Here we go again with the black community screaming about racial prejudice. What about the 2,000 young black men killed since Trayvon Martin? Is there no justice for these young men? Do the Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have to have media coverage to spout their platitudes for them?
Even your president is getting involved. Would President Barack Obama be so quick to start new investigations had things been the other way? Had Trayvon Martin killed George Zimmerman would there be this big upraising of protest? If Zimmerman had been black, would there have been such media coverage? I think not.
One thing that puzzles me: Where were the pics of Trayvon as he looked the night this all took place? The ones showing a 6-foot-tall muscular young man, not the 12-year-old.
Our courts have ruled to let it go. We do not need the fires of racism stoked. We need to stop turning anything involving whites into an automatic racially motivated incident.
