I wondered about this. No surprise anymore. In the early-mid 90's Howard would talk about what a racist Sharpton was.
Now he's evolved.
...dead man walking.
Howard only reads page six to see if he is mentioned.
Story is to current she will get to it after their next vacation.
The first rule of fight club...
... Is that you do not talk about fight club.
what? You think movies are just for entertainment? How else do you socially engineer a populous?
If Al was an evil white baby trapped at sea, robin would report it 8-10 times.
Howard wants a good seat at the funeral.
"I am not a rat. I am a cat, I chase rats thugs, gangsters, bigots, drug dealers. Bad cops whoever out of our community. That is right"
Will one of the mobsters now put a hit on the rat? Rat is now saying that he's proud of what he did. :
Unless one of those thugs, gangsters or drug dealers are killed.................................................by a white person. Then it's time to march against the creepy crackers.
The 5 Most Shocking Revelations in Report Alleging Sharpton Was an FBI Informant
A thorough and extensive report in The Smoking Gun, complete with affidavits and supportive documents, alleges that MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton worked for a period with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to inform on and secretly record members of the mafia.
The report strongly implies that it is shocking that Sharpton, or Confidential Informant Number 7 (â€œCI-7″), is connected to some of the most powerful entertainers and politicians in the country, including the President of the United States, has thus far evaded exposure. â€œHe spends his time at 30 Rockefeller Plaza surrounded by reporters, editors, and researchers committed to accuracy and the exposure of those who violate the public trust,â€ The Smoking Gunâ€™s authors note with a hint of incredulity.
That is a striking detail, but the most shocking aspects of their expansive report involve how Sharpton became involved with the mafia and was â€œflippedâ€ into working with the FBI and eventually was forced to attend meetings with Gambino and Genovese family members whom he secretly taped.
1: Sharpton Was Essentially a â€œMafia â€˜Associateâ€™â€
According to the report, Sharpton was involved with organized crime. An associate in a mafia relationship, the report alleges, plays â€œcentral roles in a crime familyâ€™s operation.â€ Sharptonâ€™s relationships with boxing promoter Don King and the music industry made him a figure of interest to both the mafia and the FBI.
2. Sharpton Was â€œFlippedâ€ When the FBI Offered Him Cocaine
â€œSharpton was secretly recorded in meetings with an FBI undercover agent posing as a wealthy drug dealer seeking to promote boxing matches,â€ The Smoking Gunâ€™s report alleges. â€œDuring one meeting with Sharpton, the undercover agent offered to get him â€˜pure cokeâ€™ at $35,000 a kilo. As the phony drug kingpin spoke, Sharpton nodded his head and said, â€˜I hear you.â€™â€
While there was apparently some dispute within the FBI as to whether Sharpton had violated federal conspiracy laws, the bureau nevertheless confronted him with the tape of his interaction with an undercover agent. Sharpton agreed to cooperate.
3. Music Industry Extortion
Though R&B star James Brown and executives at Spring Records, Sharpton was introduced to a variety of Gambino and Genovese crime family members. Sharptonâ€™s venture into the music industry connected him with Robert Curington, a music producer who was arrested on several occasions for trafficking drugs.
Curington and Sharpton worked together to pressure music labels to â€œspend more money in the black communityâ€ and â€œthreatened to organize pickets and boycotts unless a target handed over money â€” usually in the form of a contribution to the National Youth Movement, a predecessor organization to Sharptonâ€™s National Action Network.â€
Curington had numerous connections to mafia figures including, Morris Levy, Joseph â€œJoe Banaâ€ Buonanno, a music producer and convicted drug trafficker, and Joseph Pagano, a â€œsoliderâ€ the FBI suspected had been involved in several â€œunderworld hits,â€ in order to get â€œapproval for certain music business endeavors.â€
4. Sharpton Goes â€œOperationalâ€
Sharpton was transitioned at this point from â€œinformation to operationalâ€ FBI asset. Agent John Pritchard, who handled Sharpton and worked with the Bureauâ€™s â€œGenovese squad,â€ allegedly paid Sharpton for his services.
