Racial Politics & the Victim Mentality – A Social Epidemic

April 21, 2012 Posted by Devon Boyd devon@hollywoodrepublican.net

You can’t turn on the news right now without hearing about the case of Trayvon Martin, the black teenager who was shot and killed in Florida by neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman.  I’m not going to go into the fact that he was sneaking around, essentially trespassing on people’s property at night wearing a hoodie, nor will I comment on the fact that a witness saw him on top of George Zimmerman, attacking him viciously just moments before Zimmerman fired at him.  I will wait to see the evidence before I make a final judgment on whether or not he was shot in self-defense.  If it turns out that Trayvon was shot in cold blood, then Zimmerman deserves to be punished for his crime.  If the witnesses for Zimmerman are in fact telling the truth, then Trayvon got what he deserved and, frankly, I would have shot him myself.

wanted black panthersBut this rant isn’t to ponder the evidence, nor is it to make a case for Zimmerman’s guilt or innocence – that is for a jury to decide.  What I am more interested in, no… what I am absolutely disgusted by, is the response of the black community and its “supposed” leaders to this unfortunate event.  The usual cast of characters, led by Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and “the like”, slithered out from their holes to spout their usual racist, ignorant, riot inspiring drivel.  Spike Lee tweeted Zimmerman’s address for retribution (which turned out to be the address of an elderly couple who, unfortunately for them, happen to have the same name), an angry black mob stormed inside of a Rite-aid in protest and began looting (don’t even get me started with that one…), even president Obama in his typical, rush to judgment, rally to the black cause, racist fashion, joined the witch hunt to demonize this “white” man.  This is all before the facts of the case are even known.  Most troubling yet, the New Black Panthers are putting a bounty on this man’s head.

Where is Eric Holder on this one?  Pretty sure it’s illegal to put a bounty on someone’s head in this country…

James Cooper-James Kouzaris-Shawn TysonLet me put this in perspective… There is another story that was in the news recently but not too many people know about.  Ironically, it also took place in Florida.  Two young “white” British men, James Cooper, 25, and James Kouzaris, 24, got lost on the way home and accidentally wandered into the projects. They were unfortunate enough to run into 17 year old, Shawn Tyson, who held them at gunpoint, heckling them and calling them “crackers” before murdering them both in cold blood as they begged for their lives.  Their bodies were found shirtless, with their pants around their ankles

The father of one of the young men has written numerous letters to President Obama that have been ignored.  To quote The Daily Mail, “Mr Kouzaris has written to President Obama on three separate occasions and is yet to even receive the courtesy of a reply.” In his own words, ‘It would perhaps appear that Mr. Obama sees no political value in facilitating such a request or that the lives of two British tourists are not worthy of ten minutes of his time.’

Trayvon Martin media biasSo I ask you, why is THIS story not being told? Why does the black community rush to persecute non-blacks for crimes against blacks, but so blindly ignores the cancer that grows from within their own communities?  Over 50% of the people murdered in this country every year are black.  An overwhelming percentage of that is black on black crime.  If Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton were real community leaders, not self-aggrandizing bigots, they would be focusing their attention on the real problem instead of trying to start a race war every chance they get.  But it’s not just them… It is the media and the black community that fuels this bigotry, and keeps them in the spotlight.  In the case of Trayvon Martin, the liberal media played the part, posting pictures of young Trayvon as a child.  Smiling.  Young.  Innocent.  As Obama said, “You know, if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon.”

The black community needs to WAKE UP.

