Fake 911 Call Led Cops To Shoot Innocent College Student Dead - There Are Trayvon Martins All Over The World... black people cannot feel safe...


First let me remind you what I said the other day…
"I heard an interview with Trayvon’s mother and attorney saying that all of the 411 now coming out on racist right wing websites and blogs like yours truly are trying to paint Trayvon in a negative light and has nothing to do with what ultimately happened but his past behavior had everything to do with what happened. Common fucking sense tells you that the more you engage in questionable behavior at some point you will indeed pay for those transgressions at some point. I know it is not just black parents who are in denial when it comes to how they view their kids but we all know that there will be more Trayvon Martin incidences down the road. The question is what type of parent will you be, the one who keeps their head in the sand and refuses to see reality which will no doubt lead to their kid possible being shot and killed or at the very least incarcerated? Or the one who will have “the talk” who will have the an honest conversation with their child on how NOT to be like Trayvon."

Ok now check out this tidbit…
 There Are Trayvon Martins All Over The World 
 Trayvon Martin’s death proved, once again, that we Black men cannot feel safe living in our own brown skin. Or in Trayvon’s case, a hoodie.
 No matter our professional prowess, academic pedigree or legal citizenship, we cannot feel safe walking the streets of our own communities without sensing imminent danger from the George Zimmermans of the world who are hellbent on criminalizing our every move.

You know I feel like I am continuing to kick the shit out of the proverbial dead horse.
Ok I read this shit and I’m like really? 

Ok I had to read again and again because maybe my reading comprehension is woefully inadequate: 
 “we cannot feel safe walking the streets of our own communities without sensing imminent danger from the George Zimmermans of the world”
Folks what have I been ranting about all week… so here we have another ranting Negro who I guess believes that black folks should be more concerned with the GZ’s of the world rather than the criminally minded black folks who patrol the hoods across America.
BLACK MEN ARE FAR MORE LIKELY TO BE KILLED BY ANOTHER BLACK MAN. But no… we apparently can’t tell the truth and face reality.

Now peeps I will be honest, I know that when I go to these black websites and blogs that the narrative they portray is that of chaos, unfairness and whitey racism because if any of these sites had someone who speaks like I do Negros would not want to heard any of my “pro-whitey” “uncle tom” “sellout” diatribes because these folks need readers and getting readers means talking nonsense and provoking fake outrage.
Me I don’t give a fuck, I blog as an outlet and I have no agenda and other than the occasional kind donation I don’t get jack, it would be nice… if y’all know of some wealthy dude willing to sponsor the rantings of a right wing conservative black dude who could use a few dead president he hook a brotha up please.


Ok back to this…

You read what I said the other day, and then the above nonsensical piece…

Now check this out… another “innocent” you black man killed by police.

I’m not even going to rant on this one, anyone who reads this blog often know me and you already know what I think about this story and what my take is.
So if anyone is willing to tell me why my assessment or analysis would be incorrect please feel free to do so.

   Fake 911 Call Led Cops To Shoot Innocent College Student Dead
 A fake 911 call made by Oscar Carillo, 26, led Pasadena, California police officers to kill an innocent college student whom they thought was guilty of robbery, reports the Daily Mail.

 Carillo, a Latino cellular store worker, placed a 911 call Saturday night to report that two young African American males had stolen his backpack with a laptop inside of it out of his car. He alleged that they were wearing head-to-toe black. He said one was armed with a weapon. Carillo then changed his story and said both teens were armed. Carillo told police that the boys were traveling on foot on Orange Grove Blvd.
 
According to Pasadena Police Chief Philip Sanchez, the erroneous chain of events and tragic end result was ignited by that phony phone call and accounts for the mindset of the officers, who wound up killing 19-year-old Kendrec McDade because they thought he was armed with a gun.
When two officers spotted McDade and a 17-year-old unidentified accomplice walking along Orange Grove, they approached them. Reportedly, McDade ran from the officers until another policeman used his cruiser to corner him in an alley. Police said that McDade allegedly made a motion towards the waist of his pants and that’s when they opened fire.
McDade, who was a college student and football star, died as a result of the gunshot wounds. When police questioned Carillo about his phone call to 911, he admitted that his plea for help was partly fake. He said he had made up his story about the suspects being armed in order to speed up police response. Investigators believe that Carrillo knew the two suspects. Carrillo said that he recognized them in part because they patronized the cellular store at which he is employed. As the investigation progresses, detectives have now determined that there are many inconsistencies to Carillo’s story. One thing is clear: both McDade and the other teen were unarmed. Investigators never found a backpack or a laptop on either of the men.
According to the McDade family’s lawyer, Caree Harper, ”His [Carillo] brazen lie triggered a series of events that caused my client’s son to be killed on the street like a dog, and we want justice,” he told the Pasadena Sun. Harper suspects that Carrillo “knew that by saying black men robbed me in hoodies, it would trigger an expedited response from the police department, and he got just that. This man lied about about one thing, so he could lie about another,” says Harper. “There’s so much reasonable doubt you could spread it with a knife.”
The unidentified 17-year-old was arrested and charged with two counts of commercial burglary, one count of grand theft and one count of failure to register as a gang member as a condition of his probation. Harper, who also represents the teen, will request that the youth be released on Thursday.
According to the Los Angeles Times, a security camera video depicts that there were two young men involved in the theft of Carillo’s backpack from his car. Police Chief Sanchez is alleging that McDade was the lookout in the theft. Meanwhile police arrested Carillo on Wednesday and charged him with involuntary manslaughter related to the officer involved shooting.
The case has garnered the attention of the American Civil Liberties Union who are calling for an independent investigation. Religious and civil rights leaders in the area have also demanded to speak to Police Chief Sanchez about the murder. The L.A. County District Attorney’s office is delving into the case and Police Chief Sanchez says his department is sorting through video tapes and audio transmissions.
The McDade case smacks of the recent Trayvon Martin murder, the unarmed teen who was shot to death last month by George Zimmerman, also a Latino, who claims that the boy was armed and a threat to his life.

 Are you freaking kidding me? Skittles should donate profits? - Neal Boortz

 Folks I’m starting my reads for today and I see this headline and I’m like, really, seriously!? This is another of countless examples on why black people when it comes to addressing issues are not taken seriously. So you used as a symbol fucking candy just because it is known the kid carried them, gave these people free advertising and increased their profits while at the same time bitched and complained that “whitey” was evil and the devil and responsible for the kids death not even remotely processing the fact that maybe just maybe the people at the top who owns the damn company are white! So whitey is the devil and evil except when you want to need them for something, er uh like VOTE FOR OBAMA. Yippee a Negro is president, we did it! Nope whitey put up the money and rallied the vote. The same whitey racist society that got Trayvon murdered. But we went out and bought all those Skittles and hoodies too… so you want the profits for that too!? Like my friend in the comments section in yesterday’s post said, black people are 12% of the population but a small percentage of that 12 percent (thugs, drug dealers, race and poverty pimps) really make the rest of us black folks look like a bunch of idiots. 

