    MRDURIGHT,
    I appreciate your feedback sir and I am very familiar with that footage. My question has nothing to do with your cynical anwser. It was genuine. But of course I expected an anwser such as you gave. Good day

    Al Sharton needs to retire. Blacks have more opportunities than white people.

    Of course you can go; it is not your color that is stopping you. It is that you are not educated in these matters. No one stopping you from an education.

    HL-

    If you ever took the opptunity to look at old footage of the civil rights movement you would see black and white walking hand in hand so no you would not be barred.

    al tells all his folks that they cant succeed cause the white man is holding them down..... well, i say they can succeed, look at obama, colin powell, condi rice, bob johnson, oprah,
    michael jordan, denzel washington. all examples of those who put in hard work to get to where they are at. al's message of doom doesnt work like it used to.

    Al Sharpton would be unemployed if the fires of black racialism ever died down.

    So, can I attend? I'm white but heck I'd like to attend to see what folks have to say. But, can I attend since it says "Black Summit". I'm not being funny, really, could I attend or would I be barred?
