COMMENTARY: Zimmerman Acquittal Says It’s Open Season on Black Males

Comments: 85  | Leave A Comment

It’s no secret that black Americans have always been distrustful of the nation’s racially skewed judicial system and Saturday’s verdict only confirms that justice for black people is often elusive, like sand slipping through fingers.

“Our kids are still defined by the color of their skin,” Sybrina Martin told me in April.

In the months ahead, I’m concerned for the safety of young black men while, regrettably, watching history repeat itself: First there was Emmitt Till, who was murdered in 1955 at the age of 14 by white men who claimed Till was flirting with a white girl. Then, Medgar Evers, a civil rights activist, was murdered in 1963 by a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

And now, Trayvon Martin.

The sad truth is that black men are no strangers to racial profiling. Almost all of my black male friends have been racially profiled at some point during the lives – and that includes me.

It happened again earlier this summer while I was visiting family in Sacramento, California and taking a morning walk around their neighborhood.

I was wearing shorts, a t-shirt, a cap, and listening to music on my iPod. It was about 8 a.m. and sunny and I noticed a van following me. A white man was behind the wheel and he continued to stare as he pulled alongside me.

I didn’t think about it initially until the van made a U-turn and slowly followed me from a quarter-mile back. When I walked faster, he sped up. When I slowed down, he dropped back. He continued to trail me as I walked around the block three times. He backed off only after he watched me walk into my aunt’s house.

I cover the White House, I’m a radio commentator on national radio, I’ve interviewed Obama twice face-to-face, and I’m a father, but the white man who followed me in Sacramento only saw me as a suspicious black man, perhaps a suspect, and possibly up to no good.

A friend asked me if I plan to see the movie “Fruitvale Station,” which opens later this month. It’s the true story of a 22-year-old unarmed black man from Oakland who was shot and killed by police.

I will definitely see “Fruitvale Station,” but not today. I’m still pondering the true meaning of justice.

  1. Why is this concept so difficult for you. The prosecution did not attempt to convict based on racial profiling. The strategy backfired. Had the state charged to convict based strictly on racial profiling the jury would have had a chance to convict on that premise. The jury never had that opportunity. Do you homework.

  2. So despite the statistics which show that 85 percent of interracial crimes are committed by blacks against whites it is open season on blacks?

  3. A Question Was Raised “What Do We Tell Our Black Boys?” And Here Are My 6 Answer #1 Working Twice As Hard To Get A Same Result As Others Is Assinine #2 We Will Preserve & Protect Their Rite To Be Wrong While Growing Up #3 What The Laws Won’t Protect Them From Our Love Will #4 Never Give Up On 99% Of A Person’s Purpose Because Of 1% Of Their Problem #5 Pick Your Battles & Choose Your Wars #6 Racist Is The Only Sport That Don’t Have A Winner…

  4. We’re so focused on the stand your ground law that we’re giving a pass to the five white and one two- taco juries that signed off and endorsed this racist display. Nothing is more revealing than the remarks by the racist asshole known as juror B-37. She clearly identical with Zimmerman. Not onle is he George to her, but she blames TM for his own death. She just overlooks the fact that a young 17 year old was stalked, beat, and shot by this racist. Apparently travon Martin did not have the right to stand his ground. The jury was even more racist than Zimmerman.

    • With all due respect, the level of ignorance you are displaying is incredible and scary. It shows dangerous detachment from reality and reason. Poor Trayvon is a symptom of a black problem, not a white one. Trayvons are murdered daily in epidemic proportions but not by whites. Perpetually blaming others for your own self-created problems will assure that you stay forever angry and beset with those same problems. That’s just where the race hustlas want you because that’s how the stay in power and paid. This insanity has no resemblance to the righteous dignity of Dr. Martin Luther King.

  5. all white folks every understood was violence, that is how they kept us in line back in slavery times

    was to commit an violent act ,, they never understood anything but violence. they created it,,

    they started the N-word it did not come from any black people. it came from our slave master’s

    please christopher columbus was a murderer this violence against people of color this just did not start in 2013. Its been going on from the beginning.

