Race Issues or Race Baiting?

On December 14th 2013 the National Black Caucus of State Legislators had their Annual Legislative conference discussing the Civil Rights Agenda.

Definitely a mouthful. A forum to discuss Civil Rights and again they thrust the Trayvon Martin foundation to the podium where it seems, that amongst (some of the minority population) at least the NAACP and associates will not let this issue in the Zimmerman case….. die its natural death.

The Black Grievance Industry are determined not to let their cause célèbre go without a fight.

The discussion in part discussed why some of their protests fall on deaf ears after the initial furor has died down. Why their is no subsequent support from all segments of the community to prevail in some campaigns.

The particular case of Trayvon Martin is perhaps the least likely to succeed with the majority of the the population for many reasons, least of all the public disclosure of the offensive and underhand way that the BGI chose to single out and manipulate an overly liberal media with distortions.

That, in itself has made the criticism of any black event a racial issue (rather than an observation) to the extent that for fear of media suicide, it becomes so much easier, and safer to simply not comment or support as a safe route.

The term ‘Black Grievance Industry’ was first coined by Treepers on the Conservative Tree House who’s reporters (Treepers) were quick to notice that support from certain black Civil Rights advocates that make their daily bread out of actively creating an issue that has its nuclease in race, bringing it to the forefront whether it be true or not, using it to facilitate support and donations which in turn find their way back to the BGI.

This industry appears to do more by driving a wedge into a common link for people in general when discussing social issues such as gun law and civil rights by manipulating the media.  The public have finally understood their bias, and, are much more aware of their motives, and when you cry wolf, it is sometimes so hard to be heard subsequently.

The American Thinker says of the new book by Jack Cashill:-

“The definitive account of the conspiracy to send George Zimmerman to prison for the self-defense shooting of Trayvon Martin”

The BGI had a vested interest in the prosecution of George Zimmerman that went above and beyond that of putting a wrong to right. Its very existence and, the extravagance of the players that demands that the event needs to be kept in the front of any campaign because of its ability to produce returns far in excess of all contributions that other issues may demonstrate.

National Black Caucus of State Legislators need to look no further than events such as this to see why they do not get support from all walks of the communities, white as well as black, to support their views.

A white person does not feel connected if support is required for a ‘National Black Caucus’ as, ‘black’ is not demonstrative of people in general, and when examining SYG, or gun control, the black community is responsible for the majority of violence (when they reflect such a small percentage of the population) and appear not to be prepared to step up to the plate when getting their house in order.

In order to gain support you need to have common ground or interest in an event which, when deemed a black, white or sky blue pink event, automatically disconnects those that that are not part of that group. No matter how worthy of support, to disconnect those that might otherwise be supportive has to be non productive.

In any event the Zimmerman trial was held with the blessing of the BGI, and the jurors selected were also sanctioned by the BGI only to get a verdict (on the basis of evidence) that was not to their liking, and have subsequently denounced the verdict the judge, the jurors and just about anyone else that agrees with the methods of American Justice.

It is simply not reasonable to demand an arrest, a trial, and a public whipping, only to disagree with a verdict especially when evidence is manipulated, withheld and distorted by the prosecution to the degree of criminality to appease the BGI.  Such is the power of the BGI in the USA today.

The obvious tack if you want results as a caucus of any sort, don’t make it a black issue, make it an our issue. But crying wolf with the Martin case will not endear the support of people in general.

And the BGI? is it Race Issues, or Race Baiting?

Zimmerman prosecutor Angela Corey now under state investigation

She is accused of illegally firing her information technology director, Ben Kruidbos, because of his testimony in the Zimmerman case.

OCALA, Fla., September 17, 2013 — George Zimmerman’s highly controversial prosecutor,  Angela Corey, is now under state investigation for firing Ben Kruidbos, the Jacksonville Times-Union reports.

“Kruidbos received a letter from the Florida Commission on Ethics earlier this week saying the investigation was occurring,” the T-U’s Larry Hannan wrote last week. “Investigator Specialist Kathleen Mann, who sent the letter, declined to comment on the investigation when contacted by the Times-Union on Friday.”

Kruidbos was the information technology director in Corey’s office until earlier this summer.

“Mr. Kruidbos was the victim of retaliatory action by the SAO … when he was terminated from employment,” his attorney, Wesley White, claimed in a formal complaint with the Florida Human Relations Commission.

The medical examiner who testified in the George Zimmerman trial says his office, state prosecutors and police had no interest in convicting the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin and set him up to take the blame for a failed prosecution. (Updated with new remarks from The Sanford, FL police department.)

Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter July 14th. The then neighborhood watch volunteer said he shot the unarmed Miami teen in self-defense.

