Lies turn Trayvon Martin’s death into a race crime
WHEN is a racist attack not a racist attack? Stephen Lawrence was murdered by racists. Trayvon Martin was shot dead by a “white hispanic”. In the video at the foot of the story, a white tourist gets beaten up and assaulted – sexually? – by blacks. Is it racist?
NBC featured the 911 call Trayvon Martin’s killer Geroge Zimmerman made before a shot was fired:
Zimmerman: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good, or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.”
911: “Okay. And this guy, is he white black or Hispanic?”
Zimmerman: “He looks black.”
NBC edited that exchange and created:
This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.
ABC reported: “Trayvon Martin Video shows no blood or bruises on George Zimmerman”. Days later and ABC had another look and noticed that Zimmerman seemed to have been hurt:
Barack Obama told all media that Trayvon Martin could be his son. This is the same Obama whose Homeland Security issued a video telling Americans that people in hoods are up to no good and must be shopped to the police. The official line is: “If You See Something, Say Something (TM).”
So. Is this a racist attack, then?
The video shows a man being punched in the face in Downtown Baltimore. You can hear his head hit the pavement near the entrance to Courthouse East.
Instead of helping, people laugh. Then, the crowd strips him naked and takes his car keys, watch, money and iPhone.
