Careful not to pull a boner as he did when he condemned Cambridge cop Joe Crowley in 2009 without a scintilla of evidence, President Barack Hussein Obama has weighed in on the tragic Sanford, Florida killing of 17 year old Trayvon Martin by neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman.
The president, playing the race card for his black base as he did in the Cambridge affair, said, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon” and demanded exhaustive Sanford, Florida, and federal investigations into the case.
He declared that “some soul searching” was needed throughout the country but made no reference to why the president of the United States is involving himself in a local matter. As with Sandra Fluke and the female vote, Obama figured he could make points with his African-American constituency by telling them what his son would look like.
Despite the fact that details are still evolving on the incident, America’s leftists quickly and mindlessly sprang to a verdict of racially-inspired murder and blamed everyone from Zimmerman, who reportedly has a number of African-Americans and Latinos in his family, to Rush Limbaugh, Jeb Bush, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, George Romney, and virtually every white person in America.
At least they didn’t blame Sandra Fluke.
Professional race-mongers Louis Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton also galloped to the Sunshine State to spread their hateful bile and called for revenge and retribution. It wasn’t clear whom they blamed but presumably it was repressive and murderous white society as well as Zimmerman.
The racist New Black Panther Party didn’t want to be left out and so circulated a poster reading, “Murdered in Cold Blood, Child Killer of Trayvon Martin, WANTED DEAD or ALIVE.”
Accused gunman Zimmerman hasn’t been arrested due to lack of concrete evidence in the case and his claim of killing Martin in self-defense after being attacked, a claim substantiated by witnesses, and various Sanford officials have stepped aside to insure a fair and just inquiry.
No one would question the necessity of a full and thorough investigation into Martin’s death, except perhaps for Louis Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the New Black Panther Party and other racists who have rushed to judgment in order to stir the racial pot, create discord, garner donations, and grab headlines.
There may be a national need for Obama’s “soul searching” just as there was a need for a “new gentility” as preached by the president following the Tucson shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords and which never came to fruition thanks to relentless incivility from liberals.
However, there’s an equally-pressing necessity for objective crime reporting by the mainstream media with respect to black crime in America, a crying need that has frequently been addressed on this blogsite and admitted by some members of the MSM.
See “More Riotous Times in Obamaland,” http://bit.ly/p9gIJM.
The rabble-rousing Farrakhan threatened violent retaliation over Martin’s killing, the race-baiting Jackson declared, “Blacks are under attack” in America, and the consistently- ignorant Sharpton jumped on a plane to Florida to scream, “Arrest Zimmerman now!”
None of the above cited the reality that African-Americans–who constitute 13% of the population–assault, maim, and murder Caucasians and are charged, jailed, and convicted by juries of their peers in startlingly inverse proportions to their numbers.
The MSM, Farrakhan, et al. would have us believe blacks in America are still discriminated against, persecuted, and prosecuted against, and lynched as some were in the old, Democrat South. They also ignore the statistics on black crime against whites and attack as racist any Caucasian who dares mention the disparity between the stats and the reporting.
Largely un-reported by the MSM, violent black mobs have run wild in places like Peoria, Illinois, Bessemer, Alabama, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Des Moines, Iowa, and a number of other locales but few have gained any attention in the national media.
Maybe the MSM thinks if they don’t report black racist conduct it will go away. Unfortunately, things don’t work that way.
Also unreported have been news items which disprove the notion that white men have a lock on serial murders. BlackPeoria.com lists no less than 57 incidents of serial murders by blacks, few of which have been deemed significant enough to make the national papers. (http://bit.ly/oMJLKe)
More current is a post on Polipundit.com which features videos of obvious hate crimes committed by blacks against white people throughout the country.
Rarely charged with committing a hate crime, which carries steeper penalties than run of the mill violence, those criminals will get less jail time than they should and will be out on the streets far sooner because, well, because they are blacks and that repressive white society doesn’t want to be accused of racism or inciting riots.
The Polipundit videos presented a wide variety of black-on-white crimes and attacks:
. A brutal murder of a young, white couple in Knoxville by a black man;
. A white guy almost beaten to death by three blacks because of an interracial relationship;
. A white woman viciously assaulted on a Baltimore bus by nine blacks;
. Four Skidmore College blacks attacking a white man who made the mistake of sitting with a black man in a diner;
. Thirty or forty black youths senselessly beating a defenseless white family in Akron;
. Hundreds of black teenagers running wild and assaulting police and fairgoers at a Wisconsin state fair;
. Young, black girls attacking a white family in a Mineapolis public park;
. A pregnant white teen beaten by five blacks on a Seattle bus, and various other incidents of black racism which President Obama failed to address.

Indeed, all Americans should take Obama’s advice and search their souls to determine what they wish and hope for themselves, their children and for America’s future.
Trayvon Martin’s death was a tragedy. More tragic is the mainstream media’s policy of downplaying one of the most serious issues our country faces, an issue Abraham Lincoln foresaw all too well, that a racially-divided nation cannot survive.
