Obama Promises Probe: ‘If I Had a Son, He’d Look Like Trayvon’

Jonathan Easley and Peter Schroeder, The Hill, March 23, 2012

President Obama has promised a full investigation into the killing of Trayvon Martin, saying Friday, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.

“And I think [Trayvon’s parents] are right to expect all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness that it deserves and that we’re going to get to the bottom of what happened,” Obama said in response to a reporter’s question.

The remarks represented the first time Obama has waded into the controversy surrounding Martin, an unarmed Florida teenager killed weeks ago by a self-identified volunteer neighborhood watchman. The killing has sparked protests around the country and a nationwide debate over race.

“When I think about this boy, I think about my own kids and I think every parent in America should be able to understand why it is absolutely imperative that we investigate every aspect of this and that everybody pulls together, federal, state and local, to figure out exactly how this tragedy happened,” the president said in remarks at a Rose Garden ceremony unveiling his nominee for the World Bank.

“Obviously this is a tragedy; I can only imagine what these parents are going through,” he continued. ”I think all of us have to do some soul-searching to figure out, how does something like this happen?”

Just prior to the shooting, Zimmerman called 911 to report what he said was suspicious behavior on behalf of Martin. Zimmerman then began to follow Martin, despite the emergency dispatcher telling him not to do so.

Police questioned Zimmerman but did not arrest him. A Florida state law known as the “stand your ground” law permits citizens to use deadly force when acting in self-defense, but a grand jury is being called to investigate the incident.

Martin’s death has provoked protests and intense media focus, and on Monday students across Florida held rallies calling for Zimmerman’s arrest. On Wednesday protesters in New York City held a “million hoodie march” in honor of the teen, whom many believe was targeted because of his skin color and clothing.

The Department of Justice also has stepped in to investigate the shooting, and the Sanford, Fla., chief of police has stepped down.

    Leave it to the Mulatto Messiah to inject himself into a purely local matter, just as he did with the incident in Massachusetts involving the “put upon” black college professor. I suspect he’s making a big mistake this time — just as he did the last time — because the public’s opinion on the death of the “hood in the hoodie” is not nearly as unanimous as that of the mainstream media.

    Why has not a single national media outlet told us exactly what the police report says about the incident? Why did Zimmerman have cuts on his face and the back of his head, and a bloody nose? Why has the media focused solely on the “outrage” (ginned up mostly by its own inflammatory “reporting” on the incident) instead of really trying to get to the bottom of this incident?

    And why do they keep showing a photo of the black youth which appears to have been taken when he was in fifth grade? It has been reported that he was 6-2, and a high school football player. And by the way, why was he suspended from school for five days recently, and why did some lawyer go to court to prevent the reason from being divulged to the press? As if any of them would want to report it, of course.

    • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

      Why?

      Because the media, in conjunction with the black lobby and the Obama machine, are trying to provoke black riots, because they somehow think it will help either the black lobby, liberalism in general, and/or Obama’s re-election campaign.

      I won’t want there to be riots, because you never want to play with fire.  But if there are going to be riots, I would only hope they wait until October.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Wayne-Leon-Engle/1625710108 Wayne Leon Engle

        Say, I never thought of it that way. Think we could manage to PROVOKE some riots in October?

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OPU5URORKFDNRNNZ676D47I5IA Wayne

        Because the media will say anything to boost its own ratings, even if that means incitement to riot and hate.   And if it helps re-elect Obama, even better, since these lovely people are usually liberals.

    • tickyul

      Exactly what I was thinking.

      Obama’s biased pandering, will really rev the natives up.

      On the plus side, this will drive blacks and whites further apart.

    • Dave4088

      Because anytime there is racial conflict the mulatto messiah feels its gravitational pull and the need to prove that he’s black enough to the virulently racist American black community.   The same reason he moved to Chicago since it was ground zero for black vs. white racial conflict.  Race baiting is an art form with our African potentate-in-chief. 

      The media is absolutely shameless in their biased reporting of the incident.  Rather than show a fairly large, menacing looking black teen while noting the possible behavioral problems they use an old photo that depicts him as a baby faced, happy go lucky young black kid to elicit sympathy from the unsuspecting.   

      Now, sadly, Zimmerman can look forward to being tried and quite possibly convicted in a kangaroo court.  The “Justice” administration will see to that.  Ain’t multitracial mobocracy just grand?  

      • MikeofAges

         So he retains 97 percent of the vote. If he slipped to 93.5 it could cost him in a close election. Slippage is slippage, no matter where in the electorate it happens.

  • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

    Any son of his would look like Trayvon the Skittles Man?

    I’m no biologist, but my guess would be that any son of Barack and Michelle Obama would look something like him, or something like the men closely related to Michelle, or somewhere in between.

    Maybe he meant that any son of his would BE like Martin, though I can understand why he didn’t say that, because it wouldn’t have spoken well to his skills as the father of a man child.

    • http://cephalus.myopenid.com/ AnalogMan

      “Look like me” is one of their cliche code phrases.  It means simply “black”. Just Obama trying to cement his cred wit’ da bruthas.

    • gemjunior

      Michelle’s jawline has a similarity to a piranha or barracuda, the way the mandible protrudes.  It seems that this look is one that can make a person look aggressive and stupid at the same time, a bad combination.  I agree with you on what a male child spawn might look like ( the country has enough problems, thank God that isn’t one of them).

