Skip to comments.Black writer warns of probable aftermath if Zimmerman acquitted
Posted on 04/21/2012 5:19:28 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Statistics show a deep divide in opinions along racial lines regarding the killing of a black Florida teenager, Trayvon Martin, by George Zimmerman, who is of mixed ethnicity, white and Hispanic.
Zimmerman has claimed self-defense, invoking the Sunshine States Stand Your Ground law which has also come under intense scrutiny in the wake of the incident.
Reuters news service reported last week, 91% of blacks believe Martin was unjustly killed, while only 35% of whites concurred. Hispanics were in between at 59% according to polling numbers Reuters gathered by querying nearly 2,000 Americans.
The disparity of views over Martins death is even less ambiguous than another racially charged case, the O.J. Simpson murder trial.
Significantly nonexistent afterwards was rioting, looting and burning of businesses, or attacks on hapless victims. After all, a black man had received justice, so-called.
Not so when the jury in the trial of police officers involved in the beating of defiant motorist Rodney King in Los Angeles failed to elicit the verdicts minorities were clamoring for.
In the days following that trial, blacks and Hispanics took to the streets of the L.A. basin killing, burning, rampaging, and robbing, feeling they had been denied justice...

Most of us are.
Bunch of us spoiling for a fight.
The KKK was the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party. It looks like radical Democrat racists want to revive their early days and terrorize those who do not bow to their demands.
The liberal media are responsible for charging the race hate and injustice up. All the way up the feeding chain.
I would rather have the riots than a man be railroaded to prison and I lived through the L.A. riots.
On the night he was “executed” by this white Aryan racist Nazi gun-toting rightwinger named “Zimmerman”, poor little innocent Trayvon was carrying an original Stradivarius violin under one arm, and an orignal Gutenberg Bible under the other, as he was returning from a Scripture study class followed by a hot session of Mozart string quartet sonatas.
Would you mind sharing what you saw and heard there? Thanks.

Some leftist catholic priests were involved in some of the destruction. The democrat convention was a real free for all until Mayor Daly put out the order to stop them any way you wanted to...
My girlfriends brother was a cop in Chicago during those times and what the papers never told you was what the idiots were really doing (like now)..They would drive nails through tennis balls and throw at the cops, bags of feces and urine lobbing golf balls at the copes. etc etc etc....
According to the media, they were just poor victims of police brutality...Now they are all in the government, think of Obama's friends Ayres and Doren, /spelling wrong. I really didn't think the country would survive it was so violent in the cities and colleges, it spread like the plague across the country...
“The liberal media are responsible for charging the race hate and injustice up. All the way up the feeding chain.”
The liberal media use teleprompters, too. They read what they are told.
Mobs will go for the soft side of town. That is where the Lexus and Infnity Liberals reside.
Any attempt to storm the Pick-up neighborhood could cause major blood loss and serious breathing problems.
Apologies to Freepers that might own Lexus or Infinity! :^}
“On September 11, 2011, blacks from the West Coast and the East Coast joined together and signed one of the most comprehensive legal briefs ever prepared on racial discrimination, then filed their brief September 12th, at 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time in US District Court in Seattle (Case No. C11 - 1503). The plaintiffs, who refer to the defendants as “Father of Racism,” allege that as an organization, the Democratic Party has consistently refused to apologize for the role they played in slavery and Jim Crow laws and for other subsequent racist practices from 1792 to 2011.”
Thank God for the BRILLIANT, conservative blacks that love this country.
That is our major problem. The 60s 'Hippies' siezed control of the Democrat Party.
I hated those spoiled little rich-kid bastards in the 60s when I had to deal with them every day at school, and I hate them even more now when they have power in government.
All witnesses, including neighbors and police and EMTs and coroner's techs can be questioned in one day. The whole incident unfolded in just a few minutes. There is, essentially, no more information to gather besides what we already know - except, perhaps, the TM's autopsy report (which is likely to tell us nothing.)
