If Trayvon attacked this guy....he got what he deserved. Evidence seems to show he did initiate a physical attack. However, if he was shot without reason, which is unlikely, the shooter should be charged with a 2nd degree murder because there was no premeditation that can be proven. I'm sick of blacks protesting everytime some of their own race gets shot. Unarmed does not mean not dangerous. If you blacks want to protest....protest your lifestyles, most of.your music, and current culture that glorifies money, drugs, violence, welfare, and devalued women. Protest the destruction of your own race by your own people. Encourage positive black role models...who aren't hateful racists like Al Sharpton....he's so racist he probably won't eat crackers with his soup. Why do so many young black men strive for prison and ill gotten gain. It's only destroying you and it leads to your whole race being profiled everytime you are seen in baggy clothes with that s h I t t y arrogant attitude trying to make people fear you. Then you get mad when people fear you and fight back. Well you brought it on yourself. Act like humans you will get treated like one. Act like fools and you will be treated like one. Where are respectable black role models. Corey Booker is a good one, Newark NJ. Edgar Mevars and MLK from the past. I'm sure there are plenty out there. The media doesn't want to show you so you have to put yourself out there before its too late.

Man you are stupid....Corey Booker, is the mayor of Newark, NJ. He is alive. You're calling me racist. Half my family is black. I'm just saying if you want people to perceive you a certain way....then you get mad when people perceive you that way. You call it profiling. You say its your culture. You dress in clothing associated with gangs, gangsters, and drug dealers. Rap music glorifies violence, guns, drugs, and all sorts of antisocial behaviors. Even members of your own race derided your behavior. I'm a member of the NAACP.....and white.....but I see how blacks are treated, but it is also well known how some small behavioral changes could help the situation. You call it culture....I call it an excuse to act foolish....at times. Look at Tyler Perry...he contributes to culture without any negative aspects. He has even enriched white society.

and while the blacks are being profiled as thugs, whites are being profiled as racist. Just like this case with young Martin, the shooter should be in jail but at the same time i dont think it was cuz the boy was black. Then u got the media constantly saying the shooter is "half white",, why is that even a issue?? They know how to make things look a certain way even when its not!
A week b4 the shooting their was a white couple brutaly killed and raped by 3 black gang members, did we hear about NCAAP protesting about that? No, whats they difference?

I am so tired of hearing about this everyday on the news. They keep showing pics of him when he was around 12, when the fact of the matter is that he was a 6'3'' 17 year old who somehow was in a gated community with a backpack containing women's jewelry and tools used to burglarize homes. He had already been suspended from school numerous times, so he was not exactly the innocent young man they are portraying him to be.

This will be Rodney king all over again, if we put as much emphasis on this case as much as what we should really be focusing on we would be in a better place! Sry for a family loss I really am but from what I see on the news aka what everyone else is seeing Zimmerman I hope you are innocent you could have lost your life over child play. Same with a cop at a traffic stop you have to take all precuations. You were attack and reacted in self defense.

Would anyone care if the kid was white???. White folks should stay out of this.... Let this be a Latin american,African American battle.. White folks didn't do anything quit blaming us for something that happened over 100 yrs ago, we have a black president. And no American modern day had anything to do with what happened back in the day please its a excuse used still to this day and it's pathetic, does nothing but make the people look bad.
tired of this crap

If the shooter was black and the victim was white then it wouldn't even be in the news. Blacks are a bunch of cry babys. And yes i have a mixed grand child i'm raising and ive been shot at on my job by blacks more than once. I have no use for blacks anymore.

If Zimmerman would have listened to what the dispatcher told him, do not follow and pursue, then none of this would be happening...Zimmerman took it upon himself to disregard what he was told..instead he followed this kid....really...anyone that was being followed by an unknown stranger is going to defend theirselves when stalked and attacked...zimmerman was on a power trip, decided he was above the law, didn't have to listen to dispatch and murdered a child...its sad when teens cant even walk to a store without being profiled as suspcious...i dont care if he wasnt a normal resident there, what ppl there don't have family and friends that visit....the boy was profiled no matter how u look at it...

