|Zimmerman's Broken Nose|
People appear to have forgotten that when race first became a factor in this case it was because for six weeks after the shooting, Zimmerman was neither arrested nor charged. The story that a bruised George Zimmerman told about his fight with Trayvon never had anything to do with Florida's so-called Stand Your Ground law when attacked inside his gated community. Zimmerman saw Martin acting suspiciously, called the police, and while waiting for their arrival, confronted him. He was knocked down by a young Negro who was four inches taller than him and considered himself an expert fighter. I'm pretty sure that the vast majority of people had no idea that Martin was sitting on top of Zimmerman, punching him in the face, breaking his nose and banging his head (photo left) into the pavement. In desperation Zimmerman shot the scumbag. ''It was purely a matter of self-defence,'' said Police Chief Bill Lee.
Team Obama sent the FBI to investigate the shooting and they concluded: No racial element, and in fact no crime period. End of story, right? Nope, just the beginning. Obama and Holder say to themselves, ''That's not the narrative we want'' and send several hundred Department of Justice (DOJ) employees on the ''Taxpayer's Dime'' to Sanford. They organized several rallies inviting folks like the legendary deadshits like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and the Black Panthers. Actual DOJ employees during the rallies proclaim ''Zimmerman is a Racial Motivated Murderer!'' Obama states to the media, "If I had a boy...he would look like Trayvon.'' and adds to the racial emotions. Then abuses the power of the Oval Office to fire the Police Chief and the State's Attorneys, not to mention taking the case away from the Sanford police.
A political hack Angela Corey is appointed ''Special Prosecutor''. She circumvents the process, does not go to a Grand Jury, instead just files charges....facts and prior investigations be damned. A trial that should never have happened, goes on. Both sides present their evidence, give closings and the jury gets the case to decide. The jury returns a Not Guilty verdict, end of story right? No, not when you hear the jaw-dropping statement prosecutor Corey in a TV show interview and said, ''Zimmerman is still a murderer!'' Not with all the expectation of a lynching fuelled by Jackson, Sharpton and Team Obama. So we have the riots, the death threats; even to Zimmerman' mother and father. Nothing is too low for these lowlife blacks to say and do when their thirst for blood isn't slaked. Even Holder has the nerve to hint that he may take it to a higher court. This leads most decent Americans to ask, ''Who the hell are the Real Racists?'' It's time for a frank discussion.
|Hack Prosecutor Corey|
Some of these thoughts about America's real ''racial divide'' were brought out by a black journalist, Jason Riley, this week. He mentioned that an candid debate on race and criminality in the US would have to start with fact that blacks commit an astoundingly disproportionate number of crimes. African-Americans (I hate that term--you don't see me going around saying I'm a German-American) constitute about 13% of the population, yet between 1976 and 2006 blacks committed more than half of all the murders the US. The black arrest rate for most offences -- including robbery, aggravated assault and property crimes -- is typically 2-3 times their representation in the population.
The Way I See It.....the homicide rate claiming black victims today is seven times that of whites, and the George Zimmermans of this world are not the reason. About 90% of black murder victims are killed by other blacks. Did the perception of black criminality play a role in Martin's death? We may never know for certain, but we do know that those negative perceptions of young black men are rooted in hard data on who commits crimes. We also know that young black men will not change how they are perceived until they change how they behave. Ditch the Hoody and get a job. Enough said!
