Allen West accused the NAACP and other race-baiters of cherry picking cases for a political agenda, pointing out that they’ve been silent on two horrible cases where a white family was savagely murdered and a white baby shot in the face by two black teenagers:

    I wonder if this had been Mr. West’s teenage son, what will his reaction had been?  He as a black man, knows why so many people are hurting right now.  Also, in regards to the cases he is referring to, were the perpetrators caught?  I wish politicians would stay out of this.  It’s already a terribly sad and divisive situation, no need for the pandering to their respective bases.

    • NYGino

      bx_ny   “He as a black man, knows why so many people are hurting right now.”
      Please explain your thoughts.
      Thank you

        “He as a black man knows why so many people are hurting right now”
        Please explain your thoughts
        bx_ny’s ‘thoughts’, such as they are are that Allen West, as a black man, should not be capable of looking at this situation objectively and should be susceptible to the same irrational, race based views on this case that liberals, both black and white have in this situation.

      • bx_ny

        NYGino bx_ny Obviously, I’m not a liberal or I wouldn’t be on this board.  However, as a black man, I do understand the pain so many are experiencing.  I’m too young for the n-word to bother me, but for my grandparents, parents, uncles and aunts, who actually lived through the time when blatant racism was rampant, so I am extremely sensitive about expressing my opposing views.

        In this case, you had an unarmed black teenager killed and the known killer got off free.  Regardless of the nuts and bolts of the case, just think about the memories this brought back to people like my relatives.  Mr. West know this too.  There is a time and a place for his type of discussion, and they are taking place, but his public statement does not help anything.

        • famouswolf

          ‘the time when blatant racism was rampant’. There never was a time like that in the USA. There have been mistakes made, and over reactions, and gross injustice, yes indeed. Also a lot of good, done by good people. White people are not the enemy of black unless you make us so. In that case, well, read some history.
          If I were you I would not accept blanket statements such as ‘blatant racism was rampant’. They are dangerous at best and can lead to gross miscarriages of justice such as the Zimmerman trial. Even question what is meant by the term ‘racism’. Mainly ask yourself why anyone would want to stoke antagonism between social or political groups. Look at the results of such struggle..like Europe before the world wars. Look at it from all angles, not just the petrie dish you grew up in.
          And believe me, there is a great deal of good will from people like me, although patience is wearing thin.

        • NYGino

          bx_ny  Thank you for the reply bx_ny.
          I, like most people, would also rather be judged by the content of my character rather than the color of my skin (white), thank you MLK, and it seems that this concept only goes one way.  
          Turn the tables around and ask yourself, would there be an issue if a black person ended the life of a white person acting in self defense?  I don’t think so.  Would there be an issue if a black person ended the life of another black person acting in self defense?  I don’t think so.  Would there be an issue if a white person ended the life of another white person acting in self defense?  I don’t think so.
          But  if a white person ends the life of a black person acting in self defense, well that’s a whole different ballgame.  Time to play the race card, and in this case the person sitting in our White House dealt the cards big time.
          In the posting above famouswolf says “patience is wearing thin” and I agree with him.  It’s not us Crackers who won’t let go, it’s the race baiting industry that is using you and this issue for control and we are all suffering from it.

        • NYGino

          bx_ny  Also, it’s not obvious that you’re a liberal because you are on this board, there are many liberals who give their views and they are listened to,  not always agreed with but this is an open site that has open minds and everyone is welcome,  unless they make total boors out of themselves, are playing games or are offensive in some way.
          Stick around my friend, open up your mind.  We won’t tell anybody.

        • bx_ny

          NYGinoI responded to you in good faith b/c I thought you wanted an answer, but didn’t want a response.  You just wanted an excuse to spout some nonsense.  A grown man killed an unarmed boy and got away with it.  No matter what the race, it’s just wrong.

        • bx_ny

          bx_ny I have an open mind, can you say that?  My mind is open enough to see both sides POV.

        • NYGino

          bx_ny  I did want an answer and in good faith I answered you back.  It’s called a conversation.  Where and how did I disrespect you?  You didn’t like my answer so you label it nonsense?
          I gave you what I thought was a respectful and thought out response but it seems like you’re only looking for a confrontation.
          BTW.  Get off the “boy” stuff.  He was an over 6 foot tall aggressor who messed with the wrong person at the wrong time.  He wasn’t some twelve year old choir boy skipping home from cub scouts.

        • bx_ny

          famouswolfWhat is people like you?  Who said white people are the enemy of black?  Do you have any black friends?  There are plenty of white people who thought Zimmerman should have been punished.
          “‘the time when blatant racism was rampant’. There never was a time like that in the USA.”
          How old are you?  What kind of statement is that?

        • bx_ny

          NYGino So are you seriously telling me, if Travon was white and Zimmerman was black, you would be okay with the outcome?

        • NYGino

          bx_ny  Given the same circumstances absolutely, positively yes.  What does color have to do with it?

        • Lady_Penquin

          bx_ny NYGino No, not an “unarmed” “boy.” Trayvon was a young man, almost full grown, muscular and active in martial arts. He was pounding another young man’s head into the cement sidewalk – that btw, is a lethal weapon.

        • K-Bob

          bx_ny NYGino That is simply a misrepresentation of the facts.
          It’s too bad that Zimmerman was in a situation where a gun was his only alternative, but that’s what happens when someone who is bigger, faster, and stronger than you is beating your head into the concrete, and you can’t make them stop.
          Would it have been better if Zimmerman were a better street fighter, who could have avoided getting “grounded and pounded?” sure.  Would it have been better still of Martin hadn’t attacked Zimmerman? Definitely.
          Both men were suspicious of each other. But both were in the right to do what they were doing up to the point where Martin attacked Zimmerman.
          And sadly, Martin was already spiraling down a path of self-destruction that could have possibly been prevented. If all of the people who claim to care so very much for the young man had managed to give the least little bit of concern for him back when he was already in trouble for stealing, violent behavior, and taking drugs, Martin might still be alive today.

        • bx_ny

          Lady_PenquinYou know what, I can’t talk about this anymore. I have 3 boys all who are 6 ft and over b/c I’m 6’4, but none older than 16.  I can only if one of them came across 5’7 George Zimmerman in that situation.

        • famouswolf

          OK, I have your number.
          Better hope I don’t see you later, gater.

    • badbadlibs

      bx_ny 
      You totally miss the point. It’s because of views like yours there are still “sad and DIVISIVE” situations.

      • bx_ny

        badbadlibs bx_ny What are my views?

    • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/index dmacleo

      bx_ny if it were his teenage son it would not have happened. because that son would have had parents that raise a child and not toss the child around like collateral.

      • Orangeone

        dmacleo bx_ny TM was nothing more than a welfare check.

      • bx_ny

        dmacleo bx_ny So every bad teenage boy is the result of bad parenting?

        • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/index dmacleo

          bx_ny dmacleo where did I say that?
          stop acting retarded.
          this teenager had no family. he was tossed back and forth because nobody had the guts or the brains to raise him correctly. this tragedy is the fault of the parents.

