The Zimmerman Trial and Black Skin Privilege


bspThe trial of George Zimmerman is winding down with a meltdown of the prosecution’s case and lurid predictions of riots if a “politically correct” decision is not reached.  Why is it in America today that racial issues like this one so resemble the Wonderland world where, as the Red Queen famously says, “first the sentence, then the evidence”? Why is it that Americans consider blacks to be much more racist on the whole than whites, yet the latter is exclusively singled out for scorn? David Horowitz and John Perazzo provide answers in their pamphlet Black Skin Privilege, written not long after Zimmerman was arrested in connection with the Trayvon Martin death.  Here’s what Horowitz and Perazzo say:

In America today, blacks generally can conduct racist assaults on whites and count on “civil rights” activists and the media not to notice. In the two months following Trayvon Martin’s death, black assailants carried out at least 14 fourteen known attacks against white victims with the idea of “avenging” the fallen youth. In East Toledo, six juveniles beat a 78-year-old white man, shouting: “This is for Trayvon … Trayvon lives, white [man]. Kill that white [man]!” In Gainesville, five blacks shouting “Trayvon!” beat a 27-year-old white man, leaving his face permanently disfigured. In another Gainesville incident, a black crowd shouting “Trayvon!” assaulted and stomped on a white man who was trying to recover his female companion’s purse from the hands of a black thief. In Chicago, two black teenagers beat and robbed a 19-year-old white man because, as one of the attackers explained, they were angry about Trayvon Martin. In Baltimore, a group of blacks beat and robbed a white man, stripping him naked, then posted a video of the assault online with the caption: “me an my boys helped get justice fore trayvon.” In Mobile, a white man named Matthew Owens was brutalized by twenty African Americans armed with brass knuckles, bricks, chairs, bats and steel pipes after he asked them to stop playing basketball in the street directly in front of his home. As the assailants left the scene, one of them looked back at the victim, who was bleeding profusely, and shouted,: “Now that’s justice for Trayvon!” It is unlikely that many Americans have heard of these racial attacks, because the perpetrators are protected by a media that does not want to notice that the racists are black, and their victims are white.

Within weeks of the Trayvon Martin shooting, a parallel killing occurred with the skin colors reversed at a Taco Bell restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona. A 22-year-old black motorist got into an altercation with Daniel Adkins, a 29-year-old, mentally disabled “white Hispanic” who was walking by. When the argument grew heated, the motorist drew a gun and killed Adkins. When police arrived at the scene, the black shooter claimed that Adkins had swung a bat or metal pipe at him, although no such items were found at the scene. Arizona, like Florida, has a “Stand Your Ground” law that allows a person to use deadly force to protect himself when faced with a life-or-death confrontation. A protective media withheld the shooter’s name, and there was no racial mob calling for his head. Unlike George Zimmerman, the gunman was not arrested nor charged with a crime. Call that black skin privilege.

If you’re black and possibly guilty but a white person is involved, the media will actively volunteer to be your advocate…. In the Trayvon Martin case, the media withheld details of the crime that were damaging to Trayvon in order to protect him and indict Zimmerman — that the mainly white community he had entered at night had been the target of a rash of recent break-ins and burglaries by young African -American men; that the hoodie Trayvon was wore was a uniform for burglars; and that Trayvon had been suspended from school after burglary tools were discovered on his person along with unaccounted-for jewelry. At the same time, the press flooded the airwaves and front pages with sentimental photos of Trayvon as an innocent adolescent, while withholding others of the six-foot-two, 17-year-old who beat the smaller Zimmerman to the ground, smashing his head on the concrete and causing him to scream repeatedly for his life before he fired his gun in self-defense.

Looking at the Martin case, black skin privilege means you can form a lynch mob if the target is a “white” man and the press will overlook it; you can demand a judgment in advance of the facts, and can conclude his guilt in advance of a trial. You can even take “justice” into your own hands by threatening his life as the Black Panthers did to George Zimmerman or twittering his home address like vigilante filmmaker Spike Lee and comedienne Roseanne Barr did in the hope that someone might go after him. If this isn’t a rebirth of the cracker mentality of the segregated South, it is hard to know what would be…

    Political correctness is a form of thought and speech control. You will notice that it is only thoughts and words which liberals don’t like that fall under the guise of not being politically correct. They decide – you obey – or else.

    There should be no such thing as a word that people in a free society can’t say. Free speech is free speech. Anything else is controlled speech.

    As for skin color, only a collectivist/racist groups people by skin color and assigns values to them. Democrats tend to see people by which group they belong to rather than as individuals. This is collective thinking – the same thinking as a racist. Only Individualism as a human relational philosophy will cure this type of collective/group thinking. Free thinkers are always individualist.

    • tjke

      Excellent

    • J Simson

      Very insightful

    • dizzyizzy

      I agree too. Wrote to blogs about the collectivist origins of PC. http://clarespark.com/2013/06/30/the-origins-of-political-correctness-2/. “The origins of political correctness” (2). It has links to part one and other relevant blogs on this subject.

      • Judahlevi

        Great blog, Clare. Thanks for the link.

        I care less about where the term came from and more about how it is being used to limit/control our intellectual freedom. Too often, ideologues use back doors to limit freedom of thought or speech because they know they would never accomplish the same limitations using the front door. Such is the case of political correctness.

        • dizzyizzy

          The great threat of PC is its collectivist way of sorting people out: the individual is obliterated, let alone the dissenting individual. Such a one is associated with narcissism and hate. I.e., the dissenting individual must have all the negative characteristics assigned to Jews.

          • Earick Ward

            Individualism, our greatest virtue, is also our biggest [tactical] weakness. While we represent the vast “silent” majority, our efforts are not coordinated, as our Leftist brethren.

            If we could/can organize our individual efforts, collectively, we could/can begin to defend against the march of tyranny.

          • dizzyizzy

            The notion that collectivists are unified while Republicans are not is ridiculous. You have never been on the Left, apparently. Obama was elected not because of unity on the Left but because of liberal guilt and a machine-like operation. Solidarity of those who value the dissenting individual and supply-side economics is not an impossible dream. When POTUS stuck to the center on certain points, real leftists abandoned him and took to the streets.

          • Earick Ward

            “machine-like operation” – You discount your opening argument, by subsequently supporting my original assertion.

