Church Sign Generates Emotional Debate Over Race After Zimmerman Verdict
CBS Local ^ | 7/16/13 | cbs

Posted on 07/16/2013 11:11:07 AM PDT by Nachum

CHICAGO (CBS) – A sign posted outside a south suburban church is generating a powerful debate over race in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict.

The marquee outside the First Baptist Church of University Park earlier this week read: “It Is Safe To Kill Black People In Amerikkka.”

On Saturday, a jury of six women in Florida acquitted Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Several comments on the church’s Facebook page took issue with the reference to the Ku Klux Klan in the word Amerikkka, with many saying the church’s sign is hateful and divisive and implies that all white Americans are racist

The church responded by saying: “The message on the sign is not a message of hate. It is a message of awakening and call to action. It is a message not intended to divide, but to cause honest reflection in order to make this country a better place for ALL.”

Uh, except that the people who wrote the marquee are the ones that need to wake up and to reflect honestly. How is putting this on a sign going to help them do that?

So... blacks ARE allowed to pummel anyone they don’t like looking at them. That’s fine.

That is the hinge upon this whole mess is based.

Blacks are ALLOWED to beat ‘crackas’ - any time they ‘feel’ dissed, even by being looked at.

No, it’s not “safe to kill black people”.

It’s safe to kill people who are in the process of killing YOU.

I called and left this message:

I have a suggestion for your church sign.

It Is Safe For Blacks to Murder Blacks In Chicago!

'Cause Blacks Don't Care About That!

I think that’s what some are most upset about -

it’s culturally acceptable to them to be violent to someone over an act of perceived “disrespect”.

And we’re “violating” that cultural right by holding them to a “white” standard.

Someone needs to spraypaint a bright red “Z” on the top of the sign.

Actually it seems it is OK to kill Black people, but ONLY if you are Black also. At least that is what the media and Black leaders are teaching us.

The father of lies a murderer fromt he start is more brilliant than people can even imagine. His influence can generate some of the most brilliant twisiting of truth and never be identified as the source of the evil. But at least we have many of the enemies of We The People (of all races and ethnic groups) self identifying so they can be excluded from the rebuilding process.

Those electronic sign parts are expensive.
Just the L.E.D. Display boards on each side will cost 7-10K to replace.

First Baptist Church of University Park earlier this week read: “It Is Safe To Kill Black People In Amerikkka.”

The Left Religion in America is 'Satan's love which is anything Anti-American!'

This First Baptist Church must be led by a follower of Rev. not-Wright.

What would Jesus say...clearly this church is apostate.

This pastor prolly does not teach young black men if they fight like thugs they may be dead like thugs.

You may be correct.

This whole thing sickens me. I have black friends who will no longer look me in the eye at church. And I can’t understand why they don’t understand. They were rational people a few weeks ago.

Excellent observation Mr B. I would guess that Big Al and Jessie could not assimilate such a thought.

The sad irony of it is that it is the exact opposite. It’s ok for negroes to kill crackas.

I suggest posting a prayer request at this church for them to pray for the ability to stop doing such things that are nothing more than incidiary & conterproductive.

Church Sign Generates Emotional Debate Over Race After Zimmerman Verdict

I really should pay more attention...I obviously missed the sign after the 532nd murder victim was laid to rest last year.

When the left does it, the media says they "Generate Emotional Debate". When a conservative does it (Ted Nugent), the media says they are "providing ammunition to further stoke tensions".

See how they do that?

The media is evil.

It’s not hateful - okay, so then I guess you wouldn’t mind if down the block, at our church, we put up the sign “It’s not safe to attack White Ameriguns”

Only one party used racial slurs during the conflict between George and Trayvon. That was Trayvon. He probably picked up the racist and violent ‘tude towards Crackers who look at him sideways from his family, school and church. Liberals really do want hate and violence between blacks and whites.

I hope they personally get what they want up close. When liberals get mugged, the racist violence they stoke, is not so cool anymore.
