The George Zimmerman trial is the latest example showcasing the thinking process, or lack thereof, of the liberal left in the U.S. Trayvon Martin’s death is a tragedy, but race was not a factor the night George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin. The left refuses to believe this even though the facts overwhelmingly support it. The FBI, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the most accomplished and most respected investigative agency in the world, investigated George Zimmerman to see if there was any history of racism in his past. They found absolutely nothing. To any fair-minded person looking at this case objectively, that says a lot. The left however, in typical fashion, are only interested in the facts and statistics that support their argument and their cause. And in the George Zimmerman trial, they don’t have a lot to choose from. Bringing up inconvenient truths, fully supported by facts and statistics, that the vast majority of black murders in the U.S. are committed by other blacks will be rationalized away by the left. While the shooting of Trayvon Martin will be used as a racial platform by them that white America hates black people.
I’m constantly amazed by the hypocrisy of the African-American community consistently turning a blind eye to the astronomical black-on-black murder rate in the major urban centers in the U.S. (especially Chicago), not to mention the murder rate of blacks on non-blacks, which is the highest among any ethnic group. But then to scream ‘RACISM!’ when a non-black shoots a black in self-defense. It makes no logical sense. So, you have to abandon the premise that these people are operating or reasoning logically. All indicators are that they’re not and are not interested in trying.
I possibly might feel more sympathy for African-Americans over the verdict of the Zimmerman trial if their moral outrage over the death of blacks in the U.S. wasn’t so selective. Given their outrage over the death of Trayvon Martin, we should be hearing daily reports of blacks protesting and marching over black men being mowed down almost daily in the city of Chicago, which is now the murder capital of the country. But we don’t, and we won’t, because those black men are overwhelmingly murdered by other black men, not Hispanic or white men. Martin’s death is tragic and should be mourned appropriately, but black America’s attempt to show that they care about the lives of young, black men is laughable in light of the facts.
My message to black America: I’ll start taking your claims of Racist White America seriously when you stop killing each other like you’re the 2nd coming of the KKK.
Until then, God Bless The United States Of America.
