Zimmerman V. Florida


Recommended Posts

:lol::lol::lol:

I never SAID that it was the full definition...

I said that I copied that part of the definition directly from the link that you provided.

You're right. I made that statement because that was, in fact, the context in which I used the term "people of color".

I don't give a fuck about what the blue bar said were synonyms to that term.

How you arrived at the conclusion that I was trying to "twist" anything is beyond me - especially since I said that I wasn't only referring to blacks.

You do realize that my 17th and 18th century comment could have applied to people of Native-Americans decent, don't you?

You do realize that my 19th century comment could have applied to people of Japanese decent don't you?

You say "that part of the definition." That's my point... that WASN'T the definition. Look at the symbols. You don't give a fuck about the blue bar? The blue bar is showing that YOU AREN'T DEFINING THE WORD. You're defining a similar word. You used a definition from a DIFFERENT word. You copied and pasted THE WRONG FUCKING DEFINITION.

Now, back to your original straw-man argument....

The whole argument by the race-baiters is how the BLACK MAN is unfairly profiled and trialed in America. How the BLACK MAN would have received far different treatment in the judicial system. And now you want to introduce everybody BUT whites.

Alain is definitely one of "those people." hahaha dafuq that ever means...

"those people" are the ones who give half truths. Dude, click the link I posted, then look at what he copied and pasted. It was about 75% of what was on the page. He selected the parts that supported just his argument, instead of showing the full picture.

OK OK< everybody take a deep breath.

Lets all just agree the GZ got away with murder and move on. :P:lol:

NO. NO DEEP BREATHS. *gasp*

Alain is definitively my guy... I want to be like Alain in my next life.

With that being said, if he doesn't respond soon to my questions of his claims of "Bullshit" ...

... then I will have no other choice than to negate his claims of "Bullshit" with my own emphatically stated claim of "Bullshit-Bullshit" :lol:

Damn it, I thought you were Alain. I forgot that's Burn-E, and I just slammed him in my rage-post LOL.

Yes, I am one of THOSE people. :lol:

I merely did three Google searches on the specific questions you asked Darnell where it was clear you were making an uninformed assumption (which all of the media has done as well). The top links in each search provided the information I shared with you. That's how hard it was.

I called BS on your whole claim that racism is about how someone feels in reaction to another person's treatment of them. I'm sorry, but that's just like my wife saying to me that when I act a certain way it conjures up images of her father and I'm being just like her father (not a good thing in this case). I can't control the emotional damage you have incurred in your lifetime. I don't know the demons that haunt you. In her case, I've earned the benefit of the doubt that she should see, I am not her father and have no ill intentions toward her.

But racism is about ill intentioned treatment of another person that is motivated by hatred of a specific culture or color of skin. If my actions are not motivated by those factors and I don't use racist language then you can't call me racist just because I treat you poorly. I may just be a jerk. I may not like the color of your shirt. Or I may just be an equal opportunity offender like our friend Pat.

Finally, we agree on this Darnell, there was no civil rights violation in the Zimmerman v. Martin conflict.

But I disagree that "this case" is drenched in racism.

By case, I mean the actual legal argument that happened in the State of Florida vs. George Zimmerman and the facts that the lawyers, jurors and judge reviewed.

If by case you mean the whole media circus that has blown up around the legal case, then we do agree, that is DRENCHED in racism. :lol:

Dude... seriously... you're arguing with me over how I chose to used the term "people of color"?

Even after I've insisted twice that I was not limiting that term to the "black man"??

Even after I gave you examples of other racial demographics who my statements might have applied to???

Alain,

this, right here, is a prime example of why it's so difficult to have a serious dialog about race in America...

A) rmorse you appear to be thinking only in terms of "Black and White"

B) rmorse you don't appear to be exchanging dialog with me with the intent to understand the point that I'm making... instead you appear to be exchanging dialog with me with the intent to "prove" your point.

BTW, I thought that we had sort of moved beyond the Trayvon Martin trial and were now having a more general discussing racial issues in America. And if so, then by default we are talking about more than just one demographic suffering from racial biases.

rmorse, You do realize that blacks aren't the only group subject to racial biases, don't you?

Damn it, I thought you were Alain. I forgot that's Burn-E, and I just slammed him in my rage-post LOL.

OK. Ignore my last post... we seem to be on the same page now.

Supreme Court Justice Potter Steward once said "I don't know what porn is, but I'll know it when I see it." I think that his statement applies to your wife's feelings when you act a certain way. Even though you can't control the emotional demons from her past, you appear to care enough about her to try to limit the type of behavior that she associates with negative things done by her dad. To me, that same logic applies to racism.

What about unconscious acts of racism. Do you think that someone can be an unconscious racist?

Ok. we agree on this point. :tup::tup:

Yeah, I am sure if he was beating one of your loved ones heads into the pavement I am sure you would feel exactly the same way. But then again, liberals are usually so far removed from the real world that who knows. You might be one of those fellas that goes to prison and visits him after he murdered your kids. You might even adopt him. This trial has made me grow to hate trayvon as much as you have grown to hate GZ. Not because he was black but because he was a worthless thug and as such will be a martyr for the liberal mindset for years to come. Open letter to GZ, if you come to Georgia, beers are on me.

Because he's racist.

LOL. Your mother and sister are probably a little safer in this world because of his "racist" actions.

Because the cards finally fell they way they were dealt for once and the liberals are going all "Leave Brittany Alone" about it. The implosion is awesome.

Not only that, but some of us have grown up in areas where we might be white, but we are the minority and have caught plenty of flak from being white.
