Op-Ed: Exposing the real ‘TRAY-VESTY’

By Meg Storm

TRAY-VESTY. That was the quippy headline plastered on the front cover of the New York Post on Sunday morning. Meanwhile, so-called journalists and legal experts flooded the airwaves using words like “stunning,” “shocking,” and “surprising” to describe the jury’s decision to acquit George Zimmerman.

But the most “stunning,” “shocking,” and “surprising” aspect of this sensationalized trial is not that Zimmerman is now a free man (though it’s safe to say his life has been irreparably changed). The most “stunning,” “shocking,” and “surprising” aspect of this trial is the overwhelming hypocrisy of the media and the leaders of the black community when it comes to race and justice.

The disturbing trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor, Kermit Gosnell, was almost completely ignored by the mainstream media because it was considered a “local crime story.”

Forget about the fact that Gosnell was primarily murdering minority babies. Forget about the fact that Gosnell operated two separate offices – one for wealthy clients, who were primarily white, and one for poorer clients, who were primarily not white. It took weeks of horrid testimony for “news” outlets like ABC, CBS, and NBC to even acknowledge the trial existed.

Likewise, we never heard a peep from President Obama about the Gosnell trial. Instead, Press Secretary Jay Carney told us, “The president does not and cannot take a position on an ongoing trial, so I won’t as well.”

Why?

I could speculate for days about why the media and the president didn’t want to comment on a story that exposed the underbelly of abortion. Heaven forbid they appear to be waging a “war on women” – but that is another story for another day.

One thing, however, is certain. The “local crime story” and “the president can’t comment on an ongoing trial” logic was not extended to the George Zimmerman trial.

“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” President Obama said earlier this year. “I think [Trayvon's parents] are right to expect that all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves, and we are going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened.”

Yes, if President Obama had a son, he could look like Martin. But as President of the United States, he was out-of-line to insert himself into the national conversation.

So-called leaders of the black community, like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, were already rallying in the streets, demanding justice for a young black male killed at the hands of a middle-aged man of mixed ethnicity, and all the president did was add fuel to that fire. President Obama should have known better.

Looking specifically at the actions of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson in the aftermath of Trayvon Martin’s death, one cannot help but be discouraged by the state of racial politics.

“I think that this is an atrocity… It is probably one of the worst situations that I have seen,” Sharpton said Saturday night. “What this jury has done is establish a precedent that when you are young and fit a certain profile, you can be committing no crime… and be killed and someone can claim self-defense… we had to march to even get a trial and even at trial, when he’s exposed over and over again as a liar, he is acquitted.”

He went on to add that Saturday was “a sad day in the country” and “a slap in the face to those that believe in justice in this country.”

Jackson sang a similar tune. In an interview with KPNX he said, “[Zimmerman] pursued him. Police told him to not. He did it over their objections. Ultimately he killed him. Now he walks away free… Here’s an unarmed young man going home, attending his business. Zimmerman assumes he should not be in the neighborhood. He actually lives there – that’s what racial profiling is… I would think there might be a civil suit filed, no doubt. There will be justice department intervention, no doubt. So this case really is… is not over.”

As a country, we have come a long way from the Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and ‘60s. While tragedies like this expose that we still have a long way to go, we must be able to trust that our media will be able to provide an objective account of what is otherwise an emotional issue. And we must also be able to trust that our federal government will not insert itself into cases for political gain.

In the case of the George Zimmerman trial, this was simply not true.

One can only hope we learn from these mistakes.

    I saw all the networks during this trial and FOX News used “yellow journalism” like any other network did. Fox was mostly pro-Zimmerman and MSNBC pro-Treyvon, it was like seeing UFC promo in action . . . Please dont tell FOX is Fair & Balanced ’cause whoever think that, don’t know crap about journalism and objective reporting . . . That’s why we are so divided, we believe whatever any network say about the other . . . we are doomed if we continue this path of division and intolerence. No one will save us from ourselves, no tea parties, no liberals, no GOP, no Democrat, no Libertarian. We only have pundits or political leaning folks in the media, who think they are reporters . . . what a shame!

      Now
    The Federal Government is Completely Disregarding the “Double Jeopardy”
    Laws, that state a person CANNOT Be Tried Twice or More for the SAME
    Crime.  He has been Acquited at the State Level (State Supreme Courts),
    how can the Fed Gov’t Legally have Another Trial for the SAME Crime???

