Al Sharpton FBI racist

Most of the time Al Sharpton spends trying to prove he isn't racist by pointing out that everybody else is racist, just helps prove what an incredible race-baiter Sharpton actually is himself.

Information came out earlier this week that Sharpton had once been an FBI informant that helped bring down Mafia figures in the 1980s, but Sharpton is now calling those revelations racist because people are calling him a snitch while, "we make heroes in other communities who fight crime."

I could care less that Sharpton was an FBI informant, in fact it probably was the right thing to do, but to call just the revelation of information that he was an FBI informant, racist, just proves how much he has to play that card.

He doesn't like it. He got call a snitch and now everyone is a racist. Could this guy be more predictable?

Read more below from the NY Daily News:

He helped the FBI secretly record mobsters with a bugged briefcase, but the Rev. Al Sharpton said Tuesday that he’s no rat.

Facing stunning new details of his work as a federal informant, Sharpton said he “did what was right” when he helped an FBI-NYPD task force known as the “Genovese Squad” go after Mafia figures in the 1980s. [...]

Sharpton claimed that video simply recorded a failed sting.

The author of the Smoking Gun story, William Bastone, said Sharpton’s claims don’t hold water.

“The idea that he made the recordings because this guy supposedly threatened him …. It’s just totally crazy,” Bastone said.

“He may not like considering himself a confidential informant, but that’s what he was. He wasn’t doing this out of the goodness of his heart.”

Sharpton cast the new attention on his work with the feds as racist. He said that while blacks who help law enforcement are called snitches, “We make heroes in other communities who fight crime.”

Sharpton’s cooperation with the FBI had been reported as far back as 1988, but The Smoking Gun revealed that he had 10 face-to-face meetings — all recorded — with Joseph (Joe Bana) Buonanno, a Gambino family member.
