Al Sharpton to Don Imus shortly after his “nappy-headed ho’s” comment:
You could be fired and the nicest guy in the world, but you ought to be fired.
Al Sharpton on the subject of Mitt Romney:
As for the one Mormon running for office, those who really believe in God will defeat him anyways.
You know I’m an atheist and an ex-Mormon. I can say with a fair degree of authority that not only is Al ignorant on this matter, but he’s clearly displaying as much bigoted insensitivity as Imus was. Mormons believe in the Phantom Sky-Daddy every bit as much as any other religiously-deluded clade — more so, even, than some.
The comment above is functionally identical to calling Arabs “ragheads”, Indians “camel jockeys” and Mexicans “wetbacks”. You’d think Sharpton, who has no doubt endured his share of anti-black bigotry, would be a little more sensitive than some to that fact.
I wonder if Al will be shouted down from his own radio program now.
