Posted on 09/01/2013 5:54:30 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
An armed neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman, was recently acquitted of the murder of an unarmed teenager, Trayvon Martin. The Zimmerman-Martin case has been followed closely by millions around the world, including people in Africa. The case captured global attention because it combines an intriguing narrative of murder, economic disparities, stereotyping, gun culture, injustice, law and race in United State of America (USA). It has continued to spark protests, essays, editorials and conversations centered on African-Americans in the American justice system. The African media has not paid adequate attention to the case. Although this case took place in the USA, at the heart of the case is a murdered young descendant of the African continent.
In February of 2012, an unarmed African-American teenager, Martin went to the store. On his way home he was followed by Zimmerman, an armed overzealous White Hispanic volunteer neighborhood watch person.
Through records from the 911 calls and witness accounts, we can begin to piece together some of the events of the night. Zimmerman followed Martin because he felt that the boy appeared suspicious but was told not to pursue him. According to the 911 records, Zimmerman explained to the dispatcher that:
This guy looks like hes up to no good or hes on drugs or something, Zimmerman told the dispatcher. Its raining, and hes just walking around looking about. The man tried to explain where he was. Now hes coming towards me. Hes got his hand in his waistband. And hes a black male Somethings wrong with him. Yup, hes coming to check me out. Hes got something in his hands. I dont know what his deal is These assholes, they always get away. MotherJones.com
A fight occurred between Zimmerman and Martin which resulted in Zimmerman shooting Martin. He claimed he shot Martin in self-defense. A year later, a jury consisting of five White women and one Black Hispanic woman voted unanimously that Zimmerman acted in self-defense and that he was justified in using deadly force against Martin.
AFRICAS RESPONSE TO THE CASE:
African reaction to the Martin case in the media and press has been largely sparse. This is surprising in light of the cases connection to the continent. So far, there have been some commentaries on social media and a handful of articles weighing in on the case. Generally, little attention has been paid to the case.
Little has been written about the death of Martin and its direct connection to the continent. Africans have expressed little solidarity with the African-American community in this case: the African Union has not issued any statements criticizing the treatment of African descendants in the US justice system. Few African newspaper editors have dedicated space for this case and there have been no protests in front of any of the 30-plus American embassies in Africa. However, the fate of the descendants of involuntary African migrants is connected to Africa in fundamental ways. These connections and their significance need to be highlighted.
THE POLITICS OF LOCATION AND LENSES
The Trayvon Martin case was tragic for all Americans and also tragic for Africans. When such incidents occur, it is important that Africans voices are heard and connected to the African-American community. Africans should care about the Trayvon Martin case because the fate of African-Americans is the story of African descendants. Both communities have common roots and can learn from each others experiences. African immigrants in America in particular should pay greater attention to the casethey share common experiences. Trayvon, after all, could have been any one of the Black African males living in or visiting the US.
There are clear reasons why African-Americans have been vested in this case: they were seeking justice. It may be less apparent for some why Africans should care. Even though the plight of African-Americans is often seen as a domestic issue, issues concerning the involuntary migrants that make up the African Diaspora should concern Africans on and off the continent. The lens used to view African-Americans is the same lens used to view all African people.
When Zimmerman saw Martin, he was looking at him through a socially constructed lens of color and race. Africans and their descendants typically have darker skin tones which have been used as a social determinant of status. In places where Africa and Europe interacted, lasting racial hierarchies developed that placed darker skinned people at the bottom. Color became the foundation for all interactions with people, Black or White. In Africa, this often takes the form of Black Africans awarding White Bwanas with privileges not awarded to the majority of their citizens. At times, it manifests through treating members of a darker neighboring ethnic group with suspicion. These dynamics are also the case in America and what guided Zimmerman when deciding on how to treat Martin with suspicion or trust.
White males are seen as individuals that possess emotion and intelligence. Historically, their aggression has often been presented and seen as justified because they are deemed to be protecting order, property or self. Black males on the other hand are often presented and seen as a danger to property, order, and other individualsthe exact opposite. As such, their aggressionreal or perceivedis seen as threatening. They become an archetype that is reduced to color and all its associationsstripped of emotion, intelligence, and individuality. As a result, aggression against Black males is often rationalized as necessary to keep order, protect property, and preserve life.
