Critical Race Theory, White Privilege, and George “White/Hispanic” Zimmerman Circus Trial
The George Zimmerman trial could very well end up being a complete miscarriage of justice, if Zimmerman is convicted of anything. Former Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee has stated that his team of officers did a “sound” investigation. Because of it, they could not justify charging Zimmerman with anything. For 44 days, he remained free until things began to turn against him.
It appeared to be an open and shut case. That is, until “a special state task force set up under pressure from the Obama administration decided it was murder — with no grand jury input. Among evidence to support the charge, the affidavit noted Martin’s mother listened to a recorded 911 call and “identified the voice crying for help as Trayvon Martin’s.”
The entire Zimmerman/Martin fiasco has become a racially-charged vendetta against white people vs. blacks, with pressure coming down on the investigators to charge Zimmerman with murder. “The lead detective in the case, Chris Serino, said he felt pressure to charge Zimmerman with murder, even though he said there was no evidence to support it.”
Here is an interesting timeline that shows the possibility of collusion from the federal government to charge Zimmerman with something:
- Feb. 26, 2012: Zimmerman shoots Martin, claiming self-defense; later released after police questioning.
- March 12: Sanford, Fla., police chief insists there’s not enough evidence to charge Zimmerman, but turns investigation over to the state attorney’s office for review after protests from civil-rights groups.
- March 20: Attorney General Holder launches investigation of police handling of case. U.S. prosecutors meet with Martin’s parents and the Rev. Al Sharpton.
- March 22: Al Sharpton holds rally, yelling: “We came for permanent justice. Arrest Zimmerman now!”
- March 22: Florida Gov. Rick Scott puts Corey on case; Corey decides not to let grand jury review evidence.
Look carefully at the sequence of events. On February 26th, Zimmerman was released without charge. Former Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee later stated that the shooting did not even fall under Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, but was a case of pure self-defense.
A few weeks later, Lee insisted there was not enough evidence to charge Zimmerman with anything, but is forced to turn case over to state attorney’s office after complaints and protests from civil rights groups (funded by the Department of Justice).
Almost one month after Zimmerman goes free without being charged, Eric Holder begins an investigation of how police handled the case. Holder’s racial animosity pushes things forward.
Two days later, Sharpton holds a rally creating racial division and strife. That same day, Florida’s government assigns Angela Corey to the Zimmerman situation and she decides not to let the grand jury review any evidence. Her office ultimately charges Zimmerman with 2nd Degree Murder and we have since learned that she “withheld key exculpatory evidence in its arrest affidavit and charged Zimmerman under false pretenses.”
The trial itself has continued the circus atmosphere, with heated exchanges between defense lawyers and Judge Debra Nelson. Even yesterday, the judge “overruled” Zimmerman’s lawyers when they objected to her directly asking Zimmerman a question about whether he had decided to testify on his own behalf. Beyond this, the judge has often disallowed anything to do with Martin (though she did allow the information related to the fact that Martin had marijuana in his system at the time of his death). Anything to do with Zimmerman has been allowed.
The real tragedy of the case is that even though Zimmerman is on trial, it’s really race relations that are on trial. Political correctness, by its very nature, pits race against race. The belief that a certain ethnic group (whites) are automatically given a leg up in society over and against all others means that the wheels of “equality” must shift in order to force whites to the back of the bus, while blacks and other minorities have their turn at the table. The belief is that for too long, whites have controlled things and they must be “legally” punished for it.
Many blacks (and leftist whites) believe in the faulty (and unproven) Critical Race Theory, which gave birth to the belief in “white privilege.” This is the idea that whites – simply by being white – automatically gain more in society than others. Critical Race Theory was created by black educators and even though they clearly stated that “white privilege” can benefit someone without that person even knowing it (that’s convenient), many blacks firmly believe that this theory is completely true in spite of all the helps they receive from the federal government that reverse discriminates against whites.
I would say that there is something in society that would be better labeled “rich privilege,” not “white privilege.” If you’re rich in America, you have power. That’s the way it’s always been and always will be.
George Zimmerman is being used. He is really nothing more than a patsy. The judge in the case has now even stated that if the jury can’t find him guilty of 2nd Degree Murder, they can consider lesser charges of manslaughter. The prosecution has also introduced the idea that Zimmerman can be found guilty on 3rd Degree Murder, which involved a felony against a “child.” The whole thing is ridiculous. They appear to be trying too hard to find something that will stick and if nothing does, then it proves to racists that racism is the reason.
What we have in the offing is a no-win situation that will simply create more racial unrest and distrust. Just what America needs. Brenner .
