So who cares if he's Hispanic?

The Faux News personalities are whining that George Zimmerman, the cracker who stalked and murdered Trayvon Martin, couldn't be a racist because he self-identifies as Hispanic (despite the fact that Faux News' inbred white trash racist viewers apparently approve of what Zimmerman did). At which point I say, WTF? Look, people. Hispanics and blacks hate, hate, HATES the other. Hispanics view blacks as lazy indolent ghetto thugs, blacks view Hispanics as interlopers who came to America and stole all the jobs that blacks traditionally did. Sort of how the Norteños and Sureños view each other, now that I think about it (the former being the American-born Hispanics, the latter being the Mexico-born Hispanics).

So anyhow, it doesn't matter whether Zimmerman self-identifies as white or Hispanic, the fact that he muttered "fucking coons" under his breath on the 911 tape pretty much seals that case. Despite which, the local PD continues to insist that their investigation or lack thereof was quite appropriate given Florida law which basically allows you to kill anyone, anywhere, who makes you feel threatened even by just standing there and making no moves towards you. Luckily the Feds aren't constrained by Florida law when investigating hate crimes... heh. Zimmerman better have $100K handy like *now* or he's going to be spending some time in Club Fed.

  1. I believe in self defense, I believe this was murder. LARGE DIFFERENCE. Why didn't the cops at least process the shooter? I want that kind of a 'carry card', like the game Monopoly; "Get out of Jail Free",; collect two hundred Fox interviews.

  2. THis is what I've been shrilly screaming about since this is with the idea that ONLY white people are capable of racism. I mean, holy catshit, Batman; sure whites can be dicks and assholes, but last I checked NObody held the patent on that behavior.

    I could post a long list of racially-motivated hatreds.

  3. Here's one example of Hispanic (gang) racism. And murder.

  4. This especially annoys me because I taught at an inner city school in Houston that had both black and Hispanic students, and got to see the racism dynamic work out first-hand. The Soylent Blond Faux News readers don't know any people of color, the only people of color they ever encounter are the ones who vacuum their floors and dump out their trash cans, so they don't have a clue, but that doesn't stop them from making jerks of themselves. Siiiiigh!

  5. So, what do we call it when black shoot blacks?

    Oh, yeah -- and there ARE blacks who live in gated communities because, well, they want to be safe.

  6. Apparently, nobody seems to know that there IS such a thing as a "white Hispanic". 90 percent of Hispanics are ... wait for it ... white.

    The White part is race. The Hispanic part is ethnicity. There is a HUGE difference.

    George Zimmerman's mother is Cuban. She is a white Hispanic. His father is white. That would make Georgie white too, even though he has a German name and chooses to identify as a Hispanic.

    A "non-white" Hispanic would be one with say, Native American blood, or African blood. There are even a few Asian Hispanics.

    But George? He's a white boy.

  7. I once shared a dorm room, many decades before Chavez came to power in Venezuela, with a scion of Venezuelan aristocracy who sneered at the savage inferior "Indios" and felt it was only right that they weren't allowed to vote (they had a really cool way of making sure the Indios didn't get the right to vote -- you had to have a valid street address with mail delivery to register to vote, and they simply made sure that the areas where the Indios lived didn't have street addresses or mail service!). Thing is, while he self-identified as "white", put him beside one of those "indios" that he sneered at and you wouldn't be able to tell the difference in skin color!

    So yeah, race is a flexible concept, doesn't necessarily have anything to do with skin color, and your self-identified race doesn't have anything to do with whether you're racist or not. You should hear Chinese opinion of blacks! Man, talk about racists!
