Integration pioneer at Sanford rally laments, 'shame we have to do this again'
The Daytona Beach News-Journal ^ | April 1, 2012 | DINAH VOYLES PULVER

Posted on 03/31/2012 9:31:06 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

SANFORD -- Rosetta Williams, one of six girls who were the first to integrate Seminole High School in 1965, thought the world had come further.

Yet 47 years later, Williams left her Deltona home on Saturday morning to rally for justice, not only for Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old shot and killed in Sanford, but for her own grandchildren and others.

"We did this when we were young," Williams said. "It's a shame we have to do this again in 2012."

Williams was one of more than 140 Volusia and Flagler area residents who participated in a march and rally in Sanford, which drew an estimated 1,200 people. Among the group were 54 Bethune-Cookman University students and 75 Flagler County residents. The march was organized by the Florida chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

State and national NAACP leaders, accompanied by Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, led the march to the Sanford Police Department from a local school that served black students during the segregation era. The march ended with a nearly two-hour rally.

"We live in the middle of an American paradox," Sharpton told the crowd. "We can put a black man in the White House but we cannot walk a black child through a gated neighborhood. We are not selling out, bowing out or backing down until there is justice for Trayvon."

What am I missing here? Is this not a simple case of a trespassing pants on the ground hooded gang banger beating up the neighborhood watch guy who is hispanic/jewish, and gangbanger gets himself shot for attacking a neighborhood guard?

What is the outrage all about? That we have a view from Whtie house that the dead gang banger could be his son?? too?

Question: Where do those hoodies and pants on the ground and tshirts down to the knees come from? I shop all the time and never see that stuff in my stores. Maybe I am shopping in the wrong neighborhoods.

“to rally for justice”

“Justice” without quotes Nice editorializing for a supposed factual article.

“Justice” was done by George Zimmerman

Sorry Rosetta. If your “boy” had wore his hoodie and carried his “Skillets candy” into the “gated community” located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, they would have dusted his @$$ there too if he had broken bad on them.

And what will Al and the boys do if there is no justice?

In their minds, the only proper justice would be if Zimmerman goes to prison for murder.

But, it’s possible that won’t happen. Justice could still be done even if Zimmerman doesn’t go to prison.

A grand jury will look into this case. A special prosecutor appointed by the governor of Florida is also looking into it.

The way Al Sharpton and his people are, if the grand jury doesn’t return a murder indictment, or the special prosecutor doesn’t find enough evidence to prosecute, or a trial happens, but Zimmerman is found not guilty, the race baiters such as Sharpton will say that justice was NOT done.

They have set this up so that anything sort of murder one will be cause for them to take to the streets, proclaiming that justice was not done.

If they do their complete investigation, review all evidence, etc. and decide that it was truly self-defense, then justice WILL have been done. But Sharpton and the boys won’t see it that way.

I’m not convinced they will be satisfied even with a murder conviction. They will claim that “the man” oppressed all sorts of other “children” and keep rioting anyway. We’ve got another Los Angeles 1992 on our hands, but this time the White House and the DOJ will fully support the criminals.

This is by design, make no mistake. The “leaders” fully intend a scenario in which Zimmerman is killed or taken into unlawful custody.

So we are comparing the tensions and uncertainties of integrating the schools in the South in the ‘60s, with a shooting that was self-defense, just because the victim was black???? Are these people for real?????

Hey Rosetta, give a shout out for the crappy education black children get at public schools run by Democrats. And let’s have a high five for the schools in Detroit! But leave the crime investigations to the professionals.

Stirring “white guilt” is going to backfire.

This is too obviously manipulative and reminding not only whites, but Asians and Hispanics that radicalism is a power keg of hate. People who have to live in the cities know about black racism and violence. They are not impressed by it and putting it all on display by threatening everyone is not a good thing for the Left.

“Maybe they wouldn’t have had to ‘do this all again’ if they had made something more of their culture.”

