Skip to comments.Did the administration and the media shoot itself in the foot in the Trayvon Martin controversy?

Gateway Pundit carries an interview of Janet Murgula, President of La Raza, on Keeping it Real with Reverend Al Sharpton (guest host Andre Eggelletion). The gist of the conversation is Hispanics and blacks should join forces to address common problems. It is curious why such a conversation is taking place at the height of the Trayvon Martin issue.
It seems the controversy is now driving a wedge between Hispanics and blacks. Janet Murgula wouldn't have made her statement otherwise. The friction has long been there. Look at the street gangs of Los Angeles, look at the prison gangs. They are primarily Hispanics vs. blacks. Blacks blame Hispanics for their job losses and a host of other ills. Hispanics think blacks are being dealt better cards in the way of racial preferences.
When the Trayvon Martin case exploded, it was in the interest of the Obama campaign to make it a case of white vs. black. They wanted to gin up the base with the tried and true "the Klan is coming to git you" mentality. But it has turned into a renewal of long simmering Hispanic/black tensions -- this despite the sycophant medias best efforts to create anti-white animus by calling George Zimmerman a white Hispanic from a gated community and various other subterfuges.
Efforts by liberals, the media and black leaders for rush to judgment no doubt has Hispanics worried that this is but one more example of favoring blacks over them. Obama and the liberal media unintentionally walked into a trap....

Exactly. The media repeated white hispanic so many times, it became a double perjorative.
Yes the black guard and George are the same tone. I think it’s funny because the judge didn’t even recognize GZ standing right next to Mark OMara.
Many years ago a Cuban friend of mine patiently explained to me the “pecking order” of races in Miami:
Cubans, Colombians, Dominicans, Haitians, & at the bottom - black Americans. It was a bit amusing to me, as I often couldn't tell the difference. That really irritated him.
At the end of the day, not at all.
Obama shored up the base of blacks with those comments and actions. There was real fear of his black support level dropping to below 99.999%.
The American sheeple haven`t been given permission from the Minisrry of Propaganda to express outrage at Obama`s interjection.
Hey liberals! the dude is brown! His white genes got shoved aside by his Mayan/Aztecan ones.
If Pancho Villa had a son, he would look like Jorge Zimmerman.
I agree with the author, big backfire here.
I just found out his Mom was Peruvian, I guess that would make his genetic makeup possibly Incan?
WTF is a “white Hispanic”? a dreamed up race by the MSM.
WTF is a “white Negro”? A nightmare purportrated upon the United States by Marxists who want to destroy this country and they have been doing a pretty good job of it for the last three years.
F BHO with malice
I don’t see how Hispanics could unite behind Obama and the blacks after Obama stood there and told them, they don’t look like his son!
Sensei, snag the HTML from Post #30, if you like.
Yeah, commi liberal cowards always try to go hug hug, we make up and do not betray each other... yet... when we all know they have a long knife at each other’s back the minute they are stuck somewhere.
We should not support these people. Our continued support of such people is what is killing this country. But as the economy crashes, it is wake up time for commi liberals, time for them to “get real” and start killing each other before the end of this “hunger game” of theirs.
Keep your freaking ammo dry folkes, and start the pop corn.
