Why do you people always have to automatically start screaming racism every time something happens to a black person? I think the watchman acted stupidly and shouldn't have been carrying a gun in the first place. At least we're not blaming the white man this time. Or has Sharpton figured out a way to do that yet?

A 'hoodie' has become synonymous with "GANGSTA". Remember the image of KKK 'hoods'? How can anyone say the image of a black "gangsta' in a hood is not intended to cast the same impression?

When a young black pulls a hood over his head in hot weather,(and very often accompanied by BLACK glasses at night) we can safely assume he intends harm to someone. If one walked through my yard or business trying to hide his face and look all mysterious and dangerous, I might be tempted to do something drastic too.

I'm willing to bet that had that young black been dressed as a clean cut and presentable young man, there would not have been any confrontation whatsoever.

Rap rymes and nasty/violent lyrics have put a stigma on young blacks that is not shared by the vast majority of whites, so there is NO room to cry, yet again, "racism"!

When a record is called "COP KILLA" and features young black "GANGSTAS" in that garb, then "profiling" as blacks call it, definitely seems to be warranted.

Black while walking in a gated community, armed with skittle's!

17 year old kid!

I don't think that should carry a death sentence, especially by a community watch cop wanna be that was trigger happy and a racist!

While I think there's more to this story than anyone
knows at this time, the fact that the Shooter here had grass stains on his back and a bloody nose will
help support his Self - Defense / Stand Your Ground
defense he intends to use. Right or wrong it will be
up to a jury to determine the truth and render a decision and we all know how Fla. Juries fare at that
( i.e. Casey Anthony case ).

Oh, yeah??? Just what exactly makes it "racist"?

I'm so damn sick of you people whining, crying and playing the 'race card' every time a black gets in trouble.

You want special treatment and we want you to act like you consider yourselves equal instead of deserving another 'something' for some trumped up reason.

The guy wasn't even cold and you crybabies pulled out that old frayed and worn out "race" card. Where is your pride?

Black on white crime is 84% more likely than white on black crime. Yet, we never call you people racist because of it. Grow up!!

It's no secret that constant nagging is creating more racists.

I pray for the guy's family and wish it had not happened. However, I expect Ol Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to lead a virtual lynch mob after the man who shot the guy.

They did the same thing over the trumped up Duke Lacrosse rape case, and got booed out of town after the boys were proved innocent. Big Al never apologized. Those boys were called "racists" thousands of times, but they were totally innocent and a black prostitute had lied about being raped.

Jesse and Al went down and raised holy hell about the "Jenna six" case. The outcome was the same. No apology!!

Where is the pride? Where is Al's and Jesse's honor? Why was there never an apology? Where was the ACLU? Those guys were white though........

Let's have a good ol debate about this issue without calling each other names. I invite you to make your point.

What you guys fail to take into account is...

Zimmerman is VERY hispanic. Take a look at the guy.

Ask LAPD - Latinos and blacks are much more likely to fight among themselves than blacks and whites.

When Zimmerman approached Trayvon instead of the other way around,he became the aggressor and the stand your ground argument should not apply. What complicates things to some degree is that there appears to have been a fight between the two and Zimmerman was afraid of being whipped or having his gun taken away from him. We don't know all the facts and may never know but regardless it would appear that Zimmerman should not have approached the boy. He had already been told by a police dispatcher not to do that.

Yes indeed, my friend. I don't just recklessly come a' posting without at least trying to know what I am talking about to some extent or another. It's
good to see more people ( you, a few others ) that take those same steps.

Or Robbing the Hood, hard to say at this point

Blacks with Hoodies in a gated community, the kid was expelled from school, trouble maker! Mommy and daddy have two different last names, if he knows his real daddy!
Don't go out at night around people's home wearing a hood! Common Sense! Just sayin!
