God help me, I agree with Al Sharpton

Well, half agree. That's still enough to make me queasy.

NEW YORK (AP) - The Rev. Al Sharpton denounced Paris Hilton's release from jail on Thursday, saying it had "all of the appearances of economic and racial favoritism."

"I think that it's both another glaring display of how race and money seem to get different treatments. There seems to be a different criminal justice system for some than others," Sharpton said.

I don't think race was as much a factor as money. Poor, obscure, dumb white women don't get to leave with an ankle bracelet.

Now, if Oprah drives drunk and has to serve all 45 days, THEN RevAl and I are in total agreement. I somehow don't think she'll consent to take part in my social experiment.

I guess Racist Sharpton is too stupid to realize that Paris got more time then most would have under the same circumstances.
