On page 52, Derrick Bell's idol Chiara, the black martyr-goddess-alien prophet, continues delivering the Afrolantica Legacies, here blaming whites for the personal failings of a minority of black Americans' embrace of cracker culture:

"But out of their frustration and despair, many of your people are turning to violence, though mostly against one another. And many more are doing violence to themselves."

Recall that Bell blamed disappearing industrial jobs for inspiring inner city youth to sell crack. Here he identifies abstract feelings of "frustration and despair" as inspiring the nihilism of the gangbanger lifestyle and ghetto rap culture. To Bell, all black problems stem from the ongoing trauma of living in a white supremacist society. This foundational dogma of Critical Race Theory distorts believers' ability to interpret reality. Every piece of new information must first go through the believer's emotional conviction that a grand conspiracy ("The Man") exists to protect racist white criminals and oppress innocent black males.

At The Huffington Post last night:

Newly released video of George Zimmerman at the Sanford Police Department the night he shot Trayvon Martin to death show the neighborhood watch volunteer without blood on his clothing or bruises on his face or head. His clean-shaven picture seems to contrast with the violent beating he told police he endured at the hands of Martin, 17, who Zimmerman said attacked him from behind.

The video, obtained by ABC News, appears inconsistent with Zimmerman’s recently leaked statement to police that he was in a death struggle with Martin before Zimmerman shot him in the chest in self-defense. Zimmerman told investigators that Martin jumped him from behind, punched him in the nose and pounded his head into a sidewalk, according to a police report first described by the Orlando Sentinal.

So was there a racist police conspiracy to deny justice to Trayvon?
