Hey, just because I'm hooking up with a furry with a nice looking dick I met over the internet, it doesn't mean I'm homosexual. I'm bisexual. Maybe. Might end up flat out homosexual. I'm talking about you sparkyoneonetwo.

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

that is an idiotic phrase because it directly implies that racism can only go one way.


But judging by I Am Monkey's thumbs, everyone already knew that.

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.

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.

this story brought up my rage. I hope he withers away in prison, never seeing daylight again. Sorry about your loss!
#498 to #472 - anonymousiemoo (07/17/2013) [-]
He is pleading not guilty so another 2 weeks before we find out how long he gets sent down for. However, him pleading not guilty means they have to go in to full detail of exactly what happened including pictures in front of Sasha's mum, dad and siblings in court. This just pushes it that bit worse than it already is.

User avatar #16 to #2 - coolmcbob (07/17/2013) [-]
I know your rage my friend. I personally find rape is actually far worse than murder, and yet there is so much more hullabaloo for someone dying as opposed to someone being put through one of the most traumatic experiences of their lives, and living with that pain for the rest of it.
Which is exactly why I get extra mad when a stupid ******* teenage cunt tries to copout and say she was "raped" because she regretted getting drunk and having sex.
**** this topic gets me mad
#201 to #16 - anon (07/17/2013) [-]
She was raped when she was 14 which messed her head up... then now as she is getting back to normal this guy comes and rapes and murders her not giving her a chance to live her life.

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.

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.

But there was controversy in the Marely Lion case.
Before he died, Marely claimed that he was drunk and in his own car, and he tried to get help because he thought the man was trying to rob him, but the man claims that Marely was attempting to break into his car and then charged him.
#566 to #279 - jinapayne (07/17/2013) [-]
Interesting. Maybe people were just too focused on Zimmerman. The media can only report one big story at a time really.
As long as some black racist doesnt say "it's uncontroversial because everyone all knows the kid is innocent because he's white" but then again some white racists say the same thing about the Martin case. lol

The Trayvon case attracted tons of attention before a verdict was reached

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.

User avatar #470 to #6 - didactus (07/17/2013) [-]

User avatar #550 to #522 - weenieandthebutt (07/17/2013) [-]
Hence, that's why I kept trying to apologise numerous times. I'm a very awkward character when it comes to inappropriate jokes and bad timing.
#575 to #6 - anon (07/17/2013) [-]
First of all, he was no longer Neighborhood Watch and was instructed by the police dispatcher not to follow Trayvon, but did anyway.

Further, please quit lumping all "lefties" into one basket. I'm a liberal and perfectly capable of maintaining a civil discussion on this or anything else with someone who is also intent on being civil. However, when you throw generalizations like that around as if they're nothing, it's hard to believe you would conduct yourself with civility throughout a contentious discussion without resorting to yet more generalizations or ad hominem.

Dude, ever since the verdict I've seen so many of my White and even Latino friends un-friended by one or two black people. It's ******* pathetic, that people would throw away a friendship over something that is completely irrelevant to their day to day lives.

Over time, this whole case will go to show you which of your black friends are African-American and which of them are ******* , because if you don't know the difference, you soon will.
User avatar #370 to #366 - weenieandthebutt (07/17/2013) [-]
That girl wasn't a close friend or anything, in fact, I don't usually give a **** about offending people but I hate offending good natured people since it makes you feel like the worst asshole in the world. She's a kind hearted girl, an honour student so she isn't anywhere near a ****** . She can even take some of the stereotypical black jokes but for some reason, she felt like the whole case was really sensitive and personal to her.

I whole heartedly agree that it's so silly throwing away friendships just over contrasting personal opinions. I think third wave feminism is ******* stupid (and sometimes a slap in the face towards me as a male who has to work just as hard as anyone else in order to get by in this world) but I overlook their opinions and get along with them as nice people. As for ******* in general, I'm not going to even take them seriously anyways.

