Trayvon Martin Found Guilty

Trayvon Martin found guilty was the final verdict of the court. After more than two weeks of media coverage and the nation tuned in to a live version of court TV, I wish I could say that I was surprised at the final verdict but that would be a lie. The verdict reminded me of the story  told by one black comedian back in the day when this man was caught in bed in the very act of cheating on his wife with his girl friend. The cheating husband turned to his wife and said, “Go ahead and believe your lying eyes.” There are lying eyes, lying ears and lying lips. There exist two facts about lies. One minister frequently states that lies have wings but no legs hence a lie just keeping flying because it has no legs to land on. Then there is another fact which reports that a “lie” can go half way around the world before the truth every gets to the front door.

Reportedly the judge in the Trayvon Martin case set the perimeters where the words “racial profiling” could not be used. Funny more than a year ago the only card that was available and caused this case to go to trial was the race card. There really was a deck of race cards that was dealt from the top of the deck; the race card was also dealt from the bottom and the center of the deck. Matter of fact all 52 cards were tainted with the blood of Trayvon Martin and the race card except for the two “jokers” that were pulled from the deck. The country was duped from the very beginning because America continues to live a “lie” that race does not matter and the country does not have racial problems.

Eleven million Hispanic and other minorities are being denied citizenship because of the fear that “one man one vote” will change the complexion of our nation. Let us not forget that the Hispanic’s land was taken from them more than 150 year ago and now they are just returning back to their land. Hispanics and Blacks were in the Americas long before European whites. The prisons are filled to the brim with Black, Brown and Red Americans but the nation and “justice” is color blind. The nation’s farm bill has been hijacked so that the poor will be denied food assistance. There is an all out assault nation wide on women, voters and “equal opportunity”. And last but certainly not least America has a black man on the Supreme Court who is anti-black, anti-brown and anti-red and an Afro-American President who can’t “pass gas” after more than four years of indigestion brought on by a daily diet of political grid lock, racial-base animosities and disrespect of the man and the office.

What was not said or addressed during the past two weeks was why Trayvon Martin was guilty. He was guilty of “being born black” while walking in a white community. Trayvon Martin was guilty of defending himself while being followed by a “creepy” individual with a gun and a “wanna be” cop. Trayvon Martin was guilty of looking like those Black burglars in the community that struck fear in the hearts and minds of the white women of the community and jury. Trayvon Martin was guilty of being the subject of lying eyes, lying ears, lying lips and lying hearts. But in the words of another man whose name was Martin, “Truth crushed to the earth shall rise again.”

  1. Reblogged this on bfjd and commented:
    Common sense is very lacking due to the racism being fired up by Obama and his minions so we the people will not unite against his regime as was done in Egypt recently. Travon Martin attacked first and was in the wrong. Race has nothing to do with it. We all profile all the time in making decisions. Its called common sense. Racial profiling is a stupid idea put out by Obama. Obama is the most racist.

  2. I read and then re-read your blog. I found it to be well written and on point. I agree. Trayvon Martin was guilty. Guilty of being black while walking in a white community. George Zimmermann was not the only one to be found innocent. Trayvon Martin was innocent as well. The only difference is racism. There is and has never been justice for all. Yes. Justice is fair. Unfortunately it is not fair for ‘us.’

  3. All I can say is this: America should be praising the Lord that Black Americans still have the audacity to “hope.” Imagine if we were truly hopeless? Hopeless people are fearless, rebellious people, and prone to do just about anything when they are challenged and disrespected continuously. White America should be freakin’ scared to death after the inhumane treatment they’ve perpetuated against Black America, and done so with straight faces and lying tongues; the only reason they are not scared to death of us is because we proven continuously that we are an eternally hopeful and forgiving segment of a nation that truly has demonstrated demonic traits. Not the godly traits they boastfully lie to the world about.

    Despite a long history of racism and one that proves Black people are not dealt with fairly in America’s halls of justice and that our blood stains are indelibly written in this country’s earth, some part of us refuses to become hopeless. Sure, because of a blood-stained history, I could not totally believe the jury would find that Zimmerman-lying-son-of-a-gun innocent of Black kid,Trayvon Martin’s murder. And in speaking with my brother two days before the decision, it was clear he didn’t believe it either. YET, somewhere inside, I HAD THE NERVE, THE AUDACITY TO HOPE!!! I hoped that because I have humanity, a conscience and heart, that the jury would have the same. One part of me said to the other part of me: “You so stupid! You know damn well, that white guy WILL NEVER be found guilty of killing that kid! So don’t even trip!” But, I did trip–I did hope; thinking that just maybe, THIS TIME, “they” would treat a Black person right and tell the truth: “ZIMMERMAN IS A SORRY A## LIAR, A COWARD, A PITIFUL EXCUSE FOR A MAN — AND WE FIND HIM GUILTY!”

    But, no, I, like many of my other Black brothers and sisters, still have a fountain that flows with hope– we would truly self destruct if we didn’t allow that fountain of hope to flow–even just a little.

    So, my dear white Americans must know this: Black folks are long suffering…we learned it from the Most High God. We learned something else, too: #1 THE TRUTH CRUSHED TO THE EARTH SHALL RISE. #2 VENGEANCE IS MINE–SAID THE LORD; #3 TRAYVON MARTIN’S BLOOD WILL NOT BE WASHED FROM ZIMMERMAN’S HANDS–AND SOUL. #4 SOONER OR LATER, ZIMMERMAN MUST CONFESS AND WILL HAVE TO PAY. #5 WHAT THE ENEMY MEANT FOR EVIL, GOD WILL TURN AROUND FOR GOOD… #6 TRAYVON’S MOM AND DAD ARE THE EPITOME OF GRACE AND STRENGTH, AND GOD’S HAND IS DIVINELY ON THEIR LIVES AND HIS PRESENCE IN THEIR SPIRIT.

    Say Amen, White America, and be thankful to God; cause certain unrepented behaviors won’t be tolerated always…and certainly not by the Heavenly Father– soon, the seeds sown will blossom. Watch, and pray.

  4. I remember being taught that “Black is Beautiful” but now being Black equals being guilty before the evidence can be presented. I was naive to think that GZ would be found guilty. My heart was broken when I saw the “Not Guilty” at the bottom of the screen. To say that this entire issue was not racially motivated is like teaching a child that 2 + 2 = 5 when we all know that it is totally wrong. It’s a week later and I’m still sadden by the verdict. But what can I do? Continue to teach my child that BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL; that bad things sometimes happen to good people; that you will be judge by others before they even know you; the truth about how WE entered America…… The list can go on and but I know that I must continue to raise a God-fearing child that will have faith, hope and love that will help her overcome any kind of obstacle. Because at the end of the day, I AM TRAYVON MARTIN and SHE WILL BE TOO one day.
