Just the facts: Fox News’ Adam Housley decries racialization of Zimmerman trial

Housley is sick and tired of the racialism that’s permeating the discourse surrounding the Zimmerman trial. To that end, he took to Twitter this morning to serve up some much-needed common sense:

Exactly.

Bingo!

He certainly does.

Oh, snap.

Housley’s call for honest discussion predictably didn’t sit well with the tolerance brigade:

But something tells us that’s no big loss.

Hear, hear!

  • CatHerder

    If it weren’t for racialization there wouldn’t have been a trial at all.

    • nc

      If Zimmerman was black no one would have ever heard of Treyvon Martin.

      • michael s

        Wrong he’d be treated bythe state of Florida the way this man was.

        • Todd Hill

          That’s not what NC’s post intended, and you know it. If this had been a “black on black” crime, it never would’ve made the national news. The NAACP would’ve likely ignored it as well since the incident wouldn’t have drawn a sufficient-sized crowd…

          • Ronald Green

            The usual from him, evade, divert, dodge, never actually looking at the real point being made. He’s just beating his racist tolerance drum. He will never see his own racism and intolerance because he is so busy accusing others of having a splinter in their eye, he doesn’t have time to see the beam in his own.

          • nc

            Thank you. That was my point exactly, and I had hoped it was obvious to all. Well except to those who choose to distort meanings.

            Proof: How many cases of black on black murders, yes involving minors, are getting any media attention? Or do they not exist? coughChicagocough

      • Finrod Felagund

        If Zimmerman was black and Martin was white no one would have heard of either of them. For example, this story that occurred in the same county that I live in– it occurred nearly two weeks ago and I hadn’t heard about it until today: four black punks beat up a white guy and left him unconscious in the road where he was hit by a car.

        Same with a white-on-white crime. What’s your point?

    • v1cious

      If Zimmerman was taken into custody when he was supposed to be, no one would’ve even heard about Trayvon Martin.

      • CatHerder

        He was not going to be charged at all and would not have been if not for the interference from Mister “if I had a son he’d look like Trayvon.”

        • v1cious

          Somehow this doesn’t bother you, and this is the whole problem with this case. If you kill someone, you go through the legal process like everyone else. This isn’t the wild west where you just shoot people and walk away. So if I go kill someone, and a few witnesses were like “Hey it’s okay, he was defending himself”, there should be no case at all? Who decides that? This whole debacle outlines the severe flaw in the “Stand Your Ground” law.

            He went through the legal process. The grand jury refused to indict him. The had to have a special procecuter come in and go around the law

      • John Rebori

        You do know that the Grand Jury, which only ever hears the prosecutions side, refused to indict, don’t you?

    • v1cious

      If Zimmerman was taken into custody when he was supposed to be, no one would’ve even heard about Trayvon Martin.

  • Sua Sponte

    The left and LIV’s will throw every ounce of race baiting they can at this..everyone knows that when you got nothing, pull and play the race card…

  • Compassionate_Dick

    A completely useless and utterly pointless conversation…what’s at issue here is a culture that celebrates thuggery hating any person that stands up to their thuggery, Treyvonn Martin wore the uniform of a thug and showed blatant disregard for the community he lived in. George Zimmerman was doing his civic duty, trying to legally combat a rash of thuggery in his neighborhood and in the line of that duty was attacked for being a ‘cracker ass’.

  • jms

    Racial whip? Racial whip? Racial whip?

    Three racial whips!

  • Danny Wheeler

    Man… good to know someone is also sick of the race-baiting in the news lately.

  • michael s

    I hope he includes his fox news channel co workers.

    • IBXNJ

      If this RACE crap is the only thing you can identify with I have news for you:YOU DON’T HAVE A F____ING IDENTITY!!!!

      • v1cious

        Do you deny that Fox News is taking sides? They had Zimmerman on TWICE.

  • Lord Foggybottom

    If Zimmerman is a White Hispanic, Obama is a White Black. See? Two can play this stupid game.

    • Diane Stephan

      Maybe we will start playing the game of, if your father was white, you are white. If Daddy was black, you are black.

      It’s a fine line between stupid and clever. 😉

  • http://discus.com yourmamatoo

    The left simply cannot a sin an argument, so they do the only thing they can, use the card.
    Without it . .. Liberals would cease to exist.

    • CFras

      You do know Republicans are closer to non-existence than Democrats right?

  • michael s

    Notice Housley says color doesn’t matter matter to me/most I know. Yet describes his race as white.Says my wife is black. Which proves he’s not honest.

    • Todd Hill

      It must be frustrating for you to attempt to tear someone apart based on a racial argument when your intended target is in an interracial marriage. You’ll just have to sit in the corner and sulk while he and others (me included) enjoy living in an interracial marriage without having to bow to the race-baiters of the world.

      • michael s

        I’m not at all frustrated on any level on who he’s married to. Not my issue.

