I'm sorry I'm going to miss Morning Joe tomorrow...

…because this is going to make for an inter­est­ing conversation:

One wit­nesses, who has since talked to local tele­vi­sion news reporters, told police he saw Zim­mer­man on the ground with Trayvon on top, pound­ing him and was unequiv­o­cal that it was Zim­mer­man who was cry­ing for help.

Zim­mer­man then shot Trayvon once in the chest from very close range, accord­ing to authorities

That’s going to make for an inter­est­ing con­ver­sa­tion, so is this

For­mer NAACP leader C.L. Bryant is accus­ing Jesse Jack­son and Al Sharp­ton of “exploit­ing” the Trayvon Mar­tin tragedy to “racially divide this country.”

His fam­ily should be out­raged at the fact that they’re using this child as the bait to inflame racial pas­sions,” Rev. C.L. Bryant said in a Mon­day inter­view with The Daily Caller.

And he echoed some­thing we’ve been point­ing out:

Bryant, who explores the topic of black-​on-​black crime in his new film “Run­away Slave,” said peo­ple like Jack­son and Sharp­ton are being mis­lead­ing to sug­gest there is an epi­demic of “white men killing black young men.”

The epi­demic is truly black on black crime,” Bryant said. “The great­est dan­ger to the lives of young black men are young black men.

Legal Insur­rec­tion is still with­hold­ing judge­ment but I sus­pect that a White­house wor­ried about re-​election will play this for all it’s worth no mat­ter where the facts lead, and the clue as to why this is the case:

There was a time when the South was solidly Repub­li­can but those days are gone. Barack Obama won Vir­ginia and North Car­olina four years ago and came close to beat­ing John McCain in Geor­gia. Bill Clin­ton beat George Bush in Geor­gia, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mis­souri, Ten­nessee, Ken­tucky and West Virginia.

Romney’s con­tin­ued weak­ness in the Heart of Dixie spells trou­ble for the GOP this fall. The only ques­tion is whether it will take a San­to­rum win in Wis­con­sin to refo­cus Repub­li­can minds on the unas­sail­able fact that GOP pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates can­not win unless they have the sup­port of rock-​ribbed con­ser­v­a­tives. Mitt Rom­ney does not, and that is becom­ing clearer by the day in this painful pri­mary season.

If Rom­ney has issues with con­ser­v­a­tives in the south, a large enough Black turnout there might change the dynamic in the race.

You might ask: “Peter you’re not sug­gest­ing the Pres­i­dent would use the death of Trayvon Mar­tin as a re-​election prop?”

I really hate to say it, there was a time when I would not have, but the more I see of this pres­i­dent and the tac­tics of his allies; yes, I absolutely believe Pres­i­dent Obama would do this and it is my opin­ion that he will.

As Glenn Reynolds put it:

It does seem that way — a pre-​election period in which Al Sharp­ton and Louis Far­rakhan have high pro­files doesn’t seem opti­mal for an allegedly post-​racial Pres­i­dency. But per­haps they feel that it’s bet­ter to have peo­ple talk­ing about absolutely any­thing other than gas prices, the debt, and ObamaCare.

We elected a Chicago Machine Pol, do you really expect a Chicago machine pol to act otherwise?

Update: Remem­ber this?

Given these fig­ures and esti­mates at worst the black com­mu­nity will pro­vide a +9% for Obama and at Best +11 a dif­fer­ence on only 1 – 3 points of a vote that he won by 7.2 points.

Yet given these fig­ures the Obama admin­is­tra­tion finds the need to invest time and money in a “African-​Americans for Obama” orga­ni­za­tion where the return poten­tial return is from such a ven­ture is minis­cule sta­tis­ti­cally. That sug­gests one or both of the following:

Given the Rom­ney num­bers per­haps the attempts to boost the Black Turnout wasn’t all that odd after all.

…because this is going to make for an interesting conversation:

One witnesses, who has since talked to local television news reporters, told police he saw Zimmerman on the ground with Trayvon on top, pounding him and was unequivocal that it was Zimmerman who was crying for help.

Zimmerman then shot Trayvon once in the chest from very close range, according to authorities

That’s going to make for an interesting conversation, so is this

Former NAACP leader C.L. Bryant is accusing Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton of “exploiting” the Trayvon Martin tragedy to “racially divide this country.”

“His family should be outraged at the fact that they’re using this child as the bait to inflame racial passions,” Rev. C.L. Bryant said in a Monday interview with The Daily Caller.

And he echoed something we’ve been pointing out:

Bryant, who explores the topic of black-on-black crime in his new film “Runaway Slave,” said people like Jackson and Sharpton are being misleading to suggest there is an epidemic of “white men killing black young men.”

“The epidemic is truly black on black crime,” Bryant said. “The greatest danger to the lives of young black men are young black men.

Legal Insurrection is still withholding judgement but I suspect that a Whitehouse worried about re-election will play this for all it’s worth no matter where the facts lead, and the clue as to why this is the case:

There was a time when the South was solidly Republican but those days are gone. Barack Obama won Virginia and North Carolina four years ago and came close to beating John McCain in Georgia. Bill Clinton beat George Bush in Georgia, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, Kentucky and West Virginia.

Romney’s continued weakness in the Heart of Dixie spells trouble for the GOP this fall. The only question is whether it will take a Santorum win in Wisconsin to refocus Republican minds on the unassailable fact that GOP presidential candidates cannot win unless they have the support of rock-ribbed conservatives. Mitt Romney does not, and that is becoming clearer by the day in this painful primary season.

If Romney has issues with conservatives in the south, a large enough Black turnout there might change the dynamic in the race.

You might ask: “Peter you’re not suggesting the President would use the death of Trayvon Martin as a re-election prop?”

I really hate to say it, there was a time when I would not have, but the more I see of this president and the tactics of his allies; yes, I absolutely believe President Obama would do this and it is my opinion that he will.

As Glenn Reynolds put it:

It does seem that way — a pre-election period in which Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan have high profiles doesn’t seem optimal for an allegedly post-racial Presidency.

We elected a Chicago Machine Pol, do you really expect a Chicago machine pol to act otherwise?

Update: Remember this?

Given these figures and estimates at worst the black community will provide a +9% for Obama and at Best +11 a difference on only 1-3 points of a vote that he won by 7.2 points.

Yet given these figures the Obama administration finds the need to invest time and money in a “African-Americans for Obama” organization where the return potential return is from such a venture is miniscule statistically. That suggests one or both of the following:

Given the Romney numbers perhaps the attempts to boost the Black Turnout wasn’t all that odd after all.
