And nor do I yet there seems to be a great deal of tolarance for blatently hypocritical cries of racism

Who is saying that here? I'm pretty sure those who think Zimmerman should have gone to prison think he was guilty to one degree or another. Is anyone calling for an extra-judicial execution? Didn't notice but I haven't read every page of the thread.

I am not Trayvon Martin.

I am a 40 year old white woman. I have only been pulled over for traffic violations, and even though I broke the law it was easy to play the goofy girl card and get off with a warning. I was caught shoplifting twice as a teenager, but my tears helped me escape those situations. I have never been arrested, handcuffed, or seen the inside of a jail. I have never been bothered when walking on the street at night. I have roamed Los Angeles at age 17 and never encounted a single issue. I have left my house in the dead of night to fetch desperately needed junk food and raised no suspicions. I feel no fear of police officers. I feel no fear for my white children should they encounter police officers. I feel no fear if I wear a hoodie. I am an American citizen of privilege with acceptable white skin. And even though I was raised by a single mother on welfare for several years, and later reconnected with my alcoholic/drug addict father, I am viewed as intelligent, witty, charming, and lovely. When I wear baggy clothes, I am relaxing. If I speak in slang, I am being funny. When I was on state assistance to give birth to my daughter, I was making use of the system then quickly getting on my feet again. I am treated like a human being while I watch people next to me, with darker skin, get treated like animals.

How do we fix this? What can I do? I want to do more. I want to fight harder!

This and gay marriage in the US have demonstrated something to me: Canadians that live in Canada are very worked up over what happens in the US...almost more so than what happens in their country.

I have no doubt this is the case. The problem is that they only "think" he's guilty, because there's very little evidence to support his guilt. And the reason they "think" he's guilty is because of his skin color.

Speaking of gay, did the girlfriend really say that she told Trayvon that the creepyasscracka might be a rapist out looking for boys? That's some good constructive advice she gave her friend, and it may explain how Martin and Zimmerman got into a fight.

Something to that effect. That interview was astoundingly bad. Pierce proved to be the complete moron I always was thought he was. His guest made barely any sense at all and he's sitting there smiling and nodding like he's speaking to a noble laureate.

Apparently this is true and no doubt the very example of perspicuity that made the kind gentleman offer her a full ride to the HBCU of her choice.

She also said that when he said "cracker," she understood him to mean a police officer or security guard. But why would anyone believe anything she says?

I still think the most likely explanation for her decision not to come forward is that she egged him on to attack Zimmerman.

No, but that makes their initial premise all the more comical.

Do you find this to be as polorized as it is here or are they more of a common opinion . The amount of stupidity being displayed by both side on this issue is truly mind boggling . Racists accusing racists of racism . Everyone is racist to a certain extent only a blind fool dosen't see that but the deniers appear to be the worst offenders of all

Only one side, the loony leftwing, really seems to care and they all sound like the idiots on DU. Keep in mind, this is not about events in their country but rather events in the US. I think they feel the Human Rights Tribunal might arrest them if they comment on Canadian happenings with such vehemence.
