It's just going back and forth is all.
    People usually accuse black people of race baiting, but if whites are getting pissed off over this and are just seeing race and if that is the intention and mentality of the OP, then this thread is race baiting. You have white people acting like whites are the victims in this thread, saying that the arrest of Zimmerman is only because the legal system favors justice for black people and/or pressure from black people like Jackson and Sharpton, saying the Obama Admin gives preferable treatment to black people, Obama is racist, etc. Then you have black people acting like their race is the victim and they have to take justice into their own hands, and/or complain that the legal system works in favor of white people and that's why Zimmerman wasn't immediately arrested.

    This thread and all of it is going round and round as you said. The racial tension people are experiencing is pretty obvious, and it's pretty obvious which posters and people are experiencing the most racial tension.

Officers showed up at Varner’s residence after her grandson, Lonnie Tinsley, called 911 seeking medical assistance for his grandmother. But instead of helping the 86-year-old woman, police officers Thomas Duran and Joseph Sandberg Tasered her, causing her to pass out. “Don’t Taze my granny!” Tinsley says he shouted at the officers, who also are accused of stepping on Varner’s oxygen hose."

    How is this applicable to the discussion?

    But, when 20 whites beat up a black, it's damn sure going to racism, then. Ain't tht right?

    Liberal hypocrisy beats all I ever seen.

    Trayvon is not about race, its about negligence and systematic abuse by police who should have instructed Zimmerman to back off and not to do anything on the phone. But as always, they allow people to be shot or tased unlawfully no matter what their skin collor.

    Whether or not you possess them, you certainly portray them. That is evidenced by the fact that so many that you interact with share that opinion of you.

    trust me my friend, you do NOT speak for even a small minority of this forum.

    the number of folks here who accuse me of such things, is maybe four. Four right-wing, extremists, often times bigots.

    out of 15,000 members?

    shocking that I am not impressed by your failed accusation.
