Well, here it comes, it will be nearly sixteen months to the day since Trayvon Martin made the literally fatal error of committing a continued and sustained assault regardless of his fighting advantage, screams from the victim George Zimmerman, a clear and a present desire of George to get away and even despite a witness saying he was calling the cops, resulting in George having to defend himself and now we go to trial.
I sometimes look back and question why I’ve maintained a daily interest in this case. Despite having little resources I have focused on this case every single day since March 2012. I don’t go out on weekends, I don’t vacation, and I’ve given up any hobbies, recreation and free time to focus on this case and asked for nothing in return from anyone. Why? Is it that I believed a man was being persecuted in the eyes of society, media and judicial system? Perhaps there is some of that. Is it because I have some interest, some cause, and some agenda for which I can use this case to further? If there was I wasn’t aware of it.
I think at first it was my interest previous to this in race, racism, and how society deals with such things which transferred into my attention to this case specifically. After which I looked into it a bit and one of the first things I noticed was how all of the media was ignoring the witness, who was the only witness at the time who gave a local media interview, who saw Trayvon on top of George during Trayvons beat-down of George. After that my interest simply grew into a monster; thousands of hours, hundreds of videos and blog posts, thousands of comments, a hundred gigabyte file, and a whole bunch of behind the scenes stuff you’ll never know about.
My main interest really was how society and the people involved dealt with what some have deemed the “BGI”, that is, the Black Grievance Industry. I find the concept of the BGI limiting and one can’t really explain away or attribute to this concept all actions of those involved and reactions of society, it’s just too complex for that I think. Even the phrase “Scheme Team” and “race card”, are limiting in nature.
If I had to address and try to sum up the racial component as a lesson I’ve learned it’s that white people are simply either weak, scared, apathetic, dismissive, accepting, encouraging or even become active participants in the very thing that got us all here. Very few want to call it what it is, racism, racism against whites and even fewer want to fight it on that front. That’s because of many reasons but one main reason is many people think of racism crudely as something belonging to whites perpetrated mainly unto blacks. They just simply can’t think of it any other way. So when racism is perpetrated unto them, or as in this case unto others, or perceived others, they become as I described above.
So if there is any agenda that can be attributed to me in regards to my interest in this case I suppose it could be that I want to understand that and want to change that but it is something that grew out of interest in this case over time, I did not go into this thinking that, and I certainly did not think early on I would have dedicated so much to all of this and be here writing this today over a year later.
That being said there is the other aspect which has become an interest as well and that is the specifics of the legal case itself and the investigation. This though still plays into what I have described above and no doubt if you have seen some of my criticism of O’Mara you will find that coming through with the most recent example of him crying on Black Entertainment Television for the black “cause”. It was also the myriad amount of mythology, manipulations, spin and lies surrounding nearly every aspect of this case which compelled me to learn everything that one could possibly learn about it. It was out of necessity to deal with racial aspect that I learned everything about the case itself. In fact I believe that many of the things we have seen throughout this case cannot be understood without first understanding the racial aspect.
There is another aspect, George himself. There will always remain the possibility of George being guilty, even of actual murder which the state charges him with but none of us will ever know for sure. I have seen nothing, which I will remind I have seen all there is available to see, which tells me George is guilty of anything. I have listened and considered all the arguments against George and find the majority of them to be absurd. George did nothing wrong. Regardless, none of that really matters. It doesn’t change one way or the other the things I have said and done in this case. If George is guilty in actuality what I have said and done remains as true. None of it is contingent on his guilt or innocence.
With that one can infer that it could be that it really matters not to me if George is found guilty or not guilty. Considering that in and of itself that would be true. But I do not want him to found guilty if it cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt he is guilty. The only sympathy and/or empathy I have for George, his family and friends is what happened to them because of what the Scheme Team, Media and society have done. I have never seen an unknown person in such a local case be so vilified with such volume, so widely and with such charge as I have seen here. George became a vehicle to further the black “cause” and anyone in the way of that are clearly the real racists or so we are to believe.
For those who feel that way it seems all is contingent on the jury’s decision, all hope and effort for that one final moment when the decision is read for all to hear. Not for me. For me the injustice occurred when the first prosecutor, Norm Wolfinger, “removed himself” from the case back in March 2012. From then on it was just a matter of course.
With all of that and for other reasons I don’t even want to partake in any way of watching or commenting on the trial itself. I don’t need to see or even know its result. What we have seen here in this case will remain after it is over and regardless of its final result. But I have made the decision I will be around to which comments and posts of mine on my blog will continue however blog posts will not be daily.
One would think words of encouragement and hope should be placed here as an end to this post. I find such statements trite. But if you have to force one out of me it is I hope the friends and family of George can remain strong as they have been for their own sakes. And if George is not guilty in actuality then I hope for the best for him as well and even if he is guilty in actuality he deserved better than what he got from society, the media and the State of Florida.
