What about the whole Trayvon situation?

  • The fat guy is guilty and should be jailed
  • It was self-defense; Trayvon was up to no good

Travon had a history of violent behavior? Can you post some examples? Obama is the reason for this trial? You do know Zimmerman attacked a cop right? You do know his girlfriend had a restraining order on him? Oh well don't bother with facts, just blame Obama. Huge LOL!
The examples have been posted ad nauseum. you didn't believe them then, you won't believe them now.

CNN is clearly trying to convict the fat guy. They ignore Trayvon's criminal past.

White people don't have a history of being oppressed, harassed and profiled in this country. Yeah, that's probably got a lot to do with it.
Oh please, boo hoo. Obama's wife is taking $100 million luxury vacations at taxpayer expense and we are supposed to feel sorry for her?

You wouldn't even have a decent point in regards to this trial if Zimmerman were white, but the fact he himself is a minority makes this racism narrative completely pointless.

You can't just blame everything that happens to black people on racism. We have a black president now, a black DOJ chief, black senators, supreme court judges, business and community leaders, principles, teachers, sheriffs, officers, coaches, doctors, lawyers, etc .....

Your excuses for the ongoing plight of some black people to find success are wearing thin.

As for profiling, when Trayvon put the gold grill in his face he profiled himself. I don't know of many presidents, doctors, lawyers, principles, judges or upstanding people who purposely characterize themselves as a posterboy for rappers and thugs who talk of killing cops and crackas. I do know from lineups and news programs of a lot of criminals who look like that though.

You want to grow your hair out, wear Led Zep concert tees, torn jeans and smell like pot, get used to being profiled. You want to wear pink polos and striped shorts and penny loafers, prepare to be profiled.

You want to emulate a rapper, you're going to get profiled.

<quoted text>Neither Zimmerman, or Martin are "white" so what is your point?
Why does it always have to be about race?
So, from what I see,.....if Matin would have been a white person, you'd have no problem with Zimmerman shooting him, based only on the color of his skin.
Funny, that I never see any posts on here about all of the black people shooting other black people right here in our own city. I guess thats different because in your mind that is o-k. We here about those almost every morning on the news, yet you dont complain about it. It's different if a Hispanic person is involved, and then it's a "race" issue, and you somehow blame white people for it!
Racist much?
You don't think a Hispanic can be accused of profiling and hold hatred towards black people? Zimmerman made calls to the police on Aug 3rd, 4th and 6th and October 6th 2011 and in February 2012 to report suspicious persons. In every case he identified the subject as black males.

He was defending himself against an aggressive, racist punk who went looking for trouble and found it.

Tell me, why did Zimmerman get out of his
vehicle, call police and then approach Trayvon? What was Trayvon doing that would cause Zimmerman to label him as just another punk "who always get away"?

How's that, by going to the store and buying Skittles? How dare a black kid go to a store to buy Skittles and then try and walk home afterward!

With a comment like yours how could there be any doubt that you're a hopeless racist?
