Black America's "Nigga Moment"


The head of the NAACP and George Zimmerman: one is a Black man seeking justice, while the other does things that hurt Black people. Can you tell which is which?















A Crazy Conspiracy-Theory

Early reporting on the shooting of a 17-year-old Black named Trayvon Martin in The Retreat at Twin Lakes, a gated community in Sanford, Florida, described the shooter, 28-year-old George Zimmerman, as a White man. It was alleged that the White police and the White power-structure of Sanford wanted to protect a racially motivated White killer. This predictably generated an angry Black mob demanding essentially that the government lynch the perpetrator.

A widely circulated arrest-photo of George Zimmerman from several years ago does not show a White man, but a man with tawny skin and a broad nose, resembling what is usually described as “non-White Hispanic,” very likely about one-eighth Negro himself. I pointed this out several times in the comments section of CNN's initial report on the story (which did not include any photo of Zimmerman); CNN"s  next report on the matter called Zimmerman "Hispanic" instead.

So, since it was not a White man, that should dispel the notion of a racist conspiracy, right? No, it only made the lynch-mob's rhetoric a little more awkward.

Mass-media dropped the claim that Zimmerman was White, but somehow the notion seems to persist among Blacks that a “racist” conspiracy is the reason why Zimmerman has not been arrested. This was being loudly proclaimed, e.g., at the “Million Hoodie March” in New York City, an affirmation of Trayvon Martin's right to dress like a criminal.

"My hoodie is at the cleaners."
A More Realistic View

Trayvon Martin was not from Sanford, but from crime-ridden Miami. At the time of his death, he was under suspension from his high school and had gone to stay with his father in Sanford. The reason for the suspension was that he was “in an unauthorized area” according to his father (who declined to offer more details, says The Miami Herald). A subsequent report in the Orlando Sentinel indicates that Trayvon Martin had traces of marijuana on him when he was found in the unauthorized area.

Photos of Trayvon Martin accompanying the initial reports seem to be from a few years ago, showing him looking much less menacing than he appeared at 17. This created the unrealistic impression that Trayvon Martin could not have been dangerous. Another way that the public has been misled (e.g. by Pastor David Manning[1], and by Emily Bazelon writing for Slate) is with the observation that Zimmerman was “a much bigger man” (Bazelon's words) than Martin: what this really means is that Zimmerman is fat. If Zimmerman was 100lbs heavier than Martin, he is surely not as tall as Martin was at 6'3”. (Now it comes out that the figure of 250lbs for Zimmerman from 2005 is no longer valid, nor is he 6' tall as some claimed: Zimmerman currently weighs 170 and is only 5'8".) The fact that Zimmerman was armed is also not a very good argument that Martin did not attack him, since a concealed-carry permit such as Zimmerman has does not allow one to carry a weapon in plain view.

The fact that Martin was wearing a hoodie is not insignificant. Hooded sweatshirts are a favorite garment of Black criminals, because the hood allows them to be unidentifiable on surveillance video. Even criminals that are not Black, for example ant-racist anarchists, will wear these hoodies for exactly that reason. Zimmerman was not wrong to be suspicious and to “profile” the wearing of a hood by an unfamiliar person in his gated community as an indicator of possible criminal intent. 

Police say that the reason why they did not arrest Zimmerman is that Zimmerman claimed that he had shot the Black in self-defense, and they believed him. Why did the police believe Zimmerman? He appeared to have taken a beating. He was bleeding from his nose and the back of his head, for which he was treated by paramedics, and his back was wet and covered in grass, indicating that he had been involved in a tussle. Zimmerman said that he had yelled for help but nobody came. "I was yelling for someone to help me but no one would help me," he told paramedics. One witness who subsequently ran upstairs to phone police actually saw Martin on top of Zimmerman beating him up.



Despite these facts, Blacks almost universally seem to be sure that George Zimmerman is guilty of murdering poor, innocent little Trayvon Martin, and that the police wanted to cover it up. Some of the mainstream media continue to put out biased accounts of the incident that encourage that belief.


The Rule of Unreason

Those who want to blame Zimmerman say that he should have kept his distance from Martin. If I had been in Zimmerman's shoes, I probably would have kept some distance. But why is it necessary to be so prudent where Blacks are concerned? Why would it have been wrong for Zimmerman to approach Martin to ask what he was doing? I myself have been asked such questions when my hair was long and I was in an upscale neighborhood where I did not live – but of course I am a White guy. Nobody expects a White guy to go berserk just because you asked him what he was doing. On the other hand, we all know that young Black males fly off the handle on a regular basis. In the Boondocks cartoon, authored by a Black person, this phenomenon even has a special name, the "nigga moment."


This is how Zimmerman describes the altercation with Trayvon Martin:

Zimmerman told them he lost sight of Trayvon and was walking back to his SUV when Trayvon approached him from the left rear, and they exchanged words.

Trayvon asked Zimmerman if he had a problem. Zimmerman said no and reached for his cell phone, he told police. Trayvon then said, "Well, you do now" or something similar and punched Zimmerman in the nose, according to the account he gave police.
Zimmerman fell to the ground and Trayvon got on top of him and began slamming his head into the sidewalk, he told police. [Orlando Sentinel, 26 March 2012]

In Boondocks terminology, Trayvon Martin had a nigga moment.  

We White people – and apparently all non-Black people, since George Zimmerman is certainly not White -- are expected to give extra indulgence, or otherwise go out of our way, to avoid provoking a “nigga moment.” Apparently Zimmerman chose not to go out of his way to avoid trouble, with the result that Trayvon Martin attacked him. For this, Zimmerman is at fault? We seem to judge interactions with Blacks the same way we would judge encounters with wild animals: if anything goes wrong, it's the human's fault, because it is accepted that the wild animal lacks reason and self-control.

