Rodney King 2.0: Trayvon Martin Shows America Has Not Made Progress on Race
PolicyMic ^ | June 21, 2012 | Olivia Davis

Posted on 06/21/2012 8:18:24 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

“What people often forget in Rodney King's story is that it was not about race — it was about justice — just like the case of Trayvon Martin. Let's not miss another opportunity to progress.” So said Al Sharpton in a piece for BET.com.

Sadly, with the memories of Rodney King’s brutal beating by police and Trayvon Martin’s murder by a neighborhood watchman, it has been difficult to pinpoint what qualifies as progress. The horrific happenings indicated that America needed a wake up call or two.

First and foremost, the injustice that occurred should be a warning to all Americans that no one is safe. Regardless of how much we press for equal rights, as well as individual rights, there will be times when we will need to work out the kinks, and there will be times when we will mourn the causalities. However, the ultimate message is that no one should be safe from correction when they are wrong.

Problem: “Zimmerman Complex”

Simply, George Zimmerman is evil. The main tool which he used to violate Trayvon’s Martin’s personal freedoms was among the things upon which people really disagree: gun laws. Additionally, his “authority complex” also murdered Trayvon Martin; he believed that it was up to him to decide a punishment for a suspect, thus violating all premises of our American justice system.

As my mother would always express to me, “We will never be able to legislate an attitude.” With this reflection, looking at Trayvon Martin’s case is disheartening. Perhaps, even worse, the second message is the most difficult to swallow because it is one to the disproportionately oppressed, black people.

Take Off the Hoodie

Blacks have to cease giving the power to the majority and the satisfaction of keeping a minority down. The entire focus on race is pertinent, but to an extent, unnecessary. By automatically labeling negative instances as a product of racism, (even if the victimization was, in fact, prejudiced), we immediately put ourselves in a box. We put ourselves in a category titled, “subhuman.”

Certainly, racism has changed; the faces of racists have changed a bit; the number of racists have changed a lot. However, the victims of racism will always increase. Today, racism has been altered so much that it has taken the form of one of its infamous byproducts, minstrels—masked mockery.

I say take off the hoodie. This is not to be taken literally, but as a response to the marches done in memory of Trayvon Martin. Many across America, possibly some across the world, supported Trayvon Martin by wearing a hoodie or taking a picture with one. I am not arguing against this. I participated in his memory with deep sorrows for his family, friends, and country. I am bothered because of the reason why all us of wore hoodies. It is safe to say that our hearts wanted to convey, “I’m wearing a hoodie, are you going to shoot me too?” But there is something terribly wrong. We had intentions of mocking an alleged racist murderer, but did we accomplish anything by it? I understand that the hoodies were unifying pieces to a huge campaign against the injustice, but did we get a groundbreaking point across? Unfortunately, we did not completely.

Bryan Stevenson, founder of the Equal Justice Initiative said in a TED talk that "[blacks’] identity is at risk" when referring to the overwhelming numbers of black inmates on death row. This is essentially the main cusp of what allows police brutality and backfires on racial justice. Our (America’s) job is to (constantly) re-level injustices against blacks (humanity)—to salvage our identity.

Trayvon’s Death Was One of America’s Many Moments to Shine

To allow Trayvon Martin, like Rodney King, to rest in peace, America needs to bring justice and judicial reform. Instead of focusing on race, Trayvon Martin’s case should be about making changes, such as the results from the injustice against Rodney King.

Rodney King changed Los Angeles; I think Trayvon Martin’s case has the potential bring about ways to mitigate the injustice in America. Our Constitution’s Preamble affirms, “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice ...” America’s identity is at risk.

If there is one word that I am frankly sick of hearing...it is the word “progress”.

I guess African Americans have “progressed” by keeping themselves in poor neighborhoods, having 80% of their children out of wedlock, leading the country in arrests, and the general malaise that voting for Democratic leaders in their cities has brought on throughout these many years?

Progress...indeed.

I suppose there will soon be laws that prohibit a Caucasian
from defending himself/herself against black aggression.
It will be considered retribution for past evils.

We all know that this Florida case would never have seen the
light of day had the participants been of the same race.

Dear Olivia,

Rodney king was committing a felony (Evading police at over 100 mph) when he got stopped.

I guess Trayvon was like Rodney - breaking the law by assaulting George Zimmerman.

I have a newsflash for you, Olivia. When I am threatened, I will defend myself and my family. I don’t care if you are white, black, red, purple, green... I’m an equal oportunity defender.

Another freeper already suggested that this crime be called "resisting retribution."

Criminal kid “staying” (they never live anywhere) with the baby daddy casing out the next place to rob is followed by someone. That someone turns to leave and criminal follows him and physically assaults him.

If GZ wanted to murder someone, why does he wait until he gets beat up and potentially unconscious with a complex full of witnesses to then fire off one shot?

This is a political maneuver by the prosecutor appointed for this reason. The charges should be knocked out by the stand your ground motion. Prepare for the riots that will follow ANY verdict.

How does race enter into it at all? Hispanic kills black in self defense is somehow symptomatic of an entire culture??

