    No argument here.

    I must have been reading a different thread where the whole point was how horribly persecuted white people are.

    You must have been. Because this is about the obvious yellow journalism that is today's news.

    You don't remember the original reports of the purposefully edited 911 calls? You know, the ones intentionally edited to make it look racially motivated?

    "Inflamed" what? From what I can tell, the only thing Obama's comments did was piss off conservatives, which seems to happen every time he opens his mouth.

    There were lots of things surrounding that incident and the trial and aftermath that were unnecessary and inflammatory. I think Obama's comments were pretty far down on the list.
    Regarding CNN and the missing jet, I agree that one was beat to death. The only slack I'll cut CNN (and the others which were also too focused on it) is that it involved a lot of people (and their deaths), and it isn't something that happens every day. Planes don't just disappear. It was very Amelia Earhartesque. Trayvon Martin - a black guy shot by a Hispanic guy. That probably happens every 2 days in Gary, Indiana.

    Obama's comments implied that Zimmerman profiled Martin and followed him because he was black. As I said earlier, nobody knows if that's a true assumption or not. Obama should know better than that. That only inflamed people who declared Zimmerman a racist profiler, in my opinion.

    *Looks at thread title*
    "Nope"
    *Looks at posts on first page*

    That was a big case that had ramifications on a stand your ground law. Not just a simple robbery.

    This from the person who said that nobody cares if a white person dies. Now you're trying to make it not about that. What a hoot.

    There seems to be no disagreement regarding the teen's guilt in murdering Trapuzzano, so I'm not seeing the parallel between this incident and Martin/Zimmerman.

    So unarmed guy gets robbed and killed...killer in jail

    Unarmed guy gets killed in altercation...killer not in jail.

    That seems to make the two event s almost nothing alike.
