    I'm sorry about your brother, but that doesn't give you the right to be a jackass.

    You missed the whole point of the diary - it was a racist shooting, and the response is racist as well.  You know damn well if the races were reversed we wouldn't be having this conversation.  And, I have had this same argument with actual Zimmerman apologists, so yes, you do sound like one.

    Instead of attacking me and calling me names, why don't you actually defend your position?  As tragic as your history is, it doesn't give you carte blanche to say what you like without explaining yourself.  In fact, I might be more inclined to think that it clouds your judgment more than justifies it.

      I believe Zimmerman murdered Trayvon. I don't believe it was self-defense. I believe Zimmerman is racist and acted upon that racism. Why are you attacking me?

        Your first comment didn't sound anything like your last comment; I was only responding to what you wrote. Telling me to "watch my mouth", calling me a punk and various other insults wasn't very cool.

        Explaining your position instead of insulting me would have avoided this whole thing. Sorry it turned wrong.
