Reverend Al Sharpton has offended many Michael Jackson fans all over the world after making racially-charged allegations that Michael Jackson hasn’t been treated the same as other stars who have died, because he was black.   Read more and see video of Rev Al at Michael Jackson’s memorial below.

Rev Sharpton is under fire for what many consider to be racist statements. But Rev. Al delivered a nice speech at Michael Jackson’s memorial that didn’t seem to be racist. What do you think?

But Rev. Al Sharpton said Sunday at the First African Methodist Episcopal Church of Los Angeles: “I am here because of the disgraceful and the despicable way some elements of the media have tried to destroy the legacy and image of Michael Jackson.”

“You have had other entertainers that have had issues in their life. But you [the media] did not degrade and denigrate them…Show the same respect for Michael and Michael’s family that you showed Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley.”

What do you guys think of Rev. Al   Sharpton’s comments above and his speech at the Michael Jackson memorial? Do you find them racist? See below for photos of Rev Al at Jackson’s memorial.

  1. Not one word of this very inspiring heartfelt and passionate speech was racist.

    As a white woman, I cried when he spoke of how MJ journey broke down barriers, changed culture and brought colors together.

  2. Al Sharpton has a lot to say but when it comes down to it – he’s the racist one. I’m tired of hearing his ignorance – trying to stir up feelings of racism & trying to literally separate people and their feelings. Michael Jackson is a legend – his talent & creativity wasn’t because of his color – and he belonged to and loved EVERYONE. Someone needs to really give Al Sharpton a sense of reality. He really made a lot of Michael Jackson fans annoyed with his “RACE” speech at Michael’s Memorial.

  3. Al is a racist who re-writes history to fit his own agenda. How can he speak about Michael Jackson breaking down entertainment barriers? What about Sammy Davis Jr? What about Little Richard? What about Bod Diddley? Do us all a favor and shut up Al!

  4. MJ spent his life trying to tear down barriers between black and white, and he would be rolling over in his grave (if he actually had a grave) to hear Al Sharptons remarks.

  5. Al is a leach in the worse way, trying to get an extra 10 minutes of fame based on MJ’s death. The bottom line is Elvis, and Frank were not saints but to compare their misdeeds with MJ alleged misdeeds is too much even for al.

    If MJ was white the media would be mentioning the allegations and court cases just like they are now. Think Gary Glitter and Thailand.

    RIP MJ. I loved you….

  6. Even though Mick toughed the heart of many nations and different colors, their were many that came before him that widened that road by the time he came around. I don’t want to take any thing away from mike being white when I heard him for the first time as a kid I knew he had talent along with the whole Family. In my heart he will be missed. He was born to entertain and he did with passion straight from the heart and that is what is needed to write music and he knew how. He will be one of the best entertainers of my life time. There are a lot of great talent in this country that won’t get their music even heard because they don’t know anyone to help them. Even though Mick put his whole heart and soul into what he did and made sure it was up to his standard before he would let it get released because he wanted his best. Not taking any thing from Mike but there were many that came before him in a time that was a lot rougher then what he went through. Just a few Smkoie, Diana,Jakie Robinson, the Temtations with Otis williams,Paul Williams,Eddie Kendricks.Melvin {Blue} Franklin and David rufin. They all went through a lot of racism but brought use some if not the best music ever made and me as a white man Motown made the best music to me that will every time I hear it goes straight to my soul, Thank you Barry Gordy for a Motown. There are so many more that I am sorry I did not write down because of room and I would not want to miss any of you for the joy,sadness, happiness and togetherness and to only pick out one of these greats does not give credit to all that you have done.
    For Al Sharpton to bring up racism during Micks Funeral was no other then shameful. Yes Micks music brought a lot of whites together with African Americans because music crosses all boundaries and you put aside of who,what and of what color they are. The one thing I would like to know why when such a tragedy affects us all does racism have to at one point in his funeral does it need to be brought out. I would rather remember Mick as a great performer that so many people in this whole world broke down those barriers.
    Al Sharpton every time he hears of some type of tension between our to cultures does he show up and instigate the situation, It seems as if he won’t be happy until are two cultures finally clash. I remember and forgive me if I spell it wrong Tiwana Brawly when she accused some N.Y.C Police officers kidnap her and raped her and defecated on her and tortured her well Al came to town and his words were almost wanting the African community to turn into vigilantes. Then come to find out she lied about those fine men and Al seemed just slip away. I do not want one person to have that much control over so many people and then have them fallow him and his anger and do things they would regret because they left it up to him to tell them the truth about these types of situations but there have been a lot of times he jumps in without what really happen and he just can’t wait to get in front of the cameras to start his yelling which always starts peoples blood boiling to were they want revenge, which I don’t blame them if what he said really happened.
    Micks funeral was no place for racism because people of all cultures loved Mike.
    Mike so many times I would sit and listen to the radio and hear you come on and just me mesmerized by your talent and then later in years seeing how pure you were and could tell you were doing your thing from the heart. Thank you for all the years of joy, sadness and all the emotions that we as people in counter. There are no words in the dictionary to express the loss I have felt over you leaving us and to know we won’t be able to hear new music that you would give to the world. I know that our Father in heaven has had you do what you do best and stand before his great present and perform in front of the best audience you ever performed for. I know some day when he comes for me I will finally be able to meet such a genius.
    To the jackson Family I am so sorry for your lose I wish I could do some thing to make you happy but I know this is not the time, you have not had enough time to grieve.

