In the world of news stories, we are accustomed to seeing things come when they are broken and then eventually just fade away into history when the next breaking story comes by. That is unless they require investigation to further find out facts about it. That is what the media is supposed to do, inform the public about what is happening around them, especially about what the government is doing. But instead, they seem to desire to divide the public especially any time something can be attributed to race.
During the past couple of weeks, news of the trial trying to convict George Zimmerman of murder dominated every single media source that you can think of, in fact, coverage and commentary of the aftermath is still fairly dominating. I agree that this was a very attention-grabbing trial and while I admit that I was interested too, it is getting extremely out of control.
During the time of the Zimmerman trial there were 54 people shot dead in Chicago alone. This is one type of crime in one city in one state within the whole United States of America. While the media and nitwits like Al Sharpton cried wolf and rebuked America for the trial ending in an acquittal they ignored the fact that over 50 people died in Chicago. In fact, 76% of these people were black. We sit here and watch them yell racism is alive and well and Benghazi, the IRS and Fast and Furious go unanswered. We let them tell us that they care about the black population but they ignore the deaths of blacks by other black people, the unbelievable number of births out of wedlock, and the disproportional amount of abortions that are destroying their population. They sit idly by while our culture is destroyed and search for situations that they can call racist so that they can make their buck and get famous.
This trial that has taken place in fact had a legitimate conclusion but I agree that it should never have had to happen. These two men should have stayed miles away from each other but they didn’t and regretfully one of them ended up dead. But emerging from this trial and with all of the hypocrisy around us there are two important lessons that we need to learn as a country. Race is not the motive for every single wrong done, and the constant suggestion of racism in every volatile situation further divides our population when we are facing a government that wants nothing less than to take our freedoms in the name of power for themselves. Any smart human being knows that a divided public is much easier controlled than a unified one.
We as a country need to move on from these foolish ideas that racism is still alive and well all across America and make Sharpton and Jackson inconsequential. The only reason people like them are successful is because we let them divide us with things like race instead of uniting us based on our humanity. It is important that we pay attention to our surroundings and work for the greater good that we can attain in the revitalization of our culture.