      Re the 2nd URL:  Of course there is no paper trail between Merah and AQ.  Do they actually think AQ has a home office that prints membership cards?  AQ is more of a mentality and an imagery rather than a highly centralized organization.

      • MekongDelta69

        Besides, that’s a AP story. If I want to get closer to the truth, I’d have kept up my subscription to Pravda or the New York Times or the AQ Daily (aka, ‘Explosive’ News Network).

     Let’s have a kool-aid summit and hammer this out.

  • Hirschibold

    He didn’t come right out and say any white people acted “stupidly” in this instance, simply because this is an election year. If he wins in 2012, and this sort of thing happens in  2015, I imagine that he will behave like a man who has everything he wants, and virtually nothing to lose. Then his replies to these sorts of racially tense incidents will be something on the order of “Kiss my a**! Black power, suckas!”

    • MekongDelta69

      He didn’t come right out and say any white people acted ‘stupidly’ in this instance, simply because this is an election year.

      Only partially true.

      He COULDN’T say that because Zimmerman is Spanish (or Hispandex or brown or whatever term people use these days). He’s NOT white.

      • Hirschibold

         True Zimmerman isn’t white, but the MSM has continued to call him white. If Obama calls him white there isn’t going to be any clarification or repercussions.

        • MekongDelta69

          That was a big disappointment to the left after screaming, “He’s white, white, white” for a few days. I haven’t heard anyone in the MSM screaming, He’s brown, brown, brown” lately. Have you? Don’t stare at the TV too long waiting for that. It’ll hurt your eyes!

          • Hirschibold

             Besides, the police chief (or the Crowley in this case) is white, and will be the one to receive the “stupid” tar from the president, should he feel he has the latitude to be his racist self.

            The city manager, the one who has the power to dismiss the police chief, is a black man.  He held a press conference after the vote of no confidence and said he would not dismiss the chief until the results of an independent investigation made clear it was necessary.  I saw this man try his best to keep the rule of law paramount in the midst of all this noise.  

            Give credit people.

            I’m not looking for the links – I’ve seen this a few times.  I was wondering what a white hispanic was.  Was he from Spain?  I’ve seen “non-white hispanic” used on checklists for “what is your ethnicity” (basically asking if you are non-white, if not, get out your wallet) and all of a sudden now we have  a white-hispanic.  It’s a hispanic who is a white hater.  White = haters.  Get it?  Hispanics are minorities who are usually NOT haters, but hatees, by the evil whites.  The ones who hurt more minor minorities are whiter minorities, so just insert white in front of their minority.  Got it?

  • MekongDelta69

    I’m waiting on “The One” to comment on all (or ANY, for that matter) of the black on white murders, which took place just THIS week (see below on AmRen, or on the other sites readers here obviously frequent).

    Maybe I missed it, but did “Dear Leader” comment on the ‘oppressed’ AQ ‘youth of color,’ who killed those kids in France?
    (If he did, and I did miss it, he probably blamed Bush or Limbaugh or Solyndra or the Volt or Republicans or Americans or Martians or any sentient being or inanimate object for what happened. Just like he did when Ortega blasted America to his face and Mr. Wimp just said, “I’m glad Mr. Ortega didn’t blame me for things America did when I was just three.”)

    Vote in November. Vote early, vote often. ESPECIALLY if you’re dead and/or an illegal alien and/or you’re not registered and/or there’s voter fraud going on. Remember – it’s your RIGHT!

    One must wonder if this gasoline throwing by the media will backfire on the left.  Sure, this will increase the numbers of blacks that show up to the polls in November – but doesn’t it have the potential to drive a wedge between blacks and Hispanics in Florida?

    This has the potential to get ugly really fast – on the order of wide-spread civil insurrection a la Rodney King – but this time with the blacks and Hispanics at each-others’ throats.

    “This is what it is all about folks. Get Whitey out of the police force. They are already doing that with firefighters, our White doctors, our White EVERYTHING.”

    My mother once told me that her third grade teacher said that blacks will one day make us their slaves, that was in 1929, just outside of Detroit.  How right that statement has become.  We are told to give up our money in taxes to provide for others in the way of food, shelter, health care, education and entertainment.  Is that at least the modern definition of slavery?

    In my local newspaper a black physician wrote an opinion piece about the Martin shooting.  He went on and on and was obviously angry and almost out of control.  He made generalizations about my community and white people in general.  I thought about this, how easy would this man just forget to remove an instrument when sewing back up a white person or to nick an artery?  After all, we kill their children, don’t we?  I feel badly for the younger white folks looking to the future in this country.

    • saxonsun

      The younger white folks have been thoroughly brainwashed about blacks.

      • Gen__Lee

        An extreme generalization.  You obviously did not attend the recent American Renaissance conference.

        • gemjunior

          No, it may be somewhat generalizing but by no means extreme.  My son did a report for his school presenting the issue of Boer Genocide and almost his entire grade of lily-white high school sophomores almost had a stroke at the idea of blacks harming whites in these consistently black on white farm murders.  The ones at the AmRen and YWC counferences are the exception among the young not the rule.  But I hope soon it changes and you are right….

    Looking at all the protests going on in the country, I can only shake my head. Massive indignation about a case that is still murky when you could fill volumes with black atrocities.