            As a top-down, command and control Ideology, when the Liberal Elite determine a path “forward”, they communicate their battle-plans down through the chain of command: Politicians/Legislator’s/Judges, Social/Cultural/Religuous leaders, Economists/Businesspersons, Academia, and Media.

            Do you notice that all of these entities are singing from exactly the same hymnal?

            Solidarity for the right is not an impossible task, but without a political/spiritual leader to coalesce our “Individual” energies, we will continue to suffer defeat.

          • dizzyizzy

            You think like a fascist.

    • jon

      What people are not realizing is that political correctness is just another Marxist agenda…Until people realize that Marxist science is behind all of the social conflict and expose Marxism the Marxists will continue to succeed in fundamentally transforming this nation and erasing its nationalism.

      • Ray Burke

        I must agree. Political correctness is thought control writ large.

    • Ray Burke

      Free thinkers are also rare. The collective/group syndrome is the norm.

    • demz taters

      How horrible that you have to exercise some self control and think twice before you say the first bigoted thing that comes into your head. Seriously you people are the biggest whiners on the planet. Grow up.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        It hurts the people they profess to help more than it hurts anyone else.

        Look, nobody is saying that the opposite of politically correct statements will always be true. That’s not it at all. The problem is that rather than guidelines offered in love, it’s about controlling speech to the point of outright lying, and sacrificing personal liberty for blatantly collectivist ideals based on Marxist fallacies (and derivatives).

        The left has gone insane in the last few years. I’ve given training on diversity training with valuable material. But most of the lunatics in that field are now completely unhinged. They seem to want to claim that no progress has been made and therefore they must ratchet up the intensity.

        This is about building a more powerful niche at the expense of the people they are claiming to help.

        And it’s not about self-control, it’s too often about pressure and making someone pay a price politically in order to score points and some times in order to advance evil agendas.

    • Nabuquduriuzhur

      Charleton Heston called it “polite tyranny”.

      It’s not so polite these days.

      It’s not just black privilege. When was the last time a true story on homosexuals was aired by our media on how they live? They are an extremely violent group, hurting themselves and others (I’ve lived in 3 places with large homosexual populations, and seen a lot of things our media won’t touch). They never report the massive bullying by homosexuals of other groups.

      Why is it all propaganda?

      An example happened in the late 1990s in Ashland, Oregon. (I used to live there). Two unknown homosexual women were murdered. The national media descended on the “hate crimes”. The women, who’d never been in the local papers that I knew of, were suddenly touted as community leaders by the national media. A witchhunt was brewing.

      Then an escaped inmate from Folsom was caught. He’d killed them for their truck.

      The national media left THAT DAY. No more was heard about the two “community leaders”.

      These two unknown women were still dead. Wasn’t that news? No, because it wasn’t a hate crime. The media could care less about a local murder by an escaped convict.

      What will our media say when their Judge, Jesus Christ, opens the books at the White Throne Judgement and all that they have done in service to evil is laid plain for all to see?

      • Ray Burke

        I would love to know the answer to that question.

    • DonaldYoungsRevenge

      The grand kahoonah of political correctness goes something like this. The NY Times labeled George Zimmerman a White/Hispanic. They were absolutely right, Zimmerman has a White/Jewish father and a Hispanic mother. Lets use that same criteria for this Fraud we have living in the White House. He is 50% White and 43.25% Arab (thus all the Arab names on Daddy’s side including his own) and 6.75% African/Negro. We have elected our “first White/Arab President” using the NY Times method of determination. If you tell a lie long enough it some how becomes a fabricated truth. When history finally make a determination that Barack H. Obama was the worse ever POTUS and possibly a fraud the media will have a frenzy attempting to make him our first “White Arab” President.

  • KHilde

    Left-wing academics have been publishing academic articles and lambasting (white) college students about the privilege they unconsciously enjoy, for easily 5 decades now.

    Strangely enough – - or maybe, expectedly enough – - one rarely hears of the value of having black skin, in terms of potentially being the recipient of affirmative action, or potentially being the recipient of an automatic presumption of “victim-hood” (the Trayvon matter shows that presumption rather starkly), or potentially being the recipient of an automatic presumption of nobility (Obama being a pretty clear example, at least when it came to the support he received the first time around in 2008).

    I guess all those T.V. commercials and T.V. shows – - where every black person shown was a doctor, rocket scientist, wise judge (see: wise Latina Sotomayor), or other upper middle class professional (see: the Cosby Show) – - have done what they were intended to do … and with apologies to “Sanford & Son” from left-winger Norman Lear – - what was he thinking? Shouldn’t it have been, “Dr. Sanford & Son”, a show about a Ph.D. who dealt in “antiques” rather than junk … ?

    In any event, I guess it would be close to impossible to accurately quantify the “value” of having white or black skin for comparison purposes. That is, no matter how allegedly “scientific” or “precise” some purported measurement or indices might be, there would be so many inherent biases depending on the politics of those conducting the inquiry, that any results would be next to useless – - something like the abortion debate: it’s not murder, it’s women’s health! versus it’s murder! – - the topic just doesn’t lend itself to a unarguable and final answer.

    And we all know how all those “scientific studies” and academic treatises in the social sciences which came out of the 1960s and 1970s, almost all turned out to be pure garbage (Communism will be the salvation of all the world’s nations!).

    But even lacking any “scientific quantifiable basis”, my guess is that … nowadays, in the industrialized world and the supposedly “first world nations” (all of which are sinking fast) … having black skin is arguably at least as valuable as, and probably more valuable than, having white skin.

    • Rocky Mountain

      I don’t know what your complaint about Cosby it – there are black doctors after all. I guess you would’ve been happier if he would’ve portrayed a hospital orderly?

      • JeffWRidge

        Oh, of course. KHide mentioning that Bill Cosby portrayed a doctor as an example of blacks being overly portrayed as professionals in entertainment must mean that KHide would have been happier if Cosby had been shown as a hospital orderly.

        Thank you for deciphering that. I personally couldn’t see the racism in the reference. I totally missed it. You’re sharp.

        Is a good thing KHide hadn’t referenced a homosexual character in “Will and Grace” being portrayed as a lawyer, instead of a hairdresser. Otherwise s/he might also be outed as a gay basher. KHide dodged a bullet there.