When Zimmerman was confronted with a Black male, the lens he drew on first was based on color. This same logic and lens was used in other cases. Last year when John Spooner, a White male, shot a 13 year old African-American male, he said it was because he believed the boy burglarized his house two days earlier. In another case, 17 year old Jordan Davis was shot by Michael Dunn in a car parking lot because he thought he saw a gun. Dunn later appealed to racial stereotypes in court by making reference to hearing loud thug music and threats. Although Zimmerman was acquitted, Spooner was charged and Dunn is still waiting trial, the system enabled all of them.
When a society is structured to view a group with suspicion, and the legal question centers only on whether there reasonable suspicion and fear, for Black males the answer is inevitably yes. State institutions therefore support these sentiments and uphold this lens through the passage of laws such as stand-your-ground. Such laws are based on suspicion, threat and the assumption of the guilt of certain racesthey allow injustice. Black males from the continent throughout the Americas are viewed and judged through a lens that automatically links them to fear and suspicion: the threatening Black male can be African, American or Caribbean.
COMMON ROOTS, COMMON ROUTES
Black males on the continent and in the Diaspora have historically been treated similarly. In the pre-colonial era, African males were subject to kidnappings and enslavement. This was followed by the colonial period where they were subject to beatings, maiming, and extrajudicial crimes at the hands of the colonial institutions, colonial administrators and vigilantes within the colonial system. The colonial governments were often administered by men that struggled to keep colonies intact and resorted to corporal punishment with little to no penalty for their actions. Their actions were seen as necessary for keeping order and the status quo; the colonial system would not function without them. Whether abroad or in Africa, Africans were linked by color to the continent and received the same treatment. They were simply Africans in America and only became Americans after a protracted civil-rights struggle.
Africans were enslaved in Africa, taken to the Americas, emancipated and then forced to live under American segregation until the 1960s. During these periods, they were subject to extrajudicial crimes at the hands of white supremacist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan, lynch mobs and the police. Here too they were met with suspicion by those trying to keep the status quo. Institutions upheld this negative view and did not favor them. As such, Black males both in Africa and in the US were never really ever safe from extrajudicial crimes. This treatment of African males began on the continent and continued across the seas under differing political systems with similar goalsto keep the property of the economic majority and larger society safe from them. Whether in a colony, settler territory or democracy, the Black African male has always been met with suspicion.
Race still matters. Whether a country claims to be post-colonial, post-apartheid, post-Jim Crow or post-racial, race is still very much a factor for Africans and their descendants. Inequalities in the social, economic and judicial settings still occur due to race. The extrajudicial killing of Black males continues in post-apartheid South Africa in dynamic ways. At times, it is in gated communities in cases similar the Zimmerman case. Other times, it is through, European or American institutions who employ Black males to carry out work resulting in Black on Black male crimes. The Marikana mine shootings by Black Africans are one such example that shows that the perpetrators dont have to be White. Its really about the value society places on the Black Body in countries such as South Africa under the guise of protecting private property and business interests. In Botswana, it has manifested in the institutionalization of the killing of Black men through controversial laws calling for shoot-to-kill policies for suspected poachers. The poachers risk death for doing the on the ground work in a global industry involving foreign business interests. It raises questions about whether it is okay to defend tourism and environmental policies that result in the loss of human lives.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR THE AFRICAN DIASPORA IN AMERICA?
Voluntary African immigrants to the USA typically do not see the countrys race relations with the same lens as Americans. Many emigrated from countries where they faced little race-based discrimination because they were part of the economic or ethnic majoritythey enter the country unburdened by its history of racial tension and its effects on individuals. Often they express surprise at seeing Americans view the world though their racial filter.
Africans tend to have different relationships with White America than African-Americans due to their exoticness. They are often faced with less suspicion and mistrust once it is discovered that they are Africans, and generally tend to get along with the majority population in the work place or in schools. In some cases, Africans are told that they are different from African-Americans for one reason or another. This sometimes drives a wedge between the two communities. As a result, some Africans try to disassociate themselves with things that are stereotypically African-American so that they are not met with the same suspicion. They encourage their kids not to dress a certain way, speak a certain way, listen to certain songs, or behave a certain way in hope that they or their kids can be safeso that they are not the next Trayvon Martin. However, the source of discrimination stems from their skin tone a factor they cannot escape.
