Is your internet broke yet? I’d imagine your speed is clogged up because of the amount of discourse taking place due to the disturbing image of Al Sharpton engaging in a selfie. First of all, lets be clear, the selfie craze is over, especially the bathroom selfie. Al appears to be in a locker room of some sort he’s wearing a baggy fitted athletic support shirt that Nike wouldn’t approve of despite their logo being plastered on the front of it.
Hs shirt is actually baggy with a t-shirt under it. That’s interesting.
Usually when we see important figures in the mirror posing like this, some scandal is soon to follow. The fact that Al Sharpton was alive and relevant when Dr. King was alive but is now married to someone that could be the same age as one of Dr. Kings grandchildren and engaging in millennial behavior such as this, has me perplexed. Should a man who has experienced so much serious occurrences in Black American History be allowed to have this kind of fun? Should a figure like this be looked at in this light? The selfie and attire is a bit disturbing but it isn’t criminal. He is a Reverend and has a reputation.
Personally, I think too many more goofy moments like this in the social media era will tarnish his legacy more than it has already been. Is it selfish of me have higher expectations of him. had he been saying, “hey look at me, I used to weight 350lbs but now im half that size, you can be like me if you exercise right!” Would it be disturbing to see Minister Farrakhan out of character such as this? Where does the community stand with Al Sharpton? Please let us know.
