I agree. Same thing. It is a very sad day for everyone in the US when so many are celebrating Trayvon Martin's death and calling his killer a hero.
These same people who continue to keep these boards alive with hate filled, racist comments would happily put a bullet through the heart of Jesus Christ if they thought He looked out of place in their neighborhood'.

Yet Oprah has not one word to say about the 242 people murdered in her own city so far this year, most so whom were Black.

If she is really so concerned, why isn't she campaigning against the violence in Chicago?

"Stunning?"

Maybe a bit exaggerated, but both were brutal killings of young black males who'd offended whites or those considered white, so who but Beck and the radical Right would consider it "stunning?"

Beck would've been cheering Till's death had his show been on in 1955, obviously. So would most of today's Right.

Trust a wingnut from the great (!) state of Tennessee to attack Oprah for being a "racist." If only you knew how ironic and hypocritical that was.

Another Rightie evading the issue by pretending to care about dead black people in Chicago.

Why can't your side stay ontopic on these discussions? What do killings in Chicago have to do with Martin's death? Who said she's not spoken out against crime in black neighborhoods?

Stop parading your bigoted ignorance.

There is no comparison between emmit and Trayvon.Emmit was dragged to a barn and tortured,no man deserved that. Trayvon was a punk,started a fight and lost. No comparison.Oprah needs to clean up her own back yard before she wades into Fla's back yard.Leave it to the cow to open her pot hole.The outrage needs to be about black on black crime all over America.Start going after the drug dealers and gang bangers.I bet the sow from Chi couldn't even name one name of a black that has been murdered in Chi this year.Ridiculous!!!!!!!!

Your lack of comprehension is nothing short of amazing if you think the murder of two black youths has no correlation to the massive numbers of black youths in Oprah's home town.

It is a mind set, and Rahm made that explicitly clear when he said "You never let a serious crisis go to waste."

The Martin incident / crisis is being exploited to the max.

As for her not speaking out about against crime in black neighborhoods, have you heard or read, anything about it? Have you heard Rahm or Obama speak out about it?

With 47 years of adult living in Illinois, it is hard to ignore what goes on there, or doesn't.

and trayvon didnt beat him after he was being followed instead of just ignoring him and calling the police, and also training to fight, that also doesnt count that trayvon couldnt of done what he did.

Yes, Black on Black violence and murder is remarkable. Black on White crime is also pandemic and the media doesn't report on that reality. There are incredible hate crimes by Blacks committed at a frequency shocking to any civilized mind. The viciousness and frequency of Black crimes against Whites is not limited to the streets of America. The vicious natures of Black crimes against humanity is genocidal against their own race and based in terror as a political expression. This terror based politic is why the Left doesn't challenge, or attempt to repair this pathological behavior. Historically, the Leftist inclination has always embraced extreme violence and murder to achieve its goals. They've read humanity incorrectly, as usual. The increasing frequency and viciousness of Black on White crime will impact them also.

Stunning? Hardly. That stupid broad has no ethical principles as demonstrated by her (as well as countless other show hosts) proclivity to entertain every type of deviant on her television program, alternate media she is involved in, and her embrace of depraved behavior, which makes her today's darling in the arena of political correctness. As long as I have a gun, it will increase my odds of defending myself against sub human species such as that arboreal inhabitant.

Anyone who considers the opinion of Orca Windbag to be important should be institutionalized!

How that disgusting Black Cow got to be a "celebrity" says volumes about how many idiots there are in this country today.

God help us!

get it right chisholm...i never said i cared about dead blacks in chicago! i was just stating a fact about this old cow. she likes to get on camera and talk about a thug like he is someone special,yet chicago gave her a start and was her home town for awhile. but since there is no camera involved..she wont talk about the thugs killing innocent people there.also the thugs in chicago got worked up when $ebrena fulton got on tv trying to start a race war. or maybe she was just trying to get more "donations" off her thug...who knows, with that bunch.neither one really gives a rats azz. they both just like camera time. and if that makes me an ignorant bigot in your eyes...OH WELL...in my eyes you are a pathetic moron.BTW...im holding up 5 fingers...guess which one is just for you.

I read the headline and thought the same thing. We are a gullible people. Many progressives and a lot of them women watched her and Donahue for years. They take the credit for the good part of the movements. But the bad part, well that is someone elses fault. It would be poetic justice if our nation fell apart before people like these reached the end of their lives. To see what they caused.

The only "correlation" is your racist strawman that she "doesn't care about Chicago so she should shut up about Trayvon."

Rahm Emmanuel wasn't talking about the Martin case, either, so there's another dishonest "correlation."

The crime was committed in a WHITE neighborhood in Florida, then the perp was exonerated by a jury. That's the issue.

"Windbag" seems to apply to you, not her. "Racist" and "blowhard" also fit you well.

Isn't it amazing how EVERY THREAD concerning the Martin case, even if only peripherally, draws the racist white Righties out of the woodwork? They wouldn't talk this trash publicly, of course, so they hide behind aliases on political boards and display their racism, hatred, and blind ignorance and bigotry against others.

This sort of thing reminds me how stupid it is when others claim that "America no longer has a race problem." In fact, it's bad and getting WORSE.

You're all a disgrace to humanity.
