You know it and I know it, Trayvon’s death had nothing to do with race, or hatred. The story of his death is rather unremarkable when you compare it with any of the multitude that happen in Chicago on a daily basis. One person of color kills another person of color, that normally doesn’t even make the local nightly news.
Certainly the national news doesn’t get involved, Jesse and Al don’t get involved, and for dang sure the president doesn’t get involved. There is something much more sinister at work here, can you say Andrew Breitbart?
You know why he was murdered. He said he had some videos to release showing Obama was all about ‘racial division’ and class warfare that would be very damaging to the faux president. Well, he literally dropped dead just after the witching hour on the very morning of the day he said he was going to release the videos. That’s a bigger story in and of itself than the Trayvon Martin shooting.
How about this story that you probably never heard, unless you looked deeper in the news than ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, NYT, Washington Post, LA Times, etc., etc., etc..
No, you’d have to go to the DrudgeReport, BeforeItsNews, InfoWars.com and other alternate websites and blogs. This is stunning when contrasted with the news coverage of Trayvon’s death. This tells you there is something sinister going on in this country, something evil…and you know the major news media is a part of it!
Hello. Don’t recognize me? That’s OK; I understand.
My name was Antonio West. I was the 13-month old child who was shot in the face at point blank range by two black teens, who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot.
I think my murder and my mommy’s wounding made the news for maybe a day, and then disappeared.
A Grand Jury of my mommy's peers from Brunswick, Georgia ruled the black teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty... too bad it was me who got the death sentence from my killers instead, because Mommy didn’t have the money they demanded.
See, my family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder wasn’t ruled a ‘hate crime’.
Oh, and President Obama didn’t take a single moment to acknowledge my murder. He couldn’t have any children who could possibly look like me - so why should he care?
I’m one of the youngest murder victims in our great Nation's history, but the media didn’t care to cover the story of my being killed in cold blood.
There isn’t a white equivalent of Al Sharpton, because if there was he would be branded a ‘racist’. So no one’s rushing to Brunswick, Georgia to demonstrate and demand ‘justice’ for me. There’s no ‘White Panther’ party, either, to put a bounty on the lives of the two black teens who murdered me.
I have no voice, I have no representation, and unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat innocently in my stroller - I no longer have my life.
Isn’t this a great country?
So while you’re out seeking ‘justice for Trayvon’, please remember to seek ‘justice’ for me. Tell your friends about me, tell you families, get tee-shirts with my face on them, and make the world pay attention, just like you did for Trayvon.
I won’t hold my breath.
I don’t have to anymore.
