4 pm through 10 pm.
I find Larry O'Donnell not that great as an anchor. And he always has someone filling in for him on Friday show and the shows usually are tapped. If O'Donnell is not able to do live shows on Fridays like the others, MSNBC should think about doing a new show in that spot for at least Fridays only.
Ezra I find extremely boring and thank goodness he's not a regular anchor. He's fine as an analyst for a short segment, but not as an anchor.
I love Martin , Ed, Rachel, Al, and Melissa. Chris Mathews once in a while gets it wrong, but I generally like him.
Also, Mathews's show does not need to re-air at 7 after just having gone off live at 6. Since Soledad O'Brien is leaving CNN, maybe MSNBC can hire her to do a new live show at 7pm.
The Cylce I think is MSNBC's weak link. The show is improving, but I think still comes up short most days.
Chris Hayes, can improve his weekend show. I have no objections to someone being a policy wonk, but like any good professor, a person speaking to an audience needs to learn to present the topics to the audience in an interesting manner. Chris Hayes does not do this most of the time. I would be curious to know what the ratings are for his show.

Employment discrimination, housing discrimination, the prejudice of the criminal justice system; it's just way way too much to bear. How does Sharpton stay on the air with his nightly death to the white man speeches. MSNBC is so offensive, with all those militant colored people they've hired. Fox News is the only channel that's safe to watch. They believe in real American values like truth, honesty and family. I just adore Sarah Palin. That woman is a genius.

Asking for MSNBC to get rid of Al Sharpton would imply he does not meet their standards, MSNBC has no standards. Well I guess you could not be liberal enough, or insist on presenting both sides of the issues. We all know Al Sharpton would not have a problem with these standards. Personally I believe Krystal Ball is too good of a reporter for MSNBC and will get hired by a real news network, and Rachel Maddow will leave and start her own network that will appeal to a larger segment of our population (the 1.7% gay and lesbian).

He's a racist blowhard. Always has been, always will be.
I remember some episode of Geraldo. Thw show was about an African-American man who refused to boycott an Asian merchant's store. Seems the store was accused of "disrespecting" a black girl who went in the store and made some kind of disturbance. Blacks were picketing the store with signs that said "Go Home!" It was total racism, total bigotry. A brave African-American man refused to take part in it, and he was reviled for it. Sharpton and some other idiot on that show were screaming, waving their arms; the poor guy who wouldn't take part in the boycott gave up and walked off the show. Geraldo convinced him to come back, but the guy obviously thought there was no use in trying to shout over a couple of racist wackos.
And that's just ONE instance where Al Sharpton has behaved like a despicable racist asshole.

The Tawana Brawley hoax should not be forgotten. It was a terrible act of fraud, a criminal act. Can you imagine how it must have been for Stephen Pagones, a former district attorney who was accused of raping Brawley? God, what that man must have gone through.
He sued for compensation after it was determined that Brawley's story was a hoax. A jury awarded Pagones a total of $345,000 in damages. Sharpton was found liable for $65,000 of the amount, Maddox for $95,000, and Mason for $185,000. The $65,000 judgment levied against Al Sharpton was paid for him in 2001 by supporters, including attorney Johnnie Cochran plus former businessman Earl G. Graves, Jr. In December 2012, the New York Post reported that Maddox had paid his judgment of $97,000 and Mason was making payments on the $188,000 which he owed.
Pagones had also sued Brawley. She defaulted by not appearing at the trial, and the judge ordered her to pay him damages of $185,000. Brawley reportedly had not made any payments.The following month a court ordered her wages garnished to pay Pagones.
Pagones went on to become an Assistant State Attorney General.
Despite all the evidence that she is a total liar, Brawley (and her stepfather and mother) continue to insist she was sexually assaulted. Her mother said "How could we make this up and take down the state of New York? We're just regular people. We should be millionaires."
As far as I know, Al Sharpton has never acknowledged or taken responsibility or apologized for his role in the Tawana Brawley hoax. I don't think he's apologized for anything he's ever done to stir up racial animosity and violence.