Africans experience prejudices in the USA. Despite taking efforts to not be met with suspicion, they know that skin color is the primary source of much of their discrimination. They are profiled just as much as African-Americans and subject to the same level of discrimination in public institutions. For all intents and purposes, they are in the same boat as African-Americans because of their color. Albeit being held with less suspicion, they are all initially treated with some form of suspicion and similar fate. Amadou Diallo, an immigrant from Guinea, was shot 41 times by the police at his home, because he reached for his wallet. The White officers thought he was reaching for a gun. In most situations, when profiling based on color, there is little time for geographical distinctions. Trayvon could have been any of the Black male Caribbean or African Diasporas living in America.
As people that have experienced injustice, Africans should be able to easily empathize with any community facing injustice. As Martin Luther King Jr. noted, We are bound by an inescapable garment of mutuality, whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. If one persons rights are violated, then anyones could be violated. This is why Americans of all races, background and persuasions are standing with the African-American community and speaking against the injustice that occurred through the Trayvon Martin case. Africans publically standing in solidarity with African-Americans ensures that everyones basic human rights are protected and respected.
The African community should be more proactive about standing in solidarity with African-Americans and any other minority group at risk of injustice. Our media and press should weigh inwhether they agree with the verdict or not. We cannot expect the African-American community to stand alone when it is faced with potential injustice. Africans in America and in the Diaspora should not miss out on an opportunity to be heard and included in dialogue that is related to the protection of human rights.

From my limited experience, African immigrants have a fair amount of disdain for most African Americans (of the Trayvon variety) for their lack of industriousness.
Tribal sympathy, tribal reasoning. I didn’t see anything about “no limit nigga” postings, fighting, school suspension, drugs, or theft in Martin’s history. No consideration of what he might have been like. Just blame it on YT, or in George’s case, close enough.
White Hispanic .
Real Africans think African Americans are pathetic.
There are no benefits in Africa.If you’re lucky enough to have a job, you work. But nobody goes on ‘benefit’.
Most Africans think that if you can’t make it in the US, you can’t make it anywhere.
The comments of Zimmerman and the 911 dispatcher are edited for effect .... similar to what NBC did.
Claiming as FACT that Zimmerman saw Trayvon through a lens of racism discredits the entire article. Another waste of my time.
George Zimmermans Black Ancestry is Revealed
George Zimmerman: the black, Hispanic, Peruvian, kind-hearted non-white, not-racist poster boy
George Zimmerman Has Black Roots
Sitinga is a moron. Case closed.
“The case captured global attention because it combines an intriguing narrative of murder, economic disparities, stereotyping, gun culture, injustice, law and race in United State of America (USA).”
I couldn’t get past line two, the bullshit flowing out my monitor completely swept over me.
“...involuntary African migrants...
My, how very PC!
This is as far as I got:
“African reaction to the Martin case in the media and press has been largely sparse. This is surprising in light of the cases connection to the continent.”
Trayvon Martin’s fate is no more relevant to any goings on in any of the 50+ nations in Africa than George Zimmerman’s legal troubles would be relevant in any of the many countries making up Latin America.
African reaction to the Martin case in the media and press has been largely sparse.
Probably because most Africans are a lot smarter than the author of this pukefest , and the blacks of America.
Trayvon was a thug in training that got what he asked for.
Thousands of African-Americans are being killed almost daily by other African-Americans and no one seems to care much, but let one White Hispanic with black blood kill in order to save his own life and all of a sudden the racist blacks are having a conniption fit.
People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
If America had no blacks we would be among the safest non-criminal nations in the world.
Somebody is spending a lot of money to get the colored populations around the world upset and into a race war with the white folks.
Forgive me for being do bold as to suspect that it has something to do with the colored half breed we have living at 1600. You know the one who thinks we should bow and scrape for his every desire.
Why would anyone want an all out shooting war amongst their own people? I wonder if it might have anything to do with DHS buying up a bunch of ammunition.
Perhaps they are planning on doing some gun walking into Atlanta, DC, Baltimore, Chicago, Des Moines, NOLA, and Philly. Maybe they might just arm the gangs who they feel they aren’t being respected properly.
Aim for the suits who cause the mess not the uniforms trying to contain it.
It’s starting to smell like a feedlot, isn’t it? The media needs to clean up their act.
I agree - most Africans I meet here are students or professionals, are focused on learning or getting ahead, and for the most part have little concern or respect for the "African American experience."
It’s easy to piss off a tiger.
It’s also easy to make a plan to ride a pissed off tiger.
It’s a lot harder to make the plan work according to the plan.
I have friends from Nigeria, and they agree that Zimmerman was defending himself and that Trayvon was a punk.
