“If a white male teen would have been involved in this scenario, both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different.” – President Barack Obama 071913
Apparently the bullet would have made a different decision based on race?
Or, was it the Gun that was practicing institutional bigotry?
Or, was it George… who would have allowed himself to be killed on the sidewalk had the attacker been a “white male teen”?
Or, was it Trayvon… who, under the Presidents scenario, being “White” would not have doubled back and punched George because the Creepy Ass Cracker had the Audacity to wonder what Trayvon was doing wandering around a crime riddled neighborhood on a dark rainy night? (According to Rachel Jeantel. And, the Jury. And, Charles Barkley.)
Even though I’m not smart enough to find the Racism present in the Self-Identified Hispanic George Zimmerman… or one of the above mentioned racist items, my Self-Identified African-American President say’s it’s there… so it’s there.
Previously, I just locked my doors regardless of who was approaching my car… because people should not be approaching my car, unless I could discern they were a Senator.
And now I understand that when I lock my doors due to a person approaching my car I either need to assess the color of that person’s skin… and feel like a bad, bad racist if they are Black, or not lock my doors and know that no matter what happens in regard to my, or my families, safety I will be an enlightened color blind pillar of society.
I learn so much about my innately racist ways when I listen to my President.
I’m also forever indebted to Attorney General Eric Holder for teaching me that It’s my duty to hand over everything I’ve worked for and Run Away when confronted by someone willing to do me harm. I had it completely turned around.
I know… I’m a Self-identified Anglo, and I realize I need a lot of help.
But it goes without saying… although it’s said all the time…
I’ll NEVER understand. If I did, what would those who make money enlightening me do?
That’s why I drink a ton of Tequila… to drown my insensitive ways.
I’m such a jerk.
I have to go sort out and throw away the racist bullets hiding in my closet.

Yes! Just say it man, say it. The ridiculousness of it really stands out. What is really scary however is that if Trayvon Martin had been Scott White, what would really be different would be the absence of demonstrations in 100 cities. They shown their racism by their actions.
Scary. Really scary.

It’s really about power. Being offended carries weight. That leverage is slipping away, or at least the receptive ear is going deaf. To keep that power there must be racial strife in the U.S. Even if it must be created, fabricated or provoked.
