The more stupidity you post, the uglier you are shown to be. By your very own words, no less.
I sincerely hope that you continue to post. PLEASE do not stop. Generations from now, when the color of one's skin is not to be mocked and degraded, the writings of you and your hate-loving pals will serve as a passing reminder of what has passed away.
The hate that you display should never be forgotten. It will serve as a reminder of the flames of evil that consumes the souls of racists, idiots and fools.
Never again shall hate rear it's ugly head once it's stomped out. The posts of you and your evil-possessed pals will teach a lesson to future generation that to hate is to be evil.
And evil MUST be confronted and dealt with. Evil doesn't have the right or privilege to prance freely about, spewing ignorance, stupidity and hatred.

Interesting that you don't mind other people being "hostile" as long as they are batshit racists like you.

Do you consider these posts to not be hostile?
You didn't take exception to any of these posts:

Again. What's your point?
The fact that a particular shooter, who happens to be olive colored, in one particular shooting, was not black, relates to the fact that an overwhelming percentage of all gun crime is blacks shooting each other in our inner cities ... how?

Are blacks so angry with the white populace that they are shooting each other as a direct result?
Surely you make a joke.

After Zimmerman trial, senator proposing more diverse jury pools

Last Updated: Thursday, September 05, 2013, 9:12 PM

TALLAHASSEE --

From the shooting, to the investigation, and even the members of the jury, the topic of race permeated the George Zimmerman trial.

It was an almost all-white jury that acquitted him, which has since raised even more questions about race.

Now, there's a proposal to require juries to be more diverse.

It’s something residents like Joe Foster support.

“Any serious matter such as this, you have to have the right representation, or it wouldn't be a trial. It would be a hung jury. It would be a witch hunt,” said Foster.

Democratic State Senator Gwen Margolis is behind a proposal that would require a jury to look like the demographics of the county where trial is held.

In Seminole County, where Zimmerman’s trial took place, that would have meant more men and potentially more minorities.

Lawmakers now find themselves at the sensitive intersection of race and justice after the controversial trial.

While demographically reflective juries may sound like a good idea, critics argue they'd be anything but fair.

Some lawyers say picking jurors on the basis of race and sex could shrink the pool of truly impartial jurors.

Democratic Representative Alan Williams says justice can only be done when that pool is as diverse as the public at large.

“This is just another step to make sure that the judicial process is as fair as it can possibly be for all involved, both the victims and sometimes the folks who are accused of committing the crime,” said Williams.

Deciding what's fair is a matter of debate, which lawmakers are about to have.

OK, let's go with your claim of white.

Again, just how does that make a point which relates to the overwhelming number of gun murders in the inner cities where blacks are shooting blacks?

You overlook a simple fact.
Trayvon Martin had legal resprsentation, as does any plaintiff or defendant.
The jurors were screened by both councils of both sides and the jury was agreed upon.
That is what jury selection is all about. Both sides get to question potential jurors to be as sure as possible that the jury will be impartial.
Any type Affirmative Action introduction to our jury system taints the pool and destroys it's impartiality.
There were blacks and hispanics and probably Cubans in the jury pool. They were rejected for one reason or another. Maybe you could check into that and find out.
It is a person's ability to be impartial, not their ancestry or color, that reigns supreme in jury selection and rightfully so.
