If racism killed Trayvon Martin, why is Al Sharpton a television host?

don’t talk to them, cause you got the only n… problem. Cause you

Is this becoming America’s first televised lynch mob?
Hosted by Al Sharpton and brought to you by MSNBC?
Let’s talk about Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman.
What are we really seeing here in the middle of this tragedy? And make no mistake this is a very real tragedy for Trayvon Martin’s parents and family.
Is this becoming about race? Yes indeed. (See here, as Al Sharpton does his thing.)
But not the way the left-stream media wants you to think about race.
History. Important history.
Let’s start with a question about you and your doctor. And no, we’re not talking health care here today.
So you have a doctor, and have had that doctor for years. You go into to see him/her for a regular physical, or maybe you have a particular ailment you want to get checked out.
What happens when the doctor walks in the door to the examining room?
Here’s what doesn’t happen. The doctor doesn’t ask for your name — because he/she knows it already. The doctor doesn’t pull out a blank sheet of paper and start asking questions about your medical history. Why? Because, if this has been your doctor for years — he/she knows your medical history already. What they open is your file, a file that contains that medical history. And whether you are getting a routine physical or checking out a particular problem, your life didn’t start when you walked into the doctor’s office that day. Whatever the doctor is going to say to you —he/she will say it based on an understanding of your personal medical history.
It is no different with a nation — or a political party or philosophy. News events may look like something brand new — but in point of fact, that is never the case. Ever. Nations have histories. Political parties have histories. Political philosophies have histories.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
