But Zazz the truth is people can un-learn bigotry and hatred. I did. And the kids in my 'I Love Diversity' after school class, are too.
I wasn't just ashamed of believing what my family taught me, I was so ashamed, I decided to make sure kids had a chance to learn the truth about other races and cultures at an earlier age than I did.
I know it doesn't mean the hateful, but unspoken thoughts I had about Blacks growing up never happened, but it does make them quieter in my memories.

The difference is, you were open minded. You wanted to learn and grow as a person. These bigots are stuck in their hate, they thrive on it. They love to hate.

I too have many relatives who are bigots. However, they never stoop to the level of these haters on here.

I traveled extensively at a young age. I learned that their are diversities in people everywhere. You can't cookie cut people, especially based on their color. That's just plain stupid.

I know these people won't change. Many of them are elderly and they have taught their children to hate in the same way they were taught.

I don't think they are representative of our society anymore though. They are just old fogies stuck in the past and unhappy with their own lives.

Homicide Trends in the United States, 1980-2008
Alexia Cooper, Erica Smith
November 16, 2011 NCJ 236018
Presents findings from data on homicides that occurred in the United States from 1980 through 2008. It also includes overall homicide rates for 2009 and 2010. The report contains a series of tables and figures that describe homicide patterns and trends. This patterns and trends release analyzes homicide trends by age, sex, and race, including homicides of children under age 5 and of persons age 65 or older. It examines the relationship between the victim and the offender, particularly in cases of intimate and family homicide. Data include homicides involving multiple victims and offenders, circumstances surrounding the death, justifiable homicides, law enforcement officers killed, homicides cleared, and homicide trends by city size and weapon use. The data are primarily from the FBI's Supplementary Homicide Reports with summary data from the annual report, Crime in the United States, for 2009 and 2010.
Highlights:
In the last decade (since 2000) the homicide rate declined to levels last seen in the mid-1960s.
Based on data from 1980 and 2008, males represented 77% of homicide victims and nearly 90% of offenders. The victimization rate for males (11.6 per 100,000) was 3 times higher than the rate for females (3.4 per 100,000). The offending rate for males (15.1 per 100,000) was almost 9 times higher than the rate for females (1.7 per 100,000).
The average age of both offenders and victims increased slightly in recent years, yet remained lower than they were prior to the late 1980s.

<quoted text>Might be evidence that happened. they got transcripts from zimmermans cell phone. martin was talking to his 'ho' on his cell as it was unfolding. It shouldn't take much of a court order to supeona those records from the carrier and it is relevant to the case.

That's whats gunna get zimmerman life?

LOL, I wouldn't doubt if he left his cell on, recording the whole incident. I wouldn't put it past ANY teenager to do that. HAA listen while I kick this dudes ass, LOL maybe even live streamed it to post it on youtube so his posse be seein him gettin down...

That would make a big boom wouldn't it, either way.
A witness did see Martin beating him and the autopsy reveals no evidence that Martin had injuries other than bruised knuckles and a gunshot wound. Zimmerman's injuries was a broken nose and lacerations to the face and back of the head. Pretty good evidence for self defense.

The state's attorney has already shown a reasonably intelligent and prudent person this evidence at the probable cause hearing. The judge agreed that there was enough evidence pointing to Zimmerman's guilt to have him stand trial for murder.

Kind of makes me feel sorry for them. Nobody can truly be happy with all that hate in their heart. Not sorry enough for them to excuse their behavior, but their lives must be misreble.

That's not how it works. The prosecutor can spin whatever story they want to a Judge and get a warrant. Also a Judge only had to feel that there is enough evidence for an arrest warrant not that there is guilt. Duh. In this case if you saw the hearing you would see that when the prosecutor obtained the warrant they did not mention to the Judge that a witness saw Martin on top of Zimmerman and that Zimmerman's nose was broken and he had lacerations to the back of his head. It's that easy for an officer or prosecutor to get a warrant. You really should get more informed about the case because it just make you look ignorant when you comment.
