Michael Dunn Shot and Killed Jordan Davis and These People Support Him For Doing It
Jordan Davis was shot and killed by Michael Dunn because he was a black teenager. The media called it the “loud music” murder because Michael Dunn demanded Jordan Davis lower his music at a gas station. When Jordan Davis refused, Michael Dunn did not shoot Jordan Davis because of loud music, Michael Dunn shot and killed Jordan Davis because Jordan Davis was a young black man who dared to “disrespect” Michael Dunn, a white man, by not catering to his demand. Once this happened, Michael Dunn wanted to live out a sick fantasy where he had “no choice” but to be a “hero.” He had to “shoot and kill” because the “thugs” were out to get him.
Michael Dunn is a racist. And, yesterday, a jury in Florida found him guilty of 3 out of 4 counts. However, that one count the jury could not decide on? That was the one that said he actually murdered a boy.
This will make many of you angry. It should. Even though Michael Dunn will be going to prison, yet another man has gotten away with murdering a black boy in the good ‘ole US of A.
However, some people (racists) out there are mad for a very different reason…they believe Michael Dunn is “innocent” (note: they’re saying innocent, not found “not guilty,” because there is a big fucking difference) and that killing a young black male is “doing nothing wrong”…
Sounds like that dude is just itching to be the next Michael Dunn.
If Michael Dunn is “innocent,” then who do they blame?
They blame Jordan Davis, the teen who was shot and killed because “I love the black community but that black boy asked Dunn to kill him when he played the black music too loud.”
They blame Jordan Davis’ friends who were in the car with Davis when they escaped death as Michael Dunn shot and killed Jordan Davis.
They blame the system, the media, you, me, everyone but Michael Dunn, the man who chose to shoot and kill a young black man.
Sometimes, to clarify the things people are saying, you need to dig a little further into their Twitter history. For example…
That person thinks Michael Dunn is innocent, says they would shoot “thug” black boys; and in an older tweet talking about the George Zimmerman trial, complains “race is annoying.”
This person also has interesting views about race in America and also says she too would have no problem shooting and killing black teens. However, when discussing the Jody Arias trial last year she had some very interesting Biblical views on those who “inflict injury.”
Yet another white lady is sick and tired of “hearing about race.” It’s 2014 and no big deal now, however, I guess she had no problem discussing race when she made that “joke” on Twitter a few years ago. Gotta’ love people who believe racism is over and make racist “jokes.”
…and when someone called Maximillian (lmao) out on that tweet:
Guess Maximillian (lmao) still has a long way to go.
Cindy here is another white woman who doesn’t believe in racism and then, in one tweet, says the most hilarious contradictory two sentences in the history of the internet.
But, just in case that didn’t spell it out clear enough for you…
Now, I’m sure there are some of you (idiots) out there who do not think describing a black male as a “thug” is racist. My answer to you is brought to you by Twitter user 'big daddy tom’:
There is one thing here that these repugnant little slimeballs would like to leave you with, and that is that there is a “lesson to be learned” when a white man shoots and kills a black teenager.
Is the lesson that the very act of being a young black male in America puts you in danger? Is the lesson that, yes, in the year 2014 racism is alive and race is very much an issue? Or is the lesson that - …
“Hopefully this case teaches people to turn their music down at the gas station.”
“And our taxes paid for that trial. We just paid to see a murderer walk free after killing an innocent unarmed little boy. #GodBlessAmerica” - referring to the George Zimmerman trial.
“BET, I’m so proud of your coverage on #Trayvon. Enjoyed every moment. So educational and inspiring. This is not #over. Its the #beginning”
“This world just got so much scarier. RIP Eric Garner & God bless his family during this time of blatant & horrifying injustice.” - linked from instagram where she actually has a text post with Garner’s last words.
“It’s sickening, and I’ve been reading so many people saying, ‘Why are we surprised?’ That’s what’s really sad: that we should somehow be used to being treated like animals…It’s gotten to the point where people feel like there’s no accountability: If you are law enforcement and you do something to a black person, you can get away with it.“ - from a Rolling Stone interview last year
you don’t have to like her… but could you stop lying on her? could you know what you’re talking about before you say something?
Think about it for a sec…about how the entire script ʇoƃ pǝddıןɟ in both the Zimmerman and Dunn trials, and how what passed for “reasonable fear” was, in fact, a racist, angry, *armed* and grown ass man, initiating a confrontation—with an *unarmed* minor—then escalating that confrontation, and then being murderously violent, and then after all of that, still saying with a straight face, “well, I thought they were about to become as violent as I already was. And they were Black. So I had to kill them”
AND THEN SOMEONE ON THE JURY GOES: OK, I CAN TOTALLY SEE YOUR POINT
George Zimmerman called the cops on Trayvon Martin because he looked suspicious. He was TOLD BY THE FUCKING COPS NOT TO FOLLOW HIM, but the jackass did.
