Rev. Al Sharpton Responds to Critics Who Say His Movement Doesn’t Include Enough Younger Activists


Usually, we don't defend Rev. Al Sharpton, but in this case his critics are very wrong.  We honestly feel that young activists have a choice to get out there and do it themselves, they do not need an invitation from Rev. Al Sharpton.  Furthermore, many black youth of today are into the hip hop trend and not into being activists like young people back in the day.   However, it will no doubt change and they will have no choice but to become activists as more black men are killed by police across America.  We don't want that to happen, but that's what it took years ago, the more segregated we were, the more young black people were serious about speaking their mind and fighting for their rights.

According to The Root, Sharpton is not sure who will replace him after he exits the national stage, but he said that it’s not up to him to handpick his successor. That person “has to put in the work and earn it,” he said.  

In the meantime, we will keep you posted on further information on this issue.  God bless and thanks for reading SCR.
