DeSean Jackson joined Marcus Vick and many other (mostly black) athletes in expressing outrage over George Zimmerman’s not guilty verdict last night*:
That last one included an instantly grammed grab of an obviously false story from the National Report which stated that Obama was coming to Trayvon’s rescue. Because justice isn’t done until it’s served in an “Earlybird” filter:
Presumably, DeSean doesn’t know how “double jeopardy” works in America.
*For the record, these posts making fun of idiots like DeSean Jackson and Marcus Vick are in no way me defending George Zimmerman. None of this would’ve happened if Fat Batman had just stayed in his car instead of trying to earn his hero’s cape. While Zimmerman may very well be the most racist motherfucker in Florida (a dubious distinction), the trial’s verdict has absolutely nothing to do with race in America. What idiots like DeSean, Marcus and others likely don’t grasp is that no one is saying Zimmerman is “innocent”– rather, he was found “not guilty.” Fortunately or unfortunately, the prosecution was unable to prove that he wasn’t acting out of self-defense. There was enough doubt surrounding that accusation that he couldn’t be convicted of the crime with which he was charged. And in case anyone is keeping score, it’s that same standard that got O.J. off… but something tells me Marcus and DeSean aren’t as outraged about that.
