A blunt Sharpton scolds state’s black Democrats—
Oct 09, 2011
Ohio black Democrats got a verbal tongue-lashing last night from the Rev. Al Sharpton, who complained that they “got comfortable” and “too low down to stand up for yourselves.”
“You forgot how you got here, and that’s how they will take you out of here,” Sharpton told about 600 people at the Ohio Legislative Black Caucus dinner at the Hyatt Regency hotel Downtown. It was first black caucus statewide convention held in 27 years.
