How Will Our Leaders Address Racial Tension in the United States?

Why hasn’t Obama made an attempt to defuse the racial division in this country? This is a simple question but it will become a defining moment in history. A people who live in fear and oppression only have two choices: death or revolt.

How is Romney addressing this issue? Here is his initial statement:

“What happened to Trayvon Martin is a tragedy. There needs to be a thorough investigation that reassures the public that justice is carried out with impartiality and integrity.”

Based on the evidence, is the prosecution of George Zimmerman being carried out with impartiality and integrity? Or was evidence suppressed: the color picture of the back of his head bleeding came out over one month later? Nothing divides this country faster than racism and nothing is worse than being labelled a racist. The former is being used to destroy our county and the latter keeps good people from speaking the truth. What is the truth? The real question is what defines the truth in our country and that is the problem. Once the people in power and the media suppress the truth, we are only left with “perception is truth”. That statement was the reason I started and was the subject of the  first article written.

Here is an excerpt:

Have our perceptions replaced truth? The phrase “perception is truth” is a measure of our morality and honor. When we have to consider perceptions instead of the truth, we have truly become the sheeple that Pravda labeled the American people last year. This is the foundation of propaganda that leads down the road to tyranny. 

Let’s consider the following quotes on propaganda:

             “Propaganda must be planned and executed by only one authority.”

      “Credibility alone must determine whether propaganda output should be true or false.”
      “Propaganda must label events and people with distinctive phrases or slogans.”
      “Propaganda must facilitate the displacement of aggression by specifying the targets for hatred.”
      “Black rather than white propaganda may be employed when the latter is less credible or produces undesirable effects. ”
      “To be perceived, propaganda must evoke the interest of an audience and must be transmitted through an attention-getting communications medium.”
                 “Propaganda to the home front must create an optimum anxiety level.”

All of the following quotes are from the same master of propaganda: Joseph Goebbels. His position in NAZI Germany was the Reich Minister for Public Enlightenment and Propaganda.

Do you see where we are and where we are headed? Do you see who is leading us down this path?

Victim’s sister: Mobile, Ala. black-on-white beating sparked by theft, not basketball

The sister of a white Mobile, Alabama man who suffered severe head trauma during a beating by approximately 20 black neighbors on Saturday spoke exclusively to The Daily Caller, saying that the incident started after one of her children witnessed some of the eventual assailants stealing an item from a neighbor’s porch — not, as some media outlets have reported, following a disagreement about a pick-up basketball game in the street.

Ashley Parker, whose brother Matthew Owens is clinging to life after the assault, said Owens was attacked after her 21-year-old daughter witnessed a group of African-American youth moving from yard to yard in the neighborhood and taking something that didn’t belong to them. She told Owens, who confronted the youths.

She “saw one of them take something off a porch,” Parker said, “and that is when Matthew approached them and told them they need to go home.”

Victim’s sister: Mobile, Ala. black-on-white beating sparked by theft, not basketballThe group returned with more than a dozen others, she said, beating Owens with bats, brass knuckles, a chair, a paint can and other objects. The attack left him bloodied and unconscious.

Parker has since reinforced her account about petty theft precipitating the incident, telling the same version of events to a Facebook group that was started to support her brother.

She said she is “scared to death” and plans to move out of the neighborhood this week.

“I don’t feel safe here anymore,” she told TheDC. “My brother is being smeared. … I know how this works now. The victim always ends up the bad guy. I have lost faith in humanity because of this.”

Her children, she said, “witnessed their uncle being beaten half to death. Now my children are afraid. I will not live like this.”

She is also concerned that her home address is being distributed on Twitter.

One man, 44-year-old Terry Rawls, was arrested Wednesday and charged with first-degree assault in the case, WKRG-TV5 in Mobile reported. Deputy Police Chief Lester Hargrove said investigators now believe only four people were involved in the beating, with the rest of the group standing and watching.

In a stunning development on Tuesday, WKRG released raw footage of an African-American woman who lives on the street where the beating occurred exclaiming that Owens, not the mob, was at fault. She yelled her protest in the direction of correspondent Lauren Vargas and her cameraman as they prepared to shoot a news segment.

The woman, who did not identify herself, said that police had to be called “every weekend” because “Mr. Owens was swinging … knives out here in front of these kids.” She also alleged that he was “bipolar” and “he drinks.”

She also accused Owens of being a racist: “The kids’ ball just went up here in his yard,” she yelled, “and he started cussing, like calling them ‘niggers.’ How would you like for your kids to be called ‘niggers’ all the time?”

WKRG reported Wednesday after Rawls’ arrest that he lives in the same house as the woman who accused Owens, on-camera, of being a racist.

It was Parker who told police she heard someone in the group of her brothers’ assailants say after the attack, “Now that’s justice for Trayvon.” Media reports have identified neighbors who corroborated her statement.
