Skip to comments.Church Sign in Alabama: "George Zimmerman Jury Supported White Racism”
Posted on 07/17/2013 11:03:35 AM PDT by Kaslin
Churches across Alabama are known for their clever and sometimes humorous signs promoting the Sunday sermon but not many people are laughing at the sign outside the New Era Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala.
Theyre calling me a hate-monger, Pastor Michael R. Jordan told Fox News. Most whites down South dont like it.
The sign reads, George Zimmerman jury supported white racism. It was first reported by Birmingham news reporter Greg Garrison.
Jordan said he made the decision to post the controversial statement after preaching the Sunday night message, calling Zimmerman a racist and his acquittal a racist verdict.
I believe racism and bias and prejudice caused the jury to be sympathetic, he told Fox News. Race played a major, major role in their decision and in their thinking.
He said the 100-member congregation was stunned by the verdict.
George Zimmerman deputized himself as a law enforcement agent, Jordan said. I feel he was a racist. He was stereotyping. He stalked and killed Trayvon Martin.
The black minister also placed blame on white pastors.
Theres been a breakdown in the white clergy, he said. They refuse to preach against blatant racism in America.
As a result, he believes the lives of black Americans have been devalued.
We can send Michael Vick to prison for killing dogs, but we cant send George Zimmerman to prison for murdering an African-American young man.
Jordan said hes gotten lots of complaints about the sign but he refuses to take it down.
They tell me Im spreading hate, he said But the sign is staying up.
Can we ban the word “racism”?
I am highly offended by it.
What the h*** is the matter with people? Has the world gone nuts?
Where did this guy come from.
I haven’t spoken to a white man yet who didn’t agrees that Zimmerman was innocent.
I have a woman I went to school with in the 60’s who was dissappointed that he wasn’t found guilty, but she was a nut then got pregnant while in school, and now thinks more of her dog than her husband.
Racist?? This guy is insane. Don’t try to convince me it was racist I will slam you right quick with facts.
Martin was a criminal in training. A thief, a drug user and seller. A burglar, a bully who sought out fights, Thank Goodness Zimmerman got him before he bred.
The racism is coming from the black side and they can shout it all they like my answer is They are full of crap.

And the prosecutors, Obama, etc,
support black racism.
Dear Pastor Jordan:
"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God." (Matthew 5:9 KJV)
Do your words bless you or indict you?
That sign would look really nice with a shotgun hole in the middle of it
I hope this pastor has a good answer ready when he’s asked by the ultimate authority to account for his time as a ‘christian’ leader.
This pastor says “the lives of African-Americans have been devalued”. Yes they have. Judging by the black on black violence, he is right on target.
Yesterday, when I was in KMart to visit their pharmacy, there were 2 strapping young black men--probably teenagers about Trayvons age. They weren't at all friendly or disarming.
There was a palpably tension among those folks waiting for prescriptions.
Folks of all races are usually chatty and friendly there, but not yesterday...folks looked nervous.
I noticed a difference in myself...a sense of anticipation.
Note that these kids were most likely just normal high schoolers...but their presence made folks nervous in a way completely new since the Trayvon trial and aftermath.
It was though someone had brought two pit bulls into the store. An element of potential and unpredictable danger was introduced.
I’m beginning to believe the black sense of entitlement is beginning to extend to the right to beat and rape white people.
What the h*** is the matter with people? Has the world gone nuts?
Note sure if that church rape sign is a warning for blacks NOT to do it or not...
Remember what Obama said during his campaign about whites attitude towards blacks.
You're just proving Obama right again. /sarcasm>
Beginning to, eh?
Alabama is just short for Allah O’Bama!
We have a Walgreen’s not far from where we live and I used to get my prescriptions filled there. Every time I was there for a pick up there would be a few of those young black men hanging around. I watched them pick up scripts and talk to the pharmacist about their 0 pay Medi Cal cards over and over til I finally moved my prescriptions to another pharmacy. Its a little further but a different class of clientele.
They’ve got Talladega, so it ain’t all bad.
Hispanic guy shoots black guy and is acquited by women.
Who’s at fault? The white man.
Is that like the 'facts is old school' way of thinking?
If it was a warning they wouldn’t have specified the victim’s ethnicity.
Unfortunately this idiot just feeds into an outdated incorrect stereotype that blacks are somehow ignorant or stupid. This guy is indeed ignorant and stupids. Who called the police and who didn’t? Zimmerman is NOT white. The guy doesnt even know the basics of the case. It’s a shame and actually sets back progress.
I think someone hit the “nut the hell up” button somewhere because this is all becoming so over the top it’s ridiculous.
Exactly how was the jury ‘racist’? All the ‘whites’ vs. 1 ‘Hispanic’ and all? What gave the impression of superiority by the color of ones’ skin?
Since most of ‘em couldn’t tell you the difference between ‘racist’ and ‘bigot’, as soon as someone trots out the word I usually write ‘em off.
And sadly, that same unease you felt, they felt. And will likely fuel more anger and justification from them in the future.
This is a sad, sorry state of affairs.
Yep, it’s pathetic to keep getting painted as something we are not. I refuse to participate in this mob mentality. I myself have done nothing wrong, yet I keep getting lumped in with the white guilt losers. I wonder where all this is going and where it will eventually land.
Elders need to start the search process for a new pastor.
Wasn’t there a black woman juror?
So what do they think SHOULD happen if you “rape a white woman”? Rapists shouldn’t go to prison if they rape a white woman? Are they saying rapists of nonwhite women get away with it?
The real world is just so opposite of what these people think. White women are raped by blacks much, MUCH more than the reverse, but no white church would ever be allowed to mention that on their sign.
A white Freeper recently posted that he was starting to feel like a Jewish person around 1935. I know how he feels.
They came into the store just as I was getting my prescriptions and they moved through the store steadily without shopping and then went out the front door just as I was leaving.
They never spoke to each other but moved together and then left.
It had a feel of intentional intimidation.
They weren't wearing hoodies or baggy pants but their attire was something they might wear in the hood.
5 White women and 1 Hispanic.
We need to follow the left’s lead and simply change the meaning of the word.
Racism becomes - the act, or belief, that puppies are awesome
Racist = a puppy lover
Irrational Lefty: Kandy, you is racist!
Kandy: Thank you. I do love puppies.
I believe who says race first is the racist.
‘strapping young black men’
A lefty Afro-American swashbuckler had a literary homo-erotic wet-dream the other day, describing such Trayvons as: “glistening black bucks.” Charles Blow, that’s who it was.
The left is one big insane asylum lately. Heh.
Concerning the 1 hispanic on the jury...I read that she might have had some AA blood, at least she couldn’t be called a “white” hispanic. Because she just had a certain “look” about her that cause observers to think so.
Quite a few posters here seemed to assume she would be a typical Obama Democrat from Chicago -she had just moved to FL from there.
Then there was the black who was excluded from the jury by the prosecutor when it was learned he got his news from the FNC.
This is a Black Rage Ping List, (by request,) to cover the aftermath of the GZ trial and archive the incidents. Let me know. And please add "blackrage" to the keywords. Thank you.
“What the h*** is the matter with people? Has the world gone nuts?”
Racism blossomed as soon as Hussein took his first oath of office as president. He and Holder want racial war.
Ouch. That’s going to leave a mark.
This is the current situation. If youre NOT willing to act based on race then you are a racist.
They want it so they can declare martial law and suspend the constitution. I don’t know why they think it matters though. They haven’t gone by a damn word of it so far anyway.
