Default Let's play a game: Find The White Guy

I've had some thoughts on why the cries for the death of George Zimmerman
from the race bating industry might have lessened since the release of this photo.

Anyone want to guess what they might be?

So prejudice now equals pointing out gross negligence by the media?

How does that work?

You are mistaken. This is a thread about prejudice, not a prejudiced thread.

Largely, it's a statement about how the handlers of racially hypersensitive people, will avoid ambiguous visual cues, since they are involved with emotional rather than rational appeals, they tend to avoid ambiguous visual cues

You see, unlike me, they propagate an ethos of extreme and imaginary racial archetypes, in which Caucasians all have complexions ranging from Swedish Albino, to lightly tanned Italian. (I assume that India just confuses them, and they'd like it to go away.)

Zimmerman is just not likely to prove a sufficiently pale prop for some peoples’ purposes. Al Sharpton, Lewis Farrakhan, the New Black Panthers and Jesse Jackson, for instance.

I would like to hear this guy comment though:

The Australian aborigines are also Caucasoid. I believe the term race baiters are looking for is "Anglo-looking".

You don't have to have blue eyes to be white. Hello.
I don't care if he was white or not (but he is as far as I can see). I don't think he set out to go kill a negro that day. I just think OC's thread title drew the bigotowskis out of the wood work. Like a rocket she zeroed in on it, always happens when you throw race bait in front of nameless individuals. So you and I have no quarrel. I made a true statement.
And I didn't get to see all the media stuff so who knows what abcfoxnbc are cookin up next?
edited to say I thought I was talking to AZ. You having a man's avatar like his. Answer why are you drawn to racially charged headlines so fast?
