I'm not gonna dig up the links, they are in this thread if you want to find them.

The point is your attempts at character assassination are weak. Neither guy involved were angels.

the latino look you're referring to is the one given to us by the media .. the 'tv and movie latino' everyone sees which is the mestizo(white and amerindian) and what zimmerman is .. but there are plenty of latinos who don't look like that
Thank you.

Race - scientific community suggest that the idea of race is often used [5] in a naive[6] or simplistic way. Among humans, race has no taxonomic significance; all living humans belong to the same hominid subspecies, Homo sapiens sapiens.[7][8] Social conceptions and groupings of races vary over time, involving folk taxonomies [9] that define essential types of individuals based on perceived traits. Scientists consider biological essentialism obsolete,[10] and generally discourage racial explanations for collective differentiation in both physical and behavioral traits




I gave you science and the social construct....GZ isn't white by U.S. categorization ..he would be Hispanic or Latino.



you have alot to learn kid.....




next
You're incredibly stupid. You realize that the original Spanish speakers were white, right? Zimmerman is a white Hispanic; not sure why this is so hard for you to grasp.

To say someone looks Hispanic is like saying someone looks American.

Many kids, black, white, hispanic, etc do ridiculous poses like these trying to appear tough. Hell just checking out fb poses we'd identify a large percentage of teens as thugs if poses like this is your criteria.

Now, is it not possible that Trayvon isn't a thug and George isn't a crazed neighborhood watch guy out to stop a suspected criminal at all costs?

@ those picture, remember when Brandon jennings and some other PG(forgot his name) posed as bloods in a pic? does that mean they're real thugs? should I stalk them in the middle of the night but when I'm told no to?

Lol non violent assault? How does that begi to make sense? He put his hands on a law enforcement officer. He has a criminal record. Along with runins with the law. Zimmermans is 10 times the thug martin was.

  1. Gold teeth
  2. Several tattoos
  3. Run-ins and suspensions at school
  4. Romanticization of drugs and violence on his facebook and twitter

But we're supposed to believe that there's no way this "little boy" could have actually attacked Zimmerman, right?

No, I find it hard to believe that the altercation could've happened at 'point F' in your previous post if Zimmerman was walking back to his car as he claimed. Care to tackle that one?

It depends on where Zimmerman ran to, and the route he took back to his truck. If he ran to point E, he could have gone past F if he was going to take the long way back to his truck, hoping he'd find Trayvon. Or it's possible that he didn't run to point E. He could have run south, along the street, and then started returning north on the walkway, where he reached point F.

So basically, he took the long route back when he could've easily made a bee line back to where his car was?

And the bold... does that mean he was still pursuing Trayvon even though the 911 dispatcher clearly told him he should cease and desist?

If that scenario is true, yes. Any of those are possibilities. Him ignoring the operator's commands (which wasn't even a command; "we don't need you to do that") is largely irrelevant though.

WHAT?

If he did in fact ignore the 911 dispatcher and continued to pursue Martin (he already admitted to following him initially) while armed with the conviction that he was one of 'those punks that always get away with it'... that shows he profiled Martin and provoked the attack, even though Martin ran away. Zimmerman continued his pursuit, instigated the conflict at point F, and murdered a teenager.

I would think that's at least 'largely relevant' and the prosecutors agree
