Dem Reps Sponsor Resolution Blaming 'Racial Bias' For Trayvon Shooting
Big Government ^ | April 4, 2012 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 04/04/2012 12:58:35 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

There is little to no evidence that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin because Martin was black. But that hasn’t stopped members of the Congressional Black Caucus from sponsoring a resolution linking Martin to gun control and lamenting supposed racial profiling of the teenager:

Honoring the life of 17-year-old, Trayvon Martin, urging the State of Florida and others to repeal the Stand Your Ground law, and admonishing involved parties to pursue full investigations into all homicides, regardless of defenses asserted by the offender.

Whereas on February 26, 2012, Trayvon Martin, an African-American youth, was horrifically shot and killed while walking from his local 7-Eleven in Sanford, Florida, because he was viewed as ‘suspicious' by George Zimmerman …

Whereas Zimmerman's unfounded assumptions and racial bias led to the use of deadly force ….

Resolved, That the House of Representatives--

(1) admonishes any State, local agency, or official acting to obstruct an open investigation or failing to fully execute their official duties in the investigation of the events surrounding the death of Trayvon Martin ….

(5) urges the repeal of the Stand Your Ground law in every applicable State, including Florida.

I hope our elected representatives have enough sense to not vote for this one.

They are going to start some serious race wars if they keep this up. Blacks need to start standing up to these idiots.

Bunch of dumbass Communists that don’t GAFF for dozens of deaths on a daily basis in the Black communities by their own hand, but give them a chance at some propaganda and Obama’s House Boys are front and center to do their dirty work.

Add these rabid racists to the suit Zimmerman should file if he's arrested then exonerated.

Where’s the resolution blaming the dysfunctional, fatherless, urban black culture for Trayvon’s death?

Oh, yeah, telling the truth is offensive.

Damn right. When a “hoody” lays dead for 3 three days only 60 foot from his house and the parents call the morgue to see if he was there. Says a lot...like a whole lot of parental not good and race baiting squared.

And this is the direct result of the fraudulent NBC editing of the 911 call, where they selectively coupled the two statements in the call from Zimmerman to yield “It looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.” This by cutting out the DISPATCHER taking Zimmerman through the questions of the suspect’s description, starting with the most obvious descriptor, his race.

This is exactly the effect that NBC sought to achieve - to set in cement the meme that this was racial profiling. Their lame *ssed apology will mean nothing, since it has taken on a life of its own. At this point the facts are beside the point. They no longer matter. Shades of Duke University: “The facts were wrong, but the narrative was right.”

See my tag. “Predator class” includes people such as this caucus who are all for keeping their constituents defenseless and hence easy targets for the predators among them. IOW, who are OK with the slaughter of blacks in the inner cities by thugs...

This is what’s known as an “unlawful bill of attainder,” and it’s unconstitutional. The legislative branch does not have the power to try someone through issuing findings they acted wrongfully, etc., or the power to then tell local governments to do based on their determination he is guilty.

“Honoring the life ...”? Why, what great things did “No_limit_Nigga” accomplish?

“Sympathizing with those who will miss him” is as far as I’m willing to go, because I’d feel bad if one of my sons were killed, no matter how big a turkey he’d turned out to be.

Innocent* or guilty, at this point I can't see how Zimmerman could get a fair trial.

[*He's innocent.]

the CBC an organization that excludes anyone who isn;t blkack from joining it, talking about racial bias. Oh the stupid irony.

The real racial bias in all of this is the way the media and unscrupulous black leaders have declared a racial jihad on zimmerman from the beginning of this because he is not black.

It’s Duke LaCrosse all over agtain.

Here’s another incident with the family in denial about their kids behavior.

When is the black community going to start accepting the reality that they are responsible for this, not everyone else?

Between them, the whole so-called Black Caucus has possibly one brain cell...and that one is always misfiring. If I were as racist and ignorant as they appear to be, I would wander the earth begging for forgiveness. These collective fools are too much.

“I hope our elected representatives have enough sense to not vote for this one.”

I wouldn’t worry about this latest circus act. That knuckle-dragging Florida cretin Alcee Hastings, a member of the black commie caucus, introduces legislation every session to ban handguns. It never goes anywhere.
