jeffery, what i suggest is that, we dont really need to compare every black on white beat down with implications of revenge for martin with what happened to martin because of zimmerman.
that is something else...another discusion
what is really important to look at here in the martin case is, why are young black men dressed a certain way , or, just out on the street, asumed to be guilty of something , need to be feared, and, why do various innocent unarmed black people get killed like this, thinking they are armed and dangerous? the police are guilty of this in various cases
this is the question and should be the major focus. its not about black on white crime...that is another subject. it clouds the issue of why are young black men getting stereotyped and killed when they are innocent ?
this is a reflection of racism in our society and even if zimmerman is hispanic, he is acting on a stereotype in our society that implicates young black men, as if they didnt have enough obsticles against them in a racist society anyway. does anyone here really think we arnt a racist society or trapped in our slavery past?
as well as, what do we really want out of "neighborhood watch"? do we ever want these people armed ? going after suspects? shouldnt there be some law that sais they have to stand down and only notify police?
