That is absolutely absurd. Putting Zimmerman on a shirt calling him a cracker. Judging by the look on the models face, that stupid idiot doesn’t understand why this shirt doesn’t make sense.

And this will certainly go a long way to healing the ‘’racial divide’’ the race pimps go on about. The black racists decry ‘’racism’’ and yet do all they can to keep it alive. As I’ve said before, for many in America racism is a business.

According to Major Mikail Muhammad of the NBBP, the bounty on George Zimmerman is going to be one million dollars “with the help of athletes and entertainers.”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWMgLvbZ0g8

If true, and the DOJ doesn’t track that money, then we may as well call ALL justice in this nation a freaking wash.

If this is true it is a slam dunk RICO case! (Well if you had a legitimate Justice Department to file it that is...)

and I’m advised that in Florida, “cracker” refers to original colonial-era English and American pioneer settlers of what is now the U.S. state of Florida, and their descendants. So that’s not accurate either.

I guess the public schools need to spend more time teaching racial hatred and bigotry so these sign-makers can get their references correct /sarc

I’m sure Zimmerman can get a fair trial. /s

btw despite what fake revs Al and Jesse say, it seems to me this incident had absolutely nothing to do with race, yet somehow a lot of racists are marching, threatening and offering bounties.

I’ve been wondering too where people are coming up with the idea that Zimmerman is a Jewish name. A person could be Jewish and have that name, but not all, and probably not many, Zimmermans are Jewish. Hence, to call it a Jewish name makes no sense.

Unfortunately, there are many who are ignorant and/or stupid enough to believe their lies.

“Cracker” goes back to England and Ireland and predates America history. Thomas Sowell has explained its origin in some of his books.

Yep, you would think. Some AUSA’s are afraid to run with RICO cases.

And with Holder in charge, they probably won’t get approval.

I am wondering where NBPP would hold Zimmerman if they did capture him?

I see the Feds taking him into protective custody and hiding him. IF they do their jobs. If not, my tagline applies.

Before there can be a trial, they have to find a crime to accuse Zimmerman with and then put it in front of a grand jury.

People have been falsely accused before and grand juries have been lied to, but if this goes to trial we really will be in trouble, not just Zimmerman.

And when did Hispanics get to be crackers?

Hell, even the old black panthers don't like these clowns. These clowns are the chocolate klan.

There are no good crackers, and if you find one, kill him before he changes - Khalid Abdul Muhammad, founder.

“We have a common enemy: the white man. And the white man’s system, his way of doing things, his way of operating. That’s what we mean by ‘the white man.’ His military, his planes, his aircraft carriers, his bombs, his missiles, his imperialism, his colonialism, his Zionism. That’s the real enemy, what we call the white man.” - Malik Shabazz.

Do what you have to do. I will.

"Zimmermann" means "carpenter" in German.

I was taught it meant "hosteler," as in "innkeeper." "Zimmer" is German for "room," so a Zimmer-mann would be a "room-man," or one who keeps rooms for let.

In the age of Obama:

Peruvians=Whites and Spics=Crackers *

In all honesty, if George Zimmerman is a "white hispanic", Tiger Woods is a white golfer, and Barack Obama is a white president.

* Exceptions: When successful, Asians are grouped with whites, as the ethnic group "Whitesanasians". When the victim, Hispanics are grouped with blacks, creating the ethnic group "Blacksanhispanics". When the perpetrator of violence against blacks, Hispanics are grouped into the ethnic group "White Hispanics".

I think that is because we "crackers" lend no power to the word.

Blacks call each other ni$$er all the time, but when they do it it has no power.

For some reason when a White uses the word, it take on an entirely different meaning.
