I just heard a story on NPR. Apparently, the Rev. Al Sharpton has so graciously volunteered to be an expert witness in the hate crime trial of Nicholas Minucci, the Howard Beach resident who is accused of beating a black man, Glenn Moore, and using the N-word.
What, you ask, could Big Al testify to? What is he an expert in? Why...the history of the N-word! Yes, he wrote a letter to the Queens DA saying that he will testify to the history of that word.
That's funny...I don't remember hearing that Sharpton was a scholar of African-American history or etymology. I do remember him being a serious camera ho' who will do anything for a photo op.
He is such a joke.
