“There is nothing more painful for me at this stage in my life,” Jesse Jackson said several years ago, “than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery—and then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”

“There are very few African-Americans who haven’t had the experience of getting on an elevator and a woman clutching her purse nervously and holding her breath until she had a chance to get off” (From Obama’s speech today)

Actually, we are all nervously clutching our purses and wallets and holding our breathe while Obama is in office.

He called every non-black woman in the country a racist with that comment.

It’s part of the poor me narrative — we’re supposed to feel guilty or sorry for them. Let them get their crap together! Get your freakin’ communities straightened out! Fix your crappy family situation! Fix your damned victimhood drugged-out immoral violent blame-everyone-and-everything-else dumbed-down “culture!” Gather up all the good men and women you’ve called Uncle Toms and start listening to them. Run the race baiters out on the rail!! And y’all can do it without any more of my hard-earned money going down the rat hole!

Utterly infuriating!

In Atlanta,.... African-Americans are 54 percent of the population,.... BUT.... are responsible for 100 percent of homicide,.... 95 percent of rape,.... 94 percent of robbery,... 84 percent of aggravated assault,... and 93 percent of burglary........

(Source: APD Uniform Crime Reports, Apr 2011 to Apr 2012)

Note:...... Would it be fair to say the black culture is a culture of violence based on, not just in Atlanta’s statistics, other major cities these statistics are similar?

Further I believe their environment feeds this as well.....perhaps the “tribal” affect we see in African Nations is also a part of their basic makeup....and if so this is fed by the very nature of the culture and how they view all others outside their race.

http://politicalbrambles.blogspot.com/2013/07/where-is-outrage-in-black-community-for.html

You won’t recognize me. My name was Antonio West and I was the 13-month old child who was shot at point blank range by two black teens who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot. A Grand Jury of my mommy’s peers from Brunswick GA determined the teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty...too bad I was given a death sentence for being innocent and defenseless.

My family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder was not ruled a Hate Crime. Nor did President Obama take so much as a single moment to acknowledge my murder.

I am one of the youngest murder victims in our great Nation’s history, but the media doesn’t care to cover the story of my tragic demise, President Obama has no children who could possibly look like me - so he doesn’t care and the media doesn’t care because my story is not interesting enough to bring them ratings so they can sell commercial time slots.

There is not a white equivalent of Al Sharpton because if there was he would be declared racist, so there is no one rushing to Brunswick GA to demand justice for me. There is no White Panther party to put a bounty on the lives of those who murdered me. I have no voice, I have no representation and unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat innocently in my stroller - I no longer have my life.

So while you are seeking justice for Treyvon, please remember to seek justice for me too. Tell your friends about me, tell you families, get tee shirts with my face on them and make the world pay attention, just like you did for Treyvon.

Thank you.
— in Brunswick, GA.

Oh now...we all have similar deep thoughts. For example, I was out walking my dog and along side the dog path was this huge pile of brown dog chit and I thought to myself....if Obama wasn’t a man that’s what he’d be.

I talk to people from all walks of life everyday and for over 2 years I have never heard anything racist from any of them

I think people mostly want this to go away, see how nothing (much) happened after the verdict?

people are tired of the race card-all people of all races, I almost feel sorry for the people trying to gin up this issue

it is kind of pathetic

nothing will happen tomorrow (today) imho and that will prove the motivation of these people-they are so out of touch it is embarrassing.

Just like Trayvon??????

So did Trayvon commit voter fraud?
Recieve foreign student aid?
Give guns to thousands of guns to mexican drug lords?
Let 52,000 americans with Swiss accounts walk?
Give money to solar companies who gave campaign contributions?
Audit conservatives?
Have a kill list?
Spy on taxpaying citizens?
Defend and arm Islamists terrorists?
Cover up Embassy murders?
Take billions of dollars in trips on the taxpayers dime?
Fly a drone into enemy hands?
Get the phone records of people he considered enemies?
Tax crackas for foodstamps, phones, housing and utilities?
Tell people what to eat whilst scarfing on ribs and lobster?
Stimulate the economy by building tunnels for turtles?
Did Trayvon get a Noble Piece prize for doing absolutely shit??????????

The only thing these 2 turds have in common is neither had a father figure......and 1 being a bigger and more powerful turd then the other.......

