Trayvon Martin Case: George Zimmerman Was 'Jekyll And Hyde,' Former Co-Worker Says

Commented Apr 2, 2012 at 04:12:01 in Black Voices

“This is in reply to you comment below... you simply do not know what you are talking about. First of all, the pilgrims were not slaves, secondly the first european indentured servants who came here were enslaved for a specified period of time, as were the African indentured servants, then after the two groups joined together in rebellions against the plantation elites, the powers that be started to implement laws to keep them apart, started promoting the new idea of whiteness, and gradually outlawed "white" indentured servitude and made "black" indentured servitude a lifetime serivitude with a like obligation passed on to their children based on the new notions of "race." This complete lifetime racialized slavery had never happened before, it was unique. Please read more before you go talking like you know something... I suggest you start with historian Theodore Allen's The Invention of the White Race, Volumes 1 & 2...”

“The pilgrims came for religious freedom. That is true most had a servitude of 7 years. It was not unique. If you have read a history book look at all the jews born into slavery for the egyptians and Moses freed them. They too were born into slavery and were not black. There were many Asian and European countries where this had been practiced for thousands of years. Before you tell someone to read history it is a great idea to take your own advice. Second indentured servants started in the north while slavery started in the south and never went to the north.”

“Yes, they should definitely look into that and procecute any one who broke the law, but please don't delude yourself into thinking this will be a blow to African Americans, most of whom do not know, and have never even heard of the so-called "NEW black panthers", who are just a small group of balck racist extremists who were sued by the real Black Panther for using their name, and who are mainly only known by Fox listeners. I am sure though you will be disgusted to learn that white racists extremists have grown at an alarming rate, commiting all manner of threats of violence and actual violence and outnumber the "new black panthers" at least 3000 to 1. You had better call Fox News and alert them right away!!!”

SQUARE POINT on Apr 2, 2012 at 03:59:01

“I didn't see purpose in DenverPainters’ post to strike a blow to African Americans.

Your counteroffensive attacking white racist extremists is not pertinent unless DenverPainters was first fielding a racist attack, - which they are not.

For all you know, DenverPainters doesn't watch Fox News, but you have stigmatized them and Fox News negatively.

The result of your attack will not bring a positive result.”

“You are seriously confused... Apparantly you are not aware that the NAACP was started in the early 1900s by blacks and whites to address institutionalized white racist bias and violence... you know, the stuff you as a "good citizen" supposedly "can and will" point to? Did you hear about that latest study that found that bigots have significantly lower average IQ?”

jeff14 on Apr 2, 2012 at 10:19:57

“civil rights laws were not in place in 1909. in 2012, they are, to continue with racial bias is the work of weaklings. iq has nothing to do with it. its about guts. of which naacp and any supporter has none. you are not fooling anyone except yourself. and thats not hard to do.”

“Glad to know you are willing to acknowledge and express concern about what happened to somebody. No it did not happen to people of all races... it did not happen to whites, and although what was, and is happening to Native americans is equally horrific, only "blacks" were treated to two centuries of racialized slavery, systematic rape and destruction of the family, and spectacle lynchings. And BTW we are all descendents of people from Africa.”

davidspeicher on Apr 2, 2012 at 03:22:37

“It did happen to whites for many years that is why we have The United States of America. They were slaves in their own countries and came here to start a new life and this lasted for thousands of years. They wanted something different so they MOVED. It is happening to whites in Africa right now so please spare me. If you look at the system in Africa now it is much worse than it is in the USA so they should be glad they were able to come here. All of our ancestors paid a price now we can live in the past or move on. I have chosen to move on and be an American. Oh so then by your statement we are all African Americans!”

“The old "go back to Africa" card...the last refuge of the racist LOL!! And if we were to concede that some Africans were involved in the selling of some other africans during the slave trade, would that mean that everything after that that happened in OUR Nation and OUR history regarding the enslaving, raping, torturing, etc., etc., of African Americans was OK....? Whatever gets you through the night....”

davidspeicher on Apr 1, 2012 at 19:58:28

“So you think this only happened to people of african descent? Please if you have every read up on American history then you would know this happened to all races. Please tell me about the American indians and the Chinese that were enslaved and beaten and so on. Oh did you know the American indian still has reservations? They have never been truly freed. It never happened to you and just because someone's skin is dark does not make them a descendent from Africa.”

