white guy gets killed out of racism "Don't even bother counting, happens all the time and no one cares"

black guy killed out of racism "THIS IS ******* RIDICULOUS! WHITE PEOPLE ARE ******* RACIST, WE NEED ANOTHER CIVIL MOVEMENT!"

this world is ****** up.

The thing is, when a black man kills someone they are arrested in the spot. A guy like Zimmerman kills someone and we need a giant case just to try to get him arrested, and it still doesn't work.

i dont really hear of either of these happening often, im pretty sure its a big deal either way. Also, the KKK have probably killed more black people on their own than blacks as a whole have killed due to racial prejudice. I mean theyre a ******* huge group whose sole purpose was to terrorize and oppress black people, you dont hear about any kind of organization like that for blacks. maybe the black panthers but they dont really kill anybody or exist anymore.
#78 to #14 - anon (07/16/2013) [-]
Dude, white guys kill black guys all the time too. The thing about this case was how it was originally handled that made people pissy. The rest is just assholes being assholes:/ But that doesn't mean that black people are now some super OMG EVERYONE CARES ABOUT BLACKS **** WHITE HUH HUH kind of thing. It's just one of those cases that got a lot of light for no reason. Remeber Casey Anothny? Kids die all the time, but that **** was publicized to a crazy extent. Sometimes it's just like they put the names of different murder cases in a hat and then the media picks one to make into a HUGE deal.
#449 to #78 - anon (07/21/2013) [-]
Yeah but the difference is that these two people (Casey and George) supposedly committed a crime in which they were acquitted of but in George's case everybody on the ethnic block thinks that they deserve more justice than everybody else. In the process of their protest they escalated to violence and hurting innocent folk. While in Casey's case everybody was just mad she got off but didn't go out hurting kids or burning orphanges because "she got to kill one"

Trayvon isn't a rallying cry, he's not your brother, he's some kid who made the choices he was comfortable with, sadly they weren't choices that allowed him to live his life to the fullest, but we can't blame George for wanting to live his life to the fullest.
User avatar #46 to #14 - ugottanked (07/16/2013) [-]
but the thing is, he wasnt really killed out of racism

Trayvon has been known to cause fights and supposedly his last victim "wasnt bloody enough"
the zim zam thought he was the house burgler (multiple break ins in the neighborhood) so he decided to follow him, and Trayvon decided to attack, and when he supposedly tried to get Zim Zams gun, Zim Zam grabbed it first and shot in self defence

in an audio file, you can hear him screaming "Help me!" over and over again because of how much Trayvon is beating him, so he did this purely out of self defence

Am I one of the only ones that really, deep down, just does not give a 			****		 about the whole Trayvon Martin thing?    
   
It sucks that a kid got shot, but you know what else sucks? This same 			*******		 thing happening all over the country all the time. Trayvon was not the only person shot to death in 2012. If you're gonna make this big a deal about one case of someone getting shot, then start making a bigger deal about the rest of the hundreds of gun deaths that happen every 			*******		 year.

Stop spouting what some dumbass told you and look up your facts. Guns account for about 60% of homicides.

www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2011/crime-in-the-u.s.-2011/tables/expanded-homicide-data-table-8

Does this mean guns should be banned? No. In Switzerland EVERYONE HAS A GUN and the gun violence rate is one of the lowest in the world. If everyone has and is trained to use a gun, no one really wants to start fights.

Of course you're not. Most of everyone should not care. People are killed out of cold blood every day and most people don't give a **** , so why is this case of self defense anything important? Well, it's because a bunch of ignorant morons decided to take offense to it.

George Zimmerman is HISPANIC. Everyone going on about how the "white man" killed the "innocent" black prince is ******* arrogant. I live ten minutes from where all this **** happened...Sanford is not known for having brave upstanding black youth. It is where you go in my county if you want to buy crack and get stabbed by some ************* for your pocket change, When I was about 10 some ****** went into a Dollar General and shot an elderly white woman in the face and it didn't even get local news only a mention in the paper. **** anyone talking about how the kid was brave or innocent...He lost his life and that blows, but that doesn't mean he is innocent and in my state a person has a right to defend their life.
#406 to #85 - torule (07/16/2013) [-]
Hispanic, white, and asian people are all capable of racial profiling. The issue over the verdict is derived from the fact that when an average black person is suspected of a crime, the whole "if there"s even a little bit of doubt, one cannot be convicted" is not stressed as much. Look at the infamous Casey Anthony case. Our entire judicial system employs racial profiling, as Zimmerman did that fatal night. The confrontation would not have occurred if he had listened to the emergency personel whom he had called, as they said to stop falling them.
User avatar #424 to #406 - rattara (07/16/2013) [-]
I know anybody can profile someone. And if Darkie McMartyr wouldn't have assaulted Zim Zam it never would have happened allegedly . And if they would have gone for manslaughter they may have convicted him. Also Casey Anthony couldn't be convicted of murder because they couldn't prove it, if they went for child neglect they would have got the conviction on that too. But people want their form of "justice" more than they want to give a fair trial, and that's not how any homicide trial works.
#435 to #424 - torule (07/16/2013) [-]
Martin also has rights, and if somebody was following you, wouldn't you be more than scared too? Zimmerman started the situation clearly, but who started the physical confrontation is up for debate. And yes, by going for a lesser charge, they might have gotten a better result in both cases. But it brings up the fact that more African Americans are being incarcerated every day with harsh sentences for crimes that they allegedly committed despite "significant doubt." There was a black man in Alabama, i believe, who was sentenced in death despite incredible amounts of speculation on whether he committed a murder. However, Zimmerman was set free in a similar scenario. Race is a huge part of the verdict, but not in the form of racism, but racial profiling which is different.
User avatar #436 to #435 - rattara (07/16/2013) [-]
But the "white man" keeping them down isn't nearly relevant enough here IMO but I do see what you're saying.
#208 to #85 - anon (07/16/2013) [-]
If your walking down the street at night in a bad nieghborhood and notice a car is following you, wouldn't you be scared? Especially when the person continues to follow, then proceeds to get out of the car and approach you- armed with a gun?

