The Brit Piers Morgan tried to get radio talk show host Larry Elder to admit Rachel Jeantel is stupid after Elder tweeted a critical response to Morgan’s assertion that the key witness in the failed prosecution of George Zimmerman is a “smart cookie.”

Elder, visibly irritated by the corporate media’s endless Saint Trayvon mantra, bulldozed Morgan with disconcerting facts. “Seven thousand murders last year, Piers, of black people. Almost all of those were committed by black people.”
“Since Trayvon Martin had his unfortunate death, there have been 480 blacks killed in Chicago alone. Seventy-five percent of those crimes have been unsolved,” he said. “Where are the cameras? Where are the shows? It’s outrageous to act as if … black America should fear some non-black guy stalking some black kid at night. The likelihood of a black person being killed by a non-black person is extremely remote, which is why this is became a big national issue in the first place, Piers.”
“Half of the murders in this country are committed by black people, even though black people are 12 percent of the population, which means 6 percent of the population is committing almost half the murders,” Elder continued. “And you throw out the old people and the young people, Piers, you’re talking about 3 percent of the population committing almost 50 percent of the murders. … This is why people profile.”
Eric Peters hit the nail on the head today when he said basically the same thing. The only difference is that Peters is white and Elder is black, so the liberal media, if it bothers to take notice of Peters’ commentary at all, will dismiss him as a racist.
“We’re supposed to be ‘concerned’ that Zimmerman would ‘profile’ a young black guy dressed in a hoodie wandering through his neighborhood,” Peters writes, “even though the odds of any given young black guy dressed in a hoodie (and so on) actually being a criminal are very high given that this demographic is disproportionately involved in criminal activity relative to its numbers. In other words, it is not “racist” (mindless, irrational prejudice) to be more suspicious of a young black male who looks and acts a certain way.”
“Saint Trayvon is dead not because George Zimmerman was an itchy-triggered racist but because Saint Trayvon was a belligerent thug with a hair-trigger temper and flying fists. Kids on a Skittles run don’t cold-cock adults who’ve done them no physical harm – much less bash their heads into the concrete,” Peters concludes.
Piers Morgan and the establishment media, of course, will ignore these undeniable facts and chant the “Saint Trayvon” mantra, not because of any sort of real racism per se, but because of the political agenda long ago put in motion by the liberal political elite. Racism is a near perfect political weapon. It is continually used to denigrate anybody who disagrees with Barack Obama.
