Dateline: AMURKKKA - In the most stunning development since the revelation that the NSA is a shadowy, morally dubious organization that spies on everyone, America was shocked to learn that the Justice System is somehow sorta kinda stacked against African-Americans. Huh.

America, 233, blinked and scratched its head when the verdict was announced. It could have raised questions about why our legal system seems so woefully impotent when it's not chasing drug users. But instead it shouted profanities on Twitter and repeated baseless rumors of hate crimes before switching the TV back to Ow My Balls!

Yeah, call me cynical, but I saw this coming. We all know how even seeing a trial would be borderline miraculous if Zimmerman were a beat cop.....and thermodynamically impossible if Zimmerman were a Militarized cop on a drug raid. I guess some people thought that kind of leeway didn't extend to WANNABE cops. Welp, guess again folks. A 5'11 black kid in a hoody is still a THREATENING GANGSTA THUG until proven otherwise in 'post-racial america' and we actually have 'self-defense' laws in our crazy-ass gun-obsessed country that encourages people to live out their John Woo fantasies.

I'm not even gonna commit the self-harm of lurking FreepLand right now, because I know its being flooded with talk of open race war, guns, white victimization narratives, guns, OBAMA'S PLANNED RIOTS, absurdly racist photoshops, Islam for some reason, and more guns.

Wonderful. And other Kossacks wonder why I think this country is closer to a Fascist revolution than a Progressive one.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
