THE TRAYON – ZIMMERMAN AFFAIR

Al Sharpton rose to power on a lie.  When the Tawana Brawley case was revealed to be a trumped up incident that never happened, the career of a good prosecutor was already destroyed.  Sharpton has never acknowledged the falsehoods were the basis of that case.  He’s a phony and everyone with any sense of objectivity knows it.

Jessie Jackson is past his prime.  He is living comfortably on the proceeds of racial based corporate intimidation, surfacing occasionally to keep racism alive in support of the industry which has served him so well financially.

Barack Obama is the third well known black man to make a run for President on the Democratic ticket.  Obama is cut of different cloth.  He is for real and he is not out to profit financially from the racism industry.  But he encourages it by what he doesn’t say and occasionally by what he does say.  Sharpton and Jackson speak for Sharpton and Jackson, fair enough.  They are free to take sides but the President is not.

When a black man forced his way into a home in Boston, Obama sided with the black man immediately before he knew the facts.  If you remember that incident cost him a beer and an apology to the cop.  When the case against Black Panther intimidation at the polls was technically already won by default, Obama’s administration dropped the charges.  Obama has never exactly said he supports reparations, but he has never said he opposed them and has argued that some form of acknowledgement of crimes against blacks and American Indians should include deeds and not just words.  And we should not overlook Obama’s own words that he had found his life’s work as he lingered in the pew after listening to a sermon on the subject – It’s the white man’s need that runs a world in need.

When a Muslim who said non-believers should be beheaded and have boiling oil poured down their throats, later shot and killed thirteen people at Fort Hood, Obama rightly called for patience to learn the facts before making any judgment.  When an unarmed black boy is shot and killed by a Hispanic the need for patience to find the facts is no longer important.  The New Black Panthers put a bounty on a Hispanic man’s head as their leader shouts for a lynching with “If the government won’t do their job, we will!” and Obama signals acquiescence by his silence.

The Great Divider keeps his rage under control but time and again his bias comes to light. These are strong words but it’s time they be said.

THE CALL FOR VIGILANTE JUSTICE IN FLORIDA

In the aftermath of the World Trade Center attack that was carried out by 19 Muslims, President George W. Bush took quick pre-emptive steps to prevent backlash from arising against Muslims in America.  In the aftermath of the killing of an unarmed Black youth, President Barack H. Obama has done little, some would say nothing to quell the backlash that is rising in the Black community against non-blacks in America.  What if the shooter had been plain vanilla white instead of someone from a Hispanic/Black family?

The New Black Panther Society has issued a $10,000 “reward for the capture” of George Zimmerman, the shooter.  Zimmerman is not on the loose and hiding.  So in this case capture means kidnap: every Panther member knows that.  When Panther leader Mikhail Muhammad announced the reward he called for 5,000 Black men to mobilize and bring Zimmerman in.  “An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,” Muhammad said, “If the government won’t do the job, we’ll do it,” followed by chants of “freedom or death” and “justice for Trayvon.”

It’s vigilante justice calling for a trial-less lynching.  In times like these a black President should take every possible measure to show he is race neutral.  When racism rears its ugly head, no one is in a better position to quell it than a black President who is willing, able and anxious to restore harmony.  Unfortunately, we don’t have one.
