    My local FL newspaper headline reads..
    "Zimmerman[guy who shot black hoodie wearer] background confusing,confounding"

    Seems while his father was white, his mother is Latina and his family points out there are also black relatives...

    So why the rush to attack whites?

    Jesse Jackson said the Martin case is getting plenty of media attention overseas, attention that is both embarrassing to white America and humiliating to black America.
    He added: "Blacks are under attack." African American families are facing record home foreclosures and unemployment.

    So Jesse and all you white haters why?
    Zimmerman may "look white" BUT that's like saying all blacks look alike! For SHAME.

    AND then we have idiot basketball team wearing "hoodies"... YEA... what a way to advance further proof of hoodielum, gangsta, profiling!

    NO question the hot headed latino Zimmerman should be on trial and we have yet to hear the WHOLE story.. BUT leave it to idiots to JUMP to conclusions that this is a "WHITE on BLACK" CRIME first of all!
    It was a Latino/white/Black individual that acting on a profile of a black,hoodie wearing, saggy pants teenager who acted aggressively we'll find out with cameras.. OVERREACTED NO doubt!
    But to say it is a "white on black" crime is WRONG!
    To say the entire American whites are hating blacks is WRONG!
    To excuse hoodie wearing saggy pants wearing black teenagers as most likely to commit a crime IS RIGHT!

    GEEZ folks...How often do you hear about a gang of white teens wearing ties, pants NOT saggy, with fedora hats attacking black old ladies?
    NEVER! I've never heard that!
    BUT as stupid as that sounds... YOU HOODIE defenders chastising Geraldo Rivera for his comments about "hoodielums" wearing saggy pants... HE WAS RIGHT and Beck was wrong!

    REMEMBER folks ... if it looks like a duck.. waddles like a duck, quacks like a duck..
    geez you think it is a duck??

    The Latino/jewish/black guy saw a hoodie wearing saggy pants wearing black teenager who didn't respond like normal people to him.. saw him go for a "gun?" and "STOOD HIS GROUND"!

    I mean come on folks... you can't tell me you when someone confronts you, YOU scurry off, saying " hit me again please"... ???

    Whether he was white or not does not change the fact that he initiated a conflict and pulled a gun when it got out of control

    Here's another thing to consider....something different....but, familiar....​

    That's fucked-up......especially when you consider someone must have looked-out their window.​

    You are right! Where were the "bystanders" if this were truly a situation where the hoodie wearing saggy pants teenager was being attacked?

    Could it be there is MORE to it then the screaming headlines, screaming sharpton,Jackson crying racism?

    So as you pointed out why didn't the bystanders jump in???
    We'll find out before the grand jury meets in 15 days or less in Sanford,FL but in either event... the first issue is JUMPING to conclusions BEFORE all the FACTS are in is one of the worst characteristics modern Americans are exhibiting today!

    To me the more recent "harder" looking photo's don't change my view of the tragedy of this shooting. Why however is the media using out of date pics of this young man?

    No, it doesn't if those are indeed the facts. However, people are making color an issue and claiming it's racism because Zimmerman is white and the young man was black. When you realize that Zimmerman is Hispanic, doesn't not even appear white, you have to admit that some are trying to twist facts to fit their agenda.

    Why are some lying about Zimmerman's color? It's because they want to make it about color and to do that, they have to have black and white. Otherwise, their theory doesn't hold up as well. Liberals need to rally minorities before the election and they are using this case to do that. Obviously, they couldn't play the racism card and rile people up if they were honest about this incident being between two minorities. With the illegal immigration debate, they are reticent to paint any Hispanics in a bad light because they want their votes, so they decided to portray Zimmerman as a typical white guy. The facts don't support them, but that never stopped anyone who is trying to divide and conquer.

    It's as simple as that.

    They have an agenda and are using this case for political purposes. They have two goals. One is to further divide races by pretending that Zimmerman is white rather than Hispanic and the second reason is to state their case for gun control.

    You have to have a victim people can sympathize with. A young , innocent looking lad will do the trick. A smart-assed punk turns people off, so they simply went with an older picture to portray the victim in a certain light. It's not about truth, it's about how they want people to see things so they can garner support and further their agenda.

    People are being played and they are so riled up that they can't see that.

    If someone attacked me with a bag of Skittles, I'd sure as hell feel justified in murdering him....not!
