I've seen plankton with more brains than Sharpton. Here's hoping he runs in '04, though. All those morons who couldn't mark a ballot in '00 can vote for him and split the vote.

You racist! everybody is racist at everybody!

so am I.. I don't like Albanians
2001-09-05 12:10:09 AM  
I don't agree with Sharpton, the concept isn't racist to think that a funeral is too extravagant.
However, I do feel that it is up to the person(s) paying for the funeral as to what a 'proper send-off' is.
2001-09-05 12:16:59 AM  
*sigh* apparently no one is allowed to speak their mind anymore. I hope the post hasn't applogised.

If olny there were a time machine... i could take old al and sell him to slave owners.
2001-09-05 12:36:07 AM  
Sharpton and his ilk are antagonists and should be dealt with accordingly. If this country had any hair left on it's balls, things like this would not be tolerated. Instead, our 'anything goes' society promotes this kind of idiocy.

Al Sharpton: Racisist # 1
2001-09-05 12:56:01 AM  
As if Sharpton doesn't have his prejudices... I have mine, everyone else has theirs, and most certainly, Al Sharpton has his.
It's sad she died and all, but I can't really sympathyze with him. I hate R&B, I hate the majority of people who listen to it (like my ingrate coont sister), but most of all, I hate pompous shiats like Sharpton, who believes that because he can put the meaningless letters "Rev" before his name, gives him the right to be a whistle-blower.
2001-09-05 01:03:03 AM  
Don't you understand?
Whites must hush-up. We shouldn't make a fuss about the actions of our betters. It ain't our place to criticize the master race. Us chillens just don understan their superior culture. We whites are simpler folk. Now hush yo mouf and eats yo wat-melon.
2001-09-05 01:03:21 AM  
What's the big deal anyways? She was a crappy record company creation that entertained a few 12 year olds and some slow adults.
Far as I'm concerned, that's one down, several thousand to go.. Here's a toast to the death of modern mainstream..
2001-09-05 01:03:52 AM  
it's sad that he targets only republicans. That democrat said nubian on air and.........not a word
2001-09-05 01:08:28 AM  
And when Dan Rather said "Buckwheats" his REAL quote was "We've got them by the buckwheats now..." I may be mistaken, but I think he was referring to their gonads...(and strife...)
2001-09-05 01:23:08 AM  
Hmmm, did I miss something, but where was the racist comment?

Good luck on the presidential campaign Sharpton, haha.

Sorry, who is that girl? She's kinda nasty looking, that's all I can tell.
2001-09-05 01:33:54 AM  
Tawana Brawley. She concocted this story about being raped by two white guys a few years ago and quickly became a media darling. The press began exposing the white man for the hideous devils that they are and The Right Honorable Revernd Al Sharpton came=a=runnin' to her defense and, and, and,,,,,,,,,,she finally admitted it was all a hoax.

One of the Rev's finer moments.
2001-09-05 01:38:12 AM  
Thank you Bigpeeler, that is a pic I had thought lost forever.
2001-09-05 01:39:50 AM  
I just noticed Al Sharpton has really rad hair. Maybe he could become president.
2001-09-05 01:57:16 AM  
Speaking of his hair......

2001-09-05 02:16:04 AM  
On his hair bib... that looks like Han Solo with Princess Leia in the background. I know it isnt but... it looks like it.

An F.Y.I. for everyone: is still available for registration at Network Solutions. Somebody please buy it and put it to good use.

I agree with the writer, I saw clips of the funeral this morning and it did seem to extravagant. From what I saw the funeral would've been more appropriate for a head of a state, royalty or someone who has truly achieved something. Sure, it is sad to see a 22 year old die, even if I don't know who she is, but being treated as royalty for no reason is bullshiat. Al Sharpton should just simply shut the fark up.
2001-09-05 03:06:19 AM  
Excuse me. I need to go take a Sharpton now. I'll be sure to wipe my Jackson when I'm done.
2001-09-05 03:25:05 AM  
Sharpton accused the writer of being racist, even though the writer made no mention of race. He livers in his own fantasy land where every African-American is the ultimate victim.

