Pastor supporting Trayvon Martin defends church sign calling Zimmerman jury racist
The Birmingham News ^ | July 15, 2013 | Greg Garrison

Posted on 07/15/2013 3:55:31 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

This message was put on the sign at New Era Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, on Sunday, July 14, 2013.

The flip side of the sign refers to a 1983 rape case for which the three black assailants are still serving time in prison.

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama - New Era Baptist Church Pastor Michael R. Jordan has expressed his outrage over the George Zimmerman not guilty verdict with a bold statement on the church sign.

On one side of the sign it says, “George Zimmerman jury supported white racism.”

On the other, he posted a reference to the 1983 Baby Doe's rape case in Birmingham:

"Rape a white woman and you will die in prison," the sign says.

To Jordan, it sums up inequities in the U.S. judicial system.

"I put them up yesterday after church," Jordan said. "I’m crushed by that racist verdict down in Florida. You can kill an African American and you will walk down in Florida."

Hundreds of people marched in Birmingham today to protest the verdict. Martin's parents came to Birmingham to take part in a march May 3, 2012, when Birmingham made Trayvon Martin an honorary citizen.

Jordan said the not guilty verdict for Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who followed Trayvon Martin, 17, as he walked through a gated neighborhood after buying Skittles and tea at a nearby convenience store, was unjust.

"With the evidence, there’s no way they could say it was anything but racism by George Zimmerman," Jordan said.....

Works for me.

Also any other color woman.

>> “With the evidence, there’s no way they could say it was anything but racism by George Zimmerman,”

Does this “pastor” just string words together for effect? Or does he have any clue what words and phrases like “evidence”, “racism”, “no way”, “anything but” actually *mean*?

I bet his sermons have sort of an Alice in Wonderland flavor to them.

Apparently the “Reverend” is unaware the FBI beat the hell outta this case and could find no racism.

Wish I had a link.

I’m still waiting for the outrage from the MSM and the black community regarding the murders of white people by blacks on an almost daily basis.

For instance how about the recent beating death of the Iraq war veteran by 4 black yutes here in Atlanta, who after beating him unconcsious left him in the road where he was run over by a car . . . or the mother who was walking her baby in a stroller in Savannah and some black punk yute demanded money, didn’t get what he wanted so he shot the baby in the face . . . many more stories but they just don’t think it fits their agenda so any news on events such as these are pretty much “crickets”!

Comments?

Those little punks were younger than Trayvon. Why are black “BABIES” KILLING WHITE (REAL) BABIES?

The Skittles Trayvon bought were, most likely, to be used in a drug cocktail called “lean.” It is a mixture of codeine, Skittles and soda pop. He walked a mile in pouring rain to get the Skittles. He had been using “lean” since June 2011, according to his Facebook page. Lean produces similar affects as PCP.

every black who prejudeged this case, and thinks the verdict is wrong, in light of the evidence, witnesses and testimonies, is racist.

rape should be a capital crime.

i also believe lying and framing someone for a capital crime, should be a capital crime, too.

I think the country as a whole is immune to the racist charge anymore. Its been overplayed and over done for years. Problem, I have a feeling that those who are being called racist will also reach a tipping point.

New Era Baptist “Church” fails in its attempt to be taken seriously by reasonable, rational people without a racial axe to grind. It is looking more and more like the Jeremiah Wrights are the rule and not the exception. I hope that I am wrong about this.

Jordan has made news before with his controversial signs. In 2008 he posted a sign saying, “Warning: Crack cocaine is sold on this street,”


He may be right.........................

Thanks. We need to collect data on the way that the rights of white people are being violated. It has become very clear that there are many in positions of power whether in the government or media who think nothing of throwing us to the wolves.

Does he deny Trayvon put the beat down on George Zimmerman? Do these people - supposedly men of God - not know how God feels about those who “sow/spread discord among brethren”? (hint...God HATES it. Proverbs 6:19)

No comment needed. No speculation needed. The MSM, like our president (and all democrats) hate America and want to use special interest groups as a wedge issue to acquire and maintain their own power. The behavior you are decrying is actually what one should expect from such people. Complaining about the MSM's coverage of racial issues is like a 1930's era European complaining that Dr. Goebbels "keeps putting out all this anti-Jewish propaganda".
