Note of Despair
So, the jury found George Zimmerman not guilty of murder, in any sense.
It was to be expected-believe it or not.
After OJ Simpson’s acquittal in his murder trial for allegedly killing 2 people, it is to be considered normal .
White men kill unarmed black teens and get away with it. Rich famous black men kill their estranged spouses and get acquitted.
If you’re white, or rich and famous, there is a different kind of court system that works for you.
We have one of the most racist countries in the world, where “justice” is given out to white men on a regular basis, and everyone else is guilty automatically.
You can be any color you want in this country-but it doesn’t count unless you’re white.
And that’s all I’m going to say on the matter, except for this:
Trayvon Martin is still dead-and his killer is walking free.
Justice was not served today.
