One black politician, whom I shall not name, is a dear friend of mine. After he was abusively called the n-word during an uproar at a public meeting, he held meetings with Reverend Al Sharpton. Later on, he told me that he decided to let it go because " what Sharpton is really all about is not justice but money."
Even in this land of free speech we have anti-slander laws, and I am not concretely accusing him of any specific misdeed. But I say this bluntly, I don't trust him. Too many black politicians today use Martin Luther King's mantle but carry on questionable politics. And while "whitey" is blamed for everything, the real losers are ordinary African-Americans whose life goes nowhere.
