This by-line reads, Face facts about race in America, yet many comments are un-factual supposition, the kind only silver tongue devils write for the silver screen.

The posting are nicely written fiction on par with a short story with only the names are real all else is creative writing.

Some comments are even prefaced to give credibility, while experiences are nice to recall and help in making choices they are not in any way reason to entertain as facts without evidence.

Oh, I could use this scenario and write it as I chose to make either party guilt without facts but to what end. This the real world and facts are required to show guilt. The double-jeopardy trial is over, STOP the insulting horse puk and quit blaming others for failed behavior.

Zeppert1: GZ is a celebrity, the role he played is very much in line with Americas beliefs and laws, so I don't think his life is kaput as you would have it.

Present it to the judge not me, I will try very hard not to prophesize what those involved should have done for another outcome to be had.

GZ has the support of many folks, I suppose anyone going after him might well be concerned for themselves too., crazy is not isolated to any one group.

The double-jeopardy trial is over not guilty. This should have been presented to a Grand Jury to see if it passed muster, but who cares GZ was a Hispanic. America keeps marginalizing Hispanic until it comes to a head and we see the real action in the streets come to life.

I think it is about time the Hispanics had a million man march to the White House. The undemonstrated weight Hispanics have as a group is yet to be let loose, stop the persecution of GZ, STOP IT.

Would-a, could-a, should-a, all a bunch of malarkey. I guess TM' dad thinks white folk are lucky and better than any other race, now that fits a racist remark.

I think I need to start packing heat, America is not getting any better. Race relations are worse now than at any past time in American history.

GZ, had a right to carry and was fully qualified. Never let anyone take your gun, and if you upholster shoot to kill. Don't waste any rounds make a kill with every round. Just ask any Vet. they will tell you that is what you do. It may sound harsh but when your life passes before your eyes and you made the mistake of thinking I don't want to hurt them, see-yah, dirt nap time.

There are plenty of cow-patties to go around, everyone has stepped in one whether knowingly or not. When racism is talked about, why is it conceived to only mean Black Folk. There are many ways and many combinations of races in which racism is spread in America and all around the world for that matter.

Every country has its demons, scapegoats, and even preferred assassinated character race. America has place a hardship on many races in the past, yet now some citizens are backed by our government in this marginalization of Hispanics.

Blacks have never been rounded up and deported knowing full well their slave-working-visa were expired. Look race in America comes in many dimensions and it is not only limited to Blacks.

The atrocities that Chinese, or Hawaiians' have endured at the hands of other races 1800, doesn't give them any privileges today, so why are we talking about racism as though it can only be Black.

We all think allot of ourselves and have a high esteem, but there are many folks in darkrooms that plot ways to derail us or others like us. Life is full of challenges, some are our own shortcoming and some are of the kind we cringe about hopping never to be on the short-end of that stick.

America in 2013 and race is still an issue, well get over it, individual racism will never be eradicated. Institutional racism can be somewhat controlled and whenever discovered within government influenced organizations they are made to pay and change.

Part of being an American is to be able to make choices without having to explain ones preferences. Selectiveness in the home is part of one's pursuit of happiness, but when rounded-up into a mob it is no longer tolerable, as with DOJ organizing protests.

For example singer, song-writer Stevey Wonder, has made it public to boycott any location with stand-your-ground laws in effect. This is well within his right, as would be anyone who finds his repugnance of the law reason to boycott his concerts, dvd', or music. Folks choose daily to boycott or, in other words, not buy goods or services from commerce that is not in tune with our needs.

IMHO, there seems to be a double standard raising its ugly head within the Black Community, that is counterproductive and rubbing race relations raw in America. This monster is born of failed parenting and misconception of entitlement to actions without consequences.

It is very unfortunate that because of this attitude the learning curve once in the adult world leaves little room for correction, with somber results if not grave.
