Church Leader: Like Trayvon Martin, Obama Probably Was 'Profiled' [Says "Bishop" Don Hilliard]

Church Leader: Like Trayvon Martin, Obama Probably Was 'Profiled'

By Ian Duncan March 23, 2012 Reporting from Washington — At a White House summit, Atty. Gen. Eric Holder assured African American church leaders that he was conducting a thorough investigation of the shooting of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida.

But one of the leaders present said concerns remained about the killing and the local and federal investigations.

“This is a horrifically challenging, despicable situation and felt much more so for the laissez-faire attitude of the powers that be in that community,” said Bishop Donald Hilliard, speaking by phone during a break in the meeting. “After a while one gets tired of the same old script being played out again and again.”

Hilliard is the leader the Covenant Ecumenical Fellowship and Cathedral Assemblies, a church organization based in New Jersey.

Referring to recent hate-crime guilty pleas of three men in connection with a murder in Mississippi, Hilliard portrayed Martin’s case as another in a string of racially motivated killings.

Hilliard said he was unsure if the federal investigation into the shooting of Martin would be successful.

“Let’s just say I’m hopeful that justice will prevail,” he said. “I pray to God that this time justice will prevail.”

Bishop Donald Hilliard

another dyed in the wool race baiting riot seeking effort.

and after listening to AG Holder....

What do we hear of all the non black church leaders meeting with the AG... zip... nada, nothing.... they do not try to make race a chance to fleece the flock for more bucks and a new SUV.

Sadly, if the population they want to riot does..... they are may win the short term, but, remember, they are way fewer in number than Hispanics Asians, and Caucasians, etc........

Winning a riot is one thing.. winning a war against an advantage of numbers.......... are they going to be able to live with that....

1) If Trayvon Martin were WHITE would this story even be happening?...

2) If NOT WHY would it not be happening?..

** These are the most important questions.. that need to be answered..

So? I’m white and I’ve been profiled by cops, while driving through predominantly black or hispanic neighborhoods. One time, they pulled a friend and myself over, with no probable cause, ordered us out of the vehicle, and proceeded to begin searching it without permission, asking “where are the drugs?” Works both ways.

Well, I guess the MSM really doesn’t care that Martin attacked Zimmerman. It’s self-defense they don’t like.

I went to High School with Don Hilliard (and his cousins). They knew how to game the system... playing the race card back in the early 1970’s

I would be willing to wager a little of what the favorite Boy name in the Hood will be. Yep Trayvon, mega star, rap songs, maybe even a pair of Nikes named after him.

Only the beginning. An unpopular black president is running for re-election. He needs the psychology of racial tension, and will do anything to get it.

This will be the most racial and corrupt election in US history.

The cynic in me notes that this is an opportunity for a little bit of blowback against the Democrats who are playing the race card. They are playing the race card against an Hispanic and the one thing Obama certainly cannot afford is to lose the Hispanic vote in the upcoming election.

There comes a time when playing the race card become so destructive of civil society that it must be deterred even if it can be accomplished only by Mutual Assured Destruction.

There is no hope that this will occur mainly because Republicans have been so cowed and shrink from these issues. Democrats for their part would not shrink from playing the race card if they were in our shoes and they would generate Astroturf reactions to the playing of the race card by the a political party on behalf of African-Americans against Hispanics. They would find Hispanic spokesmen to raise issues of black on Hispanic crime, to raise issues of racial preference for blacks over Hispanics, to raise issues of stereotypes against Hispanics being done right now by African-Americans, to demand justice for Zimmerman, the Hispanic-American.

Pity he does not have a typically Hispanic name.

The spokesman would gain television time somehow and confusion would begin to grow in the Hispanic community about whether their interests are in fact truly represented by the Democrat party.

They might conclude that Obama's son might not look like them

Perhaps Democrats might begin to shrink from playing the race card when they are confronted with a nuclear response.

Certain black "leaders" are letting their mouth outrun their brain.

It is going to reach the point that, no matter what a grand jury decides, all Hell breaks loose.

Sharpton got carried away with the Tawana Brawley debacle, made an absolute fool of himself, but that hasn't stopped Reverend Al and his cohorts.