Sounds like the author is pissed off the Africans haven’t paid what s/he feels is proper attention to this racism. So s/he is gonna try and stir up some.
Once saw an article in a British magazine discussing the differences you note. Long story short and trying to be tactful, the article boiled down to this: when the slavers hunted for blacks to send to the new world, the brightest and/or the quickest blacks were *not* those that were caught and put on the slave ships.
I couldn’t get past Sitinga Kachipande.
never mind them having 800 million people in huts and shacks and losing what little GDP growth they have to malaria lets talk about Trayvon.
The author is so far beyond idiot, I won’t bother typing further.
Ain’t no beauty queens in this locality.
IIRC, about the time Operations Fast and Furious and Castaway wormed their way into the news here, there was a brief mention of another operation which was arming gangs in Illinois by way of Indiana.
I have long maintained that the ammo being bought isn't all bought up by either the military, DHS, or Conservatives, and suspect the .40 ammo will be lost in shipment or storage and end up in criminal hands. East bloc ammo, too. (SKS and AK rifles are still cheaper than ARs.)
Obama's private army and all that, using the community organizer's old networks to distribute supplies.
It is a Communist racist radical's wet dream...
A year later, a jury consisting of five White women and one Black Hispanic woman voted unanimously that Zimmerman acted in self-defense "
Zimmerman was one half Hispanic, and one eighth Black (his great grandfather was Black). I don't know the racial make up of the "Black Hispanic" juror, but presumably she had some Black ancestry, too. The difference between the two? - Skin color.
Wouldn't it be great if we could live in a country where our children would be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin? I wonder what the content of Trayvon Martin's character was, and why wasn't it mentioned in the article?
I knew a large Ethiopian family for decades they came here in about 1979 worked their buts off hate American Blacks called them the n word lazy ass losers and such
African immigrants arriving in the US look at the culture and behavior of slave-descended black Americans, and want nothing to do with it or them. They see the amoral self-destruction, the violence, gangs, and drugs, illegitimacy and abortion. And the immigrants reject all of it.
And yet, in demographics these two groups are lumped together by the color of their skin. How unfair to immigrants.
The narrative of the incident is a blatant lie, again.
A dubious source to cite unless it serves one's preconceived notion or buttresses one's slanted view.
No, no, no, no. There is no societal structure to view black men as suspicious. Individual people, whites, Asians, Hispanics, and even blacks, view suspicious black men as potentially dangerous because all criminal statistics, whether those statistics originate in America, Europe, the Caribbean, or Africa show that black men are the most likely to rob or attack others.
The American and European societal structure actually teaches the exact opposite. Schools, entertainment, and news media teach that all races are the same with regard to likelihood to commit crime. Despite these obvious lies, people naturally are more suspicious of those who warrant suspicion. If black people want to change that suspicion then the crime that draws that suspicion must be eradicated. Until then, people will naturally be suspicious.
But, let's be honest, black crime will not recede. If anything, it will worsen.
Yes, indeed! It is all about the Tribe. Tribal justice is entirely based on Us vs. Them. It has nothing to do with any concept of universal right and wrong. If a member of my tribe has been hurt by a member of your tribe then your tribe must be forced to pay, regardless of the circumstances or who was aggressing or how aggressive.
You recall correctly.
At the same time, there were reports of another Fast & Furious-type operation that was arming the Zetas via Honduras -- being run thru the State Department.
For an administration committed to "gun control", they sure spread the guns around.
Africans can’t identify with Martin because they don’t know what a polar bear.
When ya get time .....
Truth be told ....:o)
Very true. I have talked to them. They also are not happy about illegal immigration to America when they had to do it the hard way.
Believe me, and the media never tells you this, but legal hispanics feel the same way.
is Sitinga an American citizen?
Most black Africans I have met (been to several countries in Africa)speak very “proper” English, some better than I do. It seems that many of our African-Americans speak a ghetto slang that is unintelligible. This has been passed down from generation to generation. I have been told some African-Americans don’t want to learn proper English because it would make them appear like a wanna-be white person. My point here is that the inability to speak proper English and dress appropriately for job interviews is the biggest hindrance for blacks in this country to succeed and advance economically. Why don’t Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson focus on this instead of blaming the white man for all their problems.
I believe most Africans are smarter than the Negroes we have here.
American Negroes have lived off the Government so long their brains have turned to mush.
If it becomes an actual black on white revenge scuffle, I think the probability is quite good of older, experienced veterans forming close knit teams, not quite what we would call a militia, to take care of areas the uniformed LEO’s are reluctant to clean up.
