Teaching racial hatred

The July 20 letter by Jean Durham (“Zimmerman was ‘frothing at mouth’ to shoot somebody”) is a perfect example of racist radicals who distort and twist the facts to justify their cause.

If Zimmerman was frothing at the mouth to shoot someone, why didn’t he shoot Martin before he got punched in the face? Why did he wait until Martin was sitting on top of him, pounding his head in the cement, to shoot? Should he have just waited for Martin to stop? What would you do? What kind of innocent man is wearing a hoodie, walking in-between houses in a neighborhood that was plagued by burglaries? That is why Zimmerman was suspicious. What kind of innocent man attacks a man for asking him questions? Had Martin ever been arrested? Has Zimmerman ever shot anyone else or been accused of being a racist?

This incident brings out a simple fact. Black people are the most racist people in America.

Think about it. We have a black president who was elected by all Americans, not just blacks. We have black governors, senators, congressmen and women. We have elected black leaders all over the country and especially in Atlanta, where we have a black mayor, chief of police, head of public schools and black leaders everywhere. How can you say we are prejudiced?

One of the problems is black leadership. I would like to see a “black Bible,” because my Bible does not preach hatred, violence, unrest and getting street justice like many black ministries are doing now. Then you have people like the Rev. Jesse Jackson, whose personal life is a disgrace, and Al Sharpton, who makes a fortune throwing gasoline on the fires of prejudice and racial hatred. They are horrible examples for any people to listen to or follow.

America is the greatest country in the world. It provides the best opportunities for all people — including blacks — to obtain the good life. If you don’t believe that, you are free to return to Africa. No racism there, just brutal black Muslim terrorists who will rape, mutilate and kill you. Your choice.

I love America for what we have done in the past and what we can do in the future, but we must all work together. Blacks must stop rallying and preaching hatred for unjust causes. They must spend more time with their children and telling them they can be anything, even president, and spend more time with their young men, teaching them the difference between right and wrong.

Eliminating racism is a long and bumpy road. I believe white America has taken a big step by trusting and electing blacks to public offices everywhere. The president is a pretty good example. Am I wrong?

Black America can reciprocate by not staging marches, preaching racial hatred and displaying a lynch mob mentality. Only a deaf and blind person could say that Zimmerman was wrong by shooting a person who was sitting on his chest and pounding his head on the cement.

I have a dream that someday the words “racism” and “prejudice” will not even be in the dictionary.

Hard to improve on this statement but if Trayvon was a soldier in Afghanistan on was blown away would the Racist Czar Obama even know his name?
