Al Sharpton – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Alfred Charles “Al” Sharpton Jr.[2] (born October 3, 1954) is an American Baptist minister, civil rights activist, television/radio talk show host[3][4] and a trusted White House adviser who, according to 60 Minutes, has become President Barack Obama’s “go-to black leader.”[5] In 2004, he was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. presidential election. He hosts his own radio talk show, Keepin’ It Real,[6] and he makes regular guest appearances on Fox News (such as on The O’Reilly Factor),[7][8][9]CNN, and MSNBC. In 2011, he was named the host of MSNBC’s PoliticsNation, a nightly talk show.[10]

Sharpton’s supporters praise “his ability and willingness to defy the power structure that is seen as the cause of their suffering”[11] and consider him “a man who is willing to tell it like it is.”[11] Former Mayor of New York City Ed Koch, a one-time foe, said that Sharpton deserves the respect he enjoys among black Americans: “He is willing to go to jail for them, and he is there when they need him.”[12] President Barack Obama said that Sharpton is “the voice of the voiceless and a champion for the downtrodden”.[13] A 2013 Zogby Analytics poll found that one quarter of African Americans said that Sharpton speaks for them.[14]

His critics describe him as “a political radical who is to blame, in part, for the deterioration of race relations”.[15] Sociologist Orlando Patterson has referred to him as a racial arsonist,[16] while liberal columnist Derrick Z. Jackson has called him the black equivalent of Richard Nixon and Pat Robertson.[17] Sharpton sees much of the criticism as a sign of his effectiveness. “In many ways, what they consider criticism is complimenting my job,” he said. “An activist’s job is to make public civil rights issues until there can be a climate for change.”[18]

Sharpton on Brown as a father figure.[18]

Alfred Charles Sharpton, Jr. was born in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City, to Ada (ne Richards) and Alfred Charles Sharpton, Sr.[19][20] He preached his first sermon at the age of four and toured with gospel singer Mahalia Jackson.[21]

In 1963 Sharpton’s father left his wife to have a relationship with Al Sharpton’s half-sister. Ada Sharpton took a job as a maid, but her income was so low that the family qualified for welfare and had to move from middle class Hollis, Queens, to the public housing projects in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn.[22]

Sharpton graduated from Samuel J. Tilden High School in Brooklyn, and attended Brooklyn College, dropping out after two years in 1975.[23] In 1972, he accepted the position of youth director for the presidential campaign of African-American Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm.[24] Between the years 1973 and 1980 Sharpton served as James Brown’s tour manager.[25]

In 1969, Sharpton was appointed by Jesse Jackson to serve as youth director of the New York City branch of Operation Breadbasket,[25] a group that focused on the promotion of new and better jobs for African Americans.[26]

In 1971 Sharpton founded the National Youth Movement to raise resources for impoverished youth.[27]

Bernhard Goetz shot four African-American men on a New York City Subway 2 train in Manhattan on December 22, 1984, when they approached him and allegedly tried to rob him. At his trial Goetz was cleared of all charges except for carrying an unlicensed firearm. Sharpton led several marches protesting what he saw as the weak prosecution of the case.[28]

Rev. Al Sharpton Expected to Visit North Charleston

During a sermon at a North Charleston church, the Rev. Al Sharpton said Sunday that swift action taken by a white mayor and police chief in the South could set the tone for handling future questions of police misconduct across the country.

“It’s not about black and white. It’s about right and wrong,” Sharpton said. “What this mayor did is what we’ve been asking mayors to do all over the country: Not do us a favor, just enforce the law.”

The tone of the local community’s response to the shooting death of Walter Scott, 50, has been different than other instances of unarmed black men being fatally shot by white police officers, including the violent demonstrations from people in Ferguson, Missouri after Michael Brown’s death.

Sharpton preached at the Charity Missionary Baptist Church and commended Mayor Keith Summey and Police Chief Eddie Driggers both of whom were in the congregation and at a later vigil at the grassy vacant lot where Scott was shot to death.

The shooting was captured on dramatic video that was taken by a witness. Scott was shot after fleeing a traffic stop by then-officer Michael Slager. The officer initially said Scott was shot after a tussle over his Taser, but the witness video that later surfaced showed Scott being shot at eight times as he ran away. Slager was fired and has been charged with murder.

Scott’s death was criticized as yet another fatal shooting involving an unarmed black man by a white officer under questionable circumstances.

Some North Charleston community members said they suspect abuse of power and the abuse of public trust played more of a role than race in the shooting.

“It’s not about the color of your skin, it’s about social justice. When we all practice social justice, we’re all free,” said Mattese Lecque, a North Charleston resident who heard Sharpton preach. “Sometimes it takes disaster to bring about change, and that’s what’s happening now.”

The chants, hymns and calls for more police accountability during small rallies in North Charleston have echoed those in Ferguson, Missouri.

However, many in the North Charleston area have said they don’t want to see the burned-out buildings, broken windows and social tension that characterized Ferguson after Brown’s shooting and the announcement that a grand jury wouldn’t indict the officer who shot him.

Rev. Al Sharpton expected to make visit to North …

April 12, 2015: The Rev. Al Sharpton, right, speaks during a service at Charity Missionary Baptist Church in the wake of the death of Walter Scott, the black driver who was fatally shot by a white police officer after he fled a traffic stop, in North Charleston, S.C.(AP)

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. The Rev. Al Sharpton thanked the mayor and police chief in North Charleston on Sunday for their response to the fatal shooting of Walter Scott.

Sharpton gave the sermon at Charity Missionary Baptist Church, where Mayor Keith Summey and Police Chief Eddie Driggers were among those in the congregation. Later, he led a vigil for a small crowd in the grassy, fenced-in area where Scott, 50, was fatally shot after fleeing a traffic stop April 4.

Then-officer Michael Slager initially said Scott was shot after a tussle over his Taser, but witness video later surfaced showing Scott being shot as he ran away. Slager was fired and has been charged with murder.

Scott’s death was criticized as another police shooting of an unarmed black man by a white officer under questionable circumstances. In Sharpton’s commendation of the city’s response, he said the mayor and police chief’s swift action could set the tone for handling future questions of police misconduct across the country.

Despite the city’s response and Sharpton’s praise, there’s still a lingering sense of skepticism about whether Scott’s death would have been thoroughly investigated without the witness video.

“The mayor and the chief, they did what they had to do because none of us are blind,” Keith White, 60, of North Charleston, said before the church service. “Everyone saw the video and they did what they were forced to do once that video became public.”

The response by city officials and the local community hasn’t been similar to that of Ferguson, Missouri, where protests after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown and a grand jury’s decision not to indict the officer who shot him turned violent and exposed striking social rifts between black and white residents in the area.

Some North Charleston residents have said they suspect abuse of power and public trust among law enforcement as issues that may have played a more pivotal role than race in Scott’s death.

“It’s not about the color of your skin, it’s about social justice. When we all practice social justice we’re all free,” said Mattese Lecque, a North Charleston resident who heard Sharpton preach Sunday. “Sometimes it takes disaster to bring about change, and that’s what’s happening now.”