The scandal is not that a Black turned violent, nor that somebody shot a Black in self-defense, nor that an unreasonable Black mob has gone off half-cocked. The scandal is that this agitation by a Black mob for the arrest of a man who shot one of them in self-defense is considered worthy of respect. Unreason among Blacks is being promoted and encouraged. The entire Black population has been goaded by mass-media and by what passes for Black leadership into indulging a collective nigga moment.

Where are the reasonable Blacks – the Blacks who are fed up with crime in their own communities – who will say that maybe George Zimmerman really did shoot Trayvon Martin in self-defense? Are there any?
George Lincoln Rockwell about to address the Nation of Islam
A keynote of National-Socialism has always been reconciliation; in Germany this meant the elimination of class-grievances that could be exploited by enemies of the entire people. In the United States, the same general idea might manifest as a rational modus vivendi between Black and White based on mutual respect, if that is possible. There are certain eventualities that will be ruinous for Blacks as well as Whites if they are not avoided. Specifically, it is very much not in the interest of Blacks to see Whites become a minority in the United States, because, in a majority non-White America, Blacks will be pushed out of jobs and the preferences that all non-Whites have received as a consequence of White guilt will not be very helpful to Blacks anymore. Furthermore, Blacks along with Whites will experience the effects of the society's overall deterioration. Face it, the more Mestizos live in the United States, the more the country will come to resemble Mexico in all respects. Blacks and Whites together could perhaps form an electoral coalition sufficient to prevent that. But there is no way that self-respecting White people can  deal with Blacks that act like a paranoid lynch-mob.

It is an interesting coincidence that the two judas-goats that have been trying to persuade Blacks to support the browning of the United States, Ben Jealous of the NAACP and Al Sharpton, a crazy loose cannon who for some reason has his own syndicated radio show and now a TV show on MSNBC, have been in the forefront of Black celebrity agitators against reason in this matter. 

"Zimmerman needs to be put behind bars," said Jealous, who appears to have less Negro ancestry than George Zimmerman. By stirring the pot in this matter, both Ben Jealous and Al Sharpton are making political consensus between Blacks and Whites about the future of the country impossible. Provoking Blacks to behave completely unreasonably is a way to maintain chaos and prevent rational measures from being taken.  

Cui bono? Well, it is well known that the NAACP was founded by Jews and as recently as the 1970s the NAACP did not even pretend to be run by Blacks; Kivie Kaplan, a Jew, was the president of the NAACP until 1975, and Jews apparently still control the NAACP through purse-strings. During a brief period in the mid-1990s when the NAACP had a president who was openly critical of Jews, Ben Chavis, the organization suddenly ran into financial problems -- because donations from Jews dried up. As for the Jews' perceived interest in and efforts toward increasing and maintaining illegal immigration, Professor Kevin MacDonald has written about that. 

Some Blacks are already skeptical of the NAACP and realize that it is run by Jews for Jewish interests. Certainly many Blacks also recognize that immigration is contrary to their interests. If Blacks in the United States collectively want to have any future, the level-headed among them should  at least attempt to counter the chaotic, media-manipulated Black mob, and present a face with which self-respecting White people could cooperate for common good against the ruin that is approaching.

I saw an interview with forensic audio expert Tom Owen in which he seemed to be saying that he was highly confident that the voice of the person screaming for help on 911 recordings was not George Zimmerman. But this report from CNN has Owen giving a 48% chance that it is Zimmerman. That doesn't seem to be a basis for any kind of conclusion. It certainly isn't sufficient cause for discounting the word of the eyewitness "John" who says that he saw Zimmerman screaming for help.

The Miami Herald now gives more information about Trayvon Martin's rather un-angelic character. He was suspended from school three times, and was found in possession of twelve pieces of women's jewelry, a watch, and a large flathead screwdriver (considered a burglar's tool) at school.

The parents' attorney says that all of this is irrelevant, but if this is information about Martin is irrelevant then certainly so is the speculation about whether Zimmerman may have had some racist thoughts before Martin attacked him and he was forced to defend himself.

It turns out that I hit the nail on the head when I estimated that Zimmerman was "about one-eighth Negro":

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/04/25/us-usa-florida-shooting-zimmerman-idUSBRE83O18H20120425

Black neighbor: "Let's talk about the elephant in the room. I'm black, OK?" the woman said, declining to be identified because she anticipated backlash due to her race. She leaned in to look a reporter directly in the eyes. "There were black boys robbing houses in this neighborhood," she said. "That's why George was suspicious of Trayvon Martin."

[...]

[Zimmerman] was raised in a racially integrated household and himself has black roots through an Afro-Peruvian great-grandfather - the father of the maternal grandmother who helped raise him.

There has been a lot of confusion about the relative stature of the two individuals involved in the incident. Zimmerman was not obese at the time of the incident, nor was he taller than Martin. According to all reports Martin was at least 3" taller than Zimmerman.

CBS News, 30 March 2012:

There is some inconsistency in reports of Martin and Zimmerman's height and weight. In the original police report, Martin is described as being 6' tall and weighing 160 pounds. But his family told CBS News that he was 6' 2" and between 140-150 pounds. Zimmerman is described in the police report as standing 5' 9" tall, with no weight listed. In a 2005 police report, Zimmerman's ex-fiance describes him as 5' 7" and according to the Miami Herald he weighs about 200 pounds.
