Al Sharpton, the race hustler who resembles an ambulance chaser, has been a busy man lately with a number of deaths involving black men in the news, but a Brooklyn family appears to see the man for what he is.
The family of Akai Gurley, who was fatally shot recently in a housing project stairwell, has made it clear that Sharpton is not welcome at the man’s wake or funeral, according to TMZ. Sharpton has said he will deliver a eulogy at the wake.
“Al Sharpton came in, put his name on the situation, but has not even made one single call to the parents to Akai,” said Gurley’s aunt, Hertenceia Peterson.
She added that all Sharpton sees “is money and political gain and that he is turning the tragedy into a circus,” TMZ reported.
Yep, the family certainly appears to see the charlatan for what he really is.
Reverend Al responded to the family’s comments, saying he was contacted by Akai’s live-in girlfriend and mother of his daughter, Kimberly Ballinger.
“Sharpton and his team have been supporting us since day one, and we absolutely want him to attend the wake and funeral,” Ballinger told TMZ.
