Truth.

I think race is very much a factor in this case but not in the way that many people (black and white) seem to think. Race is the reason we even know about this case in the first place. Had it been black on black, nobody would have cared (or white on white for that matter). Had the black guy been the shooter and the victim white we likely still would never have heard about it and he'd likely already be serving out 25 years to life right now. This case highlights the sense that many of us feel (and that appears to confirmed tonight again) that when it's a young black man involved he is assumed to be the aggressor, the dangerous one. Self defense, apparently is more or less a given. It makes me very sad.

This t-shirt does not represent my view or the view of many black Americans. But then our view doesn't make for very interesting t-shirts nor is it suitable for being passed around as an inflammatory image to convince folks that he is the only victim here (and that those blacks really are pretty dangerous, I mean look at the t-shirts they are wearing!).

Much truth there.

It feels suddenly like it is open season on young black men carrying Skittles.

Just curious. What was disgusting about the law? As i understand, the jury must have looked at all evidence available and aquitted based on self defense. Is self defense disgusting?

I didn't follow the whole case but did the prosecution prove their case? I heard that it was overcharged and partly bungled.

Seems that people are trying to turn it into a civil rights case. Why would it be? From what I seen, it's about an overzealous neighborhood watchman profiling a man as a potential criminal. Then Trayvon profiled Zimmerman back.

What about Trayvon read "potential criminal"?

Think hard.

Shooting an unarmed teenager dead sure is.

From afar, the result fucking sickens me. Leaving aside gun laws, race, poor legal work, whatever, it still sickens me.

I read on Twitter that if Zimmerman had shot a deer without a hunting license, he would have received heavier punishment than he did here. Dunno if that's true, but if so...

Seems that Zimmerman is an idiot to get out of his car. He got his ass kicked and shot him. He is the reason Trayvon is dead. But Zimmerman was injured so it's self defense. Nobody will know the real truth. I do believe in self defense though. Too bad they couldn't convict Zimmerman on stupidity.

I said Zimmerman profiled him as a potential criminal. He called 911 and said that there have been burglaries in the area and Trayvon was acting suspicious. I'm not saying he was right. I'm saying that's what Zimmerman felt.

Why should I think hard Irvine? Confused.

What was Trayvon doing that cause Zimmerman to profile him as a potential criminal?

Did you see Zimmerman's nose and back of his head? Did Trayvon have any injuries until he was shot? Just curious cause i didnt watch the trial and honestly don't know.

LMAO at the deer w/o a license. He could have got life today. Doubt you can get that for a deer. Sad to compare it to a human life though.

He said that it was raining and he wasn't walking anywhere. He described him as a man with a hood. 911 asked him his race and he said he wasn't sure. Then Trayvon walked towards hom he told him he was black.

I never said it was criminal did I? Not saying it was criminal but enough to call 911 as a suspicious person in Zimmermans eyes.

Driving is less suspicious. It's a good thing I have a car.

Just wondering where all you white people are on the south and west side of Chicago? About 450 black males were killed last year in Chicago, mostly by black males. Where are you when it comes time to come to my hood to protest? Are you scared? We can protest during the day. You don't give a shit. You only care if the one in a hundred times a white guy kills a black. You could care less when a black kills a black. Or a black kills a white. It happens every day. Irvine, you are an idiot, blacks commit most of the burglaries.

You're not thinking straight. He was suspicious. Nobody knows what happened after that.

Just wondering why LuckyNumber, why don't you come to my south side to protest all the black on black crime?

About 450 black men killed 450 black men in Chicago. Bring you're people to me. Come to me and protest. Are you afraid? Why focus on one white person who killed s black man? Why not follow all the black men who are killed by black men? Oh you don't care about them. You're only interested if a white man kills a black man. Meet me today at 67th and Ashland to protest.

This is silly. What does it even mean? He was found not guilty, so obviously any punishment for any crime whatsoever would be heavier
