First is was Treyvon and now it's Jordan Davis. When will all this violence stop? Why do people feel it's ok to shoot people just because they have a gun. On this episode of the Real Deal we talk about the Jordan Davis case and talk about what we can do to not have another angel taken from us.
The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.
We teach our kids to stay away from bad crowds. But when it comes to people that will kill you, we teach them that they have rights. Jordan Davis had a right to play music and now he’s dead. This program commentary is about this, Michelle Obama and more.

The tragic death of this 17 yr.old in Novermber of 2012 almost went unnotice due to the Murder of another 17 yr. old, Trayvon Martin. Jordan Davis was gunned down by a 45 white year old man who rode up on Jordan Davis who was sitting in back of an Suv and Michael Dunn, the white male told the kids to turn down their loud music... what insued after that was one of the most haynous acts of human kind. We will discuss the similarities of Jordan Davis's murder along with Trayvon Martin's murder and how this nation has made young African American boys/teens an endangered species!
Michael Dunn was convicted Saturday of three counts of attempted murder for shooting into a carful of teenagers after an argument about loud music, but jurors couldn't agree on the most serious charge of first-degree murder. Dunn was charged with fatally shooting 17-year-old Jordan Davis in 2012 after they got into an argument over loud music that was coming from the parked SUV Davis was in outside a Jacksonville convenience store. Dunn, who is white, had described the music to his fiancee as "thug music." Dunn claimed he acted in self-defense, testifying he thought he saw a firearm pointed at him from the SUV as Davis yelled insults at him and the argument escalated. No weapon was found in the SUV. Three friends of Davis also were in the vehicle.
"That defendant didn't shoot into a carful of kids to save his life. He shot into it to save his pride," Assistant State Attorney John Guy told the jury. "Jordan Davis didn't have a weapon, he had a big mouth."
The trial was the latest Florida case to raise questions about self-defense and race; Dunn is white and the teens were black. It came six months after George Zimmerman was acquitted of any crime for fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla., about 125 miles south of Jacksonville. The Dunn trial was prosecuted by the same State Attorney's Office as was the Zimmerman case.
Tune in as Stacey B. and Miss Fancy speak on the myth of dangerous black kids and the Jordan Davis case. They will also speak on the Real Housewives of Atlanta's Mama Joyce and her potentially trying to frame her daughter's fiance, Todd.
Lastly, Stacey and Miss Fancy will also speak on the latest comments from Toni Braxton regarding her divorce. The singer stated to talk show host Bethanny, that she and her ex-husband are doing well because they had a "white divorce" as opposed to a "black divorce." Is this a bad joke or offensive? Fancy and Stacey will discuss!

On this episode Animal Brown and Spike Lou discuss the role of "thug music" in the murder of Jordan Davis and whether the responsibility lies on the artist or consumer. They also speak on the backlash from NIcki Minajs single art, Young Thug getting signed to Cash Money and Drakes beef with Rolling Stone.
Citizens across the U.S. have expressed outrage at the verdict in the Jacksonville Florida murder trial of Michael Dunn for the killing of unarmed teenager Jordan Davis. Although convicted of three counts of second degree murder, the charge of first degree murder resulted in a hung jury. Again the "stand your ground law" defense was used as an excuse for Michael Dunn, a middle aged white man, for killng Jordan Davis, an unarmed teenager sitting in his car playing music, which Michael Dunn complained was too loud. Now, many are calling for a boycott of Florida, one of 23 states with Stand Your Ground Laws, which many say are just a mask for racists to use to kill blacks under the guise that they "felt threatened." How would such a boycott really affect the State of Florida? How would it be conducted? What services would people stop purchasing? How would an economic backlash affect the average Florida citizen? Could this really pressure lawmakers to repeal "Stand Your Ground" laws?
