While there has been a lot of predictable vitriol from both sides of the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case, AWD has refused to take the bait. It seems many white people are eager to show Trayvon as a hoodie-wearing thug who attacked George Zimmerman, was shot and got what he deserved. And many black people have taken the other side, saying George Zimmerman is a cold-blooded killer who killed an innocent young, black man who happened to be walking through his neighborhood.
Trayvon may have been a thug. It appears new evidence may prove just that. Or he could have been an angel as the media and blacks believe. Zimmerman might be a guy sick of having homes in his neighborhood broken into and was attacked by a thug kid who didn’t like being followed in a gated community where he did not belong. Or Zimmerman could be a wannabe cop type who took it out on a young kid in the wrong place at the wrong time.
What happened that night? I don’t know and neither do you. Neither does Al Sharpton or the New Black Panthers. Or the Aryan Brotherhood. Or Obama. Or the man in the moon! Whether Martin was a thug or not shouldn’t have any bearing in whether he was lawfully or unlawfully shot. Just as Zimmerman’s having a gun and having a habit of calling 9/11 shouldn’t matter, either.
As a white guy, I too am tired of race baiting extortionists and the mainstream media creating media circuses out of certain events but not others. Those events always seem to be whites doing something bad to blacks while blacks doing bad things to whites never seem to be mentioned. Think Duke LaCrosse and the recent burning of the 13 year old white teen by black teens. Black people seem to think that they are victims of white people, constant racism and the police.
What I do know is a lot of people have taken the bait set for them by liberals eager to deflect attention from the atrocious job Obama is doing as President and $4+ gasoline. And you better believe the Trayvon Martin case is just that! Obama and Eric Holder are most certainly racist. Obama, going back to his community organizer days, takes the side of the black person every time. Holder’s record at DOJ sadly speaks for itself in the area of racial justice. And, just as he did in the Louis Henry Gates event, Obama may have to eat his initial words in the Trayvon Martin case.
In regards to the case, AWD has decided to reserve making an opinion until all the evidence comes to light. Just as it did in the Duke Lacrosse case. Being a thug in a hoodie isn’t a death penalty. Nor is defending yourself from being attacked and beaten by a trespasser in your neighborhood. What matters is whether Trayvon Martin attacked and beat George Zimmerman or not. If he did, then Zimmerman was protected by law to use deadly force. If Martin did not attack Zimmerman and Zimmerman faked his injuries, then Zimmerman will be found guilty. It’s as simple as that. And all the vitriol being spewed by both sides will not matter one bit. Guilty or not guilty is what matters. Thug or no thug doesn’t. The truth will come out.
I realize I will anger a lot of people on both sides with this post. But I refuse to be a pawn in the leftists political drama to stir up racial hatred and deflect the disaster zone Obama has created. Leftists know Obama is in deep crap and needs every black vote in the voting booth this year. Perhaps, by stirring up a race war, leftists believe independent and/or conservative blacks will feel closer to the black side if there is enough vitriol and pull the lever for Obama.
We know this entire brouhaha is a sham. The racist extortionists like Sharpton don’t care about this case. Blacks kill other blacks by the thousands each year across America and not a word is said. White on black crime is nearly non-existent. This is all about furthering the leftist agenda and creating havoc. Don’t take the bait. Let the police, evidence and court decide the case. We have much bigger fish to fry in November. And those fish are the leftists who have brought America and our Constitution to their knees.
