I’ve been wonderin’ why
People livin’ in fear
Of my shade
(Or my hi top fade)
I’m not the one that’s runnin’
But they got me on the run
Treat me like I have a gun
All I got is genes and chromosomes
Consider me Black to the bone
All I want is peace and love
On this planet
(Ain’t that how God planned it?)~Lyrics from Public Enemy
First of all, I’m not beating around the bush concerning the bullshit decision to find Michael Dunn ‘partially guilty’ for his personal involvement in procuring the unnecessary death of Jordan Davis. Davis should have celebrated his 19th birthday today. Because of a racist, pricks ‘fear’- his body, and most importantly-his soul… lie under ground that he inherently had a right to stand, walk…and run towards a long life on.
The smug look that has persistently perched itself upon Dunn’s mug this past week, is the absolute embodiment of arrogant ignorance/prejudice pretending to be labeled as fear. Only in ‘Murica’ is it acceptable to initiate conflict with someone, who is minding his or her business, and then murder them in cold-blood out of ‘fear.’ We have cultivated a culture of gun-toting, psychopaths who worship their guns over their worthless dicks. So much so, that they are emblazoned with beer balls the size of an elephant.
Don’t like the way a person looks?- go over and tell them!
If they talk back-BOOM!
Irritated by someone texting their child in a movie theatre?- get up, get in their face, and if they have the nerve to throw popcorn at you-BOOM!
Can’t stand the volume of music coming from another vehicle?-Demand they turn it down. If they pump the volume back up-pump nine rounds into their vehicle, go to your hotel, continue to guzzle wine while ordering pizza. Are these the actions of someone afraid? What EXACTLY are they fearing with their guns held high?
In Dunn’s case, like the George Zimmerman case, this murdering miscreant feared young black men, who he regarded as ‘thugs’-plain and simple. To deny the role of racial prejudice in either of these two cases is absurd because if Trayvon Martin looked like Justin Beiber, we would never have been exposed to pure pond scum like Zimmerman. There weren’t recent reports of teenage ‘White males’ breaking into apartments that caused Zimmerman to follow Martin. If the kids in the SUV looked like Dunn’s demonic ass, and were blasting ACDC or RUN DMC-no shots would have been fired.
Dunn’s own racist statements, although not allowed in the courtroom, PROVE to anyone that possesses common sense-he has a fear of the increasing ‘thug culture’ and that he attaches “The Blacks” to this ignorant definition. He proclaims not to have anything against ‘color’, yet he admits to a growing prejudice against ‘Blacks’ as he is exposed to ‘them’ while in jail. I’m sure he ran across plenty of white trash, but no mention of that. Despite his own words, there are those who will defend him and insist that the case isn’t about race. Unfortunately, some of these folks are among the so-called black leaders of today.
Who are these leaders? Are they the meandering minstrel show, that stars the likes of todays so-called African-American conservatives? Are they celebrities and entertainers, posing as ‘activists’ who are more concerned with chasing a buck, rather than giving a fuck about their youth being butchered like diseased cattle?
An asshole like Michael Dunn isn’t afraid of ANYTHING except losing his undeserved, preferred position in this thing called life. It’s not JUST because of the same arrogant ignorance that led that(White), retired, police officer to murder someone(White) in a movie theater. It’s that old bastards same ignorance, combined with outright prejudice, that continues to threaten the very existence of young African-American males…well outside the walls of a movie theater, or a jail cell. The fear of a now, not so White Planet.~Daryl R.
