Confession #41 – I Confess I Was Glad Trayvon Martin Got Shot
CONFESSORS….I am very well aware that today’s confession is going to set some
peoples teeth on edge. But I want to ask you to do something for me, I know you
came to this site because you were angry when you saw the title and you wanted
to see which Idiot had the gall to say that out loud. But I ask that you read
this confession with an open mind and that you engage your brain before you
write anything in the COMMENT box.
Also be aware
that I have added COMMENT MODERATION to this post, so if you intend to just
spout a slew of obscenities or racial slurs then know that I WILL NOT allow it
to be published. Today’s confession comes from a lady who wants me to let you
know that she is an American and she is Hispanic. Calling herself Maria, she
Hi Carol, I
had intended to write to you about a problem I was having with my brothers and
sisters, but in the light of the recent conclusion of the George Zimmerman
trial I felt racked with guilt over my previous behavior and thoughts.
that when Trayvon Martin was shot it was broadcast to us in many forms of media
that a Hispanic security guard shot and killed a black teenager who had
attacked him. So like many Americans I thought “serves him right” for attacking
a guard. I did not even pay any attention to the media in the weeks following
the first reporting of the incident. A few friends mentioned it and we all
agreed that if someone attacked us and we had a gun we would do our best to
shoot whoever was attacking us, and that George Zimmerman had every right to
shoot and kill Trayvon Martin.
was not long before the black community began to protest, and I was one of
those who went on Facebook and Twitter saying what are they so mad about?
Trayvon deserved to die he attacked a security guard. I even fell out with a
couple of my black friends because they said I was a racist.
By the time
George Zimmerman went on trial things were pretty crazy in the states and not a
moment didn't go by when you wasn't hearing something about the case. This is
when I started paying attention. I listened to the reports from the trial, I
watched clips of the various testimonies and I sat down and really thought
about that situation and how it must have been for George Zimmerman and Trayvon
Martin that night and the only conclusion I could come to was that George
Zimmerman is a murderer.
To my mind
there is nothing in the testimony of George Zimmerman that would make me
believe he acted in self-defense. And I am truly ashamed of the thoughts I had
and the words I wrote when the killing first took place. I am very sorry that I
offended my friend and made myself look ignorant and miss informed but to be
completely honest I feel a lot of non-black Americans have not really listened
to all of the facts of that fateful night, they are basing their opinions on
what others are saying. Simply jumping on the same bandwagon with the other
mindless hordes and not thinking for themselves.
I pray that
the Martin family draw strength from the knowledge that millions of people
around the world believe that George Zimmerman is a murderer. Thank you Carol
for posting my story and I hope that I am not judged to harshly for my initial
God Bless You
kind of people I dislike most in the world are those who open up their mouths
and let a big bundle of bullshit fly out without a single brain cell being
engaged. It appears that you are one of those people. But like the rest of the
human race you have faults and yours appears to be mental laziness. I say so
because anyone that heard the initial reports of what happened that fateful
night could only conclude it was murder.
unlike many others you have recognized your faults and are willing to open
yourself up to criticism in order to declare and admit to being greatly
mistaken. I applaud you for that. I hope that other non-blacks will see this
and examine their behavior, their words and how much they are influenced by
people around them. It is a sad thing to be an adult in the world who allows
their thoughts and behavior to be governed by the opinions and actions of
Over to YOU
What DO YOU
HAVE TO SAY ABOUT MARIA???
woman not capable of coming to a sensible conclusion on her own?
woman who thinks all blacks are thugs and criminals?
woman who eventually understood the truth?
