Race Relations Are Much Worse Under Obama
By Alicia Colon
If you're a white person who voted for Barack Obama believing that his election would usher in a post-racial era in America, you must be very disappointed. Race relations have in fact never been more volatile and the nation is now sitting on a time bomb as we draw closer to another election. Whose fault is it? Race-baiting demagogues like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are feverishly trying to exploit the recent killing of a young black man in Florida for their own selfish agenda to boost their fading relevance. Typically they have jumped to conclusions before all the actual facts have been uncovered.
They are once again inciting racial violence by calling the killing of a black teenager, Trayvon Martin, a bias crime because the shooter, George Zimmerman, was first purported to be a white man. It turns out Zimmerman is a Hispanic from a biracial family but why let a little thing like the truth stop them from provoking a mob. The New Black Panther party, which has already been protected by Attorney General Eric Holder, has offered a bounty of 10k on Zimmerman's head. Director Spike Lee, ever sensitive to attacks on blacks, re-tweeted the address of the Zimmerman family. Now why would he do that unless he hoped that a vindictive mob would exact payback for young Martin's death?
The liberal media jumped on the bandwagon to help the efforts of these race-exploiters by posting a photo of the young Martin as a bright-eyed youth full of innocence. That photo provided by Martin's family is in stark contrast to the one posted on his Facebook displaying a much tougher demeanor. An eyewitness to the shooting has disputed the media's version and claims that the victim had actually attacked Zimmerman and this account was the reason police did not make an arrest. Since I was not there, prudence would dictate I pause before drawing a conclusion and await all the determining facts but that is not how Sharpton and Jackson operate.
Rallies are erupting all over the country as youths seeking a cause to prove their relevance in life join to condemn an injustice that may not exist. Who profits from the t-shirt sales and other merchandise eulogizing the martyred black man? Follow the money is never the action taken by those determined to, as Rahm Emmanuel once intoned, "Never let a crisis go to waste."
The 2008 election should have forewarned us about the thuggery that was to follow when the Black Panthers were allowed to intimidate white voters at a polling site. The intelligent and fair minded members of the black communities are appalled at what has occurred since Obama took office and appointed Eric Holder as Attorney General and general apologist for his errors in judgment. Kevin Jackson just wrote in his Black Sphere blog, "Obama and the Left are taking the Trayvon Martin story and making it about racism, gun control, and INTOLERANCE, while ignoring the THOUSANDS of tragedies that happen every day around this country.
"Hyper-sensitive race activists never become outraged by scenes of black on white crimes which somehow never get the attention of the media yet go viral on YouTube. A plethora of racial anarchic events by black thugs are routinely occurring but will not be evident in mainstream media reports.
"The latest report of hate crimes by blacks occurred recently in Kansas City where a 13-year old was doused with gasoline and lit on fire by two teenagers who said, "This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy.'"
Last August, WTMJ reported, "According to witnesses, a group of anywhere from 30 to 100 young black men descended on the Wisconsin State Fair last night, beating fairgoers and looting carnival games, in what witnesses said were racially-motivated attacks." One eyewitness Eric, an Iraq war veteran, recalled, "I had a black couple on my right side, and these black kids were running in between all the cars, and they were pounding on my doors and trying to open up doors on my car, and they didn't do one thing to this black couple that was in this car next to us. They just kept walking right past their car. They were looking in everybody's windshield as they were running by, seeing who was white and who was black. Guarantee it."
In Texas, Barry Crawford, a black man, shot and killed a white man, Steven Hardin, over a parking dispute. He was found guilty but the jury sentenced Crawford to 10 years adjudication, a form of probation-for murder. There have been no rallies for this injustice.
Whites are not the only target of black thugs as reported by CBS local news in Georgia. Davis Do, an Asian American, endured a tremendous beating by a group of young Negros. Some of the assailants were college football players. The attack happened in McDonough, Georgia, at a bar. The victim said that they put his body under a car, thinking that he was dead.
Anti-Semitic incidents are also disregarded especially if found to be committed by Muslims who for some reason (cowardice?) are treated with kid gloves by the global press. In Toulouse, France, the brutal murder of a rabbi and three children was at first leaked as the work of Neo-Nazis but was in fact committed by a young jihadist.
The New York Times, the Washington Post and other mainstream media outlets will cover the Trayvon Martin killing ad nauseum as will the television networks ignoring other bias crimes. I watched a CNN report interviewing other blacks in the city who retold their own horror stories with the Sandford, Florida, police department but this TV spot did not give the police an opportunity to dispute these narratives. Fair and balanced? I think not!
Murders against women condoned by sharia law fail to raise the outrage by feminist groups and again will only be exposed on conservative sites on the Web or talk radio. We are living in a time where propaganda of the liberal point of view trumps all and while the truth is out there, it's nonexistent in the mainstream media.
On March 1st, Andrew Breitbart, passed away at the age of 43 and a great warrior of the truth was lost to America. This man established the Big sites to expose the lies of politicians and public figures and ferret out the truth backed by videos and iron clad documentation. I feel very proud to be a contributor at several of the Breitbart sites.
While Andrew may have passed on his legacy is the continuing vetting of Barack Obama that the media failed to do and the resulting stream of facts about his congenital socialist core that are emerging from his successors are mind-boggling.
Unless one has access to the Internet where all one has to do is log on to YouTube and search for bias incidents committed against whites, one might believe Jesse Jackson when he says that only blacks are being attacked.
No wonder liberals are determined to shut down free speech on the airwaves and the Net.
Want the truth? It's out there but can you handle it?
