Donald Douglas links to a story that ought to make every person sick
Via Daily Caller:
The Providence College Black Studies Program e-mailed students, faculty, and administrators Tuesday to renew an award called the Trayvon Martin Award for Social Justice.
The award honors those who have shown leadership and commitment to “challenging and eliminating racism” and “empowering others to seek social justice,” said the e-mail obtained by The Daily Caller.
The award was created in 2012 to honor the 17-year-old African American who was shot by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, in Florida. Though Zimmerman was widely accused of racial profiling, the jury ultimately found him not guilty of murder.
When the award was first created, it was controversial because the trial had not even started yet. Now, despite the verdict, the department has decided to renew the award. “We won’t be silenced in recognizing those who work for social justice at Providence College, in the community or on a global level,” said Director of Black Studies Julia Jordan-Zachery in the e-mail.
So basically, they wish to grant sainthood to a thug who wanted to beat a “Cracker” to death, but was instead shot to death by his intended victim? Yep, sounds like the garbage taught in many Black Studies courses. Back in 1992, there was a girl in one of my debate classes, She was a flaming Liberal, and proud of it. She decided to take a Black Studies class, and after one class, she dropped the course. Why? Because she could not believe the racism taught there. She actually said she was afraid in that one class. She was stunned by the anti-White hatred, and the violent nature of much of the rhetoric. And again she was a die hard Lib!
Now we have an award, from a “Black Studies Program” at Providence that wishes to honor a Black kid who by their definition works for “social justice” and fought racism. Odd, from the evidence at the trial, it seems Martin was the one practicing, rather than fighting racism. But, then again, an essential part of the “Black Studies” mentality is that whatever a Black person does, it is justified because RAAAAACISM!
So, how would this tie into what I am calling the “war on self-defense”? Well it is clear that the new strategy from the self-appointed “civil rights leaders” is to march and demand and end to Stand Your Ground Laws any time a Black youth is shot, even if they are committing a crime, and even if the intended victim of that youth was justified in using deadly force, and yes, even if Stand Your Ground was not used in the trial.
So, I ask, what else shall we call this strategy? What shall we call a campaign that demonizes people who kill in self-defense while granting saintly stature to their violent attackers? What should we call a campaign that would take away the right to defend yourself under many circumstances?
