Rev. Al Sharpton called “race hustler” by NY Post, but he put the Trayvon Martin case on the national stage

MSNBC Al Sharpton is not a journalist he is an activist, and he has been front and center on the Trayvon Martin case. No he is not the first national news coverage the case received, CBS has that distinction, but he has kept this case in the news. This is not race hustling this is a sincere search for the facts. If this case had not received this kind of coverage we would not be talking about it and George Zimmerman would never have to worry about any legal responses for killing Trayvon Martin.

    I haven’t read the entire article, but it probably says something to the effect of “Al Sharpton is a race hustler, water is wet, and sugar is sweet”

    Sharpton, always keen to find a camera to jump in front of, latched onto this thing and made sure he’s front and center of it. That’s what he does. His sidekick Jesse Jackson has already been on the record calling the state’s “stand your ground” law racist. Really? So if a black man gets attacked and he defends himself, he’s a racist Rev. Jackson?

    Here’s the true indicator of what these two men are: When the cameras are gone and the emphasis is gone and the rest of the world has gone back to the mundane that is life, where will Jackson and Sharpton be? Will they be working in the community to figure out what happened and how to fix it? Will they be working with churches in the community to foster understanding? Will they be engaging local law enforcement and neighborhood watch organizations to find common ground? No, they’ll be looking for more cameras to jump in front of. That’s what they do. And water is wet. And sugar is sweet.
