Outrage is going wrong way
The Covington News ^ | July 27, 2013 | Mychal Massie

Posted on 07/27/2013 11:21:15 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

I heard a defense attorney say that while she believed in the jury process and felt that they had reached the right decision, "George Zimmerman being found not guilty does not mean he is innocent."

The first thing that came to my mind is that every client she has should fire her and no one should employ her services ever again. Imagine, your defense attorney, for whom you have paid handsomely, wins your case and then does an interview where she suggests you were found not guilty but that doesn’t mean you’re innocent.

Granted she wasn’t in any way involved in the George Zimmerman trial, but for her to publicly say something so patently offensive paints a picture of how she feels about her white clients if, in fact, she has any. Which brings me to my point.

If the George Zimmerman trial has revealed one thing and one thing only, it is that many blacks are still mental and emotional slaves on the plantations of immiseration, victimology, and self-segregation.

They are easily led by emotion, and despite undeniable success in America, many, if not most, would rather focus on a past (i.e., slavery) that no one living today can in any way relate to and a period (i.e., Jim Crow) that Americans of good conscience brought to an end 50 years ago.

Yet there they are protesting mythical and imagined wrongdoings as if white people and the justice system have a secret code that dictates all blacks be treated unfairly. And the media eagerly and strenuously works to inculcate that viewpoint.

A half-Kenyan holds the most powerful office in the world. Blacks are political leaders and elected officials in many of the nation’s cities. There is no shortage of schools headed by blacks. Fortune 500 companies are run by blacks, as are hospitals. You cannot watch a television show without seeing a black actor. From laborer to business owner, blacks are represented.

The cries for revenge and insistence that George Zimmerman’s acquittal for killing Trayvon Martin in self-defense somehow translates into a death threat to all young black men are beyond irrational to me. As I wrote in my syndicated "The Ugly Truth About Trayvon Martin," Martin would be alive today had he not made the decision to attack George Zimmerman.

It is incongruous to me that people choose to exhibit national outrage over one justifiable incident while they ignore atrocities that said outrage would be well spent addressing.

Where is the outrage over approximately 1,500 unborn black children being murdered daily by Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills? Where is the outrage over the single parent homes? Where is the outrage over the black-on-black crime rates? Approximately 8,000 blacks are murdered annually, and other blacks commit 93 percent of these murders. In Chicago alone, more than 200 blacks have been murdered so far this year.

Where is the outrage over that? Where is the outrage of illegal alien Mexicans who are murdering blacks as part of their initiation into violent gangs?

Blacks I’ve observed doing on-air interviews, etc., are upset that George Zimmerman was acquitted. But it is not the George Zimmermans who take a person’s life in self-defense whom they should fear – it is the gang-bangers and hoodlums on the streets who are killing one another with reckless abandon because someone wore the wrong color shirt in their neighborhood.

Blacks need not fear the George Zimmermans who justifiably protect themselves; blacks need to fear having their children playing in front of their residences when a car drives by and sprays bullets.

How in the name of sanity can those who are claiming injustice pursuant to George Zimmerman sit silent about all of the other atrocities that blacks are inflicting upon themselves?

Have inculcated immiseration, victimology, and self-segregation so blinded blacks that they are unable to see the truth? Or is it that they are so given over to antipathy that they refuse to see the truth?

"George Zimmerman being found not guilty does not mean he is innocent."

That statement is absolutely correct, as any trial lawyer worth his snuff will confirm.

In the context of this public debate, however, it is pretty much irrelevant.

And as used by Massie, it is intended to be misleading.

Regards,

My greatest morale boost comes when a man rises above race and sees truth. Thank you Mychal.

Self-inflicted pain hurts the most.

No, in America you ARE innocent until proven guilty.

I am so sick & tired of hearing what a great guy trayvon was.
He was a low life loser with mama & daddy to blame, along with the school system.
He was kicked out of school & mamas house then sent to live with daddy. daddy went out that night with his girlfriend and left the punk alone. What the HELL did he thing the punk was going to do?
mama & daddy should have been charged for neglect.
He was up to something there in Sanford that night. We will never know exactly what as the LSM calls him choir boy.
He was a no good craka hating punk thanks to his upbringing. . . . .

I’ve always hated the term “innocent until proven guilty.”

The word “until” makes it sound like a guilty verdict is a foregone conclusion, like a kangaroo court.

The proper term, which unfortunately no one uses, should be
“innocent UNLESS proven guilty.”

If these stats are correct, in the time between Trayvon Martin's death and George Zimmerman's acquital, the abortionists killed more than 750,000 unborn black children, and blacks murdered more than 10,000 other blacks.

None of the race-baiters seem to care.

Because we got one white guy here (okay, "White Hispanic") who fired a gun in self-defense to stop his head being pounded into the concrete by a delinquent 6-foot-tall black kid.
