In a diary obtained by the New York Post, Robert F. Kennedy tears into Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson saying they both, "give me the creeps." “Al Sharpton has done more damage to the black cause than [segregationist Alabama Gov.] George Wallace. He has suffocated the decent black leaders in New York,” continues RFK. “His transparent venal blackmail and extortion schemes taint all black leadership," RFK writes in a July 5th 2001 entry. RFK's screed continues calling Sharpton a "buffoon" who still stinks from the "stench" of his defense of Tawana Brawley, the black Dutchess County teen who falsely accused six white males of raping her in 1987. On Jesse Jackson, RFK cut right to the chase saying, "I feel like with Jesse, it's all about Jesse," he wrote.
