How is Al Sharpton even allowed near a podium? He is the spokesman for no one. Except his bank account.

I believe Al Sharpton is more of an Attention Seeker than a Justice Seeker

Things really started to get emotional when Al Sharpton stepped away from the podium and allowed Trayvon’s family to speak.