Boortz:
Now we have aaaaaaacitivst demanding that Skittles donate profits to Treyvon Martin’s family?  Is this what is passing as rational thought among those who are using this tragic story to advance their own agendas?  Let’s see if I understand this:  Treyvon goes to the convenience store and buys, as I understand it, an Arizona Iced Tea for his brother and a bag of skittles for himself.  On the way back to his father’s house he encounters George Zimmerman … and we’re still trying to figure out what happens from there.  But now we have ignoranuses demanding that Skittles donate profits to ---- well, they’re not quite clear on that. 
Much of this idiocy is happening on Twitter.  Here are two of the Tweets making their way around the Internet: 
  • "Hey @Skittles & @DrinkAriZona you might want to donate some of your HUGE profits from the tragic moment in US history? Or not? #whysoquiet"
  • "I bet @Skittles profits are rising because of the tragedy of @JusticeForTray. I'm willing to bet they don't care either!"
Similar Tweets are being sent regarding Arizona Iced Tea. 
Part of this, of course, is the sense among the undedicated that profits are some how evil.  My mind is still recovering from the idiocy I saw on a pledge drive for SW Florida PBS station WGCU. The insipid host of this broadcast said that if you would just become a WGCU “member” you could be “proud of being a member of an organization that isn’t interested in making a profit.”  The converse here is that if you are part of an organization or company that IS interested in making a profit, you should be somehow embarrassed. 
I guess I should reprimand myself for being surprised at this nonsense.  After all, the ruler of this country has spoken out against the profit motive and has gone to great lengths to cast business profits as an evil plague on mankind.  That’s what Marxists do.
For Skittles, death brings both profit and risk 
The candy has been transformed into a cultural icon, which has its pitfalls 

*******
and this
Oh yeah:  That’s another thing.  The race pimps who came rushing out of their dens  to exploit the Treyvon Martin tragedy were surely dismayed when they found out that George Zimmerman was Hispanic.  The racial exploitation value of this incident is reduced considerably if the killer can’t be shown to be white.  Zimmerman’s father SAYS he’s Hispanic, and he LOOKS Hispanic … so what to do?  I mean, after all!  His name’s ZIMMERMAN, for goodness’ sake!  It now seems that they best they can do is call him a WHITE Hispanic.  Gotta get that “white” thing in there or the cause is lost to the race whores.

Florida Shooter's Race a Complicated Matter 


La Raza says it's not ignoring Trayvon Martin case - CNN 
(CNN) -- The National Council of La Raza responded to accusations on Wednesday by critics such as conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh that the civil rights organization has not been vocal enough during the Trayvon Martin controversy.
"We really regret people trying to use this to divide blacks and Latinos," said Lisa Navarrete, a spokeswoman for La Raza. "It's disturbing to us that Rush Limbaugh has this theory. The only time he apparently cares about what happens to a Latino is when they may have happened to kill a young African-American man."
In response to a caller on his radio program on Tuesday, Limbaugh suggested La Raza, the largest national Latino civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States, has not stood behind Zimmerman after it was publicized that he identified himself as Hispanic.
"You know, that's an interesting point," Limbaugh said in response to his caller. "You're right. I haven't heard a word from La Raza about this."

I’m gonna say this again believe me when I tell you, Mexican’s don’t like black people not even a little bit. Mexicans have been killing blacks forever. Mexicans and blacks relations are quickly approaching the breaking point in this country. Opportunities that may or may not be available to blacks are quickly drying up because Mexicans have almost completely taken over especially in the service sector part of our economy.
I wrote about a trip I took to LA and my ex and I played a game, “find a black worker.”
We were in LA for 10 days and saw only 3 employed black folks in the places we went to of course.
A number of restaurants, fast food and others, convenience stores/gas stations, our hotel, several grocery stores, discount store folks we were all over LA from my visits to the Reagan and Nixon Libraries, a trade show I attended, Hollywood, Long Beach, Inglewood.
My point folks is Mexican have all but pushed out  black folks not only in the job sector but politically as well.
Now the reason why La Raza and other Mexicans are not coming to Zimmerman’s defense is because Mexicans still need black folks vote and Mexicans know that despite the known issues in order to wrestle power from whitey... brown folks need to stick together.
I’m certain that the Mexican leadership has told its minions to keep quiet about this issue that Zimmerman will just have to be a causality for the cause.
The same reason why black leadership has kept quiet on illegal immigration both must stay on the same page to fight against whitey.
Now having said that once Mexicans become a more prominent force politically and socially eventually they will conclude that they don’t need black folks and they will cast black folks aside like permanently shit stained tighty whiteys.

 Trayvon Martin: The pictures are worth a thousand words - Conservative Resources 
"the real news story about Trayvon Martin’s death is not the tragedy of an unfulfilled young life snuffed out prematurely – it’s not really news when something happens nine or ten times a day. The real story is the race-hustling vultures who swooped in to feed on the carcass of Trayvon’s body. Our first black president needed a distraction to keep people from looking at his job performance, the media needed to help him succeed to justify their journalistic failures in 2008, and the people who make their living by fanning the flickering flames of race turmoil – people like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Spike Lee – needed something to make them matter again."

James Carville Argues that an ObamaCare Defeat Helps Democrats - American Thinker  
 James Carville might be onto something, but for the wrong reason.  Carville is arguing that if the U.S. Supreme Court kills ObamaCare, Democrats can hang that failure around the necks of Republicans.  Carville believes that future escalating health care costs will sour voters on Republicans, who Democrats will associate ObamaCare's defeat.

    Carville, like many of his fellow Democrats, actually believe that a massive federal government program like ObamaCare won't produce massive costs and gross inefficiencies, which will increase year after year.  That's the history of big government programs.

    What Carville elects not to acknowledge is that ObamaCare has never enjoyed good favor among a majority of Americans, which polls -- and the 2010 congressional elections -- affirm.

RNC Releases Audio Of Obama Lawyer Embarrassing Himself Before Supreme Court – UPDATE: Toobin Today: Now it’s a “Plane Wreck” - Nice Deb

 Obama budget defeated 414-0
President Obama's budget was defeated 414-0 in the House late Wednesday, in a vote Republicans arranged to try to embarrass him and shelve his plan for the rest of the year.
The vote came as the House worked its way through its own fiscal year 2013 budget proposal, written by Budget Committee Chairman Paul D. Ryan. Republicans wrote an amendment that contained Mr. Obama's budget and offered it on the floor, daring Democrats to back the plan, which calls for major tax increases and yet still adds trillions of dollars to the deficit over the next decade.

