There isn’t a single race scandal that Al Sharpton hasn’t found a way to profit off of.
He thrives on dividing the country along racial lines.
And what he just said about anthem kneelers will change everything for the NFL.
The race hustlers on the Left have been wreaking havoc on the NFL for years.
Ever since the first time Colin Kaepernick kneeled during the national anthem, they have been promoting this anti-American way of protesting.
But all of that is changing ever since rapper Jay-Z took a job with the NFL and declared that people should stop kneeling during the national anthem.
Jay-Z was initially a supporter of the protests, and is a good friend of Sharpton.
So the fact that Sharpton only backed off now shows that he will give up his convictions as long as his famous friends tell him to.
News One reports:
On Saturday, Sharpton suggested that the Jay-Z-NFL-Kaepernick debate was missing one key component that, if included, would put the controversy into what he said was its proper, larger context.
“This ain’t about Colin Kaepernick’s knee,” Sharpton said, “it’s about choking Eric Garner to death!”
Sharpton, who went on to cite Tamir Rice and Michael Brown as other unarmed Black males killed by police, was referring to the absence of justice as NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo avoided criminal charges and has kept his high-paying job more than five years after being was recorded on video choking Garner to death in broad daylight. The reverend used that notorious police death to explain who he said should matter most in the overall social justice narrative.
“This ain’t no battle for athletes and superstars, it’s about people being trampled on,” he exclaimed. “Don’t let them distract you fighting the wrong fight!”
Sharpton went on to cite Jay-Z’s notable contributions on the social justice front. “I’m not attacking Jay-Z,” he said before emphasizing that he was more concerned with justice for Garner and other Black victims of police brutality that has gone unpunished.
Only time will tell if these protests are actually going to end.
But if they do, fans of the NFL will be relieved.
