It's not that its a "White on Black" crime. There are millions of jailed or dead Black people that refute the theory that they get special treatment. Trayvon's case is getting attention because a boy got shot and the murderer is walking free nearly 6 weeks later. There is enough evidence to question Zimmerman's story. He should at a minimum be charged, he can make bail, and get his due in court. But the fact that this man is walking free while a kid was killed for "Walking while Black" means that there is no "justice for all" in this country. Every person - White or Black - should be outraged about this.


What in the actual fuck? The "scary black man" has been a media boogeyman forever. This murder is a straight up product of this. Is he actually saying that the media and the justice system are more lenient towards blacks?

Yes, that's exactly what they're saying.  Blacks get special treatment.  It's the white man who's being persecuted.  This is the rallying cry of white conservatives, and has been since I can remember.

 

(I don't want to say all white conservatives, of course...  but a bunch of them.  Most, I'd wager.)

post #353 of 7710

Well can you blame them? Look at this black guy that just waltzed into the White House, with no qualifications or even a valid birth certificate. They have it EASY, man.

Based on local experience, nothing is going to happen to Zimmerman.  The cops have already circled the wagons.  Evidence has been lost or destroyed, and people who would be willing to step forward have probably been intimidated, or don't want to get involved.

 

I don't even think it's going to trail.

 

Local example:

 

Cops called to a suicidal man.  Crisis team coaxes man out of his apartment, hands on head.  Cop shoots him in the back, killing him.  He was unarmed, and black.  Cop not charged, but fired.  Now an arbitrator has ruled he has to be re-hired:

 

http://blogtown.portlandmercury.com/BlogtownPDX/archives/2012/04/02/frashours-fate-may-take-months-to-figure-out

 

How was that not murder?  He was unarmed, and surrendering.

"Its possible Martin pulled the gun." -some asshole gun advocate on NPR half an hour ago. Which is an astonishing pretzel twist of logic, because that actually becomes a very strong argument against the indiscriminate Concealed Carry law the guy was ineptly trying to defend.

Goddamn white people.

Wow.

 

The only difference here is the world is ablaze with this case.  They HAVE to do something about Zimmerman if not for the simple fact that the entire country might make the Rodney King riots look like a Macy's Parade.  Somebody's going to take a major fall and the cops sure as hell don't want it to be them.

It's amazing to me how conservative news has seized upon this opportunity to stoke the fires of racial discord.  Just last night I was driving in a rural area, trying to find a radio station that would come in clearly, and I heard Hannity talking about how we "never hear" about the black violence in Chicago.  Right, Sean, we never hear about black people committing crimes.  The news only ever covers white criminals.  I wanted to drive off the fucking road into a ditch.

Every weekend we hear about 10-20 people on the South Side getting shot.  It's so common it's sad.  If this happened in a white neighborhood every weekend it would lead every newscast.

 

II just wish someone would record a private Hannity conversation.  I know he just says this shit to stoke the flames and get ratings.

Yeah, it's times like these that make me want to move out of the country.  I have lots of friends in Europe that would gladly let me crash until I got on my feet.  Nowhere is perfect, but some of my best experiences were with Europeans, especially Germans.  They know how to treat a brother.

I am so sorry and angry about what is happening over there

 

I am an Aussie, and we have our own fucktards here as well.. His name is Tony Abbott...  also look up Alan Jones.

 

They do tend to pale into insignificance, with the inbred morons, known as conservatives. In your once great country.

 

I have enjoyed reading of the chewers here, who get angry with what is happening. I am angry too. 

I depair

 

Sorry.. this was just a rant.  I need to go and dream of conservatives dying.

Well, according to John Derbyshire — the acknowledged world authority on "the blacks" — "If accosted by a strange black in the street, smile and say something polite but keep moving."

