According to Livesteez, Al is as hot as fish grease over some remarks made by the infamously racist New York Post:
Post, and is calling for the publication to take immediate action to address what he calls “blatant racism” and a “media lynching.” Post columnist Steve Serby wrote in his Monday’s edition: “Good for Tom Coughlin. Good for Coughlin for tightening the noose around Plaxico Burress.” The star wide receiver has been fined and benched by the Giants for infractions including tardiness and missing practices. On Saturday, Burress skipped a treatment for his neck, and was benched during the first quarter of the Giants’ win in Pittsburgh Sunday, reports New York Daily News. In criticizing Burress, Serby used a racially loaded and offensive term, Sharpton told the Daily News. “To make such a blatant racist statement about an African-American football player with a neck injury is completely unacceptable,” Sharpton said. “Clearly, the racial connotation is very disturbing. … This is the verbal reflection of a hanging noose.” “If we don’t see action, I will lay out exactly what that is … we would like to talk to someone there about whether it was the writer or editor who let this in.”
We might have to ride with Al on this one. Those are extremely flagrantly racist and inflammatory words. This is just more evidence of the change so sorely needed in this nation.
