Time Magazine Says "It's Racist For Cops to Prepare For Riots After Zimmerman Verdict"

For the benefit of those of you who have been off the planet for the last year or so, the "Zimmerman" is George Zimmerman (a "white-hispanc"), who is being (feebly) prosecuted for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin (a black teen). There have been rumblings - from somewhere - that if Zimmerman is not convicted there will be racial unrest in Sanford, Florida - if not the entire universe.

Although their decision to prepare IS "race-based" it IS NOT "racist". Black Americans have a long history of "playing the race card" based upon their "victim" status. In the past - prior to 1960 - some of it was fully-justified. That deck of "race cards" has long-since been exhausted.

However, preparations in and around Sanford, Florida to quell rioting is not solely race-based - it is also based upon the historically documented reactions of black Americans to any action taken against any member of the "black community". In their eyes, blacks can do no wrong. If they DO commit a crime it is "whitey's fault" for having something they wanted. If Trayvon Martin had killed George Zimmerman, there would be a black mob outside the court, demanding Trayvon's release. He would have been justified in killing Z for having the audacity to question his presence in a gated community of which he was not a resident. What a racist thing for Z to do!

OJ Simpson murdered two people in cold blood, but he was not found INNOCENT. He was found "not guilty". Why? Because LA did not want an re-enactment of the Rodney King incident, or the LA riots of the mid-1960s, it was a political decision rather than a legal one. Black Americans (especially when a high-profile case is being tried in a large metropolitan area) are - perhaps naturally - inclined to side with the black person - whether victim or perpetrator. That inclination may also be based upon the history of blacks with our system of justice, inasmuch as they were not always fairly tried - especially in our southern states.

Regardless of the reasons, black Americans have a HISTORY of violent reactions when things don't go their way. It would be foolish for law enforcement to ignore that fact. It is that history which necessitates the expectation of - and preparations for - race-based violence, if Z IS NOT convicted. Such preparations are based upon history. If the Chinese, Mexican, Arab or Caucasians had such a history, there would be the VARY SAME preparations being made! Are the people at Time Magazine too stupid to understand that? Do they not see the potential for their remarks to FUEL such an incident... or is that their PLAN? Violence in the streets makes GREAT news, and sells lots of magazines!

The good news? I'm not certain that there is any - other than the fact that Sanford FL is NOT a "large metropolitan area", and unless agitators come from outside the community, the chances of rioting by the black population fail to appear realistic to me. Most blacks are as law-abiding as any other racial group - but THEY aren't the one's that get the national publicity! THEY aren't the one's getting arrested and filling our prisons! THEY also aren't the one's that will get involved in a riot of any kind... unless the facts surrounding the riot are "beyond a shadow of a doubt"! That's my 2¢ worth.
