I am attacking his message. Apparently he has no fucking clue what a lynching means. As for you, get off your high horse.

Don't you get it Stebben. The kid that died is much better off than the adult who is alive and not in jail.

Best to just leave them to their sandbox, because this forum isn't, and has never been moderated for trollish behavior.
I'm confused, Sandi. You said that because George Zimmerman helped a homeless black man, he wasn't a racist. And since you are supporting a progressive liberal who voted for Obama, Zimmerman, that means you aren't biased against progressives.

Yet here you are openly proving your point was rubbish...

The person who runs the nation's largest stop-and-frisk operation in NYC has received high praise from the Commander-in-Chief as a potential new head of Homeland Security?

Perhaps you are confused because you put words in my mouth that I did not say.

However wouldn't it be easier to address the issue of the topic. Twisting words that you don't agree with is trollish.

Sandi,
This thread is very long and, well, annoying.
Would you please re-state 'your' relevant point - that you think was overlooked?
I have said it before, and I still believe it, that you have good to contribute here.

She's right.

I just went over her comments on this topic and she didn't make any point at all. She was mostly writing remarks about what other people were saying to one another.

So, nothing was overlooked.

Actually I do, unfortunately. Here's what you said/posted...
Sandi wrote:For your information, Zimmerman fought the Sanford Police dept to help a black teen who was beaten by a Sanford Police white officers son.

As a racist would Zimmerman launch a campaign to help a homeless black man who was beaten up by a white kid?

Zimmerman's voter registration record lists him as Hispanic and a registered Democrat.

George Zimmerman accused the Sanford police department of corruption more than a year before he shot Trayvon Martin, saying at a public forum the agency covered up the beating of a black homeless man by the son of a white officer.

... Zimmerman not a racist, and has Afro-Peruvian roots.

He had a black business partner that he opened an insurance office with in a Florida, and launched a campaign to help a homeless black man who was beaten up by a white kid.

He took a black girl to his high-school prom.

Has black relatives, reportedly donated his time to tutor black children

Doesn't sound like racism to me.

Zimmerman was not a racist. He is a liberal who voted for Obama.
here's what I said you said...

perhaps the best answer to your dishonesty comes from you...

As my grandmother always said: "Figures don't lie, but liars figure."

Wow! Talk about throwing stones from glass houses.

Zimmerman pulled over for a traffic violation in Texas. Of course, he had a firearm - but that might be required in the Lone Star State.

I don't have much good to say about the guy but in this case I do not disapprove. I think it's sensible for him to go around armed pretty much 24 7 these days.
