Skip to comments.Albany 'Justice for Trayvon' attendees call for discussions about race
Posted on 07/22/2013 5:31:39 AM PDT by kevcol
The Albany protest, staged outside the Federal Courthouse on Broadway, drew some 200 people, many of whom carried signs and chanted the slogan no justice no peace.....
Zimmerman was acquitted of murder and manslaughter by a Florida jury, largely due to the circumstances under which prosecutors were bound by Floridas controversial stand your ground laws, which sanction and expand the use of deadly force in cases of so-called self-defense.
Martin had been walking along a street in Sanford, Florida; in an area patrolled by neighborhood volunteer Zimmerman.
The two became engaged in confrontation, the details of which remain somewhat unclear, but which ended with Zimmerman fatally shooting Martin in the chest.

OMG how funny, they are all white!
On the list of “Cities Vying To Become The Next Detroit.”
They all look like they’ve never seen the right side of a job. On government benefits most likely.
To paraphrase Redd Foxx as Fred G. Sanford: “You ain’t just a dummy; you a stupid dummy!”
Sadly, the left doesn’t want “discussions” about race. They want to lecture everyone one regarding their opinion on race relations with no rebuttal.
**discussions about race**
More bashing of whitey.
**discussions about race**
More bashing of whitey.
“The two became engaged in confrontation, the details of which remain somewhat unclear...”
B.S. they will continue to say the details are unclear until they get the answer they want.
Yup. They don’t want “discussion”. They want a beat-down.
I can’t stop laughing over the idiot holding the GUN CONTROL SAVES LIVES sign.
I’d like to ask him, “Have you ever heard of the American cities of Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, Washington or New Orleans, among too many others?”
Here is the evidence of how well “strict GUN control” works in the real world.
Dirty hippies. Drop them all off in North Philly.
They missed the turn for the anti war rally.
Please watch and see what this thug really is..It will tell about the drink and skittles he had was for..
Excuse me for asking a dumb question, but wasn’t the Trial of George Zimmerman precisely about “Justice” for Trayvon??
Judas Priest have all of them grown a beard? ick I hate facial hair on a guy
Yes, that stupid sign jumped out at me as well. Obviously held by a person whose agenda trumps the facts.
I also hate facial hair on a girl lol!
How about a discussion into the facts of the case and especially into the REAL Trayvon instead of the caricature the MSM has made up and foisted on the ill-informed dopes that make up these faux justice demonstrations.
That’s super sexy! /s
Me Too. GOD keeps liberals around so we can have a good laugh. Same with jessie & al.
That lot of WHITE people were paid to be there...
These are nothing but self loathing, self hating, filled with White guilt White Liberals.
Would any of them defend a homeless Black man that was beaten by the son of a Sanford police officer and insist that the assailant be charges as George Zimmerman did? No. Would any of them take the time to mentor a Black child as George Zimmerman did? No. Unless it was a repairman/woman or serviceman/woman, would any of them allow a Black individual inside their homes? No.
I happen to believe that George Zimmerman was and still is a decent honest man who was only trying to help those in his community. Which is much more than I can say for those, to use the term very, very loosely, people in the picture.
And put out the word that they are flush with drugs and money.
By ‘discussion about race’ they mean that Whitey has to declare his guilt, beg forgiveness and grovel.
Sounds good to me. Though just being crackers in North Philly is enough.
Me: “I believe that affirmative action has hurt the black community”
Them: “You’re a racist!”
End of conversation.
Not only that, but they would attempt to have God arrested and charged with a hate crime. They would probably want to crucify Him again.
WOW!!! Two hundred malcontent, America haters!!! The whole protest sham put forth and incited by Black racists, Obama, Holder, Sharpton, Jackson, the NAACP, the CBC was a total bust and failure!!! LOL!!! End of story!!! Black America remains mired in economic slavery, misery and lack of opportunity because of Obama, etc. who keeps them chained to the bottom of the economic totem pole!!! Not too bright these poor folks!!! “You can lead a horse to water...but, you cannot make him drink!!!”