This isn’t what MLK had in mind, but if it is what Sharpton, Jackson and Obama want then bring it on.
...just another lying Kenyan
“Sitinga Kachipande is a scholar in Pan African Studies and blogger. She is currently a Research and Communication intern at Trans Africa.”
Pan-Africanism is an ideology and movement that encourages the solidarity of Africans worldwide.It is based on the belief that unity is vital to economic, social, and political progress and aims to unify and uplift people of African descent.
The ideology asserts that the fates of all African peoples and countries are intertwined. At its core Pan-Africanism is a belief that African peoples, both on the continent and in the Diaspora, share not merely a common history, but a common destiny
TransAfrica (formerly TransAfrica Forum) is an advocacy organization in Washington, D.C. that seeks to influence the foreign policy of the United States concerning African and Caribbean countries and all African diaspora groups.
Maybe a degree in a do nothing field of studies, now with an internship at an advocacy group pushing the U.S. government for money to for the “victim” group.
What a load of CRAP; her and Transafrica.
Until the truth get out this is the kind of stuff that’s going to continue
The purpose of this review is to urge FR’s copy and distribute it to conservative leadership in the remnants of the Republican party as well as to your favorite talk show host and force discussion .
If racial unrest follows Zimmerman jury decision, blame it on Activist Obama
This is reference to an editorial run in Canada Free Press. The Canadians got it right.! Too bad half of the so called conservatives talk show hosts Ive been listening to cant seem to be willing to connect the dots to what a heavy hand his imperious highness played in this example of socialist justice meted out to serve the policies of the state . Turning this into a show trial replete with wall to wall tv coverage.. Taking some poor guy of mixed race including black doing his job and painting a target on his back to fullfill a socialist agenda.
:The Dual Purposes for the “Targeting” of George Zimmerman
The truth and dual purpose behind the Zimmerman persecution .. The regime and the media set the premise for the trial narrative and their presentations ignoring the setting where the incident took place..An area having a Neighborhood Watch and the person working security just doing his job. Why was this episode politicized ?...The first was to gin up the base for purposes explained herein but there was another second agenda..
If some of those so called conservative talk show hosts had interviewed guests who run such watches and had the courage to fight PC and defend Zimmerman they would have exposed the regime and the media for the frauds they are. The few who are still “milking this” by accepting black callers.
Allowing those callers to mis-state the facts such as as Martin was “stalked” or Martin was “stopped” and “questioned” when there was no legal right to do so, or killed in cold blood as these assertions developed If any of the of the perpetrators of these racial crimes were asked they would claim they were true. Instead these hosts fail to cite the simple facts outlined and documented here, allow the callers miss-conceptions go unchallanged, or cite examples of policy or corruption. Let alone ask them what has Obama done for you? Or even warn them as unfortunately being used and deliberately mis-informed..
Particularly a gated neighborhood watch.When you enter one of these and start wandering around no matter if you are white, blue, red, green, or black. You can be asked your purpose for being there. You are on private property. And yes those on patrol can and do leave their vehicle and follow on foot if they lose sight of the person theyre observing..Thats the Watch Captains who is really a security guards job.http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/3054721/posts
Its the second time the President of the United States has interjected himself into a confrontation between those in authority on legal grounds reasonably questioned and released someone involved in a curious activity in a patrolled area. Could this attitude be based from the idealized communist concept that there is no such thing as private property because the state (collective) owns the land ? http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3042477/posts and is the second purpose of selecting this episode to paint a target on Zimmerman’s back http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3054815/posts
In both cases those representing authority were reported as white . In the second case the person working security was attacked on private rights of way while on foot who discontinued an observation and was returing to his vehicle after being suggested by the police to do so. Legally he could have approached Saint Trayvon but didnt..The hooded tall figure was allowed to continue on his way.unimpeded. But didnt. That figure turned out to be a Martin Trayvon who doubled back and attacked the neighborhood watch worker as he was returing to his vehicle. Knocked him to the ground and began beating him severly. Saint Trayvon, the attacker, was subsequently killed in a struggle over the Neighborhood Watchmans legal pistol.
In the second case both were dark skined.
