Well, what did you want? Carnage and destruction in the streets? Are you disappointed because Atlanta DID NOT protest and raise hell? Forty unemployed black people trying to raise a little ruckus does NOT constitute anything other than a little entertainment.
They stayed at home, nothing to report folks, and now you are pissed.
Personally, I hate drama, and I'm PROUD of the black people in Atlanta for staying at home.

I'm certainly not pissed and more than happy to have been proven wrong.

I do wonder how many black "youths" are aware that if they say things like "Dis be fo Trayvon" when assaulting white people, it becomes a hate crime. But since it's obvious most didn't even watch the trial, I doubt they'd care. And I doubt law enforcement would care. Just look how fast they covered up the obvious hate crime in Mableton that left a white man dead in the street. But NOOOOOO, it wasn't "racially motivated" at all. Just 4 boys having fun. Disgusting.

I don't know if any of you caught the after trial interview with Piers Morgan of Americas 3.0 student/ witness Gentiel. The articulate young lady that was on the phone with Trayvon the night of the "incident", and was a prosecution witness in the trial. When he told her a "creepy ass cracker" was following him, she suggested to him the guy (GZ) may be a gay rapist and that Trayvon should just run home. Trayvons little brother was at the townhouse as well so Trayvon did not want this guy to know where they lived, so he decided to deliver some "whoop ass", which is different from a beat down. A beat down would mean Trayvon was going to kill GZ, but he only intended to deliver some "whoop ass", which he did. Apparently he forgot to explain his intent to GZ, who thought he was going to be seriously injured or killed during the "whoop ass" session, and defended himself with deadly force. The jury heard the facts, and found GZ not guilty. Now can we turn ourselves to what the real problem is with black America, which is other blacks. Every shred of statistical data supports the reality that blacks are the biggest problem for other blacks.

For about forty years now black democrats have ran everything in the City of Detroit including running most businesses and decent citizens out of town. Now they are bankrupt. Just filed Chapter 9, and there are a bunch of pissed off people. The gravy train just left the tracks and the corruption spigots are being turned off, and a whole lot of people are not happy. The schools suck. Police response times suck if they show up at all. Neighborhoods and parks suck. Huge parcels of vacant land now available because of the bulldozed neighborhoods. To many of whats left of the people there are broken and dysfunctional. It is sad what so much of it looks like in certain areas. Now if you go to the sections where the mexicans, asians and the arabs have taken over, its clean, maintained, and business activity is happening everywhere. Whats up with that?

(COBB COUNTY) Iraq veteran suffered fatal mob beating...press ignores it! On March 25, as the national press was running around-the-clock coverage of the Trayvon Martin shooting, 34-year-old Zachary “Zach” Gamble, a former U.S. Marine and veteran of two tours of duty in Iraq was found lying unconscious in an apartment complex parking lot in Cobb County, Georgia.

Gamble was attacked by a group of men as he left a friend’s birthday party held at the Concord Chase Apartments, according to police.

Gamble was rushed to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, with severe head injuries. He never regained consciousness and was taken off life support April 8.

Gamble left behind his 7-year-old son, Luke.

On May 1, police arrested Arthur Lynell Batchelor, 37, of Acworth, and Jason Scott Hill, 35, and Tarell Winston Secrest, 36, both of Marietta, while Sean DGene Hall of Atlanta, 38, was arrested a day earlier.

The Marietta Daily Journal has reported that Hall has also been charged with violating his probation stemming from a 2009 DUI conviction.

There had been a total of $30,000 in reward money offered by Atlanta Crime Stoppers and Tina Robbins, the victim’s mother for information leading to the suspect’s arrests. Police have not yet said if the reward led to the arrests.

Gamble was white and all of those accused of his brutal murder are black, and while the details of this tragedy did not rate even a mention from the national press…, such details seemed to become the only thing that mattered to that same press in another tragedy.

So, is the race of the victims and that of the perpetrators the only reason the press has so heavily pushed the Martin killing while ignoring Gamble’s fatal beating?

We have been told many times that the reason for the disparity in the coverage of the Trayvon Martin shooting and other violent crimes was that the admitted shooter, George Zimmerman had not been arrested.

However, that simply does not hold true in Gamble’s case, as no arrests were made until weeks after his death as well.

Unfortunately, violence, murder and racism are sad facts of life in this country and none of the aforementioned maladies show any signs of weakening.

The least we should expect is equal and fair crime coverage from the press, yet we are not receiving it.

The press has a duty to cover the news…all of it.

You also wont hear this name mentioned by Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton...

You won't recognize me. My name was Antonio West and I was the 13-month old child who was shot at point blank range by two teens who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot. A Grand Jury of my mommy's peers from Brunswick GA determined the teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty...too bad I was given a death sentence for being innocent and defenseless.

My family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder was not ruled a Hate Crime. Nor did President Obama take so much as a single moment to acknowledge my murder.

I am one of the youngest murder victims in our great Nation's history, but the media doesn't care to cover the story of my tragic demise, President Obama has no children who could possibly look like me - so he doesn't care and the media doesn't care because my story is not interesting enough to bring them ratings so they can sell commercial time slots.

There is not a white equivalent of Al Sharpton because if there was he would be declared racist, so there is no one rushing to Brunswick GA to demand justice for me. There is no White Panther party to put a bounty on the lives of those who murdered me. I have no voice, I have no representation and unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat innocently in my stroller - I no longer have my life.

So while you are seeking justice for Trayvon, please remember to seek justice for me too. Tell your friends about me, tell you families, get tee shirts with my face on them and make the world pay attention, just like you did for Trayvon.

Cities who have chosen to elect black leadership by promising the moon in free things in exchange for votes are economic disasters. Detroit and Chicago are prime examples, Atlanta and Memphis are not far from being Detroit.

His post indicates that picking cotton would be a skill to advanced for him. He probably has difficulty standing in line to get "free" section 8 housing. An average field hand would put him to shame if any work was involved. Bless his little heart.

obama just said, "35 years ago Trayvon could have been me." I suspect he was as devious as a snake and doubt his character has changed. Bless his little heart.
