In recent days I have heard Jesse, Al and the other race hustlers compare Zimmerman to the murderers of Emmett Till and Florida as Apartheid, just to name a couple unbelievable comparisons. Tavis says America doesn't care about the life of a young black man. My question to these professional rabble rousers who claim we live under the worst oppression in the world and it is comparable to its worst era....
Question: Is this the best ya got? Is this case your best example to prove your point.
A decent man whose racial makeup is more black than Homer Plessy suffers a life threatening attack and defends himself resulting in the unfortunate death of a black man, his attacker. And this is the worst racial oppression on earth? If anything this proves the opposite. If the race peddlers, who constantly beg for an honest and open debate about race are so desperate for examples of the worst racial conditions in history, that they would settle for the Zimmerman case as the first high profile Black oppression case since OJ and Rodney King, two decades ago, then the age of Obama must be an era where Blacks have never been treated better by Whites anywhere on earth, ever.
Today our President, that is, the President of all Americans, of all races said this:
When Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said, This could've been my son. Another way of saying that is, Trayvon Martin could've been me 35 years ago. And when you think about why, in the African-American community, at least, there's a lot of pain around what happened here, I think it's important to recognize that the African-American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn't go away.
That is a pretty fair characterization of "Hate" .. Racial Hate. A person ( Black Person) that witnesses or experiences something negative regarding another person of a particular race. They then make a generalization about that race and apply it to other if not all people in that race and although they might claim they wish that entire race were different, no matter what occurs in the future or how much time passes, the original animous remains, forever. That is Racial Hate.
I once heard someone describe anger as unresolved pain, hate as unresolvable pain and fear as the anticipation of pain or hurt. We would like to believe Obama's promise of 2008 that a vote for him was a transformational sacrament. We now learn from his very mouth that you will always be guilty as long as your skin is not the same color as his.
I've noticed even many legal pundits that consider the case against Zimmerman ridiculous are bending over backwards to at least consider the possibility that some of the accusations against Zimmerman might be true. I'd like to look at some of the key points that they posit and why I think they are weak.
Some, including the juror on CNN, have said Zimmerman was too overzealous or a wannabe cop. To bolster the latter point, they imply he has a macho complex or small man's complex that explains why he would carry a gun or stick his nose in others business. Unless you consider all neighborhood watch programs bogus for starters, I think this is a way for non gun owning narcissists to explain away the personality of a person who clearly cared about others, who regularly volunteered for others including black children and far from idolizing police, he challenged the Police Department over a forgotten black homeless man that he claimed was mistreated by officers. Where was Jesse then when there were no cameras around? It was in his nature to get involved and care for others and when his wife witnessed another woman victimized by criminals in their complex, he offered help and chose to join a neighborhood watch which was recommended by local Police and by most American Police departments. Get involved. Well, he did. Now the Yuppies who are too self absorbed to get involved take pot shots at Wannabe cops.
To the former point on over zealousness. Although this is supposed to buttress the wannabe cop who is just itching to murder someone like Dirty Harry, I don't see that either. The most oft cited example was the debate over "following". Two things to consider. The "four minutes" in Mark O'Meara's closing and the remark the juror made on CNN about the mixed message the operator gave Zimmerman.
The four minutes was the time from which Zimmerman told the dispatcher Martin ran from the curve on the driveway, then around the first apartment and off down the long breezeway, out of sight of Zimmerman until the first 911 call about two people fighting. It would take just seconds to run from the street 10 or 15 yards then to the right around the corner and out of zimmerman's sight. Had He hopped out at that moment, and pursued Martin, that would have been dangerous and overzealous. Yet he waited. The dispatcher first said, don't follow him,...but then asked is he still in sight?
The defense argued persuasively that Zimmerman had no intention of pursuing, following and confronting Trayvon. The dispatcher implied it would be helpful if Zimmerman had a vantage point to view Trayvon until the Police arrived. After several minutes, Zimmerman stepped out of his car, walked across the 10 or 15 yards of sidewalk to the place where the two walkways met so he could look down the long breezeway and see if he could spot the individual who we might all assume was four minutes away. Instead, Martin was just around that corner and that's when he approached Zimmerman, verbally threatened his life, and then attacked him. He either lied in wait until he heard the car door and foot steps or doubled back after having spotted Zimmerman exit the vehicle.
