Any sympathy for Trayvon's folks was lost when they said they would live with the verdict.....then grabbed as much media cash as possible and went on the Al Sharpton, "Child Can't Buy Snacks" Tour....Especially after learning Tracy Martin was a Cripp and that Trayvon lived with his mother all of.......Ready.....3 whole years of his 17 years....It's a wonder she can moisten those eyes, at all.....

What's odd is that Trayvon's mother kicked him out, and his dad did'nt want him either, but yet they want all of that money!
Go figure!
Obama will take care of them!
Trayvon was his son!

Maybe Obama's wife could take them on one of her extravagant luxury vacations at taxpayer expense. Or maybe they could move in next to Obama's illegal alien grandmother at the White House.

An even better indication of social justice gone amuck is how the family that Zimmerman rescued from their overturned SUV is now too afraid to even make a public appearance because of the public's reaction, violent threats and fears of retribution.

A good samaritan act by an acquitted citizen can't be discussed publicly out of fear??

I'm sure Jules and Pipedream would approve, but are you OK with this kind of bully justice system out for revenge?

It really only supports the claim of ..Social Engineering, whereby any disparaging news or comments that are not positive to black America shall be avoided(notice virtually no media on black teens killing baby in Georgia).....all the while they are allowed violent protesting, without arrest and DOJ look's the other way, while Black Panthers put out death threats on a, now Not Guilty American.....Is this what the promise of civil rights really was?

Absolutely not. This is a far cry from the black people marching behind Martin Luther King in suits and dresses, peacefully protesting for the right to be free to pursue their dreams as Americans. Those people weren't looking for revenge. Their idea of fundamental transformation was to be allowed the same exact rights and opportunities as everyone else, not to have the laws bent to favor them.

Not too sure of that, when not one, honest black American has come out about the inequality of this trial's coverage.....That signal's their comfort level with the media and government's heinous actions....Charles Barkley has been the only black celebrity to honestly say, he watched the trial, and the verdict was correct....

That's what I'm saying. Today's black socially active protestors are fighting for something entirely different than their predecessors. MLK and his contemporaries were for judging a man by the content of his heart and not the color of his skin. Today's black holding a sign "no justice. No peace" is all about judging everyone specifically by the color if their skin and they couldn't care less about content if heart.

I, personally find many of them, as much a racist as some of the worst whites....and worse yet, is that the government and media support it.......It would be great if our government would slow the pendalum, or even stop it and go back to everyone equal, with zero preferential treatment....what we have done is create a portion of the black society into needy, clueless, criminally-oriented children......Supported by American taxpayers, from womb to tomb.....

Well, you've been an Obama advocate throughout his presidency. Don't you think his spread the wealth philosophy has played a part in that "womb to tomb", preferential treatment philosophy? That's an honest question, not trying to tweak your nose.

How do you feel about Obama's comments in regards to the Trayvon Martin shooting, and his insistence to push this into a "teachable moment" that seems to only favor the narrative of black man victim white man racist?

Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America .. Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation.. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to.... This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:

First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.. Jeremiah Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the '60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks -- with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas -- to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks. We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude??

Barack talks about new 'ladders of opportunity' for blacks. Let him go to Altoona ? And Johnstown, and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for 'deserving' white kids...? Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America ? Is it really white America's fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?


Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?



As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?

Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?

We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena . And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.

Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago. This needs to be passed around because, this is a message everyone needs to hear!!!

Excellent starting point for an honest two--way discussion. Thanks for posting this.

No, I know you don't indentify like that, which is why I asked. You know by now I'm no fan of Obama on any level, but as a white guy I feel his response to this whole circus was about as alienating as anything he's ever said. As president you should be expected to represent all Americans but on this event he's clearly chosen to represent only black people and whoever happens to agree with the black people victim/white people bad philosophy. Just one more area where I have a reason not to support this president.

My god are you ever full of hot air! So let me get this straight, being loaded onto ships and sold as slaves and the subsequent indoctrination into Christianity was the best thing to happen to the black folk? Wow! I don't think I've seen a better example of the European, white Christian superiority complex on display in quite some time!

As far as welfare, food stamps, section 8 ect... goes, you're confusing racial issues with economic issues, why do your types always do that? Not all blacks are on assistance and plenty of white folk use those same assistance programs. THEY ARE NOT BLACK PROGRAMS!

You should get out your iron and get the wrinkles out of your white bed sheet, sounds like you may need it soon.
