Well this just proves all the people who were so vocal about Zimmerman and thugvon are racist.

We already knew that though.

Well thats the same thing, only completely different.
It's only racism if a black person dies.
Just look at this for instance:

http://www.woodtv.com/dpp/news/local/kent_cou...

Black gansta shoot 5 white girls at a graduation party.(not racism because no blacks were shot)

And not one of those white girls that were shot could have been Obama's kids.
So, that makes it different, and not racist.

I don't get it. Why don't we just go ahead and have the race war already. I see it as a win-win situation. Imagine all of those individuals who will no longer need welfare and we can be assured of Democratic Party losses for the foreseeable future.

In the first place, your generalization that the majority of blacks are on welfare is faulty. In the second place, while I will grant that a majority of the African American population voted for Obama, just as many whites voted for Obama and the democrats and continue to do so. Your bigotry is once again based on ignorance.

The bigotry is based on the fact that the party of Lincoln has been polluted with Nixon's southern strategy for the last forty years.

Something that you patriots have refused to believe even when it shows itself right in front of you.

I see no parallel or similarity between the actions of this teen and Martin prior to them being shot and killed. Martin was walking home, this kid was breaking into cars.

What's your point??

Still playing the ostrich game I see Bob. It does suit you since your rear is the more attractive part of you to display. It fits right in with your name.

You should probably look at the % of blacks who voted for Obama vs. the % of whites. If you don't understand the difference that is probably why you voted for Obama, your just not that bright.

first of all in light of the terrorist activity in this country we have been asked to inquire and report to authorities things that don't seem normal. Last time I checked when you have a close neighborhood where you know everyone, you have a history of crime in the neighborhood, and see someone you don't know just walking around in the rain you have a right to be suspicious. Only an ignorant person would argue otherwise.

Second, Martin attacked Zimmerman. The fact that he was high, had a history of violence and bragged about the fights he was in, simply reaffirms that this is what took place, and the facts show Zimmerman did not lie about anything that could be proven, leading someone with a functioning brain to believe he was telling the truth.

Third, Martin was not only high he had two of the ingredients of a highly intoxicating drug that kids are using.

Your inability to not see the parallel between the cases only confirms either your too stupid to engage your brain, or too ignorant to see it. My guess is a log of both.

Yet another person completely ignorant of the SYG laws.
There is not one shred of evidence TM set out to do anything other than walk to the store and home...nothing, notta, zip, zero.
Had GZ done his duty and called in but NOT follow TM none of this would have happened. GZ was under no obligation to follow. He was to report and let the Authorities handle it from there.
Once GZ crossed the line and became a possible threat to TM the SYG law became the right of TM to exercise.
Read the law...I've already posted the content copied directly from the Florida website.

Most of the coloreds live in major metropolitan areas and most are on welfare. Obama, Sharpton and Holder wouldn't be poking for a conflict if they thought they didn't have enough numbers. God put the ape man here to work, not to vote or have any kind of life outside of servitude. It will be the colored and the Mexican dullard that will be used as a vehicle to install a fascist regime which will go right after good ole' whitey. Aryans and Asians must stand up to this work in progress. It's high time to return the mud people too their proper place.

In the first place, I did NOT vote for Obama either time. In the second place, put up the numbers of how each race voted, assuming you can find them. I know that the majority of African Americans voted for Obama, however, my point was that African Americans alone did NOT elect him. And the next time you wish to say someone is not bright, perhaps you should read some of their other posts and get a feel for how they post before insulting them?? You are real quick to fly off the handle and insult, Chip. You need to read a little more and calm down just a tad.

You are an ignorant fool who has ZERO clue about how to respect yourself let alone others. Your bigotry is based on fear of someone different than yourself.

How many times do I have to explain this to you.

ALL EVIDENCE SAYS MARTIN ATTACKED ZIMMERMAN.

Yes and I also have two white friends who voted for Obama simply because he is black.

"96 percent of black voters supported Obama"

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1108/152...

The simple point is that if Obama was a white guy, I doubt he would be in the WH. He didn't have the experience to begin with and still doesn't

So why is it that when a black man is shot by a Hispanic, it is national news and gets remarks from the president. However if colors are reversed it gets no mention? You think maybe Obama is a racist yet?

How about this, if 96% of white people voted for a white person running for office against a black candidate, would there be news reports of racist voters?

History is based on history. Those Africans were violent apes long before they were taken (by their own people) and brought here to America where they were supposed to fulfill God's plan for them. You can believe anything you want about me or them, but I tell you that if your white you will be fighting them sooner or later. We need another John Wilkes Booth too!

So don't assume that I was one of the white people who voted for Obama. Didn't trust him in 2008 and sure as heck trust him a whole lot less now. Is he a racist? Could be. I think he is much more interested in dividing the country than being a racist. He wins and so do the Dems if they can keep us divided.
