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.
Tagging a door, an unsubstantiated claim , and some remarks on twitter are nothing compared to assault on a police officer and multiple domestic violence cases and restraining orders.

What I'll never understand is why some of these murders get so much coverage. People get murdered everyday, but for some reason the public and the media like to pick out one or two every year and put them in the spotlight. A murder is a murder, and I've heard of some innocent guy being shot before. It seems stupid to me to put the spotlight on a single murder out of thousands a year.

I do think they like to pick the most "salacious" -- this one definitely fits. You have all kinds of people riled up about this story. More concerned about it than what's happening inside their government.

I mean, I see the pattern, but it's still stupid to me. Especially when people start trying to make broad points off of these individual highly publicized cases. Like using the senator who got shot as a reason to outlaw fire arms. It's like pointing to an individual plane crash and screaming for the production of all planes to cease.
That is pretty much my point. If you want to talk about crime, why are you talking about an individual crime instead of patterns that actually have an impact?

His mom is Peruvian and his dad is actually a Hassidic Jew.

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?
