Rappers David Banner and Talib Kweli put Al Sharpton and other alleged civil rights leaders on blast for their 'faux' activism. While Banner's commentary is laced with profanity, it doesn't make it any less true. You have to question Sharpton's motives for jumping on that Don Imus 'nappy headed hos' controversy. Sharpton was front and center, calling for Imus' firing.
Ironically, it wasn't Sharpton or any other civil rights activist that got Imus fired, it was Imus' advertisers who pulled the plug. Like any good attention slut, Sharpton made the best of this opportunity. I wasn't the only one rolling my eyes at his foolishness and permed out 'do. We shall overcome, one day.
