Reverend Al -- Jackie Mason's Just Old

3/16/2009 8:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Al Sharpton still respects his elders -- even the ones who call him a "professional racist." In fact, he blames Jackie Mason's age for the entire racially charged mess the comedian got himself into.

Al Sharpton: Click to watch
Even though Mason chose to attack The Rev hours after calling Obama a "Schwartza" this weekend, Sharpton was cool at LAX, clasping his hands together and saying, "At this stage in Jackie's life, we should pray for him."

Amen.

Sharpton needs to worry about praying for himself with all the sins he's committed! He does nothing but promote racism!

Personally I could care less what Al Sharpton thinks. He does nothing for the black community. Everything he opens his mouth about is to benefit himself. I am not one to use racist words. However, no one is going to tell me what words I can and can not use. This is a free country to all, yes even WHITES. So since none of these fools pay my bills, I will use any words I choose.

The Reverend Al has no room to talk. He's as racist as they come.

How is it that during the 1970's, Black was Beautiful. Now Afros seem to be ashamed of their color. Where was the outrage when REVERAND Jackson called candidate Obama a N*****, and wanted to castrate him- a distinctly racist act? Pehaps REV sharpton should go back to his scriptures and re-read the part about plucking the mote from one's own eye....

Really great answer, BUT Chris Rock bashed Bush and so does most of Hollywood. We have to respect each other and be tolerant of different ideas and points of view.

The Rev Al. As usual I have to come here to TMZ to let the knuckledraggers know that you are only hated by whites, like all the black ministers born in this country before and after you, becuase we use the pupit to speak the truth and they have not advanced from their ways of the devil enough to handle the truth. Continue what you do as Dr. King did...as he was called the same thing by the father's and grandfather's of these current devils!

Remeber white people, your people said the very exact things about MLK jr when he was alive, so never put down Rev Al in the face of Rev. King. King was called worse by your fathers! Hypocrites!

let's not forget hyme town that was what presidential candiate Jackson had to say about the Jews when he was running for president. Jackies brother Rabbi Joseph Masa had his house attacked in a cowardly manner by someone with a couple of cans of spray paint leaving all kinds of racial symbols all over his house WHERE WAS THE PRESS THAN his entire house had to be painted again to cover over the garbage left on his house this happen in the early 90's than govenor of new Jersey Jim Florio signed a racial bill into law right in front of Rabbi Masa's house. Rabbi Joseph Masa has since passed away. I lived across the street from him he was one of the finest people I have ever met. Jacki and his family have been on the receiving end of this type of hatred and he is no racist. You can go back and check on this attack of his brothers house it happen on Clark St. in South River, New Jersey I believe the year was 1993. It happen the press didn't care!!!

Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have to keep racisim alive to justify affimative action. racism would slowly die away if these two didnt constantly " throw gasoline on the fire" to keep things stirred up, and maybe if people, black or white were hired and promoted totally based on their qualifications, racism would quickly become history. The media helps promote racism by giving people like Sharpton and Jackson a stage to promote their agenda, these two are not heros by any means, they are antagonists, not the only antagonists, but two of the higher profile. people are human and whether they are black or white will say stupid things from time to time. get over it and quit looking for something to be angry about.

9. This is the world's #1 racebaiter and one reason blacks can't move forward because he wants to make money off them. Al has never found a situation where race isn't profitable. Black America the real problems will never get solved if race gutter rats like Al Sharpton is looked up as some kind warrior for black causes. Black father having babies out of wedlock, stronger family units, education and crime in going unchecked in your neighborhoods are the real problems, not always waiting for someone give you something or just waiting on the rooftops for help. Help yourselves and condemn Jackson and Sharpton as the true sellouts and black nazi's.

Why do whites or other races think Al Sharpton represents all black people. Does all white public figures represent white people? There are blacks that do not like al sharpton either. We as black people are diverse. We dont hold the same values and ideas just like whites dont. And for you Lenny K. to say black fathers having babies out of wedlock is unnecessary because i know and seen plenty of white fathers with kids out of wedlock and there is crime in your neighborhoods also. Why do you act as though all these problems dont exist in the white community. Now that is ignorant.

Al Sharpton is not a racist. He just gives racists a hard way to go. Some of you white folks, I guess because YOU'RE RACIST, can't seem to make the distinction. AND GEORGE BUSH is a cracker - LOL! Proof? KATRINA. I rest my case.

Disgusting    

He couldn't attack Mason as racist because Mason nailed him and took the wind out of his sails. So he had to find some other ad hominem attack instead of intelligently addressing the issue. He's probably saying anti-semitic things off camera. Pathetic

Funny how most of the RACIST terms that are being spewed on these posts are mostly from black people or people posing as black people? Just something to think about!!
