It's tomorrow, and I haven't slept in like a week, so anything you say is going to be beyond me... :oops:

It is a bit interesting, considering that this case actually IS what so many people like Jackson and Sharpton and yes, Obama claimed the Zimmerman case was---about racisim.

It comes as Edwards, who has been charged with first-degree murder, posted racist tweets saying he hated white people in the months before the shooting.

Edwards posted statements on his Twitter feed including a comment on April 29 where he tweeted "90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM".

Edwards also weighed when George Zimmerman was acquitted over the death of Trayvon Martin.

"Ayeee I knocced out 5 woods since Zimmerman court!:) lol sh*t ima keep sleepin sh*t! #ayeeee."

"Woods" is derogatory slang for white people. The feed also contains tweets glorifying violence, guns and gangs.


IIRC, the media was busy lying their asses off to make the case that Zimmerman was racist, but with this case, including at least one proven racist, the media is pretty quiet.

There is no outrage because there is no one who matters who believes these kids are innocent, there is no way the murderers will get off scott free. In the same way nobody protested Jeffrey Dahmers arrest and conviction, no one will protest this. There is nothing to defend.

The fact that you think the two cases are in any way equivocal makes you a fucking idiot, completely ignorant of any of the underlying problems that are actually in effect.


"No one that mattered" believed that Martin wasn't busily trying to kill Zimmerman either. It was a completely cynical ploy on their part, and the media's, using a sad death as race-baiting. Unlike this case, which as I pointed out actually IS about racism.

But you make the classic argument of someone who doesn't actually have any argument---you act like a jackass with no class. Most people here don't need to resort to that, even those who don't agree with me, but then I guess most people here aren't quite as...limited...in their evident ability to respond using facts and creativity as you seem to be. I'm actually feeling embarrassed for you here...

Damn, son, you're just making yourself look bad. You should give it up and go home, you just don't have game. :lol:

I don't think this is entirely accurate. For people like Jackson and Sharpton, it's about political power and empowerment, and the racism of an entire society, not the simple racism between individual people. I'm not saying I agree with them, but I think you're oversimplifying and creating a straw man. Every single case ever that involves racism isn't "the thing that Jackson and Sharpton claim to care about."

The media are scum and this doesn't fit their narrative in the same way, though I see they have been covering it more.

It took the White House 3 days before the pres s asked a question about Chris Lane, it took six weeks before there was a question on Trayvon Martin.

So thanks Jude, LT, and Thunderstorm for pointing out the obvious media double standard. :D

Yes, it took them a little while to discover the Martin thing. So? Once they found it, they ran with it.

Well, your Sharptons and your Jacksons don't actually care about racism IMO. What it means for them, whether it exists in an individual case or not, is what it can get them. Which usually amounts to publicity, money and yeah, power. So yeah, it's an indirect means to getting what they really want.

And yeah, of course they're not going to hit every case that the could conceivably spin toward racism, or actually involves it, only the ones they judge will profit them the most.

But I don't believe that either Jackson or Sharpton have any noble motives whatsoever. They're all about personal money and power and publicity. They're only concerned about societal racism in that it can get them the big bucks. And as we've seen, they're not above lying, cheating or doing anything else that's morally and legally questionable to get it.

And that's fine, I don't like them much either. I'm just saying that it's a straw man to claim that they're hypocrites for not speaking out about crimes against white people.
