Sue-happy director, Spike Lee, came across a tweet that supposedly contained the home address for George Zimmerman and decided to retweet it for all his thousands of followers to see. (I'm as surprised as anyone that Spike Lee actually has "thousands.") What Lee failed to realize is that the address he was giving out to the infuriated public belonged to an elderly couple, whose grown son happens to have a similar name, William George Zimmerman, and had used his parent's address to register a vehicle. This couple is absolutely no relation to the self-defense claiming Zimmerman and have been caught up in this disaster of a racial mess, receiving hate mail and having to move into a hotel for fear of what a vengeance seeking Anti-Zimmerman Zealot might do. Even if it really were George Zimmerman's actual address, what right is it of anyone to give it out and put others in this man's life at risk? An innocent bystander getting hurt or killed because of a mob mentality is not the way to get justice for Trayvon Martin.
As much as the Jackson's and Sharpton's want to play the race card when "one of their own" is the victim, how often do they speak out when a person of another race is the victim? If you haven't noticed, when someone who is not black is the victim of someone who is, there is never this kind of outcry or insane protesting, or even rational protesting. It is usually swept under the carpet or just a blip on the news radar when someone who is not black is the victim of a black criminal. Why? Because no one wants to look like a racist, whether they mean to come across as one or not. Because no matter what is said, someone will always pull that race card and make it all about the color of someone's skin or from where they hail. It may or may not be the case in a situation, but it will be the detail that takes the spotlight over anything else.
Where were the protests when an 11-year-old Mexican girl was gang-raped by a group of young black men? In that clusterfuck of case from Texas, people gathered and race was brought up, but in defense of the men, not the 11-year-old girl. That child was ripped to shreds by people saying she was a promiscuous girl looking to get cocked by these grown ass men that couldn't possibly say no. Her family was blamed for not keeping their eye on her, but these men were portrayed as victims of this child, that she forced their hands, and penises. Even questioning whether or not this girl and her family were legally in this country, as if the fact she was a foreigner made it okay that they raped a child. It is disgusting that people can get so caught up in the race aspect of a criminal case and not see what the real crime is.