        I think you’re reading more into KHide’s comment than is merited.

      • tjke

        Many black doctors are very good like Dr Carson and the best black American is Allen West who is a colonel
        Nevertheless, there is quota at every college and University that guarantees 30% of the student must be black. It means that they are not at all good but they get in because they are black.

        • objectivefactsmatter

          It means there is more than a single standard for entrance and probably for graduation as well.

          That’s not good. Helping financially is one thing, but lowering standards doesn’t help anyone. It really doesn’t. There’s nothing good about it unless you want to destroy the civilization that accepts it as progress.

      • Paul of Alexandria

        The point was that they are always shown as upper-class professionals – a level that isn’t readily attainable for your average Joe in the audience. How about showing blacks as engineers, technicians, welders, plumbers, etc, etc – middle class people trying to make a living for themselves?

      • Ray Burke

        Very well expressed. Blacks are not about to recognize and accept the reality of their dysfunctional social order.

      • bluffcreek1967

        Some blacks, of course, are doctors, but there are relatively few of them in comparison to whites and Asians. This notion that our cities are filled with a mass of high-ranking black CEOs, black doctors, and all manner of black professionals in every conceivable field is sheer nonsense.

        There are some, yes, but nothing comparable to the amount of whites. And those who have managed to get in those positions, have got there in many cases (though not all) as a result of Affirmative Action.

        ‘The Cosby Show,’ just like ‘The George Lopez Show,’ are Hollywood’s version of how black and Hispanic families live in America, how they talk and interact, how they dress, and what sorts of things they value.

        But for the overwhelming majority of blacks and Hispanics, this is NOT how they actually live or interact among themselves. These shows, in reality, might have black and brown skinned actors, but the dialogue, the attire, and the type of interaction they engage in are ALL WHITE! These shows might be funny, but they are fairy tales.

        The average white guy who watches these shows and is gullible enough to think that this is how blacks and hispanics act, is in for a rude awakening. These shows are Hollywood’s ‘feel good’ version of ‘minorities’ to lull us into a mindset which dupes us into thinking ‘they’re just like us’! But they’re not.

        • Ray Burke

          Beautifully stated, bluffcreek. I greatly enjoyed the read.
          I,m sure we can expect the fairy tales to continue ad infinitum.

  • ElizabethMC

    Blacks are a protected group, except from each other. No one says much about Chicago.

    • quillerm

      Actually the only group in America that can be discriminated against are White Males. Which is the case in Federal Hiring practices. Federal Agencies are forced to hire and promote via racial quotas, with the exception of white males.

      • OfficialPro

        according to Identity Politics, that’s not “discrimination” because (in bizarro world) White Males hold all the power, are the “oppressor” and thus cannot be “discriminated against” because they have the power.

        • glpage

          I know that the left has defined racism and discrimination as being power based, but I have yet to find any dictionary that includes power in the definition of either word. Those who use their power based definition have never felt discrimination.

          Also, they seem to very willingly forget that Eric Holder wields a great deal of power as does Obama, so, using that idiot definition and completely ignoring race, those two cannot be discriminated against.

          • knowshistory

            you are attempting to introduce logic here. it doesn’t work. all blacks have been educated that they cannot be racist. you are wasting your time if you explain how racist behavior on their part is racist: they don’t believe you, and they know other whites will back them up, to say nothing of the media and government. all the arguments that blacks actually have enormous power, and whites have very little fall on deaf ears of people who are motivated to belived the lies. I thought it was a joke the first time I heard the claim that blacks cannot be racist. it wasn’t a joke. they actually believe it, and plenty of whites benefit from pretending that it is true.

          • glpage

            Your reply is kind of funny to me. I’m not disagreeing with you, it’s just that when I have had discussions with leftists they try to tell me I am being illogical even after I break down their arguments and explain the logic to them. Usually, when I ask if they have had any classes in formal logic they say no. to which I ask, “So, how do you know I’m being illogical.”

            I guess logic and reality is what they define it to be. Wasn’t that once regarded as being delusional?

          • knowshistory

            read my post. I did not say you are illogical. I said you are wasting logic on those who are illogical. you are in a pearls before swine situation. teaching logic to committed racists is as useful as trying to teach a dog calculus. a waste of time, but the dog isn’t as likely to bite.

          • glpage

            I didn’t say you were calling me illogical, I was pointing out that the leftists who love to throw that accusation about.

            To your point that I’m wasting logic on them… probably, but that’s the way I work. I refuse to lower my standards to theirs. Besides, I sometimes have the joy of watching them figuratively explode when they realize they aren’t as smart as they think they are.

            soooo true..It has become crystal clear to anyone watching this show trial, aka media circus, that the only person responsible

            all blacks have been so educated. a very, very few don’t agree with it, but they still got the education. what do you think “black studies” are all about? those whites I mentioned who are so eager to call other whites (they surely could not be racist themselves) racist? you fit the description. you are a white holder.

          • autdrew

            I was told this when I was in high school, in Detroit, in 1990. I said a blatantly racist, nation of islam follower was racist. She was always going on about the white devils, blue eyed devils (green!) wanting to kill all the whites etc. I was told the power definition. It made no sense then & no sense now. My school was about 70% black, the city about 85% and the city government close to 100% black but I was told they had no power.
            Silly me, up until that point, I had only heard that racism was hating or discriminating against someone based on their color or national origin.

            While unfortunately, I have to agree with you… I, personally have not seen the definition of racism being defined as white against any other race. Can someone please show where I can find a DEF. of racism that reads : only white ppl can be racist. Racism is color blind…

        • Brian Holland

          Can someone please show me where my power is. Just a quick example that proves your point even further. I have worked for the same company for 5 yrs now. The first 4 yrs I followed all the PC rules for retail and worked my way from the bottom up to Asst. Mgr. Once I got to asst. I was being groomed for store mgr. Within three years, I was passed over for promotion by 5 ppl which I trained to be asst.. The first three were because I am not bilingual(told by my DM. that I needed to take classes to learn spanish.) Then one day, I snapped. I had a visit by my Regional Mgr, Dm, and Divisional VP. They had just implemented a new program that was doomed to fail from the start due to poor planning and implementation. I was asked how I felt about this program and I told them the truth. I could make the program work, but only with a few minor tweeks. Two weeks later I was passed over again for a store that I was a perfect fit( told by my DM.) for an asst. who had been promoted to asst. only one week before. Then, My original store lost it’s Mgr. I was then passed over again, this time by a guy who wasn’t even an asst. (YES, he actually skipped a pos.) I was so pissed. I transfered and stepped down to a lower mgr. position and told the DM i no longer wanted to be promoted. Side note: Every one of the guys who promoted passed me were hispanic( I live in San Antonio, TX) In a nut shell… I was discriminated against because I’m not Hispanic.

