Zimmerman Not Guilty

What a travesty. What an utter and complete miscarriage of justice.

“Only in America can a dead black boy go on trial for his own murder.” -Syreeta McFadden

Truer words never spoken.

I would say I’m speechless, but I’m not. I’m outraged. Meanwhile, a black woman in Florida is serving 20 years in prison for firing a warning shot over the head of her abusive husband when he tried to attack her. Apparently, justice in Florida IS a matter of black and white.

    I’m afraid racism is alive and well in our country. And conservatives who decry the use of the race card as just a default excuse given by liberals…are unwilling to see the truth even when presented with a dead, black, young man…or an imprisoned, black woman. They merely brush aside those actualities…and continue yapping about their rights. What about the rights of colored folks…blacks, Hispanics, Middle Easterners and so on? I often wish those ultra right-wingers would go occupy another planet all by themselves.

      ” I often wish those ultra right-wingers would go occupy another planet all by themselves.”

      I think that’s the problem. They are so far out there, that they are alien to the rest of us.