IMO, the trial can be all over within a week. The prosecution asserted a bunch of stuff ("profiled", "continued to follow") that would be impossible to prove and quite possible to disprove. Basically, nothing matters among what GZ and TM did prior to the physical altercation. They could look at each other, run away from each other, hide and seek, exchange words... none of that is illegal, and the threshold for stalking is much higher than the prosecutor implies. Otherwise I'd be stalking hundreds of people whenever I go to a grocery store.
>>>>Anything short of a conviction will produce riots. Thats the point. (at least thats what Obama is working towards)
>>A conviction means a riot, too.
It will be the “what flat panel TV am I gittin’!?” riots combined with the “thrash whitey” riots either way.
People smell this. It is part of the reason firearms and ammo sales are through the roof, and why CCWs are approaching 1 in 20 citizens in FL and some other states.
If the riots many black “leaders” are angling for come to pass, there will be plenty of anti-rioting by the general citizenry. People are fed up with this nonsense.
Thanks a lot for that information, granny. That must have been something to witness. Nothing has been the same since then - good news that segregation was dismantled and bad news that the dems just rebuilt a system of hate doctrines and discrimination with a new tanner, Klan and a lighter shade of victim to debase and harm. :(
I’ll bet there are a lot of freepers that remember those times...Agree with you on the hippies of those days...they were just simple flower children to the media, peace brother and all that crap, unless you disagreed with them..the media really hasn’t changed since those days. Leftist to the core...
Bear spray works on bears because:
To summarize, bear spray against a group of rioters will likely result in a slow and painful death. The spray can be of use only to gain a very temporary advantage and then run away as fast as you can. If you are surrounded in the house, the attackers will simply burn the house down unless you make it into a very, very costly (for them) exercise.
I remember the celebrations when OJ got away with murder. This isn’t going to end well. I’m afraid more people will die.
These articles all imply that if Zimmerman’s trial were held before the election and he were acquitted, there would be riots, and that would somehow help Obama. I don’t ‘get’ how riots help Obama.
This Nation is greater than B.Hussein O. and he will not threaten ME or MY family....
Folks if ever there was a time to VOTE it will be NOV. 6, 2012...ANY ONE BY OBAMA...
“This isnt going to end well. Im afraid more people will die.”
The Left wants this to happen. They NEED this to happen. They are running out of propaganda and manipulative techniques. They need blood in the streets to drop their own personal War of the Worlds bots on everything and everyone.
Black helicopters are not just for NATO.
TIME TO GO TO BED!!!
ANY ONE BUT OBAMA
The police were no where to be found. The air was smoky and ash was falling down like a light drizzle. You could’nt get the smoke out of you nose. The public bus service shut down for several days and I had to walk the five miles from work to home. Lucky that I had a ride to work in the morning. A lot of people resorted to bicycles (several people way out of shape) riding on sidewalks because they were to afraid to ride in the streets. There was a early curfew enacted and neighbors sat on rooftops armed including my hubby. I felt a lot better when they sent in the National Guard. Of course the closes places for looting to my home was a Circuit City and the Max Factor museum to steal Madonna’ bra.
Think about this for a minute....
The SOB Muslim Major Nidal Hasan murdered 13 innocent people and had 32 attempted counts of murder in Nov. 2009. Where is the outcry? You can thank the media and Obama for these delays. Now the trial has been postphoned to October 2012. Wonder why?
But the media did and still does treat them like they were something special.
“Is there any chance I can put on a hoodie, yell Justice for Trayvon a couple times and get myself something nice too and they wont notice me?”
Easy! Just apply brown Shinola and make like Lootie.
To be really ‘integrated into the community’ may I suggest a lobotomy?
As true today as it ever was.
I would bet a dollar to a donut that if there was a Video of the shooting showing the events that took place were exactly as Zimmerman described, the percentages would barely change.
Yes, we’ll all owe a lot to Sharpton, Jackson, CNN, NBC, and the president for turning this from a local police matter into a nationwide racial volcano - it spewed a bit of lava yesterday when Zimmerman was given bail and Martin’s family and supporters stalked from the courtroom in angry silence - when it finally erupts there will be blood, thanks to those fine public-spirited race hustlers.....
