Did Trayvon have gold rings on and was he dancing to hip hop in the rain?
"No limit nigga" is a hip hop phrase and yes a lot of normal black and white and hispanic teenagers dress and talk that way. When I was young we had holes in our jeans, called cops pigs not because we were bad but because that was the slang of the day.
Why do you feel any need to defend any of that crap? Obama had no damned business even opening his mouth on this.

Trayvon could have been standing in the rain with his arms crossed doing absolutely nothing suspicious. Zimmerman, as neighborhood watch, did absolutely nothing illegal.

If any of my sons had used idiotic slang names like Trayvon used, they would have been grounded and schooled on the proper use of their identification.

Holes in clothes were taboo. Police were called police. I think I see where the problem lies.

And you do?


The thing that kills me about this thread is that it's not about what Obama actually said.
It's what people are reading into his statements to coincide with THEIR agenda.

"stem the tide of gun violence" ???
Seriously? That's a bad thing?


With the right, I can't help but laugh at some of their complaints.
They complain he doesn't act like a leader, but then when confronted with examples like this they whine rabidly about his leading.

Coonskin caps and beaver coats...blah blah blah...Why do you feel the need to vilify an innocent teenager walking home from the store?

He ceased being an innocent teenage when he jumped Zimmerman from the bushes.

Please point out which laws were changed by the jury's verdict. None were. The jury found that in this specific instance Zimmerman acted in self defense. The jury followed the law using the evidence presented at trial, something you seem unable to do.

I love the Left's insistence that even a single reference to Obama without a mention of his office is a grave racist offense but when it is convenient they expect him to be treated as a community organizer in Chicago. The President chose to use the power and influence of his office to intervene in a local criminal matter but it is all good because it is President Obama.

Never let a tragedy stand in the way of an agenda.

Which is exactly what you Zimmerman apoligists are doing. An idiot with a gun must be defended at all costs. It's the Teapublican agenda. That and young potential black gangsta thugs deserve killing even if you've never seen them before - they have to be up to no good and probably wouldn't have lived past 25 anyway, right?

Innocent teenager followed by a creepy azzed cracker in the dark in the rain defending himself.

I made no such statement.
Furthermore, anybody with half a brain can read my post and recognize I MYSELF made reference to Obama without mention of his office.

Honesty from you would be appreciated, but at this point not expected.

Are you referring to President Obama making a comment that the right loses their mind over?

Or are you referring to something else?
I'm just trying to figure out what brand of absurdity I'm addressing before responding...
