Sharpton and Jesse can both be a pain in the ass and may even be as hated by the right wing as Imus, but how come when Al and Jesse attacked Imus, the right wing lauded their opinions like they suddenly became pundits.
Al and Jesse called for the sponsors to cancel Imus and they did.
Now, I can't wait to hear if Al and Jesse or any of our concerned leaders will ever demand that those same sponsors cancel any stations who carry RAP attacks on women. When they do that I would feel that they are sincere..
So far none of our black leaders have called for such a boycott. None of them have ever even mentioned that in the last two weeks O'Reilly has used the term "wetback" over and over in mean spirited attacks on the Mexican population. By their silence both Jesse and AL and others seem indifferent to another minority? Who is there to fight for the Hispanics? No one so O'Reilly can and will go on calling them Wetbacks...
We as a country are becoming more two faced by the hour.
Imus said a hateful thing and has been punished.
Rush, O'Reilly, Hannity , Coulter and Savage say much worse very day. They not only attack the ethnic background but the patriotism and integrity and motives of good honest Americans...
Where is the outrage? Where are the sponsor cancellations? Don't hold your breath.
AS LONG AS THOSE PROPAGANDISTS SHOW A PROFIT AND HOLD TO THE RIGHT WING "PARTY LINE" they can and will say anything without fear of reprisal.
And those Americans who O'Reilly calls " Wetbacks" don't have a lobby or an NAACP to fight for them and call for sponsors to cancel O'Reilly... Pity... Gawd Bless America
