When three little girls were killed in the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Burmingham, Alabama, an all white jury found the killers not guilty in a very short period. When the fi ve boys were convicted of assaulting a white woman in Central Park (Central Park 5), they were found not guilty, after spending up to 14 years in prison. They were paid a forty one million dollar settlement for their phony conviction. The history of the South is full of not guilty verdicts for guilty white men committing crimes against Black men.
In contrast, when O.J. Simpson was found not guilty of killing Nicole and her friend, Ron Goldman, White America went crazy. White Americans needs to know that Blacks feel the same way everytime a White person is found not guilty for unjustifi ably killing a Black person.
The double standard has always been in effect, except with white nationalists like Donald Trump. When Lindsey Graham says he has already made up his mind and will vote not guilty, he returns to his roots in South Carolina and says there are no rights a black man has that a white man has to follow (Dred Scott).
We all saw the 1991 Rodney King case. The cops were found not guilty, though there was videotape of the incident showing otherwise. In the Trayvon Martin case, in 2013, rent-a-cop-Zimmerman was found not guilty. I guess they deemed Trayvon guilty of causing his own death. Now Zimmerman has the nerve to sue Trayvon’s parents and attorney of violating his civil rights. The evil continues. In 1982, two cops were killed and blacks were falsely blamed, in 1969, Black Panther, Fred Hampton was killed in a so-called shoot-out. The panthers shot one bullet. The cops shot 99, but, of course, the court refused to try them for murder.
As America looks to decide what to do with Donald Trump they need to take a look at themselves. If they fi nd him not guilty, they have decided to continue the bad behavior of the past; the behavior of pardoning the wrong doers at the will of some.
In spite of national surveys that currently show Americans do not favor Trump being impeached, ALL of the people I know and talk to say, “Impeach him!”
