commented on Zimmerman Signed Autographs at a Florida Gun Show
There's no stupidity on the part of the organizers. They got attention, just like they wanted. And the bulk of people who went to the show probably still think Zimmerman was in the right. The fact that they're all wrong doesn't preclude the success of a stunt like this.

Raku is right. Any time someone of a different gender/creed/color/sexuality tells you that you're doing something wrong in your work as an ally, you are. No matter how many people of the same persuasion tell you you're doing something right.
Of course the problem arises when a person of one disadvantages group - let's say a poor black woman - tells you one thing and another person of a different diadvantaged group - let's say a physically disabled Latino - tells you something different. Those situations can only be settled in a steel-cage deathmatch involving farm implements.

If you look at the fact that all of North America, Africa, and what appears to be all of central and southern Asia is colder than normal, I'm not sure about Saunders' statement. It's not just 'oine outspoken corner' that's colder than normal.

@1: Every gamer knows what it's for and why it's there. And it was announced ages ago that players who treated other players poorly - with racist, misogynistic, or homophobic language - would have trouble playing online with the Xbone. It's only media outlets trying to drum up controversy for it.