    • Joey, are you familiar with the history of slavery? You do know that black slaves were sold by black Africans who kidnapped other blacks and sold them to whomever would buy them. Read any Dr. Henry Louis Gates? You should. We are all the same brother. People will get out of control and murder, no matter their race if they do not have just and true leaders and brave men in their midst who will stand up for what is right, not what is easy and convenient. Europeans, Asians, Africans, have all been racist murderers. Ever heard of Mali in Africa? An estimated 200,000 black slaves were freed there due to European intervention there in the last year. 50 years before that Europeans were killing Congolese and after that Africans

      • And after that Africans slaughtered millions of each other in Rwanda. Sorry sir, but black murders in America are committed 93% of the time by blacks. And 86% of whites murdered in America are murdered by whites. What’s going on now is manipulation and rhetoric. Want to save the Trayvons of America? March in the hood and look inward. Show leadership and responsibility. Blaming whitey and looking to white people and politicians who manipulate and use you is not going to solve the problem.

      • Kay, today the black Africans who keep slaves (such as the estimated 200,000 slaves in Mali) do so through violence and economic coercion. Without black Africans waging war upon and kidnapping each other to sell slaves there would have been no slavery. Race hustlers posing as the “black leadership” have riled up the willfully ignorant. These people all start with a premise then fabricate, distort, and selectively perceive until they’ve baffled themselves into a frenzy. This whole Trayvon thing is ginned up for political purposes, self interest, and to distract from very real and scary scandals and problems. This whole thing is going to expose fools and charlatans and backfire. I would love to teach but I would get fired because I t

  6. @ jancorey please do not communicate with me. I do not want to continue to speak on anything with you. you can make comments and Rants and raves/ all you want. I have a life I’m busy so good luck to you. I’m not interested.

    • Joey, it seems the facts of this case are still confusing and scaring you somewhat. Don’t fear, your worries can be overcome by doing some research that verifies everything I have ever posted is 100% accurate. I only respond to others who have questions and concerns like you do, and I hope the information I provide helps you to fill in some of the blank spots in your current understanding of this case. Follow your doctors directions and maybe print out some of your comments you have made here and bring them with you to your next appointment with your Psychiatrists. Good luck to you in your recovery.

      • Please stop I do not have any comment. Please leave me alone. I do not need you harassing me.

      • Joey, I have never harassed anyone contrary to your last rant. Your mental illness is apparent and perhaps you should be discussing your problems with your Psychiatrists and not here on this site. Why you have such a problem with the acquittal of George Zimmerman and why you lash out against others with your racist and vengeful hate-speech is something no one here can help you with. Again, that is an issue I would suggest you discuss with your mental health professionals and not here. If you have a question regarding this case, by all means ask. But, your mental challenges are not an issue for this blog or any other blog you troll, imo. Good luck to you in your recovery, God speed.

  7. One question…why are black americans soooo insecure? It must be this generation, driven by weak minded black leaders. I remember when I was in the Marines in vietnam over half my unit were black americans…strong, focused and disciplined. What has happened to this generation…insecure, weak and lacking personal discipline. It makes me sad.

  8. I want someone to explain why blacks can murder twice as many whites as whites murder blacks and blacks are ranting about whites murdering blacks. If anyone should be taking to the streets about racism and murder it is whites. The truth should be front and center in this national discussion. It isn’t because the truth is inconvenient and contravenes the scam. Is the black community served by excuses, lies, and blame the cracka? Or is the black community best served by acknowledging its problems and working to resolve them? Black America’s problem is Black America.

  9. It’s been open season on black males for a very long time. And it has nothing to do with the GZ shooting TM. Blacks kill other blacks at much higher rate than any other race of people kill blacks. You are absolutely correct. It is open season on black males. And the season was declared by black males.

  10. The verdict had nothing to do with color, the verdict had nothing to do with anything other than the fact there was not enough evidence to convict Mr. Zimmerman of breaking the law as it stands. Don’t waste your time protesting the verdict… spend your time in changing the law!

    • @ katie I do agree LIKE Dick Gregory says lets not get emotional,,lets think” and try to get this law changed. @ Jancorey you do not Have the correct information,, You are just talking about something you know nothing about,, GET YOUR LIFE TOGEHTER,,, and Remember that your education is not very large. your not informative at all,,,

    • Work together to “get the law changed”? To save black lives? White people aren’t murdering blacks. Blacks are murdering blacks. Again, in 2011 whites murdered 193 blacks and blacks murdered 448 whites. Given that there are about 600% more whites in America than blacks, if anyone should be outraged at murder rates based upon who is doing the killing it should be whites, particularly as blacks only seem concerned on the relatively rare occasion that a white person (or “white Hispanic”) kills a black person instead of a black person killing a black person. Katie, if this was really about doing something and not race baiting then the black community and leadership would be marching on the hood.

