Sharpton Marches Against Words He Won't Apologize For

5/3/2007 4:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Reverend Al Sharpton took to the streets of Manhattan today to protest sexism, racism and homophobia in music, however, the soapboxer has a history of firing off blatantly offensive slurs himself -- for which he's reportedly never apologized. Hypocritical?

According to published accounts, Sharpton publicly bashed former NYC Mayor David Dinkins as "a n----r whore," and once referred to his political opponents as "recycled white trash." Sharpton has also never publicly renounced his 1991 inflammatory public remarks against "diamond merchants" -- after which a Harlem mob singled out a random 29-year-old Jewish rabbinical student -- and stabbed him to death.

During a recent debate at the National Action Network Convention, Sean Hannity resurrected the bigoted soundbites from Sharpton's past ... which begs the question: If Imus had been armed with the same research during his face-to-face with the influential Rev, would he still have his job? Too little, too late.

Calls to Sharpton's rep were not returned.

This guy lives off racial disharmony. If there was none, there would be no Sharpton. So if there is none, he makes it up. Simple as that. The real tragedy, is that this is the very best of the black leadership. Mainly because he says what a some people want to hear. It was like the Duke case, it was all B** S*** from the very start, but it was just the message the extreme left wing was salivating for. It fit the template perfectly for the type of reality they believe. And in the end, like their ideology, it all turned out to be a big fat lie.

I have no respect for Sharpton.
I have no regard for Sharpton.
I have no idea why he is such a leader of the black community. In fact , he is in the same catagory as Phelps.

you poor white folks. you poor ,poor long suffering white folks. you all sound as if you were the slaves and we were the slavemasters.lets use a scale to put things in prospective. on one side we lay a feather...to represent all the things we have done to white folk since the 60 s when civil and voting rights were passed to end 600 years of slavery.... wholesale murder ,rape and torture..and the selling away of black folks immediate family members. on the other side of the balance we place a massive 200 ton block of granite..representing all the acts of insanity and evil done to blacks during the years of slavery...jimcrow and habitual deeply imbedded institutional racism.get the picture? after that you can way what you did to the native americans and mexicans.we will get to the vietnamese, timoreans and iraqis and afghanis later.

drow1stbioooooooooooyie... and your ilk..."Blah.Blah.BLah." Get what picture. It is 2007 and there is no room in our society for that kind of mentality. We, all of us, no matter what race ,have come too far to hold on to sour grapes.

Sharpton and his contradictions are on the record. Just a quick google and you can see who he is..and it does NOT matter what color his skin is....he is a hyprocrite. He has said those blatantly offensive slurs.
