    Budweiser has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to sharptons Charity (Which is him by the way)

    They do this because Mr sharpton has threatened to turn his people against them for not hiring enough people of color.

    Since when do we allow domestic terrorism to run ramped in this country?

    This has been Sharpton's MO for a long time. Extortion is just one of the Reverend's many scams...

    Also,

    I had no idea a company such as Anheuser Busch would cave so easily.

    Targeting Coca-Cola

    His first target was Coca-Cola. Based in Atlanta, where former U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young was now running for mayor, Coke prided itself as an equal-opportunity employer and charitable donor to the majority black community. Coke thought it had nothing to fear from Jackson’s threatened boycott. But Jackson was planning to beat Coke with another stick: its business dealings in apartheid South Africa. It was mau-mauing, 1980s style.

    “Jesse brings up South Africa and the whole pressure in the negotiation shifts,” a longtime PUSH operative told biographer Marshall Frady. “This is one of the areas where they’re most vulnerable, because they’ve got big operations in South Africa.”

    Coca-Cola came to terms in August 1981 and offered distributorships of the patented Coke syrup to blacks. Coke shareholders were furious. A Coke spokesman, Carlton Curtis, said, “There’s been a strong reaction in the marketplace that this is outright blackmail, that this is a $30-million give-away plan.” But Coke management went along and soon downplayed the dollar value of the concessions they made to Jackson, claiming they barely reached $11 million and consisted of already planned expenditures.

    But for Jackson the lesson was clear: Public shaming worked better than the threat of boycott and was much less work. The first to benefit was Jesse’s half brother Noah Robinson. Covenant in hand, he won the first black syrup distributorship from Coca-Cola just one month later. Shortly afterwards, Coke also granted a distributorship to Cecil Troy, a major financial backer of Operation PUSH.

    In March 1982, Jackson signed a similar covenant with Heublein Corp., a wine and spirits company that owned Kentucky Fried Chicken. Under the deal, Heublein pledged it would spend $360 million over five years with black banks, advertising agencies, and newspapers, and would expand the number of minority franchise owners.

    Once again, Noah Robinson cashed in, using the covenant to lock in a Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise that would become the launching pad for a fast food empire. “I told Jesse, ‘If you just do the talking for us – and I handle the financial operations – we can rival the Rockefellers in riches,’” Robinson said.

    Cirilo McSween, Jackson’s treasurer and early financial supporter, denies receiving any financial assistance from Jackson. “I’m certainly one of his friends – one of his closest friends – and there is no evidence that I ever benefited from Jesse,” McSween says today. “I’ve always had business. He needed me, not the other way around.” Nevertheless, in the early 1980s, McSween’s Independence Bank of Chicago won several accounts from Burger King as a result of the PUSH covenant, a company spokesman said. And the list went on.

    "Rampant"

    He's safe so long as he doesn't shut down a Seth Rogen film.

    Actually, mob boss Joe Colombo was an early pioneer in this. He created the "The Italian American Civil Rights League" in the late 60s, which still exists... and still shakes down any mob-related mainstream movies and such.

    What about the "Kosher" seal of approval racket? Al seems to have borrowed that business model.

    Its probably cheaper in the long run to pay him off than to put up with blacks in the work force. I bet that's in Sharpton's sales pitch.

    "Mr." Sharpton goes to Washington:

    Considered politically toxic by Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, Sharpton has been enthusiastically embraced by President Obama. He has braggedabout helping to pick a new attorney general and communed with the current one. In fact, a much-quotedPolitico profile last summer described Sharpton as Obama’s “go-to man on race.”

    Given the reports of phone calls and text messages frequently exchanged between Sharpton and top Obama officials, a complete accounting of the relationship may be impossible. But a perusal of the White House visitor log — which shows 61 visits by Sharpton since 2009 — illustrates the extraordinary access Sharpton has had to the president and his top advisers.

    Oh, and pay your fucking taxes, liberal POS.