    Looks like most people here don’t understand why Blacks are making such a fuss.
    Well- I don’t understand how you don’t understand.

    The principal difference from various crime acts perpetrated by Blacks is- Zimmerman was not arrested. Now, we can argue about it, but this is rather unique- you shoot an unarmed minor & you’re not even arrested.

    In gruesome cases of Black on White crime murderers were arrested & tried (or awaiting the trial). So, this is a judicial gray zone that leaves Blacks a space to act their favorite role of Whitey’s victims.

    • Insoc

      The cops went by the evidence they encountered at the scene.  Zimmerman had injuries to his face and the back of his head.  The back of his shirt was wet and covered with grass stains indicating Zimmerman had his back on the ground.  The eyewitness “John” said Zimmerman WAS on the ground being pummeled by Martin and calling for help.   The injuries and shirt were consistent with the witness and Zimmerman’s account.  The cops figured from all the evidence and the eyewitness account that Martin attacked Zimmerman and the shooting was justified to prevent death or great bodily harm.   Martin was not unarmed, he was using his fists as weapons.

       “Unarmed” blacks are known to stomp their victims in the head, Martin was 6’2″ and on his high school’s football team.  The voice heard calling for help on the 911 call is Zimmerman’sEvidently, the prosecutor chose not to prosecute based on the evidence that was presented in the crime report.What evidence do you have that the cops and Zimmer man were wrong?

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Zadie-Progressive-Indie/100003075952377 Zadie Progressive-Indie

        Well I guess he should not have been following this 17 year-old monster then huh.  Just think for a moment what would have happened if Zimmerman just stayed in his car and followed the boy until he reached his father’s home.  Trayvon would have delivered the Skittles to his younger brother and continued watching the All-Star game.  End of story.

        • Insoc

          Guess the 17 year old monster shouldn’t have attacked and beaten a man carrying a loaded gun, hun?

          The Skittles man would have delivered the Skittles to his younger brother and continued watching the All-Satr Game.

          End of story.

        • Ingsoc

          The area had had a lot of robberies lately, all by blacks.    The nearest store was 2 miles away.  The Skittles man had no receipt nor has video been discovered and shown of Martin buying candy/and or Iced Tea (why no calls for this).

          What was Martin doing out looking at houses?   It appeared he was casing them for future, probably daytime burglaries, because he had been suspended from school for tagging and drug possession.

          Mr. Skittles, was also caught with women’s jewelry and burglary tools, the jewelry sent off to the local police dept. for comparison with recently stolen items.

          So, yeah, according to you and the media,  he was out just enjoying an evening walk, an innocent black child, A/B student beloved by all when a white racist stopped and shot him in cold blood.  You and the media are delusional.

    • haroldcrews

      And if he had been arrested but later released and the charges dropped because he acted in self defense blacks would have been satisfied?  Somehow I don’t think so.  No there still would have been protests and outrage.

    Gingrich Calls Obama Comments on Trayvon Martin Shooting ‘Disgraceful’By Matthew Shelley | National Journal – 16 hrs ago

    Republican
    presidential candidate Newt Gingrich harshly criticized President Obama
    for commenting on Trayvon Martin’s race as he extended condolences to
    the 17-year-old shooting victim’s parents on Friday. Obama said, “If I
    had a son, he would look like Trayvon,” a remark that Gingrich said he
    found “disgraceful” and “appalling.”

    “What the president said,
    in a sense, is disgraceful,” Gingrich said on Sean Hannity’s radio show.
    “It’s not a question of who that young man looked like. Any young
    American of any ethnic background should be safe, period. We should all
    be horrified no matter what the ethnic background.

    “Is the
    president suggesting that if it had been a white who had been shot, that
    would be OK because it didn’t look like him? That’s just nonsense
    dividing this country up. It is a tragedy this young man was shot. It
    would have been a tragedy if he had been Puerto Rican or Cuban,  or if
    he had been white, or if he had been Asian-American, or if he’d been a
    Native American. At some point, we ought to talk about being Americans.
    When things go wrong to an American, it is sad for all Americans. Trying
    to turn it into a racial issue is fundamentally wrong. I really find it
    appalling.” ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

    Hm….could be worse, at least he said something.

      Excellent point Bardon!  If Gingrich could only take the same rational position when talking about illegal invaders from Mexico, I would support him. Instead, he does a 180 on that subject and has adopted a “compassionate” position when dealing with those who have zero respect for our immigration laws, and even less respect for this country!

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/12/30/woman-charged-murder-case-missing-houston-year-old/

    HOUSTON — A woman has been charged with capital murder in the death of a 12-year-old Houston boy whose badly burned body was found in a ditch this week following his Christmas Eve disappearance.

    Mona Yvette Nelson, 44, was arrested Wednesday. She remained in jail Thursday on no bond. Court records did not list an attorney.

    Police say Jonathan Foster, who had been left home alone, was kidnapped from his home on Christmas Eve before being killed and burned.

    “Mona Nelson has made what investigators call a self-serving statement, which places her with Jonathan. However, she has not admitted to killing him,” Houston police spokesman Kese Smith told the Houston Chronicle. “She is the only suspect.”

    • saxonsun

      Blacks just love to burn living things. About a year ago one put a baby in the microwave, another put her kid in the oven and here in NYC, a black girl put a kitten in the oven.

