Posted on 07/12/2013 3:53:18 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
White conservatives often criticize Black people for being too quick to play what they call "the race card." On the other hand, many Black people criticize America for not being sensitive enough to the reality that race plays in American life. George Zimmermans trial for the murder of Trayvon Martin clearly validates the Black communitys point of view.
Trayvon Martin is dead for no other reason than he was born Black in America. Thats a non-debatable fact. Had he been a White kid, Trayvon would have still been alive today. Yet, even as the jury is out deliberating Zimmermans fate, theres a raging debate going on in America over whether or not Zimmerman was justified in taking this mere childs life.
Regardless to the eventual verdict in this case, the trial itself clearly demonstrates how the laws of the land are routinely bent against the interest of the Black community, while still managing to maintain the illusion of justice for all.
The bottom line is, Trayvon Martin was guilty of absolutely nothing. He was simply engaged in an activity that millions of kids - good kids - engage in all across this country on a daily basis. He wasnt casing the neighborhood in preparation to commit a crime, he wasnt walking down the street smoking dope, nor was he walking the street in search of a potential victim. He was simply an innocent kid on his way home after going to the store to buy a bag of Skiddles and a soft drink. So how, in a just society, can he end up dead, and his killer - an armed adult, who stalked him, and outweighed him by forty pounds - can now be claiming self-defense in his murder? The very scenario strains credulity to the limit.
One would think the facts above would be crystal clear to every single person in America - and they would be if the situation was exactly reversed. If Trayvon Martin had been the adult in this scenario, and he stalked and killed a White kid under the exact same circumstances - if he stalked the kid, weighed forty pounds more than his victim, and he was armed while the kid was not - chances are, he would already be on Death Row, for First Degree Murder - that is, assuming he survived to reach the police station.
So while I dont take the position that all White people are malevolent, nor am I one who looks under every rock for the existence of racism whenever Black people dont get their way, I do stand firm in the belief that racism is such an historically pervasive part of American life that many Americans - both Black and White - harbor grossly racist attitudes towards Black people that are so deeply ingrained that they dont even recognize it themselves.
You dont think so? Watch any hip hop video and count the number beautiful dark-skinned sisters you find. I guarantee you, youll find very few - and even when a dark-skinned sister is so strikingly beautiful that they cant avoid using her, theyll usually shine a light on her to make her look orange.
So I reiterate, Trayvon Martin is dead due to the gross racism of a grossly racist society - Period.
He’s dead because he tried to kill someone.
Trayvon Martin is dead because he picked the wrong damn victim.
he is one thousand percent correct black society is grossly racist and that shi**y thinking got that foolio kilt
I was driving around today. Looks like whomever is killing all the black youth have missed quite a few.
Guess it was bound to happen no matter what...
Thnx for clearing that up.
Unless he assaulted Zimmerman.
Pick the wrong victim and its game over.
Is Hispanic white at the option of the writer?
People who think like this will never lead satisfied lives.
And a flood of race-obsessed malcontents hit us with their worthless “insights”.
He thought he was going to mug an unarmed guy. Only mistake made that night.
Pray for America to Wake Up
Isn’t Obama president because he is black and born in America?
You're traveling through another dimension ...
By this author’s logic, how did he reach a ripe, old age to write his article? It’s shocking that someone hasn’t come along and killed him simply because he’s black.
The sad part is that the black community (because it is the most tribal and least accountable ) refuses to see that if your teenage black males continue to commit crime at a rate that dwarfs the rate of all other people, of course people will associate young black males with crime. That’s logical and natural, and no amount of whining from white Liberals, intimidation from the black community will change people from reaching logical conclusions in their mind. If the black community wants people to stop thinking that young black males are the most prone to crime, than young black males have to stop proving that they are, in fact, more prone to crime.
All travon had to do was talk to Zimmerman when he first encountered him....not run from him. Explain his presence there.
Instead Rachel Jenatel told him to RUN, which like a dumbass, he did.
Trayvon is dead because he was stupid.
Did Mr. Obama or the “global elite” cancel all the flights and steamships going to Africa? If not, what is stopping all these malcontents from returning to their “beloved homeland” from whence their ancestors were forcibly removed so long ago? Buehler? Buehler?
My wife was in St. Maarten recently. Upon her return, she commented how nice it was to be around black people who were not victims, did not have a chip on their shoulders, were not expecting something for nothing, but were just People. Just people like everyone else.
