Time To Tear Up The Old, Tired, Beat Up “Race Card”

Time To Tear Up The Old, Tired, Beat Up “Race Card”

Over the last few days, I have been keeping tabs on the tragic shooting death about one month ago of Trayvon Martin and of the recent protests that have erupted since then.

Protests which includes protesters wearing “hoodies” which are sweatshirts and sweatshirts jackets that have a hood as part of the sweatshirt. Many protesters have even taken to include wearing the hooded sweatshirt as part of their protests.

WELCOME to BOTH spring and to the protests season.

Also this very tragic and truly it is, this shooting incident is not just only for the family of Trayvon Martin family, but also for the family of George Zimmerman, and to extend it, to not just to Sanford,FL,USA, but also to the rest of the United States of America.

What is most tragic by what has been going on is that once again, the old, tired, beat-up race card” is being played up once again, in order to further divide the USA. Not too long after news of this shooting incident went national, folks such as Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Louis Farrakhan jumped into this case as a way to not only join in on the protests, but USE this very tragic incident not only for their own political agendas,but also further fuels more tension in an already tense situation.

Does the Tawana Brawley case ring a bell?

IMHO, what I see from all of this is QUESTIONS and WAY TOO MANY QUESTIONS THAT NEED TO BE ASKED in regards to the Trayvon Martin case.

Questions such as:

1.Why was Trayvon Martin in a gated community to begin with?

2.Was George Zimmerman a security guard or not?

3.Was there any witness or witnesses who had witnessed what really happened between both Mr.Martin and that of Mr. Zimmerman?

4.Was Mr. Zimmerman beaten?

5.Did Mr. Zimmerman went beyond doing what he was allowed to do as a neighborhood block watchman?

6.Was Mr. Trayvon already in trouble with the law?

7. Why this rush to judgement?

8.Why is the old news media not asking the really tough and important questions?

These above questions is just the tip of the iceberg into why it is very important not only that the NEEDED QUESTIONS be asked, but also IT IS TIME and I call out those who have been fueling the fires of division which this nation, the United States can ill afford to have when it is being pressed on all sides not just only with a very challenging economy, but also with REAL ISSUES such as OBAMACARE.

I call upon both activists and politicos to stop using this tragic incident for your own agendas and gain. ENOUGH.

If you must be concerned about crime and violence, be concerned about black-on-black crime, gang related crime, and crime on children and youths, including the shooting death of 6-year-old little girl in Chicago, IL, USA.

It is time to tear up the old, tired, beat-up “race card”.

“New information about Trayvon Martin has been leaked and reveals that the unarmed teenager was suspended from school, and is accused of beating up the man who shot him. CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann reports.”

“Some students in New Haven took part in a nationwide show of support Monday for an unarmed Florida teenager fatally shot by a neighborhood watch volunteer, who still hasn’t been charged.”

Tragic Media Circus

Tragic Media Circus

Having been listening to all kinds of comments in the media, both old and new on the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old Florida high school student who was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, who is a neighborhood watch captain, and with this tragic incident, the state of Florida‘s “stand your ground self-defense” law was also brought into question.

What is troubling is that this incident is now getting political and very divisive politics at that at a time not only in a USA Presidential election that is bound to become very, very heated but also brings up issues of race as well the old “race card” issues when it was more about the issues of crime and state laws.

What has been going on the last few days, with both the old news media and politicos jumping on this Trayvon Martin shooting death band wagon by using a very tragic incident instead of what should be going through the normal United States of America and state of Florida criminal justice system and not bring in either “politics” or “race card” hustilers who only see an opportunity to play up on divisions. Add to that the old news media facination with creating a media circus, it has gotten on in the Trayvon Martin shooting death case.

At a time when the real focus should be place on rebuilding the American economy as well as the need to rediscover positive American principles and values that have made the United States a GREAT COUNTRY, the LAST THING that this nation NEEDS is MORE DIVISIVE incidents such as what had taken place in Florida.

“The parents of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin met with U.S. Justice Department officials Thursday. They will also rally with civil rights activist Al Sharpton, who says ‘you can’t have a legal precedent where people apologize and walk away.’ (March 22)”

Oh Mr. Sharpton, by getting involved in this tragic incident simply gives credence to what I have been saying this this blog article that the Trayvon Martin case has become a “tragic media circus”.

President Barack Hussein Obama’s take in this case:

With MANY THANKS To Both The Examiner And Charlie Spiering. Read More Here:“Obama: If I Had A son, He would Look Like Trayvon”

President Obama, again it would have been better to let the criminal justice system work itself out in this case and have not inserted yourself into this incident for political gain.

Still another take:

At least the above writer makes an effort to go beyond the “offical old news media” news reporting.
