Hedkwab: What you don't know is that a lot of 'Whites' in the south have an ancestor that was Black. Records were sketchy and sometimes falsified back then, misogyny was kept a secret. Most people light skinned enough to pass as white did so.

Most people in the south would find it hard to prove they don't have any mixed ancestors, they know that now and are less likely to be racist because of it.

There are racists of every color, creed, income level, sexual orientation, and location. There are people in Africa fighting each other over a minor difference in skin color and most people here would call both groups 'Black'. There are Arabs fighting Persians fighting Kurds fighting Turks fighting Greeks and they all look olive skinned to me.

Laugh all you want sizzle chest. It's true.

I've been to towns up north, where people walk up to me "YOU'VE SEEN A BLACK PERSON?! WHAT ARE THEY LIKE?! DO THEY STINK?! DO THEY REALLY STEAL EVERYTHING?!"

Racists.

Slightly More Information
It sure sounds like:
Zimmerman saw a black kid, called 911, followed him in his car.
Confronted kid, a fight broke out.
During the fight the kid was shot.

Who started the fight? Was Zimmerman allowed to confront the "suspect" because he's Neighborhood Watch? Is the only reason that Trayvon was confronted because he's Black?

It's truely sad that a young person was killed, but calling for the other man to be crucified isn't going to help matters.

well this thread is about 50/50, lemming to coherent thought ratio, which is better than i expected. I love all the "white people get away with everything" comments about a Hispanic dude, lol.

@drworm2002

Yep ignore the fact that other residents called 911 and saw the teen on top of Zimmerman. It's not like media is controlled by political parties with an agenda........ oh wait.

He got in because he was visiting his father! He left his fathers house and went to the store then was walking home when this guy saw a black guy and called the cops. They told him to not approach him, but he went after this kid with candy and soda and no gun and shot him. If the shooter was black he would be in jail right now.

How did this kid get into the 'gated community' in the first place ?

Because the gates in these communities are like bicycle locks: they won't stop someone who wants to bypass them, they're really just deterrents.

Sorry, but the cops wouldn't have just let him go if they thought it was murder or even manslaughter.

This is not the real story. George called 911 to report a suspicious person. As he got off the phone the kid attacked him and started beating the crap out of him and slamming his head against the walkway. All the while saying "you're gunna die tonight motherfxxxxx" George was screaming help when someone in a nearby apartment called 911 again. George's shirt came up while the kid was beating him, revealing the gun that he is licensed to carry. The kid went for the gun and they struggled for it, George ended up shooting the kid and saving his own life.Stop pulling the race card, George is hispanic, not white.

I'm sure the teen went into a gated community he didn't live in to hand out cookies though....

Black gets shot in white neighborhood: "MURDER! RACISM! CALL THE FEDS! CALL JESSE JACKSON AND AL SHARPTON! BURN THE PLACE TO THE GROUND! RIOT!"

White gets shot in black neighborhood: "That dumb bastard should have know better than to go there."

whatever really happened we probably will never know for sure since only the neighborhood watch guy can say what happened at this point, and there is no way to prove him wrong/right besides just taking his word.

There's a serious lack of facts and info in this sensationally slanted hack job disguised as journalism.

How is his past criminal record relevant to this crime?

Why did they choose a photo of the youth smiling and a scowling picture of his shooter?

Even the wording is intended to sway you in an obvious direction.

Meh.

What made this person "suspicious" in the first place? Race?

The force is strong with white people in Florida.

No information to say anything.
Did the rentacop over react?
Did the teen challenge or charge at him?
No way to know from that report.

unicyclemstr-"I'm pretty sure shooting an unarmed person in the chest is not self defense,regardless of if he attacked first or not, thats a kill shot."

Then you would be wrong. There is no law that states you must meet force with similar, but not more, force. Or do you want a law that says as long as a 250lb thug is unarmed, a 100lb woman can not use more than her fists to protect herself?

unicyclemstr-"Unnecessarily confronting somebody"

What makes you think it was unnecessary? He could have been doing everthing from 'walking to church for a prayer meeting', to 'in the middle of raping a nun'. We only have his parent's story that he was 'just walking home', which is what the family ALWAYS says.

Seeings as there were black families in the neighborhood, I highly doubt a member of the neighborhood watch would call the police saying "There's a BLACK GUY walking down my street! What do I do?!?!"

Civilian neighborhood watches have no powers whatsoever.
