Just takin out the garbage , if a white had been shot i wonder how many white liberals or blacks would be out there protesting , about time whites got their priorities straight.
If Sands was there he would be marching crying his eyes out the skunk, sands and his ilk are what is wrong with NZ gutless fence sitters , worse than the mowree at least mowree don't sell their own people out.
Whites have lives, and their own family's to deal with, They work so the head rila can steal their money so it can be handed to people like this. They don't have time to waste on marching to look like idiots.

What did the protesting do for Trayvona Martin Thug, NOTHING.

Humans know the family must work it out and go about the system the correct way.

How does robbing a walmart change what happened. Only animals think this way.

The media pulled the same garbage, showing him in a graduation robe when he's been a criminal his whole life with juvenile offenses and several felony's.

Being a black senior citizen here are a few suggestions for the current younger black generation.
Don't break the law and place yourself in a situation with the police that will become confrontational and possibly getting yourself shot.
Stop calling each other the n-word and pull up your pants. Doing this has set us back 50 years and we have lost all the respect and equal rights we have fought for all those years.
Stop being so emotional over a shooting of someone that you do not even know personally. If a black cop shot a white kid the white community would just accept that the kid screwed up and that was the consequences of his actions.
Stop rioting over any type of injustice that you feel was done because of our race. You are showing the world that we react only using our emotions and not our intelligence. This degrades us and portrays us as being less intelligent and not able to solve conflicts without using our emotions and by being impulsive.
Stop using "affirmative action" options to obtain jobs. Affirmative action was needed many decades in the past but it actually hurts us now. We lose respect and credibility by obtaining a job because of our race. We need to prove that we are on the same level and have the qualifications and intelligence to obtain that desired job without using the race card to acquire it.
And as you see as I write this we need to stop using "we" when referring to our own community. The US is now comprised of Mexicans, Puerto Ricans and many other races that are now becoming the majority and outnumbering the white community. In all black community sermons the word "we" is used and that is actually separating us from the other communities. In other races and their church's/places of worship they do not use the word "we".
Using the word "we" is telling the other communities that we want to be segregated from them and that is not what we fought for all these past years.
We need to start respecting ourselves (no more calling each other the n-word as a greeting to one another, etc.) We will never be accepted as an equal race if we keep degrading each other.
Absolutely agree with you. I too am black and try to express the same values as you mentioned. A Latino friend of mine told me a few years ago that serveral of hia family believed the black community segregated itself and they didn't understand it.

Lol, none of the people responding are Somalis. Let alone does it have anything to do with them.
None the less, most of the facts have yet to be presented yet. So how can on really side? As of now it's cop killed an unarmed man form 30 feet away with his gun. He later lied about what happened. There were also video tapes released by the police "showing" the man that was killed robbing the store. This was later used as a justification by the police and the man that killed him as a justification of his actions. BUT, it turns out was not the man. In fact, the police officer never knew about the robber until after the shooting.
As you can see all the evidence is slowly coming out. Soon we will have the full picture in a matter of time.

If the guy fought with the cop ,he got what he asked for. If the guy had his hands up and was then shot, the cop needs to be prosecuted and at the very least booted off the force. The guy who died was headed towards prison at best and the graveyard at worst. The guy who lost his life was a criminal, of that there is no doubt. This is America and we do not practice SHARIA LAW, so just being a criminal is not a death penalty offense, on it's own.

Ignoring your pejorative use of the word "animal" , it is hardly the case that those with the disorders mentioned are always aware that they need help. Given the following statement, those people would have to be taught that they need help.
If in fact people cannot behave appropriately unless they have been taught to do so, then their behavior cannot be considered a matter of choice.
Are you smokin crack? Your making absolutely no sense whatsoever. I can feel my IQ dropping responding to you. Since I choose not to stoop to your level, I say good day sir!!(

If the South had won the war none of this would be an issue now...would it?
Actually, that is possible!

In the "did you know "category...

On Aug. 14 1862, Abraham Lincoln hosted a "Deputation of Free Negroes" at the White House, led by the Rev. Joseph Mitchell, commissioner of emigration for the Interior Department. It was the first time African Americans had been invited to the White House on a policy matter. The five men were there to discuss a scheme that even a contemporary described as a "simply absurd" piece of "charlatanism": resettling emancipated slaves on a 10,000-acre parcel of land in present-day Panama.

Lincoln immediately began filibustering his guests with arguments so audacious that they retain the ability to shock a reader 150 years later. "You and we are different races," he began, and "have between us a broader difference than exists between almost any other two races."

The African-American race suffered greatly, he continued, "by living among us, while ours suffers from your presence."

Lincoln went on to suggest, "But for your race among us, there could not be war," and "without the institution of Slavery and the colored race as a basis, the war could not have an existence." The only solution, he concluded, was "for us both ... to be separated."

Remember, he had just robbed a convenient store, that much we do know....good riddance.

when one race sees another race as being the reason for all their trouble's then they are already doomed to be what they are a sad race of people. all the racism is just a sad excuse to be nothing.

All Cops are Trained to aim for the center of the body, Not the legs or arms.....and they are trained to keep on shooting until the body of the perpetrator hits the ground.... You may not like it, but, that is the way it is...