It is 2012 not 1960.  The New Black Panthers are more filled with hate then the original Black Panthers, and the Black Panthers at least had reason to be angry.  This new generation spewing hate has never seen real racism.  They have never had to sit on the back of the bus, nor have they been denied basic human rights because of the color of their skin.  The hate is nothing more now than a crutch, a victim mentality that allows people to blame everyone else but themselves for their problems.  If you have gold teeth, a “thug life” tattoo on your neck, and a third grade education, let me clue you in… it’s not because you’re black that you didn’t get the job…

And murder is a hate crime no matter what color your skin is.  You don’t kill someone because you fancy them…

I think Bill Cosby said it best…

    >>I’m not going to go into the fact that he was sneaking around, essentially trespassing on people’s property at night wearing a hoodie,

    What the fuck are you talking about? He was on his way home from buying Skittles and iced tea, talking to his girlfriend on his cell phone, expressing concern that some guy was following him. THOSE are facts. Do you even know anything about this case?

    >>nor will I comment on the fact that a witness saw him on top of George Zimmerman, attacking him viciously just moments before Zimmerman fired at him.

    Good, because there’s conflicting witness testimony, so that wouldn’t mean much.

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/03/29/trayvon-martin-witness-casts-doubt-on-shooters-self-defense-claims/

    >>I will wait to see the evidence before I make a final judgment on whether or not he was shot in self-defense.

    Yes, I can tell already, you’re a pillar of impartiality.

    >>he usual cast of characters, led by Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and “the like”, slithered out from their holes to spout their usual racist, ignorant, riot inspiring drivel.

    Who’s “the like” of Jackson and Sharpton? And what “racist, ignorant, riot inspiring drivel” did they spout? You have even a single example? Those are some strong words to not have an example.

    >>an angry black mob stormed inside of a Rite-aid in protest and began looting

    I can’t find any evidence of this at all. None. Zero. See why linking is so important? Do you just believe every rumor you hear about black people being violent?

    >>even president Obama in his typical, rush to judgment, rally to the black cause, racist fashion, joined the witch hunt to demonize this “white” man.

    He did? How? I know he eulogized about Martin, but what did he say that “demonized” the white man or suggested a rush to judgment on his part? See why quotes are important?

    >>Most troubling yet, the New Black Panthers are putting a bounty on this man’s head.

    Man, you’re just hitting all the talking points, aren’t you? Yes, there’s this group of extremist militant blacks. It has like, I dunno, six members. The Right likes to point to them every time the subject of race comes up to remind everyone how okay it is to be scared of black people. Nicely done.

    >>So I ask you, why is THIS story not being told?

    You’re an idiot. The reason the Trayvon case became so big is not because it’s a white guy killing an unarmed black teen, it’s because the white guy then WASN’T ARRESTED FOR IT, and the community got angry. Not every murder story merits national headlines. Not even every murder story where a member of one race kills another. Sadly, that happens all the time. This case didn’t became controversial overnight, it built steadily over several weeks.

    And are you seriously upset that black-on-white violence doesn’t get ENOUGH press? That there aren’t ENOUGH reminders on the news that black people are violent and scary and want to kill white people? Cause they seem to have had plenty effect on you already.

    (Oh, and incidentally? That “Media bias” photo comparison? You’re aware that the guy on the right is NOT Trayvon, right? But whatever, they all look alike, right?)

    >>The New Black Panthers are more filled with hate then the original Black Panthers, and the Black Panthers at least had reason to be angry.

    Not to defend the New Black Panthers, but you’re saying blacks in 2012 America have no reason to be angry? Racism is gone? Wow. Did not know that. Good to hear!

    Oh wait…

    >>This new generation spewing hate has never seen real racism. They have never had to sit on the back of the bus, nor have they been denied basic human rights because of the color of their skin.

    There’s just nothing like a white guy talking about the racism that black people haven’t experienced. Cause he ought to know.

    >>And murder is a hate crime no matter what color your skin is.

    Says the guy spewing every talking point in defense of George Zimmerman, the guy who, you know, KILLED A TEENAGER. Who was unarmed. And buying Skittles. And talking with his girlfriend about some guy following him.

    >>I think Bill Cosby said it best…

    Of course you do. The time you side with a black person is when they’re criticizing black people. It’s just uncanny.

    I’ve read a lot of pieces about this case, and I gotta say, this is pretty much the ugliest and stupidest.

