There are plenty of white "specimens" I would NOT take home either.
Your comments are silly, unpatriotic and ignorant.
Well of course Id cull any white appeasers and apologists. Liberals, queers and muslims too. I can just imagine you fit into 2 or 3 so don't worry we would sweep you and your ilk too!

I can't see getting offended by the way somebody feels. You can't change the way you feel. You either feel a certain way or you don't. I only get offended at personal insults. That is what's uncalled for and that's why you'll never see me do that except in response to a personal attack.
Sure people of different races can get along at a church, at work, at a bowling alley, at movie theater. But it's a different thing when you are talking living with each other because blacks and whites live very differently.
As I said before, people of different races can live together peacefully, but people of different cultures can't. Many blacks when moving into a white community will bring their ghetto ways with them. They're not about to change for anybody. As they preponderate, it causes white flight, and those who had to abandon their home will hold resentment towards the group of people that are responsible for that action.
There are many comments that are not personal. All black people blah blah blah some say. I do think it's actually futile and a lot of rambling. You said black people move into white areas with ghetto ways. All black people are not careless. I keep my yard clean etc. My neighbors are all black and they do the same. 85 year lady who lives next door has a beautiful garden that she works in everyday. At night it's not loud. People should stop stereotyping others. I know there are a lot of good white people out there, in-fact some in this forum are against racism and I can understand their frustration. Those same people have sense enough to know that there are some black people who are racist. I do understand that if I don't like the negative talk I can stay out of the discussion and that is what I intend to do. Everybody have freedom of speech. I brag on Jehovah's Witnesses because they truly are peaceful people with good reputations. I don't agree with all their teachings but their conduct speaks for itself.

I reiterate, dearie, that betting on how a seventeen year old may turn out in adulthood is "stupid".
As a point of reference, a man called Bush had a number of shady episodes in his life and he became our president.
So don't assume, keep to the present, keep to the facts and bet on substantive issues.
Btw, could you have "bet" that Zimmerman would have trolled/stalked a seventeen year and killed him? What were those odds?
Its rare that I waste time debating an idiot like you. Zimmerman didn't stalk anyone. And he showed extreme constraint upon blasting that goblin. Id have warned him with a 45 in his face as he emerged from the shadows to keep his distance and keep his goddamn paws in plain sight. The coward scumbag would probably been reserved for someone else to shoot dead later. Had he advanced I would have left him laying there too. He had the choice all to himself to jump or not to. Its history what he chose. Hes just more daisy fertilizer now! Good riddance!

It could, but white trash usually stay away from middle-class neighborhoods. Plus the fact that neighbors can retaliate against white trash without being accused of racism or perhaps facing legal action against them.

Usually, white trash don't like white civilized people and are happy staying in their own areas. Yes, rarely one might try to sneak in, but they are usually met with great harassment from neighbors. We constantly call the police on them for the littlest things or perhaps make frequent complaints to the building department for any housing violation we see.

Eventually they get sick of the community and leave.

Zimmerman admitted he was following (stalk/creep/crawl) Mr. Martin and was told by the dispatcher not to continue following him (stalk/creep/crawl). Enjoy :

At 2:17, Zimmerman’s voice wobbles and he starts breathing heavily into the phone, indicating that he has started running.

At 2:22, without any prompting other than the aforementioned noises and breathing, the dispatcher asks “Are you following him?” to which Zimmerman responds,“Yeah.”

At 2:26, the dispatcher says,“Okay, we don’t need you to do that,” to which Zimmerman responds,“Okay.”

Your lack of command of the English language is amazing.

Following is not stalking.

That is why they are two different words.

You hear the word "racist" around all your posts, that is for sure, and it has nothing to do with what color of skin you are.
You are a racist.
Are you white?
The statement that only whites are racists, of course, is [email protected]
Give us Webster's definition of 'racist'? Oh that's right it has nothing to do with 'race'? You are making a 'joke' right? Ax Sheila Jackson Lee, or any other racist Congressman?

And yet you work under the table cleaning out toilets in section eight housing.

White trash like you stay where you are at because that is what you can afford working under the table.

Please....... continue the rest of the story. Never mind, I will.

A couple of seconds after Zimmerman said he would stop following Martin, the brushing of the phone stopped. Zimmerman's breathing returned to normal. HIs voice eventually returned to his normal quiet tone as he finished his conversation with dispatch. He had said he lost sight of Martin.

The conversation lasted about another minute giving Martin way more than enough to run home. But he didn't. When he attacked Zimmerman, it was less than 100 feet from where Martin lost Zimmerman.

And now (As Paul Harvey famously said) you have the rest of the story.

I never said that JW"s are bad people, just annoying people. They come here once a year banging on my door and I don't appreciate it. If I don't answer, they stuff their flyers and literature in my doorway, again, I don't appreciate it.

I don't know where you live, but I can promise you that over here, every area that had an increase in black population had an increase in crime, police activity, and violence. This happened in the two neighborhoods I grew up in and the neighborhood I currently live in now. Our city had to stop forth of july fireworks because every time they had the event, blacks would start gang fights and riots.

Many of our good stores closed up and left because of robberies. We have a shopping center here that years ago, was known across the country. Today it's a pathetic looking place where half of the stores are unoccupied. Same holds true of the once largest mall in the country which is only five minutes away from the mall I'm speaking of. Closed up.

the government played a part in this as well. HUD moves their inner-city lowlifes into nice neighborhoods, and they soon bring their lowlife friends and family with them. In fact, our school had to create an investigation team to weed out the kids who didn't actually live here. Inner-city people would come in and bring their nieces, nephews and even neighbors to attend our schools that their not paying for.
