Mr. Sharpton (i.e., Reverend Al) made the comment today "we's not stupid. we's not ig'nant"
By those comments alone, Mr. Sharpton has shown HIMSELF to be ignorant and a poor representation of the African American community. There IS no such word as "WE'S" and there IS no such word as "IG'NANT."
He turned a senseless shooting into a racial issue, and he should be ashamed of himself. We ALL love our children, and we ALL would be devastated if something happened to them. But, would ALL of us take to the streets if one of them was murdered?? Somehow, I doubt it.
And, if one of our children were to be senselessly murdered and was NOT African American, would the POTUS take notice of it in a national news conference? Somehow, I doubt it.
When Rev. Sharpton, who I presume is educated enough to have EARNED the title of "Reverend" uses words that do not exist when representing the black community, he not only shows HIMSELF to be IGNORANT, but he gives the entire African American community a bad name.
So, I have this to say to Reverend Al:
When you come to MY home, Reverend, we use PROPER ENGLISH! We do not speak Ebonics, I require my grandchildren to speak correctly and to use correct enunciation. If you continue to use words that do not exist (except in your mind as an "oppressed black man,") you will be politely asked to LEAVE!!!