“to all the racists on here constantly trying to change the topic back to black criminality (which is seriously crass given the nature of the incident we are discussing) and constantly using black crime as an excuse for their racism and depravity: First of all whites and blacks are overwhelmingly more likely to be killed by someone of their own racist depravity...I guess it would be nice-- from the POV of racists like you-- if white supremacy in the the US history could spend at least 300 years disenfranchising and violating blacks in every way imaginable, including making them disproportionately poor, but no white people ever suffered any repercussions in the form of being robbed or attacked by a poor person who happened to be Black. But the assault on innocent black people by racist thugs, including the police, just because they are Black is a whole other category of "serious issue." African Americans are disproportionately the victims of crimes by poor black people, AND have the highest rates of being the victims of hate crimes, AND get discriminatory treatment, abused and even killed regularly by the police. THAT is why people of good conscience rally in cases like this (and the other equally egregious cases like it going on as we speak), and why we should all care and demand an end to this two tiered system of "justice."”

“you have to explain the naacp pointing out racial bias with a racially biased finger before your comment will be valid. you have to answer for the civil rights of zimmerman, who HAD the right to due process, being violated by so called civil rights leaders. "people of good conscience" should not be hypocrites. if they want credibility.”

DSEVR on Mar 31, 2012 at 21:08:42

“So if it was a black on black crime would it have made the National News? "Highest rates of being victims of Hate Crimes"? So when the brother shoot other brothers where is the hate? Can't wait for you guys to loot and burn down local businesses when a "not guilty" verdict is announced. Don't recall you doing this when OJ was found not guilty, or thousands of whites rioting and burning based on this verdict. The illegitimate birth rate among blacks is over 70%. Poss you could rally about this but probably too busy getting your new hair extensions.”

“these "people of good conscience" are guilty of violating the civil rights of another. civil rights leaders violating civil rights. zimmerman HAD the right to due process. each and every rallier is guilty of violating that civil right.

“I'm content to wait for real investigation of the incident to be made known to the public. In the interim, all the talk and outrage one way or another is a peripheral issue that won't go away. While your essay is a good piece of advice, and I hope it can be followed, you must also acknowledge that there are those who talk the talk but do not walk the walk: In particular, Obama, Sharpton and Jackson have weighed in on the issue in ways that only foment hatred and racial division. Send your comment to them. See what they say, or if they will even acknowledge receiving it.”

“If they are so unhappy with the USA and want to be African Americans instead of just Americans then the wonderful think about the USA is they can buy a plane ticket and fly to Africa where they can be the majority and do not have to be anything but Africans. If you want to make a change then you need to follow the rules of that country and help make them better not complain when you do not like them and say it is because they are a different color.

You forget your history. Slaves were sold by there own people to the Dutch and then brought here. If we did not buy them they would have been murdered by their own countrymen. Which is better? Less you forget that the Romans had slaves from all countries. They used them as gladiators and worse. Why is it always a color issue and why do Americans always get blamed for the Africans selling their own people from tribal wars?”

“African American is politically created by politcians. Back is the correct term, black people have come from variety different places and originated if the historians are right in middle east.
Besides the african american term you have made a point of what humans are in this case the white ones. Trying to get rid of this horrible practice will not happen. It will go on as much we do not like it. Africa is a example of life where it is all black and all have different cultures,religion,and practice hate worse than here. My wish is for one world where people can enjoy all what the earth has to offer and not jus the privledged few.”

“As you state, these blacks teens were ARRESTED in that incident, and it is being investigated properly from the beginning...? Zimmerman' s SHOOTING of Trayvon Martin should have been handled similarly, whether it is deemed a hate crime or not.

Are you aware that in Los Angeles County latino on black hate crimes FAR Out NUMBER black on Latino hate crimes? Check out the LA County Commission on Human Relations Hates Crimes reports for the last decade.

Demonizing black youth and distorting reality to justify violence against a teen walking home from the store, is exactly why Trayvon Martin was murdered and Zimmerman is still free.”
