He was told "you don't need to do that" in regards to following Martin. That's very different than being told "stop doing that" by the dispatcher. A minor point, but worth repeating.

I've pointed this out before, but I will again:

911 operators are not cops. You do NOT have to follow their orders.

They can only make suggestions, it is not illegal to disobey them.

Don't forget how it is racist to discuss crimes committed black on black.

Re: Trayvon Martin


50% Hispanic + 50% White = White (Zimmerman)
50% Black + 50% White = Black (Obama)

Makes sense, right?
Race is such a silly thing. Obama is as much white as he is black, yet nobody considers him white. But the black community doesn't treat Zimmerman the same way.

Well the workaround they invented was that the baby daddy determined identity, so it isn't racist... it's just sexist.

It's because hispanics are a subset of whites?

It's like saying "I'm not white, I'm White-Irish!" (yes thats a racial distinction, at least in Britain).

No it's not. The US government and census makes a very clear distinction between the two. I dare you to go to a prison in CA and tell a hispanic inmate he is white.

But biologically, yes, you are right. But my point still stands of why we call someone who is 50% black or even 10% black a black person, but not the other way around.

Ever seen a blonde blue eyed chick with skin that could only have been more white if she had been albino tell a 'white' dude who has dark skin, brown hair, and damn near black eyes that she didn't want him to help her because he was white and she wasn't... because she was Brazilian.

I have. Most ridiculous case of racism I've seen to date.

They'll just argue that being white is the biggest perk of all.

It's all bullshit. Normal people that don't want to milk the system know that crap like that is bogus.

It's "Oh woe is me, I'm a lazy prick that lives on welfare...must be the WHITE MAN keeping me down."

People that aren't idiots don't fall for this.
