After a Florida jury found George Zimmerman not guilty in the murder of a young Trayvon Martin, a group of about 20 children between the ages of 2 and 12 and about 20 more young adults decided to peacefully protest racial profiling and an unjust criminal justice system in Wichita, Kansas.
Of course, rather than support their peaceful protest, two white males decided to attempt to stoke racial unrest and start a riot by provoking them with racism.
One of them wore a black shirt that read, “This shirt can say NIGG*R because it is black.” (Of course, the racist shirt did not have an asterisk, and made the point to capitalize the deeply offensive word)
Thankfully, Trayvon’s supporters kept their cool and showed these two bigots how adults handle things, peacefully questioning them about their intentions and shaming them for their racism.
Why in the world with these two men feel compelled to throw salt on the fresh wounds of Trayvon Martin’s supporters?
Only they know, but it is safe to assume that this episode is anecdotal of the perceived “reverse racism” that many whites feel that they themselves fall victim to on a daily basis.
Do you believe that they have an unnecessary and unearned persecution complex?