        • bx_ny

          dmacleoNo, you are being retarded b/c you are assuming you know how he was raised.  And please quit making assumptions about his family.
          Good parents don’t always equate to good kids, especially during teenage boys years.  You should know this.

        • famouswolf

          You don’t want to throw that ‘retarded’ crap around here, trust me.
          What assumptions about the family? It’s on the record.

    • sDee

      West’s point is that all cases like this should be judged on the facts and their merit. The Zimmerman case and been investigated and cleard 4 times before a race baiting Preisdent, AG and meda stireed up deep racism like has never been seen in this county.
      West’s point is to apply the law blindfolded to the color of a man’s skin. 
      West point is that the NAACP, the Media, the politcal class use race a the sole basis of which cases they will shove down the throats fo America.
      They are fueling racism for politcal and financial gain. Allow them to use you to that end if you like. The rest of America will rise above it and we will take bak the rule of law.

      • volsense

        sDee West’s point is how thing should actually be, but they are as they never will be. All the trial did was rip the wounds open of the fanatical racial hatred the black race has for whites and “whire” hispanics.As long and the race hatred fantatics like Shapton, Holder, Rangel

        • sDee

          It was indeed the method of Holder and Hussein to fuel racism among Americans. Their objective is Stand Your Ground laws.
          Without stand your ground laws creeps like Holder and Hussein effectively remove ou 2nd Amendment rights by prosecuting intended victims  who defended themselves. Such cases send a message that if your excercise you rights to defend yourself with a firearm, you will be sent to jail or forced into bankruptcy defending yourself.
          The 2nd Amendment is the target here. Race baiting is the strategy.

        • volsense

          sDee It didn’t take Obama long to invoke the 2nd Amendment after the verdict was received. What is the most pathetic fact of all is the naivete’ of the American peoiple cannot see the attack from within on our way of life that is in place now. Zimmerman’s case was handpicked for the DOJ to put it into motion.  Having a racist like Holder at the top of the DOJ was for this very reason.

        • NYGino

          sDee   True sDee.  The systemic attacks on the 2nd Amendment uses race baiting as a tactic but race baiting is used, also, to achieve other aims.  Keeping the left in power by division, to assuage unfounded liberal guilt, to line the pockets of those who profit from it ( the MSM), and the control of minorities…to name just a few.

        • NYGino

          volsense sDee   It was also used as an ongoing diversion, as so many other non-story stories are, to deflect the country’s mind from the criminal actions of the Obama administration.

        • http://cfp4us.org/ AmericanborninCanada

          NYGino volsense sDee YES!!!

        • bx_ny

          volsense So you really believe the WHOLE black race hates white and white hispanics?  Believe it or not, most blacks do not sit around hating other races.  Get out more.  Don’t believe everything you hear from the so-called black race mouthpieces.  C’mon now.  
          BTW, I keep seeing people mention the Black Panthers like they are some sort of great army of soldiers.  FACT:  I know a whole lot of black people and I have never met a Black Panther.

        • famouswolf

          Don’t forget Jews, Indians, Viets, Koreans, Japanese, etc. etc.
          They are too dumb to see the future, I guess. It’s not very bright for them imo. About like the nazis circa 1945.

      • famouswolf

        Actually, when you step back and look at it objectively, we are not doing badly at keeping control. Considering how hard we are being pushed, and our buttons punched it’s surprising their isn’t race/civil war already. That said, I’m very afraid it’s coming.

      • pajamakat

        badbadlibs bx_ny In reference to your last sentence : because Sharpton, Jackson and the rest of their ilk would be out of business.

    • Orangeone

      bx_ny Yes the teenage racist thugs that shot that little baby have been arrested.  Obama and Holder probably released them out the back door because their NBPP called for the murder of cracker babies.

      • bx_ny

        Orangeone Well, that’s the major difference.

  • SCarolina

    When spelled out, the name of the NAACP would seem to be upsetting to the “colored” people.

    • Orangeone

      SCarolina And isn’t Hispanic a person of color?  So why isn’t the “colored people” org standing up for Zimmerman, not colored enough for them???

  • DHardy

    Trayvon sent up a lot of red flags before this happened. the school was upset they kicked him out. His parents were tossing him back and forth because they didn’t know what to do with him. Trayvon was hell bent and reaching for help that was not there…Zimmerman didn’t kill Trayvon..Society and his parents did..Decent kids don’t just walk up to strangers alone and punch them in the face just because they felt like they were being nosy..Clearly Trayvon had done things like this before and was right at home confronting Zimmerman…..

    • kong1967

      DHardy “Clearly Trayvon had done things like this before….” — DHardy
      Yes, and he was on the phone bragging about beating people up not long before this incident occurred.  It wasn’t allowed into evidence.
      I see what you’re saying about the parents and society, but I kind of disagree.  That makes Trayvon out to be a victim of society.  People overcome.  I’ve known a lot of people that had crappy parents and live in the same society as us and they turned out just fine.  Trayvon killed Trayvon.  He is in control of his own destiny and his own behavior.  Blaming others is what liberals are good at (and don’t take that as a reference to you, lol).  Good parenting is important, but even good parents can’t stop a kid that is bound determined to be a bad seed.

    • Orangeone

      DHardy Wonder what the criminal records on his parents, step parents and other surrounding adults look like.

  • badbadlibs

    aluckylady 
    I hope your heartfelt sympathies also go out to Mr. Zimmerman and his family. They are forever changed and will never regain the peace they had before this became a media circus due in great part to the POTUS speaking out erroneously.

  • kong1967

    What does he mean when he says that if they would have just let the justice system take it’s due course there probably would have been a different outcome?  Because, evidently, they raised the bar by injecting race and they couldn’t reach that level of evidence.
    I’m sorry, I love Allen West but that is bullarky.  There was no case, period.
    Racial profiling works and it’s a natural reaction, especially on an individual person basis.  When we get on a plane, we aren’t looking for an 81 year old grandmother in a wheelchair concealing a bomb.  We (not the government) are looking for Muslims chanting “Allahu Akbar” and for suspicious behavior.  If there’s a rash of break-ins by young black teens, we are keeping our eye out for young black teens.  When there are serial killers, police call in profiling experts to narrow it down to what race, gender, age, personality, and other traits.  It works, and you can’t control your own personal “profiling” of others.

    • nodummie

      kong1967 yes racial profiling works .  israel uses it all the time they have proved it works.  people in this country are all stupid.

    Excellent point.

  • sDee

    The words of a leader not just a politician.  
    The media and political class surround leaders of freemen, like white blood cells on a virus.

  • Stoptheusurper

    Why isn’t Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson (Jackson is from Chicago) and the Black Panthers (they are from Chicago) and President Obama (he is from Chicago) protesting the Chicago Police Department for not solving the murders of Donald Young and Larry Bland. These two men were black homosexuals, two reasons why these perverts mentioned above should be protesting the cops. There is a strong possibility that the murders were “hate crimes” right? Not only were these men black homosexuals, they were close friends of Barack and Michelle and attended Jeremiah Wright’s church with Barack and Michelle. Now there is a reason for a “beer summit” it there ever was a reason. What a great opportunity for Obama to declare that the Chicago police are “acting stupidly.” Young, by the way was investigating allegations made by another homosexual and drug addict Larry Sinclair at the time of his murder. Why the hell isn’t the left wing media demanding that the cops do their job?
    Oooops, the silence may be the result of the possibility that it may come to close to the ONE they love and defend at all cost, even selling out their cause for justice.

