Of course uncle tom powell had to put in his 2 cents worth. And that's all its worth. Rest assured America, their will be plenty of trayvon's in this world.
You will see it in the news more often because black youths don't have a lick of common sense or common decency.

So by your own admission YOU have NO IDEA what TRULY HAPPENED in the Zimmerman/Martin case;
and that Colon Powell's claim that the verdict is questionable is full of shit.
I have to agree, both you and Colon Powell, who got his rank by sucking Bush butt, are full of shit.
Stop referring to yourself as "we" you full of shit leftwing redneck.
First of all, TGO, Colin (not Colon) Powell is not an internal organ.
Secondly, the uncertainty in the Zimmerman/Martin case is precisely why the verdict is questionable.
Thirdly, let me assure you that I most certainly do not include you in any part of "we", not within miles.

As for the rest of your twisted "reasoning", try Prozac.

Sanford - Jackie Robinson had to sneak out of town.
Sanford - a married blk couple was murdered and their home set ablaze. No one is charged
Sanford - blk boy murdered and the murderer is not given a sobriety test.
Sanford - the KKK wears blue
Interesting tidbits, but I'm not sure what point you're trying to make.

I don't trust a man that violates his own doctrine.The Powell Doctrine:"Do we have a clear attainable objective.Is there a plausible exit strategy."Most importantly:"Have the consequences of our actions been fully considered".Bush the 43 didn't listen to him,why should we?
Because Bush #43 was an idiot and most Americans are not.

The only reason I'm responding to one of your mindless blurbs is that I want others to see it.

Zimmerman is a choir boy. We all know that. Even having a restraining order held against him was a conspiracy. Domestic violence is something a woman should live with. When Zimmy intervened during that arrest and attacked that cop he was in the right, because .. well, whitey says so. I believe everything white people say. All the Indians had to do was believe the white man. Now look them. They're nearly all dead.
I hope you will not include me among the rabid white racists on this thread. There are those who argue that the incident itself was not racist,(though I am not among them). But the aftermath sure is.

However,I think it would be a mistake to assume that the white bigots on this thread, and on Topix in general, are representative of America's white population as a whole. I am not trying to minimize the extent of white racism that exists in our country today, but I hope you will realize that there are many millions of decent white Americans who disassociate themselves from the ignorant white racist creatures who infest our shores.

You give it credence by your response. Let's try it again slick head or is it scab head?
If you note the favorable judge-it icons accompanying the psychotic ravings of klauss666, you get some idea of the types of sub-humans we are dealing with on this thread. Although it is clear that klaussie is a prototypical Nazi white supremacist, it is equally clear that he is not the only one.
This is one of the hazards we face as a free country.

The only reason you CAN'T respond is that you are incapable of making an intelligent,racially unbiased post.You're a"Martin buzzard"that dwells ad nauseum on a scenario and courtcase that has already been decided.Get"meds"and move on!

First he states that;

"Anyone who claims to know what truly happened in the Zimmerman/Martin case is full of shit."

Then he accesses the Group Mind and tells what "we" know about the Zimmerman/Martin case.

Thus winning the Larry Wolf Full of Shit Prize.

Actually Colon Powell is more of a "r----m" but that word gets a profanity warning.

You dumb leftwing redneck.

Oh come on - you're far more entertaining than he is.

I really love it when you award yourself your own Fullashit award.

Stop with the false modesty already.
