killing Trayvon - Page 367

post #5491 of 6250

When they said they wanted a national conversation on race, that's not what they meant.

It comes as Edwards, who has been charged with first-degree murder, posted racist tweets saying he hated white people in the months before the shooting.

Edwards posted statements on his Twitter feed including a comment on April 29 where he tweeted "90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM".

Edwards also weighed when George Zimmerman was acquitted over the death of Trayvon Martin.

"Ayeee I knocced out 5 woods since Zimmerman court!smile.gif lol sh*t ima keep sleepin sh*t! #ayeeee."

"Woods" is derogatory slang for white people. The feed also contains tweets glorifying violence, guns and gangs.

The term "woods" is derogatory slang for white folks? That sounds retarded...sir.

Peckerwoods--it's old as dirt. Similar meaning to redneck or hillbilly--basically, white trash.

I thought WOODS was an Aryan Nation term - Whites Only One Day Soon. When did the blacks co-opt it?

I guess my ability to convey sarcasm is slipping...

It's so sad when that starts to happen. ^ It's like watching Willie Mays or Steve Carlton hang on too long.

Another terrible story in the headlines today - WWII veteran dies from injuries after being randomly beaten by two black teens...

This thread really shouldn't become the "who are the negroes killing today" thread. It's distasteful and irrelevant to the subject.

+1.

They're welcome to head over to StormFront if they want to blog about how awful the Negroes are.

isn't it quite relevant?

Thread basically morphed into a discussion on race in general, specifically the dishonesty and disparity in how these crimes are covered. Whether we're talking about the Trayvon Martin shooting or the other examples in the thread, it is the same concept - and certainly not limited to blacks.

I think the random shooting of the Australian baseball player by a teen who specifically cited the Zimmerman verdict as a reason for his violence against whites is definitely relevant here. If you want to post the recent stories of the two white teens who shot a black baby in the face while it was being pushed in a stroller by its mother, or the two white teens that beat a black WWII vet to death, etc.,I will gladly provide equally harsh criticism of those crimes.

I think what we don't need is some running thread that people just dump examples of "black people killing white people." Nothing good comes from that. If there's a case that's actually newsworthy or has discussion value (the killing of the Aussie kid is interesting because of the Trayvon connection along with the sheer sociopathy), that's worth posting. The random news links are just thinly veiled race-baiting. Post statistics if you really want to have that conversation.

Actually I think it came out that the parents killed that baby.

You can use the tweets to shoehorn the Lane shooting, I suppose. It's a bit more complicated, though, considering that one of the kids was white and one was half white. Sounds to me like a kid talking shit on Twitter but whatever.

Bringing in the WWII vet case, though, really adds nothing. You want to start the "black people be killin'" thread, then start it.

It's distasteful and useless, but it is perfectly relevant. The thread has always been about the responses of society and the media to interracial killings, the ease with which people target others of different races because of their innate racism and the motives that might spur them on, and never about the killing itself. These seem well within scope of the thread, as much as, at the same time, they don't seem interesting or worth discussing.
