    You wondered yesterday how the thread on the Oklahoma killing got off on a tangent about Martin/Zimmerman? It’s taking an isolated case and extrapolating into a larger argument, whether it fits the facts or not. Like here.

    My post was simply to question the true source of these types of attacks. The whole “gun” portion was a joke. As was the whole “video game” portion. How about we blame rap music? See another joke of the similiar nature.

    Of course there was none of that in the Zimmerman/Martin case.

    Joking or not, it was enough to fan the flames. Apparently every case with a black defendent will be used to prove how unfairly Zimmerman was treated by everyone who hates white people, I guess.

    so apparently there has to be a mention of the Zimmerman/Martin case for every thread involving a homicide and race relations.

    We can’t risk it. They’re too dangerous.

    Gee. I wonder.

    Nah, can’t be that.

    The male suspect has been charged with first-degree robbery and first-degree murder.

    They simply chose an easy target, and probably would have happily beaten and robbed a 90 year old black man as well.