If Sharpton actually goes through with his run for the Presidency in 2004, I have no doubt that he'll blame racism for his humiliating and inevitable loss. But then, I personally know a few African-Americans who agree with me that he is a complete fruitloop.
2001-09-05 03:47:05 AM  
When you have enough money, why does it matter how extravagant your funeral is? It is not like it is interferring with other people.
2001-09-05 04:00:03 AM  
What? Al Sharpton? Calling someone racist???

I don't believe it.
2001-09-05 04:10:39 AM  
Like uhh most...all? people I don't like Sharpton but I like one thing he said a while back.

"Once Tiger Woods won, he became 6 different races. If he had lost, he would of been the black guy that lost."

And knocking Alliyeah...whatever is so played out guys. It's so last week.
2001-09-05 04:30:55 AM  
EggYolkEnema the orignial article's point was that it was effecting people with a horse-drawn funeral procession snarling traffic
2001-09-05 06:09:22 AM  
Like Chris Rock said, you can't run for mayor looking like a pimp.

What does 'Buckwheats' mean? Why is it racist? I've only ever heard it in 'Things to do in Denver when you're dead', where it appeared to mean getting shot up the ass..
2001-09-05 07:09:05 AM  
Al For Pres!
Al For Pres!
Al For Pres!
That does sound as stupid as he does.
The girl was a farking "Newbie" vocalist who got a parade fit for the Princess of Wales...
Tying up a large portion of a city... Jammming the event down the throats of people who didn't know, nor care who she was...
Sad she died, Asinine that it her funeral was made into a giant event.
2001-09-05 07:11:17 AM  
Thanks BigPeeler...
Do you think he'll use that photo of him and the lying coont who helped destroy an innocent mans life as part of his election press?
2001-09-05 07:14:23 AM  
pffft, i've never heard of her either.
2001-09-05 07:15:21 AM  
Why oh why must this become another huge thread...

We all agree he is an ass, case closed.

I hate to do this but it is inevitable . . .

2001-09-05 08:21:34 AM  
Fark Al Sharpton and fark Aaliyah's corpse. He's a racist bigot and she's a no-talent flavor-of-the-month durning an especially slow time for news stories.

Seriously, what has she done?!? Had a couple of very mediocre albums?!?! And this warrants a funeral a la JFK, Ghandi, Mother Tressa or Diana? Give me a break. She was a no talent flash in the pan hip hop star that didn't know how to pack for a plane flight. I don't miss her and I don't think her death deserves this press.

Nuff said.
2001-09-05 08:26:50 AM  
It was to extravagant, I mean horses? Please! Though how knows might have been one of her requests.

I want to be used as bait or chum after I die so I can go fishin with my buddies one last time.
2001-09-05 08:31:35 AM  
I want my corpse donated to Stile Project after I die.
2001-09-05 08:34:45 AM  
Fb:I want my corpse donated to Stile Project after I die.

Who knows what would be done with it . . . I say I want my corpse pulverized and mixed in a spicy bowl of chili so I can tear my lady's ass up one last time.
2001-09-05 09:18:26 AM  

Peeler: Is that the tania Brawley case?
2001-09-05 09:45:51 AM  
Yes, that's her (Tawana Brawley). Pretty bizarre.
2001-09-05 09:50:42 AM  
The best part of Al Sharpton ran down his momma's leg.

What does 'Buckwheats' mean? Why is it racist?
Buckwheat was a character on an old black and white series WAY back,called "The Little Rascals" I do not know if it was filmed during the depression. He was black, had hair like boxing promoter Don King, and his catch phrase was "OTAY!" ( Okay )
2001-09-05 10:03:09 AM  
I would be honored if people called me Buckwheat. Buckwheat ruled!

Bigpeeler: about your boobies posted here (the only one I took issue with) - Sieg Heil!!
2001-09-05 10:53:22 AM  
I wonder if it is possible for Rev. Al Sharpton to say a complete sentence without the word "Racist" in it.
