Reverend Al Sharpton spoke with Rickey Smiley about the recent events that have unfolded in Charlottesville, Virginia. Reverend Sharpton explains how Donald Trump has emboldened the white supremacists responsible for the past weekend’s disturbing rallies. He explains why we have to “organize from the bottom up,” and how focusing too much on bigger elections have cost us seats in senate and congress. Al also speaks on the possibility that we are headed toward a race war, and why that should not be the goal or something why advocate for.
