The aftermath of Trayvon’s death has brought a media circus of international attention, concerning allegations of racial motives of Zimmerman, police negligence and apathy, and criticism of Florida’s self-defense (stand your ground) law.
A number of my friends have asked me this week what I thought about the whole thing. When I first heard about it, I prayed for everyone involved as I am accustomed to doing whenever I hear about a tragedy, and thereafter hadn’t bothered to stay current with what I knew was going to turn into an opportunity for people to contradict themselves on the issue of life. And then it happened …..
On March 22, more than 8,000 people, many of whom were wearing hooded sweatshirts in honor of Trayvon, attended a rally in Sanford and demanded justice for the unarmed teenager. The protest was filled with impassioned speakers, including the Rev. Al Sharpton, who said that Zimmerman should have been arrested because you can’t “defend yourself against Skittles and iced tea.” Sharpton went to say, “We cannot allow a precedent when a man can just kill one of us … and then walk out with the murder weapon,” “We don’t want good enough. We want George Zimmerman in court with handcuffs behind his back.”
When asked about his feelings concerning Trayvon’s death, after a ceremonial event in White House Rose Garden today (3/23/12), President Barack Obama said “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”
Ok people, here’s the thing. It is a great tragedy that Trayvon was gunned down, but everyday in this country 1,500 babies are slaughtered in the womb’s of their mothers by men who look not much different from George Zimmerman, and nearly 50% of those babies are Black, and nearly 89% of those abortions are being performed in Planned Parenthood clinics, which was an organization founded by racist Margaret Sanger, with the intent to control and reduce the Black population (eugenics).
Trayvon Martin is dead, but RIGHT NOW – AT THIS VERY MOMENT about 750 Black babies are being slayed throughout this country by men who look not much different from George Zimmerman, and many of whom are boys who would grow up and look like Barack Obama. Yet, where’s the outrage? Where’s the outcry? Where’s the media attention? Where’s the hooded shirts? Where’s the rally? Where’s Al Sharpton? Where’s Jesse Jackson? Where’s the FBI? Where’s the 911 call?
From where I stand, your hypocrisy smells like a pile of horse dung and it makes me want to vomit. You constantly pick your own battles and consistently pick the wrong ones to fight, and all the while digging the graves of your own children and your conscience. But go ahead and keep following Al Sharpton and see if that gets you more than what you’ve been getting.
There is nothing we can do about Trayvon now – he’s in God’s care and justice belongs to the Lord. So let’s stop worrying about what we can’t do and start doing what we can do. What we can do is do something about these 1,500 babies being murdered right now in this country, and probably 20 times that number throughout the world by Planned Parenthood and organizations like it, and by surgical murders who don’t look much different from George Zimmerman.
