The media need Al Sharpton more than black America does
The recently noisy streets of Ferguson got a rest today, as the family of Michael Brown finally laid him to rest. And for a time, perhaps, demonstrations will give way to reflection. But one among those who protested will remain in the spotlight through the coming days and weeks: the reverend Al Sharpton.

His sermon at Michael Brown’s funeral, talkign about looting and rioting but never mentioning Darren Wilson’s name once, was the proverbial nail in the coffin for me.

No I won’t fucking “agree to disagree” on your sexism,…
