Al Sharpton, and other civil rights leaders, have called on American's to boycott our economy on November 2. They are asking Americans not to spend any money on that day and plan to march on the Justice Department.
Al Sharpton claims that the Justice Department does not prosecute hate crimes like it should. Well Rev. Sharpton, attacking an innocent kid and jumping him (6 on 1) is a lot worse than hanging some nooses on a tree. The principal expelled those responsible for the noose incident and that was overturned by the school board, so the people you should go after are those on the board. The Justice department has nothing to do with that.
For those 6 to react the way they did and attack someone that had nothing to do with the nooses just shows a lack of character. It was a joke and to react with the type of violence they did is wrong. I do think that those responsible for the nooses need to be punished but that should be left to the school. I don't believe that Bell should be prosecuted as an adult, but at the same time I don't agree with the "Racist" Al Sharpton that it was just a school yard fight. If it was a fair 1 on 1 fight then yes, it's a school yard fight. That's not what happened and those 6 do need to be prosecuted for what they did (just not as adults).
What do racists like Sharpton gain from hurting the American economy? I really don't know, but it does show lack of patriotism. What they are basically saying is "lets ruin America to prove a stupid point!" It's dumb and I hope many will see past their creative speaking and spend as much you can on November 2. Spending money on that day will do two things: improve the American economy and protest the racism that Sharpton and others like him promote. Unlike them, I want America to progress and prosper. Thank you for reading and God Bless
And by the way (for those of you that are going to accuse me of being a "white KKK" member, I'm not. I'm actually Hispanic and I don't let all the BS get to me. There is racism in the United States, but it's racism against everyone. It's not just racism against blacks and Sharpton and Jackson are great examples of that (they are as racist as anyone).
