    Mistake. Fair enough.
    It wouldn't have gone this far had you payed attention to what you were responding.

    People continually trying to lob racial issues on it, that really have no connection to it, doesn't make any meaningful point.
    You're entitled to your opinion .. as I am mine. I make no attempt to change your mind about anything you believe. I'm voicing my perspective, my action, and what I see happening.

    From my perspective and the perspective of a great many, the Martin case is racist, the application of 'stand your ground' is racist, and the vast majority of those who support both are republican. It is not required that you agree with any of that. What is important is those who do believe it have the right to lawfully act upon it. Your participation is not required.

    You have a right to believe whatever you want.

    The evidence is that Trayvon returned to confront Zimmerman and attacked. That is not standing your ground.

    Only because you choose to look at it from that perspective.
    But not only that, but that perspective can be shown to be wrong by the evidence.

    But there may be some on your end for being called out on posting inflammatory words.
    If you find the comments inflammatory, then you are indeed angry. Here's the definition of the word:

    inflammatory
    ɪnˈflamət(ə)ri/
    adjective
    adjective: inflammatory

    1.
    relating to or causing inflammation of a part of the body.
    "inflammatory cells"
    synonyms: causing inflammation, causing swelling; More
    irritant;
    technicalerythrogenic
    "an inflammatory lung condition"
    2.
    (especially of speech or writing) arousing or intended to arouse angry or violent feelings.
    "inflammatory remarks"
    Inflammatory - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    in·flam·ma·to·ry
    adjective \in-ˈfla-mə-ˌtȯr-ē\

    medical : causing or having inflammation

    : causing anger
    Now, I'm sure my comments didn't cause a physical inflammation in you. So they did in fact, cause anger - still it does nothing to avoid the fact that my question is a simple one and one you can't answer. Feign all the outrage you want.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    How absurd.

    Try again.
    Recognizing that they are inflammatory has nothing to do with being angry.

    Actually, someone who is in "whistling" mode, can get pretty interesting sounds if they get out a few good coughs while "whistling".

    Again, don't know anything about the specific incident, just saying I have been around thousands of "wheezers" (all adults)and some of the sounds are quite interesting.

    Yes, the evidence and the history is how I choose to look at it.

    I've seen the evidence, I don't need your perspective of it to determine my conclusion.

    The case is over, and Zimmerman is the poster child for 'stand your ground.' :0) I get that. But 'perspective' is something I'm not sure conservatives have ever been introduced to.

    Sorry, if your opinion is that they are inflammatory cause you so much anger - however, that's your beef, Mr. Excon. It still doesn't make them so. However, I can imagine why you'd take issue with such a question. Here it is again:

    Do you think the police who defended him when he killed a black teenager, won't do so now that he's threatened a white woman?

    Keep on weaseling out of having to answer the question.
