|Perhaps the moon landing was a hoax... why else would we believe the idea of racial equality|
A white man.
On this same day, black people across America were upset that the billions spent on the Apollo Mission by NASA weren't being spent on their community -- to alleviate poverty (of their own creation) and uplift a people no amount can uplift.
No amount of money.
Today, on the eve of an anniversary that should have heralded the dawning of the Space Age, we witness the culmination of the Age of White Guilt. [Obama: 'Trayvon Could Have Been Me', Breitbart.com, July 19, 2013]:
Speaking at the White House on Friday morning, President Obama addressed the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial for the killing of Trayvon Martin for the first time since 2012, when he declared that if he had a son, he’d look like Martin. This time, Obama said, “Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.”
Obama also said, “Reasonable doubt was relevant, and they rendered a verdict. Once the jury's spoken, that's how our system works.”
Obama said he was "bouncing around" ideas with his staff on how to respond to the Zimmerman verdict, adding, "I think it is going to be important for us to do some soul searching." Pushing against Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law, Obama stated, "If Trayvon Martin was of his age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk?"It was 1978 in President Obama's hypothetical thought-experiment.
We already know the Department of Justice (DoJ) has decided to pursue another civil rights investigation -- from this point forward, any time a black person is wronged, a civil rights investigation must be initiated -- in the story George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin.
We already know Eric "My People" Holder went to the NAACP Convention in Orlando and said this:
Even as this convention proceeds, we are all mindful of the tragic and unnecessary shooting death of Trayvon Martin last year – in Sanford, just a short distance from here – and the state trial that reached its conclusion on Saturday evening. Today, I’d like to join President Obama in urging all Americans to recognize that – as he said – we are a nation of laws, and the jury has spoken. I know the NAACP and its members are deeply, and rightly, concerned about this case – as passionate civil rights leaders, as engaged citizens, and – most of all – as parents. This afternoon, I want to assure you of two things: I am concerned about this case and as we confirmed last spring, the Justice Department has an open investigation into it. While that inquiry is ongoing, I can promise that the Department of Justice will consider all available information before determining what action to take.
Independent of the legal determination that will be made, I believe this tragedy provides yet another opportunity for our nation to speak honestly – and openly – about the complicated and emotionally-charged issues that this case has raised.
This issue isn't complicated (an aversion to the facts of the case highlight the pro-Travyon crowd) and it's only emotionally-charged because of the fierce tribalism black people have displayed to St. Travyon Martin, the Duke of Skittles and Earl of Arizona Watermelon Juice.
Quite simply, white America owes black America nothing.
And black America must continue to feel aggrieved over every possible slight - real, or most of the time, amplified to an unnecessary decibel - for Organized Blackness operates under the mindset it is still 1963 Birmingham across the USA.
Never mind that almost all homicides involving a black victim also involve a black suspect.
But here's the ultimate slip President Obama made in his speech today:
"If a white male teen would have been involved in this scenario," he said, "both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different."
