Saturday, a well known “grievance industry” profiteer was heard in Fort Worth Texas, following the tragic death of a black woman, Atatianna Jefferson, who was shot by a police officer. Sharpton was scheduled to speak at Jefferson’s funeral today, which was postponed.
“The funeral has been postpone because of a family dispute. This is not over. We are going to come and get what is ours,” Alfred Charles Sharpton Jr. said.
Sharpton was broadcasted over the loudspeaker with the organizers of the funeral memorial service, saying he would be in Fort Worth on Wednesday.
Unusual turn of events in Fort Worth. A crowd was told Rev. Al Sharpton would speak at an event downtown. Then a phone was held up to the microphone and Sharpton addressed the crowd from New York. pic.twitter.com/m3VM3V1Y5k
