Former NAACP leader accuses Sharpton and Jackson of ‘exploiting’ Trayvon Martin

Unlike Sharpton, who seems to have the uncanny ability to be an eyewitness to every one of these events, some of which have come back to bite him on the ass. I find it difficult to share his enthusiasm. 
Who really knows what happened in the Trayvon Martin case? The guy who shot this kid may be guilty has hell. Nobody knows for sure what happened. Except Barry, Al...and of course Jesse.

Barry just can't resist fanning the flames. First the Beer Summit and now this. 
..."if I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon." 

Let's just say the "Gettysburg address moment" has passed.

The remark was made simply to summon the black vote.  I can't remember any of the president's predecessors wading into these waters. Where was his outrage when Casey Anthony killed her daughter and got away with it?

The bottom line is if  Trayon Martin was killed by another black teen we wouldn't have heard a word about it.

The gentleman below Rev C.L. Bryant has taken a honest, level headed, approach to the Trayvon Martin situation. Meaning...Lets look at the real  facts.  Maybe we could all learn a lesson.  Too bad we don't have people like him in Congress.

C.L. Bryant

Former NAACP leader C.L. Bryant is accusing Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton of "exploiting" the Trayvon Martin tragedy to "racially divide this country."

"His family should be outraged at the fact that they're using this child as the bait to inflame racial passions," Rev. C.L. Bryant said in a Monday interview with The Daily Caller.

The conservative black pastor who was once the chapter president of the Garland, Texas NAACP called Jackson and Sharpton "race hustlers" and said they are "acting as though they are buzzards circling the carcass of this young boy."

Jackson, for example, recently said Martin's death shows how "blacks are under attack" and "targeting, arresting, convicting blacks and ultimately killing us is big business." (SEE ALSO: Jesse Jackson says Trayvon Martin 'murdered and martyred')

George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch captain, killed Martin, a 17-year-old black man who was unarmed at the time of his death, last month. Zimmerman has claimed to have shot Martin in self-defense and has not been charged with a crime.

But Bryant, who explores the topic of black-on-black crime in his new film "Runaway Slave," said people like Jackson and Sharpton are being misleading to suggest there is an epidemic of "white men killing black young men."

"The epidemic is truly black on black crime," Bryant said. "The greatest danger to the lives of young black men are young black men."

Bryant said he wishes civil rights leaders were protesting those problems.

"Why not be angry about the wholesale murder that goes on in the streets of Newark and Chicago?" he asked. "Why isn't somebody angry about that six-year-old girl who was killed on her steps last weekend in a cross fire when two gang members in Chicago start shooting at each other? Why is there no outrage about that?"

Bryant said he worries that "people like Sharpton and those on the left" will make Martin's death a campaign issue in the presidential race.

He speculated that they will "turn this evolving tragedy of this young man into fodder to say… if you don't re-elect Obama then you will have unbridled events or circumstances like this happening in the streets to young men wearing hoodies."

He also criticized President Obama for his "nebulous statement" responding to Martin's death that "if I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon."

"What does that mean?" Bryant asked. "What was the purpose in that?"