    • nodummie

      Stoptheusurper maybe oboma hired them.

    • CalCoolidge

      Stoptheusurper They are not protesting those murders, because it doesn’t advance their agenda of class struggle – Social Marxism, is you will.
      The attempts to create economic-based revolution against the bourgeoisie class didn’t work out, so a long time they switched to pitting gender against gender and now trans-gender, and race against race.

    • tebehrens

      Stoptheusurper Well said…Very well said indeed..I do believe the criminality of obama will see the cold light of day..unfortunately it may take too long to save the union from the irreperable damage this regime has caused..

    The real story is the killing in Chicago everyday . You think obama cares ,well he dont , and you 51percenters love him for that . 4 killed in Benghazi , how many have died in Fast and Furious ? Fort Hood , was just a bump in the road , to him , and all you get is lying , and you people love that to .

      HCTUB Just a FYI, I am not one of the 51 percent.  I didn’t vote for him when he ran the first time, something about his name reminded me of our troops that were being killed in Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan and being a vet that made my hair stand on end.  All of the instances of government interference, lack of judgement and total abandonment rankle me.  I feel that had the government stood down on this issue because they were throwing up a smokescreen to cover up some of the crap they are doing, the media wouldn’t have picked it up.  The media being the bulldog that it is won’t let it go because it sells.  Then it is picked up by the hate mongers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, then the Black Panthers, then white extremeist and the list goes on and on. Revenge builds revenge.  It just keeps getting worse, and we (all of us, not just whites, but blacks, hispanic, all nationalities) are the ones that are going to pay for it.   It is time for this young man to be laid to rest.  It is time for Mr. Zimmerman to be allowed to try and live with the fact that he took another’s life.  It is time for the media to back off so that this can happen.

      • HCTUB

        First , I would like to THANK YOU for your service to our great country . I believe obama is no leader , he dont care about anyone but himself , but that’s my opinion . The world is laughing at him because of the decisions he has made .

    Bingo! Allen West hits a bullseye!

  • CalCoolidge

    At some point, wouldn’t it be nice if someone could inject that from a scientific standpoint, the whole idea of “race” is a fallacy. 
    Zimmerman’s lineage is South American, but he’s white. If you want to control the southern border of the US, you are a white racists.  So, according to our liberal Neo-Nazi “friends,” people of South American lineage are white or non-white depending on whom they wish to direct their race-hate rhetoric.

    • gsmith_62

      CalCoolidge Optics and no objective standards.

      “I’m asking you to use your common sense, use your heart, use what you know is real,” said Guy.
      Don’t judge Zimmerman by the LAW, no, use your heart.

    • bx_ny

      CalCoolidge Actually, South Americans notoriously look down on Mexicans and Central Americans b/c they feel they have more a direct link to the mother country, Spain.
      At least that’s how it was explained to me.

      • famouswolf

        That may be true, but it just strengthens his point.

    • famouswolf

      Pretty much.
      The very fact that people of all colors can have babies together means there is just the human race. The whole ‘race issue’ is a red herring and total fiction. You’d think people would be getting over all of it so long after colonialism and the horrible wars of the first half of the twentieth century, but no, humankind is going for the brass ring again using flawed logic such as you point out.

    • K-Bob

      CalCoolidge 
      “…the whole idea of “race” is a fallacy.”
      I’ve been saying this for years.  The people that it angers the most are usually the ones the most invested in hating white people for supposedly being racist.

      • famouswolf

        Yeah, you usually hear it from aggressors and would be conquerers.
        Example is the way Apaches and Comanches were considered subhuman by the Mexicans and Americans in the latter stages of the Indian Wars. While the civilized whites and hispanics were saying the indians were subhuman, couldn’t cry or feel emotions, hunting them for scalp bounty and so forth the Apache and Comanche were fighting to survive including capturing women and children to bolster their numbers…kind of odd behaviour for subhumans who were a different race that couldn’t emote like humans. The left, at least the guys like obama, holder, and sharpton are trying to do that now. Totally demonize Jews, Christians, anything more than half white American. They want to totally dominate and enslave everyone else using any means possible including dire philosophies like islam, I think. The angst and anger are frustrated symptoms of their real desires.

        • K-Bob

          famouswolf  
          At least the Apache were open and frank about their tactics.
          One thing seems to be common among the indigenes here before Columbus: they had little respect for liars or crybaby adults.

        • famouswolf

          Shudder. You ever read about what happened to the first wave of Spanish invaders in the Southwest?
          Apaches and Comanches happened to them. They weren’t as tame as most of the indigenes the Spanish encountered.

    MaggieThompsonThe defense attorney for De’marquise Elkins filed a motion asking the judge to force prosecutors to hand over the entire Georgia Bureau of Investigation report on the murdered babies parents: Louis Santiago and Sherry West.
    You’ll remember West says that she was shot in the March 21st incident and Santiago says he was shopping at Walmart when it happened and wasn’t there. 
    But the GBI recently found traces of gunshot residue, or GSR, on both parents. 
    According to the report, “this supports the possibility that the individual discharged a firearm, was in close proximity to a firearm upon discharge or came into contact with an item whose surface bears GSR.” 
    In the report investigators noted that the particles found “also may originate from occupational and/or industrial sources.” 
    Neither Sherry nor Louis has ever been considered a suspect in the shooting.

      PrescolaHall What in the world is “acting white”. Why do you put that on your own people. The fear of being bullied for “acting white” causes black kids to not learn to read or go to school. They are acting white when refuse to kill people or marry for life.They join a gangs to have a family, have many baby mamas, and on and on. Why do you do this to your people. I really DO have great respect for Allen West. “Chain him and drag him behind a truck.” WHAT! You are crazy? But you have a lot of black friends who believe the same. So you think it’s true. When are you going to wake up and see white people are not out to get you. God help us all.

      Not so. Where are the protests for: ANTONIO SANTIGO 13 months old murdered in front of his mother by two black thugs. Where is the outrage over that? Nowhere. Why? Because his mother was white and Obama cant say if he had a son he would look like ANTONIO.
      This is race bating and emotional brainwashing by Obama and the Obama press.
      These people are the new brown shirts. I’d like to ask these people what they would have done different if they were in Zimmerman’s position. Would they have just lied there until the 6ft something man beet there brains out of their head? I don’t think so. The sad thing is that these people are being played lake a harp by our own government.

      • LaineyBrennan

          He wasn’t “told” not to follow, the dispatcher answered Zimmerman’s question about following.  Zimmerman’s question, not some jumped up race-baiting media hog’s concept of a mythical set of “instructions” that were somehow violated.
          Zimmerman then complied and did not FOLLOW.
          Then Martin, the much larger, faster of the two of them, circled around and attacked Zimmerman.
          Act like a thug, pay the thug’s price.  End of story.

