One would think the mainstream media would have very little airtime to spend on the George Zimmerman shooting considering that a global economic debt crisis and a potential war with Iran are looming. Even worse yet, the media has decided to focus its attention on George Zimmerman’s race, which is absolutely disgraceful. A teenager lost his life because an aggressive young adult could not mind his own business. And while this is a terrible tragedy, it should not be the focus of an entire nation. Whether or not Zimmerman is Jewish, white, black, green, or yellow should be the last thing on most American’s minds right now. Even more strange is the media’s zeal to paint Trayvon Martin’s killer as anything but Jewish. The Tablet, a Jewish newspaper, recently published an article about Zimmerman’s non-Jewishness. The Tablet based its article on a Washington Post article titled “Who is George Zimmerman,” which asserted that Zimmerman was a half-white, half-latino Catholic. Many have assumed that Zimmerman’s father is Jewish because of his last name, and that assertion is somewhat validated by the fact that non-Jewish Zimmermans usually spell their name with two n’s rather than the one n George has. Rather than ask Zimmerman or his father about their race, the media seems quite content to refer to George as white or Latino.
Regardless of whether Zimmerman’s father is Jewish or not, this issue leads to a more fundamental question about racial disparities in the criminal justice system. Most Americans are aware of the historical prejudice against black Americans in the criminal justice system which leads to blacks receiving more prison time than whites for the same crimes and being falsely convicted in far greater percentages than other races. On the opposite end of the spectrum is a racial disparity in the justice system that is often considered too politically incorrect to be investigated. The meteoric rise of non-gentile Americans has coincided with a great gap in arrest rates and prison sentencing. Non-gentiles are now far wealthier than other races, comprising 10.25% of all American millionaires, 36% of all billionaires, and 45% of the 40 wealthiest Americans. Statistically speaking, since non-gentiles only comprise 2% of the American population, the vast majority of non-gentiles are wealthy. Therefore, non-gentiles inevitably have better lawyers and know more judges and politicians who can thwart investigations and reduce sentences than their gentile counterparts. Take the case of Mark Rich for example. Rich fled the country after being indicted for tax-evasion and illegally trading with Iran. While on the run, Rich was featured on the FBI’s top ten most wanted list for a number of years before being pardoned by Clinton. An investigation of the pardon later revealed that Rich’s wife gave significant sums of money to the Democratic Party.
Shortly after the September 11, 2001 attacks, the FBI arrested 5 men who were seen filming the planes hitting the twin towers and then dancing in celebration afterwards. These men failed lie detector tests when questioned on why they were there and what role they had in the attacks. It turns out that the five dancing Israelis, as they were later known, were actually Israeli Mossad agents who were part of an elaborate spy ring that had infiltrated America. Had these men not had powerful political connections in America, they would have been shipped off to an undisclosed CIA prison in Syria or Poland and water boarded until they gave up every piece of intelligence they had. Instead, these men were quietly released back to Israel without even an espionage charge. They later admitted on a Israeli talk show that they were there to document the event; meaning that they either had knowledge the event was going to take place beforehand and did not warn the US or had a hand in planning it.
In yet another example, in 2005, two non-gentile American AIPAC executives were caught red-handed stealing American military secrets to give to Israel. After some political wrangling, all charges were dropped against the two Jewish AIPAC executives in 2009, even though the government had overwhelming evidence to prosecute. It was later reported by Time magazine that Jane Harman, a Jewish Congresswoman, was bribed by AIPAC to lobby the Department of Justice to drop the spying charges against the executives. In 2009, CQ politics reported that Harman was caught on a NSA wiretap telling an Israeli agent that she would lobby the Department of Justice to drop the case.
As of the present day, not one banker or mortgage broker has been charged for their role in the 2008 financial crisis. This is highly unusual as the SEC, FBI, and IRS almost always find someone or some group to indict for financial collapses that measure even one-tenth of the size. The facts that the SEC and IRS both happen to be headed by non-gentiles, and that there is a dramatic overrepresentation of non-gentile people in the financial industry, may or may not have anything to do with the lack of indictments, but given the evidence, there should be an investigation to determine if racial bias has played a role in the decision not to bring the largest perpetrators of theft and fraud in American history to justice. America should strive to rectify any racial disparities in the American criminal justice system, whether it be black, white, Latino, or Jewish. In addition, money and influence should not determine whether or not a person will pay for their crimes.
