It would be accurate to say in FL, it is legal to:

Create and escalate your own crime- including killing and claim self defense- 

Thinking you're in danger is all that matters, whether or not it's true.

If you're the prey,  there is no legal self defense for- you accept whatever happens to you.

Well you made the post so I assumed you wanted to discuss something. The church members and pastor probably feel that way. Should the church rise above it well it all depends there are churches that believe that mixed races are a abomination and preach that and their congregation agrees with that. In the end I think all religious places have agendas.

Quoting tanyainmizzou:


I don't know what you want to discuss, but I think a church should rise above these things.  

Do you?


Quoting Mommabearbergh:

Okay it's a pic now what are we supposed to discuss because right now its just showing a pic of a sign of someone's opinion

CHICAGO (CBS) – A sign posted outside a south suburban church is generating a powerful debate over race in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict.

The marquee outside the First Baptist Church of University Park earlier this week read: “It Is Safe To Kill Black People In Amerikkka.”

On Saturday, a jury of six women in Florida acquitted Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Several comments on the church’s Facebook page took issue with the reference to the Ku Klux Klan in the word Amerikkka, with many saying the church’s sign is hateful and divisive and implies that all white Americans are racist.

The church responded by saying: “The message on the sign is not a message of hate. It is a message of awakening and call to action. It is a message not intended to divide, but to cause honest reflection in order to make this country a better place for ALL.”

The wording has historical precedence, according to the church’s Facebook page.

After the shooting of a black man by a white man in Montgomery, Ala., in 1949, Rev. Vernon Johns posted a sign outside the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church that read: “It Is Safe To Kill Negroes In Montgomery.”

The church has since changed the wording into a question: “Is It Safe To Kill Black People In America?”

“The initial sign, which has caused such a furor, stated, “It is safe to kill Black People in the United States of Amerikkka.” Much focus was placed on the intentional misspelling of America,” the church responded on its Facebook page.

“The use of “kkk”, was done to call attention to the fact that, just as in the ‘glory days of the KKK, it appears far too often that the murder of African Americans is permitted, and the mistreatment of African Americans historically and currently is far too cavalierly considered.”

The sign has generated controversy among University Park residents.

“I think he is right. A black man is still not safe in the United States,’ said Bettie Wayne.

“We know as black Americans what’s going on in our society. It doesn’t need to be exploited on a sign,” said University Park Resident Darnell Crawford.

The pastor also says he hopes the criticism he has received can be channeled to attack institutional racism in America.

Am I the only one that sees this as clear sarcasm? The fact that America is spelled the way it is should be a clear sign of that.

some people clearly dont understand the justice system,   the flaws that allow for a jury to not be allowed to know moving facts about the case.   it happens every time and needs to change.   but do we say its fine to murder your white wife because of OJ, not really.   we say - if you can afford an attorney good enough,  you might get away with anything.   money buys freedom,  always has.

I don't think you know what a non sequitur is if you think that.

There is no reason for your inital posts.

I think they are wrong for their sign.  They should be above it.

You just want to be vulgar because I suggest churches should be better than the race baiting crap going on.


Quoting autodidact:


what the actual fuck are you babbling about? were you meaning to post this elsewhere? it's an utter non sequitur here. 

Quoting tanyainmizzou:

hmmm


thinking that it is not open season on shooting black men, unless it is Chicago, is worthy of your post?


If you say so.

it might be due to your calling them pieces of crap.  That certainly isn't elevating the level of the discussion.

fan-fucking-tastic, as a matter of fact. 

thanks for asking. 

Quoting tanyainmizzou:

Yep.   Feel better now about being vulgar?

I bet you do.


Quoting autodidact:


how you just make assumptions

so you "engaged" this church as to the reasons for putting this on their marquee?
