It's nice to see award shows recognizing those who give back to the community!
BET handed out a well-deserved Humanitarian Award to the Reverend Al Sharpton Sunday night!
He was celebrated, in part, for his voter education efforts, his tireless pursuit of civil rights, and being of general service to the African American community for many decades!
And thanks for all your hard work!

LVMH owned perfume house Guerlain is being sued by anti-racism groups after Jean-Paul Guerlain dropped the n-bomb on TV.
During the French state TV interview, Guerlain was asked about his new fragrance Samsara, to which he replied: "I worked like a n****r. I don't know if n*****s have always worked like that, but anyway."
Because of Jean-Paul's insensitive comments, Al Sharpton and other US civil rights activists hope to meet with French president Nicolas Sarkozy to discuss what the perfumier said.
