Bill Cosby and Charles Barkley Comments on the Zimmerman Verdict
When I first heard the media giving their intake on the comments Bill Cosby and Charles Barkley made regarding the George Zimmerman verdict; I was outraged. But I did what I usually do, I went online and watched video of exactly what both men said, and how they said it. If I would’ve just accepted the way the media portrayed Mr. Cosby and Mr. Barkley comments; I would’ve branded them as UNCLE TOMS.
I agree with both men that the prosecution didn’t prove their case of Second Degree Murder or Manslaughter. In my brain, a clear case could’ve been argued of Felony Negligence; but the Judge disallowed Third degree Manslaughter, which took all other lesser charges off the table.
My point on speaking on this subject is because we as a people hastily demonize others, simply because we accept the media sensationalizing an event just to get ratings.
Here’s where the RACE CARD gets played. The media want clear thinking Americans (emphasis on clear thinking) to believe Trayvon Martin was running away from George Zimmerman; stopped and ran back towards a man that outweighed him at least fifty pounds and began pounding on him using ground and pound techniques, which were the same techniques that George Zimmerman trained for everyday. It doesn’t make sense.
As I have stated before, I begrudgingly accept RACISTS like Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter to wholeheartedly accept the scenario cited above; but it makes my blood boil when BLACK UNCLE TOMS agree with these RACISTS.
