Someone should inform Joy Rasch that not all white people are racist despite her allegations. Someone should remind her about just who was "kidnapping Africans." It was other Africans, not white people.
George Zimmerman had a perfect right to be in that neighborhood -- it's where he lived. He was walking to his truck when he was attacked by a visitor to that area -- not a resident, who Zimmerman tailed because of a spate of robberies (one victim and her two small children were trapped in their home by the perps) in the neighborhood.
The only person spewing racial rants that evening was Trayvon Martin -- and get over the idea he was a "goody two-shoes." He had been kicked out of school three times for dope and fighting. He was not Mr. Clean by any stretch of the imagination, despite the pretty picture his mother kept showing everyone.
By the way, if any "thug" bigger than I am starts trying to beat me into the pavement -- I will do anything in my power to stop him, up to and including blowing a hole in him, which is what Mr. Zimmerman had to do to protect himself.
