If Zimmerman Was Black, He “Never Would Have Been Charged”

According to famed, leftist attorney, Alan Dershowitz, the Zimmerman trial should never have occurred in the first place. We are led to believe that the entire black population and the right-thinking white community, sensitive to “the struggle,” is on board. Everyone with a soapbox is invested in ginning up a manufactured sense of racial discrimination. There is racial discrimination evident but it is George Zimmerman and, by extension, the rest of America that is being victimized.

The response to Zimmerman’s unanimous acquittal is, unfortunately, predictable. Sabers are being rattled, pitchforks and torches are being brandished with varying degrees of malevolence. Beyoncé called for a minute of silence during her concert on Saturday. New York Giants wide receiver, Victor Cruz, actually Tweeted a threat: “… Zimmerman doesn’t last a year before the hood catches up to him.” Miami Heat star Dwayne Wade Tweeted that he was “stunned” by the verdict and “saddened as a father.” He added “How do I explain this to my young boys????” Recognition that the black community is constantly being played might help him.

Opinions such as these have been inflamed and distorted for decades by threats, posturing and the manufactured outrage of race pimps like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Racism has become an enormous business, solidly-entrenched. The presumption of racism has been carefully cultivated. It is pervasive and has transformed society. Marinated in victimization, the aggrieved are further egged-on by celebu-dolts and the media. Because the Zimmerman verdict was delivered on a weekend, the MSM’s reaction has been particularly irresponsible.

Christina Silva, a hack for the Associated Press, Tweeted “So it’s okay to kill teenagers now? Just checking.” Dismayed, the AP attempted to cut bait; Silva, they claimed, was just a part-timer and “hadn’t worked for (them) lately.” Not quite. Silva’s latest AP byline had appeared on July 5th.

Demands for ever-more discussion of race, by the media, have already begun. What they are not demanding is an honest discussion of race. Threats, accusations of racial discrimination and assertions that the “system” has let down the black community are endemic; how the mutation of fact into a pervasive sense of affliction endures, is the subject that should be addressed. It won’t be. Political correctness, at work for decades, has resulted in a death-grip on entitlement, indisputable and unassailable. The result is a perversion of the law, creating a profound rift in society.
