Hate the System, Not the Zimmerman trial Jurors

I certainly am shocked and disappointed by the decision made in the Zimmerman verdict, and I would have hated to have been a juror in that case. Within the confines of the law, the jury may not have had much of a choice in their decision.Rather than fighting over the stupidity of the jury decision and the racial implications, we need to bind together and attack the root of the issue.Gun violence."Stand Your Ground" laws suck!Gun violence sucks!Children and teens are shot and killed every 3 hours and 15 minutes in our country! Shocking!...more

Stop

I have heard a lot about injustice this weekend. I have heard cries of racism, of bigotry, of "good ol' boys". I have seen people blame Florida, once again, for being backwards, for being Southern, for being unable to prosecute a case.I have seen the celebratory remarks of people that support George Zimmerman, I have heard the rallying cries of those that want to accuse the President of attempting to use this case to take away guns or create stricter gun laws. I have seen people post links to "news" articles that villify the victim.Stop....more

Zimmerman, an armed neighborhood watch volunteer, patrolling his housing complex one evening, spots a young man named Trayvon Martin, who appears not to belong....more

Turning Our Pain Over Trayvon Martin Into A Movement

It's raining hard in Charlotte this morning. As if Mother Earth is attempting to wash away the sour aftertaste left by three weeks of a "nothing's off limits" trial and a late-night verdict finding George Zimmerman NOT GUILTY in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. ...more

The Zimmerman Trial: Another Psychological Enslavement by the Left to Brainwash the Black Community

Around a half an hour ago the United States of America saw it's third controversial situation of Obama's second term.About a half an hour ago America began heading towards the beginnings of a racial anarchy, something the Leftist Confederates have continued to hope for the last 150 years.Turmoil has sprung with two different sides of an arguement: Zimmerman as trying to commit a murder to a black 17-year-old in Florida, and Zimmerman who "protected himself" in self-defense from a black teenager who called him a "white cracker"....more

Malala Day Takes Over the United Nations

Most girls celebrate their 16th birthday by getting their driver’s license, maybe a party. Not Malala Yousafzai. She’s recovered from her horrific head injuries after being shot by the Taliban last year for wanting to go to school, and today Malala spent her 16th birthday by going to the United Nations to rally for education....more
