Zimmerman, upon advise from counsel, waived the SYG law as part of their defense.

You and Obama must get your news exclusively from NBC. But, then again, NBC is Obama's mouthpiece.

I agree. Beating teaches the child that violence is the answer and solution the problem. I was never hit and I never hit my children.
Again, only liberals equate discipline with beatings.

Screaming and cursing is a much better way to teach children acceptable behaviors in society.

Of course, it teaches screaming and cursing is another acceptable behavior.

Take you, for example.

No, I'm saying you should conduct yourself in your actions and appearance that demand respect.
There are plenty of white men who are looked at with suspicion by other whites because they emit a sense of being suspicious.
Ignorance doesn't have a race or color. Self-pride doesn't either. Each one of us has control over one of them. There's nothing any of us can do about the other.
Fortunately, ignorance only exists in a small minority.
Why focus on what can't be changed and, instead, on what can?
Most Americans want unity. It's people like Al Sharpton who don't. Ever thought about that?
How odd....

You denigrate blacks as a group, but demand whites be looked at individually.

Many right-wing commentators insist again and again that there is no more racism in America if we have a black president and black attorney general.

On Friday, Maher said,“He’s just asking conservative to say ‘We admit there is a problem.’ Can we get that?”

Unless people are walking in Klan robes and burning crosses in the middle of the street, he said, conservatives are loath to admit that there is any evidence of racism anywhere.

He asked his white, conservative panelists, anti-tax zealot Grover Norquist and former Republican U.S. Rep. Connie Mack (R-FL),“Have you ever been followed in a department store?”

Moving a bit to your IRS fetish :-)

CBS News/ July 18, 2013, 2:01 PM

Liberal groups may have been targeted by IRS as well
New documents provided to the Treasury Department's inspector general indicate

that progressive groups,

in addition to conservative groups, may have been targeted by the IRS for additional scrutiny, according to testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee by J. Russell George, the inspector general. The revelation bolsters the case of congressional Democrats who have argued that IRS targeting was not politically motivated, and that the groups targeted were more ideologically diverse than originally believed.

In his prepared testimony, George described documents from July 2010 that included the term "progressive" within a discussion of the types of groups that should be scrutinized by the IRS. Those documents were provided to George's office on July 9, but were not provided prior to the inspector general's original audit that initially jump-started the targeting scandal and the resultant committee hearings.

And actually in many ways, Obama's election paved the way for non whites in the conservative political bastion.

I have never heard them make so many claims about blacks being in their fold, while being worried about the latino vote!

Yesterday's speech was completely unnecessary.
If the demonstrators were listening, Obama was trying to tell them that it was over, that no federal charges would be approved.
But he lacks the leadership to say so directly.
So, cities across the country will be disrupted for nothing.
So... what you're saying is... you want Obama to use the power of his presidency to impose his will on the Justice department....

.... while at the same time, looking for the smoking gun that he used the power of the presidency to impose his will on the IRS so you can burn him at the stake for improper use of his power?????
