The first thing we need to do is hold a celebrity fund raiser for Al Sharpton. If we expect him to keep this going, we need to come up with the cash. All donations are tax deductible, of course.

President Obama = agitator, DIVIDER

It is his interjections that have interfered with cases.

That's what the American public gets when a neophyte is elected to the highest office in the land.

We reap what we have sown.

Now, on to 2014 and 2016.

In LA protesters over the verdict blocked the freeway and threw rocks at police. You throw a rock at a policeman in California because you don't like a jury verdict in Florida.

The justice department is egging this on by stringing this out saying we are looking at it. They have had a year and a half all they want to do is inflame the issue for political purposes.

What are these protesters saying, are they saying that it was ok for Trayvon to strike Zimmerman because he was following him, that he did not strike Zimmerman (not supported by the evidence) or that Zimmerman is required to take a beating?

Sharpton and the Detroit woman should make the video ad. They both can't speak English nor talk without drowning the mic with spit.

I admire President Obama and all that he has accomplished in his life, but I find it sad that in spite of this nation coming such a long way to the point of electing the first African American President that an unarmed innocent Black teenager can be gunned down and the person that killed him can get away with it.

If Obama would keep his stupid mouth shut, there would be no unrest at this point. He is a troublemaker and a stupid bigot. He didn't even know that Zimmerman is Hispanic and that he took a black girl to the prom and mentored many little black kids. Obama is a troublemaker and an idiot and is the sole reason there is more unrest in this country. He's got to go. Reno even knows that. That's why she jumped his sinking ship; The USS LYING IDIOT.
I know that people make fun of you on here, and that no one takes you serious… but there is something seriously wrong with you. I’ve seen you obsess over things to the point where you post the same one word over and over from one thread to the next. It’s obvious that you are fighting with internal demons and that you’re dealing with a mental torture that torments you to the point of excruciating pain… I actually feel sorry for you.

It's still his 'fault' because he's black, just as it's Sharpton's fault, and Holder's fault, and ultimately, Trayvon's fault.

If you're linked to any crime in America and you're black, you're to blame. That's the right's reaction and will always be their reaction. Why?

Because they're racists. Period.

If he's flagged as spam, you should be flushed as crap.
Do you EVER post ANYTHING on topic?
No. You are a major a-hole.
Back on topic.
How nice the Idiot in chief calls for calm after beibg a large part of the problem. Too bad the black poster boy also happened to be a thug wannabe that was trying to kill someone for following him in a neighborhood that was experiencing break-ins.
George Z was attacked while walking back to his car, by a man with a history of violence and crimanal activity. In the act of attempting to kill Mr. Martin, Trayvon was shot.
Most people in that position would shoot too.
Trayvon was no saint, and he brought what happened on himself.
In my opinion, no great loss.

To me it is a shame in this Country that a trial of this nature
Was even covered as it was! First, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jacksons
Did not even know all the facts of the case before they started protests
in the beginning! The jury had the evidence and made a decision based on
Presented facts! For Afro-Americans to react like
"The word is after us" is crazy!
You as a white person walk through a black area of town you will be called names, beaten, robbed or murdered, and never hear a word about it being a race thing!

It's open season only after the blacks beats the victim, breaks their nose and smashes their head in the sidewalk. That's called SELF DEFENSE.
