Yeah, it reminds me a lot of how the right wing media couldn't let the Benghazi dead horse go - flogging that old mare for months and months on end

Zimmerman was attacked and he defended himself. There is no crime in following someone - Trayvon chose violence and he was the one who acted wrongly but we don't seem to see this in the headlines.
What about the poor black children being shot in Chicago by other blacks - they seem to look the other way when it is a problem with violence in the black community

Obama and Sharpton are the ones who keep stirring the pot. Sharpton needs the money and the fame, otherwise he is just a washed up old racist. Obama has to keep this alive in the media to drown out all his scandals - Fast & Furious, Benghazi, IRS, spying on Americans under the guise of national security, failure to catch and/or stop Snowden, etc etc. He stated that if a "white male teen" were involved, "both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different."
Except Zimmerman isn't white, any more than Obama is!
Why does Obama and the liberal press continue to suggest that this case is about white on black? If you want to bring race into the Martin-Zimmerman case, then call it Hispanic on black. Why is it that Obama can ignore his own white half and identify himself as the "first black president" but he and the liberal press refuse to let Zimmerman pick his own identity as Hispanic, instead preferring to identify Zimmerman as white? It simply doesn't suit Obama's (or Sharpton's) purpose for Zimmerman to be anything than white, that is why.

that's a laugh, and GZ didn't?
how do you know who grabbed/pushed/punched first?
where is GZ's DNA on Martin?
there was conflicting neighbor testimony as to who was on top
we do know that GZ followed Trayvon in the dark without calling out, initiating a conversation before approaching him face-to-face
without warning or identification of himself (resident, neighborhood watch, blah, blah, or of his purpose) before closing in, of course Martin would be defensive and fight if threatened
GZ 'life threatening' injuries required 2 tiny bandaids and a swelling nose which returned to normal in a few hours
the real crime here is using a gun on an innocent person

As others have said, I too would like to know where the outrage is for all of the black (and white, hispanic) teens killed every day by accident and/or senseless gang violence. I would like to see Sharpton and the entourage of outraged rappers lead that particular bandwagon....

It's not often I say this, but the President is right on one point, if Trayvon had been white, the aftermath would be different. This story would not have made it out of Florida. No one would care other than the 2 families involved. Even if it had been written up in the local papers, it would have been a 1 day story, maybe with a follow-up if there was a trial (doubtful.)