        • tebehrens

          It is not illegal to follow someone, it is illegal to punch them and continue beating… Mr Martin brought this on himself..had be stopped and spoke with Mr Zimmerman like a decent human being, it could of easily been resolved..

        • Lady_Penquin

          LaineyBrennan Fight free or Die Slaves Patriot Dee Of course, you haven’t got your facts straight. Zimmerman was requested “you don’t need to do that, Sir” to not follow, at which time, Zimmerman said “ok” and ceased following. This came out in caught because he lost sight of Martin, and Martin’s girlfriend stated Trayvon lost sight of Zimmerman. That is, until he doubled back and jumped Zimmerman. 
          BTW, Neighborhood Watches are set up in communities where there is a NEED for one. This townhouse community had been plagued by robberies and vandalism. The community (the residents) have a right to know and report people acting suspiciously and they certainly should watch out for strangers. Did you also know that your St. Martin was in Sanford, because he was on suspension from his home school in Miami-Dade County? Did you also know that the FIRST call Trayvon’s father called was the Juvenile Detention center when Trayvon didn’t come home? Not the police or the hospitals, but the Detention center. 
          This is a tragedy all around, but the facts can’t be changed, though they can be lied about. Zimmerman was attacked by Martin, and it was well into the assault by Trayvon before George pulled his gun in self defense.

          Martin was a 6ft tall full grown man who was beating Zimmerman’s head into the concrete. The concrete was his weapon. Zimmerman was in the right like it or not.

        • Steve4101

          LaineyBrennan  The coroner stated that Trayvon was 6’3″ and roughly 190lbs at the time of his death. That being said im 29, 6’2 roughly 210lbs. What does that tell you? He might have had the mentality of a kid ( debatable in todays times ) but his size was that of a full grown man. Just some facts for you to ponder.

          When I was that age, I was about that tall and weighed about that much and I was much stronger than I am now at 238 lbs.  Why would it be any different than Tray vonMartin today.  He is a youth that had to defend himself on the streets of Miami!  He had to be strong and know how to fight (maybe dirty even) in order to survive.

        • pete0097

          When I was 17, I weighed and was about as tall as Tray vonMartin.  I was strong, fast, and able to leap over 6 ft fences.  Now, a little overweight, I am not as strong, fast or able to leap as high,  I think that I could have taken out a much larger, overweight man.  Tray had to be in fairly good shape as he had to be able to defend himself on the streets of Miami.  He had to be able to fight for the same reason.  George didn’t,  He is an out of shape, overweight, typical American male.  In a dirty fight, George is the loser, with the gun,] he has a chance, if Tray realizes he will lose against the gun, but maybe a little tennage, indestructable arogance was at play.

    Reference:

    Make no mistake they are all the same group of people with the same goal; Divide the people against each other because divided we fall. Only then can they implement a totalitarian government. They come in every skin color and are in both Democrat and Republican parties. This is not a race war it is a war of ideologies.
    Unfortunately these people have been emotionally brain washed and race bated by our own government including but not limited to Obama and the Obama Press.

    I hope everybody on this blog takes a brief moment to review the murders IN FLORIDA of two British tourists, James Kouzaris and James Cooper, who were slaughtered last year as they were literally begging for their lives. They were killed by a 16-year-old black kid by the name of Shawn Tyson. Tyson, now 17, was recently found guilty in a Florida court of the murders and was sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole. How come Eric Holder isn’t looking into this trial to see if these two white men’s civil rights were violated? How come the NAACP hasn’t made any apologetic statements about this case? Was it because the two dead people were white and NOT black? The hypocrisy in the Martin case is disgusting and it’s about time ALL of America calls out the race mongers out there for what they are, liars and hypocrites. Maybe then we can all get on with our lives. Unfortunately, the two dead British tourists that were killed in Florida will not have that luxury.

      Libertyship46 Oh, I remember this story. I felt very troubled by it. Especially the fact that they were tourists, too. What a shame.

    • AvMan

      Libertyship46 Hello,
      I think you are absolutely right about the hypocrisy.  It is the truth. Please know this: There are lots and lots of people in the black community who know that the so-called “leaders” (NAACP, Sharpton, Jackson, et.al.) do a lot of damage and that they don’t  further the cause of good relations. I am truly saddened by not only the killing and the trial, but also by the murders of the British tourists.  It is not right to raise hell about Trayvon Martin and not about those two guys (and anyone else victimized).  We should care about all victims, regardless of their color or race. I am so sad and disappointed.  Our country has a lot of problems.  The only real way to solve them is to have frank, honest discussions and let the chips fall where they may.  This requires folks who are courageous and have their feet firmly on the ground – in a word- AMERICANS. Please accept the fact that AMERICANS come in all sizes shapes and colors. I am a black man, but more than that, I am an American man.  We really have more in common than we think. Finally, let me say this: I understand the frustration of those white people who are tired of feeling like they get blamed for every bad thing that happens and get accused of being a racist if the state their opinions. There is no easy answer, but I encourage you to continue to state your case.  Your opinions are valid and important. There are black people who respect what you have to say and who do listen in a fair way ( I know it might not seem like).  I am one of those persons and I have a number of associates who not only are the same, but also are not afraid to say it.  Remember the courage part.  This is all a great struggle, but the greatness of America is our ability to overcome obstacles in order to achieve success.
      Thanks for reading my post.

  • ChrisFarrell2

    Where was Allen West when an enemy agent of Islam fraudulently represented himself as eligible to be president and criminally usurped the office of the president? Where was Allen West when lead detective of Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s volunteer Cold Case Posse Lieutenant Mike Zullo and Pastor Carl Gallups asked him to take a look at the evidence for Mr. Obama having committed the most sinister crime perpetrated against the American experiment in government of the people in American history? Mr. West responded to the request with words to the effect that he wasn’t touching the issue of Obama’s fraudulent usurpation of the presidency because doing so might negatively influence his political aspirations. Wartime hero Allen West has defined himself as a peacetime coward.
    Allen West literally cherry picked out of the arena of potential issues worthy of his attention the criminal usurpation of the presidency by an enemy agent of Islam practicing taqiyya when he told Commander of the Cold Case Posse Mike Zullo and Pastor Carl Gallups of ‘Freedom Friday with Carl Gallups’ that he would not put his future political aspirations at risk by even looking at the evidence for the criminal usurpation of the presidency by fraud.

      ChrisFarrell2 I have never, in my life, seen such an “off topic” response as this  ChrisFarrell2 you have a SERIOUS problem with HATE.  You are a “shoot from the hip” common, everyday malcontent.  I hate Obama too but it’s NOT Allen West’s fault. Your post suggests that Allen West is to blame for every wrong ever committed.  Get a grip.

      • JCanaanGreene

        MartiSettle ChrisFarrell2 That’s just silly.. his comment was to point out Alan Wests HYPOCRISY..  perhaps you missed the fact that he did exactly that.

  • Bill589

    The KKK has tried to cause racial division. Luckily, most ‘whites’ see them as the lying, hateful, jerks that they are.
    Sharpton, Jackson, NAACP and their ilk, also try to cause racial division.   Their jobs depend on it.  I hope most ‘blacks’ see them as the lying, hateful, jerks that they are.

