He makes a lot of good points. 

For those of you who pretty much got exited and celebrated his acquittal, what is there to celebrate?

I think people have a misunderstanding of the law. He was acquitted because there wasn't enough evidence against him. I didn't find anything he did, based on the tapes and evidence submitted in court, that he was racist in any way. It was a circumstantial case. No one won. Both contributed in different ways to the outcome. 

As far as racist.. I think Martin proved he was racist when he spouted "Crazy Ass Cracka"  I don't care if it's an a or er at the end. That's a racist comment just the same. The comment is derogatory.

 Stephanie329, what exactly is wrong with you?  Are you so bored that you couldn't think of anything better to do than to start a post by calling people names, and all because they simply happen to disagree with you?  I'm sorry, but whoa are you ever projecting!!  Get a life, ok!

This was a case of profiling not racism. Zimmerman profiled Martin because he fit the description of other burglars in the area, a young black male. He was acquitted because of a lack of evidence.

I personally think Zimmerman was guilty of manslaughter but I don't believe the evidence was there to prove it.

Our legal system worked exactly how it was supposed to.

What about Martin profling Zimmerman? If Trayvon did indeed attack Zimmerman when Z was on his way back to his truck, then it looks like Martin was likely intent on teaching the "rapist" a lesson with his fists. (Considering the testimony of Trayvon's girlfriend at the trial.

LMAO! This is a quote from the video. Got your attention apparently. You have no clue as to my opinion on the case, so your projecting that I'm calling names because "they simply disagree with me" is outright fabrication on your part. 

Since you to the time to open it, do you want to give your opinion on Zimmerman fans? If you are one, and you seem to be, did you celebrate the verdict?

profiling is an extension of systems of racism.

He's the dead, unarmed teenager, Meadow. All we have to go on is George's weird preceptions.

Maybe he didn't want to lead the creeper back to the house with the 12 year old in it.

He admitted to stocking and killing a child. You don't need evidence with a statement from the mouth of the man the whole case is wrapped around.

So you agree with killing kids? You agree that grown people can kill kids for feel threatened?

The video won't play for me!

Is there a website with what he said?

Maybe that was the case. Either way there is not enough evidence to judge who is "guilty" of what