        Out of Miami:

        “A group of five minority teens set a teenage white boy on fire and laughed about it. The teens, say police, set Brewer on fire after dousing him with rubbing alcohol, and have been charged in the attack. The boy remains in intensive care and doctors say it will take months for him to recover.”

        It’s time we whites fought fire with fire.

        And just last week in Cape Town, South Africa, we had another incidence of “People’s Justice”, when three men were necklaced.  The front page of the local rag showed them with gasoline-filled tires around their necks, moments before they were lit.  The natural sequel to those fun anti-Apartheid rallies in the 1980s.

        But again, they weren’t White men (didn’t “look like me”), so I’m having a hard time trying to raise any concern about it.

      • radical7

        Hmmm? You just reminded me of sordid, horrific memories of  mobs of Whites murdering lynching Blacks and in some cases, burning them afterwards.

        • Afrikanerhart1

          And in just about every case those who were lynched were guity of a crime that outraged the community.

          What is it with the anti-White trolls on this thread, anyway?  There seems to be more activity than normal.

          Use the flag button on these clowns, folks.  That’s what it;s there for.

          • http://www.vega.com/ Vega – Poli-Cultural Humorist

            Standing up for someone who was targeted based on color is not being anti-white. How the hell would you know if the lynchings were justified or not? If Zimmerman were lynched tomorrow, would you say it was justified because he is guilty of a crime that outraged a community?

          • Afrikanerhart1

            To vega below….

            First off, what are you doing here?  Amren is kind of out of your comfort zone, wouldn’t you agree?  You’ll find this place even less tolerant of your views than RWN.

            Second, don’t put words in my mouth.  I never said that lynching were “justified”.  I’m a rule of of law kind of guy, so I feel vigilante justice is rarely justified.   But I hate to see people try to trot out that tired old misconception that all lynchings were products of “racism”.  The 3000 or so White that were lynched from the mid 19th to mid 20th centuries put the lie to that.  The fact of the matter is that most people got lynched because they were acused of some act that outraged the community or in cases were the community had no faith in justice being carried out.  Race rarely had much to do with it. 

            Finally, the guy above was indeed trolling by drawing such a comparison.

      • anarchyst

        I will be happy to . . . here is what I posted and it ended up disappearing in the “ether” . . .
        It turns out that Mr. Zimmerman was on the ground being pummeled by “poor little” Trayvon Martin. Mr. Zimmerman was merely defending himself against “great bodily harm”. The police report and witnesses state that Mr. Zimmerman was attacked by “poor little” Trayvon Martin (who outweighs Mr. Zimmerman by a considerable amount). The grass stains on Mr. Zimmerman’s back and the wounds to the back of his head PROVE that he was attacked. Of course the feds will get involved in this so-called “civil rights (for some)” “violation” because no crime was committed by Mr. Zimmerman. Of course, it will be brought out that Mr. Zimmerman uttered a racial “slur” (never happened). What we have in MY country is “mob rule” with the certain minority as the complainant and the federal government as the “enforcer”. Look at the inaction against the “Jena 6″ and the “Knoxville murders” . . . google them and prepare to be sickened by the depravity of the “minorities” involvedRevolution is coming . . . honest people are tired of one certain race (blacks) forcing our so-called “legal system” to charge an innocent person under threat of violence. Yes, revolution is coming . . . it won’t be pretty, but is sorely needed.

    Another example of this administration’s anti-white bias. Sadly the Republican’s will not point out all the black-on-white crimes that are committed daily.  They will not point out Barry’s racism.  They will pretend that they are running against Harry Truman, if they get that tough.

      I never much liked the Jawa Report, because it was too neo-connish.  This Jawa Report is labeled “3.0 beta,” so it’s probably a different Jawa Report.  At this moment, you’ll see a Facebook pic of Trayvon the Skittles Man the media aren’t showing, and also a media story that it was known that the suspect in the French Jewish school shootings yelled “Allah U Akbar” from his scooter.  That means they knew he wasn’t a white right winger, yet the media peddled that notion for days, in spite of them knowing better.

        Zadie,

        What if the very oppression the Blacks suffer under was from those who claim to liberate them?

        Look at all the Black neighborhood in the inner cities.  Who rules these places?
        The Democrats.

        Who are the Democrats run by?

        Naiive White Elites, who think Black men are weak, and pander to them.

        Mushy-headed hippy Whites, who try to apply their mushy ideas to the Black community.  Black people do not buy this mushy nonsense any more than Whites, but they get it forced on them.

        Black men who are friends with the above two, porch negroes basically.

        Strong discipline, a focus on the family, no incentivising single-motherhood, and entrepreneurship can help right Black America.

        If you tell someone they are only subject to influences from outside, they will be weak.  If you tell somebody everybody hates you for your skin, they will become hostile, and will not seek out opportunities.

        Bring opportunity to Black America, you have been tricked by false friends.  You bought your freedom from a party that sold your soul.

      • MikeofAges

         The people here wish young black men were different than they are. Most believe they could be. Blacks have been as victimized  as anybody by the decline of the industrial economy and the rise of the service and information economy, a process which began around 1970 and has continued on till today. Those blacks who have been able to adapt to this change have done pretty well. Those who haven’t remain stuck in the underclass, with predictable results. Those whose parent or parents have done well who fall out of the middle class track at an early age also seem to get involved in crime and violence. No middle ground there, or so it seems in our eyes.

