    Since sharpton has protesting covered why isn't the loud mouth doing it now? Oh that's right I forgot he can't play his race card. To a racist like Sharpton there is no value in the death of a black against another black teenage

    Because the family of Zimmerman's victim called Sharpton and asked him to help. See how simple that was. You sit in front of the Internet, you could have found out yourself.

    I'm outraged that sharpton picks and chooses certain black deaths over another one. Their is no value for a racist like sharpton with black on black crime.

    So you think Sharpton should be the only one to be outraged over the death of a black teen

    Where is Romneys outrage?

    He seems too think it's his job so try again. I notice you are defending the racist Sharpton way too much.

    Well, Sharpton does seem to insert himself into "high profile" race situations; in local or non-controversial areas, not so much. I think it's fair to point out that he is just a publicity hound.

    On another note, I was surprised to see the new peak of school behavior in this video - the "90% attendance" certificate. "Son, we're so proud that of the 100 days last semester, you only skipped 10." I remember as a kid there were certificates for perfect attendence, but nothing less. Just another sign of our "applaud mediocrity" society. :clap2:
