Media Fall for Hoax Racism at Pro-Zimmerman Rally

Brandon Darby, Breitbart, July 23, 2013

Sunday’s “Justice-For-Trayvon” march held by the New Black Panther Party was attended by a woman holding a sign reading: “Racist and Proud.” Several media outlets incorrectly identified the woman as a “George Zimmerman supporter,” and the story took off, providing the left with supposed evidence of racism among those who believe Zimmerman was not guilty. However, an interview with Breitbart News at the Houston rally itself proved that she was an anti-Zimmerman demonstrator attempting to use sarcasm to prove her point.

The Houston Chronicle’s Jayme Fraser wrote of the woman pictured above: “At one point, Renee Vaughan of Austin mocked protesters by chanting, “We’re racist. We’re proud. We’re better ’cause we’re white.” {snip}

The New York Daily News’ Philip Caulfield used the following caption for the above photo, from the Associated Press: “A George Zimmerman supporter holds a sign during a counter-demonstration of activist Quanell X’s group march in the River Oaks community in Houston on Sunday.” He also wrote: “One woman in the Zimmerman group held a sign that said, ‘We’re racist & proud,'” distorting the Chronicle story significantly.

The UK Daily Mail repeated the error, reporting that the sign was held by members of the pro-Zimmerman group in Houston, portraying it as a form of racist backlash against the New Black Panther Party march.


I was present in Houston and personally saw the woman holding the sign. She was attending the event with a fellow anti-Zimmerman demonstrator who was wearing a hoodie. I interviewed her and took this footage:

Breitbart News: What does your sign mean?

Woman: This sign means that there are people here who are racist and apparently think that’s OK. I’m not one of them. I’m being sarcastic.

Breitbart News: OK.

Fellow anti-Zimmerman Protestor: Yo. What she said.

Not only was the woman at the event to support the New Black Panther/Trayvon Martin march, but she is also, according to Gateway Pundit and others, a very involved left-of-center activist from Austin, Texas.

  • I saw this on Drudge. I would looove to hear this woman defend herself.
    I would like it even more if the GOP would use her as a prime example of what mentally ill liberals are capable of.

    In other news, a burning swastika was found in Los Angeles. I wonder… if…
    NAH! It couldn’t possibly be a supporter of the Democratic Party! Could it?

      Unlike conservative, ‘progressive’ liberals look after their wounded.

      Had a conservative been caught doing something like this, there would be massive pressure from the ‘progressive’ left and media that a representative of the conservative movement would be forced to publicly denounced her and shunned her. Is anyone on the left being asked to denounce her or distance themselves from her?

      Ms. Vaughan will likely continue on in her life with little disruption In fact, in ‘progressive’ liberal circles, she’ll be praised as a hero.

      • YngveKlezmer

        You are right on the money. They will hold her up as a hero, and try to claim that She is a valiant warrior against racism, the thing they think is most evil. Why these lefties are so intent on giving the Negroids unfair advantage is beyond me. Some of them actually want to exterminate the White race. They want to see every White woman out there miscegenate, and every child be bi-racial. In their warped minds, they think that this is the answer to the “racism” that they are so convinced is the root of all evil. They speak of miscegenation in terms of everyone eventually being coffee colored, as if skin color is that important an issue. How they can fail to see that Negro behavior and temperament is the most important problem with the Negro is beyond me.

    I can’t help but hope she was wrongly identified as a “White racist” and pummeled into an unrecognizable person. Seeing she interviewed afterwards, I can only assume that didn’t happen. Too bad, though a hard-core brainwashed liberal like her would simply feel bad for the brothas that kicked her face in.

  • Oil Can Harry

    Typical leftist dirty tricks.

    When Rand Paul ran for the Senate in 2010 a Democratic Party activist named Tyler Collins appeared at a Paul rally chanting “racist” slogans in order to discredit Paul.

  • Spartacus

    Just another worthless race-traitor, if the dark-skins she associates with don’t kill her, than she’ll still get what she deserves when our people start fighting back.

    By the way, anybody noticed they’re still portraying Zimmerman as WHITE ?

  • sbuffalonative

    The media didn’t fail for this. They actively went looking for it. They walked past everyone and found the image they expected and wanted.

    They’re the ones who created and now perpetuate the myth of the white ‘racist’. They do it for every shooting and bombing.

    Some real investigative journalist might want to look into Renee Vaughan and see if she had any contact with the media before this became news.

    • Stentorian_Commentator

      Good point. So many of the fairy tales of the American left have originated from carefully choreographed situations to gain publicity. For example, the whole Rosa Parks fiasco and the mischaracterization of the rules of the Montgomery bus system (I bet those buses are still segregated today, if the buses still run, just that white people dare not get on any of the buses).

  • Luca

    Just like the phony negros who have to write “ni66er”on their garage doors or hang up phony nooses. Since there is such a lack of genuine racism these days the agitators have to go around and plant the evidence to create a headline with their media conspirators.

    • When the best poster boy they can come up with for White privilege in the criminal justice system is an Afro-Peruvian, I think you may be right.
      It’s wrong that facts alone aren’t enough to stop these agitators, but instead they choose to remain willfully ignorant.

  • bigone4u

    Professional lefty demonstrator. Vaughan was probably at the capitol in Austin screaming “Hail Satan” along with the rest of the pro-abortion supporters last week. It would be interesting to follow up on her and see what kind of looney-toon causes she supports and what meds she takes.

