Report: Sharpton said ‘race,’ ‘racism’ or ‘racist’ 215 times on his show in 2013

MSNBC host Reverend Al Sharpton invoked race over 200 times last year, according to a new tally by the conservative Media Research Center.

According to the analysis by Katie Yoder the liberal host said “race,” “racism,” or “racist” 215 times in 2013 during his MSNBC show PoliticsNation.

“From opposition to the Obama agenda to guns and even into fashion and food, Sharpton’s finely tuned nose for racism rarely took a day off last year,” Yoder wrote.

In an example the MRC notes that Sharpton was able to invoke race five times in a single paragraph about Republican attacks on Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder.

“Sharpton proved his ability to find race in all things — including food and fashion. On Sept. 9, Sharpton invited Vogue Contributing Editor Andre Leon Talley to discuss racism in fashion. Earlier in the year, on March 8, he turned to food by asking Michael Moss, author of ‘Salt Sugar Fat,’ to digest how the food industry targets consumers by race,” Yoder added.

ONLY 215 times? That must be a conservative estimate...

It didn't include such terms as cracker or honky, apparently. :whistle:
