The Zimmerman Trial and Black Skin Privilege

The trial of George Zimmerman is winding down with a meltdown of the prosecution’s case and lurid predictions of riots if a “politically correct” decision is not reached. Why is it in America today that racial issues like this one so resemble the Wonderland world where, as the Red Queen famously says,“first the sentence, then the evidence”? Why is it that Americans consider blacks to be much more racist on the whole than whites, yet the latter is exclusively singled out for scorn? David Horowitz and John Perazzo provide answers in their pamphlet Black Skin Privilege, written not long after Zimmerman was arrested in connection with the Trayvon Martin death. Here’s what Horowitz and Perazzo say:

In America today, blacks generally can conduct racist assaults on whites and count on “civil rights” activists and the media not to notice. In the two months following Trayvon Martin’s death, black assailants carried out at least 14 fourteen known attacks against white victims with the idea of “avenging” the fallen youth. In East Toledo, six juveniles beat a 78-year-old white man, shouting:“This is for Trayvon … Trayvon lives, white [man]. Kill that white [man]!” In Gainesville, five blacks shouting “Trayvon!” beat a 27-year-old white man, leaving his face permanently disfigured. In another Gainesville incident, a black crowd shouting “Trayvon!” assaulted and stomped on a white man who was trying to recover his female companion’s purse from the hands of a black thief. In Chicago, two black teenagers beat and robbed a 19-year-old white man because, as one of the attackers explained, they were angry about Trayvon Martin. In Baltimore, a group of blacks beat and robbed a white man, stripping him naked, then posted a video of the assault online with the caption:“me an my boys helped get justice fore trayvon.” In Mobile, a white man named Matthew Owens was brutalized by twenty African Americans armed with brass knuckles, bricks, chairs, bats and steel pipes after he asked them to stop playing basketball in the street directly in front of his home. As the assailants left the scene, one of them looked back at the victim, who was bleeding profusely, and shouted,:“Now that’s justice for Trayvon!” It is unlikely that many Americans have heard of these racial attacks, because the perpetrators are protected by a media that does not want to notice that the racists are black, and their victims are white.

Within weeks of the Trayvon Martin shooting, a parallel killing occurred with the skin colors reversed at a Taco Bell restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona. A 22-year-old black motorist got into an altercation with Daniel Adkins, a 29-year-old, mentally disabled “white Hispanic” who was walking by. When the argument grew heated, the motorist drew a gun and killed Adkins. When police arrived at the scene, the black shooter claimed that Adkins had swung a bat or metal pipe at him, although no such items were found at the scene. Arizona, like Florida, has a “Stand Your Ground” law that allows a person to use deadly force to protect himself when faced with a life-or-death confrontation. A protective media withheld the shooter’s name, and there was no racial mob calling for his head. Unlike George Zimmerman, the gunman was not arrested nor charged with a crime. Call that black skin privilege.

If you’re black and possibly guilty but a white person is involved, the media will actively volunteer to be your advocate…. In the Trayvon Martin case, the media withheld details of the crime that were damaging to Trayvon in order to protect him and indict Zimmerman — that the mainly white community he had entered at night had been the target of a rash of recent break-ins and burglaries by young African -American men; that the hoodie Trayvon was wore was a uniform for burglars; and that Trayvon had been suspended from school after burglary tools were discovered on his person along with unaccounted-for jewelry. At the same time, the press flooded the airwaves and front pages with sentimental photos of Trayvon as an innocent adolescent, while withholding others of the six-foot-two, 17-year-old who beat the smaller Zimmerman to the ground, smashing his head on the concrete and causing him to scream repeatedly for his life before he fired his gun in self-defense.

Looking at the Martin case, black skin privilege means you can form a lynch mob if the target is a “white” man and the press will overlook it; you can demand a judgment in advance of the facts, and can conclude his guilt in advance of a trial. You can even take “justice” into your own hands by threatening his life as the Black Panthers did to George Zimmerman or twittering his home address like vigilante filmmaker Spike Lee and comedienne Roseanne Barr did in the hope that someone might go after him. If this isn’t a rebirth of the cracker mentality of the segregated South, it is hard to know what would be…

This land will burn.

The media, the Occupier, and the hustlers must pay after the riots are put down.

I only hope that Blacks do not riot on a national scale if the Zimmerman outcome is not Black. This is America, not Africa.

What is contemptuous is your willingness to reach conclusions absent factual support.

That really isn't the relevant question TippyHead.

The relevant question is whether or not the assaults cited in the writer's fecal distribution posted at the top of this thread were actually crimes motivated by racist animus, or were they instead simple assaults? Were some indeed driven by racist animus and mob mentality, and some not?

The relevant questions are whether people like you are capable of delving into issues sufficiently enough to arrive at conclusions that are based on facts, or instead, are you so driven by your own desire to promote racial hatred that you're chomping at the bit to devour poorly written opinion pieces that omit facts, so long as the conclusions of the writer fit your agenda?

When any crime is committed, the facts surrounding it aren't necessarily reported in the next day's news.

Keep pretending to be a God fearing and devout Christian living by His example.

Enjoy your Sunday, Bigot. Pray for the race riots. You know that's what you're hoping to see.

Won't waste my time reading your entire reply.
You posted a link to the Toledo Blade, accusing others of ignorance of the facts.
Your own link proved otherwise.

Now, run along and come back as RU_Kiddingme, armed with baseless insults.

I provided two sources documenting facts completely omitted from the writer's version of two of the incidents cited in the piece.

Two of those incidents were not motivated by race.

The piece is garbage, yet you believe it.

George should end his unhappy miserable white life and take a chance that he will be reincarnated as a black person. Then his life would be hunky-dory!

Incorrect.

You cited the Toledo Blade, obviously without reading the article in its entirety.

Upon realizing your mistake, and refusing to return the obvious answer to the question, "Who initiated the assault?"...you then changed course and brought up a second incident, without ever resolving your mistake pertaining to the first.

You really are simple, aren't you?

There were assaults, yes.

The question isn't "who initiated them"?

The question is "were the assaults motivated by racial/racist animus?"

Why don't you try to end it for me, wee man? I dare you.

And it appears you still have not read your own Toledo Blade article.

Just...run along.
