NBC Race-Baiting Trayvon Martin
We were traveling when the Trayvon Martin story broke and we only heard snippets of the story. What we did hear was the NBC version of the conversation between the police dispatcher and George Zimmerman, the night watchman. We were under the belief from the NBC story that Trayvon was between 10 and 12, a little boy, walking home at night from the story. I particularly keyed in on this part of the conversation played by NBC.
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he's up to no good. He looks black.It indited Zimmerman in my book. It sounded very racist.
Over the days we learned that a lot more went down; that Trayvon was 17, and over 6 ft. Then we finally heard about the beating Zimmerman took from Trayvon and knew there was more to the story, but those words still rung in my head. Now we learn that NBC purposefully altered the dispatch tape when playing it for their audience; and this altered conversation was played throughout the USA. Here is the real conversation without NBC's race-baiting:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he's up to no good. Or he's on drugs or something. It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about.No racism there. Yet we have groups calling for the death of watchman George Zimmerman to the point he has gone into hiding. We have the President of the USA weighing in to say Trayvon would be the son he never had. We have a US Congressman showing up on the floor with a hoodie, and schools demonstrating with the children wearing hoodies and flashing Skittles. Media doesn't seem to be alarmed that there are death threats to Zimmerman. The US President hasn't bothered to weigh in on that aspect either. No demonstrations for Zimmerman on the House floor; no school demonstrations either.
Most of all, where is the outrage that a national "news" channel would participate in devious race-baiting rather than simply reporting actual news?