        Yes, people are concerned about society’s problems. But we largely are concerned about our own problems. Discrimination against us in various forms and the lack of any area that can be identified as our North American homeland. Or maybe homelands, since we are not all the same by any means.

  • Detroit_WASP

    I wonder if Trayvon’s parents have layered up yet?  I’ll bet they are exploring suing the shooter as well as the condo complex and association.  If they have ANY insurance, they will be sued.

  • davejon

    As a Brit I was fascinated by his family’s lawyer – a Negro – and his pronunciation of the English language. I always thought only low class, uneducated blacks sounded like that – but a supposedly educated black lawyer? Why is that?  Jessie Jackson sounds the same. Can anyone enlighten me as to the origin of the Negro accent?

    ps what sort of name is “Trayvon” – is it “Trevor” but mis pronounced? Wierd.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ran-Kelvin/100000674993311 Ran Kelvin

      It is almost too painful for caucasians to discuss.  Briefly, negroes have developed an almost secret language that only their own kind and maybe some few other races that have chosen to become negroid in behavior will understand.  The language by the way has been given official status as a dialect of English.  That dialect is called Eubonics.  Each February, for the entire month, America pays homage to everything black.  That includes making believe that America couldn’t exist without the many contributions of the world’s great negroes.  Each year, new history and historical figures are discovered and taught to all in this wide land.  And just in case the month of February is not enough, all year long we play a game called Affirmative Action in which we create the fantasy world that all good marxists are wont for all of us to live.  That includes truly adoring the language of our tormentors, Eubonics.  Oh, it has become fashionable for America’s black folk to make up names for their children.  As in, “We not goin to be namin our babies no slave names like Trevor, we be makin de names from de motha country, Africa, so’s we be namin our baby Trayvon.”

      • davejon

        Thanks for that explanation. 

        Here in the UK, the elites in the criminal justice system, education, media etc appear to ignore the lower than 75 IQ average which bedevils  around 25% of “our” negroes. I often wonder if they really do know but dare not admit it. But it’s great fun to poke at them and mock their ignorance.

      • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

        Two points:

        1.  I don’t think Ebonics is some secret code black language, I think it’s merely the sum total of both black laziness with grammar and spelling, and their inability to pronounce certain sounds.

        2.  I’ve heard theories about the reasons blacks give their children ostentatious first names, the most “intellectual” of those is that blacks in slavery knew their sons and daughters would be sold off, so they “tagged” their child with a unique first name so they would know that the particular person is their son or daughter when the inter-plantation gossip inevitably made its way around.i

        The problems with that theory:  One, these fanciful first names didn’t start until recent decades, and Two, it’s a tempest in a teapot to assign cerebral motivations to anything that blacks generally do.

        • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

          Adding to that, someone here at AR advanced a clever and unique, and probably correct, theory about a year or so ago about why black women give their children such weird first names.  His or her theory is that for most ghetto-type black women, having children is the highlight of their lives.  So they subconsciously give or formulate these strange names because they know this is all they’ll ever really do.  To give your newborn child a common first name would be to admit that there’s nothing unique (and yes, I have seen Unique in circulation) about procreating, thereby busting your “special” bubble.

          • robinbishop34

            I believe the book ‘Freakanomics’ goes into some theories and patterns of naming children, both black and white.

          • tacheles

            My theory is that blacks give their offspring weirdly concocted names as a protest against the media’s failure to indicate the race of criminals. These parents feel that they can do an end-run around this media censorship by giving their offspring readily identifiable “black” names like Antwon, Latrina, Treshon, Quovadis  or what have you. Actually, Quovadis is real. He ran a red light and killed someone. He didn’t pay attention to where he was going. (Don’t take my theory seriously. It’s supposed to be joke. However, the names are real).

          One more explanation.  At least a fun one.  I worked in a hospital in a unit with an older nurse.  She told us a story that when she was in the army, stationed at a hospital base, many blacks came there for treatment as it was the only hospital for miles around.  Well as things go, women would arrive ready to go.  After they had their baby they would ask this nurse what name they should use.  She would suggest names like Meconium ( The first intestinal discharge from newborns) and others as illustrative.  Cruel?  Perhaps but none the worse than these actual names: Jerrick, Rhashan, Sheik, Da-Shawn, Zyshonne or Illishalmelda.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OPU5URORKFDNRNNZ676D47I5IA Wayne

        They want to have people struggle to say and  remember their names so they can correct them and feel important.  Some low class whites do it, too, especially Hollywood stars.

    • Southern__Hoosier

       I believe it would  be a form of Pidgin English that Blacks speak around the world. It allows them to communicate without having to learn proper English. I would also point out that many Blacks do speak excellent English, when it suits their purpose.I would guess that Trayvon is a misspelling of Tyrone or some other common Black name based on Black pronunciation.

      • gemjunior

        What is really hilarious is that Tyrone is Irish.  Tir Eoghan (Land of Owen) my keyboard doesn’t have the fada accent marks so that’s as close as I can get – and it ends up being the name of countless thuggish negroes.  The irony.  Some of the most beautiful, scenic, picturesque green land in the world, named after an ancient king, Eoghan, (Owen) and his land (tir).  Good grief.

