Even though we are happy that someone is stepping to the plate to help us get media coverage to voice our concerns on issues that affect our race, but why do non-black people think Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are the elected “representatives” for Black America? As soon as they do something wrong or politically incorrect they run to them and ask for forgiveness. Example, Micheal Richardson and Don Imus both ran to Jesse and Al as soon as they realized they were in hot water.
Why do you think so? and how can we let them know that dropping by Al Sharpton television show and apologizing does not warrant forgiveness. Why do they think we need a leader? Can’t we lead ourselves?
