Trayvon Martin Circus Reveals Race Card Bankruptcy

Pages: 1 2

The Trayvon Martin case is a wholly familiar one to residents of any major urban city. If you live in Chicago, New York or Los Angeles, then it’s only a matter of time until an incident between a law enforcement officer, or more rarely a civilian defending himself, and a member of a minority group flares up into a citywide grievance theater complete with angry reverends on the steps of City Hall, women with stony faces holding up banners calling for justice and a media driven debate about police tactics and racism.

This sort of thing happens with depressing regularity in cities where even the most liberal residents have to choose between police overreach and being murdered. It never leads to meaningful debate or a resolution, instead it peters out with the best actors in the grievance theater picking up money and influence, the media selling a few more papers or ads for nasal polyp relief on the drive time news and everything going back to the way it was.

The grievance theater is never really about the specific case, the specific shooting; it’s about the links between the social problems of the black community, the compromises of civil liberties necessary to keep entire cities from turning into Detroit and the inability of the media to address the sources of crime as anything but the phantoms of white racism. It’s about a black leadership that is more interested in posturing as angry activists and shaking loose some money, than in healing their own community’s problems. And so the same story repeats itself again and again without an honest dialogue or anything meaningful coming out of it.

The Grievance Theater has been going national. It’s no longer just extraordinary cases like Bernie Goetz’s Death Wish moment on the number 2 train that briefly catch hold of the national conversation. The obsessive coverage of the so-called Jena 6 case, an incident of so little internal meaning, signaled that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would no longer just be able to drive a local controversy; they now had the freedom to drive national controversies any time they wanted to.

Trayvon Martin is their big moment. It’s no longer just Grievance Theater being used to influence the political fortunes of a municipal election, the way that Howard Beach was used to bring down Mayor Koch and replace him with the execrable David Dinkins. Now it’s being used as part of a presidential campaign on a national level.

The fortunes of too many black politicians have been tied to white guilt and black rage. The worst sort of black politician channels black rage to score points with black supporters while playing on the guilt of white voters, promising to heal the social conditions that bring about that anger and protect them from its ravages. But never before has that game been played out of the Oval Office.

The last two Democratic presidents were southern governors, but the current occupant is a veteran of the corrupt urban political machine where there are only two games in town and when the money runs out, this is the one you play. The money is running out, the polls are running down and accordingly we have been treated to an episode of Grievance Theater, with our beloved leader in the role of healer and inciter.

Obama helped Al Sharpton achieve an unprecedented national profile in order to marshal that part of his base which cares less about jobs, than about finding someone to blame. The Trayvon Martin circus is a bullhorn urging all of us, black or white, to stop focusing on the economy and start focusing on race.

It’s Community Activism 101 to divide and conquer the electorate by breaking them down and feeding local anxieties, whether it’s about birth control or racial injustice. And it’s a win-win for Obama, who at worst gains a distraction from economic turmoil and a few thousand guilty voters and at best, upends the national dialogue by asserting the dominance of the racial narrative. While his associates wield the bullhorns, he carefully plays healer and if there is violence, then his currency as racial healer increases.

What does it say about America that what was once a form of political theater rising out of the grimy urban blocks of the failed city is now a national art form? Nothing good. A local dysfunction has become a national dysfunction, not because every city has become New York and Chicago, but because the people at the center of power hail from New York and Chicago.

Our racial dysfunction has always been secondary to our political dysfunction and now our political dysfunction is second to none. We have the best government that Warren Buffett’s money could buy and that ACORN’s election fraud can achieve. And we have a national government that is starting to look like the dysfunctional urban governments at the center of the grievance theaters.

    There is one card in the deck that is mightier than the race trump card, and that's the Islamic trump card. All that's needed to get the MSM and the leftist pols off Zimmerman's back is for Zimmerman to reveal that he's Moslem, and that Trayvon had insulted "the Prophet of Allah". At once the media and the leftist pols, including most of the black pols, would switch from being Zimmerman's accusers to being his defenders.