    Why is our “mainstream media” showing “poor little” Trayvon in a photo as a 12-year old when his age 17 “gangsta thug” picture is available?
    Our so-called “news media” practices journalistic malpractice when it comes to race. 
    The “Jena 6″ and the “Knoxville horrors” are downplayed while a “gangsta thug” gets elevated to near “sainthood”.
    The solution is to BOYCOTT the advertisers in these media outlets and LET THEM KNOW WHY.  Money doesn’t just “talk”, it “screams”. . . Hit them in the pocketbook.  When they see their “bottom line” collapse, they will get the message.
    Since whites have been effectively disenfranchised from the legal system (according to “attorney general” eric holder, whites are not afforded “protections” under the so-called “civil-rights (for some)” laws) , this may be the only way to get “justice”.

  • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

    Zimmerman does not stand a chance with Eric “my people” Holder in charge of this investigation. Initially, I was indifferent to this case and Zimmerman, given he is a Mestizo. However, my sympathies are starting to lean heavily towards Zimmerman, especially considering how the corrupt MSM and outright racism displayed by Obama is being used to lynch Zimmerman in the court of public opinion. Before long, Zimmerman will be lynched in a court of law because the diversities are demanding it.

    Besides, I cannot help but reflect back upon the brutal murder and rape of an elderly woman last week, committed by a black about the same age as the “victim” in this case. Perhaps Nancy Strait would still be alive today if her neighborhood had someone like Zimmerman looking out for them.

    I don’t think they have any genetic inability to speak properly; listen to several of the (conservative) black commentators on Fox News, for instance, and you probably wouldn’t guess they’re black if you couldn’t see them. It seems to be a badge of (dis)honor among urban blacks to speak in ghetto-ese. If one attempts to speak standard English, he is looked at with suspicion by his henchmen, who will brand him as being “a White-talkin’ dude.”

    • MikeofAges

      The people who post in online forums, whatever their stripe, are people who are well-informed about current events. We know that George Zimmerman man is a person of half Caucasian (Jewish) and half mestizo descent. In the federal government’s racial classification system, he is considered white. Anyone on the street would consider him an Hispanic with an other than Iberian surname. But most people don’t seek as much exposure to events as we do. So they hear he is white, and think he looks like a Bubba. Fortunately, the MSM has by now shown pictures of him and reported the allegation that Trayvon Martin jumped Zimmerman after Zimmerman broke off contact with him. Martin may have been a fairly decent and peaceful kid as some claim. But if he was, and went over the edge, then he made a terrible mistake. I still say, Zimmerman should not have been following him around. The 911 operator told him to go home. The police are trained in experienced in  handling contacts on the street. Considering the numbers, there are few bad outcomes.

      God love your innocense Zadie.  You’re obviously on the site here visiting The Zoo of White Racist Haters.  Why don’t you go to the archives and look up the articles about Prison Rape, or google Prison Rape so you can see for yourself who rules who in prison (due to superior numbers) LOL OMG! 100% serious Sadie, black men RAPED 37,000  white women last year, and white men raped less than 10 black women!  OMG LOL Imagine.  Why are there signs all over Africa that say “Don’t rape! Your woman is your friend!” with cartoons of black men pulling up black woman’s dresses?  It doesn’t sound like you’re a world traveller but you might want to look it up.  Surprising, isn’t it?  And difficult to admit you’ve been had, most of all.

    The boy is DEAD!  How can you argue who the victim of this crime is.  He’s dead!  

    • MikeofAges

      The allegation is that Zimmerman broke off contact with Martin, after which Martin attacked Zimmerman from behind and started beating on him. Agreed, Zimmerman should have left it to police to determine Martin’s purpose in being in the neighborhood, which was legal and innocent. But in the immediate circumstances, Zimmerman was defending himself against someone who seemed intent on inflicting serious bodily injury to him and was in the process of doing so. That, if this story represents the true facts of the case, makes his action self defense. The grand jury will determine if his actions prior to that of their own accord constitute a chargeable crime or represent a form of incitement which would allow a manslaughter or endangerment charge. Sorry, but that is reality.

    However you feel about race relations in the country in general there is no way to argue the facts.  Zimmerman is not white.  This is not a black/white thing.  This is about a poorly constructed law that allowed this man to follow that 17 year old boy and shoot him.  Please don’t forget that he was just walking down the street talking on the phone.  Zimmerman followed HIM!  He hunted him, and he shot him.

      He shot Martin as Martin was attacking him.  Except for the gun Zimmerman was otherwise defenseless against Martin’s potentially fatal attack.  Fists can be lethal.  Additionally from what I’ve read Zimmerman had broken contact and was walking away from Martin when Martin attacked him.

      Yes, but it’s too bad he isn’t asking the POTUS questions about Channon Christian, Chris Newsome, Eve Carson, Mr and Mrs George Strait (85 year old savagely raped and beaten but I guess it’s ok because she was old and soon to die anyway) and all the white people raped and tortured by black scum.  You think you are progressive.  You are so horribly confused.  There is little difference beween Zadie Progressie Indie and a parrot sitting next to MSNBC or CNN or any liberal professor claiming black people are victims of  “a legacy of” fill in the blank racism, jim crow, slavery, etc. ad infinitum, ad nauseum…. you are way behind here.  Read a few independently written blogs for a couple of years then come back and post.

