George Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder this past weekend. Yes, the legal pundits got it right. Justice was served. Yet, a few, like Al Sharpton, weren't happy with the result. Now, there are protests against the verdict happening across the country. Thankfully, it's nothing apocalyptic. However, if there's one thing that's ironic about the various rallies, it's the Che Guevara signs. Che was a racist, folks. Here's an excerpt from Che's 1952 diary.
The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of an affinity with bathing, have seen their territory invaded by a new kind of slave: the Portuguese.”
The black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving, which has pursued him as far as this corner of America and drives him to advance himself, even independently of his own individual aspirations.
Yeah, sounds like a great guy. In the meantime, DOJ is looking into filing a civil rights charges against Zimmerman. ABC's Dan Abrams says that's unlikely since they can't win, but who knows.
At the same time, this happened in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Stay classy, folks.
