Listen to a recording of the show.
Couldn’t the Augusta Chronicle Editorial Section (ACES) just have left this alone instead of rubbing the verdict into the face of all who know from personal experience that race has everything to do with who is considered suspicious, who has “ground” to stand on, which victims receive police resources in an investigation and whose homicides are justifiable?
But ACES says race has nothing to do with it.
When Trayvon was shot, why did not the NRA come out and say, like it said with the school employees killed in Newtown, CT, “Had Trayvon been armed, he would have killed Zimmerman.” Because self-defense is not a right given to black people.
For white people who can’t understand these things, try reading some testimonials from We Are Not Trayvon Martin.
The ACES uses hyperbole to discredit blacks’ defense of their right to walk down a street without armed vigilantes following them. It writes:
The very people who bitterly complain that George Zimmerman stalked Trayvon Martin now seem intent on dogging Zimmerman …
Does it have evidence that Trayvon’s parents are “dogging” Zimmerman? Or the NAACP? Or any recognized body? Or are individuals expressing their frustrations on Twitter now a way to judge the entire movement it took to even have the Sanford police investigate the incident.
BTW, how many racist, threatening tweets and comments in its own web site against non-whites does the ACES write about?
