    your inability to stick to any topic, and insistence on ALWAYS personalizing the argument and making childish personal attacks, shows how little respect you have for these issues.

    I'm embarrassed for you.

    Here's how I see it. A black guy in a hoodie does look more suspicious than a white guy in a hoodie to most of society. It's not fair. It not right. It is what it is though.

    If you see some white dude in overalls, dirty boots, foo-man-chu mustache, probably dipping snuff and a greasy baseball cap, you're going to automatically sterotype him as a racist redneck and treat him differently than you would someone else presenting themselves in a different way. And, please, don't insult our intelligence and say that you wouldn't, because we all know better.

    Everyone is prejudice. Libbos do more to keep prejudice and racism alive than any other group in this country.

    What if driving home you saw that white dude as described slowly pacing back and forth, looking this way and that, in front of your house with your wife home alone, and when you pulled up, he came angrily towards you, then turned and ran around behind the house beside your house or behind your apartment complex when he saw you had a cell phone? What if he then came back around towards you?

    Nothing?

    That is what you are saying Zimmerman was REQUIRED to do in your view of law, and anything other than your doing NOTHING would give that dude the right to beat you to death with a concrete brick.

    That neighborhood was Z's home. Martin was not a resident there.

    As a generality that is probably correct.

    Z didn't phone the police saying "there's a black guy with a hoodie you should check out."

    He said M was acting suspiciously, not acting right, and definitely acting like he was on drugs. It was only when police asked that Z said M's race and then with uncertainty until M came angrily towards Z.

    Rivera was just trying to add his own twist to claiming it was some fashion of profiling. Another political actor who's stage is the political stage on TV. Personally, I see them ALL as actors, know they ALL twist, distort and take bits and pieces of reality to form their next performance on the television stage. They are NOT reporters.

    Black people are more likely to be convicted by juries too.

    The bottom line is that black people look more suspicious than white people, no matter what they are wearing.

    I don't agree with that. Anyone well dressed, say a suit and a tie, doesn't really garner suspicion, unless they are wearing black suits and sunglasses and claim to be chasing aliens....

    again, your failed logic has been destroyed by the facts.

    The suit has little to do with the view of these cats.....


    On another note, a carhart jacket, a clipboard and a hard hat, and no one is suspicious of you, and will usually let you into places you are not supposed to go.
