As reported in the Messenger Inquirer, the purpose of this rally is not to vent anger, but to find a positive out of the difficult feelings and emotions created by the Travon Martin Verdict.

I think this rally is a bad idea. Justice was served. What more do we need?

This is a very similar case. Where the shooter was a black neighborhood watch. And the victim was a white 16 year old. But nobody made a big deal about this in the media....

Justice Rally? Had Martin survived, he would have been arrested for assault or attempted murder, for attacking Zimmerman from behind with deadly force.

And what about justice for Zimmerman whose life has been ruined? He has been vilified as a trigger happy racist, when in reality, he has done more work to support his local black community, than the NAACP.

I think there should be a peaceful rally the next street over for 17 year old Marley Lion who was shot in cold blood by a black man in Charleston, South Carolina on 6/6/12. His story didn't make national headlines. I wanna know why.

Poor Zimmerman? If he hadn't been so hell bent on living out his Charles Bronson Death Wish fantasy he never would have been in the mess he got himself into.

This whole case is ridiculous. If you want to blame anybody for Zimmerman getting off then blame the media. Regardless of race, if this hadnt received so much attention then the outcome could have been very different. In my opinion, Zimmerman should have been found guilty of at least manslaughter. I don't think he had any malice intent, he's just an idiot. He should've never had a gun on him and he should have never approached trayvon. But, because of all of the media attention, he got a good defense attorney and the prosecution choked. All the jury needed was reasonable doubt to acquit him and that's what happened. Same thing happened with OJ but you didn't see all the white people going out and holding rallies for Nicole brown. If people really want racism to stop then the minorities need to stop perpetuating the cycle. Stop playing the race card every chance you get and just accept it. Life isn't fair and things won't get better until we ALL make an effort.

Research and get the facts about race baiting and the actual facts. Google is your friend! Find out who is actually the racist and why it is big money for some.

My opinion , which means nothing to anyone but me, is. None of us were in that court room none of us know the evidence the true police reports what the medical examiners and all what all the experts had to say. So why are people saying its just because he was black or it was profiling. We weren't there that state has different laws so unless you know the whole story you and every "celebrity politician or who ever thinks they know it all" need to respect the jury's decision there are many more important and positive things people can do in this community than base the country's views on something that happened in Florida. Lets all get together for food drives raise money for low income family's school costs because school will be starting soon. Donate to a food bank whatever you choose but there are many better things we can all do than judge a man when we don't know all the details and yes this does include you mr Obama
