Reverend Al Sharpton and about 70 protesters gathered in front of the FOX building in New York City on February 19. The protest comes one day after the New York Post released a satirical cartoon depicting two White police officers shooting a chimpanzee with the words, “They’ll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill.”
Sharpton talks to protesters and the media outside of the New York Post headquarters.
“They could have met with dialogue, they have chosen to meet with confrontation. We did not choose that, we asked for clarity, they turned around and slammed the door in our face. We asked, ‘Why would you do this in such a time in this economic stimulus bill and the first African-American President?’ They called us names so we have no choice but to say that we cannot sit back.”
