So a Hispanic shoots a black and is acquitted by women, but it’s still white men’s fault.

After seeing all I’ve seen… I think that Tumblr’s honestly not the best place to be at. Checking posts like a slave, and seeing perfectly good opinions and truths being put to the dirt merely because others don’t concur, all the damn negativity and the fact that positivity is disguised in personal insecurity and sarcasm… it weighs down your soul.
I am sorry for Martin’s death. But I am incredibly happy that Zimmerman was declared not guilty. This country was founded with rules and regulations. To deprive the people of such rights strips morality off this nation. “Innocent until proven guilty,” “right to bear arms,” and “stand your ground,” in this Florida case make all the difference. Zimmerman could have stayed in the car and not persued, yes. But Martin could have not punched him and react in the way he did. Martin had as much right as Zimmerman to be there, yes. As much right as he had to be somewhere else other than an area he didnt go to frequently at 7:00pm,wearing a hoodie in heat. Zimmerman could have been smarter about it, yes. But that doesnt take away from Martin’s reaction and how BECAUSE of that reaction, Zimmerman shot him. Which, btw… as a child confronted by a stranger, my first reaction wouldnt have been to punch him, but to run and scream for help. Martin’s a child alright. Rest his soul in peace, and all my condolenses to his family… but this is not a black/white deal. This is a self defense situation and it has already been dealt with.
People are concerned with the profiling, discrimination and thus, end of Trayvon Martin’s death, mourning the man he could have become and stating that his past doesn’t determine his future. Wouldn’t the same thing apply for an unborn life? What happens to the being they could have been? Why the double standard…?
I’m gonna keep the account open for a while, ‘cause I’m interested in seeing the responses. After that, I’m done. If anyone’s interested in further artwork and stuff, my facebook fanpage is artsymar. You’re free to like.
Keep it humble. Stay classy.
My sister said “make your own human super hero!” So… I’m giving it a shot. WIP!
Between yesterday and today, I kinda got to thinking about this: what if what you’ve thought of yourself-who you think you are, what you think you like, how you think you think- is mistaken… and you realize that how you envision yourself is erroneous? What’s your point of comparison? Your parting premise, persay?
Also, congrats to Zimmermann on his successful verdict
