I agree with you 100% because this is exactly what I thought after O.J. Simpson was acquitted in the criminal trial. Funny how American negroes were not upset by that travesty of justice.
Go ask some. I asked and heard that the cheers were because a black man finally got away with murder. Prior to that, only whites could get away with murder and it happened all the time.

From my point of view, the OJ trial was not so much about race as it was about wealth. OJ was a rich man, and rich men can get away with murder. Nothing new there at all. 980

And that reaction effectively eliminated any moral high ground blacks may have had when discussing race.........

that, plus in his culture, killing a honky is not really a problem, so it worked out fine for his people.

That's simply not true. I don't personally know one black friend that thinks OJ was innocent.

A normal life would have been to stay hidden in the bushes and let Zimmerman go back to his vehicle as he was doing when jumped from behind.

I remember Billy Beer.

I wonder if someone is about to launch Zimmy Roach Spray.

I saw a guy wearing a tee shirt with the head of Bob Dylan over big letters ZIMMERMAN.

The first lack President was supposed to unite the races, and improve relationships. Instead this President has made the white-black racial relationship worse then when there was a Democrat KKK. Someone wrote recently that blacks killing blacks outnumber the deaths from the KKK.

BY far, most of the whole world of people public do not want gay stand issue in their countries, where Russia is one--gay issue is not an International issue, other than the particular policy of individual policy, which cannot tell others to do what--as this may be a violation.

Gay stand protesters and trouble-makers from London to wherever, including Obama, are viewed as making destruction to themselves and the world, in addition to harming the Olympic spirits and human rights freedom of athletes to participate.

Russia is no different to more than 120 countries around the world about gay stand policy.
At this time among majority of world of so many 120 countries on the planet, by using Russia to say about gay issue is simply a failure of those like Obama , to defy most countries' policies in addition to harming the Olympic spirits and human rights freedom of athletes to participate.

Russia's gay policy is an internal policy like others', which says all gays are treated like equal and no gays will be fined or picked on during Olympic competition period, other than other countries gay business should be kept to their privacy and ownselves and must not tell (Obama as one) others to degrade themselves as the mainstream public world to a huge degree reject such gay program, including Russia.

BY far, great majority of Russians do not approve gay parade and such that Obama is being viewed as making destruction to himself and the world.

U.S. condemns car bombings in Iraq that killed at least 69 people----

====

Regarding the above just who has generated that mess?

As US did forcing out UN inspection,in addition to act on forced bombing, US must answer to the mess it has created the mess in Iraq.
By saying of condemning, it still cannot recognize it has done the very wrong by committing such wrongdoing.

The Prosecution deliberately seated a woman jury figuring they would be partial to a youth being shot. After the facts came out, and they saw Travon was not 14 as they tried to pretend he was, but a big hulking 6foot 5 inch, 175 pound man high on pot, and he attempted to kill Zimmerman. The state had no case. The law is no place for social engineering. The law is about truth.