"It’s not a charade. It’s not a gimmick — unless what the president sent us is the same," said Rep. Mick Mulvaney, a freshman Republican from South Carolina who sponsored Mr. Obama's proposal for purposes of the debate. "I would encourage the Democrats to embrace this landmark Democrat document and support it. Personally, I will be voting against it."

But no Democrats accepted the challenge.
This is clearly racist!

OBAMA SUCKS THE MUSIC VIDEO! Hours After Attending Trayvon Martin Peace Rally, FL Man Is Charged With Beating & Kidnapping Woman - Middle-Schoolers Assigned Opposition Research on GOP Candidates - Video Proof Black Panthers… the most retarded bunch of Negros on the planet - Profiling - by Walter E. Williams - Now that's gansta!

OBAMA SUCKS THE MUSIC VIDEO!


 


No Justice! No Peace!… Hours After Attending Trayvon Martin Peace Rally, FL Man Is Charged With Beating and Kidnapping Woman - via Gateway Pundit 
A Millersville University student is charged with kidnapping and assaulting his ex-girlfriend only hours after he allegedly stood up against violence at an on-campus rally held in honor of Florida teen Trayvon Martin.
Police tell us the victim was punched several times in the face and head, she was then kidnapped and dragged to her ex-boyfriend’s home. Fortunately her loud screams alerted neighbors who called for help.
Hours after sources say 24-year-old Millersville student Akeem Johnson stood up against violence and rallied in support of slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin, he found himself handcuffed and charged with kidnapping and brutally assaulting his ex-girlfriend.

 You see this is why every damn time I see black folks protesting some bullshit it irritates the shit out of me.
Ah the days of Rodney King, be outraged at the justice system and rather than take an intellectual approach to addressing the issue, you burn down your own fucking neighborhoods and businesses, we’ll show whitey!
It also like the Occupy Wall Street tards, most of these mutherfuckers are a bunch of degenerate jackasses who really don’t give a shit about what they are protesting they just want to “belong” to something they want to feel useful.

When I was involved in my community stuff I was engaged in all sorts of community issues from neighborhood watch and community policing, to illegal dumping in poor neighborhoods, gang violence, school violence, school desegregation, community noise issues, traffic issues and much more. Let me tell you people I WAS ALMOST ALWAYS THE ONLY BLACK FACE ON ANY COMMITTEE, BOARD, FOCUS GROUP, COUNCIL WHATEVER. Almost all of the issues I involved myself with had direct consequences to the well-being of black folks.
I use to personally go to the churches and speak with pastors to damn near beg them to involve themselves in various issues where their support could make a difference.
While some would lend some cursory support other would simply sit on their hands.
If it did not mean more money in their fucking pockets they did not give a shit.

This is why these Trayvon protests are mind-bogglingly ridiculous and even more duplicitous.
I keep repeating myself so please forgive me but there are so many issues facing black people but almost NEVER will they truly engage themselves in solving any fucking relevant issues and if they do it is almost always about “the show” and not the substance.
  
Was this incident tragic yes, but like I said random white people are not likely to be driving to the hoods to start picking off random black people for the hell of it.
Few if any of these people including dickhead Spike Lee truly give a shit about Martin or his parents. They all know including our idiot president that people are Tweeting about this issue; every damn talk show is dissecting every angle so people want to feel important, feel like they are taking a stand wanting to believe that they matter.

However when they go back home they will continue to dodge the bullets in the hood,  black men will continue to ignore their kids, black parents will continue to be oblivious about the whereabouts of their kids all of the same shit that went on in the hood before Trayvon’s will continue including random beating of women.
It is far more likely that any dudes you see at any of these fucking protests are more likely there trying to hook up with females than they are standing for any cause.
Sure go to join in the protest of the killing of an “innocent” young black teen, and afterwards go beat on your woman. Oh and let’s not forget the little bastards who jacked up a Wallgreens.   
I mean seriously people, this is just retarded.  Martin Luther King if he is looking down on all of this would certainly be ashamed of what so many black people have evolved into.

Alveda King: Sharpton, Jackson should stop ‘playing race card’ over Trayvon Martin

  Profiling - by Walter E. Williams - Human Events
Right now, there isn't enough known about the circumstances surrounding the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, a black, by George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old part-Hispanic, during his neighborhood watch tour in an Orlando, Fla., suburb.

If evidence emerges that Zimmerman's actions were not justified, he should be prosecuted and punished; however, there's a larger issue that few people understand or have the courage to acknowledge, namely that black and young has become synonymous with crime and, hence, suspicion. To make that connection does not make one a racist. Let's look at it.
   
Twelve years ago, a black Washington, D.C., commissioner warned cabbies, most of whom were black, against picking up dangerous-looking passengers. She described "dangerous-looking" as a "young black guy ... with shirttail hanging down longer than his coat, baggy pants, unlaced tennis shoes." She also warned cabbies to stay away from low-income black neighborhoods. Did that make the D.C. commissioner a racist?
   
In some cities, such as St. Louis, black pizza deliverers have complained about having to deliver pizzas to certain black neighborhoods, including neighborhoods in which they live. Are they racists? The Rev. Jesse Jackson once remarked, "There is nothing more painful for me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery -- (and) then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved." Does that make the reverend a racist?
   
The former Charleston, S.C., black chief of police, Reuben Greenberg, said the problem facing black America is not racial profiling. He said, "The greatest problem in the black community is the tolerance for high levels of criminality."
 What the fuck people am I missing something or is Williams and yours truly taking this profiling shit too seriously? 

When I went to New York for the first time (I was maybe 30) my former boss (she was black) told me to make damn sure if I went out anywhere and needed to take a cab that I always wore a coat and tie or at least a blazer.
At the time I had just tore a ligament in my foot and was in a walking cast. It was impossible for me to catch a cab in front of any hotel or restaurant. I would always have to walk away from any prime location to an area with less traffic and even then the only people who would pick me up were black cabbies.
While that was fucked up and I did get frustrated, one morning having to walk from 57th st and 7th ave to the Javits Center for a conference. Remember I had just gotten this walking cast a day prior so that particular day walking was painful.
I was not thinking racism; I was thinking mutherfucking idiot ass Negros was the reason I had to endure this shit.
I mentioned that my brother was mugged a couple of times at gunpoint both times by black people and it the time there was an epidemic of robberies in NYC.
This is the one thing you white folks don’t understand all of us black folks regardless or our standing in the community, no matter how well some of us try to behave and be exemplary citizens we get judged by the actions of those who share the same skin pigmentation.
The bad thing people is I’m an oddity or anomaly. I understood the roots of why those taxis passed me by, I understand sometimes a white person’s ambivalence towards me.
Don’t get me wrong I’ve called many a white person redneck honkey inbred fucks.
Some of you white people reek the distain some of you have for black folks and the problem is all black people sense it.
I mentioned I have been in countless gatherings as the lone Negro and many times it is hard as hell. Some of you who have black friends or acquaintance don’t get at all how some of us feel in these circumstances.
If not for my parents I would not be the blunt “Uncle Tom” I am. I just learned to survive and deal with racial issues as they come.
As hard as I appear to be on those that look like I do, I do it out of frustration and the hope that sanity will kick in and young black people will start to weed out ignorance and ghetto minstrel behaviors in addition to people like Jackson and Sharpton and the idiot fucks that comprise the Black Panthers.
This is why I write, mostly to keep my mind occupied but also to hopefully reach someone anyone who just may help stem the tide of the silly shit that has seemingly permeated human civilization.
I don’t want to die having ignored the mental cancer that seemingly plagues black folks. This blog hardly reaching anyone maybe 1000 folks a day or so, I wish I had the money and the influence to truly attack the problem. Maybe by some miracle that will happen but for now I’ll just rant to my local neighborhood peeps for now.

