    Way to not get it.

    Zimmerman is a Hispanic man. But not according to most of the media, who latched on to his name and tried to make this a "white on black" crime.

    Sadly, you knew what I meant, and you know I'm right about the double standard, so you start this backpedaling, liberal-group-hug diversionary tactic to placate yourselves. It's just what you people know and do.

    #1. "Hispanics" are not a race.
    #2. by all accounts George Zimmerman, under the US Census IS white.
    #3. There is no such thing as a "white" or "black" last name.
    #4. So, if we're to go by the fact that US census does not consider "Hispanics" as a race, yes this was a white on black murder.

    I'm sorry you couldn't back up your "white last name" nonsense.

    Hispanic and Latino describe ethnicity, not race, that's true.

    According to State of Florida vs. George Zimmerman, the jury found George Zimmerman not guilty of second degree murder as well as manslaughter and he was released. So there was no "white on black murder" as you claim.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    There does seem to be some bouncing around though. Race and ethnicity in the United States Census - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Apart from calling Zimmerman a "White Hispanic" they may have added the White part in order to not offend their Latino constituency.

    he isn't looking deep enough at the situation to assess that maybe the choices the average white person makes is not as self destructive as those choices made by him and his minority cohort
    that would require insight and a willingness to engage in true introspection. it is much easier to blame someone else for our self inflicted problems

    and this is not a uniquely black thing. white trash will usually blame blacks and the welfare they receive for the inferior circumstances they face in their lives
    notice that neither under-performing group will take ownership for their own plight
    That was a great post...right up to the "white trash" part.

    No, it's a recognition that SYG laws have resulted in a lot of people not facing any criminal legal scrutiny, based on telling the police it was an act of self-defense.

    If you're going to shoot someone, even in self-defense, your actions ought to be scrutinized by a legal process.


    Exactly. And this case should never have gone to trial either, just as the jury said.
    The jury said nothing of the kind.


    Right. Until the race hustlers became involved.
    The outrage was pretty much immediate, and would have happened if Sharpton et al had said nothing.


    It doesn't matter. What good does it do for thew US President to talk about the Zimmerman case? Why did he mention it at all and stir up more animosities, suspicions, protests, etc. The US President is a loose cannon, and a fool.
    So wait, it doesn't matter that you accuse the President of inappropriately getting involved, when he did no such thing? How curious.

    The President is a "loose canon," when he refrained from commenting on the case for a year and a half?

    He was "stirring up animosities, suspicions and protests" by commenting only when the verdict was passed? Seriously?

    Transparence is not your virtue. Look at the man and tell me he's white. Check mate.

    And by the way, how come there aren't any white people anymore with the last name Washington or Jefferson? Just an odd observation, nothing more.
