Who's paying attention to this case? What are your opinions on it?

Tired of hearing about a guy getting tarred and feathered unjustly for political reasons.

One big he said she said (can't think of a better way to say it now really, something along the line of nobody knows) with one dead guy and loads of people that have a agenda to spread. Oh and one guy that can't wait for it all to end.

I agree that there are racist and political agendas on both sides. You must admit that race plays a huge role in this case; a black teenager walking down the street was killed by a white man.

Are registered Hispanic voters counted as white (I'm new to this race thing so oh god please don't beat me)?

It depends, since there are black Hispanics.

It depends on the race of other party to the crime. If a Caucasian commits a crime against a Hispanic (or a Hispanic commits a crime against a Caucasian), then the Caucasian is “White” and the Hispanic is a “racial minority.” If a Hispanic commits a crime against a Black person, then the Hispanic is “white.” Curiously, if a Black person commits a crime against a Hispanic, the Hispanic is still Hispanic and not white.

Because it has gotten a ridiculously disproportionate amount of news coverage and I just don't care to talk about it any more.

The fact that this is accurate is scary as !@#$ to me.

Exactly my point. Your description of the facts is biased towards race violence. Suddenly it was a white man, not a hispanic.

So while I will admit race is a large factor in how the case will play out, I haven't seen anything indicating it was motivated by race.

He is half-Hispanic. The fact that he was killed by a non-black person makes it a race issue.

Only to the completely ignorant race blind fools who do not care about the truth.

Only to the completely ignotant.

 

Exactly, I was not speaking for myself. The argument in this case is whether or not Zimmerman stalked and killed Trayvon Martin.

Is it a race issue if it was self-defense? Is it a race issue if a non-white person robs or kills a white person?

That's not what happened, nobody was robbed, nothing like that happened. A kid was walking down the street minding his own business, and some crackpot who thought he looked suspicious followed him down the street, a fight broke out, and someone was shot.

 

To answer your question, yes it is. Anytime someone from one race kills someone else from a different race, it is a race issue. The thing is Blacks make a bigger deal out of it.

Were you there?

Also, that's silly if a German American kills and Irish American or an Italian American or an Iranian American is that racist?

No, but based on evidence that is my theory on what happened.
