So I'm on YouTube checking out the trending videos. And I came along the new one of a girl attacking another girl in a soccer game. They happened to be two different races, but what gets me is all the comments. I mean people are just saying the most insane racial stuff back and forth to each other. It's 2012 can we not get over all this!? What I took away from the video was the difference in male vs female sports. The girls team mates didn't even help her. If this was a boys game it would have turned into a bench clearing brawl. But again people just jump at the chance to make it a race thing. Honestly I don't get how people come up with the time and energy to be so angry towards someone because of the color of their skin. Maybe I'm the minority in this situation by the comments I read on you tube I sure feel like it. I honestly believe that everyone should do a little time in the military. That's a sure cure for racism. Trust me when bullets start flying I can promise you one thing the color of the man fighting next to you won't matter.
Have you heard about the Treyvon Martin Killing in FL?
Yup, I'm waiting for all the facts to come out before I make and judgments. I have gone back and forth on it. But again the media is feeding racism. By saying Zimmerman is white when he is Hispanic. Just to make it a white vs black thing when it's unnecessary. It's a murder case race doesn't always have to be the biggest factor.
Ok so we don't have all the facts first off this guy was no pillar of the community he has a criminal record. Does he deserve to be shot. No. But if what I hear is true and this kid attacked him and was trying to get his gun he got what he deserved. Everybody in America has the luxury of sitting in there safe and comfortable living room and holler about race or the fact he was not armed. That is such a crock a unarmed man can become armed in a matter of seconds. I have a little experience being alone in a dark and scary place and being confronted by some not so nice people and unless you have been in that kind of situation you can't really understand. I find it hard to believe this guy used deadly force because he was wearing a hood. In the end I am sure this was a righteous shoot because in the end if someone tries to disarm you its gonna be you or him going home at the end of the day. You better be ready to make that call.

Ill bet if it was a white kid shot by a black guy al sharpton wouldnt be saying a word and it would have never been on the front page. What would happen if the kkk was protesting it? Yet the black panthers are waging race wars over the trayvon case. It is rediculous that race even even an issue. The saddest part is that there is no way a fair trial will take place and someones kid is still dead. Hes going to his grave as a victim of racial violence when thats not the case at all. This case is sad on so many levels. I got one even better. A white couple i their late 70s were attacked when a black young man broke in their house. After beating the husband unconsious he sexually assaulted the wife and beat her. She died. The husband is in critical condition. Now they were married 65 years. The husband was a decorated war veteran and both were church going good all around folks in the community. Didbya hear about this? It just happened a couple weeks ago. Of course you didnt hear about it. Its cause the media didnt want you to. Do you see white groups rallying and protesting? Nope. Is al sharpton stepping up to apoligizebto the community for what happened? Nope. So sad
So you'd rather make it a sex thing rather than a race thing???
Come on man...
Lol yes! That's what took away from it. I think the conversation and debates over Differences in male and female sports. Would be conducted in a civilized manner rather then having people just calling each other every racial slur they can think of.
And not to mention it would be a lot more light hearted then a race war on you tube.
If they stop playing the race card, they won't be given special treatment anymore, and they can't have that. I mean, it'd suck for all for us to be treated equally! I've seen people twist some of the most harmless stuff into something that's supposedly racist.
"Special Interest Groups" are fancy names for people with special agendas. Part of those agendas is making money so the group can grow and the leaders can get rich. That's where Jesse Jackson and Sharpton are at and why they are so quick to stir the pot.
Kid on kid issues is a 50/50 society/crappy parenting issue. Parents in modern society are so worried about how society views them that they are quick to throw anyone under the bus to save face. example: talk to a school teacher about the numebr fo confrontation parents charge into their schools demanding their children are innocent or not recieving their just dues. On the other hand, society is quick to name a parent as bad because fo their circumstances.
The Martin case. From what I have seen, a man followed a kid through his neighborhood while acting as a neighborhood watch captain (that's what they do). The man called 911 for assistance (that's what neighborhood watch captain's do). Reports from Zimmerman's father states George has cuts on his head and a broken nose resulting from an attack by Martin. There has been zero reports that Zimmerman ever physically touched Martin to cause Martin to act in a manner known by any court as self defense. Police have investigated and took Zimmerman into custody. Zimmerman was released. Now if anyone has information that contradicts any of this, please pm it to me.
If a person knocked me down, punched me in the face and I was armed. By the Pennsylvania Castle Doctrine, I could use lethal force to defend myself from bodily harm(because I can not retreat). Obviously, if I am knocked on the ground, I can not retreat. If someone beats me on the face (especially to the point of drawing blood and a broken nose), I have every right to think my life could be in danger. Unless someone proves this was not the case, I fully support Zimmerman's actions and would have done the same in his position.
Suzuki, you're forgetting the part where the 911 operator told Zimmerman to break off the pursuit and he kept following Martin anyway. On the surface, at least, that sounds like he sought out the conflict that led to the shooting. Of course, none of us know all the facts, so we really should reserve judgment and let the legal system do its job. I agree that it's sad that the media feels the need to choose sides and spin things, rather than simply reporting the facts. If Zimmerman is telling the truth, then yes, it was a "good" shoot, but it also may be that Martin was guilty of walking while being black/wearing a hoodie. Hopefully the truth can be found in the end.
