Race and justice

In the census, or in applying for college, or in a company/university diversity count for government perks, George Zimmerman is Hispanic (1/2), if he and all descendants married European Americans, his children (1/4), and his grandchildren (1/8) would all be Hispanic. But for political purposes and media ratings, he is suddenly white, not because of his mother's ethnicity, but because of his father's surname. Obama, meanwhile with a black father and white mother, remains black.


I was  appalled at the racist black commentators on NBC (9 a.m.) this morning who have to reach back 60-70 years for examples (to Democrat Jim Crow and Democrat KKK) of blacks on trial and injustice for blacks. No concern at all about the majority of murdered blacks who are killed by blacks, and no faith in the evidence where the prosecution said "go with your heart," (and not the evidence). Where are the calls for justice for black murder victims in Chicago and DC? No concern from these two guys that they are willing to railroad a Hispanic into a jail term. But then, it was NBC that altered the 911 tape to bias its reporting, and then got caught.

According to the Bureau of Justice, most of the black murder victims — 93 percent — were killed by other black people, whereas about 85 percent of white victims were slain by other white people. This would not influence the two NBC men stuck in the 1940s--it wouldn't fit their argument. And among young (17-29 year olds) men, the difference is about 20 percentage points.

Update: On NBC Georgetown professor and professional race-baiter Michael Eric Dyson made the comparison that the reaction by those who advocated for a guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial is like Americans’ reaction to terrorism after 9/11.

sometimes things do not change they just take another tact Racism is alive and well here and you certainly are doing all you can to help it along all the while pointing blame on the very ones that are the vicims of it you will probably never see it but I would think some of the time spent in church pews should have made for better understanding on this issue hummmmmm

So it is racist to point out that some people make their living whipping up hate and racial tension? Ah yes, the old spend more time in the church pews argument. Gotta love the liberals, who of course, would never point fingers.

Zimmerman is also biracial black--I believe his mother's grandfather was black. So he is Indian, black and European, but they attack him for racial profiling.

Maybe you'll take the word from a black man, since obviously I couldn't possibly know.

Who Is Racist? Short article by Thomas Sowell.
Excerpt: "The time is long overdue to stop looking for progress through racial or ethnic leaders. Such leaders have too many incentives to promote polarizing attitudes and actions that are counterproductive for minorities and disastrous for the country."

Murray sez:
Anon #1 & 2. Did you notice that the liberal press, as well as most blacks, portrayed Zimmerman as "white" and Trayon as a little kid with candy?
Now why do you supposed they did that?

Skittles (and other similar candies) are mixed with cough medicine and power drinks to make a non-alcholic mind altering drink. I didn't want to post the formula, but have seen it on the internet.
