Once a race hustler, always a race hustler.
Despite an estimate $5 million net worth, civil rights “activist” Al Sharpton continues to play the victim, attacking Fox News as a racist enterprise at a Kennedy Center roast for long-time Democratic strategist James Carville.
The MSNBC host delivered the low blow while comparing Fox News to his employer, according to the Washington Examiner.
“It’s better than Fox,” Sharpton said.”Because over there, they’d make me drink from a separate water fountain.”

But the shakedown artist was just getting started with the racial “jokes,” as he took another cheap shot at Fox News when comparing his appearances on the network — “The O’Reilly Factor” — with that of CNN’s conservative commentator S.E. Cupp, who attended the roast.
“Both of us have appeared on Fox,” Sharpton said of Cupp. “But they treat us a little differently. They send a car for her. They ask me to drive it.”
He told the crowd he referred to those occasions as “driving Ms. Crazy.”
Sharpton also make a sarcastic remark about the roast being “what white folks do,” saying, “We actually marched to be a part of this?”
