- Our Racist Zapruder Film
According to Rich Lowry, people have been trying to analyze the George Zimmerman 911 recording like it's a modern day Zapruder film. Clever turn of phrase.
But the thing they're looking for isn't a second gunman on the grassy knoll. We know who shot who. What they're looking for is reference to a racial epithet so out of date that I haven't heard it since the 80's and I don't think I've heard anyone under the age of 70 say it ... ever. If he really did say it, we're told by the race mongers that this should stand as evidence that George, whose Latino look would certainly disqualify him for Klan membership, really was a racist after all.
So the big question is, did George say "f**ing C**ns" or did he say something more like "It's f**ing Cold"?
Just from what I know of people, I'd really have to bet on the latter. Even if you were the kind of person to say that sort of thing, why in the world would you be so stupid as to say it to the 911 operator? Even racists (particularly Latino racists with a number of friends of every race) surely must know that it doesn't go over well in court right?
More and more this is sounding like the racial slurs shouted at Nancy Pelosi and the CBC as they marched through the crowd of anti-Obamacare activists to go sign the bill into to law. In other words, I don't think his racial slur actually exists. I think it's just another case of the racialist lobby hearing what they want to hear.
I myself am not a racist. But like most white people, I have been accused of it. In fact, I've been accused of it pretty much constantly for the last 40 years. Every time I say that blacks should be treated the same as the rest of us I'm accused of it. Every time I make a point for a colorblind society I'm accused of it.
But that does not change the fact that I am not a racist. It simply isn't a motivation for me. There is no secret code - no "implied racism". Those are all inventions of the modern intelligencia desperate to preserve the favoritism that they can generate by using racism as an excuse.
But to me, those continued accusations only convey that there are people who can't live with the fact that institutional racism has already been defeated, and their lives still sucks.
So maybe it's possible that racism was never the cause of their problems in the first place.
