Sharpton: Black Youth Plagued By "Gangsterism" And, Of Course, Jews

Okay, he didn't say "Jews." But he doesn't have to. It's implied.

Sharpton, who is considering another run for president, faulted Hollywood and the record industry for making "gangsterism" seem cool and acceptable.

"We have got to get out of this gangster mentality, acting as if gangsterism and blackness are synonymous," he said. "I think that challenge has to be given to Hollywood and the record industry. I think we've allowed a whole generation of young people to feel that if they're focused, they're not black enough. If they speak well and act well, they're acting white, and there's nothing more racist than that."

Hollywood. The record industry. See? Jews. And probably Korean grocers, too, though I'm not sure how powerful Korean grocers are in the recording industry.

Pundits are calling this Sharpton's "Sister Souljah moment," which was all the more daring, because at the precise time he made these remarks he was actually attempting to convince Sister Souljah to pick up his hotel bill for him.
