Ted Nugent blamed the death of Trayvon Martin on a surge in black racism that is caused by the Obama presidency.
Nugent wrote on the conservative website Rare:
And so it was for a few weeks until the race-baiting industry saw an opportunity to further the racist careers of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the Black Panthers. President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, et al, who then swept down on the Florida community refusing to admit that the 17-year-old dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe Trayvon Martin was at all responsible for his bad decisions and standard modus operendi of always taking the violent route.
With an obvious racist chip on his shoulder, referencing the neighborhood watch guy as a “creepy ass cracker” to his fellow racist female friend who admitted under oath that that is how non-blacks are referred to normally in their circles, Trayvon had no reason not to attack, because it was the standard thug thing to do. See Chicago any day of the week.
With nearly 700 examples of this truism played out in Chicago in 2012 alone, no one can possibly dispute the recent surge in black racism increasing throughout Barack Obama’s presidency. To attempt to claim otherwise is a laughable lie.
It is interesting that Nugent calls Trayvon Martin a racist while using several racist stereotypes to portray a seventeen year old child. Nugent calls Martin a dope smoking, gangsta, with a chip on his shoulder. The fact that Martin used the term cracker seals the deal for Nugent, because to him cracker has such a long history of prejudice, violence, discrimination and bigotry against white people associated with it. Cracker is the equal to the n-word in Nugent’s mind.
In reality the moral of Nugent’s twisted fairy tale of the white knight Zimmerman triumphing over the black menace that was an unarmed 17 year old African American boy who was walking down the street is that African Americans are a threat because this nation has twice elected an African American man to be their president.
The idea that black racism is on the rise because of Obama’s election is not backed up by any data, in fact the opposite is true. A 2012 AP poll found that racism against black people had jumped from 48% to 51% since President Obama first won election in 2008. When implicit racial attitudes were measured, white racism against blacks increased from 49% to 56%.
Obama’s presidency has caused a rise in white racism against black people, but Zimmerman’s defenders have to justify their own racism, so they claim that Martin deserved to die because he was the real racist.
The idea that there has been a surge in black racism since Obama was elected is ruse designed to justify the surge of white conservative racism that was at first just directed at President Obama and his family, but has since spread to the entire African American community.
Contrary to what Ted Nugent wants you to believe it was George Zimmerman’s racial profiling, not Obama fueled black racism that killed Trayvon Martin.
