The Zimmerman Case: Exposing the Racist Hypocrites


 
NOTE: I feel this is an important conversation we must have in this country and that folks on all sides have hurt each other in one way or another. The time is over for name calling and violent protests. It starts in the small communities then grows, this must be a grass roots movement for racial peace on all fronts. This can not come from the government on high, it must come from the people!!!
 
First let me say that my prayers go out to the Martin family and the Zimmerman family, none of the family members asked or deserved to be a part of this.
 
  A long time ago, an honored leader once said he dreamed of a day where a man would be judged by the content of his character, not the color of his skin. That dream is still a blink on the horizon. It's funny how the very folks Dr. King was trying to pass his dream on to, mainly his black brethren, always seem to judge people by the color of their skin. If you look at any major court case in this country that include members of the black race and a race of a different hue, blacks will always back their brother or sister, no matter what the evidence says. Not all black folks, and I don't say "African American" because there are white people from Africa, follow the herd, but a majority do. Almost all blacks who voted, voted for Obama, that's a fact! If some white people had not voted for Obama, he would not have been elected, I wonder who looked at skin color there? They cheered when O.J. was acquitted and now the protest and riot because Zimmerman "got off" in their minds. Yes, I said "riot'. They used this verdict as an excuse to block freeways, hurt people and trash a Walmart out in California.
 
 I do believe people should be judged on how they behave, not how they look. Here's my question, and this is not about Trayvan, when someone IS judged by their character and found to be a piece of filth because of the way they act, why do people still say " You just say that because he's/she's black"? A black member of the Atlanta Falcons tweeted that the jurors in the Zimmerman case should  " Go home and kill themselves", this is a lot worse than Paula Deen saying the 'N" word thirty years ago about a piece of crap that put a gun to her head. Why is White still a member of the team? Because he gets a pass, no pun intended. He's black in America, he can say evil things and get away with it. I grew up in GA. and have been a life long Falcons fan, not anymore until he's off the team. Just my way off giving them the finger! My feeling is if you support people who have a low values then you must have no values.
 
 Why are the racist hypocrites exposed, you may ask? Let's just take one city out of the thousands here in the USA to help pull the wool up. In Chicago, there have been several young blacks gunned down in the inner city so far this summer. Are their lives worth less than Mr. Martin's?  I would think not, but they won't make the national seen because they were killed by people of the same color, content of character does not count either. I think a majority of American people have figured out why this happens. They know why Jessie and Sharpton raise their shrill voices when a white and a black are involved ( although Zimmerman is only 1/8 white, also 1/8 black by the way and took a black girl to his high school prom, but let's over look all that, wouldn't be good for business) in any kind of national court case. They have to keep the gravy train running, and fanning the flames of racism pays them very well. They don't have time to worry about the brothers killing each other on Chicago, they have to get down south where the White/Hispanic man is preying on young blacks. Then the sheep follow behind them, some peaceful, some not, but all judging Zimmerman guilty. To them, he was guilty all along, even before the first shred of evidence was heard. Now, I ask you, who's judging by skin color and not the content of a man's character?
 
A young man's life was lost, that's terrible. Why don't we use this moment to ask why we don't trust each other and change the behaviors that cause the mistrust? You can't change the color of a man's skin, but HE can change the content of his character!
