That's an interesting perspective, as it's very much true.Every once in a while a member in the ATS community will hit the nail square on the head, and those points should be emphasized.I haven't really commented on the Zimmerman situation much because I'd prefer to not get worked up over racial situations. Indeed, there are real racial prejudices happening every day. The minority employment rate and minority prison population come to mind as very real things we do need to take into consideration. Unfortunately, to the chagrin of some, stand your ground law is not even relatively close to being at the spearhead of racial discrimination. How it could even be considered as such is really astounding. It's one of those things that's really difficult to quantify because of the absurdity of it.This is clearly a case of divide and conquer. It is also clearly a case of if you create a perceived threat average men will not only endorse their rights to be taken, but actually applaud the action.We need to be very careful how we proceed, because this could end badly.

Dream Defenders, the main group that has been agitating the protest movement surrounding the Trayvon Martin case, was spawned by activists employed by a who’s who of the race-hijacking radical left.
From the socialist-oriented SEIU union to ACORN to Occupy to a litany of George Soros-funded organizations, the deep connections behind Dream Defenders raises questions about the motivation of an organization that claims to be a grassroots effort working to oppose racism.
Dream Defenders has been leading Martin protests since the onset and has been credited with agitating for George Zimmerman’s arrest.
