Was George Zimmerman racially profiled? Is there a double standard on racism?

Shot and killed a teenager, that was assaulting him. Given the same circumstance. If you were in fear for your life, would you not do the same? Would you just lay there and let someone kill you?
No Ashleign I would not shoot and kill someone who was assaulting me. Especially if they only did the damage that Zimmerman had. Zimmerman injuries were by no means life threatening, not to mention that his entire story makes no sense.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Of course you wouldn't kill someone who was assaulting you... behind the safety of your computer screen. It's so easy to sit at the comfort of your home and fantasize about what you think you would do in that situation.
Klevi - Contrary to what you want to make Zimmerman out to be the man had a gun. He could have simply held the kid at bay until police got there. He did not have to pull the trigger. I also find it very juvenile when people make assumptions.
And how would you know what I make Zimmerman out to be? I'm not defending the man. I think he's a violent, paranoid psycho. With all due respect, you're the one making juvenile assumptions in this situation, sir.
You are contradictory in your argument. First you say I'm hiding behind the safety of my computer because I wouldn't shoot but then you say Zimmerman is a violent, paranoid psycho because he did. I am not assuming you just changed your stance.
Not contradictory at all. That's how you're interpreting what I'm saying. I'm not defending his actions, I'm simply criticizing your hypothetical, unfounded argument. You have no idea what you would do in that situation because you weren't there.
During my life I have been in more than enough altercation to know that they should never end in death.
Okay.. Let's everyone just calm down. The jury has deliberated, the trial is over. Do you believe that racism exists on both sides of the fence? Or do you believe that racism only effects blacks and not whites?
The answer to your question is actually in the definition of the word.
Interesting answer! I really did not think of it that way.
There is a big difference between being gay and being a gay rapist stalker.
There is nothing that allows you to assault someone because that's what you think they are. Just the mention of him being assaulted for being gay makes it a hate crime. That didn't fit the media narrative of Trayvon they created.
Had he done that, he may not have been able to save those people from that burning motor vehicle collision.
Burning vehicle? I heard it was a bus full of black orphans and he flew in with a red cape. Let's all get together and sing, "For Ze's a Jolly Good Fellow." How about Man of the Year?
Lol...some people just can't let it go...
No. They took him in, and released him after it was deemed self defense. He was then brought in a second time due to public outcry. Black Panthers offered a reward for him to be brought to justice.
And.. then they found he was hispanic.
Now wait a minute. There are some that believe he should have never been taken to trial. Therefore, he may have been racially discriminated against for being white.
