...Rev Al Sharpton has come up the hard way in my book and has taken many a lump. but from time to time I see the man on tv and he's saying something that I agree with, or I can see exactly why he might be willing to fight for or simply speak on certain issues. Yes I know I've changed, but I also think that the Rev has changed a bit as well and for the better. (at least it seems so on the surface imo) Still I wonder about the man, and always think in the back of my head is he genuine, or is he simply one of those James Brown was speaking on when he wrote "Talking Loud and Saying Nothing". Why? What you think about him.

As far as Jesse is concerned, his latest efforts just seem like media plays: those bad-ass kids up in Illinois, the Gary Graham case, his watchdog agency that's supposed to regulate racism on Wall Street, I mean nothing he's done lately has been of any real significance.

what's my muthafucking name?....
