If you would ask me I would say my son caused his own death.

Here is the simple fact that most all of you are missing. Zimmerman turned around to return to his car and wait for the police. All Martin had to do was go home. But he didn't. So he caused his own death.

Some people who didn't think they were racist found out they are and they are trying to cover their ass. On here as well as the media. That and a lot of black folks are waking up to the fact they've been fed a line of BS for a long time.

supply and demand?
It seems the more money we supply, the more those leeches demand from us and the less they demand from themselves.
"under privileged, under paid, & over qualified"
Show me anyone who did not have the priviledge to go to a university and get a degree in engineering.
If you feel you're underpaid, change jobs. It's a competetive market out there. If the person you're working for isn't paying you enough, go to work for their competition.
... unless, you're not worthashit and you're actually overpaid.
If you feel "over qualified"...(see above)
Perhaps your qualifications include a political science or sociology or fine arts degree. Perhaps you shouldn't have wasted you time studying something that is worthless. Perhaps the real problem is you aren't really motivated to do a good job. Fix the problem. Get out there and find a job you're qualified for.(But, I don't see a lot of want ads for philosophers.)
Another outsider looking in, with the visual prospective of a "spoiled white child!" To deny white privilege is to deny your race. Fact: look at the statistics of black unemployed vs white unemployed, then tell me how agroup of only 13% is higher than a group of 80%. Then look at when cities across the US has job fairs how the black turnout is. Ridiculous, lines wrapped around the corner. Then look at the past election &, how the rules weredesigned ( by republicans) to make black folks wait in lines for 8 damn hrs to cast their votes. Then look at the statistics of those college grads that can't find a job in their fields & see the disparity of black vs white. Then look how many black folks that are lucky to have a job are overlooked for progressive positions by a white man, in favor of a white man. I just saw lastnight that there' s even a huge disparity by doctors as to how they issue pain meds to children. Your ignorant because you choose to ignore the fact that racism never died. It's just an underline to undermine 1 track minded people who can see the bigger picture!

From his posts, NJ Raider seems to have forgotten education is the key and parents involved in their child's education is crucial for success. No matter what color they are.
And because he and most blacks voted for Obama and, thus, Obamacare, jobs are going to be even more scarce next year and frustrations are going to grow even higher, particularly among uneducated black men.
Poverty in the inner cities is a vicious cycle but they, themselves, have to break it. Most seemingly would rather be seen as victims living off democrats who literally want them there just to stay in power.
Sad to say, but far too many blacks have only themselves to blame.
NJ Raider finds it easier to blame Whitey instead of accept responsibility. He is a pawn, a nobody. Just a useful idiot for them.

I would have to put in the perspective of the family I grew up in. In our family, you have a responsibility of being honest and acting responsibly. In our family, there are no excuses. It's upon you to conduct yourself properly. If there were a son that began using drugs, hung around gangs, dropped out of school, etc., we conclude that the possibility of something happening to them that happens to all others that are doing those same things is a real probability. We aren't anything special with special protection. Given the path chosen, and knowing other parents who have children who chose that same path, and having been with them at the funerals for their children, we would not be surprised.
Yes, there would be sadness. There would be sadness when it became obvious they were on the wrong path. The loss would not be instantaneous to us. In reality, the loss would have begun long before the death.
On the other hand, if a son did everything we thought was proper, and he was killed by some gangbanger wannabe like Trayvon Martin, I cannot predict what I would do. I can say the thoughts I would have would not be nice. How I would act cannot be determined until the event actually occurs.

I believe Trayvon Martin was taught to hate white people his entire life. He grew up thinking that was proper. He thought Zimmerman was white.
But, considering the overwhelmingly obvious black-on-black crime rate, it's difficult to determine what difference it would really make.

Family physicians are MDs. But physician assistants have become all medical doctors' right hand. Most clinics have PAs who see doctor's patients for emergency visits and off hours. People who don't have a regular physician never know they're being examined and treated by a PA. Even in hospitals.
You underestimate the apathy growing among MDs because of excessive regulations, paperwork and patient loads and the feeling that their hands are being tied. They are more than happy to unload many of their patients on PAs for exams, diagnosing and treatment.
It's now the norm in the medical profession. A done deal, as it were. No telling how many MDs are going to leave the profession next year.
Insist on seeing a real doctor, not a clerk.

If you're not sure who is treating you, ask them.

If there is no doctor, don't pay and go elsewhere.

Assert your rights.

Oout of curiosity, how do you know what race I am? What are the clues that cause you to conclude I'm white?

I don't know of any person with an engineering degree that has a problem finding a job.

The liberal media will not touch the issue of exposing the problems within the black community with a 10-foot pole. It might lose votes for their bosses.
Fortunately, other blacks are talking about it and raising their voices saying 'we are our own problem...we have to fix it'.
So... are they 'exposing' the problems within the white community son?

Can you expand on their findings?

Disagree. The more aggressive they became the more they turned off the Independent voters. Sure it's what you rightwing idiots wanted, constant attacks on the president.

Bottom line is they couldn't sell themselves on the issues, mostly because they were wrong on them.
