As I watch MSNBC and see Al Sharpton et/all go crazy over the verdict of the Zimmerman case and hear the NAACP appeal to the federal government for relief I kept remembering a repeated meme that I’ve seen at Instapundit
For those of you who are not schooled in American History Homer Plessy subject of the famous Supreme Court Case Plessy v Ferguson that established the doctrine of “Separate but equal” until Brown vs Board of Education overturned it.
The Irony is overwhelming, it’s the 50’s all over again! Consider:
A 1/4 black man has been acquitted of murder and we are seeing a group of powerful and influential people determined to make him pay.
A 1/4 Black man has been acquitted of murder and we are seeing a mob of people willing to publicly threaten to kill him for it.
I guess they were right, Jim Crow is back after all
One final thought:
If George Zimmerman had run for and been elected president in 2004 the same people who are calling his acquittal a travesty and calling for his murder would have cheered and celebrated him as the first black president.
Update: Instalanche, but I have to disagree with Roger Simon. His presumption of the president being a “big loser” is based on his disgraceful actions, not on his goals. He forgets for the left the ends justifies the means and because of this Barack Obama is a big winner. Now only was he able to use this case to spike black turnout in 2012 but this verdict allows his partisans to continue to use this case as a club in 2014 races and beyond.
After five weeks of short paychecks last week was just wonderful, not only by Monday did I have a full paycheck and more to catch up on all the short weeks but it also meant that for vie days I didn’t have to make a daily pitch. It was great!
Well it’s Sunday and a new week so that means the quest for a paycheck begins again.
Thanks to the excellent results of last week If I can draw a full paycheck the next two weeks July & June together will be a net success.
So if you think this site is worth is, consider hitting DaTipJar below, if 15 of you do so this week for $20.40 then I can secure a full $305 paycheck
