WELL IMAGINE THAT, 90% OF NATIVE AMERICANS ARE NOT OFFENDED BY REDSKINS, HMM, ISN’T THAT A MANDATE?
A WAPO poll finds that 90% of Native Americans say they ARE NOT offended by the Washington Redskins name. WOW, 90%! You can’t find 9 in 10 people top agree on anything these days. The poll asked only “Native Americans” the question if the professional football team in Washington calls itself the Washington Redskins. As a Native American, do you find that name offensive or doesn’t it bother you? An astounding 90% said they were not offended, 9% said they were and 1% had no opinion and could have cared less. So who exactly is so offended and insulted by the Redskin name? Once again we are witness to a group of 5 people who claim to speak for the other 99% This a Washington Post independent poll, not one conducted by Washington Redskins owner Daniel Schneider for his own self-serving reasons. Those on the offended by anything side will be hard pressed to condemn these poll results.
Nine in 10 Native Americans say they are not offended by the Washington Redskins name, according to a new Washington Post poll that shows how few ordinary Indians have been persuaded by a national movement to change the football team’s moniker.
The survey of 504 people across every state and the District reveals that the minds of Native Americans have remained unchanged since a 2004 poll by the Annenberg Public Policy Center found the same result. Responses to The Post’s questions about the issue were broadly consistent regardless of age, income, education, political party or proximity to reservations.
Among the Native Americans reached over a five-month period ending in April, more than 7 in 10 said they did not feel the word “Redskin” was disrespectful to Indians. An even higher number — 8 in 10 — said they would not be offended if a non-native called them that name.
WOW DUDE, THE SAME MIGHT BE SAID OF YOUR PARENTS TOO … SHUT UP AND GO AWAY.
In an interview with The Daily Beast, George Zimmerman decided to poke the bear by going there. In what can only be described as low rent and low class, Zimmerman took the low road and stated the following with regards to the parenting skills of Trayvon Martin’s parents, “They didn’t raise their son right. He attacked a complete stranger and attempted to kill him,” Zimmerman further went on to say, “Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin did everything they could to capitalize on her son’s death. She was never a mother figure to him. Tracy Martin couldn’t have cared less about their son. He treated him like a dog without a leash.” Hmm, capitalize on their son’s death, kind of like trying to profit on the auctioning of the gun used to kill Trayvon Martin, right?
In an interview with The Daily Beast this week, Zimmerman made it clear he has no remorse about shooting the 17-year-old boy to death in Sanford, Florida, and bears outright hostility for the parents whose son he took away forever.
“They didn’t raise their son right. He attacked a complete stranger and attempted to kill him,” Zimmerman said of Martin.
“Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin did everything they could to capitalize on her son’s death,” he said. “She was never a mother figure to him. Tracy Martin couldn’t have cared less about their son. He treated him like a dog without a leash.”
Four years after Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin, the acquitted killer is trying to turn a profit on the gun he used to do it.
WOW. Do I believe that Zimmerman was scapegoated by the liberal MSM, yes. Do I believe that Zimmerman should have been found not guilty of murder, yes. However, there comes a time to just count your blessings and go away. Consider yourself lucky and move on. However, much like O.J. Simpson, a complete narcissist and Joran Van der Sloot, another sociopath and narcissist, they just could not let it go and it ended badly for them.
George Zimmerman needs to find a happy spot and go away as I will predict, if he does not, it would not surprise me if it ends badly for him too.
GEORGE ZIMMERMAN IS BACK …
Just when you thought you had heard the last of George Zimmerman, he’s back. Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman who shot and killed Trayvon and then was found not guilty of murder, is auctioning off the gun that killed Trayvon Martin. Unreal, he just cannot stay out of the news. Zimmerman said, the proceeds will be used to “fight [Black Lives Matter] violence against Law Enforcement officers” and to “ensure the demise of Angela Correy’s persecution career and Hillary Clinton’s anti-firearm rhetoric.” Okay. Zimmerman is looking to get $5000 for the gun that costs about $350 retail. The Kel-Tec PF-9 is displayed on online auction site Gunbroker.com. Zimmerman has received death threats since putting the gun up for auction but has decided to continue with it anyway. Well, this dude is going to get death threats for the rest of his days anyhow. But honestly, what type of person would buy this gun?
