I suppose we should be grateful, in spite of the fact the the rhetoric rendered by such notables as Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and race-baiters et al has been a primary enablers that encourages all black on white crime.

Al Sharpton condemns ‘knockout’ attacks

Rev. Al Sharpton condemned “knockout” attacks Saturday but stopped short of calling for marches against the brutal hate crimes.