  7. You all are taking this thing way too seriously. I have my own negative opinions about Al Sharpton too, but his speech was totally true and in no way racist. It is apparent that Michael Jackson was black, regardless of what color his skin was when he died. All Sharpton was saying was that MJ broke the color barrier in many aspects of life and helped to pave the way for blacks to gain some recognition in their talents. Sharpton’s whole speech was about the love that MJ taught all of us to have with one another, so why are you all hating him for what you think he implied?

    To Paul: It may be true that those you mentioned were black, but they didn’t get nearly as much recognition as MJ did, and they never will. You seem to forget that there was a time that blacks had to fight just to vote, let alone get recognition for inventing Rock & Roll like Little Richard did. You can ask a million people to this day who invented Rock & Roll and they may say Elvis Presley. You also seem to forget that the first video by a black person played on MTV was “Thriller.” Is that not completely breaking the color barrier in entertainment?

    To someone: what you said was exactly what Sharpton was trying to get across. And no MJ would not be turning over in his grave because MJ and his entire family have been friends with Sharpton for over 30 years. MJ called Sharpton personally to help him when his last album didn’t sell, so he knew what kind of remarks Sharpton makes.

    And to John Motley: Sharpton doesn’t need MJ to gain fame, he already had it, whether it was positive or negative. You obviously knew he existed before MJ’s memorial service, so why should it matter now?

  8. He is a extreme racist. If anyone even questions him about it, he calls them a racist. He loves to bring up past wrong doings to the black race but wants everyone to get past all his past mistakes ( Twana Brawley, Duke Lacrosse). He puts race into everything. As long as the black community allows him and Jesse Jackson to be their voices , discrimination will never go away.

  9. Elvis and Frank? Come on. Misdeeds? Elvis married a child – involved with her before she was 13. Can you say child molestation? Fact not allegation. Sinatra – involved with the mob, etc, etc, etc. Get real.

  10. Gloria I believe you are confusing Elvis with Jerry Lee Lewis. Elvis met Priscilla when she was 14 and he was 22. Elvis did not touch her until their wedding night, when she was past the age of 18.

    Frank, Elvis, and MJ were not saints and we all know this. As for the child molestation charges, will we ever know the truth? Hopefully we will. Al Sharpton is always talking shit about race and stirring up past hurts and encouraging separation of races. I don’t think his speech was racist, just a little phony. MJ was an innovator and achieved heights that no one of any color ever did or ever will again. Al Sharpton comes off as an arrogant, unhappy man who knows he can get attention(which he craves), for taking about race relations, and making a point system for a person’s achievements which often have nothing to their color, or ethnicity in this case. Al Sharpton may have his good points, however telling MJ’s children that the man was not strange was- first, an unnecessary and inappropriate comment, and a blatant lie. MJ WAS STRANGE. However he was the BEST entertainer ever. I loved him since I was a kid and I think like most fans, became conflicted listening to his music after the 2003 allegations. Lets hope Al Sharpton will speak out against racial hatred when it is obvious, and use his influence to preach tolerance, respect, and loving coexistence for all. He should tone down his harsh delivery, this was a memorial service not a street rally.