      • ziggy zoggy

        Not quite. Asians/Mongolians are denied minority status and lumped in with Whites in many school admissions processes. That’s about it, though.

        • autdrew

          VERY true. The Asians Ive known who have gone through this find it both infuriating and hilarious. It IS racist when you think about it. Holding very high standards for whites/Asians and moderate to low standards for blacks/hispanics is the same as saying they dont think blacks/hispanics are equal or as capable. It IS racist!
          I come from the exact background. Teenaged parents, not married, raised on welfare in the inner city of Detroit, bad, dangerous school, poor, absent father with no child support, the whole nine yards. Yet the white kids in my circumstances were held to the same standards as the wealthier whites & asians when it came to college. My disadvantages were discounted. That is my problem with with racial preferences & affirmative action. I think if there must be affirmative action, it should be class based, not race based. Not all blacks/hispanics come from disadvantaged homes & not all white/asians come from wealthy ones with tiger moms

      • AmPlatt

        “Actually the only group in America that can be discriminated against are White Males.” True there.

    • Vance P. Frickey

      Eric Holder sure isn’t sending US Attorneys and FBI agents to lean on Mayor Jackson of Chicago to make sure each and every murder suspect in a black on black crime is tried for it. Probably because Barack Obama doesn’t care, either. If I were a racist, I’d think that was his white half keeping him from calling Eric Holder and demanding that Black people are every bit as well-protected from black assailants as white ones.

    • Ray Burke

      My initial reaction would be to encourage it. But then, that might be too harsh a suggestion.

  • Melinda Craig

    The strange thing is you do not see blacks attacking hispanics for justice for Martin, how is this about whites? can any black person explain to me why these attacks did not target hispanics, as Zimmerman is more hispanic than white, this just goes to prove that blacks have been programmed to hate whites and will stop at nothing to show their violence on them. and furthermore prove no matter what whites do they will always be hated by blacks and their kids or whites will never be safe around blacks.

    • krinks

      Propaganda. Show a picture of a black boy (even though Martin was 6 foot 3) and show Zimmerman as white (even though he is Hispanic) and you have a scandal. People are too stupid from watching Dancing With the Stars or that silly sl*t family’s reality show to know when they have been played.

    • Ray Gantt

      I have been watching the coverage from Fox news and they have characterized this as a white black issue. Martin who is dead is like OJ Simpson someone truly hated by white America. While Fox news has showered Zimmerman with constant sympathy, and has not shown that Zimmerman himself is no “Choir Boy”. Zimmerman having his own problems with the law incuding Domestic violence and assaulting a policeman. Fox news does not bring up those issues concerning Zimmerman. The conservative white media has ramped up coverage that demonizes Martin and done their best to be cheer leaders for Zimmerman. It has become a classic whites against blacks issue. Sides have formed, and it will not be good for this country.

      • Rocky Mountain

        From my perspective the ‘ramping up’ has come as a result of the left-wing media championing Martin. There has to be counter balance. Remember its the media – both right and left – that choose which stories to report on and amplify. It has been frequently pointed out that many stories get scant coverage for whatever reason while at the same time they bear similarities to the ones that get lots of coverage.

        • Ray Burke

          Left wing Martin, right wing Zimmerman. This entire episode has degenerated into a farce where everyone loses.

      • Shane

        Martin was trying to put a beat down on that “creepy-ass cracka” when the cracka shot him. It was self-defense.

      • glpage

        If the side supporting Martin hadn’t so virulently attacked Zimmerman, perhaps others wouldn’t be so one-sided in their support for him. The left first made this a white/black issue.

      • soundnfury

        You also failed to mention Zimmerman’s tutoring of young blacks, something that was conveniently left out of the media frenzy of this “white Hispanic” murdering a black “young boy”. But you knew that, didn’t you?

      • Ray Burke

        Sides were formed many years ago, Gantt, and will never change. So pick a side and hang on for the ride. The source of the problem is people acting like people always do. Destructively!!!!!

      • knowshistory

        to the degree that fox is conservative, which isn’t much, fox is forced to that position by the lyin media. when the media lies, which is almost always, the lies are to benefit the left. if any news media attempts to counterbalance the lyin media’s lies, they will end up looking conservative. fox media is not able to take a liberal position to correct the media’s lies, because the media’s lies are always leftist lies.

      • ziggy zoggy

        Ray Cant, Fox News has reported everything you mentioned about Zimmerman, though unlike you, it has done so factually. It has not demonized the thoroughly repulsive Martin in any way. “White America” does not hate Martin and the people who are glad he is dead are not glad because he was Black. We are glad because he was a lowlife scumbag at best and an an attempted murderer at worst. Most of widdle Twayvon’s cheerleaders are White leftists.

        This is not a Whites against Blacks issue. It is typical Black racism against Whites and insidious political correctness against everybody. It is already bad for the country – just like you.

    • Ray Gantt

      I think you are a little paranoid. I don’t know any blacks that hate whites. Not saying they are not out there. I do think you are way overly negatively generalizing about black Americans.

      • faithandhonor

        There are a LOT of blacks that hate whites, and black “Christians” who hate white Christians. I asked a big black woman at the doctors office, who said she couldn’t”stand to watch “that white boy on TV” if she wanted to have him lynched, and then if she acknowledged Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, and she said ‘yes”.

        Then I said, “Then what are you doing with that crap attitude and full of hate, and how will you answer your God now, or when you get to heaven”. She almost decked me. Fat, lazy, full of hate, and devoid of the love, mercy, or power of God.

        Black before Christian, Black before human, Black before civilized. ‘Nuff said.

