Anyone who thinks the stalking of Trayvon Martin and the trial of his killer, George Zimmerman, was not about race is kidding himself.

We would wish it otherwise. Race is the most important undiscussed issue in America today.

On Monday, Attorney General Eric Holder called the shooting “unnecessary” but did not delve any deeper into the political morass of race, fear, hatred and violence in America.

We talk about race only after a tragedy or crisis — Martin’s shooting and Zimmerman’s acquittal — or after those rare moments when we pat ourselves on the back and tell ourselves we don’t need to talk about race because the election of Barack Obama made the United States a “post-racial” society.

But while Obama’s election was significant, historic and even epic, it did not signal an end to racism in America. It didn’t even come close.

Martin, 17, was black and unarmed when he was shot to death on Feb. 26, 2012, in Sanford, Fla., by Zimmerman, 28, whom the news media took to calling a “white Hispanic.”(His mother was born in Peru.)

The only ones making this a race issue is you dumb ignorant liberals trying to use your divide & conquer techniques to further destroy America. You idiots are so caught up in this case that you forget that 94% of black male deaths in America are caused by BLACK MALES! You clowns care more about a made for tv trial than the obvious REAL issues threatening the black community. Eveyone who bought into this race baiting trial should be slapped in your face for your sheer stupidity. This trial was nothing more than a liberal distraction from the real issues. So pleasestop your obvious race baiting and look at the real issues facing black America.

We are still angry because we are tired of hearing you ignorant liberals race bait ALL DAY!!!! You liberals are some of the most whiny and annoying people ever. Stop playing the race card!!!!!! And pay attention to the murders happening in black communities if you love blacks so much!!!!!! Not this made for tv trial. Liberals don't care about blacks. All they want to do is cause blacks and whites to fight. ITS NOT THE 60'S ANYMORE!!!!!! So please shut up about this case you freaking racists!

The Liberals are actually right that the trial was about race. The killing of Trayvon was not about race, that was self defense. The trial came about ONLY because Obummer's DOJ race baited the welfare crowd into thinking they could get something if they scream loud enough. Mob rule is what Eric Holder and Obummer want.
