As one who fought for civil rights in the late 50s and early 60s, it is disappointing to see the race hustlers out in force – exploiting the acquittal of George Zimmerman for personal gain. After five decades of lobbying for equal rights for all citizens – with a multi-racial family – I find the behavior of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Charles Rangel, Eric Holder and other race hustlers to be totally disgusting, irresponsible, and exploitative.
Little Al and Big Jesse claim Whites hate Blacks and that the White power structure is biased against Blacks. This despite the fact that White America has twice elected a Black President, approved a Black Attorney General and many Black White House associates.
Also, the hard data shows the majority of Blacks who are killed or injured are victimized by other Black criminals. For example, every weekend in Chicago, dozens of Blacks are killed or injured by African-Americans. And over 6000 Blacks are killed by other Blacks in the United States each year.
So why is Al Sharpton – and for that matter the other race hustlers – using the George Zimmerman verdict to enhance their false claim of White racism? Hard statistics tell us Blacks are far more preoccupied with race issues than Whites.
Why are the Black race hustlers giving so much attention to the Zimmerman case – to this multiracial man who killed his attacker in self-defense. And why is the mainstream media giving so much attention to this isolated and weak case – and not to the bigger picture problems facing Black communities around our country?
Obviously, the race hustlers must ferment racial discontent to sustain their seats of power in Black society and in the Democrat Party. And the media cooperates with them – recognizing the audience appeal of a good racial story: “White guy shoots an attractive and innocent Black kid returning home after purchasing skittles and ice tea.”
The media depiction of Trayvon Martin as an innocent kid with skittles and iced tea is highly deceptive. He was expelled from school four times and at the time of the shooting, was a drug user, a fighter, possibly a jewelry thief, and a reverse racist. He lost his cool – slugged Zimmerman – took him to the ground – beat the hell out of him with deadly fists – and repeatedly bashed his head against the concrete walkway.
The media depiction of a 12 year old Trayvon was raw deception. In fact, he was a powerfully built,
seventeen-year-old six-footer. Also, Zimmerman wasn’t White in the traditional sense, but a short, light skinned Hispanic with some Black ancestry and a proactive and positive anti-racial history. The media even invented “White Hispanic” to reinforce the appeal of their “White Adult Kills Black Child” headline.
Last, and certainly not least, the Zimmerman affair and trial served the interests of the Obama Administration by getting the Obama scandals and cover-ups out of the media spotlight – in anticipation of the upcoming midterm elections. The Dems “never let a good crisis go to waste” as Rahm Emanuel likes to say. Everything is politics in the Obama camp.
