Al Sharpton

I'm Organizing a Boycott If the NBA Does Not

Suspend Donald Sterling TODAY

4/28/2014 5:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

042814_al_sharpton_launch Things are about to get real serious for the NBA ... Al Sharpton tells TMZ Sports he's planning on contacting the NBA's major advertisers to get them to pull their sponsorship if the league does not suspend Donald Sterling ASAP.

Sharpton spoke to our photog Sunday afternoon at LaGuardia Airport, where he called on the NBA to take immediate action against Sterling ... since the Clippers owner has not denied making the racist remarks published by TMZ Sports.

Sharpton used very pointed language, saying, "What is there to investigate? He should be suspended immediately. Let's quit stalling, let's quit copping out, NBA. Let him go."

The Rev was clear ... if something significant isn't done TODAY, he's going to start putting pressure on advertisers to pull their money.

The wallet ... always the best place to attack.

So, hypocrites and opportunists like Al Sharpton can spew out racist comments all day long, but they're going to make a huge deal out of someone, in their own home making racist comments. I don't agree with what he said, but it is none of my business. What a person says in their own home is nobody business. Have plenty of important issues to discuss in the world and they have to focus on some bs like this.

Here Sharpton goes again. He will through out enough negative pressure for some of these advertisers to give him a job just to shut him up.
That's how the racist mouths work to better themselves.
Just watch.

****on is well versed in using hidden mic's. He is a rat you know. It wouldnt suprise me one bit if he is behind this. The Utash incident was probably a test run to see the public reaction.
