actually i'd be pretty satisfied with him being arrested and charged with murder but don't let that get in the way of that nice straw man you're building

he didn't get arrested because either the police are racist, his daddy is a retired magistrate, or the DA is incompetent. it's not due to lack of evidence or motive.

The strawman is the fact you're making Zimmerman out to be a racist first and foremost. Nothing in his background has shown he has a history of racism. NBC is getting called to the carpet for manufacturing a racist sounding 911 call and even being called out by Mother Jones on it. Let's burn all the strawmen before we start deciding guilt or innocence.

um he called the police because he saw a black kid walking down the street, telling them that "they always get away"

he followed him down the street and shot him to death because he was suspiciously black

nope, not racist, nothing to see here folks

NBC's version of the call sounded like this:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

But as Fox News and NewsBusters discovered, the actual conversation went like this:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.

Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?

Zimmerman: He looks black.

No...he called because he thought he was up to no good. NBC editted the 911 conversation to make it sound like he questioned his intentions because he looks black.

Nothing Zimmerman said suggested he was questioning his intentions BECAUSE he was black. Only people like you and people that believe the crap NBC editted to make it sound like it. Nifong v2.0 again

Little "fact" that you are conventiently omitting because it does not support your bias....the reason that he said that he looked black was BECAUSE the 911 operator asked him if the individual was white or black or Hispanic. He answered their question...that is all.

Is Zimmerman racist? Don't know....don't know the guy. But, him saying the guy looked black in response to the 911 operators question is in NO WAY evidence that he is.

On this board calling a white person racist is worse than killing an innocent black child in cold blood. Some people are perfectly with that. If every black kid in America got shot dead, they wouldnt blink, just sigh and say good riddance to the thugs.

Another blatantly racist post brought to you by KT.

You do realize that EVERY sentence in your post is evidence that you are 100% racist....don't you?

Madhatter, you're the one in here looking to justify the murder and coverup of a black kid. Your biggest concern is that a murderer isnt unfairly called a racist. You have no problem with white folks killing off innocent blacks. And will defend them no matter what. Madhatter sees no humanity in black people. If aliens came down from earth and killed us all of he'd feel safe. We got more reaction from you when a pit bull is killed. I wouldnt feel safe having my kids around you.

Black kids ARE getting shot dead every day and Al Sharpton/Jesse Jackson sigh and shrug their shoulders.

KT, the ONLY thing you can see is the color of the skin for Zimmerman and Martin. Love how you keep talking about a "white man" killing a "black kid", when Zimmerman is in fact Hispanic. But then again, that does not bode well for your sad biases and arguement.

I am not defending whether Zimmerman is a racist or not. He could very well be HUGE racist. My comment is that his statement was answering a 911 operators question....and nothing more.

As for the shooting itself....neither you nor I know what happened with the confrontation. I am smart enough to say so....while you are ignorant enough to try and pass your racists biases and crap off as fact.

Do I think that Zimmerman's over reations lead to Martin's death? Yes.

Do I think that the Zimmerman went out and "hunted" down Martin to kill him? No

Do I think he should be charged and a trial had to sort the evidence out? Yes

at this point I think that his use of a racial slur and his talking about "they always get away" etc is more indicative of his thoughts on Martin than him saying he is black. I think that Zimmerman fell victim to his own prejudices.