Neither should the racial bias against blacks that exist in our criminal justice system. God knows how difficult it often is for blacks to receive fair treatment and equal justice. Look at the Central Park Jogger case. What a "terrible act of fraud, a criminal act".
[quote]Times Topic: Central Park Jogger Case (1989) The initial story of the crime, as told by the police and prosecutors, was that a band of young people, part of a larger gang that rampaged through Central Park, had mercilessly beaten and sexually assaulted the jogger. The story quickly exploded into the public psyche, fanned by politicians and sensational news reports that served to inflame racial tensions.
[quote]The five black and Hispanic men, ages 14 to 16 at the time of their arrests, claimed that incriminating statements they had given had been coerced by the authorities. The statements were ruled admissible, and the men were convicted in two separate trials in 1990.
[quote]In December 2002, an investigation by the Manhattan district attorney, Robert M. Morgenthau, found DNA and other evidence that the woman had been raped and beaten not by the five teenagers but by another man, Matias Reyes, a convicted rapist and murderer who had confessed to acting alone in the attack. Concluding that the new evidence could have changed the original verdict, Mr. Morgenthau’s office joined a defense motion asking that the convictions be vacated.
Or the Abner Loima Case:
[quote]On August 9, 1997, Louima visited Club Rendez-Vous, a popular nightclub in East Flatbush. Late in the night, he and several other men interceded in a fight between two women. The police were called and several officers from the 70th Precinct were dispatched to the scene. There was a confrontation between the police, patrons and bystanders involved in the scuffle outside the club. The responding patrol officers included Justin Volpe, Charles Schwarz, Thomas Bruder, and Thomas Wiese, among others. In the ensuing scuffle, Volpe was struck by a "sucker-punch" and identified Louima as his assailant. Volpe arrested Louima on charges of disorderly conduct, obstructing government administration, and resisting arrest. Volpe later admitted he was mistaken about Louima being his assailant.
[quote]The arresting officers beat Louima with their fists, nightsticks, and hand-held police radios on the ride to the station. On arriving at the station house, he was strip-searched and put in a holding cell. The beating continued later, culminating with Louima being sexually assaulted in a bathroom at the 70th Precinct station house in Brooklyn. Volpe kicked Louima in the testicles, then, while Louima's hands were cuffed behind his back, he first grabbed onto and squeezed his testicles and then sodomized him with a broom handle. According to trial testimony, Volpe then walked through the precinct holding the bloody, excrement-stained instrument in his hand, bragging to a police sergeant that he "took a man down tonight."

According to trial testimony, Volpe then walked through the precinct holding the bloody, excrement-stained instrument in his hand, bragging to a police sergeant that he "took a man down tonight."
[quote]Louima's teeth were also badly damaged in the attack by having the broom handle jammed into his mouth. He testified to the presence of a second officer in the bathroom helping Volpe in the assault but he could not positively identify him. The identity of the second attacker became a point of serious contention during the trial and appeals. Louima also initially claimed that the officers involved in the attack called him a racial slur and shouted, "This is Giuliani-time" during the beating. Louima later recanted this claim, and the reversal was used by defense lawyers to cast doubt on the entirety of his testimony.
[quote]The day after the incident, Louima was taken to the emergency room at Coney Island Hospital. Escorting officers explained away his serious injuries being a result of "abnormal homosexual activities". An emergency room nurse, Magalie Laurent, suspecting the nature of Louima's extreme injuries were not the result of gay sex, notified Louima's family and the Police Department's Internal Affairs Bureau of the likelihood of sexual assault and battery. The attack left Louima with severe internal damage to his colon and bladder that required three major operations to repair. He was hospitalized for two months after the incident.

The closets he has come is to say that he was a spokesperson for the family and it wasn't his place to ascertain the truth of what they were saying. He worked with what he was told and he believed it.
Take us back to the whole integrity issue. If he had some he would have assessed the position he took and the credibility of his clients. He would have seen that he had a scared young girl in a dysfunctional family, as someone else here noted. They had issues. An inability to tell the truth was one of them.
The impact of their lies on other people's lives matters as much as the desperation of their circumstances.
In addition to everything else, Rev Al is supposed to be a man of God. Most men of God that I have witnessed held a special understanding of human behavior. I have never seen any evidence of that with Rev. Processed Sharpton.

Anytime any leader speaks out for social justice there will always be those who demonize them. Even the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. had those who called him a race baiter and worse. You will still hear and see those racists screaming from the rooftops that those who fight for social justice are pitting one aspect of society against another.. These same racists not only expect but demand leaders who fight for social justice keep their mouth shut.. The favorite attack mode of racists is to turn the tables on those who fight for social justice and call them racists and race baiters..

Al Sharpton looks freakishly like a bobble-head.

Sharpton is nothing but a repugnant joke.

Sharpton is a legend in his own mind. Everything he does is for self promotion. He needs to go away.

Just out............not only does this slime owe back taxes, but Melitha Harris Perry and husband owe $70,000; Toure and wife owe $59,000 and Joy Reid and hubby owe $5,0000. These racists need to pay up or they will wind up like Wesley Snipes.
