Labor unions now turning against ObamaKKKare, realizing that it will reduce their medical benefits and cost jobs.
Labor provides the votes, while moochers and illegal immigrants get all the benefits.
That's why you want to ignore the Walmart strikes for livable wages and better worker benefits like 'healthcare'.

Glad you asked.

ObamaKKKare reduces the medical profession to a welfare system where the best and brightest of American youth will find other professions more attractive than medicine. The void will be filled by poorly educated Third-World losers like Shiping Bao.

<quoted text>Again DB, you show your ignorance! what does Trayvon smoking weed have to do with anything that happened that night. My mom didn't raise me to sell drugs or, hate white people. Though I don't hate white people, I did sell drugs. My mother & father both worked their entire lives. My mother is a church goer, my father is a preacher. As a young man, you choose your own path in life, but, the chances of being involved in criminal activity increases drastically due to the environment. The fact that you can't place your son in the same scenario as Trayvon negates any of your comments on the topic! I don't care what kind of wannabe he was. He wasn't doing anything illegal that night & was stalked, hunted like prey, & killed for it!
1 - You left out the part where Trayvon assaulted Zimmerman, broke his nose and started pointing his head against the cement sidewalk.

2 - Look up the word stalking as well, it's obvious you don't know what the word means.

Once you understand and start being honest with yourself and accept those two facts, you might graduate from imbecile racist to being a rational person.

Southern California Hispanics are mostly hard-working family people who do not associate with the black community.
Over half of the 'Southern California Hispanics ' got on a plane yesterday to visit relatives in East L.A. and decided just to stay for the better job prospects. Galt is now agrees with President Barack Obama in favor of General Amnesty for 'Southern California Hispanics'.

Blacks have been given more advantages in the past five decades than whites.
It's successful black people who don't complain. Most of them are republicans.
It's the democratic black leaders who can't complain enough while they're making a handsome living off of republicans too.
And there are a significant number of democratic black leaders. "White privilege" didn't seem to negate their rise to power but they still continue to whine about "white privilege" anyway.
What's up with that?

<quoted text>and finds it easier to ignore the murders that occur every day--just one example a 17 year old in Chicago, Darryl Green, who was murdered for his refusal to join a gang.
'The sad fact is that the media do not care about dead black Americans, unless those blacks are murdered by whites.
Never mind the fact that blacks constitute 13.1 percent of the American population but 49 percent of murder victims.
Never mind the fact that black life in the inner cities is plagued not by white people stalking down black kids, but by black kids hunting down other black kids.
Such facts don't forward the leftist narrative that America is a terribly brutal and racist country requiring endless government interventionism to fix.
Such facts don't forward the leftist narrative that white folks, particularly conservative white folks who believe in judging people by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin, are the true threat to black success.
Such facts undercut the liberal agenda of ignoring problems in the black community in favor of cobbling together a coalition of people dedicated to fundamentally changing the system.
The left is committed to changing America in basic ways.
But in order to create enough support for changing the greatest and most tolerant nation ever to grace the planet, the left must portray America as an evil, nasty place. Doing that requires promoting the lie that non-black Americans hate black people, and would dig their old white sheets and burning crosses out of storage if given half a chance. Both the media and the Democratic Party are complicit in that propaganda effort. Building on the fact that America used to be a racist place, and ignoring 50-plus years of American transformation, the left has convinced many Americans, both black and white, that America is a grotesque and monstrous place.
For many Americans, it feels so good to buy into that notion. It provides an easy dose of unearned moral superiority -- "America is racist, but I'm not, because I believe America is racist."
It allows Americans to ignore real and pressing problems in favor of moaning about vague and undefined ones -- "forget about Darryl Green, let's talk about institutional racism."
Most of all, it carries with it an easy and dismissive solution -- "let's turn power over to a chosen few who can fix everything."
Meanwhile, more Darryl Greens will die. So will more Trayvon Martins, given the fact that Martin was the product of a broken home, had a criminal history and a history of fighting, and was caught up in drug culture -- all factors in his death, and all problems the media refuse to talk about. But the media don't care about those deaths.
All they care about is the larger goal: fixing America, one fake racial scandal at a time.
now I can agree with everything you said except for Martin's extracurricular activities having anything to do with his death. Was he gang banging that night? Was he high that night? Was he looking for a fight or, did the fight come to him?

Also, I don't agree with your theory of only leftist bigotry. I'm called a negro everyday in this thread by republicans or, righties. I'm having to explain to do called college grads or wannabe intellectuals about white privilege & racism still thriving in this country but, I do agree with most of what you said. Very well put!

If Trayvon had been shot for looking at someone the wrong way while in any housing project, it would have not been news at all.
