Why in Hell is Al Sharpton speaking to the Convention? It ain't like we need a token brother. Ol' Barack spoke last night, eloquently I might add. Why not get somebody serious like Harold Ford (D-TN)? The Reverend Al is a buffoon, a moron, and a narcississtic fool. Trust me, we've put up with him here in NY for the last thirty years. Talk about a sad example of the black community. I'd rather Jesse Jackson, shit, I'd rather Janet Jackson. Are we that scared of Sharpton yelling racism that we're humoring him? Jesus H. Christ, they were debating letting Hillary speak and no one had second thoughts about Sharpton? What the fuck are they thinking?
