Albany 'Justice for Trayvon' attendees call for discussions about race
The Record ^ | July 21, 2013 | Charles Sweeney

Posted on 07/22/2013 5:31:39 AM PDT by kevcol



The Albany protest, staged outside the Federal Courthouse on Broadway, drew some 200 people, many of whom carried signs and chanted the slogan ‘no justice no peace.’....
.
.
Zimmerman was acquitted of murder and manslaughter by a Florida jury, largely due to the circumstances under which prosecutors were bound by Florida’s controversial ‘stand your ground’ laws, which sanction and expand the use of deadly force in cases of so-called self-defense.

Martin had been walking along a street in Sanford, Florida; in an area patrolled by neighborhood volunteer Zimmerman.

The two became engaged in confrontation, the details of which remain somewhat unclear, but which ended with Zimmerman fatally shooting Martin in the chest.

"so called" self defense? SYG? details unclear? even at this point with the prosecution/LSM admitting certain things? Unbelievably ignorant reporting from Mr. Sweeney here re: the facts of the Zimmerman trial. He obviously didn't watch a minute of it and instead relied on LSM narratives.

I wonder if a single one of the protesters pictured would not call the police if they saw a Trayvon loitering in their neighborhood. F'in phonies.

Sadly, the left doesn’t want “discussions” about race. They want to lecture everyone one regarding their opinion on race relations with no rebuttal.

B.S. they will continue to say the details are unclear until they get the answer they want.

I can’t stop laughing over the idiot holding the GUN CONTROL SAVES LIVES sign.
I’d like to ask him, “Have you ever heard of the American cities of Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, Washington or New Orleans, among too many others?”
Here is the evidence of how well “strict GUN control” works in the real world.

Yes, that stupid sign jumped out at me as well. Obviously held by a person whose agenda trumps the facts.

How about a discussion into the facts of the case and especially into the REAL Trayvon instead of the caricature the MSM has made up and foisted on the ill-informed dopes that make up these faux justice demonstrations.

My FRiend, the main stream narrative of how the Travon Martin George Zimmerman incident went down has been so ingrained in what passes for the minds of people like those in the picture that even if Almighty God came down from Heaven and laid out exactly it happened from start to finish, they still would not believe it.

These are nothing but self loathing, self hating, filled with White guilt White Liberals.

Would any of them defend a homeless Black man that was beaten by the son of a Sanford police officer and insist that the assailant be charges as George Zimmerman did? No. Would any of them take the time to mentor a Black child as George Zimmerman did? No. Unless it was a repairman/woman or serviceman/woman, would any of them allow a Black individual inside their homes? No.

I happen to believe that George Zimmerman was and still is a decent honest man who was only trying to help those in his community. Which is much more than I can say for those, to use the term very, very loosely, people in the picture.

By ‘discussion about race’ they mean that Whitey has to declare his guilt, beg forgiveness and grovel.

Not only that, but they would attempt to have God arrested and charged with a hate crime. They would probably want to crucify Him again.

Ah... but that’s exactly what this whole “anti-white” sentiment is about.

They don’t really hate based on skin color. “Whiteness” is just a proxy for “Western/Christian Civilization”.

They HATE GOD’S LAWS, because they want to be their own god (see Genesis 3), and they hate our culture that is based on God’s Laws.

Short discussion about race: How about marrying and creating stable families before pumping out kids? How about behaving, and raising your kids to behave, like civilized human beings? How about rejecting the rap thug culture Satan’s minions are immersing you in? How about valuing education and honest effort? How about making “acting white” a goal rather than a disparagement?

If those things became common, make no mistake, whitey would cheer and support you!

We've spent the last 40 years (at least) yappin' about "race".

It has accomplished nothing good.

How 'bout we quit flappin' our gums about "race"? Let's disband the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People AND the National Association for the Advancement of White People. How about we disband the United Negro College Fund AND the United Caucasian College Fund? How about we abolish the Congressional Black Caucus AND the Congressional White Caucus? Let's get a little more diversity in the Black Entertainment Television channel AND the White Entertainment Television channel.

Hmmm?

Let's quit the worthless babble about race, let's quit pretending that skin color actually means something. Let's instead get on about the business of making a living, loving our families, caring for our neighbors, and making the world a better place with our own effort ... not with "somebody else's money".

How about it? Jesse? Al? Barry? Eric? You with me?

There were to be 100 cities ablaze with righteous indignation that Treyvon had been denied justice.

How many cities were there and how big were the crowds?

I have seen this "crowd" of 200? Another crowd in Houston, reporting a crowd of 400?

I'm glad these calls for "justice" were a bust.

Have any other cities met with expectations of thousands?

Will this humble Sharpton, Jackson, Obama, Holder and other race baiters?

Not likely....either they will double down on lack of "justice" for Trayvon or they will find another example of Whitey, once again, beating the black community down.

Sucks to be you, race baiters. Its the race baiters who hold the so-called "Black Man" down.

Race baiters = racists.

They are "white blacks", not blacks per say. More like window dressing for this crowd.

And, while we're about it: where are all the "white hispanics" protesting?

Here is a great “discussion of race”.

1) Obey the law.
2) If you attempt to carjack, rape, home invade, burglarize or rob, physically assault, threaten or menace, you can get killed, legally, so don’t do this.
3) If members of your race do this, it is and should be no more tolerable or excusable than if members of any other race do this.
4) The police and the courts will put you in prison if you break the law. Your fellow citizens can kill you, legally, if you break the law. So act accordingly.

"Impossible!!!! Liberals claim guns kill people,"

Idiot and agenda-driven "journalists" are killing the once true, sound profession of journalism - the decline of which started a long time ago and continues to this day.

They are now bleeding out news sources that are still left. I guess we have to thank them for that.

Citizen journalism is one of the resorts that is growing; MSM is dying a much needed, albeit to me a much too slow, death.
