Rev Al Sharpton : His Church in Harlem : NYC

The Reverend Al Sharpton is back on the airwaves and back on the streets............. the judge found all of the three officers not guilty on any of the charges against them after a black New Yorker was gunned down on his wedding night celebration......Sean Bell was shot and killed by the 50 shots fired in error by the those officers.......... It seems a horrible case of complete over reaction..... overkill (literally)....... and there must, it seems, be more than a fair element of total recklessness in all this....... but there doesn't appear .... at least to me..... to me to be a massive element of racism.... two of the three officers are black themselves ...... but the Rev Al does not necessarily see it like that........ to hear him threaten to close down the city to get justice... is to hear his tried and trusted high octane one issue bandwagon swing into action again...... on a national scale I suppose its a relatively smaller story....... even so its got to be bad for Obama....... mind you.. this terribly sad NYC story... is as nothing to the effect of the depressing rhetoric of Obamas former pastor the Rev Jeremiah Wright.......

Wow he really is depressing me........ I thought Obama's original speech on race did a fantastic job of damage limitation... and was grown up and inspirational.... but now that the Rev Wright is speaking out again...... in such a depressing way....... it just couldn't be designed to be more damaging.......

Between them Rev Wright and Hillary have done just everything they can possibly do to damage Obama....... and they have really succeeded....... certainly in taking the ultra nice squeaky clean shine off the all new and brilliant candidate who suddenly emerged and looked so unassailable and inspiring........
