OH MY ! How wonderful, Fla. won't have to listen to this has been any more ! That's right all you ignorant fools, "BOYCOTT FLA." It was the higher up Politicians that brought the case to Court even though they had not a shred of evidence against Zimmerman, Fla. gave all the "Race Baiters" and blacks just what they wanted, an arrest and a trial.
And it didn't come out the way you wanted just because the individual was "BLACK". So now a few ignorant "Blacks will loot, burn, possibly end up killing some one, I guess they feel if they can loot and steal TV'S / Clothes / Sneakers this will be there justice, how freaken ignorant.

You ought to know ignorant you right wing racist. If Zimmerman would have murdered a White, he would be behind bars today. I guess you agreed with the O.J. verdict also since that didn't make anymore sense then this verdict. Now go out and buy yourself some Paula Deen crock pots and help support all of the other bigots in the South.

I suppose you think the whole jury was "racists" right ? You are a freaking idiot, The blacks aren't listening to the evidence,they are just playing the race card, if you ask the one's that are rioting, I would be willing to bet they didn't watch the trial or could care less, just an excuse to cause trouble. The F.B.I. INVESTIGATED, said there was no racial discrimination in Zimmerman's back ground, Law enforcement said there wasn't enough evidence to even have a trial, so where do you get the racists part from ? It doesn't even ring a bell with me any more because any time there is a "black" involved it is automatically racism, they cant justify there crimes any other way.If they keep on they will make it where you can't bring them to trial for anything, it will be racists even if some one gets killed. The ignorance of the THE N.A.A.C.P.(The Klan With A Tan ) is more than showing, no evidence, the jury ruled, and they are not happy with the verdict, they are a bunch of ignorant fools, " like you ".

Nope sure didn't, his blood was all over there, they didn't convict him for one reason, and that's to avoid riots.

I don't buy to much cook ware, but my better half does, and she does buy Paula Deen products, we even sent a basket full of "Butter Wrappers" to Food Network supporting Paula ! She's a great Lady, and a lot of Blacks are saying the same thing, a big deal was made out of absolutely nothing.

Mr or Mrs. Give me a Break, In the past year how many senseless black on black killings have there been in Florida or the rest of the nation. Of those caught how many were tried on TV. This trial of minority and minority has been the summers entertainment in the era of reality TV. The end of the show disappointed many, because it was not what they expected. Not expected by their ignorant selves because George Z was perceived as white. People need to learn the difference in real life and the number of pot smoking under 30 black males robbing, killing, beating and maiming others. George Z did what he was trained to do. Protect his home and neighborhood. What he and we went through was totally unnecessary. I can only hear Trevon, cursing, using the "N" word, showing off and failing to respond to a reasonable question as to what he was doing in the neighborhood. I think he singed his own death warrant and if he is what you want in your neighborhood move to Prichard they have had at least three senseless murders this week.

Yes, that is the stereotype and I know it. The only problem is that we are talking about this case and not the stereotype of a large group. I don't recall ever hearing anyone saying that Zimmerman explained to Trevon who he was and why he was inquiring as to what Trevon was doing. This is just an assumption on your part as far as I know. Zimmerman was not trained as a cop would be. He was formerly a bouncer at a nightclub and got fired for being too aggressive toward the patrons. He got expelled from Junior College because the college considered him to be too dangerous to be on campus. These are facts--not assumptions. Unfortunately, the jury did not get to here these facts.

Yes and you didn't hear this either, Travon lived with His Father, and the reason being, HIS Mom couldn't handle him, he was to violent, and you probably didn't pay attention to the star witness either, she said Travon threw the fist punch.

Extremely Right Wing. Definitely a Tea-Party sympathizer. Hate Obama for who he is and not his policies. Odds are that you are a Baptist since that is the only respectable religious organization south of the Mason-Dixon line--or so Baptists believe. View the North with disdain and love to point out big cities with high crime rates and then try to associate the reason for that with Liberals. Don't want to fairly tax the very rich or give a food stamp to the very poor. Would die if anyone you knew ever saw you in FloraBama. To summarize, there is a definite stereotype of Southerners just like there is a stereotype of Blacks in Prichard.