  11. What makes Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson think they are a Reverend? Reverend is defined as “a spiritual leader of the Christian Church.” Do they have any official training? I haven’t looked but they probably don’t. They are just a couple of jerks living off the misfortune of others. Time and time again we see them going somewhere stiring up people over race issues. I say to both of them, “Get a Life”.

  12. Lola, let’s say you’re correct, Elvis met Priscilla when she was 14 and he was 22, which isn’t correct, but let’s just say it is. What possible interest would a 22 year old man have in a 14 year old girl? Maybe that makes it more palatable. It’s child molestation.

    With regard to MJ, what parent would settle out of court if they knew for a fact that their child was molested by anyone? I know I’d never agree to a settlement. You never sell out your child. No matter who it was. And the second allegation/trial was just a crock of s—. But the media, as usual, had already labeled him. They were relentless with regard to MJ, and they still are. Sharpton didn’t say anything that already hasn’t been said, and if not said, thought of. You don’t hear the outrage when Limbaug and his cronies spew out their brand of racial hatred in the media and on the airwaves. That’s acceptable because he’s speaking for the majority, I guess. You don’t have to like what Sharpton said. That’s his reality and the reality of many others who look like him. And with the country’s current climate, yes, I think everyone needs to be reminded. This poor man is dead. You don’t have to like the way he lived his life. I’m sure if we delve into everyone’s private lives, we’ll find something objectionable, unpalatable or, you know, maybe even STRANGE. And yes, his comments were appropriate because they were shared by MJs family and friends. It was their memorial.

  13. Wow……I can not believe such negative interpretation of reality. A great man once said “it is funny how far we have come BUT yet, how far we got to go”. Al Sharpton is not a racist. He is nothing but a messenger. He is a man (And please noted what I had just said “A MAN”: not a BLACK MAN) who lived through the hard times of our nation “Segregation”. He is also man who experience sitting at the back of a bus allowing another man “EQUAL” to take the front seats (must I go on). I do not believe in politics nor can I dictate a textbook that I have not opened. I believed in seeing is believing – who knows it feel it. Please my brother and sisters of all nations we have lost an ICON. Sometimes in life things are taken for granted and the true message is often blinded. However, we often appreciate those cases when they come out into reality. Michael Jackson is one of those cases. Let’s look at a few more Martin Luther King, Elvis Presley and even the SWINE FLU. Today we have streets and cities named after Martin Luther King. Elvis Presley is now bigger than ever before kids 5 years old are singing and listening to his music all over the word. SARS and SWINE FLUE outbreak was not a major concerns until death occurred now people all over the world are wearing mask and are a far more cautious. Michael Jackson’s death made us realized what we have all taken for granted and opened our eyes to what he have done or was apart of. In reality, if he was still with us today a lot of us may very well classified him as a child molester but his death made us all aware of what we have taken for granted. Al Sharpton reminded us and in his own word he thanks him. For those who believed Al Sharpton is racist starting with you I’m asking you to change your ways if you wanna make the world a better Place and take a look at yourself, and then make that change. Michael did and Al Sharpton witnessed it.

  14. Richard-beautifully said.

    Gloria check your facts about Elvis- I could be wrong, but I remember the ages from reading his biographies and Priscilla’s book. A forty something year old man sleeping with male children, and an adult male admiring a female teenager and not acting on it, instead dating other women until Priscilla was of age, is not the same thing. Disturbing -yes-but not the same thing. SInatra having friends who were mobsters is not the same thing. I do not agree with anyone, from any race, spewing racial hatred. Of course we all have our differences and opinions on the way others live, however looking at Michael Jackson’s life and what he did to his face, not to mention the weird behavior, and saying it is not strange, and comparing to others to prove a point is ridiculous. Just because you would never agree to a settlement does not mean another parent would do the same. There are parents out there that exploit their children in unimaginable ways.

    I’m conflicted about the allegations about Michael Jackson and I agree with you about the media. But I must say this-it is a fact that Rush Limbaugh is often criticized in the media for his views, and always made fun of for his weight and substance abuse issues. MJ brought my family such lovely memories, dancing to his records over and over. MJ was one of a kind. I stand by my statement that Al Sharpton was phony when saying Michael Jackson was not strange. I feel that if he wished to comfort MJ’s children about the public’s comments or perceptions about their father he should have done so privately. They are grieving children, and should be consoled in a gentler manner- we all know what that they will never be left alone again in their lives by the media. Poor things.

