MSNBC’s Dyson Blasts Justice System: ‘Zimmermans Of The World’ Get Away w/ ‘Killing Of Our Children’
Mediaite ^ | July 9, 2013 | Noah Rothman

Posted on 07/09/2013 3:34:16 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

On Tuesday, Georgetown University Professor Michael Eric Dyson told MSNBC’s Martin Bashir that he believes, if the racial distinctions were reversed in the case against George Zimmerman for the 2012 murder of Trayvon Martin, the public’s reaction to the cases would be dramatically different. He added that the “George Zimmermans of the world continue to get away” with “the killing of our children” without facing justice.

Dyson began by lamenting the course of court proceedings in which, he said, Martin was “dying again the death of a thousand qualifications, which is what our legal system is about.”

“I don’t have much faith in the processes here, because it doesn’t really speak — they don’t really speak to the issues that are being raised here,” he continued.

Dyson said that, if Zimmerman is acquitted of murder charges, “then the children of poor and people of color in this country do not have the same quality of justice as given to those who are able to muster up resources and defend themselves against such a charge.”

Dyson said that Zimmerman was only arrested and charged in the first due to the public “outcry,” leaving him with little hope that a jury would find him guilty. “Part of the moral victory was getting him into the courtroom to be subject to criminal proceedings to begin with,” Dyson added.....

Isn’t Zimmerman a “people of color”? Or does this idiot mean there is only one kind of “people of color” color? I’m off white...isn’t that a color?

If racial distinctions were reversed, this case won't even made to court.

Eh, what hyperbolic rhetoric and incorrect since blacks are more likely to be killed by other blacks.

I’m sure the MSNBC host didn’t bother to challenge Dyson.

I really can’t listen to black people any more on this subject.

For the most part, they seem utterly incapable and absolutely unwilling to understand what is going on here.

They seem willing to put this man in prison for the rest of his life or kill him on whatever tortured reason they can come up with, and it is sickening.

Trayvon Martin was killed because he was a violent criminal under the influence of drugs attempting to murder a man, and that man saved his own life by killing him.

Deal with it.

coulduh been the other way Dyson.

Trayvon could be the one getting away with murder...

All it would have took was one perfect blow to the head from his fist or bouncing Zimm’s head off the concrete and he’d be dead.

The Martin family shakedown crew has had the unlimited resources of the State. Mr. Zimmerman certainly has not.

Chicago had 75 murders of black men over the 4th holidays.

Somehow Bashir and MSNBC managed to miss that info.

And .. as for Zimmerman .. if some druggie was sitting on me punching and pounding on me .. there’s no way I would care what color they were; or even what gender they were .. because gender and color had nothing to do with it.

What is the ratio of innocent white people killed by blacks compared to the number of innocent blacks killed by white people. I don’t mean to suggest that Trayvon was in anyway innocent.

Given a lack of any evidence at all that he initiated the encounter, I would certainly and absolutely support a 29-year-old black neighborhood watch captain who shot a 17-year-old white kid who was on top of him smashing his nose and pounding his head into the concrete.

“dying again the death of a thousand qualifications, which is what our legal system is about.”

Don't worry, Mikey, the vigilante justice you dream of is just around the corner, but it's not going to work out the way it does in your affirmative action-deluded dreams.

“Isn’t Zimmerman a “people of color”? Or does this idiot mean there is only one kind of “people of color” color? I’m off white...isn’t that a color?”

I’m sorry - (a.), he is not he “right” color to suite the narrative; and (b.) “Latino” is not a race in this particular situation (although, strangely enough, it is in others), for the same reason.

Just a comment (not directed at anyone):

Well don’t let your kids run the streets and burglarize houses. If you see them doing Fight Club or posting negative racist rants online it should make you pay attention. If you notice your kid has horrible grades and got busted for selling marijuana thats a problem. Of course if you’re kicking back and drinking a few beers and smoking pot around your kids, can’t hold down a job and live off welfare benefits and you wonder why your kid is out at all hours of the night and always seems to have money or jewelry or both YOU might be the problem.
