Rev. Al and President Barry: A Match Made in Race-Hustling Heaven
The other thing that hasn’t changed," Obama continued, "is the National Action Network’s commitment to fight injustice and inequality here in New York City and across America. And that's not only a testament to Reverend Sharpton. It's a testament to all of you who are here tonight. I want to commend you for the work that you’ve done over the last two decades to lift up not only the African American community but the broader American family. That's what you’re about."Yeah, bringing together the "broader American family" is what Al is all about.
That's what the Tawana Brawley hoax was all about. That's what the Crown Heights riot was all about. That's what the killings and arson at Freddie's Fashion Mart was all about; lifting the broader American family.
