Whenever racial issues hit the news headlines anywhere in America, you can be sure that Al Shaprton and Reverend Jesse Jackson will soon show up to cash in.

Naturally, with Michael Brown- a black man who was shot in Ferguson, Missouri-Jackson hopped on the first plane out there!   But when he pulled out his bullhorn and asked for cash for his Rainbow/PUSH Coalition, the protesters were furious and heckled.

First hand accounts of the crowd’s overwhelmingly negative reaction were posted on Twitter:

"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."
