Skip to comments.Trayvon Martin case: 'Blacks are under attack,' says Jesse Jackson
Posted on 03/23/2012 8:47:30 PM PDT by Bronzy
Civil rights leader Jesse Jackson said Friday that he's grateful the rest of the country has sat up and taken notice of the tragic slaying of Trayvon Martin. But he can't help but wonder: Why has it taken so long for everyone else to recognize the chronic injustices that African Americans face?

I think this is “bait” for conservatives. There are no doubt valid concerns regarding the incident, but if they are raised by a conservative they will perpetuate the myth that conservatism equates to racism regarding minoitities.I think folks on our side need to stand down on this one as the public perception has been cast...
Dear God, this is becoming a circus. A young boy is dead, and every “civil rights activist” in America seemingly wants to turn him into a symbol for their favorite cause.
I have no doubt that Mr. Zimmerman is about to face the business end of the criminal justice system. Mr. Jackson, Mr. Sharpton, and all of their ilk do not want justice, they want publicity, and that is truly revolting.
And whites are not under attack, Jessie?
White 85 year old partially blind Nancy Strait was robbed, tortured, raped and beaten to death just the other day in Oklahoma by a gang of feral blacks.
Her 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten, his jaw broken, shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.
While the Zimmerman white on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by African Americans in Oklahoma just the other day?
WHY NO MENTION ON THE MSM??
WHY DOES IT TAKE THE BRITS TO BRING THIS NEWS TO US??
Theres a lot more here than a home invasion and robbery.
WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??
90 year old husbands jaw broken and shot in face with BB gun?
85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??
Where is the 24/7 MSM coverage
Where is the outrage?
I’m tired of it ALL!
Notice the same media dubbing Zimmerman as “White Hispanic” never identifies terrorists as “Islamic”?
We the People need a new go-to person to speak for the black community. I’m sick of Jesse and Al. Instead, bring in Allen Wes, Star Parker, Charles Payne or Condi Rice.
Yes. i got tired of Jesse and others race-baiting crap since 1974. Template is the same. Same ole shit different day, new generation of minds to corrupt, and more money in the coffers.
New generation of reporters. And of course like students in any endeavor, they only know how to react and do as their mentors before. Yup for some of us old farts pretty boring.
Wanted Dead or Alive Poster Issued for George Zimmerman by New Black Panther Party
YES....they are under attack...BY BLACKS!!! Look at the statistics of blacks killing blacks. Jesse Jackson has no shame and selective memory loss....
“Race baiters led by the POTUS, demands of justice on the streets, Black Panther wanted posters...”
And in Florida...dontcha know...a swing state. It may backfire.
When was the last time you remember Jesse Jackson issuing a major press “speech” ?
Jackson, Al Charlatan, and the NBP’s have been set into motion by the Obama machine and the DNC. The most pertinent facts of the incident are still unknown-—perfect playing field for them to invent their own “narrative.”
Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are the two biggest misery pimps in U.S. history. They will abuse blacks as readily as they will any other group to enrich themselves and to promote their agenda.
Yes, Jesse you are right, Blacks are under attack, by other blacks, just like the 13 who were shot in Chicago last weekend. and the 10 who were shot the weekend before, and how many were shot the weekend before that??
They’re being denied their inalienable right to attack people of lesser melanin content.
