Al Sharpton's press conference at Del Rio, Texas, was drowned out by protesters accusing him of stoking racism

Al Sharpton's speech at the Haitian migrant encampment in Del Rio, Texas, on Thursday was drowned out by protesters who accused him of using the border crisis to stoke racism.

Sharpton took a tour of the migrant camp on the U.S. southern border in Del Rio to "meet and pray with refugees in the wake of the humanitarian crisis," according to Wednesday press release from the civil rights organization National Action Network (NAN), which Sharpton founded in 1991.

After touring the situation with Democratic Del Rio Mayor Bruno Lozano, Sharpton held a press conference during which he accused Border Patrol of using tactics reminiscent of the slavery era, but his comments were overwhelmed by protesters who accused him of being "a disgrace" and "a racist."

Among the phrases hecklers hurled at Sharpton were "Why are you stoking racism where it doesn't exist?" and "How much money are you making out of this?"

"Del Rio is not a racist city," someone shouted. "Del Rio is a loving, caring community. We don't want your racism in Texas. Get out of here! Nobody wants to hear your racist nonsense in Del Rio!"

"He [incites] violence and riots," said Kelsey French, the wife of a Border Patrol agent, according to local Fox 29. "He is not pro-cop. Our community is very cop. We support our men and women in the green and the blue and every color that they wear. We love them. We don’t want him here we don’t want his trouble. Amen."

Sharpton spoke dismissively of the protesters, whom he accused of being "Trump supporters" and "right-wingers" who "can scream all they want."

Sharpton also said he wanted the Border Patrol to face an investigation while someone shouted that he is "a race-baiter."

Sharpton said on Wednesday's episode of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that he and his group intended to get to the bottom of the recent controversial photos some Democratic lawmakers have claimed show Border Patrol agents using whips against Haitian migrants, though they did not possess whips.

Despite assurances from Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz that border officials do not use whips, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Thursday that the Biden administration is prohibiting Border Patrol agents from using horses in the Del Rio sector amid Democratic outrage.

Not sure u can call a racist a racist if he is a unman of color. I say unman because he is not someone I look up to as a man. A man does the right thing not constantly the wrong.

He serves no useful purpose on this planet.

Everytime he opens his bigoted mouth, he sets race relations back for years.

He is so hateful that he turns non blacks into bigots.

Americans are sick and tired of him and people like him.

He needs to go home, pay his taxes, and shut the hell up.