     I’ve asked so many people during my lifetime why they hate African-Americans so much and most often I got “I don’t know…I just do.” For a long time I thought it might be some type of weird sub-conscious guilt but I don’t think that is the case. In the past 3 years I’ve seen how much deflection and especially projection comes from these people and now I think that it is based on fear because so many of the white racists know that if the situations were reversed they would be lusting for revenge…it is very possible that it is beyond their comprehension that not everyone lives for revenge…most just want a decent shot at life and to live that life with security, love and laughter….all three qualities which do not get much respect in the lives of racists.

        These robotic leftists share a lot of responsibility for the dismal state of the underclass by making the subject taboo. Except for a few brave souls, the subject is off-limits in public discourse.

        A forthcoming book will hopefully put another dent in this taboo:

        Publication Date: April 17, 2012

        In the Age of Obama, the ugly charge of racism is more prevalent than ever.
        Why? Because telling the truth about racial profiling, crime, the social fallout
        of single parent homes, and the ways racial preferences distort the very meaning
        of equity and justice would mean facing up to the soul-destroying pathologies of
        urban black culture. Instead, black leaders and their guilty white allies focus
        tirelessly on historic oppression and the supposed need for more government aid,
        and demonize those who challenge their shopworn views as—what
        else?—racist.In No Matter What . . . They’ll Call This Book
        Racist, Harry Stein attacks the rigid prohibitions that have long governed
        the conversation about race, not to offend or shock (though they certainly will)
        but to provoke the serious thinking that liberal enforcers have until now
        rendered impossible. Stein examines the ways in which the regime of racial
        preferences has sown division, corruption, and resentment in this country. He
        pays special attention to the stifling falsehood that it is racism that
        continues to mire millions of underclass blacks in physical and spiritual
        poverty. by far the greater problem, says Stein, is the culture of destructive
        attitudes and behaviors that denies those in its grip the means of escape.

    • MartelC

      Nice strawmen there radical 7.  Your circular reasoning “racists just hate black people’ sounds more like someone thoroughly indoctrinated and completely void of any cognitive reasoning abilities. tha

      I sincerely doubt you’ve read Jared Taylor or any other of the writers here, or stopped for a minute to even consider what they are saying.  That’s understandable. It gets in the way of your rather silly narrative. 

      But as this case shows, your lot rarely lets reality get in the way of your ideology.

    • MissBonnie123

      The reason why many people are cautious around African-Americans is because of the experiences they’ve had with them. Many Whites have been victims of Black crime (which rarely is charged as a hate crime) or have had to put up with their incessant belief that they are chronic victims of discrimination.

      It has nothing to do with projection. It has everything to do with experience.

    Richard Lowry, a conservative columnist for the National Review and New York Post columnist wrote a fantastic columm a few days ago advocating that the justice department review the Trayvon Martin case.

      Lowry is not a conservative. 

      Is this the same INjustice Dept. that refused to charge black racists with using weapons and thug tactics to intimidate white voters at a polling venue, calling them “crackers?”

  • davejon

    Perhaps they are subconsciously trying to recreate their ancestral jungle environment?

  • davejon

    No, generally blacks in the UK have a characteristic tone – a good example is ex boxer Frank Bruno – it might be due to their larger nasal chamber or even the capacity of their mouths. I really don’t know. There’s a black MP who sounds “white” so perhaps the entire phenomenon is cultural (educational) and not racial (physiological). We also now have the imput from Asians (“our” Asians are generally from Pakistan) who have added their curious twist to the English language – a good example being the word “life” which thay pronounce  “laaihhff”. When talking to call centres, we hear this type of pronunciation, but increasingly, whites, mainly young whites, are talking like Negroes. Many are also walking around with their trousers half way down their legs. Incidentally, when I’ve visited Australia, the locals think I’m American (on the basis of my pronunciation)!!

  • davejon

    There’s two interesting cases being reported here in the UK – one regarding Trayvon (black victim) and another very similar where two English tourists (white victims) were shot dead in Florida by black Shawn Tyson. I’m monitoring the relative amount and the tone of the reporting in both cases.

    Indeed. 
    He’s probably going to be subject to a double jepardy judical lynching like the cops who beat Rodney King.
    Sad, but true.

    • http://www.vega.com/ Vega – Poli-Cultural Humorist

      That was not double jeopardy. The cops were charged with violating his civil rights.

      • haroldcrews

        I’m guessing you’re saying that tongue in check.  The trial court as a determinate of fact decided that excessive force was not used in what way were Rodney King’s civil rights violated?

        • http://www.vega.com/ Vega – Poli-Cultural Humorist

          Of course they were, because it was a different charge. One court has little to do with the other, unless it was the same charge. And it wasn’t.

          • haroldcrews

            Then since he was not arrested with excessive force how were Rodney King’s civil rights violated? I’m an attorney licensed in two states and can recognize a legal sham when I see one.

          • http://www.vega.com/ Vega – Poli-Cultural Humorist

            Good for you. Then you should know that the cops were not charged with “excessive force”. They were charged with violating his civil rights, as in pulling him out of the car and beating him.

      • Afrikanerhart1

        Why are you being pedantic, Vega?
        You know exactly what I mean.  The first trial did not come up with the result the government and the volitile black community wanted, so they found another charge they could hang on them instead.    It was a judicial lynching done to head off further civil unrest.  Zimmerman faces the same fate in my opinion.

