Unless you have been living in a cave for the last month you will have heard the name Trayvon Martin. Trayvon is the youth who was shot and killed in Florida by a neighbor hood watch individual, George Zimmerman.When Zimmerman was not arrested or even charged with a crime, the story took on a life of its own and went national.

by media outlets. Until recently the
majority of them used the top 2 photos.
However, that does not mean I have nothing to say about the events surrounding this case. The events I refer to have nothing whatsoever to do with the actual case itself, but everything to do with how the case is being exploited by many for their own benefit.
They say that 'justice is blind", and I believe for the most part in today's world it is. However, as I have stated before there are savvy individuals out there that "never let a good crisis go to waste" in the interest of self promotion. The Martin shooting was the ideal opportunity for the Race Hustlers to rally around and get in front of the cameras, (their real mission in life). Oh, did I neglect to mention that Trayvon Martin was African American and George Zimmerman is Hispanic with a Jewish sounding surname which apparently that makes him as white as Wonder bread in the eyes of the Race Hustlers. In fact the media has taken to referring to Zimmerman as a "white Hispanic" (that's a new one for me) due to his mixed heritage. Interesting, would this make President Obama a "white African American"?

Here's a classic from another Congressman, Corrine Brown who
states that she cares about all young people, Black or White.
You be the judge of her sincerity
While it's bad enough that an elected members of Congress are making statements like this, it doesn't stop there, it goes right up the steps to the White House. "De Man" himself President Obummer chimed in on this one with a personal message delivered from the White House, the US president likened Trayvon Martin to his own children, and said: "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon". Now folks, accuse me of being a cynic if you want, but that comment is almost too ludicrous for even me to comment on.
Obama vowed that authorities would look into "every aspect" of the shooting of the unarmed 17-year-old by neighbourhood watchman George Zimmerman, and called on federal, state and local authorities to work together as part of the investigation. Doesn't this guy have a country to run, or does he plan to intervene in every local shooting investigation? Oops, almost forgot, he is too busy campaigning for re-election.
Now what makes this so disgusting is that young black men (pardon my use of the word black, its easier to write than African American) die every day in America and none of these people generally give a damn. In fact, the administration defends the very type of thugs (rappers) that promote violence in the communities where a young black man is likely to meet his demise. But violence against blacks isn’t the issue with these people, particularly when it is black on black.The real issue for these folks is fueling the fires of racial strife so that they can elevate their own level of importance in the battle against it.
Now to be fair about this I do have something positive to say about Al Sharpton, he certainly can be a wordsmith when he sets his mind to it. Here's a great example of him at his best, and where he is intentionally (versus the humor we generally find in what comes out of his mouth) trying to make all of us laugh.
On last note, amongst this insanity I will leave you with a clip of an interview from a man whose beliefs echo those of many of us (to varying degrees), the great Ted Nugent. “The only time a black life matters to Al Sharpton is when a black person is killed by maybe – not a Hispanic, but a white Hispanic. You and I couldn’t make this stuff up,” Nugent thundered in recent remarks regarding the Martin case on the Mike Broomhead show. As well I am a fan of the man's music, so here you go the musings of Ted Nugent.
