George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin and Legal Bias
This article is a good bias source especially because it is about these two men who have both different races. All of which explains why neither side in the Martin/Zimmerman saga is defending the basic fairness of our judicial system.
Both agree that America’s courts are biased. They just disagree about whom they’re biased against. “We live in a world where there isn’t equal justice. This case never, never would have been brought if the races were reversed,” said one TV pundit the day after the verdict. Al Sharpton? No, Ann Coulter, arguing that America’s judicial system is massively skewed against whites.
“If Floridians are of a mind to let off a little steam, they might usefully burn down the Sanford courthouse and salt the earth. The justice system revealed by this squalid trial is worth rioting over,” added a well-known columnist. Cornel West?
No, National Review’s Mark Steyn, arguing that the trial was absurdly slanted against Zimmerman. The author, Peter Beinart, is author of The Crisis of Zionism (Times Books, 2012) and editor of the Daily Beast blog, Open Zion, which fosters an open and unafraid conversation about Israel, Palestine and the Jewish future.
He is also Associate Professor of Journalism and Political Science at The City University of New York, Senior Political Writer for The Daily Beast-Newsweek, and a Schwartz Senior Fellow at the New America Foundation. His first book, The Good Fight: Why Liberals—and Only Liberals—Can Win the War on Terror and Make America Great Again, was published by HarperCollins in 2006.
His second book, The Icarus Syndrome: A History of American Hubris, was published by HarperCollins in 2010. He lives in New York with his wife and two children.
I found that in this article that I could agree upon when he had mentioned about our government system especially of today that we have a black democratic president while our republicans are all whites. He stated his is what the debate over Saturday’s verdict is really about.
It’s another skirmish between those black and white Democrats who believe racism remains a grave problem and those white Republicans who think political correctness is a bigger one. It’s not just that most Republicans don’t worry much about discrimination against blacks. They’re increasingly worried about discrimination against whites. According to a 2011 survey by the Public Religion Research Institute, almost two thirds of Tea Party supporters consider discrimination against whites as big a problem as discrimination against blacks.
People who consider Fox News their most trusted news source are almost twice as likely to consider “reverse discrimination” a “critical” issue as they are to feel that way about the old-fashioned, white-on-black kind. My opinion on his topic or article s that it most strongly influences is with ethnicity due to the fact that George Zimmerman is a half-blood white. I haven’t seen any type of stereotyping because in this case I am neither agree to the democratic or republican way.
