FBI Snitch Al Sharpton Has Never Helped African-Americans

Uncle Luke, the man whose booty-shaking madness made the U.S. Supreme Court stand up for free speech, gets as nasty as he wants to be for Miami New Times. This week, Luke takes on the FBI's most famous rat.

No one should be surprised that Al Sharpton was a major snitch for the federal government. Last week, the Smoking Gun unearthed damning evidence of the good reverend's onetime role as a mob rat during the '80s. The blockbuster exposé detailed how Sharpton became the FBI's "CI-7," toting around a special briefcase outfitted with a secret recording device that caught several wiseguys from the Genovese crime family on tape multiple times. The Smoking Gun says he flipped when FBI agents showed Sharpton a videotape of him talking about doing a cocaine deal with an undercover agent posing as a South American kingpin.

Initially, Sharpton denied it. Now he's claiming he cooperated with the FBI only because his life had been threatened by gangsters. Yeah, right. Sharpton has been bamboozling African-Americans ever since he joined the civil rights movement. He's always been a government double agent, pretending to help black people when he really does nothing for them. Sharpton is a great showman who can get cameras to follow him around. His job is to fool African-Americans into thinking someone is fighting for them.

When he came to Florida following the murder of Miami Gardens teenager Trayvon Martin, Sharpton vowed he would lead the fight to repeal the state's Stand Your Ground law. Two years after the boy's death, the law is still on the books and Sharpton hasn't done anything about it. He promised to move to Chicago's worst neighborhoods to fight the gun violence killing so many black people in the Windy City. According to a recent article, Sharpton leased an apartment in an affluent part of town and stays there only once a week.

I've been dealing with two-faced activists like Sharpton since I was an underground DJ in the early '80s. I recall an incident when I was throwing a party at a park in Liberty City. A riot broke out after a white police officer yelled "niggers" at us because we were playing music too loudly. A few days later, Rev. Willie Sims came by, acting like he wanted to help us resolve the situation. He was really a flunky, sent by the City of Miami to keep the black people in check.

That's what Sharpton does. He's the "political activist" who goes to whichever city or state is having a "black" disturbance to tell African-Americans what they want to hear. But he never really does anything except talk.

For being a government stool pigeon, Sharpton has gotten two book deals, a host spot on a national news talk show, and fame. He's the greatest snitch ever.

...................forget REV SHARPTON, he was outted in the TAWANA BRAWLEY scandal - how about the whole N A A C P about to give a SECOND lifetime acheivement award to DONALD STERLING !

these BLACK leaders are all for themselves - period

every time some lod-mouth shows up it's simply to get paid under-the-table money - none of which helps the cause

I find it funny that the white trailer trash and ah bunch ah wetbacks,know more about the black community,than the blacks do.The true Jigga boo's that's on this site should cease to exist.Yes Ben Carson is a HOUSE NI&&A.flat out.Rev AL hasn't ask you lames for nothing and i'm sure he never will.Luke should stop it.what did he do for Trayvon or anyone else? all the coke money his hands is dirty with,While the post and comments are all about the black community,it helps to take light off of the community that you people live.The Heroin and Meth is destroying the white community,Daily! and the meth is way out of hand,but you can't blame us for it.I can't believe all these border jumpers(or descendants of some)could go in on Rev Al.He has used his airtime to shed light on your peoples plight.Snitch or no snitch,you cowards couldn't carry his jock strap.And too the sand ni&&as(Arabs) who got to come here,while our soldiers were over in your war torn country getting killed for you guys sorry a$$e$, trying to help you bastards out(black soldiers also)and this is the thanks we get?I say all you racist bastards you  will burn in hell and you know who you are.

Uncle Luke is right. Al Sharpton is a POS who uses race baiting to get some camera time when he finds a chance.

All he has done is agitate and try to keep the hate alive. Booker T. Washington warned us about people like him, people who "do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs."


But Luke, you are not better.

You do the same all the time.

