Dr. Alveda King to Rev. Al Sharpton: “Look at the Greatest Assault on the Dignity of Black Women”

Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., today commented on recent remarks by the Rev. Al Sharpton. Rev. Sharpton criticized a celebrity oriented website for using the term “roboho” to describe a dress worn by singer and actress Beyonce.

“Rev. Sharpton says he’s concerned about the dignity of African American women; so am I,” said Dr. King. “While I wish role models of strength and beauty such as Beyonce would dress more modestly so that controversies like this wouldn’t happen in the first place, I would suggest to Rev. Sharpton that he look at the greatest assault on the dignity of black women today – abortion. We are three to four times more likely to have abortions as white women. Why is that? Rev. Sharpton needs to turn his attention to a problem that dehumanizes women and children everywhere and, in particular, has devastated the black community.”