    • Grayzel1

      This is not an attack on you but on the terms we have allowed to creep into the English language. The race card is one of these terms that bothers me the most. We as a people have allowed media and political correct words to influence how we think. The list is long but I think the most offensive is "the" United States when in actuality we are "These" United States.

  • Nick Shaw

    Mr. Greenfield, I don't think I have to tell you the race hustlers, progressive hucksters and liberals (can't forget the liberals, can we?) will be shocked, shocked I tell you, that all of their whining, complaining and plaintive sobbing for "social justice" boils down to a few talented ones (and by talented, I mean those better equipped to make suckers out of the rest) wanting to take money baths and pick up chicks at will (that's an expression of power in case you didn't know;-)
    Am I (and you ) disappointed that this kind of snake oil salesmanship is still practiced successfully?
    I certainly am!
    I thought we had grown more sophisticated than the time my dear departed mother was being bamboozled by a vacuum cleaner salesman using a trick of science so lame that I, an eleven year old had to tell her it was a scam. That a vacuum cleaner cannot pick up a bowling ball ( I won't bother with the rest of the story).
    We haven't!
    Bamboozling is alive, well and the great unwashed are no more sophisticated, despite the availability of an untold wealth of information on the intertubz, than they were 50 years ago.
    Sometimes, it makes me want to weep!
    Other times, I just want to smack some sense into people!
    I feel something wicked is coming down the pipe. It will be brutal and bloody, I think but, mercifully, short.

    • patriot grandma

      or even worse , it will be unmercifully dragged out because we don't have the core of belief values as were found in our founding fathers and we will allow it to drag on until it effects us directly and by then we will alone with no one to stand for us. We MUST speak now. Read the constitution study the words of those who complied it, take their advice and turn back to GOD and then have the faith to stand for the truth. LIBERTY is the truth of GOD.Government has no place in charity . Charity is FREE WILL giving Not forced redistribution!!

    Why shouldn't US Blacks play the race card and invoke slavery, both native, historic US issues? Jews play the anti-Semitism card and invoke the Holocaust to demand support of Israel, both being foreign affairs with no connection to US history.

    • Zionista

      Only deranged Jew haters have the compulsion to connect Judaism and Israel to everything. You really should discuss this obsession with a good shrink.

      • crackerjack

        And why is there a Holocaust museum in Washington but no museum covering US slavery or the genocide od native Americans. Was the holocaust a US national affair?

        • Western Canadian

          Do you really think the africans who captured members of rival tribes to sell into slavery, or the muslims who captured africans (and everyone else) to sell as slaves would tolerate it??

          • OMG

            Oh my god, someone who actually knows how the slave trade was conducted!

            I didn't know anyone else existed. I thought the entire rest of the world was under the impression that the mean ol' white devil americans got on their boats and sailed to africa to pick out their slaves

    • kentatwater

      Nice apples and oranges you got there.

      Why shouldn't US Blacks play the race card and invoke slavery, both native, historic US issues? (emphasis mine)

      Uh, what? WRT the Race Card, that statement is meaninglessly self-referential. You might as well say "waffles, because of waffles."

      As far as slavery and the holocaust goes…how about this: let's have every survivor of each get, what their fellows unilaterally believe is their due? Sound good?

      /sarc off

      AFAIK, the argument for the US's support of Israel is predicated on Israel being the only democracy in the Middle East. Never mind that Israel generates a steady supply of military tech which benefits the US and her allies, as well as producing a host of dual-use, medical, and other high tech products. Also never mind, that the dominant and hostile religion in the states surrounding Israel, is the same religion which prevails in the countries where slavery is still openly practiced.

      Let's contrast the loan guarantees for Israel, with a parallel action on the part of the US government, in the form of the Community Reinvestment Act. Which endeavor has yielded the most fruit?

      Oh wait, that's right. Jews control the banks, so it was all a set-up.

      Hmm. Seems I had a little /sarc left over.

    • mrbean

      Once again Crackpot Jack spews forth his anti semitism. His ignorance is on display every time he posts his nonsense. Blacks whenever playing the race card indicate that it is Blacks who are the racists. White people owe blacks nothing other than doubts about their abilities to form civilized societies. Do us all a favor and assume room temperature.

