    Yes now they say that but you would not have believed that by all the posting here and on other boards. Many assumed he was a RWNJ and someone even referred to the state as "white Republican trailer trash." Doesn't help the situation and his poor mother and father still have lost their son.

    Yep, Trayvon Martin is dead, but Zimmerman is still walking around.

Those on the right want to claim they're fanning the flames of racism. But, if you look at the movement, it's not about race. It's about justice. I won't go so far as to say it's racism motivating the righties. I think it's more fear of losing their base, as more and more begin to side with the left - putting aside partisanship. They can't have that. Especially during an election year. I couldn't help but notice they were content to remain silence, or supported the efforts to bring Zimmerman to justice - until Obama spoke on it.
    I have no love lost for Al Sharpton. But even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while. He happens to be on the right side of this one. I'm not going to let pre-existing feelings I have for any public figure decide this issue for me.

    i think a lot of it is this agenda that immediately shifts into "guns rights" defensive mode out of the assumption that whenever there's a tragic shooting the left will try and outlaw guns. But to be honest i'm surprised how little i'm hearing of "this shooting is tragic but we shouldn't take people's guns away" etc.

    jonah goldberg, by the way, is one of the worst people on the planet.
    Yes Jonah is one POS.

    A week ago, everyone on FOX news was acting like Nancy Grace out to lynch Zimmerman. Then we found out the story presented to us at first was a set-up.

    A (black) Reverend (former Pres. of NAACP) ALSO wants to know why the death of black youth only matters on the rare occasion the killer is white.

    Where are 2 million marching for the 6 year old killed by a stray bullet from (black on black) gang violence?

    But there is a core contingent of RW members and media and bloggers that use this as an opportunity to vent their spleen and prop up the myth of the victimized white majority.
    Blah & metheron too.
    I think these guys paid attention in class.
