As shown in the article below, Sharpton appears not just to be a racist  but ignorant of the facts concerning the Oscar nomination process as well. 

Should we expect more from someone who seems constantly to points his finger at others while hiding his own skeletons?

LB.

Fox News Insider:

 

 

Rev. Al Sharpton called for an “emergency meeting” to look at possible actions on Oscar night over the lack of nominations for black actors and actresses.

Though “Selma” was nominated for Best Picture, its director and leading actors were not on the lists, prompting Sharpton to slam the choices as “appallingly insulting.”

For the first time since 1998, all of the nominees in the Best Actor/Actress and Best Supporting Actor/Actress categories are white.

“In the time of Staten Island and Ferguson, to have one of the most shutout Oscar nights in recent memory is something that is incongruous,” he said.

Martha MacCallum discussed Sharpton’s most recent playing of the race card with Deroy Murdock and Richard Fowler.

She asked Fowler why the nominations can’t just be about the best movies and performances, calling it “ridiculous” to bring race into the discussion when “Selma” was on the Best Picture list.

Fowler noted that the Academy committee that decides the nominations is 93 percent white and 76 percent male.

He said this is about a “larger movement,” not Sharpton, saying a lot of people across racial lines voiced their concerns on the subject.

Murdock suggested that Sharpton turn his attention to actual emergencies in the black community – like black-on-black crime, unemployment and high school graduation rates.

“Given all the problems facing black Americans today, it seems like Al Sharpton ought to organize a whole bunch of other emergency meetings on real emergencies before he has a total freak-out over how the Academy Awards are playing themselves out,” said Murdock.

  1. You know…I think congress ought to pass a law that says until your taxes are paid up, you’re not allowed to go in front of any camera anywhere and stir the pot. Of course, now that I think about it, Sharpton may just be out trying to get donations to pay his taxes…ala Jesse Jackson??? Hmmm.

  2. While he is at it, can he form a committee on why there are more right-handers than left, more male ants than female, more tall basketball players than short, more muscle-bound football players than twig-skinny, more stars in the night sky than the day sky, more green grass on the other side of the fence, more cheese on the moon, ……..
