Beneath the Spin: Trayvon Martin is Dead Because He Was Born Black in America Period
The Wattree Chronicles ^ | July 12, 2013 | Eric L. Wattree

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 Zimmerman’s trial for the murder of Trayvon Martin clearly validates the Black community’s point of view.

Trayvon Martin is dead for no other reason than he was born Black in America. That’s 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 Zimmerman’s fate, there’s a raging debate going on in America over whether or not Zimmerman was justified in taking this mere child’s 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 wasn’t casing the neighborhood in preparation to commit a crime, he wasn’t 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 don’t 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 don’t 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 don’t even recognize it themselves.

You don’t think so? Watch any hip hop video and count the number beautiful dark-skinned sisters you find. I guarantee you, you’ll find very few - and even when a dark-skinned sister is so strikingly beautiful that they can’t avoid using her, they’ll 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.

If an obviously somewhat educated person like this feels this way, imagine the attitudes of the millions of illiterate people out there. Think there won't be riots or worse? You're dreaming, I'm afraid.

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.

Trayvon Martin is dead because race baiters like the author write crap like this.

Trayvon Martin is dead because 30 years ago a race baiter named Al Sharpton tried to pull off a hoax and instead of going to jail for 20 years he got elevated toBlack folk hero.

But most of all, Trayvon Martin is dead because 8 prior robberies by blacks in this development caused a security guard to ask the question, what are you doing here. And instead of being the respectful child answering, going to my dads house, decided to launch a physical attack on a symbol of authority. And in the process to himself killed.

Trayvon Martin is dead because he tried to blend a man’s head with the pavement, and that man shot him. Moral of the story: don’t pound people into the sidewalk, and they won’t kill you.

He’s dead because he tried to murder someone by smashing that person’s head into the cement. He’s dead because he had a thug mentality. He’s dead because he made bad decisions. He’s dead because his degenerate parents didn’t raise him well. He’s dead because he was a loser punk. Oh, yes...coincidentally he was a person with “black” skin color.

Dear Author,

Young black men kill far more non-black people every year in America than non-black people killing young black men. The numbers aren’t even close, quite frankly.

I’ve grown so disgusted with the completely one-sided, lie-filled racial discussion in this country. The only way it’ll end is if we openly and forcefully end it with the unbridled truth about criminal statistics. No hemming and hawing and feeling guilty if those truths offend.

Travon Martin is dead because in his thuggishness and stupidity he chose to pound a guy who had a gun. Did I mention because of the lack of light he had no way of knowing Zimmerman was armed. Geo. Zimmerman did exactly as I would have done. I don't carry just to let some thug pound on me. You get one swing...whether you connect or not I shoot you. I generally aspire to the theory that if you shoot someone make sure there is only one story told!!!

The actual killing field is by far and away ... the black uterus.

As bad as it is statistically for young black males who actually make it into the world, the odds get much better once they escape that death trap.

Trayvon Martin is dead for no other reason than he was born Black in America. That’s a non-debatable fact.

It's not a fact. It is debatable. In fact, it is a convenient fiction. Trayvon is dead because he was a two-bit punk who messed with the wrong cracker. There are going to be a lot more Trayvon's when white people wake up to the fact that they've been held hostage to political correctness for decades, while predators like Trayvon and his homies have raped, robbed, and murdered them.

We've had enough, get it? To hell with Trayvon and all the rest of his tin-horn bad bro's. You want bad? Piss off the white middle class and see how long you last.

Race whore ...

Had he been a White kid, Trayvon would have still been alive today.

Sure he would have, idiot. More racist bull flop from some char-broiled hater. Piss off.

Yet, even as the jury is out deliberating Zimmerman’s fate, there’s a raging debate going on in America over whether or not Zimmerman was justified in taking this mere child’s life.

"Mere child." Yeah, you bet. Wannabe thug, second-rate criminal, jail fodder reprobate. Animated trash looking for a handout and another whitey to victimize.

Want some? Come get it!

Trayvon Martin is dead because he was born black in America and was allowed to behave like an animal, because he was black. If he had been forced to act like a civilized human being he would still be alive.

Proof of this argument are the preparations for rioting and looting being made for when Zimmerman is found innocent. If Martin were white, the cops wouldn't have to make any preparations.

Trayvon Martin is dead for no other reason than he was born Black in America. That’s a non-debatable fact.

I can accept the gentleman's premise. Because being born 'Black in America' greatly increases your chance of being infected with the 'chip on your shoulder' disease, and having a quick trigger to lash out at any perceived slight. It ingrains a lawless behaviour into the young folk's minds, and a belief that the world (particularly the non-Black in America world) owes you something.

So sure, had he been a 'white' or hispanic fellow or a Black who had been born and raised in Africa - there would have been a much lower chance of him having assaulted someone because he didn't like his remarks (or the way he looked at him).

This is a terrible cultural disease, and it takes an outstanding character to rise above it. And when they do rise above it they are forever branded as 'Uncle Toms' by the 'Black in America' crowd.
But, unfortunately these outstanding characters are far and few between. Most people having been raised in this environment have had their minds poisoned - and everything they see is through the prism of racial grievances and perceived past (and unforgiven) sins. There is a cure, and He is called Christ ('Be ye kind, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God, for Christ's sake, has forgiven you'), but unfortunately many of the pastors to this community are false shepherds and are afflicted with the same disease - and they just pour gas on the flames.
