The Zimmerman jury will begin deliberating again this morning at 9 am eastern time. I am still hopeful for a relatively quick not-guilty verdict. My optimism has been somewhat diminished since yesterday however.
The race-baiters should be praying for an acquittal. They can use that to reinforce the sense of racial injustice that they pimp for a living. They’ll get lots of mileage from it.
If George Zimmerman is convicted there will be celebrations and probably a few riots as some people use it as an excuse to go on a looting spree. Nothing says “Justice for Trayvon” like pillaging the local electronics store.
But a conviction will make Zimmerman a victim of racial injustice. The race-baiters don’t want that because it could trigger a long-overdue backlash.
Segregation ended half a century ago but racial politics has been frozen in time since then. People like Al Sharpton have based their entire careers on racial grievance-mongering. Meanwhile the quality of life in our inner-city black communities has deteriorated. Enough is enough.
Slavery was wrong. Segregation was wrong. Racism is still wrong. But this is the 21st Century.
The Era of White Guilt is over.