Peace  Gaius

Meet The Real Trayvon Martin - “Blacks Are Under Attack” - Complicated portrait of Trayvon Martin - What If Your Son Doesn't Look Like President Obama?- Pics being posted on websites may NOT be Treyvon Martin - Martin Family Criticize Information Leaks - Trayvon Mother Moves To Trademark Name For Merchandise - Don’t let your children go around wearing hoodies - It Doesn't Matter If You're Black or White


Has Obama, or any race pimps, urged the country to do some soul-searching after the attacks on Allen Coon?

85-year-old woman raped, husband (a veteran) beaten.   Tyrone Woodfork, age 20, arrested and charged.  No Sharpton.  No Jackson.  No Obama. 

Three black males murdered a white male student at Mississippi State.  Some have suggested it may be retaliation for Treyvon’s death.  No word from Jackson, Sharpton or Obama.





The mainstream media has bent over backwards to portray Trayvon Martin as a choir boy who couldn’t have possibly been at fault and George Zimmerman as a malicious racist who was bent on killing him for no reason whatsoever. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to square with the facts we’ve learned since then. That doesn’t mean George Zimmerman is now the good guy and Trayvon Martin is the bad guy or that Zimmerman shouldn’t have to go on trial, it just means the whole case is a lot more ambiguous than it appeared to be at first glance.

George Zimmerman doesn’t appear to be a racist, he MAY HAVE had good cause to shoot Trayvon Martin, and Martin is not the angel he’s being portrayed as in the press. Pointing this out isn’t a “smear campaign,” it’s journalism.

Towards that end, Trayvon Martin’s twitter account, which was deleted after his death, no doubt because it made him look perfectly awful, has now surfaced. What follows is more current picture of Trayvon Martin and 20 of his tweets that stuck out. Under normal circumstances, these tweets wouldn’t be all that important, but given the media narrative, which is that Martin was a harmless little cherub who was pursued and killed for no other reason than because he was black, it’s worth noting that there might be a lot more to the story.
That story starts with the name of his Twitter account, “No_Limit_N*gga” (I put an asterisk in there that’s not in the actual name to keep it from showing up in search engines). The tweets come courtesy of the Daily Caller.

But these ignorant ass Negro legislators are more concerned about being perceived as “down with the cause” rather than dealing with real issues. Fucking idiots!

Meet The Real Trayvon Martin: Evidence Emerges He Was A Drug Dealer And Gang Banger


FYI - Folks also keep this in mind. I’ve read and heard that some of the pics being posted on websites may NOT be of Trayvon Martin.  
 

Multiple suspensions paint complicated portrait of Trayvon Martin
In October, a school police investigator said he saw Trayvon on the school surveillance camera in an unauthorized area “hiding and being suspicious.” Then he said he saw Trayvon mark up a door with “W.T.F” — an acronym for “what the f---.” The officer said he found Trayvon the next day and went through his book bag in search of the graffiti marker.

Instead the officer reported he found women’s jewelry and a screwdriver that he described as a “burglary tool,” according to a Miami-Dade Schools Police report obtained by The Miami Herald. Word of the incident came as the family’s lawyer acknowledged that the boy was suspended in February for getting caught with an empty bag with traces of marijuana, which he called “irrelevant” and an attempt to demonize a victim.

Trayvon’s backpack contained 12 pieces of jewelry, in addition to a watch and a large flathead screwdriver, according to the report, which described silver wedding bands and earrings with diamonds.
Trayvon was asked if the jewelry belonged to his family or a girlfriend.
“Martin replied it’s not mine. A friend gave it to me,” he responded, according to the report. Trayvon declined to name the friend.

  Trayvon Martin Family Criticize Information Leaks - News One 
SANFORD, Fla. — The parents of a slain Florida teenager are blaming police for leaking information about their son being suspended for marijuana and details about the fight he had with the shooter that portrayed the teen as the aggressor.
 Those of you who check out this blog from time to time know I usually don’t focus to much on stories like this because to be honest this country is facing a far greater crisis… Obama.

In a couple of earlier posts I highlighted some incidences I was involved in as a young kid and teenager. I was well behaved, was a decent student, had never been suspended, had never been in trouble with the police and I behaved as my parents taught me to behave mindful of my actions and respectful of adults.
I was not the perfect kid but I did not steal from anyone ever, never engaged in vandalism or any type and I tried to be mindful not to do anything that would embarrass my parents or my family.
When I became an instant dad I raised my son the best way I could. His biological father did not want to have anything to do with him. The unfortunate thing is I knew early on that he was going to be a problem and I was always on his ass about everything from his behavior in school to his grades.
When he became a teen he engaged in all sorts of questionable behaviors, including theft and even stealing from his mother which she kept from me.
He stole some very valuable sports jackets from me and sold it to friends, and soon after started to take items from his friends’ homes.
When I found some stolen items buried in the backyard I called the police on his ass. A few years later I called the police on him when my wife called me at work saying “I smelled something strange coming out of our son’s room” I was like call the fucking police on him, but she refused.
So I came home and beat his ass and then I called the police.
It would take me all day to write out all of the issues I had with my son but the bottom line is his ass sure as hell would have ended up like the Martin kid. However while he would not be shot he did eventually go to juvenile detention and then later to jail.
A lot of black single mothers are in fucking denial like my ex was and paint their kids particularly their son’s as little angels.
I heard an interview with Trayvon’s mother and attorney saying that all of the 411 now coming out on racist right wing websites and blogs like yours truly are trying to paint Trayvon in a negative light and has nothing to do with what ultimately happened but his past behavior had everything to do with what happened.
Common fucking sense tells you that the more you engage in questionable behavior at some point you will indeed pay for those transgressions at some point.
I know it is not just black parents who are in denial when it comes to how they view their kids but we all know that there will be more Trayvon Martin incidences down the road. The question is what type of parent will you be, the one who keeps their head in the sand and refuses to see reality which will no doubt lead to their kid possible being shot and killed or at the very least incarcerated? Or the one who will have “the talk” who will have the an honest conversation with their child on how NOT to be like Trayvon.
His parents bitching that his past behavior and actions had nothing to do with his death is just flat foolish.                  
 NOLA Cop: Trayvon Lived Like A Thug and He Died Like One - News One
 New Orleans police officer, Jason Giroir, 35, has been suspended indefinitely without pay for making disparaging remarks about 17-year-old Trayvon Martin online, reports NOLA.com.
 
