    MSNBC host Al Sharpton said Wednesday on “Morning Joe” that claims former President Donald Trump helped build economic security for the black community was “absurdity.” Sharpton said, “You must remember that after they stopped Reconstruction and went into this era that ended up with Plessy v. Ferguson, 1896, there was no legal change till 1954 with Brown v. Board of Education. You’re talking about a span of almost a century. We’re the only race that, by law, couldn’t do certain things. We had biases against others that came to the country, but we were named by law not to have...

    Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) continued to defend his comments on the marriage rate during the Jim Crow era during a contentious conversation with MSNBC anchor Al Sharpton. Donalds appeared on MSNBC’s PoliticsNation on Saturday after his event in Philadelphia earlier this week when he discussed how the black marriage rate was higher back then than it is now. His comments have come under fire by many on the Left, who have interpreted the remark to be about how Jim Crow laws benefitted black people at the time despite the fact that they kept them in segregation and prohibited them from...

    MSNBC host Al Sharpton said Friday on “Deadline” that former President Donald Trump was a “low down” conman playing “boogeyman politics.” Sharpton said, “He was the same guy that stood on television as president of the United States, and said it will be over in two weeks. Don’t worry about it. And then finally he told us to take bleach. So now we’re going – I think that the collective amnesia, that a lot of Americans are having, is the challenge that the Democrats have to put out there, say this is the guy that you voted out. Remember, now,...

    MSNBC host Al Sharpton said Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that the New York City civil fraud trial judgment against former President Donald Trump of $354 million in damages and being barred from serving as a corporate officer or a director of a company in the state for three years means he is a “broken person psychologically.” Sharpton said, “Let’s not forget, he’s still facing four trials he’s got to pay lawyers, and he doesn’t know how long the trials are going to last. He does not know what is going to be the consequence there. He can raise money. Whether...

    MSNBC host Al Sharpton said Wednesday on “Morning Joe” that Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) humiliated himself Tuesday night by supporting former President Donald Trump after the New Hampshire primary. Sharpton said, “Obviously Trump winning by double digits was not unexpected. I think Haley did a little better than some of the polls had, but she didn’t make it. I think that the fact that she pledged to keep running is in many ways the ultimate insult to Donald Trump because he wants everyone to just prostrate and bow to him and say now it’s over. What he’s really concerned about...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton delivered an impassioned eulogy Monday for Dexter Wade, a 37-year-old Black man who was run over by an off-duty police officer in Jackson, Miss., and buried in a potter’s field without his family’s knowledge. “What happened to Dexter is a disgrace, a national outrage, and should be treated as such,” Sharpton said at the New Horizon Church International. “It is time for the mayor and the city council to stand up for Dexter. How do you explain how a young man ends up buried? The autopsy said that he had a state ID in his front...

    MSNBC host and race-baiter Rev. Al Sharpton is a little confused about why the Founding Fathers are famous and what Americans celebrate every year on July 4. “One day, our children’s children will read American history, and can you imagine our reading that James Madison or Thomas Jefferson tried to overthrow the government so they could stay in power? That’s what we’re looking at,” Sharpton said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “We’re looking at American history, and how it will play out is going to be very important.” His comments are in reaction to former President Donald Trump’s third and latest...

    MSNBC host Al Sharpton said Tuesday on “Deadline” that Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) had said “we should erase” black and LGBTQ people. Sharpton said, “When we look at the president and vice president, they stood there today with the survivor of the Till family, talking at that very moment in Florida, you have a state Board of Education that is saying that we are going to change how black history is taught. You have a governor who has said that we don’t need to say anything that makes others uncomfortable when it comes to blacks or, for that matter, LGBTQ...

    MSNBC host Al Sharpton said Thursday on “José Díaz-Balart Reports” that the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on affirmative action programs for college admissions was a “dagger in our backs.” Sharpton said, “Well, I think that this is tantamount to sticking a dagger in our back because what they have said now is that it is unconstitutional to even consider race. And given the racial history of the country, let’s not act like blacks are behind because there’s something in our genes that made us behind. It was against the law for us to even read and write until 160 years...

    Left-wing activist and President of the National Action Network, Al Sharpton, has accused McDonald’s of failing to properly address accusations of racial discrimination by the company. In a Thursday letter sent to McDonald’s Corporation, Sharpton demanded that the company rectify “longstanding” issues regarding their allegedly discriminatory practices. Otherwise, Sharpton warned that he and his group would “mobilize to demand action against the fast-food giant.” “We find it appalling and inexcusable that McDonald’s Corporation has not satisfied its differences with the Black community,” Sharpton said in the letter, before noting the number of legal woes already facing the fast food titan....

    Al Sharpton took a shot at progressives at a conference hosted by his National Action Network on Thursday, saying he’s now in lockstep with Mayor Eric Adams on fighting big city crime. “Anybody that tells you they’re progressive but don’t care about dealing with violent crimes are not,” Sharpton said at the Sheraton New York hotel in Times Square. “Progressive for who? “We gotta stop using progressive as a noun and use it as an adjective,” he said. “You’re labeled progressive but your action is regressive. I’m woke? You must think I’m asleep.” He said he’s on board with Adams...

    Al Sharpton, the civil rights activist and reverend, said he thinks the indictment of former President Trump was “spiritual,” saying Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg will “deliver us justice.” “I’m always looking for the spiritual interpretation of something. And I think it’s very ironic that on … the 55th anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination, that the president that tried to turn back a lot of what King did is going to be arraigned in Manhattan Supreme Court by a Black DA,” Sharpton said at an event at New York University on Monday before Trump’s arraignment, according to the Washington Times....
