You guessed it, Obama and the race baiting (officially recognized) leaders of Black institutions and communities, are calling for the repeal of the law.
You can say this about them, the Left never gives up.
Never mind the fact that ‘Stand Your Ground’ was not a factor in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, (his nose busting punch and slamming of Zimmerman’s head into the pavement was) the reason it’s being highlighted now is for gun restriction intentions. Ginning up the race issue, they intend to reignite the gun laws issue through the back door.
African Americans benefit from Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” self-defense law at a rate far out of proportion to their presence in the state’s population, despite an assertion by Attorney General Eric Holder that repealing “Stand Your Ground” would help African Americans.
Black Floridians have made about a third of the state’s total “Stand Your Ground” claims in homicide cases, a rate nearly double the black percentage of Florida’s population. The majority of those claims have been successful, a success rate that exceeds that for Florida whites.
Nonetheless, prominent African Americans including Holder and “Ebony and Ivory” singer Stevie Wonder, who has vowed not to perform in the Sunshine State until the law is revoked, have made “Stand Your Ground” a central part of the Trayvon Martin controversy.