        • Rocky Mountain

          Of course one person is always enough to make a case for the entire race. While I am in no way sympathetic to the forces of “political correctness” you really don’t have to go very far to find extreme evidence of white racism on the internet. Just try the comment section on any article in American Renaissance for a starter. Whether or not these types of comments have a large backing or not, I don’t know, but if you read enough of them its pretty clear that black racism isn’t alone.

          • Paul of Alexandria

            But it seems to be much more prevalent. White racists are fewer, lower class, and more isolated; a large minority of blacks of every income level seem to think that anti-white racism is ok.

            Ray, I agree sir, we do have a right and a duty to level the playing field, but how do we go about doing that?
            By caling the black charlatans out when they appear?
            By staging our own marches, public rallys etc?
            By confronting reverse discrimination whereever and whenever we find it?

      • 1Indioviejo1

        Just because you say there aren’t any black racism doesn’t make it so. Racism is alive and well in all human animals. It is with some effort that a multiracial society such as ours learns to accept and respect the ‘other’ as a fellow human. Nevertheless, most people are just average and will continue to harbor racism in their hearts because of their own limitations.

        • Ray Burke

          Everyone has to hate someone. That is simply human nature.

            I’ve noticed that myself.

            A hispanic coworker, from the (Rio Grande) Valley, was telling me that even in Mexico, the Mexicans of pure Spanish blood look down upon and discriminate against any fellow Mexicans with mixed blood.

            As I mentioned to her, people always find some excuse to hate.

            She nodded her head.

            My long time experience with the human race leads me to believe most folks are hard wired nasty.

          • autdrew

            that is true. My FIL was an American of Mexican descent. He told us they had a problem with the central Americans too. They were much darker. In Detroit, I learned that it exists in the black community. There is discrimination against those who are considered “too dark” or who didnt have “good hair”.
            When I lived in Korea, I was shocked to learn of those who look down on other Koreans with darker skin. There is a whole skin lightening industry there! It is considered low class, like the darker skinned ones are poor & work outside so thats why they are darker.This predates western contact by centuries. I was also quite shocked to learn about asian on asian racism. I heard a joke that said The Japanese consider themselves the superior asian race, the Chinese consider themselves the superior asian race, the Koreans KNOW they are the superior asian race. The south asians are severely looked down on, especially the Filipinos, by other asians.
            That is why when I hear people claiming that only whites can be racist or there is something inherent in europeans to be racist, I lmao. I actually read this on a CNN board last week on changing affirmative action from race to class.

          • pfbonney

            Very informative, autdrew.

            “It is considered low class, like the darker skinned ones are poor & work outside so thats why they are darker.”

            My wife is from Cambodia and I have made two trips to there. This mindset still exists throughout Asia, it seems.

            But believe it or not, I’ve read that here in Western culture, before the advent of the middle class (i.e., before the bubonic plague killed off enough of the lower class and caused employers to have to pay middle-class wages to attract workers), I believe it was, we used to have that same mindset. A light complexion indicated that you didn’t have to work for a living. Those with that had other people do their work for them.

            But nowadays, of course, having a “healthy” tan means that you are a person of means, able to spend leisure at the beach, golf course, or out on the water. Being white means you’re flipping burgers at Wendy’s or somewhere.

            But as I’ve learned from Cambodians, they, as you suggest in your post, are considered to be the “Blacks” of Asia (a Cambodian’s words, not mine), being the darkest complected of all Asia. (Although the Thais are supposed to be ethnically identical – so why aren’t they disparaged like Cambodians? I don’t have the answer, myself.) And, unlike the Vietnamese, Japanese and Chinese, (the Cambodians have) wavy hair.

            One last thing. Even my “Great Aunt-in-law”, so to speak, who loves locally (in the Greater Houston area) who is from Cambodia (and fled Cambodia when the Khmer Rouge regime collapsed in January 1979), mentioned to me several months ago that the Japanese are considered by Asians to be the “Whites” of Asia.

            Again, good post, autdrew.

          • autdrew

            Thank you. It was really funny when we came back. Overseas, me & my kids would get compliments for being “so fair”. We came back to the states & it seemed everyone was orange! lol.

            Im glad your wife’s family were able to escape. That was such an awful time.Talk about absolute power corruption. I was just talking about this very thing last week with my children.

            Living in asia was certainly an eye opening experience for me. I learned a lot about the world & insight into an area of the world most of us think of as homogeneous. Nothing could be further from the truth! lol. Have a good one!

        You are right. Most people have lives, friends, family, jobs, and hobbies. And have great communication skills and relationships with all types of people. No one has time for all this. I think this race thing is mostly on the internet and in the media. Most Americans are too busy for foolishness like this. The internet breeds paranoia and ignorance.

            Yes, black people beat and rob white people at a staggering ratio. Are you also aware of the black teen gangs who specifically target white people? The media avoids these stories like the plague but they’ve been happening all across the Country!

          • pfbonney

            In Larry Elder’s book, “The 10 Things You Can’t Say in America”, the number one thing he listed was “Black People are more Racist than White People”.

            And Larry Elder is Black (and Libertarian).

            I think one reason for this is because there is no curricula presented for them for self-improvement. And no incentives. No peer pressure, such as Whites (fortunately) experience.

            The liberal elite depend upon keeping the fires stoked so they can be seen as their “protectors”, so as to perpetuate Blacks’ dependence on them, meaning more soldiers, more power to further their power-grabbing agenda.

            As I see it.

        • ziggy zoggy

          Are you simply denying the truth, or are you actually unable to recognize racism when you encounter it? Most Americans spend a lot of time online and with the media, you know.

          • ashaballot

            Yes I know racism. And whats your point. I think you would have to know the entire conversation. i am talking about race wars. And my point is most people I know of any culture do not have time for that. Some Americans are not online trying to fuel such a movement. Some of our online usage in America is network with people know and for work or business. This guy asked “one big black woman” (i dont even believe the story) and from that he all of sudden knows what’s in the mind of every black person. Trying to justify how he feels about black people by using this sad story. And I find it ridiculous.

          • ziggy zoggy

            I agree that most people don’t have the time or inclination for race wars but America is obsessed with race and plenty of people find the time to practice racism on a daily basis. The public, media and government reaction to the Zimmerman/Martin case is a prime example. It should never have become a national story at all.