In response to a comment posted Sunday on WWL-TV.com on a story about Trayvon, who was unarmed when he was gunned down by George Zimmerman, 28, Giroir said that the 17-year-old deserved to die:
“Act like a Thug Die like one!” he wrote.
Giroir’s wife echoed her husband’s sentiments on the same article:
“He acted like a thug and died like one,” she wrote.
When a commenter said that Giroir’s comments were racist, the veteran did not back down:
“… come on down to our town with a ‘Hoodie’ and you can join Martin in HELL and talk about your racist stories!”
Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas said that he is outraged by Giroir’s comments and that they do not  reflect the views of the New Orleans Police Department.
“To say I’m angry is an understatement. I’m furious,” Serpas said.
Giroir was placed on desk duty during a recent investigation after he killed a Black man during a routine traffic stop. Justin Sipp was in the car with his brother, Earl Sipp, when Giroir and two back-up officers claim that Justin opened fire and was subsequently killed. Once the investigation was complete, Giroir was returned to his post in the 8th district.

Trayvon Mother Moves To Trademark Name For Merchandise 
 MARCH 26–The mother of Trayvon Martin has filed two applications to secure trademarks containing her late son’s name, records show. Sybrina Fulton is seeking marks for the phrases “I Am Trayvon” and “Justice for Trayvon,” according to filings made last week with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. In both instances, Fulton, 46, is seeking the trademarks for use on “Digital materials, namely, CDs and DVDs featuring Trayvon Martin,” and other products.
Geraldo’s Point - Thomas Sowell 
It is not often that I agree with Geraldo Rivera, but recently he said something very practical and potentially life-saving, when he urged black and Hispanic parents not to let their children go around wearing hoodies.
There is no point in dressing like a hoodlum when you are not a hoodlum, even though that has become a fashion for some minority youths, including the teenager who was shot and killed in a confrontation in Florida. I don’t know the whole story of that tragedy, any more than those who are making loud noises in the media do, but that is something that we have trials for.
People have a right to dress any way they want to, but exercising that right is something that requires common sense, and common sense is something that parents should have, even if their children don’t always have it.
Many years ago, when I was a student at Harvard, there was a warning to all the students to avoid a nearby tough Irish neighborhood, where Harvard students had been attacked. It so happened that there was a black neighborhood on the other side of the Irish neighborhood that I had to pass through when I went to get my hair cut.
I never went through that Irish neighborhood dressed in the style of most Harvard students back then. I walked through that Irish neighborhood dressed like a black working man would be dressed — and I never had the slightest trouble the whole three years that I was at Harvard.
While I had a right to walk through that tough neighborhood dressed in a Brooks Brothers suit, if I wanted to — and if I could have afforded one, which I couldn’t — it made no sense for me to court needless dangers.
The man who shot the black teenager in Florida may be as guilty as sin, for all I know — or he may be innocent, for all I know. We pay taxes so that there can be judges and jurors who sort out the facts. We do not need Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton or the President of the United States spouting off before the trial has even begun. Have we forgotten the media’s rush to judgment in the Duke University “rape” case that blew up completely when the facts came out?
If the facts show that a teenager who was no threat to anyone was shot and killed, it will be time to call for the death penalty. But if the facts show that the shooter was innocent, then it will be time to call for people in the media and in politics to keep their big mouths shut until they know what they are talking about.
Playing with racial polarization is playing with fire.

 It Doesn't Matter If You're Black or White - Sultin Knish
 "It doesn't matter if you're black or white," Michael Jackson sang, even as he embarked on a journey to crudely transform himself from one to the other through plastic surgery. Around the same time a biracial man who had grown up in a white family was protesting on behalf of a vehemently racist black professor. That man, who would later make it to the Senate and then the White House, chose to identify as black.

 In the Chicago Tribune, Obama's hometown paper, its columnist, Leonard Pitts Jr, insists that George Zimmerman is white because race is a construct and whiteness is not color, but privilege, making it completely indistinguishable from class. To indict Zimmerman, who is Hispanic and part of a multi-racial family structure, as a white racist, Pitts is forced to argue that race isn't race. Anyone who is of the "oppressed of the earth" is really black and anyone who is privileged is white.

Witness Says Trayvon Martin Attacked George Zimmerman - Black Panthers post $10k reward for Zimmerman - Rightbloggers Find the Trayvon Martin Case Proof of Racism -- Against White People - The George Zimmerman Lynch Mob - The Politics of Tragedy - Roland Martin: “This is war”… “a call to arms” - Obama faces major enthusiasm gap compared to Bill Clinton in 1996 - Hey, remember when high gas prices were all Bush’s fault? - Handy Reference Guide to Obama’s Gaffes and Goofs


Good Morning folks, you know it is issues like this Trayvon Martin case that makes blogging interesting for me. It is like what my dad told me as a child basically that: “you may be the only contact some white people have with any black person.”
I know the vast majority of people who read this blog are indeed white and sometimes when I write things I do want people to know that my thinking may be contrary to that of most black people. That’s neither good nor bad, it just is. My opinions are mine they were not shaped by Afrocentric thinking, or conservative thinking. They were not shaped by the ranting and ravings of some self-proclaimed black leader or some self-appointed black spokesperson.
What has always pissed me off about black folks is this innate need to think with one mind, one voice, and one perceived logic. Black people can’t seemingly function as individuals draw their own conclusions nor have the ability to simply not rush to judgment. Their reactions to every damn thing all hinges on their ability to get over on whitey by any means necessary.
For the few black people who find this please don’t take this the wrong way, I’m not excusing whitey as many might believe, nor am I dismissing some gaps in perception of how black people are treated vs white people. This is not a perfect society but it has done damn good despite the constant and consistent failures of human beings.
This story has completely gotten out of hand and the coverage is ridiculous and to me almost embarrassing.
For those of you who truly seek justice for Treyvon Martin would be wise to reach out to those who don’t necessarily look like you. True justice can’t be effective unless it is colorblind and true justice can’t be achieved unless all facts are deciphered and processed.   
Only processing this issue from the black sides of the dividing line are only making things worse and you are no better than the commentary on white racist websites sites touting that this kid deserved it.

