African-American leader Rev. Al Sharpton says will flee if Trump wins

Rev. Al Sharpton and trumpRev. Al Sharpton told attendees at a Center for American Progress Action Fund event Thursday he would flee the country if Donald Trump won the election, in order to avoid being deported by Trump.

Sharpton, a Democrat, had positive feedback for many of the Republican presidential candidates until he got to Trump.

“If Donald Trump is the nominee, I’m open to support anyone [else], while I’m also reserving my ticket to get out of here if he wins, only because he’d probably have me deported anyway,” Sharpton told attendees, who responded in laughter.

Sharpton, who has participated in various national protests condemning police brutality, did not explain why he thinks Trump would deport him, though both New Yorkers have publicly shared their differences of opinion on various issues.

The Democrat is expected to endorse Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders for the party’s nomination and has spoken with both about their views on issues that relate especially to black voters.

    “Racial comments

    On Feb. 13th 1994, Sharpton stood before a crowd at Kean College in New Jersey, and told the student audience: “White folks was in the caves while we was building empires,” he said. “We built pyramids before Donald Trump even knew what architecture was…We taught philosophy and astrology [sic] and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it…Do some cracker come and tell you, ‘Well my mother and father blood go back to the Mayflower,’ you better hold your pocket. That ain’t nothing to be proud of, that means their forefathers was crooks.”[90]

    In yet another audio recording, Sharpton can be heard discouraging people from purchasing fried chicken from Chinese-owned restaurants or watermelons from Korean-owned shops: “We’re the black chicken friers of the universe. We gonna go buy some Colonel Sanders chicken. Then the Chinamen comin’ and[inaudible] … Koreans sell us watermelons. We eat watermelons all our lives. But they gonna come cut it up, put it in a bucket with a rubber band around it, and we gonna buy it like it’s somethin’ and we didn’t know what it was.”[91]
    During the Freddie’s Fashion Mart case/incident (see above), Sharpton said “We will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business.”[92]

    During the Tyisha Miller case, Al Sharpton compared the special prosecutor – attorney general Bob Abrams, to “Mr. Hitler.”[93][94]

    He has derided moderate black politicians close to the Democratic Party as “cocktail sip Negroes” or “yellow niggers.” [95]”
