SHAKE DOWN: Sharpton’s Paid THOU$AND$ to Not Cry ‘Racism’ At Large Corporations

Maybe this POS is trying to raise money to pay his $4.5mil in back taxes.

Reverend Al Sharpton is being paid thousands of dollars to not cry ‘racism’ at large corporations that are in the spotlight, it has been claimed.

For more than 10 years, firms have reportedly handed over enormous donations and consulting fees to the activist preacher’s National Action Network (NAN)

In return for their cash, they have received Sharpton’s supposed influence in the black community – or more often, his silence on the matter, it is reported.

‘Al Sharpton has enriched himself and NAN for years by threatening companies with bad publicity if they didn’t come to terms with him,’ said Ken Boehm, chairman of the National Legal & Policy Center, a watchdog group in Virginia that has produced a book on the Harlem minister.

Recently, Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal met with Sharpton after leaked emails in the Sony hack apparently showed her mocking President Obama in a series of racially-charged exchanges.

These exchanges included apparent remarks that the President only likes movies with black actors and subject matter, such as Django Unchained and 12 Years A Slave.

The leak, which also revealed that British actor Idris Elba could be set to play the next James Bond, reportedly left Pascal and her colleagues ‘shaking in their boots’ and ‘afraid of the Rev’.