Just think for a moment, at some point a terrible tragedy will hit this country or your immediate community either in the form of a major natural disaster or terrorist attack. You black people who constantly and predictable want to castigate all white people and cry racism all fucking day for shit that just may not have anything to do with race… when that day of reckoning comes do we heal as Americans and deal with the tragedy together or separate and help only come to the aid of those who only look like we do.
Every damn time I hear some idiot black celebrity or athlete(s)ranting about injustice it make me vomit in my mouth because most are so fucking detached from reality they would not know justice if it bit them in the ass.
When black people were suffering due to the circumstances surround Katrina most of these idiot ass black celebrities sat on their asses and did nothing.

This is just another of countless issues that highlight the intellectual vacancy of society as a whole. Not only the short sidedness of black folks  but the blatant stupidity of a great number of self-proclaimed racists who gets a hard on every time America grows further and further apart racially.

Report: Witness Says Trayvon Martin Attacked George Zimmerman
A new witness to the Trayvon Martin shooting has come forward, claiming the Florida teen did in fact attack neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, according to media reports.
(Related: Report: New Audio Surfaces of Trayvon Martin Shooter
Zimmerman has said he shot the 17-year-old in self-defense, though Martin was reportedly carrying only a bag of Skittles and an iced tea when he was killed. Despite a loud national outcry, Zimmerman has not been arrested or charged in Martin’s death.
According to Tampa Bay Fox affiliate WTVT-TV, what the witness says he saw could bolster Zimmerman’s claim that he shot Martin in self-defense:
“The guy on the bottom who had a red sweater on was yelling to me: ‘help, help…and I told him to stop and I was calling 911,” he said.
Trayvon Martin was in a hoodie; Zimmerman was in red.
The witness only wanted to be identified as “John,” and didn’t not want to be shown on camera.
His statements to police were instrumental, because police backed up Zimmerman’s claims, saying those screams on the 911 call are those of Zimmerman.
“When I got upstairs and looked down, the guy who was on top beating up the other guy, was the one laying in the grass, and I believe he was dead at that point,” John said.

Black Panthers post $10k reward for Zimmerman - ABC News
Sanford, Fla - The announcement was made Saturday by new Black Panther leader Mikhail Muhammad during a rally in Sanford, Florida. Muhammad went on to say "An eye for an eye. A tooth for a tooth," when asked if the proposed bounty was an outright call for violence.
The rally was the third staged by the Black Panthers in two weeks since the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The shooter, 28-year-old George Zimmerman, served as the leader of a neighborhood watch group in a gated community in suburban Orlando. Zimmerman has yet to be arrested by police for the incident.
The Black Panthers called for Zimmerman's immediate arrest and threatened to seek him out themselves if police were not willing to do so. "If the government won't do the job, we'll do it," Muhammad said.

Roland Martin: “This is war”… “a call to arms” - American Freedom 
Whether we want to admit it or not, Trayvon Martin could be any of us. It doesn’t matter about our degrees. Our fine, tailored suits don’t matter. We’ve made all of the accommodations to fit into this society. We’ve cut our hair. We’re careful about the clothes we wear. We change the way we talk so as not to sound threatening. We’ve got our master’s, our Ph.D.’s. We’re fine, upstanding citizens. Yet, we still are seen as suspicious — and in the case of Trayvon Martin, end up dead.
The national outcry over this senseless tragedy has galvanized African-Americans and others in a way that we haven’t seen in some time. Some say this is this generation’s Emmett Till. Time will only tell if that’s the case.
But what we do know is that we are sick and tired of being seen as suspicious. We’re sick of tired of being seen as a stereotype and not as full human beings. We’re sick and tired of having to give our Black boys “The Talk” and still having to bury them so young.
Ladies and gentlemen, we are sick and tired of being sick and tired.

 The George Zimmerman Lynch Mob - Right Wing News
This week-end, Spike Lee retweeted George Zimmerman’s address, the Black Panthers put a $10,000 bounty on his head, Louis Farrakhan issued a vague threat, and there have been so many death threats on Twitter against Zimmerman that they’re almost impossible to count.
I’m not a fan of lynch mobs, no matter what color they happen to be — and that’s what this is turning into — a lynch mob.
George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin. He should stand trial for that. However, there’s a difference between putting a man on trial and declaring him to be guilty or worse yet, declaring him to be some kind of racist who shot an innocent kid to death for no good reason.
The fact of the matter is that a lot of the information that the mainstream media ran with in the beginning was wrong. Moreover, since then, a lot of key details are being left out. For example, Trayvon Martin is not the little kid in the pictures they’re showing. He was a 6’3, 140 pound football player who was on top of George Zimmerman, beating him. Zimmerman apparently did sustain significant injuries, called for help, and then at some point afterwards, shot Martin. That’s not to say Zimmerman is an angel in this. Even though he was the neighborhood watch captain, he shouldn’t have been following Martin in the first place — if he was following him. But, even if he was overzealous, does that mean Martin had free rein to attack him? Was Martin afraid for his life or was Zimmerman, as he says, actually walking back to his car when Martin attacked him?
This is actually a very sad, surprisingly ambiguous case that should have NEVER been made into a political football in the first place. Although Zimmerman should face a trial, it’s entirely possible that HE DID NOT break the law and doesn’t deserve to go to jail.

Rightbloggers Find the Trayvon Martin Case Proof of Racism -- Against White People - The Village Voice
 One of the enduring myths of American conservatism is that there's still racism in this country -- and it's suffered by white people at the hands of blacks and white liberal race-traitors.
Normal people who've been out of their homes a time or two will find that puzzling. But for rightbloggers it's a home truth.
Don't believe it? Feast your eyes on the rightblogger coverage of the Trayvon Martin case.
As you've probably heard, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot dead by 28-year-old George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida. The white shooter had called 911 to complain that a black guy was walking around his neighborhood, then opened fire.
There has been some dispute about what preceded the killing: An unnamed witness claims the 140-lb. Martin physically attacked the 240-lb. Zimmerman; no one knows for sure whether this happened before or after Martin saw the stranger coming at him with a gun.
What's not in dispute is that Martin was unarmed (though he was carrying Skittles and wearing a hoodie), and that Zimmerman was not arrested by the local police after he shot Martin dead.
This has expectedly enraged a lot of people who consider it one more in a long series of incidents in which white people have killed black people for nothing and gotten away with it.
Rightbloggers were enraged too -- that anyone felt sorry for the dead black kid rather than for the live white killer.
Their main argument was: Why does a white guy killing a black guy and getting away with it make you libtards think of racism?
Neil Boortz admitted that "as things look now," it seemed as if Zimmerman were "a law enforcement wannabe who was destined to end up in a controversy like this." He added that "Trayvon Martin's family says that they don't believe that their son would have been killed if it were not for the color of his skin. I believe they're right. "

The Politics of Tragedy - The American Spectator 
President Obama declared in a press conference Friday that Trayvon Martin, the 17-year old African-American student fatally shot by Florida neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in February, looks like his own hypothetical son. "If I had a son," Obama declared, "he would look like Trayvon." The racial implication of the president's statement was clear. The man who gained national prominence with a 2004 Democratic Convention speech calling for cultural unity stood in the Rose Garden of the White House and furthered the racial tension surrounding Martin's shooting. In a politicized national debate in which the Washington Post accused Zimmerman of "murder" and mainstream media writers call for the man's arrest, President Obama opined on an issue on which he -- like everyone else -- is not fully informed.

