Kerry Washington loses Emmy to Claire Danes, inevitable cries of racism ensue
“Homeland” actress Claire Danes took home the Emmy Award for lead actress in a drama series. One of the nominees she beat out was “Scandal’s” Kerry Washington. Danes is white. Washington is black. Some viewers leapt to the knee-jerk conclusion that raaaaaaaacism was to blame.

The February 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martion might never have happened if school officials in Miami-Dade County had not instituted an unofficial policy of treating crimes as school disciplinary infractions. Revelations that emerged from an internal affairs investigation explain why Martin was not arrested when caught at school with stolen jewelry in October 2011 or with marijuana in February 2012. Instead, the teenager was suspended from school, the last time just days before he was shot dead by George Zimmerman.
Trayvon Martin was not from Sanford, the town north of Orlando where he was shot in 2012 and where a jury acquitted Zimmerman of murder charges Saturday. Martin was from Miami Gardens, more than 200 miles away, and had come to Sanford to stay with his father’s girlfriend Brandy Green at her home in the townhouse community where Zimmerman was in charge of the neighborhood watch. Trayvon was staying with Green after he had been suspended for the second time in six months from Krop High School in Miami-Dade County, where both his father, Tracy Martin, and mother, Sybrina Fulton, lived.
Both of Trayvon’s suspensions during his junior year at Krop High involved crimes that could have led to his prosecution as a juvenile offender. However, Chief Charles Hurley of the Miami-Dade School Police Department (MDSPD) in 2010 had implemented a policy that reduced the number of criiminal reports, manipulating statistics to create the appearance of a reduction in crime within the school system. Less than two weeks before Martin’s death, the school system commended Chief Hurley for “decreasing school-related juvenile delinquency by an impressive 60 percent for the last six months of 2011.” What was actually happening was that crimes were not being reported as crimes, but instead treated as disciplinary infractions.
In October 2011, after a video surveillance camera caught Martin writing graffiti on a door, MDSPD Office Darryl Dunn searched Martin’s backpack, looking for the marker he had used. Officer Dunn found 12 pieces of women’s jewelry and a man’s watch, along with a flathead screwdriver the officer described as a “burglary tool.” The jewelry and watch, which Martin claimed he had gotten from a friend he refused to name, matched a description of items stolen during the October 2011 burglary of a house on 204th Terrace, about a half-mile from the school. However, because of Chief Hurley’s policy “to lower the arrest rates,” as one MDSPD sergeant said in an internal investigation, the stolen jewerly was instead listed as “found property” and was never reported to Miami-Dade Police who were investigating the burglary. Similarly, in February 2012 when an MDSPD officer caught Martin with a small plastic bag containing marijuana residue, as well as a marijuana pipe, this was not treated as a crime, and instead Martin was suspended from school.
Either of those incidents could have put Trayvon Martin into the custody of the juvenile justice system. However, because of Chief Hurley’s attempt to reduce the school crime statistics — according to sworn testimony, officers were “basically told to lie and falsify” reports — Martin was never arrested. And if he had been arrested, he might never have been in Sanford the night of his fatal encounter with Zimmerman.
In fact, the reason Zimmerman was patrolling the townhouse community the night of the February 2012 shooting was that there had been a rash of burglaries in the neighborhood, although there was no indication that Trayvon Martin was involved in any of those crimes.
As for Chief Hurley’s policy, it was the controversy over Martin’s death that accidentally exposed it. In March 2012, the Miami Herald reported on Martin’s troubled history of disciplinary incidents at Krop High. Chief Hurley then launched the internal affairs investigation in an attempt to find out who had provided information to the reporter. During the course of that investigation, MDSPD officers and supervisors described Chief Hurley’s policy of not reporting crimes by students. Chief Hurley was subsequently accused of sexually harassing two female subordinates. He resigned in February, about a year after Trayvon Martin’s death.

I’m afraid to admit that I agree with famed lawyer Alan Dershowitz that the entire prosecutorial team in the trial of George Zimmerman should be disbarred, that they broke every standard rule of our jurisprudence system and falsely accused Zimmerman of second-degree murder, only after the race bait industry unleashed their soulless fury and threats upon Sanford, Fla. If ever there were a more blatant, ill conceived, race-driven prosecution, I am not aware of it.
Sure, all thinking people are very relieved that George Zimmerman was found not guilty by the intelligent, justice-driven women of the jury, in spite of the façade presented by the prosecution and forced by the threat of racism by everyone from President Obama, to Eric Holder, the New Black Panther gangstas, NAACP, excuse makers of every stripe and even the governor of Florida, but still this innocent man who simply defended his life from a violent, life-threatening, bloodying, head-and-face slamming attack by an enraged black man-child has so wrongly paid an inexplicable price financially and emotionally.
The parents of Trayvon Martin get a huge million-dollar-plus payoff from the gated community just to shut them up, and so obviously to fend off the ambulance chaser racist lawyers for the simple fact that their son was guilty of a vicious, violent attack on a man for no good reason whatsoever.
What did the gated community have to do with any of it? Where is a judge capable of making a justice call in this travesty? Does anyone care at all anymore?
The entire system is screwed up.
But George Zimmerman and his entire family, innocent of any wrongdoing, have lost everything and will be in debt for a long, long time for having to fight the trumped-up charges that he “profiled” and/or set out to murder the poor, helpless, dope-smoking, dope-peddling, gangsta wannabe, Skittles hoodie boy.
Dear God in heaven, what has happened to our country and our embarrassing anti-justice court system? I thought judges had ascended to the position of making justice-oriented judgment calls on behalf of the law and We the People they serve. I was wrong.
The mindless hue and cry from Martin’s supporters goes beyond the pale as they wail and squeal that the same thing could happen to their children. Really? You haven’t taught your children not to attack people? If your children don’t attack people, or hang out with the dopers or the gangsta crowd, this simply could not and will not happen to them.
On the other hand, if you fail miserably as a parent and do not teach your children basic politeness and responsible behavior, what happens in the realm of irresponsible, racist behavior could indeed imperil their well-being.
If you haven’t taught your children that non-blacks shouldn’t be referred to as “creepy a– crackers,” then you have exposed your children to trouble just waiting to happen.
It really is just that simple.

‘I got the 30 and I’m coming for that ni**a’: Here Are Some of the Most Disturbing Tweets Following Zimmerman’s Not-Guilty Verdict | TheBlaze.com
It’s hard to believe this is America. I guess it’s legal for people to threaten murder, no? Aren’t these threats race based? Isn’t that racism? Aren’t these animals racists? Why isn’t anybody in positions of authority speaking up or doing something about this? Where is that shithead (Obama) in all this? Oh, that’s right – if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon “NO_LIMIT_NIGGA” Martin (“NO_LIMIT_NIGGA” was little Trayvon’s Twitter Handle).
Meanwhile, over in Chicagoland – 20 shootings and 9 murders of blacks over the 4th of July weekend brought the yearly murder total to over 200 in Chicago. Eh, who cares? Right? Chicago is where blacks are killed by other blacks. Black-on-black murders are okey dokey. Besides, there’s no air time or radio time to be had by race hustlers like Al Sharpton if he were to go to Chicago and open his pie hole to protest black-on-black crimes. Come to think of it, do you remember shitheads like Al Sharpton EVER going into black neighborhoods to protest and bring attention to black-on-black crimes?
For these racists, all black problems are the fault of non-blacks. If it weren’t for non-blacks everything would be just peachy for black people, right? Let’s ask Chicago.
Warning: Some strong language ahead.
Here’s a prediction from New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz:
