The major difference

as Paul_S has pointed out, of course is that Kony 2012 was a full fledged government funded psy-op to dupe the public (mostly the political 'left') into raising consensus for an invasion of Uganda. This would have been in order to "catch the bad guy" - Joseph Kony, an African warlord who had previously operated in Uganda. Kony however, as noted by native Ugandans, had not been seen in Uganda for over 5 years. It became most apparent that the Kony 2012 campaign was actually being used as a ploy when it was realized that Uganda has significantly large oil reserves. The puzzle pieces had been placed next to each other for most people and the campaign quickly lost steam and credibility.

On the other hand, the Travon-Zimmerman Incident is not being used by the media to push for an invasion of a country for it's resources, but is being used to divide the public into yet two more subsets who will played off against one another. The name of the game is divide and rule; if all the people stood in unison regardless of their backgrounds and beliefs, the hierarchical card house would collapse over night. Those who still believe that Kony 2012 is a noble campaign can be easily dis-proven, whereas those who take certain stances on the Trayvon-Zimmerman incident will never be proven right or wrong. In this sense, it is the Trayvon-Zimmerman incident which serves as a much greater divisor of the people, because of the ambiguity involved in the matter. To think though, that this will make people who hold opposing beliefs hate each-other is just silly; I can already see it happening though. There was obviously aggression involved on behalf of both parties, so why try to decipher who is right and who is wrong, especially in the face of lacking evidence either way? We ought to let it be and adhere to the philosophy that it is what it is. A quarrel amongst two individuals which happens every day. The fact that it was given such a big spotlight in the media speaks to this effect of divide and rule; it was perfect for them that a white man killed a young black man to give it the racial element that was needed. In their minds this sets off the divide and rule alarm. "Send in the cameras and press, the people must decide!" Yeah right, more like "the people must divide."

It's pretty obvious

It's pretty obvious that they intend to use this case to distract the public from more pressing issues. You know whenever race becomes an issue there are other things happening that they don't want talked about.

Does this mean they are Federally financed, also?
