    the man is right!


    Take this fight somewhere else. Jeez. (Im talking to the people fighting over the comments, not the whole Trayvon Martin case).


    Take this fight somewhere else. Jeez.


    @Steffan: I suspect Mimi is white because her point of empathy originates from shared motherhood (see her last paragraph). Otherwise she would have said, that she relates with the victim as a fellow black person like Obama did.

    I am now fascinated at how many scandanavians there are on this story comments. Also, do Swedes care enough about this story to check back for follow up comments? Fredrich & Steffan, wouldnt happen to be the same troll I just busted on the other story???


    @mimi- I'm guessing you and your people are far frOm being accountable for crime in general. Actually- I have contacted many Journalist lately - asking why there is not more coverage on Black on White Crime! Their standard answer - It's not News- its commonplace! Tell me one case where a Black on White Crime was tried as a Race Crime! Just one? Until your race can become accountable you will struggle! False blame? Sure- haven't you heard- the Prisons are full of innocent people! until you can call your own out/ no one will listen to you!


    Lets get afew things straight. This case is manifestly different from the many contrived stories posted here of "big black men" hurting "poor white people". In those cases, shoddy investigations and decisions not to prosecute were not apparently driven by racial assumptions. In fact for any one of those cases, I bet we could find instances where a crime was wrongly pinned on a black man merely because he was in the vicinity. Authorities are very zealous where theres percieved black on white crime. The reverse simply isnt true.

    For me as a parent, this just boils down to what if this was my child. Would I not atleast expect a trial? Would I not tremble the heavens and the earths until I heard a judge and jury proclaim the truth?


    @ 3 Words. This is the similarity. Black on White Crime is almost as high a number as white on white. The fact that he was arrested doesn't mean shit, The fact that it happens and the fact that the system will not list this as a race crime ( Tyrone) is the HUGE problem. Racists will never call their own out- like you for instance. The only time you have a pause in Black on Black murder is to stop and blame the Whites. The way Blacks have conducted themselves during this HOPEFULLY will leave a lasting impression on whites. Zimmerman case- its has only been the window to the real problem out there.


    The main reason that the media never reports hate crimes against Whites, is because the media is entirely run by Jews, and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that, the Jews are the avowed enemies of the White Race...actually, Zimmerman doesn't have a drop of White blood in his veins, his is half-Jewish,
    half-Peruvian Amerindian...but the media has stoked the fires of this case, to near riot levels, and one thing can be guaranteed, Zimmerman will walk, and there will be subsequent race riots...mark my words...


    This is a response to D.D.'s post.
    The reason you feel "sick in the stomach" is because you are already sick in a certain way in your mind. The only cure is for your to learn to view things objectively and not to over generalize cases there are in different nature. Get well soon!


    @Sci I am so glad you have brought the attention on this crime in Oklahoma. It's a travesty! It should be on the front page of news today!

    The racial problem in this country is growing. A Hoodie March will do nothing to promote and heal anything! WE need a President that is the President of EVERYONE in this country as he assured us he would be. If he was? We'd hear from his mouth more about these black on white crimes. We'd see the "community" marching for the sake of all victims of violence and all injustices. But, we don't. This speaks volumes.
