A Little Blackmail from the House Nigga

Tim Blair:

Require some insightful opinion on the NY Post‘s monkey cartoon? Why not ask the guy who described Condi Rice as President Bush’s house nigga.

Al Sharpton was very cross with a New York Post cartoon that he falsely claimed likened Barack Obama to an ape. But it turns out that Shaprton may have been even crosser with an earlier New York Post article that exposed him as a professional race baiter:

Anheuser-Busch gave him six figures, Colgate-Palmolive shelled out $50,000 and Macy’s and Pfizer have contributed thousands to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s charity. Almost 50 companies – including PepsiCo, General Motors, Wal-Mart, FedEx, Continental Airlines, Johnson & Johnson and Chase – and some labor unions sponsored Sharpton’s National Action Network annual conference in April.

Terrified of negative publicity, fearful of a consumer boycott or eager to make nice with the civil-rights activist, CEOs write checks, critics say, to NAN and Sharpton – who brandishes the buying power of African-American consumers. In some cases, they hire him as a consultant.