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department said Sunday it is looking
    into the shooting death of Trayvon Martin to determine whether federal
    prosecutors will file criminal civil rights charges now that George
    Zimmerman has been acquitted in the state case.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rigoberto.serrano.39 Pachy Serrano

    Federal law oversees State Law, plus the DOJ is looking into it, but that does not mean they will win a civil case in Court. They might lose in Court as well, but why not file a case against Mr. Z? he killed a minor in “self-defense”, but he still did it, didn’t he?

  • Draxx

    I had done operations in Central America and people are dead because of me being ordered to do so, some were of Treyvon’s age and why is it OK to kill others simply because a Gov’t Says To Do It…?

    Good becomes bad, Bad is made into good.

    The Federal government under Obama is determined to try, convict and jail a man who has been found innocent by a jury, and therefore show by example that they do not need to obey any laws; anyone will become fair game for political oppression.

    Welcome to the new tyranny of Obama.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    This is politically motivated, as practically everything with the left and with Obama is politically motivated: gun control or confiscation.

    Watch for some kind of firearms legislation entitled the Trayvon Martin gun control legislation act of 2013

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    No zeal, this is political across the board; and since Obama has invested so much into it with his ‘If I had a son…” statement, now for him, its personal and a matter of revenge at all consts.

    I tell you what disgusts me more, the media not the African-American so-called leaders.

    Just take a look at the picture at the top from the New York Post.

    It has Zimmerman smiling, of course they are not ‘trying’ to whined up the hate.

  • Hop Sing

    did you not see the trial and eyewitness testimony? Trayvon stood over six foot tall. At night, no one would assume he was a “minor” especially when he seemed acting suspicious in a burglary ridden neighborhood that GZ happened to patrol that night. He was wearing a hood. How could anyone tell, at night, if TM was a minor let alone black? After having Mr.Z’s nose pounded and on the ground Trayvon was the one on top of Mr.Z saying “Tonight You are going to die..” as he was bashing Mr. Z’s head. GZ’s actions of self defense sounded plausible at this point of their altercation.

    Key eyewitness affirmed there was a scuffle, like a struggle on the ground which would account for GZ’s fear that he thought TZ was reaching for his gun. Screams of “Help” is heard and the gunshot. The defense’ made a very clear argument with GZ on the bottom of the scuffle screaming for help after TM telling him he was going to die that night reaching for that gun, that GZ was acting in self defense.

    Thank you for revealing that you are an ignorant twit determined to see that an INNOCENT man is punished despite being innocent. You might want to go discover that “trayvon” was a thug, drug user and drug pusher suspended from school for THEFT and had a reputation for violence. You might also stop and discover that “trayvon” was the aggressor and could have been safely at home but went BACK to attack Zimmerman. Ignorant trolls like you belong in the sewer.

    I agree that this is a travesty, and I pray that George can regain some semblance of a normal life. Little disappointed over the bandwagon jumping by Glenn. Trial has been going on for weeks, and just now he starts to address it. Not only that, his first mention of George is ” I don’t like him”, but certainly getting some mileage out of him now. Should have had his back from the beginning Glenn..

    This admin is all about reparations, and in many forms. Taxes, EPA, DOJ, and racebaiting! Evil successful people(white), are the root of all evil. When blacks kill blacks, it’s ESP(white)’s fault. When it’s anyone else killing blacks, it’s everybodies fault. This clown has set race relations back 30 years. The media and the left with their “you don’t like O’s policies because he’s black” wolf crying, have fed this anger, and these very bigmouths, are blacks real enemy, they just won’t see it!! Just like Japan said after Pearl Harbor, I think we woke the sleeping giant… Careful progressives, you might too!!

     Just because they can file doesn’t mean they should. What about George’s civil rights? And self defense is not a violation of civil rights..

  • Tatiana

    One blow in the face by black hooligan boot as a young woman had just received during robbery in San Francisco, which left her unconscious, makes your thinking about reality of race relations very clear. Talk to immigrants who spend first decades of immigration near black districts. Visit any black neighborhood with barred windows and sharp grills around like in war zone. You will not need any Fox TV to become a vicious racist. It is very difficult to move people from African stone age to industrial age just in 200 years. .They are justifiably angry, because with 40% unemployed youth (look at Rachel Jeanteel, M.Trayvon witness. Is she employable?. Illiterate, aggressive, lazy, on drugs.
    It is God’s miracle that such people like Herman Cain or Allen West arrived. You need to be real hero to overcome such terrible culture.

