Not worth anything to me.
Seems they could wait for the facts to come out
or would that be asking too much.

Labron who?
Miami heat? Is that a tv show?

This has been blown into ridiculous proportions. As I stated in another post in another thread, you can't promote and celebrate a "thug" culture and then cry "racial profiling" when said culture causes you problems.

On another note, at least we've finally pounded that last nail in the coffin of Darwin's evolution theory.

Figures thugs would support thugs. Maybe LeBron should worry about the fact that he CHOKES at making clutch shots

This is going to backfire on Obama. No one wants this crap going on. No one wants to hear Al Sharpton and company squeal. It’s a gift to Mitt Romney.

There are sites cropping up that are having people wear a hoodie up with a sign saying I am Trayvon Martin.

I'm sure the Heat players thought this pic would be seen as a sympathetic tribute, but it comes across as you said, blatantly thuggish and somewhat ominous.

I wonder if the Heat, or excuse me, I think they call themselves “El Heat” now, would have any sort of tribute for a white kid, or asian kid, or hispanic kid, that was shot. Its not like Trayvon was the only person ever shot in Florida, murders happen all the time. Where is El Heat’s tribute to them..or to the 49 shot and 10 dead in Chicago, that’s Wade’s hometown, don’t see him having any tributes for those who died in his Hometown

Let ‘em. It’s a free country. [shrug] We’ve heard from the President, Sharpton, Farakaan.... Next will come the Rap songs, celebrity statements, Jon Stewart, the “made for TV movies” and the usual parade. This is expected. But, let’s not forget the real lesson here:

Don’t try to beat up a Latino when he has a gun.

There are also your rogue stragglers like Santorum.

It wouldn't surprise me to see him trade in the lame sweater vest for a pulled up hoodie for a day or two.

Of course, he'd need to be in a city with the appropriate demographic.

Where is the nationwide support for the Straits??

While the Zimmerman ‘white’ on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by a feral gang of blacks in Oklahoma just the other day?

The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten, his jaw broken, he was shot in the face with a BB gun numerous times and sent to the hospital in critical condition.

The 85 year old partially blind wife was raped and beaten to death.

.

There’s a lot more here than a home invasion and robbery.

WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??

90 year old husband’s jaw broken and shot in face with BB gun?

85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??

Where is the 24/7 MSM coverage

Where is the outrage?

This is exactly what they use to run into businesses and rob them as a group. We have stores here where you cannot enter the store with the hood up.

Once again people trying to get in on the Drama of it all and have their moment of being in the news or front page.

Go Bulls!

When James, Wade, or Bosh is half the the player (and more importantly, the person) Derrick Rose is, let me know.

This is like when the Suns played as “Los Suns” to show their solidarity with the criminals that are pouring over the southern border that Chairman Obama allegedly secured.

Maybe these guys will pick up the faultering OWS or whatever that crowd was protesting....

I never pay attention either when college students protest anything...they're generally in a mental state of rebellion in one form or another anyway and love to find a reason to mass in crowd form...spring break comes to mind....they all go to the same places.

Funny they talk about being individuals but they wear the same clothes, hairstyles, shoes, etc.etc.

Are you insinuating that sitting on the bench biting your nails in the 4th QTR is not clutch play ? LOL!

I live in the Miami area and the hype is almost as unbearable as the hype a certain Kenyan illegally rode to the White Hut back in ‘08.

Go Bulls!

Media picks and chooses accoroding to the political climate and or what storyline they can create with the most Drama to pull in viewers over a long period of time. Thus ratings are good and consistant...and the pundits can talk for hours on...special guests etc.

Few would be interested in two elderly peoples plight unfortunately. We are the only nation that is disrespectful of the elderly and see them as disposable as the unborn.

Since they have a false story like they did in the Duke Lax witch hunt, when the turth comes out to the general public, these idiots will lose some of the power they have over this cultural herd fad they have going. People will know they are liars and followers.

DUMB ASS LEBRON

Witness: Martin attacked Zimmerman

ORLANDO - A witness we haven't heard from before paints a much different picture than we've seen so far of what happened the night 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed.

The night of that shooting, police say there was a witness who saw it all.

Our sister station, FOX 35 in Orlando, has spoken to that witness.

What Sanford Police investigators have in the folder, they put together on the killing of Trayvon Martin few know about.

In his call to Police, Zimmerman never mentioned the hoodie as his reason for being suspicious. It was rather Martin's behavior that caught his eye. The only time Zimmerman mentions the word “hoodie,” is when Police asked him to describe what the person was wearing. Zimmereman also mentioned he was wearing “either jeans or sweatpants, and white tennis shoes.” There is no evidence at all that the attire Martin was wearing played any role in Mr. Zimmermans suspicion, yet, you have Lebron James here, and probably others, clearly making that connection and advocating it. That's what makes this not only ridiculous, but very revealing as well, because by pulling this stunt, they're making it very clear that they well understand what the real problem is here. Make no mistake about that...
