Peaceful local crowds protest Florida verdict
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | July 20, 2013 | Stephanie M. Lee, Vivian Ho and Kevin Fagan

Posted on 07/20/2013 6:53:55 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

...Also attending the rally was Rashaun Martin, a woman in her 40s from Hayward who was joined by her sons, Stephen, 23, Isaiah, 13 and Vincent, 7. She said cases like the one in Florida reinforced her fear for her sons' safety - she even drives them to and from school every day because she doesn't want them to walk home alone.

"For Zimmerman to get free, it's just horrifying," she said. "It just reaffirms that it's OK for a white man to kill all children - of all races."

Is it OK for black getto rats to kill innocent blacks by the dozen every weekend in LA, Atlanta, and Chicongo?

The militant Saint Skittles marches in 100 cities this weekend make sense when considered in context with our corrupt election laws.

By doing away with checking voter registrations we have encouraged black people to believe that they have a civil right to steal elections.

The logical progression from there would be that they would believe that they have a civil right to dictate judicial outcomes.

This is the result of the Obama/Holder campaign of racial separation. Racist vitriol has increased many times over since his first election.

Here are some facts to chew on circa 2000: source http://www.amren.com/archives/reports/the-color-of-crime/

Interracial Crime

• Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
• Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
• Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
• Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.

So, 85% of the 770,000 violent crimes involving blacks & whites each year are committed by blacks.

Break it down now...

That means a total of 654,000 of these violent crimes are committed by blacks (.85 x 770,000)

Black population by numbers is approximately 12.5%, or 33,000,000 - 2010 census data

So let’s divide the 654,000 violent crimes committed by blacks every year by the total black population. 654,000/33,000,000 = .0198 or roughly (2%).

This would conclude that 2% of the black population commits 85% of all violent crimes involving black & whites in the US.

Yes... blacks are going to end up in prison and on death row more then any other race in the US. Those are the facts, not racism.

It just reaffirms that it's OK for a white man to kill all children - of all races.

We who believe in the rule of law need to secede from the wretched leftist extremist mess. Trying to share a nation with people who sincerely believe skin color trumps anything and everything else is an exercise in self-defeat.

Mary Poehnelt, one of the two finalists on Hell’s Kitchen this season, posted a pic of herself in a hoodie and the link to the NAACP’s petition in support of St. Skittles. She seemed to be the underdog this year so I was rooting for her. After this, no way.

And they are more likely to be killed or maimed by another black than by a white, Hispanic, or white/Hispanic.

The only kind of 'disputed' shooting/killing of a black by a white man I can easily recall is cops ~vs~ perps that I read about in the news, regularly...

I have personally know several whites MURDERED by blacks in crimes ranging from robbery to rape to gang initiation.

One can only guess that anyone who would believe its 'open season' on black men/boys would be a L.I.V. from one of those states with a fractional percentage of black inhabitants,
since some of those states went overwhelmingly for Ø while those that enjoy diversity to a double-digit % went for Romney...

The whole 'familiarity breeds contempt' thing dontchaknow...

There is no hope for them. All one can do is wait for them to die off and hope for a better crop next time. You could tell them the truth until your tongue bled and they would not believe it. You can lay out the facts so simple a grasshopper would understand and they won’t accept them. And the bad part of it is, she has plenty of company.

Take out the babies, the elderly and infirm, the currently incarcerated, etc... and the percentage is even smaller. It’s like the pink mafia - an extremely small percentage of the population has cowed a rather large contingent of the white population (you know - the white guilt stricken) or even more generally the unthinking low information morons of all races. Don’t kid yourself, that last bit is a huge chunk of the entire population.

Yes, indeed, sometimes it seems like she has a country full of company.

But it helps me to keep focus on the fact that there were 6 jurors and one alternate who are not company to people such as this.

So that is at least something good.

Safety from whom? Trigger-happy "crackas" rolling through the hood looking for Black chior boys to blow away? Get real, lady! The thugs who happen to be Black are the ones your sons need to look out for. You would do your sons a tremendous service teaching them to stay away from that type of element. Judging by TM's "gangsta" demeanor he put up on Twitter, If any lesson is to be learned from this tragedy, what happened to TM should serve as a lesson to the "youts" as to the sad, but inevitable consequences of "letting your alligator mouth get your butterfly ass in trouble.
