Pandering to the Black voters in the City of NY

Posted on 14 July 2013 by Community Voice NY

Late last night the jury returned their verdict in the Florida George Zimmerman case, “Not Guilty”.
There was immediate reaction from some of the NYC Mayoral contenders running in the Dem Primary

Trayvon Martin was killed because he was black. There was no justice done today in Florida.

#NoJusticeForTrayvon, no peace in our hearts. Thoughts and prayers for The Martin Family.

Trayvon Martin’s death was a terrible tragedy. This decision is a slap in the face to justice. #nojusticefortrayvon

Keep Trayvon’s family in our prayers. Deeply unsatisfying verdict. Trial by jury is our only choice in a democracy.

Let’s make the legacy of Trayvon a commitment to ending racial profiling.

Speaker Quinn:

“Trayvon Martin was an innocent, unarmed young man with a full life ahead of him when he was tragically shot to death last February. Today’s acquittal is a shocking insult to his family and everyone seeking justice for Trayvon.

We must renew our commitment to ensure Trayvon did not die in vain. His senseless killing demonstrates the need to reform the irresponsible and dangerous “Stand Your Ground” laws in place in jurisdictions across the country.

But we must also put an end to a culture that presumes any young man of color – little more than a child – is looking to commit a crime, simply because he was walking down the street. This is about what kind of nation we’re going to be – a nation driven by fear and suspicion, or one that truly and fundamentally believes that all of us should be treated equally.”

 

One can only wonder where these politicians were at the time of Rubashkin’s miscarriage of justice.

It is clear that they are pandering to the Black Community hoping to “cash in” on this unfortunate and terrible mishap in a Florida community which captured the attention of the Nation.

It is shameful that rather than promoting calm acceptance of the jury’s verdict, these politicians are looking to capitalize on this tragedy and in the process fanning the flames of racial hatred in America.

Included in the hapless list of panderers is Christine Quinn who urged her fellow Dem contenders not to pander to the Orthodox Jewish Community.

SHAME, SHAME.

None of these panderers deserve the votes of Orthodox Jewish Community.

    Your editorial is right on mark but i do need to make one exception. Any politician, candidate or office holder who will not put his people first won’t care about any other people. Therefore i believe Bill Thompson’s comment was the most sincere. His commentmade me feel more comfortable with Bill Thompson as the most credible of all of them..He just got my family’s and my vote that’s at least 9 votes…

    I guess we should all vote for Erick Salgado then.
