There is an uproar in America about this tragedy, maybe a murder, maybe not, and I just want to interject this. It is a act by a single person on another person and not an indictment of anything larger regarding race relations in our country. In my view, the killing of this young man is unacceptable in a civilized country. It is not a white on black issue. Apparently the shooter, Mr. Zimmerman, is half white and half Peruvian. So it has to be simply a bad decision by a man who should perhaps not have been carrying a weapon.
With Al Sharpton heading down to Florida stir things up, my fear is people will not wait for all the facts and do something stupid to further aggravate the situation. I think protesting the killing of this young man is perfectly within the rights of anyone who thinks and says this was wrong. What should not be exploited (but it already has been) is a black/white/Hispanic racial issue. Too many hucksters in the race baiting game exploit the differences of people simply because they are a different color of skin pigment. This should not be listened to. The killing should be investigated thoroughly to get to the truth and we all want justice. It appears to me Trayvon was killed by a person on a power trip because he had a gun in his hands.
So America needs to mourn the loss of the young man. America needs to fully investigate the killing. America needs to take a deep breath and count to ten. Do not let the race hustlers stir up the hate in their hearts and infect the rest of us.
