Trayvon Martin was a 6'3" 17 year old
First off I hate writing about “racial” stories where someone black is involved. If you are not in lockstep with the New York City media elite you are labeled a racist. One bad word about black people and you are a racist, 100% proof positive, when you disagree. This has been going on since I was a child in the 1960s and it seems to have gotten worse as time passes. The media never sensationalized black on white crime, only white on black, or in this case Hispanic on black crime. Black on white crime is censored, covered up, and concealed whenever possible.
In the United States people are instantly ostracize by the media, government, universities, military, anything connected with government at the federal, state, or local level to utter one word of truth, like there might be differences in races, differences in crime statistics between races, differences in IQs of races. We live in the equivalent of fascist Germany or communist USSR in America when it comes to truthfully talking about race.
Since I am at the end of my life cycle I just do not care that much anymore. I am not in the “hip” crowd, never was, and I do not have a $150,000 government job to lose. I will try to be “sensitive,” barf, as I can. I understand people are individuals, not everyone is a creep, murder, rapist, druggie, just because of their skin color or propensity to wear “gang” clothing.
Briefly what happened in the Trayvon Martin case:
Hispanic George Zimmerman allegedly used lethal force to successfully defend himself from a potentially deadly encounter
1. When police officers arrived, George Zimmerman had a bloody nose and was bleeding from a wound on the back on his head.
2. The eyewitness who called 911 said Zimmerman who screamed for help.
3. The eyewitness also reports that Zimmerman was on the ground and Martin was on top of him beating on him.
This information was made public by a local Orlando television station on February 27th.
Of course no one but Zimmerman knows exactly what happened but speculation is that Zimmerman was following Martin and Martin did not like it, confronted Zimmerman, and started kicking his ass. Zimmerman pulled a gun and killed Martin.
The story flashed me back to Pontiac, Michigan in the early to mid 70s. Pontiac was suffering race riots with court ordered bussing in 1971, the GM Pontiac plant was in decline, and white flight was in its infancy.
Judge Damon A. Keith thought he had the answers to race problems in 1969 and ordered desegregation in 1971, which resulted in white flight by 1975. Photo 1973.
It was not uncommon for young men to form into groups, “gangs,” and roam the streets looking to commit petty theft, fights, and girls. I was no different and roamed the streets all summer long looking for adventure and excitement. I hung around two other boys most of the time and we did juvenile petty crime, stealing change out of cars, gas, vandalism, bikes, alcohol, and other substances. When it came to females it must have been a different time because we invariably struck out time after time.
Two of us were white and one Hispanic. I am here to testify that you do not have to be “walking while black” to be suspicious. We were confronted several times, followed, reported, and chased. Most people were non-confrontational but occasionally they were not. Most of the time we simply walked away and that was the end of the confrontation. But sometimes the sparks flew.
One night the three of us were walking around looking for change in cars way past bedtime and three girls parked directly in front of us. Too good to be true? You bet ya.
While we were talking to them their three boyfriends, all about three years older than us, snuck up on us from behind. I ran, got away, one of my friends could not run and stood his ground with heavy duty 4’ industrial chain and his pursuer wisely did not attack.
The other friend was caught from behind, and had to fight it out in a vicious battle with a larger opponent. He was able to poke his pursuer in the rips with a piece of rebar he always carried and got away. I doubled backed and went to assist my friends who were buzzing with excitement. Not much damage and plenty of excitement. It made being alive SOOOO exciting.
Science class, Pontiac, Michigan, 1973
Another time I was in the EXACT situation Martin was in. It was in the morning, daylight, and a older man probably in his late 20s was following me. I was on my way home after a night of ghetto behavior. I had nothing on me, simply walking home. And I was white. It made no difference; the man hurriedly ran towards me and yelled at me to stop. There we were no more than 20 feet apart.
In this situation Martin choose to attack his pursuer. Martin is 6’3” and no kid. I was 6’ and about the same weight as Martin. I was not scared of the rotund man physically. An out of shape late 20s or 30s man is no match for teenager use to confrontation and physical battle. It would be an ass kicking if I choose to go that rout. Out of shape fat men can last a minute, at best in a physical fight. I was in shape, excellent shape.
So what did I do?
I took one looked at the man saw he was a blubbery out of shape moron, and ran through the closest back yard available.
Why the back yards and not the street?
The man had a car. Why would I give him the advantage of getting in his car and following me? For Gods sake was I that stupid?
By going into back yards I was simply using my superior conditioning to;
1. Get out of visual sight as fast as possible.
2. Move a few streets over and eventually out of the neighborhood. This tactic works well with cops also, back in the days when helicopters were not as prevalent as they are today. I feel bad for kids today.
But what about dogs and fences?
The fences were no problem, 4’, 6’, and even 10’ fences could be easily climbed in about two seconds, maybe five in the case of a 10’ fence. They were not an obstacle for me, but they were an obstacle for my pursuer.
Dogs would bark and you simply put distance as fast as you could. No big problem the overwhelmingly majority of time.
Why avoid confrontation?
1. Usually I was guilty as charged and the guy was simply doing his job.
2. What good would come out of a fight with a fat assed 20 something?
Really, seriously, what good will come out of it?
Cops, jail, women screaming, dogs barking, death?
I had much more desirable things to do than fight some fat cop wanna bee. Sleep, eat, marijuana, you name it, many other activities more enjoyable than getting medieval with a fat ass.
I think Martin saw his superior physical advantage combined with his rage over the “injustice” and decided to kick Zimmerman’s ass. That simple. Unfortunately for Martin Zimmerman had a gun and he used it. When you are on the streets there is no mercy and there are no rules. Martin was 17; I was 14 when my incident happened.
Which brings up the media coverage, why?
The real reason the media is covering this “outrage” is a man defended himself with a concealed weapon successfully. Initially he was identified as white and white men are not allowed to defend themselves in America. When Bernhard Goetz successfully defended himself in NYC against four thugs with a gun he was charged with attempted murder, assault, reckless endangerment, and several firearms offenses. Fortunately he was convicted only on the illegal firearms possession and served eight months in prison.
Zimmerman is the Bernhard Goetz of 2012. He reported to the Sanford Police that he successfully defended himself from a physical attack from Martin, and the evidence backed him up. To be fair to both Zimmerman and the family of Martin the case should have been presented to a grand jury, if for no other reason than to clear Zimmerman. There was a death; this was not a local fight with minor injuries. If the authorities mess up on anything it was they not understanding the difference between a local brawl and a death case.
What could have happened if Zimmerman did not have the gun?
He could be the guy with the funeral and there would be no national media coverage. Everyday blacks commit hate crimes against whites. While blacks make up 13% of the population they commit 85% of the crimes between blacks and whites. Crime statistics have been around for a century. This is nothing new.
Here are a few horrific black on white hate crimes that receive no national media coverage:
O’Fallon teen attacked near her home
Update: Judge denies bail for man arrested in Ashleigh Jacobs death
Boy, 14, charged in rape of woman, 90
KC police investigate assault said to be racially motivated
A mother killed in cold blood, a 90 year old raped, beatings, stabbings, and no national media coverage and outrage. A man in Sanford, Florida allegedly successfully defends himself against an alleged physical attack and it’s a national story.
Yes and we are sick of it. The propaganda days are over. The one world government is not happening. If anything happens it will be politicians who lied to the people about the debt ending up like Mussolini, reporters who lied as a daily practice being unemployed, and bankers who ripped of the people reliving the 1930s and 40s.
People can take crap only so long…and then they explode.
