The One Person We Should All Hate in the Trayvon Scandal

The One Person We Should All Hate in the Trayvon Scandal

As I somewhat suspected, the circumstances surrounding the Trayvon Martin Scandal have gotten murkier over the past week. Remember, the media started by saying that Zimmerman was white. It turns out that he was actually Hispanic. They issued a correction. The story then read like this.  The 17-year-old, who is black, was walking to a friend’s home in a gated community in Sanford, Fla., when a neighborhood-watch volunteer*, 28-year-old George Zimmerman, spotted him. Zimmerman, whose father says identifies as Hispanic, called the cops to report a suspicious person. They told him…

Why I’m not recapping the Celebrity Apprentice

The Celebrity Apprentice is really easy to watch but impossible to enjoy. It’s the TV equivalent of elevator music – if elevator music made you dumber and declared itself “Da numbah one music in the country” every five seconds. That’s the main problem with Celebrity Apprentice. Trump makes all these outlandish claims – about the show, about himself, about the contestants, and none of them are even close to true.

If they reported the real score, which is now 52-20, would you keep watching the basketball game?

It’s legal for a white guy to shoot a black kid holding skittles…or not even close

Now that we realize the man protecting invisible children was crazy, the media is moving on to the next injustice. In case you haven’t heard, 17 year old Trayvon Martin was shot dead in some sort of altercation with George Zimmerman. The reason the case is attracting so much attention is because Florida has a “stand your ground” self defense statute (Zimmerman has yet to be arrested), and because Martin was unarmed and holding skittles. Now let’s be honest, holding skittles doesn’t actually make someone less dangerous. If I asked…
