HOUSTON, Texas — Reverend Al Sharpton lambasted President Donald Trump and the NFL on Tuesday while delivering his encomium at George Floyd’s funeral. The tear-jerking sepulture took place at Houston’s Fountain of Praise Church. Donning a black and white robe, the 65-year-old civil rights activist accused Trump of bombarding protesters with rubber bullets and using the bible to generate votes for the upcoming election. “We are fighting wickedness in high places!” Sharpton fumed as the crowd erupted.

“You take rubber bullets and tear gas to clear out peaceful protesters and then take a Bible and walk in front of a church and use a church as a prop? Wickedness in high places.”

Sharpton also implored NFL owners to give former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick his old job back. Kaepernick, if you recall, was ostracized a few years ago after he genuflected during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial injustice against black people.

Realizing the league f*cked up, Commissioner Roger Goodell issued an apology a couple of days ago, saying the NFL was “wrong” for discouraging players to denunciate peacefully. That’s obviously not enough. “It’s nice to see some people change their minds,” Sharpton said.

“The head of the NFL said, ‘Yeah, maybe we was wrong. Football players — maybe they did have the right to peacefully protest.’ Well don’t apologize, give Colin Kaepernick [his] job back!”

“You sorry, then repay the damage you did to the career you stood down,” Sharpton continued. “Because when Colin took a knee, he took it for the families in this building. And we don’t want an apology. We want him repaired.”

Sharpton’s panegyric was made shortly after he introduced the families of Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Botham Jean, Pamela Turner, Michael Brown and Ahmaud Arbery; all of whom were African Americans killed by police or those with ties to law enforcement agencies.

Several celebrities were in attendance, including “Beat Shazam” host Jamie Foxx and R&B artist Ne-Yo who performed a special rendition of Boyz II Men’s “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday.” Funeral expenses were paid by boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.

As for the cadaver of honor?

Sharpton described Floyd as being an “ordinary brother” from the projects who “nobody thought much about.” Floyd, who’s black, was asphyxiated to death by white police officer Derek Chauvin on May 25th. The murder was captured on video, sparking riots and protests worldwide.

Floyd, the father of 5 children, and Chauvin once worked together and they’ve known each other for years.

  4. john hansberry

    I don’t believe Trump ever pointed a gun at a pregnant woman during a home invasion…George Floyd on the other hand.

  5. Al is a race pimp that literally makes a living fanning the flames to increase racism.

  6. Who let al sharpton out of the nursing home again???!???!!

  7. I am a black man and to me all those funerals look like democratic conventions… These same people would have had a fit if Michael Brown’s parents condemned Obama for their son death!!! What’s Next Demoncrats?🤔

  8. Al Sharpton has made himself rich pimping poverty and racism in America… and has never spent a dime of that wealth on helping anyone but himself.

  9. blue diamond gem

    Demonic Race-hustling shake down artist sorry ass SOB to ever preach from a pulpit.

  10. Just look at Kaepernick last year of stats. Was one of the worst qb seasons ever. He was benched. He barely made the team in the first place.

  11. Mariano Talavera

    Blk People… We Demand An Apology…

    Wht People… Were Sorry…

    Blk People… NO! WE WANT MORE!!!!

    WHT PEOPLE… ECONOMY CLASS TICKET TO AFRICA… TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!777

  12. Reverend Racist💩

  13. Al SHarpton BIGGEST FOOL EVER …PERIOD

  14. Kaepernick has a better chance of being VP for Dementia Joe Biden than getting another starting QB job in the NFL.

  15. James Ashbaugh

    YO, Al baby, the NFL would still have KAEPERNICK employed had he been a much much better athlete and player. HE obviously did NOT know how to be a team player. THE NFL SAYS “NO” or they risk losing millions and millions of viewers. As a role model for small children, a football player MUST show RESPECT for our flag, national anthem, and our country overall. For SHAME on you AL for thinking otherwise .

  16. Lol. Kapernick was an average qb when he played.
    Look at his stats. He wasn’t a great qb by any means.
    The NFL is about to lose their main source of income. The season ticket holders. Lose the ticket holders and everything will fall.
    Hope these athletes don’t start complaining when salaries are cut.

  17. You Al are an embarrassment.

  18. A criminal being treated as a hero & lots of grandstanding plastic plebs, Brilliant

  19. Walter Thompson

    A tribute to meth, delivered by cocaine Al Sharpie.