      • Ghostwriter

        While I'm in agreement with you about crackerjack's anti-semitic bilge,you once again assume that blacks aren't intelligent people or attacking their ability to function in a civilized society. That is just as bad as crackerjack's anti-semitic garbage and that is vile in and of itself.

      • crackerjack

        If white people owe blacks nothing, Germans owe Jews nothing.

        • santababy

          I've never heard a Jew ask Germany for anything. All they ask is for the world to remember so that it never happens again to any people, and strangely enough the Holocaust stories used to make Americans sick to see such hatred for a specific group of human beings. Now anti-Semitic remarks are hurled daily at any OWS occupation and apparently on this website. Can we not stop the hate?

          • Dennis X

            I do believe that Germany did pay jews reparations.

    • JakeTobias

      One reason they should not, is because the victims and perpetrators of slavery are long dead. Some of the victims of the Holocaust are still alive. When the last of them are gone, the claim of victim-hood is gone. I do not expect that to really happen of course, but it will have less power. Or it should. Plus, Blacks in America are not a separate country. Israel is, and on guard against a genuine threat. It is true there is still some racism, but America has recently elected a Black president. I hope you are not going to complain, not everyone voting for him is proof of racism. I did not vote for President Obama because he said he is a progressive. I think progressivism does not work.

      Unfortunately victim-hood gets attention, and consideration. I think both the Jews, and Blacks, should cool it with victim-hood. If our economy collapses we will all be victims together. But crying about it will not end such a depression.

And if anyone thnks the ogilarchs are innocent , I'll quote a phrase , a meme , that's used and wornout by all sides …."follow the money " !! And in the meantime , the reality of it all is " do like I say ,not as I do " ..".what's good for the goose is not necessarily good for the gander " .From Rush to Media matters , an endless cacophany of charges and counter charges , accusation and innuendo , propaganda ,rhetoric and political meme's ….are rained down upon a really DUIMBED-DOWN electorate , which votes not by facts , correct information and reality , but by EMOTION , paranoia , misinformation and in most cases out and out lies or half truths . All for the sake of self-perpetuation on the part of all politicians ..yea all . Well , you reap what you sow , divided we stand …but for how long ?

      The shootings in Chicago (where innocent children were killed) were no "mere issue" either, but they were not the fodder the media selects, but worse ignores as if those people never lived! This doesn't stoke the flames adequately! Neither are Black Panthers who 3.5 YEARS AGO blatantly brandished billy clubs in front of a polling place. I'll agree that one month, especially to the bereaved appears slow, but heck Amused, what about 3.5 years? No one got killed or hurt fortuately, but talk about ignoring blatant voter intimidation!

  • Steve Chavez

    WHERE IS LA RAZA? Aren't they going to defend Zimmerman's Hispanic half? This case is right up their alley but then again, they'd have to go against their racist friends, the Panthers and all the race pimps that they are in bed with as long as they go after whites so I guess they'll team up to only go after Zimmerman's White half who will be lynched to the nearest tree like a pinata!

    Zimmerman a "WHITE HISPANIC?" Then OBAMA is a "White Black, White Negro?" I guess then my former Governor Bill Richardson is a "White Hispanic" too and then Obama and Bill will change the labels to "Black White, Negro White," and "Hispanic White" according to the group they have to pander to and who they have to change their slang.

    • sharpsrifle

      La Raza isn't a Hispanic or Latino organization…it's a MEXICAN organization. As far as La Raza is concerned, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, Peruvians, Spanish, and all the rest, can go straight to Hell. They'd only be standing up for Zimmermann if he were named Lopez and were from Guadalajara.

      • Kevin Stowell

        True dat. I lived in El Paso for ten years and was often amazed at some of the crap the "leadership" would say.

  • tagalog

    When the writer talks about the lack of honest dialogue on race, he's missing the point; there is no honest dialogue on race in any nation where racial issues have arisen, not just the United States.