They want violence, it is the only explanation, and they count on ignorance and drummed up hatred to produce it.

Nope. Most people probably haven't heard of the white kid who was doused with gasoline and set on fire. 13-year-old white boy set on fire allegedly by two blacks who said, "You get what you deserve, white boy."

.

What has Bishop Hilliard had to say about this?

.

While the Zimmerman/Martin ‘white’ on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by a gang of feral blacks in Oklahoma just last week?

The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten and his jaw broken. He was shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.

The 85 year old partially blind wife was RAPED and then BEATEN TO DEATH.
(She was most likely gang raped numerous times...but we will never know for sure)

Both the husband and wife were weak, having just gotten over the flu.

.

There’s a lot more involved here than a home invasion and robbery.

WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??

90 year old husband’s jaw broken and shot in face with a BB gun numerous times?

85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??

Where is the 24/7 MSM coverage?

Where is the outrage?

What about this case?

This was swept under the rug.
They refused to declare it a hate crime.
Most of the feral black gang got off lightly.

The Newsome/Christian horror:

On Saturday January 6, 2007 Hugh Christopher Newsom, age 23 and Channon Gail Christian, age 21, both students at the University of Tennessee went out on a date.

They were driving in Channon’s Toyota 4-Runner when they were carjacked at gunpoint. Suddenly the crime turned far more savage than an armed car theft. Chris and Channon were kidnapped and driven to 2316 Chipman Street where they were forced into the home at gunpoint. While Channon was forced to watch, her boyfriend was raped prison style and then his penis was cut off. He was later driven to nearby railroad tracks where he was shot and set afire. But Channon’s hell was just beginning.

She was beaten; gang raped repeatedly in many ways, had one of her breasts cut off and bleach poured down her throat to destroy DNA evidence-all while she was still alive. To add to Channon’s degradation the suspects took turns urinating on her. They too set her body afire, apparently inside the residence, but for some reason left her body there-in five separate trash bags.*

I agree—AND can add only my sentiment that these folk with their stick in the beehive are no different at all from the stupid shooter. They have no life unless they can stir up divisions and keep Americans separated and fighting among ourselves-sure sign of an evil empire.Someday the slaves will get weary of the Democratic Party Plantation and their Soviet Communist Boss.

“Someday the slaves will get weary of the Democratic Party Plantation and their Soviet Communist Boss.”

And: “Someday, my Prince will come”

And it will happen: “Somewhere over the Rainbow”.

Yes, the pun is intentional.

Just some wild and crazy kids havin’ a good time.

Nothing to see here.

[I sure wish I was a protected species]

I hadn’t ever heard about or read your case.

Now I have two horror stories I can’t get out of my head.

I stopped going shopping alone after dark at the local Walmart strip mall because the [former] McMansions right behind it were turned into Section 8 housing after the previous buyers lost their homes after the crash.

The place is crawling with roving bands of hyenas and the lack of proper lot lighting has made it a popular place for robberies and ‘van snatches’.

It’s really weird to worry that you might be robbed, raped or worse by somebody who has a great room with vaulted ceilings and crystal chandeliers.

I read the whole minute-by-minute testimony back when it happened.

I still can’t get it out of my head and sure don’t want to read it again.

Thanks for the link, though.
Others may not be aware.

Are those maggots still sucking air?

Feeling a tad bit distrusting of America are we? Did the
Colonists all rally around Sam Adams and the Sons of Liberty—or the Committee of Correspondence. OR did they prefer to remain in the supine until “the war is actually begun”?IMO
Patrick Henry was preaching to the choir-knowing full well his
words would be published and debated and those comfortable in “being bound hand and foot” would be at last moved off the beggars bed.The movie Sparticus was fiction but spoke of a real emote. Men enslaved will eventually weary of their chains Or THEY ARE NOT WORTH WORRYING ABOUT. But the Code requires me to never cease to attempt escape,nor cease helping others to escape.And the Code remains.

The sociopathic liberal in me wonders why we don’t go for the jugular on this issue and find a way to use it to further divide the two groups. And, in turn, help isolate the hispanics from the communist Democrat party. It’s a pretty decent set up. If we had some strategic thinkers...if we had some thinkers.
