My wife shared an article via social media that questioned the biased coverage of the George Zimmerman trial. She was immediately called out as a racist by a minority friend of ours.
The politically correct have no tolerance for opposing views. I would bet that is why The News Tribune didn’t see people celebrating the Zimmerman verdict. To support the outcome of the trial is equal to racism in the eyes of many in our community.
The TNT ran a prominent photo Sunday of Pierce County Superior Court Judge Frank Cuthbertson wearing a “hoodie” in support of Trayvon Martin. I was under the impression that judges were supposed to be impartial.
Wearing a “hoodie” is usually seen as an attempt to emulate the gang and rap music culture where it is worn as a defacto uniform to garner association and instant street credibility. I find it disgraceful for a distinguished judge to show such a bias.
How would the African-American community like to see a photo of a Caucasian judge proudly wearing a Klan hood in the local paper? I guess racism is alive and well in Pierce County. I hope I never end up as a defendant in front of Judge Cuthbertson.
