    The President asked... and now, has been answered

    I resent the circumstances that precipitates me posting this. Why does our President feel he should have, from the very beginning interject anything into this case? It is exceedingly inappropriate, and from the beginning was divisive to this country.

    The statement, "...if a white male teen was involved in the same kind of scenario, that, from top to bottom, both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different" is, by itself, divisive. Well sir, it has been different. In fact, here is a case where it was different. Now what? How does that question or this answer solve anything? Shall the white population now respond with accusations of reverse discrimination? And when did George Zimmerman become white?

    Instead of having a dialog of real issues in this country... real racial profiling... how young black males are treated in the criminal justice system, in our schools, and in our communities... the violence in our black communities... a genuine dialog about real issues, we have an Executive office that is bringing this country backwards in time on racial issues in this country and creating further divide.

    In the middle of all this concern for Martin, his family, and the racial issues in this country, why interject SYG laws, and continue to do so? The Zimmerman case had absolutely nothing to do SYG laws and they certainly have nothing to do with racial issues in this country. This President cannot resist the opportunity to use any event, any tragedy, any person - living or deceased - to bolster his own personal political agenda. It is unconscionable.

    I havenít heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    The reality is that if Martin was white, Zimmerman would most likely not followed him that night and there would have been no confrontation. Also if Martin would have been wearing a sports coat and a tie Zimmerman most likely would not have followed him. The reality is there were break-ins in the area and the suspects were black males, so yes he was viewed with suspision because he was a black male. Sorry folks but that is reality, we all do it, it is part of being human.

    Well if the reports were white males would Z follow him wezting a sport coat or a hoodie? Was Z doing his job as neighborhood watch? I would hope Z would have not just turned and went the other way. We dont know Z's character but several have shown him to NOT be prejudice. As for the other cases, yes, there is racial profiling involved. Why do white people, hispanic, asian and European have spokes people like sharpton, and Jackson? Would that be considered descrimination? I like to give everyone one chance th show their real personality but society is making that decision more and more everyday.we should come together as a country and put a stop to corrupt politics. Good luck defending that one.
