When Gasoline Meets Fire
July 15, 2013
I was going to stay out of the Treyvon Martin case because it was and should have remained a local law enforcement issue. Since the case threatens to escalate into the biggest civil unrest event in American history, it is time to speak out.
The extremist leader of the New Black Panthers Party, Samir Shabazz, has predicted “unrest all over America” if George Zimmerman was acquitted. Following the acquittal of Zimmerman, I sit in fear of this statement. Although the Shabazz group denied that it was organizing riots in light of claims its leader had vowed to burn down white communities. Apparently, some are making good on this threat as Oakland and Dallas are reporting protests and minor civil unrest over the Zimmerman acquittal at the time of this writing. I just hope and pray that the backlash to the verdict is confined to peaceful protest
New Black Panthers leader Samir Shabazz, who can be described as nothing but an Obama stooge and DOJ operative for trying to stir up racial division in this country by inundating several numerous Internet sites in which he states, “This time we’re doing it right… This time we’re not burning down our communities. This time we’re going out to Whitey’s suburbs and burning down HIS community. We’re going to make Whitey feel the pain.” This radicalized leader has also advocated the killing of white babies as well the burning of white churches.Why would any reasonable person listen to this insanity?
To Samir Shabazz, I ask you a question. Even if George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin and race was a contributing factor, then what does the killing of white babies and the burning down of white homes have to do with rectifying Zimmerman’s misdeeds?
There was a time in this country when strong leadership from the Black community, which flew in the face of the establishment, was needed and deserved. Visionaries, such as Dr. King, Rosa Parks and Larry Pinkney knew that violence was not the answer to our racial challenges. If Dr. King had followed the radical path being pursued by Shabazz, race relations would still be in the same state they were in at the beginning of the 20th century.
