Following a number of tweets making threats to kill white people if George Zimmerman is acquitted of murdering Trayvon Martin, a former Chicago police officer warns that the outcome of the case could spark race riots in cities across America.
As Infowars reported yesterday, following the woeful performance of Rachel Jeantel, the state’s so-called “star witness,” a number of Twitter users took to the social network to express their intention to kill white people in retaliation for Zimmerman going free.
Tweets included remarks such as “If Zimmerman get off ima shoot the first #hispanic/white I see,” and “If they don’t kill Zimmerman Ima kill me a cracka.”
This is what we are dealing with folks. As I said before I hope that fear of negative consequences if Zimmy is acquitted will not deny him a fair trial.
Paula Deen has got in trouble for using the "N" word years ago back when it was socially acceptable in the South to do so. Of course she has profusely apologized for that. Yet people like that tweeter can call us "cracka" all they want with no consequences. And of course they are using that racial slur today, not 40 years ago. I wonder what would happen to me if I tweeted the "N" world. At the very least I would lose my Twitter account, as I should. It's a deeply troubling double standard.
