The Tayvon Martin Jury Verdict Highlights the Injustice Minorities Like Fil-Ams Face

There are 109 comments on the www.philnews.com story from Jul 15, 2013, titled The Tayvon Martin Jury Verdict Highlights the Injustice Minorities Like Fil-Ams Face. In it, www.philnews.com reports that:

Two words “not guilty” from the six-person jury at the Sanford, Florida courthouse where George Zimmerman stood accused of killing seventeen year old black teenager Trayvon Martin has sent shockwaves of disbelief across America. For minority communities like Filipino-Americans, that verdict is painfully difficult to accept. For although the United States has come a long way in race relations—even electing its first black president—there is still an undercurrent of racism that pervades suburban communities where minority teenage boys are instinctively “profiled” as troublemakers and juvenile delinquents ...

Typing in all caps doesn't help your argument. Notice how I mentioned "Rich corporations" of the White man as well.

And we're not jumping on the White man's bandwagon. Not historically but recently, you guys talk a lot of talk about being men but many of your "race" demonstrate no responsibility whatsoever towards family. And despite all the White Liberal social programs to help you guys, you like to complain a lot and do nothing to better your situation.(through many observations I have come to this conclusion)

Your mind is extremely warped. As customers if you don't like the product or service don't buy it. Also, don't Blacks love sneakers, smart phones, hondas etc. made by Asian folk?
Your argument is lame.
It's called having to compete, survive and adapt.
I'm tired of my tax money going to rich war mongering corporations and to poor freeloaders. Grow up please.
do not BLACKS PAY TO GET THEM. RESEARCH, ASIANS ARE ROBBING AND STEALING RESOURCES FROM AFRICA. YOUR PEOPLE ARE NOT WITHOUT SIN. YOU DO NOT KNOW THE OPPRESSIVE HISTORY OF BLACKS WHO HAVE TRIED TO OVERCOME IT

About blaCKS COMPLAINING, THAT IS media lies hyped up by zionist jews. the averge black person really do not do that-complaining. you should research black wall street, on youtube. ry is very intereting and show how blacks in the early america history tried to help themselves but were killed, hung, and theathen by white supremacy. this is a deep story. many race of people think the black race is horror but we blacks say the same that the race must help thmsevs.

Why should I talk about Whites when you as a Black guy are talking about Asians on the Asian American forum. Why are you steering the topic?

Africans are letting Chinese trade for resources because certain people from both sides are profiting. More crying victim mentality? What part of Africa are you from anyway? I'm sure Africans don't see the same way as you do.

Regular black folks, blah blah. 1/2 of your mothers have no father at home, 1/2 of your kids keep failing to graduate high school. Who are you going to blame?

I've only been in Florida for a few months but from what I can see, it's the blacks and the media who are destroying race relations in this country.
Teenage blacks get robbed, beaten and/or murdered every day here by other blacks and its hardly noteworthy. It only seems to be a huge ordeal when a non-black kills a black, and then regardless of the actual curcumstances.
I don't appreciate this author making a connection between Fil-Am and African Americans. All of the Fil-Am I met here are trying very hard to assimilate into the suburban model of hard work, education and playing by the rules. From what I can see, this is not the goal of majority of blacks.
This is from my limited perspective, but it's what I see here daily. While I believe everyone is equal and entitled to equal rights, I also believe that you reap what you sew.
WHY ARE YOU DISSCUING BLACK PEOPLE. BAD MOUTH OTHER RACES
VARIOUS asian groups hate each other wanna be white.

Gary Indiana is another good example. Whine about being poor but don't try to clean up their own ghetto or make it better. Most Filipinos in the city's try to live outside of the Hoods knowing it's not safe for their kids.

I was not here when it started but I'm told that it was clearly self-denfense from the very start. It was so clear cut that the man was not even charge for some time... until the protests and cries of racism got out of hand. The police felt pressured to bring charges even though there was no evidence to convict. It just waste so much time and money and slow the system for those who need justice.
WHITE MAN KILLS ASIAN MAN. BIATCH. YOU ASIANS ARE SO SNEAKY AND RACIST. I HOPE BLACKS RIDE TO YOUR HOOD AND KILL THE ASIANS. LEAVE AMERICA YOU UGLY TIGHT EYED MONSTER WHO WANT TO BE WHITE.

Good points, Maricel. Most black crime is black on black. Then if it is anyone else on black, they scream it being a race crime. I see it in Albany, NY area as well.
Recently near Albany, NY, a young black child was hit and killed in the street by a car. It was in a predominate black area. So the black community gets together and screams that the city does not care about the blacks because they did not put a stop light where the child was hit by a car. How about you watch your freakin kid and not let them run the streets and that wont happen!? For YEARS there was no issue with that corner.
The cries of racism is getting tiring here in the US. This country has come a long ways and even voted in a black president not once but twice. So enough of the garbage. Enough of the excuses.
I dont think I have ever even seen any Asian race crime mentioned on the news where I live. And there is plenty of an Asian population. I know it is the same in Florida too.
Again, Im not saying that racism is not happening because it is all over not just in the US but in the world.
YES asians cry and complaint often. bitaching vids

What's the point of trying to have a discussion with you if you can't reason and desire violence?

Again, you're angry and clearly scapegoating Asians, your problems in America have no cause nor result from Asians. Be responsible, take care of your own and yourself.

It's also extremely dumb to accuse someone of "Trying to be White". I try to be civil, build community with whomever deserves it, but clearly you've been avoiding the issues I've been bringing up about the Black American community. Keep dodging reflective discussion, as you keep avoiding personal growth. Good day.

you say you are being reasonable while at the same time being racist by judging the whole black race as bad. there are many successful blacks. can what a few bad people be blame on a whole group of people.

The government must have money to throw away doing all that work around the Arch. If it wasn't for Bush Stadium, I'd say sell the Arch for scrap metal. That is one rough looking neighborhood.
Wonder where is Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, and rest of gang. Like the Aussie newscaster lady :

this place is more than just a fixer-upper im afraid and not so agreeable to western wives and kids.

if you have that great American pioneer spirit though id say bring them along and break new territory. this place is crying for educated beings. careful with that male dominance thing though.
