White Supremacy Acquits George Zimmerman
A jury has found George Zimmerman not guilty of all charges in connection to death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. But while the verdict came as a surprise to some people, it makes perfect sense to others. This verdict is a crystal-clear illustration of the way white supremacy operates in America.
Throughout the trial, the media repeatedly referred to an “all-woman jury” in that Seminole County courtroom, adding that most of them were mothers. That is true—but so is that five of the six jurors were white, and that is profoundly significant for cases like this one. We also know that the lone juror of color was seen apparently wiping a tear during the prosecution’s rebuttal yesterday. But that tear didn’t ultimately convince her or the white people on that jury that Zimmerman was guilty of anything. Not guilty. Not after stalking, shooting and killing a black child, a child that the defense insultingly argued was “armed with concrete.”
....When Zimmerman was acquitted today, it wasn’t because he’s a so-called white Hispanic. He’s not. It’s because he abides by the logic of white supremacy, and was supported by a defense team—and a swath of society—that supports the lingering idea that some black men must occasionally be killed with impunity in order to keep society-at-large safe.
Media on the left, right and center have been fanning the flames of fear-mongering, speculating that people—and black people especially—will take to the streets. That fear-mongering represents a deep white anxiety about black bodies on the streets, and echoes Zimmerman’s fears: that black bodies on the street pose a public threat. But the real violence in those speculations, regardless of whether they prove to be true, is that it silences black anxiety. The anxiety that black men feel every time they walk outside the door—and the anxiety their loved ones feel for them as well. That white anxiety serves to conceal the real public threat: that a black man is killed every twenty-eight hours by a cop or vigilante.
People will take to the streets, and with good reason. They’ll be there because they know that, yes, some people do always get away—and it tends to be those strapped with guns and the logic of white supremacy at their side.

Oh, hiya dummmy!! Honky-tonk man here, looking forward to the September showdown/hoedown!!

Read up on your facts before you post this drivel, retard. She shot AT the husband and HER OWN KIDS after an argument. They then 'reconciled", and he lied to protect her from prison (before changing his mind after she attacked him again shortly thereafter). ALL of these apes should be locked up, and the kids placed in foster homes for their own good....

Under pressure from the NAACP, Justice Dept. agrees to investigate George Zimmerman over possible civil rights violations, but FBI documents show agents have so far found no evidence of racial bias despite dozens of interviews

<quoted text>If he'd been arrested immediately on some charge, even a minor one the case would never had made the national news. Instead, Zimmerman was treated as a friend of law enforcement and sent home after a cursory interview hours before the body was identified.
Martin's parents have already settled out of court with the HOA's insurer for a rumored figure of just under $1 mil.
It will be difficult for Martin's family to sue Zimmerman in Florida Civil Court and it's doubtful that the DOJ will pursue civil rights violations___just interesting TV talk.
Zimmerman's wife still faces a perjury charge for lying about their finances.
He might be free, but he will be imprisoned by his choice to kill someone that night. Where can he go? Where will he work? Does he get to keep his gun?
It's only a matter of time before he gets into another confrontation.

On another note; a man was arrested photographing John Kerry's house, had a gun in his car.