The other lingering characterization is the Giant white monster attacking the small innocent child. Trayvon has been listed at different proportions as has Zimmerman, but his own family listed him at 6'3". When you see the 7-11 surveillance video as he buys his Tea, he towers over the Hispanic man behind the register. Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat is variously listed as 6'3". Zimmerman has been listed as 5'6" or 5'7" and at first as an incredible hulk of 260 pounds, which would make him about the size of actor Jack Black, but even heavier to the point of being clinically obese. In actuality he weighed about the same as Trayvon. The media's attempt to make him the child abusing giant seemed to backfire here.
I remember when I was in High School, there was a Senior from a cross town school that we knew as a tough guy that on a Saturday night with a few beers might pick a fight with someone. One summer night he had a road rage episode with a man nearly twice his age. The middle aged man driving his daughters home appeared to be a domestic and docile suburbanite. The two 17 year olds yelled at him chased him and eventually forced him off the road. When the older man got out with his hands raised, asking them to leave him alone, the 17 year old approached him threw a swing and the older man ducked and the punch missed, the second punch grazed the older man's shoulder. The older man then threw a single punch to the face that by some freak of nature killed the 17 year old instantly. Witnesses rushed over and attended to the situation and called the police. As the story passed around town, the general consensus was one, how tragic, two how random, and three, it served as a reminder to the other teenagers I knew,... Don't forget that picking a fight with someone, anyone, can end bad and sometimes be the final tragic mistake in a young life. Who could blame the middle aged father? I had sympathy for this family man that he was forced to carry this burden from that point on.
I feel sorry for Mr. Zimmerman that he was forced to carry this burden.
So in this case of George Zimmerman, you have an older, out of shape man with no intention of confronting this individual, who comes round the corner in the dark and is then faced with a rapidly approaching man the size of a large professional athlete, with the physical abilities of an athlete and although the battle to bring forth the evidence over a prosecution leaning Judge, he was proud of the many fights he had been in and won against other younger stronger opponents. In this case, Trayvon clearly believed this creepy ass cracker would not only fail to put up much of fight, he believed he could wail on him, crush his skull or worse as the whim of the moment struck him. Zimmerman didn't want to die though.
Zimmerman was asked in an interview if he would have acted any different had Trayvon not been black. It should be noted, Zimmerman's response to the dispatcher seemed uncertain, "He looks...um...black" in an uncertain voice. Had he been a vicious bigot, would he not have said triumphantly, "Oh Yeah, He is definitely a black man, we got one here!" But he didn't. But the question is ridiculous if you believe Zimmerman feared for his life as his skull repeatedly struck the cement and he let out those blood curdling screams for help. If you believe you are about to take leave of this world at the hands of an attacker, do you even for a split second ask yourself if that person is of one race or another, that you will just submit to your fate as a dead man.
I am not propping up George Zimmerman as man of the year, but his profile comes across as not only a thoroughly decent and giving man, but a man who volunteers to help people of all races, especially black people. He does not fit Eric Holder's desired profile no matter how hard Holder searched for just one witness who could say, "No, when he left the charity that helps black youths and went home, he tried to scrub himself white and donned a Klan hoodie and stood in his kitchen alone shining his illegal firearms".
So this little mixed race samaritan is Bull Conner? Can't these race hustlers do better than this. Jesse, Al Sharpton, Farakhan... all millionaires, driving fancy cars, with beautiful mistresses in the passenger seat on their way home to their mansions and very little time to behave like the members of the clergy they claim to be,... and yet their job is what? An endless search for the next Bull Connor to perpetuate the myth that a young black man's greatest challenge is to avoid the army of white attackers that want to kill them.
As Pat Buchannen pointed out today, the number of White on Black attacks is so small, it is statistically almost zero, when you consider the opposite is 40 times more likely.