    • @ Katie i agree with you there is nothing we can do with this verdict its over, and frankly its getting tired of all of it,,

      Plus we need to make sure that the stand your ground law, needs to be look over and changed

      I wonder who even put that on a petition to be voted must have took a poll of all white men,,

      I’m glad We do not have a stand your ground law in my state. we just have to stop being emotional

      and start thinking and making some serious changes,, I’m glad stevie wonder will not be playing in the state of florida until this law is abolished. that is a start…

  11. Where is the outcry for the life that Rachael Jeantel has chosen to waste. What a sad pathetic excuse for a black woman.

  12. How can we ask of others what we will not do ourselves for our own community. We treat each other as if we don’t have any rights as human beings. This is a regular daily interaction in our own communities. NO RESPECT for your brotha or sistah. I thank my ancestors that shed their blood so I can have some opportunities and to be able to dream. My heart goes out to the Martin family….

    • Mothernature, you said that so eloquently and I appreciate your positive attitude more than you know. Your comment was refreshing and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    • @ mothernature and Jewelthief, Has anyone noticed that symbol of that Big Black man symbol on Jancorey website,,

      I wonder if anyone noticed, that it looks very demonic… Jancorey is someone that we do need to debate with. what a waste of time.

  13. The facts which show that if there is any “racism” in murder in America it is black racism against whites. According to the FBI (2011 Crime Statistics) blacks (about 12.5% of the US population) murdered 448 whites; whites (about 76% of the US population) murdered 193 blacks 2011. Blacks murder whites at about twice the rate that whites murder blacks. You can have all the misdirection tantrums and protests you want, but it doesn’t change the facts:

    White Murder Victims: 3,172 (2,630 murdered by whites / 448 murdered by blacks)
    Black Murder Victims: 2,695 (193 murdered by whites / 2,447 murdered by blacks)
    http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2011/crime-in-the-u.s.
    -2011/tables/expanded-homicide-data-table-6

    Of white murder victims, approximately 14% are murdered by blacks. Of black
    murder victims, approximately 7% are murdered by whites. Blacks (12.5% of
    the population) committed 2,895 murders in 2011; whites (76% of the
    population) committed 2,823 murders. As long as black communities continue to be political pawns and ignore the black on black genocide in its own communities, wasting time and effort blaming white people, that situation is only going to get worse. Check yourself before you wreck yourself.

    • Stated another way, in America in 2011 (the latest complete statistics), blacks (about 12.5% of the pop.) committed 2895 murders (murdering 2447 blacks and 448 whites); whites (about 76% of the pop.) committed 2823 murders (murdering 193 blacks and 2630 whites).

      Why aren’t blacks marching and protesting for peace and directing rage and angst against their true murderers? When was the last time a massive protest was held on the black killing grounds of Chicago, Detroit, or DC? If you eliminated every murder by a white or a “white Hispanic” of a black the black murder rate would still be incredibly high. Do you think blaming white people for “racism” is going to stop the black murder rate? Pretty insane.

      • Cracka, is it really worth the expense of the greater-populous (the whites) to spend our tax dollars trying to cut down on black-on-black crime? It may be working just fine from the welfare perspective of more black-on-black-deaths result on less welfare usage and less overall crime; a win-win as I have read? If blacks want to lessen black-on-black crime, then maybe it’s the blacks that need to expend the energy and resources to reach that goal.

      • JanCorey, it is worth it because we are all Americans and in this together. We are being fractionalized by politicians, white, black, Democrat and Republican, because it works. The media pimps this because it gets viewers and sells ads. It’s a tragedy when any 17 year old dies. It’s a tragedy when any kids don’t have fathers, can’t get a decent education, and are mistreated. It’s a tragedy when people are stuck in neighborhoods turned into hell holes by violence and nothing is done about it. There is no “race murder” in America. There is murder and it is wrong.

      • @ Cracka Please know that this Jancorey does not have any respect for people of color, because we are all thugs..

        ALL black people kill people,, we are all on welfare,, So your wasting your time with Ignorant people like this who think they know. THey do not know, and will never KNow.

        THEY JUST HATE US BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT US… BOTTOM LINE. ( WE ARE THE BADDEST RACE ON THIS EARTH) WE ARE GOD’S CHOOSEN PEOPLE..

      • Joey, contrary to your rant, I do have respect from people that are well-educated and well-informed to the facts of this case so when you attack, one just has to just consider your perspective at being wrong. Noone can demand you educate yourself to the facts and to not attack others simply because they are better-informed than yourself. Your approach is simply jealousy, it must be difficult to be in your position like that. Sad, imo.

