First of all, let me point out that this is a very complex case.

Both partys (Martin and Zimmerman) did things that were inappropriate. Very similar to the 1991 Rodney King case. Also very similar to... a bunch of stuff! Including the American Civil War (or "War Between The States" if you prefer). Both sides maid lots of mistakes and the result was a very bad outcome.

If you study History, situations like that are far from rare. In fact, in MOST CASES, you will find that to be the case. Both sides do stuff wrong (morally and logically wrong) often resulting in a very bad outcome.

However I do want to point out that this case IS NOT ABOUT RACE! In fact the race thing is so stupid! The perpetrator (Zimmerman) is multi-racial (including part-black), and socializes with persons of all races (including African-American).

And furthermore I still get annoyed at persons who do not know the difference between Racism and Classism. Both are detestable, however each is different, and has it's own set of you know, like "differences" and stuff. And needless to say, if you wanna put a stop to it, you need to know which one your dealing with ;)

And if I see on more AJC headline about Racism or Sexism... and people just trying too stir up trouble using the "race card", etc. Which is really lame! People like Al Sharpton, who, while I respect the awesome stuff he did in the 60s towards civil rights and stuff, the fact remains that right now, in 2013, he and the others, usually do more harm then good, in most cases.

And ditto for most modern (or "Third-Wave") Feminist organizations. As much as I love Classic Feminism (First/Second Wave, especially First), I absolutely abhor Reverse Discrimination, whatsoever! From anyone, towards anyone.


The truth is that things like Racism, Sexism, etc., are (almost) non-existent in today's society (They'll NEVER be 100% non-existent, sorry.) Homophobia is even almost gone!

The main 3 types of Discrimination still rampant in today's society are #1: Classism (mostly against lower socioeconomic classes, although sometimes "reverse" against the wealthy)#2: Ageism (against both the young (under 18, especially under 21), and the elderly (over 70, especially over 85)), and #3 Lookism (against persons who are less attractive in some way; also covering subsets such as Weightism, Heightism, etc.)

Don't get me wrong, the other stuff does go on. For example, in Lawrenceville, GA (circa November 2012) their was a jewelry store that put up a sing that said something like "Hardware Store For Women". I was like "WTF? I know some female laborers who could kick you're rear-end to Alaska and back!" I wanted too start a like boycott against them, except my internet access was kinda sketchy at that time...

Anyway my main point was about the Trayvon Martin case being very complex and complicated. So many people on the internet don't get that (I'm not speaking towards anyone who posted above, per say, I'm speaking about the populace in general).

That was really the main point I was making. If anyone takes exception with any of the things I have posted please fell free too discuss it. I am always willing too listen and learn form others :)