The more they show Zimmermans face the more P*ssed Off the Mexican gang bangers are going to get. The Asian gangbangers aren’t going to be on the side of the blacks. The white home boys won’t put up with property destruction. So it will get bloody.
I am really tired of this black vs white people stuff...
This is ALL about POLITICS!!!
Conservatives vs socialist/communists...
“Give me liberty or give me death...” Although Patrick Henry said that, how many PEOPLE, black and/or white or whatever, have striven for that same ideology?
William Wallace, according to the movie Braveheart, shouted, “FREEDOM!”
Our government has just gotten “too big for its pants”!
“Black writer warns of probable aftermath if Zimmerman acquitted”
The only possible response from reasoned Euros must be:
“Bring it on....”
Anything less is submission to the veiled threat.
#12: Not the OJ trial. The results of the Obama election as president. “We ain’t gotta pay our bills. Obama is going to pay for our tuition and gas”.
Same f”ucking response. Same inane look on their faces. Same stupidity.
I feel very sad for the decent black people who are caught in the middle of this leftist/racist mentality (Jackson, Sharpton, Obama, Holder, etc), and the rest of America.
Armed, locked and loaded. Got caught in 1968 without any weapons. Two white truck drivers got pulled from their trucks and killed on 14th Street in DC a day or two after I was at that exact spot the night Dr. King was killed.
Ain’t gonna happen again.
Actually, he wants Zimmerman to take one for the OTHER Team.
Mass. was busing Black kids in from the city to the suburbs voluntarily at the end of the eighties when we lived there. White kids, however, were not being forced to travel to “diverse” areas. The black children whose parents wanted to educate their kids outside the city, traveled long hours to reach the suburban schools. They also had special tutoring so they would not fail in school and get into college. It cost alot of money.
They also had magnet schools which tried to lure in white kids to black schools - it was like a special, mostly segregated school within a school. Political lefties did this with their kids. I thought it was like decorating a place with skin as the kids were not integrated culturally at all. They had no common culture or common ground unless the white kids wanted to play political and social punching bag for the black adults in the school. The kids were kept separate in values, hearts and minds and classes.
I am glad segregation era physical and legal structures were broken down although liberals were too mean to figure out ways to do it right and would not allow integration into an American-American melting pot which they named “white.” The biggest jump was section 8 housing vouchers and the destruction of liberalism's terrible ghetto reservations (concentrated housing) in the cities.
When my son was in middle school and they had just gone heavy in “multiculturalism” which is racist tribal doctrines they standardized and spread nationally, he came home and told me that I am the only person who does not believe that skin defines people. That is why I started studying what the elitists were up to. :(
“I am really tired of this black vs white people stuff...”
So are we all, but reality simply is. Culture is determinative. The “Urban Black culture” is steeped in racism and the “Gimme Pig” mentality.
“Our government has just gotten too big for its pants!”
In November, we will.
“The courts should not be held hostage by the baying mob.”
But they already are. Zimmerman was charged and arrested to placate the racial mobs. Corey had no new information, she was simply instructed by our spineless Governor, “Zimmerman must be charged and put behind bars.” I’m sure he would eagerly convict him to placate the racist mobs too but that’s liable to be tougher since the evidence against Zimmerman is so thin.
You think the author is sending a message to Zimmerman that being a mentor to the black kid in the inner city for three years is not enough. Now Zimmerman must give up ten years of his life for black racism?
Zimmerman would be mentally ill to give into or take for real all these Black race hate screeches and threats. He needs to get this trial over and move to Texas where half the population looks like him. He just needs change his name to Mexican, grow some face hair and he’s good to go. If someone asks him if he’s Zimmerman, he can pull the race card and tell them they think all Mexicans look alike. :)
>> ...invoking the Sunshine States Stand Your Ground” law
Really? I must have missed that. When did that allegedly happen, ‘cause I think it is a simple self-defense case.
The GOP E used to use conservatives despicably forever.
I'm Off the Plantation!
That’s the plan.
They took a case that was a good shoot and rewrote the narrative.
They have whipped the perpetually offended into a fever over a case where they can’t get a conviction.
Why send white people out to fight? Send the Negroes.
Or his all white brother Mitt!