The facts of this case are still being shamefully being concealed by the media to the extent they are advancing and are complicit in permitting a putrid injstice of the worst order,organized and instituted by our governent, to be committed .While denied. It began as a miscalculation when a surname of a Jewish origin shot up and lighted the heavens like a star shell in the darkest of nights. It would have been difused if the media used pictures of both side by side because they look like cousins. And the area where this occured of paycheck to paycheck struggling homeowners of all races trying to protect themselves had been reported and not some ritzy all white enclave.they portrayed..Worse yet the media is still pilling it on with ABC editing a a black jury members (remember when they were all white)t remarks to make it sound like she accused Zimmerman of murder .
The result as we have seen is that another marxist axiom (division) has been implemented which has resulted with gangs of black youths murdering happless whites and hispanics who happen into areas usually where a black population is the majority. Those media outlets who by their delberate misuse of the instrument of the 1st amendment are just as complicit in those deaths as the regime is. Other forms of media particularly the black media had the duty but not the obligation to verify and report factually. But instead quoted the reports from various mainlining socialist media sources: Some examples here all of which serve the first purpose of selecting Zimmerman as the target. What is the result ? Black youths believing they would get top level peer approval began attacking happless white and hispanics which may have wandered into their area which resulted in murders or serious injury and some cases stalked their white victims. In reality those victims are martyrs to the cause of American socialism., and the political opposition says nothing..

The Secondary Purpose
Using propaganda from the party that hypenated itself from God at their 2012 convention into demo-coms, and believe that all groups should be hyphenated , Afro-American, Hispanic-American, etc..Decided Zimmerman to be the egg that is to be broken,. sacrificed, so that we have an omlet..
Just like Stalin did to the Ukrainian land owners known as Kulacks whom he executed, (and used that egg example) in a soclal engineering plan to organize collectives during a Russian drought..Because as we have learned there seems to be the intention to use a collective data base to create collectives.where a utopia of uniforimity of conformity exists. As was done in Detroit, and Oakland California.only this time a poor whitey or blacky wont be able to move. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3053314/posts.
Just as with the energy plan where the cost of fuel used for energy and transportation and that includes raising the price of transporting gas and oil by rail, that favors a key contributer (Buffett) while the regime has been recently ridiculing the impact the completion of a pipeline, has skyrocketed those costs. Placing many on fixed or limited incomes dependent on government handouts. Resulting from this regimes socialist policies which go blameless. Now call for the sacrifice of Zimmerman who must die for another communist plan.. We all move together in centers designed and approved by comrades running the collective who (just like Obamacare arent in it) wont ever live there.
What could the first purpose be ?
What better way to cover up Bengahzi, Fast and furious, IRS, Wind and Solar panel gate, NSA spying on US, Over-riding the constittution? Dont look into who accompaines Obama on his many trips around the world at taxpayer expence ? Were they the heavy hitters or their friends holding the presidents hand isn’t that pay back at US taxpayer expence?. Isnt that an impeachable offense ??
Now if somebody even suggests impeachment. Get to your black base voters, whom you’ve done nothing for,.all worked up. Pick on some security guard who’s doing his job. Accuse him of being racist ,even though he is part black..But his last name sounds jewish.Whos doing surveilance in an mixed race area of modest means a where theres been robberies and burgalries by young blacks. Now call that surveilance stalking, the area hes patrolling owned by rich whities,and the guard of course he’s white.That person hes watching a 10 year old black kid and a saint ,not six foot two 165 pound 16 year old, who gets killed fighting over a gun. . Now paint a target on the security guards back .Aint that neat ? What better way to discourage any investigation into malfeasance and corruption by organizing the base for riots in the streets ? Think it’s too far fetched ? Think it’s not working ? Look again http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3051558/posts
To date the political opposition known as Republican has yet to mention or comment on this example of how this regime operates. Time to ask them why ?
The republican leadership was given as they have in the past,while running the 2012 campaigns for Senate, House, and President an opportunity to spell out what was in Obamacare but didnt http://www.theusmat.com/ or even mention Democrats had refused any reference to God in the Democratic at their 2012 convention . A new attack furthur hyphenating black from hispanic from white Americans, which included Jews when the Demo-Coms created a unconsionable use of the security guard incident to furthur their socialist agenda. That has resulted in martyrs because of its inflamatory assertions. Which the political opposition ignores while claiming to search for demographics in other directions.

Time to expose citizens to the face the facts that they may believe whatever activity they get involved in is perfectly legitimate and legal. If it suits their purposes this regime and its adhearants will paint a target on their back. Wether it’s a black hispanic who gets turned in a “white hispanic” or union members losing their health care benefits if Obamacare gets funded.
