Yes I realize that a young blk man armed with his fists, beat a young hispanic man, and if the hispanic man wouldnt have had a weapon he would be dead.
Your slanted, biased view bears no resemblance to mine so there's no reason to pretend to "agree." Nor does your version bear much resemblance to the facts of the case.

If your "young Hispanic man" hadn't been stalking and harassing the youth he killed, there would've been no killing. Acting as if Zimmerman bore no responsibility for the situation is simply dishonest.

Is that your goal? Just to upset people? Facts and truth are obviously not your goal. You have presented no facts but only lies and to accuse people of racism which shows you are the racist.

My goal is to argue the truth. Apparently this has confused you, for some reason. Obviously you can't list any "lies" I've supposedly told or how any of my accusations of racism have been unfair.

So all you can do is foolishly accuse me of racism, which marks you as a fool.

Just purchase your guns people. Purchase your ammo. Be responsible until needed. These maggots have become what they accused others of and are blinded. They see the successes but do not understand the failures. So it is some one else's fault. They love deadly violence and abhor civility as there is a choice and they choose the former. Irresponsible behaviors proves it. From conception of illigitimate children to shooting a child in a drive by to collecting a benefit of some kind for near life. It is easier then studying to be a good citizen. They fear other cultures wising up. they know the resources will dry up and being real men and women will be presented to them or else. And that goes for us all. America has so much potential but must renew itself. And to do that we must get past the false racist allegations and the men and women who profit from it.

Remember, the weapons must be purchased to what you can afford and ease of use is preferable over complication. Fence walkers, be smart. Make sure the attacking perp is dead. And he/she must be attacking. Head and chest. The lawyers will show up to blame you otherwise in Orwellian America. May God bless you from these evil cretins...

Sorry to say, but I have not seen such a mess of Racist...YES..Racist bunch of no nothings about presidents and what they face each day of their lives as president...and especially as an African-American president.
who is facing a terrible nay saying bunch of idiotic Republicans who care nothing about anything except their on going greed and war mongoring.

Bush and buddies are the ones that put us in the deep red and left it all for the Obama administration to get us out of it all. Instead the Republicans fought all the way to destroy any good their RACIST minds did not want an African American president to accomplish. That was way too much for their gonads to stand up to. Their manhood was shrinking quickly so they had to beat the drums and do such stupid demeaning hurtful things to try to tear down the middle class....and are still at it.

What is going to happen when a female is president? Same thing...we will see a great rise of the chauvenist pigs. lol

So...grow up and think about the past administration and what happened in Iraq over nothing but oil..and what debt we were left in ...My Lord...people are so ignorant!!

Let us continue the IZA (Ignorant Zimmerman-ass-assumptions) and think if Mr. Martin and this President are similar, perhaps Mr. Martin would have become the second Black/White President.

We will never know.

The sewer talk from Fux and their ilk are disturbing to watch as they trash talk about gangsters, thugs, etc. but of course they are pandering to those "low information voters" who prefer to hug their guns, hug their bigotry and do not want to face up to the problem we have in this country. Too bad - but predictable

Razi..all the man had to do is be president of all. and by that stop with the political agendas that reward part of the working class who are sliding into semi poverty and poverty. Tax cuts and family rebates will be a start. Don't you think? I mean at one time Dems did this. Bush did it several times and still took guff from the left. There is no more money for all of this. And we can fix things or improve them. But that would mean an affect on voters and which party they choose. So we won't.

Ronnie Gregory was indicted today for the murder of Kenny Herring.

My brother-in-law, Kenny Herring was murdered by Ronnie Gregory over the Memorial Day weekend. This occurred at the home of his girlfriend's mother's while Kenny and his girlfriend were sitting on her mom's porch. The person that shot Kenny happens to be his girlfriend's husband. They were apparently separated, but still married. What enrages me is that the Brookshire community is mostly not even aware of this murder and who committed this crime against our family. The Brookshire newspaper paper wants to conceal this due to the influence the Gregory family has within the Brookshire community. I want to get this word out and make sure that people know what kind of an animal Ronnie Gregory is and what he did that Memorial day weekend. He actually shot Kenny to death less than 10 feet from where his 7 year old boy was laying on the couch. The Brookshire newspaper representative stated: They prefer not to release negative news. OMG!!! Are you serious? Let me make one thing very clear. This will be known throughout the community. I will personally make sure of it even if the Brookshire paper decides not to publish this in the paper.

Black juror has found him innocent.... JUSTICE FOR ZIMMERMAN. Funny! no one hears about the white marine beaten up and killed by four African thug want-to-be.

Blacks kill people(including Whites) daily, how come the media isn't talking about that and people arent protesting?

Bottom line is president should be handling more important matters and NEVER inject his personal opinion or beliefs into a publicized case like this.

Oh yes, more division amongst the people. Let's divide the people more and have them argue race.
That will take the eye off of the ball.
With the people focusing on Zimmerman/Martin fiasco, and with the President pushing his weight into a non debate, along with Sharpton and Jackson driving more division.
People then do not pay attention to:
-NSA spying
-Obamacare patient databases
-More surviellence camera across the US
-The funneling of weapons into Syria to push Iran to enact the defensive pact they have with Syria thus starting a war in Iran
-The lies that the media and government that have been exposed as Syrian rebels and not Assad uses of Sarin gas
-The militarization of all state and local police forces
-Drone strike policies and innocents that have been killed
Shall we keep going?
But instead of talking of these true issues, let's talk Zimmerman/Martin.
Look over here at this hand, nevermind the other hand.
And you people are being played like a fiddle.
You know this is not going to change. Your job is to try to convince the masses of the real world. The unbelievable thing is that we live with total controlled communications. So the next best thing is to make the best out of it as someone will eventually get the blame where incarceration, redoctrination, slave labor and death will occur. The path to least resistance has two endings if people purchase weapons. The first is the Christian end times. Non violent Christians will get it. Several years later whether through secular or a God exists there will be retribution. The second is the low IQ, morons, dead end men and women in personal lives, unemployable public welfare recipients, violent people of all sorts including patriotic, the aging who will live with a lot less, and all the rest. So not being one of these is the idea in a nazi/commie environment.
