Whether we like it or not, racism is still very prevelant in our society.

It still happens today and the ignorance that people could turn a blind eye to it like it doesn't exist makes me sick.
However, what makes me the most sick, and I had to explain this to my mother (who is also on the Trayvon bandwagon with the Black Panthers/Al Sharpton/etc.) is that where are these people when this "Stand your Ground" law was used almost 100 times previously, many times in South Florida and many times when it is a "black on black" crime. What is the matter Al? You only show up when a case fits your agenda? Why not show up when the case doesn't involve 2 different races? When this law was passed in 2005 I remember telling my coworkers that Florida is gonna be like the wild, wild, west with this new law and it took 7 years and a potentially racially motivated crime to see the light on this? Meanwhile 65 people were murdered in that span and the defense was "Stand your Ground".
If you only come out with something fits your agenda, you're better off staying away, because your phony as hell in my eyes.
And yea, that ******* who shot Trayvon needs to be in jail . . . and if the shoe was on the other foot, why do I feel the Black Panthers/Al Sharpton would come to the defense of the "shooter" rather than the victim? Right is right and wrong is wrong and race shouldn't be the judge of that.
