“We come to do the NYPD a favor. We trying to help you deal with the rotten apples,” Sharpton said on a stage set up near the Staten Island ferry terminal. “We told the mayor and everybody, they must reform police. This is about solutions. But let me tell you something: you cannot do it without hold accountable those that break the law. Now, either a chokehold is illegal or its not. If it’s illegal, then deal with it. If you won’t deal with it, then you’re making it legal.”

"My grandmother remembers the Arab world much differently than people view it today. She remembers a place known for its music, innovation, and intellectual abilities. I may be naive, but I want to help work toward unity in the Arab world— both between our countries and within our countries— so that we can get back to that place again." (Amman, Jordan)
