    I agree, Mak. It seems like every story these days turns into a race issue. This little punk would be a little punk no matter what color.

Many wanted the Zimmerman case to be about race (racial profiling?), perhaps even a "hate crime", but the jury saw ample justification for the use of deadly force in self defense. Police did not initially charge, and the jury did not finally convict, Zimmerman because there was not sufficient evidence to to so.
    I'm certainly aware that SYG wasn't used in the defense case, a year or so after the killing. I never claimed that it was. What I claimed was that SYG was the reason given by the police for not arresting Zimmerman in the weeks/months after the killing, which is what sparked the outrage nationally in the first place. And that claim was correct.

    How it turned into a race war is on the backs of the media, and individuals themselves who stooped to race-baiting with fake Trayvon pictures, calling Trayvon a thug who basically deserved what happened to him, and those who claimed the only reason Trayvon was followed and killed was because he was black.

    First, you have no idea that race wasn't a motivating factor for that sociopath. Second, self defense is not what pushed Zimmerman into the spotlight.

    No, not marketable enough.

    Humm, thanks for the insight...except most of the people he has attacked over the years have been black.

    So? Maybe this was the first time he had the opportunity. You don't know. Had the roles have been reversed, I guarantee the media would be all over the racial aspect.
