Parlay, my point is merely that slavery is not something that happened just on American soil 250 years ago. Many cultures have experienced slavery over time. To say that American slavery is a debasement unheard of in human history, is a bit much.

KO- Anti... Wrong it was Egypt with the First written language , first math , greatest builders going back 4000 years ago not 2000 years ago .Greece was smart to learn from the African who conquerd Italy ! King Hanibal.I guess your a product of the bad school system you talk about .Don't talk what you do not know.
I`m intelligent enough to say I do not know much about Egyptian history. But I know enough that it wasn`t only Egyptians that built that civilization. It was slaves, and they weren`t all black. Hence the original point I was making, slavery is part of the human nature. Prejudice is human nature.
BTW, Hannibal, although had victories in italy, did not conquer Rome. Rome eventually expelled the Carthginian`s, leveled their city and rebuilt a Roman city in it`s place.
BTW 2, Greece came before Hannibal. So the Greeks couldn`t learn much from someone who was born yet.

KO- guess you should have been on the prosecution team. With all that expert knowledge Zimmerman would have been a slam dunk case.
Man are you wasting your talents...

KO- "So what Greece had slaves or Rome !! They were evil as were any other country."
Now you are just showing your ignorance. Their society brought us the likes of Plato, Aristotle. They were masters in art, politics, science, technology.
The Romans had one of the greatest empires the world had ever seen. They built Rome, the first city to ever have a populace of one million people. Some of the roads they built 2,000 years ago still exist.

Parlay, "a debasement unheard of in human history." Really?
Please educate yourself. Every world power since the dawn of time has had their slaves, white, black, or whatever. They enslaved the peoples they conquered. Greeks, Persians. Ancient Romans didnt care what color their slaves were. And the lions in the Coliseum didn`t care either!

Hella, please read my earlier posts and explain to me how a travesty occurred. I am really interested to understand your train of thought.

CBD, prejudice and racism is human nature. It will never truly disappear as long as there are differences of color, religion, or economics. I`m sure the human race hasn`t progressed much since ancient times. And I don`t expect it to change much in another few hundred years.

TB - "The Fact You Are Leaving Out Is That The Entire Situation Does Not Occur If George Zimmerman, An ADuly With Training, Does Not Leave His Vehicle."
That is not a fact. One can easily say the situation does not occur if neither one was there that night. Or if someone was five minutes earlier or later, their paths would never have crossed. Or if Trayvon called 911 instead of a friend.
TB - "He Bears Some Responsibility, Whether Legal Or Not. I Do Not Feel Bad For A Man Who, Legally Or Not, Ends The Life Of Another. Trayvon Did Nothing Wrong Initially,And That Fact Is Irrefutable."
How does he bear responsibility if he shot someone in self defense?
TB - "Trayvon Did Nothing Wrong Initially,And That Fact Is Irrefutable."
By that statement you are admitting that he did do something wrong eventually. Which witnesses stated he was beating Zimmerman. That is irrefutable. What happened prior to cannot be proven one way or the other.
Bumbob - "George Zimmerman engaged in behavior that provoked a confrontation and ended in the murder of Trayvon Martin."
What exactly was that behavior? Being on a neighborhood watch? Investigating a suspicious person? Because from the point he was on the phone to the point he was getting beat, there is no evidence to indicate what happened.
Should federal charges be brought up, I hope for the prosecution has a better case. Otherwise it will be a waste of dollars.

I need clarification so I am asking for a clear, logical explanation. Feel free to respond if anyone can.
Innocent until proven guilty. That is how the law works, correct? As I understand it the situation played out as such. Zimmerman calls in a suspicious person in the area. He receives advice not to continue pursuit but does anyway. To this point we know no law had been broken. There was no indication or proof at this time that Trayvon was being racially profiled since Zimmerman did not use any racial slurs. Now, we go to a conversation that Trayvon was having on his cell phone at or about the same time. As the witness said on the stand under oath, Trayvon said he was being followed by a creepy-*** cracker. (A racial slur).
Moving forward, no one but Zimmerman truly knows who was the aggressor. No one witnessed who really threw the first punch but there were witnesses saying Trayvon was on top of Zimmerman beating him. So, these are the facts as I understand them.
My questions are, by the facts of the case how is this a case of injustice? How can people say this is a travesty? A tragedy, yes. Are people really looking for justice? Or is it vengeance they want?
This is an honest question. I`m just looking for someone to clarify. No "what if`s" or "what someone should have done".
A court of law does not deal with "what if`s."
If my facts are correct I want to understand how when presented with facts, can someone disregard them, form an opinion without any proof, then expect to make a strong, respectable arguement.

If my facts are correct I want to understand how when presented with facts, can someone disregard them, form an opinion without any proof, then expect to make a strong, respectable arguement. How do you protest about something you truly do not know about?
