Sorry if I misunderstood your wording. Exactly what bad law or laws were you referring to? The one about being able to protect ourselves or the one about being able to protect our friends or property?

I'd like to know what happened to this fight? Black-power mix tape

When did the movement cease to be about bettering yourself and rising above and devolve into scapegoating, bitching and whining until you get your way while simultaneously embracing ignorance?

Was that all a product of the CIA's intervention?

The Black Panther Party used to be about community, education, protection, self-reliance and have done more for 1st, 2nd and 4th amendment rights than most any other group in recent history.

When did they become some petty intimidation force out for vengeance?

And the good Dr. was attacked for his words. Apparently he too is a raging bigot.


Yep - - he really got blasted from some of the black community for telling them to be responsible for themselves.

Kind of sucks. Especially for blacks that are responsible for themselves and trying to raise a new generation of blacks responsible for themselves.


His wife pulling the race card in the death of her son - - - didn't help matters.

Hmmm....two sides of the same coin if you ask me;

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Racism is racism no matter which way you look at it and all instances are equally as bad as each other.

Guess MSM reaction depends on which section of society is being played at any particular time.

Really?

And would you have come out with your super facts and percentages?
Would you have had to "Bite your tongue" and not be "racist" if it was white people doing it?

Methinks not..



I wasn't be racist...you're the dumbass that is assuming it is. Why don't you quit aggravating me with your smart ass comments? You "methinking" too much is your problem right now. Quit looking into too much. Yes I said I wanted to use some "derogatory" words but you are the one that is insinuated that those words would be racist.

It's this law. Basically, it's a very wild west law that allows you to not even look for an alternative. Lets say you are in a car and a crazy man starts chasing you, unarmed. Under this law, you can simply shoot him instead of driving off and have a decent chance of not getting charged for murder. It pretty much gives you the authority of a cop without the training. We can see how (ir)responsibly cops use it so I don't understand why we thought it would be a good idea to make it universal.

Sorry for assuming you knew about it. It's part of the problem with the coverage of the story and their focus on race.

So I take you up on it, show you how you're being a tool, and you are, you even say you should have cooled down before writing and try and back-peddle, saying something about "if it was white people" you'd have said the same??

And now you start attacking and insulting me?

I see...

It's difficult when someone shows you up isn't it?

I've seen it countless times on here.

Well done.... you generalised and lumped all black people in together.

It was not my intention to offend, honestly. Just so you are clear on my point, the very reasons neighborhood watches are set up is because of the law's inability or willingness to do their jobs. Even if it comes to government, the right and duty was to correct by way of the people. Sorry if I seemed abrasive.

This law gives people the right to not be scared and have to run from every threat made towards them. It's not a law that gives you the right to go out and shoot anyone you like. You are taking a law that gives people who should already have the right to defend themselves legal matters to do so and making it out to be a vigilante type situation. This law is in effect for all citizens white or black. It is up to the individual to make sound decisions within the scope of the law. Anyone who attempts to use this law to commit unjust murder will be given a trial by a jury of their peers. This is what america is based on. The right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness. If someone is trying to keep my family or me from this I will use this law to protect myself and my family. That doesn't make me a murderer.

Peoples ignorance is not a reason to repeal a perfectly good law.

So wild west that 10 states use some variation?

It is intended to discourage aggression and may not even apply in Zimmermans case, he is claiming self defense.

This is exactly what you said:
"Would you have had to "Bite your tongue" and not be "racist" if it was white people doing it? "

What part of my post is racist? Maybe I'm just an ignorant white boy but I'm pretty sure I didn't say anything racist. You do say I'm being a tool which ok I won't disagree with you there because me seeing this video made me write angrier than I should have been so I'll give you that. The fact you said I was being racist is what really got me upset. If I had come out and said certain racist remarks about this then for sure you could throw me in there but I wasn't and that seriously was not my intention. The word "derogatory" is in no means a reference at racism. I had no beef with you until you started the racism crap.

Just to clarify, if all or nearly or people exercised the right to keep and bear arms, perhaps the "drive-by" rate would go down. Imagine if a whole area were to defend against such, and "bangers" had to face a gauntlet to get at their enemy or to escape from an attach!

Regardless bro...we're fighting over something petty. It's shown we won't agree so no need to prolong our pointless battle. Sorry for calling you a dumbass and we all need to fight against this race war and unite in peace.

This concept always cracks me up.

In ancient times man built walls around the city.

We've come so far.

You are more than likely right, but we can always hope for speedy recovery for humanity from what I like to call, "cranial-rectal-insertion"!

I sorta like the stand your ground laws.

But, I am the sort of person that never leaves my home unless I have to.
You come on my property, trying to threaten or hurt me or mine, yeah, I want to be able to shoot you. I'd probably just shoot you in the leg though. I don't care if you are the world's only purple person.

I just wish more people were happier like I am. With a home they like to be at, with a family and loved ones to spend time with, and lots of fun hobbies to enjoy.

Then we'd have less of these problems ALL the way around, class, race, poltical party- whatever divides us that's convenient to keep us from getting whatever we REALLY need.

Love & Security. That doesn't mean 'homeland security" HA or police at every corner making roadstops and frisking people either. Can't have true security without love.

Who is to say we wouldn't need to do that again if gangs/other violent groups grow big enough to overpower local law enforcement? We havent come far at all
