Violence and Blame: Reactions, Relations and Prevention

Homicide is the act of a human being causing the death of another human being. The words ‘only a gun’ can accomplish this act are not found in this definition, nor does it state that an object other the human being is to blame. It is just that simple. Continue reading

The Way the Media Manipulates the Way We Think About Guns

By Darren Davis

America is at war right now. There are people that are fighting tooth and nail to deny our right to the 2nd Amendment. There is no way we can deny that there has been an abundance of violence lately. We have the shooting in Aurora, the Sandy Hook Shooting, the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the list goes on and on. As tragic as these events are, the media seems to be looking at things the wrong way. By doing this, we have legislators that are actually suggesting that we place limits on our right to bears arms. This reaction is heavy-handed and isn’t going to solve the actual problem.

#MoralMondays: Rev. Barber Politicizes Martin Verdict (video)

At the last “Moral Monday” in Raleigh, Reverend Barber returned to his favorite card in the deck and gave a speech about Trayvon Martin. In the press release that accompanied the video, the NC NAACP boasted:

Less than 48 hours after the verdict in the murder of Trayvon Martin, Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II flew back to NC from the National NAACP Convention to deliver a personal and passionate message to the Moral Monday 11 gathering at the NC General Assembly.

Yes, he dashed back to take advantage of this tragedy to score political points. Not something I would have bragged about. If that introduction wasn’t bad enough, the speech itself was far worse. Barber describes in his speech about what happened to Martin was a “lynching” and compares the verdict to Emmett Till in 1955:

Fourteen-year-old Emmett Till was visiting relatives in Money, Mississippi on August 24, 1955 when he reportedly flirted with a white cashier at a grocery store. Four days later, two white men kidnapped Till, beat him, and shot him in the head. The men were tried for murder, but an all-white, male jury acquitted them. Till’s murder and open casket funeral galvanized the emerging civil rights movement.

How repugnant is this comparison, not to mention irresponsibly misleading?

This is the face of “Moral Monday”?

Here’s the video:
