Default ....racist...

Althouse: "The family rescued by George Zimmerman after a rollover crash in Florida are terrified they will become targets for hate mobs."

The family who was rescued by Zimmerman want to thank him, but they're afraid that will make them targets of those who want to kill Zimmerman.

Soooo, are they racist for thanking Zimmerman, or racist for being afraid of Zimmerman-haters? Either way, RACIST!

Not to mention the other things he's done that are basically above and beyond what most folks do for their communities. Including getting the Chief to quit because of civil rights concerns.

A wise man once said:

Quote:
Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence: nor is the law less stable than the fact; if an assault was made to endanger their lives, the law is clear, they had a right to kill in their own defence; if it was not so severe as to endanger their lives, yet if they were assaulted at all, struck and abused by blows of any sort, by snow-*****, oyster-shells, cinders, clubs, or sticks of any kind; this was a provocation, for which the law reduces the offence of killing, down to manslaughter, in consideration of those passions in our nature, which cannot be eradicated.

...

Because the evidence was unclear as to which soldiers had fired, it was better for the jury to acquit all eight defendants than mistakenly to convict one innocent man. The reason is, because it's of more importance to community, that innocence should be protected, than it is, that guilt should be punished.

...

The law, in all vicissitudes of government, fluctuations of the passions, or flights of enthusiasm, will preserve a steady undeviating course; it will not bend to the uncertain wishes, imaginations, and wanton tempers of men.



could you imagine what america could be like if men like the above were not the founding fathers, but men like FDR, or Al Sharpton, or Obama, or Hitler were?

In all seriousness: have you not ever been to a major North American or western European city in which subway or other light-rail transit is common?

I'm not sure which city you're referring to. I would encourage you, however to visit NYC and transit through any of the following stations during rush hour:

Times Square Station
Penn Station
Grand Central Terminal
Atlantic Ave / Barclays Center

Of those listed, I've only been to NYC Penn station during weekday rush hour and there's been no drama. Is that the point?

It's my point, and since you're a local, your opinion in the matter is especially relevant.

To an outsider, Penn, Times Square or PABT during afternoon rush would seem like complete mayhem. To those familiar with them, it's just transportation.

(I'm not entirely certain what Brainey's point is.)

Okay, no major media news coverage. Oh but Detroit filing for chapter 9 is making all the headlines.

Serious all the major news channels could devote ALL their time to this city, and couldn't cover all the bullshit.


Edit* I've been in this thread since the beginning, but i like to just read and take in all the information from all the sides. I tell you, i get more useful facts that i would otherwise never see had i not been in this thread. Talk about the American persons being robbed.
To follow up on this.

Man faces multiple charges in Dearborn Family Dollar murders | News - Home

The man was arrested.



Black man kills two white kids, in a mostly white neighborhood. (inb4 racist)




I hope that guy spend the rest of his miserable life being beaten and raped in prison until he is shanked to death. I'm just glad they caught him.

I think the comments in the article are pretty funny.