SALE: One .9-mm pistol — and whatever’s left of George Zimmerman’s bankrupt soul.
The Florida neighborhood watchman who fatally shot unarmed teen Trayvon Martin in 2012 is putting the killer handgun up for auction — and hoping to fetch at least $5,000.
“I am honored and humbled to announce the sale of an American Firearm Icon,” Zimmerman wrote in his online description of the weapon. The perverted auction opens for bids at 11 a.m. Thursday.
“The firearm for sale is the firearm that was used to defend my life and end the brutal attack from Trayvon Martin on 2/26/2012 … Many have expressed interest in owning and displaying the firearm including The Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. This is a piece of American History,” Zimmerman wrote.
When will this narcissist just go away? Maybe Hot Air stated it best as they opined, ” … we never defended Zimmerman as a human being, and thank God for that. Because since his acquittal on murder charges, Zimmerman has proven himself to be less than a role model.”
IMAGINE THAT, WORRIES OF RACE RELATIONS REACH NEW HIGH UNDER OBAMA …
According to a recent Gallup poll, concerns and worries regarding race relations are at a new high in the United States. Under Barack Obama, the first elected black president, race relation have gotten worse. Go figure, seeing that he was pretty much elected due to white guilt and the misguided and naive notion that some how electing an individual because of their skin color would solve all the ills of the past and make things better. What did Martin Luther King Jr. say about it not being about the color of ones skin, but “the content of their character?”
But this is what happens when an ignorant and apathetic electorate votes for what might be the most divisive president of the 20th and 21st century. A note to Obama, you could have learned a lot from how South African president Nelson Mandela dealt with racism and a divided nation. Sadly, you are not even close to the character of Mandela. This is what happens when you elect a community agitator, not a leader.
More than a third (35%) of Americans now say they are worried “a great deal” about race relations in the U.S. — which is higher than at any time since Gallup first asked the question in 2001. The percentage who are worried a great deal rose seven percentage points in the past year and has more than doubled in the past two years.
Concern about race relations over the past two years has increased among Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and liberals, and blacks and whites. But the gap between the groups who were already most worried before 2015 — Democrats, liberals and blacks — and those less worried has not shrunk, and in some cases has widened. Of particular note is the 53% to 27% “worried” gap between blacks and whites, up from the 31% to 14% gap between blacks and whites in the 2012-2014 combined polls.
A Positive for a Trump Victory … Reverend Al Sharpton Says He Would Flee the United States if Trump wins 2016 Presidential Election
WHO KNEW, IS AL SHARPTON AN ILLEGAL ALIEN?
Many people, including myself, have questioned whether Donald Trump has the character and make up to be the next President of the United States. But wait, here is a positive that goes in Trump’s favor. Rev. Al Sharpton told attendees at a Center for American Progress Action Fund event Thursday that if Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election that Sharpton would flee the United States. Wait a minute, is this a kind of endorsement from Reverend Al for Trump? Hell, there are thousands, maybe tens and hundreds of thousands that would vote for Trump just to make sure that actually took place.
One thing that rinds odd with Sharpton’s comment is the notion that he says he will flee because he may be deported anyway. Hmm, is Sharpton and illegal? What is most ironic of Reverend Al’s words is that he probably just garnered more votes for Trump.
Rev. Al Sharpton told attendees at a Center for American Progress Action Fund event Thursday he would flee the country if Donald Trump won the election, in order to avoid being deported by Trump.
Sharpton, a Democrat, had positive feedback for many of the Republican presidential candidates until he got to Trump.
“If Donald Trump is the nominee, I’m open to support anyone [else], while I’m also reserving my ticket to get out of here if he wins, only because he’d probably have me deported anyway,” Sharpton told attendees, who responded in laughter.
