As death threats related to the upcoming George Zimmerman trial verdict continue, one protester outside the Seminole County courthouse is signaling just what kind of “justice for Trayvon” he’d like to see.

Top selling shirt outside Sanford Fl court house

So a teenager gets arrested for wearing an NRA shirt to school, but a grown man wearing a totally racist and outright threatening t-shirt is fine.
Just imagine if this situation were reversed and someone had a shirt with a pic of Trayvon and the n-word on it. The MSM would be going nuts!

So you're OK with free speech as long as you like it. Aren't you just as bad as the scary left then?

Actually with his reference to the NRA shirt, he was. He's saying it's OK to wear a t-shirt if he agrees with the message.

Im all for free speech if it is granted equally across the board

how is it a teenager gets arrested for wearing a NRA t-shirt at school, or the female collage student that was told to take off her cross

what if i wore a t-shirt that had a picture of Martin with the "N" word on it what do you think would happen?

i gave that as an example to point out the hypocrisy not to make an argument to limit speech if you didn't see that then your being purposely obtuse or has no knowledge of the word "hypocrisy"

Racism is defined as the belief that one race is superior to other, particularly when that superiority is perceived as innate. Please explain how those shirts indicate racism according to its actual definition.

i guess you dont think the word craker is racist

educate your self

Racism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

no where does it state only ones in a position of power can be racist

what are you trying to refer to is a definition of racism given by race baiters like your self as an attempt to excuse racism in minorities

a poll was made recently and even blacks say blacks are more racist then whites

Among black Americans, 31% think most blacks are racist, while 24% consider most whites racist and 15% view most Hispanics that way.

More Americans View Blacks As Racist Than Whites, Hispanics - Rasmussen Reports™

I bet your feeling like a fool about now

Case re-opened. "Cracker" isn't a racist term. It's a racial term. Case re-closed.

Sorry, but you lose pal... That is a derogitory word for white people... Therefore it is just as racist as the "N" word.

The exact definition of racism is controversial both because there is little scholarly agreement about the meaning of the concept "race",

Taken from wikipedia.

Let's see, your weak argument or wikipedia.......hmmm.............hmmm...............wikipedia it is!!

But I know, in the face of fact, liberals simply know more because they "feel" it right??

It is derogatory. It is also racial. It is not, however, racist. And it not even close to the n-word. I win, baby girl.

If a white person puts the "N" word on the back of a shirt with a picture of Trayvon on it, are you saying that's also not racist?

Not necessarily racist, but certainly more likely to be racist than "cracker" which is racist 0.01% of the time.

That's what I thought... The double standard at work
Well, no. A double standard is when a different set rules are applied to two similar or identical situations. "Cracker" and "nigger" are said/written in different contexts so there's no double standard. That's the entire point - they're different.

Nope. Also, you're a super bad speller.



of coarse you don't, you don't think any derogatory word used to describe Caucasian people is racist

is any of these names racist?

Honky, Cracker, Redneck, gringo
Dago, Eyetie, WOP, Guinea, Kraut
Mick, Paddy
Kike, Christ killer, Heeb, Hymie
Polack, Peckerwood, Wigger, Whitey

I bet you dont think any derogatory name other then the N word is racist