 

http://gawker.com/5899884/racist-john-derbyshire-writes-most-racist-article-possible-pegged-to-trayvon-martin-case

 

To quote Rex Reed talking about the people in John Waters films: "Where do these people come from? Where do they go when the sun goes down?" (I refer to Derbyshire and his ilk, natch.)

 

...Although Strange Black in the Street would make an awesome name for a punk band in the mold of Bad Brains.

It should be noted that Derbyshire has penned other repulsive crap that apparently wasn't heinous enough to warrant a NR firing....so I call into question any so called 'standards' that the NR might have..

post #377 of 7710

 

I can just imagine Derbyshire, after he lanced all the new boils he'd developed overnight, and finished slurping his soft boiled egg and fried baby seal breakfast, sitting down to type that column, chuckling at his own cleverness.
 
As he strikes the keys on his 1952 Underwood ("the damn K keeps sticking, but she's the only girl ever been faithful to me") he imagines:
 
"They will grind and gnash their teeth, but they won't be able to do anything!  I will say one black in six is smarter than the average white!   A racist wouldn't admit the occasional black is good for more than just manual labor!  (That's what Mexicans are for! Haha! I must remember to relay that one to Krauthammer!) It's like when I said women should be able to vote, they just shouldn't do it.  Like breaking wind, it's the province of the male.  Speaking of that I must pause to defecate.   AHHH.  Where was I now?"
post #378 of 7710

Reading some of the comments on some of those links from the main articles makes me want to vomit.  I don't know why I do that to myself.  It's just amazing how many racists there are walking around with normal lives, using biased facts and statistics to fuel their hatred (blacks have lower IQs, higher testosterone, therefore commit more crime, rape more white women)...it just makes me think back to all the parties I've been to, all the strangers I've run into who could be having these Neo Nazi agendas.  I wouldn't doubt if most of these racists appear perfectly cool...but underneath a cess pool of hate and bigotry.

So no grand jury hearing tomorrow, the special prosecutor's office will decide whether or not to arrest Zimmerman.

 

At this point I don't see how they can NOT arrest him, at least to calm everything down for a while.  If they don't arrest him, you can expect riots and/or race wars that afternoon all over the country.  Or maybe we now live in such a short news cycle society, that nobody gives a shit anymore.

That's what burns me so much about the "Conservative" movement today. I think there is a crying need to argue intelligently for traditionally conservative values, but the "debate" is being conducted by sub-morons in the Tea Party and Derbyshire types.

post #384 of 7710

Fox News paints socialists as neo-Nazis. Surprising!

Zimmerman created a website, apparently. Go check out what he put on as a cover image. Disgusting. The cite is down right now, but you can read all about it at the link. Fucking creep keeps on creeping.

post #386 of 7710

Oh Zimmerman will get lots of support I'm afraid...plenty of mouth breathers out there.

post #387 of 7710

With the American flag backdrop, "Long Live Zimmerman" , and all the other self-aggrandizing bullshit on that website, I wonder if the reason the homepage doesn't feature Zimmerman photoshopped onto Mount Rushmore his because he didn't think of it or he didn't have time to make it.

post #388 of 7710

Seriously, if this entire load of epic broken bullshit speaks to how little America has apparently learned since Rodney King and the LA Riots - or indeed since the post MLK assassination riots while we're at it - then maybe it's time for another round of molotovs in the streets to get people asking the sorts of questions and reflecting on the cultural state of the nation that STILL doesn;t really seem to be being engaged with by a large proportion of the mainstream US media.

 

It's loomking to me at this point that a fourteen year old ME learned more from the LA riots than America seemingly has.

 

Oh that,s right, you have a half-african president now so apparently racism is solved. Carry on.

You know, this entire time I've been giving Zimmerman the benefit of the doubt; I didn't believe that he was the stone-cold racist that some people were claiming he was.  

