" we are not your fall guy or an excuse for your personal failures in life"

I've had a successful life and of course there have been failures ; but not once did I go out and blame the "system " each time something went wrong- I accepted responsibility , learned from them and moved on. I came from a lower class farm family - both my parents were dirt poor growing up- but my success is due to the fact that I had STRICT parents who always emphasized education, made sure I did my homework, and punished me when I did wrong . We learned in Church what was ibasic right and wrong . We could have easily taken a government handout , but my family refused- opting instead to garden and hunt for our own food instead of expecting the government to hand us everything because "we were owed" . There isn't a day I wake up and blame another race or person for my personal responsibility , but I sure as hell will cal the shots when I see them . And what I see is a lazy , entitled culture who only invests in playing the perpetual victim all the time , talks about "the Dream " but doesn't realize that one has to be asleep and inactive to dream. Hispanics and Asians have immigrated to this country by the millions in my lifetime , and in one generation they've already found "the dream" because they worked hard for it . Ill never forgot the Rodney King riots . I was in LA at the time. Blacks tried to push their way into East LA, but the Hispanics banded together and shot their asses down. When that plan didn't work , Blacks went for Koreatown . They were successful in burning down entire blocks of what hard working Asians had worked to achieve for decades. The Koreans lost everything- never complained to the white media- never sued the city of LA. They just picked up the rubble and moved forward. Today Koreatown is rebuilt , three times as big , and one of the most prosperous areas of LA. Your people are pathetic and you know it. Rise above the majority and do something with your life. Get away from large black areas - integrate with people who think differently . Re-program your brain and stop worshipping socialists like MLK- and stop blaming the "white Hispanic" for shooting Trayvon. Learn to keep your hands off of people and you won't get hurt. All of this energy "protesting " the verdict is wasted- you didn't hear what the jury heard. DO Something WIth Your Life!!!!!

Do you know me idiot? my parents worked their ass off for me and my siblings to live in our own home in the suburbs in the early mid sixties my father worked two jobs all of his life I can recall when my mother screaming when my father was working his night job and we had just moved in our home getting a burn cross in our front lawn and our home getting sprayed with kkk logo I knew were my father kept his gun I fired off a shot in the air and the klan ran off and at the very next minute my white neighbors show us some support by welcoming us to the community so unlike you racist I can't sterotype all whites by their race because most of my experience have been positive my folks did teach me to not be a liar but to be honest and too be proud of myself and my race and how too earn a living and how budget my money and not to be a self made slave by being a criminal and your MLK socialist hit proves that you're a ignorant racist and still say FU loser.

One more thing my folks also taught me if I was right that they support us 100 precent and I support Trayvon 100 percent because he was innocent child not in the act of committing a crime and we don't sacrifice our children especially for wannabe grown up lying loser and you're not smart enough to lecture me not stfu.

That's right Jeff. His momma worked as a hoe and his daddy sold krack kokane. People put a cross in their yard because they were a possessed, satanic, voodoo family from Africa. They should go back there where they belong.

Trayvon was not an innocent child , but you wouldn't know that from the lying Leftist media who's afraid of criticizing the Race Pimps because they'd lose money. You see during this conversation I haven't pretended to know the inside details of the Zimmerman trial- how the fuck do you know. "I know Trayvon was an innocent child" really??? The defense team said specially that the Liberal Leftist judge would allow any of Trayvon's Facebook info, tweets , school or criminal records. The bulkshit media was handed this picture of a 12 year old boy and told that an evil rascist "White man" stalked him and killed him -that's bullshit . They even got his race wrong - called him White - then White Hispanic . If you're so angry about Trayvon then go out and protest the fucking Hispanic community instead of telling me about your kkk experiences . You see your texts still reveal your truth- you ARE angry at ALL whites and will use any excuse to vent that anger -even if it means changing someone's race . By the way , Trayvon wasn't an innocent child - he was a 6'1 190 plus pound muscle head who had a propensity for fighting and violence. According to O Mare , the judge would not even let them mention his addiction to MMA fighting and "drawing blood" or his drug use. The lesson here is simple - the minute youn put your hands on another person , you've committed assault. Breaking bone and drawing blood - assault and battery . Zimmerman had the right to defend himself instead of becoming another statistic to Blsck male crime. During your victim rallies this weekend , be sure and encourage all your friends to study and read the Laws regarding Self defense, assault and battery -that way no one gets shot .

Hey fool where did you learn mind reading from idiot I don't have to hate not even trash like you as a matter of fact I find you rather amusing sorta on the slap-stick circuit I did see that circus rigged up racist kangaroo court and I already knew what the outcome would be and I wasn't surprise since the survivor is the only lying witness who really knew the truth but you're right about one thing and that is about that wacky judge beetch who ordered the state not to inject race and not to use Zimmerman police arrest records or to bring up his marital anger issues or the other 40 calls of him profling Blacks cooter and if the keystone cops in Sanford would have had enough balls to do their job and not be worried about judge Zimmerman they would have gave that puzzy a drug test and searched Zimmerman house and they would have found out who the community burglar was it was old dumb Georgie boy himself and as the Hispanic community goes georgie boy pappy is a Jew name Zimmerman so that's make him a jew and it's not a crime to be a Black person and actually it's a honor and Zimmerman is no cop he didn't have no badge or a uniform and I wish that mf'er would have came up behind me or any other black adult because I'll packing too legally and like I told you before we don't sacrifice our kids for no mf'er am I clear do you get it yet so keep your punk as in lala land since it makes you feel important.

I could give a shit less about the Zimmerman trial and neither could Blacks. This is all about the usual "Guilt the White Race" shit they do all the time. Why don't Black care enough to march against Black on Black violence ? How about joining forces to open their own banks, stores, and private schools? How about focusing on education and creating your own companies? How about parenting your God damn children instead of abandoning them to run wild in the streets? Of course I'm a White guy who asks the real questions . All they want to do is exercise their violence and anger in the street - and they have plenty of time since about 71% live off the government . The American dream is not a handout , but they will keep trying until it bankrupts. I don't feel sorry for your lazy fat asses. I work seven days a week so that these street urchins can lay around all day watch tv and wait for their next welfare check. I've traveled around the world and I've never met any Blscks who had a good opinion of Blsck Anericans. Save your energy this weekend and go get a fucking job or read a book.

Jack boot : ill drink one for both of us . I suddenly realized that Redeemer is speaking Ebonics - I can't make out a word he's saying (remember my texts about education ?) I've lived in Atlanta now for 21 years , and believe me I know about racial tension . I actually lived in the city for 10 years until I just couldn't take the crime anymore. My house was broken into 3 times, car stolen twice, had a good friend killed by a 14 year old black as a gang initiation . I survived five years of the Freaknik Fest where I saw black males rib and loot the city, attack whites and rape black girls in public . Believe me I've seen it all living in Atlanta. I moved outside the city 10 years ago -into a gated community where one of my neighbors happens to be a policeman .no crime inside our gate but over 600 crimes committed by Blacks this year alone in Dekalb County. I live right on the border of the Hispanic and Asian communities which are huge. They all work hard , have intact families , and have great food and restaurant areas. They do not tolerate any Black crime , so if you want to be safer in the big cities , move near the Hispanic /Asian area.. The so called "Trayvon protest" in Atlanta this weekend will turn violent as usual - glad I live outside the city - plus I always carry my registered weapon on me.
