Al Sharpton knows a good thing when he sees one. Never camera shy, Al seems to pop up at every event whether he is wanted or not and takes center stage.
He gets the headlines because he is willing to be outrageous, something he probably learned from Trump back in the day, but his message always gets lost amid the hyperbole.
He doesn’t care because his true cause is promoting Al Sharpton.
“We are tired of the mistreatment and the violence that we, as Black Americans, have been subjected to for hundreds of years,” Rev. Al Sharpton said in a statement promoting the event.
“Like those who marched before us, we are standing up and telling the police, telling lawmakers, telling the people and systems that have kept us down for years, ‘Get your knee off our necks,’” he said.
“We come to say, we are no longer expendable.”
“We’ve gone from Bull Connor to Bull Trump.”
“It’s time we had a conversation with America.”
“We need to have a conversation about your racism, about your bigotry, about your hate, about how you will put your knee on our neck while we cry for our lives.”