    This is because there is a black view of what is going on, and a white view of what is going on. For whites, the situation is that sub-Saharan blacks have been oppressed, that has largely stopped except for Muslims enslaving African blacks (and others), and we would like to move on and eventually see the last lingerings of white racial hatred fade away with the passage of time. For blacks, oppression of blacks is a present Holocaust with all sorts of victims facing all sorts of criminal mistreatment and it's all the fault of white Christians, mostly American. So the black hatred for the white race intensifies.

    There is an interesting incongruity involved in this: some blacks, disgusted with the perceived anti-black racism of Christianity (which actually provided a foundation for abolishing slavery 200 years ago), embrace Islam, whose acolytes continue to this day to enslave African blacks. But let that go.

    The memory of what real American white hatred of blacks involved has faded to the point of near-total obscurity, so white spasms appear to blacks like a reprise of Bull Connor and the dogs and firehoses. In the meantime, a sense of rising entitlement has caused black-on-white violence to increase until such incidents far outnumber white-on-black acts of violence. But you wouldn't know it from listening to Al Sharpton.

    Those two visions will not readily accommodate themselves to one another, and so racial hatred will continue to smolder for the foreseeable future.

      Forty-plus years ago, while I was still in college, a friendly Black acquaintance dropped the Western name to which he was born, telling all and sundry that it was a "slave name," and asked people to call him henceforth by his adopted Arabic name. I was present in class when a Black professor rebuked him for adopting a slave-trader's name.

    With his several large tatoos, gold capped teeth, drug use and numerous school suspensions for bad behavior Trayvon Martin was likely an out of control, wise a$$ little punk-a rude wanna be degenerate gang banger, a rebel thumbing his nose at authority and society-who copped a bad attitude and flew into a rage when George Zimmerman was doing his job and watching him the night he unfortunately died. He was probably the type of thuggish, troubled, insecure kid who thinks he's being belittled, disrespected and wronged when someone looks at him funny, and then reacts aggressively with violent words or deeds to prove his manhood and win respect and honor.


    • KarshiKhanabad

      At last, words of truth about Trayvon Martin. Politically incorrect words. That's what makes them truthful. Bravo, sir.

    • digdigby

      But….didn't you see his adorable picture! (from years ago) next to the ugliest scariest picture of Zimmerman they could find? For me the great turning point in this country is when these two 'wish fulfillment images' saturated all forms of media in one day and ever since have been used to manipulate a near-idiotic populace into participating in this latest installment of American Race Theater. The Fourth estate, the free press is DEAD.

      • ApolloSpeaks

        That young foolish reckless man killed himself. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong attitude confronting the wrong dude.

  • ApolloSpeaks

    If, on the night of his death, Tray was doing nothing wrong it is understandable that he might feel offended at Zimmerman for watching him suspiciously; but instead, unprovoked, Tray went ballistic and viciously attacked him as if he were being threatened, molestered or slapped down. In short, Tray wasn't going to let Zimmerman get away with that sh*t; his crude gangsta street code wouldn't allow it; and now he's dead blown away by his victim in self-defense. The lesson here is this: when someone looks at you funny be cool, be a man, keep your head on your shoulders and ignore it. It might save your life.

  • BLJ

    The Bigotry of Low Expectations is a huge problem in Black America. Far too many blacks are taught that they are victims from the get-go in life. Any setbacks or failures are a result of "The Man" or "The System".

    The so called leaders of Black America (why in the hell there need to be any is beyond me) are terrified if any black person decides to take ownership of their own life. These folks are labeled Uncle Tom's or worse. They are ostracized as well.

    I once worked with a black guy who was really motivated to succeed at our company. He was very bright and a hard worker. His future at the company looked promising.

    One day we were eating lunch together and a table of other black employees was glaring at us. He told me that they were mad at him for "selling out". To his credit he stayed focused on his goals and is now an upper level manager at that company.

      Oh so your Black now, you know how Black People think , feel and need, you couldn't be Black for a mintue.

