^ Free will makes no sense (you can't even imagine how it could work). Neither causality or chance (the only ways to describe events), or any combination of those two give you the kind of freedom people think they have.
I don't understand your argument about free will making no sense. Are you saying that everyone's life follows a predetermined script and the actions of an individual aren't as a result of their own thoughts?
Eh, I feel that life is sort of like an interactive movie/game if you will, and our concious state/thoughts are like a player, and we think that our choices have a huge effect on it, but the truth is we all get the same ending. Death.
Maybe it would of been a different outcome, but the only reason it made the news in the first place was because the media wanted to potray it as a white on black crime to get higher ratings.
To be fair, it is a fact that Zimmerman racially profiled Martin regardless of what actually happened in the confrontation after that.
Is it? I don't remember the case honestly. I only remember the media distorting his 9-11 call to make it sound like a racially charged event.
Thats what i remeber too. I recall them playing the tape where they thought Zimmerman said 'Coon' time after time after time. However dont remember the news saying that they where wrong and Zimmerman didn't say that, they just moved onto the next piece of evidence they thought would get Zimmerman into trouble.
Plus to be fair everyone profiles each other the first time we see someone.
Yeah, it is true, the media tried to make it worse. But he did call 911 because he saw a black person walking, and he did chase a guy for no reason after 911 told him not to. He had a history of being an overzealous watchman who failed to become a cop over and over again, and a history of calling 911 for stuff like that.
He was trying to look after his neighborhood and thought that Trayvon may of been a problem, the problem is that everyone made it a race crime when it wasn't. The races should of never of been an issue but everyone makes it a issue when there doesn't need to be one. Plus a operator told him to stand down not a police officer.
If a unkown black youth was in my neighborhood i would be suspicious, I think everyone would and people who say they wouln't are either lying or foolish.
Yup, because the black youth are thugs.
Why do people forget the fact that he had his hood up because it was raining?
A lot of people, imo, who come off as non racist are deeply inside one themselves. It's the whole politically correct, the we are all equal social pressure that make us think that a black as coal man is the same as an irish who never saw the sun light.
I am not racist at all, but how many of you white folks would marry a black women or man, and not the african american type, the real afrikans, black as the night.
This applies to black with white and other races aswell.
I'm just being honest, don't burn me.
Well, I LOVE white/oriental girls so......
It's a culture thing really.It's honestly an ignorant word, and I can't see WHY a white person would want to use an ignorant ass word in a non-ironic way.
I remember reading that Wolverine/Hugh Jackman was supposed to make a Cameo in Spider-Man(Sam Remi) but they couldn't find his costume. IDK, I just hope that Marvel can get the rights to Spidey and X-Men so we can see X-Men VS. Avengers.
Of course - racism is bad, but we have to draw the line somewhere. There clearly is a difference between hammering a burning cross into a black person' front lawn and dressing up like this http://ll-media.extr...ace-340x440.jpg for Halloween.
What is that supposed to be ?
That to the average onlooker is a gal who used the tanning bed for a bit too long and/or used too much makeup. But according to the PC brigade it's perpetuating a racial stereotype.
What? That's not even close to being racist. Blackface shouldn't be considered racist unless someone does it just to be an ignorant jackass.