          The black stereotype of white people is a stereotype of intense hatred. That stereotype has lasted for centuries and didn’t stop for a second after the Civil War. For blacks today, the Civil War was a meaningless event, just like the all-too-short era of Martin Luther King.

          • pfbonney

            Black accusations, White guilt. That’s how the game is played.

            But the guilty Whites, the Democrats, the party who owned slaves, founded and perpetuated the kay kay kay [eluding the moderator software, here], and enacting the Jim Crow laws, always manage to elude atoning for their wrongdoing. Instead, they make the people of the Republican party, the same party that freed the slaves and fought racism (MLK, to wit) pay.

      Where I come from, there is a saying that skunks know who to spray on…
      Years ago there was a racial explosion in Miami, Florida, caused by a Cuban cop killing a black motorcyclist who tried to run him over…
      The Miami’s Liberty City blacks come out, looting and burning some
      shops but when they tried it on the Cuban owned shops, they were met by “reception committees” sporting handguns, shotguns and rifles,
      daring the mob to go ahead…
      Needless to say, the mob decided it was better to be back later….
      The moral of the story is the reason why blacks don’t tangle with Latinos
      because, as another saying states “Where ferocious tigers roar, there

  • http://smu.gs/L1p7XU winston

    It’s all about what sells. Not some grand race-based conspiracy. This is a post I just made, on another page on this blog: that talks about these same issues:

    The bottom line is that black on black (or black on white or black on hispanic) crime just doesnt sell the same. Or white on Muslim crime, for that matter. Look at the recent case of the unfortunate soldier killed in the UK. The very same week Lee Rigby was killed (he was not beheaded btw, yet it was widely reported in the media that he had been) by obviously mentally deranged (‘Christian’ converts to ‘islam’ -obviously insane), but that very same week a Muslim man was stabbed to death by a white man also in the UK, yet we heard almost nothing about that crime. Why not?

    The Central Park Jogger case in NY, in 1989 is another excellent example. This case literally gripped NYC for months on end. It was on the front page of the Daily News, NY Post and the NY Times even.. just endlessly it seemed, every gory detail, week after week after week. Yet that very same week the jogger was attacked, another woman was also attacked in another horrific crime where a woman was forcibly taken to the roof of a building in Crown Heights Brooklyn, raped, beaten, and then thrown off the roof. Yet, that story hardly even made the papers, much less the front page for months on end. Why not?

    Was it bc the the victim in Jogger Case was a white professional who worked on Wall St and the supposed perps (all of which were later found to be innocent. After they had gone to prison. Watch the excellent doc on the case called THE CENTRAL PARK FIVE) were young black and hispanic men, vs. the Crown hgts. case, in which both the victim and the perps were black? I think probably, yes, ‘race’ makes a difference. But not because of race per se, but because of what sells papers and/or increases ratings vs what doesn’t.

    The reason Casey Anthony’s case got such intense media coverage, while countless inner city and poor area children are killed in the same way (or worse) yet get no coverage is because that’s what sells. It is a true and sad testimony of our society.

    • Rocky Mountain

      Well, we typically don’t hear much about UK crime here anyway with the exception of Rigby and a few others. However, I read the UK papers on a daily basis and I see plenty of reporting on white crime. However, there is no dearth of black crime there either.

  • garyfouse

        You hardly burst my balloon, Ray Burke. You say it will be decided on race, and I said it would be sad if so. Our disagreements are not so wide on that point.

        Now if you will excuse me, I am still playing with my balloon.

        • tagalog

          Or it might mean that the evidence is so overwhelming that Zimmerman acted in self-defense only a racist of the most rabid, virulent, Ernst Roehmer type would see a Not Guilty verdict as white racism at work.

      I’m willing to wait, garyfouse. Time will tell and we won’t have long to wait. Ready for the riots?

      • garyfouse

        Ray,

        I am not denying the racial aspects of this case. As I said before, had both men been of the same race, we would not be here having this discussion and watching non-stop news coverage. I agree that people like Al Sharpton, the new Black Panther Party and others have acted despicably in this matter.

        But I am not clear where you stand. On the one hand, you said the “verdict will be decided primarily on racial considerations”. That implies you think he will be convicted. But you seem to feel that riots are on the way. That would imply that Zimmerman will be acquitted. By the way, for what it is worth, I was involved in a race riot as an MP in Germany back in the 1960s in Germany. Scary stuff.

        I understand the thesis of the article and think it’s worthy of an open discussion between whites and blacks. I must say, however, that some of the other comments in this thread have made sweeping generalizations about black Americans in general that I don’t go along with. To say they “have no soul anymore” (Omar) is wrong.

        And was that reference to being “a worthy goal” a connection with the previous commenter’s statement about Democrats promising to rid America of blacks 100 years ago?

        Do you think that was “a worthy goal”?

        • Ray Burke

          Garyfouse, we are between a rock and a hard place. It is my fervent hope that Zimmerman will be acquitted without charge and walk away a free man. If so, the black community has promised us nationwide mayhem. Consequently, non-blacks must be prepared to defend themselves against the impending pandemonium.
          Conversely, if Zimmerman is found guilty of any charge
          resulting in long term incarceration, the non-blacks are sure to react vigorously but probably not violently.
          And yes, I believe the Democrat inspired goal of ridding America of the Black race was an admirable but unattainable objective.

        • tagalog

          The racial aspects of the Zimmerman-Martin seem to be all on the Martin side of the racial divide.

          When the incident occurred, Zimmerman made no racial remarks. He didn’t make any racial remarks during the police investigation either. When he learned that Martin had been killed, he put his head in his hands in a gesture that can only be interpreted as dismay. When he was told during interrogation that someone might have videotaped the encounter, he was glad.

          On the Martin side of the aisle, however, all we have heard is how Zimmerman was a gun-toting racist just yearning to shoot a black person, that he deliberately picked Martin (“profiled”) him because he was black, and shot him because Zimmerman thought the life of a black kid is cheap.

          Finally, we are threatened with riots, at least inferentially, if the verdict doesn’t come back as black demonstrators want it to.

          • garyfouse

            tagalog,

            I don’t disagree with the above. The only racial slur that has come out of this has been that cracker remark from Martin to his friend on the cell phone.

            I do disagree with certain comments made about blacks in general by some on this thread.

