But the Rev. Al Sharpton, a (Don) King supporter, said a street named after (Don) King would motivate at-risk youths to redeem themselves.

Funny. Headline. Ever.

Where else but America, could a thug rise to "fame" and fortune on the coat tails of others?

Insert Don King"ism" word or phrase here...

"Only in America can the black man be kdjakdn;mfao;diud;oaiufdakjfa;ldable because of his kdjfl;akdnboiudfoiudfu8357849574istehghey..."

Or something close to that...

Anything that encourages street thugs to improve themselves and pursue a career in organized crime can't be all bad, eh?

Reminds me of that time Chris Rock went to Howard Beach (mostly Italian neighborhood for those of you not from NYC) to rename Cross Bay to Tupac Shakur Boulevard... funny stuff.

Didn't Don King kill someone when he was younger?

Don King is an asshole.

I would like to hereby thank the FARK mods for NOT installing an "asshole" filter, while simultaineously bringing even more attention to the fact that there is no "asshole" filter.

Thank you,

Dr Learned

GIS for Don King

And if this doesn't work, I promise to leave the image stuff to the pros until I'm actually good at it.

Didn't think so. I's three dogs with goofy hair.

I hate this guy.

In France, and I think in other countries also, streets and building can only be named after dead people. The only exception there is, in my country, is for a singer for children, Pierre Perret, with kindergarten schools named after him. We feel otherwise it's very innapropriate to do so for a living person. Aren't they any people in the USA that feel that way ?

In France it is also customary to surrender at the first sign of a fight, so no I don't think that I would like to follow their lead.
