I don’t know what planet these people come from. I am SURE it depends on where you were raised, by whom you were raised, what sort of education AND LIFE EXPERIENCE you’ve had… because I’m from New York City and New Jersey, and I can PROMISE YOU THIS MUCH… regarding subliminal judgments of survival instincts versus CONSCIOUSLY THINKING, “THERE’S A BLACK PERSON! HE’S A CRIMINAL!!!” According to WHOM?
What IS scary is if you are the only WHITE person in an ALL-BLACK NEIGHBORHOOD that is poverty-stricken. And you don’t know what would be worse: running into the wrong bunch of cops for a bad license plate, or being assaulted for being white.
Unless someone has a way to destroy and reconstruct the entire brain of human beings, there is no point in denying that we are a product of our DNA code and yes, also of our life experiences. And these vary WIDELY from person to person – REGARDLESS OF RACE.
I hear on CNN everyone crying out for a ‘cure’… Racial profiling, criminal profiling… BOTH of these are (as for racial profiling… I won’t try to prove that, but use your own research… I think the official stance is subject to DIFFER GREATLY from REALITY)… Profiling IS A LEGITIMATE METHOD PRACTICED BY THE FBI!!! THERE ARE CRIMINAL PROFILERS WHO USE CRIMINAL PROFILING AS LITERALLY THEIR JOB DESCRIPTION!!!
This is absolutely absurd! George Zimmerman being guilty of acting like a cop, guilty of being “white” despite being half Latino…
I have no doubt the fact that his dad was a judge is more of a factor. Perhaps George Z. wanted to follow in what he felt were his own father’s honorable footsteps – he had no law degree and by his age, becoming an attorney and eventually a judge was probably out of the question. So, a cop – maybe hoping to make police chief, or gain some high ranking title.
Nothing wrong with that in itself, right?? Unless of course you think the system is unfair. And it is. But LIFE is unfair.
Bottom line is simple: In any, if not every complex system, there will be cases such as this one, such as OJ, Michael Jackson (both child molestation charge, and his death, and his DOCTOR’S GUILTY VERDICT, despite his clients and records showed him to be RESPONSIBLE and a GOOD DOCTOR… Was he convicted because he was black, or because Michael Jackson had more POWER and INFLUENCE and PERSUASION and MONEY?????
I think it’s time to just STOP the “garbage talk” and understand that NEVER will laws be perfect.
When you PASS MORE LAWS, YOU ARE LITERALLY TAKING YOUR TAX DOLLARS FROM FUNDING EDUCATION (IN POOR COMMUNITIES – INCLUDING ‘MINORITIES’) AND STEALING THAT MONEY FROM EDUCATION AND GIVING IT TO MORE POLICE AND LAWYERS AND GUNS.
So the best option for EVERYBODY to do is this: EDUCATE. Even if it’s for free. Adopt a black adolescent, even if you’re white. Just like with the ‘gay rights’ issue, also current in this country, we need to UNITE not UNTIE … When you UNTIE civility and order, you are setting it up “nicely” to turn that LINE from one of UNITY into a ROPE in the shape of a NOOSE.
This almost makes me SICK. We need to have PEACE. EVEN IF WE ASSUME GEORGE ZIMMERMAN IS AS BAD AS OSAMA BIN LADEN, OR THE BOSTON BOMBER, OR CASEY ANTHONEY… That is ONE PERSON (George is one person).
George in NO WAY represents all half Caucasian and half Latino Americans.
And watching CNN AC360 tonight, right now, 7/16/2013… I see damage control. It looks like a Huckabee show, only there are more dark-skinned people in the audience than white-skinned people.
OJ… did not get acquitted because he was black. He was acquitted because he had virtual commodities (sorry for that misnomer) of 1. fame and 2. MONEY!!!
Casey did not get acquitted because she was white. (Casey Anthoney).
These cases are publicized under a money-first, people-second – technical term, capitalism (as opposed to socialism) – regulated by a government that is STRUGGLING to get this country’s ACT TOGETHER! Yet we seem to be taking steps BACKWARDS the more we (or the ever-mysterious “they”.. lol) try to turn things around.
There is one WORD (in English, American) that people in the US need to not just recite as defined, but truly possess in their HEARTS, SOULS, AND MINDS. That is the ONLY way, I believe, we can EVER reach the outcome that most if not ALL of us actually want!
