I took the January holiday comment to mean S & J should be dead, but not relative to racism. I think it's a little goofy to try to act like there was a positive connotation to the comment. It was definitely non-pc, but I've seen worse go unnoticed. As far as S & J and their hold on the black community, I'd say they're pretty well entrenched and won't be forgotten any time soon. Sharpton actually has done some good work in the greater NYC area. Things like this and Tawana Brawly really ruin his credibility, though. I have very little respect for him, but I try to remember that his heart is not as rotten as it seems.
