Today marks one month since Trayvon Martin was murdered by George Zimmerman and still this man is out there free to kill again. What does it take for a real criminal to get arrested these days? What the hell is going on?!? Oh… wait… I know… you know… we all know. Once again people of color have been betrayed by law enforcement officials attempting to sweep a crime under the carpet to avoid exposure to the truth.
What is that truth you might ask? Well, it’s like I’ve said before; this is still a nation full of bigots and racists. No matter how you might want to believe it’s getting better, it isn’t. We might not see anything happening in our daily lives or even on the news and forget these problems exist. Unfortunately, it takes tragedies like the murdering of Trayvon Martin to remind us that all the Band-Aids in the world won’t fix the problem.
This problem is fundamentally attached to the individual souls of our nation. The thought process needs to be changed in those that lived that lie all of their lives and it needs to stop being taught to our children. I know, these are just words but it’s the truth.
This is just my sad little opinion.
