It's All About Race Now

by Patrick Buchanan - March 30th, 2012 - Human Events

To much of America's black leadership and its media auxiliaries, what happened in Sanford was, as Jesse put it, that an innocent kid was "shot down in cold blood by a vigilante."

Yet, from police reports, witness statements, and the father and friends of Zimmerman, another picture emerges.

Zimmerman followed Trayvon, confronted him, and was punched in the nose, knocked flat on his back and jumped on, getting his head pounded, when he pulled his gun and fired. That Trayvon's body was found face down, not face up, would tend to support this.

But, to Florida Congresswoman Federica Wilson, "this sweet young boy ... was hunted down like a dog, shot on the street, and his killer is still at large."

Some Sanford police believed Zimmerman; others did not.

But now that it is being investigated by a special prosecutor, the FBI, the Justice Department and a coming grand jury, what is the purpose of this venomous portrayal of George Zimmerman?

As yet convicted of no crime, he is being crucified in the arena of public opinion as a hate-crime monster and murderer.

Is this our idea of justice?

Black's constitute only 12.5% of the American population. Yet they commit 83% of the gun assaults in New York City. The crime rate by blacks is more than seven times the rate committed by whites. Yet if you say this, or write it as I just did, you are condemned as being a racist. While I was running for public office one delusion I heard a couple of times was the argument that blacks were half the population and whites better get used to blacks being on top. Where does this erroneous belief come from?

As an example of what it leads to, one group of black men repeatedly raped a young white girl, forced her to endure oral copulation again and again, forced her to drink bleach to destroy the DNA evidence, and then buried her alive to die. Before her own ordeal, she was forced to watch as they brutally killed her fiancée. The blacks were caught despite their attempts to hide the evidence. Then the idiocy started. The black community was outraged when the death penalty was sought by the D.A. Friends and family of the perpetrators actually argued that they did not deserve to be punished since they were the victims of racism. The black community seemed incapable of understanding white outrage at this preposterous idea.

Accusations of racism have become the excuse for any black to commit the most egregious acts without consequence - as far as blacks are concerned. Barack Obama has aggravated this problem. Far from his election helping to heal race relations, his obvious belief that whites are at fault for every problem has increased white backlash at the constant accusations of racism where no racism exists. The black 12.5% of the population need to accept the risk of their constant outrage. They do not deserve half the jobs and half the elected legislative votes as one black racist demagogue insisted. Their outrage is getting old.

Every vestige of racism cannot be eliminated before blacks accept that massive progress that has been made. If blacks refuse to acknowledge the reality of today, and instead insist that every white be responsible forever for the actions of some whites of 200 years ago, they may soon see the white population become just as racist as the out of control black leaders who are advocating blacks go out and riot in the streets.

A racist backlash will not serve the interests of that small proportion of our nation who are black. Blacks really are only 12.5% of the country. In their self-segregated communities where they daily see the population as overwhelmingly black it would be a serious mistake to believe that they are equal in number to the much larger white population. If blacks trigger a misguided race war, numbers will matter. That reality is part of the reason the NAACP has condemned the race baiting of black leaders like Sharpton and Jackson. They cannot afford to lose the sympathy of most whites or reverse discrimination will come to a screeching halt. Blacks are well on their way to that reaction.