        • http://www.vega.com/ Vega – Poli-Cultural Humorist

          Those cops should have gone to jail. The trial should have never been moved.

          • http://www.vega.com/ Vega – Poli-Cultural Humorist

            I don’t have any anti-law enforcement bias. I have anti-abusive law enforcement bias. That is, cops that go over the line should either be fired or be in jail.

            That is just your mechanism for shutting me down. Like if I told you the only reason why you are talking your position is because of an anti-black bias.

          • Ingsoc

            Yeah, just like the OJ trial should have never been moved — from a White Santa Monica to downtown LA so a jury that “looked more like OJ” (read black) so the brotha could get a “fair trial” , even though OJ lived in a White area, married White and hung out with Whites and Jews.

          • http://www.vega.com/ Vega – Poli-Cultural Humorist

            I would certainly agree the OJ trial was ridiculous.

    Gated communities and apartment complexes are suppose to be crime-free.   Unfortunately, tenants’ associations and landlords do not have the power to evict anyone for violating their leases because of potential  lawsuits.  Remember, the minorities get endless legal representation by the Legal Aid Society.  All you need is one tenant to bring their hoodlum relatives in and crime goes up.  That was why Zimmerman sounds so frustrated.  A rash of crimes in an expensive gated community shouldn’t be happening.

    • haroldcrews

      I’m going to start recommending to my clients, particularly those who buy multi-unit buildings, to place in their leases that the tenant must agree to pest control measures for insects, rats or etc at owner’s discretion.  I saw a show that featured an apartment building infested with cockroaches.  One tenant, a Hindu, would not allow their apartment to be fumigated so it ruined the building for everyone else.  Failure to allow for the pest control would breach the lease and justify eviction.  Off topic I know just wanted to share.

    I posted this to the original article:

    Most unfair to the Hispanic dude. Are Hispanics expected to absorb by osmosis the racial training that’s given to Whites only, to tuck our tails between our legs in every racial situation? 

    Whites have been trained to accept the flooding of all White countries with non-Whites, and to accept being legally forced to assimilate with those non-Whites and be blended out of existence. 

    Other races haven’t been trained to submit to their own genocide as Whites have been trained, and you can’t expect them to act in the same submissive fashion.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White!

  • MartelC

    I suspect as america becomes more ‘multicultural’ it’s going to be harder and harder for MSM to maintain the whitey is racist out to murder blacks narrative.

    Oh, they’ll keep trying, no doubt, and they will continue to brush aside legtimate newstories about black on white ‘hate’ crimes or the pandemic of black on oriental violence in urban schools which has prompted several lawsuits by Oriental activist groups.

    Soon, the bewildered left will discover, other races will play the pc/race card when it benefits their group – if whites are stupid enough to fall for it,” why not?”, most of them will think – but groups like asian Indians, chinese, mexicans, have pretty much open contempt for blacks and will ignore the NPR White Liberals when it comes to protecting their own races.

    Or he is brought up on some sham federal charges and forced into entering a plea.  The conviction rate (including pleas) in the federal justice (sic) system is 95% or higher.  This can only come about my two ways; under-prosecuting or over-prosecuting.  Under-prosecuting is only indicting when it is an open and shut case.  That is not what happens.  Over-prosecuting is piling on the charges; out spending the defense; with-holding exculpatory evidence; and suborning perjury: such that they have little choice but to plea to a reduced charge.  There are also more hardball options such as going after his family.  Plus in this case would Zimmerman be willing to risk being sent to general population when he could make a deal and stay out of the general population.  The former would for all practical purposes be a death sentence.

     And, Art, my big question is where is their  outrage when they slaughter EACH OTHER at rates that would virtually guarantee a win to a lottery ticket holder? At least 4-5 every week in just Atlanta. No outrage whatsoever as long as they’re killed by their own.  I’m seriously thinking about buying stock in candles. They DO love those candlelight vigils, and I see no sign of those ‘senseless murders’ slowing down at all.

     Kinda, sorta. But look at pictures of Barack Obama and Charles “Sonny” Liston side by side. Obama’s house in the South Kenwood neighborhood of Chicago is very close to where Liston’s house was during the year he lived in Chicago, maybe on the same block. One of the ironies of world history, I guess.

    Obama must get his masculine force by channeling Sonny  Liston. He sure didn’t get it from his dissolute father. Or his milquetoast maternal grandfather.

    “Why would one choose to so passionately support another race and culture and pretty much be indifferent to their own.”

    I wish we could get anywhere close to the answer.  I found (on my own facebook wall) a friend of mine had posted photos of herself and her daughters at the protest of poor Trayvon’s tragic death by the cold blooded White man named Zimmmerman.  We don’t need no stinkin’ jury anymore as it’s no longer the US anyway.  We have newsmedia.) The lady who posted it is called Mary O’Connell and she is white she’s see through, and she loves black “culture” so much that she and  her 2 little daughters moved to Harlem.  It didn’t work out too well so she had to move again.  Anyway, that’s the mentality of the weak minded college educated white.  Last summer I laid a million racist statistics on her to no avail.  These people may be lost, but there are many eager minds who are suspicious of these black innocents and just  need one perusal of AmRen.

    If I recall correctly, the incident you are talking about took place in a predominately Black neighborhood.