            BTW: I think the judge should have dismissed the case today. I wasn’t surprised that she didn’t because that would have taken courage on her part. Much easier to pass it on to the jury.

            The prosecution did not meet its burden. It did not refute Zimmerman’s account, which they themselves presented to the jury.

            Unfortunately, race is controlling this case.

          • tagalog

            I agree that the case should have resulted in a directed verdict of acquittal. It’s my belief that the prosecution failed to make out a prima facie case for 2d Degree Murder in that they provided no evidence whatever for the element of “malice” in the mind of George Zimmerman. I think that’s true even when the court (as it is required to do at this stage of the trial) looks at the evidence in the light most favorable to the prosecution. But we all know that this trial was destined to be decided by a jury. Race IS controlling this case to the extent that a prosecution got started, and this case is not going to result in any midterm dismissal or directed verdict; it’s going to the jury and there’s not going to be any judgment n.o.v. either. The jury’s going to decide this one, and that’s also because of race – the black version of race.

            I didn’t see or hear about the judge denying a motion for a directed verdict and from you post it looks as if the defense is going to have to put on case. I heard that Zimmerman might not testify. In a jury trial, for the defendant not to testify is risky. When you’re in front of the jury, you almost HAVE to tell your side of story; the jury will want to know something about you, instead of thinking, “why is he silent? Is he hiding something?”
            But the case is full of reasonable doubt, so I’m confident that the defense will be effective. Even if the jury goes against Zimmerman, there’s still the VERY remote chance of a judgment notwithstanding the verdict.

    This isn’t the Black people as they ought to be- this is the black people as dictated by Affirmative Action, Liberal White guilt, and political correctness (and a little of “all children left behind” as well- thanks GW for telling some children that the really don’t have to try)

        Define racism- Color blind perhaps? White guilt? Maybe if we take Bulworths suggestion and everybody screw everybody until everybody becomes the same color brown? What about the re-emergence of bigotry against Jews?

        I know the feeling isn’t mutual- I work in a very diverse area and I see how different cultures breed racism against other cultures- and if you’re Caucasian you’re really screwed- Their hate is not my responsibility or my undoing- But I revel in the uniqueness of the individual cultures. All I ask is that if you live in my country that you try to assimilate- which you can still do without giving up your heritage- and I would consider it my responsibility if I were to move to your country.

        Oh by the way- there is a wide diversity in culture thriving in the United States. Big difference between what you see from LA (Ca) and LA (Louisiana)

        That’s racism- then dammit- I’m a racist- and I’ll gladly stand up for it.

        Oh- by the way- here’s a true representation of the Democratic party’s diversity policies….

    After reading all the other comments, some of which are accusing whites of being racists, others accusing blacks of being racist, etc., I have to laugh (so I won’t cry). This USA of ours is in trouble, Big Time, and racism on both sides is just one aspect of it. People are angry, have no vision or hope for the future, and are often looking for someone else to blame. If it’s not Blacks or Whites, it’s Liberals or Conservatives, or “Feminazis” or “Chauvinist Men,” and on and on. We all have our antagonists and we all think we are the protagonists, in our own little story.

    We need to wake up and start living the Golden Rule—the REAL one.

    Honestly don’t see where you get that POV–you mention nothing specific that would back up that assertion/claim.
    I have seen exactly the coverage you claim on Z’s domestic violence (ok have not heard/seen that Zimmerman “assaulted a cop” anywhere–Fox or otherwise) on Fox news.
    So maybe you don’t watch much Fox? ;)
    In terms of “blacks hating whites” you seem to have not really the above article–you know the one your commenting on.
    “Hate” may be a strong word–but NONE of the above stories really made the national news in the way the Zimmerman has.
    When the media is deciding FOR YOU that THIS horrible tragedy is worth your time and full court press focus but THAT horrible tragedy isn’t worth you paying any attention to at all.
    Well….that is a really bad situation for all involved.

We’ve sunk to a new level of insanity. And the violence that follows the acquittal will be worse than the Rodney King riots.

    Lets be honest. America is going down fast. We traded God’s protection and bounty for abortion and deviant sexual acts. There has been no society in history that replaced God with homosexual activities and lasted ten more years. When you anger God you go quickly. Black American’s have no soul anymore. Mom’s abort 2.6 for every baby allowed to live. 90% have no father and the DNA testing for the average 57 partners per pregnancy would cost too much. When democrats said they would rid America of blacks in 100 years they meant it.

    The alleged gang rape of an 11-year-old girl by at least 18 boys and young men has sparked shame and outrage in a tiny Texas town, but it has also stirred racial tensions that threaten to split the East Texas hamlet.

    All of the defendants arrested are African-American and the girl is Hispanic.

    This case is far more insightful than the Zimmerman case, but Obama’s loyal leftist media has put a total blackout on Reporting. Especially comments from the Black Panthers that the girl deserved it.

    Has everyone forgotten how Barak Obama used the bully pulpit accorded to the president in order to introduce the notion of racism into the Zimmerman matter? Do you suppose this might have had something to do with his mistaken belief that the name “Zimmerman” was a Jewish name? Has everyone forgotten how many years Barak and Michelle sat at the knee of that so-called “reverend” Wright who exhorted his congregation to hate America and especially “the Jews”? The Zimmerman case deals with “who did what to whom” and ought never to have had it linked to ethnicity or race but was, thanks to Barak Hussein Obama singling out this particular case for the sake of his personal politics.

    For the past few years I have been saying that Obama has set race relations back 50 years. He certainly didn’t plan to do so but he revealed his own smoldering resentment against whites a number of times and his very presence in the White House has given many blacks a feeling of power, that they can do what they could never do before. Despicable creeps like Maxine Waters surfaced with her racism and so many others. I have a black lady friend who was as liberal as any human being could be regarding black-white issues. But during the elections she suddenly pulled the race card. She honestly believed that voters who were fed up with Obama’s inadequacies were only against him because he is black and America is racist. I had to remind her that blacks alone could never have elected him. That thought pulled the rug out from under her prejudiced feet. Obama has damaged America in far more ways that we realize today.

    What is wrong with this picture? If the background of one is relevant … it would go without saying that the background of both Martin and Zimmerman would be relevant. There appears to be a judicial double standard regarding the submission of evidence?

