A Rush to Convict George Zimmerman is Reminiscent of the KKK
The debate between Piers Morgan and Toure of MSNBC, really shows just how this event has spun out of control. There are those attempting to incite more radical blacks to make this out to be more than it is. Toure seems to think this is a pivotal time in America, huh, that is pure rubbish. Unemployment and Iran are those issues, getting pissed off about this Trayvon Martin murder will not pay the bills, will not make the world safer, will not find you a job. It has become all about race.
It is fair to say that many have chosen to convict and hang George Zimmerman, both White and Black without even a trial. Sounds like we learned well from the Ku Klux Klan or KKK, that is EXACTLY how they acted against blacks and now, that is how many of the blacks are now acting. Is this payback? Those that have chosen to try and convict Zimmerman are akin to the KKK, whatever color and they ARE evil racists. They have become the people they have long hated.
The real truth will come out, it always does, even for the KKK it did. For MSNBC Toure to try to incite others by using Twitter and FB is totally wrong for a journalist who is there to report both sides. Using Zmmerman's name in a derogatory manner in Twitter messages is no longer being a journalist.
This case has spun out of control much to fast. The semantics of the words used to describe what happened may be exaggerated and wrongly used. No ones knows. Maybe George thought his nose was busted, yet it was not, yet told police that. Maybe the so called bashing of Zimmerman's head against the sidewalk actually was only once or twice. In either case, there might be no or just little bleeding. In the moment of the confrontation between George and Trayvon, people react without thinking clearly, they panic out of fear, they overreact. I think that is what happened. By Trayvon confronting George, I think George was surprised by it and unprepared and reached for this cell phone. Trayvon, was equally paranoid for many reasons and just reacted by hitting George.
The thing is, we only know there was a scuffle, we do not know what happened before. That is critical. In any case, the KKK is alive in many because of this event, both white and black.
