Sadly, it is true. Details matter, but regardless of the details, the tragedies march on undiminished.

I could provide numerous links, but that would sadden me even more.

This one should suffice, as representative.

I can't watch the onion being peeled this time with the spinning and distortion. There was such hope, 50 years ago. There was exactly one black person in the town I grew up in. Then I found myself working my way through college working in a Kansas City ghetto for an old Russian Jew, challenged by homeless winos. Being stopped by the cops for running (to get home to do homework). It was a huge cultural shock, but I have become somewhat civilized over time. But I can't get used to the waste. We waste everything and the worst is people.

There is nothing more to be said on this one until the investigations are complete.

You are correct, as usual.

At least no State Grand Jury. I've seen nothing on the Federal investigation yet, so I suppose a Federal Grand Jury, is still possible..

I'm sorry but I will say it again, the only reason any of you are talking about this is because George Ziimmerman looks white, when he really is Latino. I believe that Zimmerman deserves prison because the evidence points to him being guilty. If it had been a black man who had shot poor Trayvon it would NOT be getting this much attention. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson showing up at these rallies is just because they get paid to. Also on CNN a Black Panther store mist group put out a bounty of $10,000 on Zimmermans head. Why is this important? Because the FBI is doing nothing about it. If the KKK put a bounty out on a black mans head, then the FBI would be all over it. But they are not going after the BP's because they are to afraid because they are black, and Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton scare them. We need to recognize this.

You act like racism isn't an issue.

It is. Especially among the conse(R)vatives, who don't seem to care too much about Mexicans either.

Just remember, this hack has been writing this stuff for years.

The rest of the World knows, now you can too.

It was 1 million dollars offered.... it's been nearly sanitized from the net at this point, however, traces remain.

Don't get me wrong by this comment. I believe Zimmerman deserves jail and he was looking for trouble. Please tell me someone agrees with my other comment though.

you asked for a reply - IMHO
I like Sharpton. He's not great. I dont think he is in it for the money.
Maybe for the power.
"Black Panther group put out a bounty of $10,000 on Zimmermans head." IMPLIES dead or alive - which is not true.
The reward was for "capture" which is just stupid & headline grabbing.
I'm not sure about your FBI concept, but there is a federal investigation in addition to the new local prosecutor .
NOW
here's my bottom line -
The primary issue here is not racists
The primary issue here is not bad policing
The primary issue here is not guns
The primary issue here is not Tayvon.


The primary issue here in the NEXT Travon & the NEXT Travon & the NEXT Travon & the NEXT Travon & the NEXT Travon & the NEXT Travon & the NEXT Travon & the NEXT Travon & the NEXT Travon & the NEXT Travon & the NEXT Travon


We must get rid of the stand your ground laws and the influence of the NRA & ALEC
