Reckless 2.0 welcomes Frances Martel as she shares her views on the system of white supremacy. Ms. Martel is (I think, we will be sure to ask) a white female, and also a so called "Hispanic", who wrote an constructive article about the killing of 17 year old unarmed black male, Trayvon Martin. We will get her views on why the Trayvon Martin case shouldn't just be a "black problem", some of the dubious handling of the case, whether she thinks "terrorism" is an accurate depiction of the incident at hand, and how she thinks racism/white supremacy is at work here. There have also been some confusion around George Zimmerman's racial classification. We will also discuss the racial classification confusion around the term "Hispanic", since now seems to be as good of time as any to discuss it. We will discuss if this racial classification confusion of Mr. Zimmerman could have anything to do with why he hasn't been arrested, and whether she thinks he would have already been apprehended if he was black or a darker skinned (non-white) so-called Latino, or if he did not have a white parent (who could have potentially have pull living in that upscale community, the elder Zimmerman is apparently an attorney). We will discuss whether she thinks the black "community" has shown incredible patience and restraint, through all of this, and other incidents like this (there has been no lynch mob, no pitchforks, no riots, no threats, etc...just a simple request for an arrest). We will also seek suggestions on whether she thinks economic counter-terrorism (a boycott) of all Orlando area tourist attractions, including flying into the airport, is a reasonable measure to take until George Zimmerman, an admitted murderer, is arrested, tried, and convicted of at least 2nd degree murder.