  • Touchstone

    Most ethnic, national or religious groups contain elements which discredit them and bring their names into ill repute. The most prominent example worldwide are the radical jihadis who make every Muslim look like a dangerous fanatic. Today we're witnessing American blacks shamed by far too many race hustlers and disgruntled bigots who are all too anxious to start a race war and join a lynch mob. My heart goes out to people like Mr. Bryant, former head of the NAACP, who boldly criticized the shameful way Sharpton and others chose to handle the Trayvon case.

    I wonder what Bryant thinks about Spike Lee, who fully revealed the ugly hatred that rots his heart. For a man who made a movie called "Do the Right Thing", he did precisely the WRONG thing by not only directing a vengeful mob to the wrong place, but by aiding and abetting a lynch mob in the first place. I'm just floored by what he did, and by the jaw-dropping hypocrisy on display these last few days. After all, where's the outrage for the far more numerous black-on-black killings? This would be a non-story if Trayvon's killer had been black.

    I've rarely seen so many people at once collectively abandon reason and join a rabid, verbal lynch mob, soon to be a physical one if men like Sharpton, Malik Shabbaz, and Farrakhan get their way. The voices of decent, reasonable men like Bryant need to be strengthened at a time like this. He stuck his neck out and deserves a show of solidarity.

    Brilliant analysis by Greenfield, by the way.

  • Schlomotion

    I marvel at Daniel Greenfield's conspiracy theory that black race hucksters from from "grimy city blocks" have "destroyed our cities and are hard at work to destroy the country" through the Oval Office, replacing good Jewish leaders like Ed Koch with "execrable" leaders like David Dinkins, and now a "compromise has to be struck between civil liberties" and black people turning the whole country into "another Detroit."

    This kind of Jewish racism you don't often get to hear openly. You hear it leveled toward Arabs every day, but you seldom hear the old-fashioned anti-Schwartzer racism that this Glazov-coronated "brilliant writer" spews.

  • kathy

    Mr. Greenfield, I think you have most excellently captured the entire race card scheme and why white America sheepishly goes along with it. (They're on the plantation now.) I think I'm going to start circulating some of Dr. King's own words regarding race. And let's just pray that radical muslims don't figure out a way to make us start feeling "guilty" next. This country has never been perfect, but it was in much better shape before this President took office. And now the grievance mentality has been given the throne. God help us survive it. Sometimes an old grievance can never be erased (because some won't let it go no matter how much they are appeased and besides, there is just too much profit in it for those given to evil motives)…it just becomes the whip that is continually used to keep others in submission.

    There is a movie out called the Watchmen. (good, not great reviews) In it there is a character called The Comedian. The guy insists on several occasions that “Life is a joke.” Not a funny kind of joke, more like black humor.

    Watching this street theater that is what I feel like. Like it is all a joke. The ordinary blacks, depending on personal insight, either believe in what they are doing or are just shaking the tree in the hope that a few more benefits will fall out. The black leadership is played by people who play at pious virtue even as they vary between exploitative and truly evil. And the whites? They just stand around and don’t say much because they do not want to be fingered as the exploiter, and collectively figure the best bet is to pay a little more mugger money because it is easier than confronting the mess before them.

    And the Joke? The Joke is that the whole thing is self defeating. The blacks can not play being the victim; they have to live being the victim. After all, if they got involved in the one thing that actually works, which is self help, they would undermine their victim status. So, they take their handout and their beating and go on ranting their helpless rage.

    It is a joke, don’t you see it. Just a joke. Too crazy, too disgusting to take seriously.

  • stephenx100

    The Trayvon affair will result in the triumph of the black racist view of the world,namely that blacks can only be victims. Regardless of what the facts ultimately reveal, even if they show that Zimmerman was being beaten and desperately resorted to use of his weapon, Trayvon Martin will remain a national hero. Americans have been thoroughly brainwashed to believe the mythology of black virtue, heroism and victimhood. Our culture as represented by the typical TV crime drama or Hollywood, bonanza, will always depict black characters as brilliant brain surgeons or pioneering heroic black jurists fighting for justice and the little guy. Even those who call themselves conservatives are thoroughly brainwashed to believe this mythology. They never notice that heinous crimes depicted in these products of the cultural media are never committed by ethnic Africans. The electorate will never be aware of the grotesque torture, rapes and murders that were committed by raging black criminals, especially since the media has avoided this story and others such as the hordes of young black mobs who compete to see who can kill a white or Asian victim with a single blow. Reason can never win when the populace is too brainwashed to realize what has been happening.

