They are - you are not listening.

And yes folks are talking about Chicago, Oakland and all those other places where too many of our folks are slaughtered on the streets, movie houses, classrooms, etc. Just like the slaughter of 20 children in their classrooms, the murder of a seventeen year old should be "talked about" - at least by those who care and question why.

We talked about 4 dead Americans in Benghazi for about 2 seconds compared to the 24-7 loop the MSM has dedicated to its anti-Zimmerman campaign for the last 17 months.
Do we even know who Antonio West was?

Seriously?

Why are you even discussing anything on here if you didn't follow the trial, where numerous witnesses, police, experts and physical evidence all showed Martin as violently attacking Zimmerman at the time he was shot.......

You call Trayvon a "racist" for no reason at all. Dismissed.
Calling someone a "cracka" is indeed racist.

Testimony from the trial showed that Travyon used such a term to describe Zimmerman.

DISMISSED!

Dearie, Zimmerman killing an innocent teenager on the streets of this country is a huge issue - and yes four killings in Benghazi are too

But even a third grader could tell the difference.

Having our Ambassador raped and killed, our Embassy ransacked, and 3 others murdered, is way more important than some Tupac wannabe getting shot by some hispanic dude.

Had a 2nd grader tell me that.

Telling unsupported "rape" stories, lying about what was even attacked (hint: it wasn't an 'embassy'), and trying to pin the blame on our President - instead of the terrorists who committed the atrocity - is more important to righties than the truth will ever be.

Because it's party before country for you guys, all day, EVERY day. And lies before facts.

"Cracker" is an old term for a white yokel from Georgia, it may be derogatory these days but isn't "racist." Whites just want to create fake equivalencies so they can pretend black people are as racist as many of them are, sadly.

Hint: even if Trayvon had been a racist and used a racist term, it diddn't justify his killing. Just in case that confused you.

1. I have no idea who "harv" is or why you think I'm he

2. I'll comment on any thread I feel moved to comment on

3. You are not in charge of this thread or a monitor here, you are a noisy troll who spends all day, every day making personal attacks on others and using racist, personal remarks to troll for responses.

There would never have been an attack on the Consulate if it wasn't for the stupidity, and selfish, egomaniacal President of the U S.

A slur is a slur, plain and simple. Guilt racked white liberals want to pretend it's a benign term so they can pretend that blacks aren't just as racist as whites, if not more so, sadly.

Plus, if you had actually paid attention to the trial, you would know it's "cracka" not "cracker"

You would also know the justification for his killing was the violent assault he was committing at the time of the fatal shot.

Self defense - no confusion there!

Not just mistaken but an obvious falsehood. Nothing Mr. obama did or didn't do had anything to do with the terrorist attack.

It appears you're willing to lie and bear false witness in order tos mear the President. Not very American, are you?

"Cracka" is a matter of pronunciation, don't be so foolish.

And until you stop slurring black Americans, and letting others like yourself get away with such slurs without comment, I doubt I'll be willing to take your indignation seriously.

The only evidence of an "assault" came from Zimmerman. He CLAIMED he was "assaulted" rather than simply getting into an altercation which led to him shooting Martin. And as we know, Zimmerman shot the only other witness.

The President is in charge of his Administration, all of it including his Secretary of State. He named a woman with no experience who ignored the request for additional security, and he got those people, one an Ambassador, tortured, beaten, and murdered, while he slept the sleep of the innocent. He is an overbearing, self centered, SOB, and he is guilty of being totally incompetent.

Read ANY Topix discussion board concerning the Martin case and you'll find slurs in virtually every post by the pro-Zimmerman crowd. You know it and I know it, so let's not play dumb, OK?
