The whole deal, even the protest, iis stoked by the little ugly EDUCATION reality.

Educated folks with critical thinking skills can differentiate the issues, evaluate and synthesize the many facets, and draw logical conclusions.

On the other hand the uneducated, relying solely on concrete thought , can only grasp "Zim killed Trayvon". And that is all they can grasp.

Education, not race is the great divide.

There was a ton of police, etc ineptness and negligence after OJ murdered his wife and her friend.
Yep... and this is exactly why most whites reference the OJ trial. The OJ trial is a prime example of what blacks feel when justice isnt served. Funny how its the only trial that is brought up when having this discussion.

How could it not be about the case?

Bunch of noise about nothing, IMO (since you were asking)
Typical response Frew... I hear this Chicago response everytime people talk about this case. There have been rallies in Chicago, there have been discussions and frustration over the murders in Chicago... but what the heck does that have to so with the GZ case?

There are highly educated folks protesting & demonstrating & writing about justice, dissatisfied with the outcome of the trial, and highly educated folks who believe justice has been served. I'm not sure what you're saying.

This thing could get way out of hand - very quickly.

We must try to overcome evil with good.

If we don't, our Nation will be in serious trouble.

If you say so. The verdict was quite predictable based on the charge and the evidence. Anyone that cannot understand that is, well, not that sharp. Dissatisfied about the outcome, so they take to the streets???? That is too much even for those with the entitlement mentality. But it is not worth arguing about.

That's the concept I find so unbelievable. These protests are baseless. Justice was served according to the law.

Oh well, what do I know?

I agree with KNOW JUSTICE, KNOW PEACE phrase. I never thought there should be a trial in the first place and I see nothing wrong with the verdict. I am thankful the jury was smart enough to view this case with logic rather than emotion.

I hear about Republicans having a war on women; but I am disgusted with the lack of respect these marchers are showing to these women that gave their time and did their job well. All women should take this into account when they vote the next time.

I am more interested in having women treated with respect and having their opinions valued than I am in women having the choice to murder their babies. There is enough birth control available that any smart woman should not need an abortion.

No the people that cause the "disturbances" will be in serious trouble.
