|On a cultural level, they aren't white; to the multicultural eye, conditioned to perceive anything outwardly "white" as oppressive and the engine behind Michael Brown's 'execution', Zemir Begic is white as snow|
A number of rappers joined forces to rhyme the Michael Brown-inspired "Don't Shoot" (the forensic evidence showing Brown tried to steal Officer Darren Wilson's gun obviously inadmissible in the court of black logic/opinion).
Black public school students in metropolitan St. Louis have been fed a constant diet of "white police are out to get you" and "white racism" is behind your pitiful existence. Clergy United for Peace has been conducting workshops in public schools on how black students should deal with the situation in Ferguson, "urge[ing] the teenagers to express themselves in a nonviolent way if the grand jury chooses not to indict Wilson.
The question has become a common one posed to black high school students when the shooting death of Michael Brown is discussed. But the responses aren’t always as predictable.
“How many of you had that thought it could have been me?” said the Rev. Robert White, a St. Louis pastor, to nearly 50 students in the library of East St. Louis High School Thursday.
About 30 hands shot up.
“That’s interesting,” White said. “I see females with their hands up.”
“Tell me,” he said to a girl at a front table. “Why are you saying that could have been you?”
“Because I’m black,” Monecia Hudson, a junior, told him. “It really doesn’t make a difference what gender you are. Police — they don’t care who you are. If they feel you’re doing something wrong they’re going to do whatever they feel.”
In high schools across the St. Louis area — particularly at those with high percentages of African-American students — conversations like this one are exposing levels of vulnerability that black students are feeling three months after Brown’s shooting.
Pastors and educators are concerned. White and other members of Clergy United for Peace, which formed after Brown’s shooting, are going into schools to help educate students about the legal process, including the role of a grand jury. They want young people to talk openly about their fears, frustrations and other feelings, but also be fully aware of the law.
“How many of you think Darren Wilson should be indicted?” asked the Rev. Michael Robinson.
About half the hands went up. Several said they weren’t sure.
Officer Darren Wilson wasn't arrested, nor charged with any crime by the grand jury because he did nothing in confronting Michael Brown or subduing the charging, attacking, violent Gentle Giant.One East St. Louis student asked why a police officer would shoot someone repeatedly. Another asked why police Officer Darren Wilson hasn’t been arrested.
But as this article makes clear, Clergy United for Peace was going around metropolitan St. Louis public schools (particularly those with high black populations) basically telling them they could be next in joining Michael Brown in the afterlife, courtesy of a trigger-happy, racist white cop.
Which brings us to the story of the young blacks wielding hammers mob in St. Louis and their fatal encounter with a white man who just happened to be a Bosnian immigrant. [Fatal hammer attack on Bosnian immigrant not racially motivated, St. Louis police say, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 12-1-14]:
A 17-year-old St. Louis man has been charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the bludgeoning death of a Bosnian immigrant.
Police say Robert Mitchell along with two other teens, both juveniles, attacked the 32-year-old man with hammers early Sunday. He was pronounced dead at a hospital. Mitchell and one of the juveniles are black and the other teen is Hispanic, according to police.
A police spokeswoman said investigators do not believe race played a role in the bludgeoning death of a Bosnian immigrant early Sunday, but declined to say what authorities believe is the motive in the killing.
Many at the scene of the murder near Gravois Avenue and Itaska Street speculated that the four men who beat Zemir Begic, 32, to death with hammers targeted him because of his Bosnian descent.
But detectives do not believe Begic’s Bosnian heritage or the color of his skin served as a motive in any way, police spokeswoman Schron Jackson said.
Witnesses told police that the victim and the suspect exchanged some words as Begic was walking past them on the way to his car, Jackson said.
Someone then hit Begic’s car with something or kicked it, and Begic stopped his car, got out and exchanged words with the suspects once more. That’s when he was attacked, Jackson said.
“We think it was wrong place, wrong time,” Jackson said.
Homicide detectives do not believe the suspects took anything from the victim during the attack.
Jackson said Chief Sam Dotson noted that none of the suspects appear to have anything in their criminal backgrounds to suggest they would do something of this magnitude.
Dotson said more than one hammer was used in the killing, but he would not say how many.
"We think it was wrong place, wrong time..."Police arrested two suspects, ages 15 and 16 Sunday. Mitchell turned himself in to police Sunday night. Detectives believe they know who the fourth suspect is, but have not yet made an arrest, Jackson said.
A possible explanation for the Darren Wilson/Michael Brown encounter; an implausible explanation for a black/brown coalition - injected with lethal doses of "the white man is keeping me down" pep talks from organization like the Clergy United for Peace - encountering a white man and beating him to death as they randomly carried hammers.
They were actively seeking the right place and right time to exact racial revenge for Michael Brown.
And they got racial revenge on Zemir Begic, a man they didn't know was Bosnian, but soon introduced their hammers to because he was white. As Bob McCarty reports:
Conversely, a video shot by a resident of South St. Louis’ Bevo Mill neighborhood reveals heretofore-unpublished details about what happened near the intersection of Gravois Avenue and Itaska Street before the attack that left Zemir Begic, 32, dead.
At the 45-second mark, the woman who recorded the video — whose name I will not share for reasons of her personal safety — says, “And, of course, it’s a white kid, right after black people running up and down the street saying, ‘Eff the white people, kill the white people.’ This is what we have.”Thanks President Obama and Attorney General Holder; thanks Washington Redskins and St. Louis Rams; thanks Clergy United for Peace; thanks CNN, MSNBC, and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for peddling lie after lie after lie in an effort to turn an 18-year-old Swisher Sweet liberating thug into the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Zemir Begic represents the consequences of persisting in living by lies and disseminating a false narrative surrounding the life of anything-but-angelic Michael Brown.
His death, at the hands of black (and a brown) youths, is an indication we are witnessing the Birth of a New Nation; one conceived in the notion Django Unchained offers a worthy glimpse in how one must deal with the white man.
