bringing Up a Past Post

The article on Blacks being at odds on Obama and the comments that I've seen posted on Huffington remind me of a post I made back in May of 2007 when the object of scorn was Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson:

What is Sharpton Hating? it' pretty clear. People hate Sharpton (and Jesse Jackson) because they show up when black people are insulted, threatened, etc. Sharpton takes the risk of being wrong by speaking out. Whereas you and I, work for someone else and have to put up with various insults and the like, Sharpton (and Jesse) don't work for anyone and are free to call spades, spades. In other words, they make their living, by and large by being there when racist stuff happens.

Just exchange Tavis for Sharpton and you get the same thing.