    We are both-along with every other American entitled to our own opinions and allowed to disagree. I wish you well.

  15. Gloria-check your facts about Elvis and Priscilla’s ages. I am not wrong. It was disturbing that she was so young however he waited until she was of age AND until after they were married before acting sexually. Sinatra having friends who were mobsters is also not a fair comparison to the allegations against MJ. AND every public figures’ dirty laundry is mentioned when they die. From presidents to actors.

    Also check your facts on Rush Limbaugh-he is constantly criticized in the media for his views, his weight, his drug addiction, etc. MJ was strange and I stand by my opinion that Al Sharpton was phony to say he was not. If he wanted to bring comfort to MJs children he should have done it privately at the family’s private memorial. That was a public memorial for his fans to say goodbye with the family. MJs children are grieving, and should have been spoken to in a much gentler tone, let alone having the words “strange” and “your daddy” put in the same sentence in front of millions of people. Poor kids. The media is never going to leave them alone. MJ got a fitting tribute and possibly made people realize how this country builds someone up then tears them down. How we can love and appreciate a person yet be unsure or disagree with their private life, both so passionately? It is not racist to discuss a person’s weird behavior, his legacy, or controversies. Comparing Michael Jackson’s strange behavior is different from comparing to others because his was extreme.

    Gloria just because you would not accept a payoff for your child does not make it so for everyone. There are parents who exploit their children in unimaginable and horrible ways.

    We are all entitled to our opinions. I wish you well.

  16. OK… Unless audio changes daily we all heard the same speech, He spokeabout Michael’s accomplishments from beginning to end, and what were some of the results from Michael’s energy and efforts. Now I didn’t hear any sort of racist remark during that speech, but i did hear alot of comforting words for the children of Michael, the family and the millions of fans waiting to hear.. A racist speech…No, a loving speech…Yes. If you doubt what I’m saying.. watch the family’s responce afterwards.

  17. If white people made a comment “One Of Ours” In a speech The Revs would see to it someone was fired. If the Revs didnt keep racism going they would be out a job.I’m so tired of of blacks being able to say things like, Black College Fund,All Black Hair Salon,Product for Black people,Products for colored people,then when Michael Jackson passed it was he was one of us, our people, our kind etc etc etc. When you see Flooding,Tornadoes,Hurricanes etc. in Areas of Black people who is usually their to help, (NOT THE REVS) look around in the pictures and you will see mostly white people.So who is Racist!!!

  18. Lola, Lola, why didn't you say you were in the bedroom when Elvis and Pricilla first consummated their marriage, relationship, or whatever it was? I stand corrected.

    You quite obviously have a problem with comprehension or maybe you just glaced at my comments. Whatever the case may be, it's all good. :)

    Anyway, I love you Al Sharpton. Your speech was not racist. It was heartwarming and honest. Keep doing what you're doing. And I love you even more MJ. You were a kind, gifted, compassionate, and gentle soul. Thank you for sharing your amazing gift with the world.

  19. Gloria – Read Priscilla's autobiography. Or try wikipedia.com. Or an Elvis bio, whatever rocks your boat. Thats not the point really-although there are parallels, an Elvis and MJ comparison is not fair- for one thing the media is completely different nowadays than in the 60's and 70's. Gloria only a person who is threatened, defensive, or petty resorts to personal attacks and condescending tones.

    Where you in the bedroom when MJ allegedly molested young boys?

    Read Maureen Orth-CSI Neverland, and article for Vanity Fair.

    Do your research before you debate. I only corrected a misstated fact by you.

    You are right It's all good.

  20. Gloria, Lola and everybody making comments in a moment like this.

    People are you to judge, God is the only one who could judge us.

    Michael Jackson, was and always will be a great human been, who came to this world to make us laugh, and enjoy moment of happiness with his music.

    His time was short in earth, now he is in heaven making everyone laughing and dancing up there.

    I am going to miss him, I came to this country when I was 13, today I am 40, I learn My english thru his music and madonna's.

