How do you feel about the Africans who sold their fellow black Africans into slavery to the white folk who came to their shores? Are they any less culpable for selling their brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers into a life of servitude?
ANd you do realize that indians were enslaving, raping and killing members of rival indian tribes LONG before white man came to these shores right?
Learn a little history. It'll do you good and make you smarter.
Hebrews and Egyptians bought and sold slaves all the time.

Hoodie-Wearing Gunmen Kill 1, Wound 5 in Bobby Rush's Chicago District
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/...

13 shot, 2 dead in Chicago in six hours Thursday night (in Bobby Rush’s district) Of course, he has body guards, paid for by taxpayers. Let all the race pimps walk down the streets they claim to represent without bodyguards. Yeah, that will happen. LOL!

So sorry that a young man lost his life, both men made bad decisions, the one for following and the other for returning.
Very sad.

I don't think animals even comprehend CNN or the other leftist news outlets. Some don't have cable.

What kind of Palin fan would say this about the right wing's stand-your-ground hero? I guess the anti Hispanic racism has overcome the anti black racism in this one case since the black guy is dead, anyway, and now you want to get rid of the non immigrant Hispanic guy.
Yes lets get rid of this child killer. Hey you better be careful cause Zimmerman still has a 9mm and your child could be next

YTou're obviously an idiot and selective about your chastising. The person I was responding to was the first to bring up "centuries" of wrong-doings. Why aren't you jumping their shyt?"

Answer: Because it doesn't fit you're agenda.

Have a nice day fanatic.

Another idiot post by you. Obviously no one gives a shyt about some anonymous OB poster. But idiots like you seem to give a shyt about morons like the millionaire Michael Moore.

The real irony is that little people like you will take a fncking in the ass by MIchael Moore and Al Gore and call it wonderful.

That shyt cracks me up right there.
