    After watching most videos on Youtube, I usually write it off as time wasted, however this is not the case for this video.
    I hate to take you away from making money, but I seen this earlier and thought some feedback from the brightest minds around would be beneficial. Share your thoughts, let me know how you feel towards this case.

    I didn't really keep up with the case but that video seriously annoyed me for I know that there are thousands of cases similar to it. As well as decisions very wrongly being based on a person's skin colour, too often a child is given the benefit of the doubt because they are young. Innocent people are sent down because they are stereotyped instead of being proven with real evidence.

    Hmmm, not sure if you watched the video or if you're familiar with the case, but I wouldn't put it that way. Situations like this are used to benefit few people, they manipulate and exploit it right in front of our eyes, imho.

    I didn't keep up with the case myself, but I agree with you.

    I've kept up with the case the whole way through, and here's what I think:

    Throughout the first ~two minutes of the video, I thought this would be the typical "Martin is a little boy going to buy candy" video. This is literally all you can really find when it comes to mainstream media on the topic, but after those two minutes it was apparent that this guy actually does know what he's talking about. I've seen a longer video on the matter that I'll link at the end that says a lot more about the case, if anyone's interested.

    One thing that I really don't understand is the people who get involved purely for no reason at all, without doing any research either. I'm not sure if other people have the same situation going on, but over here a lot of people seem to be riled up over this case. If they actually took a few minutes to research it there's fairly overwhelming evidence that Zimmerman is NOT a racist, and that this whole case being blamed on the race factor has absolutely nothing to do with it. Zimmerman's gated community that he was doing a night watch in had had tons of burglaries in the past months, and that's why the entire night watch was formed. He saw someone who he thought was suspicious (hey, Treyvon was actually found to be a burglar), and followed him. He had every right to do that. Now, here's something I usually ask people who are in favor of Martin:

    If you were being followed by someone and didn't want to be, would you:

    A) Ask them to stop following you
    B) Ignore it and hope it goes away
    C) Start beating the living shit out of them

    Here's that video I was talking about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bF-Ax5E8EJc

    Even if he did like to mix up some lean, what's that have to do with anything? Stupid.

    This case just needs to get buried, really.

    I thought Trayvon Martin was the guy who did the Boston bombing thing.

    Can't keep media cycles straight anymore. After awhile it all just blends together into irrelevance.

    Zimmerman is descended from African Slaves brought to peru, so how could be racist against people of African heritage?

    How is it retarded to list a fact about someone?

    George Zimmerman is of German,Peruvian and Afro-Peruvian descent. Not a "100% white skinhead" the media is trying to portray him as.

    Why are you calling people out in my thread? I do not appreciate that at all.
    I asked people to voice there opinions. I did not intend on having an argument, let alone having people be judged by their opinion.
