Bradlee Dean and co-host Jake MacAulay say the media is bias.
It seems like everyone has something to say about the Trayvon Martin killing.

Last month, Martin, a 17-year-old from Florida, was fatally gunned down by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman. Martin was unarmed, unless you count a bag of Skittles and an Arizona Iced Tea.

Zimmerman is calling it self defense. Al Sharpton is drawing comparisons to Civil Rights-era Birmingham, Alabama. Geraldo Rivera blames the hooded sweatshirt.

Now, Bradlee Dean, Minnesota's controversial, rap-metal preacher, has decided to join the conversation. On his radio show, Dean and co-host Jake MacAulay presented their theories on the Martin case. According to the two hosts, it's an open-and-shut case of racism -- against white people.

Jake: "Because the kid's black, and because he's young, all the sudden, this other man is guilty. By the way, the other guy looks Hispanic."

Bradlee: "He is Hispanic. They're trying to blame the whites."

Jake: "So he's Hispanic. And so they pull in, guess who? [In Jesse Jackson impression voice] The Rev. Jesse Jackson. He's going to talk about this."

Bradlee: "Mr. Adulterer himself that wants to be MLK, but he just can't live up to par."

Later in the show, Jake goes onto compare Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton's rhetoric to that of the "gay movement."

Jake: "It's just like Outkast coming up and having a song, Rosa Parks, and it's all about partying, and thinking they're going to tie their wagon onto what is good. And it's just like you see the gay movement tying their wagon onto what was good. You can't do that."

But of course, in the end, the media is really to blame.

Bradlee: "The Hispanic guy's a real happy guy, and then they show his mugshot, right. And then when the media gets a hold of him, the way they distort it, they turn it completely backwards. They forgot to show you the young man, the young black man was going around gang bangin'."

    To me it seems like Trayvons parents only gave the media pictures where he would look good. Jimmy Cliff said it well too... The Harder they Come the Harder they Fall. Those words are so true... Live a live of inner peace and watch your world change on the outside.

    This is such a simple case that it is almost like a bunch or 1st graders talking about it.  Black guy is followed by white guy (not a violation of any law), black guy responds by beating the shit out of the white guy, (violation of the law in any state), white guy shoots black guy to get him to stop beating the shit out of him, (not a violation in 32 states). What is there to understand except now we have all the blacks alledging racisim.  WELL OF COURSE they would, fueling the fire is the Black Panthers, Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpten and all of the other militant ass hole bottom feeders to keep the black white war going.  I say when you start the fight and injur someone you deserve to get shot!!!  You climb on me and beat my ass, I am going to shoot you.  Stop all the black and white crap and just look at one black teen who got what he deserved, I guess sooner than he expected but he just wanted to hurry it up I guess.  I say shoot anyone who does you harm.

    One could make the case that the neighborhood watchman was stalking a pedestrian. When advised by the 911 operator to remain in his vehicle he chose to continue pursuit on foot. He was then allegedly attacked. Or did the pedestrian choose to "stand his ground" and confront the person following him?

    But I think that there is something that we ALL can agree on.  Because Zimmerman has already been convicted in the court of public opinion, if he is not convicted in court and is set free, there will be race riots like you have never seen.  The riots in L.A. back in 1992 were a cakewalk compared to what you will see in the streets all over America.

    According to applications filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office by the family's attorney last week, Fulton (Trayvon's mother) wants to trademark "I am Trayvon" and "Justice for Trayvon" for use in DVDs and CDs memorializing the slain teenager.Looks like mama is lookin' to earn some ca$h money..............

    I find it ironic that this is a racial case - before everyone jumps to their conclusions it's better to hear what the evidence is.  Looks to me Trayvon isn't a role model student, and for sure all the evidence that so far has been talked about suggests he attack the guys.  Trayvon has a history with the policy, drugs and violence.  People shouldn't make this about race - they should make it about bad parenting, bad choices and kids that act like thugs.

    this dude is going to be so played out in 20 years. I'm not sure what part of his legacy will be more scrutinized ... his wacky view points or his crappy music.

    Well, look at the bright side:  With all of the media attention Al Sharpton is getting, that should help him pay off the 3.5 million he owes in back taxes.

    Apparently Mr Dean is a man of many talents. Not satisfied with merely being a homophobic, anti-Semitic, shitty music playing god bother-er who makes Iowa teen girls cry he has now branched into "uninformed racist prick" territory. That's one hell of a personal development plan you've got there Mr. Dean.

    And then we have Al Sharpton creating his own news for his own show.kinda like a firefighter starting a fire.NBC, do you not wish to have future credibility?

    I get a bit annoyed when news outlet call Mr. Zimmerman a "watchman."  I suppose it's literally accurate, but it gives the impression that he was acting in the course of some sort of duty.  He was just a guy.

    There is a lot of people chiming in either for or against the people involved here. The facts and evidence are still sealed to protect the case.

    In the end many people will look dumb for their uneducated stance.

    Sounds like you're getting the version of the story only a first grader would buy. Have you seen the ABC video of Zimmerman being brought in? The one where his clothes are in perfect shape, no grass stains anywhere? His nose and face and head are intact, no signs of blood or injury.  So what exactly is YOUR source for saying that Trayvon beat up Zimmerman?

