Antagonist Al Sharpton now claims ‘battered race syndrome’


Stepping up the rhetoric to fan the flames of America’s racial divide, the Rev. Al Sharpton has invented a new affliction to describe U.S. race relations: “battered race syndrome.”

Sharpton announced this new disability on his radio show Tuesday:

“Some of us have battered race syndrome. We’ve developed, so many of us, a loser’s complex. It’s almost like the battered syndrome when people battered by their mate, they just automatically get ready for being battered, never occurring to them that they are full human beings and shouldn’t be submitting and subjecting themselves to that.

“But once you create the mentality that you supposed to tolerate a whipping, a beating, abuse, that you don’t even complain about it or report it ’cause you think you deserve it. Well, some of us have battered race syndrome. We can’t win, ain’t gonna win, that ain’t gonna work, nothing’s gonna work, duh duh duh, because we have battered race syndrome. We’ve beaten ourself into defeatism. So they don’t have to beat us, we beat ourselves with our own battered syndrome of we can’t win.

“I don’t know what marching gonna do. Well then, why’s everybody else marching and getting their stuff through? Because they know if they go out there and raise the temperature somebody gonna have to deal with them, but you don’t think you qualify for that ’cause they beat you down.”

Sharpton asked “those that don’t have that syndrome” to participate in an Aug. 24 march in Washington to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Somehow it’s hard to imagine the vocal Sharpton as being “battered,” since he’s usually the one stirring up the trouble.
