Scary Black Dude!
Lately, I've been hearing a lot of Zimmerman's supporters complaining that none of the pictures of Trayvon are recent. Okay, so I decided to post a recent picture of Trayvon taken a few weeks before he was MURDERED.
This is the young man that Zimmerman's supporters have labeled a thug and big scary looking black dude. He looks like an average teenager. I don't know too many young males that put on a suit and tie to go to the store in the rain, unless they work in a office and are on their way to work.
Heck, I guess I would look suspicious to Zimmerman if he saw me in my housecleaning gear. Yep, head rag, sweats or jeans, big baggy T-shirt, a HOODIE, and flipflops. I pay good money for my clothes and I'm not about to mess them up mopping, dusting, and scrubbing. Leave it to Beaver's mom was full of dung.
It's a few things wrong with that going by appearances, innocent people are targeted and wind up dead. Because according to Geraldo's stereotype, all BLACK males are SCARY. It wouldn't matter if Trayvon had been dressed in a suit.
Nope! Because they would find something wrong with that. There was a time when all Black males dressed in slacks and suits, but that didn't stop them from being harrassed by the police or stereotyped. So, should black males just wear their birthday suits and call it a day?
Has Geraldo or Bill looked in the mirror lately? I mean since we're judging people by their appearance someone should tell them how they look. Geraldo looks pretty scary himself with that ridiculous mustache.
And Lord knows if they can stand the sight of Jesse Lee Peterson...I'm just saying. Peterson could audition for a part in a monster flick and they wouldn't even have to apply any makeup.
I don't cuss, but Geraldo and Bill can pluck themselves and the horse they rode in on!
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
