The concept of race is deep rooted and it is harming the US. Fundamentally, it divides the nation at all levels from president election to daily workplaces, profoundly.

Gallup/USA Today poll findings:

51 percent of black people said Zimmerman is "definitely guilty" based on the information available, compared to only 10 percent of whites.

16 percent of black people said there had been too much media coverage of the shooting, compared to 43 percent of white people.

73 percent black Americans think Trayvon Martin's shooter, George Zimmerman, would have been arrested if Martin had been white. 33 percent of white people said the same thing.

George Zimmerman is hispanic.   Well...half hispanic, to look at him, people would just see another mexican.

I do believe that race is playing a part here.  African-Americans remain the most discriminated group in the US.

The biggest hurdle is going to be over-turning the 'stand your ground' law - which is ridiculous anyways.  

It was the gun lobbyists that put that into place.

On one hand, Hispanic is linguistic, not race; on the other hand, the poll result is grouped by US accepted "races".

Bush's Patriot Act vs Civil Rights!

This post was edited by cestmoi at 2012-4-7 09:02

Huh? What are you talking about?

USAnians collectively rejected civil rights per se.

USAnians signed away their civil rights with the Patriot Act, the same civils rights their forefathers fought and died for.

Incidentally, the Obama presidency was signing into law a bill which allows law enforcement agencies to collect and retain detail of people who are not suspected of terrorism or linked in any way form or manner to acts of terrorism.

Think about it, 300 million people, assume 1Gigabyte of data each, 300 million Gigabyte of data. Hmm...
Let the dice fly high
