Well all i know is that being a Lady of Quality i would never be in that area. And what parent would let their children eat skittles and tea after dark? It's simply not good for ones teeth and digestion.And all Trayvon had to say when confronted and asked what he was doing was to reply "i just stole some skittles and tea and i'm on my way home."

Zimmerman's constant phone calls about black males makes him sound like he has mental issues. Who obsesses like that? No wonder it finally led to the perfect storm. This time he went too far. As for whether he felt threatened, I doubt it. He followed Trayvon who was on his cell phone. Why follow someone talking on his phone and minding his own business? Zimmerman had real issues. If he was scared and the neighborhood was that bad, why was he out there alone and why didn't he stay safe in his car like he was ordered to do?

Nope. He is still a cracka. The boy was threatened...Zimmerman followed him looking for trouble. The boy did not know this guy and thought he was being attacked. Please. You sir are a liar.

Let's be clear! Zimmerman is not an AMERICAN! He is a Terrorist! A Terrorist who has self empowerment to take out anyone whom he deems a threat! Based on a negative stero-types he describe on the 911 phone call proves no doubt, he hates Black Men. He satified his anger by ending Trevons life. Now, I wonder was he aware that it would be this easy for him to kill, a young black boy and get away with it?...it's somethin I think about as a mother of a young black boy even though he looks bi-racial far from a "threat". Still, non the less I feel like black men will always be 3rd class citizens even to non-white citizens due to negative stero-types embeded deep in the minds of so many.

A post to God Almightly... LET zimmerman be arrested PLEASE I beg YOU! I feel like the family is being victimized by knowing Zimmerman is a monster and will be free to kill more young black men with "baggy pants and hoodies".... even though he is carrying a weapon and his big fat ass is bigger than a kid he is going to be sooo fucking threaten to the point of falling out of his car and crawling on top of a would-be-criminal. nuff said, schizermman-zimmerman needs to have his head blown clean off his shoulders! SCREAMIN He is a lying SOB

So...we should emotinally change or revise or rescind CCW laws with the stand-your-ground/no-duty-to-r etreat to make people nice and polite and civilized and sweet on the streets? I have a hunch that among the outsider whiners and shriners are some of the dumb from the Bloomturd Herd and the Brady Bunch, with other media whores pimping and promoting themselves and their agendas.

Wrong. Zimmerman...

A) Isn't African-American, and
B) Killed an African-American.

Therefore he MUST be white. It's simple math. The media should have NEVER released a picture of him without bleaching the s--t out of it or at least photoshopping him in a white robe and hood. What were they thinking? It's THEIR job to create the division that is needed to effectively run this country into the ground, and there they go slipping-up again...
