If Trayvon Martin was a victim of white racism (hard to conceive since the shooter is apparently Hispanic), his murder would be an anomaly, not a commonplace. It would be a bizarre exception to the way so many young black males are murdered today. If there must be a generalization in all this—a call “to turn the moment into a movement”—it would have to be a movement against blacks who kill other blacks. The absurdity of Messrs. Jackson and Sharpton is that they want to make a movement out of an anomaly. Black teenagers today are afraid of other black teenagers, not whites.
Who needs facts, probable cause, courts, or even the 4th or 5th Amendment when bigotry, hearsay, and mob justice make things so much simpler. Our race baiting president really knows how to set a good example for the mindless minorities (those people who have the really big chips on their shoulders) and liberals (the folks who,well, want to be so generous with your own money).
