Something to agree with Sharpton on?

I never thought the day would come when I agreed with Al Sharpton.  As many of you may have heard NBA player Gilbert Arenas was being investigated for have a firearm(s) in the locker room. He is upset with the media and Al Sharpton for critizing him about the incident. See the following excerpt from Yahoo Sports

“It’s been easy for me,” he said. “If I believed all the stories, of course it would be hard. That’s why we’re so upbeat, because we know what’s out there is way far from the truth.”

Arenas was upset the Rev. Al Sharpton told the New York Daily News, “The NBA needs to stand up and send a strong message by dealing with this situation.”

“For a leader, especially a black leader, to make a comment like that, I don’t think it was fair,” Arenas said. Arenas also wants an apology from the media he claims is “slandering me.”

I could not agree with Al Sharpton more.

PS:  Arenas was suspended after doing some pre-game antics which involved using his fingers like a gun.
