On Monday, TMZ inteviewed Civil Rights leader Al Sharpton. During the interview, TMZ asked Sharpton if he thought President Donald Trump was, in fact, racist.
“You don’t have to spray paint the ‘N’ word over the Oval Office or sleep with a KKK hood to be a racist,” Sharpton responded. “If you have racist policies, you say racist things, within a racist manner, you are a racist. Period. End of story.”
When TMZ tweeted out the story, people automatically jumped on Sharpton and his hypocrisy.

Again, looking pretty chummy together.
He is too. So he should know.

It’s possible for a black person to be racist?!
He needs to grow up

Or act his age and not his shoe size.

Pot meet kettle.

He likes to deflect.

Ain’t that the freaking truth?

Sharpton makes his money by promoting racism
— Frank LaNasa (@Big48FrankEEE) January 16, 2018
He perpetuates racism because, without it, he would have no “job.”
Pot calling Kettle Black. #TMZ

This coming from the biggest race bait champion on earth. Hey Sharpy, Tawana Brawley called to say, bitch is you for real?

Sharpton was probably triggered.
How quiet has the Rev been now that he's no longer the White House butt boy!

Sucks to suck.
Ohh the irony of this
— SCHNEIDE (@schneide1717) January 16, 2018
“Irony” seems to be his middle name.
Coming from the biggest racist of all. Sharpton hates white people. Screw him
— D. Zarlingo (@dzarlingo17) January 16, 2018
Because he believes every white person is oppressing him.
I am shocked, SHOCKED to see a filthy race hustler call someone a racist.
If you hear a dog whistle every time the wind blows, you are the dirty dog Al.

Them some fightin’ words.
The seven people (“white interlopers,” right “Rev?”) killed at Freddie’s Fashion Mart would take issue with Sharpton’s hypocrisy. https://t.co/8Pt8NAdnuj