You black males stand around, pants sagging, hats on crooked, and try to intimidate people. You hurl racial insults at whites and think were scared. When we fight back....we are the racist ones. In traffic yesterday, two black guys told me to get my "cracker a$$" out of the way. Yelled it so loud I could hear it with the Windows up. I flipped them off. They followed me and started speaking some weird language with some threats in it. I pulled out a bat....because when a dog misbehaves you beat it. They drove off. Screw this sh*t. I'm tired of blacks acting like thugs and then call it profiling when they get treated like thugs. F**k these disgraced to humanity. Put em in their place.....at the bottom......their already there.....nevermind.

Ok continued:
Another issue we yet still have to this day, The Confederate Flag... known as the Rebel Flag. ok this one hits home with me for a minute here's my story!
My cousin Micheal Westerman, some of you are more than likely familiar with this case others may not be. Ok, the confederate flag is in our history correct? Also the confederate flag is used as Todd County Rebels in high school. I also attended there as my cousin did! Now we support our rebels there, let me remind you as team players they are both black and white on the sports teams ok. As in our history Blacks also fought along side of the whites in the war.Just saying. Now, the rebel flag is a label in this school k, well years ago Michael yes was a good ole country boy and very much into our teams there. so he flew our flag in the back of his truck. Not in a Racial kind of way by any means what so ever, one particular day his wife and his twins are in the truck mean while he starts to get taunted by some black guys that decided they wanted to make the flag a racial issue! demanded him to take it out of his own truck. For one who were they to tell someone what to do! But Micheal refused to do so, and really why should he. Well, the result ended up in a shooting and like I said his babies were in there in that truck too. Needless to say Micheal was killed over a dam flag.All because some black men used that as a way to become racial and start a war over! Well they suceeded by doing what they did, and caused a major riot for years over this... Let me also add the confederate flag still remains at our todd county rebel high school its a mascot! So, while blacks constantly find something to use as weapons to be able to act out against the white race, and try to say all whites are racists! Give it a break already geez... just sayin!!! grow up people theres no reason for ten black men to taunt one white man as the other way around! Why try to make people fear you because your black or white it doesn't give you power over anyone no matter who or what your are so guess what I will remain praying for both! And stop living in the past history of the people and be greatful we are in america and there is no more stupidness like slavery or anything like that anymore. So stop trying to stand out and use excuses for your childish actions against another race Just because our ancestors done so we are not them Thank God! Anyways there's my view, like it or not it's the way I see it.

I definitely pulled out a bat. Didn't get beat just more mouthy ebonics and I stood there while they sat......scared......running mouths......if there had been 5 instead of 2 they would have "fought" me. Fair fight huh........I'm sorry you lived in the "hood" for 2 years, but what does that make you.....a Negro paeleontologist. Did you study the behavior of all that resides in the "hood". They might have whipped you, as you put it, but they drove away from me. They knew I was either gonna get killed or beat a$$. So you can be scared all you want. This b.s. gangster image is just that.....image. I'm not scared of anyone who doesn't have sense enough to wear a f u c k I n g belt. Wallet hitting them in the ankles......if they had a wallet. Keep fooling yourselves as a race.....we can't be nothing but dope dealers, rappers, or ball players. You'll breed yourself out soon enough or, through prison, you'll be extinct. Better yet, wake the f u c k up and join society.

Ultimately, it doesn't come down to race in this instance. This particular case isn't about racism, so much as it is about what level of aggression is necessary for us to perform an act of violence to protect ourselves.
And as far as this country, even in the "kkk infested, hick-loving, sister-banging" south, is concerned, we're the most politically correct and racially accepting countries IN THE WORLD. What is racism anyways? It's a system of stereotypes - and guess what? Stereotypes don't exist just for the "racial injustice white america pushes on poor, oppressed colored folk every day," No, they exist for a reason. Because there is truth in them - maybe not universal truth, but take it like this;
I see a snake that looks like a copperhead. Am I going to go "D'aww, I'm just being a species-ist. It's probably a fun-loving, non-venomous hugsnake." and pick the buggering thing up and kiss it?
Hell no, I'm going to avoid it if possible, and kill it if not.