For example, you keep repeating the Trayvon Martin "Stand Your Ground" lie to keep blacks angry. There was no "Stand Your Ground" in the Trayvon incident and you know it damn well. Also, Trayvon Martin was the poster boy for everything that's wrong with our teenagers. 

You are rooting for a punk that could not stay in school and could not keep his hands to himself. Instead, you should be educating others like him so that they learn and understand the law, stay in school, and stay out of trouble. Us law abiding citizens don't need SYG repealed, we need punks and criminals to leave us alone.


You also keep poisoning young minds with your hip-hop-and-football crap. Hip hop is not the way out, and neither is football. Maybe it worked for you, but it will not work for the millions of young men and women who waste their time, and other people's time in our schools acting like fools. 


EDUCATION is the only way out, Luke, and neither Sharpton nor you are spreading that message.

Jackson sharpton Farrakhan, all rich black leaders thanks to the suffering of the black family in this country, why not give a guy like the great Ben Carsons chance he has no coalition he ask u for no money but just give a differnt perspective, he grew up a few miles from me with some brothers and sisters, in a 1 bedroom appt with his mother who worked many jobs just to put food on the table, he beat the odds got out of Detroit and before he retired he was the number 1 doctor in his field, there is a hero a leader a man

.............amen

to bad it took forty years of the good reverend sharpton's bull$hit to finally be seen by a BLACK person for what it is

why MORE black people don't wonder why they never get anywhere when clowns like sharpton and jackson show up always puzzled me

i for one suspected these buffoons all along, as WHITE puppets, being used to squelch dissent,  but even when sharpton knew tawana brawley was lying,  sharpton kept insisting on his slander campaign,  which he was sued for,  and lost with "damges of some $80,ooo,  which his "church" was to pay for him

only malcolm X was brave enough to come out when he found the truth about elisha mohammad screwing and impregnating very young black girls as an "entitlement" yet the black muslims made sure brother malcolm would not tell of his story and they killed him - why someone hasn't yet killed sharpton is also a puzzle to me

I agree with Breaux. It's easy to repeat stories printed by the NY Post (a questionable source to begin with). Rather than call him out for this why not call him out to have a discussion and determine for yourself whether or not he's for real?

The fact that he has any credibility is an amazing feat in and of itself. Broker a cocaine deal, sell a million books, get called a hero!

Al Sharpton: A not-particularly-intelligent racist, peddling the victim mentality to people who want to find ways out of taking responsibility for their own lives. The scary thing isn't that he exists, it's that there is actually a profitable market for his garbage.

@rbluejr  Are you angry, sir?


By the way, Education is your way out. 

Your grammar stinks. 

Your spelling stinks. 

Your punctuation stinks.

And your comment is racist.

@Exiliado  


if you read or listen to the testimony of RACHEL JEANTEL especially as she explains about the meaning of "ass whooping" there is no doubt TRAYVON could have fled but instead confronted ZIMMERMAN


the kids shouldn't have been killed but he wasn't entirely innocent and certainly wasn't smart but his parents weren't any good at being parents either and probably had him just to qualify them for government support like section 8 housing and taxpayer financial assistance like SNAP and oBaMaphones

.....................well the theory among BLACKs is that ben carson is labeled an O R E O just like oBaMa and others so that 1 ) the sharptons can control the message and 2 ) this gives BLACKs an excuse an out to cover their own gimmick on getting over on the system as if they are entitled to government assistance and support

when you run around with your cap on sideways and your pants pulled down and are uneducated and unemployable, you simply have to have someone to blame - and sharpton convinces his followers that WHITE people are the reason BLACK people are being held down,  meanwhile,  i don't see how any WHITE people could have convinced so many young impressionable BLACK kids to act to stupid,  or get pregnant, or commit felonies,  or miss out on getting an education, or skill of some kind - how is it possible to blame ALL THAT on WHITE people ?

leave it to sharpton to point out the way WHITE people hold BLACK people down - just like he paraded TAWANA BRAWLEY around some years ago
