Rev. Al Sharpton to Bring Obscenity Battle to Music Exec’s Doorsteps

sharpton1.jpgThe Associated Press recently reported that the Rev. Al Sharpton plans to bring his fight against obscenity in music directly to the doorsteps of the record label executives who control the industry. According to the report, Sharpton plans to travel to the Hamptons, Long Island summer homes of certain industry players with busloads of protestors for a rally during Memorial Day Weekend. The Hamptons, a longtime summer playground of the rich and famous, is typically an extremely popular destination during the holiday weekend. “I’ll be sure to wear my white suit, so I don’t violate the dress code,” Sharpton told columnists Rush & Molloy of the New York Daily News when asked about the rally.

    Well at least Sharpton is taking the fight to those that are truly responsible, but did anyone notice how he switched from rappers to execs and the media hype has gone down. This shows u that this is more of a attack on rappers and hip hop and not the suits who make it available to the public.

    Al Sharpton, Hypocrite

    I don’t care that Sharpton said a bigoted comment, saying Mitt Romney & Mormons don’t believe in God. It’s not PC, but it’s free speech.

    I am offended that Douche-bag Sharpton makes a bigoted comment, A FEW WEEKS AFTER leading the effort to get Imus fired for saying a similar bigoted comment.

    Sharpton = Hypocrite & 1 of the Worst people in the America. Well not at the level of mAnn Coulter or Michael Weiner “Savage”, but on the 2nd tier after that caliber of douches.

    Isnt it funny how its a Black man trying to bring rap to its knees. But somehow….it will become the white mans fault. Cats need to stop pointing the finger and start lookin in the mirror. Real Talk

    This guy fronts like he’s got the best interest of black folks in mind but you can tell just by looking at his straightened hair that he hates himself, thus he hates himself. It’s psychology 101 – he acts like he loves black people but doesn’t love himself which is why he altered his appearance so he could look more European than Afrocentric. This guy’s a joke.

    well i’m gonna be the outsider cuz i feel in some ways he is right, even though we should be able to say what we want, when is it right for the people who want us to say this shit(to keep their pockets fat) turn around and then act like they know nothing about it? Like we are just such hate filled gang banging killers who don’t respect women and hate each other?? I mean i get what yall are saying and all but look at the facts while your favorite artist struggles to make it past his advancement money, the record execs lounge in the hamptons and have multiple summer homes and can then deny that they sat in that board room and told u that your CD wasn’t “GANGSTA” enough to market…COME AGAIN?!?!?!

    AND THERE… LIES THE PROBLEM!
    The industry directs this kind of hip hop and the language is getting way, way out of line.
    AND THERE… LIES THE PROBLEM!
    Freedom of speech??? I don’t give a fuck if I offend you??? (or my momma, my lady or my children)
    AND THERE… LIES THE PROBLEM!
    Al Sharpton is NOT WHITE.. So what’s with the “if”??? he’s a black social activist who has been busy fighting for the civil rights of many people.
    AND THERE… LIES THE PROBLEM!
    Just like 50 said? going after the movie industry will not excuse the responsibility of Hip Hop to correct it’s language.
    AND THERE… LIES THE PROBLEM!
    Cursing is not creativity! Where do you get your 2cent logic from.
