Skip to comments.Predictions Of Riots If Zimmerman Acquitted Display Appalling Lack Of Faith In Black Community

Imagine the pleasant surprise I encountered after reading the headline just in case George Zimmerman walks free adorning the top of a post composed by hip hop mogul and GlobalGrind.com founder Russell Simmons. It was my hope that Simmons, a respected voice in the black community, would spell out for an attentive audience why pundits preparing their audiences for riots in the wake of a possible acquittal were wrong. Instead, Simmons identified a variety of victories that resulted from the killing of Trayvon Martin. He cited setbacks for the National Rifle Association and state-level Stand Your Ground laws which he believes the activists who turned the trial into a political proxy war made possible. Simmons post is just one of many reckless provocations that have become a lamentably familiar aspect of the coverage of this trial and its effect of inflaming passions without enlightening, as National Journals Matthew Cooper put it.
But worse than the base impulse to score political points and threaten national comity by implying that one or another cultural worldview is threatened by a verdict in a far-flung murder trial are the pundits and officials readily preparing for and, in some cases, stoking through innuendo a violent reaction from African-Americans should the jury find Zimmerman not guilty. What is most striking is that few bristle with offense at the obscene implication that African-Americans will be unable to internalize such an outcome without lashing out in an uncivilized fashion.....

Or maybe it has to do with threats or rioting from the black community.
I personally don’t expect them to do much but I’m not blind to the threats.
I guess Zimmerman was supposed to have waited until Martin beat him to death or brain damage before he was justified in defending himself. If only he had allowed his skull to be bashed in a little bit more, he would have a case. /sarc
You don’t expect what? .. blacks to riot ?
In preparation for the possibility of an acquittal of George Zimmerman, The New Black Panther Party has reportedly begun a mobilization campaign to target white communities.
” Predictions Of Riots If Zimmerman Acquitted Display Appalling Lack Of Faith In Black Community”
Not really, it fits in exactly with what the Black Community has historically shown us!
The “appalling” part is trumped-up charges were brought against him anyway
Now their hope is an ignorant jury will “compromise” out of pity . . or fear
No much no. Maybe some minor unrest but nothing serious lasting more than a night or two.
I watched a few minutes of the trial today, and it made me sick how the prosecutor played every contrived grievance of the mooching community. It is like he wants riots.
Someone should investigate him and oBambi for inciting riots.
Idiot, brought a shotgun to a sniper fight.
Terrorism, Obama Style.
I don’t understand why they need a Trayvon trial to riot...unless Uncle Sugar is paying them.
Well,rioting caused the trial to occur in the first place.
What you reward, you tend to get more of; that said, if there are riots, I expect the vast majority of participants will be the regular criminal element, not large numbers of ordinary citizens. I believe the entire Zimmerman show trial has been a deliberate appeal to the lowest of the low from the beginning.
The Black riots after the Zimmerman trial will be nothing compared to the White riots after the OJ trial.
Who Is Racist?
By Thomas Sowell
I am so old that I can remember when most of the people promoting race hate were white.
Apparently other Americans also recognize that the sources of racism are different today from what they were in the past. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 31 percent of blacks think that most blacks are racists, while 24 percent of blacks think that most whites are racist.
The difference between these percentages is not great, but it is remarkable nevertheless. After all, generations of blacks fought the white racism from which they suffered for so long. If many blacks themselves now think that most other blacks are racist, that is startling.
The moral claims advanced by generations of black leaders claims that eventually touched the conscience of the nation and turned the tide toward civil rights for all have now been cheapened by today’s generation of black “leaders,” who act as if it is all just a matter of whose ox is gored.
Even in legal cases involving terrible crimes the O.J. Simpson murder trial or the charges of gang rape against Duke University students many black “leaders” and their followers have not waited for facts about who was guilty and who was not, but have immediately taken sides, based on who was black and who was white.
Among whites, according to the same Rasmussen poll, 38 percent consider most blacks racist and 10 percent consider most whites racist.
Broken down by politics, the same poll showed that 49 percent of Republicans consider most blacks racist, as do 36 percent of independents and 29 percent of Democrats.