  • jacob

    Twice has our President come out withthe race card.
    The first time he regrettably had to pedal back and give the devil its dues and this time he jumped off the
    deep end and will live to regret it….

    I would like to ask him however, whether it was a National Disgrace what happened to this young boy
    but not a National Disgrace to him or to the Reverend of Hell what happened to these people of
    Louisiana at the hands of blacks or that white boy set on fire by two black bullies ???

    I wonder whether they are fully aware they are playing with fire….as he who plants winds, usually

    This Grievance Theatre is a bunch of crap. I am tired of this race card being played over and over again. Look at the cities run by Democrats. The problems have gotten worse since the 60's War on Poverty. Where has all this money gone???? Now, the agitators demand and demand and demand. Obama would like to make this an entitlement society, where his supporters are entitled to everything. They deserve it because of racial bigotry and hatred and oppression of the past. Well, I don't think any of us owned slaves or sold slaves in our lifetimes. Some may have participated in Jim Crow. But lest we forget, it was White voters who elected the people to Congress that passed the Civil Rights Legislation of the 60's and the 70's.

    Now to the issue at hand – the attempt of some to stir up a racial conflict that will get the country talking about race and not the economy. I believe YOU DO NOT WANT TO DO THIS, MR. PRESIDENT.

    What took place in Sanford was a tragedy. Naturally, Reverend Sharpton and Reverend Jackson were there to sitr up the passions of the Black comunity. I was wondering if they truly wanted justice or a lynching of Zimmerman before the investigation came back with the facts. The President weighted in as did the New Black Panthers, who placed a bounty on Zimmerman's head. Bounties???? Is this how we work all of a sudden????? Justice must be served. It is done by waiting for the results of the investigation and we go from there. Where is our President, Reverend Sharpton and Jackson on this bounty issue????

    In Chicago, 6 year old Aliyah Shell was sitting between her mother’s legs on the family’s Little Village front porch when shots rang out from a pickup truck. Aliyah was shot several times and died that afternoon at a hospital. She was Hispanic.

    Earlier this month in Kansas City, 13 year old Allen Goin was chased home from school by two older Black boys. They set him on fire on his porch while yelling racial comments that he " deserved it" because he is White.

    It is interesting that only now are we getting more information about the murder of these two British young men by a Black teenager named Shawn Tyson. Had it not been for the incidents in Sanford, we would probably never have heard much about them.

    Where are the marches? Where are the demonstrations? Where are the statements of outrage???? These people were people too. Where are "Reverends" Sharpton and Jackson???????????????

    While I expect nothing from Reverend Sharpton and Jackson about this, where is the call and statement by President Obama? Where is the President in speaking out about senseless deaths of ANY young people REGARDLESS of color???

    The media were, at first, trying to say it was a white on black incident. However, their narrative was foiled. It was an hispanic on black incindent. But the media are working overtime to keep this situation alive. They so much want it to be about race.

    Don't try to use Trayvon Martin's death as your poster child, Mr. President. The concept of race goes both ways. Guilt??? The people that use race should feel guilty. What have they done to improve their communities? Why a there so many black on black deaths????? Why not address them, Obama, Sharpton and Jackson??????

    Are we so divided that any violence must have a color or race attached to it???? Some believe it does and want it that way. Instead of united people are we to be divided along racial lines? Some want it this way and they are not all white? Are we headed down the road of racial intolerance and violence? Some people want that.

    Not only that if there was racial peace and harmony, what would they do with themselves???? How would they make a living????

