    whereas the right wing is pushing this Christopher Lane kid whose death was tragic as some kind of a white equivalent. Christopher Lane is their Trayvon with a pinch of Benghazi, as in, why isn't the President also focusing on this, he must not care about white people wink wink nod nod.

    And now we have conservatives waxing idiotic trying to find their bizarro white kid version of Trayvon, because god forbid a white conservative isn't the biggest victim in all this. I saw one of the schmucks on Fox's The Five compared a white kid getting bullied to Trayvon and bemoan why Obama wasn't outraged too over some bullshit Fox is moaning about.

    So on one hand you have the embarrassing way conservative pundits and politicians have responded to the TRAGEDY that is Trayvon Martin's killing while at the same time hosting Drunk Black History with Bill O'Reilly nightly as he whitesplains to you people what your living parents who experienced it don't know because sneak liberals tricked them, all while insisting that liberals have enslaved black people to food stamps by not free markets do their trickle down magic on all of us in a golden shower of Reagan Approved splendor.

    Zimmerman killed Trayvon and he is free today, out buying bigger guns. There is no white equivalent to that in America. If a grown black man killed a white child in self defense in Florida does anyone actually believe he'd be free and gun shopping a year later?

    Yeah, I'm embarrassed to be white by these people. I will say so. I was wearing my Kepi in Kentucky once and had a white guy congratulate me on the rebel hat. I had to explain to his dumb ass that it was blue for the Union cause we won, he mighta missed that on Fox News.

    The conservatives in America are our National Embarassment. We are not apologizing for America we are apologizing for YOU, Republicans.

      because someone suspected he might commit a crime but because the killers were bored.

      It does not equate.

      But then facts are not useful to those who push that agenda.

      Just like being watched in a store does not equate to racism being dead in this country.

      What's really sad is both deaths are just a part of the culture of violence in our country and no one is talking about that.
