Oprah Winfrey gives her opinion about the Trayvon Martin Case and how it’s parallel to the Emmett Till case many years ago.

Do you agree with Oprah?
I AGREE. BOY WAS MINDING HIS BUSINESS, AND GOING HOME. BUT HE DIDNT MAKE IT DUE TO THIS RACIST SPIKE. HE IN TEXAS SPEEDING DOWN THE HIGHWAYS NOW WHILE TRAYVON IS 8 FEET UNDER. WOW THATS CRAZY WHEN YOU REALLY SIT DOWN AND ANALYIZE IT. STAND YOU GROUND WITH AN 158PDS CHILD 17 YEARS OLD? STAND YOUR GROWN FOR A CHILD WITH SKITTOS IN HIS POCKET? NOT EVEN A KNIFE HE HAD ON HIM. THIS MAN HOP OUT THE TRUCK AND PROVOKE THE WHOLE SITUATION. WELCOME TO AMERICA
If Trayvon was a white kid, everything else being the same, Zimmerman would have done the same thing. It was Zimmerman’s job as security to question people on private property.
It had nothing to do with race. In the beginning of the call to the police, Zimmerman wasn’t even positive if Trayvon was black. He confirmed it later on in the call.
This case had nothing to do with the “Stand Your Ground” law. Zimmerman was down on his back. How could he have ran?
You and I both know what young men down south do with “skittos” and Watermelon Arizona drink.
Real obviously doesn’t recognize real.
I am so tired of people talking about Zimmerman being a neighborhood watchman. Trayvon Martin didn’t know that. Zimmerman didn’t identify himself. It is the job of the neighborhood watchman to make sure an innocent teenager gets home from the store safely, not to identify the teenager as suspicious, harass him, and kill him before he can return home. What kind of neighborhood watchman does that? It makes me think he is the neighborhood watchman for all other races, and the neighborhood bully for African-Americans.
Also, I can’t believe how the courts got away with pretending stand-your-ground was not a part of the trial. The jurors were clear in their statements that stand-your-ground was a major part of their instructions.
And how can someone get time in jail for killing dogs, but no time for gunning down an innocent kid?
What a shame on you America.
