The U.S. Dept. of Justice announced today that there would be no civil rights charges filed against George Zimmerman who was acquitted of criminal charges for shooting and killing Trayvon Martin- or as blacks have treated him, St. Trayvon of The Blessed Hoodie.
It took three years to come to this decision and close this case. The fact that no charges will be filed is of no surprise to anyone who dispassionately read and engaged the evidence presented at trial.
A statement released by Eric Holder said, “Though a comprehensive investigation found that the high standard for a federal hate crime prosecution cannot be met under the circumstances here, this young man’s premature death necessitates that we continue the dialogue and be unafraid of confronting the issues and tensions his passing brought to the surface. We, as a nation, must take concrete steps to ensure that such incidents do not occur in the future.”
“Continue the dialogue.”
I’ve said this before but it bears repeating. Eric Holder, Barack Obama and every proud member of the black and racial grievance industries want nothing to do with a serious dialogue regarding race or black criminality and the criminal justice system. There are some very uncomfortable truths regarding the abdication of black responsibility in regards to black conduct that most blacks consciously would rather not to hear. What Eric Holder- and by extension, the grievance industries- means by “dialogue” is the one-sided, unproductive, resentment creating and nurturing lectures that disproportionately blame whites for racism while manipulating white guilt to obtain socio-economic concessions under the guise of social and economic justice. There’s much more political capital and it’s much easier to continually cry racism than doing the hard work of rehabilitating and redeeming black lives.
The reactions to the Dept. of Justice’s decision highlights the low opinion people have of black people, brought on by the disruptive and disreputable behavior of black people which is too often justified and excused by black people. Everywhere the story is posted, regardless of political affiliations and biases, people are asking when the looting, riots, “protests” and “demonstrations” will commence. Whether these questions are sarcastically rhetorical or (partially) serious in nature, however few- it all points to the same reality. Blacks have conditioned themselves that a proper and acceptable response to not getting their way is to throw public, destructive tempter tantrums, which at the same time has conditioned the public to expect such lowbrow, vulgar behavior.
It’s extremely disheartening and demoralizing to those of us who know blacks can do and be better.
Ehh, why bother. The more time goes on the more I realize that fewer and fewer blacks care, regardless of how childish and self-destructive they appear to the wider world. Most blacks appear to be very content with taking for granted and forfeiting numerous opportunities to prove their moral and cultural legitimacy. Worse still are those blacks that recognize the repugnant, stigma-laden attitudes and behaviors but choose to remain silent out of some misguided and embarrassingly naïve sense of racial solidarity because of the consequences of being labeled or associated with a so-called sell-out.
The irony is that those who engage in disgraceful and unsympathetic behaviors and those who passively excuse them by not vociferously speaking out to condemn and reject them are the real sellouts. They’re selling out members of their race in the course of racial solidarity.
Isn’t that something? Doggone shame.