      • I’m not jealous of you ,, and I have never been jealous of anyone,, plus who says you are informed

        because your not!!,,, so say whatever your little rant/raves you do,,, because trust me you cannot and will never be able to inform me about anything. so leave me alone, and move on,, I have no interest in communicating with you…

      • Joey, clearly you are still jealous of me and jealous of every other well-educated person that has destroyed the basis of your troll-like perspective on this case. No well-educated-commentor is here to help you with your clear and apparent psychosis, we are simply relaying facts that have been involved in this case and why the acquittal of George Zimmerman was the right thing to do since Justice was being sought and finally obtained. Clearly you still have some desires for more direct-conversations, but may I suggest that you not attack people with your racist attacks against others and simply be polite and I am sure there are people here willing to help you in your hours of need. Good luck to you and everyone please keep Joey in your prayers so that he can get some relief from the demons scrambling around in his head. God speed Joey.

      • WHO SAYS YOUR EDUCATED AND WHO SAYS YOUR WELL INFORMED PLEASE STOP I’M NOT THE ONE.. get yourself a life and move on… I do not have time for you. please who is jealous you are completely delusional if you think your educated… Please just because you can write and read does not mean your educated. please do not comment it does not make a difference to me…

      • Joey, again, your trolling is apparent and I am willing to help you to learn about the truth and the facts of this case, but not willing to address your mental psychosis issues. Take your meds as directed by your doctors and if you still have questions you are seeking some information about regarding this case, please ask. But, your mental health struggles that you have are not able to be addressed in such a setting as this blog. Best wishes for you in your recovery and may I suggest you remove all weapons and metal objects from your immediate surroundings. God speed.

      • Joey, the newest thing I am reading about is the Justice-forTrayvon efforts and I personally believe that Justice-forTrayvon has already been accomplished and is done after Trayvon was shot dead after he attacked a victim while being high on dope and armed with a metal can in his hoodie and using a cement walkway to bash a victim‘s head against the cement until possible harm or death to the victim. Justice is complete for Trayvon, he’s dead and buried. Anyone who disagrees, go to your nearest cement sidewalk and strike your own head against the cement hard enough to cause injury and let us know how many strikes you can endure before you believe that exercise is simply not right or hurtful. Go ahead, get to it!

      • Cracka, I agree that most murders are wrong, but there are some like in this case that are not only justified but the best option because Trayvon is now dead due only HIS bad choices and I am eutectic he was eliminated before he hurt any more children and adults than he already had. He hated school and loved drugs, doesn’t mix at all in the professional world, and he got nipped in the bud before he became another black in the prison population. I have zero sympathy for his death; he did it all on his own. Bad choices if you ask me.

      • Joey, I was in a courtroom last week and watching as the imprisoned were lead in for sentencing and such. I noticed that there were black (about 60%), white (about 35%) and a couple Mexicans. When court got started I noticed that half the law enforcement was white, half black, some black prosecutors some white, the judge was white, but the judge was black in the courtroom next door. The judge’s secretary/clerk was black, his minute clerk white. What that proves to me is that you do with it what you will. There are bad and good. If you treat people bad, particularly children, do not show them love, treat them as worthless, white or black or Asian or Hispanic, they will invariably not love, hate, and treat the world as it treated them. The “second tragedy”, the tragedy that should be important to us all, is that if Trayvon Martin had been killed outside that C-store by another black teen no one except his parents would have paid any attention.

  14. The killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman is morally and ethically wrong and although the jury found otherwise, it is still legally wrong. But isn’t the killing of Dante by Jacquan just as morally, ethically, and legally wrong? Black people need to wake up and admit to their own racists attitudes and behaviors. How many times do we see young Black males killing their peers and when the cops show up, no one in the neighborhood has seen or heard a thing, even when the streets are crowded with people? I find this case quite ironic as those same Blacks who don’t see or hear anything criminally wrong in their communities are outraged by what happened in Sanford, FL, for which they neither personally saw nor heard anything. Yes, this case was polarized by race, but it goes both ways. What my own people are saying is that we can kill our own but others can’t. I have a 23 year old son and he and his friends have said that they are more afraid of their peers on a Friday or Saturday night at any given club across the country than they are of the likes of George Zimmerman. Yes, we need a movement in this country but it needs to be a movement in our own homes and in our own communities! How can we clean up someone else’s house without first cleaning up our own? It is not open season on Black males in this country by other races of people. That war was started long ago by our own sons and daughters. Wake up Black people and stop the misaligned racism against others when the crimes we commit against one another far outnumber the unjustified crime committed by George Zimmerman. From a Black Mom or reason.

