    I think it is. So is the repeated belief of many here that blacks will riot and kill if Zimmerman is found not guilty.

    Yup, as a stand-alone comment, it is.

    It is a racist statement. It may even happen.

    False!!!!

    People like Al Sharpton and other race baiters faning the flams, it's not out of the realm of possibility some blacks will riot and maye harm Zimmerman as well.

    Personally, I think there is a reasonable possibility that it may happen.

    But, that doesn't mean I will assume that a group of blacks is going to be dangerous.

    I don't feel strongly that something like that would happen, but if someone does, would that mean that they are racist???? To me, not necessarily.

    Is it more important that a statement be true or that it be PC (non-racist)?

    how about statements in general ? Should the local law enforcement be criticized for not preparing for the possibilty ?
