We have all heard about Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman. We have been treated, via the MSM, to everything said by Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. We even found out than an NBC news producer doctored a 9-1-1 call tape in an attempt to make Zimmerman sound like a racist. NBC News President Steve Capus told Reuters, “…it was determined that the person had cut the video clip down to meet a maximum time requirement for the length of the segment and inadvertently edited the call in a way that proved misleading.” Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure. If you believe that, I have the deed to a certain NYC bridge in which you may be interested.
We do not have any clear audio evidence that Zimmerman uttered a racial slur as is still maintained. Nor do we yet have clear evidence, by voice analysis, confirming who was calling for help in an apparent fight on an audio tape. But we do know that NBC News altered a transcript of the 9-1-1 call.
The MSM started its misrepresentation with an out-of-date photo that suggested Martin at the moment of his death was a tiny preteen But he was a 6’2″ 17-year-old. Given that the alleged crime happened in 2012 when Martin was 17, it might have been more responsible for the MSM to publish a current photograph. Further, Martin was suspended from school for drugs, as well as possessing a burglary tool.
We also got this little nugget from the MSM: white Hispanic. Just what is a “white Hispanic,” and what does that have to do with anything? Although it normally does not use such terminology for people of mixed ancestry (Barack Hussein Obama being a good example), the MSM, when its narrative of white-on-black crime was endangered by information that Zimmerman had a Latino mother, came up with white Hispanic.
Despite loud MSM claims that a police video proved that Zimmerman did not have head injuries as described in the police report, careful analysis of the video shows a visible head injury on Zimmerman.
And now this. In an article titled ”Black Male Shoots Unarmed Hispanic, Remains Free, Media Mum” we learn that at a Taco Bell in Phoenix, AZ, a black male, whose name has not been released, shot and killed Daniel Adkins, a Hispanic. A 22-year-old man and his girlfriend ordered food at the Taco Bell drivethrough and were told to pull up while their order was prepared. At the same time, Adkins stepped around a corner into the path of the vehicle. Angry words were exchanged between Adkins and the driver. They got into an altercation and Adkins was shot once by the driver. Adkins died at the scene. The driver, a 22-year-old black male, called police but has not been arrested. The couple claimed that Adkins had a metal pipe that he swung at them, but it turns out he was holding a dog leash with his yellow lab, Lady, on the leash. A metal pipe or bat was never located. Yet the driver is claiming self defense.
Adkins lived with his mother and father. He was 29, but his family says he was mentally disabled and has the mental capacity of a 12-year-old. He didn’t drive, and walked wherever he went.
“He needs to be behind bars. I’ll never see my brother again,” says Adkins’ sister Marina Reyes. “If he felt that my brother was threatening him, he could have easily just rolled up the window and called the cops.” She continued, “So he’s saying self defense, then where’s the weapon? Where’s the pipe? They didn’t find anything on my brother.”
My questions are: (1) Where are the New Black Panther Party, the Congressional Black Caucus, Spike Lee, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton on this one? Is not Adkins dead? Was he not shot? (2) Where is the MSM on this one? Where is NBC? (3) Does Adkins’ mental capacity enter into this situation? Why have Jackson and Sharpton not questioned what angry words a mentally disabled Hispanic could say?
Can I conclude that since the crime committed was “black-on-white Hispanic” rather than “white Hispanic-on-black,” the New Black Panther Party, the Congressional Black Caucus, Spike Lee, Jackson, Sharpton, MSM, and NBC will not find this interesting and ignore it? Please cite sources of evidence of New Black Panther Party, the Congressional Black Caucus, Spike Lee, Jackson, Sharpton, MSM, or NBC interest.
In both cases, the best course would be to show patience, to carefully examine ALL evidence available. Is that what happened in Sanford, FL? Noo. The MSM has again embarrassed itself, and the black activist leadership, in and out of government, has demagogued the Martin case while ignoring the Adkins case, alienated the country, and set back racial relations for some time. And Obama weighed in on the Martin case in an utterly incoherent fashion. Would Obama’s other son look like Adkins?
But that’s just my opinion.