This is a teenagers worst FUCKING nightmare. He is being followed by a strange man who isn’t in uniform. He is most likely afraid of being kidnapped or murdered and HE IS MURDERED. BY A TRIGGER-HAPPY JACKASS WHO WANTS TO BE A COP.
Zimmerman had presumed that he had some weapon in his hands. No, he had an Arizona and a bag of fucking skittles. ZIMMERMAN SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING A CHILD.
I’ve talked this over many times with my mother. If I had been in Trayvon’s place, I would have fought Zimmerman. My mom said that I better have.
He killed Trayvon in self-defense, they say. Trayvon fought in SELF-DEFENSE.
THE SELF-DEFENSE SHOULD BE IN FAVOR OF TRAYVON, BECAUSE HE HAD A RIGHT TO FEAR FOR HIS LIFE ON A RAINY NIGHT IN WHICH A MAN IS STALKING HIM, NOT IN THE FAVOR OF THE MAN WHO MURDERED BECAUSE HE’S A LITTLE BITCH. HE HAD NO NEED TO FEAR FOR HIS LIFE.
HE GOT PUNCHED IN THE FACE. HIS NOSE WAS BROKEN. IF I GOT IN A FIGHT AT SCHOOL AND BROKE SOMEONE’S NOSE, WOULD THAT GIVE THEM A RIGHT TO SHOOT ME IN THE CHEST? HELL TO THE FUCKING NO.
I haven’t got a fucking idea as to what went strong with the stupid-as-shit jury, but you jackasses made the wrong decision. Zimmerman should be in jail and Trayvon should have been brought peace.
As a great man (Guy) once said “To the living we owe respect, and to the dead we owe the truth.“
I’ve been following #Ferguson since August 9, just a few hours after Mike Brown was killed actually. About a week or so later I decided to start compiling info on the murder of Mike Brown for two reasons:
1. I remembered how hard it was keeping up with the details from the George Zimmerman trial and details about Mike’s death were already confusing. Within the first few days, or maybe even hours, Mike was accused of stealing candy, (2 boxes of) swisher sweets, and then it was jaywalking.
2. Everything was on Twitter which made it much easier to follow along and collect info.
Anyway, I started compiling all of the information I could find and after about a week and a half I already had TONS of links.
I created this blog to help keep all of the information organized, mostly for myself, but also for anyone else who wanted to follow along. I knew people thought the updates were helpful but I honestly never expected 29,000+ followers from all over the world.
i have always been really eager to have children like….. always, but i just remember being ten and saying i didn’t want to have black kids and that i only wanted them if they’d be white and blonde and i remember people laughing and people saying “well then you’ll have to adopt! *white adult laughter eruption*” and i’d carry on with my ten year old day but it makes me want to cry that 1. at ten years old (and younger) while i didn’t necessarily understand why i felt the ways i did, i knew having black children wasn’t good. and 2. that the adults in my life didn’t see the deep fucking implications of what i was saying. at ten years old i realized the worth or lack there of of someone who looked like me, who was me, and didn’t want to be apart in bringing another one into the world.
i remember when the sandy hook school shooting happened. it was absolutely fucking horrific, and being from new england it hit pretty close to home. but i remember watching the news in my apartment, living in chicago at the time, and a woman said “our children can’t die like this” - i had been living in chicago for about two and half years at that point, where children die “like this” every day and it was the first time i asked who are our children? because innocent black and brown children die everyday and no one ever hears about it. i remember following the george zimmerman trial. i remember watching the blatant execution of a teenage boy be bastardized. justified. watching the news not show a nice school picture of trayvon like they would anyone else but rather chose to show pictures of him shirtless flipping off a camera. just this past weekend with the UCSB shootings. hearing yet again the backstory of mental illness to clean up a white (man’s) crime. he wasn’t a thug, he wasn’t a punk. he was lonely, he was upset. he was white, we owed him that sympathy.
my parents loved the hell out of me. they told me i was beautiful and smart and important everyday but that alone could not and can not contest with the fact that as a child i was able to understand that people who look like me aren’t important. that people who look like me will be swept to the side. that people who look like me can be killed and forgotten. that people who kill people who look like me can do so without consequence. i am lucky enough to have built a community both on the internet and in my every day life that has allowed me to unpack and discuss these internalized feelings and issues but not everyone has that. i am asking you, whether you personally feel connected to this or not, to never stop talking about it, calling it out and demand that it changes because i finally want to bring a child into the world that looks like me and i don’t want it to take 20+ years for that child to realize they’re worth something to someone other than me.
I always thought one of the saddest things about the Zimmerman trial was when Rachel Jeantel said that, Trayvon told her, on the phone, seconds before he died, he thought some crazy male rapist was following him home.
Young black dudes in America get vilified so much, you’ve turned most of them into scared, paranoid, anxious wrecks.
