Booker T. Washington, one of the most accomplished black leaders of the late 19th and early 20th century noticed this trend more than a hundred years ago:
"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. WashingtonFirst, so-called civil rights leaders like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton demanded Zimmerman's arrest. Then they demanded Zimmerman's prosecution. And when they didn't get the trial verdict they wanted they now demand a further Department of Justice investigation with possible prosecution of Zimmerman for hate crimes.
It doesn't matter to them one bit that the FBI interviewed three dozen people more than a year ago about Zimmerman's racial attitudes and concluded he was not a racist. There is too much money to be made by accusing Zimmerman of being a racist and by extension the entire justice system even though President and Obama and Attorney General Holder who are in charge of the justice system are black.
|A hate message from a Chicago church? |
Sure, anything to make a buck! Notice the "kkk"?
Then there's the mantra that somehow it's open season for whites to kill black people. That sentiment was expressed in the sign at First Baptist Church in Chicago. No pastoral message of peace and love there. Just a not so subtle reference to the Ku Klux Klan.
Also in Chicago, Obama's pal, Father Pfleger, a Roman Catholic priest dressed in his priestly finery gave away the game when he screamed: “I refuse to ignore the race in this issue… we are not in a post-racial area… in fact, racism has a second breath in America today, and last night it got new oxygen.” It's the evident racism of people like Pfleger that is on display.
Isn't it odd that the racists of Chicago would be so up in arms about the death of one black teenager in Florida since 3 teens and a five year old were killed in the Windy City during the Zimmerman trial? Newsflash: they weren't gunned down by whites. Black on black gun violence is out of control in Chicago despite some of the nation's toughest gun laws. But that sad reality, hundreds killed every year, doesn't seem to get much attention from the race profiteers.
Bill O'Reilly's July 16th commentary nailed it:
It's sad that so many on the left buy into and readily propagate the big lie on race. But then, I guess they are used to being manipulated by an elite motivated by greed. How else do you explain their readiness to buy into the global warming fraud? And as long as we have a corrupt media that plays along I expect these and other left wing lies to continue. After all, there's big money at stake when you can get away with scaring people to death!
O'Reilly: There is no question that the American media is not reporting the black-white crime situation accurately. According to the FBI 91% of homicides on black Americans were committed by other blacks. Also, 14% of homicides on whites were committed by blacks - twice as many as the other way around. So the truth is that black men are not being "hunted" down by whites as some hysterical commentators charged after the Zimmerman acquittal.
