George Zimmerman was arrested today for “felony aggravated assault with a weapon, misdemeanor battery-domestic violence and criminal mischief.”
Let me be REALLY clear here: I am white, and I am a woman. I am not, in any way, shape, or form, saying that domestic violence isn’t a massive fucking problem. I am not saying that Samantha Scheibe wasn’t absolutely right to fear for her life, call the police, and press charges. I am 100% on Samantha Scheibe’s side—but the point I am making is not about her.
This is a man who, as I’m sure you can all *recite* by now, saw a black teenage boy named Trayvon Martin walking down the street, at which point Zimmerman followed Martin in his car, called the police, stopped his car and got out, taking his loaded gun with him, to follow Martin, and shot him to death. Martin was walking home from the store with Skittles and an iced tea.
Shot him to death. Police couldn’t give a shit. They let him go. You all know the rest of the disgusting story, racist story.
The guy points a gun at a white woman? He’s arrested, booked, and held without bail.
C’mon, FOX News, hold another fundraiser for the guy’s legal expenses!
I DARE YOU.
This articulates EVERYTHING I have been feeling about this. The issue here isn’t that this white woman called the police because she feared for her life - that is legitimate and the police acted appropriately. The issue is that the police did not act appropriately the last time this violent aggressor harmed someone. The issue isn’t that the police picked him up in less than 44 minutes, it’s that for Trayvon they didn’t bother to arrest this asshole for 44 days.
This is the first thought to pop into my head when I heard about this.
Has anyone stopped to think that because he has now done this to a white woman, THE TRAYVON MARTIN ATTACK AND DEATH HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH RACISM???? He did that because he was sick and messed up in the head, not because he thought to himself “hey let’s go kill a black guy today”. He probably went after the first person he saw that he thought he could harm, a teenage boy, not a man, a defenseless teenage boy. So stop calling the racism card every time a white person does something that doesn’t sit well with the black, Hispanic, Chinese, or whatever culture. And stop assuming that all white people naturally gang up on other nationalities. Because that’s bullshit.
Yeah! And where is our White History Month or White Entertainment Television?! Stop calling the racism card, y’all.

He groans like Tina Belcher.
Jim Bob Duggar, millionaire and reality TV star of TLC’s series, “19 Kids and Counting,” compared modern day America to the concentration camps of Nazi Germany at the conservative Value Voters Summit.
It’s disrespectful and offensive to use the Holocaust as a cheap insult for everything one doesn’t like about the modern world.
Join us and 4,000 others in telling TLC to stop giving airtime to this conservative extremist.

Obama targets at the fair. I asked if they had any for John Boehner or Mitch McConnell. They had no idea who I was talking about.
Ah, the species that is the American Christian in action…
Also, Lily Potter would have never wanted an abortion, because she was a financially well-off white woman starting a family in a happy marriage with a secure place at the top of wizarding society.
The question you should be asking is what if Merope Gaunt, an impoverished and uneducated single woman who escaped from a severely abusive family only to become pregnant with the unwanted child of a man who wanted nothing to do with her, had had access to an abortion and not had immense social pressure brainwashing her into carrying to term?
Would have never wanted an abortion? Why wouldn’t a “financially well-off white woman” ever want an abortion, though? They have every chance of getting pregnant from rape, having a fetus with a severe birth defect, or simply ending up pregnant when not wanting to be that any other woman might have. Can we stop with the idea that only certain types of women would want or need an abortion?
