Al "Tawana Brawley" Sharpton: Limbaugh's Racist Remarks

Al SharptonImage via Wikipedia
Ed Schultz, the porcine host of MSNBC's "The Ed Show" who, in his nightly rants, confuses stringing together as many vitriolic adjectives with intelligence and humor, brought on the "Reverend" Al Sharpton to discuss his newest cause celebre': Trying to get the FCC to silence Rush Limbaugh over alleged patterns of "racist" remarks on his #1 radio program. Sharpton, who has made a living seeing race, seemingly behind every comment conservatives make, is probably best known for the Tawana Brawley case, in which white police officers were falsely accused by Brawley and Sharpton of repeatedly raping and smearing feces on Ms. Brawley. He has also referred to Fred Harari, the Jewish owner of Freddies Fashion Mart in Harlem, of being a "white interloper" in the predominantly African-American community during a protest led by Sharpton.  One of the protestors entered the store, shot several cusomers, and set the store on fire killing seven others. Sharpton takes no responsibility in this, or any of his numerous race-based crusades. I have listened to Limbaugh over the years and have not heard him attack anyone based on race. Quite the contrary. He goes out of his way to make clear that his criticisms based on policy/ideology differences.  Sharpton consistently sees things through a racial lens.  Let the games begin.  -  Brian

Chatting with MSNBC's Ed Schultz, Sharpton said he had a "very good meeting on Tuesday" with FCC officials and that "some of the commissioners" were interested enough in following up on his concerns that this could come to fruition in the coming months (video follows with transcript and commentary):
