There is one reason and one reason alone that Trayvon Martin is dead today and that reason is he attacked a man with a licensed firearm who used it. It’s not pretty – it’s not pleasant – but it’s true.

George Zimmerman did not jump (read attack) Martin. Just the opposite. Martin attacked him. All else notwithstanding, Martin jumped Zimmerman for no defendable reason, and he paid the ultimate price for his ill-conceived decision.

George Zimmerman did not kill Martin because of the color of his skin, and it is a damnable lie to claim otherwise. George Zimmerman shot and killed Martin because Martin was attacking and beating him. The ugly truth is just that simple. To raise the specter of skin color and to clothe the event in vestiges of racialization and a zeitgeist of rampant racism is nothing more than an attempt to obfuscate that single, salient truth.

George Zimmerman was a member of his neighborhood watch. The function of a neighborhood watch is to watch and report suspicious and/or unlawful activities taking place in a particular neighborhood. It was dark, it was raining, and Martin appeared to be acting suspiciously. A neighborhood watch volunteer following for purposes of observation and giving the police accurate information is not an assault on color. I submit it is inculcated denial to not recognize this.

The jury might have been prevented from hearing certain facts about Martin, but those of us in the public weren’t. Space doesn’t permit me to detail all in print as I will in on-air interviews, but suffice it to say the figurative exhumation of Martin in the image of Emmett Till is an affront to even the most ignorant of racialists and morally opprobrious in the truest definition, but it’s obviously not out of character for those eager to do same.

A report released by the Bureau of Justice Statistics shows 8,000-9,000 blacks are murdered in the United States each year, and 93 percent of those murders are committed by other blacks.
Those blacks don't count to people like Haymarket and Obama because they weren't killed by a "white Hispanic", so they can't shamelessly suck every last ounce of demagoguery out of it
