And we haven't had a race riot on the east coast in how long?

This is terrible.

I understand the frustration and impotence the black community must be feeling, because I feel it as well. An innocent child is dead as the result of an alleged "mistake"; his killer was not arrested.
It is my understanding that the case is still under investigation; I feel it is best to allow the investigation to continue unimpeded. Additionally, the family of the victim may wish to bring a civil suit against Zimmerman and/or the police department, and I feel that any outside interference or harassment of Zimmerman might impede their chances of being successful with this.
But I do understand that blacks are sick unto death of losing their sons- guilty and innocent alike- to prison and to violent death.
And I understand their desire to send a message- a warning- to society, that they will not tolerate the killing of innocent black children. I doubt they intend to take any action against Zimmerman, beyond making threats.
That said, this is clearly the wrong tack to take, but when a child is dead by violence who has done no wrong, and it seems his killer will get away scot-free, it's hard to be reasonable and think clearly.

REtweets...

Notice "RE" in "REtweets"?...

The OP points out that Lee wasn't the originator of the tweets...But points out how he passed the information along to all of HIS 245,000+ followers...

The savages are ready to cut and scrape. The media has spun its tale and the righteous rager lynchmob won't sleep until they have a head on a stick.

****ing animals.

Correction: an earlier version of this post stated incorrectly that the address tweeted by Spike Lee does not exist. The address does exist.
