DustOff's right, willgrr.

You're trying to keep the pot simmering instead of trying to find a better way. Didn't you read/listen to the president's speech?

Garr do you realize Zimmerman is half white and half hispanic? Obama is half white and half black?

Martin is 100% black.. Now who is closer to being like Zimmerman? Obama is.. Yet he only claims his black half.. OBVIOUSLY!!

I for one am really tired of the blacks, african americans, or whatever their buzzword of the day is coming out and saying black is racist.. If black is racist then so is white. I don't want to be called white I want to be called English as that is where my background comes from.. I want to be an English American and anyone that calls me white is a raciest... From now on if anyone says I am a white guy I am going to call that person a racist..

Garr see how fing dumb that sounds???? Black is black.. White is white and you are a instigator.. A race baiter..

Enough with the crying wilgarr. I guess thats where you got the nickname weepee..

Your white brethren are right. Obama threw gasoline on the fire.. but what else could you expect from the ignorant person he is?

Hes still out trying to be a community organizer and he has no clue what the POTUS is suppose to do. Hes down here in the gutter crawling around trying to stir up the blacks..

Why don't all the blacks just leave their sports teams in protest? Then we could shut down football and basketball big time..

Hows that folks.. Just tell all the blacks to forfeit their income and leave those nasty old sports teams..

Actually I think Obama's little speech yesterday showed the world what Obama and his people are like.

He talked about how radical they are yet he has not done one thing to come to their cause.

They figured once he became POTUS that they would own the country and tromp it into the ground. They are not intelligent enough to realize what a Democracy is.

Until the become educated and clean up their culture they will always be right down where they are. Their fate is in their own hands and they are too bullheaded to take the lead and solve their problems..

Some can make it others won't even try.. Welfare and the gutter are such an easy road and they don't involve responsibility or work.

rac·ism (rszm) n. 1. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others. 2. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.

So the Protesters which are mainly black are racist because they are discriminating against the Justice system and Zimmerman which is not even white but rather hispanic.

So the blacks are prejudice against the Hispanics?

I know blacks hate Mexicans because Mexicans come here to work and take the jobs from the black folks.

So blacks are racist against the Mexicans.. because...The *****es love to assault mexicans because they know that they are illegal and fear to call the police. And they know that the illegals don't have banking account, so many of the mexicans carry money in their pocket.

And thats why the Mexicans now have gangs..

More from The Lil "o"

“We refused to throw in the towel and do nothing. We refused to let Detroit go bankrupt. We bet on American workers and American ingenuity, and three years later, that bet is paying off in a big way.”

-- President Obama in his weekly address, Oct. 13, 2012.

See how dumb this guy really is? He knows zip and yet runs off at the mouth about how well he has done.. Just another lie from the liar in charge.

While the president is engaging young singles in the cities with promises of free contraceptives, liberal social policies and global warming curbs, the old unions who made the Democratic Party great are left to crumble like Detroit’s streets and sidewalks.

Seems Obama talks out both sides his mouth. He is here for the blacks yet he is not here for the blacks.. Typical Obama style leader****.

Just the fact that all the blacks are out in protest of the American Justice System today shows why they will never make it in todays America.

They are unwilling to accept our laws, they are unwilling to accept our justice system and many of them refuse to go to school and become educated.. They fill our prisons and are leaders in the country for shootings and killings.

Some can clear their brain and make it in America but over 1/2 the blacks do not except our way of life.

Maybe free transportation back to their native country is the only answer.

I don't know how this Country can do any more for them if they don't want to live by our laws and our justice system.

And Obama speaking today, he should just shut his mouth. I thought when we went to vegas, my son was 13 or 14, I was in my late twenties. We walk to the car. 5 or 6 older boys asked my son, whats in the bag, he said new shoes. I said son get in the car, lock the doors, your dad will be out soon. I stood there, and they threatened me, my husband walked up and they ran like chicken littles. Times have not changed. I am dang neer 60. Thank You for your great explaination of whats happening Obama.

Dustoff, my Premiums did go up a little. BCBS is fine. People are using Obama care to sell stuff. Although, later and on Medicare and Suppliments, it's harder to figure. All the laws are not in place.

Crystal Scott, a 23 year old black woman, felt she needed to defend herself because she felt her life was in danger. It started with a minor crash involving Ms. Scott and Jonathan Ables, a 22 year old white male. Crystal was on her normal commute to work when the accident occurred but the damage was minimal. They pulled into a nearby Shell station to assess the situation when things turned from bad to worse. According to Crystal, Jonathan exited his truck and approached her vehicle, hitting the door while trying to open it. Crystal also claims Jonathan was yelling at her during this time. She pulled out her firearm and fired through the drivers window striking Jonathan in the chest. He was pronounced dead on the scene as a result from a single gun shot wound.

So She is going to use the stand your ground law at her trial.. Problem is she was in a car with doors that lock I assume and keys in ignition and the ability to retreat..

Hummm wonder how much TV time her trial will get..

I can remember way way back when the President of the United States and the Legislative branch use to take their time to promote Peace and deal with wars and other issues..

Today our President has beer summits, racial speeches, interferes in women's rights, abortion,*****s gays and education.. All the state issues are now being taken over and made the daily issue with the POTUS. Its called micro management..

Time for the POTUS to run the country and buttt the*****out of family buisness.

will garr If it were the other way around Martin would have had lawyers to select the jury and they would have had their day in court.

What would the jury have decided?

We have this thing called a Justice System.. We have these things called courts.. we also have laws.. that regulate what can and cannot be used in court.

So TV would never have been in play if Martin had killed Zimmerman because the whites would have not marched and demanded an arrest.

The Blacks demanded a trial.. They got it and now they are like all Democrats.. rioting and crying all over themselves..

"You know, I’m not naive about the prospects of some brand-new federal program. I’m not sure that that’s what we’re talking about here. But I do recognize that as president, I’ve got some convening power.

"And there are a lot of good programs that are being done across the country on this front. And for us to be able to gather together business leaders and local elected officials and clergy and celebrities and athletes and figure out how are we doing a better job helping young African-American men feel that they’re a full part of this society and that — and that they’ve got pathways and avenues to succeed — you know, I think that would be a pretty good outcome from what was obviously a tragic situation. And we’re going to spend some time working on that and thinking about that."

Fathers and mothers are the first point of contact for any young boy/man. I hope the president will have room for them as well in future conversations.

In Pres. Obama's remarks, I saw statements about understanding the plight of young African-American males, but I didn't see statements about encouraging fathers & mothers to be there for their sons.

"...this is a long-term project: We need to spend some time in thinking about how do we bolster and reinforce our African-American boys? And this is something that Michelle and I talk a lot about. There are a lot of kids out there who need help who are getting a lot of negative reinforcement. And is there more that we can do to give them the sense that their country cares about them and values them and is willing to invest in them?"
