I’m a Racist, You’re a Racist

I’m a Racist, You’re a Racist

A lot of white bloggers are explaining why other white bloggers, like me, are defending George Zimmerman.  One of them argues that we’re all racists, and that we just don’t want to admit it.  Her theory, which just naturally assumes George Zimmerman is a racist, is that when us white people defend him and his actions that night, we are really just “defending ourselves.”

Not even close.

You see, people like me defend George Zimmerman for one simple reason: he’s innocent!  It’s clearly a case of self-defense and anyone who denies that is letting emotion overshadow the facts.

And people like me deny that George Zimmerman is a racist for another fairly straightforward reason: there’s no evidence he’s a racist!  The evidence, in fact, says just the opposite.

You see, people like me, whether they’re black, brown, white or yellow, don’t get our opinions from partisan pundits, or preachers, or tendentious talking-heads on TV; and we don’t conflate four centuries of racial oppression with a case that should never have even gone to trial, then whine about it and cry racism from the rooftops when we don’t get the result we wanted.

People like me, you see, when it comes to making an important decision — like, say, someone’s guilt or innocence in a murder case with huge national and racial consequences — we try to remain objective.  We try to not let emotion overpower reason.  We ignore public opinion.  In other words, we try to think like a juror is supposed to think.

And, yes, in order to remain objective we  suppress our natural compassion for the victims of our forefathers, and we rise above the shame of a long history of oppression and cruelty, and we overcome the fear of retribution.  That’s what the law requires, and that is what morality requires.

We would all like to wipe the stain of slavery from the pages of our history books, but we cannot allow racial indignation and pandering to overshadow the truth.  We must set our past, and even our present, aside and judge each case weighing only the facts, considering only the evidence.  And, above all, we must not violate the most important precept of the American legal system: the presumption of innocence.

Punch the First White Person!

Well, it looks like we have three more victims of the media lynch mob.  A black man in New York city, after proclaiming he was going to “punch the first white person” he saw, proceeded to punch and critically injure three unsuspecting white people as they walked down the street.  Their ages ranged from 18 to 69 years old, the oldest still in critical condition.

We are experiencing a rash of crimes against white people, perpetrated by blacks, unlike I’ve ever seen.  Is there any doubt that this heightened racial animus is due to the lies told by the American media and the race-baiters like Sharpton, Jealous, and Jackson during the Zimmerman case?

When will we hold them accountable for their complicity?

WWII Vet Beaten to Death with Flashlights

WWII Vet Beaten to Death with Flashlights

Delbert Belton, an 88-year old WWII veteran, was beaten to death by two black thugs.  They used flashlights to beat him while he sat in his car.

Delbert Belton - WWII VetSo much for the argument by black liberals, like that of Richard Fowler on Fox News this week: “If these kids didn’t have a gun, Christopher Lane would be alive today.”  While this is a dumb remark to begin with, this case certainly proves it wrong.  If someone wants to kill someone bad enough, almost anything will do.  In this case, flashlights.

So I guess people like Fowler will be demanding more flashlight-control laws.  After all, it can’t be the fault of the thug, or the thug’s parents, or the thug’s community, or of the gangsta culture in black America and the thug’s desire to be a part of it.  And it can’t be the increased anger against white people in young, black America in the wake of the Zimmerman case, which is due solely to the false narrative told by the likes of Al Sharpton, Piers Morgan, and the rest of the people in the Zimmerman Lynch Mob.

It just can’t be any of those things because that might offend someone. Or, worse, it might reveal their complicity.

Fowler: It’s the Gun’s Fault

Fowler: It’s the Gun’s Fault

Yesterday, Richard Fowler, a black liberal, said on Fox news that “if these kids didn’t have a gun, Christopher Lane would be alive today.” Really? How anyone could possibly know this is beyond me. They may have just beaten him to death. Or Richard Fowlerrun over him. Then, I suppose, he would be blaming the car.

Besides, there are a lot of “ifs” that could be called out here, all of them more important than whether or not they had a gun. If they were at home, for example, Lane would be alive. If they were studying. If they were playing basketball or football or riding their bikes. If they were at work. If they were out fishing with their dad. If they were helping their mother with housework.

The list is almost infinite. But at least these are things that we can control, and that can have a more immediate impact, and that doesn’t need an act of Congress – literally. But keep talking about gun control, Fowler, because that will ensure that no black person gets offended – and that the problem will persist.

Finally, while I’m no big fan of guns, I did have a .22 when I was a kid.  I shot it at tin cans, milk jugs, and paper targets nailed to trees.  But somehow I managed to not kill anyone with it.

Three Thugs and a Gun

Three Thugs and a Gun

Star Jones appeared on Piers Morgan last night to talk about last week’s horrific shooting death of Christopher Lane.  Star JonesLane was a 22-year old Aussie going to college in Oklahoma on a baseball scholarship. He was jogging when three teens drove up behind him, shot him in the back, and left him for dead. The three ranged in ages from 15 to 17, two were black, and one white.

While it’s still too early to know who the ring-leader was, or who pulled the trigger, there is little doubt these three thugs were responsible. In fact they told the police they did it “because they were bored.” There’s also evidence they wanted to be “gangstas,” and at least one of them had a criminal past.

I can hear Bill O-Reilly congratulating himself already. And he should.

Last night Piers Morgan, who labeled George Zimmerman a racist and a murderer just weeks after the shooting, and sticks to that unfounded position even today, never even brought up the issue of race. Neither did Ms. Jones. Not once.

Instead they talked about gun control. And while I agree with Morgan on many gun control issues, like background checks and limited magazines, he is way off when it comes to racial issues. He would rather pander to black America than actually help them.

In fact, it seems he would rather talk about anything but personal responsibility or parental influence, or the lack of male role models, or the pervasive “gangsta culture” in young, black America, and that these thugs were apparently a part of.  These in fact are topics to be carefully avoided on CNN.

Stop and Frisk is not Racist

Stop and Frisk is not Racist

Meet the Press
Sunday, August 18, 2013

Dick Gregory talks to Ray Kelly, NYC Police Commissioner; Ben Jealous, head of NAACP; and Sybrina Fulton (along with the ever-present Ben Crump).  Again, we see the false cries of racism from these race-baiting opportunists.  Here’s my take.

David Gregory - Meet the PressA New York judge recently declared “stop and frisk” unconstitutional, saying that “the policy of targeting the right people is racially discriminatory and therefore violates the United States constitution.”  So, while Judge Shiendlin admits that the right people are being stopped, she has a problem with how many of them happen to be black (52%) or Hispanic (31%).  (White people come up third at an unimpressive 10%).  I guess the percentage for Asians was too small to even make the list.  But you don’t see them complaining.

Maybe Asians don’t make the list because there are far less Asian neighborhoods rife with crime, daily shootings, violence, drugs on every corner, and gangs.  It seems only reasonable for fewer cops to patrol these safer neighborhoods.  And it seems only reasonable that less Asians will be stopped and frisked.

But, using the reasoning of Judge Shiendlin, this could be a violation of the constitution, in that the police stop far too many white people as compared to Asians.  It therefore must be a case of discrimination against white people, right?  We can play this game all day.

Statistics are often interpreted improperly, but you don’t expect it from a federal judge.  Just because a larger percentage of white people are stopped as compared to Asians, that doesn’t mean that the cops are racially profiling white people.  And just because blacks are overrepresented, it doesn’t mean that cops are racially profiling black people.
