Civily Righteous: Rev. Al Sharpton

In true Sharpton style, when the political activist accepted his Humanitarian Award presented by State Farm from Chairman and CEO of BET Networks Debra Lee, he found a way to infuse a social message into his thank you. Speaking on voting in the upcoming election, his message was simple: "Don't do it for Obama, do it for your mama."
