This is what Al _really_ said:quote:
NEW YORK, NY"”Democratic Presidential Candidate, the Reverend Al Sharpton, issued the following statement to clarify his position on the potential filibuster of President Bush's nomination of California Supreme Court Justice Janice Rogers Brown to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
"I am strongly opposed to the nomination of Janice Rogers Brown to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals." "She is so far removed from the judicial mainstream that she poses a serious threat to the progress we have made in civil rights." "This morning, I made phone calls to Senator Lahey, through his Chief-of-Staff, Luke Albee, and Senators John Edwards, and Charles Schumer, to convey my opposition to the nomination of Justice Brown." "I asked the Senators to do everything within their means to prevent her from gaining a lifetime appointment to this important Court, and call upon the full Senate to take the same steps to ensure that she is not confirmed."
Looks like Al's vote is for Janice Brown to go 'down'!
Beside Shebakoby, why should a Canadian care what Blacks in America think? Should it matter to you if Janice Brown or Charlie Brown gets to be a Circuit Court judge? Who asked for you to come in here and offer an uninvited and uniformed opinion? You're not even a U.S. citizen! Which I find incredibly hilarious and arrogant of you to interject your opinion here of all places.
Our people have made the mistake of confusing the methods with the objectives. As long as we agree on objectives, we should never fall out with each other just because we believe in different methods, or tactics, or strategy. We have to keep in mind at all times that we are not fighting for separation. We are fighting for recognition as free humans in this society

I wasn't talking about whether he SUPPORTED Janice Rogers Brown, I was talking about the fact that even HE recognized that this filibuster is B.S. and she should at least have an UP OR DOWN VOTE (non-supermajority).
Boy you really don't know do you? Whither USA goes, Canada usually follows, and vice versa. AND YES IT F***ING MATTERS--I have relatives here in USA (and am currently posting from Mt. Vernon WA). I am A DUAL CITIZEN (US/CAN) SO DON'T TELL ME I CAN'T COMMENT!!!!!!!!! This ain't so much what black people think it's about what LIBERAL LEFT-LEANING PEOPLE think!!!!! Un-invited doesn't mean $#**--this is a free country. Uninformed my @$$. I know more about American Politics than some Americans I know.
