Sharpton rally mostly black. Why doesn’t the media hint that it was racist?

by editor on September 1, 2010

The clear implication of the liberal media was that most of the people who attended Beck’s rally were white, therefore the event must have been racist.

Here are just a few of the many examples:

“Beck says he and his overwhelmingly white followers ‘are the inheritors and protectors of the civil- rights movement.’” — Ben Adler, Newsweek

“Conservative commentator Glenn Beck and tea party champion Sarah Palin appealed Saturday to a vast, predominantly white crowd on the National Mall to help restore traditional American values and honor Martin Luther King’s message.” — Associated Press

“Many in the predominantly white crowd bent over backward to insist that they are not racists and to note that the crowd was courteous, despite heat and density.” — James Hohmann, Politico

Yet, the liberal media scrupulously avoided terming Sharpton’s rally racist, despite the fact that most of those in attendance were black.

For example, here are photos of Sharpton’s rally from the Washington Post. Nary a white face to be found. Hmmmmmm.

And here’s coverage from PBS. Not a lot of white faces shown in that march, yet two of the three people interviewed by PBS in this clip were white. Seems raaacist to us.

And then there’s this lunatic making this outrageous comment:

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.

Yeah, right. That’ll never happen. The race mongers and liberal media won’t let it.

I actually saw a lot of white people in the Sharpton march. However that march and rally WAS overwhelmingly attended by Black people henceforth if we go by that measure as they placed on the Beck “rally” then it was just as racist.

Overall sharpton said that “they” (Beck et al) were trying to take “our” (Sharpton et al) day… Now I have to wonder right BEFORE he said that (on O’Reilly) he said that there were people of all races on the march so who did he mean by “our”…? Did he mean just black people or did he include the latinos and asians and whites that were part of it? and if he intended to include the latinos and the asians the whites that were part of it, how is it that what Sharpton did any different than what Beck did in context of honoring MLK on that date?

Liberal minds… stupid.

I don’t like generalizations. One can argue that a great deal of Blacks in this country are liberal minded when it comes to government and politics (but in many ways conservative on social issues), also a lot of Black leaders capitalize on racism to make their money. it is wrong, however there is a good deal of Black people who aren’t stupid and it is important to make that distinction.

Sharpton is a charlatan and a poverty pimp. A racist is a racist no matter what skin color, Sharpton and Jackson fit the bill. As for the MSM they need to grow a set and a back bone. Cowards that they are, no doubt they will continue to spout off about how others are racist and they are not.

If “all men were created equal”, that phrase would not exist.

All people were created equal HOWEVER what men do is try to separate one another based on looks, nationalities, languages, philosophies etc. Instead of thriving to find SIMILARITIES AND EQUAL GROUND Men instead thrives to be DIFFERENT from everyone else.

I think the reasons for the lack of Black folks at Becks rally are here:

Becks predominately White Rally

As far as the MSM’s coverage, is anyone really surprised it’s all about race? anyone that doesn’t follow the liberal/progressive line of thinking is a racist and if they are black they are sell outs..MLK would have joined his niece on stage at GB’s rally. He would have been scorned by Al and Jesse for doing it too.

I feel the word “racism” has not only lost its sting, but its meaning as well. The liberal/progressives, with untiring help of the MSM, has reduced the word to a meaningless jumble of letters. If we refer to what once was the definition, we can easily see the liberal/progressives fit the definition far more readily than any other group (except for, say the KKK and NAACP). It is they that continually note “differences” in race. It is they that push the idea that race determines cultural and individual differences.
Enough of this non-sense. Enough of the MSM perverting our national language. MSM, just stop it already with the baseless, unreasoned accusations. Learn that political difference is not racism. Learn that patriotism is not racism. Just learn, already.

I wonder if it ever occurred to the MSM that maybe, just perhaps, it was the racists that didn’t show up for the Beck rally?

There is no other nation on earth that has spent the time, money and passed the laws attempting to assimilate blacks into the culture of America, from trillions of dollars to affirmative action, there is always someone like Sharpton or Jackson that demands more, they are owed something above and beyond, the race card has been played since the civil war and is worn out, don’t want to work, don’t! But don’t expect special treatment, the only ones being racists are the ones expecting something for nothing! Time to leave the Sharpton’s of the world behind and adapt to a culture of individual responsibility

I’m sure MLK believed that one day we’d all be equal, but it seems like the minorities of today don’t want to be equals.(Sorry to generalize, not all minorities feel this way.) They want to tie the white mans arms behind his back and also have a step up on him. People like Sharpton and Jackson wouldn’t stop even if 50% of congress was minorities =/

This is a funny article. The Rev. Al is like a black seagull – cruising around on high just looking for something to stick his beak in and shit all over.
Blacks today are some of the most vile racists you’ll ever meet, and no one says a word lest they be branded a “YT debbil”.

Think I’ll go have another Corona.
