We are talking about the Trayvon Martin case…
He vehemently feels Zimmerman was correct in the actions he took–he sees no inconsistencies in Zimmerman’s story and he sees the law allowing him to walk. He sees nothing wrong with ANY of the actions Zimmerman took. He feels Zimmerman is being unjustly treated.
I vehemently disagree with him on all counts.
Things boiled over yesterday–this guy called me a “moral coward” because I apparently don’t have the guts to see Zimmerman was correct. Here is the link.
If you want more background, read the last few pages before the comment.
We have been going back and forth for the last month.
So because I don’t support Zimmerman, I am a moral coward.
This guy isn’t even from the US and is telling me, who has served on a jury, what the law is and how the court systems work.
The nerve of these people.
Also, that thread seems to have become a base for people to express their ill-feelings and stereotypes about African-Americans
References have been made to:
“gangsta culture” (Whatever the fuck that means)
superior black athletic ability
Bullshit terms (that I usually hear floated around by right-wing bigots) are being used like “race-bait” and other compound terms that would make George Orwell proud.
I am tired of these people posting their bullshit over the internet for all to see.
And yes Steophan, you are an arrogant and amoral prick.
Shodan gets a mention too.
