My Grandsons Could Look Like Jorge (George) Zimmerman

President Obama’s comments on the shooting of a black teenager, Trayvon Martin: “But my main message is to the parents of Trayvon Martin. If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon. And I think they are right to expect that all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves, and that we’re going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened.” Folks, that is a bald face lie! Trayvon’s parents are both black, whereas President Obama has a white mother and black father! So how could President Obama have the audacity to utter those race-baiting comments?
For your information, Jorge (George) Zimmerman is half white and half Hispanic as are my grandsons who are also half white and half Hispanic. However, the liberal mainstream media has tried hard not to reveal that. Blacks, particularly Rev. (?) Jessie Jackson and Rev. (?) Al Sharpton have focused more on Mr. Zimmerman’s whiteness to stoke the fires of racism. Without black and white incidents like this, these two race-baiting opportunists would have to go find a real job.
In all my life I have never seen a man like Mr. Zimmerman pre tried and lied about by the news media and sentence to death as per the Black Panthers who are offering a $10,000 reward for his life without letting the rule of law follow its course and find out if indeed Mr. Zimmerman is guilty of 1st degree murder. Folks, if Mr. Zimmerman is guilty of murdering Trayvon, I will be demanding he’d get the death sentence. To me it doesn’t matter if he is brown, white, yellow or black!
What I find so hypocritical of race baiting blacks is that the U.S. Justice Department recently provided a breakdown of homicides by the race of both the victim and the offender. Looking at the data since 2005, it was found that whites committed 48% of all murders and blacks committed 51.2% of all murders. However, whites outnumber blacks in the population by a large number. In fact, non-Hispanic whites are about 69% of the population and blacks are about 13%. These statistics along, shows that blacks are 13% of the population, but commit 51.2% of the murders, indicate that blacks commit a seriously disproportionate number of murders among their own kind. I now ask, “Where is the outrage of supposed black leaders like Jackson and Sharpton and the Black Panthers?” What that tells me is that blacks don’t give a rats read end if they kill each other, just don’t let a white or half white Latino person do it!
Recently, I saw a hideous crime story on ID TV. The murder victim, Cherica Adams, was a beautiful young black 21-year-old lady. Cherica’s big mistake was falling in love with Rae Carruth, a black NFL Carolina Panthers football player. In time, Cherica got pregnant much to the displeasure of Carruth, who was already paying child support to a girl in California. Facing the possibility of having to pay child support to Cherica who was 6-1/2 months pregnant, Carruth cooked up an evil murder plot with two black hoodlums, Mike Kennedy and Van Brett Watkins. His evil plot was to invite Cherica to dinner with each driving to the restaurant in their car. After dining, Carruth enticed Cherica to follow him to her apartment. As Carruth drove to Cherica’s apartment he phone Kennedy and Watkins and told them what road he was on. In a lonely spot on the road, Carruth stopped his car as Kennedy drove his car next to Cherica’s car where Watkins then shot her four times in the head and neck. Carruth then sped away leaving Cherica mortally wounded in her car. Barely able to use her cell phone Cherica dialed 911 asking for help while bleeding profusely from her wounds. At the hospital Cherica’s baby was delivered but due to her losing so much blood doctors feared he would have severe brain damage, which he has to this very day. Cherica, unable to talk, wrote of her horrible account and after her death, Carruth along with the shooter Watkins and the driver Kennedy all faced murder charges. Sadly, Carruth was only sentenced to 18-24 years for conspiracy, shooting into an occupied vehicle and using an instrument to destroy an unborn child. The driver, Mike Kennedy got 11 years and the shooter Van Brett Watkins got 40 years to life. At his sentencing, Carruth showed no emotion for his actions. Folks, how many of you heard of this horrible event, and where was the outrage of Black Americans on this hideous murder plot? Oh, I forgot, it was a black killing another black.
By now some of your are asking, “James, you sure are coming down on blacks.” No sir, just recently I applauded a death sentence handed to Mark Soliz a Hispanic here in Fort Worth. This beast robbed and killed a young Hispanic deliveryman, Ruben Martinez, leaving a pregnant wife with a 6-year-old son. After killing Mr. Martinez, Soliz tried to rob and shoot another man no more than 3 blocks from my house at Lowe’s. Luckily, the intended victim got away. Later, Soliz along with an accomplice, Jose “Joe” Ramos, drove to Johnson Country looking for a home to rob. There they entered the home of Mrs. Nancy Weatherly, a 61-year-old grandmother. After robbing Mrs. Weatherly, Soliz admitted shooting her as she knelt pleading for her life.
As predictable, during the trial, Soliz’s defense team presented evidence from Soliz’s friends and mother how he was abused and uncared for by his drug addicted and alcoholic mother. However, what made me so angry at this piece of human trash was when Soliz’s girl friend testified that he told her that Mrs. Weatherly prayed and begged for her life but that he shot her anyway. He then laughed about it she said.
Folks, I attended a fundraiser for Ruben Martinez shortly after his death at Billy Bob’s to help his widowed pregnant wife and child sponsored by his company. I expected to see many Hispanics at the event, but to my surprise all I saw in great numbers were those evil and racist white people!

