“Zimmerman doesn’t last a year before the hood catches up with him,” Cruz Tweeted before later deleting it.

Earlier Sunday, Cruz decided to apologize as well:

“My tweet last night was my initial interpretation of the reaction I was reading on twitter,” Cruz wrote. ”I immediately realized my tweet was a mistake and I apologize, that’s why I deleted it. I believe conversation not confrontation leads to change and progress. I never have and never will advocate violence under any circumstances and I pray that we all encourage and educate each other. The death of Trayvon Martin is an unthinkable tragedy that is any parent’s worst nightmare. As a father, I want my daughter to grow up in a country that uses this tragedy to heal and grow and progress. My prayers continue to go out to Trayvon Martin’s family.”

Thanks

My first guess was a sports celeb second was a Hollyweird celeb; neither of which I pay attention to.

So the answer to the second part of the question is we shouldn’t.

I guess Victor figured out from his homies in the old barrio that Zimmerman isn’t actually whitey-white like the news been sayin’......

Zimmerman doesn’t last a year before the hood catches up with him

First he says this, then he backpedals and says that we need to have the conversation. Kind of like Trayvon: instead of having a coversation, his first reaction was, as a member of the hood, to "catch up" with Zimmerman and attack him.

I guess you didn’t realize, the left did forgive her. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson rushed to her support. She is one of them after all. I still don’t understand why Freepers go around saying Democrats are the real racists, then when they find a racist Democrat, they rush to embrace her. She’s friend with Michelle and the President, let them defend her warped view of the world. I’ll pass.

The backlash from the left has cost her an estimated 12 million. That considered, I don't think she feels forgiven. Moreover, I have never "embraced" her nor have I defended her. And I am aware of the fact that she is an Obama supporter.

Maybe her own lousy behavior cost her $12 million. Personally, I would not want to be paying a person who treats staff and others in the unprofessional manner she did. I know people like that. No thanks. (By the way, people keep saying the woman who sued her, Lisa Jackson is black. Not true, Lisa Jackson is white) She may feel entitled, and like she doesn’t deserve the consequences of her actions, because she’s a Democrat, but I disagree.

To paraphrase the little kid in the Bad News Bears movie. Hey Cruz, you can take your apology and shove it up your .....!

Can you imagine what would happen if some white guy (referring to the Klan as the “hood”) had said that after the OJ trial?

Not only is Lisa Jackson white, but the case she brought had nothing to do with race. And if you read any of my comments at the link I provided you would discover that my biggest objection in the entire affair was that Deen did nothing more than any other liberal does, the only difference was I believe libs mistook her for a southern conservative because of her accent. Robert Byrd used that word as recently as 2001 and did so with impunity. Alec Baldwin, who attacks gays and blacks does so with impunity. The list goes on.

I personally don't think Americans should be punished for using their freedom of speech. I also don't like the selective outrage of the left. But that is the society we live in.

So, his prayers go out to Trayvon Martin’s family...who, when their son did not come down for breakfast, the FIRST place they checked was juvenile hall to see if he was there....AGAIN!

Victor Cruz is only worth fantasy football points. Definitely not any thought provoking comments. Score TD’s for your team and shut up moron.
