    Once again Robbie plays to the simpletons.
    How about “Hey young black kids, don’t call people crackers, don’t punch somebody in the face because you think he’s creepy and then don’t follow it up by smashing his head against the sidewalk”. That would be more helpful.
    Oh ya, “And don’t riot in the streets destroying people’s property and sucker punching them because you think it’s fun”.

    TM wasn’t trespassing. But you think he needed to die because someone else in the neighborhood thought he did. Also the tall tail you just repeated was parts of stories 3 and 4 that Zimmerman said. Like him you seem to have trouble keeping those lies straight.

    You assume the worst of one and put a halo on the other. You don’t mind giving an opinion on something you can’t know the truth of……

    Before we go to far, this story from Fox should be read by Conservatives. I used Fox so conservatives will believe it.

    As a white male who spent A LOT of time in 1960’s Mississippi, I understand and appreciate this cartoon.
    Back then, warnings to black youth included –
    “Don’t look a white person in the eye and don’t glare or look angry at them.” “Don’t argue if they accuse you of something, just apologize and try to get away when you can.”
    ^
    I’ve seen black MEN slapped by white children and there was nothing they could do about it without fear of reprisal.
    While the world is much improved since then, it is still far from the point it needs to reach.

    ConserveGov – if you were being followed home by a man in a car what would you do? If you were near to your home, would you lead the man to your door? Trayvon should have called 911 himself. He could have also returned to the store where he bought his skittles and asked them to call the police. He didn’t think of that, and after being ADVISED by the 911 operator that they "Didn’t need him(Zimmerman) to do that(follow Martin), he got out of his car to talk to Martin. Had he OBSERVED and REPORTED the way neighborhood watches are supposed to, Martin would not be dead and wouldn’t have had anyone to call a cracker. Had he not gotten out of his car and confronted Martin, Martin would not have felt he needed to protect himself from a person that was behaving like a predator.
    Had Martin just run into his father’s house to escape the ‘predator’, Martin would not be dead.
    Martin wasn’t an adult, Zimmerman was. But no adult decisions were made in this instance.
    ^
    When a black woman with no previous police record “Stands Her Ground” against an abusive husband and shoots a WALL gets 20 years, while a man who pursued and confronted another ‘man’ gets off after killing him, it is hard to think this law is being applied in an objective or civil manner.
    Respectfully,

    So, you’re conservative source material is about experiences from over four decades ago? When was the last time you witnessed or heard about whites rioting because something didn’t go their way? It’d time for the conjecture and nonsense to end and for people to have discussions rooted in current reality.

    Rob, Rob, Rob… You forgot to advise the young black child to be wary of crazy crackers and the thugs in his own neighborhood. You also forgot to tell the young white child to try not and let his KKK Youth Hoodie get dirty while out playing in his gated community with all of the other haters and racists. Let it go, reality is waiting right outside your rose-colored studio.

    @Ken M

    It is easy for those who do not have to deal with a problem to criticize the ones who do.
    It’s not a civil thing to do, and it shows a lack of respect or understanding, but it is easy.

    Why is a woman who has never been arrested and was standing her ground against a husband who was violating his restraining order going to jail for 20 years?
    As far as whites rioting, integration and busing caused riots from the late 50’s through the early 80’s. In 79, whites in San Francisco rioted to protest the death of Harvey Milk and the Mayor. During the first decade of the 2000s, there were numerous whites rioting in protest of international gatherings. I assume you just mean rioting in America or I can add more.
    You are looking at the world through a very narrow tube, Mr. M. You seem to lack empathy for those you do not understand.
    Sadly,

    Like it or not, the truth is, conditions for minorities are NOT nearly as good as they should be….
    There is a degree of truth in this poli-toon..And this degree will remain as long as we have racism, fear and ignorance…..
    This will not happen in my lifetime….the conservatives are seeing to this…

    @Ken M

    The conservative source material is from 2012; do you think this woman should have been sentenced to 20 years?

    Respectful’s experience is from four decades ago and RT states that it has changed but not a great deal.

    There are people of ALL races, including whites, that riot when their sports team loses OR when they win.

    You really need to pay attention more.

    @PAJ

    Don’t need to be a witness to say that Martin wasn’t trespassing – his father’s fiance lived in the community. This is common knowledge. And Peabody was replying to someone quoting one of Zimmerman’s versions of the story – it changed periodically.

    @PAJ

    Take a reading comprehension class. Respectful Troll mentioned their experiences and then stated that this is still occurring today. And RT included an example where a black woman received 20 years for firing into a wall – why wasn’t THAT considered standing her ground?

    @Nantucket19

    Exactly. And don’t forget lynch mobs, which were once so popular and acceptable among white communities that attendees would smilingly, proudly pose with their friends for photographers while a black man or woman hung at the end of a rope.

    The warning shot women went back to her car and shot into a house with children in it. the laws she was convicted under was a gun haters dream law, 10 years a bullet that was fired with no regard.
    So what was your point again?
