<quoted text>Here in my hometown, I'm known to rock out. If I was stalking a dude &, he caught wind of me doing such &, a fight broke out. I would fight until I couldn't fight anymore. I wouldn't just shoot dude because I was violating him from the beginning. Now put in context everything from that night. The emergency dispatcher first told him to not follow Martin, then informed him the police were already on their way. When he hung up the phone, he was 20 yds from the T where the fight broke out. Yet it was 2min before the fight broke out so, in 2 min & some sec, Zimmerman only made it 20yds. More evidence he was stalking Martin! Now after all those violations, the fight breaks out. A grown man.against a 16yr old kid! The grown man knowing the police is on the way & the kid fighting for his life from a stranger that stalked him for over 200yds. He knew exactly what he was doing . That's why he shot instead of getting a warning shot or, telling the boy," I got a gun." The reason it's difficult to put myself in Zimmerman's shoes is, if I thought someone looked suspicious, I would've grabbed my gun & approached the situation loudly, with my hand on my gun. Letting dude know I'm strapped & and him what is he doing here. Chances are, everything would've been resolved without the police or the altercation. If Zimmerman identified himself (neighborhood watch) & let Trayvon know he was strapped, the situation would've been resolved without incident. and that's after all the mistakes Zimmerman made.
Thing is though, we can't make up the scenario we'd rather have seen it-we can only base it on the evidence as presented.
IF it all gets the once over again-I would hope that ALL evidence is presented--rather than trying for the "poliTICal" sway, because politics should never play a part in something such as this case.

Why thuggery and violence never really solves anything. Ignorance.

So you think Johnson & Johnson would've funded his defense of he were considered Hispanic? You have to see things from black people eyes. The majority of white people see this type of injustice & say & do absolutely nothing. Meanwhile, it's happening to black folks on a daily basis. So, for the most part, it's you're either with me or against me! Y'all take it as racist because, you self identify the the true target of black folks frustrations. It just so happens that, the system is run by elite level white folks & the fact that most of y'all remain silent is like involuntarily siding with the elites. When I say elites, I mean from the top of the top, down to the court system where all white folks are privy to white privilege & blacks get crucified! If you're honest with yourself, you know I'm right!

Today's IRS congressional hearing witchhunt:

Washington (CNN)-- The inspector general who reported Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative groups said Thursday that he didn't have information until last week that the word "progressive" also was on a list of criteria for extra scrutiny of tax-exempt applications.
At a hearing of the House Oversight Committee, Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George said the information that liberal groups also were probably targeted only came to him July 9.

His audit, released in May, cited criteria including "tea party" and other conservative-themed words or labels that were used to decide whether applicants for tax-exempt status should come under further review. Since then, an investigation by the panel turned up documents that showed IRS workers also were told to look for the liberal-themed label.

"They were not provided during our audit, even though similar documents that list quote 'tea party' unquote but not 'progressive' were," George said. "I am very disturbed that these documents were not provided to our auditors at the outset, and we are currently reviewing this issue...."

It's amazing... not "only" was the "jew" able to convince "the black man" in America to hate "Africa" and his culture, but he was able to convince the "white man" of "Germanic descent" to hate "Germany" and "himself". Meanwhile... The "jew" rules with an "IRON FIST".

Morally Depraved Cowards Accuse African Americans of Race Baiting Over Trayvon Martin

Even Godwin’s law has its day.

As awful as it is for people to deny the Holocaust, and in many countries it is a hate crime to do so, imagine what it would be for Germans to accuse German Jews of not only making up the Holocaust, but actually baiting the Nazis and the mass murders if they bring up the Holocaust. Not only are they denying history and the real victimization of an entire class of people, but blaming those people for creating the problem Nazis had with Jews by accusing them of Jew-baiting.

That’s what the Right is doing when they accuse anyone trying to discuss the very real problem of racism of being “race-baiters”.

"DARVO refers to a reaction perpetrators of wrong doing, particularly sexual offenders, may display in response to being held accountable for their behavior. DARVO stands for “Deny, Attack, and Reverse Victim and Offender.” The perpetrator or offender may Deny the behavior, Attack the individual doing the confronting, and Reverse the roles of Victim and Offender such that the perpetrator assumes the victim role and turns the true victim into an alleged offender. This occurs, for instance, when an actually guilty perpetrator assumes the role of “falsely accused” and attacks the accuser’s credibility or even blames the accuser of being the perpetrator of a false accusation."

.....America is watching, and Americans are not tolerating this kind of seething political evil. Accusing African Americans of race-baiting because they are grieving over the absolute injustice of Trayvon’s murderer being found not guilty is the act of morally depraved cowards who refuse to take responsibility for themselves and their ancestors, and the depths to which their greed allowed them to sink.
