What if Trayvon Martin was white? That is a question often posed by Trayvon Martin supporters. But its not a question perse, because they believe they already know the answer. By asking this question, the askee is supposed to fall back and admit he was wrong. But I have an answer to what would have happened differently if Trayvon Martin was white. Itís a simple answer, not based on emotion, not based on pre-conceived notions, but based on previous cases. If Trayvon Martin were white, and if George Zimmerman were black, nothing would have changed. The black Zimmerman would have gone home that night, he would not have been charged and immediately placed under a prison like some speculate. And if the evidence was such that the police felt they needed to arrest him, then the trial process would have been fair with an unbiased jury.

Here are two stories, both similar to the Trayvon Martin case but with races being reversed. The victims were white. The killers were black males who claimed self-defense.

In the above story, a black male shot a white man at a taco bell drive-through after the white male allegedly swung a bat at him. No bat was found at the scene. The only thing in the white manís hand was a dog leash. The black male claimed self-defense and was not arrested until 3 months later, even though the police knew about him. They knew he had killed this man. Where were Benjamin Crump and Al Sharpton then? The funny thing about this one is that there actually was more reason to arrest the shooter here than there was reason to arrest George Zimmerman.

In New York, Roderick Scott, a black male who shot and killed a white teen, also 17, in what he claimed was self-defense was acquitted by a jury of his peers. Why was he acquitted? Because the evidence was in his favor, similarly to how the evidence is in George Zimmermanís favor.

Here is another popular hypothetical thrown about by Trayvon supporters as if its supposed to be some end-all be all argument. It too has a simple answer.

Would George Zimmerman have thought Trayvon Martin was suspicious if he was white?

Hereís a 2 part answer:

1.) Probably. We know he called in white people who he felt were suspicious.

2.) What sense would it make to be suspicious of group A when it is known that group B are the ones terrorizing the community? Of course you would be more cautious around people who fit group Bís profile. Its not racism, its fucking common sense.

He'd have soft hair, speak English, have intelligence, and wouldn't have been making drug cocktails out of skittles.

The number one way you could tell, he would only be dating women under the 400LB mark with only one chin and not 7.

Jackson may have uttered those words, but it goes deeper than that. Both black and white people appreciate strong, dominant black men when they are sports stars or when they belt out vulgar and oppressive rap lyrics. We all love to see muscle bound Labron James as he dunks in the face of another NBA player. Bulging and sweating muscles and dominant aggression are valued. The recent outburst of the professional football player with snarling face and streaming hair was valued by much of the pro football world. But what if we meet such a man on a dark street? Jessie's robbery or even worse crosses the mind and we avoid such a man. Whose fault is this? It is the fault of every one. Many blacks see these aggressive rap and sports stars as icons. Whites love them, but sing a different tune when approached by a similar man on the street. There is an even more negative result. Young blacks see these aggressive men as their role models. They listen to the language and watch the aggression. They come away with a distaste of education, seeing it a white thing, and loud, physical aggression as the way to go. It takes them to ignorance, crime and jail or death. Trayvon Martin was an example.
