    Interesting how all those who were so sure Zimmerman used a racial slur are quiet as mice on the topic now that the prosecutor in Florida has spoken. We now know Zimmerman said f**king punks and a**holes. What is also interesting is how technicians and other sound experts almost swore the man used racial epithets.

    Once again, some in the media telling us what we heard and they were WRONG! Lastly, why is it that people are so quick to believe someone used a slur against them? Are you no better than a slur? Is a slur the only thing you have in your arsenal to be offended by?

    It is time for a race timeout.
