Sharpton is pissed about "roboho" remark

So the other day we posted about Badonkadonkcé ripping off Kylie's stage show when she performed at the BET Awards in this Styx-cum-Tron robo-suit.

So I guess TMZ used the term "Roboho" to describe Beyoncé's outfit. Personally, I thought it was well put but Rev. Al was pissed.

He says the term was "racist and misogynistic." Oh, c'mon, Al !

And while I was happy to see Rev. Al at Bloombergs side during the press conference for the two white cops that were shot, Al still needs to chill the F out and choose his battles wisely. You needn't call in the cavalry for "roboho", Al.

The Rev. seems to have a lot of time on his hands, maybe he should start a blog?

There is no deep intrinsic hate in the term "roboho" whatsoever. And I'm not denying that there IS hate out there still in the world, but I think he's looking in the wrong places now. Ever since the Imus thing, he's on a tear and I think he's supplanting race where no one else would even think of it and stirring the pot just for the sake of stirring.