        • Ronald Green

          Yes it is, it destroys your argument against him and leaves you with nothing to insult him with.

        • HWarrior13

          Odd…you kinda do seem frustrated.
          Mr Housley stepped out of “his box” and dealt with the facts (stating that he is white and his wife is black) and that frustrated you and you blasted him as dishonest.

    • Ronald Green

      What ever happened to live and let live? If his race is ‘white’ and his wife is ‘black’ how is he not honest? Consider that the argument that he was having was with blacks who were, in the beginning ‘dissing his cred’ because he isn’t black. He pointed to his black wife to establish that ‘cred’ with them and actually ended up having a real discussion with them. How awful that must be to you. Can’t throw out your over the limit race card so you’re mad. Time to grow a bit.

  • jkpalmdale

    awwww Obama voters. Travyon caught Zimmermans attention not because of his skin color but because of his actions. The only racist proven in the trial was Trayvon by calling George the N word and a Creepy ass cracker

    This whole trial has been because of the Race Pimps Sharpie, Jackoff, Holder and Obama. If Zimmerman were black no one would even know his name. Just like all those blacks killed daily by other blacks, or the whites killed by Blacks. Both of which are more then Whites killing blacks

  • The Penguin

    So, Housley is trying to appeal to both sides of this and being resisted. Isn’t this the kind of dialogue that could only help the situation? His points sounded genuine, intelligent, and hit the nail on the head. And actually got to the heart of the matter in fact. But, because he’s A) White…and B) From FOX News he’s not taken seriously. His “Words” aren’t being heard. Sounds like the racism is coming from the other side. It appears to me that these so-called victims enjoy being able to hold on to that race card, and prefer not to give it up.

  • TonyMitch

    Everything is racial because we the people allow it. I have taught my children to never answer any question that asks for their race. If the American people deicided on the census and any other form that has race, not to fillit out it may go away. But, in a society that uses race to qualify for special programs and scholorships etc.. . People also use race to play the victim card. The race game will always survive. Keep playing the race and ethnic game and keep trying to convince yourself you are not a racists.

  • MKFenris

    What the outrage really is about is not that unarmed young adult who happened to be black was killed, as a result of his actions. The outrage is that someone who was of a different race killed him. Look at Chicago, no one even gives a damn about that, no they blame the guns and not the thug mentality of the people using the guns.

  • Squirrel!

    Melanies Torres said in a nutshell, Latin Americans do not live in this country….. HUH??

  • gjsmith_62

    The vitriol is quite amazing. How many blacks died at the hands of other blacks in Chicago alone?

  • HoneyTree EvilEye

    All these negative douches responding to him are racist. The people who are constantly talking about not seeing color, but that all white people are judging them cause of their color are the most racist a$$hats around. You let racism exist. Racist words only have the power you give them. Frankly black people are some of the most racist people alive. I’m white and I’ve received plenty of racism my entire life. But when you dress like a ghetto thug, you’re going to get treated like a ghetto thug no matter what color you are. Fact is I rarely see any black kids that don’t have their pants sagging down to their ankles, treating everyone(especially non blacks) like sh!t. They’re some of the most entitled, “I deserve this because of the persecution of my people” douches around. Melanie Torres is a moron, there’s one race. The human race, there are numerous ethnic groups and “Mexicans” sure as hell aren’t white. They’re Spanish and Native Americans mixed. I live in San Antonio and for a while “Hispanics” did fall under whites, except when affirmative action could be used there was always non white/Hispanic but they have Hispanic now. This Zimmerman trial is purely about race, anyone saying it isn’t is a lie. Not just that, but racism that was pushed by the White House. Because there’s no case. Not to mention, someone please explain to me how the “creepy ass cracker” as Trayvon and his girl called Zimmerman could see Trayvon was a black kid when Trayvon couldn’t see Zimmerman was Hispanic, it was raining, Trayvon was walking under the eaves of houses in a neighborhood suffering break ins, he had a hoodie pulled up and then he started running between homes….Zimmerman has x-ray vision? He did some stupid things, and pulling his gun shouldn’t have been his first move. But he was defending himself as he was being beaten by a stronger person. Trayvon at any point when he was on top of Zimmerman could’ve just gotten up when people started coming out of their homes and asked for help. Instead he kept beating Zimmerman.

  • Ken Alan Draper

    ever notice that a Hispanic man who is a citizen shoots a Black man in self defense he is called a white man, but if he is not a citizen, sneaks into the country Illegally, commits Identity theft, fraud, etc he is suddenly a “poor brown man”

  • lisalake

    Racism and “whitey” are just the catalyst…bonus, if you will… The REAL agenda: Gun confiscation and your RIGHT TO SELF DEFENSE.

  • Diane Stephan

    Isn’t this guy married to a black actress?

  • Markward

    Shhh! Those are facts! Liberals can’t stand them, shoots down their retarded philosophy.