    I am one of the few people in American who was NOT paying much attention to the Zimmerman trial, so I didn’t have much of an opinion as to his guilt or innocence…until I watched this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bF-Ax5E8EJc 

    IF what this video says is true, we need to be turning against the MSM with a vengeance, and the nation owes Mr. Zimmerman an apology.

  • Square.Shooter

    George Zimmerman was NOT GUILTY after he shot Trayton Martin. He didn’t flee the scene, nor did he deny shooting Trayton. the police did not wish to charge GZ because it was self defense. The shooting victim ambushed GZ from behind and hit him in the face and caused him bleed from his nose, then wrestled GZ to the ground and sat him and and began to slam his head and blamed his head on the concrete and and GZ was told by TM ” You going  to die tonight.” 

    GZ was transported to Police Dept. and was not charged. GZ had probable cause to protect himself under Florida Laws.

    Then, President Queer decided to stupidly make a comment that was broadcast to the whole world. Then it started, Every Department in the US Government  jNAACP The FBI, DOJ  jumped on Geeorge Zimmerman. 

    Under  outside pressure GZ was charged with  2nd murder. 

    The court kept all of Trayton little secrets about his dealings about his drug problems, His being suspended from school, his fighting in school, punching a school bus driver, etc etc.

    Now, The president bought a lot of votes from the blacks and the Latino’s and they jumped on it.. Maybe the mexican people are educated enough to not ever vote for any candidate that he 
    (the president) would endorse for any candidate. My reason for saying this that Obama does not care about the Mexicans, Blacks, and Whites who voted for him
    The government caused this to be Racial, that was not the case
    True, Trayton died  because he became a thug, He was not the good little boy of 12 or 13  the news media plastered on every TV screen in the world. Trayton  was a tall athlete who was strong.  It appears the Media cannot be trusted anymore.

    I hope I have not said anything that would cause anyone to be upset. (unless they need it) 

    Thank You

     I watch both the MSM and Fox. It is arguable that Fox is Yellow Journalism.  Can you refute the facts that Fox brings to light on occasion?  Fox would not even be needed if the MSM could be depended on to report anything but a liberal agenda.  Fox is a popular as it is because they do not toe a Progressive view point.  The path of division you espouse would not be, if in fact, the MSM could be counted on to apolitical.  They aren’t and can’t.

    Black Reparation. As Geo. Zimmerman was getting his nose and head bashed in while being promised  that he was going to die, what else could
    he do?  Martin had four minutes away from Zimmerman and chose to return
    and confront him and begin to attack him. Finally reaching for Zimmerman’s
    gun Zimmerman had not much choice but put a stop to the dangerous situation. And, the ” Rule of Law,” should prevail but those who disdain this
    are the un-lawful.

    Who is Next George Zimmerman?

     

    Russian immigrants used to start their American lives
    near black districts. They never saw black people before, did not have any
    prejudices, but this experience turned them into vicious anti-black racists.

    Almost all elderly people In San Francisco, who had misfortune to live
    near Afro-Americans, had been attacked (including my 80 year old mother),
    robbed of miserable $5-20, and some murdered. All by young black
    criminals. The horrible story happened to the old Russian guy, whose
    pocket two 15 year old black girls cut by razor and giggled, when he was
    bleeding, dying on the sidewalk. Black youths see frail old people as their
    legitimate prey.

    Three
    weeks ago on “Safeway” parking young black brutally hit woman with his boot in the face during
    robbery and left her unconscious. Video.

    While I was writing this text, amount of
    homicides in black populated Oakland,
    CA had risen from 51 to 53.

    Today Vietnamese and Korean
    communities in
    San Francisco are the
    same size as the black one. There are no fear of Vietnamese or Koreans
    among Russians. They are quiet, working hard in their hair-nail salons and
    restaurants. Blacks are feared by Vietnamese, Koreans, and Russians, by everyone.
     Mostly by blacks themselves. The only
    place, where all windows have bars and balconies with sharp grills, is
    Afro-American district. Oakland,
    CA has highest amount of 911
    calls in the nation.

    Black
    leaders blame criminality in black neighborhoods on white racism.

         Why immigrants, who came to this country
    150 years after abolition of slavery, forced to participate in this constant ritual
    of collective guilt? Why people afraid to say that black crime is horrific and
    black children are the only ones, who even being bussed to school, run into
    opposite direction?  I live near school
    and see it.

