That’s right – I said Hispanic. The alleged killer of 17 year old Trayvon Martin in Florida has initiated a barrage of media coverage attempting to portray America as a still terribly racist nation. What these same media reports fail to state time and time again though is that the shooter, George Zimmerman, is Hispanic.
With the last name of Zimmerman, more commonly associated with someone of Jewish origin, the false portrayal of the Martin shooting as evidence of a racially motivated crime is more easily made. And yet, it is George Zimmerman’s own father who told reporters his son was a Hispanic man and former alter boy. Media personalities and Democratic politicians have charged Florida law enforcement with alleged racism as well for not arresting Mr. Zimmerman for the shooting. Hmmm…racism for not arresting a minority? Really?
As for George Zimmerman, he certainly may be racist against Blacks. His being Hispanic should not dismiss him from that possibility. The fact is though, that the vast majority of news coverage of the shooting is neglecting to indicate Zimmerman’s Hispanic heritage. That omission is a purposeful misrepresentation by the media in a clear attempt to have Americans believe George Zimmerman is white. Some media reports even went so far as to incorrectly state that Zimmerman was in fact white.
It is clear that the entire episode is being facilitated as a means of once again shaming American voters prior to the November 2012 Election. For of course, a vote against Obama is a vote for racism – right?
Oh – and by the way. If all of the Al Sharptons of the world were actually motivated by truth, they would openly condemn the far more common Black on White violence that takes place in America. That isn’t just my view – it also happens to be the view of Black commentator Larry Elders.
Watch the following video that depicts some of the most violent and brutal crimes against Whites. There was little to no national media coverage of these crimes – and certainly not Democratic politicians crying out against the loss of life at the hands of Black criminals:
