    Of course he is. The timing of this protest is questionable.

    When he's done, he can come here to Cincinnati to protest the outbreak of black-on-black violence. The number of shootings/killings here is at a 20-year high. Since The Reverend is so concerned about black lives, he should be here, right?

    Robert E Lee was torn between serving Virginia and the U.S. Unlike Forrest he repented and did well after the war. Many in the North regarded him as the greatest general who served the wrong side. Sharpton is only an opportunist.

    Facts don't matter anymore, pns. It's all about whatever makes the mob feel good. Who cares if somebody changed their ways? Revisionist history WILL happen.

    Can he stand next to you as you protest the white-on-white violence?

    White people are good for deflecting with this whole black on black violence thing.

    You don't know what Al Sharpton is doing through that whole action network. He doesn't have to be there if he's got a team there.

    Were the GOP Presidential nominees there after all those bikers got shot?

    Why would the GOP be concerned about biker gangsters? Even the Democrats could not make an issue out of that and they tried hard--Crabby even tried to get a thread started here on a Christian board about violence in gangland.