    Media
    perpetuation of white guilt narrative had resulted in a spread of nationwide
    reverse racism and election of affirmative action president.  

    High priests of reversed racism Al Sharpton, Jessie
    Jackson, and Eric Holder, all Obama’s dinner companions, today are serving their
    high mass, trying to sacrifice George Zimmerman, who had absolutely right
    assumption about black boy T. Martin, already on drugs and suspended from
    school.

    Even acquitted George Zimmerman’s head demanded by black
    “civil  leaders”. They accuse him of
    ‘racial profiling.”   Why they trying to accuse people for instinct
    of self-preservation? If you meet a black sheep on the road, you are not
    scared: previously no one was attacked by black sheep. If you meet young black male
    on the road and scared, it is called common knowledge or instinct of
    self-preservation.  Only liberal American
    Jews, who live in Marin
    County, with no blacks in
    25 miles, have different opinion.

    In accusations of racism “Innocent until proven guilty”
    does not exist. If accused of racism, you already guilty. Especially, when the
    mob rules.

    Black civil leaders (I call them sharptons) enjoy their
    power, inciting mobs.  Violent black mobs
    already started pogroms in Oakland, Los Angeles, and Cleveland.
    They just need a cause for violence. They do not need to go to work tomorrow.
    They claim that due to racial injustice it is no jobs for them could be found. Strangely
    enough around the corner Mexican immigrants are supporting families with the
    same non-existing jobs.

    Blaming everything on white racism, on American injustice,
    sharptons are releasing black folks from responsibility for their own lives. They
    unite them to fight imaginable monster, instead of fighting illiteracy,
    illegitimacy, single motherhood, and mentality of laziness, when sense of
    entitlement prevails over the sense of responsibility.    

    We saw Zimmerman’s show trial like in the Soviet Union, with mandate from the President about
    victim as his potential son. 

    Only 6 women jurors stood between us and the country turned
    to mob rule.

                Immigrants
    from the Soviet Union, we already lived in a
    country ruled by mob of slaves. We all know that former slaves are the worst
    masters. They ruined Russia and
    not being stopped will ruin America.
     Slaves do not know better. They can
    emanate and procreate only slavery.

    More than million of
    highly educated immigrants from the Soviet Union, whose parents survived Hitler
    and Stalin, we can do something to save America, best place in the world,
    from invasion of internal barbarians.  Inoculated
    against socialist slavery, we obligated to explain to Americans (including our
    own children) how dangerous it is to let slaves to rule the country from the false
    sense of guilt.

    People, who wanted to
    come out from slavery to freedom, did it already, as such African-Americans like
    Allen West, Herman Cain, Ben Carson. Thank God, looking at them I understand
    that I am NOT a racist, that it is not a question of color. The socialist
    slavery hustler I hate the most is lily white Nancy Pelosi.

    This time we were lucky. It
    was 6 women jurors between rule of law and the rule of the mob. If we let sharptons,
    jacksons, and holders  to turn the country
    into the pit of abomination run by lowlife elements, next time George Zimmerman
    (it can be any of us) will be found guilty.

    There is so much racial hatred surrounding this case – it’s amazing. But tell me why ‘NO ONE’ is addressing black on black crime which is rampant in Chicago, Miami, Dallas, Memphis, Detroit and other large cities where there is a large body of blacks?  Racism is a sin – ALL prejudice is a sin and no matter where or from whom hatred comes it is a sin. The Al Sharpton’s and Jesse Jackson’s of the world will have a crude awakening as they stand before God – they are the kings of hate and prejudice – and guilty before God.  And what about this?  Why is there no media on it?  Because it’s more PC to hate whites than blacks?  Shameful.

    A work of fiction.  A white college Republican club preppy made the video of two poll watchers in Philly in a black neighborhood in a black precinct in the 2008 election.  Fox News played the video 95 times in a few weeks, spliced togerther with an UNRELATED clip of a black man yelling about cracker babies. The  DOJ investigated this while BUSH was still president.  Despite DOJ letters sent to all voters,  not ONE PERSON said they had been “intimidated.”   But black districts HAVE suffered from GOP dirty tricks for decades…robocalls saying  “To lessen the wait time, Republicans vote Tuesday, and Democrats vote Wednesday” or telling people in line that if they had any past due bills they would be arrested when they tried to vote.