    But of course no one should get excited just because this murder happened a month ago and no charges have been brought. Hell, Trayvon's parents should just be glad Zimmerman wasn't old skool and used a gun instead of a rope, and the corpse wasn't mutilated afterwards like they did with Emmett Till.

    Zimmerman was not stalking trayvon. While talking to the police he was factional and calm.His voice did have a little concern that trayvon was 'casing' the gated community as they had been under seige from a rash of burglaries. Trayvon caught the attention of zimmerman as he was acting strangly eyeing houses(police report) Zimmerman only pursued to maintain visual contact to see what direction trayvon was going and then when he lost sight he turned to walk to his truck.It was then that Trayvon approached him asking if he had a problem whereas zimmerman answered no. Trayvon replied back that 'well you do now and punched him wrangling him to ground where he proceeded to bash his head.I do feel for the parent's of their son but they are maligning a man without knowing the fact's. Little bit's here and there are now being brought to light that trayvon was not the angel the media and black community have made him out to be. His parent's sealed his school and any police record's to protect their son's reputation. But it's ok if they demolish zimmerman's reputation. I firmly beleive it was self defense and zimmerman is a pawn in provoking race war's.

    Or maybe she's just trying to keep people like Jody from trademarking her son.

    Imagine a white youth up north dying under these circumstances. How would you respond to the "liberal" media trashing the dead kid?

    The American right has degenerated into a cesspool of hate. Party of Lincoln? More like the party of John Wilkes Booth.

    But see, Johnny, we HAVE to make this all about race, because that's what feeds media sensationalism.  Discussing bad parenting, bad choices, and kids that act like "thugs" forces people to have to be accountable for their actions and that will not be tolerated in the Liberal media.  It is always much easier (and socially acceptable to certain segments of the population, aka the Al Sharptons of the world) to blame someone else on bad lifestyle choices.  Remember, the plight of the black man is due to the "oppression and repression" from the white Honky.  In Al Sharpton's mind (and those like him) any action by a black person (good or bad) is justifiable, regardless of the outcome.  However, in this case, being that a black unarmed man (sorry, I don't consider 17-year-olds to be "children") was killed by a non-black person, it justifies the media frenzy, and is the perfect recipe for Al Sharpton to spew his hate, even though he himself does not know all the facts yet.  But for Al Sharpton and to a lesser extent, Jesse Jackson, facts are meaningless aside from the one that Trayvon was black.  Let's say, of example, this was a case of a Hispanic man killing an Asian man, this never would even made the national news.

    Now, in Trayvon's defense, we do not know if he was the product of bad parenting (from what I have seen in the media regarding his mother, she seems like a decent person).  As far as bad choices, Trayvon never had any run ins with the law, and the fact that he was caught with a little bit of dope in his backpack at school....well, C'mon.....think back to when you were 17 and the stupid things that you did.  And finally, and this is where I DO agree with the majority, is that wearing a hoodie does not make you a "thug" or a gangbanger.  If that was the case, I must be a "thug" too because I wear a hoodie when I jog when its cold outside.

    No they won't. The police are leaking everything that makes the kid look bad, and keeping a lid on everything that makes Zimmerman sound like the racist murdering bastard he is. Worse, the organized right (for which Bradlee Dean shills)  is out in full force trash talking a dead kid because the American right may vote Republican, but in their hearts they're still the same lynch-happy racists they were when they called themselves Southern Democrats.

    This was a gangland execution, and Zimmerman was the gangbanger.

    It's ALL B.S. nobody know's what the hell happened, you can believe what you want , but in a court of law it all specurlation and your just adding to the hate . Don't you have better things to do with your time !!!

    If it was a white up here in the North it would be over by now , the F'en News Media won't cover that more then one day , they are the one's keeping this crap going , bad news sells good news don't .

     Who is the lynch mob here?  I've not seen anything other than people describe Zimmerman as careful and considerate - he's even saddened by what has happened.  All I have seen in the news are people rather to quickly calling him a racist.  Pathetic really.

    And since you were there and witnessed this entire incident, I guess I have to agree with you that Zimmerman is a racist murdering bastard.  Because you saw the whole thing.

    Wait what?you say- "Zimmerman sound likethe racist murdering bastard"

    So what, Zimmerman is a Hispanic that is racist towards blacks? 

    So how does political party representation come to play here?  "This was a gangland execution, and Zimmerman was the gangbanger."

    Hey vato, are you saying poco is gone loco?

    awe yes, liberal intelligence...

    If that was a good comment, please explain how your version of reality can depict Bradley Dean as "anti-Semitic."

    Or were you just being a good cheerleader?

    All of George Zimmerman's friends like him? Well hell, I guess this is settled then. No reason to inquire further into a private matter between two people, even if one of them is dead now.

    yeah, because only whites and blacks can hate each other, right? racism can be found in all skin colors against all skin colors. and don't even try to say this tragedy has not become aligned with political parties, it's has. it's really sad that it has, this tragedy should never have become a political party platform.
