Black America is a battered spouse


Zimmerman verdict is a slap in the face to African Americans

From The Washington Times

“WASHINGTON, July 14, 2013 — The long relationship between African Americans and the U.S. can be compared to the stormy relationship in an abusive marriage. One spouse is always forgiving and covering bruises from the slaps, kicks and indignities, and the abusive spouse asks for forgiveness, swears to never strike again and makes up with a minor tokens like passage of civil and voting rights acts and affirmative action policies. Yet, the next slap is always near.

The Trayvon Martin verdict of not guilty of all charges is that punch in the gut, but this time the battered spouse has a decision to make. We, the U.S. and African Americans, can seek couple’s counseling and seek to address our issues together but always fearful of the next punch, or we can separate. If we address our issues together, we must address a dismal high school graduation rate of 62 percent and a high unemployment rate of 13.5 percent for the abused African American spouse.”

I tried to make the case the other day that no one outside the small circle of people who knew or were related to either Martin or Zimmerman should care too much one way or the other about the outcome of this case and they shouldn’t. Or, at the very least, shouldn’t be more interested in this case than they are about the other 8000-9000 black people that are murdered in America every year. Is there national outrage and/or NAACP involvement in why this happens year after year, after year? Why? Why is St. Trayvon placed on a pedestal and immortalized with the likes of Medgar Evers while 8000-9000 other African Americans are snuffed out with little more than a brief mention on a local news station?

Why isn’t it a bruise, slap, kick, or indignity to thousands of husbands, fathers, brothers, sons, and their families to be disregarded as simply casualties of a demented society while one 17 year old Floridian has nearly the same name recognition as the first black president of the United States?

Because none of those 8000-9000 lives that were needlessly ended can be racially twisted into a bruise, slap, kick, or indignity to every single black person in the country. Isn’t the message black Americans should be receiving from this that their very lives have value only up to the point their deaths can be exploited for political gain or to further the progressive agenda?

Wake up black America, you’re a battered spouse all right but Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman have nothing to do with it. If you want to know who to blame, you are going to have to go a little further back.

“I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” —Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One –

“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”—LBJ

Pawns in a game of Democrat led civil wrongs since the LBJ lead Senate fought tooth and nail against both the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act.

One thought on “Black America is a battered spouse

  1. The comments made by George Zimmerman’s brother following the “not guilty” verdict are perfectly in line with this article and are most insightful (as is this article). I recommend that his comments be published far and wide. I’m hoping for the black community to break the chains the “masters” have placed on them. Every single black conservative becomes the target of the whips and scorn of the democrat plantation owners. What a great amount of work it will be to free the slaves!