    I love him

    By the way people stop the racist thin, black abolition is over many years ago, all you are doing is making a big deal out of nothin.

    this guy al has nothing better to do that to speak in MJ Memorial, he found this a perfect oportunity to speak his anger against the white community.

    black, white, latinos, every body are going to the same place when we die, so stop talking so much sh—- and respect MJ we all are mourning.

    his family my respect, but i dont believe in their tears, they are crying because money maker left, now they are looking to see if there is anyway to get money out of MJ DEATH.

    MJ IS BETTER OFF WHERE HE IS RIGHT NOW, WITH GOD, WITH JESUS, NO PAIN, NO SUFFERING, HE IS HAPPY, HE IS SINGING, HE IS ENJOYING HEAVEN.

    LET HIM REST PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

    AND STOP MESSING WITH ELVIS PLEASE

  21. All I have to say is that everything is about black and white with good ol' Al. I understand that he is a supposed Civil Rights Leader and all but give it a rest. The real people that hinder any minority from getting beyond their skin color are these supposed Civil Rights Leaders. I myself am of Asian descent and I tell you this, I refuse to let anyone hold me back from being successful. The only person losing out is the ignorant SOB that doesn't hire me or treats me any differently because of being asian. Stop giving us minorities a bad name Al. Oh and what is up with all of these breaking the barriers of black and white. Did Michael not get surgery and bleaching done to be more white. HELLLLOOOO people wake up. He himself was ashamed of who he was. I am a firm believer that he was a pedophiler and in the ame way that OJ was guilty. He was a great entertainer but a troubled individual personally. He needed help that he never received. Why else would he build a giant play ground at his residency??? Any sane person would have donated for a play ground to be built for any child to enjoy in the public eye not in the safe haven of his home. Hmmm, maybe a little too much common sense. For all of you supposed anti-racist people out there, you are more racist then the people you disdain. Get over it and live your lives. Not every white person is a racist same as not every black person is a thug or every asian great at math.

  22. BLACK, WHITE, LATINOSR OR ASIAN, STOP TALKING SO WITH ANGER TOWARDS OTHERS THAT YOU DONT EVEN KNOW PERSONALLY, YOU ONLY HEARD WHAT THE NEWS SAID, GOSSIP.

    BLACK, WHITE LATINOS, OR ASIAN, REMEMBER WE ARE HUMAN BEEN, WITH RED BLOOD INSIDE OUR VEINS.

    WHEN WE DIED WE ARE GOING TO BE IN THE PRESENCE OF OUR LORD AND THERE YOU WILL HAVE TO EXPLAIN, WHY THAT ANGER WHEN HE GAVE HIS LIFE FOR US AND HE FORGIVE WHO DIDNT BELIEVE IN HIM.

    I AM VERY PROUD TO BE CUBAN-AMERICAN I AM WHITE BECAUSE MY SKIN IS WHITE, BUT I LOVE BEEN AROUND EVERY KIND OF SKIN, BECAUSE YOU DONT DIVIDE THIS WORLD FOR THE COLOR OF THE SKIN.

    I MARRIED A LATINO, FROM ECUADOR, AND HIS SKIN IS WHITER THAN MINE, AND OTHER PEOPLE IGNORANT PEOPLE CALL MY HUSBAND INDIAN, WHAT HAPPEN TO LATINOS HE IS FROM ECUADO, AND HE IS WHITE.

    SEE THIS COUNTRY HASNT REALISE THAT RACIST STOP YEARS AGO, WHEN WE GO AND FILL UP A CONTRACT OR ANY LEGAL DOCUMENTS OR JUST A REGULAR DOCUMENT, OR GO REGISTER YOUR KIDS TO SCHOLL, THERE IS ALWAYS THIS THING OF WHAT IS YOUR RACE, BUT THAT IS NOT ENOUGH AND THEY KEEP ASKING WHERE YOUR PARENTS ARE FROM…BLA BLA BLA…

    STOP WITH THIS BULLSH…. WITH ALL YOUR RESPECT STOP THIS, YOU ARE MAKING OUR KIDS GROWING IN A WORLD OF HATE AND RACIST.

    THEY DONT HAVE TO KNOW WHAT HAPPEN YEARS AGO!!!!, WHAT BRING PAIN TO THEIR LIFE!!!,

    IT IS TRUE THAT YEARS AGO THINGS FOR BLACKS WERE BAD, BUT FOR LATINOS AND ASIAN, ITALIAN, CHINESE FOR EVERYBODY TOO, NOT ONLY BLACKS.

