    By the time I realized the great positive social significance of making a black guy that popular among people of all races, my negative views of Lee were unfortunately locked in.
    Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

    It has its own thread.

    We're in a state of mental diarrhea
    Talking sh*t a mile a minute
    Or in a state of constipated notions
    Can't think of nothin' but sh*t, and in this world of stinky futures
    Sh*tty memories and constipated 19 now-nows

    Spike Lee and I double posted your wife last night. As far as I can as I remember, she never called for a foul.

    Yes she did, She called a double dribble penality. You didn't hear it, because you had already fallen asleep before she blew the whistle.

    Are you sure it wasn't a 24 second violation?
    I'm tryin' to explain to you that Ronald Reagan was the devil. Ronald Wilson Reagan? Each of his names has six letters? 6-6-6? Man, doesn't that offend you?

    We've been told by KFFL'ers familiar with the area that it's highly diverse. We've also been told that he's make 40+ called to 911. It stands to reason that some of those calls were regarding blacks. In fact, if they only involved whites I'd suspect he hated white people.

    If all those calls were regarding blacks, then I agree he's likely a racist.

    However, there is no data point in this shooting that indicates that Zimmerman is racist or than the fact that Martin is black.

    Reporters are obviously under the impression without having a precise count that a huge majority of the 911 calls were about blacks.

    Not all were about people with identifiable races, or about people at all, and not all the ones about people were about blacks. But it seems as if a very large fraction of the ones that weren't just about open doors or whatever (I forget the details of any info about non-person calls) were about blacks.

    But you know reporters are trying to spin this because it improves ratings.

    If they give hard numbers and data regarding local demographics then you can make up a reasonable opinion. If 50% were about blacks and the area is ~ 50% black, then no biggie. If 20% of the popluation is black and 50% of the calls were about blacks then there may be something to it.

    Anything less substantial is assumption.

    The impression is that 80%ish were about blacks, or more.

    I don't think a nearly complete list has ever been released, however.

    People have been getting into Trayvon Martin's email accounts and so on. If I read the article correctly, he was concerned with normal teenage things, like college applications and weed.
