Matt Gutman’s transition has been documented. We can look at another – Mansfield Frazier who has been writing for The Daily Beast. His latest piece is a goal post-shifter as it discusses Florida statute rather than the “depraved mind” of George Zimmerman who, as we all once knew, was not attacked by Trayvon Martin. He writes:
Certainly Zimmerman’s injuries add another layer to an already cloudy set of circumstances, but all they really prove is that a violent struggle took place between him and Trayvon Martin, which is all the more reason to allow the legal process to play out.
You’ll recall back in early April Frazier argued that George Zimmerman should be convicted of some sort of crime and spend about a decade in prison in order to stave off a race war. I pointed out that “justice” is the process and not the outcome, and the suggestion that George Zimmerman should be convicted just to appease black would-be rioters is an egregious statement.
Frazier – the one who is now writing for Newsweek’s Daily Beast – wrote this around the same time as his first article:
A goodly number of people involved in the case might by now be asking, “What the hell was I thinking?” And if they aren’t asking yet, no doubt they will be before this is over. They might not know it, but they’re about to go through a life-changing experience… all for the sake of attempting to protect white privilege.
A month-and-a-half later, we can ask a similar question of Frazier himself. What the hell were you thinking, man?
