Al Sharpton

Is Al Sharpton divisive?

Al Sharpton is not only divisive, but many of his intentions are clearly stemmed from a deep distrust and even hate of anything anyone not black (this can also be described as racist). His tolerance for a black criminal like Michael Vick (found guilty) and his CONDEMNATION for the innocent Duke students show how unfair and racist he is. It's too bad that many blacks still choose to listen to this bitter old man along with his partner in "crime" Jesse Jackson. They should really listen to Bill Cosby. What he says has more depth and more "realness". We all know how black folks say they "keep it real". Really? Then listen to Bill, he was actually onto something "real".

Rosa parks did what?

Well she became apart of a Civil Rights movement for Black people in the US, and she effected racism in a huge way. It all began on a bus where Rosa Parks got on the bus and wanted to get to work. She was relaxed, and set in the front seat close to the bus driver. When a white man came in, and asked Rosa Parks to move, she didn't. She simply said, without hesitation, "No."

The man was furious, he told the bus driver, and then he came and threatened her to get off the seat. She said, once again, "No."

That was the beginning of her journey to make a great change in the world. But however, Racism is still a huge worldwide problem till this very day.

Thats all I know, Well I do know more.

Well cya ;P