    • bluerose3335

      Bill589 With all due respect Bill…are you serious?  Blacks eat this stuff up like Candy and live for this.  It is their mantra….no matter what they do they should be immune while the white man is a racist.  I am sorry Bill but to think that you need to want to learn and be educated.  Blacks for the most part play victims because that is the easy thing to do.  Where do you ever hear blacks defend Clarence Thomas or other prominent Conservative Blacks.  They are mocked mercilessly and they are BLACK.  Sorry Bill you wish is admirable but reality is what it is.  Blacks live in squalor for a reason, they commuit the majority of crimes for a reason, they are poor for a reason, they are the TRUE RACISTS for a reason and that is ENTITLEMENT.  They want everything given to them and the only path scum like Sharpton, Jackson and others use is to IMFLAME that lack of character and always cry wolf and blame the White Man.  Even here when Zimmerman is Hispanic.

      • NeoThinker

        Hey I’m black and disagree with your statement, while there are some blacks who are quick to pull the race card or follow the blind leadership of Sharpton and Jackson…both I personally believe to be useless..some of us young black men know what it means to view with unbiased eyes, and not make things solely about race. I try to learn things for myswlf as well as take responsibility for myself…Although, you generalized blacks in what now is your second post I’ve personally read…I will not assume to know you or generalize you or anyone like you. Yes it’s time for us all to see through the bull. This should not have gone to trail but let’s see this as a learning lesson. Instead of assuming lets together educate the uneducated…then the ignorance that is the new black panther party, NAACP, the kkk…they will all eventually cease to exist or that is my humble opinion

        • Caveman Jay

          NeoThinker Why do we generalize and stereotype.  Well, look at the reality Neo.  You sound like a fine young man.  But that’s not what we see in the streets rioting and breaking things up and setting fires.  The attitude we see on the streets from the average young black person is hate and racism.  You want to make a difference?  Talk to your brothers.

        • jrenai67

          NeoThinker    you shouldn’t read that as a blanket statement. Allen West is obviously a concerned American working for the betterment of society and so are many other blacks but for every Allen West there is a Van Jones- did you see that interview with he and Newt further down on the page, yes his is using his race to make blanket statements that are just incorrect and he is getting paid by CNN to do so.  Not going to help many black further themselves but will fill his pockets pretty well with a paycheck.

          It’s cute to think you know my opinions. I’m sorry if stupidity annoys you I just thought that I would share my opinion on the topic of NAACP…as for Zimmerman I believe he’s guilty but not because of race, simply because it could have been avoided and because I believe something’s within his story did not line up…i would define what I mean but I don’t have enough edumacation pal.

        • simonqx

          notanidiot NeoThinker Wow! Which evidence were YOU listening to?
          Zimmerman was never told NOT to follow… he was told he didn’t need to. And according to Zimmerman, at that point, he turned around and was heading back.

        • pete0097

          I agree.  I am told by the NAACP that I have to have guilt over past injustices.  What about past positives>  My ancestors HELPED runaway slaves escape to the north putting their own lives in danger.  They thought that it was the HUMAN thing to do.  Now, I don’t have a lot of war heroes in my family tree, just farmers so maybe I don’t have the “right” to feel that way, but without food, there are no war heroes.

        • Steve4101

          notanidiot You haven’t offered any proof otherwise. So why should anyone listen too you? Maybe if you tried listing facts ,instead of calling everyone who does’t agree with you a racist , people could take your comments a little more seriously.

        • criticalthinker9

          NeoThinker Thank you, I am white and disagree with most of this mess that is going on today. My folks where always poor tenant farmers and had nothing to do with the racism of the past. In order for all of us to get beyond this is to educate ourselves. Folk fear what they do not understand such as race, sex, heritage,etc… most people have learned to embrace the differences and are willing to learn of the different cultures. If those that feel repressed would just do as I did and make your life better by getting an education so that they have the ability to think for themselves and not allow others to form opinions for them.

      • jrenai67

        bluerose3335 Bill589 you couldn’t be more correct about many blacks that have been bred to repeat what they learned from others.  If I were black I would be mostly pissed at my own race for not being able to rise above the victim.  Not all black are weak but they know many that are.  The problem we now have as a society is that no race is standing up as a positive to set good examples for children to be able to better themselves by.  More and more black, whites are becoming bottom feeders

  • Tallgal83

    West is correct that the race pimps pick and choose what they want to focus on.  NAACP and the gang are desperately trying to stay relevant. They are really quiet over all those black children losing their lives in Chicago, and the many unsolved murder cases there.

  • ByronDZero

    Um…..there was nothing for them to defend!!!!

  • wodiej

    Thank you AW for speaking up.

  • bluerose3335

    What is the point.  Allen West you are an intelligent and gifted man.  However, does anyone think in this room anyone from NAACP cares about Whites being murdered or the murder rates of black on black?  Get real!  They want money and power and that only happens with division and constantly trying TO IMPLY their implicit need to the poor helpless blacks.  Why is there no NAAWP?  Lets have a GIGANTIC National Association for WHITE PEOPLE ADVANCEMENT and SHOVE IT IN THE BLACKS MINORITY FACE?  We owe them NOTHING..and it is high time the WEALTH AND NUMBERS CONTROLLED BY THE WHITE MAN tell the BLACK MAN to PAY FOR IT THEMSELVES….Money and Guilt train ends!

    • jrenai67

      bluerose3335 his point was exactly that.  Black’s and whites use race to point fingers and make themselves look and feel good about themselves. The presidents team of socialist needs the division to win elections and get more money and power.  Allen west said we need to get away from that.  His story of whites is there to expose the NAACP for the lies and greed that they are

      Why didn’t the Rev Jacksons and Sharptons protest when the jury of all women was selected?.

  • Atlanta-Esquire

    Allen West tells it truthfully. and what is the point- bluerose- we are all Americans. Not black, white, brown, etc., Americans- but simply Americans.

      • James Star

        notanidiot Atlanta-Esquire May not be the world we live in but sure as heck should be! And if the blacks wanted to be that way, they would drop the “African” and just be American. But being realistic, I don’t think thats going to happen.

  • Miamimillie

    NAACP stirring the pot again and cause trouble and racial division, what’s new!  Please, give up that Bl**k card already! It’s gotten way old!! Going backwards….back to slaver

    • DennisRozier

      Miamimillie My question is this.  Why doesn’t the NAACP fight for asian, hispanics, american indians….etc.  Their same says “colored” people.  That includes more than just black.

      • Miamimillie

        DennisRozier Miamimillie “CP” yeah should be for Colored People, but in their language it just means “BLACK” people.  Should have been NAABP!!

      • JDWayne

        DennisRozier Yes, if they were truly an ally for all people of color, they should have stayed completely out of this mess since George Zimmerman fell squarely into the category of people that the NAACP is supposedly standing up for. Did he not have a right to defend himself from a 17 year old that was physically bigger than he. And let’s all get over referring to Trayvon as a child, I was married and had a full time job at 17.

