Brother Ali weighs in on the recent closing of the Zimmerman trial, and the death of Trayvon Martin. He writes:


“I made this video in conversation with people who follow me on social media about Racism in our society. People are going to have all kinds of reactions in the comments including hate. If you decide to engage them with comments of your own, let’s be conscious about only adding to conversation in constructive ways that heal. Challenging one another’s ideas is good, reducing people to non-persons by name calling isn’t.”

    Don’t give this guy anymore attention. He’s already dug himself into a hole. Anyhow, here is some information to inform people.

    I’m sure many of you personally know or are one of those people who say “What if George Zimmerman was black, and Trayvon Martin was white. He would have been found GUILTY! Blah blah everything is racist..blah blah” Well, GUESS what? There is a very similar situation that happened a few years ago. I’m sure nobody knows the Roderick Scott case. Roderick Scott is a 42 year old black man who shot and killed a 17 year old unarmed white kid named Christopher Cervini. Here are some details below:

    That article was before trial began, but GUESS WHAT?? He was found NOT GUILTY in the name of self-defense.

    Here is an article written after the verdict:

    So what does this say? What if George Zimmerman was black and Trayvon Martin was white? Well, as far as the jusitice system goes. THE EXACT SAME THING, and Roderick Scott didn’t even have to be attacked. Also, the obscurity, lack of media coverage, and lack of outrage of this case also shows what would happen if the races were reversed. I’ll stop there though, because things start to involve party politics at that point. It’s a real shame though that stories like this don’t get any coverage, only because bringing attention to cases like these at this point in time would help relieve unneeded racial tension in situations where race should have never been an issue to begin with.

    this guy makes me sick to my stomach. he takes any opportunity possible to optimize racial and radical issues in order to further his career. his fame is soaked in the blood of fallen youth, dead soldiers, and the like. this man is an insult to all those who fight and have fought for civil rights. really. self serving hypocrite