There are two black women in the picture,
but they certainly are “under-represented”.
Ah... but that’s exactly what this whole “anti-white” sentiment is about.
They don’t really hate based on skin color. “Whiteness” is just a proxy for “Western/Christian Civilization”.
They HATE GOD’S LAWS, because they want to be their own god (see Genesis 3), and they hate our culture that is based on God’s Laws.
Discussions about race:
There are three.
End of discussion.............
This article is an abomination. After watching the trial, who could possibly have such a slanted and distorted viewpoint.....incredible!
Looks like we’ve found some of the Woodstock hippies who never went home.
...While on their way to Starbucks for lattes.
Remember white Hispanic?
These are white Blacks.
They’re all hardcore communists too.
Pray for America to Wake up
Impossible!!!! Liberals claim guns kill people, so the KelTec did the killing by itself.
Short discussion about race: How about marrying and creating stable families before pumping out kids? How about behaving, and raising your kids to behave, like civilized human beings? How about rejecting the rap thug culture Satan’s minions are immersing you in? How about valuing education and honest effort? How about making “acting white” a goal rather than a disparagement?
If those things became common, make no mistake, whitey would cheer and support you!
Unclear? What planet has this moron been living on for the past year? The lie continues...
Fine, they can discuss race. The rest of us have to work for a living.
Well, there was no Occupy rally scheduled for this week, so...
It has accomplished nothing good.
How 'bout we quit flappin' our gums about "race"? Let's disband the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People AND the National Association for the Advancement of White People. How about we disband the United Negro College Fund AND the United Caucasian College Fund? How about we abolish the Congressional Black Caucus AND the Congressional White Caucus? Let's get a little more diversity in the Black Entertainment Television channel AND the White Entertainment Television channel.
Let's quit the worthless babble about race, let's quit pretending that skin color actually means something. Let's instead get on about the business of making a living, loving our families, caring for our neighbors, and making the world a better place with our own effort ... not with "somebody else's money".
How about it? Jesse? Al? Barry? Eric? You with me?
There were to be 100 cities ablaze with righteous indignation that Treyvon had been denied justice.
How many cities were there and how big were the crowds?
I have seen this "crowd" of 200? Another crowd in Houston, reporting a crowd of 400?
I'm glad these calls for "justice" were a bust.
Have any other cities met with expectations of thousands?
Will this humble Sharpton, Jackson, Obama, Holder and other race baiters?
Not likely....either they will double down on lack of "justice" for Trayvon or they will find another example of Whitey, once again, beating the black community down.
Sucks to be you, race baiters. Its the race baiters who hold the so-called "Black Man" down.
Race baiters = racists.
“OMG how funny, they are all white!”
That is ‘unclear’ to me. Maybe it’s the lighting or the camera angles. They are all trayvon.
They are "white blacks", not blacks per say. More like window dressing for this crowd.
And, while we're about it: where are all the "white hispanics" protesting?
*snicker* Hope they've washed by now. Really hope so - don't want them waiting at my bus stop.
Can’t you see.....They are mutant black vampire zombies.
Here is a great “discussion of race”.
1) Obey the law.
2) If you attempt to carjack, rape, home invade, burglarize or rob, physically assault, threaten or menace, you can get killed, legally, so don’t do this.
3) If members of your race do this, it is and should be no more tolerable or excusable than if members of any other race do this.
4) The police and the courts will put you in prison if you break the law. Your fellow citizens can kill you, legally, if you break the law. So act accordingly.
Idiot and agenda-driven "journalists" are killing the once true, sound profession of journalism - the decline of which started a long time ago and continues to this day.
They are now bleeding out news sources that are still left. I guess we have to thank them for that.
Citizen journalism is one of the resorts that is growing; MSM is dying a much needed, albeit to me a much too slow, death.
