The verdict is in, George Zimmerman is acquitted of all charges.
I will not be commenting on the verdict, it is too much of a polarizing matter, and I haven’t been following the case. What I do want to point out is the Arabization of US media, in the sense that they used Martin as a pin-up, while all around scores of teen-aged African-Americans were being killed day and night.
Nearly half of the nation’s murder victims in 2005 were black, and the number of black men who were slain is on the rise.
A majority of the black murder victims were relatively young — between 17 and 29, the Justice Department said in a study released Thursday.
The department’s Bureau of Justice Statistics report offers a snapshot of racial disparities among violent crime victims. Black people represented an estimated 13 percent of the U.S. population in 2005, the latest data available, but were the victims of 49 percent of all murders and 15 percent of rapes, assaults and other nonfatal violent crimes nationwide.
Most of the black murder victims — 93 percent — were killed by other black people, the study found. About 85 percent of white victims were slain by other white people.
There are, on average, 7,000 African-Americans murdered each year by other African-Americans. To put it mildly, between Zimmerman’s arrest in February 2012, and his acquittal 18 months later, there have been roughly 10,000 African-Americans murdered. One has to ask, how many of those were the same age as Trayvon Martin.
Did the US media report on anyone of these? Probably. Was it heavily publicised as in this case? No. Were any of them brutal, tragic, and deserving of wide publicity? Probably.
You see, as in the Arab world, killing your own is permissible by the media’s standards. It’s only a problem when someone else does it. 100,000 people died in Syria in the past two years, yet one Israeli air-strike gains more media attention than all of them.
Similar to the Israel – Arab case, the media is overwhelmingly one-sided, has a pre-existing bias, claimed Zimmerman is guilty before the trial even begun, and cries fouls once the jury reached its decision that goes against their perceived notion of justice. Does the Palmer Report ring a bell?
Furthermore, on Twitter, a platform known for deniable statements, there are a mounting number journalists who’ve crossed the line from reporting the story, to taking sides. Once again, the resemblance to the Israel – Arab scenario is uncanny.
As for Zimmerman, well, some have made him a Jew, and therefore his acquittal is part of the world-wide Jewish conspiracy.
You have an all-white jury, that’s supposed to be illegal. You’re supposed to have a jury of your peers. Were there any peers on that jury that remind you or remotely look like Trayvon Martin? This was a sham from the beginning. Zimmerman is of Jewish decent.
Did I mention Arabization?
“…because unless we do this, white Americans and other will feel that this was a justifiable verdict, that this is how things happen. Not until, and unless, the number of white kids die that approximate the numbers of black and other kids who die, will America see…”
Back in 2009, some “Human Rights” organizations were lamenting the disproportional death toll between Israel and Palestinians in the Gaza strip. NGO monitor has a sample:
In sharp contrast to these clear rules, many NGOs falsely labeled Israeli operations as “disproportionate,” coupling their pseudo-legal charges with emotive “testimonies” and anecdotes from Gaza. They highlighted the number of Palestinian casualties, especially children, as compared to Israeli victims, even though, as stated by law professors Laurie Blank and Gregory Gordon, proportionality is not “measured after the fact by looking at actual civilian casualties or actual military advantages.”
The Arabization continues in the false pretext that conflicts are equal. Claiming, as MSNBC’s Dyson is, that equalizing the death toll will bring about “justice”, is one of the sickest, most repugnant demands ever.
