Charles Barkley sums it up perfectly


quote:

BARKLEY: Obviously I feel sorry that young kid got killed but just judging by the evidence, I don't think that guy should have went to jail the rest of his life. Something happened bad that night, obviously.

BARTIROMO: I like what the juror said, they both should have walked away. And if there is a shadow of a doubt, there is a shadow of a doubt.

BARKLEY: And let me tell you, Mr. Zimmerman was wrong to pursue -- he was racial profiling. I think Trayvon Martin, God rest his soul, I think he did flip the switch and started beating the hell out of Mr. Zimmerman. But it was just a bad situation. And like I said, the main thing I feel bad for, it gives every black and white person who is racist a platform to vent their ignorance.

That's the thing that bothers me the most because I watched this trial closely and I watch all these people are television talking about it. A lot of people have a hidden agenda. You know, they want their racist views, whether they are white or black --

BARTIROMO: The bias comes out.

BARKLEY: The bias, it definitely comes out. It was a bad situation, we all lost. And I feel bad for his parents. You don't ever want to see anybody lose a kid. (CNBC Closing Bell, July 18, 2013)

Just saw the other post from yesterday.



Anyway, I wish he'd get more airtime and on a network other than CNBC.

What is the white racist view that has been expressed?

His girlfriend told him that when he was talking to her before he was killed. She pretty much egged him on into a confrontation.

There are a lot of folks here who take exception to the empathy that Barkley expressed for Martin and his family. They believe that Martin was a thug who needed to be taken out, and they are the ignorant White people that Barkley alluded to.

The vast majority here in the other thread agreed with everything Barkley said and thought he hit the nail on the head.

So the only ones who have that view are white? Oh that's right, blacks who blame Trayvon's actions for his demise are not black and are white by default. Silly me!

What do you mean you mean, "you people"?




I heard his interview. He actually sounds like he has a good head on his shoulders.

I wish people would shut up claiming he racially profiled. Maybe he did and maybe he didn't, but people profile for an effin reason. How about all these black thugs quit being black thugs and then we'll stop profiling and stereotyping. Stereotypes are stereotypes for a reason. Quit thugging and we'll quit seeing you as thugs.

He washed his neighbors cars and painted people houses for extra money.
He would feed his mentally challenged uncle, Ronald Fulton.
He worked at the concession stand for football for FREE.
He helped a little girl learn how to ride her bike.
He would always help his mother out around the house.
He was an A and B student
He wanted to fly planes.
He would always fix peoples bikes when needed.
He never had a physical altercation with anyone (other than that night.)
And was preparing for college.

Trayvon was not a THUG. The defense did a great job of making him look like he was. Especially since he smoked weed. Wow. There are many people on this board who have all kinds of degrees and smoked weed.

I'm not so sure about that. There doesn't seem to be much empathy for the Martins on this board IMO.

Man, you're talking out of both sides of your mouth. First you say that no one knows whether or not Zimmerman profiled, and then in the next sentence, you imply that he did profile, but he had a good reason. Make up your mind Angry White Guy.

You honestly think a significant portion of posters on TD really don't feel bad for the Martin family, or feel that this was a tragic event that could have been avoided?
