A sports columnist named Steve Serby wrote an article about the ongoing tensions between NY Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress and coach Tom Coughlin.
This article has Al Sharpton up in arms. He claims it opens with a “blatant racist statement about an African-American football player with a neck injury.” The racist statement in question?
“Good for Tom Coughlin. Good for Coughlin for tightening the noose around Plaxico Burress.”
Seriously, is this all Al Sharpton does anymore? Scour the news for “racist” statements so he can stand on his soapbox and look down his nose at them? What possible purpose does this serve? If Burress were a big fat white offensive lineman would Sharpton have given a fuck? I leave it as an exercise for the reader to determine the answer.
Fuck off, Sharpton. You’re not healing the racial divide. You’re driving back and forth over it with a salt truck, ensuring the wounds will never heal. Go find something else to do.
