* At a 1991 funeral of a Black child accidentally killed by an out-of-control car driven by a Jew, Sharpton delivered this eulogy:Talk about how Oppenheimer in South Africa sends diamonds straight to Tel Aviv and deals with the diamond merchants right here in Crown Heights.
Oppenheimer is the Jewish family that is a big player in the diamond industry, and Crown Heights is a Chassidic Jewish community, some of whose residents are in the diamond industry. It was clear he was denouncing the Jews. Sharpton spoke of how these "diamond merchants" had "the blood of innocent babies" on their hands and exhorted the crowd to commit violence in the Crown Heights, Brooklyn Jewish community:If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house.
Shouting, "No Justice, No Peace" with the funeral crowd, he incited riots in Crown Heights where a mob shouting, "Kill the Jews!" surrounded Jewish rabbinical student Yankel Rosenbaum and stabbed him to death.
* In 1995, Sharpton incited the shooting and arson murder of seven employees of Freddy's Fashion Mart. When the Black landlord raised the rent on Freddy's White (and Jewish) owner, he was forced to raise the rent on his Black subtenant. Sharpton organized a protest, at which he announced:We will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business.
Sharpton stood by and nodded in agreement as speakers and the crowd shouted: "Burn down the Jew store!" "We're going to see that this cracker suffers."
A protester shot four employees and set fire to Freddy's. It burnt to the ground and seven employees--all of them minorities--died.
Jackson and Sharpton. These are the new gods of race merchantry to which all others must apologize?
Next, the kettle will be apologizing to the pot. And the pot will say it's not enough.
