In 1994, Sharpton stood before a crowd at Kean College in New Jersey. “White folks was in the caves while we was building empires,” he said. “We built pyramids before Donald Trump even knew what architecture was…We taught philosophy and astrology [sic] and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it…Do some cracker come and tell you, ‘Well my mother and father blood go back to the Mayflower,’ you better hold your pocket. That ain’t nothing to be proud of, that means their forefathers was crooks.”
TruthRevolt, a new organization led by Ben Shapiro, has started a campaign to boycott Ritz Crackers, one of the sponsors of Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show. If successful, I suspect TruthRevolt will organize boycotts of other sponsors of Sharpton’s show, with an ultimate goal of getting Sharpton’s show dropped from MSNBC.
If the latter happens–and I promise I’m not joking when I say this–I’d put the odds at about 50-50 that some university offers Sharpton a job as a teacher.