It's not quite as black and white as it's being perceived on either side actually. I was in college in Orlando at the time of the original uproar as a CJ major. Many of my professors were friends with the Sanford PD Chief who was forced to resign over this whole ridiculous ordeal despite following protocol. Zimmerman was not a part of any designated neighborhood watch. He was self appointed and he had made many calls to police in the past regarding suspicious black males. Black being the operative word as it was his usual suspect leading you to believe he was a racist. Was he? I don't know. Probably, but that actually had little to do in this particular case. He also had aspirations of being police officer to which he tested and failed I believe on two occasions, but I know he did at least once. Treyvon was, to put it bluntly, was a typical ****** child. He was not some godly little angel the media portrayed him to be. I said from the beginning that the trial was going to be in favor of Zimmerman, to the point where my retarded leftist sister stopped talking to me. Most of my professors agreed that there was no real case against Zimmerman other than a racial bias speculation. I never really followed the case after I graduated, but from what I saw afterward more evidence came out of Zimmerman being injured, which only furthered my conclusion that there was no way the state would be able to prosecute him. I think Zimmerman is a little misguided, but I also believe that he shot Treyvon due to self defense. I know this got destroyed in the media and it's causing a ********* everywhere, but I am kind of glad about that. If a kid is shot anywhere it should cause an uproar. The fact that the other case there is so cut and dry is probably why it never saw media attention. American media is a complete joke at this point. Most of my professors have seen there personal cases from when they were investigators butchered on the news. It's not just fox either. It's all of them.
User avatar #360 to #348 - weenieandthebutt (07/17/2013) [-]
Zimmerman seemed to have both a bit of a violent past when he resisted arrest, abusive towards his fiance and like you said, quite racially discriminate towards black males. Conversely, he'd mentored young black boys and helped out the black community in the past so it's difficult to fully distinguish between his general nature. As for Trayvon, the fact that he's falling behind at school, doing drugs, and getting suspended over being in a forbidden zone doesn't bother me but his past violent tendencies is what portrays him as this typical thug.

Regarding the incident in itself, I believe that it was due to Zimmerman's poor judgement but whether it was out of good intention or bad intention was not clear. People act as if Trayvon had no reason to fight him but if Zimmerman had the ulterior motive to murder him, then why call the police in the first place? Even if Trayvon attacked first, maybe he attacked just out of general paranoia or provocation but none the less, it's still self defence in Zimmerman's case. From a neutral perspective, maybe it was just a little misunderstanding between the two due to both judgement and reckless decision making. It's quite a shame that one happened to lose his life and another will probably have to watch his back for the rest of his life.

I can't stand those biased Trayvon supporters who are turning this into an unnecessary race issue and are overlooking his general character, past actions and the evidence that's presented. At the same time, I'm not hero worshipping Zimmerman either and claiming he's completely innocent. I'm also not like, "HERRP DERPPP Trayvon was a scummy ****** who got what was coming to him". I really want to know the opinion of black guys on this matter who are able to overlook the whole petty race issue thing.

In 2005, a woman filed a petition for an injunction against Zimmerman, claiming that he came to her house and became violent when she told him to leave, the Orlando Sentinel reports. Zimmerman, 21 at the time, filed a petition of his own in response.
Just a month before that, the paper reports, Zimmerman was at a bar near the University of Central Florida when a friend was arrested on suspicion of serving minors. Zimmerman became profane and pushed a law enforcement agent who tried to escort him away. He was arrested after a short struggle. That arrest had been reported previously.
In both cases, injunctions have kept the cases' outcomes sealed.

I ditched this lefty photographer because he wouldn't stop posting about feminism

it is my hypothesis that there is no requirement that all blacks and hispanics have to care about this case, and most of them don't, but the loudest ones do because Al Sharpton said they all have to.

But don't worry, he's also telling every black person which side is the right one, because you know that he knows everything. He's famous!

I'm glad zimmerman was found innocent. He was attacked and according to Florida state stand your ground law he was in the right.

On the night of June 5th 2011 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, McDonald and four of her friends, all of them black, walked a half mile to buy some food. At first the the police stopped and questioned them but then let them go. Then they walked past some white people in front of a bar calling them “faggots”, “ ******* ” and “chick with dicks”.

Either she or one of her friends went over and told them not to talk like that. A white woman, Molly Flaherty, smashes her beer mug in McDonald’s face. Flaherty then says, ”I can take on all of you bitches” and throws the first punch. A fight breaks out.

At one point McDonald and Dean Schmitz are out in the middle of the street. McDonald is 22, Schmitz is a man in his 40s. McDonald pulls out a pair of fabric scissors from her bag. Schmitz charges. She stabs him right through the heart. She may not have seen it at the time but over his heart was a tattoo of a swastika, a white supremacist symbol.

McDonald and her friends flee, Schmitz dies on the way to the hospital. The police arrest her for second-degree murder, facing up to 80 years in prison. In male prison at that, probably much of it in solitary for her own “protection”.

Among trans women in prison, 20% have been physically assaulted, 21% have been sexually assaulted. And if you are of colour, like McDonald, the rates for sexual assault are two to three times higher than that.

Among LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans) people killed in hate crimes, 44% are trans women, especially trans women of colour.
