resulted in Moderate Libertarian Liberal. One more question goes another way than it replaces Liberal with Conservative.
Long term though, I think those types of killings have a very serious effect. Home values, companies looking to locate, school quality, neighborhood quality of life...
That 17 year old, multiplied by 250+ each year, creates an unstable environment that few will willingly invest in.
You and I, as taxpayers, will fund that which normal commerce has learned to ignore.
The point was that some are upset to the point of hysteria about the death of a black man at the hands of "white" man but don't give a crap about the multitude of black men who die at the hands of other black men. You don't see any hypocrisy in that?
This selective outrage is based on blatant racist hypocrisy. It isn't the "injustice" of "Lynching" that is the outrage. Blacks murder or lynch more innocent blacks in 10 years than were ever murdered or lynched by whites in 100. It isn't "Lynching" of whites by whites, blacks by blacks, or even whites by blacks, that get Liberals to cry "Outrage!", "Murder!", "Racism!", "Innocent Victim!"....It's ONLY when a black was lynched by whites that they claim those things, or even care.
Whites were Lynched by whites. Blacks were Lynched by whites. Blacks were Lynched by blacks. Whites were Lynched by blacks. But only when blacks were Lynched by whites does it become a racist conspiracy to keep the black man down.
And Lynching is still practiced by blacks in Africa and elswhere today, with no cries of outrage from the black community: Accused Witch Burned Alive in Papua New Guinea
to the point they falsified evidence to inflame racial outrage.

JESSE JACKSON: 'BLACKS ARE UNDER ATTACK'
And then there are the Countless Death Threats Against Zimmerman, A Man Not Proven Guilty that he and his family had to go in hiding from people worked up by the Liberal Mass Media and the 'Klan with the Tan', Jesse 'HymieTown' Jackson and Al 'Tawana Brawley' Sharpton, that they want him "Lynched". Do you honestly believe that if Zimmerman walked into many a black urban population and announced who he was, that he would be set upon and 'Lynched" by a mob??
And for all your posts claiming "let the jury decide", you yourself are willing to pass judgement and a sentence a man without a trial, based on just what a misleading media told you:
"Both Zimmerman and Martin maybe should have handled things differently. However, there's still no clear justification for using his firearm. He should atleast get a manslaughter charge."-Soulflower
"He shot an unarmed kid. That's more than enough to press charges in most places. I don't know what's wrong with Florida."
"I agree but theres enough for him to be charged with manslaughter" -Soulflower
“The media's the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of the masses.”-Malcolm X
"The rapists are beneath savage. Necklace them" -Kandace
"Necklace the shooter."-Kandace
"I don't think they should have shot him to death. Maybe shoot him to incapacitation and then everyone around join in to stomp him the rest of the way out of this world."- LadyHollman
"The only worthy response to a crime of such deep evil is to seize the perpetrators, bind them with ropes, gather a crowd armed with bricks, stone the perpetrators to death, and then pour gasoline on the remains and burn them."-kandace
I still don't understand what the Trayvon Martin case has to do with your weak defense of racial violence against Blacks.
I'm offended that in Black History Month you are trying to rationalize a form of terrorism against Blacks:
Lynching arose from the ashes of a ruthless and costly war that pitted brother against brother and father against son. The Civil War left a trail of blood and bitterness that twisted its way through successive generations and set the stage for a frenzy of so called mob justice that killed thousands of men, women and children, most of them black. And between the years 1880 and 1905, a period of twenty five years, not one person was ever convicted of any crime associated with these killings. Lynchings are, in effect, the most extensive series of unsolved murders in American history.
