Racism vs Race-Baiting

The killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman is tragic indeed, but so are the countless other killings that happen everyday in our country.  There are people in our society that will seize upon this tragedy to advance their own cause and make the situation far worse than it needs to be.  The people I speak of are the same race-baiting whores we see time after time when something like this occurs.  Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and crazy Louis Farrakhan make a living on racism, whether that racism is real or imagined. 

The mainstream media and the other race-whores are calling the killing of Mr. Martin an act of overt racism.  The problem with this accusation is George Zimmerman is a Hispanic that grew up in a multiracial family.  Zimmerman has black American neighbors defending him telling the media that everything being reported was untrue and that she would trust George with her life.  Another black neighbor said that George was the only one, black or white, who came and welcomed her to the community, offering any assistance he could provide.  Of course those in the media don’t let the facts get in the way of a good story.  Reuters published a story today in which they called Zimmerman a “white” Hispanic.  Why do you think Reuters would go to the effort to label Zimmerman as a white Hispanic?  You and I both know the answer to this question and it’s a disgusting effort by ‘journalists’ to inflame the situation.  The media must create their own facts so it will fit their (white on black racism) narrative. 

Not to be outdone by the self proclaimed black leaders (Jackson, Sharpton, Farrakhan), the racist New Black Panther Party are doing all they can to foment fear and violence in Florida by offering a $10,000 bounty on the head of George Zimmerman.  The Black Panther leader, Mikhail Muhammad, has called for 10,000 black men willing to form a militia to find Mr. Zimmerman and administer what they regard as justice.  Asked if he was inciting violence, Mr. Muhammad stated, "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth." To the sound of cheers from followers, who wore black uniforms, he promised: "If the government won't do the job, we'll do it."  President Obama has interjected himself into the controversy by saying, "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon” and that the nation needed to do some "soul searching" over the shooting death of an unarmed African-American teenager.  That’s all well and good, but I expect the President to try and calm the situation and he hasn’t done that as of yet.       

The point of my article is not to deny that racism exists or disavow that Black Americans are killed solely because of their race.  Black Americans are in fact killed because of their race, however, just not as much as the media and the race-whores would have you believe.  White Americans are killed by black people simply because they’re white, but of course it’s not reported as being overt racism perpetrated by Black Americans.  What I’m attempting to point out is the hypocrisy of those on the left who are trying to manufacture racism…facts be damned. 

I challenge these so called ‘civil rights’ leaders and groups to do something really brave.  Why don’t these people address the real crimes that are being committed against black youths every minute of every day?  What is that crime?  Black on black crime kills more black youths than all the racial based crimes combined in the history of our country.  The disturbing truth that continues to be swept under the rug is that Black American youths are killing themselves at highly disproportionate rates.  Homicide is the number one cause of death for Black American youth and young adults ages 10 to 24 and it’s not being committed by racist whites or racist white Hispanics.

I realize racism is a cottage industry for those in the civil rights movement, but if they really wanted to help their community they would address the real killers of their youth.  Black on black crime is not the only big killer of Black Americans.  While blacks make up only 13.6% of the U.S. population, they account for 50.3% of all diagnosed cases of HIV.  The rate of HIV diagnosis among black men is eight times that of whites and two times that of Hispanics, and the rate for black women is 19 times that of whites and four times that of Hispanics.  The black community is in dire need for real leadership, but unfortunately I don't see anyone stepping up to the plate.  All I see is self serving race-baiting whores and an accommodating media trying foment violence.
