Well I am sure most of you know the verdict that was handed down recently between Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman. The reason why it took me so long to write about it is because there are many voices about this particular verdict and how it was handled.
Mr. Zimmerman got off by the letter of the law and though it was not justice for the Martin family, it did show how much proof you need in order to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that you broke the law.
This just makes the case even more sad. A young man lost his life at the hands of a man who was warned on 2 occasions not to follow him. It almost seemed as if the universe was warning Mr. Zimmerman that this would not go well for him and now it hasn’t.
His family is now worried that some vigilante will come after him. Truth of the matter is, no one will want to touch George Zimmerman. His actions have now set in motion a huge set of events for him, his family and everyone that defended him. His name will go down in infamy and in this day of social media, it will not be forgotten.
Many people wish to play the race card and though it is part of it, it is not the main fact. The fact is someone was murdered. Can we as people comprehend that? A young man was murdered. He was coming home and defended himself against a man who clearly was itching to murder someone or else why would he have had a gun and bullet chambered? Anyone could have died that night and we lost a young man.
The media now wishes to murder Trayvon further by slandering him with allegations of theft and wrongdoing. A young man died. He did not rob the place he purchased his skittles and Arizona ice tea.
The black community is up in arms and are figuring what is the best course of action to take. Realize that this case is a wake up call for everything wrong with what we take for granted. When it is black on black crime, we do not bat and eyelash. But that is because as community, we are used to use murdering each other over the most base of things. It doesn’t blip on our radar or our country’s radar when minorities hurt each other. We expect the same treatment when it happens to a person of a different skin tone hurting someone else of another skin tone. WE ARE ALL PART OF THE HUMAN RACE. We need to remember that.
When actually start valuing all human life maybe a we can get a some things fixed.
Whatever people wish to do Florida, they really should do the whole country. Every state has had these same cases and we have yet to boycott any other state.
Just my Two cents
