Maybe Buzzfeed missed it, but Sharpton has made many questionable remarks about Jews over the years.
From The Daily Caller:
“In the spirit of Donald Sterling do you think you should be banned from TV for all the racist stuff you’ve said over the years?” asked the interviewer, who questioned Sharpton outside of the White House Correspondent’s Dinner held earlier this month.
“What racist stuff?” Sharpton responded.
“When you referred to Jews as white interlopers,” the interviewer said.
Sharpton cautioned the reporter against misquoting him and clarified that he was only talking about one Jewish person.
They go on:
Sharpton has also made thinly-veiled references to Jewish people by calling them “diamond merchants” during the aftermath of the Crown Heights riots, which took place in Brooklyn in 1991. Sharpton, who led protests that led to the riots, said at the time “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house.”
Way to go, Buzzfeed.
"Freddy's Fashion Mart," "Jewish Interlopers" Al Sharpton?

They’d just find a way to blame Trump for that too.
