Its Not About Race

“And Moses built an altar and called the name of it, The LORD Is My Banner,”               Exodus 17:15

NOTE: For those readers who may not be aware of the Comment and Activity Menu Section, I wrote an update Announcement yesterday regarding the new Courts Post I’m working on now.  It is taking longer than anticipated to follow the subject through to its logical conclusion!  If I find another subject that I believe should be addressed first, I will post it before the Courts Post.  Thank you, Itasca



For those who may not have heard, both the prosecution and the defense in the Zimmerman case declared the case was not about race.

Ample evidence shows that George Zimmerman, of Peruvian and “Afro Peruvian” descent on his mother’s side – self-identified as Hispanic – is not a racist!

Regardless, Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are leading the charge, inciting racial unrest and violence with false cries of White racism against a Black “Child,” in the “Not Guilty” verdict, as too many people are still using the 5 or 6-year-old photo of Trayvon wearing a white hoodie.  Trayvon Martin, at 17, was nearly 6-feet-tall, a former football player, and no longer that small child of 11 or 12-years-old.  It would be more accurate to call him a “Youth.”

Stoking the fires and fanning the flames of racial unrest
from the Presidential White House
in the United States of America,

Mr. Obama reminded America of his declaration at the beginning of this case that, “If I had a son he’d look like Trayvon,” expanding the analogy to, Trayvon “could have been me 35 years ago.”  The psychological ploys used by Mr. Obama are blatant attempts to create the image of Zimmerman killing Obama’s son, and now, of Zimmerman having symbolically killed the youthful, drug-using Obama.

Never mind the facts of the case,

especially the fact that Martin laid-in-wait or circled-back to attack and assault Zimmerman who was not pursuing, nor following, him.  Zimmerman defended his life, through the pain of his broken nose and the excruciating pain that elicited screams; penned-down by Martin straddling him and Martin’s pummeling causing his head to slam repeatedly against the concrete sidewalk, culminating with Martin saying, “You’re gonna die tonight,” as he tried to grab Zimmerman’s gun.

Only then did Zimmerman grab for the gun himself and, in the pain-filled fog of nearing unconsciousness, fire to stop the assault he believed would otherwise end his life.

I know from personal experience that when a man is slamming your head against a block wall, or in Zimmerman’s case a concrete sidewalk, because a man’s fist is exploding against your flesh, your conscious thoughts turn to one goal: ESCAPE.  As your thinking blurs and YOU DO SEE STARS, the instinct for self-preservation kicks-in, and you try to do whatever you can to save your life and stop the pain!!!

It’s called the Right of Self-Defense for a reason.

Every human being has the God-given
Right to defend the life He gives us.

All the evidence supports Zimmerman’s account and denies any speculation that Martin was defending himself.  It is clear, he was the aggressor.  Zimmerman acted in self-defense when he saw no alternative.

Mr. Obama obfuscates and denies the facts in the case as he presumes that his own experiences as a Black Man occurred solely because of his skin color.  Were he open to the truth, he would realize that certain characteristics – yes, self-preservative profiling – will evoke the types of reaction he cites REGARDLESS OF A MAN’S SKIN COLOR.  And, regardless of the woman’s skin color, for that matter!  But his characterization likening Today with the ’60s and before, is not accurate!

See the Manning video, below, for a Black pastor’s candid treatment of natural profiling of a hypothetical Black Youth Hoodie-Wearer in an elevator with a Black Woman.

But, a lone woman of ANY SKIN COLOR riding an elevator with a hooded man OF ANY SKIN COLOR would have heightened apprehension until she could get off the elevator to safety!


Sometimes a news item hits me so strongly that I KNOW it belongs on this site.  Such is the case with Bill O’Reilly – The O’Reilly Factor – and his “Talking Points Memo” speech delivered Monday, July 22, 2013, in response to the speech Mr. Obama delivered to the White House Press Corps in the above video.

In fact, I think it is so important, it is the reason I am interrupting preparation of my Post on the Courts to write this Post and publish the video as quickly as possible.  I had planned to write about the Zimmerman case after completing the Courts article, but O’Reilly’s “Memo” calls for immediate attention!

The “Memo” stands on the Bald Face
of Truth and Moral Principle:

If the video fails:


“Say…whether peace is best preserved by giving energy to the government, or information to the people.  This last is the most certain and most legitimate engine of government.  Educate and inform the whole mass of the people.  Enable them to see that it is their interest to preserve peace and order, and they will preserve them.  And it requires no very high degree of education to convince them of this.  They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.”  Thomas Jefferson


As I prepared this Post, I heard another dynamic, courageous speech, by Dr. James David Manning, a NYC pastor, that stands well with O’Reilly’s.  I also found a video interview of George Zimmerman’s brother and a speech by Glenn Beck.

Dr. Manning tells it like it is to his Congregation!

I have not heard of this pastor before, so I don’t know what his doctrinal approach to the Scriptures is… He is apparently a Conservative Christian.  His comments in this video are worth hearing, whatever his religious beliefs are…

…especially considering the unrelenting efforts of Collectivist/Progressives Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and others, as they use the Zimmerman/Martin tragedy to stoke and fan the flames of racial unrest and division in America through the year-and-a-half-long news cycle surrounding the case of Zimmerman and Martin.

