I have been arguing with people on FB page "Iluvbeingblack" and Iron Butterfly nailed it. Repeatedly, my morality, charachter or ethics has been called into question. The funniest thing is, my main point on that page has been "We don't have all the information" and "all the facts aren't in" but that was enough to get my life threatened. I also noticed people were posting the home address of the police chief and calling for his lynching. There were many people like there are here, who simply do not believe that there is another side to the story.
Many people I have talked to are sickened by the misinformation. A TYT video with Cenk says that Zimmerman is a white person, when he is clearly a multiracial Hispanic. (is this really how far they have to stretch things to paint white people as racist?) The NY Times has called Zimmerman a "white-hispanic" lol. I guess they are inventing terms now? Forum goers who are used to the filth poster here may not be surprised, but many people are. From what I have seen, most people base all their fantasy facts on the possibility that Zimmerman may have called "them" coons. (was Trayvon alone?) If you ask me, it sounded like he said "fuckin fools". Either way, you can't be sure what he said....but like that matters, right? Even the audio people who isolated the comment and boosted the volume cannot be sure what he said.
Nobody has even heard the other side of the story, yet people are calling for blood and holding skittles rallies all across the country. Of course Obama did not bring any calm to the situation with his comments, and instead further fanned the flames.
This all makes sense if you read the book by Obama's hero "Rules for Radicals" by Saul Alinsky (dedicated on page one to Satan). The media plays by these rules too.
Hmm, bit of an odd take on the story, at least from my perspective. All of the reporting I've read mentioned the racial element, but made no claims that Zimmerman was white. I'm not sure that TYT is really a major news source, so at least from my POV, you're setting up a bit of a strawman, if that's your main bit of evidence.
I guess I'd take issue with the strange claim that somehow the "other side" hasn't been given a chance. It's a bit of an odd claim given that Zimmerman was not charged, and his side was taken at face value until protests saw the case being re-examined.
Also, your argument makes slightly less sense if you think Saul Alinsky is involved in any way at all, and that's with your argument teetering on the edge of incoherence as is.
