As predicted by many, the whole Zimmerman/Martin issue is becoming a race war. It's as if every black person in America goes back to the same topic in history, "slavery". Why is that? They use it as an excuse and I'm beyond fed up with it. If everybody were to blame our ancestors tragedies on the other person, this country would be screwed. Why is it that they can't let this go? Slavery died long ago so drop it already. Do they not realize that black people sold their own blacks into slavery? Where's the war there? It doesn't exist because they need someone else to blame. Get over it. As posted today, 3 black men robbed and abused a white man in Washington and said "this is for Trayvon". What exactly are they trying to prove? That the only solution to their anger is to take it out physically on other people? Yeah that's something to be proud of. On top of all this country's anger towards this topic, our so called president is just fueling the fire. As our president he should remain neutral on such a touchy subject, after all he is supposed to set an example. He chose to take sides. WTF kind of leadership is that?! As going down as one of the worst president's in history, he is digging himself deeper and deeper. Without directly saying it, Obama is saying "yes, express your anger towards the race that did wrong by your ancestors". He is basically leading a race into a war instead of creating peace for this country. I guess I don't expect such a thing from Obama considering how little respect he has for America.I will never be ashamed of my country, only the man who runs it.

There's been ignorance on all sides of racism since it started, ignorance is the fuel for such stupidity. But "Stand your ground" for Zimmerman? Name soumds jewish, lots of jewish lawyers and politicians doing crooked things in the name of "business". Check some of the Occupy Wall Street discussions. What I have never heard in this argument is what happened to Trayvons rights under "Stand your ground"? Seems some guy started following him in a car, got out, went up to him and was threatening enough to have Trayvon feel he should defend himself, then the guy pulls out a gun and shoots him! This is after he was told to stop following Trayvon. That's what I see in the current time,now.