No; he is nothing like Trayvon. Obama would never have responded to his situation by committing an act of extreme violence. Martin had already committed Assault 2d degree when Zimmerman shot the gun and it would have turned into an Assault 1st degree had Zimmerman been unarmed. My state punishes asssault 1st with mandatory 5 years.

Obama severely beating or killing a “cracker” without legal excuse? Yeah right!

That guy is so ——in dense, he doesn’t even know what he just said.

I don’t really hate Trayvon, but he was responsible for getting himself shot for handling life the way he did, and if George Zimmerman did anything wrong it was in ignorance.

The thing most interesting to me is what is not being said. Nobody acknowledges that Trayvon assaulted Zimmerman that evening, turning a non incident into a felony.
I believe that blacks think they have the right to beat up anyone they want at anytime for their past and imagined grievances without the slightest repercussions.
None of these race baiters will admit that St. skittles was trying to bash George’s head open on a sidewalk that evening for asking him what he was doing in that neighborhood.

And do you know why? Well, the current posotus just told us. They have been followed for a long time and now feel justified rationalizing responding to this with violence.

you’re welcome... it really is one big punk job that the devil has done in the loving God’s face ever since the devil stopped being a righteous angel. sinning people can be reconciled to God. evil angels can’t. but even yet the damage of the devil is circumscribed by God; he is in “bonds.”

10,000 BLACK MALES have been Murdered by BLACK MALES SINCE Trayvon was shot! Not sure beating the white on black or rather White/Latino on Black crime dead horse is the burning issue of the day.

Why should they care? Leftists have never been against murder. These are the same subhumans who kill their own kids. The only time when they pretend to care about murder is when the KILLSCORE seems unfair.

Psalms 94:3-4 (KJV)
Lord, how long shall the wicked,
how long shall the wicked triumph?

4 How long shall they utter and speak hard things?
and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?

Psalms 94:5-8 (KJV)
They break in pieces thy people, O Lord,
and afflict thine heritage.

6 They slay the widow and the stranger,
and murder the fatherless.

7 Yet they say, The Lord shall not see,
neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.

8 Understand, ye brutish among the people:
and ye fools, when will ye be wise?

Psalms 94:22-23 (KJV)
But the Lord is my defence;
and my God is the rock of my refuge.

23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity,
and shall cut them off in their own wickedness;
yea, the Lord our God shall cut them off.

Go back 35 years Obama cited in his most recent statements to inject himself into the matter. He is living with his grandparents in a high-rise apartment building near Kanehoe, Hawaii (with a view). Granny is either on her way to, or has become, a bank vice president. Gramps is still a failed businessman. But "Pops" is looking for a black role model for young Barry. Enter communist party member (and child molester), Frank Marshall Davis. Barry is attending THE most exclusive school in Hawaii. The school for Hawaii's elite. Punahou Academy. Barry works at a Baskin Robbins.

If you have spent any time in Hawaii, you know, it is as far away from the racism of the Old South or any other bastion of bad race relations as is Mars. White people are openly referred to as ha-oles (sounds like howlee). But being interracial in 1978 Hawaii, and a member of the elite, can hardly be described as being "down for the struggle."

Chocolate mint, or chip?

Now, before ending, here is an irony: Obama has more in common with George Zimmerman than Trayvon Martin. Both Zimmerman and Obama, have or had one white parent.

Mr. President in 1978 I was a high school student in Chicago. It was my junior year. You were in Hawaii during that time with the Chum gang. It was more likely for me at the time to be shot but I had the sense enough to stay away from high crime area. I also remember that year spending a tremendous amount of study time in a Carter G. Woodson library on 95th and Halsted as well as playing football. During that time I knew where the high crime areas were and avoided them like the plague.

Not 35yrs ago fool he was just like you today and ever since you came into a fortune by stealing it..Stealing the election at least the second time..you are stealing our money and taking trips and giving amounts like 90 billion to your home land.Then there is all the money you give to the terrorist that is stealing fool so yes you are like the thug that was shot for beating a man..

By the way talk is if another kids black or white tries what Travon did to George Zimmerman there will be lots more dead thugs, people are not taking it any more..When all decent people own and learn to use a gun then we might take our country back from the thugs that are beating and raping our people..
