When Will Whites Learn To Play "Victim?"
I detest the "cop wanna-be" Mr. Zimmerman down in Florida who gunned down 17-year old Trayvon Martin. So do most Americans. However, I also have a problem with how quickly the Black community will don the martyr's robes and take to the streets when one of their own is killed by a white man, yet totally ignore the far greater problem of Black violence on America's streets.
Yesterday, Perpetual Whiner, Al Sharpton led a Black protest in New York against the Florida police dragging their feet on arresting Zimmerman. This morning brings news that Blacks will lead a protest down in Zimmerman's own community. That's fine, as far as it goes. But I want to know this:
1) Last weekend, to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, urban black criminals gunned down three people in the streets of Indianapolis. I see no Black march to protest against those black thugs.
2) These past months in Phoenix street warfare between Blacks and Latinos have resulted in numerous innocents being shot as they were caught between the warring gangs. I see no national TV coverage of this, nor have I seen a single Black Marcher parading their indignation at this senseless violence.
3) Last weekend, on Chicago's South Side, Latino and Black gang members shot 23 people on a single weekend. One of those bullets killed 6-year old Aliya Shell as she sat on her front porch as her mother was working to untangle a knot in her lovely curley locks. Al Sharpton and other Blacks have no plans to march down the streets of south side Chicago to protest this senseless killing.
It should be noted that, when one googles "Southside Chicago Shootings" one finds dozens and dozens of local news reports of endless Black and Latino shootings. None ever make the national news.
It should also be noted that Southside Chicago is where a certain "Community Organizer" began his political career by trumpeting the "victimhood" of blacks and ignoring the white victims of that same Black neighborhood.
I'm guessing that, until Whites are willing to march in the streets in protest of the explosive Latino and Black violence, we'll continue to be caught in the crossfire. It seems that "victimhood" gets the news coverage and Blacks will only take to the streets in protest when the perpetrator is white.
Post Script: We have now learned that witnesses saw Trayvon Martin attack Zimmerman. We have now learned that Martin was in the area after a drug suspension from school. We have now learned that in the last three years Martin attacked a school bus driver, was caught with stolen jewelry and break-in tools and was caught defacing public property with graffiti gear. But we didn't hear it from Jessie Jackson or Al Sharpton, or MSNBC, did we? A black martyr? I think not.
BTW, We are not seeing the Lamestream media covering this one: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/rnr/2935822230.html
We also have seen no mainstream news reports after two blacks killed a white student at the Univ. of Mississippi, or the handicap girl in Kansas beaten by black youths in retaliation for the Martin incident, nor have i seen a single national story about the black gang who set another white youth on fire in retaliation for the Martin incident.
Sad, Damned Sad.
