An article saying George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted of murdering black teenager Trayvon Martin last year, was arrested while in Ferguson is fake, reports Jack Phillips, Epoch Times.
“So George Zimmerman was arrested in ferguson tryin to reenact what he did to trayvon Martin’you lyin.’”
— A person on Twitter
“Florida neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman, who was acquitted in July of 2013 of all charges related to the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was arrested Wednesday morning in Ferguson, Missouri after an altercation outside of a Dunkin’ Donuts, where Zimmerman allegedly aimed a handgun at two black teenagers who confronted him,” the bogus article reads.

“While defendant intended to post the home address of George Zimmerman, he actually posted the address of plaintiffs Elaine McClain and David McClain,” the complaint reads.

Re: the Trayvon Martin case:
“I won’t react to something just because I’m supposed to, because I’m an African-American”
To which Bryant replied:
“I won’t react to something just because I’m supposed to, because I’m an African-American,” he said. “That argument doesn’t make any sense to me. So we want to advance as a society and a culture, but, say, if something happens to an African-American we immediately come to his defense? Yet you want to talk about how far we’ve progressed as a society? Well, we’ve progressed as a society, then don’t jump to somebody’s defense just because they’re African-American. You sit and you listen to the facts just like you would in any other situation, right? So I won’t assert myself.”
For those that remember early 20th Century Harlem Renaissance artist Zora Neale Huston, whose contribution to Ethnography, Anthropology, and Literature made her a rock star in her time (Zora’s popularity reemerged in the 1980s when Alice Walker reintroduced her work) not many remember that Huston’s political views were contrary.
Neale was a conservative. Unlike many of her literary peers, she rejected notions of group identity, grievance, and identity politics. Though we’re not suggesting Kobe Bryant is a conservative, Neale and Bryant both declined to speak for the “black community”, believing that we should be beyond that. Once asked to comment on a news-making achievement of a fellow African American (just because she, too, is black) her response was not unlike Bryant’s. It was identical. Huston said dismissively (though not an exact quote, this is the gist of her comment):
“When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, do you think white people jumped for joy (that one of their race made this achievement)?’
Which expresses the same common-sense rejection of racial grouping Kobe Bryant expresses here:
“Well, we’ve progressed as a society, then don’t jump to somebody’s defense just because they’re African-American. You sit and you listen to the facts just like you would in any other situation, right?”
“I am not tragically colored. There is no great sorrow dammed up in my soul, nor lurking behind my eyes. . . . I do not belong to the sobbing school of Negrohood who hold that nature has somehow given them a lowdown dirty deal and whose feelings are all hurt about it.”
“I believe that the police misinterpreted me and that I may have misspoken about certain facts in my statement to police…”Posted: December 9, 2013
claims he pointed gun at her recants gun assault accusation
Chuck Ross reports: The woman who told police that George Zimmerman pointed a gun at her face has recanted her story and is now saying “I want to be with George,” according to a court affidavit published by the Orlando Sentinel.
Last month, Samantha Scheibe called 911 to report that Zimmerman had pointed a shotgun at her face during a domestic disturbance sparked after she asked the former neighborhood watchman to move out of her house.
The 911 call from last month’s incident captures Scheibe yelling at Zimmerman, “You point your gun at my fricking face.” Scheibe said that Zimmerman also pushed her out of her residence and was smashing her belongings during the argument. Zimmerman claimed that Scheibe started the fight and denied pointing a weapon at her.
Now Scheibe has contacted Zimmerman attorney Jayne Weintraub to recant her accusation.
National Media, Slow to Report on Epidemic of Race Crimes, Dismisses Relevance with Breathtaking Ignorance: “Is it Really a Trend”?Posted: November 22, 2013
Knockout Trend Among Teenagers: Is It Real?
Imagine if roving gangs of violent young white hoodlums were preying on unsuspecting black people in the streets, knocking them unconscious at random- think the headlines would read like this?
Or would it be immediately treated as a National Crisis, worthy of 24-hour-a-day coverage?
TIME asks: “Local media outlets are reporting a supposed ‘Knockout’ game among teenagers: total strangers have to be knocked out with just one punch. But is it really a trend?”
George Zimmerman has been arrested again today November 18, 2013. A new George Zimmerman mug shot has been released moments ago by local authorities Monday 11-18-13. But why was Zimmerman arrested, does it involve his former wife, and is he being represented by an attorney?
George Zimmerman was arrested and booked, local police tell news. The arrest stemmed from allegations inside a home in Apopka, Florida. The owner of the home has not been identified to news. Police tell news that they received a 911 call, reporting an alleged “disturbance”. When Seminole County Sheriff’s officers arrived, they arrested Zimmerman. He was then transported to a local area jail. Read the rest of this entry »
Time to be honest about racial violence
Thomas Sowell writes: One of the reasons for being glad to be as old as I am is that I may be spared living to see a race war in America. Race wars are often wars in which nobody wins and everybody ends up much worse off than they were before.
Initial skirmishes in that race war have already begun, and have in fact been going on for some years. But public officials pretend that it is not happening, and the mainstream media seldom publish it at all, except in ways that conceal what is really taking place.For
American society, a dangerous polarization has set in. Signs of this polarization over the years include opposite reactions between blacks and whites to the verdict in the O. J. Simpson murder case, the “rape” charges against Duke University students, and the trials resulting from the beating of Rodney King and the death of Trayvon Martin.
More dangerous than these highly publicized episodes over the years are innumerable organized and unprovoked physical attacks on whites by young black gangs in shopping malls, on beaches, and in other public places all across the country today.
RIGHT ON: Gun Group Steps Up, Offers Free Shotguns to Florida Residents to Protect Themselves from CrimePosted: September 25, 2013
Members of the Florida chapter of the Armed Citizen Project, which is based in Texas, began advertising the program on fliers in the Sunshine Gardens neighbourhood near Orlando. The neighbourhood is about 25 miles (40 kilometres) south of Sanford, a city thrust into an international debate about self-defence and race after neighbourhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old.
Zimmerman says he shot the teen in self-defence and was cleared of all charges in Martin’s death.
Ron Ritter, president of the Armed Citizen Project of Florida, said the donated guns will reach their new owners through participating dealers or gun shops. The new owners will have to pass a background check and also complete gun safety training, Ritter said Wednesday. Read the rest of this entry »
