May Your Chains Set Lightly Upon You

Stand Your Ground! Fight to Uphold Amendments V, VI, VII, & VIII of The Constitution

A man was shot and killed in Sanford Florida a month ago. George Zimmerman was on neighborhood watch  patrol in his gated community, and shot and killed Trayvon Martin.

I am reporting this because George Zimmerman does not deny that he did this. He called 911. The police came. He told them what happened. They did not arrest him.

Your opinions don’t matter. What the media said and what you heard and saw on the news doesn’t matter. They are not the prosecutor. You are not the judge or jury.

Amendments V through VIII of The United States Constitution guarantees George Zimmerman the right to have a Grand Jury decide if he should tried for capital or infamous crimes. He has the right to a speedy and public trial by jury of his peers who reside in Sanford or other parts Florida. He has the right to be confronted by witnesses in court. He has the right to Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

Why is the media exploiting  this story? All the facts and evidence have been presented on the TV, radio, and papers. The trial has been held by the public in the streets and around the watercoolers.

How will Zimmerman be tried by an unbiased jury now? Are there twelve people in Florida who haven’t already decided his guilt or innocence?

Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the talking heads have found him guilty. The Black Panthers have decided his punishment and are ready to pay any bounty hunter one million dollars to deliver him to justice.

Not true justice. Not The Constitution. Not the justice of The People as prescribed by the law of the land, but mob mentality, lynch mob justice.

Trayvon Martin is not Emmett Till. Yes, we have a Black president. That doesn’t mean that racism is dead. American Institutionalized Slavery of Africans is dead. Sharecropping is over. Jim Crow is dead and so are most of the people who instituted it. The Civil Rights movement is over and we won it.  William L. Marcy said, “to the victor belong the spoils of the enemy.” We won and got the spoils and the spoils spoiled us.

Trayvon Martin is not the Emmett Till of 20012. I did not know Mr. Till, but I know Black men of his generation. Black men in the south in those days were raised by two parents who took them to church every Sunday and ensured their education in the Gospel. Black men of Emmett Till’s ilk did not get expelled from school for smoking weed. Black men in those days had strong work ethics. They had careers, owned businesses, married women, and supported their families.

They had crosses burned in their front yards. They were called boy and nigger by police officers and their bosses. They were mobbed and lynched for daring to compete with Whites and be successful, for buying homes in White neighborhoods, for looking at White women.

Black people are – people. Black people are not angels.

This is why I believe there will be more Trayvon Martins. Black women; if you don’t want your sons to become Trayvon Martins, I implore you to abstain from sex until you are married. I beseech you to attend church with your family and let the Gospel of God and Jesus Christ govern your lives. Raise your children with your husband and teach your boys to be gentlemen.

If you don’t want your son to be Trayvon Martin; raise him to be Emmet Till.

Every death is a tragedy, but does Trayvon Martin deserve more attention than Aliyah Shell, or Delric Miller? No. Those children were too young to fit the narrative though. The media can’t use them to promote gun control and racial division, so you probably haven’t heard those names before.

There won’t be any rallies on the mall or t-shirts made for those slain babies. The Black Panthers care so much about Black people, but aren’t offering bounties for the killers of those innocent children.

Why?
