A new study released by a research center is claiming that number of whites and Republicans are growing tired of hearing about the death of Trayvon Martin. According to a study by Pew Research Center, 56 percent of Republicans think there’s been too much Martin coverage, compared to 25 percent of Democrats.

The study also concluded that 43 percent of whites believe the case has garnered too much coverage compared to only 16 percent of blacks.

Pew gathered their research through a “nationally representative sample of 1,000 adults” conducted from Thursday, March 29 through Sunday, April 1 about top new stories.

As previously reported, FBI officials have confirmed that they’re now investigating the shooting death of the unarmed teen.

    Only 43% of whites think the coverage has been excessive? may be some hope, after all. Really, I have gotten sick of it, but only because of the delays and stalling by the Man. This sort of Rorschach Test of our populi lets one know where we are in the evolution of humanity. A lot of lessons here for the folks who aren’t listening.

    Ask any black about the reality of black on black crime,unwanted black births,abortion rates,and domestic black violence and you’ll see how quick they “get tired of hearing it”.we SHOULD get tired of hearing it,i didn’t shoot him and until the final FACTS come out it only serves to divide us.

    I am black and sick of hearing about the little thug. Maybe it is because Im educated. So “Pew Research” do a study on that. All races that are educated vs the ones who aren’t- who is sick of hearing about it. Or how about people who hold a job vs people on welfare- who is sick of hearing about it. Im sorry a life was snuffed out so young. it is sad. BUT his life was going no where, and he was trouble. Parents you need to keep a tighter hold on your kids. STOP breeding it into them that the world owes you something. Get off welfare and make something of yourself before having kids.

    Gotta keep going, I cant let this go.
    It is crap like this article that keep this country divided. It will take a cataclysmic event to put this country back on track. Everyone is taking sides. Repub’s vs Dems,, Poor vs Rich, Blacks vs Whites (or should i say the rest of the world since anyone not black is now “considered” white), Men vs Women, Believers vs Non Believers. It is making this woman TIRED! We can’t go about our daily business without hearing this crap. I can’t sit down with my white girlfriends without ignorant “jokes” about being a traitor to my race, or saying Im trying to “act” white. What in the hell is a white person supposed to act like vs a black person. IGNORANCE. Stupid people saying that only blacks cant experience racism. What? Have you fallen that far that you actually believe that? Im sick and embarrassed of all of it. I have never been uncomfortable in the skin God gave me because i don’t accept what ignorant people say. The media is not going to stop until they have this country in a full blown race war. So Danielle Canada- your a racist, sick, conniving piece of trash to put out this garbage. You are giving black women a bad name