I am tired of this entire case. Let the justice system do its job.
I am also tired of people pretending that Hispanics do not come in all races. White, Black, Asian...
Zimmmerman could be half White and half Hispanic and still be 100% white.
Hispanic is not a race.

"If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon."
Why is that a big issue to you? You don't believe it's possible? You think our president is a racist? His grand parents were also white. Very white. His step father was Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesia.
Every column that you write has to take a stab/jab at our president. I believe you're the racist; judging by the things you say. Not only here, but in your e-mails also.
But I agree that other's are trying to accuse Zimmerman of killing Martin just because the kid was black.
A week or so ago, I sent a letter to my local news paper. I'll post it next.

My Letter to the SA Editor:
My condolences go out to the family and friends of Trayvon Martin. If he was shot just because of his race, and he was not a threat to Zimmerman, or anyone, then justice must be done and the one who shot him should be punished to the full extent of the law. However, I believe in justice for all, and there are circumstances that may not be known. Did Martin attack Zimmerman first? What was he doing at that time of night? Did his parents send him out? Did they agree on him wearing a hoodie? Since he was wearing a hoodie, did Zimmerman know he was black before he followed him or was told not to? Was the weather bad out? Cold, windy? raining? I have always been suspicious of anyone covering their face; and yes, I am uncomfortable with anyone wearing a hoodie or covering their face. It’s good that people want justice and demonstrate. However, this is getting out of hand. Rep. Bobby Rush wore a hoodie in congress and got reprimanded for it. A professional NBA team wore hoodies. Well they said it was them. We couldn’t see their faces so I don’t know. Those people don’t know what they’re getting into. And those who wear masks and hoodies to commit crime are going to gain by all this. And before anyone brands me a racist, Let me tell you that I was once called a “N” lover. Why? Because I hired Blacks. In the 1950s and ever since I can remember, in the music business, everyone was the same. Black band leaders hired Whites and Chicanos. I Hired Blacks and Whites. As a matter of fact, my band was called the United Nations band. The only color that mattered to me and my friends was “GREEN.” May we have justice for “ALL.”

Well then you won't like me because I could look like Jorge Zimmerman (with a white father and Hispanic mother) and I would like anything to find a way for him to be innocent; I would LOVE for this to be "about race" for me and not be so ashamed of someone in "my own clan" but alas, sadly, it is not the case. By the end of the trial, by the time we see all the evidence; we'll find Trayvon would actually have been right even had he killed him (in self defense) as he was unable to get away from this armed adult stalker, who happened to be of my own race Hispanic/white. In reality; it would be wonderful if everyone who is Hispanic/white obeyed the law as we do. Sadly, that is not reality; and Zimmerman is obviously not in our league. Sincerely, Rick

Google "Tyrone Woodfork" and "Nancy and Bob Strait" and see how little attention Al Sharpton, Oprah Winfrey, and other race-baiters are giving to this racially-motivated rape and murder. And we can ask Obama: "does Tyrone Woodfork look like your son, or the Straits resemble your maternal grandparents?"

I guess anyone can look like someone's son "OR" daughter; grand parent, brother, sister. But we still have racists in our country. "THAT" will never go away.
However, the problem with the author of this board is that every thing that goes wrong in this country he blames on our president. Mostly because he's a Democrat. But I have reasons to know (personally) that Reza "IS" a racists.
May all of you have a "HAPPY EASTER" no matter what race you may be.

President Obama is married to a black woman with whom he has two black daughters...you've seen them right? So just imagine if one them was a boy... Not that big of a stretch of the imagination....

As I said before, in the 1950's, and to this day, here in San Antonio there were no color barriers in the music business. We were all a group of musicians who belonged to an era which will never be duplicated in the future. Any disagreements or fights were "NOT" because of race. In the words of Patoski;
“It's hard to put your finger on the magic. It was black, brown and white like no one else mixed up at the time. That's his legacy,” said journalist Joe Nick Patoski, author of “Willie Nelson: An Epic Life.”
But racism has never gone away. What's more, it's not only blacks who are hated. Some hate brown and white also.
