It is simply terrible what is going on in America today. To accuse a person of murder or of doing something wrong when they do not have the facts is criminal. I am referring to the Trayvon Martin situation. How dare the Media, the President, Jessie Jackson, Al not so Sharpton, and others make this incident into a Black/White issue like is the case for everything that happens in the Albany, Ga area. It is very disgusting to me and my wife every time we see this happening.
When I see Al “not so sharp” Sharpton and Jessie Jackson appear on the scene every time there is anything going one between blacks and whites especially if there is a chance that whites may have done something to blacks. Where were these turkeys when recently, a number of blacks were killed in Chicago, I think 10, by a bunch of other blacks. They were nowhere to be scene let alone heard from. Don’t blacks count? Isn’t it disgusting to you what these twins do whenever they have a chance to get into the news? They don’t care a bit about justice but only getting publicity for themselves.
And, now, our President is pulling the same thing. He is supposed to be so smart yet he jumps into this Trayvon Martin situation making statements without knowing the facts only because he, and they, think that this is a racial issue with a white doing something bad to a black. I would think that he, of all people, would be smarter than to pull something like he has done. I never had much respect for this community organizer and now I have no respect for him at all!
Let me tell you a short story about what once happened to me. I was accused of doing something wrong when I hadn’t with the accusers not having the facts. It made me realize what a situation like this really feels like. Since this incident I was involved in, I am very careful to never accuse anyone of anything until I know the facts because things are not always what they appear to be and you can do a lot of harm accusing people of things that they did not do.
I was at a Detroit Tiger baseball game in Detroit after I had given a presentation to 40 plus Standard Oil dealers, sales, and marketing people at their training school in the Detroit area. I was invited to go with the class to a Detroit Tiger game and we all sat together. During the game, one of my students sitting behind me stood up and started yelling derogatory things to the black players on the field. This guy had just got through telling me what a great job I had done at the training school.
I turned around and said “Don’t do that!” He immediately turned into a monster and started threatening me and get this, my family. On the way out of the stadium after the game, he started walking on the heels of my shoes and was continuing to threaten me. I could not believe what he was doing and not one Standard Oil salesmen around me would step in and control this Standard Oil new sales employee!
I was worried that he might actually follow me home and hurt my family so I stayed at a local motel and went to the Standard Oil Regional office the next morning to tell them what had happened.
They said that I must have done something else to him the cause him the act like he did. They just would not believe me. As a result of this, I decided to quit my job with Atlas Supply Co. training Standard Oil sales people all over the U.S.A. See what harm that people can cause when they say things without knowing the facts?
Incidentally, the person in question at the ballgame, didn’t show up for work a couple weeks later. His Standard Oil company car was found at the Detroit airport. He was found in jail in Hawaii.
This country of ours, and the Media especially, prints and says a lot of things that are not true with them not having the facts ahead of time. And those twins, they too are a disgrace and need to be controlled by the good people in our great company and stopped from making fools of themselves constantly and causing our country to look ridiculous They cause a great deal of racial problems in this country instead of helping eliminating these problems.
It is time that the bashing of whites by blacks and of blacks by whites stopped. We should be ashamed of ourselves to allow this to continue in our great country.
