Lest We Forget - We live in America!

My words are.... they killed Malcolm, Martin, Medgar Evers, the four little girls in Birmingham AL, They beat Rodney King, they killed Emmit Till and a black boy in Chickasha, and a Black young man via the Tulsa Race Riot.......  
Zimmerman pursued Martin. This is a fact. Martin could have run, I suppose, but every black man knows that unless you're on a field, a track, or a basketball court, running is suspicious and could get you a bullet in the back.

The successful transformation of Zimmerman into the victim of black predatory violence was evident not only in the verdict but in the stunning Orwellian language defense lawyers Mark O'Mara and Don West employed in the post-verdict interview. West was incensed that anyone would have the audacity to even bring the case to trial -- suggesting that no one needs to be held accountable for the killing of an unarmed teenager. When O'Mara was asked if he thought the verdict might have been different if his client had been black, he replied: "Things would have been different for George Zimmerman if he was black for this reason: he would never have been charged with a crime." In other words, black men can go around killing indiscriminately with no fear of prosecution because there are no Civil Rights organizations pressing to hold them accountable.
