Not Guilty: Official Outrage to Follow

George Zimmerman, “self-described Hispanic,” was acquitted late last night.

We turn to the New York Times, America’s newspaper of record, for an inciteful (sic) reporting of the facts. Editorial comments and emphasis added.

George Zimmerman [“white Hispanic” with a Jewish name], the neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager, igniting a national debate on racial profiling and civil rights, [thanks to the DOJ, the Jackson-Sharpton Society of Perpetual Race Baiters® and their honorary members in the complicit media]  was found not guilty late Saturday night of second- degree murder. He was also acquitted of manslaughter, a lesser charge.

After three weeks of testimony, the six-woman jury rejected the prosecution’s contention that Mr. Zimmerman had deliberately pursued Mr. Martin because he assumed the hoodie-clad teenager was a criminal and instigated the fight that led to his death [although we here at the NYT have not, and will not reject it].


The case began in the small city of Sanford as a routine homicide but soon evolved into a civil rights cause examining racial profiling and its consequences — an issue barred from the courtroom — and setting off a broad discussion of race relations in America. Mr. Martin, with his gray hooded sweatshirt and his Skittles — the candy he was carrying — became its catalyst [due in no small part to diligent reporting on the racial profiling charge against Mr. Zimmerman by us and other media outlets constantly on the lookout for racism in America.].

Even President Obama [self- described black man] weighed in a month after the shooting, expressing sympathy for Mr. Martin’s family and urging a thorough investigation. “If I had a son,” Mr. Obama said, “he’d look like Trayvon.”

George Zimmerman has been found not guilty by a jury of his peers. However the NAACP and the jury of the Society of  Perpetual Race Baiters® is not persuaded. They will continue to hound George and use him as an example of racial injustice for decades to come; thus the tragedy of one young man’s death becomes the tragedy of character assassination and ruination of another young man’s life.

So here’s our official halftime score: American Justice System 1, Race Baiting Prosecutors Acting Stupidly 0. Official Race Baiting outrage to follow.

Let’s hope we can hold on and win in the second half.
