there'd be no racism if everyone was white

My state just enacted a law that makes everyone... "gender neutral" and I think it's ******* retarded that it's a law. Just respect eachother without prejudice, how ******* hard is that?! apparently so hard it has to be made into a law. :/

It seem to me like alot of the people calling racism or sexism are the ones bringing race and sex into the equation when the topic isn't even related to any of that.

So, disregarding both Trayvon's race and Zim Zam's race...   
I don't see why Zim Zam wasn't charged with anything. I understand he shot out of self defense, but isn't actually killing the kid a bit much? Wouldn't shooting the kid in the knee would have been enough?

I guess he thought Trayvon felt the gun during the struggle. I thought that too, but I guess Zimmerman said during court that it was either Trayvon or himself, someone was gonna use the gun. Might be true, might not, but I'm okay with it.

I think the true problem of the this case is the crazy ass laws in the sunshine state, the problem is that this was legal under the law when it is such a moral and legal grey area.

Florida's self defense law that was used in the Zimmerman case is a mirror image of every other state. If you're talking about stand your ground it didn't apply to the trial.

Because he didn't do anything illegal because evidence didn't support any valid justification for charging him with anything.

The negroids that went crazy for a few days though did not seem to care about the jury's decision though.

Because shooting someone in the leg implies you don't completely fear for your life. Zimmerman would be in jail right now if he had done that.

Why do people say stuff like this? You have a huge artery behind your knee. Shooting him in the knee isn't a big improvement over shooting him in the chest. There's basically no place to aim that can't be fatal. You can try shooting people in the feet or hands, but that too can be fatal.

As far as Zimmerman, he could have shot at Martin's knee, but I'm not sure that would have been any better for Martin than aiming at his chest, and if he did try and fire at Martin's knee, he may have shot himself.

Or maybe it's all context? The first one in my opinion doesn't mention race at all, therefore it's not racist. In the second situation, both statements are gross generalizations but they aren't specifically offensive enough to be called sexist.

TL;DR it's more complex than this post makes it seem, but the overall idea is one i can agree with.

Somewhat on the same topic. I always dislike it when people take MAJOR offense to a joke because it's "Racist" or whatever.

The whole point of humor is to NOT take it seriously. I don't give a **** what the joke is about, or whether or not it touches on a subject I take seriously or not. Jokes are meant to make you laugh, regardless of the subject. If you find it offensive, or don't find it funny, just put up with it.

Sure, take offense if the person MEANS something they said. Or if they're ACTUALLY racist or sexist. But just because you joke about something, doesn't mean you are against or for it. I'll laugh at black jokes, WITH my black friends, and it wont mean I'm a racist.

If you are taking something that's not meant to be take seriously so damn seriously, you're clearly doing life wrong.

racism and sexism won't stop till we stop talking about it....
#120 to #90 - Rascal (07/29/2013) [-]
This is pure gold. Racism happens because people talk about the problems of it. Ok, Einstein. I guess we should start pretending no one gets mistreated or abused and then it'll just go away.
User avatar #107 to #90 - youarenotspecial (07/29/2013) [-]
Not necessarily...It'd be more accurate to say racism and sexism would go away if people would drop all pre-conceived notions about race and sexuality that were spoon fed to them at birth, in addition to not judging people based off of those things. Even a person with nothing but good intentions can hold harmful assumptions because they're considered "truths." But since that won't happen, we have to talk about it.
