No Justice! No Peace.
When I learned of the Casey Anthony verdict on June 6, 2011 after returning from lunch, I stopped off into the break room. and most of the employees in there were Black. They were in shock, angry and one spoke bluntly of how the public literally vilified Michael Vick for mistreating some dogs. He was sent to jail–which really was a miscarriage of justice, given that the sentence was overkill. He should have just gotten a fine. But no. White folks demanded this N*gger to be taught a lesson. He had to do time.
Initially, I felt that there just wasn’t enough evidence to convict Casey, but even I was completely floored by a Not Guilty verdict. She got off. And now so did George Zimmerman–both from Florida.
In recent times, with the not guilty verdict of George Zimmerman for the senseless murder of Trayvon Martin; Black women have been sent to jail for not sending their child to school–however, this white chick was found not guilty for first degree murder? The only thing I have to say, is that if this woman had been Black, there is no way in hell the jury would have found her not guilty.
So, is there something wrong with the system? Or is there something wrong with the state of Florida?
Yes, in America, justice does come down to Black and white.
That’s how it works here in America. Justice really means: JUST US!
This woman killed her child. And in no way can anyone justify this verdict. I guess, a dog’s life has more value than a little innocent girl who didn’t even get a chance to live her life.
George Zimmerman stalked, judged, and executed an innocent Black teenager just because in “his mind” he looked suspicious. Did he deserve to die just for walking home from a convenient store?
However, case in point; I honestly feel that Michael Vick deserves an apology. This man’s career was almost ruined because of the attitudes that some white folks have that animals have more value than they should. I could care less about pit bulls, and frankly, how do you justify animal cruelty when hunting is such a big sport in this country? If anything…this experience has definitely changed Vick–for the better.
No one is condoning what he did, but it was just too extreme to have to go to prison for it and almost lose his career.
Whatever the case, It’s my contention that America is never going to really change until white folks get the BIG PAYBACK on them that their hatred has perpetrated on millions of innocent lives.
And who loves to hunt more than any other group? Yet they want to vilify a man for bad judgement?
