White Supremacy Acquits George Zimmerman

Aura Bogado, The Nation, July 14, 2013

A jury has found George Zimmerman not guilty of all charges in connection to death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. But while the verdict came as a surprise to some people, it makes perfect sense to others. This verdict is a crystal-clear illustration of the way white supremacy operates in America.

Throughout the trial, the media repeatedly referred to an “all-woman jury” in that Seminole County courtroom, adding that most of them were mothers. That is true—but so is that five of the six jurors were white, and that is profoundly significant for cases like this one. {snip}

In the last few days, Latinos in particular have spoken up again about Zimmerman’s race, and the “white Hispanic” label especially, largely responding to social media users and mass media pundits who employed the term. Watching Zimmerman in the defense seat, his sister in the courtroom, and his mother on the stand, one can’t deny the skin color that informs their experience. They are not white. Yet Zimmerman’s apparent ideology—one that is suspicious of black men in his neighborhood, the “assholes who always get away—” is one that adheres to white supremacy. It was replicated in the courtroom by his defense, whose team tore away at Rachel Jeantel, questioning the young woman as if she was taking a Jim Crow–era literacy test. {snip}

When Zimmerman was acquitted today, it wasn’t because he’s a so-called white Hispanic. He’s not. It’s because he abides by the logic of white supremacy, and was supported by a defense team—and a swath of society—that supports the lingering idea that some black men must occasionally be killed with impunity in order to keep society-at-large safe.

People will take to the streets, and with good reason. They’ll be there because they know that, yes, some people do always get away—and it tends to be those strapped with guns and the logic of white supremacy at their side.

    Jeez, and here I thought it was the facts and the law. Silly me.

    • I was going to bring up that whole silly, antiquated concept of “evidence”, but those notions are apparently also “white”.

      In Africa, Zimmerman would have been summarily necklaced with diesel fuel and an old tire, not for killing Martin in self-defense, but for sorcery.

      • MBlanc46

        Sometimes those direct methods for securing justice seem very appealing. I try to resist their siren song by reminding myself that rule of law is one of the principal things that distinguishes us from them.

        • The last time they had any appeal to me, I fixed it by looking up “death penalty in China” on Wikipedia. Apparently, quite a few innocent people have been executed there after horribly botched “investigations”, tortured confessions and farcical trials. Africa of course is in a class of its own in this respect. By international standards, the legal systems we have in the developed West in general and the US in particular are outstanding.

          • MBlanc46

            We come up short far too often, but at least we have the principle of rule of law. Fortunately, it has obtained in the Zimmerman case.

          • The__Bobster

            The rule of law only applies when Whites are sitting on the juries. The booties have their own version of “justice”, i.e., YT always pays.

          • MBlanc46

            Which is why we need to double down on insisting on due process and equal protection. Alas, too many whites are still in thrall to the integrationist narrative.

  • Eagle_Eyed

    Apparently to the mentally retarded, the long standing common law precedent of “self-defense” translates to “white supremacy.” To them, true justice is not a rational process symbolized by a blindfolded lady but an emotional one where blacks are pure and innocent as they truly are.

    And there is no hope in changing their minds. Better to convince them that, yes, the system is racist and against you, yes blacks should fear roaming gangs of white-Hispanics, and you can only be safe from whites in your own neighborhoods and better yet home countries.

    • John Smith

      The delusional author is refusing to post any comments that don’t align with her false assertions.

    • Blacks consider self-defense to be “white supremacy”, because even they know they’re not completely in control of their own behavior and have the emotional stability typical of white children. They’re also well aware of sky-high black crime rates, ergo any allowance for self-defense will inevitably produce a “disparate impact”.

  • There’s no doubt about it. What they want is for blacks to be totally exempt from criminal law.

  • Creepy as a cracker!

    This reminds me of my kids when they were 2 or 3 years old, if they didn’t get their way they just threw a temper tantrum. This is what we always get from blacks, temper tantrums!

  • Luca

    Even Jesse Jackson is suspicious of black men in his neighborhood. Goot Lowd!,…don’t tell me Jesse went and embraced that White supremacy ideology too!

  • David Ashton

    “Some black men may be occasionally killed with impunity.”
    This will become entrenched as yet another lying leftist legend if the facts do not prevent it.

  • Stan D Mute

    Is homo-africanus with his average 70 IQ functionally incapable of comprehending crime statistics? Is that the reason that they are convinced suspicion of a young black man walking slowly in the rain is “white supremacist” rather than rational, reasonable, and well-informed?

    “Trayvon black, Trayvon dead, cracka shot Trayvon, Ima riot, Ima get me a cracka!” Ignoring that Zimmy was a mestizo who could never pass for “white,” that Trayvon ambushed and sucker punched Zimmy, that Zimmy was on his back getting pounded in the head before he came to his senses and fired his gun *once*.

