Where are the protest for local Blacks killed? Why is there so much emotion for a young man in Florida but none for Columbus youth?

"I am Trayvon Martin?"

Really?

Sad.

Blacks couldn't care less when they kill their own. But when whitey may have been protecting himself, that's a crime.

In fact blacks care profoundly when a family member is killed--regardless of circumstances. Aren't you part of the mocking crowd that hangs around to make fun of any comments made by grieving family members here, or back in the day on the Dispatch comments?

But, I don't think you are going to find a lot of cases of black on black crime where someone says "yeah, I did it" and they are not arrested and charged.

But, you knew that already, didn't you?

He wasn't talking about family members, he was talking about "the black community". Where are the mass demonstrations when one of them kills his own kind, or a whole family for that matter? Seems they only "care" when it gains them some victimhood status.

Again, the demonstrations in this case grew out of concerns that SPD had little intention of seeking justice for the crime victim (the dead teenager can rightly be regarded as a victim, can he not, without begging an abusive "victimhood status" claim?). Not only was there no arrest of the man who admitted to the killing for 6 weeks or so, but the SPD formally announced it was closing the case because they had no evidence to challenge the self-defense story.

Further, this has never born any similarity to a gang shooting, a drug deal gone bad or any of the other things typically suspected in cases of black-on-black killing among low-income young males.

Now then, did you really not get that?

How many demonstrated in Chicago (a city with over 50 TIMES the population of Sanford) when that young girl Hadiya Pendleton was killed?

The alleged killers were arrested almost immediately.

Hundreds attended the funeral and her killing has been national news.

Such was not the case for Trayvon Martin--until the demonstrations drew attention to the case.

BTW--there haven't been demonstrations in relation to the shooting of Jordan Davis. But again, there was an arrest almost immediately--despite claims by the alleged shooter of Stand Your Ground self defense.

Had she not attended the inauguration, there would have been none of that. She would have been just another number in Chicago as blacks shrugged their shoulders. And you know it.

I didn't bring her to the table as an example.

I believe that Tony was trying to make the case that there were not demonstrations in Chicago because the killers were black.

I would strongly suggest that the fact that they were arrested had a great deal to do with there being no organizing around that killing.

It took longer to arrest Cordell Jude, probably because there weren't any demonstrations.

That is absolutely true.

Every so often their is a national case that "excites" the Black masses and reinforces those who live by the principles of White Guilt and Critical Race Theory which are two sides of the same coin, like Reader (White Guilt) and Wise American (Critical Race Theory)always agree and reinforce each other.

Remember Bernard Goetz a few years back. He was attacked on a subway and fought back and was demonized by the liberal media and Al Sharpton in particular just like George Zimmerman. Those who refuse to learn the lessons of history (Liberals) are doomed to repeat it.

Bear in mind that Zimmerman's attorney cancelled the self-defense hearing before the judge--which could have granted him immunity from prosecution. Instead he is taking his chances with a jury. Meanwhile his strategy seems to be to put before the public eye a lot of stuff that he will not be allowed to introduce in court. Trying to sway the jury pool.

Demonstrators marched through downtown LA last night chanting the threat from the last LA race riots….
no justice, no peace…..
What do you think will happen when they do not get what they consider justice?
History says that there could be rioting and burning given the response of irrational, immature and emotional people now that White Guilt and appeasement are the ruling principles of our nation. The squeaky wheel gets the government grease.

History also includes acts of terror, including rioting and burning against blacks by whites. What is your point?

Whites lynched and burned true. But typically they didn't burn down their own neighborhood.
Again, is there a point?
