Al Sharpton won't rule out running for president in 2020: 'I never rule anything out'

  • 767 Views

Al Sharpton won't "rule out" running for the Democratic presidential nomination. It is not clear how serious he is. He is well-known for his racy speeches. This time, his words can have double-meaning, too. While he said that he "is not ruling it out," he also added at the same time, that he "never rules anything out."

Sharpton was born in 1954, and since his young age, he is a civil rights activist. But since Sharpton has a pretty diverse personality, he never limited himself to "just" politics. From 1973 to 1980, he was James Brown's tour manager. He also hosts his daily national talk radio program, named Keepin' It Real with Al Sharpton

He clearly considers himself as a "warrior" for the rights of "his people."

Many politicians and political commentators call him a "radical" and "an extremist"; for example, one commentator from The Boston Globe, Derrick Z.Jackson, named him "the black equivalent of Richard Nixon and Pat Buchanan."

Sharpton is not only a "fighter for the Black cause". He is also well-known for his controversial speeches. In 1994, at Kean College in New Jersey, he said, quoting directly, that "white folks was in the caves while we was building empires." During the same speech, he also said: "We built pyramids before Donald Trump even knew what architecture was. We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it."

Buzzfeed News wrote recently about him and his stance on modern politics in the USA:

Sharpton's feeling about where the Democratic Party is in relation to Trump is no secret. This year, on a recent visit to the United Kingdom, Sharpton told the Guardian that Trump would likely Keep America Great because Democrats are "too tame to deal with an untamed opponent." And he’s run before, citing among other things, a need to insert his voice at a time where the party had seemed insincere about its declared direction. That year, he also gave one of the more memorable speeches at the 2004 Democratic convention, saying he ran in part to show poor children who grew up like he did that they can also run for president of the United States.