    • notanidiot

      Miamimillie Uh no, I think the trouble was caused by a white guy murdering a black kid who was armed with a soda and some HoHo’s.  The racial division is the justice the white murdering racist received from a florida jury.
      By what logic do you make your comments?  My guess is that you were asleep when logic was handed out and you filled up on stupidity instead.

      • simonqx

        notanidiot Miamimillie It’s amazing how many people equate “justice” with “guilty”

      • Miamimillie

        notanidiot Miamimillie This was not about  or currently is, about any type of logic or heart felt emotions.  Wake up!  All it was, a “Self Defense” case that certain people in their ignorance choose to use as a distraction to continue racial entitlements.  I don’t know why people just don’t see it…just saying.  Besides, was not a white man, but a hispanic (minority) man.

        • James Star

          Miamimillie notanidiot True, but some people only see in black and white! And this man will be a target for someone or something the rest of his life. And God forbid if he should be killed by a black person, I wonder who will get the so called justice then? Its a sad, sad situation. Especially to give up your humanity for votes!

      • LauraLemieux

        notanidiot Miamimillienotanidiot Wait? A white guy killed Martin? When did this happen? I thought that another minority killed him. Maybe I missed something?And I’m pretty sure that Martin was also armed with two fists.

      • PAFFLynn

        notanidiot Miamimillie  Armed with fists, concrete and grabbing for a gun.  Plus armed with anger and intent.  The soda and skittles were just the makings of his “purple drank.”

      I agree. 
      It’s the content of character that is important – not how someone looks. How somebody looks is a stupid way to divide people.

  • JohnRickBaker

    Allen West shoots from the “Hip.”  The NAACP is only concern in promoting their own agenda of social values !  They will galvanize their “Black” agenda, when it fits their mission !  Their mission is to keep White-America, in the apologetic Mode.  Allen West, is one straight forward American, that I would follow to the end !

    • notanidiot

      JohnRickBaker Dear Skippy, When was the last time you’ve heard of a white guy was hung from a tree until dead because he was white?  When is the last time you heard of a white guy who was denied the use of a bathroom or drinking fountain because he was white?  when was the last time you heard of a white guy being hung  because he looked at a black woman?
      Maybe if you could answer those simple questions you’d have the answer to your ignorant post.  You seem to be in the denial mode of the past actions of whites on blacks/  I would like to answer your idiotic post with rather stringent language but I’m afraid the mod might think I was being disrespectful towards you.  It actually would be difficult for me to express my disrespect and contempt for you  by using respectful words.  UFIAH

      • Lady_Penquin

        notanidiot JohnRickBaker I must be missing something in Baker’s comment, because “nad” I didn’t see him mention any of the items you’ve just brought to the table or introduce in your comment. 
        In modern America today, none of what you mentioned is happening. Many of us believe similarly to Baker that it IS the NAACP’s mission to keep us in the apologetic mode. It’s also about reparations and extortion. 
        BTW, IMHO, the Zimmerman case was used by Obama and his admin to stir the racial pot of animosity to gin up votes in the “swing” state of Florida for the 2012 election. 
        Furthermore, not only is this providing a “distraction,” keeping Obama’s IRS, NSA, DOJ and #Benghazi scandals off the front page, it is being used to provide an outlet for the festering frustration the American people have being unemployed, underemployed, on food stamps and other gov. assist, losing their houses, being in huge debt, and all the while paying double the prices for food, gas and other necessities than we all were 4 years ago – the result of Democrat policies.

        • BrendaGabbard

          Lady_Penquin notanidiot JohnRickBaker Lady, you are absolutely correct.  It is also a method to insure Black people will perdominately vote for the Dems next election.  Due to the influence of West, Carson and other black Americans, many blacks were starting to ease away from Obama and his communist message.  They were also starting to think for themselves.  O and his minions couldn’t let that happen sooooo wahlah, enter the trumped up case against George Zimmerman.

      • 4Dees

        notanidiot JohnRickBaker  
        notanidiot…………you missed the point that you so clearly made in your argument…..”The Past”.  The Past is the Past, and for those like you who can’t seem to get beyond it and move on just fall prey to the trap that people like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder, Obama, Nancy Pelosi and others love for you to be caught in.  By continuing on in The Past, you enable these people to control and manipulate your life, which they seem to be doing a great job of right now.

      • LauraLemieux

        notanidiot JohnRickBaker Weird that your name is Notanidiot when you clearly are. Blacks were hanged over one hundred years ago. So it seems you’re the ignorant one. Did you not listen to the video? The NAACP is clearing ignoring other cases, including ones where blacks kills blacks–isn’t that equally as terrible? What are they doing about that? Why aren’t they encouraging peace in inner cities rather than trying to create division among blacks and whites? What true good has the NAACP recently done? Any small victories are grossly outweighed by their public stunts that attempt to divide the races and incite anger towards whites among black people. 
        I live in a neighborhood that is part white and part black. When I go out to ride my bike, I’ve been called “cracker” on numerous occasions by black people. Will you call that racist or will you call it some kind of justified anger because of what their ancestor’s ancestors went through? I don’t think I deserve to be called that, especially when I always offer them (and everyone else) a friendly wave as I approach. What you’re doing is victimizing black people and holding them down as a group. It’s not helpful to the peace of the country. Unity is what we need–not political pandering by groups like the NAACP or individuals like yourself.

        notanidiot JohnRickBaker That was then; this is now.   Past offenses do not justify the persecution of a man by the name of Zimmerman.  It also doesn’t justify black on white crime of today.  Past actions do not justify the continued criminal actions and bad behavior.of of groups of black people in the US.  None of us can blame other people for our own actions.  We, all of us must accept the responsibility for ourselves.  As I see it, the sort of language you engage in is exactly the sort used by black people to justify their violent criminal behavior.

  • Bill589

    I copied this from my journal because it seems to fit here:
    Excerpt from  “The Adventures of Willy and Billy”
    Our first scheme –
    Our mothers used to love to walk and talk along these ‘wagon trails’ through the woods around and in-between our houses. One of my first memories is when Willy and I were probably still in diapers. We used to play a game of getting our mothers to carry us on their shoulders while they walked. I can still see him over on his mother’s shoulders smiling over at me on mine.
    I’ll skip ahead in our adventures to get to the point. . . .
    In fourth grade, we learned at school that Willy and I were different. Very different.  He’s supposedly black, and I’m supposedly white.
    For one thing, we knew they were wrong right off because Willy is brown and gold (he used to bend backwards and push his stomach out – and he was a beautiful gold), and I was kind of a tan color.   Darker in summer. Lighter in winter.
    Our parents set us straight though.   How somebody looks is a stupid way to separate people.