    • Haldol, Thorazine and Xanax would be good guesses to start with. She probably also has at least 25 cats.

  • Puggg

    Conservatives are being too cute by half by trying to disavow “racism.” All this proves is that regular conservatives are too cowered by the r-word.

    • evilsandmich

      Yeah I was trying to figure out what the big deal was “even if”. On one side is the BlacKKK Panthers but they were panicked about one ‘racist’ sign on the other side? (I’m not even sure what would be racist about it, it’s not like it said anything nasty about black people on it).

      • YngveKlezmer

        Exactly. One sign supposedly standing up boldly for White Pride, and this huge furor. In a logical society, the presence of those BlaCKK panthers should be the largest concern, with their history of violence and hate speech. This is in the same ilk as these Libtards falsely assuming that Zimmermann uttered some racial slur at Martin before Martin commenced his assault, and actually believing that such words would have made it okay for Martin to physically assault Zimmermann, while taking zero umbrage at the Cracker comments between Martin and his tribal Negress pal.

    • DiversityIsDeath

      Some conservatives really are anti-racist. They genuinely believe racism is a moral sin. This type of conservative prides himself on judging individuals on the content of their character, and reveres MLK as some sort of big hero. This type believes they are being noble and fair and are above reproach.

  • The Final Solution

    “We’re racist. We’re proud. We’re better ’cause we’re white.” Makes sense to me.

    • Non Humans

      That’s what I was thinking. All of the evidence supports that statement.

    • YngveKlezmer

      Our race is superior, no doubt, but it is when we choose to exercise our birthright, and live out our European moral values and engage in European culture that our superiority to the Negro is obvious for all to see. The Negroes love to pretend that racial realists are judging their skin color, when we are actually recoiling at their behaviors. MLK wanted us to judge Negroes by the content of their character. Ironically, that is exactly what racial realists do, and why we recoil when we see a Negro coming. Wiggers, like this idiot who held this sign, are committing racial suicide. They are taking a steamy, smelly dump all over their birthright by worshiping the Negro. This wigger slut probably miscegenates nightly with a Negroid, and thinks, in her warped mind, that She is fighting racism by doing this.

  • The Final Solution

    Reminds me of a certain scene in Die Hard 3 with Bruce Willis. I prefer his sign.

  • Fellow anti-Zimmerman Protestor: Yo. What she said.

    Translation: I will agree with anything, I going to try to sleep with this white woman.

  • e2657383

    These things are always hoaxes.

  • Non Humans

    Not only was the woman at the event to support the New Black Panther/Trayvon Martin march, but she is also:Very Stoopid!

    ^ Fixxed ^

    • Stentorian_Commentator

      She retarted.

  • At the next rally she should hold a sign saying “kill all white people now!”

    Of course I’m sure the crowd will understand her sarcasm and leave her alone as they’ll identify her as one of the “good whites”.

  • George

    ‘We’re racist. We’re proud. We’re better ’cause we’re white’ doesn’t really scan.
    ‘We’re racist. We’re bright. We’re better ’cause we’re white’, on the other hand, does.

    And, when questioned by the media, one that then point out the differences in black/white median IQ scores (85 vs. 100). This opens the door to all manner of lovely sidebars: affirmative action, the failure of Head Start, illegitimacy rates, academic underachievement & performance gaps, etc.
    The chant alone indicates she’s a fraud. A true nationalist would get it right.

  • IKantunderstand

    Dang! And here I was giving this broad all kinds of props. Should have known none of us would have had the balls to do this.

  • Jack Burton

    She’s about average, she just needs to wear makeup and dress better. Her problem is she’s just a stupid bitch.

  • WR_the_realist

    Any white person who marches in solidarity with the white hating New Black Panthers is completely beyond redemption. I can only hope for the sake of the race that that woman is infertile.

    • Romulus

      I hope the NBPP cuts her thumper out with a spoon!!! If i digress now and again ,its because im fed up with these retards who know not the basics of anthropology,genetics,evolutionary biology and lack even a cursory knowledge of empirical history.

    • YngveKlezmer

      Beyond redemption is right!! She is probably mudsharking it at this very moment with one of the Groids who was standing near her, thinking that this is somehow fighting racism.

  • John Smith

    Right because anyone who disagrees with her must therefore be a racist. *rolls eyes*. The modern liberal indoctrination system brainwashes and churns these people out by the millions each June.

    • “If that’s not bad enough, they negligently omit teaching them how to earn a living.”

      If that’s not bad enough, they deliberately omit teaching them how to earn a living.”

      Fixed it.

  • David Ashton

    Irony is lost on the simple minded.

  • YngveKlezmer

    She is a sleaze. The groid standing next to her is probably her “baby daddy”, and She is probably miscegenating with him on a daily basis, eager to give birth to another anti-White Mulatto. In her 2 digit IQ mind, She probably thinks that She is the best person on this earth, because She is “fighting racism”, and probably thinks that racism in the gravest sin humanly possible. She probably hasn’t a clue where her ancestors came from, and probably believes every anti-White lie perpetrated by Obama, and the rest of the Negroid race hustlers.

  • YngveKlezmer

    Exactly. They are certainly in for a shock when most of us racial realists come out of hiding. They will see the most intelligent, morally cautious, cultured, and introspective members of the greatest race that has ever walked this earth turning our backs on everyone else, as we secure our White homeland. We will turn our backs on the hopeless Libtards from our race, and rebuild and reinvigorate European culture in a White, racially pure homeland.
