Oops: Sharpton’s Daughter Arrested, Al Takes 1 Look and Knows He Can’t Cry “Racism”
Al Sharpton, I’m going to assume, loves his family. He also loves telling America whenever some controversy arises between the criminal justice system and an African-American individual (or a group of African-American individuals) that its genesis must spring from America’s intrinsic racism.
So, when Sharpton’s daughter was arrested by police in New York City for attacking a cabbie, it would seem like a perfect opportunity for Rev. Al’s patented shenanigans. However, you’ll notice that the good reverend has been staying awfully quiet over this one.
Why? Well, he took one look at the cabbie and noticed he was black, too
According to the New York Post, cabbie Georges Coly “is so shaken up from the ordeal he broke down in tears outside his Bronx home Saturday.”
The incident happened after Ashley Sharpton’s 30th birthday party. As Coly picked the party up about 1 a.m. Saturday outside of a club in Hell’s Kitchen, he noticed that five people were trying to get into his cab — one more than the handicap-accessible minivan could hold
“I said ‘No, only four people,’ and they argued with me about it,” Coly said. “They were giving me a hard time.”
That hard time continued as the ride went on, so Coly asked them to get out.
“So I just asked them to take another cab and they refused to leave,” Coly said. They didn’t, and Sharpton took the keys from the ignition and started “shaking (them) in my face saying, ‘I have the keys, I’m not leaving.’”
Sharpton then got out and began walking away.
“I followed her for over a block begging for my keys back and I had to step in front of her and ask,” Coly said. Instead of acquiescing, “she swung at my face and ended up punching me in the chest.”
