So on Saturday, the NAACP held a rally at the corner of Rose Park and Richmond Hill avenues on the city's West Side, where Bryant and other leaders from the black community stood on the stone steps in front of a brick church, raising awareness of what the "game changing" ruling means for everyday people here in his hometown.

"I don't care if they're drug dealers. I don't care if they're prostitutes and I don't care if they're HIV/AIDS victims. They are all children of God. And when someone gets shot and somebody's dead, we have to stand up here in Stamford, Connecticut."

Darnell Crosland, president of the Norwalk chapter of the NAACP and a prominent criminal defense attorney, voiced concerns about the message that "because there is shootings and killings between African-American youth in Chicago, also here in Stamford and in Norwalk, that we should not be upset about what happened in the George Zimmerman trial."

That's nonsense, he said.

"Because we have challenges with youth being killed in our own neighborhoods, we want you to realize you should still be upset with what happened with George Zimmerman," he said

The NAACP rallier with the sign has a point, but not the one he thinks he's making. This rally looks like less than 12 people. Not really a big deal, save for the fact that now speakers have been shamed into acknowledging and addressing the real problem in their communities: black on black violence.

The photo includes one black father figure type and a couple of aged male and female white liberals, leaking their guilt at being white.

If more black father figures/fathers would emerge, this problem would probably recede.

Ubuntu, the white African American. (A running joke on the animated show: The Goode Family -- see, Ubuntu was adopted, from S. Africa, by the ultra-liberal "stars" of the show. They wanted a black baby, to enhance their "progressive" cred.)

Cracks me up to see whites thinking that they would be spared if the SHTF.

Mr. Whitebread Cracker there would be the first to get his throat slit.

And when someone gets shot and somebody's dead, we have to stand up here in Stamford, Connecticut.

Presumably this means more aggressive prosecution and possibly weakening the level of evidence required to prove guilt in homicide cases.

The primary result of which would be more black men in prison for longer periods.

“Cracks me up to see whites thinking that they would be spared if the SHTF.”

There is no benevolent Master but One.

Some Negros and progressives think that they can somehow make Heaven on Earth.

The rest of us know different.

I treat everyone the same.

If you leave me in peace, I will not bother you and you will not bother me.

If you attack me or are getting ready to attack me, for whatever reason, I will defend myself with lethal force. No matter who you are.

I treat everyone equally in that respect. I live by the Golden Rule.

How about asking the Trayvons of the world why they choose not to live by the Golden Rule.
