It's stupid, but the thing is, n!ggas get killed everyday over much more stupid shit and nothing is said.

It isn't like this is some new phenomenon. N!ggas have been getting slain over nonsense for centuries now.

Zimmerman didn't walk up to him, unholster his gun and shoot him while standing. Zimmerman shot him while pinned on his back, getting assaulted by Trayvon. It was a last resort move, and likely the right one in that scenario.
So I can follow u at night and when u start running I chase u and then ask u Wat u doing here. U wouldn't be the least suspsions of a guy chasing u at night because u got some skittles

I live in the hood basically and most kids I now wouldn't answer to wat u doing here. Especially if they not doing anything including me. It would be something ***** who the **** is u or man Gtfo my face or dont worry about it. Zimmerman probably made another comment and kid probably started beating his ass. Shit like that happen where I live all the time, but it ends with people getting ****ed up instead of shot.

All we know is...
  1. Zimmerman suffered injuries from the fight.
  2. Zimmerman was pinned on his back with Trayvon on top of him. (Grass and wetness on the back of his shirt, eye witness John confirmed)
  3. Zimmerman's statement that he was attacked by Trayvon as he tried to return to his SUV
  4. Witness John's statement that Trayvon initiated the fight
3rd statement is horseshit. He was not returning to his car.

Because other bad incidents have gone on you're ok with allowing it to continue?

SO we should sweep this under the rug since it's been happening for years?

Did the killers of said n!ggas admit to the homicide, then proceed to walk free?

I'm not saying it's right nor am I trying to justify it. I'm just saying people are outraged over this kind of shit like it's new. There are millions of stupid/prejudice white people in this country, who have been doing shit like this for centuries.

Basically what I'm saying is that there is no real solution. Yeah it's nice to show support but signing petitions, twitpicking yourself in a black hoodie and LIKING Facebook status updates saying "R.I.P. Trayvon Martin" isn't gonna do shit. This is a problem that can't be solved through the legal system. This is an issue that implanted within the human psyche.

Send the n!gga to jail. Hell, put him on death row. But what's to stop this from happening again? What's to stop this mentality from ruining the life of someone else in a different manner? I'm just speaking from an observational point of view, not a progressive one.

It's bringing attention the situation. If we as a people took your stance it would be worse. The best course of action we have is to put these issues in a public forum and call for the court of public opinion to make America act. People in other countries notice the stark hypocrisy of what we supposedly stand for and when that happens we have to clean things up. It might be a short term solution, but it is better than nothing.


This publicity will make sure that these things don't happen again in that neighborhood for the forseeable future and that counts for something.

Idk, maybe I did a bad job of explaining myself. I'm not saying we should take the "shut up and deal with it. Yes boss" approach. Because you're right, if we took that position then we would be much worse off.

I mean like I'm kind of disgusted with the ignorance of some people who act like this kind of situation is something new, like blatant prejudice doesn't still affect black people (particularly the media). Like I said, n!ggas get shot and killed for reasons this asinine if not more so, but for some reason, this story blows up. I mean it's good to bring light to this situation to educate said people, but it's a much deeper issue than what's being lead on.

I guess I just have a cynical approach to things like this. I look at they way things are configured to be no different in essence than they were hundreds of years ago. The means of subjugation only differ in the medium through which they are applied.

What Rad is sayin is why are people overhyping this when innocent kids die everyday.

But here's my belief on this: the feds should take over which they are, thought about it cuz of NUMB3RS lol, then read on here they are. And I believe if he gets arrested or not, god is gonna punish the hell outta him when he does die. I also believe he should get the death penalty cuz I believe if u kill someone u should die as well UNLESS it was self defense which clearly in this case it wasnt.