 

But this makes him seem like the moronic douchebag that every news-outlet has painted him as.  Jesus Christ, it's as if he assumes that he should get a medal for what he did.

post #390 of 7710

Everyone in this thread was there. Everyone in this thread knows exactly what happened.

post #391 of 7710

Good to see you, George! How's life in hiding?

 

No, nobody knows what happened. Nobody can know what happened because the police didn't arrest the fuckign guy and investigate the situation like they fucking well should have. The fact that the kid was a)unarmed, b)being followed by Zimmerman, and c)shot by a guy with a track record of violent outbursts and obsessive behaviour towards ethnic minorities certainly suggests that a crime took place, as does the fact that the guy's been in hiding, providing no evidence of his "life-threatening" injuries, or the fact that his lawyers are floating bullshit like "adult shaken baby syndrome" as a reasoning behind his actions.

 

You can't convict the guy, but you can make an educated guess that "oh I stopped following him but then he came out of nowhere and tried to beat me to death" isn't an accurate representation of what went down. Maybe, just MAYBE, all these things should have had their day in court, instead of an unarmed kid's death being waved off because the guy who killed him totally said it was self-defence.

 

I gotta say, between this and the global warming debacle, you're making an artform out of ill-informed indignation.

I'm sorry to go back to you again - well, not "sorry" but reluctant - but what kills me about you choosing THIS point in time to jump and start down this "everyone here is prejudging this man!" path is that it comes immediately in the wake of this self-aggrandising website that paints HIM as the victim. Like, this passive-aggressive sniping about the "CHUD groupthink" is nothing new for you - you've parlayed this hard done-by newbie angle into your schtick since you arrived here. But striking up a snarky one-line retort NOW? When this guy who, regardless of what happened, took a young life and should probably be showing a little humility about it, launches a "I'm the VICTIM! My life is RUINED! Give me money so that I can still eat!" plea? That just seems like you're thinking along the same lines, and that this guy's plight outweighs the dead teenager whose killing has yet to be justified.

Had to look this up.  I gotta say Zimmerman's lawyer certainly has some balls.  

 

Again, if Zimmerman was supposedly beaten this badly, shouldn't he have been  mmediately  taken to a hospitable?

 

And if he did potentially suffer brain damage, was he really fit for questioning?

post #396 of 7710

So when the prosecutor declines to make an arrest due to lack of evidence due to the utter and complete incompetence of the Sanford police force, what then?

 

I can see some riots in Florida, but while people seem to be paying attention, the level of OUTRAGE just doesn't seem to be there for nationwide violence.  Making matters worse (and hearkening back to that constant news cycle mentioned earlier) people who seemed sympathetic to the Martins and their side of the case are now just getting "sick of hearing about it" (though in their defense they still tend to follow that up with "just arrest the guy already.")

 

I predict that's how this will get buried...people are already getting "sick of it" which gives the news outlets all the excuse they need to lessen coverage until it just quietly goes away.

post #397 of 7710

I think there'll be some serious violence if an arrest isn't made.

The "when" is kind of a problem though. The investigation is/has been in a constant state of "underway" and a decision can always be made in "just a short time." And the longer it goes, the quieter things are going to get.

 I really question whether it was just simple 'incompetence' on the part of the Sanford PD.

From some of the material that I've been reading, it really seems more like 'willful incompetence'...which, IMO, is light-years worse.

post #400 of 7710

If you grew up in my town if you went into certain neighborhoods you were "jumped" by blacks. If you went into other neighborhoods you were jumped by "whites". My neighborhood had the dope-heads who would steal your stuff but they hung at a particular ball field and were avoidable. My friends and I have been jumped by both blacks and whites and let me tell you getting an ass kicking from either racial group feels indistinguishable. We'd play scheduled pick-up basketball or football games in either end of town and on the hill and if you lost you usually had to fight your way out and good luck finding your bike if you left it behind. Not baseball season cause everyone played either Babe Ruth or Little League and if you did play sandlot ball everyone had bats so it was Mutually Assured Destruction at that point..
