It's surprising there was no "gun play" before the end of the evening.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Encouraging if they follow through with it, and a good illustration that people can only be pushed so far.

Still, what did Sharpton expect? You get a bunch of groups together in one place - possibly for the first time - and they find out that each of their groups has the same quiet concerns. It's easier to speak out in a group. Sharpton knows that, his entire career has been based on that idea.

I'd love to have seen the look on his face. "His" people saying "Enough of the crap. Can we actually fix things, instead of blaming others?"

I'll bet Sharptongue took his bruised, black *ss to the nearest pub for "holy water." :silly:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
