Right wingers, including those on this forum, nearly always label Jackson and Sharpton as racists, no matter what the situation.
You don't see the irony in this?
Those individuals, although outspoken, can't be compared to the racially motivated one trick ponies Sharpton and Jackson. Their politics are always based entirely on race and you can't say the same thing about the other personalities, although they are motivated by other things. I am talking purely about race here and not politics.
Sharpton and Jackson are racists period, although the media won't admit it. Maybe being white I am ignorant to how a black person feels when racial issues come up, but that doesn't give them the right to ACT ignorant. It seems everyone is using justice for Trayvon as an excuse to escape blame for taking their indirectly channeled racial hatred out on some unsuspecting white individual. How many times is this going to happen before we wake up and stop giving free passes to people who can't control themselves?
Hey it's not like the Jews started attacking their enemies and taking over countries after WWII using the holocaust as an excuse to escape blame....
My theory on the general public is that they're like mushrooms, they thrive when you feed em $hit and keep em in the dark.
