“Very High-Level Shtick”; Noted Cultural Commentator Glenn Loury Goes Off On Noted Race-Baiter Al Sharpton

The Daily Wire recently reported that “Economist and Brown University professor Glenn Loury, fed-up with what he called the “very high-level shtick” of Al Sharpton, tweeted out a clip of himself ripping Sharpton while accusing the Democratic Party of “creating the careers of people like Al Sharpton, who broker the race card.”

Loury stated, “I think the politics of the Democratic Party is perfect for creating the careers of people like Al Sharpton, who broker the race card and the votes of black Democrats for the access that they can get and who played a certain kind of functional role in something that I think really poorly represents the interest of African-Americans rightly understood.”

In a video that went out on Twitter of Loury in discussion with fellow black commentator, Professor John McWhorter (about whom The Raging Patriot has previously written), Loury had the following to say: “If Al Sharpton were running around talking about charter schools; if he were running around urging African-Americans to adopt kids who don’t have any parents; if he were insisting that it’s possible for black kids compete effectively if they get the kind of instruction and support that they need to acquire the intellectual skills that allow them to compete in an exam school situation or anything like that; if he was going to find ex-offenders who were prepared to reject the gang life and affirm decent ways of living and foster relationships of guidance with young men who were not yet on the right path and so forth and so on; if he was working with the cops and not against the cops to try to keep the peace in some of these neighborhoods, I’d have more respect for him.”

Loury went on to say that ““But it’s a very high-level shtick. He’s refined it to perfection, and he’s out Jesse Jacksoning Jesse Jackson in the twenty-first century while the clock keeps ticking on poor black people, and the demagoguery that spews out of him is almost completely unrelated to the actual material needs of this population.