  20. Hey Sharpton, its EXACTLY people like you that keeps bringinging up race!

  21. Who gives a f*ck about this loser?

  22. Amen 🙏🏾

  23. AL did a great job in the name of Jesus 🙏🙏🙏🙏

  24. What a nice way to spend a morning honoring our best new hero! Let’s now take a moment, sit back and think about how this all started, OK? Our beloved recently departed ‘Big Man, Angel George Floyd’ served YEARS in prison for gun and drug charges. SEVERAL drugs were in his system when he took his dirt nap. Stuck his gun in a pregnant White woman’s stomach while he robbed her at home. Bad paper passer.This, folks, is who our liberals are deifying. Remember this in November. THESE are the anti America left who dearly want make us into just another 3rd world country with no laws. Yes, them.

  25. Some Black Lives Matter

    I understand where Sharpton is comin from but a funeral is the wrong place for that shit

  26. How can you honor someone that pulled a violent brutal armed home invasion on a pregnant woman all in front of the woman’s one year old daughter, yet ignore a man like David Dorn who lived a life of honorable service? You know why people treat the black community differently? This is why. It has nothing to do with your skin.

  27. Remember everyone satan loves you lol. This is all bullshit.

  28. Once Al sharpton gets involved it loses all credibility

  29. Sharpton doesn’t speak for me. They say President Trump doesn’t know God, well I don’t feel this man’s Christians walk with God at all. He is a hater from the pit of darkness. Instead of speaking God’s Word, he is speaking Worldly society words of hate and discord.

  30. The most racist person in the world al sharpron !!!! Fact

  31. StalinTheMan0fSteel

    Uncle Tom

  32. Rev Sharpton is amazing! What a beautiful tribute!

  33. Anthony Castellano

    Any Black person who supports and believes in Al Sharpton is a flat out racist ! Al could give 2 shits about Black people . It’s all about the hustle !

  34. That racist piece of human garbage “reverand” Al Sharpton delivering messages of division and hate. No better way to disrespect the life of George Floyd than by putting this ass clown up on a pedestal to further root hate in our country. But he’s a member of the woke club so he gets a pass. Do me a favor and listen to this trash but substitute the words “black” with “white”. See how long before you idiots realize who the real racist people are in this country.

  35. Al Sharpton is synonymous with two words. Vulture snd puke! Any African Americans who go along with his crap are nothing more than useful idiots. Sharpton is only interested in his wallet. Nothing else. He greatly diminishes the memory of George Floyd with his hijacking of a funeral for national exposure to benefit himself.

  36. God bless, Rev al sharpton 🙏🙏

  37. nice sermon mr sharpton

    sick of white folks keepin us down

    trump gotta go

  38. If “white folks” was keeping black folks down in America, why then was there nothing but warfare and slavery in the parts of Africa, where no white man ever went, until we convinced Zulus, Arab muslims and their Bantu offspring to stop raiding other tribes, enslaving those they once killed, and taking them to Zanzibar for sale to muslims and Brazil?

  39. George Floyd is in hell right know paying for his crimes.

  40. @Pepe the Frog: Brother George Floyd was a faithful Christian.Maybe brother George did not attend church service’s weekly.Only our great loving and merciful.Lord Jesus Christ can judge us.So we let him be judge.May he forgive us our sin’s.R.I.P.Brother.

  41.

How does he makec his money? Guish golly beaver said to wally, he s an honest man but inside hes a satanist, actually satan is better least when u deal with satan ya know your being screwed over by someone whose only interest is himself!

  42. God bless you Rev. Al Sharpton!!!! I love your Courage, Your Boldness to speak the truth to the whole world. These wickedness must Stop in America. We say a big nooooooo to Racism. No Justices, No Peace. Tell them Rev. Al Sharpton. Wickedness in high places.

  43. Giving a drug addicted felon who put a gun to a pregnant woman’s belly while his Homie robbed the womans home ANGEL WINGS aka making him a patron saint and a role model for the African American community sounds like a true oxymoron!!!!

  44. OH My GOD!!!…Preach Rev. Sharpton!!!!!!

  45. 염세주의자

    George Floyd broke into a pregnant woman’s house, punched her in the stomach, and robbed her at a gunpoint, not to mention other crimes he had done. He was no hero or a martyr that deserves such funeral or protests or riots that are happening worldwide. He was no better than Charles Manson and he is burning ,not resting,in hell for eternity.

  46. What the hell does Al Sharpton even do? What church is he even a reverend of? Who actually follows this sham?

  47. Jonathan Hughes

    I’m holding a white lives matter movement because everyone supporting black lives matters so I’m supporting White lives matter I feel very offended and I feel that all of you who support the black lives matter movement very racist towards the White lives matter movement that I’m holding what a bunch of racists

  48. This is a very difficult situation for me because while I 100% want equality and respect for everyone white or blaxk….I find it hard to feel sympathy for this man seeing as how even though he didn’t deserve to be killed by chauvin at that moment he still didn’t live his life as a good person….it’s a shame he had to die and it’s a shame he didn’t live his life better
