If I were to ask you who the top racist in America is, who would you name? I know a number of you would say Barack Obama, but in my opinion, no one is more racist than Al Sharpton. Worse yet is that he earns a six figure salary for his racism.
Sharpton founded the National Action Network which is nothing more than a platform for his racist rants and actions. According to their website:
“National Action Network is one of the leading civil rights organizations in the Nation with chapters throughout the entire United States. Founded in 1991 by Reverend Al Sharpton, NAN works within the spirit and tradition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to promote a modern civil rights agenda that includes the fight for one standard of justice, decency and equal opportunities for all people regardless of race, religion, nationality or gender.”
‘Regardless of race’? Oh really? I’ve seen numerous incidents where Sharpton has gone out of his way to persecute whites for non-existent race crimes.
I recall an incident over 20 years ago where a white retail manager helped his security guard capture and detain a black shoplifter. It took three men to hold the shoplifter down, waiting for the police to arrive. Just prior to the arrival of the police, the shoplifter passed out and later died. An autopsy revealed that the shoplifter died from an overdose of speed. But that didn’t satisfy black activists and within two days, Sharpton arrived in Phoenix and led a protest demanding that the store manager face murder charges. After much persuasion, the charges were filed against the store manage and he was summarily arrested. It took two years before his case went to trial. During that two year period, he was fired from his job, lost his home and his wife divorced him. Eventually he was acquitted and declared innocent, but by that time, his entire life, career and family had been destroyed, all because Sharpton refused to accept the truth and made the issue one of race.
If you recall, Sharpton did the same thing in Ferguson when he again ignored the facts and insisted that Officer Darren Wilson be charged with murder for shooting Michael Brown to death. It didn’t matter to Sharpton that Brown was physically assaulting Wilson, shattering his eye socket in the process. It didn’t matter that Brown was a thug who just robbed a store and refused to comply with police orders to stop. All Sharpton saw was a white man killing a black man. Sharpton didn’t stop even after Wilson had to leave the Ferguson Police Department.
These are only two of many similar incidents where Sharpton tries to make everything a racial issue. Yet, I’ve never seen or heard of Sharpton doing the same thing when a black person murders a white person. If the statement on his website is true, then he should react the same way when it’s black on white crime, but his hypocrisy shines bright when he fails to live by his own statement of ‘regardless of race.’
So how much does Sharpton earn for keeping the fires of racial hatred burning bright?
In 2013, Al Sharpton’s reported pay from NAN was $241,545.
In 2014, Sharpton had Barack Obama, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and then US Attorney General Eric Holder, speak at the NAN 2014 Conference, the largest fund raising event for the racist organization.
Then Sharpton held a huge bash for his 60th birthday in 2014. He raised $1 million at the party. The programs handed out at the party contained advertisements for AT&T, Walmart, Verizon, McDonald’s, GE Asset Management and real estate developer Forest City Ratner.
All toll, NAN reported a record $6.9 million in donations in 2014, exceeding 2013’s donations by over $2 million. For his efforts, Sharpton’s salary went from $241,544 in 2013 to $412,644 in 2014, equating to a 71% increase in pay for being a racist. He also received a bonus of $64,400 in 2014. That’s a lot of money just for promoting racial hatred when he claims to be promoting peace. And what’s really sad is that he has the support of influential politicians and major corporations.
As long as people like Al Sharpton exist, there will also be a racial divide in America. After all, if there were no racial issues in America, Sharpton would have to get a real job to support himself and he’s not about to let that happen.
