What if Zimmerman was black and Martin was white?

This is an interesting case a black man was accused of gunning down a white teenager and was found not guilty.

I personally do not know if the verdict was correct or not but I am sick of the obvious divide an conquer tactics taking place in the media.

Even here in Australia they are trying to make it a black versus white issue. The thing is there was no white guy involved! Still people like to go on about how biased the law is in favour of whites.

what if we are all standing on a dock at a marine port...

and some of us realize that a giant cargo ship is barreling toward the dock at a rate of speed that makes collision inevitable. Are we going to stand around debating race or are we going make others aware of the impending situation and form a plan of action to survive?

What if everyone was green?

What if everyone was green?

i beg to differ

Check out the Brunswick Ga baby shot case. Two black teen agers 17 & 15 shot and killed a 13 month old baby white of course and there are no outrage. And they are charged wih murder but will NOT face death penalty. So tell me if two white boys shot and killed a black 13 mo old baby there would be no outrage and riots.

It would never have went to court and never made the news.

Zimmerman had a perfect self defense case. Doesn't matter what color his skin is. He passed a lie detector test. He has been punished more by the media because his daddy was white.

Enough of this S!@#!!!

Ha ha sorry....

wouldn't make a lick of difference

to me.

If the facts of the case were identical but Zimmerman were black, and Martin white, I'd favor the same result.

I agree. But . . .

You wouldn't have heard about it to begin with.