â€œCarrying the wired briefcase, Sharpton met with Buonanno on a Wednesday afternoon and recorded their conversation,â€ the reprot alleges. â€œWhile it was a short and uneventful encounter, the pairâ€™s next meeting would prove valuable for the Genovese squad.â€
At a subsequent meeting between Sharpton and Buonanno, the connected music producer would open up about his relationship with Levy, Carlo Gambino, and Vincent â€œChinâ€ Gigante. â€œOver the following months, Sharpton met with Buonanno eight more times, surreptitiously recording the Gambino member on each occasion,â€ The Smoking Gun continued.
Buonanno, said Curington, had a low opinion of Sharpton, and called the 300-pound preacher a â€œnose pickerâ€ behind his back. The gangster, who died of throat cancer in 1998, might have resorted to harsher actions had he ever learned about Sharptonâ€™s secret life as â€œCI-7.â€
5. Arrests Resulting from Sharptonâ€™s Work
Using the information gathered by Sharpton, the FBI engaged in a campaign of wiretapping and bugging aimed at listening in on a series of mafia members who have since become legendary figures in American popular culture.
â€œThe section of the FBI wiretap affidavits containing the fruits of Sharptonâ€™s cooperation was titled â€œThe Extortion From and Control of Morris Levy,â€ the report continues, noting that the Bureau went to lengths to protect â€œCI-7′sâ€ identity.
The investigations eventually proved successful and a series of mafia figures were eventually arrested. â€œEach defendant subsequently pleaded guilty to various criminal charges, so there was no public presentation of evidence against the men,â€ the report added. â€œWhich meant that OCTF prosecutors did not have to further expound on the indictmentâ€™s allegation that Daniel Pagano â€˜solicited the use of a bank account of the National Youth Movement€™ to launder money.â€
Sharpton, who controlled that account, would have been outed as an informant if these cases went to trial.
Rumor has it that he jizzed all over Tawana Brawley's nappy head.
Rat lying about how he became a rat.
Now Robin will report.

Al Sharpton Addresses FBI Report on MSNBC: â€˜I Did the Right Thingâ€™
Al Sharpton closed out his show Tuesday night addressing the Smoking Gun report that he was an FBI informant. Sharpton insisted he â€œdid the right thingâ€ and cooperated with authorities, but refuted the idea he was an official informant for the FBI.
Sharpton explained that he was involved with black musicians and promoters to the point where â€œmy life was threatened by people who claimed to be mobsters,â€ saying one person directly threatened to kill him.
Sharpton said he reached out to the FBI â€œto try to protect myself and others.â€ He dismissed the idea this is a new story and pointed out he wrote about it in a book years ago. He said, â€œI did the right thing, working with authorities,â€ and used the space to rail against the â€œno snitchâ€ campaign in black communities, saying thereâ€™s nothing wrong with â€œhelping the police keep commnities safe.â€
NBC Touts Al Sharpton's Past as FBI Informant; Glosses Over His Being Forced Into It to Avoid Indictment
Tuesday's NBC Nightly News highlighted MSNBC host Al Sharpton's past as an FBI informant but glossed over serious controversies, ignoring his infamous role in the 1991 Crown Heights riot.
The overall tone of the report was positive. Correspondent Pete Williams lauded Sharpton: "as mainstream as a civil rights activist can be, a frequent visitor to the White House, a friend of Attorney General Eric Holder and nightly cable host on MSNBC." Anchor Brian Williams stated that "tonight, newly released documents are shedding new light on another role from Al Sharpton's past, that of FBI informant."
While Pete Williams did say that Sharpton was once a "firebrand," he skipped over his role as organizer of the Crown Heights riot in New York City.
"He [Sharpton] was once a firebrand in a track suit. He championed cause celebre Tawana Brawley, whose claim that she was raped by whites was later discounted," Pete Williams noted. However, Williams omitted that Sharpton organized the 1991 Crown Heights race riot and warned of Jewish "diamond merchants." The riot resulted in the death of Yankel Rosenabaum.
Also, Williams waited until near the end of his report for some serious context as to why Sharpton helped out the FBI. "Law enforcement officials," according to Williams, threatened Sharpton with indictment if he didn't become an informant. Sharpton had "met with an undercover agent posing as a South American drug dealer wanting a piece of the music business."
Sharpton contested that point, and NBC let him have his say: "Sharpton was never charged with anything and insists he's the one who volunteered to do this, that he needed no veiled threats to help root out criminals who were preying on the black community, Brian."
