Exactly! And that was the point i was trying to make. An image was formed that was based on information given that turned out not to be true.

If someone steps forward to speak out against that picture, he or she is immediately branded as a racist.
No doubt about it, my friend. I've said that from day one!
This whole incident should never have been about race, only right and wrong.
Playing the race card is a tool that weakens the merits of any situation, in my opinion. It is too often used in situations where race is not even a factor and almost always causes friction. Then again, that is what the users of it want.
The "race card", is ALWAYS played by Rev. Al, and his backers. It has bitten him in the butt before, and will again.
Right or wrong, Zimmerman thought that Trayvon was acting suspiciously, so he followed him.
Trayvon saw this, and tried to jump ugly with Zimmerman.
Speculation. The truth is this: an altercation occurred and George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin with a licensed handgun that he had in his possession.
After getting hit several times by Trayvon, Zimmerman defended himself with a licensed firearm.
In my opinion, that is to be determined.
With all due respect to the Martin Family, the punk got what he deserved.
I will agree that media coverage would have remained within the State of Florida.
If Zimmerman was a black man too, NOBODY outside of Orange Co., Fl. would have heard about what happened. THAT is the real tragedy of this case.
No doubt about it!
The media is way too biased in these incidents.
I respect that.
This is my opinion, and i'll stand behind it!
