Justice for Trayvon vs. 9,000 Dead Each Year

No matter what the color of your skin or what you think of the jury’s verdict in deciding that George Zimmerman acted in self-defense, the real travesty is in witnessing the race hucksters in the media baiting people into believing that Trayvon’s tragedy represents the great story of our time when 9,000 blacks are murdered every year!

It is disgusting to watch the hustlers who make their livings stirring the pot and spreading the racial divide, it is despicable to see people like Jesse Jackson, Jr. and Al Sharpton trying their best to inspire mobs to riot over one tragic incident of a Hispanic killing an African-American when 94% of those other 9,000 killings each year involve black on black murder.

When you look above at my representation of the ridiculous imbalance of outrage in America, realize that I could only fit 900 skulls on the page, so imagine that for every skull pictured in that graphic, for every one of those skulls, there were actually ten blacks that were killed, and that more than nine out of each ten that were killed were killed at the hands of another black.

The imbalance of outrage is so unfathomable to me that I finally tried engaging in a mental exercise: How would I respond if black was white?

Here’s what I think I would say:

WAKE UP, WHITE PEOPLE! Are you going to listen to these sleaze merchants in the media who would have us focus all our outrage on one tragic case of a white kid killed by a black man? Are you going to let idiots like David Duke and his ilk focus all our outrage on the other races when 94% of our people are being killed at the hands of our own people!

Turn a deaf ear to all those race baiters and hate mongers! If we’re going to scream in outrage, we need to scream in outrage that we are killing our own damn selves! Stop pointing the finger at everyone else, stop playing the victim and take some pride in being white. Don’t worry about the other races, we need to worry about cleaning our own damn house!

Interestingly enough, I can think of a lot of great black men who preached much the same message of accountability and self-reliance to their own communities: Malcolm X and Louis Farrakhan both spring to mind . . . too bad that today, their voices are drowned out by the peddlers of victimhood.

  • Not everyone (black or white) listens to Jesse or Al, they are just among the many hacks on TV, Republican, Democrat, or otherwise. Anyways, to say that race was not a factor is ridiculous. The too biggest factors in the judicial sytsem are race and money. Money to hire an all star defense team is not a luxury that many have. Mr. Zimmerman was lucky to have a great council like he did. I wonder if George had been black and Trayvon white, with George only having a public defender, would the outcome had been the same? With respect to racism, this country has come a long way, but it’s still there and always will be. From the overt racists to the closet racists that just don’t say things out loud because they know it’s not socially acceptable. Feel free to disagree as I’m sure you will. You’re still my buddy! -BB

    • I always appreciate hearing your thoughts, BB.

      To say race was not a factor is ridiculous? Not according to the FBI’s investigation:

      “After interviewing nearly three dozen people in the George Zimmerman murder case, the FBI found no evidence that racial bias was a motivating factor in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, records released Thursday show.”


      Unfortunately, you bought into the media brainwashing.

      Reality: Zimmerman took a black woman to prom, mentored black kids for free and stood up for a black homeless guy who got beaten by the cops.


      All I’m saying is that this case brought out all the racists and race baiters and race hucksters right out of the wood work. Maybe you’ll take a second to read Charles Barkley, I think he made some of the most astute comments I’ve heard regarding how this trial has exposed all those racists:


      • Good job Mike, you are right, Al Sharpton and all the other race hucksters have grabbed hold of this tragic story. I am holding my breath thru this week-end, pray all these “protests” will not get out of hand. IMO, Sharpton and others possibly thought Zimmerman was Jewish and white, hence we now have the name White Hispanic. I think the media knew that they could not get what they were looking for if they just said he was Hispanic, they probably felt that might backfire. I blame Rick Scott and Pam Bondi for not having the guts to handle this correctly in the first place. Bondi picking the woman prosecutor, gave the hucksters what they were looking for.

        • If those scumbags had any concern for the black community, they would scream at the top of their lungs at the horror of 94% of all blacks being killed by black murderers, but they don’t give a damn, they make their livings screaming bloody murder off the tiny fraction of cross-racial violence. I hope they enjoy the spots in hell they earned by trying to incite the hate they devoted their careers to.

    • One more important read, the Martin family attorney says, “To this family race is not a part of this process. And anybody who tries to inject race into it is wrong. let’s be clear about it very clear this family does not want race as a part of this process and does not believe it should be a part of this process.”