idk about you but I'd be scared for my life. George Z killed the only other person who knows exactly what happened last night, and he was able to walk away cause of it.

Just because Trayvon was a wanna-be thug poser kid doesn't make him a criminal. It doesn't mean he deserved to die. It shows hes a teenager. Just like all the other little ***** . I like how kids can be shot up in a school and its a tradedy but when a young black "druggie" (who only smokes weed... which 90% of high school kids do) gets killed, it was his fault for being profiled, followed, scared, and defended himself.
User avatar #367 to #208 - rattara (07/16/2013) [-]
That was the area Martin frequented, If you were scared of the car or the person in it would you run to confront/attack them or keep on walking?

something about OP's post should inherently piss people off. It's meant to. Looking at these two people being compared and then down at the comments, you have to think to yourself "sure, MLK had a few at home issues but this isn't about that. In fact, let's ignore that for Trayvon too".   
MLK actively went out to try to make a difference and change something in society for the better.

I hate two things about this whole case. first that the media and even the president turned this into some national news racist trial garbage. and that now everyone is trying to blame and "boycott" places (mostly Florida) with a "stand your ground" law, when this doesn't even fall under the stand your ground law in the first place, it was SELF DEFENSE...the verdict was already decided, so even if the stand your ground law wasn't enacted in Florida when he shot him, it was still justified.

Stop the racist ******** , stop being ignorant of the laws and for the love of all that is holy stop listening to the media. :/

I've just given up on TV and just use the internet and credible sources who like presenting facts (the facts that are either blocked or manipulated by the "mainstream media"(I hate that term)). I just happen to live with people who still use the Tv for news and either come to me about something like it's actually breaking news and I already heard about it 3 days before or they listen to the twisted crap and I have to set them straight all the time... :/

If there's one thing I hate, it's people who take something that nobody thought was racist in anyway and bring it upon themselves to make it seem extremely racist. In my opinion, they're the true racist when they do that. I hate how this trial turned into that almost as much as I hate how Sandy Hook turned into a gun debate.

I thought the idea of the london riots were pretty cool; sorry but I'm a huge fan of mass rebellious gatherings of such. With the Zimmerman situation I believe how it was handled. I don't know the exact conflict between Zimmerman and Trayvon, but I feel like there could have been another way to handle it rather than shooting Trayvon.

Well i keep hearing different opinions about the case, I actually want to know what happened, some are saying Martin had the right of self defence but so did Zimmerman. Murders like this happen all the time, people are saying Martin wasn't doing anything wrong, others say he was. I just feel that the race card shouldn't be thrown out there, How many white people are murdered by blacks? No one knows because it happens so often, So when a white/Latino man murders a black man it's a big race issue, I am not saying Zimmerman didn't do anything wrong, he did kill the kid, If some kid i didn't know was wandering my neibourhood at night i would be suspicious of him as well, but i would have asked him what he was doing here?, Zimmerman could have done the act in self defence, but in Martins case if some dude was following you, wouldn't you want to either fight back or get out of there? I lack the news on what actually happened. Zimmerman had no right to take another life, but people shouldn't use this as an excuse to cause riots and chaos. What this world actually needs, is everyone to stop the fighting on colour of skin, because at the end of the day every man regardless of race will rest in their own bed if they got one. We the people should stop fighting with ourselves and fight the back the oppressing government with peace and love. No more violence people. I may get thumbed down but i don't care. Understand that i may not know anyone on this site but I love you all

Martin initially ran away from zimmerman, zimmerman was waiting for police when martin came back and attacked him, if he was really that terrified why would he come back to the guy and start smashing his head in?
User avatar #183 to #182 - LinkinParkFan (07/16/2013) [-]
Again as i said i lacked the info on what actually happened, if that being the case Zimmerman had the right of self defence but maybe he should have not been so vigilant and just wait for the police, maybe then Trayvon wouldn't have retaliated and he would be alive today.
#191 to #183 - anon (07/16/2013) [-]
Zimmerman stopped pursuing martin after the police dispatcher told him "We don't need you to do that" Zimmerman went to where the dispatcher said police would meet him and martin came up behind him and attacked him.
