Someone once told me that "Blacks" are a passionate people. I believe that all people can be and should be passionate about anything they strongly believe in.
The incitement to violence is a far cry from passion, it is the work of the devil.
It never ceases to amaze me how much "hate" towards White people exists in the Black communities across this country. I've never known how people who enjoy unearned benefits can literally "bite the hand that feeds them."
I can truly understand how the family of Trayvon Martin must feel, and I certainly share in their grief, but as a Christian I share the grief of all families who lose loved ones, whether it be to an accident, or illness, or violence. I sympathize with the communities from which they come. What I do not agree with is the incessant outcry for vengeance against innocent people being perpetrated by so-called Black leaders. A couple of points of clarification before I continue: I do not believe their are African-Americans, I believe there are Americans of various color and national origin, however, if you were born in the United States, you are not African anything, you are an American. If you are a Black American born in the past 100 years, you are not a slave, and you don't even know someone who is, or was a slave. If you had a ancient ancestor who was a slave, you need to remind yourself of the hundreds of thousands of White men and women who died to gain your freedom in this country. As free born Americans, you have the same inalienable rights that any other American born person has, regardless of your color. Your rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are endowed by your Creator, and since the end of the American Civil War, your inalienable rights are understood, and accepted all American people, yes even White people. Since the 1960's, people who are Black in color have been the recipients of benefits, most of which have not been afforded to peoples of other color, so it's time to stop crying victim and move on. You, as Black Americans enjoy the same rights as all Americans, White people owe you nothing. What you do with your right to pursue happiness is entirely your decision, stealing wealth from White Americans is not a right, it's a benefit that some politicians thought you should have, and passed laws giving you money, that someone else earned. When rioting and whining Black Americans awaken from your free stuff, and I'm oppressed stupor, perhaps you'll look around and see what successful people of like color have accomplished, and then move forward and do likewise. You may someday realize that other Americans will not always be there to support you, and you will one day have to earn your own way. Just as a general principle, "killing" Whitey will not get you anything but trouble in the end.
Men, and I use the term with caution, like Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, and Eric Holder are doing Black Americans a huge and detrimental disservice. Inciting people to riot only boosts their ego, and the more Blacks that follow like sheep, the more power they have to keep you under their yoke. Every one of those men I mentioned should be in jail right now, for inciting unrest, they are no better than the criminal that yells FIRE in a crowded dark theater.
I have a real problem with the New Black Panther Party and it's leaders. Let's see there is Malik Zulu Shabazz and a relative I assume named King Samir Shabazz. If those aren't two of the most ridiculous and made up names I've ever heard. What is a Shabazz anyway? It's certainly not any African name I've ever heard! What is it that attracts good hard working Black Americans to listen to these street thugs? Black Americans need to understand, when some moron like Shabazz declares war on "Whitey", he includes all Black people. If in fact the New Black Panthers begin the indiscriminate murder of innocent White people, does the Black community think that "Whitey" will simply take that kind of violence in stride, without retaliation. Declaring war on Whitey will not be conducive to good health for Black Americans. If any thing, uncalled for violence will be met with violence. A war between the races is something that Black Americans do not want, under any circumstances. It is the Black violent leaders that have their people enslaved, not innocent White people!
As a precaution, White Americans need to steer clear of predominately Black neighborhoods, at least for a little while. Regardless of the turmoil, White people should be prepared to defend themselves. True Black leaders need to caution their people of the consequences that will most assuredly come from violent, unprovoked attacks on White Americans.
The justice system worked for George Zimmerman, and if in fact Trayvon Martin continued banging Zimmerman's head on the concrete, when he should have stopped, and taken the opportunity to walk away, then justice was served for Trayvon Martin also.
