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?
