Black is not a race either.
Since when does the Left worry about getting it right?

Methinks Lewis don’t know what impunity means.

Correct me if I’m wrong...

Are you white? If so, you're wrong.

I think the genius who came up with that theory was a demonrat rep from NY, Major Owens. Listening to Rush does pay dividends.

I’m not white, more like flesh colored.

Oh lord! I’m colored, I never realized.
Mom and dad never told me.

IIRC it’s from back in the day Rush had his TV show. I seem to remember a clip of it.

There is a reason other than Lewis’s normally ignorant historical epistomology that accounts for his use of the description of thousands rather than dozens of seemingly lynched blacks. The implications of THOUSANDS of lynched blacks rather than dozens is more inflammatory, particularly when you wish to agitate a mob.

We need to oppose such careless demagogery with fact whenever and wherever we can, lest it become common knowledge and conventional wisdom. Too many other unchallenged premises by the left have become ingrained; i.e. that conservatives are nazis and facists when the truth is that their beliefs are more akin to those shared ly the left.

Reality is that he was a 6'3 punk. They also don't report that he jumped from behind and overpowered the hispanic 5'2 Zimmerman guy

He was 6'0" and skinnier than Obama, Zimmerman was 5'9" and built like a brick outhouse.

Hard to know exactly what is true, there is so much media spin and second-hand comments out there. I have now found various reports of height and weight, a few that match what you say, and they all differ. I found the arrest report, with many pertinent facts on description blacked out. The arrest report does say that Zimmerman is 5'9, no weight indicated. So I stand corrected, thank you for the update.

The arrest report does corroborate other statements I made, that the police reported Zimmerman was found with his back wet with grass stains, the back of his head was bloody, his nose was bleeding, and he was treated at the scene. Martin was found face down on the grass. Zimmerman had a Kel Tek 9mm. Other reports say the weapon had a full magazine, which indicates that only one round was fired, one in the chamber. Media reports were saying multiple shots but that is untrue.

Anyway, still sounds like self-defense to me, let a jury sort it out.
