Your blogger

When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

If we listen to the true bone thugs of our country, the proponents of "Stand Your Ground", and the Guns Over People - the gun huggers untied society [NRA], we are led to believe that all black males come from the same mold, which might include words like, lazy, food-stampers, drug dealing, gangsta criminals up to now good.

There is nothing that Americans do better - than judging others and racial profiling, whether we know them or not - There are 6 million Trayvon Martin's in this country, with a hoodie, gold teeth, dark skin, teen - and they are automatically bundle into stereotypes, like:

Stupid, Irresponsible, Crack babies, Teen pregnancy, Drop-outs, Incarcerated, Fathers leave their kids, Love fried chicken and Kool-Aid, Lazy, Violent, Live in the ghetto/the projects, Wasted generation, Loud, obnoxious, rude, Nappy hair, Bad attitudes, disrespectful, Hoodlums, Poor, Obese, Dirty, Sex, drugs, porn, weed, Guns, Low job expectations, Speak different English. [This list compiled from over 734 hate mails sent to NFTOS since verdict was released]

If we take a look at George Zimmerman's past, [Content provided by "political blind spot"] via his old "MySpace account, we see a Zimmerman that apes the very stereotypical analogies that the country is associating Martin too. [Full story seen here]

Excerpts from Zimmerman's MySpace Account:
In his biographical blurb, he discusses things he doesn't miss about his former home in Manassas, Virginia: 
I dont miss driving around scared to hit mexicans walkin on the side of the street, soft ass wanna be thugs messin with peoples cars when they aint around (what are you provin, that you can dent a car when no ones watchin) dont make you a man in my book. Workin 96 hours to get a decent pay check, gettin knifes pulled on you by every mexican you run into!”
In an August 24, 2005 blog post, he boasts about his relief about the proceedings in a criminal case. 
Im still free! The ex hoe tried her hardest, but the judge saw through it! Big Mike, reppin the Dverse security makin me look a million bucks, broke her down! Thanks to everyone for checkin up on me! Stay tuned for the A.T.F. charges……
A few days later, he expresses happiness that the other charges against him were reduced to misdemeanors. 
2 felonies dropped to 1 misdemeanor!!!!!!!!!!! The man knows he was wrong but still got this hump, Thanks to everyone friends and fam, G baby you know your my rock!
In 2005, a 20-year-old Zimmerman was arrested and charged after an altercation with a police officer. The same year, his ex-fianceƩ filed a restraining order against him and accused him of domestic violence.

Now if I was to take my perceived view of Zimmerman from his MySpace page, I might perceive him to be of a criminal element - out walking, doing no good - "these Fucking People always get away" Right George? Spoken from a true POV [Point of View] experience evidently!

Was George Zimmerman referencing this due to his own modus operandi as a bone thug, a cop beating, woman beating bone thug ?

The preponderance of evidence is overwhelming in this case, if you look at the totality of Zimmerman v. Martin, one doesn't have to look far to see who the bone thug racist is!

George Zimmerman, profiled and murdered a teen, he was judge and jury in situation that well exceeded his: IQ, his mentality, and most of all, certainly his "soft" physical being.

Robert Zimmerman vigilante rhetoric starts at 2:37

Really Robert Zimmerman? Vigilante? Speaking of your pot and Kettle Moment!

6 jurors are entitled to their view [remember my comment form yesterday: "I'd never want to leave my fate in the hands of 6 people too stupid to get out of jury duty"] of the case - their interpretation of the law [limited in scope] which was based on the evidence presented, [which wasn't much] and that hence is where a portion of this travesty lies. As I said in my blog "System Failure, Death While Walking Black - "This is not so much a proclamation of right vs. wrong, but more so a declaration of the judicial system. Perhaps we need to look more closely at the laws and the interpretation of such and make the proper changes."

There are so many wrongs in this case, where to start? Stop profiling, stop judging, stop racism, and, if your not a cop in real life, well then for gods sake leave the protecting and serving to the real Barney Fife's!
