Indianapolis-The Indiana Black Expo's Indianapolis chapter hosted a forum for the community downtown Monday to talk about the death of Trayvon Martin.

It was meant to address the sudden and controversial shooting death of the unarmed teen back in February.

The event featured community and religious leaders as well as a student from Arsenal Tech High School.

"This forum is an outlet so we can get our ideas out there and properly process them, and once we've done so, we can take proper action to make sure this incident never happens again," said Robert Sherrell, student.

They event was just one of the many planned by the Indiana Black Expo. Others will take place throughout the state as part of the We Are One Project.

What do you think would happen if someone organized a "white expo" or some such?

They’re instigators.

0bama has set race relations back many, many years.

Did their discussion of race relations include any of the subsequent black-on-white violence episodes where the attackers shouted out comments that “this is for Trayvon”?

Hand-wringing only matters if you care about ALL people.

IMO the best way to “make sure this never happens again” is for mamas and papas to make sure their kids don’t grow up to be thugs!!

". . . take proper action to make sure this incident never happens again . . ."

We're in agreement. When the thug interrupted his efforts to case the neighborhood and started pounding George Zimmerman's head against the concrete, Zimmerman took proper action to make sure attacks by Trayvon never happened again. Problem solved.

As the nation degenerates on feminist bigotry, it is now OK for blacks to be openly racist. That means Jews are soon to be next... but, hey, they voted for him when Wright made his hate speech and they will vote for him again...

“This forum is an outlet so we can get our ideas out there and properly process them”

Translation: “We have no idea what actually happened, but we’ll just go with whatever pap the Drive-By-Media fed us”.

“and once we’ve done so, we can take proper action to make sure this incident never happens again,” said Robert Sherrell, student.”

“Proper action” is a very apt term. “Proper action” is to learn the ethics, principles and morality that will lead you to act in a lawful, civilized manner. Otherwise, you just might get shot.

I’m hopeful that GZ will justifiably be exonerated, then proceed to sue various entities for a WHOLE LOT of money. Al Sharpton is at the top of that list, along with NBC, the NAACP, the Black Panthers and Roseanne Barr (I’m sure I missed a few other worthy targets - so to speak). That would be fun to watch.

Black Expo attendees will still shoot more Black Expo attendess than whitey. Maybe they’ll organize a Washington St hunt and go after the Hispanics in honor of Skittles.

IBE is an embarassment to our city.

A sure way to avoid this kind of incident is for black teens not to assault people.

Yep - and with the sole purpose of igniting anger and violence so they can stomp on those who defend themselves as racist haters and further fan the flames. Only worls as long as folks keep wearing the sheep skins and keep rolling over. If it really ignites, expect a LOT of blood in the streets and for underground cabals to start actively opposing government forces. He's trying to turn us into a third world nation with all the daily violence that become the way of "life". Hopefully, he underestimates the will of decent People and overestimates how corrupt the government/law forces are willing to become.

Maybe the black expo could hold forums on Flash Robs and Knockout Kings, too.

You’re right on every count.

I see a stand off or show down coming.

Joe Arpaio might be the key figure.

Will they be holding a forum on the Tyrone Woodfork case?

No? Oh, they really should.

Maybe this is a good opportunity for the Black Expo attendees to just get down to it and start shooting the other BEAs so that their odds are better at hitting the ones who are a problem for society. Better here, where they are all in the same place, than on the streets where innocent people can be hit instead.

Lock the doors, keep them inside and let them start the Black on Black violence.
