note that I mentioned that the bogus, fact-devoid claims that Zimmerman was a racist or racially-motivated are an affront to progress under the 14th amendment. What did I mean by that?
Well, clearly I didn't mean that the 14th amendment should be repealed. Clearly I didn't mean that it's equal protection clause was in any way bad. No, the 14th amendment and the other civil war amendments sought among other things to eliminate the "badges and incidents" of slavery. A badge and incident of slavery is the very idea that any time something happens involving a black person, that the other person "of course" was a racist if they are not also black.
So, to be clear, I HATE RACISM and I HATE REVERSE-RACISM, it's mirror-image! It's not fair to black people to suggest that this happened just because of his race, or either of their races. It's not fair to persons who really are discriminated against that the race card gets played when it isn't appropriate. It sure as hell isn't appropriate to demean Zimmerman as a racist without any facts to support that being a motivation here.
