You're calling yourself out for what you are.

Welcome back, Buffalo Bill. But you were never gone.
You had all your racist pals at "bowel."
You can fool some of the people all of the time BUT on your very best day you'll NEVER fool me on my very worst day.
Welcome back as whoever you want to be today. You can change your name and location as often as suits your fancy. But the true you ALWAYS seeps out.
You can't hide, Buffalo Bill. But your stench exposes you no matter who you claim to be.
You stink. Go cleanse yourself in the Fountain of TRUTH. Go wash yourself in the Waters of Honesty. Go bathe yourself in the Pond of Goodness.
Wash your filthy mouth with the Aroma of Veracity. Deodorize your spirit with the Scent of Respectability. Immerse yourself in Intellectual and Spiritual Honesty.
Buffalo Bill, I guarantee that if you follow those instructions that you'll change your name only once more. It'll be a name you'll be proud to have, one that you can live up to.
But you'll only know what that name is once you change your hateful, spiteful, awful ways.
Try it Buffalo.
Don't be shy.
Seems to me, you should take your own advice.

But you're the one who wastes pages and pages of space naming endless folks for their 'racism' when it is YOU who is the biggest offender. This subject is about the Trayvon Martin case and yet you seem to focus endlessly on the people who disagree with you. That is really loony! Now please quit ruining this discussion with your personal issues and get back to the topic. Thank you.

There you go again. Why are you so focused on the people posting here? Obviously, you don't agree with him....so why do you continue to engage him when you don't even like him. Do you have some sort of crush or are you into stalking?

Since you seem so manic on your position, why don't you provide information that supports your pov?

All righty now, 3Von's was a 6'1 165# football playing smart ass, who decided he would confront someone who asked him a question? Didn't realize that person was carrying more than an equalizer?? Poooor 3Von's he took on the wrong person... He gone...

Zimmerman wasn't that tall or athletic so I presume Martin thought he was an easy target. The neighborhood he was visiting had been vulnerable to a serious of burglaries so he had no reason to believe the wise latino would even have a gun.

I call it as it is. If you're really interested in getting back to the Thug Zimmerman, then you're addressing the wrong person. It's been days since I've been on here, but it's been your racist pals who are off-topic.

One of them boasts constantly about killing two people, another fills this thread with his incessantly filthy and profane talk, another (many) constantly deride Blacks. I can go on and on, but the picture is clear on who you need to address with that concern of yours.

In case you haven't seen, it is the racists who come on this thread and spread their filth. I don't go searching for them. They come here.

I have ABSOLUTELY no problem in calling them out.

Just because someone disagrees with me about this case, it does not make them a racist. It is the racist hogwash that comes out of their very mouths and in their very words that make them racist.

I will call them out on it. If your feelings are hurt by that, then your feelings are definitely going to be hurt. I'm not going to be a party to giving aid and comfort to racists. You may. I never will.

You have absolutely no evidence that I am a racist. You will never possess such evidence, as it only exists in your head.

On the other hand, the evidence is plentiful as to the racists on this thread. Their very words indict and convict them to be the racists they are.

Open the eyes of your heart and stop being deceived. You are CLEARLY deceived for you to even think I'm a racist.

WAKE UP!

It's midday!

It seems as though it is you with the crush.

That conversation had nothing to do with you.

Had nothing to do with the Thug Zimmerman case, yet you insert yourself. Do you remember your earlier post?

Or doesn't it matter?

We all have a right to speak up for what we believe. Because you agree with the sick mind of Buffoon Bill none of his hate rants bother you.
I wouldn't know about what Buffalo Bill believes but I did notice the infantile attacking of someone's character over the fact he didn't agree with a view. Kind of ridiculous, don't you think? If you want to whine and complain about the quality of postings, may I suggest you look at yourself and revise your approach? We have a topic so if you would kindly remain on topic, it will allow for a more civil and intelligent conversation.

Oh my freaking God! Your conversation has everything to do with me and anyone else reading this thread. It's a public place, or have you forgotten? You just don't know when to quit babbling and arguing and stick to the topic.

Now, what have you to say about the minor in the house during the shooting?

You strategy is clever but it wont work. Anybody can see that you are just trying to avoid the latest round of issues that I have raised concerning witness #8.

It's easy to see how you and all of your racist pals gang up on a poster when they present an irrefutable "Truth."

I am not Buffalo Bill. I am Casper. But even if I was this Buffalo Bill who you speak of, what does that have to do with staying on topic and answering a simple set of questions surrounding this case?

Why did the Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump "lie" when he presented witness #8 as a "minor" when he knew that she was 18 years old at the time of the shooting?

Why did witness #8 "lie" about not attending the Martin funeral because of a non-existent medical condition?

Why did witness #8 admit to investigators that she had "guilt" about her role in the minutes leading up to the Martin shooting?

Witness #8 is not only not credible, but she is also a serial liar who will be exposed at trial. So I ask you, like I asked that Hawaiian POS who ignored me, what is it that motivates witness #8 and attorney Crump to lie so easily and with such frequency?

Care to make like OJ and take a stab at it?

Or will you continue to deflect and distract and accuse me of being somebody who I am not just so you can avoid addressing this profound "Truth" about The State OF Florida's "main witness"?

Hmmmm, what business is it of yours to butt into a conversation I was having with someone eles? Are you also Be Truthful? I'm pretty sure that was the person I was addressing.

I am not sure how you can make judgements about who I agree with because I am just expressing my opinions on this topic. You may want to consider reeling in your hostile attitude a bit and stay focus on this disussion rather than the personalities of the participants.

I think Zimmerman is innocent and has been railroaded by the media and politics. Much in the same way the innocent kids with the Duke Lacrosse team were.

You seem to harbor resentment towards folks who disagree with your opinion and that's concerning.
