Let me first start by saying I am completely compassionate towards the Martin family, the pain and the loss they are experiencing, I Cant imagine. My feelings on the verdict is that it was the correct one. All the evidence pointed to this being a horrible tragedy where each party made mistakes but nothing criminal ( yes it is not criminal if you shoot someone and you feel your life is in danger). But my main issue with this issue is not Zimmerman or Martin but the media. they saw a story where at first they thought a white man killed a black teenager. then when it was found he was hispanic they labeled him white/hispanic (never heard that before) certain broadcast companies(msnbc) doctored the 9/11 call to charactorize Zimmerman as being motivated by race. Many in politics making it about race as well. and now when it was close to a verdict the media is practically begging for riots. This story has been driven by the media and its shameful. Many of these companies are extremely irresponsable and if there is ever any blood shed, it wil be on their hands.

If N+++++ERS would try to be a civilized race and quit thinking that life is all about rap music, screwing white girls, doing drugs, stealing, robbing, trying to get da biggest rims, living off the government, etc... They might get a little respect.

To be fair, the more conservative outlets were doing the same thing, only with the opposite position. There is something disturbing when opinions on a criminal trial are centered solely around whatever a person's political views happen to be.

Agreed, However the conservative leaning outlets didnt drive the issue into the story it became, they only covered it after it was in the news, they didnt make it news. Then like unlike msnbc they didnt become part of the news by doctoring the 9/11 call. Unlike many liberal outlets they werent invested in the verdict one way or another.

Here we go again , And it all continues .the liberal media beating there drum . Turn on pmsnbc and listen to the ones who made this a racial issue. I'm so sick of it all . Al Sharpton and the rest of them are the biggest racists on the planet. I call it reverse racism , they are against anyone that's not black. I have been called cracker, white mf and everything else blacks call whites and I'm supposed to laugh and go on . But It ain't the other way around. I make one racial comment about a black and I'm in big trouble .its the new double standard of the decade .
