“We all know it was wrong. It was wrong. . .First of all, you're not a professional to profile someone. . . This guy's a (effing) mall cop,” Jay Z declared of Zimmerman.
Jay Z must be a mind reader because evidence gathered in the case, some of which the defense wasn’t allowed to present during the trial, revealed Trayvon wasn’t such an innocent 17 year old teen. He was suspended three times from school and stolen jewelry and a burglary tool were found in his locker. Text messages from Trayvon’s cell phone also showed he liked to fight, wanted to buy a gun and get high on codeine. Text messages exchanged with a friend, who told Trayvon how to make Lean or Purple Drank, using fruit juice, Skittles and cough syrup with codeine in it like Robitussin. Martin’s toxicology report showed his liver was damaged consistent with drug abuse caused by Lean.
I guess Jay Z didn’t bother with the fact the FBI’s investigation last year into the incident concluded race had nothing to do with Zimmerman killing Trayvon. And Jay Z couldn’t be bothered with the fact some jurors said there wasn’t enough evidence to convict Zimmerman and the case should never have been brought to trial.
As a former drug dealer, who’s been shot three times, blacks shouldn’t care what Jay Z thinks. Jay Z has no credibility talking about racism or violence, because as Lemon noted, hip-hop and rap stars like Jay Z glorifying a thug culture is “making a lot of people rich, just not you.” In fact Jay Z’s music incites young black males to violence. Maybe Jay Z should lose some sleep over that.
Did Travyon Martin deserve to die? No. Could Travyon Martin’s upbringing and not enough parental attention have had something to do with his death? Possibly. Could Trayvon have thrown the first punch and tragically died as a result of it? Yes.
What angers many blacks about the Zimmerman trial is it uncorked how fed up Americans are with all the excuses so called “black leaders,” Democrats and the media always make for the black race’s failings. A violent, black sub culture that glorifies crime, misogyny, profanity, and hatred of whites is driving the high crime, high school dropout rates, illegitimate births, poverty and government dependency rooted in the black race. We need more black people like Don Lemon to have the audacity to repudiate this behavior, not apologize for it.
