“Other people have spoken about this a bit, but I’m frustrated and angry when I see other white people pulling the “I am Trayvon Martin” thing, because it’s so dismissive of the real issue, which is that we’re not Trayvon Martin. None of us ever will be. We’re George Zimmerman. Even if we don’t go out and shoot kids for fun, when we allow the images in the media to perpetuate the idea that young black men are violent, when our own speech (I don’t want to talk about the conversation I had to have at lunch today) perpetuates an idea of black Americans as criminals, especially young black American men, we are accessories to murder. We are creating people like George Zimmerman. That’s on us. And it doesn’t matter if we have black friends, or black relatives, or black ancestors– that doesn’t absolve us. In fact, it’s worse when we do, and say nothing, because it’s our loved ones who are suffering and we’re not doing anything to ease that.”
I hope that I will never be compared to George Zimmerman, because I am reporting all sides of this case, and I am not believing commonly-held stereotypes against African-Americans.
It’s the people who are racists who are just like George Zimmerman.
To the original poster… GO FUCK YOURSELF. I’ve had the shit kicked out of my for standing up against this shit by people of every race and color, for DECADES. All I learned was how to fight six guys at once. That is all I intend to learn.
I’m a fucking Irish-Italian American. You want to exclude people who are speaking out against this because they are not the same race as the victim?? People showing solidarity in the face of this insane injustice! WTF kind of message does that send?
The only good that can come out of this, and you want to keep it as message of YOUR hate.
I hate YOU. I want YOU dead. Not because of the color of your skin, but because you’re a fucking idiot.
You were right about only one thing.
YOU ARE GEORGE ZIMMERMAN!
YOU Tolerate this ignorance and hate, and are working even now to keep us divided by it.
I’m NOT Trayvon Martin. Bow your fucking head when you see me in my hoodie, and pray silently, because I’m older, meaner, and I shoot back!
I will help make sure the world will NOT be safe for hate mongers like Zimmerman, and you, and Santorum, and anyone else who makes “us against them” based on any criteria except how you behave among civilized people.
xoxoxoxoxoxo Listen to yourself, guy. You are very much like George Zimmerman. You’re the one making threats, wishing people that upset you to DIE. You’re no hero, stop posting pictures with your hoodie on. You don’t stand up for blacks and you make threatening posts toward people because you don’t like their ideas. You’ve shown us your true colors. No pun intended. (via darrylayo)
Have a nice steaming cup of “GO FUCK YOURSELF”!
Notice… you didn’t offer any better solution? Your entire “critique” was to tell me to “shut up”? With an always implied “or else”.
I’ll post whatever the fuck I want on MY BLOG.
It’s not people that “upset” me who I wish dead. It’s predatory entitled assholes who have no problem using violence to get their way.
You know why they do that…. IT WORKS!!!!
Most people see themselves in other people. If you’re a basically good person, you tend to give people the benefit of the doubt. You try to reason with them as you would want some one to reason with you.
The problem is, some people ARE assholes. They see everyone as themselves too. Assholes. They ignore reason and logic. They push their agendas relentlessly, and there is no limit to what they will do to get their way.
So what do you get when you have one person who will always back down to maintain relative peace, and one who will not stop until they get their way?
You get the current state of our society. As long as reasonable people tolerate the unreasonable, reason able will be prey to the unreasonable.
I’ve run from unreason as far as I intend too.
All these people understand is violence. It is all they respect. So the only logical thing to do is use their own weapons against them. It’s time to unleash hell on these assholes. It’s time to make them RUN!
When being unreasonable stops being a course of action that works, when it get’s THEM killed instead of US, they will coming rushing back to bargaining and reason.
Then we can be the better people. Until then… we have to sink BELOW their level.
This is a game of chicken to see who will swerve first. Why is it always us?
You have a right to your opinion… but I don’t have a right to mine?
If some one is loosing their right to their opinion here… IT’S GUNNA BE YOU!
If it’s going to be a world run by assholes… I might as well be the king of the assholes, because I CAN be reasonable, if you decide to be.
I’m not trying to be anyone’s hero… I’m just not being anyone’s victim anymore.
When you’re ready to discuss things based on facts, logic, and reason… when you’re ready to try to find a solution these problems that works for the vast majority of people… then you approach me.
While you’re being a self entitled little shit telling me how to live, you’re going to find a race to the bottom… until YOU swerve.(via joetomcollins) No, you thug. The issue is that you are making threatening intonations toward my good friend (the OP) and I am weighing whether the entire team needs to double down on you, do you understand me, bucky? Don’t let the Battlestar Starbuck icon fool you, I AM what we are talking about. I’m a black man who wears a hood until it is 70 degrees, I am the one that makes you George Zimmermans get nervous when I walk up the block. And it isn’t “your blog” when you’re reblogging my dear friend and ally and wishing her dead. You are not an ally. You are NOT DOWN. You are a bully and a thug and a coward. You should step back and think about yourself and examine yourself in society before you start ranting about who ought to die.
