    Great strategy the world will learn a lesson

    Yeah that 72hrs announcement doesn't sound good. Honestly if he doesn't get charged I hope that instead of tearin shit up, which will only confirm in the eyes of already racists and on the fencers what they've thought all along, we realize we need a new game plan. Burnin shit down hasn't worked for quite some time now.

    Do yall think the riots in '91 or '92 did anything positive? I mean they burnt down Korean owned businesses not black businesses and the attitude of whites in California did change. I don't know, a part of me thinks it makes us look bad but on the other hand, hasn't violence always gone hand in hand with change? How else can you get the government to listen, by talking and petitions? I really wanna know how people feel about this.

    So since that isn't working anymore - why are some black people pushing this new agenda to take it to innocent white people in the suburbs or burning down white owned business entities....just WTF is that gonna prove? When are the so-called black politicians and others gonna take a stand against all this violent retribution? WTF is it with the CDC telling folks to GO TO HELL & they aren't called on it - don't tell ME that black folks don't live by another set of rules...BULL SHIT!!!

    If there's any riot then that shows stupidity, weakness and immaturity. What sense does it make to riot and blame white people? Zimmerman doesn't even look white, he isn't white, he is Hispanic and his family considers him this.

    I agree with what you're saying. Sometime it does seem like you gotta tear some shit up. The problem with that though is doesn't solve the root of the problem. See we're not talking about the majority of the country tearing shit up and fighting the gov as a collective like how they're poppin off in the middle east. Instead this will be another case of "niggers acting like animals" which in turn will make the racists assholes feel even more justified and as I said above sway some on the fencers.

    Fuck a riot, and some marches. Silence is golden. The best change we can make would be to get our shit together in our own communities. Quit killin each other and doing worldstar type shit. We will never get anywhere as a people otherwise.

    Again, I know I feel like tearin up some shit outta pure frustration and disgust for the american judicial system, but at the same time it's gettin us nowhere.

    you just have to be sure that black people don't react in a way that confirms stereotypes that could cause other blacks to be stereotyped at some point in the future. I don't know what blacks should do, but it should be obvious what they shouldn't do...its not like fighting for civil rights, where there is a clear goal that they are trying to achieve. If there is not evidence to charge zimmerman, the rioting and what not is not going to cause evidence to magically appear or change anyone's minds. You can put pressure on governments to make changes in policies that discriminate, but that is completely different than trying to get a municipality to make an arrest and for a jury to convict.

    @gorilla that's a good point about being a collective entity. But stuff like this spreads. You see they were having rallies everywhere. But I agree it always turns into "see, look at those niggas tearing shit up again" instead of actually fixing anything.

    @matt I agree, I think any riots or protests should be directed at changing these fucked up biased laws that don't protect the people that need it. Not so much arresting Zimmerman as much as I want that too.

    Oh please.. His father is white and mother is hispanic. They are considering him hispanic due to the media situation. Some white hispanics, do consider themselves, *gasps* white.

    Supposedly he considers himself Hispanic on his voting registration and DL, so he's Hispanic.

    Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey plans to announce as early as Wednesday afternoon that she is charging neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, according to a law enforcement official close to the investigation.

    It was not immediately clear what charge Zimmerman will face.

    Word. I remember in HS all of a sudden Pedro became Peter & Jorge became George. A lot of Hispanics consider themselves white.

    addition to several trademark filings including Trayvon Martin’s name, government officials have received one application seeking to capitalize on the name of the gunman who shot to death the Florida teenager.

    On March 30, a San Francisco businessman submitted an online application to trademark the phrase “I Believe You Zimmerman.” According to United States Patent and Trademark Office records, Lawrence Sekara paid $1100 to apply for the mark for use in four separate classes.

    The 49-year-old Sekara, pictured above, wants to place “I Believe You Zimmerman” on a wide variety of merchandise, including beer mugs, bumper stickers, leggings, footwear, “Button-front aloha shirts,” and other assorted apparel.

    In an interview, Sekara, owner of Corporate Fulfillment Services, declined to discuss what products he planned to market, saying that he wanted to “keep that under wraps” until a related web site--ibelieveyouzimmerman.com--launches in a couple of weeks. He registered the domain on the same day he made his online USPTO filing.

    Sekara, who said that he has invested $5000 in his fledgling business, acknowledged that while he has had no contact with George Zimmerman, he planned to share some of the “I Believe You Zimmerman” proceeds with the neighborhood watch captain, pictured at left, who killed Martin on February 26 in Sanford, Florida.

    Noting that members of the public have “jumped to too many conclusions” about the shooting, Sekara said that he was not concerned about being criticized for seeking to profit from the case.

    Voluntary manslaughter would be almost a gimme here.

    She's trying too hard. If she pulls this off, she's a beast of an attorney. If she fucks this up, this shit is worse than the Casey Anthony trial.

    Glad Zimmerman got charged with murder today......big props to the special prosecutor, the KKK doesn't have as strong a hold on Florida as I thought. There better be a conviction though......

    Rodney King: ‘I am grieving’ for Trayvon Martin

    When Rodney King learned of the killing of unarmed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin by a neighborhood watch volunteer, the news triggered a flashback.

    “The horrifying sound of a young black male screaming for his life on a 911 call reminded me of my horrifying scream on a videotape 20 years ago,” King, 46, said in a statement released Wednesday by his publicist.

    "At that time, I thought I was going to die. Very, very gratefully, I survived.  Unfortunately, Trayvon Martin did not."

    It remains unclear -- and a matter of debate -- whether the voice in the background of the Florida 911 call is that of Martin screaming, or George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who was taken into custody Wednesday on suspicion of second-degree murder.

    King became a household name after he was beaten in 1991 by four police officers in an incident that was videotaped by George Holliday, who was awakened by helicopters hovering over his Lake View Terrace apartment and decided to try out his new camcorder. The officers were acquitted in 1992, igniting several days of rioting in Los Angeles. April 29 marks the 20-year anniversary of the unrest, which claimed more than 50 lives and caused millions of dollars in property damage.