    So, you know…Congrats!

    The facts do not align with Trayvon Martin being an innocent boy walking down the sidewalk, munching on skittles, and talking on his cell phone.

    Maybe his girl friend tells the story that way now, after being coached by Al Sharpton, but the facts contradict that accounting.

    It was raining, it was dark, Trayvon was alleged to be returning to his father’s girl friend’s apartment after going to the store to buy Skittles and Iced Tea.

    I’ve done some research.

    FACT: Trayvon was a drug user, smoked grass frequently. Matter of public record as well as statements made by people who knew Trayvon. His parents claim he had stopped that – but they are his parents. What would you expect them to say?

    FACT: Trayvon was a violent youth, a member of an informal fight club, a sometimes participant and frequent referee in after school fights. There was a couple graphic YouTube videos that showed Trayvon referee’ing fights but those appear to have been taken off line.

    FACT: Zimmerman’s home and the location from where George Zimmerman first observed Trayvon Martin, and then called 911 reporting suspicious activity, is NOT ‘on the route’ between the store and Trayvon’s father’s girl friend’s home. Google up the map and look for yourself. Zimmerman’s home is in the extreme northeast corner of the community.

    Trayvon’s father’s girl friend’s home is in the middle of the far western lane. The primary entranceway into the gated community is in the middle of the south side of the roughly rectangular community shape.

    FACT: Where corroborated character related testimony is concerned – George Zimmerman comes off as a lot more credible than Trayvon Martin (or his girl friend, or his father). A community watch member of long standing, respected by local police even though he had been in an altercation with them at one time. A volunteer tutor/mentor for black children. A good citizen and a productive member of his community.

    FACT: Those who call George Zimmerman paranoid because he called 911 on a number of occasions don’t bother to do the math.

    George was doing community watch two or three times a week, 8 to 15 hours. His calls to 911 work out to have been less than one per two months. That means less than one time out of twenty ‘community watch’ shifts resulted in a 911 call; at the same time it shows that he had some experience with 911 interactions and that he was (at that point) reasonably likely to have been calm and objective in his reporting to the operator.

    Up to the point of the altercation – it was a rather routine event for him. Passively monitoring the behavior of a suspiciously acting individual and informing the operator (and the police) about what was happening, while waiting for a patrol vehicle to arrive.

    A crude approximation:

    |————————–|
    | GZ’s
    | home
    | |
    | |
    | |
    |x |
    | |
    | | —Store
    | | ——/
    |————Gate—————-/

    FACT: There had been several break-ins and thefts in the neighborhood – some directly attributed to one or more black youths, one report specifically mentioned a tall, thin black youth. Research the police botter as reported in the newspaper archives.

    FACT: The only known eyewitness saw only part of the events. He heard a commotion and someone yelling for help. He saw the black youth (Trayvon) on top of the white Hispanic guy beating him up. Trayvon was obviously alive, at least momentarily in control of the situation and electing to beat on George Zimmerman rather than make his escape.

    ================================
    For the following hypothesis I am employing Occam’s Razor and connecting the dots.

    The mostly likely scenarios?

    Trayvon may have been ghetto shopping, had some stolen property on his person when he noticed George Zimmerman eyeballing him.

    Or maybe Trayvon had been smoking a joint, had a little weed in his pocket.

    For whatever reason, Trayvon cut between the units, cut through back yards (possibly ditching the stolen property somewhere), then re-emerged to see George Zimmerman walking back towards his truck.

    Why did Trayvon choose to confront and assault George Zimmerman rather than continue to move away?

    Trayvon had seen Zimmerman talking on the phone, maybe even overheard enough to realize Zimmerman was talking to the 911 operator.

    The ONLY RATIONAL EXPLANATION for why he would come back and confront George Zimmerman is that he had something to hide, he couldn’t afford to be questioned by the police and maybe searched.