    • PAFFLynn

      Bill589  You know it is funny, I had a good friend in the ’70s and another in the ’90s who were black.  Back then we never talked about color, it just didn’t come up.  Guess those days are gone.  Their leaders want segregation now, and war.

    notanidiot Mr. NOTANIDIOT – When is the last time any of us heard of a black man being hung from a tree, when is the last time any of us heard of people being denied use of facilities (as you’ve described), when is the last time….?  Your articulation of your points is commendable, but that doesn’t make them correct or applicable.  Not in a society that desires to be equal, and I assume that is all you really want, to be treated equally.  I totally get it.  And while remembering egregious acts from the past serve us well when considering future decisions, it does not mean we should live daily on said examples.  In some of your posts, you have ascribed to condescension, defining people by race, calling those who do not agree with you names, etc.  You are doing exactly what you say you want to eliminate.  I believe you are intelligent enough to see the point.
    As a white male, I will never have the societal experiences that you may have had, be it racism, stereotyped, feared, or whatever, based solely upon the color of your skin. However, I have been taunted, cornered, been in the wrong place (I was told so), based on the color of MY skin.  Oh wait, isn’t that the same thing?  But I digress.
    I would like to ask an honest question:  You have been given (for the context of the discussion here), by supreme authority, the ability to teach us all how to get beyond racism.  Please lay out your plan to do so.  I am genuinely interested in your perspective.

    Well it seems to work.  Call someone a name and someone else will call another name. Marines hate Navy, A.F. hates Army,  Navy hat A.

IN THAT CASE YOU BETTER WATCH OUT FOR THE “WE THE PEOPLE”  BECAUSE WE ARE SICK OF YOUR INFANTILE ATTITUDES. GROW UP AND BECOME AN AMERICAN CITIZEN WE CAN ALL STAND TOGETHER WITH.

  • Vrmithrax

    The title question is really a no-brainer, if you stop to think about it.  It’s the NAACP.  National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.  Key word is “Advancement” there.  The NAACP would not jump in on a topic that would hurt the image of black teenagers, it’s contradictory to their agenda.
    As for the media, it’s all a social engineering game.  To maintain general population interest in racism, you need to have an aggressor and a victim.  Racism only works if the aggressors and victims are consistently the same demographics.  It’s a typical double-standard that applies throughout the news.  Every day, white people are killed by white people, and it maybe hits the local news briefly.  Every day black people kill black people, and it maybe hits the local news briefly (and is often implicated as “gang related” even when it’s not).  Every day black people kill white people, and it makes local news only.  See where I’m going with this?  It’s only when you can pick out a particular crime, one that may not even be as heinous and dramatic as the other 2000 that happened that day, but one that can be used to fan the flames of racism and maybe cause divisions, that is the one that gets picked up nationally.  Because it’s sensational, or can be sensationalized until everyone has an opinion on it.  Racism is a wonderful political distraction mechanism to keep us cattle from paying attention to the other much more important things going on nationally and internationally.  And it sickens me to hear people touting “equality” and “an end to racism” while continually fanning the flames with their comments and actions.
    Let’s face it, racism is perpetuated to keep us from getting along and determining that we are more alike than different.  Ironically, it is often perpetuated by people who despise racism, but have been taught to watch for it everywhere.  The world is full of double standards where race is concerned, which basically guarantees that racism will never end.  Seriously, if there was a White Entertainment Television channel, or a WhitePeopleMeet.com site, those would be quickly driven out of business under massive “racism” protests, yet BET exists and BlackPeopleMeet.com is advertised every day on cable.  Nothing wrong with that channel or website, but it’s a prime example of the double standards that permeate our culture and continue to foster racism.  We can’t collectively heal and eliminate our differences as long as those exist, and politically driven organizations that selectively promote our differences (like the NAACP) are front and center in the media.

    • RichardCerqueira

      Very well put.

    • BrendaGabbard

      Vrmithrax This is a well know ploy of Communists.  They use it to divide populations pitting one group against the other using propaganda.  They then send agents into the group they are then able to control and indoctrinate them.  They have been doing this for many years with American blacks.  When blacks will speak honestly all you hear is communistic newspeak from them.  Most have lost the ability to think for themselves.  It’s a shame because they are the loosers and the Communists such as Jackson and Sharpton are the winners.  The NAACP and the ACLU were infiltrated by Communist organizers long ago.  They are it’s tools.

    • oldgringo

      Vrmithrax Exactly…And this is the diversion Erik Holder is now applying…Demoaning “stand your ground” laws when this law was not even applied in the Zimmerman trial…Perhaps Holder doesn’t read the paper daily like our president does…”Hey…I just heard it on the news…Same as you!”…Yeah…Right!

      • BrendaGabbard

        oldgringo Vrmithrax Holder and others will keep up the heat simply because the Zimmerman thing was successful in that it distracted Americans from some very important issue.  Just recently a member of congress was complaining because their phone wasn’t ringing offf the hook with comments on important issues.  So, you see Holder and his thugs were successful so they will continue the same tactics.  
        People, don’t let them win.  The media are their tools and they know how to use them.  If you ignore their propaganda and refuse to be distracted by it they will not win.  Get on the phone, e-mail, and write your reps letting them know you are paying attention.  Yes, pay some attention to the Holders but, don’t let this garbage dominate you life and consume you time.  
        Look up the current important measures being considered and get on the phone.

        • oldgringo

          BrendaGabbard oldgringo Vrmithrax We now learn that Florida blacks have used the “stand my ground” law 55% more than whites who have used this same law to justify using a weapon as a means of self defense…Take away this law and blacks will suffer tremendously for it…With more Trayvon Martin’s banging on the doors of a Morgue than there are coffins within!

    The
    ” NAACP ” causes almost as much bias and or prejudice as they try to
    prevent… When you create and or support a specialty group(s) that
    defends the idea of color barriers being an appropriate way of
    identifying a victim(s) – You inadvertently or not, promote Prejudice..I
    am thinking that the ignorance the NAACP has demonstrated while
    professing to be righteous is only a ploy to enrage its supporters which
    in turn brings the media to their door step – free marketing ( more
    monies )… Its all very sad…

    • jamgrae

      jodlen What is very sad is your mentioning the NAACP in that light.       Your interpretation of this prominent civil rights group is similar to the one the Ku Klux Klan has about them.       Anytime people stand up for their rights there are always those who attempt to use circular logic to try to discredit them.
      I can only hope you READ more about the history of the NAACP and their LONG standing fight of the racism and brutality against African Americans in this country.

      • DAY8293A

        jamgrae jodlen The NAACP is just as bad as the KKK… the KKK stood up for whites,and the NAACP stands up for blacks,,,  They both need to shut up. When you can have a NAACP and we can’t have a NAAWP,   that is racism. You blacks have had hand outs and “quota blacks” in hiring for so long, you think you deserve it.   After looking at Martin’s girl friend in the Zimmerman trial,(who turns out to have a black great grand father) we can see what the NAACP has done for blacks,,, turned them back into jungle dwellers that can’t speak the English language. Fifty years of free food, the save education as whites, and quotas in hiring is enough for any “intelligent” race.  If you claim to be equal to whites, then it is  time to end affirmative action.

        • JDWayne

          jamgrae The NAACP is the same as the labor unions. There was great need for them in the past, but not so much any more. They are all about nothing other than making money, and lots of it. In this day and age, they are always trying to create and promote racial problems, if they didn’t they would not still be in business.

          DAY8293A jamgrae jodlen Well said…Problem is the Democrats don’t see it that way…They want the black vote…Not black justice!

