Bad feeling about the Trayvon Martin situation.

A few things worry me about what I think is going to result from the whole Trayvon Martin mess.

1: One thing I think is that the racial divide in this country is going to grow exponentially before this is over. It's never really gone away, and I think this is only going to make it worse.
2: I also think that if this does not end the way the angry mobs want it to, it's going to end up like the Rodney King deal in L.A., only on a national scale. The media and the Black Panthers are only fanning the flames, and no good is going to come from any of it.
3: This just might end up winning the election for Obama. I can just see all the ignorant non-voters going to the voting booths in November, thinking that they can't let a white guy back into the White House or else shit like this Trayvon deal will happen all the time.

IDK, maybe it's just me, but I don't see this ending well for the country.

No doubt a political move when he said "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon"

Nothing like cashing in on the situation.

He stated if he had a son he would be like tryvon martin. This in itself is reason enough to never let that man back in office. He went spouting off about something he clearly had no idea about, with just a little bit of research he would of seen that he just told the nation that his son would of been someone who had violence issues, was terribly uneducated(assuming based on Trayvons twitter and facebook posts), and quite possibly a drug dealer(once again based off of twitter and facebook posts).

Not just you.

I was saying the same thing to my wife, based on the fact that while Zimmerman's action weren't smart, they weren't illegal.

Up until the fight started Trayvons actions weren't illegal either. After a certian point someone did something that was illegal. Of course Z's going to claim it wasn't him. We will never know for sure what the truth is.

This country is more warm and fuzzie to the whole diversity thing then it's ever been ever. No one should be bitching about race relations these days. Just my .02.

It seems to me that "diversity" is really just imposed upon people at such places as their workplaces and educational institutions. Outside of that, I think most people are pretty much thinking "the hell with that crap". I know at my workplace, they have an "Embrace Diversity" bulletin board, but nobody even looks at it.

Driving through Pontiac tonight and this post got me thinking... It might not be a bad idea to carry my pistol more often.

This is where 'reasonable doubt' comes in.


My prediction-

Zimmerman will hang for this if for no other reason than to preserve the peace.

Obie was losing ground in the black community.

Inserted himself into racially-charged situation, vastly increasing racial tension.

Black voting bloc re-energized.

Situation fixed.

Anyone ever notice that racist black people are typically poor and uneducated.....and racist white people are also typically poor and uneducated?

There are always exceptions to the rule....