 Obama faces major enthusiasm gap compared to Bill Clinton in 1996 - Human Events
 A major sign of President Barack Obama’s weakness in his own political party base has been revealed in the president’s poor voter turnout in eight major presidential primaries so far this year.

Obama has won only 1,213,759 votes in 2012 compared to then-President Bill Clinton’s 1,695,756 in 1996 in eight state primaries where a fair comparison can be made.

Both candidates faced similar situations with weak or no opposition in these primaries with their names on the ballot. As the chart shows, when finally adjusted for voter registration changes since 1996, Obama in 2012 has only 56 percent of the Clinton vote in 1996. Overall Obama won only 4.5 percent of the registered voters in these eight states compared to Clinton’s 8.0 percent.

It is, of course, unknown if the trend will hold in coming contests, but the turnout evidence from primaries to date suggests vulnerabilities for the Obama campaign that other indicators of voter sentiment, such as polling, have not picked up.
Media blackout on Obama eligibility near-total - WND  
Even though almost half of registered voters tell pollsters they are not convinced Barack Obama’s birth certificate is authentic – and even though the first official U.S. law enforcement investigation into the matter established “probable cause” that the document released with great fanfare by the White House last April is a computer-generated forgery – a virtual media blackout remains in effect on the most controversial story of the Obama presidency.
Even when one of several bombshell findings of Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s six-month investigation into Obama’s constitutional eligibility was rated last week by Internet ranking service Alexa.com as one of the most-read news stories in the entire world – due almost entirely to coverage by WND and the Drudge Report – not only the establishment press, but most of the “conservative” media as well, looked the other way.

Treyvon Martin, What black people deal with, how some handle it, You don’t address racism by claiming every incident is racist... - Some Black forced to stay silent... - Are you born racist? Brown Eyes vs Blue Eyes - No matter what I KNOW some white people are never going to like me, but I won't lose sleep over it... - Zimmerman is not "the" problem - Humans are screwed up what else is new...

First here is part of a post by Boortz
Treyvon Martin’s family says that they don’t believe that their son would have been killed if it were not for the color of his skin.  I believe they’re right.

Many people, of course, are screaming racism on this one.  That’s understandable.  People scream racism any time there is a negative interaction between a black and a white person.  There is no evidence that I’ve seen here which indicates that Zimmerman harbored a belief in the genetic superiority of one race or another.  Bigotry may be involved however.  Perhaps Zimmerman just doesn’t like black people, though there is not yet any evidence of that.  The more likely scenario here is one of pure prejudice.  George Zimmerman saw a young black male in his neighborhood at night, and immediately pre-judged the situation, coming to the conclusion that Treyvon Martin was up to no good.
There is a tragic lesson here for neighborhood watch groups across the country.  You need to choose carefully the people you want involved in keeping an eye on the goings-on in your neighborhood.  Perhaps I’ve missed this in some story somewhere, but I get the impression that Zimmerman was completely self-appointed.  He may have seeking recognition as some sort of neighborhood hero.  Now I think it’s likely he will end up in jail.
The entire situation, as you would expect, is now being used by various race pimps and organizations to grab a little publicity for themselves while agitating the crowd and muddying the issue.  Foremost among these people is that race-baiting creep from New York City Al Sharpton.  The memory of Treyvon Martin, by all accounts an exemplary young man, is only soiled by the presence of Sharpton.  You remember the Tawana Brawley case, I’m sure.  But do you remember Freddy’s Fashion Mart?  Click on the link to see how some died as a result of Sharpton’s bigoted rhetoric.  And this is the type of guy you want to soil the memory of Treyvon Martin?  And then we have the New Black Panther Party and the New Black Liberation Militia.  They’re going to perform a citizen’s arrest of George Zimmerman.  Now THERE is where the “stand your ground” law would be in effect.
The death of Treyvon Martin was tragic and, I believe, chargeable as second-degree murder.  Let’s see what comes of the Grand Jury session on April 10th.
Old read but relevant... Whitewashing black racism; Shabazz: “Prepare for war” - Michelle Malkin

Folks I’m gonna expound on this race thing since it is obviously the hot topic of the day.

It is not rocket science that being prejudice is a natural condition of being human. We all have inherit likes and dislikes that come from the environment we grow up in as well as our instinctive, natural proclivity. We all have inherited attractions that we enjoy and repulsions that we suffer. Our preferences extend to perceptions of skin color, gender, size, and shape.
Lord help me if I were to find myself trapped in a burning building and helpless I would hope the firefighter (regardless of race and or background) that finds me will carry me out not thinking for a single moment about my skin shade.
Most of you would say that’s common sense, but is it?

A commenter stated: “You've been on the receiving end of some pretty nasty crap and came out a better person in spite of it. Not everyone survives as well as you have.”
People I have no idea how I survived and I would be lying if I said none of the actions I described did not bother me, many did.
I told many that the incident with my former father in law where he cried during a family gathering because he was unhappy that I was marrying his daughter.
It was likely the most humiliating moment of my life. What made the incident more insidious is everyone was consoling him.
Some family members came up to me and said “don’t worry about it” later but I honestly never felt so isolated and alone in all my life. I was in love, we were having a great family Thanksgiving gathering we were hosting and all seemed well. Oops!

I have been the lone Negro in countless situations, parties and various social gatherings, a few work places, numerous meetings, the lone member in countless philanthropic organizations, in churches, in a bar or nightspot and yes you feel the isolation and yes you process the stares and the odd looks as if I had no right to be there.

Folks I’m going to repeat for many black people this is normal in the daily course of our lives.
If you have never seen the following, some of you might remember watching in school the video “Brown eyes and Blue eyes” featuring JaneElliott valuable teaching aid.
Required watching for all white people frankly...

Societal prejudice and perceive isolation is exactly why many blacks choose to live in neighborhoods below their economic status, or would attend a substandard school because they simply would be more comfortable being around other black students.
I had a friend during my first marriage, he and his wife worked at Boeing in Wichita, both made low six figure incomes they could have lived in the most exclusive neighborhoods in Wichita and six figure incomes in the Midwest when you factor the cost of living is even more significant. They choose to live in a very modest home in a predominately black area.       
Many blacks may choose to live in a city that might be higher in crime or have limited economic opportunities but because the black population is more of their comfort level they settle there.

Then there are those like my dad who specifically choose the neighborhood he did (when I was a kid) because it was all white.
He even admitted that he in a way “made it” because he was able to infiltrate that insulated white world. Also his kids will be able see that they do indeed “belong” that you don’t have to segregate yourself out of fear.