Sherman Ware

In order to understand how horribly obvious was the creation of this false racism, including lies by omission, you must (re)familarize yourself with the former Sanford Florida case of a black homeless man named Sherman Ware. Ware was beaten by 21-year-old Justin Collison, outside a local Sanford Bar on December 4th, 2010:

Collison was captured on a YouTube video leaving a Sanford bar Dec. 4, walking up behind an unsuspecting Ware and punching him in the back of the head. That drove Ware’s face into a utility pole, and he then hit the pavement.

He was taken to a Sanford hospital, where he was treated for a broken nose.

Sanford police questioned Collison that night and had possession of the video but did not arrest him. He was arrested one month later after news organizations began airing the video. – Orlando Sentinel

Justin Collison’s father is a Sanford police lieutenant and his grandfather is former Circuit Judge Kenneth Leffler, one of several heirs to a land fortune in Volusia County. Collison was not arrested on the night of the beating. The non-arrest created a considerable stir in the community as it was perceived he was given favorable treatment due to his father’s status within the police department, and his powerful family connections.

The publicity surrounding the beating of Sherman Ware, and the cries for justice, were driven by the Seminole County NAACP, and by the actions of George Zimmerman himself. Zimmerman was personally involved in attending multiple small group community meetings, and organized the black community to rally behind Ware and seek justice.

(Daily Caller) Every Sunday, Zimmerman would stroll through Sanford’s black neighborhoods handing out the fliers demanding justice for Sherman Ware, and calling for the police to hold their own officials accountable. Zimmerman would also place the fliers on people’s cars outside churches.

“I challenge you to stand together and to have our voices heard, and to hold accountable all of those officers, and officials whom let this atrocious attack pass unpunished until the media revealed it,” one of the fliers reads in part. “This animal could have attacked anyone of us, our children or loved ones in his alcohol fueled rage.” (more)

After the Trayvon Martin shooting, when the institutional media was screaming racism, many voices within the Sanford community knew that Zimmerman was active in the case to help Sherman Ware find justice. This did not reconcile with screams of racist intent.

Unfortunately the voices of the Zimmerman defenders were drowned out by the megaphones of the institutional media, and the forward marching of the race-baiting class who saw an opportunity for notoriety, financial gain, power, prestige and influence at any cost.

George Zimmerman’s family pleaded with the community and even wrote a letter to local NAACP President, Clayton Turner, outlining their shock and disbelief. The very people George had tirelessly worked to help, with the specific example of the Sherman Ware case, were now turning on him. It just didn’t make sense:

“Do you know the individual that stepped up when no one else in the black community would?” the family member wrote. “Do you know who spent tireless hours putting flyers on the cars of persons parked in the churches of the black community? Do you know who waited for the church‐goers to get out of church so that he could hand them fliers in an attempt to organize the black community against this horrible miscarriage of justice? Do you know who helped organize the City Hall meeting on January 8th, 2011 at Sanford City Hall??”

“That person was GEORGE ZIMMERMAN. Ironic isn’t it?”

“The main point for this letter is to explain to you that the black community has labeled George a racist without any investigation at all,” the letter continued. “Regardless of the fact that George personally spoke to many of your constituents, not one has stepped forward and said, ‘Hey I know that face. That is the Hispanic guy that was standing up for Sherman Ware. That was the only non‐black face in the meetings for justice in this case.’”

“You know as well as I do that there are many NAACP followers that recognize George from the Ware case as well as many other good things that he’s done for the black community.”

FULL LETTER HERE

However, NAACP’s President Turner Clayton had an agenda of his own, and he was not the least bit interested in the feeble pleas for honesty and support from the Zimmerman family. The New York Times would call them the “White-Hispanic” Zimmerman family:

NAACP leader cites complaints of uninvestigated Sanford killings Turner Clayton, longtime resident of Sanford, Florida and NAACP leader in that community, joins Brooke. Clayton discusses an NAACP gathering in Sanford the previous night in which several citizens voiced their complaints with the Sanford Police Department. He goes on to describe several complaints from citizens regarding killings that were improperly investigated and unprosecuted. (Video)

Orlando Sentinel – The shooting death of the unarmed Trayvon, also black, became “the boiling point,” said Turner Clayton, president of the Seminole County chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

“Right now there is no trust. There is no faith in the department,” said Clayton, a former Seminole County deputy sheriff. “It’s probably a good idea that the interim chief come from the outside and not be part of the good-old-boy system.”

Turner Clayton knew how hard Zimmerman worked to help in the Sherman Ware case yet he did nothing. Perhaps the visibility of National NAACP President Ben Jealous arriving with Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton were too challenging to face with divergence. But there is another player within the NAACP officers club who might have been an influence in the decision to turn away from Zimmerman. More on that in a moment.

Thought of the Day

“Forget the Syria debate, we need to debate on why we’re always debating whether to bomb someone,” Maher said. “Because we’re starting to look, not so much like the world’s policeman, but more like George Zimmerman — itching to use force and then pretending it’s because we had no choice.”

NAACP leader Benjamin Jealous resigns, will leave in December

So Benjamin Jealous is to leave the NAACP?

