I haven't seen the race card played in a court of law since the O.J. Simpson trial.
Jesse Jackson is complaining there were no blacks on the Zimmerman jury. Although he says protest peacefully, his actions show just the opposite. These demonstrations are not spontaneous; they have been well planned.
Creating civil unrest in cities across the nation does not benefit anyone.
It is hard for me to understand why the media paid so much attention to the Zimmerman trial when there have been so many black children killed in Chicago.
Why are the people in Chicago protesting the Zimmerman case when they should be protesting the murders in Chicago? Where is the outrage? And where are they when the murders are so out of control in Gary that the mayor has asked our governor to send in the state police to bring order to the city. Where is the outrage?
I hope someday people will respect the law enough that when a jury makes a decision it will stand.
