Not Guilty Verdict A Travesty of Justice; Call For The Nation To Grapple With Racial Injustice
The Advancement Project | July 13, 2013 | Judith Browne Dianis, Co-Director, Advancement Project

Posted on 07/13/2013 9:09:28 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Washington, D.C. – It is distressing that George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the tragic killing of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager who was gunned down last year by a man who saw him as a threat, not because he posed a threat, but because of the color of his skin. We join the NAACP and others in calling on the Department of Justice to act on the violation of Trayvon Martin’s civil rights. There is no more fundamental right than the right to live.

Trayvon Martin is America’s son. He represents the precariousness of life as a young Black man in America today. Black men are routinely racially profiled whether by a neighborhood watchman, store security or police. New York City is a case in point on racial profiling by police of both Black and Latino men. In 2012, The New York Police Department’s stop-and-frisk policy led to almost 533,000 stops , in which a staggering 87% of those stopped were Black or Latino; 88% of those stopped were innocent. All across the country, young black men continue to be the victims of police killings by officers who are then rarely held accountable for their actions:

In March of this year, 16 year old unarmed Kimani Gray was shot seven times, including three times in his back by New York City police as he left his friend’s birthday party. An unarmed 19 year old college student Kendrec McDade was shot and killed by officers in March 2012 in Pasadena, California. In Las Vegas, 28 year old Orlando Barlow was surrendering on his knees when officers fatally shot him in 2003. And four years ago, 22 year old Oscar Grant was killed by Oakland transit police, who said they accidentally used a gun instead of a taser. All of these young men were unarmed and in almost all of the cases the officers were exonerated and returned to the beat. In the case of Grant, despite video showing the young man being shot as he was handcuffed and laying face down on the platform, the officer was convicted of manslaughter and served less than one year. Sadly, the saga of police killings and beatings of unarmed black youth is as story that forms a part of the fabric of the everyday life of most American black men.

Young men of color are also victimized by schools’ zero-tolerance policies that result in the arrest, suspension , and expulsion of students for minor infractions. Black and Latino students represent more than 70% of those involved in school-related arrests or referrals to law enforcement mostly for violating minor school rules like the dress code, carrying a cell phone, or talking back to a teacher.

The statistics paint a portrait of racial inequity. African Americans make up two-fifths and Hispanics one-fifth of all confined youth today. Black men represent 7.9% of 18- 24 year olds in America, but only 2.8% of undergraduates at public flagship universities. The jobless rate among poor black teens without a high school diploma is an alarming 95%, according to Northeastern University.

The disparities, unfortunately, do not end there. According to Human Rights Watch, people of color are no more likely to use or sell illegal drugs than whites, but they have higher rate of arrests. African Americans comprise 14% of regular drug users but are 37% of those arrested for drug offenses. From 1980 to 2007, about one in three of the 25.4 million adults arrested for drugs was African American.

Upon conviction, black offenders often receive longer sentences compared to white offenders. The U.S. Sentencing Commission stated that in the federal system black offenders receive sentences that are 10% longer than white offenders for the same crimes. The Sentencing Project reports that African Americans are 21% more likely to receive mandatory-minimum sentences than white defendants and are 20% more like to be sentenced to prison.

The killing of Trayvon Martin is a clarion call for our nation to finally grapple with the issue of racial injustice, especially with regard to young black men. The response of millions to the injustice of failing to arrest and try Trayvon’s killer is a testament to the power and effectiveness of grassroots movements. The movement must not stop with this verdict but continue on not only until each and every young man of color in America can walk the streets in any of our nation’s neighborhoods unafraid, knowing not only that he is safe, but also that as a nation we no longer tolerate the unfairness facing them but will ensure opportunities to thrive.

She is an ignorant fool. I watched the trial the state case lacked evidence of guilt, the lead police investigator said there was ZERO evidence of racial ill will by Zimmerman, and he found no major inconsistencies in Zimmerman’s story.

But we are supposed to convict Zimmerman and American society because TM had dark skin.

Well guess what Zimmerman is a dark skinned minority. She has the nerve to quote some statistics about Hispanics being discriminated against.

...who was gunned down last year by a man who saw him as a threat, not because he posed a threat...

Wrong. Martin most definitely was a threat. Or would the author like for me to knock him down, break his nose, pound his head into the concrete and tell him he is going to die tonight? Are you ready to rely on my good intentions under those circumstances? You ready to bet your life I wouldn't make good on my threats and actually kill you, either by intent or accident? Of course not. So stop being so disingenuous and trying to paint Martin as a non-threat. Martin {expeltive}'d up, pushed things way, way too far and got exactly what he deserved.

...but because of the color of his skin...

So you say - in spite of there being absolutely no evidence to support this claim. None. So, I guess those mind-reading classes from the back of Mad Magazine were a success? {snort} What am I thinking right now?

She regurgitated all kinds of statistics about blacks being arrested disproportionately, which had nothing to do with this case. Then she stuck “Trayvon Martin” in there a few times.

She’s probably never had an original thought in her life.

What about George Zimmerman's right to live? What about HIS civil rights? Was Trayvon FORCED to attack George and give him a beat-down? These people are nothing more than race baiters and hustlers who would be out of a job if what they claim to really want really does happen!

