This death is being scripted, choreographed for the big dance this summer.

Just awesome. If they really wanted to be effective, though, they should have recommended wearing hoodies and skipping school. Doncha think? /s

Yes, come summer, the story will be he was dragged behind a pickup.

The left is racism on parade.

I think the way to counter this is to highlight Zimmerman’s ‘hispanic’ ethnicity - please excuse me - because this blows up the narrative and the left would have to attack another ‘minority’ to proceed.

I don’t think Obama would want a black vs. brown war. The enemy has to be white.

Quick definition -

“community organizers” = Obama’s labor/welfare thugs

“Community leaders”? Con artists grifting cash from Da Man.

Community leaders? Quannell X perhaps (a well-known Houston race-hustler)? In any event,the race pimps are working overtime. Even if the facts ultimately show that Martin was murdered, a “white/hispanic” murdering a black is far rarer than blacks murdering Asians and whites. It seems that our “post-racial” occupant of the White House and his friends are deliberately trying to increase racial conflict. Do they really think that will get Obamalini re-elected?

From what I have seen so far Zimmerman is being described by the MSM as “white” even though his father denied belonging to that racial category.

Obviously, you are not familiar with the new racial category of “white Hispanic” as Yahoo reported it yesterday?

Zimmerman didn’t shoot Martin because Martin was wearing a hoodie; he shot Martin because he was on his back getting pummeled by him.

No, “white hispanic” is a new one for me, thanks.

Does this mean we’ll soon see Obama described as a white black?

Just checked out Zimmerman's photo. Not to pigeon-hole anyone, but he definitely looks Hispanic. Why are they leaving that bit of news out? Zimmerman sounds like a German last name. (or even Jewish as the article suggests)

From an article based on the Washington Post: George Zimmerman has a white father and a Peruvian mother, he speaks Spanish. They have black relatives. He's a minority, too.

Well, if they’re going to go to the trouble to wear “hoodies” they might as well also wear their pants way down so that their undie-clad butts are hanging out for all to see.

If Zimmerman got pulled over in AZ and asked for an ID, Eric Holder would be suing the state.

The ethnicity of Zimmerman would be funny except the entire situation is being seized upon and directed towards the goal of serious riots.

So we should all do our counterpart by wearing bandanas and drinking Dos Equis.

Egads! The lunacy! Will they bring out the ribbons and candlelight vigils if it’s determined the kid was a punk and brought on the fight himself? Of course not.

And to support show support for Allen Goin, I urge them to set themselves on fire.

Socon-Econ, I agree with you so we are racists right? Zimmerman has the right to use deadly force in that situation. Tryvon had the ablity, opportunity and placed Zimmerman’s life in danger with the pounding of his fists on his face. Common sense does not appeal to the reverse racist crowd.

Community leaders? Quannell X perhaps...”

Interesting that Mr. X never mentions that his wife is Asian. He did get some negative press not too long ago for taking money from people to help them and then did nothing. Not surprising that except for one brief blip on the news we heard nothing else. But I do know that there were a lot of Black folks who were very upset with him.

Geez. Louise...Geraldo was a moron for suggesting it was the kid’s own fault for wearing a hoodie, but these people are two shams of a mockery of a sham of moroneology for suggesting that everyone wear a hoodie. It’s no justification whatsoever to assault or murder anyone, but it does make you look like a thug. And guess what problem hip-hop culture has exacerbated to the max? The glorification of the thug image. Dumb, Dumberer and Most Dumbererest.

Wearing hoodies in the 80+ weather will make for a bunch of stinking getto folks in Houston.
