Yes, there is a lot of conversation on the internet about Al Sharpton and Barack Obama. The conversation is about how President Obama was in New York last night supporting Al Sharpton. Candidly, I don't get how President Obama is making a pitch to Al Sharpton's Group when he knows full well about Al Sharpton's history, particularly with regards to his lack of respect for black women. As an example, Al Sharpton and the NAACP Support Dunbar Village Rapists. Yes, just in case you never heard about Dunbar Village,
Here are the basics of the story from Black America Web:
“The incident occurred at a public housing project called Dunbar Village in West Palm Beach, Florida.“After dark on June 18, the police say, as many as 10 armed assailants repeatedly raped a Haitian immigrant in her apartment complex at Dunbar Village … They took cell phone pictures of their acts. They burned the woman’s skin and (her 12-year-old son’s) eyes with cleaning fluid, forced them to lie naked together in the bathtub, hit them with a broom and a gun and threatened to set them on fire.”
As despicable as that sounds, it wasn’t the worst of it. The worst of it was when these vermin, according to Times writer Amy Goodnough, “forc(ed) (the woman) to perform oral sex on her 12-year-old son.”
Now we learn that the President of the United States is supporting, Al Sharpton, you know Al Shapton the same guy who supported the Dunbar Village rapists. The blog, What About Our Daughters covered this issue a number of years ago. I guess our President supports the madness of Al Sharpton. Read more on the untold details of horror at Dunbar Village.
Maybe the President does not remember Al Sharpton, the NAACP, and Dunbar Village like black and other progressive bloggers do. We remember how Al Sharpton defended the scum bags who “forc(ed) (the woman) to perform oral sex on her 12-year-old son.”
If that is the type of people the President wants to hang out with, fine. It's not the type of person I would want near me. I hope Obama is not courting black votes with Sharpton as some reports are saying.
Oh, and by the way, politico.com, Al Sharpton (the supporter of rapist) is no emerging "president” of black America. Black America has the same President as white America, "President Barack Obama." It looks like politico.com needs black political writers/reporters.
