 BlackCommentator.com: George Zimmerman Has a Home in Colorado - Sharp n’ Blunt - By Desi Cortez - BC Columnist

With the conclusion of the Trayvon Martin public lynching, George Zimmerman has little reason to go into hiding; he has no reason to exile himself all the way to his mother’s South American homeland of Peru. No, instead I’d suggest he need go no further than small town America.

George, come to Colorado!

There’re small towns all across the state where George will be “hailed as an hero,” treated as a “victimized” man who was needlessly, needlessly I say, dragged through the judicial process reserved for criminals, when as we all know due to the all-White jury member B-37 he was a good guy, “with a good heart” just trying to help - who ended up the victim of a dead Black “Boy...”

George, pack up the wife and brother and move to Greely, Walsenburg, Gunnison, Montrose, the little towns I could list across Colorado are endless, where the population will willingly welcome and embrace you. And does that not speak volumes about those populations thatcondone George’s actions?

If not Colorado, move to Idaho, North Dakota, Montana - these states have a minimal Afro-American populations, meaning George has less to fear. Oddly, or perhaps predictably, the disgust, rage and anger does not exist there.

Why not?

I can’t imagine there’re White people in these towns and even entire states who’re so very angry and frustrated that they’d like to settle the score with George Zimmerman.

And therein lies the tragic proof... The prevailing Caucasian perspective hasn’t really changed over the last millennium. Blacks are “guilty until proven innocent,” and along with that comes the more cynical - “the only good nigger is a dead nigger.”

The United States is not “United.” There exists no “one nation under God, indivisible with liberty n’ justice for all” except in the small minds of angry, hostile White folks. For it is this portion of the Yankee stew, Conservative White people, who’ve concocted this make-believe fairy tale of a land where race is irrelevant and meaningless in all relevant aspects of life.

The only problem in this tall-tale is that virtually no Black people, nor Brown, Red n’ Yellow Americans believe it.

Matter of fact, the only racists left in the US-of-A are Blacks, for it is us who simply can’t get over it and move on, and accept that the Republican TEA Party card-carrier is colorblind.

Yes, it is in small town USA, out West, that George will find an entire small town’s population who can disregard the facts: George was a frustrated wannabe cop, perhaps a alcoholic, who’d been rejected by police forces because he wasn’t up to snuff, he didn’t have the right stuff. George had assaulted a police officer and beat his woman. He’d taken months and months of barbarian training, and then the question of George being on steroids. He’d call 911 dozens and dozens and dozens of times to report suspicious men in his neighborhood - all Black.

The murder scene was contaminated by disinterested cops who wanted to have a beer with George, not place him under arrest. The state of Florida had to be forced to charge and arrest a man who killed a boy. The prosecution team was, at best, mediocre and one could say, as millions are, their half-assed arguments lacked depth, drama and details and reflected the fact that the state was going about their task of charging George in a begrudging, reluctant manner.

See, in small-town, lily-white America, none of that matters. Now understand, it doesn’t matter in urban Yuppie enclaves where Whites are strategically/economically isolated n’ insulated from the riff-raff - but Blacks are free to wander about and one may sneak-up on you. That won’t happen in parts of Utah and Nevada.

There was a Black Mandingo buck wandering the gated community minus his “papers” and therefore, just as it was in 1956, 1939, 1922, 1905, and1891. Any White man has the authority/audacity to ask “What you doing around here boy?” That’s the historical way it use to be, the “desired way.” White folks would like to still have it. And I’d submit, there are millions of White folks across this divided land who’d love to go back to yesteryear when they could tell you “Boy! don’t you dare look me in the eye, and don’t you dare look at my women, matter-of-fact, get off of the walkway when I approach, and scurry your way home, on the back of the bus to the other-side of the tracks, over in Coontown!

Before the sun sets on your Black ass!

I’m sure there’re Mormon towns all across Utah and Nevada who will provide this hero, George Zimmerman with a home, car and job, because here the facts don’t matter.

Now what does “matter” is this Black President said “if I had a son, he’d look like Treyvon” for in their paranoid eyes, he’s the chief stirring up all savages. What is deemed relevant - Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were on the Sanford Florida scene because in the minds of most White people, Blacks are mindless, childlike creatures who are ruled by our emotions and we can be brought to the verge of violence by men like Jackson and Sharpton.

These are the FOX News facts that fuel the contempt, the hostility White America harbors for Blacks. Those were the facts of the case you could hear Rush, Hannity and all the good ol’ boys amplifying on the AM hate radio airwaves over the last year n’ a half, because that’s all that matters to most of White America.

George Zimmerman, go West young man, go West!
