Al Sharpton Confesses He Was in Over His Head in Chicago: 'I May Not Be an Expert on City, But I Know Trump'

    Sharpton is way over his head when it comes to any solutions that affect the African American community. He, like Obama before him, is a community activist not an organizer. He is enriching himself by speaking out against the Republican administration's successful efforts to end the slavery of the Black Americans to the the Democratic welfare system that stifles their advancement, hinders their education efforts and attempts to keep them on the plantation voting Democrat at every election opportunity while ignoring them the rest of the time. A tougher stance on immigration will weaken the gangs controlling the streets. Providing meaningful productive jobs will lessen the appeal of the drug trade. Encouraging two parent family values will mean more discipline and positive reinforcement for kids to get the most out of education, whether it's public, parochial or private. Forcing welfare recipients to get jobs and submit to drug tests will lessen fraud and free up monies for job training, childcare and craftsman grants.

      Norm-dealing drugs, carjacking and pimping are jobs.  Oh, you mean real non-violent, tax paying jobs.  Under Obama, food stamp reciepents increased by 37%.  How un-American having to give up such a benefit would be.  Obamacare has a large built in increase for every year.  More and more on the public dole at the expense of those working and struggling.

    Sharpton is a slick-talking criminal himself, a man who incited so much violence in Brooklyn that innocent people were killed, who has stood on the side of violence throughout his bloviating, big-mouth "career," a man who still has not paid his income taxes -- we are to heed what this guy says?!

      Obama's favorite White House guest..never once arrested and jailed for what probabbly is over $6 million in owed Federal taxes. Hussein loves those Federal convicted criminal race riot instigators and dividers of race. MLK is shaking his head in disgust at these two maggots.

    Interesting. . . He never seemed to have a problem with how his buddy Obama dealt with Chicago, yet the city got continually worse while he was in charge. . . Obama was a community organizer . . . FROM CHICAGO . . . he never fixed any of it . . . Why hasn't "Big Mouth" Al said anything about that?

      @B:  Not only did Sharpton have no problem whatsoever with Obama ignoring Chicago's ever escalating crime stats, he also left office with race relations far worse then they were when he was elected 8 1/2 years ago. He had Sharpton and BLM at the White House while not supporting the police and while speaking out about cop shootings BEFORE all the facts were known. Nothing, not one word when EVIDENCE showed that the shooting was justified. Unfortunately some minorities, especially those who believe BLM represents them, do not believe ANY cop shooting is justified. Nonsense. It is statistically impossible for all shootings to be bad. 

      Sharpton is right that education, economics, etc. need to be fixed in ghettos across the country. However, those are long term fixes which we of course should tackle and the sooner the better. However and meanwhile something has to be done to stop the killings and if sending in the military is the answer, then so be it. Stupid adults shooting each other is one thing but all too often innocent bystanders, including children, are also shot. I'm capping this for emphasis since so many including Shapton apparently (whom I'm betting has a carry permit) think gun control is the answer: CHICAGO HAS STRICT GUN LAWS YET THE STATS GROW AND GROW SOME MORE. Gun control is NOT the answer since the Chicago shooters have guns in spite of the law.

    What have Sharpton and other loud mouthed black leaders done to help the situation?

      Joyce, you ask a question many of us often ask. Sharpton has been on the scene forever yet I doubt one situation could be found which he improved. Ever wonder why he doesn't appear at all such shootings like he did in Ferguson? It was reported that when he appears with a family who loses someone due to a police shooting such as in Ferguson, that family has to sign an agreement to pay him a percentage of the money they get. He gets away with it because he's an attorney and because no one wants to call him out and be labeled a racist and believe me Sharpton would go on and on and on! It would appear that part of the healing process or getting ahead process or whatever label one puts on it would be calling out charlatons like Sharpton. It is hard to see how his claiming to be representative of his people is at all helpful to his people.

      Very well stated, Al Sharpton has made a career of exploiting people from every walk of life.  The innocent men involved in the Twana Brawley case spent fortunes defending themselves against totally fabricated charges.  No apologies..... He and Jessee Jackson went into a school district where seven stundents were expelled after they attacked a number of spectators at a footbal game calling it racism without knowing anything of the circumstances.......then a video of the incident was released to the press....these young men ran through the crowd randomly punching and attacking people...he left...no apology...Any venue he visits he leaves chaos where people need order and security.....when people need comfort and assurance...he brought violence and confusion....he does not know shame or remorse... he is an apex predator....

    Sharpton should really know about criminal activity inasmuch as he doesnt like to pay his taxes.  He is an inventerate Con Man, charleton, and just down right sleezy.  Time to drop the hammer on him:  Arraign him; subject him to a jury trial; lock him up.

      I'll put a $100 down that says a well monitored DNA test will show neither of those kids have the DNA from either Hussein Obama or Michael _________ Obama.

    Sharpton is a clown who keeps getting richer as his people " keep getting poorer. He makes money with his big do nothing mouth. He knows nothing but attacking Republicans and supporting Obama 110%.

    A tax dodger is not credible.   For eight years Obama neglected his promises to make Chicago better.  Black voters gave Obama their votes but nothing happened.  The mayor who served under Obama also neglected his duties and instead concentrated on illegals.  Illinois is on the brink of bankruptcy.

    Hey Sharpton, why don't you shut your tater trap for a while and concentrate on paying up all the taxes you owe to the IRS and the state of New York? You got a pass through Obama, your pass will be rescinded soon and you will be scrambling to pay up or wear an orange jumpsuit for a while....

    Guess what, Al Charlatan, we tried to run Obozo out of the white house for 8 years, but like the hemorrhoid that he is, he is just as annoying and hard to get rid of.  Hey "Reverend", why don't you just shut the f*ck up and go cry in your beer with Tawana Brawley?

    He owes the government money, tries to start trouble, has no solutions.  Obama's mother in law was paid more than most people make in a year to babysit her own grandchildren.  ??

    Big AL, how do you know that Mrs. Robinson didn't have access to classified material? She lived in the WH the entire term of the Obamas and surely picked up plenty of information. Mr. Trump's relatives should scale it back a little and just operate in an advisory capacity only. Sharpton should stay out of politics as he is one corrupt individual!

    This is the reason democrats love the inter cities. Keep them in poverty and blame others for it. Give them just enough to survive and you'll have power forever. Held with invisible chains easily seen from outside the city, but well camoflauged within it. People may wake up, but by than, it will be to late for many. It's sad to see those elected to serve only serve their selves. Blaming individuals by names does nothing, for it's a well ran system for over 75 years the democrats have ran this scam. Until the voters awaken, nothing will improve. Many think there's money in the city, but many come back to the smaller towns more broke than when they left. Having a good job, but thief and cost of living took it all.  A friend of mine has lost hundreds of thousands worth of tools and supplies.  With the murder and drug rate, the police will do nothing about thief, leaving the wolves free to feed off the hard working people.  I wouldn't live in a big city for any amount, much less what you actually have at the end of the year from the game they play in the cities.

    Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Maxine  Waters et all are a bunch of blowhards and an embarrassment to the black community. Sadly, they continue to listen to these idiots who continue to remind their followers of the ills of anyone who is not black. Reminiscent of Adolf Hitler behavior.

    It is not our responsibility to entertain these thugs.  Where are the parents?  They need to be taught personal responsibility.  Fight fire with fire.  Gun fire if necessary.  I'm sick of these people running their mouths acting like the criminals themselves are not the problem.