        • BrendaGabbard

          oldgringo DAY8293A jamgrae jodlen  When will young black people wake up and realize that the Democrats do care about them.   Exactly what has it done for them except, make them more dependent on just enough of a hand-out to barely survive?  Where are the jobs?  Where is additional law enforcement to help black women and children stay safe in their homes?  What has Obama done to break up the violent gangs in Chicago?

      • PAFFLynn

        jamgrae jodlen   The new black panther party is the black version of the KKK.  But they operate in the open.  It’s not OK to declare war on everyone, period.  It’s not OK to call for violence, period.  They are a hate group, period.

      • mommabear123

        jamgrae jodlen the naacp is just as bad as the klan . people wake up there are still so many hate groups out there . on both sides i live int he deep south the klan is not around but other groups are . just like the naacp and the new black panthers all are the same just different skin colors

  • RalphMalachiasGaskin

    One standard, One people. Period! Stop dividing each other by race.

      RalphMalachiasGaskin Tell this to the news media and MSNBC and CNN!

  • AntuanDevelleClaude

    The young man threw his life away. I raise my boys to understand that every physical confrontation is possibly life threatening, so avoid one at all cost. You have to be smart, either you be the judge or someone else will.

  • PAFFLynn

    We need to call for an immediate investigation of the civil rights violations being committed against non-blacks.
    We are tired of being terrorized nationwide with violence and threats of violence if we do not submit to the demands of hate groups.

    • oldgringo

      PAFFLynn Good point…It’s not just blacks who have civil rights…We all do!

    • James Star

      PAFFLynn Kind of hard to do when DOJ Holder makes a statement asin the Black Panthers intimidation at that voting place,calls them “His people”. I thought we ALL should be his people! Seems someone wants us all to be at each others throats, you think? “Divide and conquer!”?

      • PAFFLynn

        James Star PAFFLynn   I agree, and that’s kind of my point.  We need to call them on it and make it a point.   We should not submit to terrorists.  Even the Patriot Act could be put to use here.  We are being terrorized on a national scope.  According to the Patriot Act, domestic terrorism is defined as an act of
        violence that is intended to “intimidate or coerce a civilian population, to
        influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion or to affect
        the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping.”

  • mt name is cathy

    I pressed 2 “likes” and it went to “unlike”!!!  What’s going on here?  Can someone let me know?  I stopped voting because of this.

    • oldgringo

      mt name is cathy Same just happened with me…I pushed 1 like for your comment and got nothing…I pushed again and got 1 unlike…This system needs to be looked at!

    • BrendaGabbard

      mt name is cathy Probably a glitch in the system.

    • James Star

      mt name is cathy Cathy, when you click the like button twice it cancels your like and changes it to unlike.  The reason being its a way to change your mind about your vote. Hope this helps..

  • James Star

    I will admit some whites are racist, but there are also black racist which they will not admit.

    • ClifftonBedford

      James Star there are alot of ignorant blacks and at any given moment we might say anything and the black lynch mob well thats a rap group we dont have any klan groups the hate of another race has to be taught maybe a black parent or two does this racism is not taught in the black household not hate the other race but love your own race and that can be racism in a sense but its not lynching and burning crosses in peoples yards those things arent done any more but you james you know that black will never come close to that the closest we will come to a hate group is the nation of islam who now has white and hispanic members there has to be a collective effort for us to go that route itll never happen and james you cant call out a black racist by name or group can you who where are they

      • truckfarmer

        ClifftonBedford James Star 
        One group that immediately springs to mind is the New Black Panthers, not to mention most of the predominantly-black churches, the Congressional BLACK Caucus, BLACK Entertainment Television, the Black Miss America Pageant, ad infinitum.  See how that works,  I could go on but perhaps you get my point.  To understand that modern black culture is in general a mess does not make me a racist, simply a person who is not in the slightest interested in political correctness.  If such were not the case, why would people like Bill Cosby make impassioned speeches proclaiming the same thing?  When successful black people like Allen West, Clarence Thomas, Michael Steele, and others are vilified by most of black society simply because they do not hold the same political beliefs as many other blacks do, there is a systemic problem with the culture.

        ClifftonBedford James Star Wow!  Is this the way you talk without a break in your words? No commas or periods on your keyboard? You  must be one of the above that you described as ignorant!

      • mommabear123

        ClifftonBedford James Star  the new black panther party ..hate group through and through. oh and the klan disappeared along time ago.

  • KJLaBona

    Some excellent comments. News media people are interested in only one thing: selling advertisements. (Used to be called “pitching soap” after the original soap operas on radio.) If something occurs that can be blown totally out of proportion (i.e.: The Duke lacrosse “scandal”) they will. social Justice be damned!  Advertising rates went through the roof then & again with the latest “outrage”> Ask yourself this: Would this tragedy have generated 1/10 the publicity had it involved 2 blacks or 2 whites? Of course not!
    Another interesting point: When was the last time a Black man identified himself as “Colored”? The NAACP is as outdated as hoop skirts. Use that power & influence to promote racial unity! We will always have racists with us; it’s the nature of that type of mindset to look for someone to lessen so they themselves feel better. We will also have child molesters, rapists, murderers, etc. Society cannot eliminate crime; all they can do is isolate the criminal, race notwithstanding
    A pleasure to read all the comments & see how many people actually Care ABOUT THIS COUNTRY’S FUTURE..

  • FreddyDiGuglielmo

    Are Whites REALLY Racist, Or maybe it is that we are sick and tired of the shit that the Government makes us all pay for to breed!!!!
    These Ghettos are nothing more than  scientific Petrie dishes, where the virus has escaped from!!
     Maybe it’s time to stop the spread of the disease??!!  Wonder if Ortho corporation could make “Homie B Gone”??!!
    OOOOOOH LOOK..  HE’S A RACIST!!!!

    • ClifftonBedford

      FreddyDiGuglielmo  only racist people make make racist comments when black people start klan groups and white people start getting harassed by blacks due to us stereotyping innocent teens because they dress a certain way then you can call us racist wanting justice is not racist all white people are not racist the majority of whites arent that said white people stereotype blacks as being criminals or thugs etc blacks stereotype white people as being racist klansmen this is a fact like you what am i to make of your racist post a good white person or klan member good white people wouldnt say what you said by the way my ghetto is filled with hispanics what racist comment you got for them

  • backspace4237

    The unfortunate death of Trayvon Martin has given the Administration the event the desperately needed to divert public attention  away from them and the growing list of scandals which have enveloped almost every functional group of Obama’s corrupt regime. The number of increased and growing black on white attacks  daily without any major media outlet covering any of the cases is more than disconcerting. One has to wonder just how much longer this nation’s vast white majority will remain tolerant of accusations of racism when they long ago realized that the black race in America are the true racists. Pity that the NAACP, Jesse Jackson, Reverend Al Charlatan, Al Sharpton that is, are adept at race baiters who make a living at the expense of national unity and depressing their own race.

  • bayman55

    Bravo sir, bravo. They do not even consider any of the cases of horrible black violence against any whites because it does not suit their cause. They pick and choose and should be ashamed of themselves for doing so.

  • bayman55

    If it was not for his views on illegals in America(he says they should be allowed to stay) I would vote for this man to be President. It would be a big difference to have someone that is educated and has served HIS country.
