Al Sharpton and Michael Eric Dyson Get Political at Aretha Franklin's Funeral


Rev. Al Sharpton urged the Black community to get registered and vote in the mid-term elections in memory of Aretha Franklin while Michael Eric Dyson dragged Donald Trump and took thinly veiled swipes at Barack Obama for sending a letter that was read aloud instead of intending Aretha Franklin's funeral service in person...

As far as other couples, The Carters are on the run, the West’s have been cancelled, and the Beakz’ weren’t invited.

McCain's daughter threw some serious shade at Trump during her eulogy....damn I loved it!

Dyson calling (he that shall remain nameless) a dopey doppelganger. Priceless.

Glad Al's ignorant ass cleared up he really does know how to spell.

I'm just sayin Aretha deserved more than a funky ass letter,she contributed to his campaign and who can forget that epic performance in the cold at his inauguration but,I'm not surprised Obama his no more use for the black community. SORRY! Not sorry for my comment.

What a sad spectacle.... the Queen of Soul laid to rest but the brothers still out there with no decorum or couth about themselves...

Rest well Queen.

It was a black spectacle that’s what it was ... it was inappropriate to think you can lobby people to vote at a funeral ... it was ridiculous and I would be embarrassed in my grave... Al Sharpton and the rest believe they got the power and influence and audience for people to sway away from Trump ... dead wrong on that one

@11:24 Could not have said it better

OK, I'ma say this. I know President Obama didn't attend and President Clinton did. Let's be honest tho, ya'll; truly honest. Ya'll know how we love us some Barack, straight up, like for real. You know good and hell well with all our Aunties up in there and all the brothers too, ain't no damn way President Obama could have attended without there being some serious disruption throughout. Your Auntie would have wanted a hug & a selfie, your Uncle and cousins would have made his hand and his back raw from dapping him up so much, and the brothers would have wanted to get close enough to Chelle to tell the bros that couldn't make it "how fine she is" and smelled like cocoa butter. While I would've loved to see him there too, I truly feel like Aretha would understand. There's places she couldn't & didn't go for those same reasons. I'm sure their relationship counted where it truly mattered.

Barry: Michelle we have been cordially invited to attend our Queens funeral.
Michelle: Whaaaat Beyoncé died.
Barry: No, no Michelle calm down. I'm talking about Aretha.
Michelle: Well is Beyoncé performing?
Barry: No I only see real singers on the program.
Michelle: Well send a letter we can't make it.

@12:34 Yeah! Ok he didn't mind it when he was running for office, these are the same people who love and admired him and he gladly took pictures with and gave the daps. I'll just leave this post alone because you have so many people who will literally try to fight you if you say something against Obama.

Lol the Obamas don't have time for all of this their to busy shaking their stanking asses @ the Beyonce concerts.

He nor his wife never did a fuckin thing for blacks. God knows the only way he woulda shown up is if it benefitted them. Not sure how their presence would be anymore of a disturbance than anybody elses. Clintons got SS rolling with them too. Maybe they couldn't find anybody to watch their daughter the one that is always in the papers high and drunk, twerking and making out all over the place.

No reason for anybody to leave the conversation; it's healthy for us to disagree. We are not a monolith. And to that point, you best believe Bill was there in the spirit of self service too. He will do anything to be at the biggest, black AF event around. I don't find it offensive that he repped the Presidency speaking at one event and Obama did so at another. And frankly, we all knew yesterday was not gonna start nowhere near on time and go long AF, you know how we do. Clinton did not speak at McCain's funeral, but Obama did. They were completely different affairs. One was a homegoing service true to our people's traditions, the other a matter of state. Both deserved the dignity which they demanded and I for one ain't mad at nobody for it.

Obama didn't do sh*t for black people & Trump definitely not going to do sh*t for us,all I can say is stay prayed up & take care of U & yours because no one else is going to do it. With that being said everyone have a safe Labor Day weekend.

or they could of done what every body else with shit to do did... say their part and dipped. Shoot people had time to go home, eat, take a nap change their clothes and come back or maybe they thought they would get the chance to catch Aretha's body while it was on tour coming to the city near them. That was just ridiculous changing caskets and outfits like that.

Obama is a traitor for not attending Aretha's funeral. My respect goes for the Clintons. Our black president could not attend our icon's fine is disrespect.

I benefited big time during both of Obama's presidential terms. This temporary tax cut that many of you probably agreed with is going to hurt like hell. Obviously everyone has different drives and ambitions. Don't blame others for your own shortcomings!

Black folks will progress just as soon as all the coons, sell-outs, agents, and bootlicks die off. Then all the blacks folks left will rejoice and move forward.

I think the Obama's could have came and left early. Aretha supported him through out his presidency. For some reason, they follow Jay and Bey. I voted for him and dont regret it. I do know one thing. Seems like Obama did alot for gays and trans folks. It's like he openend up the flood way for their bullshit and their fake ass rights.
