All Americans Including Whites are Entitled to Blind Justice

By Domenick J. Maglio, PhD. Traditional Realist

No nation can right wrongs of the past by allowing the same crimes to be perpetuated in reverse by the previously victimized groups. There were horrible crimes of violence and discrimination that happened to Native Americans, Mexicans, Blacks and each wave of immigrants that reached the shores of America.  These crimes of the past do not grant any group license to commit them in the present.

In our present PC culture the government defines the same crime against one group as more of a transgression than it does another.  These are called “hate crimes.” This intervention into our traditional concept of justice supposedly being blind has been turned upside-down. Now justice is determined by what group you belong to not what a particular person did in an alleged crime.

White violence against blacks is headline news while black crime against whites is censored. This double standard is becoming blatantly clear in light of the aftermath of the Treyvon Martin case. The incident in Sanford, Florida was reported as a white against black crime even though George Zimmerman was half Hispanic with a black grandfather.

President Obama said to the nation, “If I had a son he would look like Trevon Martin.” As if the remark made the incident more significant to him and the nation. President Obama was raised by his white mother and grandparents. He is just as much biologically white as he is black. As president of the entire USA he should be more in favor of color blindness in justice than any other previous president.

J. Christian Adams, former attorney and official in the D.O.J., claimed the Attorney General of the Obama presidency, Eric Holder, had an informal policy not to prosecute black hate crimes against whites. Mr. Adams felt so strongly about this policy that he quit the Department of Justice.

Coupling this D.O.J. discriminatory policy with the “white out” of black violence against whites in our media is shameful. On March 24, 2012, a few miles from the Treyvon Martin incident, Mark Slavin, 50 years old, received massive injuries from 15 blows from a hammer.  Two black men were charged with homicide, burglary, and assault and battery. They were not charged with a hate crime. This incident received little if any exposure in the media.

The media suppressed 7 hate attacks against whites in the week of March 24-25th in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  In Chicago, where black on white violence is routine, on April 20, 2012, Alton Hayes III, age 18, attacked a 19-year-old white man because he was upset with the Treyvon Martin case. In Mobile, Alabama on April 23, 2012, a 40-year-old white male was brutally attacked by a black mob. In Gainesville, Florida on April 9, 2012, a 27-year-old white male was jumped by 5 to 8 black men who shouted “Treyvon” before the attack.

On March 17, 2012: St. Patrick’s Day, in front of the Baltimore, Maryland courthouse a black mob savagely assaulted and stripped naked a white male tourist. On the YouTube video of this incident the participants were laughing and cheering each other on. There were few if any national headlines or prosecution of the people involved.

There is a double standard in reporting hate crimes in the United States. Fear of being called a racist in our PC society has contributed to the self-censorship of whites concerning black racism towards whites. There are no white counterparts to Rev. Jackson and Rev. Sharpton in stoking the flames of racism in black communities.  Most whites are fearful of being called racist and remain silent.

The percentage of blacks in the United States is 13%, which prompts liberal commentators to make an untrue justification for this double standard. They proclaim over and over again that “a minority cannot oppress a majority.”  Examining history we know of many civilizations such as the Romans, the Greeks and the Mongols who as a minority in their empire oppressed the majority. Ask the Shiites if they were not oppressed by the minority Sunnis in Iraq and also by the Alawites in Syria. Ask the white victims of a hate crime if it feels any different to be violently abused by a previously victimized minority? Abuse is abuse whoever is the perpetrator.

There is a growing problem of black on white violent crime. The D.O. J. policy of not prosecuting black on white violence makes it impossible to get accurate government statistics and the local prosecutors follow this lead of not calling black on white violence a hate crime. According to various news sources, the estimated per capita range of black on white violence is as low as 18-1 and as high as 50-1 blacks attacking whites compared to whites attacking blacks.

Eric Holder should be removed from his position as Attorney General of the Department of Justice for his failure to administrate his mission of equal and fair justice for all. The classification of  “hate crimes” should be re evaluated as to its effectiveness in reducing violent crime against all citizens regardless of their group.

For America to remain a peaceful and stable society we can no longer play favorites in attempting to correct past injustices or deny the rights of blacks, whites or any group equal justice under the law. Justice must be colorblind or there is no real justice.
