Conversation about Race: Do all Blacks and Latina' support the demonisation of Zimmerman?
"George Zimmerman should have taken his ass whooping like a man" - Merritt Whitelow
Irony Coefficient: Are Uncle Toms and white Conservatives the only defenders of rule of law due process for anti-racist Pro-Black rights Democrat George Zimmerman?
Soon after the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman tragedy exploded on the National Stage, conservatives wondered why the Trayvon Martin Coalition insisted on describing George Zimmerman as 'white', when he was multi-racial (German-Peruvian), and personally identified himself as Hispanic, as detailed in a letter from George Zimmerman's father to the Orlando Sentinel; and no Hispanics came to his defence.
National Council of La Raza statement:
"We really regret people trying to use this to divide blacks and Latinos," said Lisa Navarrette, a spokeswoman for La Raza. "It's disturbing to us that Rush Limbaugh has this theory. The only time he apparently cares about what happens to a Latino is when they may have happened to kill a young African-American man. The fact that George Zimmerman is Latino is irrelevant to his actions.
Personally that's the media's fault. Everything has to fit into a narrative and a paradigm. Initially it was a white guy who shot a black kid. Now they've split the difference."
"Unfortunately, being Hispanic does not mean that you aren't capable of bigotry or discrimination. It does not condone or preclude him (Zimmerman) from having acted in a discriminatory manner."
Zimmerman's Anti-Racist Work on behalf of Among Others Sherman Ware:
As new information surfaces about George Zimmerman's activism on behalf of black people, from his family's mentoring of black children on weekends, to his public advocacy on behalf of the rights of blacks who have been mistreated; it is becoming impossible for any impartial minded individual with a philosophical definition of 'racism' to accuse George's actions towards Trayvon Martin as being motivated by racism.
Hispana Views Confronts National Council of La Raza
"You are against Jan Brewer and Joe Apario. You support the push for illegal immigration. That's okay, we believe in the same fight. What we do not agree with is the judgement of George Zimmerman and his treatment from the media. Why can't we support a citizen too? We should be ashamed that we are not offering George Zimmerman support and just wish for a fair trial. Why hasn't that happened. Why hasn't been publicly known that we are against unfair media tactics made on George's behalf. Don't we believe in innocent until proven guilty? This is not behavior we should be proud of. Do we just select the hispanics we want on prejudging. Isn't George Zimmerman allowed his civil rights and due process?
So far we are ashamed of our so called civil right leaders!!!"
Do Blacks and Hispanics Get Along?: Yes, but Not Always, and Not about Everything
According to a 2008 survey of racial and ethnic attitudes by the Pew Research Center: "While blacks and Hispanics hold broadly favorable views of each other, Hispanics are less likely to say the two groups get along well. At the same time, African Americans are far more likely than Latinos to say blacks are frequently the victims of racial discrimination."
The media have been silent about the level of black and latino support for the wisdom espoused in Problem Solving Black Leaders Trayvon Martin Wisdom.
Similarly the media have been silent about the level of public black and latino support for the views of Hal Ulrig, who stated to Piers Morgan on CNN (Youtube), that race and racial profiling had nothing to do with the tragedy, if Trayvon had not made the "terrible decision" and "bad judgment" to smack and attack Zimmerman, he would never have been shot by Zimmerman in self defence.
If the media did in fact enquire into Black and Latino public support for whether Martin's tragic decision making may have played a role in the events; would it find black and latino opinions similar to those espoused in the Pew study, which found that "when asked if discrimination or personal shortcomings are the main reason why some blacks don't succeed, roughly similar majorities of blacks (53%) and Hispanics (59%) say blacks themselves are responsible, a view shared by 71% of all whites."?
If so.. why are the media censoring the views of blacks and latina's who do not support the Trayvon Martin Coalition Victimhood Pity Party Race War Narrative?
A Conversation About Race:
An excellent introduction to an honest sincere conversation about Race, focussed on personal responsibility and problem solving, not Political Correct Racial Emotional Hysterics; is Craig Bodekers' documentary; A Conversation About Race. Craig interviews a diverse group of Colorado residents for their opinions on various questions related to race and racism:
Why do white students score better than black students on standardized tests?
Why is the NBA nearly 90% black?
Have you ever been “racist?
Are whites better at anything than blacks?
Do blacks commit more crimes than whites?
Can you name a public figure who is “racist”?
How do you feel about immigration from Mexico?
Their answers - like Hispana's challenge to National Council of La Raza -- may surprise you.
