If say, President McCain or President Romney had said "Marley Lion could have been me," I see how any racial component could have been implied by reasonable people. I'm sure some people would find a way, of course, but I don't see how reasonable people would.
A white president could not say the same things that Obama did. You see, Obama's statements imply "racial profiling" was what lead to the killing (even though in the 9-11 call, Zimmerman says he couldn't tell the race). We live in a country where there is basically no racism towards white people. It happens every day but it's not compelling tv, it's not news worthy. People just don't think that it's possible for a majority to be treated unfairly no matter what, The Oppressors can not be the opressed, right?? Find a black owned business that only hires black people then try to file a complaint or get somebody to speak out about it.
Be sure to let me know how that works out for you, please.
There is no NAACP for white people, there is no Al Sharpton or Jessie Jackson for white people and there is no BET for white people to raise awareness about any of it.
The current wave of white Democrats consists of alot of sheltered white people who think they are "fighting for the little guy" or taking up some cause to make right injustices done in the past. They live in nice areas, they have educations... they would never live in the ghetto let alone visit it at night but pretend to know what happens there. They think welfare just helps poor people and that nobody abuses it because they've never lived in a place where drug addict mothers trade $300 worth of foodstamps for $100 worth of drugs. If they do have black friends at all, they are like Carlton from the Fresh Prince or Blair Underwood. They fight for gay rights but they aren't gay themselves. They may even claim to "feel the pain" because an uncle jacked them off at age 9 or they looked at a dudes dick while showering after P.E.
It's easy to be an arm chair quarterback.
I would also like to have a machine that lets me watch events from parallel universes. Where did you get yours?
I used the same one that you used to go back in time and see that Zimmerman stalked and murdered an innocent little black kid in a Hollister shirt. I just set it to "future" is the only difference.
NBC edited the 911 call to make Zimmerman sound racist, and tried to present Trayvon as if he was younger than he actually was. However, that doesn't make what Zimmerman did any less wrong.
Really? I mean, based on the evidence, the ruling stated otherwise...but yeah, you have evidence that proves Zimmerman should be in jail, right? There's no doubt in my mind that Trayvon is dead and Zimmerman got the shit beat of him, the question really is was it self defense? Just because a neighborhood watch guy follows you or asks you questions does not give you the right to try to beat him to death, I mean people run from the cops all the time. I mean, it's really close-minded to look at all the facts given and just say it's all Zimmerman's fault, how can you know that?
