Shapton takes 30 years to realize Democrats aren't helping blacks.

The minority party has been called out by Al Sharpton for keeping minorities down:

The Rev. Al Sharpton blasted Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean on Tuesday, saying that under his leadership, African-Americans have been excluded from top Democratic Party positions.

"I'm taking Dean to task right now for the lack of black inclusion at the highest levels of the Democratic Party," Sharpton told WWRL radio hosts Steve Malzberg and Karen Hunter. "It's the lowest in thirty years."

The Harlem firebrand and one-time presidential candidate said that as things stand now, the Republican Party is making more progress including blacks than Dean's team.

"We ought to have more to show [for our support]," he complained. "And we should ask why, as the Republicans, ironically, are running blacks [for office], that [Dean] has left blacks out of the top echelon of the Democratic Party."

Sharpton also said that Dean needed to apologize for racially charged remarks last February, where the top Democrat suggested that Republicans could attract blacks to their party if they summoned the "hotel staff."

Sharpton is getting terribly close to rational thought on the subject by recognizing that Republicans treat blacks with the respect and dignity they deserve by appointing talented minorites to merited positions while the Democrats patronize minorities by selectively lowering standards and showing remarkable hostility to Republican appointments of minorities to Attorney General, Secretary of State and the judiciary.

The Democrats only like blacks who vote for them.
