Sharpton is no danger to any one. His mistakes as well as his wit are
well-known. 

Whatever Sharpton's mistakes, they are like a feather compared to the sins
of the political figures that he opposes. Even more disgusting are the wits
and pundits of the media who bring up his name and persona in a tone of
bemusement in order to show what clever fellows they are.

Any one judging Sharpton purely on the basis of the Tawana Brawley case,
should remember that he stood almost alone among major NYC figures in
defense of the young black men wrongly convicted in the media frenzy that
was the NYC "Wilding Case."

This story is even more appropriate today. Donald Trump is the star of "The
Apprentice." Compare Sharpton to Trump. The most "loathsome"? Trump trumps.
