Black pastor to race baiter Al Sharpton: You’re nothing but a pimp!
During a rally in Hartford, Connecticut this past weekend, a local black pastor confronted Al Sharpton saying, "you’re nothing but a pimp!" The pastor was angered when Sharpton asked those in attendance to donate $100 to the notorious race baiter's National Action Network (NAN) during what was supposed to be a protest concerning the five homicides of young people in the city over the past two weeks.
“I want to be here to see a memorial for the young people that have died. I want the names and their stories up so children can see they don’t want to be on that wall," Sharpton said at the Shiloh Baptist Church.
Pastor Marcus Mosiah Jarvis of Christ the Cornerstone Praise and Western Tabernacle, then confronted Sharpton as he walked down the center aisle of the church.
“How dare you ask the people of Hartford to give you their money! You’re nothing but a pimp!," Jarvis said.
Jarvis then accused Sharpton of using the rally as a cover for “coming into a community where people are struggling for jobs, struggling for money, and demanding money to speak.”
“Don’t you come up in here asking us for money,” Jarvis yelled at Sharpton.
Jarvis later told reporters that local efforts are essential to initiate change in the community.
“We’re setting in place classes where people can come for credit repair, establishing credit, home ownership, creating a resume, how to look for a job, mock interviews.
That’s how you empower people, not creating memorials,” Jarvis said.
