Fanning the flames of manufactured racismSpike Lee, director of movies like "Do The Right Thing" and "Jungle Fever", jumped head first into the Trayvon Martin hysteria, retweeting the wrong address for George Zimmerman, the shooter in this whole tragedy.
The fact is is that Lee shouldn't have sent it out at all. He didn't "do the right thing" but instead did the dumb thing. Everyone from Lee, Al "Tawana Brawley" Sharpton, Jesse "Hymie Town" Jackson, the New Black Panthers, and the President himself have fanned the racial flames in this case. For the President, this is just another in a long line of jumping into local law enforcement cases in which he does not calm the high emotions, but further enflames them. Once a community agitator, always a community agitator.
Just as in the Duke Lacrosse Team rape case, and the Atlanta Olympic bombings, the media have created a firestorm based on little more than their own biases, and their own desire to manufacture news. In both of those cases the media got it completely wrong. The Duke players and Richard Jewell (who was labeled "the Olympic Bomber") were both completely cleared of any wrong-doing. Even after those cases, the media issued no mea culpas or did any introspection on what went wrong. It didn't matter whom had gotten hurt, or had their reputations destroyed. No, they just moved on down the road to the next big ratings getter.
To further their racial bent, they have gone as far as to label Zimmerman a "white hispanic" because of his mixed heritage. What the hell is that?! If Zimmerman had been half white and half black, would the have labeled him a "white black"? Hell no! We would not have heard of this case at all. The template is set, and the media is not going to come off of it.
As more information comes out we are finding that the actual facts of the case are not as cut and dry as the initial hysterical reporting intimated - that this was a racially motivated shooting. The truth is, we don't know what the motive was. The more information that comes out through witnesses and from the initial reports, the murkier the initial media reports become.
We have learned that Trayvon Martin was on top of Zimmerman and that it was Zimmerman that was screaming for help, and not Martin. The thing is is that the investigation is ongoing and not all the facts are out there as yet.
It may be that Zimmerman will be charged and go to court. But what if the jury finds Zimmerman not guilty. Have Spike Lee and all of these race-hustlers now set the stage for another "Rodney King Riot" for Central Florida? Will they spread across the country because of the absolute media malpractice that has been, once again, been perpetrated on the public?
Let's hope calm heads prevail
