Andrew Ti on “Black On White” Violence Coverage
Re: “Why doesn’t “black on white” violence get the press the Zimmerman/Martin affair is?”
Yo, the answer is “because, if they could be caught, all those motherfuckers were at the very minimum arrested, you fucking racist idiot.”
PS. I actually think the focus on George Zimmerman is misplaced in this discussion, and I think that plays into the racist side’s hand. I think it’s hugely important, and getting largely swept under the rug, that it doesn’t actually matter whether or not George Zimmerman himself is racist. By doing so, and asking whether or not the murder was motivated by race, you’re overlooking the actual outrage: that the fucking cops didn’t even arrest him. The outrage isn’t (or shouldn’t primarily be) over whether or not he is or isn’t racist, or whether or not Trayvon was or wasn’t a good kid, it’s over the fact that, if George Zimmerman were Black or Trayvon Martin were White, the murderer George Zimmerman would have been arrested and would definitely have been at least charged with murder.
If you aren’t reading Andrew’s blog, you should be.
