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....

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”

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.

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.

“Glistening black buck....” The liberal mantra is intensely racist. They view the night as the legitimate stalking ground of black gangsters. Black to a liberal is synonymous with violent. They have no expectation that the black man is civilized. Liberals have rounded up every poor, uneducated black and crowded them into disease and crime ridden ghettos, the better to work their evil intent. They have manufactured a ready made tool for violence and blackmail. Race mongers threaten riots when their demands are not met. This is a foul and putrid corruption and must be ended.

If there is any question about the just beat down of a cracka by some Trayvon he need only say in his defense that he thought said cracka was a queer cracka. Case dismissed!

And of course, the comments show further ignorance. Blame white supremacy, gun culture, “stand your ground,” failure to understand “black culture,” etc.
Anything but blame the gangsta-wannabe from walking away after being “dissed.”

"The Whole System Failed Trayvon Martin [gag alert]"

OMG is this ever a barf/gag/fart/spew alert. The whole system of transferring of wealth from producers to parasites didn't fail St. Skittles, it ENABLED HIM to live the gangsta style. It provided him with a failed education, and a social media to brag about fighting and for him to praise using weed. Pussified adults made it possible for him to avoid having criminal charges brought against him for his criminal activities. St. Skittles is a spectacular trophy boy for "The Whole System."

They want socialism, not justice for Trayvon. Trayvon is just one of the trains they are trying to ride towards it and the idots board this train to hell.

The whole system created Trayvon Martin.

Every socialist state creates a new people. As Bertholt Brecht told the East German regime, "Would it not be easier in that case for the government to dissolve the people and elect another?"

The American State has created a class of permanent clients, who are 90%+ supporters of the most socialist party.

I really don’t give a flying damn about “black culture” and how it “sees” the issue.

There is a standard of behavior in this country,
and we’ll hold you to it whatever your “culcha” is.

They are aiming for a new system where blacks are always found innocent and whites are always presumed guilty.

“asking the all-female jury — mostly white — to fear the image of the glistening black buck,”

To quote an ESPN ‘reporter’, “Nigga, please?”

"Heavens to Murgatroyd! Exit, stage left."

ROFL!!

The problem here is that it was raining and St. Purple Drank was wearing a hoodie. Zimmerman couldn't see if the hoodie wearer was black or glistening.

Now common sense however, would be that anyone, including the white females on the jury would be TERRIFIED if a glistening black buck had them on their back and was pounding on their faces with the intent to kill them.

The system that failed Trayvon is the culture that taught him he could go beat up a smaller man, and get away with it. Now that system/culture is outraged that it didn’t happen because they wanted it.

Let's be clear about a few things:

- There is more evidence saying Travon was racially motivated than saying Zimmerman was.
- Someone needs to stand up and be the voice of reason - if we all riot whenever we choose to be offended, then there will be chaos (which is obviously the agenda of some).
- If Travon had been been white and Zimmerman black, would there be as much uproar? I think not!
- If both Travon and Zimmerman had been white, would there be as much uproar? I think not!
- If both Travon and Zimmerman had been black, would there be as much uproar? Obviously not - it happens in Chicago everyday!
- The Prosecution was involved in the jury selection. So all of those offended by the acquittal are esssentially saying the Prosecution was part of the great white conspiracy against blacks. How absurd!!!
- Is the EEO now going to get involved in jury selection?

What has failed is the war on drugs. The illegal drug industry sucks minority kids into the drug distribution racket. This is happening because legitimate employment opportunities are lacking or cannot compete.

"fear the image of the glistening black buck"

That is amusing. It wasn't the shirtless photo of Sweet Little Trayvon, it was the bloody photo of George Zimmerman that triggered fear and justified the act of self-defense that the far left fringe wants criminalized.