No. It’s an opportunity for the race hustlers who feared a white country elected a black president would put them all out of business. This is a “we still need black studies affirmative action race card can still be played” moment to exploit.

Sorry Olivia. America has failed you and not provided you a decent education that would result in fair reasoning.

I am truly sorry you will always be a victim due to a thing that is entirely out of your control but well within mine.

Know this, I do not and never would begrudge a single thing you wished for and worked for.

That is about as racial as gets babe. Grow up. The world ain’t against you so much as your thought process is.

“If GZ wanted to murder someone,....”

then why would he call the cops first?

That’s the response I use to any of the Martin sympathizers when they say “How do you know Zimmerman didn’t have malicious intent when he followed Trayvon?”. So far, I haven’t gotten a single response.

I would take the (REPARATIONS) free money and that would do wonders for my family, no Gucci or Prada!

Dear Olivia,

George Zimmerman is black. He may have had a white grandfather and a white grandmother, but so did Barack Obama. Is Hispanic ancestry so powerful that it obliterates his black ancestry? This is just black-on-black violence...

and Zimmerman is not evil, he was the victim of an unprovoked attack. If Martin had succeeded in killing him, as he was trying to do, you would have never heard of either of them.

Find some other case to get worked up over. In a country of over 300 million people, you will be able to find some examples of white-on-black violence.

Ah, I see now. Joining the Neighborhood Watch, mentoring black kids, protesting police brutality against a black guy, was all part of a clever set-up to build his “backstory” to throw off suspicion!

George Zimmerman isn’t just a racist, he’s a racist criminal genius! He probably committed all those burglaries himself just to give him an excuse to harass black people in his neighborhood!

As long as the Liberal Media live and rule we will always have blacks that think we “Whities” think of them as “Niggers”.

Once the people of the “Black” persuasion continue listening and believing they will forever continue to be mere “Niggers” and will never realize their full potential as a true American Citizens.

After they take off the hoodies, pull up their pants, quit slouching, start speaking clear understandable English, act polite and are considerate of all people regardless of race, and take responsibility for their own future and that of their family - then they will come into their own and can become human and not scum.

There are many that have made the transition and they have been accepted as good men (by most). We have some whites that see only the bad blacks and not the good wholesome, responsible upstanding American (black) citizens.

That will fade is more were to make the transitions from nigger to black citizen.

I call flaming BS. I detest this noise; it’s hateful and beyond all but the most vile and blatant racism ever practiced by the most prejudiced and biased of whites. Whites have made astronomical progress on race, more than any other nation in history, I would reckon. But they can never be given credit, because that would dilute the story. The payoff hasn’t been enough, given the forced vision of “equal outcomes”, because the other side cannot see the virtue of individual sovereignty and individual effort and motivation. The fact of the matter is that there is no white counterpart to the urban “ferals” as I call them in the so-called Black community. There can never be an accounting of the general lack of aspiration within the black community, because if it were ever faced, it would lead to the very biased outlook so many decry. This whole phenomenon is like a dog returning to eat its own vomit. They can have it.

Dear Olivia:

Did you know that Rodney King had beaten an Asian storekeeper nearly to death before his own famous beatdown?

Did you know he was high on PCP - “Dusted” on “Angel Dust” - when the police tried to arrest him and this is why he was seemingly unstoppable and required all the force that was applied?

Do you think that O.J. Simpson is innocent of killing his estranged wife Nicole and a stranger named Ron Goldman?

Fat and stupid and racist is no way to go through life, Olivia.

So since you can't legislate the attitude that George Zimmerman is evil, you decided to try to create that attitude as a meme, eh, Olivia?

Not to mention convicting George Zimmerman without a trial by calling him a murderer.

So let's see, race-baiting to Nazi levels of labelling a man evil without a trial, in order to whip up millions of people into a murderous rage themselves, and personally endanger his life and the lives of his family members.

You're just a sweetheart, Olivia.

Excuse me? Trayvon's last words to George Zimmerman, when Trayvon saw Zimmerman had a pistol (legally carried) in his belt and promptly reached for it, were "You gonna die tonight, m***********" and, oops, "You got me."

What part of that profession of retributive competence does NOT answer to the motive you ascribe to George Zimmerman instead, honey?

Oh, and Zimmerman had a permit for his piece. You planning to get one for that hair?

David Ehrenstein, the black gay Jewish Velvet Underground historian out in L.A. who coined the nick "Magic Negro" for Obama in an early 2007 article in the Los Angeles Times, was making exactly that point. "Magic Negro" meant that Obama's "immaculation" would tend to reduce the store of playable white guilt -- which of course was undesirable from the POV of a black Jewish "Gay PC Terrorist", which was Ehrenstein's own tagline on Salon's "TableTalk" 12 years ago.

What I want to know is, how did this guy -- he must be scary smart! -- manage to set himself up with a mixed-race Peruvian background?! Now that was pure genius, just breathtaking!

(In Peru, GZ wouldn't even be called white; he would be called jibaro or something close to it, meaning a partly-Indian person with "about" or "nearly" half European ancestry and some aliquot of African ancestry.)
