It seems that I’m not the only one who found Al Sharpton’s comments in the Dunbar Village rape suspects distasteful.
It seems that Sharpton has also gotten on the bad side of a group of black female bloggers.
“Sharpton bills himself as a spokesman for the voiceless,” wrote Tonyaa Weathersbee in BlackAmericaWeb.com “Too bad this time he decided to lend his voice to the ones who needed it the least – and guarantee that more raped black women will continue to suffer in silence.”
Remember, Al Sharpton thinks it’s a disgrace that basically a gang who raped a woman and forced her to have sex with her 12-year-old son should be out on bail because some white teens from Boca Raton that raped two girls after getting them drunk are out.
“Am I the only one that sees some GLARING DISTINCTIONS in these two cases that have absolutely nothing to do with the race of the defendants or am I missing something?” wrote blogger Arlene Fenton.
Fenton organized a letter-writing campaign against the local NAACP, Sharpton and his National Action Network for using the west Boca case to make victims of the Dunbar Village teenagers.
“It is breathtaking that the National Action Network brain trust can’t seem to comprehend the difference between a home invasion by masked gunmen who torture, rape, sodomize, cut, burn, and beat their victims for THREE HOURS and culminate the event with crime against nature committed against a 12-year-old child … and a case involving NONE of those facts,” Fenton wrote.
Of course being the politician that he is Sharpton is backpedaling…
Sharpton, who spoke with Fenton and Weathersbee on his radio show this week, now claims he never wanted the Dunbar rape suspects to be free pending trial.
Well at least some bloggers got to Sharpton even if it wasn’t this northern white boy. Ladies, you have my sincere thanks.
