You may not have noticed it but it’s there.
A WHITE Person is killed in a firearms related incident. The Liberal Left goes insane. Full on berserker mode. Heads spinning! Exorcism worthy.
A BLACK Person is killed in a firearms related incident.
Yeap, that’s right. That’s about what you hear.
Trayvon Martin had nothing to do with gun control. Doesn’t fit. The Martin-Zimmerman hullabaloo was all about Stand Your Ground Laws. Even though Black folks benefit more from the “Stand Your Ground” laws in this nation, the Left will tell you that these laws are racist. The only time that race comes into the question is when it is a Black Male shooting a White Male. In those instances, Black Males are at a cultural disadvantage when it comes to Stand Your Ground laws. The Left won’t tell you the full story. One has to research this to find the truth. The Right doesn’t want to talk about that last bit either.
The oddest bit about the Martin-Zimmerman contrivance was that Zimmerman isn’t a White Person. He is Half-Hispanic. If Half Black Obama is Black, why is Half Hispanic Zimmerman White? That is the Left in action. Duplicity. Hypocrisy.
There have been approximately 9,000 Black on Black murders since Trayvon Martin was killed by Zimmerman. Have you heard about this? No, you haven’t. Why? Why does the left not use this as part of their Gun Control dialogue? Maybe they don’t want to seem racist by highlighting Black on Black crime. It’s taboo. Discussing Black crime will see one branded a racist by the Left. They can’t very well have an open dialogue about this issue if they won’t allow anyone else to honestly and openly discuss it.
Black people in America suffer from gun violence so disproportionately as to be nearly unfathomable. However, we can’t discuss this. One problem is that discussing race is taboo in the Age of Obama and “post-racial America.” The Democrats have painted themselves into a corner. They won’t allow anyone else to discuss it. This makes it nearly impossible for the Left to discuss it. When Black leaders discuss it, they are marginalized and called Uncle Tom’s because “How dare they jump off message and out of the Democratic Plantation!”
America ignores the violence challenge of Black communities. The only reason that Trayvon Martin received any press was that incident’s availability to the Left as a racial baton with which to bash America, the Red States, WHITEY, Red Necks and those who failed to obey by voting for Barack Obama. If it weren’t for the political usefulness of Trayvon and his hoody, no Democrat in America would have given it one second’s thought. That includes Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton who are the greatest race pimps in the history of mankind.
I will concede that Martin was murdered. The reasons that I assign are quite different. The Media has been portraying Black people on the news, TV and in movies as violent and out of control. Reminders of Watts and Rondey King and O.J. Simpson are ubiquitous. Black people are portrayed most often on TV as gang banging, hoody wearing animals on TV. TV shows such as The Wire, Southland, The Shield and more portray all Black people as either corrupt or violent. There are very few positive Black characters on television or in the movies. The News may as well show pictures of Fallujah when they speak about Detroit or Chicago and it’s Black denizens.
With that in mind, White people start to see Black people as they are portrayed. This country is only 13 to 15% “African American.” Most White people have never had meaningful interaction with Black people. They know of Hollywood stars, rappers, assorted other artists and Sports figures who are Black. We’ve all heard of Marion Barry and Roy Nagin, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. For many White people, these people ARE Black People or “African Americans.” This picture of Black America is informed by the news which is always about violence (if it bleeds, it leads) or corruption. If this was the only thing that you knew about a group of people, how would you react when you encountered them.
I’ve known Black folks my whole life. I worked with Black folks in the Army. I work with Black folks overseas in Afghanistan and
elsewhere. I’ve had very few violent encounters with Black folks. The one truly violent and racial encounter that I had with Black people was in Baumholder, Germany. I was jumped by eight black guys who thought that I was alone. They jumped me and tried to beat me down while calling me a “dirty ——ing CRACKA!” and “F—-ing Honkey” and that sort of thing. One of them yelled; “I got your massa’ right here” as he hit me with a brick in the face. I yelled for my friends who were around the corner. They came to my aid. Two of those friends were Black guys. We rough them off together. I’m proud to say that I broke one of their shoulders with the brick with which they had earlier hit me.
How does one hate Black people for a bigoted beating attempt when those who came to your aid were also Black? It’s kind of difficult.
This leads me back to WHITEY and the Gun Control Crowd. There have been somewhere around 80 “mass gun murders” in the past decade killing approximately 200 people. Primarily WHITE people.
In that same time frame, there have been thousands of BLACK folks killed in America.
Yet, the only time that the Left gets it’s faux outrage up into a self righteous lather is when it’s WHITE people being murdered in White neighborhoods.
I find this interesting. I, also, find it further proof of the duplicity and callous bigotry of the DNC. Race is only a problem in America when it is convenient to the Democratic National Party. If race cannot be politicized, it is rarely raised as an issue. This is the very definition of hypocrisy. This is the Democratic National Party or Committee as it is called.
P.S. Now think about all of the Police murders in Black communities. The numbers are bewildering. But let us not talk about this. We’ll be branded “extremists” by the transparent Obama Administration.
