The Zimmerman Verdict and Reaction: Two Excellent Blog Posts

From two excellent blogs. The Gay Patriot and Wake Up America.

First,- from the Gay Patriot:

Gay Left Groups Ask for "Justice for Trayvon Martin

 

["Since the left has made this case their cause célèbre, is it any wonder that “35 LGBT rights organizations” have signed an “open letter asking for justice for Trayvon Martin”?  Like the national media, these groups have turned a local issue into a national one, showing once again that these outfits seem ever eager to join with the “social justice” movements of the left.

(I wonder how many of these groups praised then-Vice President Cheney when he distinguished himself from then-President Bush and opposed an amendment to the constitution defining marriage.)

The groups signing the letter include GLAAD, HRC, the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and PFLAG National.

This is not a national issue nor is it one that should be of concern to gay organizations. There is no evidence that George Zimmerman profiled Martin because of the youth’s sexual orientation or his race. Nor is there any evidence that Zimmerman harbored any bigotry against gay people or African-Americans.  Indeed, he “has dated black womentutored black children, once stood up for a black homeless man against the police . . . , has black relatives, and voted for the first black president.”

Do wonder if these groups are aware that when Zimmerman’s brother Robert came out to him, the man recently acquitted of murder and manslaughter was most supportive. As Robert told Joseph Cotto of the Washington Times: 

George was the first person who reached out. He came to my house, he reached out to my partner at the time, who I was actually with for eleven years, and tried to make me and him feel very comfortable and was very supportive because I had been true to myself and, even though it might be a little bit inconvenient or misunderstood … honesty was the best policy, and that if I was being true to who I was … that’s all that mattered and everything would work out fine.

Do wonder at these groups’ disinterest in this fact about a man whom media hype has forced into the public eye."]

Reverend Blasts Sharpton, Jackson as 'Race Hustlers and Poverty Pimps', Calls Trayvon a 'Thug' [includes video]

["Reverend Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, president of the Brotherhood Organization of A New Destiny (BOND), went on the "Piers Morgan Tonight"show and proceeded to call out both Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for race baiting, calling them "race hustlers and poverty pimps" for inciting racial tensions by inserting race into the death of Trayvon Martin and the George Zimmerman trial for that death, where Zimmerman was found not guilty of second degree murder and manslaughter.


Peterson stated that Sharpton and Jackson inserted race "in order to gain power and wealth."

Other controversial comments by Peterson included call Barack Obama's comments "You know, if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon," insane and called Trayvon Martin a "thug."]

This Rev. Peterson may have a valid point about Sharpton and Jackson inserting race for their own gain, [ problem profiteers], but unless Peterson had personal knowledge of the young man Martin, he should not have referred to him as a 'thug'.

If he didn't personally know either Martin or Zimmerman, and was not physically there to see with his own eyes what happened, then the only real honest assessment Peterson can have of  the incident is--

"Wasn't there, didn't see what happened, so don't know what happened."

Anything beyond that is forming an opinion based on speculation and what was heard spouted off in the media. Which sometimes isn't very reliable.

This will be this blogs only post on the matter.

Problem Profiteers by Walter Williams Williams2


Key excerpt:

["At the turn of the century, Booker T. Washington warned against the agenda of "problem profiteers," proclaiming: "There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public.

Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs." Booker T. Washington's warnings apply aptly to people like Jesse Jackson and Mfume...."]

Black racists are coming out of the woodwork. It’s hard to imagine how vile and bigoted they are in their attacks on Herman Cain. Such treatment has a long history. Today, it’s an industry.

A number of black “leaders” (e.g., Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton) have made their living by promoting black victimhood and white guilt. Jesse Jackson has been shaking down corporations with the scam for decades.  Booker T. Washington (1865–1915) warned of such people within the black community in his 1911 book My Larger Education. He described them as “problem profiteers”:

“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs – partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” (p. 118)
