But what is also very telling that while ALL Americans consider 15% of all white to be racist, Liberals consider 27% of all whites to be racists.
And I have said this all along, Libtards are way to quick to point the racist finger at white people but ignore the racism of blacks.
Remember, you Libtards do not consider "cracker" to be a pejorative used against white people!!!
Blacks Are More Likely to Be Racist, Poll Says
A survey by Rasmussen Reports on racial attitudes paints African-Americans as holding strongly racist views.
By Jonathan P. Hicks: 07/12/2013
A new poll that looks at racial attitudes in the United States indicates that Americans believe African-Americans to be more inclined to hold racist views than white and Latino Americans.
The Rasmussen Reports poll said that 37 percent of all American adults think that most African-Americans are racist. The poll states that 15 percent consider white Americans to be racist and 18 percent believe Latino Americans to be racist.
The poll also suggests that nearly two-thirds of adults in the country believe it is possible of people of different races to have an honest an open discussion about issues involving race. Twenty percent of respondents said they did not think it was possible to have such an open conversation, with 16 percent being undecided.
The results of the survey come at a time where there have been significant national conversations and coverage of news stories where race has played a major role. This includes the trial of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin as well as the Supreme Court decision that ended some key provisions in the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
The survey represented the views of 1,000 adults and was conducted between July 1 and 2.
The results are more dramatic in relation to the ideological views of the respondents. The poll indicates that 49 percent of respondents who identify themselves as conservative consider Black Americans to be racist, with just 12 percent viewing white Americans in the same way.
http://www.bet.com/news/national/2013/07/12/b...
Among those who see themselves as liberal, 27 percent see white Americans as racist. The poll also states that 21 percent of respondents say the same of African-Americans.

Again Rouge... Stats that are very misleading.

3.13 MILLIONTHS of 1%.... of the actual population.

This is textbook sharpshooter/no base rate fallacy.

They could just as easily have said...

"We ran into Ted at the gas station and here is his opinion."

Look at the words man....

"ALL Americans consider...."

"Liberals consider...."

"Conservatives think...."

These are vast numbers.

Not that we aren't at all shocked when BET attempts to get all sciency and fails.

To Rogue, if it is a sample 1000 people out of 310 million population, it's a valid sample if it feeds his twisted racial views. Like the poll he referred to. But if a majority, a healthy majority, elects Obama, it's fraud. If 209 courts, 535 congressmen, 9 supremes, 50 governors say Obama's BC is a valid one and he was born in Honolulu, it's simply not true and, he's said it often, Obama is a liar. As I said before, with Rogue it's winner-winner for him and loser-loser for you.

Yes, he did say Martin took off running. So, if GZ was returning to his car, how did Martin end up between him and his car?
And she did not say "creepy guy" but said "creepy CRACKER"!!! Are you trying to play down the racist remarks she was making? WHY?!?
Again, following, or you can call it stalking if you insist, is NOT a crime! And in any event, it did not give Trayvon the right to assault GZ!!!
Oh, why was GZ following Trayvon? So he could tell the cops were he went when they showed up!
Is it ok for random stranger to just follow your kids around Rouge?

How about just following your wife, you know?

You are completely missing the point.

What the hell was he going to do?

Hold him down till the police arrived? Make sure the guy who was just walking home...didn't get away?

This kid had every right to be left the hell alone whilst he made his way home.

Why is that the furthest thing from your mind?

Mr. Zimmerman decided that Trayvon was "the suspect" for an imaginary intended crime discerned from reading Trqyvon's mind and concluding he was "up to no good". In reality Mr. Zimmerman was harassing a 17-year-old high school kid, NOT a "suspect."
And what evidence supports this ludicrous claim? None. I know when I'm just standing around, doing nothing wrong and someone begins to approach me, I turn and run. NOT!

Most kids in America are prone to be weary of creepy people in cars. We wouldn't be very good parents if they weren't.

The ones that stop to talk to them.

The ones that stare them down.

The ones that fuking chase them.

These guys could kidnap them or kill them.

I saw another story on here about a teen who was jailed for 5 months for putting a sarcastic remark on his facebook page. He was bailed out $500K! WTF??????

There are specific criteria which must be met to permit instruction of the jury on lesser included charges. For example in Connecticut the Whistman test is used. It's not "up to the judge" to make an arbitrary decision or to make a decision based on Play Justice LRS's approval or disapproval. Sorry, but not liking the fact that the jury was instructed on the lesser included charge does not provide a rational basis to claim impropriety.

Prime example of "moving the goal posts".
Play Justice LRS wrote:
I don't think it is right that lesser charges can be added during a trial. I know it can be an advantage for some and a disadvantage for others. Just doesn't seem right to change "mid-stream". Comments?
Mr. Play Justice has essentially stated that the practice of permitting juries to reach a verdict on lesser included charges is not "right".

Now he moves the goal post, and quite ineffectually.
Play Justice LRS wrote:
<quoted text>

And because sometimes courts do not allow instruction of the jury on lesser included offenses **some of the time** that means the practice is improper **all of the time**?

What is the rational basis for that premise?

"[I]t is settled that a jury should be given the entire range of possible verdicts in a case in which the evidence warrants the giving of the lesser included offenses,[and] it follows that defenses that are supported by a reasonable construction of the evidence should be given along with those same lesser charges." (Internal quotation marks omitted.) State v. Hall, 213 Conn. 579, 588 (1990).

But the Play Justice disagrees (because of the Zimmerman case, which he will vehemently deny.)

.....I suppose it depends on where you live when running a self-described “suspicious looking” kid down and shooting him dead is not defined as stalking.

Noun
A form of harassment generally comprised of repeated persistent following with no legitimate reason and with the intention of harming, or so as to arouse anxiety or fear of harm in the person being followed”
http://law.yourdictionary.com/stalking
Hummmm, several BIG points here. Martin was shot 45 MINUTES after he let the convenience store and it was only a five minute walk back to his house. SOOOOO, what was Martin doing in those 40 extra minutes? Probably nothing more than hanging out BUT even a policeman would stop him and ask him what he was up to.
SURE, a volunteer neighborhood watch person can not stop and question someone but he can follow a suspect while waiting for a police officer and that was why GZ was on the phone with the police dispatcher.
Now you also said "running .... kid down" down and Zimmerman at no time RAN. The wind noise was just that, WIND. The local Sanford airport that the wind was 6-8 mph at the time and that was just enough to create WIND NOISE over the cell phone.
Now, how did, and why, did Trayvon RUN around the building and cut off GZ?!? Trayvon was running in the direction of his father's girl friend's house so why did he double back??? I have asked this question over and over again and you ignore it while at the same time claim that 1) GZ was racial profiling Trayvon, 2) that GZ was stalking Taryvon, 3) that he had the intention of shooting a black man all along (when he did not know what Trayvon's skin color was until several minutes into the phone call) and 4) you siad GZ PROVOKED Trayvon but will not explain how he provoked him.
What a bigoted COWARD you are!
Just answer the FRIGGIN' questions if you are not a coward.

Ah, if Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee is a TEXAS Congresswoman, why was she in FLORIDA??? Because she is a race baiter!!!