"and you probably didn't pay attention to the star witness either, she said Travon threw the fist punch."

You're right, I didn't hear this and doubt it. If the Star Witness--whoever you are referring to said that, then how come he/she didn't see Zimmerman pull his gun and shoot Trevon at pointblank in his chest? And, if Trevon did throw the 1st punch maybe it was because he was "standing his ground" because he feared that the stalker (Zimmerman)was about to attack him. If you were walking down a sidewalk at night and someone was following you and even got very close to you, you just might be the 1st one to react--I sure would.

Wow, all that because I like Paula Deen's cookware.

1. Wrong, but I'm definitely not a democrat. Lets see you figure that one out on your own.
2. Right for the most part. I agree with the tea party on alot of issues but not everything.
3. Wrong, I have no idea and don't care "who he is".
4. Partly right
5. Yeah, I'll give you that one.
6. Wrong, just because you used the word "fairly".
7. Wrong, nothing wrong with FloraBama.
8. I've never been to Prichard so I cannot fairly stereotype anybody there.

1. Of course you are not a Democrat--No one is in Alabama.
2. Probably the only thing that you don't agree with about the Tea party is that they deny being a racist organization yet carry sings depicting Obama as an Ape at lots of their clan outings.
3. I have never met a Southerner who admitted to not liking Obama because he is 1/2 White. That wouldn't be perceived to well for an upright Christian so I don't expect any Southerner to come clean on that point.
4. Baptist, but doesn't attend church regularly and sneaks a beer behind closed doors. Probably doesn't attend Wednesday Political Prayer Meetings at the local First Baptist Church and can't understand why anyone would want to change the name of the denomination from "Southern Baptist" because of its bad connotation.
5. Finally a little truth emerges--about time.
6. 13% for multi-billionaire Romney on his investment income and 25% for someone making only a few thousand dollars a year in earned income and you are disagreeing with me on the word, "fair"?
7. I never said that there was anything wrong with FloraBama either.
8. Maybe you can't fairly stereotype the people who live in Prichard but that doesn't mean that you don't and it certainly doesn't mean that you are oblivious to many who do.

1. I am not in Alabama
2. I've never been to a tea party meeting, and you obviously haven't either. Watching shows about them on MSNBC doesn't count.
3. You have never met me. Why are you liberals so hung up on the point that Obama is 1/2 white and 1/2 black. There's no use in being so racist. You like it here in the south, otherwise you wouldn't be here now would you?
4. Wrong again, I'd gladly have a beer in public with almost anybody, maybe even you.
5. A little truth? Not from you.
6. There is no such thing as a tax that is "fair".
7. But you are the one who brought it up.
8. Again, I have never been to Prichard. But I'm sure the fine people who live there don't appreciate the racist stereotypes you are making about them and their town.

Being from Georgia is the same as being from
Alabama. I've never been to a Tea Party rally either but the sign I mentioned and similar disrespectful signs have been well documented and reported and shown on several news outlets in the media--perhaps FOX wasn't one of them. You are right--there is no such thing as a "fair" tax. That is why we need to change the tax code. There are good people in Prichard; unfortunately the Blacks are shooting each other several times a day and robbing everything in sight so I can't blame anyone--including myself, for stereotyping this town. Nor can I blame anyone for stereotyping Southerners for certain things. If it waddles like a duck, etc. and the South does. Why do you think the Fed. wants to continue to control re-redistricting in so many Southern States if they weren't concerned that if not, a Black man would never, ever get elected to anything except dog catcher?

You are still living in times that have passed,even with current changes to the Law, the DOJ can jump in and rectify and problems.

Unfortunately you are right FastFred. The judicial system seems to think they can make the rules along with enforcing them.
