I remember when Obama got elected, black people from the pjs were jumping and yelling out of the window like he is going to make things any better. Than on the train to work, service was cancelled because people were going crazy on 125th street. I don't wanna see any negative outbursts on the street and certain things should not be fueled by racism but general minds of Americans racism still exist and no one has really embraced multicultural society.

Or perhaps the boy is dead because of the boy's actions. Maybe if he simply said he was going to his father's fiancees house instead of resorting to violence he would be alive today.

But the criminal court could not prove that OJ was present at the scene of the crime. Zimmerman was. Even the defense will not argue that.

Agree OJ was probably guilty but the prosecution did not do a thorough job in the investigation.

The most amazing thing about this thread is that Grosvenor is not mentioning "Riverdale" at least five times in each post. I didn't think that was actually possible.

Well, we KNOW Zimmerman followed Trayvon for several blocks and was told not to by the 911 dispatcher because we have the tapes. We KNOW he pulled the trigger--his prints are all over the gun. However we have only Zimmerman's word that Trayvon (who was being stalked by an armed man who outweighed him by quite a bit) "resorted to violence." That is speculation--and from a man with a violent criminal record, who'd already been caught in several lies.

I don't believe him.

And I find it interesting that you characterize a boy defending himself against said armed stalker (I have been in similar circumstances--I was stalked by a strange man down my hallway who pulled a knife on me and tried to drag me into the stairwell--you'd better believe I fought back physically) as "resorting to violence." Do you really lay no responsibility whatsoever on Zimmerman? Really?

Oh please, if this happened to 30to66at55's own kid, relative or close friend, he would be blaming the shooter instead of the person trying to defend himself. If his son tried to deend himself in a fistfight he would say "attaboy" and call the guy who used the gun a loser but with this case it's "resorting to violence".

And there won't be rioting in NYC. NYC is too far away, what good would riots here do anyone in Florida? How would riots change anything in Florida?

And while whatever was said to your coworkers in 1992, there were no riots in NY surrounding Rodney King.

Jury as almost all white women with no blacks. Some think it might not be bad as they feel that some women will sympathize with Trayvon's mother and her loss of her son who was not committing a crime, and most likely was trying to defend himself against some one who he might have thought was a criminal as Zimmerman clearly was not a cop.

There will be no riots in NYC. We do not have the same degree of racial animosity that we had 20 years ago.

Let's also look at people like Trayvon Martin who called George Zimmerman a "creepy ass cracker"..

..as well as Jenteal who said that she doesn't consider "cracker" to be a racial slur.

Disgusting.

Zimmerman is likely to walk. It looks like he was rightfully defending himself from a thug.

Wasnt a traffic accident as a kid was killed, another injured, and the NYPD brutally prevented their father from going to their aid. The Jewsi driver was attended to and the blacks kids were ignored.

I can see that you hve decided that Trayvon is a thug. Why? Because he is black? Please do not tell me that its because of the weed because then huge numbers of 20 y/o white males will be so categorized.
