Let us please use proper terms. Racism is the belief that people of a certain race, mainly the Negro race, are genetically inferior to another race.
Bigotry is the hatred of another race, be it Negro, Caucasian, Mongoloid, or any of the sub races like Arab, Indian, Hispanic, etc. etc. simply because they are of a different race, or might I even say 'tribe'?
Prejudice is to pre-judge something as being either good or bad without any real information.
There are really not that many racists anymore as people have become better educated. Even some of those are not bigoted and actually like those of the other race but look upon them as children. (Don't laugh, that is how many Southerners actually felt!)
There are a lot of bigots. They come in all races and nationalities and frankly, they are a drag on society and help no one. I have no use for these people. It would seem that Zimmerman is a bigot.
Everyone is prejudiced about something. You may like Chevy's and dislike Fords and that is prejudice but not a harmful one. A White lady walking alone and seeing a group of Black teenagers coming towards her may tense up with fear. That's prejudice. A Black lady walking alone and she walks by a group of white guys sitting on the back of a pick-up drinking beer and she tenses up, that's also prejudice. It may even be justified and considered smart and cautious but there is prejudice there because they would not have felt that way had the group been of the same race. So let us at least understand what the words mean before trying to toss them out as labels.
Well this just to show u how low people can get. and look who is wearing it . Im sure he has been thru the sysytem once or twice. and as a Det. who works in the HATE CRIME UNIT. There is nothing of a HATE CRIME ABOUT THE T-SHIRT. I WOULD JUST LOVE TO RIP IT OFF AND BURN IT.
Why is this news? this should be immediately stopped on a local level and is not worth the print! I have to bump all except 1 comment. attempting to get their version of justicce by threats, intimidation and racial garbage, what a bunch of losers. The people printing these shirts are making a profit by using the very people they claim to support!! Think about it people, you are being targeted because of your emptional state to make money for someone that does not give a flip abput you or your cause. You are being used, it only makes you look stupid and makes others (that may support you but now won't because those supporters may be white or hispanic) dismiss your feelings/cause!! When you use these tactics you drive away supporters, you do not rally more. just my opinion.
This will only escalate the situation into something worse.
"HATE CRIMES ARE AN ARRESTIBLE OFFENSE"!
" ChiefKMung Again Robocop you take the position that this guy should be arrested! What facts do u have that support that? You don't think there's a reason the SAO or the police haven't made an arrest yet? "
I can see a clear violation of Law by the language usage potentially "INCITING A RIOTOUS SITUATION". Under the Civil Rights Statutes the language is "TUMULTUOUS IN NATURE" (((JUST AS IF THE "N" WORD WERE ON THE SHIRT". I'm sure the F.D.L.E. will have a better understanding of "FIGHTING WORDS" that create riotous situations.
It's tragic the young man died. It's also tragic oothers are making money off his death, like making/selling these T-shirts. I bet the sellers never give a dime of profit to the kid's parents, either !!!!
WOW you can't fix stupid...
The marketing of this idiotic shirt is so stupid, I won't even comment on it.
Disgusting t-shirt and yes a Double Standard is rearing its ugly head! Why is this being made into a Race issue when there is no evidence that Race had anything to do with it? If this was a White or Hispanic or Chinese, or any other nationality kid, would the Race card be played and would people be up in arms as they currently are?
A tragic incident happened resulting in the death of a teenager. The death needs to be fully investigated and the results presented to first the States Attorney to determine if charges should be brought, and then the public needs to be informed either way so this craziness will stop.
If the shooter was wrong, then he will have his day in court and will have to pay the piper
if found guilty. On the other hand, if the shooting was justified, the shooter needs to be exonerated and the findings made public before some of these radical people take the law into their own hands and do harm to the shooter or others as they are currently threatening to do.
And, people like the person in this picture and anyone else who wears this or any other type of inflammatory shirt need to be held accountable for their actions...
I am never surprised. Idiots!
Double standard rearing its ugly head once again.
Oh my God, help us all!
I would not wear that t- shirts any where.
