George Zimmerman’s shooting of Trayvon Martin — which was proven in a court of law to be justifiable self-defense — was distorted beyond all recognition and hyped to the skies by the liberal ideologues who control the federal government, the schools, and the national media. They must have their reasons.
Here is an example of how schools have exploited it:
In the wake of the verdict in the Trayvon Martin shooting, several teachers said they would invoke mob justice, vigilantism and the idea that Florida law allows people to hunt and kill black kids when discussing the case with their students.
The Obama Regime and the left-wing establishment media that put and keep it in power have been comparably mendacious and inflammatory. The results were so predictable, they could only have been intended.
A 20-year-old City of Poughkeepsie man charged late Friday night with murder and burglary in the death of a 99-year-old city woman is being held at Dutchess County Jail today without bail, authorities said.
Police charged Javon Tyrek Rogers, 20, of the City of Poughkeepsie, with first-degree murder and first-degree burglary around 11 p.m. in connection with the homicide of Fannie Gumbinger, 99, city police Detective Lt. Edward Freer said in a written release late Friday night.
Fannie Gumbinger died of “multiple injuries” — presumably she was beaten to death.
Readers can guess the respective races. If they were reversed, this would be the biggest news story since 9/11/01.
In Syracuse, a presumably black teen gets a gentle wrist slap for killing a man during a round of the “Knockout Game,” which involves attacking random whites and knocking them unconscious:
Onondaga County Family Court Judge Michael Hanuszczak today sentenced a 16-year-old to 18 months of confinement for the killing of a 51-year-old man.
The sentence was the maximum the judge could have handed down to the teen, who was recently found guilty of second-degree manslaughter in the beating death of Michael Daniels. …
Daniels was standing alone on the corner of West Brighton Avenue and Cannon Street when he was approached by at least two teenagers and beaten to death. Several witnesses testified that around seven or eight teenagers were present during the incident, and that the beating happened after someone suggested the group play a street game called “knockout.”
Apparently 18 months for murder is too harsh:
The boy’s defense attorney, Jimmy Meggesto, said after court that he plans to file an appeal.
Police in New York City are trying to find a black man wearing a hoodie who is responsible for a horrific attack on a teenage white girl who was stabbed 11 times just steps from her front door.
The knife-wielding maniac ambushed Natasha Martinez, 17, as she returned home from working her shift at a local McDonald’s restaurant.
Here a young white man is brutally murdered for kicks by Detroit “youths” he considered his friends:
A young white guy is murdered in Memphis, allegedly by these folks, evidently as “justice for Trayvon”:
Often the media deliberately hides the race of criminals even in local news. Journalism is the wrong profession for anyone who thinks informing the public is as important as advancing liberal ideology. But lately there have been some exceptions to the blackout. This admission is from liberal Time:
The numbers don’t lie: young black men do commit about 50% of the murders in the U.S. We don’t yet know whether the attack on Lane was racially motivated, nor can we know whether the three black boys who attacked a white boy on a Florida school bus recently would not have done the same to a black kid. (Critics took Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to task for not condemning the violence.) But hardly uncommon are cases such as the two black guys who doused a white 13-year-old with gasoline and lit him on fire, saying “You get what you deserve, white boy” (Kansas City, Mo.) or 20 black kids who beat up white Matthew Owens on his porch “for Trayvon” (Mobile, Ala.).
So, it’s just fake to pretend that the association of young black men with violence comes out of thin air. Young black men murder 14 times more than young white men.
As Pat Buchanan notes,
In the real America, interracial violence is overwhelmingly black-on-white. Even if the media will not report it, everybody knows it.
It is impossible to know how many of these incidents are explicitly racially motivated, and how many are simply symptoms of a segment of society that is never held responsible for its behavior spinning out of control. In either case, the streets and even our own homes have become extremely dangerous. No law-abiding adult should be without a firearm.
Already it is becoming infeasible to pretend the epidemic of black on white violence hasn’t become an urgent crisis. The media that did so much to cause it with its politically correct racial grievance narrative has its work cut out for it. Spinning this as the fault of the victims isn’t going to be easy.
But then, this must fit into an overall strategy, or why would they have sacrificed what’s left of their credibility to whip up violence with the Passion of Saint Skittles?
