The Whole System Failed Trayvon Martin [gag alert]
New York Times ^ | July 15, 2013 | Charles Blow

Posted on 07/16/2013 10:57:44 AM PDT by Enchante

The system failed him when everyone in the courtroom raised racial bias in roundabout ways, but almost never directly — for example, when the defense held up a picture of a shirtless Martin and told the jurors that this was the person Zimmerman encountered the night he shot him. But in fact it was not the way Zimmerman had seen Martin. Consciously or subconsciously, the defense played on an old racial trope: asking the all-female jury — mostly white — to fear the image of the glistening black buck, as Zimmerman had.

This ludicrous op-Ed is posted mainly for the humor, but it is also a serious matter that so many can see the case through such racist lenses of the grievance mongering left.

The writer manages to ignore or distort every relevant fact, while barraging the reader with a laundry list of idiocies.

This kind of article shows how badly the self-appointed “elites” are doing....

Short version: Urban Trayvons have a right to play Knockout King on any fay cracka they catch alone at night.

The whole system was stacked against GZ but this is what I would expect a stupid, token affirmative action Jackson to say.

Follow the Leader, Charles. One day you might get an original, nonracist thought in your ‘brain”

That seems to be the message, doesn’t it?

It appears that Trayvon is the one who failed . . .

A good system is carefully designed to fail “thugs” and help good people.

These folks are idiots who a. don’t know the law here in the USA.
b. Couldn’t decipher right from wrong if their lives depended upon it.

The only person who PROFILED was Martin.
The only person who BROKE THE LAW was Martin with his assault and battery of Zimmerman.

Charles Blow (NYT black homosexual token) was one of the first people to jump on the Trayvon bandwagon.

Thugvon Martin was the failure. A loser in every sense of the world. A trainwreck otherwise waiting to happen. GZ did society a favor once Thugvon gave him the opening.

Assault and battery on, according to what Jabba the Witness said in her interview,

someone he thought was a “cop or security guard”.

The Left's stock-in-trade, from the Jacobins on, has always been The Blame & Envy Game.

The whole system did not fail Trayvon Martin, only those who having the responsibility to do so, never advised him as to the possible consequences both moral & practical in starting an altercation with a stranger, by sucker-punching him in the night. There is some failure in that, all must acknowledge.

So Blow was posting his homo-ephebophilic fantasies with the “glistening buck” stuff.

That crazy woman on ‘Designing Women’ comes to mind:
“Black man! Black man!”
And they call us crackers. The left is imploding.
