    Ex Obama administration official Van Jones being.. Van Jones..

    Van Jones: Obama, as a Black Man, Was Forced By Media to Sit With Racist Police Officer at Beer Summit

    . . .
    In an April 3rd appearance on the left-wing Democracy Now TV show, Van Jones has offered his own behind-the-scenes take on an incident that made race a political issue three years before the Trayvon Martin case. As Jones describes it, the infamous “beer summit” on the White House lawn was a case where President Obama was “forced” into a meeting with a “racist” police officer.

    Van Jones: The right wing and the law enforcement establishment brought the wrath of God down on the White House, I was there, and suddenly he’s forced to do a beer summit to sit eye to eye with a racist police officer… as a black man, even the most powerful man in the world, can not speak about race and if he does he’s then forced to sit humbly across the table from a racist police officer.

    . . .
    Yup.. with people like this in his administration the "post racial" healing was bound to happen about as well as it has. Guy could be Eric "nation of cowards" Holder's twin.

    Re: Race issues in the media: U.S. and elsewhere

    I'm so tired of race being brought into things, particularly when it wasn't racially motivated.

    I'm tired of the "blacks" that drudge up ancestors slavery.
    I'm tired of "white" people picking on someone because of their race.

    Of all the things to take issue with, race has to be the ••••••• stupidest reason to do so. It's a physical trait that has nothing to do with your personality. Yet, look at the shit storm that comes whenever something happens to a "minority", especially when whitey is involved.

    This is the •••••••• Martin Luther King, Jr. wanted not to happen.

    Some people are stuck with the mindset that black people are down because whitey is sticking them there.
    My black neighbors are awesome. They are some of the nicest people I've met, they are well off, keep their house in good shape, etc. They're out there contributing to society and have nice jobs. They didn't let their skin color keep them down. Using your race as an excuse to be lazy, be down on life, cause chaos is retarded. It has nothing to do with intelligence either.

    It makes my blood boil to see an uncontrollable, genetic trait valued in away that some folks make a fuss over it.

    I know white people that are nice, and I know some who are asses. I believe that this must apply to other races as well.

    We're all humans, and much like automobiles, there are variations to this.

    White victim beaten by black mob. Nothing to see here.... keep walking.



    IF YOU DON’T LOOK LIKE OBAMA’S SON, NO ONE CARES

    The news story is horrifying: after a trivial encounter with a group of youths who were playing basketball, a man in Mobile, Alabama, was set upon by a gang of twenty men armed with brass knuckles, chairs, pipes and paint cans. The victim, Matthew Owens, was attacked on his own front porch and beaten within an inch of his life. He is in critical condition and may die:



    As the gang walked away after assaulting Owens, one of them said, “Now that’s justice for Trayvon.” Jim Treacher comments:

    Hey, that’s what he gets for having a similar skin color to someone we’ve all been instructed to hate.

    Well done, Spike Lee. Nice job, NBC. Keep up the good work, ABC. And to everyone else who’s been using a shooting in Florida to foment hate and divide people by the color of their skin, kudos. Don’t let this attack, and similar attacks across America, bother you. If you had a conscience, we never would’ve heard of you in the first place.
    Well, it won’t bother them; we know that. It certainly won’t bother Barack Obama. Matthew Owens doesn’t look like his son, and there are no votes to be had. For Obama, if it doesn’t help his re-election campaign, it doesn’t exist. Whether he likes it or not, however, I think incidents like this one, which have multiplied all across America, will hurt Obama in the fall. Millions of Americans voted for Obama in part because they thought his election would put racial division to rest, or at least contribute to that goal. But the opposite has happened. Obama has been an extraordinarily divisive president; neither he nor others in his administration, like Eric Holder, have ever hesitated to foment race hatred when they thought it would serve the Democrats’ political interests. As it turned out, Obama’s election represented a setback for race relations in the United States, an outcome that virtually no one foresaw. This is just one way–but perhaps an important one–in which voters are disillusioned with Obama.

    Re: Race issues in the media: U.S. and elsewhere

    Why it's almost just like the "white Hispanic" guy claimed. Oh wait.. it is just like Zimmerman claimed. No matter.. the media and race hustlers have already cashed in.

    Cops, Witnesses Back Up George Zimmerman's Version of Trayvon Martin Shooting

    Florida Releases Evidence, Crime Scene Photos in Trayvon Martin Shooting

    Two police reports written the night that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin said that Zimmerman had a bloody face and nose, according to police reports made public today.

    The reports also note that two witness accounts appear to back up Zimmerman's version of what happened when they describe a man on his back with another person wearing a hoodie straddling him and throwing punches.


