Although I agree that crime is a serious problem in communities of color, linking it to race seems a little too blunt. I would also agree that reverse-racism is getting increasingly more annoying than racism itself.

Additionally, while the victim is a black, the victor is a multiracial hispanic and not a white.

Though I'm not a person of color, here are some interesting facts about intra-caucasian hatred & racism within:

* Racism/segregation hasn't always been the "European American" vs "minorities " scenario. Before the reunion of the "union & confederate states" ie before 1865, "Italian, Spanish, Portugese and Greek Americans" were classified as "people of color" based on scientific evidence. Back then "olive skinned people were listed as minorities" & considered different from WHITE. However, since 1865, these groups massively self-identified as white during the formation of the American union.

* What i'm trying to say is, Race motivated crimes & hatred are not fueled by "THE REAL WHITES (Americans of northwestern european ancestry)", but usually from the "borderline-white/not-qui te-white communities a.k.a Italian, Spanish, Greek, Portugese - American communities" or by other non-black minorities.

* In case people have forgotten, the first wave of violent crimes started with the illegal immigration of Italians who wreaked havoc in the streets of New York, in the early & mid 20th century. And for many reasons there are still many of us who would like to differentiate ourselves from the southern european-americans. The "W" word could be still be heard in some parts of the US Northeast addressed towards Italian Americans.

Posted on October 30, 2013 by sundance
The egg donor who claimed to be Trayvon Martin’s mother tried to peddle her propaganda at a congressional hearing on Stand Your Ground type laws.
Sybrina Fulton, the woman who claims birthright to dead son Trayvon Martin,…. yet gave him away for ten years to her husbands wife, Alicia Stanley,…. who then upon return kicked him out of the house just before Christmas,…. yet found Jesus just in time to trademark his name,…. within two weeks of his death in a place she never visited until TV cameras were set up,... came face to face with Ted Cruz yesterday:

Did Teddy boy ever come face to face with where he was born?
Will Teddy boy ever come face to face with the Fact that he will NEVER be president?
Will Teddy boy ever come face to face knowing that his political career will never rise beyond being the junior senator from the woman-bashing state of Texas?
Will Teddy boy ever learn that the more he talks, the less he does?
Now, those are the "face to face" things that Teddy boy needs to concern himself with. If he is ever so blessed to be in my presence, he'd best keep his damn mouth shut while I verbally dress him down.
Face to face that!
White men that speak the truth always scare liberal socialists. Ironic isn't it?

Blacks are criminals. Thank God I don't have to live around this type of trash. Trayvon was trash and a wanna be criminal. Got what he deserved. Dead MFer.
The nut you replied to is just proud he didn't confuse the time schedule and advance his keepers watch.
Yes most afrikans (90%) running loose in America are criminals. Those that aren't just haven't had the right opportunity. The remaining 10% are either mentally or physically unable to steal, rob, loot, rape or murder, already in jail or the hospital, or actually employed and surrounded by large percentages of law abiding White citizens.

WRONG, ruth.
I mean, LIAR.
Trayvon was found guilty of NOTHING. What prosecutor charged him with what you're accusing him of?
What court has heard such case?
What jury has convicted Trayvon of what you say he's guilty of?
Tell us, LIAR. Please tell us!
The court of George Zimmerman. Trayvon was found guilty and sentence served.

It's illegal to attack a man. It's illegal to hold him down against his will. It's illegal to pound somebody's head against the cement, break his nose and blacken his eyes. It's called felonious assault.

You have no special message. The only message you have is that anybody that disagrees with you is a racist. George Zimmerman had a message too. That message was that when you attack somebody, you can be shot and killed legally. The message is don't attack people and learn to control your anger.

Does the law apply to blacks when they are the aggressor? If so that's not fair. They should talk to their Congressman and get that repealed. Al Sharpton should be consulted and file a lawsuit against anyone trying to prosecute a black person or allow a White person to defend themselves. And Al should also help take those guns away from White people because they may be used to harm or kill a black person while stealing, raping or murdering for their government entitlement.
Now theres something to talk about!