To read the story, and if the video fails:


See the following link for the video interview of George Zimmerman’s brother, Robert Jr., by Piers Morgan on CNN.  Robert withstands Morgan’s relentless attempts to paint his brother as guilty, in spite of the jury’s verdict!  The interview occurred on July 13, after the “Not Guilty” verdict.  Zimmerman admirably presents the facts that led to the jury’s decision to acquit his brother based upon the evidence that he acted in self-defense.


The education intended by Jefferson in the above quote, was that of the principles around which he wrote our Declaration of Independence.  Not the ideas of his contemporary, philosopher Friedrich Hegel, that inspired Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, who in-turn inspired the Collectivist/Progressives in America.

And certainly not the lies of collectivism/progressivism being taught in America for the last century!  [See WHO IS Obama Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4.]  Lies that include the Eugenics proponents who spawned Hitler’s eugenics experiments, birthed Planned Parenthood for the purpose of destroying Black Human Beings whom its founder Margaret Sanger called “UNDESIRABLES,” and who have brought us to genetically modified human beings!!!

They have been tragically and criminally successful in aborting MILLIONS of Babies, targeting Blacks, and in destroying the Black Family – turning Black Youth to murder each other by violence and with drugs.  They have used Black Youth for decades for the collectivist/progressive purpose of inciting them to blame Whites by skin color for their plight and to foment racial division.

A plight caused by White and Black
Collectivist/Progressive Democrats!

Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles
and New York City
are examples.

What reason could they have for deliberately ignoring the ongoing violence and death occurring in Black communities, especially in cities controlled FOR DECADES by Collectivist/Progressive Democrats?

What reason could they have for continuing to incite Blacks – who haven’t heard, or refuse to accept, the truth in the Zimmerman/Martin case – to demonstrate in 100 cities, hoping Whites are assaulted in the aftermath of the Zimmerman verdict?

What reason could there be for governments and the mainstream media ignoring and suppressing the increasing incidents of Black Youth Mobs attacking Whites, with impunity, in cities across the country, other than trying to foment civil war between races and wanting to avoid nationwide coverage until the sparks turn into embers followed by raging flames?

What better way to take the Nation by surprise and by storm, than to suppress the news until the violence is overwhelming?  To plunge our Nation into violence fueled by racial animosity and hatred!

For a video clip and the transcript of an excellent speech by Glenn Beck, on “Who is really dividing the U.S. based on race in the aftermath of the Zimmerman verdict?”:

As Glenn Beck reports, the racism situation is getting better – as Mr. Obama admits – but, it is not gone, yet.  It is to our credit as a Nation and the Blessings of Almighty God, that the efforts to incite a civil war between “races” have not succeeded.

Why not?

Because most Americans really do know that there is only one Human Race, and




The small, prejudiced minorityregardless of skin color – is not enough to bring us to the war the Collectivist/Progressives want to incite.  Praise the LORD!

Why would they want such a disaster?

For an excuse to impose martial law,
throw a net of tyrannical
control over the country,
and end the farce
Constitutional Governance
Post-Constitutional America.


“And call upon Me in the day of distress, I will release you and you will honor Me.”  Psalm 50:15, Stone Tenach

      I don’t know how to make a Pingback Comment show here, so I’m copying the comment and pasting it here.

      Someone at another website said:

      “Cannot believe the naive comments. You go and visit these places and you will see exactly what having this sort of communication means to the community. Alerts for all sorts of disasters…”

      Thank you for your comment!!!

      I actually went back to review this Post to honestly attempt to see what you are
      calling naive.
      I also wanted to see if I could understand the rest of your comment relative to
      the Post:
      “…what this sort of communication means to the community.Alerts for all sorts
      of disaster…” [Perhaps the rest of the comment did not come through?]

      First, re: your claim of naive comments. Absent specifics to address, the best
      I can interpret this, in the light of the Post, is that in typical collectivist-
      trained “argumentation,” having no logical argument to pose, you have resorted
      to the First Weapon in the Collectivist/Progressive Arsenal:
      Argumentum ad Hominem (Argument to the Man – or to the Person)

      When you have no answer that is logical and reasonable, the immediate defense
      is to sling personal barbs that deflect from the actual object of discussion.
      If you would like to provide specific examples from the Post that you believe
      are naive, I would be happy to discuss them with you.

      As to the other two sentences, I really do not quite understand. First, do you
      mean the communication by Obama, Holder, Sharpton, Jackson, and their ilk, who
      feed the thoughts and ideas that fuel racism against people of skin colors other
      than Black?

      If they truly desired to end racism in America, they would be honest and tell
      the real facts about the Zimmerman Case and the complete lack of evidence, in
      fact, ample evidence to the contrary, that this was not about race. They would
      acknowledge that the case had nothing to do with the Stand Your Ground Laws,
      which even though not applicable to Zimmerman/Martin, have actually helped
      Black VICTIMS more than they have White VICTIMS in Florida. They are a logical
      extension of the God-given Right to Self-Defense!

      If the leaders would tell the truth, they could begin a real dialogue among the
      American People that would point to the real cause of the dire plight of inner
      city communities – whatever the skin color of the residents. Which is the
      enshackling tyranny of over-reaching government!

      Second, I honestly have no idea what the “Alerts…” comment, with your
      ellipses, means…??? Is something missing?

      I would truly appreciate a continuing dialogue with you!
