I don't know about that. A lot of the poor white trash I have know are aggressive mean-spirited types who have a habit of making themselves a problem. That is what kinda makes them trash as opposed to just being poor and white.

If you can find a case of b/b violence with these same set of circumstances, please provide a link. Otherwise, realize that this is an entirely different type of case.
Exactly. I have heard a lot of black people talking about black-on-black violence. Oddly enough, a lot of conservatives turn that discussion into "Does that mean black-on-white violence is more acceptable?" which misses the point entirely.

Also, I always remember the line in the Dr. Dre song Bang Bang "N---as doing each other worse than the Klan"

Apparently he was your average 6'2" teen with 'Hoes' on his mind, drug use "all we do is smoke & f***", and violence (you can read the crude text yourself).
I fail to see what a twitter account has to do with someone following you as you're walking from the store talking to your girlfriend on the phone.

I work security in a strip club down on the southwest side of Detroit. For whatever reason we got a TV in the bathroom. These days whenever I'm there to take care of my business I notice a bunch of people crowding the pissers just to glimpse the latest on CNN. People are angry, and I'm hearing all sorts of things out of the mouths of all sorts of people.

I think the guy is going to get indicted so all this speculation will be worthless in the end. I don't find the atmosphere is ready for a repeat of the RK riots. I was a teenager in south LA at the time and the amount of anger and frustration doesn't feel as comparable. But I was more plugged in then, now I do my job, have a couple of beers, and go home.

CNN... what about the pole? Get the tata's on the screen, don't let the people see what's going on in the world. It's too scary... boobies on the other hand are soft and inviting.

Everyone wants to see change, but everyone stands around waiting for someone else to get the ball rolling.
I don't see any change in the blacks . They are just creating a bad situation into a worse situation . They don't call on an investigation only. No,, they want to put a bounty on Zimmerman.. I don't see Sharpton coming out against that.. he wants escalation of the violence.

One is dead and the whole way it went down is unknown. and it is tragic that it happened . We do know that Zimmerman was beaten and it was a bad situation that escalated into a death . Some things are just crazy how they happen.

Then calling an Hispanic a white is for the purpose of racial division against whites as a whole.. we know how they want to orchestrate this, right down to denying Zimmermans culture. If that is the case they bring into this situation, then Obama is white too.

This whole thing with Al Sharpton is crazy bad. They ought to silence him because he is an inciter of racism.

Blacks got to condemn this whole way of going about it.. talk about vigilante.. they are promoting it now with Sharpton rallying for more.. Sharpton is just like the black panthers. I am sick of him and his loud mouth cries of profiling and racism.

The Twitter has nothing to do with talking on the phone.
The Twitter feed was to show that perhaps what is being portrayed in the media is spin doctored to sanitize Mr. Martin.
Likewise, the media is demonizing Mr. Zimmerman.

Without all the facts, one should not jump to conclusions.

But one conclusion can be drawn - "someone" is hoping for a violent reaction - regardless of the initiating party.

Do you think Obama, or other presidential candidate should get involved?
The leader of the black panthers has next to no influence on the people of America. And I doubt a riot will ignite anytime soon. Believe or not, people are rather relaxed these days...

There are already flash mobs that are looting stores over this case...
Yeah, people are real relaxed.