When Holder delivered his 2009 “nation-of-cowards” speech blaming racism for racial separation, Manhattan Institute’s Heather Mac Donald suggested that our attorney general study his crime statistics.
In New York from January to June 2008, 83 percent of all gun assailants were black, according to witnesses and victims, though blacks were only 24 percent of the population. Blacks and Hispanics together accounted for 98 percent of all gun assailants. Forty-nine of every 50 muggings and murders in the Big Apple were the work of black or Hispanic criminals.
New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly confirms Mac Donald’s facts. Blacks and Hispanics commit 96 percent of all crimes in the city, he says, but only 85 percent of the stop-and-frisks are of blacks and Hispanics.
And these may involve the kind of pat-downs all of us have had at the airport.
Is stop-and-frisk the work of racist cops in New York, where the crime rate has been driven down to levels unseen in decades? ....
...What about interracial crime, white-on-black attacks and the reverse?
After researching the FBI numbers for “Suicide of a Superpower,” this writer concluded: “An analysis of ‘single offender victimization figures’ from the FBI for 2007 finds blacks committed 433,934 crimes against whites, eight times the 55,685 whites committed against blacks. Interracial rape is almost exclusively black on white — with 14,000 assaults on white women by African Americans in 2007. Not one case of a white sexual assault on a black female was found in the FBI study.”
Though blacks are outnumbered 5-to-1 in the population by whites, they commit eight times as many crimes against whites as the reverse. By those 2007 numbers, a black male was 40 times as likely to assault a white person as the reverse.
If interracial crime is the ugliest manifestation of racism, what does this tell us about where racism really resides — in America?
And if the FBI stats for 2007 represent an average year since the Tawana Brawley rape-hoax of 1987, over one-third of a million white women have been sexually assaulted by black males since 1987 — with no visible protest from the civil rights leadership.
Today, 73 percent of all black kids are born out of wedlock. Growing up, these kids drop out, use drugs, are unemployed, commit crimes and are incarcerated at many times the rate of Asians and whites — or Hispanics, who are taking the jobs that used to go to young black Americans.
Are white vigilantes or white cops really Black America’s problem?
Obama seems not to think so. The Rev. Sharpton notwithstanding, he is touting Ray Kelly as a possible chief of homeland security.
The vitriol and venom coming from Holder and the race hustlers is for one reason only,... they realize they made this case their biggest showcase in two decades and it flopped. In fact, it appears to prove the opposite and that is that White hate against blacks is probably the least biggest problem in their lives. Blaming their problems on George Bush would be a likely second choice, but the cat is out of the bag now. The age of Obama is possibly the worst thing to happen to Black race hustlers. Just as Watergate and the end of the Vietnam war forced many hippies to trade in their love beads for neck ties, Jesse and Al are looking increasingly out of place,... but unlike the hippies, this national farce of feigned Apartheid is not going away,... it just looks even stupider, if that is possible.
Remember, JFK said his Catholic faith would have no effect on his job and as Mitt Romney quoted him, He expected to act as President of all America.
Obama's claim that the American history of black mistreatment in the distant past, which by the way does not apply to a Kenyan professor or Holder's parents from Barbados, never goes away, means any claims that "a new dialogue" on race will make things better, or if whites stop being racial "cowards" that we will progress to a better America for all is not something he believes in. So next time you hear Obama or Jesse complaining about how we can't progress in America on Race, our President just told us there is nothing Whites can do to make things better for ALL Americans, but they can make things better for him and youths that look like they could be his son.
And that's what it all comes down to. Are the marches being organized this weekend about a universal theme of justice for all,... or is it a farcical tribal manipulation to keep a few "Reverends", Suburban "Gangsta" Rappers and "Community Organizers" at the top of the Political Bling Bling food chain while the people they claim to represent are dying in the streets of Chicago and Detroit.
What is the biggest threat to a young black man in the most prosperous nation on earth? That should be the question at today's rallies. Clue..look for the bullhorns.
