Al Sharpton is getting slammed for politicizing the eulogy he delivered at the funeral for Tyre Nichols in Memphis Wednesday.
Sharpton posed that the “white side of Memphis” is treated very differently from “the black community” in Memphis.
“I believe that if that man [Tyre] had been white,” he said at the televised funeral, “you wouldn’t have beat him like that that night.”

National radio host Todd Starnes criticized Sharpton as a “professional race agitator claiming to be a man of the cloth” who turned the funeral into a “political rally.”
“Al Sharpton’s remarks were vulgar,” Starnes tweeted. “The family of Tyre Nichols deserved better. Absolutely shameful.”
Starnes also commented on Vice President Kamala Harris, who Sharpton invited to give a few words.“Poor Kamala was in Memphis and ended up playing second fiddle to professional race agitator Al “Tawana” Sharpton,” Starnes added.