So how I survived despite the issues I described below were simply because it was engrained in me that whitey was not better than me. I can live wherever I want, accomplish whatever I desired and my success are purely due to how high I was willing to reach in life. Now he was pragmatic, he did say to me at 8 or 9 years of age would or could whitey throw a speed bump in the road to success, sure. He simply said that in order to succeed you had to be just a little bit better than a white kid. Basically he said while this was not fair, just know that it exists but don’t use it as an excuse.

Now on how we (my brothers and I) conducted ourselves in the world, be polite, respectful, don’t be anyone’s punching bag but by the same token don’t be a fool, understand what battles are worth fighting.
The examples I gave about the police screwing with me, in every instance I never said a word, never talked back nor questioned.
Frankly in just about every instance of being dissed by some random white person I found it a little fascinating and perplexing at the same time.

Something else my father said and I have mentioned this before was key. He said basically that “you may be the first contact many white people have with any black people. How they treat you is not an indication of what they think of you but how they perceive all blacks based on past experiences or perception from afar.”
In essence people some of us black folks are societal test drones. The only black in a workplace, classroom, and neighborhood, after all were are only 13 percent of the population.
When I entered the Air Force many said that they had never been around any black people, never had any black friends, schoolmates or co-workers. So my dad prepped me well with those words.

In my office I am one of only two blacks however the other co-worker is rarely in the office at certain times of the year. I am treated differently; I’m not talked to as much people treat me differently. Are they being racist, no but this is no different than how I was treated by former family members especially when I would attend big family events. I was never treated like a loved family member except by a few people, I was treated like an acquaintance, welcomed by not embraced wholeheartedly. Were these people being racist, can’t answer that.

Again people I know the majority of people who read this blog are indeed white so I’m trying to give you and honest perspective from a guy who does NOT harbor animosity towards the entire white race. Why did some random black lady give you the evil eye or voiced displeasure with you out of something totally random or innocuous?
Why some black people are insolent, abrasive, and aloof? Why some are quick to blame whitey? Why some vote Democrat? And on the flip side, what stokes the racial animosity of people like Zimmerman?                  
Now after all of that, I am indeed prejudice hell we all are to a certain degree, however, I don’t allow my prejudice to overwhelm my ability to make rational decisions. My prejudice doesn’t entice me to hinder another gender, skin color, belief system, sexual orientation, or anyone else from having the ability to exist comfortably and equitably.

In a perfect world with an equal distribution of wealth, land, property, housing, government, the ability to generate income, educational resources, media production, media outlets, and other valuable resources that have become virtually inescapable because they are so interwoven into our lives, the ability of one culture to dominate, control, or manipulate another would be mitigated by each culture’s ability to provide for itself. But we don’t live in that world. Some like me choose to adapt while others fight a lifelong war to in essence to demand that equity.

One thing that is not talked about my race pimps and those who only seek to cast aspersions on others and not take responsibility for their actions ignore the fact that the very rawest racial conflicts in present-day America don’t even fit into the tidy mold of white majority oppressing only black folks that race pimps constantly promote. Though civil rights groups and most of the media studiously ignore this fact, the nation’s most fractious racial battles are now conflicts between minority populations.
I said yesterday I grew up with Mexicans for the most part hating blacks; most Asians don’t like blacks and vice-versa, and Africans who immigrated to America don’t particularly like “African-Americans” in fact many of you whites might be shocked to find that Africans think American blacks are inherently weak and inferior and don’t like blacks any better than many white folks do.
They are appalled by American blacks lack of emphasis on education, their ghetto culture and many are not sympathetic to the constant whining and blaming of whitey any more than any white racist would be.     

Folks in addition while growing up in California I witnessed some serious and horrific animosity directed at Asian kids. Hell black people call all Asians “Chinese” totally oblivious of the simple and obvious fact that not all Asians come from China.
In poor neighborhoods across this country Asians endure constant racial hatred because while black folks refuse to invest in a positive manner in their neighborhoods Asians move in a start businesses which angers blacks. This is why you have the constant battles between Asians store owners and black patrons. If you have never seen Spike Lee’s “Do The Right Thing.” rent it and you will understand. Just substitute an Asian convenience store owner with an Italian Pizza diner owner.       

The problem today with this Treyvon Martin and Zimmerman issue it is being used to rule out even the possibility of black racism and the celebration of black ghetto cultures negative influence on American society.
Activists like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson intone that racism equals “prejudice plus power,” and that since blacks in America lack power, they are simply not capable of practicing racism against anyone.
While we might be outraged by this incident, of course we should ALL OF US should… but this crap goes on all the time all over this nation and we never address the source of the problem.
Most angrily insists that racism is something suffered, not dished out, by blacks. Many black professors, writers, polemicists, and politicians repeat the same mantra. What might appear to be black racism actually boils down not to racism but to acts of crime and rudeness from the perpetrators and tough luck for the recipients.
Calling a Middle Eastern person a “towel head” or anyone of Asian descent a “chink” a Mexican a “wetback” ultimately, their arguments simply grease the skids for further traumatizing of “unlucky” victims. And to real-life casualties of racial animosity, motivation is not especially relevant.
Rationalizes of black racism ignore the fact that identical actions inflicted by whites would be universally decried as intolerable.  When we ignore the results are tragic because loss is loss, pain is pain and young innocent kids like Treyvon are caught up in the societal crossfire.

Remember I am the Uncle Tom when processing this last part:
 
The problem many blacks have is most don’t, won’t or can’t speak out against our own because to do so is sacrilege. While some choose to stay amongst their own kind out of comfort and security there are those that wish to get out of crime infested neighborhoods but are trapped by economic circumstances.
Detroit is likely the best example. Detroit in 1950 had 1,800,000 people and the highest per-capita income in the United States. Bad government and eventually high crime destroyed the city.
Detroit now has fewer than 800,000 people, over half their housing stock is unneeded, and they're 67th in per-capita income.
Virtually every major American city run by a liberal black individual suffers from runaway crime. Most black elected officials come from cities, towns, districts that are above their area average in crime, lower job opportunities and substandard educational standards. Zimmermann is hardly the source of the problem no matter how theatrical the outrage gets.
Black ignore the following:  Feds: 49% Of Murder Victims Are Black Men

and "most of the black murder victims — 93 percent — were killed by other black people."

The thing that bothers me is why black people don’t get more outraged and take to the streets when a random young black man is killed by another young black man?
I am far more likely to be killed by another black man than I am some random white guy.
I have had two family member killed by other blacks.
My brother was mugged and almost killed after a robbery by a black man.
My father was mugged and almost killed by several black men who robbed him.
I’ve had two friends (black) killed by other black men.
Now while these folks are calling for Zimmerman’s head and rightly so, the next time you turn on the news and a black man is murdered and you see that the perpetrator of the crime was also indeed black will you see the same outage? If not ask yourself why?
