    RACE IN AMERICA Modern-day 'lynching': Is this justice for all?


    Modern-day 'lynching': Is this justice for all?

    Exclusive: Ben Kinchlow demands fair investigation for 400 black men killed in Chicago

    Published: 2 hours ago
    Ben Kinchlow
    Ben Kinchlow is a minister, broadcaster, author and businessman. He was the long-time co-host of CBN's "The 700 Club" television program and host of the international edition of the show, seen in more than 80 countries. He is the founder of Americans for Israel and the African American Political Awareness Coalition, and the author of several books.

    How dare they?

    Why spend all that time, go through all the trouble and expense of having him tried in a court of law and judged by a jury of his peers? Why didn’t a group of “outraged citizens,” in retaliation for the crime he was accused of, don robes, drag him out and hang him from a tree?

    Oh wait, wait. We used to have that, didn’t we? Regularly, “outraged citizens” known as the Ku Klux Klan, donned robes, dragged “guilty” blacks out to trees, sans a trial by a jury of their peers, and hanged them.

    It was called “justice” by some, “lynching” by others.

    If memory serves, all blacks, and a large majority of whites, objected to this. They felt citizens, regardless of race, creed or national origin, should not be denied access to our legal justice system and that there should be a proper adherence to the law, regardless of the charges.

    Am I somehow misinterpreting the “outrage,” so called, by alleged “civil rights” groups and/or leaders?

    It has often been said, “What you don’t know won’t hurt you.” But that’s not true. Ignorance is deadly! Be the first to get Ben Kinchlow’s “Black Yellowdogs” before its Sept. 10 release.

    Are these “spokespersons” for black Americans calling for the abolition of the legal system? Are they implying we should only agree with, and abide by, those judgments that correspond to our assessment of the facts of the matter? If we disagree with the decisions of juries, should we immediately launch campaigns to negate their verdicts? Are said campaigns to be restricted solely to white-on-black crimes?

    Could it be that our civil rights “leaders” and organizations like the NAACP are so lacking in civil rights challenges that something as contextually insignificant as the Zimmerman-Martin verdict demands their undivided attention and unified outrage?

    Is this case to be accorded the same degree of commitment and unified response as the “not guilty” verdict handed down in the Emmett Till case in the 1950s? Depending on which report you accept, Emmett Till, raised in the North, while visiting some relatives, the Wrights, in the South, “whistled” at a white woman. According to one report, “Roy Bryant, Carolyn’s husband, and his half-brother, J. W. Milam, kidnap Emmett Till from Moses Wright’s home. They will later describe brutally beating him, taking him to the edge of the Tallahatchie River, shooting him in the head, fastening a large metal fan used for ginning cotton to his neck with barbed wire, and pushing the body into the river.

    Is this the form of “justice” these angry blacks, outraged community activists, civil rights leaders and organizations like the NAACP desire for whites?

    Since their primary concern, according to them, has little to do with race and everything to do with justice, then I am sure they will be equally outraged and proceed immediately to marching and demanding the U.S. government investigate and follow up on this data from the FBI:

    Nearly half of the nation’s murder victims in 2005 were black, and the number of slain black men is on the rise. Most of the black murder victims were relatively young – between 17 and 29 – the Justice Department said in a study released in 2009.

    While blacks are just 12.6 percent of the nation’s population, they’re roughly half of people murdered in this country each year. The vast majority of these killings are at the hands of other blacks. If that doesn’t shock you, maybe this will: More blacks were murdered in the U.S. in 2009 alone than all the U.S. troops killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to date. These figures do not include the more than 400 young black men slain in Chicago just since the Zimmerman-Martin saga began.

    Can someone perhaps enlighten me as to why the national media, NAACP CEO Benjamin Jealous, Rev. Sharpton and other black community activists are not demanding an in-depth investigation into, and justice for, these black victims?

    Maybe it is because the dead were blacks slain by blacks, as it appears that in every white/black scenario, blacks can do no wrong and must be exonerated.

    Right, O.J.?

    'Nothing more than a modern day lynching': NAACP convention, held just miles from site of George Zimmerman trial, becomes an unofficial 'Justice For Trayvon' rally

    • NAACP convention currently being held in central Florida
    • Eric Holder, who is speaking on Tuesday at the convention, called Trayvon's death a 'tragic, unnecessary shooting' on Monday
    • FBI report on The Smoking Gun describes Zimmerman not as a racist but as suffering a 'hero complex'

    By David Martosko

    PUBLISHED: 15:09 EST, 15 July 2013 | UPDATED: 16:53 EST, 15 July 2013

    It may be mere coincidence that the NAACP's annual convention is being held in central Florida, but the organization is making the most of it by issuing rallying cries and demanding 'justice' for Trayvon Martin.

