commented on My Parents Told Me the Sad Truth About America
"had Trayvon Martin been white, he would have made it home alive" how is this a fact? A lot of people have been soliciting their OPINIONS as FACTS lately. Shame on you for stirring the pot! This kind of thing only makes things worse, for all of us. The advice given about how to act with cops is good, but applies to all people in general. Please stop trying to build the racial divide up higher than it already is.

I hope everyone who wants to deny the verdict in this case ends up in the same situation as Mr Z. was legally acquitted but people are condemning him anyway for their own opinions, that's right OPINIONS on what happened that night. None of the deniers were there and most are knee jerk responding to their PC outrage over a perceived injustice. Remember "the man" didn't find him innocent, a jury of citizens found this to be the case.
If we don't let our legal system take care of the law we all stand to end up guilty by the court of popular opinion. This is what used to get people, white and black alike, lynched in the old days; the public deciding that their opinions were facts and taking the law into their own hands. Do we really want to go back to that?

I live within a half mile of this event space and I have no issues whatsoever with this festival. Sounds like some local prudes taking advantage trying to get rid of the event altogether.

It is too bad that you had such a negative experience on the juice fast. I went on it for 60 days, lost 65 pounds and felt 100% better in all aspects. I am also 50 so there may be a bit more positive effect on older persons.
