This is becoming a yawn...
150,000 ex-Louisianans can’t be wrong.
Insanity is the new currency.
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.
What are they going to wear for the other blacks killed by other blacks this past week?