    Are there still people who listen to what Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton say? If there are, then they must see the racial bigotry of these two supposedly “national spokesmen” for the black community have repeatedly demonstrated in their remarks. Justice is not what they seek. Facts do not matter to them. The only thing that matters is their own personal aggrandizement as they try too remain relevant in national politics. The only card that they have to play is the race card in their attempt to sway the masses to their misguided way of looking at things.The very people they are trying to sway are now seeing the motive behind their continued attacks on the justice decisions that they think are flawed because they supposedly are stacked against the black community.

    If they really are for the black community why don’t they deal with the black on black crime in their city and state? Could it be that it is because there are no national headlines to be grabbed in those cases? Could it be that they wanted to sensationalize their perceived injustice for one  at the expense of another because of their own misguided ideas? I’ll bet they were sorely disappointed in the lack of civil disobedience that occured when the case was decided on the facts and not the innuendos of the President, Mr. Sharpton and Mr. Jackson. I think the family of Trayvon Martin, who were sadden by the verdict, and who, I believe a majority of the American people feel sorrow for, still called for restraint in any response to the decision while these called for civil disobedience. Trayvon’s parents impressed me as God fearing members of our society who chose to, despite their heartbreak at losing their son, called for peace in their community.

    Aided by the national media, these men seek personal headlines that continue to divide this nation along racial lines. In the 1960′s for Mr. Jackson, it was between blacks and whites, today it is between black and everybody else. Mr. Sharpton has continually made race an issue in his political career whether it was relevant to the situation or not. And the President of the United States has no business inserting himself into local police affairs at the expense of the duly sworn protectors of the citizen’s right of protection under the law.

    It is a sad thing when a young person dies. Period. But why is not all those race mongers out there talking about the twelve black kids killed in Chicago over the fourth of July weekend, because they where killed by other blacks, and for some reason that don’t seem to matter to the media, or Jackson, Sharpton, or the Black Panthers. If someone they can make believe is white enough kills a black kid, it’s all of a sudden a civil rights tragedy. Either you care for kids getting killed or you don’t, but don’t make a national case out of it unless you are willing to go to bat for the rest of them. Untill then, shut the fuck up! Pardon the language, but I am sick and tired of them just trying to tear us apart. You want to stop racism, then try to understand there is only one race on this planet, the human race and we all belong to it.

    If someone who was larger and stronger than you had broken your nose and banging your head on the concrete, what would you have done?  Would you have let him kill you?  Zimmerman was doing his job as a security officer.  If Trayvon had respect for authority he would have gone home, or he would have addressed Zimmerman’s concerns, not try to kill him. Trayvon is the real racist with his comment to his girlfriend about Zimmerman. The Reverends Jessie and Al should be preaching to the out-of-control blacks that if you live by the sword you will die by the sword.  These black protestors give the respectable blacks a bad rap.  No one has a right to destroy property.  Trayvon’s criminal background was hidden from the public.  His parents should be ashamed at how he turned out.  How did Trayvon’s parents fail their son should be the question and how can they help other parents to raise sons who have respect for authority and teach them to be law-abiding citizens and that it is wrong to steal other people’s properties. Instead the thug is being honored and the parents are financially benefiting, while a decent human being like Zimmerman is being punished with threats.  Whatever happened to this world when we don’t reprimand youths like Trayvon (see his school records of crime) and try to make him accountable, not hide his crimes?  The media always flashed a photo of Trayvon as a child.  In another year he would have been old enough to be in our military.  Trayvon was no child.

    The most racist single group of people in these United States is the liberal media. They act at times as though there sole purpose is to incite a major race war!

    Frank, you need to get over your white guilt. YOU didn’t own any slaves.

    If, on the other hand, you are a racist, that is a whole different kettle of fish, and you should be ashamed of yourself!

    The real tray-vesty is the ignorance of the under-educated American masses, and those they let influence them (our pathetic national media) that are too stupid to understand how the anchoring legal concepts of “Innocent until proven guilty” combined with “potential for doubt of the allegation” make any jury irresponsible that convicts someone with these benefits. Lynch the teachers union(s) for calling these people educated before you lay a hand on George Zimmerman.