    • I think you are missing the point, this young boy went to 7-11 to get a tea and some skittles minding his own business while being confronted by George Zimmerman besides he was using undertones such as “they always get away” although, he didn’t say black people It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know he was talking about “these black people always get away” so you tell me where the justice is?

      • majestic: I’m curious…..did you actually read DTurner’s comments? He didn’t miss the point by any stretch of the imagination. I agree with what he’s saying. My take on what he’s saying is that YES we should definitely be outraged about Trayvon’s death; but that we should also be JUST AS OUTRAGED about the crime, and killings that go on in black neighborhoods each, and every day in every major city across this country. Wake up, and pay attention people

    • DTurner you have stated the most intelligent comment on this forum and all the others I have read combined. I am more scared of my OWN people shooting me for no reason than any white or other race attempting to do it. Sadly, it is a shame to feel this way…

    • Well said sir. The first tragedy is that a 17 year old is dead. The second tragedy is that if he had not been killed by a “white Hispanic” the only people who would have cared would have been his immediate family.

    • “Misaligned racism”??? Just what does that mean!?! I am so sick and tired of black folks like you lecturing us about being outraged about black-on-black crime. Black people have long decried this. Just because it does not make national news or just because you don’t hear about it, does not mean that we’ve been completely and utterly silent about it. There are plenty of local organizations that do their best to address a number of problems within our community. (For example, I seem to recall several community leaders facilitating truces between gangs in their communities.) Additionally, we’ve talked and talked and talked about black-on-black crime and other ills within our community for years. And what is there to protest anyway? This problem has nothing to do with the law or judicial system. It has every bit to do with socio-economic status.

      As far as not seeing or hearing anything when crimes are committed, that is true. But what is also true is that people a day or two later call the police anonymously with tips. Also some of us who live in predominatly black communities, such as I, have no qualms calling the police about anything. I’ve called several times myself. So it’s utter BS to say that we are somehow ok with killing our own. Furthermore, you know damn well our history with the police. You also know damn well that many of us don’t trust them. In times past, they hardly ever served and protected our neighborhoods. At times they ignored us, harassed us and raped our women. It’s just plain ludicrous to expect ALL of us to forget the past and trust the police.

      As for your son’s fear of his peers, why? I find myself fearing a black man coming towards me. At some point your son needs to do like me – take a look in the mirror and do some introspection. I often ask myself why am I afraid? Why would I assume that a black man is more apt to harm me than a white man? Whites commit heinous crimes too, but I don’t think about that when I see a white man. Why? Because, sadly, I’ve bought into the white stereotype of our men. Now, if this is what you’re calling “misaligned racism,” it certainly is.

      Finally, why do we feel compelled to always address what goes on in our community to others? I don’t see white people rushing to address problems within their community. White-on-white crime happens, but I don’t see them posting in blogs/sites telling their people “they are ok with killing their own.” (I don’t give a damn about the rate of murders. The fact is they happen.) They certainly aren’t expressing outrage over the fact that more white men commit mass murders than blacks. It doesn’t appear to be a problem to be solved for them either. Additionally, they have a history of brutality, violence and savagery, and I certainly don’t hear them making any apologies for it. (In fact, they tell us to get over it.) Yet, we’re always asked to look at ourselves and made to feel shame about our community and our ills and that troubles me much.

  15. What about Trayvon Martin’s right to stand his ground, wasn’t Zimmerman told NOT to pursue him? Don’t we all teach our kids that if a stranger is following them to run, get help or fight to get away? So now what do we tell our kids, let a creepy guy follow you, accoust you and you do nothing because your screwed by any outcome?

    Futhermore, so many people are upset and in disbelief over the verdict and the Florida law that allowed it and wonder “what we as a people can do to show that we want justice without being violent towards one another?” I say we boycott Florida. Yes it’s a beautiful place to vacation, I myself visit at least once a year myself, supposed to go for xmas, but I’ll never feel safe taking my boys there again knowing their rights to walk around could be so easily violated. I propose that we boycott Florida to show our disgust for their justice system. If only for a week, a month or indefinitely. Tourism (and the weather) is what makes Florida the place that it is; they pay no taxes due to increased tourism, if their economy is affected by thier laws, maybe, just maybe they will consider changing it.

    • Yolanda, when Trayvon Martin violated the Law when he attacked George Zimmerman, he gave up all legal rights to standing your ground and the fact he was high on illegal dope at the time also creates an obstacle for him. Experts have said that if Trayvon had lived after he attacked George Zimmerman, he would have been charged with several felony crimes. Trayvon was destined only for a life in prison so I don’t see any loss with him being dealt with legally.

