    I have official govt statistics from the Justice Department and the Center for Disease control. you have a collection of OP/ED articles and blogs......

    and FWIW, none of the articles you linked backed up your assertion that whites are BY FAR the biggest drug users. Did you even bother to read them before you linked them?

    in case you missed them, here are a couple of quotes from your articles

    even though the two races use illegal drugs at roughly equal rates.
    Blacks and whites use illegal drugs at approximately the same rates,

    Sorry - this is the first time you ask for proof of anything. However here are the definitions of defend:

    defend - definition of defend by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    de·fend (d-fnd)
    v. de·fend·ed, de·fend·ing, de·fends
    v.tr.
    1. To make or keep safe from danger, attack, or harm.
    2. Sports
    a. To attempt to prevent the opposition from scoring while playing in or near (a goal or area of a field, for example).
    b. To be responsible for guarding (an opposing player).
    c. To compete against a challenger in an attempt to retain (a championship).
    3. To support or maintain, as by argument or action; justify.
    4. Law
    a. To represent (a defendant) in a civil or criminal action.
    b. To attempt to disprove or invalidate (an action or claim).
    They both kept him from harm and they supported his statements. All of which makes what they did a "defence" of Zimmerman. I'm sorry this makes you angry but you should really learn to relax and not support violent people like Zimmerman so much. It makes you look like a hypocrite when you're then attacking police for shooting a kid they thought was a threat (because he actually held a toy gun made to look real)

    I read them and apparently you did not. since I seem to know more about what they said than you.

    did you not see the two quotes from two of your articles that said exactly the same thing I did?

    all your articles demonstrate is that blacks get arrested more often. a point which is not in contention.

    there is nothing in any of the articles you linked that supports your ridiculous claim that whites are BY FAR the biggest users of illegal drugs.

    in case you missed or ignored them again:

If the answer is "yes", then you have every right to be inflamed.

    PS: Shame his pattern wasn't obvious when he threatened his lying wife, her father, resisted officers, was given a restraining order against a fiancée, etc. But yes, we know, his "pattern" only emerges now to you and TM's case had nothing to do with him and his long and detailed history of violence.

    and



    self pwnage is the best pwnage
    :0) Let's see ..

    WHITES ARE THE BIGGEST USERS OF ILLEGAL DRUGS IN THIS COUNTRY BY FAR. I said that.

    Just using what you so anxiously highlighted in red .. if whites and blacks are using drugs at the same rates .. which is disputable according to which drug one is talking about .. as indicated in the articles .. then given the disparity in population totals, would that not indicate that there are FAR more white people using drugs than black?

    .. and to given that truth .. that absolute FACT .. it plays into the larger question of arrest, probation, sentencing, and the wide disparities found there.

    Here is something you skipped right over ..

    "White Americans are more likely than black Americans to have used most kinds of illegal drugs, including cocaine, marijuana and LSD. Yet blacks are far more likely to go to prison for drug offenses."

    I can post lots and lots of intelligent thought and statistics that you just skipped right over throughout the articles I posted.

    Your approval of anything I post is not required. I'm real comfortable letting facts speak for themselves.

    Btw .. words like 'pwnage' is for adolescents.

    I make no attempt to change your mind about anything you believe. I'm voicing my perspective, my action, and what I see happening.
    ok, but you're failing to actually explain your opinion in any meaningful way. You're simply throwing out racially charged terms then failing to defend their use when asked. When asked, you simply cop-out and go "well, that's like my opinion, man". Great, but that hardly shows a logical connection between anything.

    From my perspective and the perspective of a great many, the Martin case is racist
    Ok, based on what?,

    the application of 'stand your ground' is racist
    "stand your ground" wasn't even applied to the case. It was a basic self-defense claim


    and the vast majority of those who support both are republican.
    Which really has nothing to do with anything here

    It is not required that you agree with any of that.
    Agree with what? You seemingly lack the ability to articulate anything here besides general outrage, with you seemingly being unable to even explain *what* you are outraged about

    What is important is those who do believe it have the right to lawfully act upon it. Your participation is not required.
    No one claimed you didn't have a right to be pointlessly outraged. One just would hope that there was some logical basis for the things you do, beyond "I'm mad"

    You have a right to believe whatever you want.
    You know what else I can do? Defend those beliefs on some logical basis ...

    arguing some totally idealistic and naive viewpoint does little to further your cause here. Regardless if race is completely a social construct, or not, people regularly view and divide each other based on such criteria

    Racism Is the Problem, Not the Stand Your Ground Laws - Room for Debate - NYTimes.com

    I repeat, it is the application of these laws that are the problem .. no differently than the application of drug laws. Both are undeniably racist in their application.
