Quick Update: Al Strikes Again

In my last post, I spoke of Kelly Tilghman, the Golf Channel reporter who made a comment about lynching in relation to Tiger Woods. The Woods camp called it a "non-issue" and the Golf Channel seemed to agree, and the issue seemed ready to die. Then Spokesman for all things African American Al Sharpton got involved, and that's when the Golf Channel showed they have the same spine as MSNBC, NBC News, and CBS Radio (those are Mr. Imus's old employers). They have suspended Ms. Tilghman for two weeks.

When oh when are people going to stop giving Sharpton any credence? As one African American said to me, "who allowed him to become the spokesman for all blacks? I don't want him speaking for me."