  16. Open season on white women and waiters? OJ
    Open season on white truck drivers (LA four)

    If its open season, it appears that most of the “hunters” are black.

  17. I was at a service station yesterday, and 4 young people (probably in their 20s….2 Latinos, and 2 whites) were in a very heated/passionate discussion about Zimmerman’s acquittal. They were adamant that justice wasn’t service, and that Zimmerman should have been charged with some type of violation. My point is that we need to keep in mind that all white people aren’t prejudice, and that generally speaking the younger generation is of a different mindset than a lot of older white people.

  18. Racial Profiling in America has been going on long before my mom was alive and will continue to do so when I’m dead and gone. I respect the jury decision so therefore we all should move forward and honor Trayvon by changing the laws and even though It won’t stop racial profiling It will teach people who do profiling It won’t be tolerated.

  19. An all white Jury is unconstitutional. They didn’t have any African Americans on are the Jury because they know they would have lost.Let’s put a stop to all white Juries. They would never allow an all Black Jury because there would be Justices. To the Eliot on July 14 If you have a job and work with African Americans speak this what your’re saying face to face to one of them and let me known what happen?

  20. It seems to b open season.
    But, correct me if I’m wrong.
    IF THE COPS INSIST I STAY N UR CAR, AND DO NOT CONFRONT….Y WOULD U GET OUT, WITH A GUN, AND CONFRONT? DOESN’T THAT ME U LIABLE FOR ANYTHING THEREAFTER?
    THEN, claim a guy 50-70lbs lighter n weight than u opened a can of woop woop on u!?
    What happened to the MMA TRAINING? U FORGOT THAT, HUH?
    HAD U STAYED N THE CAR,IN MY OPINION, U WOULD HAV NOT HAD TO CRY STAND UR GROUND?
    HE DIDN’T THINK THE COPS WHERE COMIN?
    HOW DOES A MAN WIT A GUN LET SOMEONE GET CLOSE ENUFF TO HIM TO FIGHT?
    IF A FIGHT ENSUED, WHERE’S THE FORENSIC EVIDENCE ON TRAYVON? THE COPS WHERE MINUTES AWAY. THE RAIN WASHED THAT ALLLL AWAY THAT QUICKLY?

  21. our media believes that white people cannot relate to minorities but minorities must relate to white people. Zimmerman followed the kid because he was black, had the boy been white he would still be alive. Anytime there is a racial issue, racial prejudice, racism you have a wall of problems

    • Zimmerman followed him because he was acting suspiciously, out of place, and fit the profile of the rash of burglaries in the area committed by young black males, who also murder over twice as many whites every year as whites murder blacks. If you invoked common sense, intellect, jettisoned your own racism, and researched the issue instead of being told what to think by race “hustlas” profiting from your gullibility you would actually embrace truth instead of attacking it. You would then be able to solve the problems in your community instead of inanely and dishonestly blaming others.

    • Eliot, here’s a chance for you to honestly explain this fact: Trayvon Martin’s book bag was searched by school officials (black) when he was caught on surveillance tagging lockers (aka vandalism). In his bag marijuana residue and a pipe were found along with a large screwdriver, women’s jewelry, wedding rings, and a watch. A reported burglary in the area had the same things stolen. When questioned, Martin said that was not his but his “friend’s”. He did not know his “friend’s” name. How did Trayvon pay for his weed and syzzurp hobbies? Look forward to your response and an intelligent and honest assessment.

      • Yes and the NAACP is trying to force its Norfolk Chapter President, Tristan Breaux, to resign for daring to tell the truth, which (as usual) undermines the race hustle:

        “I wonder why it is that we are always willing to say someone who clearly had a shaky past, was the victim,” Breaux asked in the Facebook post, referring to Trayvon Martin.

  22. White america did not start with the not guilty verdict being disrespectful and treating us continuously like we are still in the days of Jim Crow. Are we pretending that we don’t see and hear the level of disrespect towards the President and the first family; it speaks volumes. When are we going to pull together as a race and demand equal justice and treatment? When are we going to pull together and STOP looking to white america,for acceptance, cause they continue to show black america that we have NO value. We can do it because we are so damn busy bashing each other and finding fault.
    “Pre Mecca” Malcolm X; is this where we are returning to?

    • Millie, black-America has a tremendous value, just look at the value of the billions and billions in dollars of money being wasted by welfare recipients that are comprised mostly of blacks, at least according to the statistics.