    Jackson and Sharpton want to stir the pot, that means more power for them and their Liberal supporters. They have reliavance. If they are in government, it is the concept of divide and conquer. We, as a nation, should be well beyond this. This is the racial anger and intolerance of the 60's and the 70's revisited. Where are Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.'s ideas of his dream?????

    Blacks are ruinning America and every other place they go. They are intellectually inferior genetic refuse that are parasites in all the civilized societies they happen to infestate. They contaminate advanced cultures both socially and economically with their tribalism and lack of moral responsibility. There is no written language invented by blacks. Their native languages are nothing but gutteral grunts and jabber-babble. They have no history of science or art at any level. If it were not for whites they would have become an extinct race on their won eons ago. Their average lif expectancy in the African countries is between 32 and 43 with only South Africa in the 40's. Slavery still exists in the black tribes in Africa. What to do. Arm yourselves, because when Obama is defeated in November the roving gangs of black thugs will take to the streets attacking white people. ANd the Black leadership will egg them on!

      Read the proof. There are thousands of incidents like this that gor unreported by the MSM. PALMDALE, Calif. (AP) – Seven black teens have been arrested on suspicion that they committed a hate crime when they attacked a 15-year-old Hispanic boy while he was walking home from school in Southern California, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office. The March 14 beating in Palmdale was captured on video and posted on YouTube, but has since been removed from the site. The seven boys, ages 13 to 16, were arrested Wednesday for investigation of assault and committing a hate crime, Lt. Don Ford said. The attack happened near Cactus Middle School, but Ford didn't know if any of the teens involved were students there. The video shows as many as 10 boys surrounding the victim and challenging him to a fight. The suspects then began hitting the teen while others watched.

        Former Black Panther Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) made quite a fuss when he donned a "hoodie" during a speech in the U.S. House of Representatives until he was escorted out. At the time, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) "applauded his courage" for doing so. Meanwhile, back home in Rush's district, two men wearing hooded sweatshirts, or "hoodies," were the shooters in an incident that left one dead and five injured. In fact, during a span of six-hours Thursday night, 13 people were shot, leaving two dead in Chicago. It would seem it takes more courage to simply walk down the street in Rush's district than it does to wear a hooded sweatshirt in the House of Representatives by way of a stunt in a bizarre tribute to a young man shot and killed in Florida during a shooting incident still under investigation.

        13 shot, 2 dead in Chicago in six hours just this Thursday night CASE CLOSED!

    Operation Distraction……contraception, Limbaugh, TM…..what's next? No matter, Ryan's "budget" plan in an election year is so destructive that the party of stupid loses again.

    The whole media-generated Trayvon frenzy has been disgusting – especially Obama's reaction to it. The whole "he looks like my kid" line was ham-fisted, to put it nicely.

    It gets worse. With Obummer, it always does.

    Two British tourists (college kids) were recently murdered by a black man in Florida. The father has repeatedly tried to contact Obama and his administration.

    No response. Nothing. Maybe the grieving father would get a response if his murdered kids looked more like Barry B.

    I'm not one to accuse people of racism, but with Obama, the evidence keeps piling up.

    We need to spread this story. We need to DEMAND that Obama offer his condolences to the family.

      Everyday blacks gun down other blacks or Hispanics, Hispanic gang idiots shoot each other or white tourists, or black neighbors… goes on and on and on…and you never see that arrogant jerk Sharpton come running to stir up a mob……no….but if a presumptive white man shoots a black man….watch how fast Jackson and Sharpton are on the scene hollering and yelling about "victims of racism". Pathetic. In Oakland and Richmond California literally hundreds of people are shot every year…. I don't recall Mr. Sharpton EVER commenting or arriving on a jet to express his dismay. In PHiladelphia hundreds are shot to death. In Washington DC, Detroit, New York, Chicago bang bang bang day after day…..where is MR. Sharpton?????

      • Mister Right

        Where is Mr. Sharpton? He's counting the money from his race-card racket. He's a crook. Plain and simple.

  • Brian

    Gee it seems like only yesterday the Repub establishment was calling anyone that opposed affirmative action a vile racist knuckle dragging neanderthal. Repubs invented the race card.
