Interesting text I got today from a black teacher
My cell phone | 7/17/13 | Me, Myself, and I

Posted on 07/17/2013 5:23:19 PM PDT by EinNYC

I answered a beep indicating a text message had come in on my cell phone today. To my great surprise and disgust, a picture of the 12 y.o. Trayvon popped up, with the following text underneath (spelling is just the way it was on the cell phone text message):

"In the wake of the senseless killing of Trayvon Martin...'The company known as Koch', which manufactures paper products is sponsoring and paying for Zimmerman's legal fees because they feel he had legal right to bare arms and shoot Trayvon we are asking that people everywhere ban together and pass this information on and not purchase any of the following items because your money will be paying for Zimmerman's lawyers and legal fees. Please do not purchase any of the following items: Angel soft toilet paper, Brawny paper towels, Dixie plates, bowls, napkins and cups, Mardi gras napkins and paper towels, Quilted northern toilet paper, Soft and gentle toil paper, Sparkle napkins and paper towels, Vanity Fair napkins and paper towels. Please forward this Very Important information to All your Family and Friends. Please Let's Help Get "Justice for Trayvon Martin" Thank you!!!

I was beyond angry and utterly disgusted. The sender is a very nice black woman, fellow teacher, and I could not wrap my mind around her falling in with these Trayvon crappeople. I texted her back that Zimmerman didn't flee the country, he submitted himself to the justice system of this country and there was insufficient evidence for the jurors to him guilty of anything. And that we can't complain if a verdict is not what WE think it should be. She then called me to discuss my text reply to her message. She mentioned the 911 tape as proof. I told her straight up that the 911 call tape had been altered by the media to make Zimmerman look more guilty. No, she didn't know that. She didn't take into account the inflammatory picture of dear Trayvon as a 12 y.o. vs. the age he was at death. She didn't seem aware of the 3 suspensions at school, the burglary tools found in his locker at school, or any of the other evidence which may have been suppressed. Yet she feels confident enough to pass along this outrageous crap on my phone. However, the conversation remained amicable and she even rang off with an "I love you", as did I.

This is really scary, if nice people like this lady are so easily recruited to carry the water for the agitators.

Where in the world did she come up with the Koch angle. I never heard that one and almost sure it’s a lie.

You increased her level of information and that is a good thing. The real lesson here is how much influence the vile and despicable MSM has on ordinary people, who are not political junkies like us.

Kochs are blamed for everything.

We have a local incorporated group fighting Wind Farms around here that gets 100% of its funding from local citizens. Many of these people are hardcore Democrats.

yet, it is constantly being assaulted by the Windies and the leaseholders and accused of being funded by the Koch Brothers

There is no truth to the rumor that Koch is funding the defense of George Zimmerman. #tlot #tcot #trayvonmartin

It’s a fake. The boycott Koch letter has been circulating for a while. Somebody thought a Zimmermann tie-in would attract more attention, though there’s no truth in it. See Snopes.com for more (if you trust them).

I saw the Koch angle on Twitter. Probably progressives who actually believe the Koch brothers are underwriting the Tea Party and want to punish them. Even Snopes has debunked the Koch-Zimmerman “connection.”

Oh, I am right now embroiled in a FB debate with a fellow teacher who is usually a very fair-minded, mellow, balanced man, and he also knows little about the case, but is very willing to hold forth on “racial profiling” and how Trayvon’s rights were violated, and how he “senses” Zimmerman’s racism... it’s astounding. I mean, this is someone I had thought was more dispassionate and truth-seeking than this. I’m hoping I can get a few facts through his head too.

I did some research just now and found out that SNOPES called this rumor FALSE. I also saw that many many black organizations of every ilk around the web are promulgating this nonsense, which is interesting and rather scary. What, are they just checking their brains and baccalaureate/Masters degrees at the door as they suck this toilet water up without critical review of the facts?