    The only real problem I have with this, from the standpoint of Zimmy’s actions, is why the hell he fired just one round? Why didn’t he empty the magazine?

    • Jefferson

      Indeed George Zimmerman could never pass for White. Even NAACP Chairman Benjamin Jealous looks Whiter than him. The daughter of Quincy Jones, Rashida Jones looks Whiter than him.

  • KevinPhillipsBong

    And what SHOULD have Mr. Zimmerman done? What would have been the RIGHT thing to do? If a trial by jury = white supremacy, then maybe George should have been given a cigarette and a blindfold and marched into the middle of the nearest group of shrieking, angry black protesters for some “social justice.”

    • The__Bobster

      The neighborhood watch captain should’ve turned tail the instant he spotted the thug and hid in his home. Otherwise he’d be “provoking” the feral child.

  • Spartacus

    “Watching Zimmerman in the defense seat, his sister in the courtroom, and
    his mother on the stand, one can’t deny the skin color that informs

    So a mestizo shooting a black is white supremacy ? Why wouldn’t it be mestizo supremacy ? Or why not common sense – that a group that forms 12% of the total population of the US but is responsible for more than half of all murders, at least a third of all rapes and the list can go on – should NEVER be trusted, under any circumstances.

    God I hate these critters. I don’t know if the person who wrote this is a dark-skin or a white libtard, but I see no difference – Cockroaches, every last one of them, and the US and the whole Western world is long overdue a good fumigation…

    Oh, Aura Bogado. Hispanic AA liblefty ruminator. Phd. in what for this one?
    Boy, the Nation really picks the mental giants don’t it?

  • Bert Sterling

    I always find it amusing when race-realists are called “white supremacists.” Any race-realist knows, accepts, and fully understands that East Asians have higher overall IQs than whites (Europeans), attain higher levels of education, earn more money, have less involvement with crime, and much less involvement with violent crime. By every meter whites score “better” than blacks or Hispanics, Asians score “better” than whites. There is some minor defensive quibbling over creative abilities, but really, a difference in creativity is not among the top-ten reasons why whites and blacks don’t get along. By all the important measures, any race-realist will tell you that Asians are “better” than whites.

    So please, all ye racially-ignorant folks, stop calling me a “white supremacist.” Clearly I am a white “Asian supremacist.” (That is, unless you want to consider the Ashkenazim as a “race,” and then we really get into some deep doo-doo.)

      Is this your sock puppet, Engelman?

      • Bert Sterling

        I am not Engelman.

  • Greg Thomas

    The mental gymnastics the anti-White lunatics have to perform in order to perpetuate their hate against Whites is nothing short of amazing.

    • Truthseeker

      Yep. Everything white people do is “racist,” merely because it was done by white people. How dare they go around being be white, with their disgraceful history of oppression and enslavement!

      Everything white people achieve is because of “white privilege,” because there’s no other possible explanation for how they could achieve so much while many others achieve so little. They must have cooked the books!

      If a half-white person receives a favorable verdict in a trial, it’s because of “white supremacy.” Don’t waste our time with facts and evidence, the dead person was black, and we all know that those blessed black people are as pure as the driven snow and would never do anything to warrant being shot!

      There’s a systematic movement to delegitimize anything that white people do, and this is just the latest campaign propaganda.

  • connorhus

    They were hoping to put Self Defense on trial along with Zimmerman. Had they been found guilty it would have been a sign that Blacks can now rob, rape, assault and murder anyone without the fear of them fighting back.

    They saw their Grail and lost it. Now they are gonna riot and scream racism.

  • din_do_nuffins

    I’m infected by White privilege, so my hateful logic resents Zimmerman’s White half mixing with his Brown half.

    Mongrelism is our demise. At least St. Trayvon was 100% full blooded Nro.

    • Perhaps, but Zimmerman didn’t get to choose, now did he?

      • The__Bobster

        His hard-up daddy did. And he made the wrong choice.

        • I can’t imagine shacking up with something of approximately the attractiveness of Yoda, either. Even the Mestizas and pureblood Indians who start out looking relatively OK tend to pork out after their first kid. We have an old tintype photo of one of my Amerind great-grandmothers, and while not overweight, she looks like Geronimo in drag.

    “White Supremacy Acquits George Zimmerman”

    Another unequivocal example of rabid anti-white hate and racist remarks.

  • Dave4088

    Nothing but pure anti-white, lefty babble. When a racially charged court verdict doesn’t comport with their deranged ideology and warped worldview they twist themselves into all kinds of knots to attribute it to the bogeyman of white supremacy that exists only in their overheated imaginations.
