n New York, Trayvon Martin’s parents moved from a day of TV interviews into the spotlight of a well-attended march in support of their call for the arrest of George Zimmerman.
While the crowd was well short of a million, reports said hundreds of thousands of people filled Union Square Park in Lower Manhattan before filing out to other locations around the city…The crowd called loudly for the arrest of George Zimmerman, who Mr Martin’s father accused of racially “profiling” his son.
At least there are SOME white faces in that crowd which implies that the racist tones aren’t as strong as many of the gatherings in Florida.
Still with history as my guide this is a race riot brewing, and its spreading. Be wary, also with history as our guide be especially wary if you are black, as such riots are often spurred on by race issues, it almost always seems to be black-on-black violence when things go pear shaped.
It could be that Mr. Zimmerman is a racist, vindictive mall-ninja who wanted to see what it was like to kill somebody. It could be that Mr. Martin was a violent and troubled teen who attempted to kill what he thought was an unarmed man.
I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t think Mr. Martin will be the last person killed here…
