What could possibly go wrong?

In the wake of the Trevyon Martin shooting, this is quite likely the last thing that needs to happen:

Neo-Nazis patrolling Florida town where Trayvon Martin was killed

Yes, that's what everyone thinks of when they think of group named after the Nazis, that they are a civil rights organization. Frankly, I almost hope some retired Jewish veteran sees these knuckle draggers waving a swastika and open fires on them, citing the stand your ground laws as justification. They would certainly have a better case for doing so than George Zimmerman did for killing Treyvon Martin.

But remember the NRA says that guns make us all safer. And by "Us" I can only assume they mean terrified bigoted cracker morons with more ammunition than brains. Especially in America's "post racial society" where shit like this keeps on happening.

The last decade has ushered in an era where racists and white supremacists feel very much emboldened. When you have official government policies making deriding and targeting brown people (be they Mexican or Middle Eastern) totally acceptable, of course those who worship at the alter of white purity are going to strike against any coloured group they despise.

Meanwhile, there was a shooting spree in a black neighbourhood in Tulsa. And no, it wasn't gang or drug related :-(