Perhaps most disturbing of all, just 29 percent of Americans as a whole think race relations are getting better, while 32 percent think race relations are getting worse. The difference is too close to call, but the fact that it is so close is itself painful and perhaps a warning sign for where we are heading.
Well, as many have already pointed out, there are plenty of precedents for rioting if Zimmerman is acquitted.
But also, this is not an appalling lack of faith. The left ADMIRES this kind of behavior, and they can hardly wait for the rioting to start.
And of course Holder and Obama can’t wait, either. It’s what they’ve been hoping for. Great excuse for more government lawlessness.
They riot either way, win or lose they will burn something......like Detroit after an NBA Championship.
What an effing idiot.
Displaying a obvious knowledge of history....
I would love to be surprised and have no riots, but I'll not hold my breath.
To the Black Community:
You want whites to respect you and treat you as equals?
Stop acting like the word you profess to hate but love to use yourselves.
Class or no class, it's your choice.
Martin wasn’t bashing Zimmerman’s head with a chunk of concrete. He was bashing the chunk of concrete with Zimmerman’s head.
There are many fine blacks in America and have been since the founding of this country.
But those who hate America and Whitey (like the President, for example) are looking for a reason to rumble. And may God bless them if they rumble.
Because they will scrape off the facade of civilization from ole Whitey...and at his core they will find someone who has been pushed way beyond his limit...they will find the natural human traits of an alpha society. Yes this society can and will revert to astounding cruelty toward those who threaten it and them.
If you think Idi Amin was brutal...wait til you scrape down to the bone of civilized man.
Hey Al Sharpton and Jesse and Barry the Downlow Boy...you are stirring up a nest of rattlesnakes. You don't won't to do this.
I am just an observer of humanity...but you really don't want to do this.
I have a lot of faith in the black “community”.
I have no doubt at all that many will act just the way they always do:
Like out of control racist whack-jobs.
They love any excuse for a good street happening, fires and free TV’s.
“...pundits and officials readily preparing for and, in some cases, stoking through innuendo a violent reaction from African-Americans should the jury find Zimmerman not guilty.”
Most black citizens of Los Angeles didn’t riot after the Rodney King verdict, either. In fact, a black family saved Reginald Denny’s life after he was beaten by some rioters. That doesn’t mean there wasn’t a bleepload of rioting and burning going on in the city. There’s good and bad in every group, and it’s silly not to at least consider the possibility that the lowlifes will react violently if Zimmerman is acquitted.
So they have basically burned down most of their communities and caused all the store to shut down so they have nothing to loot. But remember, they are peaceful people looking to to get their lives back on track.
Exactly. If GZ is convicted, celebratory looting, buring and shooting. If GZ is acquitted, angry looting, buring and shooting.
Noah Rothman, you are either a shameless race-baitor or ignorant someinabatch.
The DOJ already have the Hotels booked and Buses laid on
Photo from Philly; same dude.
The black community is not monolithic. Like the rest of America, it is split down the middle. There are those who love America...and those who hate it.
This is not a race war, as much as Obama and Sharpton want us to believe that.
This is a war of culture and ideology. It is Left against Right. Americans against those who wish to overthrow it.
Those blindly following the Dem party should open their eyes at the racism by those whom are insinuating that the AA community can’t control themselves.
If he invades the suburbs, he will learn why “whitey” has been buying 5.56mm buy the truck load.
Until the black community proves differently.
Gads, the idiot's too stupid to know Zimmerman's Hispanic? Or is he too afraid to go into a Hispanic neighborhood? Either way, they riot and once again they'll mark themselves as losers...
The person they want to kill are going to look like Barry’s Mother or Grandparents.
There's just no doubt it'll happen. They're already threatening to come out to whitey town and break and burn our stuff so "we feel their pain."
IMO, threats like that which I'm reading on Twitter (kill whitey) are the exact reason high capacity magazines are made.
Just sayin' ..... bring it bitches. If you can find your way. Lord knows most of 'em can't read anyway.
Yet another humanist urban naive idiot who only sees blacks from across east 125th street lecturing us who live around large minority concentrations how to think about something he knows nothing about
The rioters will be bused in from places where the word “community” has no meaning.
And they will be gunned down en masse if they pull that garbage in Texas.