Trayvon was suspended from school for 10 days. His mother sent him to stay with his father and his father’s live in fiancé. Why was Trayvon sent by the mother to stay with the father during the suspension period? Did she believe Trayvon needed the strong hand of the father or was the mother just tired of dealing with Trayvon’s issues?

Trayvon was killed his last night in Sanford. He was supposed to be going back to Miami the next day. His father left Trayvon at the house alone to watch the NBA All Star Game while the father and the father’s fiance went out to dinner. Why didn’t the father want to have dinner with his son the last night his son was in town? Why did the father choose to leave a troubled teen serving a lengthy suspension from school alone and unsupervised for hours? Why would the teen be watching NBA basketball instead of studying? Why would the teen be going out in the dinner hour to buy candy? Was there no food at home for Trayvon?

Trayvon spent hours on his cell phone with his girlfriend the day of his death according to published reports. Why didn’t Trayvon’s father take away his phone and television privileges as punishment for his school suspension?

The father arrived home and Trayvon was not at home. Instead of looking for Trayvon or calling the police to report him missing, he went to bed. He did not call the police to report Trayvon missing until the next morning, 11 hours after the shooting. Why?

Trayvon had been suspended from school three times in the past year. When interviewed by reporters the father knew little about the suspensions or reasons for them. Why? What action did the parents take when Trayvon was suspended earlier in the year?

The father’s fiancé is not being shown on camera and little is being said about her in the press. Why?

Between them, how many children have Trayvon’s mother and father produced? By how many different partners? How are these children being raised? Were Trayvon’s father and mother ever married? How often did Trayvon’s father see Trayvon and how involved is he in his other children’s lives? Did he pay child support? Does he work? Is the family on welfare? Do the children and parents go to church? What is the home environment for these children?

Were Trayvon’s parents really providing him with guidance, love and discipline or was he just another child of a broken home looking to the athletes and the street culture for role models. Do Trayvon’s parents accept any accountability for the fact their son was running around unsupervised at night during his suspension from school? Have they considered that he would not have been in a life threatening situation if they had been parenting him instead of indulging in their own desires?

Spot on. The new standard that's being set up is: whites do not have the right to self-defense against black attackers.

If that gets played out, a lot of people in this country will decide they no longer have anything to lose, and just shoot, shovel, and shut up. It will be civil war at that point.

“Why do blacks keep joining Islam?”

Malcolm X actually mellowed on his racial rants, and turned his focus to blacks harming blacks, after going to Mecca and realizing that many Muslims were white - not “Arabs”, but “white” (Turks, Bosnians, Albanians, etc.).

His new focus cost him his life.

Rosetta is too stupid to see the difference between her and Martin. Rosetta took part in a movement to allow black children to attend schools that excluded them. A lot of "white" people assisted in that movement.

So tell me Rosetta, just exactly what do you mean by saying we "have to do this again"? Martin was suspended from school. He had been caught on camera writing graffiti on the walls. He had a flat head screwdriver on him. He had an empty baggie of marijuana on him. Is this what you fought for?

If Rosetta were to listen to Bill Cosby she would hear that his heart breaks about what is happening in the black community. And he isn't blaming white people.

It’s all part of “the big lie” strategy!!!!
PLEASE, YAHOO “The Big Lie” and how it is used by the left.

Example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Lie
snippets .... “Usage in Hitler’s psychological profile

His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.”

ANOTHER: “So this is how the Big Lie works. You begin with a hypothesis that has a certain surface plausibility. You find an ally whose background suggests that he’s an “expert”; out of thin air, he devises “data.” You write articles in sympathetic publications, repeating the data endlessly; in time, some of these publications make your cause their own. Like-minded congressmen pick up your mantra and invite you to testify at hearings.”A MUST READ.... COMPLETE ARTICLE @ http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/24/opinion/nocera-the-big-lie.html

According to a survey done a few years ago by The Mount Vernon Assn. fully 36% of college students had absolutely no idea when The Revolutionary War, The Civil War,WW1,WW2, Korea or The Vietnam War began, ended or for what reasons these wars were fought. You can't be ''condemned to relive the past'' if you have no clue when it was.