      • @Jancorey the welfare system was created for whites, FDR created all of that back in the time of

        the Depression so blacks do not make up all welfare. please get your information right, before you start running your WHITE DEVIL MOUTH… YOu seriously do not know what you are talking about,,GET IT RIGHT WHITE BOY OR WHITE GIRL… be-careful how you talk about what you think you know… GO back to school or the Library….

      • Joey, the welfare system has almost all black recipients on it, disproportionately-to-race, look it up. Facts do scare many people and I am sorry I scared you with real facts. Don’t take that personally, I am simply trying to help uninformed and uneducated people out there, especially to the facts of this where George Zimmerman was acquitted because he was found not guilty of any crime in his response to the beating he received from that illegally-high-thug-Martin.

      • TM wasn’t ‘illegally’ high and he wasn’t a thug, I know that’s disappointing to you….in the meantime, georgie boy was on drugs but wasn’t introduced in the case….had a criminal record for attacking a police officer (female) and having attacked his ex….

      • Jewellthief, the coroner’s report indicated Trayvon was high at the time he assaulted Mr. Zimmerman and the evidence indicated him to be a “wanna-be-gangsta” which many indicate the “thug-mentality”. JT, looks like you missed many parts of the trial so your out-of-touch rant is actually worthless to us educated viewers of the trial. May I suggest to you to just deal with the facts of the case and that may help to minimize your stupid comments and attacks against those that are better-informed than yourself. It’s obvious you remain jealous of people who are better informed. Mr. Zimmerman was on prescription medication which is legal, Trayvon was high on illegal drugs which is a violation of Law and yet another crime Trayvon committed the night he attacked Mr. Zimmerman. Facts, it’s an easier approach and will make one appear more logical than you imo.

      • Regardless of all the statistical data that you may want or need to share, and all the other foolery you need to cite, this is what I do know for sure; THE LORD is gonna see George Zimmerman, the jurors and those under the table prosecutors about Trayvon Martin being gunned down and a not guilty verdict being rendered. Mark my word. Whether you believe in God or whom ever you believe in> LORD go see them all about it.

      • Millie, the Lord will make George Zimmerman an angel someday after he’s in his 100’s and he enters into heaven. I expect he will likely outlive all of his doubters and attackers, he is a Saint as well as a protector.

      • If your comment wasn’t so sad I’d laugh. I see that you are a non believer, but the day will surely come when the light bulb is forced to go off in your head and you will be reminded of your lame comment. Things and situations have a way of coming back to you full circle and we are left with asking ourselves why did this happen. George Zimmerman will one day have to come clean with the true accounts of his actions. Don’t believe me. Keep living, Life is interesting.

      • Millie, your intoxication-level should not be a part of this blog to determine whether you actually understand the facts of this vase imo. I have never said I was a non-believer in Jesus Christ in your claim and allegation during your intoxication-episodes so you are clearly not understanding anything I, or any one else here, has tried to teach you about your own ignorance and this case. Things do not have a tendency to come back as you claim except to uninformed and uneducated people like yourself Millie. Facts speak for themselves, no matter how high you are on dope right now like Trayvon was high on dope. I expect you might have the same pot dealer looking at your attacks and your endless rants against the facts. Stay safe Millie, and make sure your joints are extinguished totally before you pass out yet again.

      • Now, I will LOL, cause I see your light bulb is flickering. Your comment is all over the place. Shook you, did I? You may give out your rants here but ALWAYS REMEMBER >He sits high and looks low.

      • Millie, my comment was spot-on-target as I have gotten 29 responses already from copies of your comments I posted on several other sites, not all on WordPress. Every single one has something negative to say about your rants and some even want to know your exact location of GoogleMap to pay their respects to you, is that something I should forward to them about your unfounded and illogical attacks against real victims? let me know. If you need armed security, just let us all know too. Thanks a bunch. stay safe.

      • You and those 29 people that you write about must clearly understand that I am NOT Trayvon Martin. He is the young man that George Zimmerman murdered in cold blood. That situation will not be repeated. I see the parallel with you and George Zimmerman. When you are not capable of using your words, which is how you seem to operate, in a cowardly manner, you resort to violence. Your threatening words are clearly documented and have been forwarded. So I suspect that those that you are sending after me;your 29 responses, as well as yourself, will be contacted soon and very soon. You’ve painted that picture, now you must live with and be held accountable for your actions and threats. One must always have and be allowed to voice their opinions but the threats have crossed boundaries that must and will be addressed. Understand this. Whatever information you think you are able to gather about me won’t come close to you knowing who I am. I believe in and will allow the legal system to defend me.

