    PMwilson, as a black man, it is very sad that Trayvon lost his life, but the facts of the case proved reasonable doubt on Zimmerman’s 2nd degree murder charge, the jury couldn’t even find him guilty of manslaughter with the lack of evidence. Atom is once again right in his assesment of this case. I watched an interview with Larry Elders who is a conservative black talk show host. He was laying out fact after fact about the real problems facing our community, and unfortunately he is being called a sellout and an uncle tom for telling it like it is. The biggest problem we face is our own self destructive nature. I know I went off on a tangent, but this whole case is one big divide and conquer tactic, and thankfully we haven’t seen crazy riots.

  • PMWilson says:

    Wow. I can’t believe what I am hearing.
    Since when did it become acceptable to kill an unarmed, 17 year old child…just because YOU profiled him and YOU harassed him? Trayvon got fed up and threw some punches and took him to the ground. And you think this justifies murder? Jesus Christ man. You people are sick. An incompetent prosecution who allowed for an almost all white jury…is the ONLY reason Zimmerman got away with murder.

  • The man the myth says:

    You are ridiculous. The all white jury was agreed to by the prosectution and the defense, and sorry man, you and I have very differring opinions on this case. All I know is that it had very little to do with race, and look, noone is saying it is acceptable to kill an unarmed man, but the facts of this case proved beyond a reasonable doubt that it was self defense. End of story. At the end of the day GZ will face his creator and answer to the real higher power, not some court of man. The real problem that we face as a collective are black on black violence, and that should be the narrative that Sharpton, Jackson, Holder and Obama should be discussing, but you notice, none of them say a word about it. I feel for Trayvon’s family, but this whole case has been blown way out of proportion. So PMwilson, I am sorry we disagree with this case, but at the end of the day, I really don’t care, Trayvon is dead and he ain’t coming back, and GZ, even if he isn’t in a jail cell, his life is over, he will never have a life again and that is plenty punishment. We need to address real problems, and that is ending black on black violence. For every GZ Trayvon incidents, there are 100 violent black on black deaths.

  • PMWilson says:

    You are wrong on two points.
    1) An incompetent prosecution helped to select an all white jury. MANY prosecutors who were interviewed stated that the case was over right there when an all white jury was selected. Why? Because race matters. You NEVER have an all white jury deciding a case that involves the murder of a black teenager.

    2) You stated that it is wrong to kill an unarmed man. Trayvon was an unarmed teenager. He was not a man. And Zimmerman profiled him and harassed him because he was black. It’s as simple as that.

    Final point. Big respect goes to President Obama during his recent speech where he stated Trayvon could have been me. The Trayvon case is ALL about race whether you choose to believe it or not.

  • The man the myth says:

    Absolutely no respect goes to Obama, the guy along with Eric Holder, Jesse jackson and Al Sharpton are the biggest race baiters I have ever seen. The only thing Obama and Trayvon had in common at that age is their love of trees.
    Like I said, GZ was thrown behind the 8ball from the jump of this case, the media made this case about race, NBC had to retract a story they ran where they edited the 911 tapes to make it sound like he was targeting Treyvon because he was black. The truth is that this case should have been a local story at best, but the media blew this thing way out of proportion, and made it into a national story. As a black man, I have been profiled before and stopped because I was black, it happens and I deal with it, but I don’t go blaming the white man or making it a racial issue because I understand the key factor, and that is that we make up 12 percent of the population, yet we account for 68 percent of the crime in this country and 50 percent of the murders in this country. We are profiled because our community celebrates this idiot thug lifestyle. Half of my high school friends are in jail, not because of they are black, its because they are idiots.
    The bottom line is that this story has been made to fuel the fires of race, and you have bought right into it, and I refuse to play along. We need to come together as a community, and realize that black, white, asian, hispanic, we all bleed red, and we are all part of the human race, until we realize this, the powers that be will continue to play us off one another, and have brother killing brother. Only then can we stop the NSA illegally wiretapping us, we can stop illegal drug running by our CIA that has helped destroy the inner cities. Like Killer Mike said, just like the Bush’s Clinton’s and Obama, just another paid actor telling lies on teleprompter.
    One more thing, I have never seen a president even speak on a local trial in my life, yet here is Obama who hasn’t done a damn thing for our people, who has the audacity to comment on this case. I would tell him to his face to blow it out his ass.
    Sorry for the hostility PM, I don’t mean to come off like a jerk, I just think that there is so much bigger to this than just some hispanic profiling and killing some innocent 17 year old boy.
