Are blacks really that stupid for protesting the New York Post over a silly cartoon that doesn’t even pertain to Obama, claiming the cartoon is racist when it isn’t? Helloooooo! Pelosi and other assorted white people wrote the stimulus bill. Are blacks really that gullible to believe the cartoon was directed at D’Ohbama? Or are blacks “crazy like a fox” and just using the cartoon as a chance to get even with the paper for publishing about Sharpton’s problems with the IRS? I know white liberals are comprised of huge amounts of both the ignorant and liars. But since Mr. Holder wants us to be honest, am I a “racist” for even asking whether blacks are truly that stupid or just liars, making up false claims about this cartoon? [pssst. Judging by the reactions that I’ve read, anecdotal evidence seems to suggest that many really are that stupid. Or very good actors!]
Thanks in advance. Signed, a former “coward.”
New York Post 5/21/08: “A longtime confidant of rapper Dr. Dre claims the Rev. Al Sharpton threatened to march on the hip-hop icon’s recording studio unless he donated a half-million dollars to charity.”
New York Post 8/10/08: “If the IRS expects to collect millions in back taxes owed by the Rev. Al Sharpton, it will have to jump hurdles that have tripped up Big Apple tax collectors for nearly a decade.”
“The city Finance Department has tried in vain to collect tax bills that now total $379,800, including interest and penalties, from Sharpton personally and his business, Rev. Al Communications, since 1999, officials say.
“The failure to pay has earned Sharpton two spots on a list of the city’s 12 most stubborn tax deadbeats, officials told The Post.
“Of the dirty dozen, Rev. Al Communications places fourth, with a $278,306 debt, and Sharpton himself comes in 11th, owing another $101,525 for tax years 2002 through 2004.
“City officials call Sharpton an artful dodger.
“Sharpton reportedly earns $750,000 a year as a syndicated radio talk host, $15,000 to $20,000 in lecture fees, and $2,000 for church sermons.
“Besides their city debts, Sharpton and Rev. Al Communications owe a total of $565,000 in state corporate and income taxes, warrants by the state Department of Taxation and Finance show.
“His nonprofit civil-rights group, the National Action Network, also owes $2 million to $9 million in back taxes – the IRS is figuring out the sum.
“Sharpton forked over about $1 million to the feds last month when the US Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn agreed to drop a criminal probe of possible fraud or tax evasion. ”
Only the little people pay income taxes. And don’t even think about writing something negative about the Reverend!
