Trayvon Martin was walking home -- II
Judged... convicted... executed...

    1. The use of personal characteristics or behavior patterns to make generalizations about a person, as in gender profiling.
    2. The use of these characteristics to determine whether a person may be engaged in illegal activity, as in racial profiling.
The trial of George Zimmerman, which really turned out to be the trial of Trayvon Martin, only proved the power of prejudice and cultural ambiguity. When we fail to recognize our own blindness to preconceived notions on limited information, we wind up with the wrong conclusions. Remember the poem, "The Blind Men and the Elephant?" The last words of the poem sum up the jury's social disabilities.

And so these men of Indostan
Disputed loud and long,
Each in his own opinion
Exceeding stiff and strong,
Though each was partly in the right,
And all were in the wrong!

The jury could not get past their preconceived fears and perceptions and were thus willing to believe an account which conformed to their prejudices. The grey areas of the case were filled in with these misnomers. One thing was clear: the incident was provoked by George Zimmerman, and thus he should have to prove without a shadow of doubt, Trayvon attacked him. That was not done.

In the state of New Jersey, a fellow African-American Pastor and friend, led a courageous and relevant campaign to end racial profiling by the state police. The Rev. Reginald Jackson, of Orange, New Jersey, often noted the New Jersey Turnpike was beleaguered with the plague of racial profiling. State police officers were targeting people of color so much so the term "driving while Black" was coined. Why? It was discovered that the drug trafficking criminals were using the turnpike as the main transport for drugs. State Troopers suspected that it would be mostly be African-Americans who were involved in this scheme. Results? An extraordinary number of African-Americans were being pulled over and cars searched without cause other than their suspicions, and being African-American. Their prejudice caused them to surmise that if 'we detain enough African-Americans, we are bound to find the drugs simply because, in our view, it is African-Americans who are the culprits.'

Profiling is essential in crime prevention. If you don't profile you won't apprehend the criminal with any degree of sufficiency. Profiling is also a natural means to determine the identity and pattern of an offender. Profiling is used by merchants who market their products with the sole purpose of profit. Yet, we must not let profiling, and our bias, paint with a broad brush a whole society of people, and then act indiscriminately with the assumption of those persons being guilty. It is exceedingly dangerous when armed individuals act as vigilantes without proper instruction and training. To assume a minuscule percentage of a specific part of society is the character of all that society is ridiculous. To use that jaded analysis, and then superimpose the worst of those persons, upon all the others – as the standard of all other persons of their ethnicity – then target them, and in so doing, impede their civil rights, is patently racist. The African-American community is outraged, and rightfully so, over the targeting of Trayvon Martin, or the racial profiling, of Trayvon Martin. I rarely agree – if ever – with the president, but his comments were accurate when he said, "If the roles were reversed would the verdict been the same?"

Yet the evidence in the Trayvon Martin case is not as conclusive nor as clear as the evidence targeting or "racial profiling" by the Abortion industry of African-Americans. Life Dynamics out of Denton, Texas produced a report validating the claim of "Black Genocide" by many pro-life advocates, myself included. There were rallies across America for the racial profiling of one Trayvon Martin, but for the 1,786 daily African-Americans targeted and killed by the Abortion industry – which works out to one-thousand-seven-hundred-eighty-six Trayvon Martins every two days, and yes, Mr. President, if you had a son, they'd all look like you – the leadership of the Black community remained purposely silent. The NAACP, Congressional Black Caucus, Rainbow Coalition, and National Action Committee, not only remain silent , but give their tacit endorsement to the systemic killing of African-American babies by Abortion. How pathetic. And speaking of pathetic, Barack Obama, went as far as to say, "God Bless Planned Parenthood!" Mr. President are you saying, 'God Bless Planned Parenthood, the leading Abortion provider who has lead the charge in killing over 20 million African-American babies?'

In the 24 page report produced by Life Dynamics, it empirically proves that in areas where the Black population was 200% over the state's overall average, multiple Abortion clinics are erected. The report reminded me of the Third Reich's campaign in Germany when they were targeting the Jewish Community for extinction via the Final Solution, only this time Gas Chambers and Crematoria, Firing Squads, and Einsatzgruppen, have been substituted by Abortion Clinics and RU46. Isn't it amazing the same company who provided the Zyklon B for the Gas Chambers is the same maker of the oral Abortifactant ru46? The Gestapo now are the quasi doctors who perform these sadistic, calloused murders. Like Trayvon, their conceptions were judged wrongly, seen as an intrusion, and unworthy to have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The unborn were convicted by an unjust law called Roe vs. Wade which circumvents the Declaration of their Independence, and their right to the American Dream. They are executed by the heinous act of pulling apart their arms legs and crushing their skulls. I personally would prefer the Gas Chamber or Firing Squad.

Sadly, in the case of Trayvon Martin's death, the law was not enough to save or exonerate him, and it can also be said the same is the case for the 55 million babies who have been killed – terminated – since Roe vs. Wade in 1973. In both these cases, the unborn and Trayvon, were and are seen as unwanted intruders, and by law, we can kill them. Zimmerman claimed Trayvon was an intrusion in his neighborhood, an attacker of his life, and he had the right to "stand his ground." Like the unborn, Trayvon was not given the opportunity to speak nor clarify his position, possibly refuting the claims against him. Instead, Trayvon was profiled, just like an unwanted pregnancy, full of prejudicial assumptions negatively reflecting their collective worth, character, and potential. 'This intruder will destroy my way of life; it is attacking my future; I can't afford for this to happen to me; this child, this intruder, is up to no good and must be stopped; because – the end justifies the means – the worst is assumed, and the actions to terminate the pregnancy, are justified'.

Sonograms and Amnioscopy testify to the fact that the unborn are persons and that every biology book on the planet will declare life begins at conception. According to the Declaration of Independence, the rights that come from the creator, not from mother or government, are afforded to that child, yet we have denied that right federally since 1973. Shame on us.

The racial profiling by the Abortion industry continues with the help of the NAACP, Congressional Black Caucus, Rainbow Coalition, National Action Committee and every charlatan that politically wants to get ahead by pimping the African-American community. It's long past due for the Black Community to recognize the dissimulation of our perceived gatekeepers of justice.

Now, for all the 'stand-your-ground' supporters and for you who believe George Zimmerman's account of why he killed Trayvon Martin, I am sure you are outraged over Marisa Alexander. I know you will not rest until she is free. And to think it is the same state which exonerated George Zimmerman and convicted Marissa Alexander, proves we indeed have a long way to go in race relations!
