Right, because the fact that Al Sharpton can be a hypocrite automatically renders all claims of antiblack racism insignificant.

If future threads about racism turn into Al Sharpton threads they will most likely wind up closed, unless he's somehow directly relevant to the initial post topic.

Concerning this situation, if that were my couch I wouldn't have filed a compensation claim with the Human Rights Commission over it, but I would most definitely have phoned the retailer and written to the supplier and software company to say WTF?!? It isn't funny, and it's especially not funny to think that the supplier-importer may have noticed the labeling on whatever sort of packaging the couch ships in before and not taken steps to ensure the manufacturer stopped using that translation.

Ditto, thank you. I doubt U2 would be proud to see that sort of assumption in one of their fan forums.

It's called Favoritism.

Sorry I had to do this. I would rather listen to Malcom X or MLK over these 2 men any day.



"So Sharpton"

"Yes Jackson"

"Did you hear about that couch that had the "N" word printed on the tag?"

"No I did not, my god I think it's time for another firing?"

"But Sharpton God asks to forgive one another."

"Please Jackson, don't lecture me. Did you apologize for calling New York Heimy Town?"

"No, did you ever apologize for falsely accusinf cops of raping her? oh and what about the Crown Height riots where a mob killed a Jewish person, yelling Kill the Jew?"

"No."

"Well then ok, lets go get those guys fired!"

"By the way Jackson are you going to keep your promise about paying for the strippers education, no matter what the outcome?"

"Nah it's just for poblicity."

"hahahahahahahahhahahahahahahaha"

You can close the thread if you want. But this is my freedom of expression.


My bad.

What the hell is this supposed to mean? What does Tawana Brawley have to do with Yankel Rosenbaum?

There's been PLENTY of media frenzy over Sharpton and Jackson, otherwise you wouldn't even know about this stuff.

Justin, you really, really don't know when to quit, do you?



By the way, this board is not a democracy.

There is one article about this topic so far.
That's a media frenzy?

As said, neither Sharpton nor Jackson made a call as of yet.

Don't paint the devil on the wall.

It's a terrible thing that happened, and I hope that everybody in the chain of processing and delivering the couch, that means the companies, will revise their quality control to make sure such a thing can't happen again.

But I also think that the attempt to sue them etc. is a bit much. They apologized immediately, and it can't be undone.
But I don't see a need to take it to court and make it a big human rights issue. It wasn't done on purpose.

Why should I quit, Must be strong.

So if this is not a democracy then is what is it?

Monarchy?, Dictatorship? Communism (no that wont work cause your limited to what you can say. Sam applies to a dictatorship.

So please explain to me what this is?

Then why have they not been fired from their organizations for some of their comments or actions?

Your rights and restrictions are limited by what the mods allow you to say.

Tell me, how can you fire yourself?
