Because he's racist.

To the person who -1 that.... you're either an idiot or you have no sense of humor.

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

Lol, I was being facetious... I don't think he was a racist. I think he was a wanna-be cop who killed a wanna-be gangster.

You realize not all of us are white. :arob:

I am aware of that Alain, I'm not as stupid as you may think.

And I live in one of the most racially divided cities on the US..I am well aware of the whole "whites as minorities" side too.

I'm Out of this discussion ( never should have said anything in the forst place) Unless you know me on a day to day basis my opinions will never be understood so I'll stay out.

YEA! White guys don't have a race, so they can't talk about it!

And talking about it does what?

before i respond. are you directing those comments to me in a personal way

Really? SO a reply with a quote from anyone other than a moderator is a personal attack? Will I get a trial with a jury of my peers or will the liberals just find this a hate crime?

Buncha white ass dudes arguing about race.

Did you mean crackers? ;)

Lol, I was being facetious... I don't think he was a racist. I think he was a wanna-be cop who killed a wanna-be gangster.

I think he wanted to live in a crime free neighborhood and started the ball rolling in that direction. They should erect a statue in his honor. lol

No, curious if you were coming at me bro.

You've been acting hard to some of my posts and repping me down.

One time and that was purely a "stand my ground" event.. ;)

Yea! Black people don't have ethnicity, so they can't talk about it!

I am glad we cleared this up..

Lol, I'm assuming this is in response to my comment that Hispanic isn't a race but an ethnicity? I never said either couldn't talk about it....

Ah Mike, why so serious?

You poked fun and I poked back.

Talking about it builds understanding both of your own perspective and that of those around you. The big problem with race is that there are too many people talking AT the issue and not enough conversing with each other.

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...

Wow... just wow.

Gary, I just finished re-watching that zonation video that you posted a couple of pages back,(the one that I +1'd you for) and it struck me that the behavior that he described at the 1:54 mark is apparently the same behavior that TM's dad was doing.

They described the community that dad lived in as middle class, so it seems that the dad was a middle class guy, more than likely possessing middle class values.Then I thought about the fact that he and TM's mom were divorced, and that it was entirely possibly, and highly probable, that TM was sent to his dad's to get "straightened out" after being suspended from school.

Which lead me to conclude that TM's dad seems to be an average guy who was dealing with what he considered was a rebellious teen.

All of that made me wonder this...

Knowing what you know and feeling how you feel now...

What advice would you give to the next middle class black dude struggling with a rebellious male teen?

How would you tell them to instruct their son to handle the situation if/when that son was accused of WWB* in the middle class community of Warner-Robins, Ga?

*walking while black

edit: what advise would any of you guy provide?

What does every black mother tell her black son as he grows up?

1. Be polite, especially to the police

2. Avoid confrontation

3. Always keep your hands in sight

4. Don't run

5. How you dress and how you talk has a direct impact on how people around you perceive you

6. Life isn't fair

Quoting Donna Britt:

Never be cocky or make any fast moves with a cop. Never fight if it is possible to walk away. Know that your manhood is defined not by what’s in your pants or on your back, but by the responsibility and self-respect in your heart. Watch where you are, and who you’re with.

Remember, anybody can have a gun.

That is the shooting in a nutshell. Two guys in a dick measuring contest and not wanting to back down. And one died over it.
