Wrong seems a republican tradition :-)
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.-- Purdue University President Mitch Daniels on Friday stood by his efforts to keep liberal historian Howard Zinn's work from being taught in Indiana schools, saying the actions he took while governor were meant to keep the book out of the hands of K-12 students.

Quel surpris!

Rand Paul Aide Resigns After Confederate Views Stir Controversy
Hunter, a self-professed "Southern Avenger," came under fire after the Washington Free Beacon reported on his pro-Confederate views. Hunter, who co-wrote Paul's 2011 book, has said Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth's "heart was in the right place" and that he "raise[s] a personal toast every May 10" in honor of Booth's birthday. He also has worn a Confederate flag mask during public appearances.
Paul defended Hunter in an interview with The Huffington Post's Howard Fineman, calling his aide "incredibly talented," but acknowledging that his racially charged writings were "absolutely stupid."

How about in Zimmerman's drug test? Oh, that's right. He didn't get one. I guess gunning down a black kid in Florida gets a pass but running one down doesn't. Makes perfect sense.
Zimmerman was taking xanax and anti depressants.
Why wasn't that brought up by the prosecution?

It's called "purple drank" because, when you mix it with Sprite, it turns purple. If you mix promethizine with a watermelon soft drink, would it turn purple? Sprite is the most popular mixture but, some people prefer GingerAle. Get your facts right!

Joe Scarborough railed against Sean Hannity on Monday, accusing the Fox News host over using Trayvon Martin's death to "gin up his ratings."

Hannity reacted to President Obama's speech about Trayvon Martin and race on Friday, asking if the president had compared himself to the teenager because "he was part of the Choom Gang and he smoked pot and he did a little blow."

On Monday, an indignant Scarborough slammed Hannity's response. "It seems we keep hearing that Trayvon had it coming because he had pot in his system," Scarborough said. "I keep hearing this from people like Sean Hannity and others on the right. Really? Would we like to go across college campuses in America and tell all white boys that if they have marijuana in their system then they are fair game?"

"In 2013, Sean, come on," he added later. "Whatever excuse there is to say this young black man had it coming to him, that is the defense because there is no defense for shooting down a young black man in a middle class neighborhood with Skittles."

Scarborough called the case "depressing." Later, he said that even others in the far right media have called Hannity out. "Sean Hannity has been ginning this up so badly that... Michael Savage has been saying that he's been irresponsible and that he's using race to gin up his ratings in a way that's bad for America," Scarborough said. "That's how extreme Sean Hannity's position has been."

Sonic,
The jury followed the letter of the law.
The case was riddled with reasonable doubt. They can't bend the rules just for Trayvon.
But I will say this though; the black community has shown a lot of solidarity over the Martin killing.
Hopefully you can keep the momentum going and focus your energies on the cycle of violenece that grips the black community from within.
You gotta stop whuppin' your kids, Sonic. That would be a productive place to start.
cycle of violence in the black community?

what about the white cycle of violence? 84% of the whites murdered in the country are killed by whites! and let's not even get started about the the white man's proclivity for rape!

it seems white male privilege extends to getting laid one way or the other, and just like most violent crimes committed by white people, the courts usually agree.

Given that rational adults do not voluntarily engage in fist fights, your question is absurd.

George Zimmerman not Horque Zimmamon.

Profiled teenager.

7:11 pm — In reply to the dispatcher's question, "Are you following him?" Zimmerman responds with, "Yes." Dispatcher: "OK, we don't need you to do that." Zimmerman: "OK."

7:16 pm --- Gun shot heard on 911 call.

George Zimmerman killed unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin.

7:17 pm --- First police officer on scene.

These facts too hard to understand?

This week, millions of Americans struggled to understand how an unarmed 17 year old African-American kid stalked by an overzealous community watch volunteer came to be blamed for his own murder. Millions more wondered what all the fuss was about. And like many Americans across the country, I naturally expected our President--who also happens to be America's first African-American President--to provide meaning to the tragedy and its tense aftermath. President Obama spoke both from the heart and from history to help us understand both the anguish so many our fellow Americans feel and the discomfort many others experience in response to that anguish.

But if you, like me, thought the President's personal history and life story uniquely positioned him to shed some light on America's dark past and brighter future, conservative commentators were quick to disabuse you of that notion. Instead, they instructed us Friday, Barack Obama is "the First Racist in Chief" and is trying "to tear our country apart." The "Race Baiter in Chief" could have been Trayvon Martin 35 years ago because "he smoked pot and he did a little blow" and must have "sucker­punched a watch volunteer & then bashed his head in."

Apparently, right-wing ideologues, almost all of them white, are the referees of race relations in the United States. If that doesn't seem right to you, that's because it's a conservative thing. You wouldn't understand.

Why wasn't that brought up by the prosecution?
More than 2,000 photos from Trayvon's phone were not shown to defense attorneys, hidden from attorneys by the prosecution, grounds for a mistrial had Zimmerman lost, including pictures of underage naked girls pedophilia, images showing piles of jewelry on Martin's bed and photos of Martin blowing smoke.

Other items taken from Martin's phone included text-message discussions of drugs and pictures of a gun and marijuana plants.

Now lily tell us about the little druggie Trayvon that was kicked out of his mothers house, as well as school for having drugs and burglary tools in his locker you idiot...

The star witness Rachel (Racial) Jeantel set Trayvon up to be a 'gay basher' and a cracker racist too!! The narcotics in Trayvon's blood did not help that night either, he thought that he was all Gangsta and Superman.

It's theculture...
