Skip to comments.CNN: Is ‘black manhood’ on trial in Zimmerman case?
Posted on 07/08/2013 9:13:07 AM PDT by mandaladon
In an article posted on The Nations website last week, Mychal Denzel-Smith suggested that in the George Zimmerman trial underway for the murder of Trayvon Martin, it isnt Zimmerman who is on trial, but Martin and black manhood.
Denzel-Smith made an appearance on Sundays CNN Newsroom to back up that claim and accuse Zimmerman of depicting Martin as a very cartoonish version of a 17-year-old black boy.
To believe Zimmermans story, I think, because to me it reads like a very cartoonish version of what a 17-year-old black boy would say and do in this situation, Denzel-Smith said. I think you know, to believe that Trayvon Martin was to jump out of the bushes and to approach George Zimmerman and to strike him in the face without any type of provocation sounds to me like you have to believe that there is an inherent criminality and inherent violence in 17-year-old black boys that you see.
Denzel-Smith went on to suggest that Zimmerman thought his neighborhood was threatened by Martin because of Martins skin color.
The operator didnt explicitly tell him not to follow but said they didnt need him to, Denzel-Smith continued. But I think George Zimmerman again, this is my opinion but after identifying Trayvon Martin was a young black man that he felt his neighborhood was in more danger than you know, the police could handle at that specific time and that he needed to assure himself and his neighborhood they would be protected.
Joining Denzel-Smith for the segment was Rod Vereen, attorney for the prosecutions witness Rachel Jeantel. Vereen agreed with Denzel-Smiths suggestion that black manhood was on trial in the case.

I believe crime statistic refute what these two racist clowns are saying.
What they’re enraged about is the possibility that young black men won’t be able to administer a payback beatdown with impunity.
The media is who is ones always portraying Trayvon as a 12 year old boy.
Kids much younger than Trayvon are killing rivals everyday in the ‘hood.
“The media is who is ones” = “The media are the ones”
So that entails these poor vitimized black males to call white people “creepy ass cracka’s” and n*gg*s?
There is no standard below which the MSM will not go.
And - of course - CNN competes directly with MSNBC to see which one can plunge deeper into the depths of idiocy.
What’s the status of “black manhood” when it comes to fatherless children or black-on-black murder, which is about 1000% more common than white-on-black homicide?
Trayvon "St. Skittles" Martin called himself @no_limits_nigga ... so by no means can "nigga" be considered offensive.
did you mean “entitles”?
Yes. I guess they are entitled to beatdown and murder “whitey”.
(”It’s our word, you can’t use it”)
Trying to rely on the individual’s acts rather than racial generalizations?
How about Martin without legal justification pounced on the cracker (white N word)then made his face look like a motorcycle ran it over.
Doesn’t sound like a cartoon to me. Why didn’t the interviewer ask that? It’s not rocket science even for a journalist.
Yes, because it's not like a seventeen year old black boy has ever hit someone without any provocation.
This talking head (and, quite frankly, most black people) turn a complete blind eye to the Knockout Game, Polar Bear Hunting, and Mahogany Mobs comprised of seventeen year old black boys that attack without provocation on a daily basis.
It’s not just a trial, it’s a symbol. It’s not about Zimmerman and Martin. It’s a symbol of all Whites and the goal is to condemn all Whites as racist.
Maybe Black Manhood needs to be on trial.
Who is killing the blacks in ghetto’s
Who is responsible for a 70% rate of childbirth without marriage.
Not counting those aborted.
Who is robbing and Raping , and committing crimes?
Who are dropping out of school.
I don’t believe that is what this trial is about, but it would seem a good idea to check out what is happening to black manhood.
“inherent violence and inherent criminality in 17 year old black boys”
And the irony that many fear other ‘17 year old black boys’ may likely turn to riot, looting and the ‘knock-out game’ if they don’t get the verdict they demand.
But in this case, according to the culture in which he was raised, there WAS provocation, if not outright justification, for beating down GZ, if not killing him -
some white lookin’ guy “dissed” TM by following him and suspecting him of mal-intent.
Being a male human of certain age does not make you a “man”, with honor, dignity, respect for family & hard work, etc.
CNN competes directly with MSNBC to see which one can plunge deeper into the depths of idiocy.
Presstitutes aren't exactly renowned for their standards of honesty and integrity.
