No shocker, huh? I HATE THIS GUY - http://nypost.com/2015/01/04/how-sharpton-gets-paid-to-not-cry-racism-at-corporations/ Want to influence a casino bid? Polish your corporate image? Not be labeled a racist? Then you need to pay Al Sharpton.

What they get in return is the reverend’s supposed sway in the black community or, more often, his silence.