She is ignorant. I can almost excuse the sheeple for falling in line with what the MS tells them. And for blacks.... They will happily stay on the plantation if the racers at the NAACP tell them to.

But when ANYONE spews forth the lies like this woman did - they go beyond ignorant and into the Twilight Zone of racist hatred.

Tell her off. I’m sure she’d appreciate hearing from a creepy ass cracker.

Right after the verdict, Tweeters were also posting that Trayvon had a 3.7 GPA and had a full ride college scholarship awaiting him. I am sure people believed that too.

I think your colleague's text is a classic example of leftist propaganda. For some reason they feel the need to attack the Koch brothers, since they are successful investors and businessmen. So they make the allegation that the Koch brothers are funding Zimmerman's defense, and then suggest a boycott of Georgia Pacific.

Much of the energy behind the current wave of protests against the jury verdict comes straight from the radical left. Look at some of the people and signs at the protests, they are from the usual far left groups.

What I think is that the left and their idol Obama have destroyed any hope of decent race relations in this country for generations to come.

I also believe that nice teacher would say and do nothing if you were being stomped to death by a group of black yuts in her presence. Nor would she testify against them if it got to court. What her text tells you is that she like many (most?) black people in this country are woefully ignorant and that race trumps truth.

My final comment is something I sincerely wish I didn’t believe to be the truth. If you live in an urban area, it would be prudent to assume that any black person would turn on you given the right circumstances (assuming you are white). IOW, you darn well ought to be on guard ALL the time when out in public. What an awful thing to have to say.

What's "scary" about this? People default to their prejudices all the time, and allow their critical thinking (presuming they are capable of critical thinking) to be circumvented.

Unfortunately, the forces of truth, seated in this case in the determination of a jury (and hardly an infallible institution in itself), lack a vested industry to speak its case and counter the propaganda of race pimps and other venal, self-described, progressive liberals.

If there were such an industrial strength, counter-posed voice equal to the task of advocating the simple facts of the case the truly fair-minded would not so readily subscribe to the trending fashionable hatred.

Yep...typical...'bare' arms indeed. The teachers' unions keep these half-literate folks in place 'teaching' the children. And in NYC, teachers that are degenerates are kept in 'rubber rooms' and paid for doing nothing while staying on the payroll.

Thanks to these unions it's another lost generation of kids. Disgusting...and NYC isn't even the worst of the lot.

I don’t blame you. Personally? After LMAO for an hour or so, I would have regained composure and then gone out and purchased a year’s supply of everything mentioned. And sent a cell phone pic of the shopping cart(s) to this gal.

First, I probably would have done a little web research to see if her premise was accurate. Which it probably wasn’t; accuracy in fact isn’t a high priority with this culture.

Which doesn't stop you from helping them out.

If you are assuming that my behavior and attitude towards black people that I see is anything less than polite, considerate & cordial, then you assume incorrectly.

I simply believe that race relations in this country have been poisoned for a long time to come. That doesn't alter how I treat people. Nor would it change who I would come to the aid of in a crisis, regardless of color.

What you believe doesn't say much about actual conditions in the real world.

I certainly hope you are correct and that I am being overly pessimistic. Because I believe race relations are poor, doesn't mean I want them to be.

Ask your friend if he knows Zimmerman took a black date to his senior prom and has mentored several black kids. I only heard that on FR but I don’t think the MSM would broadcast that even if they knew it to be true.

It is really one person at a time with these low info voters. She obviously likes you enough to have a conversation and you gave her information that she can’t ignore. If she just looks up the info and shares it with 2 more low info voters just think of how many people you have informed by that one contact. I am always excited when I have the opportunity to share truth. Thankful for FR where I get all my info. I actually live in the Sanford area and have many established relationships with the AA community. Have been sharing all year and I know that some people had the ears to hear.

I am sure you are very smart, (you're a Freeper) but you know you are the exception to the rule - most of the public school teachers I know are dumb as a bag of rocks - although most are very nice people, too.
