Why is this still a thing?

Because it exposes the double standards of society in regards to races.

Because Marley's death was simple. Someone shot him trying to steal his car.
The Martin/Zimmerman thing was more controversial, the one who shot the gun wasn't trying to commit a crime, he was trying to be Batman.

It still sucks that two 17 year olds got killed.

Has anyone lost any black friends or any overzealous self-righteous lefties on Facebook over the whole debate? I just posted this image on a black's status (just as a small joke at the time) and though she's usually a lovely person, she was very abrasive to me, swore at me continuously, called me a piece of **** , thrown other insults to imply that I'm dumb, racist and uneducated and wrote, " **** YOU AND **** YOUR LIFE" on my wall. Was it really that necessary.

Even tried apologising a couple of times for the awkward bad timing of the joke but also gave my diplomatic and objective view on the matter that the case is tipped more towards his favour. Her swearing and personal insults towards me continued, I swear you just can't have an opposing opinion whatsoever against lefties who go on about freedom of speech an' **** .

She kept using the Zimmerman was racial profiling him (eventhough it had nothing to do with race and was just the fact that he was a dodgy looking outsider wearing a hoody), he had no rights to approach him (he was appointed neighbourhood watchmen) and that he was just a kid (an over 6ft well built 17 year old who's an experienced fighter). My other Facebook friends are turning this into a race issue by comparing other white convicts who got away free and black convicts who were unfairly arrested. 2 words for you lot: OJ Simpson.

MFW people in the comments say "reverse racism".
No, it's just called "racism".

This is everywhere, Im sick of seeing it   
First of all, the Trayvon case got popular because it was a complicated case. There was a whole lot to it. Zimmerman claimed it was self defense, there weren't any main witnesses to see it all, Trayvon was a kid, the police gave Zimmerman his gun back, no one knew who was guilty.   
The Marley case was simple, a kid was shot by a man, and that man was found guilty. It happens a lot.    
Ever heard of Darius Simmons? Probably not. He was a black middle schooler that was shot and killed my an older white man because that older man thought he stole stuff, which it is practically proven that Darius did not. The trial begins next month and no why the media isnt blowing it out of proportion? Because it is obvious that Darius is innocent and that the older man is guilty for shooting a young child. Media sees that story and doesnt want to make it a big deal because it wont spark discussion and debate which gives them viewings and ratings. It's a simple story. So dont say that only white on black violence is popularized because of some conspiracy that the liberal media is trying to make white people look racist.

You know what, **** this. What about my friend, like a little sister Sasha Marsden (just google her name, add England if needs be). She's 16 and was raped, stabbed in the head and neck and then raped while she was dying and when she was dead. Where's the outcry for the cunt who is pleading NOT GUILTY to doing this? ******* makes me mad.

Because the 30 yr old black man was found guilty.

trayvons case didn't make national news because he was black (that just made the coverage by the media continue), it made national news because george zimmerman claimed self deffense against an unarmed kid and by the law he was right due to florida's stand your ground law. it was questioned why the guy who was told by police dispatchers to leave this kid alone, decided to play hero/ wannabe cop and followed this kid with a gun wanting to take the law into his own hands. trayvon probly noticed the weird old man stalking him and questioned what the 						****					 as any teen being chased by an older man would no matter the face. trayvon faced fight or flight and choose to fight. george shot the kid. this was self defense but the actions leading up to the deffense makes it premeditated. yes, the media took notice because he was black but thats not the main reason. stop trying to make everything racist.

I honestly believe Zimmerman was guilty. But he was found not guilty; end of story.

Holy **** , we're still doing this?
TRAYVON WAS SHOT BECAUSE HE ATTACKED GZ AND WAS KILLED IN SELF DEFENCE. THE CASE GAINED ATTENTION BECAUSE GZ WAS NOT ARRESTED AND WAS TREATED EXTREMELY LENIENTLY, AND THEN FAGGOT RETARDS MADE IT ABOUT RACE
MARLEY'S CASE WAS A FAIRLY "STANDARD" MURDER. THERE IS NOTHING EXCEPTIONAL ABOUT IT.

The difference is luck
It was a ******* coincidence.

It's the same ******* reason Nyan Cat became viral. It just ******* happened. The assumption was made that Zimmerman had shot Trayvon because we was black, (paraphrasing) but THE REASON THE STORY BECAME SO BIG, was because of ******* luck.

Black on black violence happens every day
Black on white violence happens every day
White on white violence happens every day
White on black violence happens every day

Same with Middle Easterns, Asians, Latin, Hispanic, Native American.
People ******* kill people every day, do you honestly expect every ******* case to make national news?! This case became so big, because of pure, ******* luck.

Can we all just move the **** on!

BLACK PEOPLE CAN ACTUALLY BE RACIST!!!!!!!!!!!!
they can think, and see people of other races
this is the complete truth
The reason a lot of blacks always call out racism, segregate from everybody else-only associate with Blacks and don’t associate with non Blacks that much, and are very unfriendly in general is to avoid accidentally revealing that they might actually be racist. If Blacks where to show their thoughts all the time just as much as non blacks, integrate and associate with non blacks much more, and be much more nonthieving and ********* , a lot of them might accidentally reveal that they can call out racism and everyone will believe them regardless. people might see that and and really wonder what that was that just happened there and see the connection.
I know this may sound crazy, impossible and unbelievable, BUT IT ISN’T CRAZY WHEN ITS TRUE
You have to spread the message!!!!!
The world has to know about this!!!!!


I got bored, so I didn't do the rest.

This is not directly related to the Martin/Zimmerman situation, but it is to racism. These are some very wise words from a very wise man. I wholeheartedly agree with this philosophy.

are you retarded OP? if u cant tell the diff. go read a ******* book
User avatar #165 to #163 - UnknownDouchebag (07/17/2013) [-]
Yea, a law book. The difference is that Zimmerman acted in self defense and thus it wasn't a crime.
User avatar #317 - minnten (07/17/2013) [-]
The difference is that only in Obama's America can a Mexican shoot an African American and the White man will be blamed.
