Need another example? How about the case of George ZimmerWOMAN?
I refuse to call the man who has admitted to killing Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman. Were George Zimmerman a woman who claimed Martin was beating her in February of 2012, then I would buy the claims that Martin had to be fatally shot, in self-defense.
But a man — a REAL man – would have and should have been able to handle a physical confrontation with a 17-year-old boy without shooting him.
You can read between the lines to discern what I’m calling George ZimmerWOMAN. And yes, that word does start with a “b.”
But back to the matter at hand: the cops in Sanford, Fla., immediately after Trayvon Martin’s shooting, proved the axiom that police departments are not “friends of the Negro” organizations.
Investigators pretty much accepted ZimmerWOMAN’S version of events. They conducted a shoddy, scant investigation. They must have figured that a dead black kid and a white guy with a gun told them pretty much everything they needed to know.
ZimmerWOMAN himself is a cop wannabe. And his comments on police tapes the night he murdered Trayvon Martin show that, had he ever joined the police force, he would have fit right in with an organization that was not a “friend of the Negro.”
ZimmerWOMAN concluded that Martin was on drugs. I’m betting he even figured said drug was – you guessed it – marijuana.
At one point, ZimmerWOMAN is heard saying on the police tape “these ***holes always get away.”
In short, ZimmerWOMAN saw a black teen wearing a hoodie and concluded that he was on drugs and up to no good.
That ACLU study shows that American cops routinely look at black folks and conclude that they must be smoking marijuana.
That’s news for white folks; black folks already knew it.
If anybody wants to tell us something we don’t know, tell us this: when will American cops be compelled to end this foolishness?