    The facts are pretty much out. What the predator prosecutor Angela Corey did in persecuting Zimmerman is the real attrocity. This was a show trial. Egged on by the media, Race Hustlers and a president who elected himself Chief Prosecutor of the Land. Everything that corrupt prosecutors are able to do…was done in the Zimmerman Show Trial. Evidence was withheld. Legal procedure was totally ignored and the whole thing was based on race politics. I emailed Angela Corey’s office to let her know at least one citizen knows her for the predatory monster that she is. I wish people were more aware of the fact that this child abuser tried a twelve year old child for murder-AS AN ADULT! If there were “justice” in this country her face would be on the “mug shots”  of those her office has convicted that are paraded front and center on her office’s website. If there were any “justice” in this country Anglea Corey would be looking OUT from behind cell bars.

    Regarding voting. You need
    to raise voting age at least to 21. Person who is not trusted to buy a can of
    bear, can not be trusted to decide, who will be the president of the most
    powerful country in the world.

    Education in the country
    abysmally in the hands of crazy liberals, who live in off the wall world.
    They defile young people, destroying even this small fear of immorality they
    bring to colleges from homes.

    You need to understand what
    made America
    great and the beacon among the nations. The whole world sings” I want to
    be an American!”

    This is MORALITY.
    Judeo-Christian ethics, bible education. “Righteous nations will
    rise.” I am not a religious freak. I used to be a lecturer of Marxist
    philosophy and taught atheism in the Soviet Union.

    When we understood that we
    became slaves owned by government – this is what happened in ALL socialist
    countries –  and America
    goes into same direction now - we ran away (God it was difficult).

    The tragedy in America now that
    blinded by false sense of guilt for slavery, Americans allowed former slaves to
    rule the country. Slavery was and IS absolutely accepted social order in many
    countries today, especially in the countries American blacks came from (Arabs
    sell black slaves in Mali
    and Sudan
    for price of lunch),.

    Now it is white
     Americans, who are raped, murdered, and robbed with impunity. As a
    business woman yesterday I almost cried, when black thugs had been destroying
    beautiful stores in Oakland
    during the riot, not the first one in this year. . No one of these animals
    built anything in his life. I know how much business owner works in order to
    create and sustain business, not mentioning that he gives jobs to people and to himself.

    All those thugs live on
    taxpayers money. Not only they robbing an honest taxpayer through government,,
    forcing to feed them, they receive a sick pleasure from destroying his
    business (the only entertainment they understand and can afford), which actually feeds them.

    Well said Tatiana.   The
    outcome of the Zimmerman/Martin case has sparked violent acts in various towns
    and cities across the U.S. in black communities. Is anyone really surprised? Of
    course not. In the U.S. violent blacks pray for times like this so they can
    create havoc for what they perceive as a justifiable reason. Loot stores, hurt
    people of other races, and destroy property, all in the name of justifiable
    revenge. The only thing more pathetic than the actions or reasoning of this
    small group of people is the utter ignorance of their tiny minds. These people
    are bred into a world of ignorance and hate by their parents, their parents’
    parents and so on. There is no amount of money in taxpayer-funded programs that
    can help these people; they are forever doomed to a perpetual cycle of high
    school dropout, gang banging teenage parents bringing more ignorance into the
    world.

    Angela Corey is alleged to have omitted material exculpatory facts, such as photographs of the wounds on George Zimmerman’s head, which go to his defense of “self defense.”
    She was aware when she submitted an affidavit that it did not contain the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. She deliberately withheld evidence that supported Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense.

    “I think that this is an atrocity… It is probably one of the worst situations that I have seen,” Sharpton said Saturday night. “What this jury has done is establish a precedent that when you are young and fit a certain profile, you can be committing no crime… and be killed and someone can claim self-defense
    I think he’s glossing over the fact that Trayvon attacked Zimmerman, but I sort of have to agree with him on the profiling. It’s sad, but it’s true and we all do it every single day. Maybe it’s not based on skin color, but it’s based off of something; whether it be the way a person dresses, the color of their hair, their smiles, and so much more, we profile people and we judge them based on nothing more then superficial crap.

    Hopefully they will retry Zimmerman and find in guilty. This site is just full of old white men that feel that they are entitle too this country. We will get Zimmerman sooner or later…

    The media is a travesty and a hot bed of bias. Trayvon assaulted George, not the other way around. And now we find out from Rachel’s interview on Piers Morgan that his motivation for trying to beat George’s head in was that Rachel suggested that George was gay and was stalking him. So it was gay bashing in addition to anti-latino racism that motivated Trayvon to attack George. When will the race pimps quit?
