James Brown was laid out at Harlem's famed Apollo Theater today.

With Al Sharpton standing at the side of his gold coffin, thousands of fans paid their respects to the "Godfather of Soul."

The body will be taken to Georgia tonight for a second viewing and funeral. Brown died on Christmas morning of heart failure at age 73.

James Brown was a talented man and one hell of an entertainer-- a real icon--but like so many superstars, he had a few shortcomings in the "human being" department. What I can't stand is this bullsh*t of Al Sharpton standing there next to his coffin like the eff-ing national guard, cashing in on his death. I don't care if they were bff, Sharpton's just milking the situation for his own personal gain. Makes me sick. The Godfather of Soul "used" to the end...

Al Sharpton makes me ill! Can't this bottom feeder go do something else? There has to be a black woman somewhere accusing rape that needs to be saved. Here's a tip Al, Tawana Brawley and that Duke stripper are not going to get you elected to any type of office......God help New York City if he is ever elected mayor! I'll be the first to head north to Westchester County.

I bet Sh*thead Sharpton rifled thru Brown's pockets to see if there was any loose change.

Can someone, anyone, tell Al Sharpton there is no race problem here that he can take advantage of. Why for the love of God does Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton think they are the black top cops on everything black. There is more scum on both of their hands than anything. Al go run into traffic. Jessie stop impregnanting women who are not your wife.