ANd, how many blacks were shot (by other blacks) in Chicago last weekend....?????? The Race industry is REALLY pissed about this. I predict that white women will be removed from the Affirmative Action Rolls because of this trial...all those white women on the jury were racists, right? Why should they be given special privileges?

yea, yea, yea. Yadda, yadda, yadda ! George Zimmermann was found not guilty because there was not sufficient evidence to convict him. The prosecution never proved intent, racial or any otherwise. He was found not guilty because the prosecution could not prove it’s case. It was only race baiters, e.g. Sharpton, that have made this simple case of self defense a political “show trial”. The fact that this case even went to trial was a tragedy. Fortunately, this travesty of justice did not become a tragedy. As was stated by the defense attorneys following the trial, this would have never even have been considered as a case warranting trial if Trayvon Martin had been white. Sharpton, Jackson and the media (Democrats) turned this into a political show trial.
Shame on you for suggesting otherwise.

it is not distressing, it;s a travesty he was charged in the first place.

it is not distressing when the person - the victim - is getting the living hell beaten out of him by ANY thug punk of ANY color, and the victim fights back and stops the thug punk from murdering him.

what is distressing is that black people cannot look at events without always siding with the black person, when the black person is the one in the wrong.

tell me when it became morally acceptable and legal for black men and adolescents to, if they feel dissed by someone, as his comments indicate, to ambush and attack another person, just for that. To sucker punch and get the first punch in, to use their fight training to overwhelm someone that did not show them what they believe is the proper respect?

this is not american culture. this is black gangsta culture. american culture respects the laws of the country. black gangsta culture does not.

it is distressing that blacks overlook black criminals and non-black victims, and instead stick with the black criminals because they are blacks.

it is distressing that blacks only get upset and get in front of the cameras when a black - even criminal blacks - are shot during commissions of their crimes - but are totally silent about the massive epidemic of black on black crime in which 93% of all black murders arise from. They only want to talk about the problem when they can blame others who aren’t black, because they then can throw the race card out and see if that angle works for them or not.

THAT is what is distressing about all this.

I would say that it’s pretty distressing that there are people who feel a black man should be able to jump and beat up a Hispanic man without any consequence. It seems like the anti-Hispanic racism is strong with them.

Racism is demonstrated whenever someone judges a situation not on the actual facts, but on the groups the people in the situation belong to.

Could it be that black men, on the whole, commit more crime and do worse in school? Why do we have to accept "racism" as the answer for group outcome differences when the facts point to other answers.

just because blacks are arrested at higher rates, that does not prove they did not do the crimes for which they were arrested.

I didn’t see her show any proof of this. If there’s nothing there how do all the charges stick? Reality may be that black men commit more crimes than other racial categories. To expect all racial categories to somehow have to do the same percentages of crimes is actually ridiculous. Or that because one group does more crimes and is arrested for them, that’s somehow wrong. If they are caught doing the crimes one way or another, that’s not bias, that’s because they did the crimes.

Let’s go even with the assumption they are beign targeted unfairly and too many black criminals are being caught. MAybe the conclusion again may not be bias, but maybe the conclusion should be is that black criminals on the whole are more stupid than other racial groups and because of their own stupidity, get caught at a higher rate than other groups.

But if it’s one thing I think we can all see is that liberal blacks do not want to deal with reality, they want to pass off their problems on other people, because if they can’t, that will mean their problems are SELF INFLICTED and that THEY HAVE TO OWN THEIR OWN MESS.

ANd they can’t handle that. They have to keep on denying reality, that broken black families are pumping out the Jenteals and the Trayvons, the baby making uneducated black women having kids out of wedlock, and the feral youth full of sizzurp, gangsta rap, hatred, and anger at the world. But it’s all because of THEIR OWN CHOICES. They choose to give up on their own education. They choose to waste their time on stuff that will not help them get ahead, get good jobs, be productive, have a stable life, that’s enjoyable, and raise kids in a marriage that’s solid. THEIR OWN CHOICES.

Instead they accomplish little to nothing. Public school lets them pass when they can’t read or write or do basic math because they graduate and then they aren’t the school’s problem anymore. they are told how great they are and think they ought to make lots of money and have a big job, whenthey have no skills to do a basic job. They believe “that’s racist” that they are denied the job or the promotion they think they should get. Anything they want but are denied automatically goes into the “racist” pile.

Martin Luther King would bitterly weep at what’s become of the black culture, and be so upset at how his own people are ducking their own personal responsibility and just chalking anything that doesn’t go their way, personally, culturally, whatever, as racist - so they don’t have to ever ask themselves an honest question of “could it really be my own fault?”

The fact they go crazy over a guy defending himself against a black gangsta thug who was going to teach someone a lesson for following him around, and never do the same against their own who are killing other blacks 93% of the time, is proof of this racist denial mentality that predominates the current black culture in America.

Furthermore, when an INNOCENT black child gets murdered by the police the leftists are totally silent on the issue.

The only time they ever complain about a "victim" is when he or she might share some of their own evil qualities. Evil people make up their own species together.

As was stated by the defense attorneys following the trial, this would have never even have been considered as a case warranting trial if Trayvon Martin had been white.

And IF Trayvon was white and George was black - given the same exact circumstances - then I'd say George would STILL be not guilty. Race has NO bearing on this case.

She doesn't care if they are commiting crimes. Leftists, particularly racist black leftists, believe that Black people have "earned the right" to murder any non-black they can find. But if the victim tries to protect his or her own self from the righteously due acts of vengeance, then it is a racial injustice! How dare they not agree to a fair kill score!
