Hear No Racism, Speak No Racism

The unfortunate shooting death of seventeen year old Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman, who is claiming self-defense, was likely to marred by political exploitation and racial division. When President Obama claimed that, “If I  had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” the dye had effectively been cast, as Obama made a cynical, calculated gamble to exploit the youngster’s death for political gain.  Some believe Obama’s move could quite possibly be a precursor for an Executive Order or legislation that could curtail our Second Amendment liberties.

DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has demanded the repeal of Florida’s 2005 “Stand your ground” law, and the race-mongering Reverend Al Sharpton has played his ‘race card’ and is planning “a wave of civil disobedience.”

Along with Wasserman Schultz, other Democrat members of Congress suchas Frederica Wilson are also racially exploiting Martin’s death to call attention to themselves as well as cover for their lack of accomplishment in Congress.  Wilson has stated that Zimmerman “hunted” down Martin because he was black and also said that, “I am tired of burying black boys.

When do you ever hear any non-black politician state that they are tired of burying Hispanic, Asian, or Caucasian boys?  A not-so little secret that Wilson and others continue to ignore are the statistically higher black-on-black and black-on-white crimes including aggravated assault and murder than there is against blacks by any other ethnicity.  Where is their outrage with this sobering fact?

While Sharpton’s skewed thinking that this so called “civil disobedience” he’s planning will bring “awareness” and perhaps affect the police’s investigation into the shooting, it’s more likely that Sharpton will incite more violence and arrests that further fuel his racist agenda.  But while Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and other so called ‘Black Leaders” invoke racial equality for all and cast blame on the ‘White’ race for the black races’ ‘oppression,’ they refuse to look in the mirror and seriously confront the real issues that afflict black community.   While it’s no secret that real racism exists throughout every demographic, arguably the least discussed type of racism is that which comes from blacks themselves, as the media rarely ever gives the issue the coverage it deserves.

Race-baiting black leaders and many pop icons for years have led many blacks to believe that they are still an oppressed minority that will always live under the thumb of the ‘whites.’  This racial propaganda is a key component of Democrat grievance politics and it tells blacks that they will never truly be able to overcome the systemic racism that permanently embedded in American society.  One inexplicable cultural connection among some of these blacks is the way they refer to themselves using derogatory terms such as ‘Niggas’ and other racially charged epithets that they conveniently condemn non-blacks for using the moment they are uttered.

Taking notes and following suit from Sharpton and Jackson are their compatriots in this ongoing racial divide- the new crop of pro-amnesty illegal aliens activists who understand the effectiveness of using racial threats to intimidate politicians into listening and in some cases advocating for their cause.  Meanwhile, the two leading causes of the woes that plague the black community- the alarming single-parent home epidemic and lack of education that results are largely ignored by race mongers like Sharpton & Jackson.

Instead of focusing on these problems, Sharpton focuses on the grief and rage that are the byproducts of these underlying problems and then profits off the pain of others- make no mistake, this is a business for Sharpton.  Without a racial divide to play off, Sharpton would be out of business and would wither away into obscurity.  It’s a sad commentary to see a man such as Sharpton free to roam the American landscape to further exacerbate the racial divide when he should actually be in prison for a long litany of criminal activity which his adversaries have been too reluctant to prosecute.
