A new comment on this post has brought to my attention the inaccuracy of a Trayvon photo on this post. As near as I can tell, only one photo is inaccurate, the juxtaposition photo below with Zimmerman in a yellow tie. The media is, in fact, bias against white people, it’s simply that that particular photo is not Trayvon. I am linking to a Snopes article regarding the photos that were widely circulated around the Internet and inserting two additional Snopes-verified photos of Trayvon below (the photo original to this post to the right in the red shirt is also verified accurate). The commenter could have been more polite, and simply pointed out the inaccuracy so I could post a correction, instead of being crude, and perhaps even been helpful and given me a link. That aside, it is important to update my posts when someone, no matter how rudely, points out a verifiable inaccuracy. As far as whether Zimmerman was Mexican or not, at the time of writing this post, that was the information available. I heard it on my TV, the radio, the internet. First he was white, then he was Mexican, then White-Mexican, so now he’s Peruvian. If he turns out to be Turkish tomorrow, I don’t care. The point was that the media was initially referring to him as white since something is only evil if a white person does it. I also found this website; a related and interesting read (end 03/13/14 update).
Right off the bat, I know nothing about this case. I know a black teenager was shot by a half white, half
Mexican “other-than-black” guy. That’s all I know. But that’s all I need to know to call out the media for their media bias, again.
I really hate the MSM. Nothing manipulates, controls, hypnotizes and stupefies the common public like liberally biased media.
I was watching TV this morning and they were talking about Trayvon Martin, and put a photo up of him in a red shirt. He looked about 12 years old or so with a nice big smile on his face. They also put up a picture of the guy who shot him, who looked big, a mix of some race or other and had a mean look on his face. (Update: 03/13/14 – The photo juxtaposition above was the one I saw on TV, and is in fact Trayvon Martin. This is wrong, vile and typical of liberal race baiting. It is a racist attempt to make the stereotypical, other-than-black individual guilty before the trial even begins).
The liberal media is racist, absolutely racist.
They want to ensure that tensions between (other-than-black)
whites and blacks and Mexicans (other-other-than-blacks) are never resolved. When it bleeds it leads, and racial harmony is not good entertainment. So to keep the pot stirring, the media purposely put a five-year old picture of Trayvon on TV, before the tattoos, the gold teeth, the Facebook Gangsta photos and the NoLimitNigga twitter account to manipulate and control your emotions so your knee-jerk reaction is to hate the mean looking guy, ’cause he shot that smiling young little black boy. (Update 03/13/14 – Regarding the Twitter Account, here is a Blaze article that discusses it. Draw your own conclusions).
To be fair, why didn’t they put a picture of the other guy up when he was 12 years old? How about that? That would be fair, right? Why not put up a picture of Trayvon as a baby with a rattle in his hand, so people will think this guy is a baby killer? I mean…if a recent picture seems to be out of the question, then why is it only just far enough back in time to make him look like an innocent young boy, but not so far back to suggest an infant was slaughtered?
Why is it fair to put up a picture of Trayvon before he went all gangsta, next to the other guy in County Jail orange? If that doesn’t TELL YOU what to think, I don’t know what does. The media is pure, raw, evil. Anything you see on TV, you have to assume is a lie. You must verify everything on your own, the news and the media are absolutely, uniformly, without question, USELESS and LIARS. (Update 03/13/14 – These statements are still related to what I saw on TV that day, not the incorrect photo below. The media are all race baiters. Nothing changes that.).
Hat tip to ThreeDonia for the image below that helps clarify the problem…imagine if the media showed the LEFT side of pictures instead of the RIGHT side? Looking at each side, don’t you “feel” a bit differently about each of them? Yes you do. So now you know how the media WANTED you to feel and did it on purpose.
A commenter has stated that the ThreeDonia photos are not accurate for the “after” picture of Trayvon. I have not tried to confirm whether the “after” picture is or is not Trayvon, but to be safe I have included two pictures that I know to be recent Trayvon pictures. (Update 03/13/14 – Additional verified photos of Trayvon are below, a family photo and a close up).
As I said to the commenter, it makes no difference to the facts of the case and that the purpose of my post was to point out how the media is unfairly juxtaposing a much younger jovial picture of Trayvon against an angry, jail uniformed Zimmerman in order to control your emotions, and help you pass judgment against Zimmerman before the trial has even begun.
Above I show a “before” picture of Zimmerman where he looks like a normal guy, just like any of us, next to one of Trayvon’s Facebook photos, and below are three pictures of Trayvon, without his boyish childlike charms (yes, that is supposedly marijuana smoke).
Now look back at the picture of Trayvon the media was showing 24/7. How does that feel now?
