NO ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, NO BASEBALL … The Masters of the Race Card, Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson Call for Selig to Pull MLB All-Star Game Out of Arizona
How predictable was this … NO ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, NO PEACE, OR IS IT NO BASEBALL.
Al Sharpton and Jessee Jackson, the masters of the race card and race baiting opportunists, are looking to leach onto the Arizona anti-illegal law and cause further division. They think they have found a winning divisive and racial issue and will milk it for all they can.
Even though 59% of Americans and 70% of those who live in Arizona support the new anti-illegal immigration laws passed by AZ Governor Jan Brewer, Sharpton and Jackson look to shake down MLB and Bud Selig. In a NY Times/CBS poll, 60% of Americans responded that the AZ law was just right or did not go far enough. However, the two race baiting opportunists look to have the MLB All-Star game removed from Arizona in 2011.
The Rainbow PUSH Coalition appeals to Major League Baseball to take a public stand against the recently passed Arizona immigration law. We also urge you to move the scheduled 2011 all-star game from Diamondback Stadium in Arizona unless this law is repealed.
America’s democracy is based on the values of freedom and equality–a level playing field for all of its people. The passage of the Arizona immigration law is an affront to these principles, representing the most divisive and polarizing approach to immigration reform. It is morally reprehensible and will be challenged as unconstitutional in the courts. This law – and the social “movement” that has inspired it – will have a negative impact on all of America’s people.
Major League Baseball is truly an international sport. Well over 25% of MLB players are of Latino descent, and players, coaches, managers, and staff come from many countries other than the United States. From Jackie Robinson’s breakthrough moment in 1947 to today, they make major league baseball one of the world’s most popular sports. They come here legally, documented, with the single goal of showcasing their skills and contributing to the growth and success of Major League Baseball. They should not be subjected to humiliating and illegal harassment.
The Gateway Pundit brings up a interesting bit of data that maybe Sharpton & Jackson should address to blacks first, rather than supporting illegals to come into America and take away jobs … “Illegal immigrant families in the United States make more than black families”.
African Americans were paid a median household income of $32,000 in 2007. In the same year, the median household income for illegal immigrants was $37,000. With national unemployment hovering around 10 percent and black male unemployment at a staggering 17.6 percent, it’s not true that undocumented workers are doing the jobs that Americans won’t do. But, Al Sharpton doesn’t care about black people.
One would think that if Sharpton and Jackson cared about black people they would be pushing the first black elected President Obama as to why unemployment numbers are so poor for blacks. But instead, for the two media clowns, it is all about the attention.

What you talking about? Scared Monkeys… Baseball games are empty already. All I see is empty stands on TV. Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson want to take credit for bad attendance records?
They should use these two in a remake of Dumb and Dumber
[...] No Illegal Immigration, No Baseball The Masters of the Race… How predictable was this NO ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, NO PEACE, OR IS IT NO BASEBALL. [...]
If they don’t have a baseball game, who will Scared Monkeys make fun of when Obama doesn’t throw out the first pitch? For your sake and some great material, I hope it gets played.
SM: Great point Jackhammer … Maybe Al Sharpton can throw out the first pitch. Although I hear he’s only good at throwing the race card
And why shouldn’t they milk it ??? They are a couple of BOOBS !!!
When you are a “welfare pimp” there comes a time that people treat you like the little boy who cried wolf. All these two pimps are doing is trying to find a new group to give them money.
The two of them look like to kalpoe brothers in a couple of years !!! Aruba still sucks !!!
[...] to portray the AZ law SB1070 as bigoted and unpopular, as race baiters and opportunists like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton look to shake down any one who dare be in favor of the rule of law and border [...]
As a black man all i want to say to these so called black leaders that plans to line their pockets with protest money from the so called hurting & discriminated against people. The black people are sick sick of this s**t. We have fought our fight the right way and also stood by the reason we fought and i say again the right way! We were not criminals marching in the streets, most of these people protesting are illegals and a person that’s willingfully helping them are AI, criminals them selves. You wanna know why blacks are so mad? First of all, the majority of us are boreder line poor and for an illegal immigrant to come in and lower the wage pool allows employers to let the higher paid employee go. This is why pookie and many of his friends resorts to seeling drugs and now he’s the criminal. Oh but of course, we should let the premeditated criminal provide for his family(illegal immigrants)!AND OH YES, the amnesty thing, Pookie and his buddies were locked up for trying to provide for their families so are those guys gonna get amnesty!! Think about that A** Holes.