      • Millie, first off I didn’t read your entire comment/rant/attack, I stopped after you convinced me you do not understand the facts of this. Simple as that, and why you appear to be a racist bigot is beyond me, I just deal with the facts of this case. Sober up Millie and come back here when you can have a meaningful exchange of ideas. I just do not support racism as you do. Best of luck to you in your apparent drunkenness or medication-overdose Millie. Do you need us to contact 911 for you, they will respond to your IP-address within minutes. Let us know and good luck with your difficulties.

      • Received confirmation that you are a current mental patient, is that your carrer goal?

      • @ millie do not even waste your time on this website with Jancorey because whatever the comments are its just someone making a statement and giving out wrong information, I do not answer any of there comments not with that Warrior PROject, pay attention they might be working for THE CIA so lets be careful on what we say,, he might be spying on us. YOU know how they send other black people to spy on us. and they give us a position you know how we can act. so I do not even bother.

    • Millie, the problem is that you expect more than you give. You can show gross disrespect to a white president, but oh no, don’t criticize Obama the Messiah! Bush was ripped daily by the news media which lies, distorts, and covers for Obama. The mainstream media is little more than a propaganda arm for Obama.

      As for the rest, blaming white people for everything is played out and getting old. Therein rests the problem: Lack of personal accountability and blame. if white people disappeared blacks in America would be murdering each other at a higher rate and civilization would collapse, like Detroit or Chicago.s And what about black racism? You kill double the number of whites as whites kill blacks. A recent Rasmussan poll showed whites and blacks both agree that blacks are more racist than whites (look it up).

  23. I WILL TELL MY CHILDREN, IF SOME WHITE PERSON IS FOLLOWING THEM RUN HIDE FIND THE BIGGEST WEAPON, AND WHEN THEY RUN BY LOOKING FOR YOU SMASH THEIR FACE IN, AND SAY YOU WERE STANDNG YOUR GROUND

    • If they follow your advise Joseph Winfield, they will spend decades in prison if not their whole life in prison for committing the crimes you are directing them to do. Is that what a real parent does to their own kids?

  24. As you can see how some white people feel about black people. Thing have not change much at age 15 I was burn over 95% of my body in South Carolina, a white started the fire I had to live with it.
    Murdered in the work place, and got away with it.

    I had worked in the steel mill for about 30 years and there are hateful and racist people in the work place I have worked all of my life. The steel mill closed after the owner ( white man) robbed it and cause the company to file bankruptcy and stole our esop money for retirement for about 3,000 to 5,000 people. At age 50 I went to work for a big tube mill for 8 years it closed and at age 60 I move to NC and got a job with a trucking Co (Freightliner). I worked there for 6 years. Black people do want to work and make money just like the white man. You have to fine out what makes white people mad. One thing is a white man with a penny hates is a nigger with a nickel. Let’s say they are two men working in the sewer. One white and the other is black. The black man goes down in the sewer and he fills the bucket and hands it up to the white man, after a while the white man asks the black men to come out of the hole and he goes down in the sewer why? Because he said that he did not want a nigger handing him no sh-t. I have worked with all kinds of people. The white man cannot play fair. He has always cheated and will always cheat, lie,steal. My brother was killed when someone pushed him in a ladle of molten steel about 2500 degrees. The white man does not like it when a black person makes more money or work above them. About two or three years after this happen and the mill had closed a white man saw me at a store. I did not know him but he had worked in the dept where my brother had worked. He remembered me because I was a foreman in the melt shop. After talking for awhile he let me know that he had worked in the plant that my brother worked. I said “oh my brother was in an accident in that shop”. He said to me, “That was no accident”. About two or three years later someone told too me that a white man confessed on his death bed that he had push my brother from behind causing him fo fall into the ladle. So there is Racism in the work place. The words of comfort that I received from some of the racist people that I worked with was “it should of been you”. I hope that the person who pushed my brother and those racist people that I worked with who are also dead that they rot in hell.

  25. Open season on black males? So, what has changed? The focus needs to be where is the bulk of the crime is originating from, that’s not racist, just factual.

    • ‘bulk’ of crime is not on all black people….if that were the case, I’d be a criminal, my sisters and my brothers-in-law would be too….and that’s not the case….

      • Jewellthief, you are wrong again. Proportionally, blacks are responsible for more crimes than any other race, look it up, it’s a fact. I realize you do not understand what the term “fact” is which is why you attack those who are better-informed than yourself and I do find pity for your ignorance on this topic. But, don’t despair, there is help for you, and your cure is simple; read and research in the right areas to help to fill in some of those areas you remain quite deficient and remiss of intelligence. Your jealousy is profound, but curable imo.
