Why no comments? I agree with vipond. The covers make a profound statement.

Ditto… vipond and bogeyguy… only through dialogue can social progress truly be made… it IS what being CIVILIZED is all about, though mankind as a whole seems to be lightyears from being ‘civilized.

I will add that ‘I AM TRAYVON’, as well!

The sole creation of the American Media machine.

BTW, don’t ya’ll know that ALL USA citizens are African Americans.
Homo sapiens (aka humans) originated in Africa, where it reached anatomical modernity about 200,000 years ago and began to exhibit full behavioral modernity around 50,000 years ago.

I’d actually love to have some dialogue on the subject with my fellow woodworkers, but it would be wayyyyy in violation of the forums rules.

I’m with Charlie, a subject that violates the rules.

Personally, I don’t think that it would do any good to discuss this on Lumberjocks. It raises a lot of strong feelings all the way around. However, I’m not saying that it shouldn’t be discussed in the proper place which probably is not on the internet at all.

This subject would get out of hand really fast. It’s not just politics, it involves race as well and would turn a ton of people off. We all agree on enjoying woodworking so lets just stick with that.

I find it absolutely ludicrous that we live in a society where you are allowed to kill somebody, just because you say you were threatened. Mr Zimmerman call the police and they told him to back off. Instead this guy goes looking for trouble, instead of walking away, and letting the cops do their job.

To me this is a discussion that we should have on just about any media that is available. Can you imagine getting popped by your neighbor because he felt threatened by your loud table-saw. Just a matter of time before that happens.

Trayvon is a sad story. Hope it never happens again.
