The Hypocrisy of Trayvon Martin
I am pretty sure if it was a group of muscular black guys with gang tattoos and thick accents drinking 40 ouncers, Zimmerman would not have approached or try to physically confront the group. Given that Trayvon Martin was a skinny kid with some skittles is a signal that he may not be a tough kid. The colorful design of the skittles bag may have lowered his street toughness. The kid tried to put on a mean face to scare away his killer. However, the kid was such an easy target.
The Strong and the Weak
It’s no different in the ghetto or elsewhere. The weakest targets get eliminated and the strong fighters survive. Black people get killed by black people all the time because of similar situations, under more cynic circumstances too. These types of killings always happen when the neighborhood gang is not pleased with the type of people that is visiting the neighborhood. The gang that Zimmerman belonged to wanted turf control desperately. This is what happens when people want turf control from rivals.
How to Attack Someone in the Streets
Zimmerman was mimicking basic street gang activity protocols.
If you are going to attack someone in the streets, the first thing is to evaluate the READINESS and STRENGTH of the future victim. If they are holding ice tea in one hand and skittles in the other hand, you know that they are not ready. At this point, you should take them out, because they are not ready and it’s a sure victory. It is how the strong takes out the weak.
Looking Tough in the Streets
I was never sure why African Americans try to look so tough and mean in the streets (ghetto). I know understand why they sport such a demeanor. It is as result of being regularly targeted by white, Hispanic and black people. If Trayvon Martin had been a bit bigger and intimidating, he would have finished his skittles. Social darwism is real and is being played out everywhere in the world by every race.
911 Call by Zimmerman
Even the 911 agent was very glad to hear that Trayvon Martin did not impose an immediate threat. The 911 agent told Zimmerman not to follow the kid when the kid walked away. "Are you following him, please don't follow him" said the 911 agent.
Whenever a crime is committed against a black man by a white, it is called racism.
Whenever a crime is committed against a black man by a black man, it is called barbaric.
Whenever a crime is committed against a white man by black man, it is called the gas chamber.
Whenever a crime is committed against a white man by a white man, it is called homicide.
Not a Race issue
It is important to understand that Trayvon Martin’s killing is not really an issue of race but an issue of innocent people getting killed. It is unfortunate that black kids have been killed by a white man. What about other killings. All killings must be denounced, no matter the race or culture.
ON A MYSTICAL LEVEL, GUNS ARE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED AND ENGINEERED TO KILL THE INNOCENT.