    WHEN A BLACK GO TO JAIL OR A BLACK IS BEEN KICK OUT OF SCHOOL, OR A CLUB, IS BECAUSE IS RACIST.

    PLEASE GET OVER THIS ALL READY, STOP FEELING SORRY FOR YOURSELF.

    WHITE, LATINOS, ITALIAN, CHINESE EVERYONES GO TO JAIL IF THEY DONE SOMETHING WRONG, OR IF THEY BEEN KICK OUT OF SCHOOL OR CLUBS ECT. I MEAN NOT ONLY BLACK ARE BEEN FOLLOW BY THE LAWS OR BY GOSSIP, OR BY RACISM, EVERYBODY PEOPLE EVERYBODY.

    IT IS IN OUR HANDS,WE NEED TO STOP THIS BULLSH… I DONT WANT MY KIDS AROUND PEOPLE WITH ANGER OR HATE, OR RACIST.

    MY KIDS KNOW THAT EVERYONE ARE EQUAL, REGARLESS THEY SKIN COLOR, OR LANGUAGE.

  23. Al Sharpton is certainly a racist, but his speech wasn't as bad (as racist) as I expected it to be. I wish he hadn't said to the children that there was nothing weird about their daddy. Prince is old enough to know that Michael WAS weird (in the best of ways…I love MJ.) It's bad enough thta he is morning the loss of his father, but at his age I fear this will bring conflicting feeling for him. The family speeks a lot about Paris and Blanket, but rarley mentions Prince…I hope he is getting the suppot he needs. RIP MJ! You are loved and missed.

  24. Why would anyone give Al Sharpton credence at all.!

    The 1987 Tawana Brawley hoax. . . then,the hoax leading to racial hate against a Jewish driver who accidentally hit and killed a black child. He led a mob yelling “no justice,no peace” and “kill the Jews”.. The driver stabbed by a black guy [who was never even charged with murder]and died.

    The “Freddie Fashion Mart” He incited another mob because a Jew owned a clothing store in Harlem The Sharpton led protest, led to 4 workers of the store killed..then store set on fire. 8 more died.

    He deserves no respect.

    A reverend?…God will not treat him kindly.

    Will he scream "racism" when God sends his soul to Hell..?

  25. Those negative comments about a man who was the greatest entertainer and surpassed all boundaries. Just shut the hell up!!!!

  26. Somebody once said (and I'm paraphrasing slightly) that the only way to defeat racism is to stop talking about it. Yes, racism exists, but not to the extent that Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would make it out to be. By their standards the vast majority of the world is racist… Unless of course you happen to be black, since there is no such thing as a racist black person. I didn't hear Al Sharpton's speech at Michael Jackson's funeral because frankly (and contrary to Sharpton's belief) I think the media covered the whole ordeal in too much depth and for far too long. It was amazing how one man formerly considered despicable and accused of molesting children (and yes, we all know he did, don't lie to yourself) was all of a sudden glorified to be this great man. Sure, he made some incredible music and yes he was the King of Pop and one of the greatest entertainers of our lifetime and that will never be taken away from him. But the fact is, he was given much more media attention (maybe both positive and negative, but certainly positive) after his death than did any other celebrity of my lifetime that I can remember. I stopped watching the news for an entire month because that's all they showed. And why? Because we're all racist, especially the media? No, because the media is an industry that is driven by profits. Yes, the almighty dollar, not racism or any other factor that Al Sharpton or any other artificial civil rights leader would claim. Gone are the days of true civil rights leaders who actually believed the words that were coming out of their mouths. Those who fought true injustice and were prepared to sacrifice to achieve the greater good, not only of "their people" but for the human race. Yes, gone are the days of the Martin Luther King, Jrs., the Ghandis, the Medgar Evars and countless others too many to name that truly fought racism. And here are the days when these faux civil rights leaders like Al Sharpton only prolong and stoke the fire of racism that is trying to die out with every inflammatory comment that comes out of his mouth. Do I think Al Sharpton is a racist? Possibly, but that's not my place to judge, most certainly he is prejudice. And Martin Luther King, Jr. Would be rolling over in his grave if he knew what the "honorable reverend" Al Sharpton was doing to continue to divide this country. It's time to move on, past race relations and focus on more important issues that our country and world faces, because alone we can only do so much, but together we can make a world of difference.