    If he was an innocent kid being stalked – he would have fled to the apartment and told his father he was being followed by some Hispanic guy. They might have been on the phone, talking to the police. Or his father might have gone with him back out into the street to see if this jerk who was following his son was still out there, and what it was all about.

    Why did Trayvon not break off his assault when George pulled out a gun?

    The most likely reason is that it was dark, maybe he was high, in any event he either didn’t see the gun, or Trayvon was not thinking clearly.

    Possibly, in his mental state, Trayvon didn’t realize that this wasn’t a school yard fight with ‘limits’ and ‘rules’ of engagement. In any event I doubt that he was fully cognizent of the fact that George had a gun and that George pulling the trigger was inevitable if Trayvon attempted to close and grapple with George at that point.

    George Zimmerman has not been reported (that I have read) to have said anything like halt or I’ll shoot, or freeze, stop right there.

    George’s account appears to be that he (George) managed to get Trayvon off of him, that he (George) was dazed and battered, he (George) pulled out the gun, Trayvon advanced on him and George fired a single shot.

    Any time a 17 year old gets in over his head and makes a stupid choice that causes him to be maimed or killed, it’s a senseless tragedy. But that doesn’t make it murder.

    Several things, all bad, had to come together for this death to happen, including the single shot being fatal. On this night, all these elements came together to the nearly worst possible outcome, like a Greek Tragedy.

    Shawn Tyson’s unprovoked torture and murder of a couple British tourists – THAT WAS RACIALLY MOTIVATED.

    If Trayvon Martin’s death makes you angrier than Shawn Tyson’s crimes, you need to start working on the man in the mirror.

    Syspro, I’m not gonna go through your laundry list of “facts”, because you lose all cred pretty much immediately with:

    “Trayvon was a drug user, smoked grass frequently.”

    Means nothing, even IF it’s a fact (which, since we don’t know where you’re getting this from, since you didn’t link to ANYTHING in that entire laundry list, who’s to say?). “Smoked grass frequently”…like the huge majority of teenagers and college students, and an enormous chunk of everyone else? That doesn’t make him even a suspected violent criminal. It doesn’t make him anything except absolutely normal, and if you know anything about smoking pot, it’s that the average stoner is probably LESS likely to be at all violent.

    Beyond that, you entirely overlook the fact that less than FIVE MINUTES before the police arrive, he was talking on his cell with his girlfriend, concerned about the strange man following him, and that IS a documented fact. So any hypothetical that places the guilt on Trayvon kinda has to include that to have any cred, you know?

    Anyway, so right there, strong indication that you’re a huge ignoramus, so I’ll leave the rest of it alone, save this:

    >>If Trayvon Martin’s death makes you angrier than Shawn Tyson’s crimes, you need to start working on the man in the mirror.

    I didn’t say anything remotely like that. I said that the reason that case hadn’t gotten the notoriety that Trayvon’s had gotten was because Trayvon’s shooter had not been arrested, which caused a community uproar. I didn’t say a single word about how angry I feel about either case. They’re both tragedies. My point was that there’s no media conspiracy in the fact that one got more attention than the other; it’s that one caused a neighborhood uproar and one didn’t.

    But keep armchair detecting. I can tell you’re really good at it!

    >>His calls to 911 work out to have been less than one per two months.

    Incidentally, this is just factually wrong.

    He called them 46 times between the beginning of 2011 and the shooting. That’s 46 in less than fourteen months, or almost three PER month.

    And what “emergencies” he called about over the years!

    September, 2005 – Called about a stray dog

    March, 2005 – Called about a pothole. A POTHOLE.

    November, 2010 – Called about a pile of trash in the road.

    Dude was obsessed with being a cop. He was arrested in 2005 for resisting arrest with violence and battery. He was fired from a security guard job for being too aggressive. A former co-worker compares him to Jekyll and Hyde.

    Your “Occam’s Razor” theory isn’t even sharp enough to cut the paper it’s printed on.

      Sorry, MORE than three calls per month. Must be a lot of potholes down there.
