The Trayvon Martin Case: The circus continues!


I’m so very disappointed and saddened by the fallout I’m witnessing over the Trayvon Martin shooting.  I can’t believe the racial divide, especially since there is no evidence to date to prove that George Zimmerman is a racist. 

Why haven’t there been calls for civility from so-called Black Liberal leaders or any Liberals? Perhaps it’s because they are too darn busy adding fuel to the racial flames. Race baiters are in full force and are apparently willing to widen the racial divide in this country. After all, the division works in their favor.

Martin’s shooting is being touted as a case of racial profiling, but no racial motive has been proven.  Zimmerman was originally reported as being White and we now know that was reported falsely.  He is now being reported as a White-Hispanic.  Really?  Those in the media reporting fallaciously are more culpable of racial injustice than they have proven Zimmerman to be.  The media purposely reported this case with racial overtones.  Why aren’t they reporting that Zimmerman tutored Black children on weekends…..for free?  Why would a racist do that?

Why did Democrats call Congressional hearings to discuss racial profiling?  Again, there is no proof of racial profiling in this case, yet Congressman Bobby Rush exploited  the case by wearing a hoodie and spewing racial rhetoric on the House floor.  Shouldn’t the hearings be about Black on Black crime since that accounts for roughly 90% of Blacks murdered?

In addition to Bobby Rush’s theatrics, we’ve seen a mob of kids rushing into a Walgreens to steal and cause mayhem; kids showing up at school wearing hoodies and holding skittles; kids leave school to protest; church members going to church in hoodies; celebrities wearing hoodies, including the white guilt liberal types to show how non-racist they are. Is it a coincidence that all of these entities… schools, Hollywood, media, so-called Black leaders and liberal politicians are all involved in the brainwashing of Black folk? Ask Eric Holder about brainwashing!

A more serious incident was commanded by Spike Lee. He  re-tweeted what he thought was George Zimmerman’s address, but it turned out to be the address an elderly, seventy-something year old couple. This couple had to leave their home because of death threats. They had absolutely nothing to do with this case, but because of ignorant people like Spike Lee, their lives have been turned upside down and they now fear for their safety. And now, Roseanne Barr has re-tweeted the Zimmerman’s correct address. So sad!

I think the most egregious of all has to the New Black Panther Party openly instituting a bounty for the capture of George Zimmerman, while chanting “dead or alive”.  Still… no calls for people to be civil and calm. In fact, the usual suspects like Maxine Waters and  Sheila Jackson-Lee made incendiary comments, laced with racial overtones.  When Obama had the opportunity to douse flames, he instead makes the statement “if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon”.  Was that code for “I’m down with Blacks”?

A key question for me is how did Martin and Zimmerman come face-to-face?  It’s imperative that we let this case be investigated thoroughly for  justice sake. I am not pro Zimmerman or pro Martin. I am pro justice. However,  I’m very anti-liberalism. I’m witnessing the destruction of liberalism unfold over this case. Divide and conquer…. that’s what this case is about to Liberals; not justice for Trayvon Martin.

I wish we could lend such fervent efforts to solving the hardcore issues that plague Black America:  high school dropout rates; low college matriculation rate; sexual promiscuity amongst teens; drugs; gang violence and the epicenter of all problems; the 72% illegitimacy rate.

Perhaps too many of us have been so conditioned to see everything from the premise of racism, that no matter what, many Blacks will always see the world as if they are victims of a racist society?

Zimmerman isn’t the racist in Trayvon’s case.


We’ve all heard about the murder of seventeen year old Trayvon Martin by now.  He is the young man that was shot dead by a neighborhood watch guard.

The details of what happened are still too sketchy.  Just about the only thing that ISN’T sketchy is the racial overtones devouring this case.  You see, the surname of the shooter is Zimmerman and the victim is Black.  One thing the mainstream,  liberal media loves to do is to sensationalize White on minority crimes. 

What we are now finding out about Zimmerman is that he is Hispanic; not White, and is from a multi-racial family.  We are also finding out that the initial reports of him using racial slurs were incorrect. Although the racial overtones are glaring, and he has been labeled a racist, there is no evidence thus far to support the claim of racism.

Don’t get me wrong here; I’m not defending Zimmerman. Based on reports, he continued to follow Trayvon when he had been explicitly told not to. I feel but for that decision, Trayvon would not be dead today.  And also based on reports, I’m of the opinion that the local police investigated the case poorly. Subsequent to the local police ruling the case self-defense, it appears that  important details emerged that contradicts their determination.

I am prepared to allow the special prosecutor and FBI to cross all T’s and dot all I’s in this case. I want to see justice done just as much as anyone else. But because I’m a Conservative and refuse to be propelled by emotions like the vast majority of Blacks, I’ve been accused of being non-caring, not doing enough and standing with Whites (even though Zimmerman is Hispanic) and selling out the Black Community.

It is incredibly unfortunate when ANYONE is murdered. I’m saddened by the death of this young man, and I can not even begin to imagine what his parents must be feeling or their suffering.  In 2010, 2,720 parents felt that unimaginable grief. That’s how many Blacks were murdered.

I still do not understand where the national media attention was for the murders of all those men, women and children;  or Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton and the mob of angry, protesting Blacks! They mattered as much as Trayvon, right? 

Other than abortion (roughly 15 million Black babies murdered, yes murdered, since Roe v. Wade), loss of life doesn’t get more innocent than that of a child’s caught by the stray bullet of a gang banger or drug dealer as they play in their yards or sit in their home watching TV.

Of those 2,720 Blacks  murdered in 2010, 2,459 of them were murdered by Blacks.  The Black on Black  scenario is not exciting enough for the liberal media; nor is there a racial angle for the likes of Sharpton to exploit. In addition, the murderers of many of the victims go unpunished.  Unlike the angry mobs that mobilize when a non-Black person kills a Black person, those who know anything about inner city murders are suddenly rendered mute. Hey, who likes a SNITCH? Only snitch if the killer is NOT Black!  

Zimmerman may be a racist. It’s just that I have not seen evidence of it thus far. But, the media and the many Black folk ready to hang him without a trial sure seem to be preening some racial feathers.

Have you heard about the thirteen year old Kansas City White teen that was doused with gasoline and set on fire by several Black teens, as they yelled racial epithets?  Probably not many of you have.  It’s not sensational enough for liberal media.

Liberalism must continue racial divide to survive.  Trayvon is sadly being used as a mere tool by the liberal game players, and just as sad and equally disgusting,  his parent’s, and that giant, angry mob of Black folk are definitely being played.
