A nationwide melt down has taken place after the verdict of the famous George Zimmer Trial. Violent riots, random beatings, and assemblies of people burning the American flag are just the beginning. An Ivy League professor has gone as far as calling God a "white racist."
Anthea Butler, professor in the Religious Studies Department at the University of Pennsylvania, furiously wrote in a blog post: "...I know that this American god ain't my god... As a matter of fact, I think he's a white racist god with a problem. More importantly, he is carrying a gun and stalking young black men."
But, interestingly enough, God did not decide whether George Zimmerman is guilty, six female jurors did. And, it did not matter what the evidence in the case showed because in the eyes of Anthea Butler and many others there was only one possible outcome for this case: either you find George Zimmerman guilty or you are a racist.
How pathetic, ignorant, and sad. Have we, a nation where all are guaranteed a fair trial, become so wrapped up in the devastating epidemic of political correctness that we cannot even allow a jury to examine the evidence and honestly decide whether one is innocent or guilty?
Anthea Butler takes it a step further and exploits the tragic death of Martin in order to promote her own selfish agenda. She continues in her blog post writing: "Is God the old white male racist looking down from white heaven, ready to bless me if I just believe the white men like Rick Perry who say the Zimmerman case has nothing to do with race?... You already know the answer: No."
Even after the FBI and Florida's top prosecutors could not find any evidence proving that George Zimmerman racially profiled and unlawfully shot Trayvon Martin, Butler still thinks that she knows more about what happened than those who have seen all of the evidence. I'm sorry Ms. Butler, but where you there when it happened? You already know the answer: No.
When the so-called leaders in our nation lash out and encourage this violent behavior I genuinely fear for future generations. Celebrities and professors have the ability to influence the emotions of their fans and students, yet sadly they are the least informed.
Even our President spoke out on the issue saying, "My main message is to the parents of Trayvon Martin. You know, if I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon." This statement leaves the protestors to believe that Obama is on their side.
It frightens me that professors like Anthea Butler will be teaching this fall. If Butler can't restrain herself from making extreme leftist statements then how will she act professional and unbiased in a classroom?