A very passionate activist and indeed his whole family is, and giving pause for thought, he must eat and live the NAACP every day of his life….. and what is he going to do???? spend time with his children!

But look closely at the video below and you can see the signs…..

http://edition.cnn.com/2013/09/08/politics/naacp-ben-jealous-resigns/index.html?hpt=hp_t3

Did you notice the answer to “Biggest Civil Rights challenges remaining?” or Restoration of section four, the NAACP rising to the challenge, doubling the revenue to 46M, stronger , more powerful, and financially more sustainable??? and the most telling of all????? “ I plan on training the next generation of people who will lead this country”

Do we really believe that Mr Sharpton is going to let his main front man go?

Mmmmm Just consider for a moment……. if lets just say IF he wanted to change his job and extend it further say into politics, he would have difficulty being the leader of the NAACP wouldn’t he?

The expected promotion of Sharpton and Jackson to congress with Nancy Polinsky and Eric Holder would be complete if an activist such as Benjamin Jealous were to join them. That is my take on what is happening, and, if correct, Hillary Clinton must have a pretty good idea of the pressure she is going to be under if she actually does win the the presidency.

To be with my kids…. sorry Ben… I don’t believe it!

Justice for Trayvon…….. at a co$t

BUSINESS EXCHANGE: How to Make a Fashion Statement for Trayvon

William Reed | 7/24/2013, 3 p.m.

William Reed

Do you feel George Zimmerman is “a racist?” Make a fashion statement to let the world know how you feel. The issue of “race in America” was clearly illustrated in the attention African Americans paid to the Zimmerman trial. Nowadays, Black Americans are no longer asking, rather, they’re demanding “Justice for Trayvon Martin.”

If Zimmerman thought he’d live out his days as a happy camper, he’s sadly mistaken. The “Justice for Trayvon Martin” campaign has morphed into an enterprise that’s not going anywhere, anytime soon, especially if Parks & Crump, Attorneys at Law, have any say in the matter. Parks & Crump, which specializes in personal injury cases, happens to be one of the nation’s top Black law firms. Expert in law and civil rights, the firm is the reason that “[Trayvon] was packing a bag of Skittles and a can of Arizona Iced Tea” sticks in your mind.

Partners Darryl Parks and Benjamin Crump have been the most visible of the firm’s six-member team. Thanks largely to Crump’s legal position and activist efforts, the Martin case has prompted a flurry of marches and rallies around the nation, merited comment from President Barack Obama and garnered the attention of the U.S. Department of Justice.

The Parks & Crump camp helped to create a “Justice for Trayvon” industry consisting of protest paraphernalia that includes hoodies, sweatshirts and bumper stickers. The law firm proved to be instrumental in establishing the Trayvon Martin Foundation, with donations totaling an estimated $5 million dollars.

Crump is a principal with the Tallahassee-based firm. He was initially contacted by Tracy Martin’s cousin. His cousin, a Miami attorney, happened to be familiar with Crump’s civil rights work in Florida. The firm is headquartered in the state capital, and Crump is well connected and has been recognized by the NAACP Legal Defense Fund for his “enduring pursuit of justice.” The firm’s receipts from both city and state wrongful death lawsuits exceed $10 million.

Crump also colloborates with Orlando attorney Natalie Jackson. Crump and Jackson hired media communications expert Ryan Julison, to make sure that their strategy worked and the word got out. Then, they staged news conferences in which Trayvon’s parents talked about their loss. Florida media outlets began to notice. Shortly thereafter, they contacted Rep. Corrine Brown (D-Fla.) to help convince authorities to release 911 tapes – recordings that brought the case to the attention of the national media. The team applied pressure on authorities by organizing a series of rallies and worked with national civil rights figures such as Al Sharpton. Both Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were the first to arrive in Sanford to participate in various rallies and meetings.

As the case against Zimmerman moves from one court to another, Trayvon’s family members say they need financial assistance to ensure that justice is served. They’ve been directing donations toward a criminal justice advocacy foundation in the deceased teenager’s name.

The Trayvon Martin Foundation was established to keep this issue alive. It’s the vehicle through which Trayvon’s parents and their attorneys travel and work to create awareness of how violent crime impacts families of victims, and to provide support for the bereaved families. The foundation seeks to advocate that crime victims and their families not be ignored in the discussions about violent crimes, to increase public awareness of all forms of racial, ethnic and gender profiling and educate youth on conflict resolution techniques.

Zimmerman’s acquittal has sparked protests throughout the country. If you move from spectator to protestor, you too, can make a fashion or activist statement when you purchase a hoodie, sweatshirt or sticker to demand “Justice for Trayvon.” The cost of protesting isn’t cheap. The movement has enough “money to move the case forward” but sales of campaign materials and receipts are vital. Analysts say it will cost “at least $5 million” at each rung to move the case up the legal ladder. To make donations to move this case forward, contact: trayvonmartinfoundation.org.
