Trayvon Martin case: 'Blacks are under attack,' says Jesse Jackson
Los Angeles Times ^ | March 23, 2012) | Rene Lynch

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?

Jessie also said:

‘’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.’’

If blacks are under attack it is because of their own doing.

Its just you and I.

If Zimmerman were Japanese , the Soros owned Media would have reported his being a white, born again ,Christian, wearing a Sarah Plain T Shirt.

Free Republic and Brietbart ruined their attempt by releasing the guys photo.

I wish someone with more skill than I have would start a thread or a lilst of links of black on white attacks that were ignored by Obama, Jesse and Rev Al. Let’s see how many times they chastized the black perps and called for justice.

US prisons are overflowing with Blacks that have been convicted of killing other Blacks.

The only concern Black leaders express about them - is getting them ballots.

Actually it is whites that are under attack.

Race baiters led by the POTUS, demands of “justice” on the streets, Black Panther wanted posters...

Looks like Zimmerman will be needing to flee the US in order to seek political asylum.

First they came for Zimmerman...

All interracial crime statistics I have seen say that whites are under attack. As far as assaualt rape and murder it is blacks attacking whites and whites attacking blacks very rarely. Do a google search for “the color of crime”

You can see the PDF etc etc..... Essence is that>>>>>>

Of violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent. While blacks are only 12% of the population so that interracial crime propensity is even more magnified

There are two/three this week that I read about.

An 85 year old white woman was raped and killed and her 90 year old husband was shot in the face and in critical condition by a black 20 year old thug named Tyrone. And a white boy was set on fire by two black thugs on Tuesday.

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??

.

There’s a lot more here than a home invasion and robbery.

WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??

90 year old husband’s 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?

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.

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.

Love it when great minds think alike...others too are saying this is the plan in one form or another it all says the same thing....the Obama machine and Dnc have set this in motion....and the media will pimp it for them.

Also keep watching as they spin out the religious aspect...as we've already had a taste of. Obama can't win on the economy or anything else for that matter....but he has a nack for touching the "emotional" buttons on people which race and religion will be front and center...or at least the diversion....not to mention war.

The question is at what point will our guys stop taking Obamas bait and focus on his failures...or are they saving the heavy hitting til the election?

I read in one or two of the articles this guy being a “young boy”...or heard it on the radio. I remember this because it infiriated me they were depicting him so, as if Zimmerman was picking on some kid.

When actually the guy was 6’2 and bigger than Zimmerman

BY the way some news about Zimmermans background:

In 2008, Zimmerman attended a four-month law-enforcement program given by the sheriff’s office, Kim Cannaday, spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office, told the Sentinel. .....In his application for the course, Zimmerman wrote: .....“I hold law enforcement officers in the highest regard and I hope to one day become one.”....He enrolled in Seminole State College with the goal of becoming a cop in 2009 and was working toward an associate degree....... Zimmerman last week was dropped by the school which said it acted because of safety issues for Zimmerman and other students.

Zimmermans father,Robert is a Retired Magistrate Judge....who sent a letter to the Sentinel stating...”...The portrayal of George Zimmerman in the media, as well as the series of events that led to the tragic shooting, are false and extremely misleading,” ...... “Unfortunately, some individuals and organizations have used this tragedy to further their own causes and agendas.”

“George is a Spanish-speaking minority with many black family members and friends,” the elder Zimmerman said. “He would be the last to discriminate for any reason whatsoever.”

‘Stand your ground ‘...says you can shoot (or otherwise use deadly force with a bat, a knife, a fist) if you feel threatened with death or great bodily harm. You have no obligation to back off or retreat to safety, even if you can.

Unlike those English-speaking majorities without “many” black family members and friends, who are much more likely to “discriminate”.

Is that it?

Well yes, that’s probably it in some cases...but people have the right to select their friends and aquaintances...and there are culture differences among the races no matter where they were raised. And I am one who believes these distinctions are perfectly acceptable to each their own.....

But the context his father was speaking of, and important to understand that, is the fact there are those attempting to create a race issue where there is none...and that his son is not a racist individual nor the tendacy to be so. I believe him.

The media need to gin black anger—it’s an election year.

Remember the Rodney King affair—March 1991, the media played those tapes over and over again, perfect fuel for black rage. Now I realize why they played those tapes over and over—it was designed to get the blacks in a rage so that they would go out and vote in very large numbers. The Rodney King tapes were played over a period of months so that blacks would not forget.

In the 2000 election, the black outrage was focused on the false story about the burning of black churches. The dems also brought up the Byrd dragging death, connecting it to George W. Bush because Bush did not pass a hate crime law.

Television is weapon in the hands of leftist swine.