    It has been such a contentious case that even the evidence is being disputed.

    The police report states that Trayvon Martin's father told an investigator after listening to 911 tapes that captured a man's voice frantically callling for help that it was not his son calling for help.

    But Tracy Martin, Trayvon's father, claims that is not true. The Martin family lawyer Ben Crump told ABC News that Tracy Martin initially listened to a distorted version of the 911 calls and said he could not identify the voice. But when he listened to a second tape that had been "cleaned," "He immediately broke down in tears because he knew it was his son calling for help," Crump said.

    The new information is part of a trove of documents released by the Florida State Attorney today in the case against Zimmerman, who is charged with second degree murder for the Feb. 26 killing of Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old African American male.

    Zimmerman, 28, is a multi-racial Hispanic man who volunteered for the neighborhood watch committee who claimed that he shot Martin in self-defense after the 6-foot tall, 160 pound teenager knocked him to the ground, banged his head against the ground and went for Zimmerman's gun.

    The documents start with a criticism of Zimmerman's decision to follow the teenager, who Zimmerman said was looking suspicious.

    "The encounter between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin was ultimately avoidable by Zimmerman, if Zimmerman had remained in his vehicle and awaited the arrival of law enforcement," an investigating officer wrote.

    Zimmerman claims he got out of his vehicle to find a house number to let police know where he saw the allegedly suspicious person, and while returning to his car was knocked down by a punch in the nose and attacked by Martin.

    Two police officers reported that when they arrived at the scene of the shooting, Zimmerman seemed to have a battered nose and bloodied face. One wrote that his "facial area was bloodied," and the back of his clothing was soiled with wet grass.

    "Zimmerman was also bleeding from the nose and the back of his head," Officer Ricardo Ayala wrote.

    Another officer wrote, "I saw that Zimmerman's face was bloodied and it appeared to me that his nose was broken."

    Witnesses, whose names were redacted from the report, also lent support to Zimmerman's version of what happened.

    "He witnesses a black male, wearing a dark colored 'hoodie' on top of a white or Hispanic male and throwing punches 'MMA (mixed martial arts) style,'" the police report of the witness said. "He then heard a pop. He stated that after hearing the pop, he observed the person he had previously observed on top of the other person (the male wearing the hoodie) laid out on the grass."

    A second witness described a person on the ground with another straddling him and throwing punches. The man on the bottom was yelling for help, the witness told police.

    The documents state that Zimmerman can be heard yelling for help 14 times on a 911 call recorded during the fight.

    The lead investigator on the case, Officer Christopher Serino, wrote that Zimmerman could be heard "yelling for help as he was being battered by Trayvon Martin."

    Martin's death sparked public outrage after police released Zimmerman without any criminal charges for the killing. Zimmerman was later charged with second-degree murder, and the killing provoked widespread debate about racial profiling.

    The autopsy also shows that Zimmerman shot Martin from a distance of between 1 inch and 18 inches away, bolstering Zimmerman's claim that he shot Martin during a close struggle.

    Martin's autopsy report also revealed that there was a quarter-inch by half-inch abrasion on the left fourth finger of Martin, another indication of a possible struggle.

    The teen, who lived in Miami, was in Sanford while serving a suspension for a bag of marijuana being discovered in his possession. Martin had THC, the drug found in marijuana, in his blood on the night of his death, according to the autopsy. His family told ABC News that it was "trace amounts" of THC.
    MSM~racebaiters narrative shot to sh*t. News sure to be on page a-17.

    ^^^What a crock. Reason #174,378 why the media should stay the Hell out of the business of the courts! I think race relations in this country would improve 100% if the media stopped trying to tell all of us that we hate each other.

    The media that reported on this should be sued. Having only one person in the entire industry fired for their coverage of this is outrageous. They told a story of a big white guy stalking a tiny 12-year old black teenager for "looking suspicious" and then shot him. They brought race into it without cause, attempting to outrage the "black" community and putting Zimmerman's life in danger.

    The more information comes out, the more the real story becomes clear.

    Zimmerman went after someone who looked and acted like all the other people that had been robbing his neighbourhood. He got attacked by a tall pot smoking punk, got beaten on the ground, then shot his attacker in the chest at close range.

    Second Degree murder? Right.

    Well the race hustlers and media have moved on... not that they would cover this angle anyway. But it appears that the Az tea and Skittles are used in ways I had not considered making "lean".

    Update #26 Part 2 – Trayvon Martin Shooting – A year of drug use culminates in predictable violence…

    News the "news" will probably not cover about that "white hispanic".

    NBC sued over Trayvon tape

    Good on him...
