On my way home this afternoon I was listening to Sean Hannity. He played some clips from various news organizations, all being critical of the “stand your ground” law. And then he played a clip from some clown from the black panthers. While the first two clips pissed me off, the last one was just over the top idiocy. It seems the black panthers are trying to put together a $1 Millon dollar reward for the capture of Zimmerman. The black panther clown went on to rail against white people and how the white man has it in for black people and on and on about the violence.
Ok, wait a minute. Let’s just think about this for a half a second. In 2005, there were more than 645,000 victims of cross-racial violent crimes between blacks and whites in the U.S. In 90% of those crimes, black offenders attacked white victims. You can bet that of the 10% that were committed by white people, many were at least considered to be tried as a “hate crime”. How many of the black on white crimes were prosecuted as a “hate crime”? Very few if any.
So it would seem that the outlandish claims and statements by the black panthers spokesperson is a little out of whack. When black on white violent crime happens at a rate of 79 to 1, there may be some exaggeration going on. And if you care to know what I think, obama has done more to damage race relations in this Country than any single person or event since the late 1950′s. It’s one thing when you are dealing with the likes of jesse jackson, who by his own actions has rendered himself obsolete, or al sharpton, who is just a race baiting windbag living to get on the news. But obama is “the president”. One would think he would have learned his lesson the last time he inserted his nose in business it didn’t belong. You remember, when he said the police acted stupidly for stopping what they considered to be suspicious behaviour. As it turns out the person was actually the homeowner. How were the police supposed to know the difference, especially when the suspect refuses to show id and acts in a belligerent manner?
If jesse jackson and al sharpton want to raise hell about something, why don’t they attack the black community for it’s own violence. Over the St. Patrick’s day weekend, black on black violence, in Chicago alone, killed or injured 50 people.

The alarming statistics about violence among African-American boys and men is so oft-cited that they have become clichés: for example, “black men are the leading cause of death among young blacks [male and female]”; “1 in 146 black males are at risk of violent death”; and though comprising only 13 percent of the U.S. population, 43 percent of all murder victims are black, compounded by the fact that 93 percent of them are killed by other blacks.
Did you read that? 93% of murdered blacks are killed by other blacks. 93%. For the black panthers to claim that there is some kind of war against black men going on in this Country, they may have a point. But it isn’t at the hands of white men, or as in the Martin/Zimmerman case, hispanic men.
Maybe if jackson and sharpton and the black panthers and obama and all the race baiting fools in this Country focused their attention and anger on addressing the real problems facing black people instead of the white boogie man, something would get done.
Do you know that recently in Kansas City, two young black boys set a young white boy on fire? All the while taunting him with race related remarks? Do you think that will make it to court as a hate crime? The white boy was lucky to have come away with severe burns but alive.
It would be easy if this entire Martin/Zimmerman thing could come down to race. Then there would be no doubt about where the blame lies. It isn’t that easy. Like most other things in life it is complicated. And it is becoming more complicated as the history is rewritten right before our eyes. Martin was no angel. He was kicked out of school for drugs. He may have had some type of gang affiliation. This isn’t the sweet young kid we were all shown a picture of. A picture that was at least 5 years old. Does any of that information have a bearing on the shooting? Maybe. Is it fair to hide those details from the public as people are calling for Zimmerman to be lynched? No. Should Martin’s image be sanitized and Zimmerman’s dragged through the mud to make this all fit into some neat little agenda? No.
I lay the majority of these on the head of obama. He had an opportunity to NOT SAY ANYTHING. Instead he chose another route. He chose to stir things up even more than they already were. He had no more information than the rest of did several days ago. But he jusmed in anyway. And, of course, he put his crack team down at the justice department on it. If I were Zimmerman, I would fear them more than the black panthers. All the black panthers can do is kill you, eric holder and his team of high paid government racists can make your life a living hell, for real.
One more thing before I call this rant done, jaun williams is a complete jackass. Why is he only black when he is surrounded by other black people? It’s funny though, I don’t think he had quite the reaction to his dumbass comments today that he was expecting. Neither of the other two panelists agreed with his take on this issue, for the most part. jaun williams seems to want to be al sharpton lite on race issues, but just another guy on everything else…