    GEORGE ZIMMERMAN

    Judge allows George Zimmerman school records into evidence
    July 3, 2013

    The prosecution in the George Zimmerman murder case introduced his school and medical records into evidence Wednesday, a move aimed at showing that the neighborhood watch volunteer was familiar with self-defense law and had hopes of a career in law enforcement. …

    Judge Debra S. Nelson on Wednesday ruled in favor of a prosecution motion to admit Zimmerman’s school records, his job application to a Virginia police agency and his request to the Sanford police to go on a ride-along with officers.

    The defense had argued that the records were irrelevant to what happened on the rainy night when Zimmerman and Martin had their clash.

    The prosecution is hoping the records and applications will support the theory that Zimmerman was a wannabe cop who became increasingly frustrated by incidents of crime in his gated community. When Zimmerman saw Martin, the prosecution maintains, the neighborhood watch volunteer profiled the teenager, followed him and then had a confrontation that led to Martin being shot to death.

    TRAYVON MARTIN

    Suspension Permitted In Zimmerman Trial
    5:25 pm, May 28th, 2013

    During a pre-trial hearing Tuesday afternoon, a Florida judge ruled that George Zimmerman’s defense team cannot use the late Trayvon Martin’s alleged prior marijuana use, school suspension, past fighting, personal text messages or pictures during its opening statement in next month’s high-profile second-degree murder trial.

    This comes nearly a week after Zimmerman’s lawyer Mark O’Mara made the cable news rounds, showing off new photographs taken from Martin’s cellphone, including a shot of a marijuana plant and an unidentified hand holding a gun:

    O’Mara had also claimed his team had obtained text messages in which Martin talks about organized fighting. “He got mo hits cause in da 1st round. He had me on da ground nd I couldn’t do ntn,” reads one text from November 2011.

    Why in March 2012 was Allen West’s first reaction to come down on the side of Trayvon Martin over George Zimmerman rather than let the investigation take its course? Why did it not occur to this man that maybe, just maybe, a troubled young black man could have been the aggressor.

    Allen West On Trayvon Martin Case: ‘This Is An Outrage’
    THURSDAY MARCH 22, 2012

    Rep. Allen West (R-FL), a high-profile conservative and one of two African-American Republicans currently serving in Congress, posted a statement early Thursday evening on Facebook, lambasting the local authorities in the handling of the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

    Notably, West said that the shooter George Zimmerman “should have been held in custody and certainly should not be walking free, still having a concealed weapons carry permit.”

    during the oj fiasco, black violence was threatened if oj was not acquitted. to the eternal shame of cowardly criminal white jurors, they caved, and came to a flagrantly racist wrong verdict to please the potential rioters. this was a huge opportunity, wasted. the jurors should have convicted, and dared the thugs to riot. in my opinion, so many thugs would have been dispatched that threats of rioting would never again be taken seriously. here again, we have a mostly white jury with a duty to come to the right verdict in spite of racist pressure. if the racists will riot if the verdict doesn’t please them, it is again another opportunity to put an end to race riots. all we need is one race riot where herds of criminals are slain by shop owners and home owners. I predict that , like the oj trial, cowardly whites will cave in and give the racists the verdict they demand.

    tagalog,

    Zimmerman was certainly expected to take the stand here, and coming out of law enforcement, I never felt that innocent defendants would not testify. Yet this seems unique. I actually don’t think he should. The jury will be instructed not to consider that fact (that he doesn’t testify).

    While I think he would do well on the stand, why let the prosecution pick holes in his testimony by going over minor contradictions in his statements and make him look evasive? His version of events (and others) have already been shown to the jury by the state in an effort to pick out out small crumbs amid all the exculpatory evidence. A bad performance by Zimmerman on those small points could hurt him on the stand.

    The one time I was allowed to serve on a jury, I had reasonable doubt-until the defendant testified.

  • pumped_up_kicks

    PC, just like Marxism, depends upon defining what it considers good and bad groups. It defines good groups as “victims” of bad groups. The victims can never be anything but good, regardless of what their actions may be. Witness what the Black Panthers did in Philadelphia, PA in 2008 and 2012. Any group identified as good by PC (homosexuals, blacks, Hispanics, illegal immigrants, feminist women, mentally and/or physically challenged people, the poor, environmentalists, the list goes on and on) must be shown deference, both physically and linguistically. They must not be offended, must not be insulted.

    Any group identified as bad by PC, such as white males or any Christian group, can be offended. This offense, PC practitioners say, “makes up” for past offenses certain to have been committed in the past by bad groups. And what’s worse is that the PC practitioners get to define the offenses committed by the bad groups. This situation, by definition, is a “self-fulfilling prophesy.”

    Oh, but that is RACIST..

    Why do Black youth… HATE Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Muslims.. AND anyone that is not ‘BLACK ENOUGH”.

    Start at the Single Family homes… and the racist family members.

    If Zimmerman is convicted, there will be no whites rioting, liberating HDTVs and the contents of liquor stores, or burning their neighborhoods. But we should be ready to occupy the offices of the media outlets who had him convicted as soon as they thought him to be a white Jew.

    I am
    guessing that any riot prone people will face unexpected Resistance. White
    people no longer believe that they are guilty of oppressing blacks. Many whites
    believe that blacks should be grateful that white people stopped slavery.

    Ultra short history lesson on slavery in America –

    Of all 1,515,605 families in the 15 slave states in 1860, nearly 400,000 held
    slaves (roughly one in four),[3] amounting to 8% of all American families. So
    at the apex of slavery in the United States only 8% of American families owned
    staves and some of those slaves were owned by black Americans.

    So why do modern day blacks blame the entire white race for
    slavery when in fact it was white Americans who stopped slavery? Gee, maybe
    they have been brainwashed by liberal politicians for political advantage.

    Black chieftains sold black slaves to Arabs. Arabs sold those
    slaves to slave traders. Slavery was a fact of life. Even free black Americans
    owned black slaves. Black Africans and Arabs made slavery possible. White
    Americans stopped slavery. Where is the gratitude on the part of blacks toward
    white abolitionists and the white Union soldiers who died to stop slavery?

    Editors note: I received email challenging the fact that black
    Americans owned black slaves. Here is a research source:http://thesteadydrip.blogspot.com/2013/05/ultra-short-history-lesson-on-slavery.html
