So Trayvon Martin got shot. Why did he get shot? Racism. Why did his killing get covered up? Racism.
It's actually not much of a mystery.
Unless you're a right wing blogger! In that case...
Clearly the lesson we need to take from this tragedy is that Barack Obama is a racist.
I shit you not.
... if we had a president instead of a race baiter, he'd look nothing like Obama.
Why should the leader of the free wold dive head first into a racial controversy that has been blown far, far out of proportion by those who seek to use the death of a young black man for their own personal agendas?
A Hispanic man shoots a black kid where no one knows the exact circumstances in which the shooting occurred and where we are likely never to know what happened. Instead of waiting for the facts, narratives have replaced truth and we have a full blown racial incident when it isn't even clear that race was a factor.
Obama could have said - should have said - "no comment." Instead, he sought out an opportunity to stoke the fires of race hate.
What do Trayvon’s race and looks have to do with anything? The political opportunism undercuts the very “seriousness” Obama purports to display.
I THINK OBAMA DOESN'T CARE ABOUT DEAD BLACK MALE FETUSES BECAUSE HE CAN'T EXPLOIT THEIR DEATHS FOR VOTES.
OBAMA IS SCUM. RACE-BAITING SCUM.
Rush Limbaugh did an excellent job of demonstrating the extent to which Modern Conservatism depends on misogyny. These horrible idiots are wonderfully adept at showing how much Modern Conservatism also depends on racism.
The garbage explanations for why Martin's murder is not racially based would be comical, if they were not so horrifying. Malkin:
That the killing can't be "racist" because the killer is "Hispanic" is... nuts.
Geraldo Rivera should quash that straight up. But besides that, uh, I've lived in South Florida?
South Florida is not integrated, in the sense that the Balkan nations have in the past not always gotten along.
The intensity of the wingnut screeching that "this may be bad, but it's not racial!" is disturbing, but instructive.
Trayvon Martin was murdered because of racism, and the murder was covered up because of racism.
Just face it.
The definition of "racism" is not "calling obvious racism, racism."
No, the definition of racism instead has to do with innocent young teenagers getting murdered.
Let's not pretend this is tricky.
