A Georgia jury has found all three suspects in the shooting of Ahmaud Arbery guilty of murder. Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael and William Bryan were all found guilty of murder. Arbery was a black male victim and all three suspects -who claimed to be attempting to make a citizens arrest were white males.
Accusations of racism have propagated the framework of the case and the jury heard evidence that racism was a factor. As with the Rittenhouse verdict, this verdict in Georgia was accurate to the details of the case.
GEORGIA – […] The jury found Travis McMichael, who fatally shot Arbery on Feb. 23, 2020, in a Brunswick, Ga., neighborhood, guilty of all nine counts brought against him, including malice murder.
His father Gregory McMichael, who was with him at the time of the shooting, was found guilty of four counts of felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault, one count of false imprisonment and one count of criminal attempt to commit a felony.
William “Roddie” Bryan, who recorded the incident, was found guilty of three counts of felony murder, one count of aggravated assault, one count of false imprisonment and one count of criminal attempt to commit a felony. (read more)
Unfortunately, this case is again being exploited by a culturally Marxist media and those who promote race as a divisive business model. The verdict against the three men was justified and accurate to the horrific events that culminated in the death of Arbery. However, the exploitation of Arbery’s death to advance the divisive issue of race is destructive and damaging.
In the recent Waukesha, Wisconsin, mass killing and slaughter of people at the Christmas parade, the media went out of their way to deny the motive of race, because the accused driver of the vehicle, Darrell Edward Brooks Jr, was a black male targeting white people. The racial motive was/is intentionally downplayed.
Contrast that purposeful media framework against the media narrative against Kyle Rittenhouse, a situation that had nothing whatsoever to do with race, and then overlay the events around the Arbery case, and it is clear the media has an agenda to promote racism in one direction only.
The New York Post provides one of multiple examples of the double standard that creates toxic division and conflict:
Racism was likely a large part of the motive in the Georgia killing of Ahmaud Arbery, and The New York Post leads with that aspect. However, racism was also likely the motive for Darrell Brooks in Waukesha Wisconsin, and yet the media avoids that entirely.
Race is only used as a promotional hook for the media story when the attacker is white and the victim is black. When the races are reversed, the attacker is black and the victim white, suddenly political correctness dictates the racial dynamic is not safe for public discussion. This type of cultural Marxism only makes racial animosity worse.
It is a very sad state of affairs when social division is beneficial for political and electoral manipulation. Much of this intentional manipulation is what you find when you look into the conduct of the DOJ Community Relations Service (CRS), an agency within the DOJ civil rights division.
When the perpetrator is black and the victim(s) are white – the CRS activates quickly to instruct media and the judiciary system how to handle the racial component; the CRS goal is to downplay race as a motive. However, when the perpetrator is white and the victim(s) black – the CRS activates to support the professional grievance activists who thrive on racism as a business model. By approaching things this way, the DOJ-CRS actually flames racial animosity, the exact opposite of their presumed mission.
All of this is very unsettling… and THAT division is the tool of Marxists, in politics and media.
