Maybe if Martin had just thrown Skittles at Zimmerman instead of breaking his facial bones and trying to beat his head on the sidewalk he'd be happily skipping school and smoking pot right now.
Or perhaps getting his life together. That's the tragedy. He should have thrown the Skittles.
No broken bones or nose according to the Physicians Asst. who examined George the following morning. She testified, what she said is no secret. And FYI Trayvon was 5'11" and 158 lbs which is thin, very thin. So your 6 feet and muscular is bullsht as usual. And according to the Physicians assistant who examined George the following morning George was 5'7 1/2" and 204 lbs. so he outweighed the youth by 46 lbs. He was also 11 years older but I guess in this case no one was supposed to be the adult.

“Despite what some among us would like to believe it is not because of our creative ideas. It is not because of the merit of our positions. It is not because we care about children and it is not because we have a vision of a great public school for every child. NEA and its affiliates are effective advocates because we have power.”

Hey, I grew up in a nanny type, highly restrictive NON REDNECK gun state.

Sometimes the laws work, sometimes they don't.

But that is probably outside your comprehension level of make believe and skewed realities of delusion too.

Well, the Farm Bill passed by the Grumpy Old Pricks would if you were a wealthy Congressman--wouldn't feed hungry children though. Just how many of those voting on that bill benefited from it? Afraid to do some research?

It's not so much that Carol is lying it's that she is regurgitating what Fox News and rightwing blogs are telling her. Add that to her inherent fear of black/brown people and voila!

Fox Waves Its White Hood, Calls Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson Hustlers and Pimps

Tucker Carlson dusted off his white privilege Sunday on Fox and Friends with this,I am positive that people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton do not deserve to be called civil rights leaders. They are not. They are hustlers and pimps who make a living off inflaming racial tensions.

....Lets give Tucker a round of applause for a finely crafted post-racial argument that uses disguised racism and white privilege against its victims.

First he claims he might not like Zimmerman very much. Who does? The guy has a track record as a violent thug. Hes a liar. Hes a loser. Not much to like, especially for a right-winger like Carlson. Not a lot of exterior success with Zimmerman.

So now Tucker has established his objective stance.

Then he pivots for the deep dive, saying Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are not civil rights leaders.

Clearly, Tucker Carlson isnt in the best position to judge who may or may not be a civil rights leader since he doesnt support civil rights. Thats sort of like saying you think Miss California should have won over Miss South Carolina after admitting that you know nothing about beauty pageants and think theyre all sexist scams. Carlson has disqualified his own opinion.

And then we get to the meat of the right wing argument. You cant have an opinion on the Zimmerman case because you know nothing about thisyou dont live in Floridayou werent there.

What a great argument on its faceit sounds logical enough. It sounds reasonable. Only, its neither logical nor reasonable. If you had to be there if you had to be from Florida to understand it, then legal experts all over would be silent. Then juries would have no say. Then judges would be rendered impotent.

Thats a clever way of masking the real argument and the only argument worth having.

The real argument is that you cannot claim self-defense when you initiated the confrontation through an aggressive action like following/stalking someone for no reason. The right wing is throwing bombs about Trayvon (and now Sharpton, Jackson, Holder, and Obama) in order to distract from this simple fact.

It is not self defense when you are the aggressor, when your aggressive, unwarranted actions toward another created the conflict. See, in reality, Trayvon is the person who had the right to stand his ground. And thats what Tucker Carlson and his Fox and Friends patsies dont want you to think about.

Instead, they want you to be questioning whether or not Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are civil rights leaders, and if not, they obviously have no right to voice their opinion.

For those who are keeping track, this is yet another great example of white privilege. The white male who giddily stood by one of his white reporters after he yelled at the first black president as the President was speaking in the Rose Garden also thinks he is in charge of deciding for black people who can speak on what issues, and who can be a leader/voice for the community and who cant.

Calling civil rights leaders hustlers and pimps the day after a young black mans murder has been all but excused, his life rendered less than, is the cowardly, rhetorical equivalent of wearing a white hood only obviously none of these folks would actually wear a white hood in public. That would make it too easy to ignore them.
