When you speak out and take positive actions to stop young black men from killing young black men in America’s inner city neighborhoods, I’ll stop calling you a race baiting publicity hound. When you speak out about the fact that more black children in New York City die from abortion than are allowed to be born every year, I’ll acknowledge that you are doing something other than promoting yourself and inciting racism. And when you stop yelling, even though you are always speaking into a microphone, you may actually appear to have something to say that is relevant, or at least based in truth.
America has a lot of problems. We don’t need hucksters like you clamoring to get in front of a TV camera every time you see an opportunity to insert yourself into a tragedy and make things worse. If you’re really concerned about black children being killed, break your silence on the millions of unborn black children that have died in America’s abortion mills since 1973. Speak out against Planned Parenthood, the world’s largest child killer; an organization founded by a racist eugenicist.
If the roles were reversed in Ferguson, Missouri, and a black policeman shot a white teenager would you be saying anything, much less accusing the policeman of looking for someone to kill and convicting him of murder in the court of public opinion? I think we both know the answer. Mr. Sharpton, you have a dismal track record in high-profile alleged instances of racism. As a matter of fact, every single time you’ve commandeered the news cycle, incited civil unrest, and even leveled accusations of racism that resulted in innocent people losing their lives, you’ve been proven wrong.
As a result of decades of the playing the race card, you’ve become a public figure. As a public figure, you have a moral obligation to use your platform for the good of your fellow man, regardless of race. Don’t you think it’s about time you stopped promoting yourself and started promoting worthy causes? Einstein once said “Intellectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent them.” Even though neither of us falls in either of those categories, we can both work to make the world a better place.
I’ll be spending my Thanksgiving Day praying for the thousands of unborn American children spending their last day alive. Over 3,000 unborn children, both black and white, will die tomorrow in America’s abortion mills. They’ll never get to spend Thanksgiving with their families and they can’t fight for their Right to life. The only way the killing will be stopped is by advocates for every child’s Right to be born to speak out on their behalf and to make our fellow Americans aware of the magnitude of the slaughter taking place every day.
Sir, what will you do for America’s children?