The mafia was romanticised by Hollywood in American culture. And although this elite group of criminals was in no way representative
of the overwhelming majority of Italian Americans, most Italians have been associated with the mob in the countries psyche.
Blacks, especially, have admired the mob because it helped Italians to overcome the discrimination that they were subjected to when they came to America. So, by emulating the mob, blacks have embraced organized crime.
There is nothing organized when it comes to black crimes. Give the Mafia some credit. In many cases, when they wanted to get rid of somebody, that somebody just disappeared one day. Blacks shoot, stab and beat people to death, and then leave the body and all kind of evidence behind. Then they end up in jail. That's not organized.

In some regards, having the Mafia around was a good thing. They kept the rift-raft out of the neighborhoods. When they ran Vegas, nobody messed around with potential customers and casinos. Now they have scam artists trying to rip the casinos off all the time. People getting robbed on the streets. When blacks move into an area and commit crime, there is no advantage for anybody.

Too bad the black community doesn't share your zeal.
Most black on black murders wouldn't go UNSOLVED if blacks would cooperate with the police.
Black on black murders would dramatically decrease if blacks fessed up about what they knew and told the police.
Then just think, Crisco, blacks could then concentrate all their energy on murdering whites.
Think about it.
Then beg God for forgiveness.

Zimmerman didn't "chase anybody down." He ran after Martin for about ten seconds and stopped. It's all on the 911 audio tape. Martin then stopped between the houses in the dark and waited for Zimmerman. When Zimmerman walked past Martin going back to his truck and off the phone with police, Martin attacked him. Reports of multiple injuries prove that.
Oh, yes that's all on the tape and you saw it all. You want to believe that so you do, because you want a young black man to be guilty, even though he had no weapon, he wasn't doing anything illegal when Zimmerman took off chasing him with a gun and Zimmerman, the whiner woman beater with a police record, not only for assaulting his wife and since, threatening her and her father, but for assaulting a police officer, for no good reason, says he was attacked from behind. Reports prove that he got beat up by the kid he wasn't tough enough to assault the way he did his wife. Not surprising that a alcoholic, out of work, cop wanna be couldn't take on any one tougher than a kid or a woman.

Public intoxication and assault is a crime. That is what Martin was guilty of. What do you not understand about there was no evidence? Evidence Martin was on marijuana in the autopsy report. Only injury to Martin was to his hand and a bullet hole. Zimmerman black eyes, broken nose, and lacerations indicate that Zimmerman was the victim of an attack. Maybe that will help clear things up for you little fellow. Cleared it up for the jury.
Zimmerman had some superficial skin cuts to the back of his head and his eyes didn't look very blackened to me, just puppy dog dumb and guilty. his nose wasn't broken either. And, the police lab said, though there was evidence of THC in his system, it was so small an amount that it couldn't have had any effect and obviously was ingested or smoked days earlier. You're the one who keeps talking about facts and autopsy reports. It's funny how you change them to suit your own prejudiced, animosity towards blacks, who you, like Zimmerman, declare guilty of criminal action by skin color.

I guess you believe that if you tell a lie often enough, people will eventually believe it.

I didn't have to see anything. It's clear on the 911 tape that Zimmerman was chasing Martin. You can hear the phone rubbing against something and Zimmerman out of breath. That's what prompted the dispatcher to ask Zimmerman if he was chasing Martin.

When the dispatcher told Zimmerman it wasn't necessary to chase Martin, you can hear the phone stop rubbing. Zimmerman's breathing slowed down. He continued his conversation with the dispatcher in his normal quiet tone which made it clear he was no longer running. Now........ what do you have to prove otherwise?

Once again, Zimmerman never assaulted his wife. He was never arrested for it, never charged for it, never served ten minutes in jail for it. It was all a lie. And BTW, that was not his wife, but his fiancee. As for the police officer, he was charged but never convicted of assault on a police officer. The charges were reduced and you know it.

As for Martin's race, I went through this with Zazz. Finally I gave her a link to our local Topix after the story first came out and had a lot of things omitted. I stuck up for Martin and said Zimmerman should be thrown in jail. It wasn't until the real facts came out when I changed my mind. Need the Topix link, I'll provide it to you as well. My opinion of the situation has nothing to do with race, but you leftists believe that you can bring people to your side of the aisle by making them feel guilty somehow. It doesn't work.

You mean like when you told us this pedophile only followed the boy for no more than ten seconds?

Or that this pedophile was not stalking the boy even though he was thirty seconds away from the car but two blocks away standing right in front of the boy who was on the sidewalk in front of his house minutes later?
