Glad that some more facts are coming out in the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman fiasco.
He was in the midst of a four-day suspension from school because of possession of drugs, according to the Miami Herald. Another report claims this was his second suspension from as many high schools in as many years.
There are some stories circulating with links that allegedly show Trayvon Martin's "gangsta alias" profiles on MySpace and Twitter and Facebook. Lots of pictures of guns, his tattoos (autopsy report should show conclusively how many--if any--tattoos Martin had) and comments.
If true, Martin was no angel. Sad, because other links to sites hosted by his (alleged) family members show a pretty typical All-American family. Unfortunately, good kids sometimes go bad. Our jails and prisons--and cemeteries--are full of such examples.
But recent reports are also showing something else about the Zimmerman/Martin incident.
It seems that according to witnesses, Zimmerman was getting his butt kicked.
But this changes nothing.
The facts are, and always will be, Zimmerman was in his SUV and had a cell phone and his gun. He was in direct contact with the police. He was in absolutely zero danger.
He chose, willingly, to exit his vehicle and accost Martin. Zimmerman put his own well-being at risk.
Now, for the New Black Panthers who put out a bounty on Zimmerman. . .
I propose a bounty be put on the head of every single active member of the New Black Panthers. And if a member of the black community itself turns one of these racist alpha-hotels in, then I propose the reward be tripled.
Never forget that such groups like the New Black Panthers, the Ku Klux Klowns, Aryan Nazikooks and other race-baiting hate-groups exist to divide--not unite.
And never forget that the mainstream media will always give them attention and coverage if it means or presents the opportunity to cause yet more controversy and division between the races.
People of ALL races are smarter that than. Do not fall prey to the antics of those who make their living by creating, stirring up and feeding hate, division and controversy.
