Similar to his response to the Don Imus episode, Rev. Al Sharpton tomorrow will lead a protest at MSG demanding the suspension of Isiah Thomas for his hateful comments, including sworn testimony, about African-American women. Yeah, sure he will. – Phil Mushnick, New York Post, October 5, 2006.
The Rev. Al Sharpton is threatening a boycott of the Knicks unless coach Isiah Thomas apologizes to all women for suggesting he has no problem with calling a black woman a “bitch.””We are calling on him to apologize because of what came out during the deposition . . . when he said it was all right for black men to call black women ‘bitches,’ ” said Sharpton.
“It is inexcusable for any man of any race to call black women or any women ‘bitch.’ ”
Sharpton said his National Action Network would organize picket lines around Madison Square Garden during Knicks home games, unless Thomas says he’s sorry. – Austin Fenner, New York Post, October 6, 2007
Either Sharpton has already sent Mushnick a fruit basket for making such a quality suggestion, or the Post’s condescending columnist will sincerely apology to Rev. Al in tomorrow’s paper.
Yeah, sure he will.
