I knew when I read those posts about the Trayvon Martin case, it would contain absolutely aphalling comments.  Some thought the President's assertion that Trayvon "would look like his son if he had a son".   But what you don't take into consideration is that these crude jokes:

Trayvon would look like Michele

Trayvon would look like a cheerleader

are complete BS.  You see we don't talk politically about Obama's two daughters because they are KIDS.  The press leaves them alone too.  But to make jokes about a dead kid who was a typical American teenager who met tragedy is just plain wrong.

Gurney had to know by his title  "Obama etc" that he would be disrespecting a dead KID.  Absolutely shameful.

Covers is going to soon need a " Trayvon forum "

Why did you simply not mention this in the thread where the offensive post is located?

Or maybe you should stop being so sensitive.

No Rick, you get all adamant about the attorney general, and I actually agree with your rant.  I know the President made a comment that might be tempting to ridicule.  But to say the kind of jokes about a well-rounded dead kid is over the line.

I said what I felt.

So if the kid was a Blood or a Crip, would the joke be OK?

If he was killed trying to plant an IED, would the joke be OK ?

We heard Whitney Houston jokes
We heard Michael Jackson jokes

We still only know the medias perspective of what happened
The media, Sharpton, Jesse, the black panthers etc

A 17 year old is dead, but lets not put him up for sainthood yet

If little Tray was so well rounded ..why was he suspended from the school at the time of his death....?

Kids get suspended for politically correct bullshit these days
its not always a major problem

I think if he had a friend who had a headache and Tray gave him some aspirin, some schools would say he was distributing drugs and suspend him

I think recently a girl in California was suspended for allowing a girl having an asthma attack to use her inhaler

I know some of you don't like the racial aspect and Sharpton coming to town to stir things up.  I'm not even going to comment on all that.  I called him well rounded by the way others spoke of him and by seeing him on the football team.  It seems when somebody says good things about the kid, some of you don't like that.  Too bad.

Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson were adults with adult problems.  I don't see the parallel here.  Yeah if the kid was busted for crimes and gang affiliation, then there would be reason for criticism.

This reminds me of the SarasotaSpin thread where he is bitching about bitching about his bitching...

basically being a girl

Promark...  you are dealing with the alias and alias supporters that keep chaging identities because of their inability to conduct themselves with class...

whether it be a compulsive liar/reneger (Woop), bigoted and racist (KKkroger), obsessed with guy issue (ritarda),  pedophilia (APK), or just plain ignorant (METS/5FF and current alias)...  They will simply be banned or disappear only to reappear and engage in the exact crap...

Get used to it, it is actually comical if you sit back and watch them continue to make fools of themselves... 

begging for more regulation and censorship is more a "wanna be mod" type of thing

Can someone link me to where this kid was well rounded? 

Can someone tell me if he was in fact beating the garbage out of Zimmerman when he got shot?  

There is a lot of sizzle around this story.  Great way for guys like Sharpton to make an extra buck.  

Good to consolidate the black vote around the prez and inflame racial tension.

I just do not have enough information to give a garbage yet, and it doesn't look like the media is in a hurry to get it out.

Rick, how do you consolidate a vote that is 93% in your favor?  I don't know of too many African Americans who were thinking of switching to the GOP.  If anything, Obama risks losing some of the White vote.  He's taking a political risk. Your argument holds no water.

DL ZIMMERMAN, ARE YOU GOING TO CALL 911 OR ARE YOU GOING TO SHOOT ME?

PEOPLE MAKING JOKES ABOUT DEAD KIDS SHOULD BE REPREMANDED.

By consolidating I mean that He will actually get those numbers to come out and vote.  

Even if they are disenfranchised (LoL) by having to prove who they are. 

Blacks are among the most fickle of voters, regarding attendance, they came out at the highest rate in recent history in 2008, but there is no guarantee that they will this time.  

An issue, like this, is perfect to inject himself back into the black community, after spending so much time wadding in the deep end with all of his bankster buddies.  IF he can look like he is anything but a stooge for corporations and banks, he might have a chance at getting a good turn out again.
