Exactly! These are good boys! All good boys have pictures of guns and marijuana on their cell phone. And it normal for good boys to be kicked out of school.

How do we know the race of the person arrested? These thefts took place long befor Zimmerman's verdict. I don't understand your comments at all.

One racist using multiple names here? Or more than one racist on this site?

Either way, it isn't clear why race has anything to do with this alleged group of robbers.

The Zimmerman shooting of the innocent black kid turned into a race issue when Zimmerman notified a police dispatcher and used race as the basis for directing suspicion at the youth, stalking him, and murdering him.

Someone has to be mentally pretty fogged over to attempt any connection as above poster-posing-as-multiple-posters has done. Why to I collapse them all? Simple. It's the twisted logic along with its undergirding hatred that gives away the racist Willy every time.

Art..if you truly believe Trevon was innocent you have your head in the sand. If someone approached you as you were walking next to homes to stay out of the rain and asked you what you were doing...would you then attack that person or simply explain your own actions? Try to apply some common sense please....and try to get over your white's sad.

People have to stop using the construction "Race X; therefore, criminal." People of all races, religions, creeds, colors, national origins and sexual orientations commit crimes.

Hate is wasted energy, especially when the thing you think you hate doesn't really exist.

How come all the liberals who call for an "honest conversation about race" don't want anyone to speak the truth?

I don't view the comments section very often. But when I do, as for today, I always see William Tell throwing out the use of the LIBERAL this and that.

I cannot understand why conservatives always, and I mean always think the LIBERAL thought, action, or just conversation is ALWAYS bad or wrong.

To believe that is illogical. My belief is that conservatives are not always wrong and there not always right either. Same goes for liberals.

But if you keep saying things like you're just showing your ignorance! If you want to look and sound intelligent, keep an open mind and look at everything before you open your mouth. You just might agree with a liberal view once in a while.

Zimmerman only used race as a descriptor after the dispatcher asked him to describe the suspect - it was not the first words out of his mouth although the press cleverly edited the tape to lead the public to believe that.