    The self-defense 'not guilty' verdict of George Zimmerman, who shot and killed the unarmed black teen in February 2012, was delivered less than 30 miles from the convention site in Orlando. And speakers made sure the hundreds of assembled NAACP members knew that federal charges against the exonerated Zimmerman were among the group's top priorities.

    Describing the events in nearby Sanford, Florida as a sign that African-Americans face 'times of great peril,' NAACP president Benjamin Jealous said that blacks 'feel it every time we see one of our young sons ... walk out the door and pull his hoodie up.'
    video at source

    Benjamin Jealous, president of the NAACP, has presided over an organization-wide outcry over Zimmerman's acquittal by a jury in Sanford, Florida

    Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday that Trayvon Martin's death was a 'tragic, unnecessary shooting.' The NAACP is demanding that he file federal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman. Holder will speak at the NAACP convention on Tuesday

    In this undated photo, Trayvon Martin (L) is embraced by his father Tracy (R). The teen died on February 26, 2012 following a confrontation with neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman

    The Orlando Sentinel reported that Jealous told reporters after his keynote speech Monday that when he heard the verdict read, live on television, 'the first thing I did was walk over to my son's crib and lift him up and I listened to him breathe. And then I began to cry.'
    SiriusXM radio host Joe Madison, known to his fans as 'The Black Eagle,' lashed out at Zimmerman and the court that allowed him to walk free.
    Trayvon Martin's death, he said, was 'nothing more than a modern day lynching. George Zimmerman became the judge, jury and executioner.'


    Attorney General Eric Holder will address the convention on Tuesday. The NAACP has collected nearly 300,000 signatures on a petition asking him to prosecute Zimmerman under federal civil rights law, an outcome that could become a reality despite the U.S. Constitution's protections against double jeopardy.

    'We will update you as we work to pursue civil rights charges against Zimmerman through the DOJ,' the NAACP tweeted shortly after the verdict was read on Saturday night.

    An FBI document published Monday on the websiteThe Smoking Gun shows that in the week following the 2012 shooting a Sanford, Fla. police detective 'described Zimmerman as overzealous and as having "a little hero complex," but not as a racist.'

    Hundreds of NAACP leaders cheered Benjamin Jealous' call for federal charges from the Justice Department

    Some protesters confronted police lines, like this one in Los Angeles, California, after Zimmerman was acquitted, despite civil rights leaders' calls for calm and peaceful protests

    Benjamin Crump, who represents the Martin family and is expected to file a wrongful death lawsuit against Zimmerman on their behalf, told the crowd that that they should 'refuse to remain silent because Sabrina [Fulton] and Tracy cannot do this by themselves.'

    SiriusXM host Joe Madison said Martin's death was 'nothing more than a modern day lynching. George Zimmerman became the judge, jury and executioner'

    'If anything good is to come' from Saturday night's verdict, national NAACP spokesman Eric Wingerter told the Sentinel, 'this is the time to build a movement.'

    'This goes to the heart of what racial profiling is - in this case, the idea that a young black teenager is by definition a thug instead of a son just visiting his father.'

    Majic 102.1, a radio station in Houston, Texas, reported Monday that within hours of the trial's conclusion, NAACP leaders called an 'emergency meeting,' during which the group's national youth and college director encouraged members to 'effective[ly] get justice for Trayvon.'

    A rally held Sunday outside Houston’s justice court, and other demonstrations like it, was planned at that Orlando gathering.
    NAACP Chairman Roslyn Brock told WKMG-TV6 in Orlando that NAACP members 'can't get to how you walk home in the rain from a local convenience store to being dead on the ground.'
    'Our community was prepared for a manslaughter conviction, we would accept that, but to have Mr. Zimmerman exonerated of all charges?'

    Mark O' Mara, George Zimmerman's attorney, continues to insist that his client 'was never guilty of anything except protecting himself in self-defense.'

    An iconic 'hoodie' photo from Trayvon Martin's cell phone has become a rallying point among black activists who insist the slain teen was gunned down without justification. But Zimmerman's injuries supported his claim that Martin was the aggressor, slamming his head against a concrete sidewalk as their fight escalated.
